This stunning girl is Roxie. She’s loves to give kisses and she is so smart; she will give her paw and sit pretty to show off for her human visitors. This goofy girl just can’t contain her excitement when she sees a leash or knows it’s time to play outside. Roxie’s ideal family would be one that is active and can keep her exercised & stimulated.

Looking for a friend who has spunk and smarts along with tons of love and licks to give? Trina is your girl! She came to the shelter after being found as an emaciated stray but has since put healthy weight on. This girl was definitely someone’s pet at some point – she knows her basic commands and will gladly give her paw to you. Trina loves walks and would be ecstatic to have a fenced-in yard of her own to play in with her future family. She may do well sharing her home with other dogs but would need a meet & greet with them first. Consider our sweet Trina when making a new addition to your family.
Meet Kirby! When this spunky little guy first came to us as a stray, he was very scared. However, he quickly opened up and showed us that he is energetic, has a wonderful personality and a whole lot of character. We actually had to use his intake photo for his profile since he will not sit still now that he’s comfortable. He’s not shy at all and will quickly hop into your lap. He does well with other dogs and we feel that with his temperament, he would do well with kids. Consider this little guy when making an addition to your family.
Jasper had a rough start to life and found himself on the euthanasia list at another shelter. Not only had he never known a loving home due to the abusive situation that he came out of, he was confused and afraid when everything he had ever known was taken away. We took Jasper in & a local trainer stepped up to work with him. Jasper even made friends with another adoptable dog of ours. He is still learning his manners and working to prepare himself for the new life that awaits him – he just needs to find the family that he so deserves. Jasper would like to find a home that consists of adults or teenagers and he would love a fenced-in yard where he can play.
Peanut is an excitable little boy who is always happy to see his human visitors. He’s playful, silly and very generous with kisses. A home with only adults or teenagers where he can be the only pup would be best for Peanut. He is still a puppy and could use some training and guidance as he learns how to be a good dog. He would make an excellent addition to a family who understands that.
As handsome as a prince and as sweet as cherry pie, Toto is a man that can promise endless love and loyalty to his future family.

Polite, outgoing, loving, gentle and charismatic – how could anyone not want to give this angel all that he deserves in life?
My name is Gus! I’m your typical English Bulldog; hefty, kind, courageous and silly. I came to the shelter because my owner became too ill to care for themselves, let alone a dog. I’m hoping to find an adult home where I can be the only pet. I would love to have someone to play tug of war with and to catch some z’s next to. If you’re looking for a goofy best friend to keep you entertained, you’ve just found the perfect match!
Beautiful Bella is looking for a foster or better yet a forever home! Bella has been a student in the Pawsitive Direction Program – LARC 501c3 in Loxahatchee to work on training for the past few months. She will graduate soon fully obedience trained, AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) ready, and/or Bachelor’s/Master’s/PhD in Canine Life and Social Skills (CLASS) ready.
Bella is a 5 year old pit bull mix, with a beautiful tri-color coat and expressive eyes. Her new family should be ready for a house/kennel trained, wiggly medium-energy pup who promises endless love and devotion to her people. Since she does have a prey drive, she needs a home as the only pup with no small furry or feathered animals. She’s smart, focused and would be excellent at a sport or spending time on a lure course. Bella would do well with kids; she lived with a special needs little boy at one point and did amazing!

They call me Lola Bananas and I’m the cutest 100 pound baby you’ll ever meet! Overall, I’m pretty calm, but I like to be silly and playful at times.
Once I get to know you, I’ll probably try to fit myself into your lap. Soaking up affection is what I do best. I also enjoy going on walks and I behave nicely on leash. I had a loving home but I just could not get along with their other dog – so I’m hoping someone with an empty nest will take me in. Consider adding loads of love and loyalty to your family by applying to adopt me today!
Weighing in at a long and low 37 pounds, Bonnie is special not only in looks, but in heart too. You wouldn’t guess that this extremely sweet, affectionate & happy little girl was originally rescued from life as a pregnant stray. She is very high strung and playful. Bonnie asks that we allow her to meet other dogs before she can commit to living with them. This gorgeous girl can promise endless love to her forever family and she hopes to find just that very soon.
Elmer is the epitome of cute. He is a little shy at first but warms up very quickly. He tends to smile when he is nervous. This sweet boy was found as a stray so we are still getting to know his personality and likes/dislikes. He is definitely a dog that wants to be held by his person at all times. Elmer loves to cuddle and would love to find an adult family that will make a spot on the couch for him!
My name is Freckles. I’m a gorgeous seven year old Australian cattle dog who would make an excellent friend and running partner. I enjoy chasing after toys – frisbees, tennis balls, you name it! I could shed a few pounds – but that won’t be too hard since I’ve got that cattle dog drive to be on the move! I would make an amazing addition to any family because I’m great with other dogs, cats, and kids! A fenced-in yard would be preferred so I can run around and play in between walks.
I might be a cute 20 pounds of scruff, but I like to be on the move! I’m Libby, and I’m ready to be someone’s new best friend. I like other dogs and even kids, but older kids would be best since I have a tendency to slip out of open doors. My loving family realized that they couldn’t meet my exercise needs or keep me safe. My energy and drive to be busy means that I have an endless supply of FUN to offer to my future family. I would be so happy to find a home with a secure fenced-in yard of my own, along with a family that can commit to keeping me stimulated. Consider me if you like be active and have fun!
Ming is a quiet 10 year old Chow Chow in search of a loving forever home and a nap-time buddy. Sadly, her owners could no longer care for themselves, let alone care for her. She hopes to find someone special that loves her dearly once again. Although she definitely loves her walks, Ming would enjoy a peaceful retirement where she has a cozy place to relax – and someone to share it with.
Blake is a 6 year old pit bull mix. He is currently residing in a foster home where he is thriving. Please ask about scheduling a time to meet him! Blake is in search of an adult home with a fenced-in yard where he can be the only pet.
Blake’s foster mom writes…
If you didn’t know this guys past, you would think that he was the perfect dog! He is so calm and loving in my shop outside of the shelter that was a crazy environment for him.
He sits, stays, places, waits for his food and has learned to walk perfectly on a leash. The boxer in him means he likes multiple short walks where he has time to take in all the smells! We take 3 walks a day and it helps him with his energy level tremendously. He loves to ride in the car with the wind on his face, smelling the world as we drive by!
At my shop, nothing I do bothers him. He will come to see what I’m working on and offer assistance…lol….but if I dont need his help, he lies happily on his bed or puts himself in his crate for a nap! He adores his nylabone that his friend Alexis got him and just loves to sit with me while he happily chews away!
Throughout the day we have an affirmation sessions where I tell him “You are beautiful! You are worth life! You are smart and you are calm and kind. You will find a loving peaceful home after you have healed mind, body, and spirit. You are a great friend!”
Please keep him in your prayers. To return to the shelter would set him back so far! I have faith that some kind person will find him!!!
My name is Meeka. I’m a beautiful 3 year old Australian Cattle Dog who lost my home when my owner had a baby. I am fairly calm and gentle indoors, but as soon as I get outside, I am ready for action! I love to chase just about anything that you can throw (sticks, tennis balls, ropes). Since I will require a lot of safe off-leash play, I’m looking for a home with a fenced-in yard. I hope that the right person will read this and want to make me their new baby!
I’m Mimi, a 10 year old Boxer/Beagle mix. Yeah, I’m a senior girl, but I like to be on the move! I’ve got energy and love to run around as if I’m a young pup. Having time to exercise is important to me, whether it is through several daily walks or a fenced-in yard. Swimming is my absolute favorite activity! I know basic commands such as sit and stay. I’m also housebroken. I do need a very special person and that is probably why I’ve been waiting for so long. It takes me awhile to get used to people, and most people aren’t willing to wait. I hope that one day, someone will really try for me. If that person volunteered to spend time with me regularly, it would give me the time that I need to open up to them prior to going home. I would do best as the only pet in the home. I have potential, and I deserve to spend my golden years with a family to call my own.
I’m Sadie, a 10 year old lab/shepherd mix, let’s get to know each other. I’m an absolute doll once you get to know me. I am a goofy girl who will wiggle and wag at the sight of a leash; I LOVE walks! I’m not only beautiful, I’m smart too. I know my basic commands and will gladly give you my paw. I need a living situation that can be difficult to find. I would do best as the only pet in a home with one adult person. The reason is, once I find a person of my own, I can be very protective of that person. I promise to make up for it with endless love, loyalty and lots of kisses.
Chowder here! I’m a handsome 10 year old lab mix looking for a quiet adult home. I enjoy a relaxing stroll on a leash here or there, but for the most part I’m hoping to be the side kick to another couch potato, like myself. I am a little picky when it comes to other dogs, so if you have one, I’d have to meet them first. I do enjoy joining my sister, Sadie, on walks. If you think you could provide me with a home and a cozy spot to sleep in, please consider meeting and loving a guy like me.
Mia is a petite bundle of love, waiting for a lucky lap to bask in. She’s a quiet, calm and collected girl for the most part, but will indulge in some play time every now and then. Mia would make the perfect little companion for someone who loves to just cuddle and take a short walk on occasion! A quiet adult home would be paradise for her. She does well with cats but would be happiest if she didn’t have to share her human with another dog – she wants ALL of the attention!
I’m Rocky, a 4 year old boxer mix! I can be a little picky about which people I will open my heart up to, but those who know me describe me as a charming, smart guy. I can open doors, and I will require a fenced-in yard where I can play in between our long walks. I need an active adult family as the only pet because I won’t want to share you with anyone else. I’d prefer a family with boxer experience if possible; I need someone who understands me.
Beautiful Dre could be your newest family member! This beautiful boy knows his basic commands and loves to play fetch! Dre dreams of having a fenced-in yard all to himself some day. He’s got a lot of pep in his step for an older guy but his energy isn’t overwhelming. Dre’s ideal home would be one where he can be a solo pup with adults or older kids. Stop by the shelter to meet this sweet man!
