Introducing Stella, our pocket pittie! She is a beautiful girl with eyes that will surely melt your heart and touch your soul. Stella has a tremendous amount of energy and we feel needs to be the only four legged friend in the household. She tends to play rough at times, and could use some basic training including housebreaking. Stella requires a home with no children and a secure fenced yard. She is also known to give great hugs.

I am a 1 1/2 year old strong, smart, and striking Doberman/ Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. Unfortunately, I am not always aware of my strength, so an experienced owner and continued training will be necessary for me to become the great dog and companion I know I can be. A secure fence is a necessity as well as no small children. More information to follow as Pet Refuge gets to know me better. 75#

I would love to be your co-pilot when you go for a ride. I am full of energy and curiosity, and I love people. I need a home without any other pets, or children. I must have a secure fenced yard and a responsible owner who will spoil and love me for the wonderful dog I truly am. I am not a candidate for dog parks or other activities that involve other animals.  52#

When you hear the name Pugsley, you might think of a cute little pug, but this big, affectionate boy is a mix of  Boxer, Shar Pei, and probably many other breeds. Whatever Pugsley is.... he is full of cuteness.  Pugsley enjoys a nice walk and even though he is a strong boy, he has nice leash manners. Pugsley got a bit spoiled with belly rubs from his volunteer friends while he recovered from toe amputation due to dislocation of  his toe. Now that he has recovered, he enjoys playing outside in the yard with the volunteers. His forever home requires a fenced yard and older children only.  He can be selective about other dogs and is protective of his kennel.

Rosie is my name but you might call me Lucky. I am 4 yrs old and one happy girl. ( see my smile?) Pet Refuge took me in when I needed surgery to remove a bladder stone.  I feel so much better now, and I'm ready for my new home. I do need to be on a special diet to keep me feeling well.  I am a cuddler and love to go for walks. If you have a home with a fence and where I can be the only dog, I'm your girl! (32#)

 If you think you may want to train for a marathon I am the partner for you! We can walk, jog and even take a break to play if you still have energy left. I will need a fenced yard as I feel I need to be the guardian of your castle. At almost 100 pounds, I am more than qualified for the job. Due to my size older children would be the best match for me. The volunteers at the shelter are still getting to know me, as I have not shared all of my many talents but they do feel that I would do best as an only dog.

I am an energetic boxer mix who loves tennis as much as my name sake Billie Jean King! I'm looking for a home where I can chase tennis balls, go for walks and car rides.  My new home will need to have a safe, secure, fenced yard and no younger children.  I will need  time to just settle in and  become your companion. Once I know and love you, I become slightly protective and lots of people coming and going will make me nervous. Plus I will need to be your one and only furry best friend. Adopt me and make my Valentine's Day  wish come true!

They tell me "Lucy, you got some 'splainin' to do!" Now, how could a cute little thing like me end up in a shelter? I am a 5 year old Jack Russell Terrier with a bad knee from an old injury. However, the Doctor says I can get around just fine. I'm looking for a nice home where I can be the only dog, with no children and a fenced yard, My new owner also needs to have experience with my Breed and my high energy level.


Handsome and full of fun! Meet Rocky the one and a half year old lab/boxer mix.

Zeke is a handsome, high energy lab mix that loves to play ball.  He also enjoys walks, but needs some work on his tendency to over react towards passing cars.  
With his smarts and young age, of under a year old, he has the potential to excel at training and is learning some new commands.
His forever home requires a secure fenced yard, older children, and he needs to be the one and only pet in the family.

My friends here at Pet Refuge call me Rae Rae. I'm just a year old lab/terrier mix and working really hard on my housebreaking, leash walking, and crate training skills.  But, it's harder to do at the shelter. Think you can help me out at your house? I'm going to need a quieter  home with a fenced yard. Hopefully someone too, that will play fetch with me, but no young children. (56 pounds)

I am a real peach of a gal at 35#. Got toys?  I love toys, especially stuffed ones that I can carry everywhere I go! I'm a people pleaser so I'll probably be easy to train.  I need someone (with toys, of course) to help me burn up all the energy I have since I'm only 2 yrs old. And I need a fenced yard I'm a bit much for younger kids.  I like some dogs.

Okay, you hound lovers!  Here I am.  And I am a big love too.  Are you looking for a tall, slender, handsome, senior guy?  That's me and I love to give kisses and hugs. I'm good for going for walks, but because I'm a hound I need a fenced yard.  I prefer kids 8 year and older and like other dogs .
