Meet Our Dogs
Breed: Collie Mix
Sex: Male (Neutered)
Vaccinations: Current, special needs
Age: 3 yr
Good in a home with other dogs and calm respectful children.
Austin was only a year old when he was found in the country. He is thought to be semi-feral but he is learning to love his foster.
A farm lady called the local animal control to come get him before he starved to death. She would throw cow parts for him to eat to try to keep him alive. He had to be trapped by animal control because he was so afraid. He is doing well in his foster’s home and loves their other dogs. He needs a home with another dog and a 6ft privacy fence to prevent any chance of escape. Austin will come around but will need a family who is experienced with semi-ferals, patient and will give him the time he needs to figure out that people aren’t so bad. If you are that special family, please consider giving him the loving, permanent home that he deserves.
Breed: American Bulldog
Sex: Male (Neutered)
Age: 4 yr
Good in a home with calm respectful children. Loves to play with other dogs
Even though Odie was abandoned by his previous family, he still loves people. He gets along with other dogs and children. We don’t know about cats. If you want a hiking or camping buddy, Odie is your guy. Playing fetch and tug are also favorite things that he likes. He would love a family who would treat him like a family member. He has a very special talent: his is bilingual- he speaks Spanish. His previous dad spoke Spanish to him. The sister spoke English…. so he is bilingual. He has already had his dental and is ready to start his new life as a family member. Odie needs a fenced yard and we are requiring his adoptive family to enroll him in a class to earn his CGC.

Sex: Male (Neutered)
Age: 8 yr
Special needs: blind
Good in a home with calm respectful children. Gets along with other dogs and cats
Charlie was surrendered to animal control in Sept 2021 because the family was moving and couldn’t care for him any longer. He is blind but gets around very well. Rainbow had him examined by an ophthalmologist who determined that he has retinal degeneration with no known cure. He will be on 1 drop of prednisalone for the rest of his life. Charlie is a sweet lap boy who doesn’t know that he weighs 85 lbs. He loves to walk and is good on a leash. His foster has several cats who don’t bother him at all. Charlie would love a family who would take him for walks and include him on all family outings where dogs are allowed. He would also make a great fireplace dog who snores loudly when he is dreaming of his new home.

Poppy (courtesy post)
Age: 3 yr
Good in a home with calm respectful children. Gets along with other dogs
Poppy is looking for her perfect furever home. She is a 3 year old sweet, fun loving girl looking for an active family with a large fenced-in yard to run zoomies, and chase squirrels in. Between the ears, perfect head tilts, stocky little body, you are guaranteed to fall in love with this sassy ham. Poppy adores playing tug and fetching sticks. She’s very friendly and social, and absolutely loves children of all ages. You want personality? Poppy definitely brings it. She’s a little diva! Her energy level? A little tank demanding you pick up the toy and play tug with her all day – followed by dramatically passing out curled up in her dog bed. She also breaks into the occasional (brief) zoomies, in which any object (humans included) is subject to becoming her launch pad. This chaotic meatball (who appears to be part cow, pig, and pittie) can be a little over the top with her mouthiness and somewhat of a bull in a China shop at times. We believe she would be a good fit with slightly older, dog-savvy children or a family experienced with bully breeds. She takes corrections well, is very smart, and food motivated. Show her a treat and the she will immediately sit. Poppy loves to cuddle up and snooze on the couch with her family after a long, hard day of terrorizing everyone for juuuuust one more game of tug. Could you be her furever family?

Sex: neutered male
Age: 6 yr
Good in a home with calm respectful older children. Gets along with other dogs
Ferb has spent the last 2 years on a screened in porch because the guardian’s husband thought he was a tripping hazard to his wife who had dementia. She died on Sept 8 and the family wanted him out or they were going to take him to the pound. Rainbow took him to give him the life he deserves. At 6 yrs old he is very energetic. He loves playing with balls. Ferb is a typical Feist in that he has a high prey drive and wouldn’t do well with cats. He would do well with older calm children. Ferb would love to go for walks and fetch balls for you all day long. If you are that special family who wants a player, consider making Ferb your family member.
