Meet Larry

Larry is a sweet very timid boy who will hug your neck and loves to be held. He is looking desperately for a human to connect with. We see a very spunky happy guy who loves playing with his his friends in the yard.

This group of puppy mills survivors are all timid around new people. They are however, sweet souls just waiting to exhale in their new save life with humans who love them.
These pups will NOT go home and the next day be calm social dogs that jump into your lap. They will hide and run from their new people until they can learn to trust and understand a routine. They have so much to give but require tremendous patience until they are ready.
They all will do really well having another dog in the house that can mentor them.
They also really love exploring the outdoors and having some freedom to roam so we are requiring at least a small securely fenced in area.

We cannot confirm that dogs who come from the shelter will be house trained.

Most adoptable dogs will need some reintroduction into a home, potty training, basic manners and social skills.

Please be prepared to provide the training and dedication that will be needed.

We do not have any way of knowing if a dog or cat will do well with all children or all other animals.

*** This is why it is important that we introduce everyone in the home to the new pet. Please plan to have the whole family come visit.

*** We also require that any family dogs come into meet your potential adoptee. Please be sure sure your dogs are up to current on vaccines (distemper - parvo and rabies) before bringing them to the shelter.

*** All dogs must be transported home in a travel crate to transport your new pup home safely.

If you are interested in meeting or adopting one of our pets or have questions about the process please see our website at or call the Shelter between 11:00 am and 5:45 pm Tuesday through Saturday. 970 626 2273
