Age: 8 months old
Breed(s): Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
Hi! My name is Mason. I'm sweet eight month old boy, full of puppy wiggles and excitement. I am great with people, kids, dogs, and cats. I just want everyone to be my friend so we can play play play. I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats. At just under 65 lbs, I still think I'm a lapdog and will take any opportunity to crawl up and snuggle with you.
Sometimes I just get so excited that I can’t contain myself. My rambunctious style of play can sometimes be overwhelming to smaller or mellower canines but I always mean well. With the help of my foster mom, I am learning to be gentle with my playmates.
Breed(s): Domestic Medium Hair
Hillary is a beautiful, fluffy, medium-haired black lady with the most gorgeous amber colored eyes. After being adopted last fall, Hillary has just returned to Broken Tail - her family really tried but Hillary and the resident cat just never bonded.
Hillary is a very affectionate and energetic little girl! Our volunteers are loving getting hugs from her and having her climb on their laps. She's quite the charmer.
Age: 4 years old
Ares is estimated to be four years old and he weighs 6.4lbs. He's a typical Chi who takes a few minutes to warm up to someone new but then he's your buddy. He's great with other dogs and great in a crate. He's new to the rescue so more info to come as we get to know him. A photo will be coming soon.
Breed(s): Domestic Short Hair
Clause is a sweet young boy that came off the street. He's spent some time in a foster home to help us learn his personality a little better. Here is a quick note from his foster mom:
Clause has turned into a regular lap cat, he will jump up on my lap as soon as I sit down. He loves chasing anything that moves (including the laser light) and will happily chase a toy mouse, a piece of string or his stuffed teddy bear. He still can get somewhat aggressive if he is over stimulated, but even this is getting better. because he still can get a little aggressive, I would recommend that he goes to a home that does not have small children.
Breed(s): Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Silky Terrier Mix
Hi my name is Monty, and I am a lovable energetic one to two year old Yorkie Mix and I weigh about 10 pounds. I am great with kids and very friendly. I love to watch out the window and see people passing by. I am young and I am still learning some important skills with my foster family and I am working on house training and walking on a leash. I am looking for my forever home. If you are looking for a lovable playful small dog, then please consider me.
Breed(s): Staffordshire Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
Abbey is the sweetest dog you will ever meet! She is a low-energy, beautiful mixed breed who longs to be the perfect addition to a loving family. This mellow, 55 pound bundle of warmth is a great bed side companion. One of her favorite activities is lounging on the couch with her family. She will lay down right next to you and stay there for hours. When she cannot snuggle up next to a family member, she happily flops down on the floor or her blanket. Abbey is an obedient and friendly girl who also enjoys a game a fetch, going for walks, and any fun activity in your yard. She just loves to be around people of all ages. Abbey is very calm especially when she gets to know you.
Age: 3 years old
Meet Hershey! Hershey is just the littlest ball of love you have ever met. He is 3 years old and weighs almost 7 lbs. His little legs are too short to jump up on the furniture. This guy is a peanut! He has only been in his foster home for a short time but his tail has not stopped wagging and his kisses are endless. Hershey loves adults, is good with other dogs, and is afraid of cats. He is afraid of children and has responded by nipping at them. He is looking for a home with no children under 12 for Hershey. He is a love bug who will be your best friend! The shelter has told us that he is house trained.
