Featured Dog: Archie- GBNF

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- ADOPTED!

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 – ADOPTED!

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.

Featured Dog: Giles

Giles1Giles is a sweet, gentle fella who stole my heart. He’s a Shepherd mix who is around 4 years old. He’s pretty mellow but he likes to have fun too. He has a puppy twinkle in his eye and he wags with his whole body.

GilesOld soul.

IMG_8745That ear is always up and out. Always.

IMG_8758 He is a gentle, people-loving dog. His weekend foster said he does well with other dogs but he could just as well be an only dog. He would like that just fine.

IMG_8762He would just be grateful for a little love. Easy pup.

Giles CollageHobbies include: working on his pb kong, sunning on the deck, cuddling, long walks, and watching football.

Update: 5/6/2016
Shelter volunteers report that Giles is excellent at leash walking, enjoys chasing toys in the pen, sits beautifully and enjoys attention. But we already knew this stuff. 🙂

If you are interested in Giles, please come visit him in Kennel 48.
