Puppy Friday: Amos

IMG_9190If this puppy looks familiar, it’s because it’s Andrea’s littermate, Amos. He’s a little bigger and braver than his sister but he’s still all puppy. He loves to play with toys, notsomuch a tennis ball, and he likes treats. A little too scrambley for lap snuggles, Amos is pretty independent.

IMG_9191Would you just look at that face? He’s a heart stealer, for certain.

IMG_9194The grey mottling on his cheeks and in his patches is very unusual.  Just one more reason why he is special.

IMG_9199You know I’m going to say he’ll blossom with positive training. It’s important for puppies to get a good foundation to set them up for success.

IMG_9205Amos is very attentive and responds well to happy voices. He’ll be at the top of his class, for sure.

If you are interested in Amos, please come visit him in Kennel 34.

Featured Dog: Randolph

IMG_9063Randolph is a sweet, curious pup of about 6-months. He’s trying to figure out my camera (so am I!) but he’s not afraid!

IMG_9064He’s learning that good things come to dogs who sit nicely and wait and he’s building confidence every day. Like all of the puppies at the APS, he will benefit greatly from some reward-based training. He’s easy to keep engaged and enjoys treats so it should be so much fun to teach him everything he needs to be a HUGE SUCCESS.

IMG_9046He loves people and enjoys attention from his friends at the shelter. He has a lot!
Such a sweet mug.

RandophAnd such a happy fella. All he wants to do is play, play, play. What a joy to watch!

 

If you are interested in Randolph, please come visit him in Kennel 10.

Puppy Friday: Andrea


This sweet little one is Andrea. She came to the shelter as a wee tiny pup with her brother, Amos. They are getting so big and they are ready to see the world outside of the shelter!


Her little gray patches are beautiful.


She is a little cautious of new things and needs someone to show her the ropes.

IMG_9173Andrea is incredibly snuggly. She loved to just hang out in my lap getting tummy rubs.


But she loves to play too. Sometimes she gets the zoomies.


Andrea is very attentive and loves treats so I’m sure she would be a puppy class superstar!


And don’t you just love the way she wears her ears?


Just as cute from the other side.

If you are interested in Andrea, please come visit her in Kennel 16.

Featured Dog: Archie

IMG_9016Archie is gaining weight and feeling better and he is ready to go his forever home.

IMG_9030He’s also learning lots of new things abut himself.

IMG_9032He has learned that he loves to play ball. Well, he especially loves to carry it around but I believe he could be a retriever, with a little practice.

IMG_9033Archie is about 4 years old. He has a really nice outlook on life in spite of his rough start. He will blossom in a home that will help him to continue building his confidence through positive training.

ArchieOh, and he’ll need lots of toys.

 

If you are interested in Archie, please come visit him in Kennel 17.

Featured Dog: Brandy

Brandy2Can you believe Brandy’s sad face? This 4 year old Boxer/Pit Bull mix came to us malnourished and with raging ear infections. She was a site.

Brandy3Thanks to the great care she’s received at the APS, she’s doing great and ready to go home.
She’s a low-key gal right now- not much for chase or fetch. She will certainly perk up once she feels secure in her new home.  She’s learning to walk nicely on a leash and I bet she would enjoy lots of long walks with her person.

BrandyCollageShe is a champion snuggler- truly one of the best. Ear and neck scratches are her most favorite and she grunts with joy when she gets them. Visit her to see for yourself.

If you are interested in Brandy, please come visit her in Kennel 7.

Featured Dog: Della – ADOPTED!

DellaSweet, gentle Della is a lab mix of about 2 years old. She is a fantastic dog. Sure, I say that about most every dog. But I really mean it this time. Della is a real gem.

Della CollageClearly, she was born to do agility. She loves the jumps!

Della4She loves food treats and takes them so gently. She has nice manners already. And she was eager to show Eileen everything she knows. Training this girl will be so fun.

Della2She already enjoys the finer things in life and would never turn down a tummy rub.

Della1And modest. Della is not one to brag but I’ll tell you another thing. She is one of our play group dogs and would do well with a companion. But, you know, she would also like all the attention.

If you are interested in Della, please come meet her in person. She’s such a love.

Featured Dog: Shane

IMG_8819This American Bulldog mix is Shane. He’s around 2 years old. He’s a calm adult dog who loves attention. Pet him, scratch him, rub his tummy, whatever. Just as long as you are touching him.

ShaneHe picked up manners quickly and will be a great addition to your home. He enjoys the company of other dogs but could be a single dog too. As long as you promise him tummy rubs.

IMG_8822My poor camera shy buddy. Pictures just do not do Shane justice so you will need to come on down and meet him in person. He’s in Kennel 41.
