Snickers

Snickers

Breed: Australian Shepherd/Beagle/Mix
Sex: Female spayed
Estimated birthdate: Oct 2017
Size: M, 32 lbs
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: unknown
Housebroken: new to program
General information: Snickers’ photos don’t do her justice…she has the most gorgeous merle coloring (literally looks like a Snickers and is as sweet as one too!) She’s super friendly, loves to explore all the outdoor scents, and is the perfect size. She came in with her brother from one of our shelter partners in Kentucky but we don’t have any additional background history. She has gone into our canine-inmate program where she will be taught her basic command and continue with lots of socialization. She’s a great little dog…after all, who doesn’t love a Snickers?

Josie

Josie

Breed: Chihuahua mix
Sex: Female spayed
Estimated birthdate: January 2018
Size: Small, 11 lbs
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: yes
General information: Josie will be the best lap companion of all time. She is a “velcro” dog and loves to be with her person. She greets you very enthusiastically, even if you’ve only been gone 5 minutes! She would probably be fine with cats but has not been tested. She currently lives with 2 larger, fairly calm dogs in her foster home and is fine with both. Josie is timid at first and needs some extra time to adjust to new people and places, but once she does, you’re in her circle forever. She is crate trained (she may protest when first going in, but settles down quickly) and will let you know when she needs to go outside. She would do best in a home that isn’t super hectic and with someone that is patient with her sensitive soul. She is a tiny love bug with a giant heart.

Hooper

Hooper

Breed: Mixed
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: January 2017
Size: M/L, 55 lbs
Good with kids: yes
Good with cats: yes
Housebroken: yes
General information: This handsome “tri-pawd” has no idea that he is any different than his 4 legged pals. He’s a happy little chunk of love that adores people, likes other dogs and is in a foster home with 5 cats that he completely ignores. All we know about Hopper’s history is that he was left behind when his family moved and was taken care of by the neighbor. He came into our rescue so that he could find his true forever home. He is genuinely the friendliest boy, loves to be outside to explore all the smells, and most of all loves to give and get affection. He isn’t bothered or slowed down by having 3 legs…he jumps into the car, goes for walks, can do stairs, and enjoys every day. Hopper is an inspiration to everyone he meets and whoever chooses him will have the best companion.

Jack

General information: Jack came to us from a rural Kentucky shelter along with his littermate Chrissy. He is part of our canine-inmate training program where he is learning basic obedience and socialization. He loves all people and is getting used to all the new dog friends he’s meeting. He’s not 100% sure what they’re all about but is figuring it out! He’s happy exploring the outdoors or hanging out with his person. He’s definitely a cutie!

Harley

ADOPT received an update on Harley from her new family! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 🙂

Meeting Harley went so well! Rosie was a little standoffish at the prison with everything else that was going on but we had a feeling once we could get her in her own environment they would do great together, and we were right!! They play SO well together and we think Harley is the perfect fit to our family. Thank you so much for all of your help!

Louie

ADOPT received a three-month adoption update on Louie from his new family! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 🙂

Three-month milestone with wonderful Louie – and he’s blossoming: affectionate, responsive, well-behaved, and most of all —- HAPPY! He’s filling out and starting to mature . . . little big man!

Cona

Cona

Breed: Great Dane/Catahoula Leopard Dog/Mix
Sex: Female spayed
Estimated birthdate: 3/24/2019
Size: XL, approx 85+ full grown
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: with consistency
General information: Cona has the sweetest disposition. She’s very gentle, likes to play but isn’t wild, and is submissive. She likes to be near her person and will lean against you just to be as close as possible. She came in with her littermate, Trudie, and both girls were grossly underweight and had skin infections from flea dermatitis. They are now getting proper nutrition and have been treated for their skin. Our guess is that Cona would be great with kids but children 5+ would be best simply due to her size (we wouldn’t want anyone getting knocked over accidentally!) She has such a kind soul and will be an extremely loyal companion. Because she’s still a puppy, she will need to have ongoing, positive socialization as well as reinforcement of her training. We aren’t sure of her breed mix…some see Irish Wolfhound, some see Great Dane, we see “beautiful.” Whatever her mix is, Cona will be a large dog when she’s done growing so a home with room to play and exercise would be best.
