Meet Nate

This young guy is named Nate. He was part of a surrender that included several dogs. He had zero socialization when he arrived with us. He has come a LONG way and is now ready to find that perfect forever home. There is NO aggression whatsoever. He just has never had anyone actually try to pay attention to him before coming to us. He is coming around SLOWLY.

He will take some time, patience and lots of love to finish coming out of his shell. He is young - about 1 1/2 years. He looks like he inherited more of the 'lab' look from his heritage. We are told that the older female on the property (which was a Heeler) was the mom to all. The two older intact males - one was a lab/terrier mix and the other one was probably a lab/flat coat retriever mix.

He is available for adoption or on a foster to adopt program. We highly recommend a fenced in yard with him. He is not a jumper so 4' should be adequate. He is learning to walk on a leash but still needs some work in that area.

His adoption fee is $250.00. He is neutered, current on his shots, housebroken here at the shelter, gets along great with other dogs and is good with kids. He is micro-chipped.

To apply to adopt, please go to our website at and submit an application.
