8 month old male mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Meet Dudley! Aren't his markings so beautiful? After a hectic past before coming to us from South Carolina, he is looking for a forever home to call his own for good. He is currently doing well in his foster home. He is great in the crate and sleeps through the night. He is quickly picking up on housetraining. He is also getting used to the cats in the home, though he does want to chase a bit. He has a foster dog sister who he likes to play with (little play sessions because they both come on strong). He is a very smart boy who knows sit, lie down and touch... and is ready to learn more! He loves all types of food puzzles too. He is relatively mellow and quiet in the house and likes to lie on the couch next to his foster mom while she works. Dudley does seem to be a bit fearful of new situations and people so we would recommend a home with adults or older teens. With the right intros, he is quick to get comfortable and warms right up. This is a dog who would greatly benefit from positive reinforcement training and, as such, we will sponsor a training package for this great boy. For more information, please email Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
13 year 1 month old female poodle, miniature / mix in foster
Cassie is a friendly senior who is looking for a quiet household to live out her golden years. She is low energy but enjoys getting out and going on several walks a day. According to her foster, she is super inquisitive and loves her food. She is still working on some house training issues, but we're sure with a patient home with someone around frequently she'll get it mastered in no time. Since she enjoys spending her days lounging and napping, we think she would do best in a home with older kids that don't disturb her. To learn more about her, please call the shelter or email email@example.com!
10 year 1 month old male plott hound / mix in foster
Waylon is a sweet old southern boy. He may have some miles under his belt but he's been known to keep up with dogs a third of his age! Age is definitely just a number when it comes to Waylon. He's even been known to croon to Kenny Chesney songs when the mood strikes. He is such a polite boy who would love to accompany you on a hike and then chill out on the sofa! He is crate trained and seems to be fully house trained. He's a big fan of soft toys and likes to cuddle up with them. Waylon would not do well in a home with cats. Come meet this gentleman today!

Bella is a sweet and fun dog. She loves to play with her toys and is very cuddly with people she is comfortable with. She is learning leash manners and has recently discovered a love for the water! She is smart and knows several commands. Bella would do best in a quiet environment with adults or older kids and as the only dog. She is very social but may bark at unfamiliar people and/or dogs and can take time to warm up to some men. Bella is not at the shelter.

11 year 1 month old female mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
***Hope Update*** If you have been visiting our website, you know that Hope has been looking for the right home for a while now. We have a few important updates we'd like to share about this extremely likable senior lady! We've been fortunate that a part-time foster home has stepped up for Hope! Furthermore, with the help of a local trainer/behavior consultant and medication to help alleviate Hope's anxiety, this foster has started Hope on a plan to help her become more comfortable with being on her own. While, there is much work to be done, things are off to a great start! This is wonderful news, as everyone who spends time with Hope agrees that she is a truly fantastic canine companion when she has what she needs for success! We are thrilled to be able to continue this training support to a family that will be able to help Hope continue to make progress. There are a few things that Hope needs to succeed: she needs to be the only animal (although we think she'd give the "thumbs up" to some fish!), she needs an adult household (teens ok) that is able to follow through on a plan that will help alleviate the stress she feels when left alone (which means that she can't be left alone at first, we are unable to predict how quickly or slowly this will go), and she can be a bit excitable on a leash around squirrels, so you need to be able to comfortably handle a 60 lb dog that can pull on occasion (the fosters are also working with her on this). What you will get in return: a loving, chill, loyal companion (it's true, she isn't a "clingy" dog around the house), and the satisfaction of giving a senior dog a second chance in life that was likely dumped. If you're as excited as we are about finding this seriously sweet lady a comfy home to call her own, and you think you might have the right place for her, please email us at email@example.com.

11 month old female mixed breed, medium (up to 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Buffy is a sweet, shy dog who is young and energetic. Her foster mom says "She is the easiest puppy! She likes being pet, but she isn't pushy about it. She hasn't chewed anything that isn't a dog toy. She likes sleeping in her crate at night. She is just learning to chase a ball, and she is so cute when she pounces and tries to catch it. She also gets excited when squirrels and birds come in sight, and she bounces up trying to follow them." Buffy gets along well with other dogs and likes to play. She would do best in a home with adults only and will benefit from training. Since Buffy is so nervous, she is looking for a home with a dog companion to help her feel more comfortable. If you want to learn more about Buffy please email email@example.com.
5 year 3 month old male hound / mix in foster
My name is Cambridge, but my friends call me Blue Ridge. My foster dad says it's because of my spots and my cute hound ears. I like my foster family and my coonhound friend Brenda, but I'd really love a home of my own. I'm always up for walking, running, and swimming. I get along well with other dogs and am happy to say hi to every person and dog that I meet. If you're hitting the road, I'll happily cruise along for hours. I'm a true hound, so I hope you'll find my baying cute! Like most hounds, my nose rules my body. I will run when let off leash, so if you can't catch me you better keep me hooked up. I do enjoy my food and I need some help keeping a healthy weight. Once I get my exercise, I will happily lay next to you on the couch and use you as a pillow. When I adjust my position I groan like an old man (even though I'm not one!) Walks are sooo fun I sometimes break into a trot to check things out, so you might need to remind me to slow down (with a little treat, hint hint) I'd love to have a home with a fenced in yard with some active humans who love adventure just like me! Just no young children for me, I'm looking for a home with adults, and kids 13+. I'm living in a temporary foster home until I find my forever home. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about me!
5 year 4 month old male mixed breed, small (under 24 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Levi came to us from KY, where he had lived with his elderly owner. Unfortunately, his owner passed away so now Levi is looking for a new home. An adventurer at heart, Levi loves to be outside and go for walks. He's very interested in sights, sounds, and smells of the outdoors. That said, he is very low key in the house. His foster mom shared that "Levi is a sweet little companion. He was a bit anxious when he first came here because of the new surroundings. After a few hours he began to relax and make himself at home. He's now totally at home and loves to follow me around the house and when I sit down he sits down too, either at my feet or next to me on the couch. He doesn't need to be crated, though he does like a crate to retreat to for naps sometimes. He'll be a terrific companion for someone with a quiet home and no other pets. He's very easy to care for. He's just looking for someone to love him." Levi is on a medication daily for his heart disease and will likely need regular echocardiograms for the rest of his life. He gets very excited when he sees other animals, so needs to be the only animal in his household without any young kids. To learn more about whether you and this cutie are a good match, please contact us at email@example.com!

Gretta is a super friendly girl who is sure to win your heart! She loves to be by your side, going out for a long walk or chilling out on the couch. She's happiest riding in the car, soaking up the sun in the yard, or finding a cozy spot in the house to hang out. Her foster mom says Gretta has a special way with people.

Gretta is super playful and likes squeaky toys and rope toys. She's a sweet older girl but you'd never know it from all the pep in her step. She has lots of energy!

3 year 4 month old female german shepherd / retriever, labrador in foster
Do you prefer a tight circle of friends to a crowd? So does Kena. Those special people within Kena's circle know her as a fun, playful, affectionate girl. Once you win her heart, she's the sweetest girl. She'll lean into you for a good long pet or put her head on your lap while you're curled up on the couch. She is apprehensive of strangers in the home, so will be happiest in a peaceful home without a lot of visitors. Kena is a delight to be around. She's happy riding in the car, frolicking in the water, playing with soft toys, just hanging out, and is pretty great on a leash. She enjoys playing with other dogs but would probably prefer to be the only dog in the home. She is super smart and incredibly food motivated which makes her a joy to train. She has already mastered many commands. An adult only home would be best for Kena with no other animals in the home. To learn more about whether you and Kena might be a good fit please email firstname.lastname@example.org Check out her video by clicking on the movie camera icon on the top right corner of her picture.
