Good time Charlie

  • Breed(s): Beagle, Bluetick Coonhound
  • Gender: M
  • Age: Young
  • Size: M
SONG THEMED GUY: 2.5 years old / 39 lbs. I'm the darling Beagle/Hound mix that you have been looking for. Whatever family adopts me will enjoy my company and my friendship. I'm a happy dog who needs a happy home. Like all Beagles, I have the howl that comes with us, so an apartment wouldn't likely work for me as well as being out in a yard for an extended length of time, after all we want the neighbors to love me because I am super lovable, but howling's not for everyone. I appear to be an escape artist as I've been found by animal control 3 times. What I really need is a family that understands my breed and will meet my needs because I really am a great dog! I need to lose a few pounds, so exercise is important for me. Since my nose rules, please don't let me off leash as the trail will likely beckon for me. Come and meet me and you'll love my sweet nature. Energy level: 5 - 7.

Belle

  • Breed(s): Basset Hound
  • Gender: F
  • Age: Young
  • Size: M
"LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET" MOM: 2 years old / 40 lbs. I am a beautiful, calm and sweet Basset mix. I've raised my litter of 12 puppies and am ready to find my forever home now. My foster mom says that I'm a fabulous girl that's been great with all people including children that I've met. I would enjoy having another playful dog in my new home if possible. If not, perhaps we could take trips to a dog park. I have good potty and house manners, am happy and oh so sweet. I enjoy short walks but not long ones; after all, I'm still losing my baby weight. Sadly, my former owners didn't keep me on Heart Worm prevention, so I'm HW+, but I'll be treated for that in a few months. I sure would like to be with my family before treatment starts and you will love me as much as I love you. Energy level: 4 - 6.

Eli

  • Breed(s): Chihuahua
  • Gender: M
  • Age: Young
  • Size: S
BIG PERSONALITY / TINY PACKAGE: 3 years old / 7 lbs. I'm the kind of little dog that you can take with you anywhere! I'm super friendly, love new things and haven't met a person I didn't like. One of my favorite games is to climb in your lap and head wrestle with your hands. I like to play with toys too and basically have a sunny personality and a tail that doesn't stop wagging! I get along with other dogs too but haven't met any cats yet. I played with an 8 year old girl at the shelter once that was very gentle with me so I love her too. Even though I'm 3 years old, I tend to play nip a little like a puppy does, so please gently help me learn to play appropriately. I'm a happy guy looking for a happy home! Older gentle children as I'm very small and puppy nip. Energy level: 4 - 6.

J.R.

  • Breed(s): Cocker Spaniel
  • Gender: M
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: M
"DALLAS" THEMED DOG: 7 years old / 34 lbs. I'm a happy-go-lucky guy that's looking forward to having fun with my new family! I love everyone at the shelter, but can't wait to get into a wonderful home and away from the barking. I was terribly matted, so I had to be shaved, but when my hair grows in, I'll be dashing! I had cherry eye that has now been surgically repaired and will need eye drops twice a day for a short period of time. I've played with a few dogs at the shelter and we seem to get along fine, with lots of tail wagging. When it's not too hot outside and I'm healed from my cherry eye surgery, I could be a short distance runner if you like, or we could just take walks together or play together. I keep my kennel clean and seem to have good potty manners. Older children please as I haven't been around young kids yet. Energy level: 5 - 7.

Sue Ellen

  • Breed(s): Spaniel, Shetland Sheepdog Sheltie
  • Gender: F
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: M
"DALLAS" THEMED DOG: 5 years old / 27 lbs. I'm an easy going, love of a dog! Everyone says that I'm super sweet and I like to hear that. I'm quiet, good in my crate and I keep it clean too, so hopefully that will mean I'm house trained. I've met and played with a few dogs at the shelter and we did fine together with lots of tail wagging. I'd like my new family to help me lose a few pounds; maybe we could go walking together or play in the yard. I seem to like kids too. I have the sweetest baby brown eyes that will just melt your heart. It's loud at the shelter and I'm not, so I sure hope to find my home soon. Energy level: 4 - 5.

Bobby

  • Breed(s): Labrador Retriever, Pointer
  • Gender: M
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: L
"DALLAS" THEMED DOG: 6 years old / 60 lbs. I'm a very sweet and soulful dog that will bond deeply with my family. I'm affectionate and enjoy a good ear and chin rub, but am not a real needy type dog. I like hanging out in the Mostly Mutts office with the volunteers but am really looking forward to living in a nice calm home without the busyness that goes on at the shelter. I'm good with other dogs although I don't want to play with them and don't want to live with a high energy, hyper or one that would bark at me. I like the easy, quiet life! I'm very strong but don't jump on people, have had wonderful potty manners at the shelter and am good in my crate although I may not even need one. Sadly, my former owners didn't keep me on Heart Worm prevention, so I'm HW+, but will be treated for that in a few months. I sure would like to be with my family before treatment starts. Older, gentle and quiet type children please. Energy level: 4 - 5.

Brooke

  • Breed(s): Dachshund
  • Gender: F
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: S
A SWEETIE PIE: 4 years old / 14 lbs. I was found at White Water amusement park and taken to a nice vet's office who cared for me while I waited to see if my family would come to find me. No one did, so lucky you, I'm looking for a new family! I have the softest fur and love to be petted, so that's a bonus for both of us. You'll notice that my legs and tail are stained brown; it's likely that I found a comfy place to burrow and sleep while I was lost and that my fur was stained with Ga. clay. It will grow out with a little time and I'll be sparkly white in those areas too. I'm very sweet and love all of the volunteers that play with me and take me for walks. I haven't been around kids at the shelter yet, but it seems like I would be ok with them as long as they are gentle. I'm good in my crate and keep it clean, but while I was at the vets, I showed some fearful aggression towards men only while I was crated. Could be I was just afraid as I haven't done that at the Mostly Mutts shelter. Since I'm new to Mostly Mutts they will have more information about me soon. Energy level: 4 - 6.

Bryce

  • Breed(s): Chihuahua
  • Gender: M
  • Age: Young
  • Size: S
SWEET / PLAYFUL LITTLE GUY: 2 years old / 10 lbs. I was found wondering around White Water and taken to a nice vet's office who cared for me while I waited to see if my family would come to find me. No one did, so lucky you, I'm looking for a new family! I love all of the volunteers that come to walk me and give me attention, and the first thing I did when I got to Mostly Mutts was put my head on one of their shoulders! I seem good with other dogs; I've met several and appear to want to play with them, but haven't had the chance yet as I'm new to Mostly Mutts and they like to take a little time to introduce us. I'm a happy little guy, and I wag my tail a good bit! Since I'm new to Mostly Mutts they will have more information about me soon. Older kids please as I'm small, and simply haven't been around any kids at the shelter yet. Energy level: 4 - 6.

Katy

  • Breed(s): Basset Hound, Labrador Retriever
  • Gender: F
  • Age: Baby
  • Size: M
"LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET" PUPPY: 2 months old / Medium to Large once full grown. I'm a little sweetie pie that is looking for a fun and playful family to grow up with. I'm always eager to play and love toys of all kinds, but my favorite are ones that squeak. There are dogs and cats in my foster home and I love them all. I play with one of the kitties but the other has told me NO, so I'm respectful of her. I'm good in my crate although used to being with one of my siblings and I walk pretty well on a leash in my yard. I'm active, fun, spunky and like to cuddle too. As with all puppies, I have sharp little teeth, so have lots of things for me to chew on and start gently training me not to chew on you or the kids so we'll all be happy! I'll also need lots of love, patience and training in general to grow up and be a great dog that you can be proud of. Energy level: Currently 6 - 8.

Sampson

  • Breed(s): Great Dane
  • Gender: M
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: XL
LOVING AND CALM GIANT: 7 years old / 138 lbs. My owner has become sick and can no longer care for me, so I'm looking for a new family to love that is very familiar with my breed and needs. I'm a giant couch potato that likes to rest my head in your lap and will bump you with my huge snout if you stop petting me for more. I walk well with my harness and have pretty good potty habits, although it's sometimes hard to hold it all night. I've never been crated and don't want to be in my new home and I need a family member that will be able to spend a lot of time at home with me, as I do have separation anxiety when left alone and will bark. I like most dogs and will hang out with them in the home and while were outside for a play. I know "sit" and "easy" for slow down. I'm protective in nature, a little territorial, and will challenge authority especially if they use a mean voice, but some of that may have been because my person was sick. I am very strong and can be a bit stubborn if I don't want to do something so I need a family that knows how to work with me on that. I don't care for a lot of stairs; they are a little difficult for me likely because my legs are so long. Be ready with drool rags, as I come with drool, but I also come with a lot of love. Much older children please as I haven't been around young kids much. Any additional donation would be appreciated. Energy level: 4 - 5.
