"EDWARDO" adorable PUGGLE type - learning to trust


Here's my MCAS weblink

My name is Edwardo and I am in need of a very special family. See, I have a fear of people. Which is why I might growl at you when I am in my kennel, please ask to see me outside of the kennel, I present much better! I came to the shelter as a stray and it has taken me awhile to settle in here. I know how to sit for a treat, but when I am afraid I may not listen very well.




Are you looking for an active small dog? Well that is me. We will need to start on obedience training right away, and I will need you to keep me safe and help reduce my fear of people. It would be best to be in a home with children over the age of 10 years. I am about 2 years old and I weigh 14lbs.

"MARY JANE - a big smile for everyone!

I am a girl on the GO! I like to explore and look for new adventures. I am looking for an active home who likes to go places and take their dog with them. My previous owner said I was very housetrained and walked nicely on a leash. I have a small bag of tricks and would love to learn more! I lived previously with other dogs and kids, but slow introductions are always recommended.



I like to give gentle kisses

I have shown a lack of confidence in meeting some dogs here at the shelter. It may be best for me to be the only pet or that you have a setup that allows for slow integration. I am NOT recommended as a dog park dog. I may be a little stressed out until I settle into my new home, so it is recommended that you have the time to exercise me daily and not leave me alone for long hours until I am settled. I am 3 years of age and I weigh a healthy 49.

"PEPPER" wiggly, adorable little white Chi mix


Here's my MCAS weblink

Hello, my name is Pepper! I am a cute little chihuahua who is looking for a new family with no children under 8! I arrived here as a stray dog so my friends can't tell you what my house habits are like but they can say I've been social with people and a little overwhelmed by the environment.



 A family who is patient, gentle and can build a relationship with me is what I'm after! Please come down and meet me. I am around 4 1/2 years old and weigh 6.4 pounds I had my neuter surgery on 5/27/14

Here's Casper's MCAS weblink

Hello, my name is Casper! I am an active young boy that is looking for a new family! My shelter friends can't tell you what my house manners are like but they can say I've been social with people, curious to explore, and ready to start a new adventure!


Based on breed traits, a home with no small critters is recommended. Please come down and meet me! I am around 10 months of age and I weigh 20lbs.

"BUGSY" zippy and cute guy!


Here's Bugsy's MCAS weblink

Are you ready for a zippy and energetic guy like me? I am always on the go but I will wind down after some good ol' exercise and training sessions. The shelter always recommends reward based training classes and attendance may be required as part of my adoption. 



 I am looking for an outgoing family who has an energetic lifestyle and wants to include a canine companion. I am just over a year of age and I weigh a healthy 58lbs. Ask about ME today!

"HAZEL" wonderful St Bernard/mastiff mix


Here's Hazels' MCAS weblink

Hazel is a sweet gal looking for a home with no children. See Hazel has some arthritis, which can be painful for a big gal like her when it goes untreated. Since she has been at the shelter we started her on some pain medication, and she is feeling much better. She is still shy of new people, especially men. But just meet this doll and you will fall!



She is about 5 years old and she weighs 133lbs, she could use a diet! Please come down and meet her today!

"JOEY" BIG wonderful sweetie, good on leash


Here's my MCAS weblink

Hello… I know I caught your eye! Yes I am big 3 year old boy weighing in at 102 lbs. Some weight I could stand to loose but the rest is just a big muscular boy. My dad was unable to care for me and my grandmother said I was a bit too much for her.

Honestly I don't blame her, I am a lot of dog! I have lived with other dogs and cats but I am a little too interested in the small versions of my species so the shelter is asking that only families with large dogs ask about me. A slow introduction is a must for success! As to cats I'm not sure. I like some and was scared of others, yes a big guy like me scared of a cat. Please don't laugh..
My grandmother said I get nervous when I am not with my people so I am hoping my new family has a good schedule so we can spend lots of time together.
I think I will make you a very very happy family if you adopt me.

"BRITTANY" the BEST Rat terrier mix - with a little TLC


Here's my MCAS weblink!

I am a perfectly sized companion for someone who doesn't mind a dog that needs a little fixing up. I will likely require high quality dog food and regular flea control to keep my skin issues from becoming a problem ever again. The shelter has started me on treatment and I just need a loving person who will take it from here. 


 I am about 5 years of age and I weigh 21lbs. Please ask about FOSTERING or adopting me today!
