 . STAN .
  • Labrador Retriever, Mixed Breed
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is Stan, I'm a 1 year old boy loves to play! I'm a silly pup who enjoys treats and knows many commands. I very trainable but need work on my leash mannners and taking treats gently. I love to be with people and greet most everyone with a wagging tail and four paws on the floor. While at the shelter I have done well with most others dogs I have met and am an over the top, exuberant player. Because of my active playstyle, I should meet any other dogs in the home before adoption.

  • Pharaoh Hound, Australian Kelpie
  • Spayed/Neutered
I'm Egypt, an athletic, active girl who is about 4 yrs old. Although I'm sweet and friendly, I can be a bit shy at first, but it's so worth taking the time to get to know me. I have done OK with social, calm dogs in play groups here at the shelter, but I will try to avoid interaction when possible. So, dog parks just aren't my scene, you know? We can't all be party animals! I was previously adopted from the shelter, but my new owners had a hard time controlling me on a leash, since I can be reactive when seeing other dogs. Therefore, a rural home or quiet neighborhood would likely work better for me. I lived with a cat in that home and did well. Do you like magic? Since I'm a regular Houdini looking to escape, supervision will be a must for me when off leash in your yard. I would prefer to spend my time indoors with my people since I bond closely and enjoy being with you. I also have some separation anxiety, so having someone home most of the time should help me adjust more quickly. I am eager to have you show me how to be a good canine citizen and I would love for you to take me through a basic manners class. I know how to sit, love treats, and take them nicely.

  • Flat-Coated Retriever, Mixed Breed

  • Prefers home without small kids
I'm Hercules, an acitve boy who enjoys treats and is generally well mannered. I was surrendered to the shelter because I didn't do well with young, active children running around my home. Therefore, I will need an adult only home, where children do not visit. I like to explore my neighbor hood and need a home with a well fenced yard and an owner who will take me for walks regularly so that I don't get bored and go exploring on my own. I enjoy doing my own thing, but don't get me wrong, I want to be with you but am not the needy type. I am food motivated, take treats nicely, and know some commands. While at the shelter, I have done well with other dogs who are gentle and playful.

I have been around children of all ages and done well in my previous home. I am generally well mannered but have a silly playful side too.

Hi, I'm Radar a sweet and shy boy who is about 2 years old. I would love to have an owner who will show me that the world is a friendly place, since I can be timid in new situations. While at the shelter, I have done well with other dogs that are social and tolerant of my playstyle. I get pretty silly when I'm around other dogs, so having a confident dog friend in my new home could really help build my confidence. I take treats nicely and know some commands. With time and patience, I will settle into the routine and share my affectionate personality with my family.

Hi there, I'm Blu a very distinguished 6 year old gentleman looking for a family to get back in shape with. I admit I am a little fluffy, but hey who doesn't love their treats?! I need a family who will get out there daily and get some exercise with me. Then we can cuddle up and unwind on the sofa, or in your bed. Raise your paw if you are a sweet, snuggly couch potato, like me! While at the shelter I have done well with most dogs that I meet, though I should be introduced properly. I am a smart guy, I know how to sit, shake, lie down, and I walk well on a leash.

  • Airedale Terrier, Mixed Breed
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without cats
Hi, I'm Bristol, a 2 year old young lady who loves to play. I'm a spunky, yet quiet pup, who can be shy when first meeting new people, but I warm up quickly with gentle handling and treats. I'm friendly and outgoing, but am not fond of being fussed with by people I don't know. Small children may overwhelm me, so please use caution when introducing me to the little ones. I got to have a sleepover with one of the foster families and was reported to be a very good girl! I didn't have any accidents in the house, I cuddled up and slept all night on the sofa, and I also rode very well in the car! I did find the cats very fascinating and was super excited when they hissed and ran....so I think I'd prefer a home with just people and dogs. I really like treats and know to take them gently. I haven't learned any commands yet, but I walk well on leash and would love for my new family to teach me some fun tricks! While at the shelter, I have done well with most other dogs I meet and tend to act like a silly puppy like when romping around the yard with my new friends.

Hi! My name is Brownie, and I'm as sweet as I sound. I'm about 2 years old and am great cuddler. While I have been at the shelter, I have done well with most dogs I have met. However, it would be best to feed me on my own, since I can be food protective. I like to play with people, but also am happy to just hang out in the play yard with my doggie friends. I am food motivated, take treats nicely, and already know some basic commands. Because I have a strong prey drive, I will do better in a house without cats. Otherwise, I am eager to please, so continued training should be fun for both of us. Let's learn some new tricks together!

  • Mastiff, Mixed Breed
  • Spayed/Neutered
I'm Charlie, a 6 year old boy with an eagerness to please, and an adorable face. I was surrendered, because I had a hard time getting along with the neighbors' dogs and we would bark and fight with each other through the fence. I can be protective of my property and people, so a home with a secure yard and a family that wont leave me outside alone often will be best. I bond closely with my family, but can take time to warm up to visitors. I prefer long walks on the beach, or hiking in the woods, since dog parks just aren't my scene. I do enjoy the occasional canine friend who is laid back like myself and have lived with another dog and a cat. I do best with slow introductions to new animals, especially cats, since my first instinct can be to chase them. I am housetrained, have good house manners and enjoy taking walks. I will be quite content to unwind at the end of the day, sitting in your lap on the couch, I'm a great cuddler!

  • Pit Bull Terrier

  • Prefers home without catsPrefers home without small kids
Mickey is a handsome mixed breed dog, who is about 6 years old and weighs 55 pounds. Once he got comfortable in his foster home, his confidence has grown and he co-exists peacefully with the other two dogs in the home. This well-mannered dog tends to bond more quickly with women, compared to men, and generally takes time to trust new people. He's housebroken, not very demanding, and generally has a calm, gentle nature that emerges in familiar surroundings. Mickey can be left alone without being destructive, likes going for walks, does well on a leash, and enjoys playing with other dogs his size. He will probably do best in a quiet home without young kids, since he's fearful of loud noises and shies away from lots of commotion. Based on a an experience in a previous home, Mickey's next home should have no cats. If you are looking to rescue an older, mellow dog, who is easy to have around and just needs a loving home to spend his remaining years in, you should meet Mickey. For more information, please call foster mom, Barbara, at 541-890-2308 or call the Jackson County Animal Shelter at 541-774-6654. Mickey's adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor and includes one hour of free in-home professional training, along with a free wellness exam by most veterinarians in Jackson County.

Hi, my name is Remington and I'm about 3 years old. I'm a little bit shy, a little bit silly and a whole lot of cute.

I don't do well with small animals including cats and small dogs. I have lived with dogs my size and done well with dogs at the shelter who are calm and social. I am treat motivated, well mannered and know some basic commands. I can be shy at first but with gentle handling and reassurance I warm up.

I'm Barkley, an athletic, active 1 year old boy looking to be your next adventure buddy. Do you love the sound of the hound dog song? Me too! Therefore, I will do best with someone who is looking to go on long walks and adventures, to allow me to do what I do best, sniff! Otherwise, I may sing a bit too much. I am a pretty smart guy and know how to sit, shake, and lie down. I have also done well with most dogs in play groups at the shelter. Because I am all hound dog, my nose gets the best of me sometimes, so.....I may never be completely trustworthy off leash. I am still a pup and am not perfect all the time. But hey, who is? I am eager to have you show me how to be a good canine citizen and I would love for you to take me through a basic manners class.

Hi, my name is Duke! I'm a 3 year old boy who loves to explore and play. I was surrendered to the shelter, because my family moved and couldn't take me with them. Because some people may worry about my blocky head and exuberant personality, I will do best with an owner who will help me be an advocate for my breed. I'm a smart boy and know some basic commands, but an owner who is committed to providing me with lots of training and exercise will be best for me. While at the shelter I have done well with tolerant dogs who like to play and can handle my play style, so it would be best that I meet any canine and human siblings before heading home. I have been a mostly outdoor dog in my previous home, but am hoping for a home that will let me inside to be a part of the family. That's because I prefer to be around my people. My adoption fee has been been reduced to $75 and includes one hour of free in-home training.

I am eager to have you show me how to be a good canine citizen, and I would love to brush up on some basic obedience. People might worry about my blocky head, so make sure to provide me with lots of training to help me be an advocate for the breed! I have done well in play groups with most dogs. I would make a great jogging buddy, rain or shine, and then we can just hang out and watch Netflix.

 . HAZEL .
 . HAZEL .
  • Australian Kelpie, Mixed Breed
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without catsPrefers home without small kids
Hazel is a sweet, intelligent, alert Australian Kelpie who loves to serve, get attention, and relax. She is a medium to low energy dog, but is a true herder/worker at her core. She very much enjoys getting out on walks, patrolling fenced areas, and engaging obedience protocols, which she masters with remarkable speed. Once trust is established, she loves to get snuggles and belly rubs. Hazel is also excellent walking on loose leash. She rides and stays in cars very well over long periods of time with no anxiety or escalating behaviors. Outstanding with her potty training, she has a high toy drive and moderate to high food drive. Hazel takes a few days to establish a bond. During that time, she appreciates a 3-5 foot special bubble from humans. Breaching her sensitivity causes her to become uncomfortable and she can become reactive should her subtle behavioral signs be disregarded. She is also very reactive to cats and assertive male dogs. Therefore, she should be in a home with no cats, livestock, or any dominant male dogs. Young children and early teenagers will not be the best company for Hazel given her spatial concerns and need for a comprehensive connection with a supportive human. However, once she becomes familiar with new people, she becomes affectionate, eager to serve, and holds high level engagement for long periods of time. She is a quiet girl, seldom offering alert barks or other vocalizations in response to stimuli. She enjoys fetch, chase and other games associated with dogs who possess high prey drives. Within 20-30 minutes, she is easily able to exhaust herself for the day, at which point, naps, belly rubs and the occasional chew toy become the priority for the remainder of the day. She would make a great gun dog due to her high prey drive and limited reactivity to sounds. If Hazel sounds like she may be the perfect dog for you, please contact Leeron, her current foster parent, at 458-210-8564 or call the Jackson County Animal Shelter at 541-774-6654. Her adoption fee has been been reduced to $75 and includes one hour of free in-home training.

I'm Bailey, a silly 5 year old girl who likes to play. I am food motivated, take treats nicely and know some commands. While at the shelter I have done well with other dogs that are social and like to play gently. I am working on learning better manners and would love for my new family to continue to work with me. I can be sensitive when having my feet touched so I may have to go to a groomer to have my nails trimmed. I'm affectionate and love to be around people. With a daily stroll around the block and a comfy bed to call my own, I'll be a happy dog. My adoption fee has been been reduced to $75 and includes one hour of free in-home training.

I'm Chunk, a handsome 3 year old boy, who is smart and active. I was surrendered to the shelter because my owners became homeless and weren't able to keep me with them. I'm a silly fella, who enjoys rough play and chasing toys. While at the shelter, I have done well with other dogs that are active and social like me, since I can be too much for mellow dogs who don't want to play. So, finding dog friends that match my playstyle will be important for successful playtime. I am house trained, crate trained and know many basic commands. Since I'm a lively and intelligent dog, I will do best with an owner who will provided with daily mental and physical stimulation. If we get out and get some exercise daily, we will both be happy and healthy. My adoption fee has been reduced to $75 and includes one hour of free in-home training.

Slate is a handsome, affectionate, 2 year old mixed breed dog who has a dark seal colored body and weighs almost 65 pounds. He is learning skills in his foster home and knows sit, shake and down. He is treat motivated, which makes him easy to train, and he is doing well with leash skills. He is mostly a medium energy dog, but can get excited when his person comes home or when he is in the mood to play. Providing him daily exercise will keep his energy in check. He has good house manners and is not destructive in the home. He is a loving dog who will become deeply attached to his person. He loves to cuddle and snuggle. He rides well in the car and is house trained. Slate has shown to be social with most dogs and does best with dogs who match his play style. He engages in playgroups at the shelter and has successfully interacted and played with three other large breed dogs and two medium-sized dogs during his stay in his foster home. Slate has some anxiety around strangers, which makes him a good guard dog, but he is not completely comfortable with walks around town or in public places. He can get jumpy and mouthy when he wants to play and will likely chase cats, so he will do best in an adult-only without cats. Slate is healthy, up to date on his shots, and has been neutered. Please contact foster mom, Michelle, by phone or text at 510-589-7341 or call the Jackson County Animal Shelter at 541-774-6654. His adoption fee has been been reduced to $75 and includes one hour of free in-home training.
