Dogs Available for Adoption

 

Olivia

Olivia came to us in terrible shape. She was covered in open sores, her skin was infected, and she had almost no hair. And her previous owner must have cropped her ears at home – there is almost no ear flap left. Yet despite all of that, Olivia has been a model patient. She has done very well for her medicated baths and will even lift her paws to let you wash them off after she comes back in. We recently discovered that Olivia is allergic to a number of environmental allergens as well as food. One of the things ...

Claire’s Puppies

Come meet our newest crew! We have 9 puppies who are a true mix. We don't know what breed they are--we just know they're cute! We're guessing they'll be between 40-60 pounds fully grown. They're a lovable, playful and energetic litter. A place to run and a lot of affection is just what each one of these pups are looking for. (Fences are preferred.) They love people of all ages!  Adoption nights are Wednesday and Thursday, 9/20 and 9/21. Puppies will be available at a later date. Claire, the mom, will be available in a few weeks. After she's done ...

Dot

Hi! My name is Dot. I weigh about 6 pounds and am a Chihuahua mix. My foster mom tells me I am a sweetie pie. Sounds like dinner where is it? I really do enjoy my food and a few fingers to go along with if you have some. That is why my mom says I probably would not be good for young children. My  favorite place in the world is on your lap. Preferably under a blanket on your lap. I am a real lover. I get along well with everyone and everything.             ...

Winston

Winston looks like a dog who has not experienced much kindness in life. He came to us with significant hair loss, was at least 15 pounds underweight, and had two rather large tumors that had to be removed. X-rays also revealed that he has some arthritis in his spine. But after several weeks of TLC and plenty of food (and some good pain meds), Winston is starting to act and feel like a new dog. He really enjoys hanging out with Opossum (who is also available for adoption) and he has done well when we introduced him to cats. He ...

Latte – Pending Adoption

Do you love coffee? Do you love tea? Then you'll love Latte, come and see. Latte is a 4 year old Chihuahua mix that is just so sweet.  She is housebroken, loves to play with balls and her favorite position is in your lap.  She is very laid back, follows you everywhere and tolerates a lot. She came in with a bad ulcer on her eye but we've got that all healed.  She does have a condition called "dry eye" and will need daily eye drops the rest of her life (don't worry, it's not Restasis). You won't have any trouble putting ...

Swish

Despite her young age, Swish has already been through a lot. Swish arrived at Pet Refuge after many months of untreated – and most likely very painful – ear infections. There was so much swelling and scar tissue built up that our vet decided that her best chance at a pain-free life would be to remove her ear flap. To make matters worse, Swish also has some scarring around her muzzle. Yet even though she might look like a train wreck, she is the sweetest and most endearing train wreck you will ever meet. Swish is a 2-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback ...

Dee Dee

Dee Dee just doesn’t understand why she keeps getting overlooked. This 5-year-old Hound mix is about as sweet as she could possibly be and she would like nothing more than to find her forever family. Dee Dee loves belly rubs, climbing into your lap, and leaning into you for some scratches. She usually has a big smile on her face and does a little happy dance when you tell her that it’s time for a walk or some playtime in the yard. We have recently started introducing Dee Dee to other dogs and she has done well. She would prefer ...

Nova

Nova is 2 months old and all puppy. She loves to play and is crate trained for the most part. Nova requires a fenced-in yard. (*) ...

Panda

Introducing Panda! Panda is a 2-year-old Staffordshire Terrier. This handsome boy is a charmer and loves to entertain our volunteers and say hello to everyone. He is a big, muscular boy who loves to run and jump and would thus not be the best match for young children. He would make a great companion for an active individual who likes to go running or hiking and who enjoys throwing a ball. We require a securely fenced yard for him.   ...

Bogart

Handsome like Humphrey Bogart, our Bogart is a 5-7-year-old Catahoula Leopard Dog mix. With his gorgeous spotted fur and soulful brown eyes, Bogart is popular with the ladies and Macie, in particular, is quite smitten with him. Bogart has done very well around our female volunteers, but he can be leery around men. He has a protective nature and will let you know if there is a stranger approaching his territory. We believe that he would do best in a home without young children and too much commotion. Bogart also requires a fenced-in yard.     Read More

Frito

Looking for a 100-pound attitude in a 10-pound body? That’s Frito for you. And it is most likely his attitude that got him into trouble in the first place. Frito was picked up by Animal Control after he had been attacked by another dog. Luckily, the little guy wasn’t seriously injured and is now ready to find a forever home that will continue to work with him on his housebreaking. Frito is a happy, friendly dog who has done well when we introduced him to a small dog and a cat. However, he would much prefer to be the boss ...

Journey

When this sweet 5-6 yr old lab  mix came to us heartworm positive,  we knew she had a journey to complete,  so we named her Journey.  She has completed her heartworm treatment and is ready to find her forever home. Journey is looking for a home with older children and a fenced yard. She loves to play fetch with tennis balls and will probably do best in a home as the only pet. Journey would like to remind everyone how important heartworm preventative is and to please make sure your dogs are kept on it, so they don't have to ...

Lily

Hey Everyone! I am Lily and Pet Refuge is taking care of me because my heart is broken. The doctor will tell you that I have a severe heart murmur.  I take three expensive medications multiple times a day to help my heart work. I am only seven years old and will need to be on these medications for the rest of my life. That's a lot of medication to keep my little heart ticking, but Pet Refuge is convinced that I am worth it!! I just love these people!   So if you think you could sponsor me to help with my ...

Opossum

Opossum is a Shepherd mix of about 7-8 years old. He originally came to us from another shelter and it was thought by them that he had a knee injury that needed repaired because of the way he walked and moved around. After some testing by our Vet, it was determined he was in need of a lot more medical attention. He does have bad knees but they were already healing from old injuries and his hips are not so great either. Opossum is currently on a nice cocktail of pain management medicines, glucosamine and is currently going to underwater treadmill ...

Twinkie

Like big mutts? Then look no further! This adorable freckle-faced girl can’t wait to find her own forever home. Twinkie is an approximately 5-year-old Mastiff-Bulldog mix. She has an old knee injury, but that doesn’t slow her down very much. If she wants to go somewhere, you better brace yourself – at well over 100 pounds, Twinkie is quite strong. We require a fenced yard for her and we believe that she would do best without young children. She has done great with all of our female volunteers, but is leery of men - so she will need continued socialization ...

Marley

Marley is a sweet old guy that recently became blind.  We are still researching the cause of his blindness but it appears to be related to his retinas.  He is still adjusting to his new situation and foster home.  He is becoming more comfortable but these type of life changes are very scary.  In the past two months he was in two different shelters and another foster home before coming to Pet Refuge and in his current foster home.  We were asked to take him in as a special request from another shelter where he was not adjusting to his ...

Heidi

This cute little Labrador mix only weighs about 50 pounds and should be almost fully grown at 10 months old. Heidi is a little bundle of energy and enjoys playing fetch (even though she is hilariously clumsy as she is trying to catch her toys). She is an enthusiastic player and, like most teenage pups, she enjoys jumping up on you. Heidi will need some continued training and a fenced-in yard to burn off her puppy energy. Heidi is a great girl and can’t wait to snuggle up with her new family. We have also started introducing Heidi to other ...

Kasey

Well Hello! Thank you for taking a minute to learn about me. My name is Kasey and I'm 5 years old! I love to run in the yard and relax in the sunshine. Squeak toys are my number one leisure activity. Do you like squeak toys? I sure know how to make them sing. I really like playing fetch inside the house where I can jump over obstacles and test my skills. I live in a foster home with young kids and other dogs.  Kids are great, don't get me wrong. But why do they get so loud when I ...

Lyla

Lyla came to us via another shelter who requested our help.  She needed a lot of medical treatment and time to allow her skin to heal.  Her severe skin condition was due to untreated demodex mange with secondary infection.  She required medicated baths about 3 times a week and continues to eat a special food. As you can tell from the pictures, she looks like a different dog these days. After many months of treatment, we started to see a much happier and more playful side come out. Lyla is only 2.5 years old and, true to her breed, she LOVES to ...

Gizmo

Hi, my name is Gizmo, and I am the luckiest dog alive. You may wonder why an elderly dog with scads of health problems who cannot see, hear, or walk very well is lucky. I'll tell you why! Because the volunteers at Pet Refuge chose me. I thought for sure I was the end of my life in a kill shelter. Who would want a dog as sick as I was? It was an effort to even lift my head. I was covered in mats, and those things REALLY hurt!  When I arrived at Pet Refuge, I met the cutest ...

Buggs

Buggs is a darling little boy who always has a smile on his face and is just so happy that he is finally getting the care that he so desperately needed. He was originally found by another shelter with a severe skin infection and a harness that was much too tight. We also discovered that he has some other medical needs that we have started to address. Yet even though Buggs might need some ongoing care, he will more than make up for it with his sweet and sunny disposition. He doesn’t seem to want to share his space with ...

Shiloh

Shiloh is a handsome little Beagle boy with one blue and one brown eye. He is about 5 years old and arrived at Pet Refuge with a painful ear infection. He is feeling a lot better now and is ready to find his very own forever home. Shiloh is in many way your typical Beagle. He likes to follow his nose and will need a secure fence to keep him and his hunting instincts safe. When he is in the mood, he likes to play fetch for a while, but he is generally a medium energy dog. We also recently ...

Jackson

Even though Jackson is technically a senior, he has quite a bit of energy and his favorite pastime is playing fetch. He was adopted as a puppy and returned 11 years later when he didn’t like the child in the home. Yet despite the shock of finding himself in a shelter after so many years, Jackson has adjusted well and loves entertaining our volunteers and getting belly rubs. In his new home, Jackson would prefer to be your one and only as he has not done so well around other dogs and cats. We would love for him to have ...

Chip

My name is Chip. I am 2 years old.  I am a speedy little Chihuahua mix that loves to run in the yard just as fast as I can.  I can be a little shy when I meet you and I don't kiss on the first date.  In fact I am not a big kisser but I do like to sit next to you and enjoy being petted.  Looking for that one special person to share a forever home. (*)(male)(under 15 pounds)   ...

Turkey

Turkey is a big, silly 2-year-old Terrier-Hound mix looking for someone to show him how great life in a forever home can be. He warms up quickly and becomes a wiggly love bug. Turkey loves to explore the world and go on adventures. He'll make a great companion for an active person, but he still needs to work on his doggie manners and would not be a good fit with another dog or a cat. He loves to play fetch and does a great job entertaining himself with toys. If you take him home, he promises to entertain you with his ...

Grammy

Grammy is a 9 1/2-year-old Labrador mix who was returned to Pet Refuge after spending her entire life in the same home. Needless to say, Grammy is confused about this dramatic change in her life, but she is beginning to make new friends with our volunteers. Grammy has a protective nature about her and will need some time to get to know you. She will have to be an only dog in a quiet home without young children. However, if you are willing to give Grammy a chance, she would love to be your one and only. (60 pounds) Read More

Nacho

When you see Nacho hopping through the yard with a twinkle in his eye, you just know that this is a dog with a sense of humor. Nacho is a big 4 year old mutt who still has his puppy moments. Nacho loves to play, jump and will happily put his paws on your shoulders to give you a big, slobbery kiss. Not the best habit for an 80-pound dog, but still endearing when you see Nacho in action. Nacho is a big, high-energy boy who will require a fenced-in-yard. He has also done well around some dogs, but can be ...

Zack

When I came to Pet Refuge I was afraid of everything and everyone.  Someone had not been very nice to me and left me at an area shelter and I was so very scared that I tried to show everyone how tough I was by smiling with my teeth. My foster mom has tried to reassure me that not all people are scary and that it is ok to be nice to them.  I am still not sure so sometimes and I go back to my old ways. I do love to play with my canine buddies and I am ...

Grissom

Grissom is a Treeing Walker Coonhound mix with serious stranger issues. He came to Pet Refuge from a kill shelter so we don't know what his life was like before he came to us. We do know that he takes a really long time before he decides that a stranger is a friend. Right now he lives in a foster home in the country where he can spend his days chasing squirrels and biting trees (yes, he has killed full-sized trees). He has significant allergies and requires special food and medication. We would love to have some help paying for ...

Tessa

On Medical Hold Tessa is a very well-trained 9-year-old mixed breed dog. Her previous owners started taking her to obedience and agility classes when she was still a puppy and as long as you have a treat in your hand, you have Tessa’s full attention. She has good house manners and likes to be told what a good girl she is. Tessa is a laid back dog that likes to hang with her people and go for a nice walk through the neighborhood. However, she is reactive around other dogs and small animals and will need to be an only ...

Lucy

Lucy is a super sweet 9 year old Yellow Labrador mix.  She is a smart, active girl who needs both physical and mental exercise. Lucy is food-motivated and very focused on people. She is eager to learn.  As many smart, people-oriented dogs, Lucy gets anxious when she is bored and left alone. We try to keep her busy with interactive, treat-dispensing toys and puzzle toys. We have also started introducing her to other dogs and while she clearly doesn’t know how to play quite yet, she is very interested in making new friends. (~60 pounds) (*) (female) Lucy has been ...

Zandra

Zandra has been patiently waiting for the perfect home to come along for quite some time!  She is a Terrier mix of about 8 years old.  Zandra wishes her new home to be one that has her as the only canine.  She really enjoys playing fetch with a tennis ball unfortunately; she is limited in doing this due to some knee and hip issues.  Neither of these issues really bother her as she is on daily glucosamine which helps with both.  She goes along with the idea when a few of our volunteers feel she needs to be dressed up in ...

Pooh

Pooh is a 3 year old, Terrier mix who is awaiting just the right person to come in and provide him a special home.  He has a spunky-ness about him that we know someone will just adore.  Little Pooh needs time to get to know you and trust you.  For our cleaning volunteers, many have won him over with patience and lots of praise and of course...treats!  Pooh would do best in a home with teenage or older children and a fenced yard.  He was in a home with other dogs and did ok with some.  He might do best ...

Fenway

Fenway is a sweet 7-year-old Labrador-Chow mix who was recently returned to us when the child in the home proved to be too much for him. Once our vet evaluated Fenway, it became very clear that Fenway suffers from severe hip dysplasia and has been is pain for quite a while. After starting him on pain medication and supplements, we have already seen a dramatic improvement. Fenway enjoys hanging out in the yard with his foster sister and going on slower walks. We would much appreciate some financial assistance with his ongoing medical care ...
