ADOPT A SENIOR - Peanut

ADOPT A SENIOR - Peanut
The world is a bit insane, when a dog with this kind of beauty, sweetness and heart remains unadopted! Peanut is AWESOME -- muscularly built, friendly with people, gorgeous and loving. She weighs about 65 lbs and loves romping and cuddling. Peanut needs activity on leash and a secure yard. In the past, she has been known to escape her yard a time or two to go exploring. That was a long time ago, so who knows now, but she has not made such attempts to leave her yard while living at the shelter where she currently resides. She does fine with dogs during casual encounters, but will not share a home with them, so she needs to be a solo pet. She is about 9 years old, with too much of that time being without the companion she wants and deserves. Peanut would probably do well with older kids (Because of her energy level and size, she's likely not a good match for young children). Come check out this amazing dog and you'll find this description to be true -- SHE'S ALL THAT!

Adopt a senior - Swayze

Adopt a senior - Swayze
Swayze has a "complex personality" -- He gets very attached to "his" people, LOVES playing with kids and is fun to watch as he entertains himself with his jolly ball and tries to get the attention of visitors with his squeaky toys. He's also good with other dogs. Meanwhile, when bonded with core people, he can become protective of his family and their space and can act suspicious and guarded where strangers are concerned. He would only be a candidate for adoption to the right person: someone who is very dog-savvy and would offer consistent and appropriate training and guidance around Swayze's guarding behaviors.  The ideal setting would be a low-bustle, predictable living situation, with few comings and goings of non-core people.  Swayze is around 8 years old. UPDATE: Swayze was recently diagnosed with Pemphigus Erythematosus.

ADOPT A SENIOR - Indy

ADOPT A SENIOR - Indy
Indy is an attractive Shepherd/ Border Collie mix. He is approx. 10 yrs old and around 55 lbs. He is the brother to Coby. Indy loves to play with other dogs, but seems to prefer the lady-dogs. He is shy and skittish and will need a home with consistency, love and plenty of one-on-one handling. Placed with a person who has dog-savvy, he will do well. He has been fostered and thrives in a home environment. Schedule to visit him and bring your dog for him to meet!

Wolfie

Wolfie
Wolfie was born at Annie's Orphans, to a pregnant mother who was accepted from an out-of-state shelter prior to being euthanized. He was adopted out as a baby along with his sister Bailey. He is 6 years old and was returned within the first year of his life for joint (with his sister) aggression toward another household pet. Additionally, Wolfie develops a strong bond with a person and has shown protective/guarding behaviors when other people approach the primary individual. Adoption is a possibility to only the right individual who has knowledge of the breed and of handling challenging behaviors in dogs.  The necessary living arrangement would include a quiet setting with a solo person.

Clancy

Clancy
Clancy has returned to our shelter: He was adopted out as a puppy and -- now, three years later -- was returned due to injuring a small dog living nearby. Clancy is believed to be a mix of Shepherd and Carolina Dog, but also looks as if he may have some degree of wolf included in the mix. Due to the reason for his return, there is the question of how he might behave with small dogs, in general; but at our facility, he has seemed receptive. The same receptivity has been true of cats upon initial testing. We will be looking for a home with no small children. Clancy is very friendly and engaging with people and walks great on leash (but is evasive with being leashed-up, a behavioral issue around which he's currently receiving training). He is a beautiful, regal-looking guy of red-sable and white coloration. Clancy is around 5 years old.

Kuni

Kuni
This 5 year old, Rough Collie/Border Collie (OR Australian Shepherd) mix recently lost her home due to circumstances beyond her control. While not trained to leash, she is extremely skilled at "fetch" and other forms of play and is great with small kids -- just, overall, a friendly, active and smart girl. Kuni is looking forward to finding happy placement with an active individual or family.

ADOPT A SENIOR - Hope

ADOPT A SENIOR - Hope
Hope is an owner-surrendered female, 11 years of age. While she came from a home with two other dogs, she probably would prefer being the only dog, ideally in a household setting with a retired individual or couple. She has a history of being fine with cats, having lived with one for years. Hope is very engaging and sweet with people and is anxious to spend the rest of her life with someone really special (would that be you?)!

Adopt A Senior - Sammy

Adopt A Senior - Sammy
Sammy is now 9 years old and is a good, but very shy, one-person dog. She would be excellent for a single-person household. A patient individual with a lot of doggy-know-how would be the ideal match. Sammy needs a secure, fenced yard. She tends to be dominant with other dogs, but can get along with them. Sammy came to our shelter from a rescue in Dulce.

Adopt a Senior - Carmen

Adopt a Senior - Carmen
Carmen has been receiving increased training, and this focus - along with extra exercise and socialization - has helped her with her extreme shyness. She has experience living in a household, and the ideal placement for her will be with a single, quiet individual. She was probably house-trained, but will need a tune-up in that area after placement. She will require lots of patience and love, as well as continued effort toward training and socialization. Carmen is 8 years old.

Andy

Andy
Andy has been receiving special training focus and is demonstrating a lot of growth! He is another of our fabulous Carolina Dog mixes and is sooo cute, with his huge ears and his lighter-colored mask! Andy came to us from an out-of-state shelter via foster-care. He is a bit shy, but definitely becoming more engaging. Andy is around 6 years old, and has had house-training in the past, but will need a refresher-course upon adoption. Contact us about this special boy!
