From Jenn: Lieutenant Dan is a happy and goofy dog. He has the smarts of the Border Collie but the personality of the Boston Terrier. He weighs about 42 lbs and is just over 1 year old. His ears started out floppy but perked up at about 9-10 weeks old.
He will go-go-go all day if needed but will also be lazy all day if needed. He loves the water and to chase balls. He loves to chase animals and goes off leash no problem. He is friendly with people and dogs. He doesn’t really herd people but he definitely does the border collie creeping and or stalking.
As a puppy he was a bit aggressive to people and fearful. But now that he has been socialized he is a great all around dog. He likes to come off as tough and will bark at people he is unsure of, but then will get all excited and excessively lick their faces. He turned out to be a very interesting mixed puppy and everyone always comments on how different he is.
From Cassandra: Marley is a Yellow Lab German Shepherd Mix. Marley is sensitive, caring, she loves tennis balls, and loves to play basketball specifically rebounding. Marley is very protective of me. I am an Army veteran with PTSD my Marley is a God sent. She enables calms my spirit and forgives my mood swings. There are days when I do not want to get out of bed, when I’m that way Marley motivates me to get out and walk it off. I know I would be lost possibly dead without her.
From Bo: She is still a puppy, so hard to tell what she will look like when she is older, but she has the markings of the Australian Shepherd Mix and build more like the Bull Mastiff. She has one blue eye and one green eye.
She is a love and both breeds are known for their loyalty and their love of their owners, so we think she is going to be a great dog! If anyone else out there has an Australian Shepherd Mix Bull Mastiff mix, we would love to see some pictures to try and gauge what size she will be.
From Scottie: Pixie is a Boston Terrier Mix with American Pit Bull Terrier. We know both parents of this stocky plus size girl. She is funny…loves everyone, cats, dogs, and children. She had no clue that she is to big to be a lap dog. She lives to play and run and swim. She a total bed hog. She sleeps under the covers. We would not trade the world for get.
She makes this face when she does not get her way that…We just laugh. She had 4 sibblings whom she will not go anywhere with out. She has a nickname “nanny pic pic” be cause we foster dogs all the time and she is great with them.
From Leah: This is Skud, an almost five year old Portuguese Water Dog / Doberman Pinscher Mix. He has an extremely calm temperament, he’s good with kids, and loves to lay and chew his Nylabone, but isn’t too cuddly unless you’re sad or he’s scared. He and our other dog, a female pit/hound mix, are absolutely in love and hang out all day.
He’s very protective of her and his humans! Give him people to pet him, food to eat, and his woman, and he’s happy.

From Katelyn: I adopted Riley when he was only eight weeks old. It is thought that he is a English Pointer English Setter Mix. He’s now over a year and about 66 pounds. He is very tall and lean and loves to run around outside. He’s one of the most loving dogs that I have ever met and is very smart.
He enjoys playing with other dogs and loves kids. Due to his size, he may be a little overwhelming for small children, but he means well.
From Chastidy: Griz is short for Griz Lee Bear. Griz has the best personality. Everyone who meets him loves him.
Great Pyrenees mix
with American Pit Bull Terrier. His mother was full American Pit Bull Terrier and he has the breed’s skull and muscle build. He has longer hair of Great Pyrenees and double dew claws. He has golden eyes with black eyeliner and red and salt and pepper fur.
He has the best temperament ever. He is extremely intelligent. He assumed the role of being not only my baby and best friend but also my guardian and protector. He is my ride or die guy!
From Cindy: Thor is a lovable little bundle of energy and fun! I am pretty sure he’s a Chi-Russell (Jack Russell Chihuahua Mix) after talking to the vet and looking at puppy pics online. The young girl I got him from said that he was a “Wire Haired Terrier” and when I asked her what breed of terrier, she said that was the breed. As far as I know, “Wire Haired Terrier” isn’t an actual breed so, Chi-Russell is what I’m thinking and the vet said he tends to agree especially on the chihuahua part.
He has been a bundle of fun since we brought him home, but we have to keep a VERY close eye on him because he wants to eat everything he can get in his mouth! He loves to dig in the couch and try to “bury” his toys in the cushions. He goes through spurts of extremely high energy and then crashes for a nap, but I assume a lot of the ups and downs are due to the fact that he is still just a baby.
He loves our two girls and tries his best to get the cats to play with him, but they would much rather he just stayed away. He loves playing with his toys and wants them all to be in one spot. We are working on potty training and have only had a few accidents so far. He seems to be catching on pretty well.
From Sabine: We think she is a Catahoula Pit Bull Mix, We found her in the front yard at about 8 weeks old. Always on the go. She is there months old now, and loves to play. She loves to bite everything.
She is very smart. She was house broken in a less than 2 weeks. We love her so much. But I think the other 3 dogs we have are still thinking about it. I am pretty sure she has pitbull in her because everyone around here has a pitbull.
We think she is a mix of a Catahoula and Pitbull. I have looked up all kinds of mix breeds. And this is the closest I could get. Because I need to tell the vet something before I take her to get shots.
From Brianna: Baxter is my best friend in the world. He LOVES cuddles and regardless of size, he seems to believe he’s a lapdog.
He’s very protective of my boyfriend and me and I have not had a puppy that listens better than he does. I have had him off leash from the moment I got him and he refuses to leave his designated area. He loves going on the fourwheeler, running and has just learned to jump.
He is such a sweetheart and I wouldn’t give him up for the world.
From Mike: I adopted a beautiful Chow Chow Border Collie mix female, 2 year and 1 month old from a local shelter in May of last year. I thank you for what you are doing. l got the lead on “Hanna” from a national hotline email similar to Allmutt.com who knew I was looking for a Chow mix to replace my Chow Akita who died of cancer last year. See Attached picture of Hanna.
She was taken in from a neglectful owner who fed her table scraps some days other days nothing. She was chained outside and never washed or brushed. She weighed 20 lbs. on intake at the shelter. Three months later, she was a respectful 30 pounds. Four months later on a follow up visit she weighed in at a pudgy, round 42 lbs. – round and pudgy but happy.
She has boundless energy. She loves to play fetch – indoors only. Outside there are too many things more interesting than a knotted rope. She will on the run at 200 miles per hour towards the front door or back lawn fence, throw the rope/ball 6 foot. in the air and catch it without missing a step. She also walks on her back feet and rings a bell on a door to the back yard whenever she needs to go outside. She is very smart and athletic. What else would you expect from a rescued Chow Border Collie Mix!
Thanks again for what you do.
From Nancy : Lisa about 4 years old, very lively. weighs 37 pounds, medium size. loves to cuddle but still shy with strangers. she has a permanent tag wag.
I really have no clue what breed she is. she was a stray that was rescued. Her hair is very short, blonde and she’s beginning to shed. She is slim and very muscular. I thought maybe she had a little Labrador Retriever in her except for the size. My groomer thought maybe a little American Pit Bull Terrier. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
She’s very sweet and loves to cuddle.
From : Monty is 1/4 American Staffordshire Terrier , 1/8 Rottweiler, and 5/8 unknown mix, with low possibilities of Papillon and Samoyed.Great with people, bad with dogs, but his loyalty makes up for it.
He used to have a chocolate-lab brother, but after he passed Monty got a little hostile. He is so nice to the family and licks everyone he meets! His favorite activities are sleeping on human beds, taking walks, and playing with ANY stick that he can find.
From Rose: Bear is a Pomeranian Australian Shepherd mix. Bear is a very loving, protective well mannered dog. He is very active loves exercise, playing peek a boo, playing fetch but doesn’t like giving back the item you throw he likes to tease.
He’ll follow me or my kids everywhere we go in the house, likes to cuddle. Bear also has a favorite song he sings too. When I’m cooking he’s right there on the floor sitting all proper with his paws
crossed watching me.
