 . Lil Bit .  . Lil Bit .  . Lil Bit .
  • Boxer
  • Spayed/Neutered
Tiger-striped Lil Bit loves her toys! She is looking for a family experienced with dogs and kids 16 and older who can teach her how to play appropriately and help her learn the joys of being a great family dog. Lil Bit would love to be your only dog at home. She may have dog friends and playmates that are carefully matched, but dog parks are not recommended for her. If you ask Lil Bit about cats, she'd say they are for chasing! Sign up for one of our Bully Breed classes to teach your new girl how to be a star!Letter from Lil BitDear Future Adopter(s),I lived with my foster family for quite a while and am ready to move on to my forever home. Let me tell you "a little bit" (pardon the pun!) about me. I really like hanging out with my people, sitting beside them on the couch watching TV, getting cuddles and having my tummy rubbed. I must also admit I spend a fair amount of time sleeping. I did get excited, however, when my foster parents got the treat bag ready and put my harness and leash on. I knew it was time for a WALK! I'm told that I am an excellent "loose leash walker." I hardly ever pull and I look back at my person frequently, hoping for a treat! When I pass a person or notice another dog in the distance, I stop and look with my tail wagging, but then continue on with my walk. I know sit and stay very well, and could probably learn some other tricks if someone taught me. I'm not much interested in playing fetch with the ball. As a matter of fact, if you throw it, you will probably have to go pick it up yourself. My favorite nighttime sleeping arrangement is on the bed. After kissing my foster parents goodnight, I would move to the foot of the bed where I slept all through the night. I am house trained and I also come when called. My foster family told me I'm one of the sweetest dogs they have fostered and very easy to manage. I just love to please my people. I can't wait to meet you! With love, Lil Bit Primary Color: Brindle Weight: 57.4 Age: 6yrs 4mths 1wks Animal has been Spayed

  • Chihuahua
  • Spayed/Neutered
Jack and Princess are a delightful duo! These guys just need a little time to settle in together and once they do they love to run, play and be with their people. They will do best in a home with older teens who are respectful of their space and needs. While a little unsure of new dogs at first, they can warm up and make friends with a couple of introductions. They have lived with cats before as well. Princess will prance and Jack will dance his way to your heart. They have lived together most of their lives and we are committed to their staying together in their next forever home. Primary Color: Black Weight: 9.2 Age: 6yrs 7mths 4wks Animal has been Spayed

  • Special Needs
Did you know that some dogs have their very own fan club? Cody does! A volunteer favorite, Cody walks well on a leash in quiet environments and loves regular exercise and training. This big-hearted soulful gentleman is looking for a home where he will be the only pet with a full time human companion experienced with dogs. Children 14 and older that will follow training protocols would be a good fit. A pre-adoption consult with our behavior and training staff can provide you with lots of resources to ensure your future together is a successful one.

 . Cookie .  . Cookie .  . Cookie .
  • Siberian Husky
  • Spayed/Neutered
Lovely Cookie arrived at our shelter in extremely poor health. Our staff have nursed her back to health and everyone has fallen in love with her. She will excel in a home with northern breed experience and kids over 12. Cookie may be able to live with a well matched dog, but would also be quite content to be the only dog. True to her breed, she has shown some smarts in getting out of some yards and doors and will need a secure home and yard. She is quite loving with the people she has bonded with in our shelter and has learned to sit for things she wants. Small pets are not recommended. Cookies adoption fee has been sponsored by a generous donor. Primary Color: Silver Secondary Color: White Weight: 66 Age: 7yrs 2mths 3wks Animal has been Spayed

 . Amber .
 . Amber .
  • Cocker Spaniel
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is Amber and I LOVE balls. I also love people and like sitting in laps, even if I am somewhat big for a lap dog. Other dogs are fun, too, but I like to jump on them so I can only meet tolerant dogs. Your kids should be 12 or older 'cause I am pretty active.

 . Boomer .
  • Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is Boomer and I am a young and playful dog who wants an active family. I like other dogs if they are polite to me and have a similar play style. I just might chase your cat for fun. I have lots of energy and I like to jump up so kids should be at least ten years old. I am a happy boy and love life.

 . Roddy .
 . Roddy .
  • Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Roddy is a sweet and sensitive little Podenco looking for a family with prior dog experience and kids 10 and older (1st time owners possible with a class sign-up). Roddy is very friendly and soft but will need gentle, positive introductions to new people, places and things. He LOVES to play with toys and people and would be a wonderful companion. Roddy can be social with other dogs but will need work on his manners, a careful introduction and well-matched playmates. Because he is so soft and easily overwhelmed,a dog park may not be the best place for him to socialize. Living with a dog-savvy, gentle cat is a possibility. Teach your new buddy all the tricks and skills he'll need to be an outstanding canine citizen and come to one of our training classes together.

 . Pedrito .
 . Pedrito .
  • Border Collie, Spaniel
  • Spayed/Neutered
A soft, sweet, young dog, Pedrito has a gentle demeanor and an inquisitive nature. His handsome and distinctive markings complete the package. He is very interested in human activity and this focus will make him a great student. Still an adolescent, his soft demeanor will respond best to positive reinforcement as he learns his social skills. He would likely be fine with another dog after appropriate introduction and likely fine with cats. Pedrito would do well in a home with a new dog owner and children 6 and older that are committed to his training and the time it takes to work with a young dog daily.

 . Sierra .
 . Sierra .  . Sierra .
  • Beagle, Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
I'm Sierra. I need a family who can gently and slowly show me the world. I can be much braver with another dog friend, but may need you to referee a bit when I get too excited. I get a little worried about people grabbing at me so kids 12 and older would be best as they will respect my space better than a young child would. I'm all sorts of adorable and love to snuggle. Won't you take me home today? Primary Color: Black Secondary Color: White Weight: 47.2 Age: 1yrs 6mths 1wks Animal has been Spayed

 . Astro .
 . Astro .  . Astro .  . Astro .
  • Pug, Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Astro is quite the character. Chasing balls and toys are fun for him but he does not always bring them back, apparently that's your job. He loves little girl dogs but tells the boys to go away. This little clown is the consumate escape artist and is quite clever in his methods. Vigilance is required. Astro settles nicely in your lap and loves a good massage. Once he gets to know you, he is a friend for life. Primary Color: Gold Secondary Color: White Weight: 16.44 Age: 3yrs 1mths 3wks Animal has been Neutered

 . Butterfly .
 . Butterfly .  . Butterfly .  . Butterfly .
  • American Staffordshire Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without dogs
My name is Butterfly and I do like to flit around. I think playing tug is a great game. I also love treats and am eager to learn new things. My adopters should be experienced with dogs and have children at least 12 years old. I'm drawn to other dogs but my approach can be a little off-putting. An easy going friend close to mus size could work with the right introduction. I just can't help it but I will probably chase a cat. I get lonely when left home alone so I hope someone will be there most of the time. I am looking forward to being part of a loving family.

  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Special Needs
Are you looking for a handsome family dog? Zeppelin is ready to light up your life! This sweet gentle boy is looking for a home to help him blossom into a wonderful adult dog. He is curious about the world and eager to learn. Taking a training class with Zeppelin would be a great way to develop your relationship together. Zeppelin will thrive in an experienced home with kids 12 and older. While Zeppelin has had many dog friends outside of his home, he will need to be the only dog in his home. We are seeking a home without cats (inside or outside) for this guy. Zeppelin would benefit from an adopter who is able to help him adjust to being left alone. Talk to our adoptions staff about Zeppelin today! Primary Color: Black Weight: 85.4 Age: 2yrs 9mths 2wks Animal has been Neutered

 . Ken .  . Ken .  . Ken .
  • Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler)
  • Spayed/Neutered
Ken is a special dog looking for special owners. Alone he is shy and a little worried, but with a dog friend he is ready for new things and new experiences. He loves romping with all his dog friends during play groups and will need a buddy in his new home too. He likes to play with toys and will likely be very playful once he is comfortable in his home and he has gained some more confidence. An adult home or home with calm teens would be best. He will do fine with a resident cat in the home too. Primary Color: White Secondary Color: Tri Color Weight: 29.6 Age: 0yrs 8mths 3wks Animal has been Neutered

  • Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Sam is a little dog with a big personality. His confident strut and goofy antics are sure to win you over. He would love to be the center of your world as an only dog, but may be able to share space with a well matched friend too. Sam is still learning to share his things with people, so an adult home is best. Getting into a training class is a great way to harness those smarts and teach him all sorts of tricks to wow your friends with.

 . Maxx .
 . Maxx .  . Maxx .  . Maxx .
  • Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Maxx is a cool dog looking for a family with prior dog experience and kids 10 and older he can settle down with. He would love a predictable routine, soft toys and walks, maybe a human or another well matched dog to play with. Maxx has some learning to do and one of our training classes would be a great tool in forming a bond and teaching him new skills he'll need in his new life. Maxx thinks cats are fun to chase but would probably do well with another dog of similar personality and easy going nature. Come meet this handsome dude today!

 . Marti .
 . Marti .  . Marti .  . Marti .
  • Border Collie
  • Spayed/Neutered
Marti is a lovable and friendly guy. He walks well on leash and is a delight to watch as he gets a case of the puppy zoomies in the yard. Marti's ideal adopters will be experienced and can include kids 12 and older. Marti will need a dog and cat free home to call his own. He is manageable on leash when other dogs are at an appropriate distance but is not comfortable in close proximity. Dog parks and other off leash areas are not recommended. Adoption fee has been sponsored by another adopter. MW 10-15-16 Primary Color: Black Secondary Color: White Weight: 65.4 Age: 8yrs 5mths 1wks Animal has been Neutered

Sponsorships like yours help bring attention to pets at the shelter, which increases the pet's chances of finding a "forever home". While there are no time limits on how long an animal stays at SHS, animals benefit by being placed in a new home as quickly as possible.

Your sponsorship gift helps all the pets who come to SHS by providing food, shelter, spay/neuter surgery and veterinary care services as our adoption fees cover only a fraction of our animal care costs. Click here and let us know which animal you'd like to sponsor.
