You Know Dasher & Dancer and..... yep, Meet Prancer!
Nope, this adorable little guy isn't named after the reindeer, but rather after his affinity for literally "prancing" around as he runs and plays so proudly. Prancer is a 2 to 3 year old Westie/Poodle mix, about 15 pounds, with a silky soft coat and bright, intelligent eyes. This little guy just loves to run and play with the big dogs, loves kids and adores riding in a car. He's just such a fun, loving pup... there's is simply nothing NOT to love about him. Prancer will simply prance (4 comments)
This is what... a sweet, fun, snuggle monster, all wrapped up in this adorable puppy body... part pug and part beagle: Puggle! Truffle is about four years old and is such a fun little girl, so silly and playful and just downright sweet! Truffle, sweet... get it? She could stand to lose a couple pounds, but loves to romp and run around so much, that shouldn't be too hard to do. She even enjoys taking a turn on the treadmill. Truffle loves other dogs and will chase and chase around (4 comments)
You know what they say about good things coming in small packages. This tiny, 18 month old chihuahua is maybe a whopping five pounds soaking wet, but she's packed with love and fun. She's full of energy, so curious and ready for anything. She's happy to be carried around and would make a perfect purse puppy. Just make sure it's an appropriate purse... I admit I have one for my 9 pound chihuahua who loves to go shopping with me, tucked discreetly away. Chiquita never gets enough of the people (7 comments)

Have you ever met a "Chug"? Well, now you have. This adorable girl is a chihuahua/pug mix and she's about one year old... or so the good folks at the shelter are guessing. She was left tied to the front door of the shelter one very cold evening, where she must have been for a few hours. She was freezing and scared when they took her in, gave her a warm meal and lots of love. Now she's showing her true colors, being playful, curious, spunky and ever cheerful. And what a cuddler (1 comments)

Jay Jay is a five month old chihuahua/dachshund mix just packed with puppy spunk and fiestiness. He's such a silly guy, curious about everything and he simply cannot get enough playing. Then he loves to settle down, cuddle up and get a good dose of lovin. He's going to need to be taught some manners and needs a home ready to deal with puppy energy. He's got those sharp puppy teeth, (4 comments)
This Girl Positively Sparkles With Puppy Joy... Meet Lacey!
Lacey is a four month old Jack Russel Terrier, Chihuahua mix. This is one fiesty girl with enough spunk and sparkle for two pups! She loves to play with her siblings and lots of toys and is a complete rascal. She is just a puppy, though, so is really into chewing with those sharp puppy teeth so she needs a few lessons on manners and such. What a fun girl, though. She keeps the folks at the shelter in stitches as she clumsily tries to run with the big (3 comments)
Poor, sweet missy. Her long-time owner, who loves her so much, had to let her go due to personal health issues. Missy was the love of her life and she tearfully entrusted the good folks at the shelter to find her a wonderful new home. Missy is a schnauzer/Australian shepard mix and is four years old. She's been a tad spoiled so she's looking to continue that in her new home. She is very playful, sweet and super loyal. She is a little nervous around smaller, rough kids, but older, gentler (7 comments)

Cheerful & Feisty With A Face That Intrigues... Meet Lucy!
This adorable gal is Lucy, a five year old Boston Terrier/French Bulldog mix. And what an all around great gal she is... with personality to spare! She might be described as a "tom-boy" as she just dives into playing with other dogs and shows her feisty side. And just look at those gorgeous, intriguing eyes. In some cultures different colored eyes are considered to be good luck. Lucy loves everyone she meets, is very polite even to cats and adores kids. She's going to fit into almost any family (7 comments)
Laid Back Gal, Ready to be Your Co-Pilot... Meet Suzi!
Miss Suzi is a very sweet, 8-year-old corgi/collie mix with an over abundance of personality. She's going to make someone such a great little companion as she just adores her walks and is an angel on a leash. Suzi also loves her car rides, maybe even very best of all, and will just ride and ride, keeping an eye on everything as she goes. She is also great with other dogs and seems to love everyone she meets. Suzi is going to be such an easy girl to have (3 comments)
Charming Older Man, Looking For A Lonesome Lap... Meet Chester!
Chester's is one of those stories that just broke my heart and made me want to hurt the folks who treated him so badly. This poor guy was just recently rescued from a puppy mill where he spent his entire nine years of life being used and neglected. He didn't get the food he should and his teeth were in such bad shape, he had to have all but three removed. His neglected coat is still recovering, but it's growing in nicely and he starting to show how handsome (6 comments)
This very sweet girl has spent most of her life up until now living outside and now is her chance to find the kind of life she deserves.... and now so craves! When she arrived at the shelter, the indoors kind of confused her, but now she realizes it's the way to go! She is such a cuddler and loves her belly rubbed. She is the queen of charming and smart to boot. She's already learned so many things. ZiZi is going to make someone an incredible companion, especially someone (6 comments)
Super Smart, Big, Goofy & Friendly... Meet Scooby Doo!
The kind folks at the shelter gave this guy the name Scooby Doo because he reminded them of that famous one with his goofy, but friendly demeanor. He's also a little mischievious. The poor pup has lived a lot of his 9 months on the streets, eating garbage, leaves, whatever he needed to just to get by. That also means, he never learned basic manners. But he is beyond smart and is already picking up so much especially since he is super motivated by food and the need to (3 comments)
Two Older Gals Looking For A Home Together... Meet Maisy and Sadie!
Maisy and Sadie are two older girls who have not only been together most of their lives, but are the very best of friends. They are so close, in fact, that they will only be adopted out together as they simply couldn't bear to be separated. When not together, they are noticeably depressed and won't even eat, then they're estatic when reunited. Maisy is a border collie mix and is still pretty active and playful. Sadie has slowed down a bit more, but is happy and (5 comments)

This Sweet Girl is Destined To Be Your Lap Dog... Meet Ellie Mae
Ellie Mae is a 1 to 2 year old chihuahua mix who is quiet and shy, but oh so sweet. She likes to watch the others play first, then slowly joins in. Then she has a ball, proudly struting around, enjoying her friends. Ellie Mae is happiest when she's cuddled safely on a human's lap and she is the nap queen! She was found with another shelter dog, Indie, and plays especially well with her as the two seem well bonded. They can be adopted together (8 comments)
This guy is one of those pups I would love to take myself if only we didn't already have FOUR rescued dogs. But he just seems so perfect, so ready to fit seemlessly into some lucky person's life. Guiness is a 2 to 3 year old rottweiler/hound mix, who is about 70 pounds. He is about as smart as they come and already knows tons of commands, but the best part is that he's so devoted and eager to please. He maintains eye contact beautifully and focuses so well, he's going (5 comments)

Following that, the day is full of "doggie" events including contests, a bbq, huge raffle, beauty treatments like a dog wash and nail clipping station, "ask an expert" table for all those dog questions can be addressed (5 comments)
