If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success. -- Henry David Thoreau
This is a dog's motto. I'll give you an example:
Bullet was picked up out on the Reservation, and has been at the Payson Humane Society animal shelter since Feb. 22 of this year. Yet, every single time you approach him, he acts like he's "darn glad to see ya."
You see, Bullet is a special guy. He has a ball and chain. No joke. We've found that if you connect one of those balls that a horse plays with to a lead and attach it to his collar, Bullet stays around. Often there is another k9 member of the PHS family leading him around the play yard.
Bullet can't go home with just anyone. Only someone as unique and free as he is will understand him. At PHS, we believe in Bullet ... and Max and Beauferd Mouse and lots of other beautiful animals.
If you'd like to meet one of the unique animals that live at the shelter, come and see us at 812 S. McLane Road. You will surely meet someone you like. I promise.

Bullet is the cutest 2-year-old neutered male brindle Boxer mix. His face is just adorable from his merry, mischievous brown eyes to his one flopped-over ear.
We named him Bullet because he can really go fast when you turn him loose, but he always comes right back, especially if he gets a treat each time.
He is a good fellow on leash and, until he is older, he will need plenty of exercise through walking and playtime.
Bullet likes to do a little bow as an invitation to play.
He is a most intelligent dog who already knows the command "sit," and if you're willing to work with him, he would love to learn more.
Dawson is a handsome 7-year-old Saint Bernard mix.
He is an owner-donated boy who is looking for a new home.
Dawson likes to sit beside you and put his whole head in your lap. He also likes to sleep in the same room as you, but he is a sound sleeper.
Dawson walks very nicely on a leash, however he does notice when other dogs walk by.
Dawson is more of a lady's dog, and would do well as a one-owner pet.
FRECKLES and COURAGE
Freckles and Courage are 5-year-old neutered male Beagles who are current with their shots.
They have short, brown and white coats. Freckles and his buddy Courage came in together as owner-donated dogs.
They are both wonderful guys who really need to go into a new home. They don't understand why their new home has concrete floors and a whole lot of other dogs who are also looking for homes.
We would very much like to see these two dogs go to the same home, for they have been together since they were small puppies.
Hooch is a great-looking, neutered 11-month-old Shepherd/SharPei mix. His owners donated him to the shelter because they could no longer care for him.
He is good with children and is housebroken.
He has a gentle face with beautiful brown eyes that just long for someone to take him home and keep him forever. He is tan in color and has a short coat that requires little grooming.
Hooch needs a yard with a fence that he can't dig out of, and will require exercise to keep him in top shape.
Hooch would be a great walking or hiking companion.
Please come and meet him, he is really a nice, lovable guy.
Magnum is a 5-year old neutered male hound mix.
His dream of the perfect home would be a ranch where he could roam from sunup to sundown, then lie down at your feet for the night.
He has a wonderful personality and he loves people, but he is independent and likes his freedom. Magnum would not make a good city dog; he needs the wide open spaces.
If you fit Magnum's new family requirements, please come and see him at our shelter.
