Hi, my name is Bagheera. I'm a very loving 2-year-old gal, who likes to please. I'm enjoying time in a foster home, where I'm getting along well with the other dogs in the home. I am housetrained, can be left alone in the home without being destructive, and I recently started doing some agility work, which I really enjoy! I'm a smart girl who knows cute tricks that I perform for yummy snacks, of course. I was surrendered to the shelter by my previous owner after I got into trouble at a dog park. However, at the shelter, I participated in play groups with other dogs and and did well with the calm canines. Mostly, I prefer hanging out with my people instead of other dogs. So, if you are looking for a kind-hearted gal to hang out by your side after we play some games or take a walk; here I am! Please contact my foster mom, Dianne, at 541-646-1504 for more information or to set up a time to meet me.

Peaches is my name and I'm a 2 year old lady trying to find the perfect garden to bloom in! I was surrendered to the shelter after deciding a member of the family that visited the home was not a friend. Before you judge me though hear me outI'm kind of a cautious girl who bonds close and can be protective of my family. So, the fast movements of new people might scare me and put on the defense, I am looking for a home with either no children or respectful older children. I am a very smart girl who would love to bond with you by taking a basic obedience class, not only will it keep us active it will help show us how to properly deal with this big world. My previous owners told my shelter friends I was house trained, lived well with cats and dogs. Here at the shelter I have done well in play groups with dogs who are respectful and not to rambunctious. When I was 6 months old I was hit by a car and so on occasion I have a slight limp. Nothing to worry about from what my owner said it just causes me to be cautious around rambunctious pups. So, if you are looking for a sweet loyal lady who will make you smile and watch your back, I will be furever your snuggle buddy.

Hi! I'm Bruno, a 7 month old, athletic, active dog looking to be your next workout buddy. I am a smart, silly pup who is 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 know some basic commands, take treats nicely and respond to consistant training. While at the shelter I have enjoyed playing with other dogs but they don't always respond well to my exhuberant playstyle. That's why it's so important for me to find the right type of dog friends, who can keep up with me. This means I may not be a dog park kind of dog but will do well with structured playgroups. I love toys and will entertain myself (and you) with my jolly spirit. P.S I give the best shakes!

I'm Montana, a 6 month old boy, who is a sensitive soul. I'm still a young, energetic guy, although sometimes I can be a bit shy at first. I warm up quickly with a soft voice and yummy treats. I am looking for a family that will commit to a lifetime of training, exercise, and love for years to come. I have done well with other social canine friends here at the shelter. I also love treats and take them ever so gently. I would love to continue my education and build my confidence as well as a close bond with you by taking obedience classes. My perfect family will allow me time to adjust and will not force me into new and potentially overwhelming situations. After we get some exercise, I will be happy to get some cuddles while we watch holiday movies.

Duckie here, and I am a smart 8-month-old guy, with eagerness to please and an adorable face. What more could you want? I am a sweet boy, who loves being around my people. After getting some exercise, I will be happy to just hang out at your feet. I am still young and working on my big boy manners, so I would love for you to take me through a basic obedience class to help me fine tune them. I already know sit, lie down, and how to take treats softly. Here at the shelter I have done well in play groups with other active social dogs like myself. So, let's hit the trail and then snuggle up and watch a movie.
