I’m Athena, an 11 month old girl who is athletic and curious. I was surrendered to the shelter because my owners said they didn’t have enough time for me. I’m a playful pup that will need consistent exercise and training. I have lived with other large dogs and have done well with dogs at the shelter that are playful and social. My previous family says I am too enthusiastic to play gently with small animals and children — and the shelter staff agree. I am food motivated, love to learn and already know some basic commands. Although I am housetrained, I could use some work on my manners. I enjoy playing fetch and chewing on my toys. If we get out and get some exercise daily, I will be happy to unwind at the end of the day lounging at your feet.

I will do best with a patient person who will build my confidence and continue my socialization. In playgroups I have done well with other dogs my size. An outgoing dog in my new home could really help me feel more comfortable and teach me the ropes. I take treats nicely and am generally well mannered. Because I am such a sensitive fella, I will need to meet all the members of my family, especially children, before heading home.

I’m Bailey, a handsome 9 year old boy who is looking for a home to spend my golden years in. Please don’t pass me up because of my age, since there are many benefits to adopting a senior dog. Let me just tell you a few. I don’t need much in the way of exercise, just an occasional stroll around the block and I’m a happy fella. I am housetrained, so we don’t have to deal any of that pee pad nonsense. I already know some commands and am well mannered. I love to lounge at your feet and take a nap or chew on a bone. And best of all, I still have a lot of love to give. All I need is a home that understands the needs of a senior gentleman such as myself, arthritis, poor hearing, and all. Although I still get around OK, I will likely benefit from arthritis meds to reduce pain and inflammation in my legs for my remaining years. I have enjoyed being in play groups with other dogs here at the shelter, but in previous homes, I have learned I don’t do well with small dogs and cats. I HAVE DONE WELL WITH: some large dogs, no small dogs or cats

  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hilo is an easy-going, independent 6-year-old pit bull mix, who is past all that puppy nonsense and is looking for a home to settle into for his remaining years. This patient dog doesn’t demand lots of attention, but he likes having people around to hang out with. His previous owner often left him alone, so he would climb the fence in search of companionship. Therefore, he will do best in a home with a secure fence and where he is not left outside by himself. Hilo is s alert to his surroundings and will initially bark at strange sounds or new people in his home. However, he warms up quickly, has been gentle with kids who have visited, and will definitely bond with his humans over time. He walks nicely on the leash, enjoys sniffing and exploring his surroundings, and has not been reactive to other dogs or new people he encounters on his walks. However, he will likely chase cats that run from him. I’ve been fostering Hilo for a few weeks to give him a break from the Animal Shelter and have found this pleasant dog to be one of the easiest to have in my home. At the Shelter, he participated in play groups and did well with social female dogs his size. Since then, he has peacefully co-existed in my home with my older male dog and a younger male dog who lives nearby. Hilo is housebroken, treat motivated, and knows basic commands, including sit, down, and shake. Hilo is healthy and up to date on his vaccines. If you are looking for a well-mannered, low-maintenance canine companion, please e-mail or call foster mom, Barbara, at 541-890-2308 for more information or to schedule a time to meet Hilo. His adoption fee has been paid by a generous donor through the Jackson County Animal Shelter and includes one hour of free in-home training, along with a free wellness exam by a veterinarian of your choice in Jackson County.

I’m Thor, an athletic, active dog who is looking to be your next workout buddy. At 1 year old, 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. I was surrendered to the shelter because my owner could no longer care for me. I am sweet, affectionate, and love to play games. I will do best with someone who is looking to go on long walks and allow me to do what I do best, sniff! However, I may never be completely trustworthy off leash. I know basic commands and take treats gently. I have not been exposed to many other dogs in my life and I tend to be nervous around them, so I will need a patient owner to continue my socialization and help me adjust living indoors. Although I have been good with kids, I have been known to knock them over. I’ve been told I am a diamond in the rough; let’s work together to make sure I become the perfect dog for you!

I’m so sweet, and a bit shy at first, but it’s so worth taking the time to get to know me, promise! My name is Rosie and I am about 1 year old. I am a sensitive soul who takes time warming up to strangers. However, once I do, I am very sweet and affectionate. Due to my fearful nature at the shelter, I am being cared for in a foster home, where I have done well with older children, other dogs, and I am house trained. Because I will try to chase cats and livestock, I will do best in a home without them. I love playing tug and want to end my day snuggling under the covers with you in bed, since I enjoy cuddling! If you want to set up a time to meet or want more information, please call my foster mom, Dianne, at 541-646-1504 or the Jackson County Animal Shelter at 541-774-6654.

I’m Crosby, a playful 2 year old boy who is looking for an active home to match. While at the shelter I have been working hard learning leash manners and basic commands. My new family will need to continue my education so I don’t forget my manners. I love games and toys, especially fetching squeaky balls or solving puzzle toys that have food in them. Once we get out and get some exercise, I am happy to lounge at your feet and take a nap. During my stay at the shelter I have done well with very social, easy going dogs, and prefer females. While I would prefer to be the only dog in my home, I may do ok with the right doggy sibling. Therefore, I will need to meet any potential canine siblings at the shelter before going home.

I’m Sugar — an adorable older gal looking for a special home to spend my golden years in. I am about 7 years old, sweet, affectionate, and love people. My foster mom said that I don’t like sharing my toys or people with other dogs, but enjoy the occasional canine friend. So I will do best as the only dog in the home or I will need an easy going dog that will let me be in charge. I take treats gently and know many basic commands. The doctor says I have arthritis in my knees and hips and that I should lose 30 lbs so I can be more comfortable. With glucosamine supplement and weight loss, my joints will strenghten and I should be able to get around more easily. I walk well on leash, and bond quickly to my people. Please don’t pass me up because of my age! Instead, provide me with a stroll around the block and a comfy bed, and I will be a happy dog. You know I deserve it.

  • Staffordshire Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Sammie is a muscle-bound, energetic 5 year old Staffordshire terrier, who is currently in foster care and doing well. She has a lot of energy, is very athletic, and LOVES her chew toys. She will play fetch for hours on end. In fact, you will often see her cram as many toys in her mouth as she can…quite a comical little girl. She connects well with her people and loves to hang out in the house with them. She is house broken, kennel trained, not destructive in the home, and does fairly well walking on leash. She is obedient, will sit for her food and jumps right in the tub for a bath. It’s as if getting a bath was a normal routine in her former life or she just LOVES to play in water! Therefore, a kiddie pool is this girl’s dream. She gets along with most dogs, but doesn’t do well with some females. So, an introduction with other dogs in the home is a must to make sure it is a good fit. She does a bit of resource guarding, which may need to be managed. Sammie will bark at strangers and cats, but otherwise is fairly quiet in her foster home situation. She would not do well in a home with cats, but seems to get along most children. Of note, is that when Sammie is fixated on her toys, it can be difficult to get her attention away from the toys. In fact, she prefers to chew on rocks, which can be hazardous and will need to be monitored. So, while there are a few minor issues with this girl, she is a pleasure to have in her foster home and would make a good companion dog for most anyone. For more information or to set up a time to meet Sammie, please call her foster mom, Michelle, at 510-589-7341 or the Jackson County Animal Shelter at 541-774-6654.
