Hi, we’re Gaia and Goliath. We’re a boy and girl pair that found our way to the shelter after our owner sadly passed away. We’re both about five years old and are totally bonded. We balance each other out really well with Goliath being the couch potato and Gaia being a little more active. They say things are better in twos and we definitely confirm that!

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!

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 pounds

Kids: Ages 15+
Dogs: Not for me – I want you all to myself!
Cats: No thanks!


My name is Houston. I am young and energetic and sometimes a little too enthusiastic. My bundled up energy can get ahead of my brain once in awhile, and in those moments I’m going to count on you to be calm and firm and help me regain my self control. The volunteers believe that what I need most is a lot of exercise and a good routine. If you’ve never had a young energetic pup before, I might not be your guy, but if you have some dog experience and you want someone to run, hike, bike or do other cool active stuff with, sign me up!

Size: 45 lbs.

I’m Wilbur, and I’m the definition of a gentle giant. I’m around 80 pounds with the biggest head you’ve ever seen! Despite my size, I truly believe I am a lap dog. If anyone disagrees, I make sure to prove them wrong. While I am gentle with people, I am very strong, so I need an experienced owner who can get me the exercise I need. Yes, that means kicking me off the couch because all I want to do is snuggle. If you’re up for the task and want the best friend you could ask for, come meet me at the shelter!

Size: 80 lbs.
Energy level: Medium to high
Kids: Older, because I’m so big and strong!
Dogs: Nope, I want you all to myself!
Cats: No thanks


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 to meet me!

Size: 12 lbs.
Energy level: High
Kids: Older & respectful

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 to set up a time to meet me!
