American Bulldog & Boxer Mix- Female – 2-3 years old

Housetrained: Yes

Crate Trained: Yes

Gets along with: people in general, we are working on socializing her with other dogs, but because of having to fend for herself on the street it is a very slow process. A single dog home would be recommended at this time.

This was an emotional rescue for us. Poor Gigi was literally minutes away from being euthanized in a high kill shelter due to space constraints. She had such a beautiful boxer face and gentle personality that we just could not let that happen. Working with several volunteers, we were able to get her into rescue with us and she will be well taken care of until she is ready for her forever home.  She is now safe but still needs to be spayed once she is strong enough. We will continue to update you on her progress.
Gigi’s  adoption donation is $400.


English Bulldog- Male – Neutered – 22 months old

Housetrained: Yes

Crate Trained: Yes

Gets along with: people in general, is picky about doggy friends, no cats for this boy

Oh boy, do we have a treat for you! Meet Fyll, he just came into care as his family had no time to exercise and train him, and being almost 70lbs, this boy needs to learn his manners.  He is a loving and affectionate dog, but will need a knowledgeable home that will be consistent with his training, because Fyll knows he is all that and likes to prove it, especially with other dogs!

Fyll’s  adoption donation is $400.

Ziggy -ADOPTED!!

Shi Tzu Mix  – Male – Neutered – Approx. 5 years old

Housetrained: YES once the routine is established

Crate Trained: Yes

Gets along with: Great with kids and dogs, no cats for this boy

Aside from being so bloody adorable, Ziggy also has the best temperament we have ever come across!  He was dumped at the shelter and was in bad shape when we got him. He had a double ear infection that was very severe and his skin was in rough shape.  Now that he is on a better diet and medication, this little trooper is doing amazing! He may have a heart murmur but he has his recheck next week so we will be able to give an update about his overall health then.  He loves to cuddle, is fantastic with other dogs and looks for affection from adults and children alike.  He needs a cat-free home. He is neutered and will be up to date on all vaccines upon adoption.

Ziggy’s  adoption donation is $400.

Molly – ADOPTED!!

Molly / 5-6 years old / Spayed Female / Bernese – Newfoundland Mix

Molly was pulled from a shelter just hours before being euthanized. She came to us with porcupine quills embedded in her cheeks that were abcessing and fur matted to the skin and full of burrs.   She did not let any of that phase her though and is the sweetest dog with the best disposition you could ask for in a companion!  Following her speedy recovery, she has been adopted by a wonderful family and now has a fur brother – Preston – to share her days with.

Charlotte – Adopted!

Chihuahua / 7 years old / Spayed Female

We pulled little Charlotte on her last day at the shelter, her time was up because she was a little older and needed dental work and teeth extractions. This precious little sweetheart deserved her second chance and has found her new life!

Lola (Jersey)

3 month old boxer/hound/terrier mix

Lola (now Jersey) was the first of the “girls” to find her forever home.  She is having a great time with her new family and lives around the corner from her foster family.  A match made in heaven!  This picture is worth a thousand words – LOVE!
