Goldie is a 2-year-old spayed female Golden Retriever mix. She is of medium build and has a beautiful golden and caramel-colored coat. Goldie came into the shelter as a stray and no one has come to claim her. She is a quiet, well-behaved dog who doesn't bark much at all. Goldie walks very gently on a leash and loves to go for walks. She is quite shy and somewhat scared of the shelter environment. Please come and meet Goldie; she will melt your heart when she looks up at you with her big brown eyes.
Take your pick of the litter from 14-week-old male Catahoula hound mix puppies in need of a home. The Catahoula is an exceptionally intelligent breed and can be quite loyal to both home and family. They are also very energetic and need lots of exercise, training and attention. Please come by the shelter and meet these adorable pups, who will be on their best behavior.
Joe is a good-looking 4-month-old brindle-colored neutered male. Like most youngsters, he loves to run and play. He has a great time with the other puppies and some of the older dogs when volunteers take him to the exercise yard. He is learning good manners around other dogs and humans, so it's important that his new family keep him socialized. Joe will make a great companion for anyone who appreciates a good canine buddy.
Sargent is a handsome 3-year-old neutered red and white pit bull terrier mix. Sargent was brought into the shelter as a stray and no one came to claim him. He is a very high-energy guy who loves to play and run. He would love to be a lap dog if you would let him. His new owner will need to work at keeping him socialized, and burning off his energy with plenty of exercise. Because of his high energy and strength, Sargent would benefit from some basic obedience classes. Please come and meet Sargent; he is looking forward to a wonderful new life.

Please come to the shelter and meet him. He is a beautiful guy right down to his short-docked tail.
