  • Labrador Retriever, Mixed Breed
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hey there, my name is Bandit and I'm a happy-go-lucky 3 year old boy! First things first as I'm sure you've already noticed my funky hair-do. When I was brought to the shelter as a stray, I was missing quite a bit of hair and needed to start on medications. Don't worry, though, since I've already finished the medications and should have a luscious fur coat again in no time! I'm looking for an active family that will let me come with them on some hikes or a trip to the beach, as I have quite a bit of energy. I'm also very food motivated, so why don't we take a basic obedience class as a way for us to bond? I hear you get lots and lots of treats! Here at the shelter I've gotten along well in play groups with otherh dogs and am known to be quite the social boy with my canine companions. So, if you're looking for a sweet boy to join you in all of your outdoor activities and don't mind waiting for all of my hair to grow back, I'd love for you to take me home today!

  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
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 Junior, and I'm a sensitive boy who is about 1 year old. I was surrendered to the shelter because I did not fit my owners lifestyle, once I warm up, I'm and active boy who loves to play. Because I grew up in a quiet rural area, all this excitement at the shelter can be a little scary. I have been out to several playgroups here at the shelter and do okay with other calm dogs. I will probably never be a dog park guy though as I'm insecure around other canine. Therefore, I will do best with a patient person who will build my confidence and continue my socialization. So far, I'm growing more confident every day! I've learned to walk on leash, love treats, and will give happy wags to new friends who talk to me softly and give me pets. I'm ready to show my new family how wonderful I am, so let's work together to continue my training.

Hi, my name is Archie and I'm a 3 year old happy-go-lucky boy! I'm an active dog looking for a family that can include me in their daily activities such as playing games and hiking! Treats are my absolute favorite thing and I like to learn new tricks so why not sign us up for a basic obedience class? It would be a great way for us to bond and help me to continue to be a good advocate for my breed. I already know how to sit on command and am an expert at catching treats in the air. Here at the shelter I've done well in play groups with other dogs and am known to be quite the social fellow. So, if you're looking for a new adventure buddy I'd love to join you!

Hi, I'm Captain! I'm just over 1 year old athletic and active guy looking to be your next workout buddy! Food and toys are my absolute favorite things! Sometimes my exuberance gets the best of me and I can get a little too excited when handed a treat or a toy. I'll need your help to continue my education so I can be a good canine citizen, so let's take advantage of our 1hr free training session and then maybe build our bond with obedience classes. Here at the shelter I've gotten along well with other dogs and am known to be quite the social boy. So if you're an active person who is looking for a dog for an exercise buddy and someone to relax on the couch with after…then I'm your guy!

Hi! My name is Hudson and I'm a 3-year-old boy who is curious and affectionate. I am a smart fella who takes treats gently and knows lots of commands including shake! I am a well-mannered dog who enjoys toys and being with my people. Here at the shelter, I have done well in small playgroups with well-mannered dogs, I seem to prefer female dog friends over males. I dream of a family who will take me out to play daily, and maybe even go for a hike on the weekends! Then we can head back home to cuddle up and watch a movie. Doesn't that sound wonderful?

Hi there, Johnny is my name and I'm a hunky 1 year old boy looking for love. 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'm working hard on walking on leash and not using my mouth to play. I know how to take treats gently and how to sit already, so we will be ahead of the game. Here at the shelter I have enjoyed playing with other active social pups like myself. I would love to find a family who will take me on some adventures or whatever comes our way! So, if you are looking for a beach buddy or a hiking pal and will then want to settle in for a good snuggle...I'm, your guy!

  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, my name is Stewie and I'm a 2 year old male. I was transferred from another animal shelter, so I could find my perfect home. I'm an active boy and will need a well-fenced yard, since I used to get out and wander in previous neighborhood. Although I could benefit from some leash training, I already know how to sit, shake, lay down, and catch treats. While at the shelter I have done well with other large dogs, but may be too active for small dogs. My previous owner said I did well with children in my home. I'm a vocal guy and have been known to sing the song of my people, but exercise can help keep me from talking all day. If you're an active person looking for a dog to match, then I'm your boy!

  • Chihuahua
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without small kids
Hi, I'm Louie, a tiny fella who is about 5 years old. I was surrendered to the shelter because I am uncomfortable with being picked up all the time and will let you know when I've had enough handling. Although know I'm a cute little guy, I'm really looking for is a quiet home where I will be treated like a real dog! I'm spending some time with a trainer in foster care and am starting to relax away from the shelter. I would prefer to be the only pet in my home, but may tolerate a calm cat or small dog friend. I enjoy going for walks, taking naps in my bed, and getting treats. I am housetrained and walk well on leash. However, a home without small kids would be preferred. If you are looking for a friend that's not too needy, but likes to be by your side, then please call the Jackson County Animal Shelter at 541-774-6654 to be put in touch with my foster mom, Kaye, and schedule a time to meet me.

  • Labrador Retriever, German Shepherd Dog
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I'm Hank! I'm a big, hunky fella who is about 2 years old. I love people, treats and toys. In fact, I love everything! Sometimes I think I'm a small dog, so will try to climb in your lap and slobber all over your face. I had only been in my previous home for a couple of months, but my new owner wasn't comfortable keeping me after she came home one day and discovered her older dog had passed. Although I have been getting along with other dogs in play groups here at the Shelter, I would prefer a home with no other dogs in my next home. I can be protective of my toys and my person, so I would also benefit from an owner experienced with protective breeds. I am housetrained, ride well in the car, friendly, and playful. I am working hard on my grown up manners, know sit and lie down, and take treats softly. So, if you are looking for a big goofy buddy, then I am your guy! My adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor!
