Abbie is a 3 year old black spayed female. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative. Abbie is good with other dogs, weighs 89lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up. Abbie is a country girl and would prefer not to live in a city or apartment.
Update from Abbie's foster family - 4/13/2014
Abbie is such a good girl and such a little love. It doesn't seem like she has been allowed on furniture before, so when her foster mom tries to get her to cuddle, she sits half on and half off. She loves getting loved on though by her foster mom and her foster fur brothers. She seems to be house trained, and is just a sweet, friendly little girl. She likes running after tennis balls, but isn't super quick about getting them. She is fairly low-key but definitely has some spunk when she runs.
Abbie is a very friendly girl and likes nothing more than to rest her head in your lap. She has good manners and likes to retrieve but would rather just spend time with people. She knows some basic commands such as sit, come and down. She would benefit from some formal training and walks well with an Easy Walk. Abbie is going to make a wonderful companion!
Ash is a 1 year old black neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs, weighs 40 lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up.
Ash is a cute little guy who is ready to rock and roll! He loves people and other dogs. He has lots of silly happy energy as most lab pups do and he always wants to play. He is good in the car, OK on leash but could use some more experience with it. We shouldn't forget to mention that he is super kissy and fun too.
Barley is a 6 year old yellow male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. he is good with other dogs and needs to go to a home without a cat. He is approved for kids aged 2 and up and weighs 71 lbs. He know a number of commands including sit, down, heel, stay and come. He loves to swim and is on a grain free diet for allergies. He loves to retrieve tennis balls. Barley needs a lot of exercise.
Update from Barley's foster family 4/1/2014
What a wonderful dog Barley is! He doesn't need to be crated anymore, not that he minded it when he was, and he's perfect left alone during the work day. He has excellent inside behavior--no counter surfing, very limited barking, no begging for food, very calm, and only chews what he's supposed to. He knows sit, stay, come, and leave it, and loves being told "Good Boy Barley!" He doesn't usually go on the furniture unless invited. He'll also be very nice to you if he knows a brushing is in order. Outside, Barley loves to play ball but is not obsessed with it. He enjoys laying on the back deck to enjoy the sunshine and loves to go for long walks. While he loves being outside, he is not a high energy dog--he just likes to hang out and enjoy nice weather.
Barley is Mr. Social! He loves meeting people, particularly the little kids in his house who’ll give him some tasty treats! He loves to get baths, and hops right in and sits in the tub till you tell him to get out. He even likes to go hang out in the tub when no one is looking!
Barley is such a wonderful dog. All Barley wants in life is a family to snuggle with on the couch--he puts his head on the edge and just waits for you to ask him to jump up.
Barley is going to make a great addition to someone's family, and his fosters love him. That is Barley in a nutshell. Oh, and don't forget that he's approved for younger children. He is a GEM!!

Bear is a 6 year old yellow neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. Bear is good with other dogs, weighs 72lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up.
Bear is a very sweet boy. He knows basic commands, doesn't pull on lead and seems to have a fairly average energy level. Bear does have hypothyroidism and is on medication to treat it.
Update from Bear's foster family - 4/14/2014
Bear has become buddies with his foster fur brothers, the cat, and all of the human foster family. He is so comfortable now that he sleeps on his own bed right by his foster fur brothers. He also likes to take a snooze in a chair or better yet on the sofa. He is pretty quiet in the house and only barks when his foster fur brothers start barking when a visitor comes. Bear loves eating, especially yak chews, kibble, and wet food (though not all together!). He does a good job of holding himself back to sit and wait until his foster says “okay, good boy” to get his food. He loves to go for long car rides and would love to travel around with his forever family. He likes looking out at all of the sights as he drives by. Bear met some horses and pigs, and they didn’t seem to bother him either. Bear sleeps well at night in his dog bed and waits for his fosters to get up in the morning. He does like to counter surf but is learning his boundaries. He does not pull on the lead that much with an EZ walk harness. He loves Yak Chews more than antlers or nyla bones. He kind of looks like the Bush's Beans dog because his tongue is often out the side of his mouth and then he gets this goofy look as he stares at you with the right side of his mouth slightly raised. He's such a sweet boy who wants to be your forever buddy!

The two for one pair adoption special is back in action! Bonnie and Clyde can be adopted for just one adoption fee, double the love at half the price! Just add their two adoption fees together and divide in half, a savings of over 50% for twice the love!
Update from Bonnie and Clyde's foster family 4/8/2014:
Bonnie and Clyde continue to be an amazing duo! Check out this link for a video of the pair! They have lots and lots of fans, they are hoping that the right one will be their forever family.
Bonnie and Clyde continue to be doing fine with their foster's longer workday. They have free roam of the house and get a mid day visit to do their business outside. They have been perfect guests. They likely are couch potatoes all day with mid day tug of war sessions to pass the time. They are happy dogs who have so much love to give to their new family. They have been using harnesses during their walks and are used to wearing them. Clyde will even put his head in the harness as soon as it gets picked up! They ignore other dogs while walking. They would love a home where they can go for regular walks but won’t bug their new family to go if it is raining, too cold, etc. They have been enjoying the warmer weather and love to sun themselves on the back porch. They also love to sit and look out the front door. Clyde has assumed the role
of neighborhood watch, while Bonnie prefers to people watch. They
especially love when the neighbors deliver treats to them at the front
Bonnie and Clyde respond to commands well and know “sit,” “paw/shake,” “stay” and “wait.” They are so easy to take care of and are such a joy to have around. They were clearly well loved dogs with their last family and will reward their new family with love, companionship and devotion. Bonnie and Clyde also enjoy eating pieces of ice and will happily clean the floor up when the ice maker shoots ice everywhere! Bonnie and Clyde have had a few visitors to the house. Bonnie was very welcoming with butt wiggles and kisses and Clyde's shyness was easily fixed with some treats! Don't let Clyde's initial shyness fool you, he is a lover, snuggler and sweetheart. He has been sleeping with his head on the pillow next to his foster while Bonnie snores away at the bottom of the bed. They are laid back dogs who are happy to hang out on the couch with their family all day long but are up for a walk at a moments notice. They have had several supervised visits with the resident cat. They did well and were respectful of her and couldn't figure out what all the hisses were about. They seemed to care more about her food then her being on the bed.
Watch Buddy Play
Buddy is a 8 year old yellow neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. Buddy is good with other dogs, weighs 80lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up.
Buddy really enjoys getting attention and has such a gorgeous head and big paws to pet. Buddy likes to explore but it needs to be on his time and comfort level. He enjoys a quieter household and would prefer to be with someone who will be patient with him. He enjoys going for car rides and walks. He walks best with and Easy Walk harness. He is house trained and is just a really sweet guy.
Flyer is a 2 year old black neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. Flyer is good with other dogs (no cats), weighs 87lbs. and is approved for children aged 10 and up.
Flyer is a gorgeous,
friendly and very strong guy who is looking to be an active participant in the game of life. He is looking for a family that is active and committed to providing him with lots of stimulation and exercise.
Update from Flyer's foster family - 3/23/2014
Flyer is such a sweet, funny gentleman. He's got bundles of energy to burn, but he settles surprisingly well, especially if there's something tasty to chew on around. He needs an experienced handler or someone who will be firm with him when he feels like doing his own thing (like counter-surfing). Otherwise, he's a total hunk of a guy who just wants some sweet loving. He adores belly rubs and tries to do some lab leaning when his fosters are sitting down, but he stands taller than their laps, so his leans turn into some awkward dance moves of cat-like nuzzling. He's a maniac on a regular leash but walks like a dream as soon as you put him on an Easy Walk harness. It's also quite obvious he's had training in the past, and he knows sit, down, and maybe even roll over. He saw the foster's cats and pretty much ignored them, but they ran away so he hasn't really been cat-tested. Flyer's a pretty cool dude just waiting for his forever home! .

Jabba is a 2 year old chocolate neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. Jabba is good with other dogs, weighs 71 lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up.
Jabba is a very handsome and friendly boy. He loves to play in the snow and enjoys playing with balls and stuffed toys. He is house and crate trained. He has not attended formal training classes but he is a very smart guy and knows the commands: sit, paw, high five, lay down, up and speak (put all four fingers to thumb). He does best with an Easy Walk harness as he tends to pull on the leash when he gets excited. Jabba would love to have a family that will spend time exercising with him.
JJ is an 8 month old male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. JJ is good with other dogs, weighs 63lbs and is approved for children aged 10 and up.
JJ is a typical, energetic puppy who is goofy and sweet. He walks OK on a leash, especially with a martingale collar or EZ walk harness. He will need some basic training as most pups do. He is housebroken but like any typical puppy, he can get into mischief if left unattended. He is not crated trained.

The two for one pair adoption special is back in action! Onyx and Lestat can be adopted for just one adoption fee, double the love at half the price! Just add their two adoption fees together and divide in half, a savings of over 50% for twice the love!
Update from their foster family 4/2/2014
The boys are doing wonderfully! They are eating and playing just like any lab should! They absolutely love chasing balls! They also demand belly rubs, the typical labs! These guys really love each other and are never far from the other, checking out what the other is doing. They are a joy to foster and will make an easy transition into their forever family. They provide lots of love and affection! Onyx and Lestat have had no problem settling into and taking over the house. You would think they have been living here for years. They picked up the routine and make themselves comfy on the couch, chair, dog bed, their foster’s bed... well anywhere. Onyx is a lover of chasing tennis balls. He found the large stash of them in the garage and decided that he needed a few more in the house. So now he has 6 or 7 to chase. These two are truly a bonded pair and when Onyx gets the chance he is always checking out his pal and initiating play. The great thing about these two is that there is very little more work than one and they will keep each other company all day. Lestat and Onyx are a pair of very affectionate guys that love to cuddle. Both of these handsome boys enjoy retrieving, swimming and especially getting affection. They are good with walking on lead and Onyx is used to using a Gentle Leader. Both dogs know basic commands such as sit, stay, leave it, mind it, down, step up and go back. They are house trained and crate trained but no longer need the crate when left out. They are great with other dogs of all sizes, cats and even rabbits! Lestat is a talker, walking around with a lot to say and not shy about speaking up that its time for a belly rub and Onyx is quick to be a lap dog and happy to have a place to rest his head.
Watch More Sally on
Update from Sally's foster family Apr 14, 2014:
Sally enjoys hanging out in the yard, watching and listening to the birds and generally enjoying nature while her foster does her gardening. Sally is hoping for a home with a quiet fenced yard, preferably in the country, where she can play. She is a moderate energy gal, and loves to retrieve (she gets so excited!). She is quiet in the house, loves to ride in cars, and usually comes when called. Her house manners are good, she sleeps quietly in the crate at night but has the run of the house when her fosters are out. Occasionally she likes to "rearrange" some things but she never chews inappropriately. Most of all Sally loves to spend time with her humans and will really thrive in a home with a patient family willing to provide her with love, structure and continued training.
Skipper is a 6 year old chocolate neutered male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. He now weighs a svelte 98lbs. Skipper underwent ACL surgery. He continues to build muscle mass on that leg.
Update from Skippers foster family - 4/8/2014
Skipper loves hanging out with his foster. After some rehab, his gait is much stronger, and he walks using all 4 legs. Skipper loves going for a walk and gets excited when he sees his leash. He is 100% house trained and loves laying on the couch. He has great house manners and will let his foster know that he needs to go out with a quick bark. Skipper found the toy basket the other night and started taking them out, but didn't go crazy with them. He gets along with other dogs in the house but would be happy to soak up the attention by himself too. Skipper is looking for a quieter house with someone that would like to go for walks and give love. He can still be sensitive about his leg, but will fold himself almost in half to get some love.

Sugar is a 3 year old yellow spayed female. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative. She gets along with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. She weighs 79 lbs. Sugar is a wonderful dog. She is active and playful outside, and sweet and cuddly when inside. She likes being around people and is going to be a great addition to someone's family!
Update from Sugar's foster family - 3/23/2014
Sugar is a a delight. She loves her time playing in the backyard or heading out for a walk or a relaxed pace run. She is just as happy inside lying at her foster's feet under the table or sitting in the sun looking out the window. She enjoys her stuffed shark and squeaky ball inside and either a Frisbee or tennis ball outside. She enjoys sleeping with the foster's older children and has gotten used to their schedule. She has great manners but does get very excited when she meets other dogs, so she needs slow and proper introductions. She would be ideal in a family as the only dog, or would do well living with a submissive male. Sugar knows basic commands - sit, down, paw, side, wait, come - but she has trouble remembering them if there is distraction. She is a happy and sweet dog, loved by everyone.
Unix is a 5 year old neutered yellow male. He is up to date on his shots and is heartworm negative. He is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. He weighs 60 lbs.
Update from Unix's foster family - 11/16/2013
Unix is gaining confidence in his foster home! He is starting to go down a flight of stairs with the encouragement of treats on every other stair. It is easy to redirect him when he becomes mouthy by putting one of his toys in his mouth. Unix enjoys going for long walks with his foster family. He walks okay on leash after a few minutes but walks best with an Easy Walk harness. Unix has a heart condition, he needs his exercise to be leash walks only, he's on a low dose of aspirin, and needs to avoid salty snacks. He is a true sweetheart and loves other dogs and LOVES people. He is very playful. He knows sit and shake and seems extremely happy to be here. We do not leave him alone (even with his fur brother and sisters) frequently, but he does well in the crate for short periods and often falls sound asleep.
Unix loves to follow his humans around. He would do well with a family that is frequently home and who does not have to leave him in a crate for long periods of time. He plays so well with other dogs and enjoys kissing them all over, but he doesn't need the company of another dog to make him happy. He loves his food, so it's best to not leave food out on the counters or to feed him close to other dogs. He is very attentive and listens and learns well. He continues to win over hearts and minds with his kisses and love.
