ESMERELDA IS IN FOSTER CARE! PLEASE FILL OUT THE ADOPTION APPLICATION AND WE WILL CALL YOU AS SOON AS WE RECEIVE IT TO SET UP AN APPOINTMENT TO MEET HER! I am super sweet! I do have problems with my vision and elbows. I will need pain management medication for the rest of my life.

I am a big ham, and a gentle giant.
It takes a while for me to warm up to you, but once I do I will love to just lay on the couch with you. I am a bit of an old soul, but I definitely have a playful side. I love playing with toys.
I get along with other dogs, but am also an independent dog who likes to do her own thing. She doesn’t shed much, and has a thin coat. I walk great on a leash, and enjoy being in a car.
I like going in a kennel when I need to, and love peanut butter in a Kong. I understand “sit,” and “get back.” Sometimes, I get so excited I forget about personal space.
I am so sweet and very calm. All I really want to do is lay around and be near my person.

I was found by animal control as a stray and they transferred me to the shelter to be adopted.

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

All family members and any dogs from the household need to be present at the time of the adoption.

Please fill out an online application and we will give you a call as soon as we receive it. Visit our ‘Adopt’ page to view adoption process steps, policies, requirements and FAQ. View our ‘Visit’ page for hours and directions to our shelter. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Our website is always kept 100% up to date with who is currently available. All new animals (40/week) are added to the site 2 weeks before their availability date to give you time to fill out your adoption application and get the family ready to come out to the shelter that day. As soon as animals are adopted, they are moved to the Adopted Pets page so if they are still listed on the Adoptable Dogs or Cats page, they are still available. So keep any eye on the site for any animals being added as available for adoption as new animals are added everyday! We would recommend if you haven’t done so already that you submit a general online adoption application with us so it is on file for when you are ready to come out and adopt. The adoption counselors will be able to show you many that would be a good fit for your family.
