Honey Bun

Honey Bun

Honey Bun needs a new home! This little chihuahua mix is incredibly sweet and loving; she adores being held and cuddled, and wants to always be at the side of people she knows and trusts. She can be a little distrustful of strangers at first, especially men, but warms up pretty quickly once she realizes you’re not going to hurt her. She is the kind of sweetness that if she is scared of something, will go to the person she trusts and ask to be held and comforted. She is not at all nippy. She was abandoned by her last family, left behind when they moved out, but despite that just wants to love again and be a part of a family again. She would love to be someone’s little cuddle buddy and constant companion.

She gets along great with cats and other dogs. Despite being only 8 pounds, she is not afraid to tell the other dog who’s boss, even if the other dog is 3x her size, and he respects her for it. She has a fairly low-key demeanor; as in, she is not high energy. She is one of those dogs who really enjoys a soft bed and knows the art of chilling, though she does love a good walk when offered.

We estimate Honey Bun to be pretty young, around 2-3 years old. She weighs in at only 8 pounds and likely won’t get any larger.

Honey Bun will be spayed shortly and up to date on her vaccinations as a part of her adoption fee. He has also been dewormed and treated topically with a flea/tick preventative (Advantage.)

If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853 or else stop in and meet him, no appointment necessary, during open hours: M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-Noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, stop in anyway and play with the critters; they enjoy the socializing and exercise!

Bruce

Bruce

Bruce needs a home! This fellow is a very happy, wiggly, energetic doggy who loves to play with people and get all the attention he can! As he was an unclaimed stray, we don’t know his history, but it seems that someone did some training with him at some point. Despite his energy, he is pretty controlled with it, and mostly doesn’t jump on people. He is very outgoing and friendly to everyone he meets. He is very athletic, so is going to need a home that will give him lots of exercise. He has a cleverness and eagerness to him, and seems like he would learn pretty quickly.

Bruce weighs in at 70 lbs.

Bruce will be neutered shortly and up to date on his vaccinations as a part of his adoption fee. He has also been dewormed and treated topically with a flea/tick preventative (Advantage.)

Marshall

Marshall

Marshall is a happy and wiggly white boxer with loads of exuberant energy. If you know the boxer breed, you understand what I mean. 🙂 He grew up with young children and is very good with them. He is also fully house trained and has been a well taken care of house pet. The only reason he is here is that he was too much puppy energy for an already busy household, and needed a home that can meet his high needs for play and exercise. Despite his energy, he is pretty controlled and well behaved. He doesn’t jump on people, and walks pretty decently on a leash. He had some good manners trained into him, as well as some basic obedience. He gives up toys easily and is not at all food aggressive. He used to live with another small dog, but mostly just ignores other dogs and cats.

Marshall weighs in at 60 lbs.

Marshall will be neutered shortly and up to date on his vaccinations as a part of his adoption fee. He has also been dewormed and treated topically with a flea/tick preventative (Advantage.)

Kodiak and Ghost ***Adopted!*** Kodiak

****************************************************************************

***Ghost is still looking for a home!***

Ghost at 7 weeks old, taken Feb. 28, 2019.

Kodiak has been adopted!

***Adopted!*** Kodiak

****************************************************************************

Kodiak and Ghost are male littermates. Their mother was a German Shepherd, and the father is unknown. They both have double dewclaws on their hind feet, which suggest the father may have been a guardian type dog such as a Great Pyrenees. They look like they will be large dogs when all grown up.

They were sadly separated from their mother at only four weeks old, and have been receiving the specialized care and attention that such young pups need at that age. They will not be released to new homes until they are 8 weeks old, though interested adopters are welcome to submit applications and visit them before then.

Born January 9, 2019. Ready to go when at least 8 weeks old, on March 6, 2019. ***Update: We have decided to hold them for at least another week.***

Kodiak and Ghost are up to date on their dewormings, including preventatives for intestinal parasites, coccidia, and giardia. They have also been treated topically with a flea/heart worm preventative (Revolution), and have received age appropriate vaccinations. When they are old enough, their neuter is also included in the adoption fee. The adopter will need to bring them to the vet we partner with for their neuter at that time.

If you are interested in adopting, feel free to stop in and visit them during open hours (M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-Noon), no appointment necessary. You may also call the shelter at 507-644-3853 for more information or adoption status.
