ADOPT A DOG

 

COCO – URGENT FOSTER NEEDED!

Coco came to us after being chained up outside for pretty much her entire life. Her owners left her behind when they moved and it was clear that they only used her to breed puppies. Now she just wants to cuddle with people and be loved. We discovered a tumor on her back end that is essentially inoperable because the surgery is too risky. We’ve chosen to have Coco spend whatever time she has left (at most a year) living in a warm foster home with people who will love her until her last day. She would do best as the only pet and perhaps with dog-experienced kids ages 10+. Please email EASadoptions@gmail.com or stop by the shelter to meet sweet Coco.

SMOKEY

Are you looking for a big, silly, handsome goofball that’ll love you forever? I would love to be that dog for you! I’m three years old and my puppy years (and behaviors) are far behind me. While I can be a little nervous around new people, especially men, I’m easily won over with some food and time. I’m a strong boy that enjoys adventurous exercise, like hikes, and then would enjoy a quiet home to unwind in. I’m eager to learn new tricks and am as smart as they come!

Size: 60 lbs.
Energy level: Moderate
Kids: Ages 15+
Dogs: Not for me – I want you all to myself!
Cats: No thanks!

LOUIE

Are you ready for a good time? I’m Louie, and I cannot wait to find my forever family. I’m only a year old, so I really am just a big, goofy puppy. More than anything, I love to play. Because I’m so young, I do need training, but since I’m so eager to please, I’ll make you proud! If you want a dog that’s up for any adventure, come and meet me!

Size: 50 lbs.
Energy level: High
Kids: Ages 13+
Dogs: Possible with the right fit
Cats: Possible with the right fit

GOLIATH

I’m just a big-headed lap dog looking for someone that will let me crash on their couch for the rest of my life. I love everybody I meet, from adults to children, and I’m well mannered in the house. I’m pretty strong, so I need someone who will be able to walk me, but I settle in nicely on walks as well. I love to hug people and I’ll do just about anything for a treat! I’ve lived with other animals before but I’m a little too nervous at the shelter to show that–that’s not to say that I can’t! If you’re looking for a couch potato, come meet me!

Size: 60 lbs.
Energy level: Medium to low
Kids: Yes!
Dogs: Possible with the right fit
Cats: Possible with the right fit

JOEY

I’m a young and active seven-month-old puppy who just wants to learn! I look to my handler for direction and when I see that you’re happy, it makes me even happier than I already am! I would do best in a house with people who can teach me good manners and have the patience to bear with me in the meantime. Even though I’m currently at the shelter, I make the most of every day and have a happy-go-lucky outlook on life! I love other dogs and every single person I meet, but I may be too much for very young kids.

Size: 45 lbs. and growing
Energy level: High
Kids: Ages 10+
Dogs: Please!
Cats: With the right fit

GAIA

I’m a bit of nervous girl, but all that means is that I sometimes pace in my kennel. I’m so sweet with the volunteers who take me out and want to spend time with me, and I’ll melt into your lap in a matter of minutes. I’m housebroken and pretty quiet, I don’t want to cause a ruckus! I love to go for long walks and while I pull a little at the beginning of a walk, I settle down quickly. All I need is someone willing to take a chance and give me a family to call my own.

Size: 60 lbs.
Energy level: Medium to low
Kids: Yes!
Dogs: Possible with the right fit
Cats: Possible with the right fit

PINKY

I came to the shelter after I was bought off Craigslist by a family that was not ready for me — they almost just left me on the street! I’m about a year old and I love every single person I’ve met. I’m housebroken and pretty quiet, and would love to go through a training class with my new person to learn some better manners. Overall, I’m an easy dog who would love to cuddle with you on the couch after playing some tug-o-war! I haven’t played with dogs yet so the volunteers at the shelter aren’t sure how I’d do, but from my leash manners, they think it’s possible!

Size: 50 lbs.
Energy level: Medium to high
Kids: 10+ (maybe younger if they’ve been around dogs before — I lived with a 3-year-old!)
Dogs: Maybe, with the right fit
Cats: Not yet tested

JACKSON

Hi! My name is Jackson. I am a nervous guy so I need to find a human family with no children who will take time to earn my trust. Once I trust you, I will be the most loyal companion you have ever had. I might be able to live with another calm dog but I’d prefer to be your one and only. Oh — did I mention you have to have a yard? I am the best leash walker ever and I walk by your side with no pulling, but I have never learned to take care of my business while on leash — I only do that when I am able to roam in the yard.

Size: 75 lbs.
Energy level: Low
Kids: No!
Dogs: Probably not
Cats: Not tested

COLIN

The volunteers here at the shelter keep trying to figure out what kind of dog I am, but one thing they all agree on is that I am a handsome guy. I have a lot of energy and am pretty strong, so I’m learning how to walk nicely on a leash but it is a work in process. We’ll get along better if you are not a first-time dog owner and you’ve had some experience with big strong guys like me.

Size: 50 lbs.
Energy level: High
Kids: Older

CHINA — IN FOSTER

My foster mom says I’m a total dream in the house and on our walks. I don’t get into anything that I’m not supposed to and I’m really calm and cuddly. If you’re looking for an easy dog to take home, I’m definitely your gal!

Size: 40 lbs.
Energy level: Medium
Kids: Yes
Dogs: Not yet tested
Cats: Not yet tested

SHORTY — IN FOSTER

I’m a little nervous when I first meet you, but I warm up quickly and I’ll be in your lap in no time. I get along well with other dogs and I’m currently in foster with two! I would do best in a family with no very little kids because I’m a little nervous and don’t like to be pet right off the bat. Don’t let my introduction you fool you, I’m a total cuddlebug that can’t wait to have a new owner who will love and protect me. Is that you?

Size: 10 lbs.
Energy level: Medium
Kids: Older, respectful
Dogs: Possible with the right fit
Cats: Not yet tested

LULU — IN FOSTER

I am a tiny little thing, but I haven’t figured that out yet. I think I’m as big as the other dogs and I won’t hesitate to let everyone know. I am 9 years old but have the energy of a much younger dog. Let’s go on long walks together and then I’ll follow you around wherever you go. I am not exactly a lap dog, but I love being near you! Please email EASadoptions@gmail.com to meet me!

Size: 12 lbs.
Energy level: High
Kids: Older & respectful
Dogs: No
Cats: No

PIPER — IN FOSTER

Hi! My name is Piper, and I love people!

I’m happiest when there is someone on the couch to snuggle. I enjoy slow, leisurely walks outside, because I like to sniff everything. My first humans didn’t understand how to take care of a diabetic dog. I was 8 pounds when they surrendered me, but now I’m a healthy 13 pounds! I need two measured meals a day, on schedule, followed by an insulin shot; my foster parents call this ‘tummy time’. Because of the diabetes, I don’t see very well in low light, so I may bark and growl at you when you enter the room until I smell you; then I know that I love you! I’m a good girl! I’ve been learning to sit and stay at doors until my human says, “all done”. I also know down, here, no, and paw. I used to know dance too, but then I got hurt. I had hip surgery, and the doctors found a fracture in my bone, so they had to shorten my leg. When I run, I gallop on three legs, but it’s important to make me walk slow so that I’ll exercise my healing leg. When I had surgery, the doctors found five lumps in my breasts. They took them out. One was pre-cancerous, but it’s gone. I’ve had a tough time, but I’m a happy pupper and I’m excited to meet my forever humans! I’m in foster right now, so email EASadoptions@gmail.com to set up a time to meet me!
