Remember sweet Gertie who was picked up by animal control just a couple days before she had 8 babies? Well here she is! She now is looking for her forever home! She is a very sweet dog, likes kids(at least a 2 year old), but she doesn't like other dogs or cats yet. It could be that she is protecting her babies still or she may just not like them. She is a smaller dog around 20-25 pounds, a sheltie beagle mix, and is around 6 or 7. If she is taken out on a regular schedule she is pretty well house trained. She also tries not to make any messes in her kennel at her foster home. She is still being fostered, but if interested please contact the shelter so her foster mom can bring her to the shelter for you to meet her! She was deserted in the worst possible time of her life, but now she needs a home where she has to worry no more.

Rugrat came in to the shelter with his four siblings at around 2 weeks old. He was the strongest one of the five and the only that survived. His name as a baby was Tosey because he has cute little white toes! Now, he has turned into a playful Rugrat. He loves to play all the time! He is slowly becoming more of a lover, but he is so fun to watch play. He loves climbing up his kitty tower and playing with all of his kitty toys.  He is neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, up to date on all of his shots, and pre-spoiled.  If interested, please contact the shelter so his foster mommy can bring him in to meet you!
