MIDNIGHT is a Belgium Shepherd mix, who is about 6-8 years old. Midnight is a beautiful boy, who loves attention and to be petted. He has not been around cats and would do best with older kids. He has been at the sanctuary for quite a while and has not had any experience with kids for a long time. He loves everyone he meets though. He gets excited when you first arrive at the sanctuary but soon settles down. Midnight has good manners, listens well and will be easily trained. All he wants is a loving family and home to call his own!
Midnight is neutered, current on his routine shots and house trained. He also has his bags packed and is ready to move on!!
DOTTIE just happens to be one of my personal favorites as I spent quite a while playing fetch with her one day. She loves to have you bounce the ball so that she can try to catch it and chase it. She wore me out!!
Dottie is a Dalmatian mix and maybe has some Australian Cattle Dog in her. She is such a sweet girl and has been at the sanctuary for a LONG time. She is ready for that special loving family to come and take her home. She loves attention and LOVES playing with water also. She likes to go for walks and hang around people.
Dottie loves her toys and has a ball running around and acting silly in her yard! She does, however, need a 6’ privacy fence as she can climb over a 4’ fence. She does not run off though and just wants to be with whomever is working at the sanctuary. She craves human attention and contact. She is in desperate need of a home of her own.
If you are looking for a companion dog who is a smart, easy going gal that wants to please her new family, then Dottie is the girl for you!
Dottie is spayed, up to date on current shots and prefers a home without cats.
TEXAS is a hound/shepherd mix and is camera shy! She just did not want to have her picture taken. She really is a sweet and loving girl though and is estimated to be about 6 years old.
Texas is good with other dogs and loves to run around and play. Bless her heart, she has been at the sanctuary for too long and would love to have a home of her own. Having doggy buddies is nice, but having a human person or family to herself would be the greatest thing ever. She has a marvelous disposition and is so happy to see anyone and everyone. Due to her size, bigger kids are recommended. She is very well mannered but could easily knock over a small child. It’s been a long time since she got to play with any children. Texas is spayed and current on all of her routine shots. Please, help us find Texas a home.
BODIE is a Shepherd/Rottweiler mix and is 6-7 years old. He’s a big boy with an even bigger heart. He is well mannered, sweet and loving. He is always happy to see anyone and everyone.
Bodie has a bobbed tail, and we’re really not sure what he is a mixture of. All we know for sure is that he has tons of personality that will make his new family just fall in love with him. He LOVES human companionship. He likes to tuck his head under your arm, in your coat or just about anywhere when you are petting him. He wants to be as close as possible and is just a very sweet boy.
Bodie is neutered, up to date with his routine shots and house trained.
BENTLEY (according to his vet) is an All American Dog—in other words, he is an old fashioned, Heinz 57 mutt. Tell us his breed, and you can have him!! The vet thinks he is about 6 or 7 years old. He is good with other dogs, kids and people but has not been cat tested. He has been known to have some food aggression with some of the other dogs.
Bentley has had health problems for many years which were thought to be from his thyroid. He was recently checked by the vet who said that his thyroid levels are fine, his skin scrapings were free of parasites and suspects that he is allergic to his food, which is not always the best dog food to be found. That could be the cause of some of the food aggression. His diet has recently been changed, and it is hoped that he will soon begin to look better. He is currently overweight and has lost a lot of his hair. Nevertheless, he is deserving of a home with people of his own.
Bentley is neutered and up to date on all of his routine shots. Like all of the dogs at the sanctuary, he is also on flea and tick preventative.
BETTY is a spayed 6 yr. old Mountain Cur mix with a wonderfully sweet, gentle disposition. She loves attention and being a companion dog. She gets along with other dogs too. Betty has class. She listens and has good manners. All she needs now is a family of her own to give her lots of love. Medium in size, not a barker and an easy keeper. Betty was part of another rescue in a neighboring town. The woman got really sick and could not care for her animals and contacted All Creatures who agreed to take her dogs. Shortly thereafter, their foster mom passed away from a brain aneurysm.
Unfortunately, at about the time Betty came to the shelter, the shelter lost its volunteers because of their own personal reasons, moves, etc. This is a rural shelter, so it has been hard to adopt the dogs out here and to keep volunteers. Betty and the others have been waiting for years hoping for the opportunity for a new loving home. Betty is also spayed and current on all of her routine shots. Won’t you please help us to find the perfect home and family for these furry kids?
