Dakota

  • Breed(s): Yellow Labrador Retriever
  • Gender: M
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: L
HANDSOME / SWEET BOY: 5 years old / 69 lbs. I'm a big sweet dog that enjoys the company of all the shelter volunteers! There are a few children that come by regularly to visit with me, ages 5 to 8, and I love them too! We roll around together in my extra-large pen and have a good time. I also like to hang out with the office folks and will rest on a bed after I've greeted everyone. I'd love a family that can spend a good bit of time with me and who will enjoy my fun nature. I'm not a dog park kind of dog, but am good with some submissive dogs when properly introduced. I don't care for dominant dogs though and would not do well with kitties, there are some that visit the shelter and it drives me a little bonkers. I enjoy a variety of bones and toys to play with and am just a joy to be around. I also have super potty habits at the shelter. I'm not crazy about my kennel but I do well in a large pen at the Mostly Mutts shelter and it seems that I may not need a kennel in a home. I'm a really sweet boy looking for a wonderful home. Energy level: 5 - 6.

Clay

  • Breed(s): Labrador Retriever, Basset Hound
  • Gender: M
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: M
SWEET LOW KEY GUY: 10 year old / currently 31 lbs. I'm a pretty easy going, low key guy that's friendly with the Mostly Mutts volunteers and glad to be out of animal control. I do however get happy and excited when I see people so I'll bark to get their attention. I'm older too, so you probably won't have to worry about me chewing on things. I'm a bit underweight, so I'm eating extra food at the shelter and I do love to eat! I'm good with some dogs, but not all and a proper introduction is always helpful. When I walk on a leash, I love to have my nose to the ground smelling everything. My potty habits seem very good as I keep my kennel clean and wait at the door to go outside. Sadly, I'm heart worm positive, but I'll be treated for that in a few months and I hope to be with my family before treatment start. Older kids please, as I simply haven't been around kids at the Mostly Mutts shelter. Energy level: 4 - 5.

Teddy

  • Breed(s): Standard Poodle, Schnauzer
  • Gender: M
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: M
FRIENDLY AND EASY GOING: 9 years old / Currently 40 lbs. I need to lose some weight. I'm new to Mostly Mutts and glad to be here, so they will be updating my profile information as they get to know me better. What is known now is that I'm sweet, pretty easy going and ride beautifully in the car. I enjoy the company of the volunteers, but don't seem to be too demanding. I keep my kennel clean and am quiet unless I can see that there is a lot going on that I'm missing out on, then I'll bark a little, but I do settle down. I'm a bit overweight, so I'd love for my family to help me slim down a little. Perhaps we could take short walks together or play. I also seem to be good with other dogs but haven't had a chance to play with them yet. More to come on me soon! Older kids please, as I simply haven't been around kids at the Mostly Mutts shelter. Energy level currently: 4 - 6.

Carmel

  • Breed(s): Chihuahua
  • Gender: F
  • Age: Young
  • Size: S
PLAYFUL & CUDDLY LITTLE GIRL: 1 year old / 7 lbs. I'm Carmel, a little sweetie pie that loves to play and cuddle with my people. I was very afraid at animal control and it took me a day or two to recover from that, but I'm great now and so happy all the time! There are 2 other Chihuahua's in my foster home and we get along and play together very well! There's also a kitty cat and I usually just ignore her or sometimes try to play chase with her. I'm doing pretty well with my potty habits; I'll just need a patient and consistent person to finish teaching me. My foster family leaves a potty pad in my crate for me when they have to leave so I can go when I need to. I shouldn't go into a home with anyone who may be a fall risk, because I haven't yet figured out that I should move when you walk. I'm an adorable and fun little dog. Older children please, as I am very small. Energy level: 4 - 5.

Korie

  • Breed(s): Tabby, Tortoiseshell
  • Gender: F
  • Age: Baby
  • Size: M
"k" THEMED KITTEN: 2 months old / currently very small. My foster mom says that I'm such a little lady and when you pet me I purr gently, but I play like a puppy when I'm playing with toys. I'll take the little stuffed animals into the litter box with me sometimes, I'm so silly. I also love chasing ping pong balls and the little balls with bells in them. I eat dry kitten food and using my litter box wonderfully. I'm a lighter colored tiger striped baby with golden accents. I'm gorgeous and will be snapped up quickly! I'm ready for my very own family and want to live indoors. I've had my initial shots, combo tested negative, and am spayed too. Gentle children please as I'm a baby.

Kooper

  • Breed(s): Tabby, Tortoiseshell
  • Gender: F
  • Age: Baby
  • Size: L
"K" THEMED KITTEN: 2 months old / will likely be a larger kitty once full grown. I'm the only male in my litter of 5. I don't mind because I love my sisters and I'm such a sweetheart. After only one day in my new foster home, I'm using the litter box and eating dry kitten food like a champ. I'm a handsome tiger-striped baby and I purr at the drop of a cat. I may be part Maine Coon too because I'm very large for my age and have hairy ears. I love to wrestle with little kitty toy dollies and chase a ping pong ball around a track. I'm a climber and I'll flip right over to get my belly rubbed. I'm ready for my very own family and want to live indoors. I've had my initial shots, combo tested negative, and am neutered too. Gentle children please as I'm a baby.

My BFF is Kristi if you happen to be looking for two little kitties, we have hours for fun playing together, but we don't have to be adopted together.

JoAnn

  • Breed(s): Shepherd
  • Gender: F
  • Age: Young
  • Size: M
CUDDLY / LOYAL COMPANION: 2 years old / 43 lbs. Why haven't I been adopted yet? I am a sweet, cuddly, loyal dog that is house-trained, quiet when crated, travels well and gets my own toys from a toy box to keep myself entertained. I can be high energy for small bouts and would relish in a nice daily walk but my general energy level is moderate. I love to lie around on soft blankets and watch what is going on in the house. I would be best in a home with children over 10 as I am training to limit using my mouth to play. I have been learning to use my paws instead and am so cute when I tap my foster sister on the head to play with her. I am affectionate but not needy, active but not too high energy, watchful but don't bark incessantly. I seem to be a great balanced dog looking for my perfect human/family. I get along with most dogs but can be food possessive so I should be fed separately. I am an all-around great dog and will make someone a great pet. Energy Level 5 - 7.

Champ

  • Breed(s): Lhasa Apso
  • Gender: M
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: S
A REAL CHAMP: 8 years old / 12 lbs. Boy oh boy has life gotten good for me! I came to Mostly Mutts a matted up mess with a large mass on my neck, a hernia, heart worm positive and my eyes were a bit cloudy too. I can hardly believe that with all of those problems, I was given a 2nd chance! Now, I'm looking good and my hair will grow out nicely, the mass is gone and it wasn't cancer, the hernia was repaired, I'll be treated for the heart worms soon, and I can still see very well! (Ask for more details about all of the above if you think you may have room in your home and heart for me). I'm a gentle little dog that's not a lap type dog but I am a really sweet dog. I love to be close to my people and will follow you around to make sure you're not lonely ? I usually make some noise when you leave, so an apartment wouldn't be best for me. I'm working on my potty habits and have recently been neutered, so my marking is getting better and I don't mind wearing a belly band while I'm learning. I need a stay at home person that will spend lots of time with me to truly be happy. I also enjoy the company of other dogs and cats, but haven't figured out how to play just yet. I'm a follower type dog and playing with a ball is my favorite, it's adorable to watch. I dislike crates very much, but will sleep nicely in a dog bed next to your bed at night or in bed with you if you want. I don't seem to know how to jump up on furniture, so you may like that. I'm good with gentle kids too, but not too young as I haven't learned to take food gently yet. I've been through a lot and can't wait to find my forever family and settle into the good life! Energy level 3 - 5.
