Find A Pet


Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Labrador Retriever
Age: 5 years
Gender: Female

I love other dogs & all people! 

My siblings include:  Adam, Amber, Brendan, Jackie, Landon, Macon, Marcus and Tanner! 

Note from Dawn’s foster mom:

She is the sweetest little puppy and is very smart.  Dawn likes to be held like a baby in your arms and her belly rubbed. She will fall asleep if you do that. She tends to go and lay by herself where she can watch everyone but be by herself when she is getting tired. She knows the commands of sit, paw (shake) and nice (taking a treat nicely). She also is housebroken and only used the puppy pads a couple of times inside (when it was raining really bad). She gets along great with other dogs (even big dogs) and will let them tease her to a point and then she will stick up for herself. She is going to be a great addition to any family. I was feeding her dry food in the morning and at dinnertime I gave her 1/3 can of Pedigree puppy food and a little bit of dry food. For treats she was doing great with Milkbone or Old Roy (Walmart brand) treats. I also gave her Dino chews and chicken rawhides (the small ones) and she was fine with both. No stomach issues with any of the different treats. For snacks during the day I would give her baby carrots (cut up) or ice cubes and they seemed to help with her teething. She plays with any kind of toys but attempted to gnaw on the footlong bone I had for the big dogs. When it was nap time or bed time I just said the words Night Night and she would run to the crate and lay down. Dawn picks up on what you want from her very quickly and if she is told no a couple of times she will listen.

I will be available for adoption on February 24th. I cannot have any visitors before February 24th. You will need to fill out an online application and receive a phone call back from a staff member that everything is ok with the application prior to February 24th. All family members and any dogs from the household need to be present at the time of the adoption.

We open at 9 am Saturday mornings and we will be helping adoptions in the order of when they submitted an approved application to us. There will be a sign in sheet on the front door at 8:30 am so that we can pull applications for the people that arrive between 8:30-9am. Again, the order in which adoptions will come in to the shelter to see any adoptable dogs or cats first thing on Sunday mornings will be as to when the application was submitted to Animal House Shelter so there is no need to come to the shelter any earlier than 8:30 to sign in. This will be the procedure for people that arrive between 8:30-9am.

After 9am, on Saturday mornings it will be first come, first serve after we help all of the adoptions that signed in between 8:30-9am. Most people submit general applications to us which do not specify a name or a particular litter they are interested in so there is no way for us to know until people arrive Saturday morning at 8:30 how many people are interested in a particular litter, puppy, kitten, cat or adult dog. We always have around 300 dogs & cats available for adoption and the adoption counselors will help you to find the right companion for your family! We look forward to meeting you!

Adoption donation: $450

All dogs are microchipped, neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm tested and started on Tri Heart Plus & Vectra 3D.

Please fill out the adoption application and we will call you as soon as we receive it.
