Brutus

Brutus. Male, brindle mastiff mix. 83 lbs. Born appx. 2017.

Brutus is a very sweet and laid back dog. He is large and a little clumsy, though. He was originally found as a stray in a bit of a state of neglect, but will fix up nicely with some proper food and care.

Brutus

I can’t say enough nice about this dog! He gets along great with children, and with everyone he’s met so far. He is easygoing with new dogs and cats. He likes everyone.

Brutus

He appears to have a bit of a food allergy. His skin is flaky and his fur thinned, which will likely fix within a few weeks to months on good food. I’d recommend a no soy/wheat/corn diet, or grain free. (He is on a lamb and oatmeal food at the shelter.)

Brutus

He is 83 lbs., though needs to put some weight on.

He appears to be a mastiff cross.

He is about 2 years old.

He will be neutered as a part of his adoption fee, and will be up to date on his shots. He has also been treated with a topical flea/mite/heartworm preventative, and wormed.

If you are interested in adopting, stop by the shelter, no appointment necessary, and meet the critters looking for homes. We are open M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-noon. The shelter can also be reached at 507-644-3853. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, you are welcome to stop on by and give some attention to the critters anyway.

Violet

Violet

Violet is a sweet pampered house pet who is looking for a new family to spoil her. She is low key and mellow, and prefers to lounge around the house all day. However, she will play with toys when the mood possesses her.

Violet

Violet prefers a quieter household. Respectful older children are fine, but rambunctious younger children stress her out.

She is fine with other cats, though like most cats, needs time to adjust to new feline residents. She lived with a puppy for two years, and tolerated him. She preferred to not interact with him, but didn’t seem to worried about him either.

Violet is spayed and up to date on her shots. Her previous owner also had her front declawed. She has tested negative for feline leukemia, been wormed, and treated with a topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution.)

If you are interested in adopting Violet, come meet her at the shelter anytime it’s open, no appointment necessary: M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, you are welcome to visit the animals anyone. They love the attention!

16 lbs, though should be closer to 10 lbs. (He needs to lose weight. 🙂 )

Spencer is a sweet and tolerant little guy who is used to being a bit spoiled.

Spencer

He has been around kids as young as three and was very good with them. He used to live with another dog and was fine with that dog, though he can be a little territorial with new dogs and may try to mark his territory. He is friendly with cats, though will tell a cat off who tried to play too hard. He doesn’t bite or anything, just grumps at the cat.

Spencer’s cute little spots.

Spencer was once the pampered house pet of an older lady, who unfortunately had to move into a place that only allowed one dog. So now Spencer needs a new family to spoil him.

Spencer, full of smiles.

Spencer

Buster. Male/neutered, yellow Labrador retriever/ blue healer mix. Born Jan. 1, 2019. (About 8 months old.) 83 lbs. and still growing. Will likely top out at over 100 lbs. full sized.

Buster is a fun and energetic puppy who is 83 lbs at only 8 months old and still growing. He is going to be huge! His former family describes him as friendly with everyone and very social. He was just a bit too much size and energy for them! He needs a home that can train him and give all sorts of play and exercise.

Buster

He is playful with other dogs, and mostly just ignores cats. He is not afraid of strangers; he greets them with a tail wag and a bark. He loves car rides, playing with toys, and playing fetch. He loves getting his fur brushed.

Buster

Buster has shown some resource possessiveness, but more in a puppy-play type of fashion. Still, he could do to learn to ask for his food instead of just taking it. (A good skill for all dogs!)

Buster

He is very energetic and strong, and does pull on the leash. He needs some leash training.

Buster

He is very good at staying on his property, even off leash, and has never wandered off.

Buster is housetrained and has been kept as a house pet. We were told he is afraid of loud noises like the vacuum cleaner.
