6 month old. Neutered Male. Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix.
I’m a young, active fella who loves to run and play. I enjoy being with people and getting petted and lots of attention. I’m a wiggly boy who has a lot of energy. Since I’m still a puppy I’m not housetrained yet so my new family will need to work with me on that. I don’t know any tricks yet like Sit or Down but I’d sure like to learn some if you’d like to teach me. I look forward to meeting you.
1.5 year old. Neutered Male. Pit Bull.
I’m a friendly, happy-go-lucky fella who loves to wag his tail and hang out with people. I really love to play with my toys so I hope my new family will stock up on toys for me to play with. I’m a strong dog and I need some work on leash manners so an experienced dog owner might be good for me. I know how to Sit. I love to play fetch and I’ll need lots of exercise so I hope my new family is active and fun and wants to take me with them.

I’ll bet you can pick me out right away when you see me here at the shelter. I am one of a kind. I have lovely fur, and boy, am I proud of it. I will need to keep my coat nice which will require some attention, but boy do I love attention.I am quite friendly and I really like other cats. If you have a home with a friend for me, you can just add me right in. If not, I'd be happy to have you all to myself.

How does a neat guy like me find himself without a home at this stage of the game? I was a stray and thank goodness for the shelter taking such good care of me. I couldn't be more grateful. I may be an older fellow but I’m very young at heart and I don't miss a thing. I have a lot of love to give and I would love to give it all to you.
