Buster

***Adopted!*** Buster
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.

Buster has been neutered and will come up to date on his vaccines. He has also been dewormed and treated with a topical flea/tick preventative.

If you are interested in adopting, you can stop by and meet the pets here at the shelter any time the shelter is open; M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-noon. No appointment necessary. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, come in anyway and give the critters some love.

***Adopted!*** Snowball

***Adopted!*** Snowball
Snowball. Female, German Shepherd mix, white. 50 lbs. Appx. 1 year old.

Snowball is very sweet and affectionate; she craves attention! She loves to be with people as much as she can. At her former home, she lived with three young children, the youngest being about 3 years old, and got along great with them. She is very low key with other dogs too, even if the other dog gets sassy with her. She was kept as a house dog mostly, and is house trained.

Snow is an active young dog with a high need for exercise. She is also very smart with an active mind, so will need lots of toys and play time to keep her from getting bored and destructive. She would also love to learn new tricks. I believe that it would make her very happy to be able to exercise her mind as well as her body! She picks up on what you want very quickly. She is treat motivated, and tries really hard to figure out what you want for a treat. She would probably do very well at agility.

Snowball was born appx. summer 2018, and is very much in her lanky “teenager” stage.

She weighs in at 50 lbs., and while she may thicken up a little as she matures, is mostly full sized.

We were told by the previous owners that she is a German shepherd mix.

Note: She appears to have a food allergy that causes red skin and ear infections. We currently have her on a grain free diet.

Snowball will be spayed shortly as a part of her adoption fee. She has also been updated on her vaccinations, dewormed, and treated with a topical flea/tick/heartworm/mite preventative (Revolution.)

If you want to meet her, come down to the shelter while we’re open, no appointment necessary, M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-noon. You can also call the shelter at 507-644-3853. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, come on in and give her or any of the other critters some attention!
