Dogs of the Week

Maggie is an 8-year-old beagle/shitzu mix. She is house-trained. She likes to sleep with her blankets and is good with children, people and other dogs. Shelter workers suspect she may have had a litter of pups before being brought in from an owner release.

Festus is a 4-year-old beagle. He is good with people, children and other dogs. Festus showed up as a stray out on State Route 554. Shelter workers think he has great potential for being a rabbit hunting dog as he consistently keeps searching for mysteries as is consistent with his breed.

Sunfire is a one-year-old golden retriever and vizsla mix. She is a high-energy dog and requires a family that would be willing to help her keep up with an active lifestyle. She is good with children, adults and other dogs. Sunfire got her name from witnesses at Love’s Truck Stop, who said they found her as a red Sunfire car threw her from the door as it sped away.

Grandpa is a 15-year-old chihuahua mix. Grandpa’s last owner was recently placed in a nursing home. He would make a good companion for an older and experienced dog handler. He is unsure of children and best suited to a single-dog home.
