Brief Bio: Meet Whipple! Whipple is a very special boy who has a gorgeous sable coat that sheds minimally and will probably weigh around 20lbs full-grown. Whipple was rescued him after he was found living in the bushes near the railroad tracks for over 6 weeks! Whipple was infested with fleas, underweight, and petrified of people, but is now healthy & looking for his forever home. Whipple is fantastic with dogs/cats, and working on his crate-training and house-training skills. He is curious, extremely clever, and learns things very quickly. However, perhaps due to his rough past, Whipple is very skittish around people and anxious in new surroundings. With time and reassurance though, he will eventually warm up to you for love & pets.

Due to his timid nature, he would probably do best in a quiet household with another well-socialized dog, with no small children. He is, however, young and active, so his adopter must be willing to take him out on daily outings. He is an EXCELLENT running partner, and currently goes on long bicycle runs with his foster parents. This scruffy boy is looking for someone special to spend the rest of his life with – someone who has the time and patience to continue training and socializing him, someone who is able to take him on lots of new adventures, someone who is able to show him that the world is not a scary place. Whipple will be up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered prior to adoption. He is not the dog for everyone, but we know that his perfect home is out there.

Brief Bio: Meet Scooby! Scooby was surrendered to the shelter by his owner who had to work abroad. Before his time in the shelter was up, a family picked him, signed the adoption paper and took him home only to return him to the shelter a few days later saying they had mistaken Scooby for their missing dog so decided they didn’t want him. Poor Scooby once again sat on death row in his dark cage looking so sad from the repeated abandonment. The shelter volunteers’ hearts sank for this gentle Golden, thankfully Scooby was pull from the shelter in the nick of time and is now in foster care getting lots of love.

Scooby has a great disposition, so gentle and well behaved. He loves people, always patient and friendly with children. He is great with all dogs and cats, housebroken and he knows basic commands. Scooby has a unique heart- shaped birthmark on his tongue which is like his personality – so loving and affectionate. Scooby loves belly rubs and will love nothing more then to have a family to call his own. We are looking for a home that will give this beautiful boy all the love and attention he deserves! Scooby is patiently waiting!
