Alfie (formerly Jax)

ADOPT received an update on Harley from her new family! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 🙂 I’ve been meaning to let you all know Jax (now named Alfie) is doing well and we are very happy with him. I’ve attached a few pictures too.

Maximus

Maximus

Breed: Shepherd/Mastiff mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: May 2016
Size: XL, 90 lbs
Good with kids: yes
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: yes
General information: Max loves everyone he meets including kids and other dogs. He is truly a gentle giant. Max is extremely well mannered, knows a few commands and listens well. He walks nicely on a leash and doesn’t pull. Max is housetrained and crate trained and has a gentle mouth when taking treats. Max LOVES to be outdoors…perhaps he spent a lot of time outside in his former life. He will walk as far and as long as you’d like as many times as you want. We would like Max to have a home where he has people to love and love on him (he is a hugger and a snuggler) and also a fenced yard so that he can spend hours in the sun, snow, or whatever his heart desires. He’s a very special boy.

Chewy

Chewy

Breed: Large mixed
Sex: male neutered
Estimated birthdate: July 2018
Size: L, 65
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: yes
Housebroken: yes
General information: Chewy is a big lug of a boy who was scheduled to be euthanized due to overcrowding in a small rural shelter. The staff there just loved him and we couldn’t let it happen…so here he is! Chewy lives in a foster home with 2 female dogs and 3 human children and loves them all. He’s still got a lot of his puppy energy and is clumsy, bouncy and playful (he really really likes toys!) He’s crated during the night with no problems, lets you know when he needs to go outside, and is an affection vacuum. Chewy will thrive in an environment where he is truly part of the family. He’s going to be a committed companion who will love with his whole heart.

Lucy

Lucy

Breed: Shepherd mix
Sex: female spayed
Estimated birthdate: May 2019
Size: L, approx 60 lbs full grown
Good with kids: untested
Good with cats: untested
Housebroken: yes
General information: Lucy could possibly win a trophy for Best Ears Ever. She’s still a puppy and based on her current weight it is estimated that she’ll be about 60+ lbs fully grown. Lucy is wicked smart and learns very quickly. She likes other dogs and opens up once she’s familiar with them. As soon as she understands that they’re friendly then it’s an all out play fest! As part of the canine-inmate program, she will begin learning basic obedience and leash walking. She will do best in a home that will continue positive socialization and including her in daily activities.

Jax

Jax

Breed: Australian Shepherd mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: January 2018
Size: M, 41 lbs
Good with kids: yes
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: yes
General information: Jax is awesome. He’s a striking looking boy with his blue merle coat and long slender face. He’s always in a good mood and happy to greet you. He does well with other dogs but would also be fine as an only pet. He literally has a spring in his step and sometimes bounces like a deer when he runs. Jax is a genuinely happy-go-lucky boy and will be a wonderful companion.

Malcolm

Malcolm

Breed: Mixed; Pointer/Spaniel
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: March 2019
Size: M (estimate 40ish lbs full grown)
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: yes
Housebroken: mostly, doesn’t alert to go out yet
General information: Malcolm is a really sweet boy who needs a little extra patience. He’s afraid of men but is learning that they aren’t so scary. He’s currently being fostered in a home with another dog which seems to help him be more confident. Dogs like Malcolm sometimes get overlooked because they don’t come bouncing up with tails wagging…but he wants to. He’s learning how to play with toys, learning that beds are super comfy, and learning that people can be kind. He loves kids, loves to snuggle, and just needs someone who understands that “perfect” comes in many different forms.

Heath

Heath

Breed: Australian Shepherd/Beagle/Mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: Oct 2017
Size: M, 34 lbs
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: new to program
General information: Heath’s photos don’t show his coloring well…he’s got a really dark merle coat with tan legs and face. Heath came in from one of our partner shelters in Kentucky with his sister. He is slightly more reserved of the two, but he is friendly and loves attention. Heath has gone into our canine-inmate program where he will be exposed to basic obedience commands, leash walking, and continue being socialized. He’s a great size, not too big, not too small, and will make a great companion. Wouldn’t you love to have a Heath in your trick or treat bag?!
