Dogs for Adoption.

Giza is a young male black and white Siberian Husky. He is definitely an absolutely stunner in the looks department but is very much a project dog. Those piercing blue eyes can easily make you fall in love but he does need someone dedicated to showing him a different side of life. Giza was found as a stray and what we know so far is he is fearful of new people but is terrified of men. He needs constant reassurance when they are around. He walks like a dream on leash but is reactive when he sees other dogs so definitely needs some work in that area. He loves to play with the female dogs but was just recently neutered so not a fan of the other males at this time. Giza doesn't like to share his things with the other dogs so living with one might not be the easiest for him. He has met cats and while he wanted to chase them he didn't dare get too close and gave the cranky kitty some space and was easily called off. So he may do fine with a big dog savvy cat. He is not an easy dog and will be a lot of work for some lovely dedicated person but, once Giza loves you he adores you. He is so sweet and quirky and lovable that the pay off will for sure be worth it.

Zeus is a 1 year old male German Shepherd Malanois X. These dogs are not for the laid back individual! Zeus needs a lot of exercise, socializing and training. So far in his first year of life he knows barely anything but he has a nice temperament. He is not for the first time dog owner, requires a fenced yard or acreage. He would do best with another active playful dog to have some fun with. We would like Zeus to go to a home with guardian or working dog experience. For more information please contact the shelter.

Cats for Adoption

Captain is a 7 month old DSH Grey tabby. He is a bit shy to start but super playful and active! He is a lovely young fellow who is good buddies with Duke and they would be happy to find a home together!

Duke is a 1 year old DSH brown tabby male. He is very affection and loves to snuggle. He can be shy to start but once he feels comfortable he loves any form of attention. He would love to find a home with his buddy Captain. Duke does like to get under your feet so can be a bit of a tripping hazard.

Other Animals For Adoption
