Meet Astro:

Astro is as handsome as he is FUN. He has a beautiful brindle coat and pretty golden brown eyes.

This young boy is about 2.5 yrs old and weighs about 70 lbs. His foster mom thinks he still needs to gain a few more - even though he looks like an athlete!

Astro has good manners, loves people and gets along well with other dogs. He is really strong though and his happy, wagging tail could leave a mark on you!

Playing with balls and butt scratches are his two most favorite things.

He is perfectly potty trained. He's also learned some basic commands. He's treat motivated and has no food aggression.

Astro is all vetted and ready for his forever home!

Meet Baxter:

Meet Baxter, a charming and affectionate 3-year-old Pitbull with a heart as sweet as his nature. This lovable pup is on the lookout for his forever home, where he can share his boundless love and playful spirit.

Baxter's striking appearance is complemented by his endearing personality. With his expressive eyes and irresistible smile, he's sure to capture the hearts of anyone lucky enough to meet him. Despite his breed's misunderstood reputation, Baxter breaks the stereotype with his gentle demeanor and friendly disposition. He does prefer to be the only dog in his new home, since he loves humans and wants all the attention to himself. At just three years old, Baxter is bursting with energy and enthusiasm. He enjoys outdoor adventures at Happy Hound Doggie Daycare where he's currently being fostered! If you're looking for a devoted and loving canine companion, consider giving Baxter the forever home he deserves. This sweet Pitbull is ready to shower you with affection, laughter, and a lifetime of cherished memories. Open your heart and home to Baxter, and you'll discover the true meaning of unconditional love.

Meet Little Miss Lucky:

Meet Lucky! This sweet French Bulldog didn't have the best start in life. When she arrived to us, she was very skinny, malnourished and in rough shape. After some vet visits, TLC and good food, she's gained weight and has built SO much confidence.

This girl is super sweet, but needs an adopter willing to work with her on a few issues. She's great with people and mostly just loves to cuddle on your lap and follow you around, but she can be protective of her person. She is showing signs of resource guarding so that affection is directed only to her, but that can make her snappy towards other dogs who are also seeking attention from the same person. She is also starting to become reactive on leash towards other dogs as well, but does well off leash.

Because of this, we are looking for a home with no other dogs and adopters that are willing to get training and work with her on her issues so that she can live her happiest life. Her family will be the apple of her eye; she a real people lover.

She's eating special food that's been good for her digestive system and she's up to date on everything, spayed, chipped.

Meet Vicky:

Are you looking for a unique and quirky little girl to be part of your family? Then Vicky (or "Victory") might be your kitten!

Sweet little Vicky loves her mealtimes and playtimes! She tends to be slightly independent girl who can keep herself quite occupied at times with her cats toys or looking out the window. During her more snuggly moments, Vicky enjoys coming to lay near or against her person for a good nap. She also sometimes likes to be held for prolonged periods. Vicky sometimes gives kitty kisses by licking your hand or your face.

Vicky really loves a good game of hunting wand toys that she can "catch". She has especially enjoyed wands with feathers on the end and a wand toy with a combo crinkle ball/feather. It's her favorite way to workout! Often after a good session, she then drags her catch to hide if for safe keeping under a bed or a couch, cutely growling to let everyone know it is HER catch and she is not sharing! But when she's ready for you to move the wand again she will let you know by mewing for your attention.

When she gets excited - usually as you bring her a meal! - she likes to squeak and mew.

Vicky is also a "unicorn" kitty in many physical ways. Her orange fur is a color more typically associated with male cats. She also has very unique little paws! She is a polydactyl kitty, meaning she has extra toes to love on her feet. She even has a little extra bone nubbin on the bottom of one back foot. One of her front paw nails is chronically extended as well and does not retract. So good to keep at least this one nail trimmed to avoid it getting snagged on things. She may also have some version of dwarf-ism on her front two legs making them both shorter than normal kitty limbs.

Vicky has slightly wonky gait due to a suspected congenital issue. This manifests itself in two ways. First, when she walks she sometimes will have a little extra rolling sashay motion in her hip area à la Marilyn Monroe. Secondly, when she jumps up or down, it's often not a smooth process and she's prone to struggling a bit to get up or "splatting" on the way down. She also cannot seem to climb very high so tends to prefer the middle level of taller cat trees. Several vets have examined her including a neurologist. This condition is not believed to be progressive and should not degrade over time - what you see currently is what you get. However, the funny gait does limit her ability to jump up and down properly on a consistent basis. For this reason, it would not be safe for Vicky to be allowed outside since she could not always easily jump up and away if needed from danger. Anyone considering adopting her should be committed to please keeping her indoors-only for her safety.
