  • German Shepherd Dog
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi! I'm Abby, a sweet girl who is about 6 years old. I'm a mellow lady who likes treats and knows some basic commands. Because I'm a little overweight, I'll need an owner who will give me a healthy diet and exercise. While at the shelter, I have done well with other dogs who are calm and friendly like me. It's the active pups that are too much for me, since I'm more into lounging in the sun or relaxing in the shade. My ideal home would take me for a daily stroll around the block and then we could take a nap or watch a movie together.

  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
I'm Rosie, a 1 year old girl who is so sweet, and a bit shy at first, but it's so worth taking the time to get to know me, promise! I came to the shelter, because my owner was homeless and couldn't take care of me anymore. I love treats, so even though I'm a little shy, I'm just a few cookies away from being your best friend. While at the shelter, I have done well with most dogs I have met and enjoy running around the yard with my friends. I would love to find a family that will allow me to snuggle up on the sofa and watch movie with them after we've had our evening walk.

  • Beagle, Mixed Breed
  • Spayed/Neutered
I'm Lola, a gentle 10 year old girl who is looking for a quiet home to call my own. I was surrendered to the shelter after my owner passed away and no one in the family could take care of me. I am housetrained, well mannered, and know some basic commands. I have lived with cats, dogs and kids over 10 years old. I'm very mellow and enjoy going for short walks and taking naps! Do I sound like just what you're looking for? Please say yes! I can be a little shy at the shelter, but my sweet personality really shines in a home. Let's go back to your place and get to know each other a little better. My adoption fee has been reduced to $75 and includes one hour of free in-home training, if needed.

My name is Reeses and I'm a 1 year old spunky pup looking for a home to provide me with training, exercise, and love for years to come. I'm a lively and intelligent dog who will do best with daily mental and physical stimulation. I love treats, am eager to please, and know some commands. While at the shelter, I prefer hanging out with social dogs, who are tolerant and active like me.

  • Border Collie, Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
Scooter here, at 5yr old I am a cool dude that would rather be a sidekick than a body pillow. Don't get me wrong I want to be with my people, I just don't need to be fussed over. This is how I came to the shelter, my owners surrendered me after learning I prefer adults over children. I'm a lively and intelligent dog who will need to be provided with daily mental and physical stimulation. I take treats gently and already know some commands. I am house trained, ride well in cars, and am friendly to visitors. Here at the shelter I have done well with most other dogs in play groups. So if you are looking for an intelligent guy who is passed that puppy stage, who wants to hang out and enjoy life...that's me!

  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I'm Maisy, a playful pup who is about 9 months old. I have been told my zest for life can be a little too much, so my new home will need to provide me with some training, and exercise, to help me better handle my enthusiasm. I'm very food motivated and already know some basic commands. While at the shelter I have done well with some dogs but not all. I pick and choose my friends and seem to do best with sturdy, tolerant male dogs. I love attention and will zoom around the room if we are playing with toys. I'm silly that way. If you're up for some puppy training and lots of fun, then let's go for a run or take a hike together. I'm the perfect friend for an adventure.

  • Brussels Griffon
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is SADIE, and I am a shy and quiet 5-year-old Brussels Griffon. I am currently living with a foster family, where I am learning to come out of my shell. I am fine living with other dogs, and I do OK with respectful children. I am curious about the world around me, and I enjoy hanging out in the kitchen (where all the good stuff is). I am house trained, and I know how to use a doggy door. Because I am so shy, I am a flight risk: a well-fenced yard is a must for me. With a little time and patience, though, I will bond with my people and become a loving and quiet companion. To schedule a meet and greet with me, contact the Jackson County Animal Shelter or my foster mom, Liisa, at 541-210-4166.

  • German Shepherd Dog, Mixed Breed
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I'm Chief, a handsome boy who is about 2 years old. I was brought to the shelter because my owners didn't have a home and left me with some friends, but he never came back for me. I'm an active, curious dog who likes to be with my people and go on adventures! I am food motivated and know some commands but I need some work on my basic manners. When I get excited about food, play or toys I can get mouthy and need help learning to take things gently. While at the shelter I have done well with other dogs who are playful and social. If we get some exercise daily, I'm happy to relax at your feet for cuddles and to chew on a bone.

Hi there, Cedric is my name at 4yrs old I am a hardy boy who loves to do my own thing. Don't get me wrong, I want to be with you, but I also do well on my own. Although I prefer to be the only dog in my home, I may be OK with the occasional canine friend, but I'll never be a dog park kind of dog. I enjoy chewing on bones and take them gently I also know how to sit, shake and lie down. So if you are looking for a side kick and not a body pillow I may be your guy.

  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
I'm Pete, a handsome 7 year old guy, who is looking for a retirement home. I was brought to the shelter as a stray who had wandered onto a property and had a scuffle with the owner's dog. Therefore, I would prefer my retirement home had either no dogs or calm, gentle ones, like myself. I'm a sweet old guy, who takes treats gently and knows how to sit. This affectionate, outgoing guy truly loves my people and wants to spend time with them. I would enjoy daily walks and then heading home to just hang out. 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. My adoption fee has been reduced to $75 and includes one hour of free in-home training.

Hi, I'm Bosco an affectionate boy who is about 2 years old. I'm a friendly, outgoing pup, who enjoys learning new tricks and playing with toys. I take treats nicely, am generally well-mannered, and know some basic commands. While at the shelter I have done well with other dogs who are playful like me. Because fetching is my favorite game to play with my two-legged friends, setting time aside each day for some fun with me will be important. The, after a good romp, I will be happy to lounge at your feet and chew a bone or my toy. If I sound like your new best friend, you might just be right! So, let's go for a walk and get to know each other.

  • Labrador Retriever, Pointer

  • Prefers home without small kids
Hi, I'm Salem, a big, handsome boy who is about 4 years old. I was surrendered to the shelter, because we moved and I was too protective of my owner in a multi-family household. I'm a loyal, affectionate dog who loves attention. I am smart, playful and know many basic commands. I love to play fetch and romp around the yard with other dogs. I have lived with other dogs, cats, and horses and have done well with all. I have also been around children 3-18, but the youngsters make me a little nervous. Therefore, I would prefer a home with respectful older children or none at all. My perfect home would be a rural home in the country, where I can be the protector of my family.

  • American Staffordshire Terrier, Mixed Breed
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, I'm Bandit, a silly boy who is about 4 years old. I came to the shelter when my owners moved out and left me behind. I'm a playful, curious fella who needs a family that will commit to consistent exercise, training, and lots of love. I am very food motivated and can get pretty excited when I think you have a treat. Then, I may get mouthy and will do best with having treats tossed to me or on to the floor. I know some cute tricks and will gladly show them off to you. While at the shelter, I have done best with other dogs who are calm and respectful. I have lived with other dogs and may do OK with the occasional canine visitor, but I'm not a dog park kind of dog. After playing some fetch or going for a nice walk, I will be ready to relax and cuddle up for the night.

 . FAITH .  . FAITH .
  • Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler
Faith is a pretty red heeler, who is about 3 years old and was found as a stray. She was very scared and not socialized well with people when she first came to the Shelter. Since then, she has been in foster care to build her trust in humans again. She is house trained, uses a dog door, and knows basic commands. She has been enrolled in dog agility classes to boost her confidence and has been doing well. Although she gets along with some dogs, it would be best for her to be the only dog in her next home, so that she will bond to the person that adopts her. Because she is not a high energy dog, she enjoys being a house dog and hanging out on the couch with her person. She will do best in a quiet home without young children, since she will always be a timid dog. Her next owner will need to be very patient with her until she gets comfortable in her new home. Her adoption fee has been reduced to $75 and includes one hour of free in-home training. For more information or to set up a time to meet Faith, please call her foster mom, Diane, at 541-646-1504 or call the Jackson County Animal Shelter at 541-774-6654.

  • Bernese Mountain Dog, Mixed Breed
  • Spayed/Neutered
Hi, My name is Ripley and I am about 11 years old. I was surrendered to the shelter, because my owners moved and couldn't take me with them. I'm a friendly, outgoing boy who enjoys playtime and cuddle time. I have lived with other dogs and done well in playgroups with most dogs I've met. I can be possessive of my food and treats toward other dogs in my home. Therefore, I will do best with an owner who will keep me separate from other animals during feeding times. I take treats gently and know basic commands. I am house trained, lived with cats and am a well mannered boy who is looking for a loving home. My adoption fee has been reduced to $75 and includes one hour of free in-home training, if needed.
