Peanut has been adopted. Check back for his Success Story.
Peanut is a three pound, neutered Apple Head Chihuahua. He is very playful and sweet, no barking
or biting, fortunately. He is,
however, very fast and one cannot lose sight of him for a minute. He loves playing with other dogs and
would need a home where he can play, but not run off!! Is he housebroken?? I really don't know but if he has an
accident, it will be tiny!!
Bentley and Scruffy
and Scruffy (right) are two of what we call the "Freedom
Five." They were in a condemned
house for months on end, with a vat of dry food and water full of rats. Needless to say, it was a nightmare life. But we have had them here for two months
and they are adjusting well. Bentley
is probably a Fox Hound mix, 40 lbs, neutered and
probably not housebroken. Scruffy is
some sort of male, Wirehaired Terrier mix, 40 lbs, neutered
and probably not housebroken either.
They are loving and sweet but not young. We are guessing their ages to be around 6
or 7 years old. Both would be fine
in the country or just a quiet life with a family who will love them. They do not have to be together! Please consider one of them as you will
be adopting a true rescue.
Thunder is a
gorgeous, male, Siberian Husky/German Shepherd mix. He is three years old, neutered and seems
to be housebroken, but no guarantee.
He weighs about 80 lbs and has beautiful
blue eyes. He greets people with a low growl!! Thunder is going to take an experienced,
strong owner. He was confined in an
abandoned house and was isolated to the point he does not trust anyone
initially. Once he knows you, he is
fine. I love him and have no problem
at all with walking him or brushing him.
He needs someone kind and gentle and he will be fine, but also
someone strong. I really think he
would do best as an only dog and he will be a fabulous companion.
Meet Lily, the cutest Pit Bull puppy in the world!! She is 4 months old and weighs about 15 lbs and will always be small. We do not know what she is mixed with,
but probably a small breed. She has
gold eyes and a lavender coat, is spayed and working on figuring out being
housebroken. Lily is being fostered
with several other dogs and cats and loves everyone. She is adorable and gentle, but
playful. We vote her cutie pie of
Lebo (dumped in Lebo, Ks.) is a year old, male, Shepherd
mix. He is neutered, up to date on
shots, and only weighs 35 lbs. (He
looks bigger in the picture!) Lebo
has a lot of energy, loves to run and play with other dogs and gets along
fine with kids and adults. Lebo is
not housebroken yet, but he is smart, and anyone who works will him will be
able to train him fairly fast. We
will continue working on it here also.
He does well on a leash, but loves to run away from you when you
want to catch him. We think he is
Boomer is a year old mix of some sort! He appears to be a Lab, maybe English
Setter. He is a male, neutered, and
housebroken. Boomer is great with
kids and other dogs, BUT seems leery of men at first. He will bark and act very scary, but is
fine once he gets to know them.
He is great with women!
Boomer is about 70 lbs and very
strong. Anyone who adopts him will
have to exercise him and be able to control him on a leash. I use a harness which seems to work
fine. He was in city shelter and not
doing well so we moved him here so he could exercise. Boomer needs
more socialization, but is really beautiful and will make someone a
Samantha is an 8
month old hound dog...maybe coonhound? She only weighs 40 lbs and is spayed and mostly housebroken. Samantha wandered onto a farm in Wichita
and hung around. The couple loved
her but could not keep her and called us.
She was very thin when they found her, but she is fattening up
now. Scout loves to play and is a
total goofball. She shows no aggression
to a person or animal at any time.
Hounds actually make wonderful family pets because of their
easy going disposition and loving nature.
One cannot help but love this little gal.
Zoey is the granddaughter of the famous "Rock Star"
in our book, Under A Kansas Sky!
She somehow ended up in the local pound and Honey's original owners
called me to bail her out. She
stayed there for a month and although a HUGE favorite, she did not get
adopted. She is a year old Pit mix,
spayed and housebroken of about 50 lbs, and gets
along great with kids and other dogs.
So far she is behaving herself with the cats in her foster
home. Isn't she too cute for words?
Fiona has been
an amazing transformation since she came here. She had spent her three years locked in a
kennel, and she was not socialized upon arrival. Months later, she is
everyone's favorite. She is loving and
gentle, but still a bit submissive.
She walks on a leash well and appears to be housebroken. She is spayed, up to date on shots and
gentle with everyone. Isn't she gorgeous???
Sammy has been adopted. Check back for his Success Story!
Sammy is now 8 months old and
housebroken. He loves other dogs, is
fine with cats, energetic outside but settles down nicely inside. He has a gorgeous black, glossy lab coat
and weighs about 40 pounds. Sammy will be such a great companion for some family.!! (he is neutered
Sammy is a six month old Lab mix...and a live wire! He is only 35-40 lbs,
neutered and housebroken. Sammy gets
along great with dogs and cats (and kids) and likes to do the "high
jump!" He calms down nicely in
the house but is on the go outside.
We think he is a mix of a jumping jack, a kangaroo and a lab!! Throw a ball for him and he will bring it
back to you until the cows come home.
Dexter is a two
year old Retriever/Shepherd mix. He
is neutered, up to date on shots, weighs 65 lbs, and
almost housebroken. He is well
behaved in the house and never needs to be crated, he adores kids and other
dogs, but we have no information on cats. He can jump a fence in a heartbeat! We
think he would be great in the circus. Why has he not gotten
adopted? I think one of the reasons
is he is protective at our gate if strangers come and people want a dog to
be super friendly if neighbors stop by.
However, Dexter is great once he gets to know someone and lets our
staff in the gate with no problem. I
guess I am one of those people who feel safer with a protective dog, but
not everyone wants that. In
the meantime, he is waiting for his forever family. Surely they will
come along soon.
