Adoptable Dogs

Before you fall in love with one of our dogs (its difficult not to), have you filled out an application? At this time, visitors at our shelter are limited to those who have submitted an app.

Creek

2½ year old, 75 lb. male
Hound Mix

Creek has wiggled his way into the hearts of our volunteers. 

Once you’re Creek’s best friend, prepare yourself for some laughs while you watch his awkward body chase toys, a good cuddle session where he paws at you if you stop, and an invitation to scratch his butt.

When he first meets a new person, he is initially insecure and will let out a few barks. We understand this can come off as scary to some people because he is a big boy with a deep voice. But honestly, Creek is all talk! Take it slow, give him a few treats, then he will be your best friend for life. He has more difficulty warming up to men. He’s looking for someone who understands “stranger danger.”

Creek is looking for a foster-to-adopt home because he is currently in physical therapy for hip dysplasia.

Other Dogs

Creek is very social with other dogs. He loves to have friends. He's that guy at the party that talks to everyone.

Cats

Unknown - he can be tested.

Zoe

4 year old, 50 lb. female
Her paperwork says she is a Pitbull mix. We think she is a Mountain Cur mix.

Zoe is a beautiful, sweet girl who is house trained and crate trained. She is super athletic, agile & smart!

She is incredibly devoted & loyal to her people. When she sees someone that she loves, her little nub tail doesn’t stop wagging and all she wants to do is for you to say hi to her and welcome her into your lap for snuggles. Once you have her trust, there is no turning back! She is loyal and will always greet you with a smile on her face.

Zoe was insecure about meeting new people when she first arrived at Lighthouse. She has gotten much more confident with strangers but her forever family should still be considerate and aware of her feelings when she meets someone new.

Training

Zoe has been to professional training so she knows basic commands and also knows some fun ones like how to give a high five. Zoe's forever home should be understanding about her insecurity with new people and will want to continue with her obedience training so that when she does get scared, she will listen to you and know that she can trust you.

Other Dogs

Zoe has made a lot of dog friends at Lighthouse (loves to play chase!) but it's all on her own terms - she appreciates a slow intro and she will let the other dogs know that she is the queen so she plays best with dogs who accept corrections.

Cats

Zoe has lived with a cat before but she does chase. If she were to live with a cat, they would need to be very dog-savvy.

Liberty

2 year old, 50 lb. female
Hound/Bully Mix

Liberty is a sweet girl with a fun energy level. She is an active, bouncy dog outdoors who settles nicely inside.

Her favorite activity is chasing after a rope toy or playing tug of war.

She is very devoted to her people – she is constantly looking for someone to give an endless amount of kisses to. While she does LOVE to play, she also finds time to roll over for a belly rub and cuddle session.

Liberty knows how to sit and is very attentive when you have treats. She would be a fun pup to teach new things to.

Other Dogs

Liberty appreciates a slow introduction with other dogs but once she has a good dog friend, she loves to play chase & wrestle and she shares toys nicely with others.

Cats

No cats.

Roxy

6 year old, 70 lb. female
Lab Mix

Roxy is a sweet & loyal girl. She’s not always super affectionate upon first meeting someone (she doesn’t give it all up on her first date!) but once she bonds with you, she’ll dish out the kisses, ask for belly rubs and cuddle.

She arrived with her sister who she loved to play outdoors with. Her sister has found her forever home and Roxy is ready for her turn!

Roxy is house-trained and crate trained.

She loves going on walks where she can sniff everything she possibly can and work on all of the commands that she knows.

Training

Roxy knows how to sit, lay down, stay, heel, come, and place. Roxy went to training classes because she is an insecure girl who would express her insecurities by reacting (barking at other dogs, especially smaller ones). She knows now that she can trust her confident person to give her guidance and work through the commands she knows, rather than bark. Roxy is very smart, learns quickly and is ready for her forever home. She also knows fun commands like sit pretty and roll over.

Her new family will understand that they are adopting a sweet, lovely, fully trained dog but will also respect that Roxy needs to continue her training so she continues on this path to success!

Other Dogs

Roxy has played with dogs 45 lb. and up and did well with them. She does not like small dogs.

Cats

No cats.

Roxy would like a confident, experienced dog owner with a fully fenced, secure yard so she can run and play to her heart’s content without worrying about small animals in her space but we would consider placing Roxy in a home without a fence for the right person/family.

Gem

5-year-old, 62 lb. female
Hound

Gem’s name suits her perfectly. She is just a sweet, happy girl.

She has a really nice energy level. When out in our play yard, her tail never stops wagging. She loves to zoom around the yard with her best dog friend and take in all of the smells with her hound nose!

When indoors in her crate, she doesn’t make a peep. She doesn’t mind when other dogs pass her kennel and just relaxes until it’s her turn to go outside.

Gem is currently around 60 lb. but she needs to lose a few pounds. Don’t tell her we told you that though…

Gem has nice house manners. She is house-trained.

Winston

3-4 year old, 55 lb. male
Mixed Breed

Winston is a little confused by the shelter setting. He is ready for his forever home that will make him feel safe & happy!

He used to love being outdoors playing with toys, the volunteers & other dogs. But lately, he is focused on getting back inside to snuggle up in his bed. Once Winston is settled in his forever home, we think he will find his spark again.

Winston is looking for someone who will appreciate his active side and then cuddle up when he’s ready to crash!

He is crate trained and is working on house training – he’s almost there.

Other Dogs

Dog friendly - He has met several dogs at our shelter who he has loved instantly

Cats

Winston was tested with cats once at our shelter and did well for his first meeting. He did not display prey drive and wasn't too focused on them. In a home setting, once he's comfortable, he may try to play or chase cats. We could test him again for applicants.

Ariel

3-year-old, 67 lb. female
Mixed Breed

Ariel is an active & fun girl outdoors (loves to play chase & tug of war!) but seems to be a couch potato indoors. Most of her time indoors is spent cuddling with her dog friend.

Ariel is full of kisses and just wants to be in your lap for attention but she does have an insecure side to her. She would appreciate a forever family who will do obedience training with her to help her build her confidence.

She is very intelligent and eager to please. She knows how to sit and is very food motivated!

She is crate trained and we think she may be house trained.

Other Dogs

Cole

4-year-old, 66 lb. male
Mixed Breed

Cole is looking for his next new best pal! He’s spunky and fun and loves to play. Tug-of-war is his favorite game, and he’ll love to pull back and forth with you all over the yard. He’s a high energy dog, so our volunteers throw a ball around for him to fetch in the yard any time he’s out. Cole is always ready to play, and would make a great companion for someone who wants an active dog.

Cole is truly as happy-go-lucky as they come, and loves everyone he meets. His happy smile and bright beautiful amber eyes are filled with curiosity and love! He’s a silly boy, rearing and ready to go have some fun!

He doesn’t have accidents in his room, but does bark in his kennel at the shelter in the room with other dogs.

Other Dogs

Cole will likely do best as the only dog in the home for now. The shelter that he came from had him in playgroup but we haven't had luck finding Cole a dog friend here. Our best guess is that Cole needs to be out of the shelter setting, decompress a bit, and then may be capable of having dog companions.
