Employee Picks

We work with over a hundred animals every day. We love them all, but there will always be one or two that we each gravitate to. These are the dogs that we feel have the potential to be the best pets and your next best friend.

Danielle’s Pick – Scrabble, 1 year old, Pit mix

“Scrabble is a great young Pit mix. With all the training he has been receiving he now walks on a leash nicely and knows sit, down, paw and catch. We are still working on stay and come. He gets along with some dogs and would do okay with cats.  Scrabble loves to sit in your lap even though he is a big dog. He has a lot of energy and would make a great running partner. Scrabble would do best with older children due to his size.”

Amanda’s Pick – Sloth, 3 years old, Am Staff mix

“Sloth is the sweetest thing and very playful. I would adopt him myself if I could. He’s always excited to see someone and runs to the front of the cage wagging his tail.”

Bonnie’s Pick – Cornelius, 6 years old, Hound mix

“I picked Cornelius the hound mix.  He is an older dog and is a hard adoption because a lot of people prefer younger dogs. But he is really sweet and would be good for someone that does not want a high energy dog.”

Mary’s Pick – Chelsea, 4 years old, St. Bernard

“Chelsea the St. Bernard is sweet out of the cage. She loves to run around and is always happy when she is out. Watching her run and her ears going up and down is just so funny, it makes my day. She knows how to sit on command. She has some issues, but she’s come a long way. Please ask to see her out of the cage.”

Bernie’s Pick – Leila, 3 years old, Terrier mix

“I pick Leila, the Terrier mix. It’s fun to play ball with her and she’s easy to walk on the leash. She has a lot of personality for a little dog.”

Jackie’s Pick – Ivy, 8 years old, Pit mix

“I’m going to go with Ivy.  After all she’s been through she deserves to be spoiled, and she has the best “puppy dog eyes” I’ve ever seen. How could you say no?”

(George, Liz, and Andrea couldn’t pick just one.)

George’s Pick – Tyra, 1 year old, Am Staff mix

“Tyra is a great dog. She’s high energy and friendly. She would make a great pet for someone who wanted a one-dog home.”

George’s Pick – Miller, 7 months old, Brindle Mix –

(Brindle is not a real breed, but whatever he is, he’s adorable.)

“I like Miller a lot. He’s very fun, friendly and young too! He has the energy level of a puppy but the manners of an adult. He should be adopted by now.”

Andrea’s Pick – Mark, 2 years old, Husky mix


DSC_0104 DSC_0117 DSC_0620

“Mark is an extremely energetic boy who would make an excellent agility dog with the correct training. He flies over the jumps effortlessly. Does the A-frame very nicely but sometimes gets ahead of himself and jumps off ¼ of the way down. Mark is good at the weave poles on the leash. He walks fairly well on the leash. While walking if you want to make a left or right turn all you have to say is right or left and he will turn whichever way. As you are walking if you stop and say sit he will sit automatically. I am working on stay with him and he will do it while I have him on a long leash. Mark is really not fond of cats so he needs to go to a home without them. He seems to be okay  with select dogs. He would do best in a home with a nice size yard with at least a six foot fence. Also if you like to jog he would make an excellent jogging buddy. “

Andrea’s Pick – Vegas, 10 months old, Shar Pei mix


DSC_0908DSC_0907 unnamed (1)

“Vegas is an exceptionally good boy. He loves to play with other dogs and isn’t over-bearing. He did very well greeting other dogs and people at the recent dog wash event. He doesn’t seem to mind cats, he shies away from them when they hiss or swat at him. Vegas learns things quickly, like walking on a leash but he will try to test boundaries when he gets the chance to. Once he gets his energy out, he is more then happy to just lay around. Vegas would make an excellent family dog and companion.”

Liz’s Pick – Carmen, 5 years old, Chihuahua mix

“I pick Carmen because she’s such a cool little dog. She’s like a big dog in a small dog’s body. She’s always up for anything and she’s tons of fun. There has to be the perfect home out there somewhere.”

Liz’s Pick – Georgia, 6 years old, Pit mix


DSC_0518 10521865_10201263719354996_1268237084_n  DSC_0223

“I choose Georgia because she’s the happiest dog ever and is guaranteed to put you in a happy mood. She’s so affectionate, easy to handle, and extremely social towards everyone and everything.”

Our staff would also like to remind you that we also adopt out cats and kittens, and even have two rabbits for adoption right now.
