From Ashley: This is Rocky. We adopted him at only 6 weeks of age from a bad home. He was filled with worms and said to have had his shots. He was malnourished as well. He, in fact, did not have his shots and ended up getting parvo as a puppy. We thought he was surely a goner. With almost $900 in vet bills later, Rocky pulled through.
We were told he was a jack Russell and chihuahua mix. Once he reached over 25 lbs we got him tested. He is actually a Boxer, German Shepard, Alaskan Eskimo Dog, and a combination of 20% of unknown mix breeds(way down the line in his family tree).
He is now 45 lbs, healthy, hyper, and beautiful. (Hopefully) he calms down, he still pees on new people from too much excitement. Needless to say, he is very loved.
From Karen: Benny was a stray we adopted from the shelter. He is very playful. He loves toys and will greet company with a toy in his mouth wanting to play. He gets along well with other dogs. When he gets on a scent, he acts just like our purebred Beagle we had.
He is 28 lbs. and has very short, thick front legs and rather large feet for his small size. His back legs are longer and gives him a “jacked up” look. He has a tail that is always curled over his back. He can jump very high for his size. He is very laid back most of the time. He is content with being held for as long as you want. Just a very sweet dog.
From Kim: Baxter is believed to be an Australian Shepherd Basset Hound mix. Baxter is a sweet loving hound mix who is great with dogs and kids. He has a beautiful howl and a beautiful coat and he definitely has herding traits.
He has very short legs and Bassett eyes. His tail is also very thick at the base. His coat is think and the hair on his neck and back is slightly wiry. We got him from the Humane Society when he was 4 so we don’t know much about his parents. We believe he is a Australian shepherd Basset Hound mix.
From Michael: Hutch is a Labrador Retriever Dalmatian mix. He is a people-doggie! He took to all family members immediately, is content to lay around me all the time, and is always eager to meet animals, though he’s still learning how to temper his excitement due to his being a rescue dog multiple times.
Clearly a mix of his breeds, some days he loves to listen and others he makes you prove it! Hutch is definitely an athletic dog, playful, and eager to please.
From Jeannie: Tauriel is a Miniature Poodle Jack Russell Terrier Mix She is active all day,loves to be outside.She has the intelligence of the Poodle and the stubbornness of the Jack Russell.Loves everyone,including our 3 cats.
I would not recommend this mix for a quiet household.She never stops moving,even has trouble falling asleep at night.
Tauriel’s hair is very soft,and silky,she must be brushed daily to keep it from looking matted.
If she is disciplined,she will argue with you,I have never had a dog that wanted to discuss things before.
From Christine: Snoop is a Rat Terrier Rottweiler Mix. Snoop is very energetic, like a Rat Terrier. He is also very gentle and loves to cuddle, like our full breed Rottie. He’s very vocal, not a barker, but will let us know he’s upset when we’ve been gone, at work, without him.
He loves anyone that gives him attention. He’s great with kids, He has a Rottie head and stature, with Rat Terrier ears and markings. Snoop weighs 52 lbs, he is seven years old. He has been with us since he was 8 weeks old.
From Amy: Duke is Hound German Shepherd Mix. He is fun, loving, cute, lots of energy. He loves to sit in front of the heater and is very sharp toothed and he loves to chew. He sniffs everything and everyone. He knocks on doors to get in and out. Has eaten over 50 toys and chewed four beds.
Love to be around women but he barks very loud around strange men. Cries when my son’s leave to go home. Gets excited when we turn to go to his vet. Loves to eat table food but hates dog food.
I love Duke with all my heart adopted from ASAP for my son 20th birthday. He was 6 weeks old. He is now 14 months and 72 lbs.
She weights about 60 pounds. She loves to swim across our pond. She is very smart learned her command at an early age. She also has small spots on her under belly that are the color of a chocolate lab. She loves to come inside and lay on the top of our couch. She had seizures as a puppy.
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.

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.
