"ELSA" pretty blue eyed mix


here's my MCAS weblink

Hello, my name is Elsa! I am a pretty girl who has landed herself homeless. My shelter friends don't know what my past experience has been like but based on the behavior I have been exhibiting here it seems I haven't had the best start in life. I have been shy of strangers, new environments and reactive to other dogs in the kennel. I have bonded quickly with my handler and will likely do the same with my new adopter.

An active family with no other dogs who is dedicated to keeping me safe and using reward based training to teach me good skills is what I'm seeking. Do you sound like a good match for me? I am around 1 year old and weigh 40 pounds

Rottweiler + Boxer Mix
5 years old
57 pounds

Oh my darling, Oh my darling, Oh my Darling Clementine! You are lost and gone forever, dreadful sorry, Clementine. I love that song! Mainly because it has my name in it, but it’s kind of a sad song. Oh well, life isn’t always rainbows and candy. It kinda makes you appreciate the good times you have when a little melancholy saunters through your life. But I could really use one of those rainbows about now. I feel a little lost and would love the opportunity to share all the love I have to give. I have had some ups and downs in my life, and I’d really like to walk on the straight path. I have never really had consistency in my life, so it’s about time I find some security. Someone that can be consistent with me. I really love treats and listen well, I just really wanna do whatever kinda stuff you want to teach me! I do get pretty nervous and uneasy when put in stressful situations, so I am looking for a home with children 10+. I have lived with cats before and don’t really mind it, so I can put that on my resume, I suppose. And I absolutely love to have other dogs to play with! I have been crate trained for a while so I have that down pretty well. Maybe someone out there can give this southern girl another chance at love? It sure would do me good, and I might just brighten your world in a way you never expected.
5 yrs-57lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes: microchip, spay, reduced cost training class, 1 month pet health insurance, free veterinary exam , leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet

this is Clementine when she was still at MCAS, before being transferred.  Sweet dog!!
Hello, my name is Clementine! I have arrived at the shelter because my family is unable to take care of me. They report that I have lived with cats, can live with other respectful dogs after a slow introduction, and really like attention! Although I've already reached the age of maturity, I could use some guidance on house training and an active owner who can keep me out of trouble!


The shelter is asking that my new family have no children under 10 and can use reward base training methods only. Please come down and meet me! I am around 5 years old and weigh 60 pounds

"GRETEL" your "one and only" charming Yorkie mix


here's my MCAS weblink

Gretel is a tan and silver female Yorkshire Terrier mix. She is approximately 5 years old and weighs about 13.7 lbs. All you need is to look into her adorable little face, you will be as charmed by her as we are. Gretel would like a home where she would be an only pet because she doesn't want to share her people with other pets.

 The shelter recommends a private lesson with a trainer so a new owner can properly work with Gretel to teach her to walk calmly past other dogs. Gretel is not suited to apartment living as she does bark at noises.

"MANNY" lovely sensitive Doberman


here's my MCAS weblink 

Manny is my name, and I am a handsome gentleman who ended up in the shelter after I was abandoned by my owners. I am sweet as can be and a mature guy looking for a stable home to let me settle in. Won't you give me a chance to steal your heart?! Please ask to meet me today. I am about 5 years old and I weigh 85lbs.

"BRONY" cute little guy wants a quiet home


here's my MCAS weblink

Hello, my name is Brony. I am about 5 years old and weigh slightly under 10 pounds. My original owner fell on hard times was unable to care for me. It's a big scary world out there and I could really use a home with patient owners who will build up my self-confidence using reward based training methods. 




 I lived with another dog but may not do well with one in my new home. Please ask the shelter staff about my history with other dogs. Because I have shown signs of being frightened when handled, the shelter recommends a quiet adult home or if there are kids in my new home that they are 12 or older and understand that being loud is not my cup of tea. Slow, steady and quiet is what I would like in a new home.

"LITTLE BEAR" cute Pomeranian mix


here's my MCAS weblink

Hello all my name is Little Bear, fits right? A nice family found me on the streets and took me in . They want you to know I have good house manners and I am the consummate lap dog.

I am a bit of a talker so am apartment life is probably not the best choice for me. I am around years old and weigh in at 11 lbs. Do I sound like a good match to you? Please ask about me today.

'HANK" Doxie/Chi mix -nice guy, he keeps trying


here's my MCAS weblink

Hello world my name is Hank and I want your attention.

I have good house manners, love walks, car rides and get along with most dogs I meet but strangers leaning over me and trying to touch me just frankly scares me. 


I am not what you would call an ideal first time dog owner dog. I have knocked about recently, never really feeling secure. I guess I really need that special family, you know the one with no young children and time to let me settle in.
Do you think you have the right home situation for this 11 lb weary 5 year old?
