DALTON

dalton adoptable pet of the week

Woof! Hello! My name is Dalton, and I am an adult hound pitbull mix. I’m a plus-sized gal with adorable cow spots on my white fur. I weigh just over 60 lbs, so there’s just a little more of me to love. 🙂

I recently arrived at the shelter as a stray doggie, and I have settled in beautifully. My infectious smile and sunny personality have already won me lots of human friends, who praise me for my affectionate nature and loving heart. There is no such thing as a stranger around me! I love everyone quickly and with no reservations. Life is all about loving, right?

I can be a little jumpy and silly at times, but I correct very well and am a real people pleaser. Once I have a minute to settle, I’m actually a really good walker on my leash who listens well and tries to be obedient (sometimes I just can’t help myself; I have to jump up and hug you!)

I know how to sit on command, so I’m one smart pooch. I love treats (but easily share them and my food!), so I will be easy to train. I have such a confident and outgoing demeanor that I would thrive in just about any household, including one with older children. My goofy ways might be a bit much for super young kids, but bigger children would be a perfect fit for me. I’d love to have some playmates!

Do you have a doggie already and are looking for a canine companion for your pooch? I’m social with other pups! I seem to do best with male pooches. If you have a male doggie at home, please bring him along with you when you come to visit me.

I can’t wait to meet you!

GUINESS 

Guiness

Hello there! My name is Guiness, and I am a five year old boxer mix. I’m a cute little guy {although full grown, I only weigh 38 lbs} with fuzzy brindle and white fur. I have tall ears that make me look like a bat sometimes. I guess you can just call me Batdog. 🙂

I was found at a local car dealership as a stray dog. The nice man there tried to take care of me for as long as he could, but he eventually had to surrender me to the shelter. That was very sad and confusing for me. Fortunately, I have adjusted well to life here at the shelter and have already made a ton of new human friends. Although I can be a little shy initially, I’m a friendly, fun loving, occasionally silly, but always sweet boy.

I walk very nicely on my leash and have good manners overall. I can tug just a bit when I’m excited, but I listen well and respond beautifully to correction. I am working on learning how to sit, and since I love treats so much, I am making great progress. Turns out I’m a smart boy, too!

I easily share all my food, toys, and treats. I’m a generous little guy! I love to be petted, and I enjoy long walks play, and cuddle sessions. I approach everyone, stranger and friend alike, with a wiggle and a smile. I truly have a heart of gold.

I would do best in a home with teenagers and adults. Little kids are a bit overwhelming for me … they move so fast! Loving teens and adults would be perfect for me! I will bring lots of smiles, sunshine, and fun into a household. I can’t wait to find a new home of my own. I hope to meet my new family soon!
