Bull American Bull Dog Large Adult Male URGENT! LIGHT HEARTWORM POSITIVE! 2 years old. Handsome and loving.  Bull lived with other dogs and lots of kids, between 4 and 15 years old. He was great with all! Bull likes to play, roll in the grass, go for walks and spend time with people! He has a loving heart and wants to be a forever family member, living indoors and going outside for exercise, fun and adventure with the people he loves. Bull can climb fences and needs his new family to be aware of this so that they can keep him safe when he is outside!
Lucas Pit Bull Terrier Mix Large Adult Male URGENT! 2 years old, 50lbs. Lucas loves to run and play. Because he is little more than a puppy, he has a fair amount of energy, so he would love to have a home where he will get nice long walks, plenty of play time, and of course, lots of toys. Like all young dogs, Lucas will benefit from training and structure. Lucas is good with other dogs and loves people!
Delbert Bluetick Coonhound/Bloodhound Mix Large Adult Male URGENT! Light Heartworm Positive! 2 years old. Majestic definitely applies to this gorgeous hound! Delbert will need a home experienced with the hound breeds, and one that goes on lots of hikes, daily walks, and keeps a stock of chew toys readily available!

Boomer Hound Mix Large SENIOR Male MEDICAL ISSUES HAVE BEEN TREATED! 10 years old. This older boy has led a life of neglect. We believe he was an outside dog, possibly life on a chain, or in a 10x10 dog pen. He is of excellent weight and appears to have been cared for at one point, but he had a very large tumor on his shoulder, an eye which was bulging grotesquely from his skull, causing him constant pain and headache, and was heartworm positive. Whatever his life before - it did not appear to include regular vet care. Boomer is a GREAT dog. For all the discomfort he has lived with, he's all wags and wiggles. He LOVES people. He CRAVES attention. He LOVES LOVES LOVES butt scratches! This boy deserves a life of comfort, of love - and free from pain.

Helga Pit Bull Terrier Medium Adult Female RESCUED! LONGEST SHELTER RESIDENT! HAS $300 SPONSORSHIP! $5 ADOPTION FEE! About 2 to 3 years old. Good with dogs and cats. Loves to run and play in the pool. Helga is full of energy. She needs a person who loves the outdoors.

 Trundle Foxhound Large Adult Male URGENT! HEARTWORM POSITIVE!  Trundle is approximately 3 years old  and heartworm positive. TRUNDLE is a gorgeous 3 year old. His manners are as proper as his shiny coat! This guy will patiently stand to be petted on without jumping. For being such a young dog, Trundle is extremely laid back. He would love to have his very own home for the holidays. He is good with dogs, cats, and children so just about any home would be a great match for this boy.

SISSY Pit Bull Terrier Young Female -  Sissy is a baby at only 6 months of age. This poor baby has had her entire world upside down, and ended up at the scary, noisy animal shelter. Fortunately for Sissy, she has her entire life ahead of her. And man, is Sissy the whole package! This pretty girl is HW Negative, Housebroken, Crate Trained, has been tested with dogs, cats & children and passed with flying colors. In any new situation, her new owner will need to ease her into introductions with new people and fur siblings and once she has a minute to warm up, she will be perfectly at ease. It took Sissy about 10 minutes to bond with 'grandma” as you can see in the pictures! Grandma took the time to get physically on Sissy's level, spoke sweetly to her, and touched her reassuringly! This did the 'trick,' folks..  Speaking of tricks, Sissy even knows a few! Including “Show me your paw” which was a great help when Amber was trimming her nails! What a doll.

   Buck Pit Bull Terrier Mix Large Adult Male EXTREMELY URGENT! NO CATS!  his sweet 5 year old needs to find a new home ASAP! He lived with 2 small breed dogs, did great with them but needs to learn not to play rough with them. He has been around a larger dogs and did well with them also. Buck has never been around cats. He has been around children ages 3-6 and wants to play with them, but he is so big, he knocks them down but wants to give them lots of kisses. Buck had the run of the house and was not ever crated. He does well even alone, walks well on a leash, doesn't pull very much and loves riding in cars, He is already neutered and up to date with vacs and is also heartworm negative. Just an all around SWEET BOY!!!
  Molly Shepherd/Mastiff Mix Large Young Female URGENT! RESCUE ONLY! NOW SPAYED AND TREATED FOR HEARTWORM!  Molly was found running loose with no owner. No one has been in to look for her. She appears to be a very young girl, maybe 10-12 months old. She is a larger girl at 77 pounds. She was limping so x-rays were done. The veterinarian who x-rayed Molly said that both of her hips are functional, but she has a slight luxation in her left hip and some muscle loss in her left rear thigh. The veterinarian did not feel that she needed FHO surgery and recommended weight management and exercise with no restrictions She is a very sweet and well mannered girl. She unfortunately tested positive for heartworm, but has been treated. This girl can't take another strike against her. She has a strong will to live and give love to everyone around her.
Tucker Beagle Adult Male URGENT! NEEDS RESCUE! VICTIM OF A CRUEL SNAP TRAP!! Tucker was found as a stray with a leg snap trap on his foot. Luckily he was able to be saved in time before he died from blood poisoning from his grossly infected foot. Unfortunately, the trap had caused so much damage his leg had to be amputated.
Zeus Lab Mix Large Adult Male RESCUED! HAS SKIN ISSUES! Poor Zeus. He came in looking terrible. He is 8 years old and his owner moved and could not take him ( a blessing really). It was found that he has demodectic mange, which is non-contagious but needed medication to get him better. Zeus is doing much better now that he is on a treatment plan, he has been at the shelter since August.
He needs a home ASAP. He also needs a volunteer who might come and walk him a few times a week. Being 8 years old, it would help him to move around more. It also helps make his stay at the shelter better and allows us to get a better feel for his personality and what kind of home would be the best for him.

Sky Pit Bull Terrier/Dogue de Bordeaux Large Adult Male Sky is a 2 year old pit that has been with the shelter for far too long. Although he is currently with a foster family, he is in desperate need of a home of his own. This big beefcake does great with other dogs, doesn't pay any attention to cats and loves to spend his days playing and lounging. Sky is already housebroken, neutered and current on all vaccines. This boy had a rough start to life and is learning and thriving in his foster home but will need a home with a strong leader who will continue working with him every day.
