This is Jax, a 9 year old Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler mix. Jax is a great dog for an active family. Jax would do well in an environment where he has lots of exercise or a specific job to do. He’s very smart and loyal but needs stimulation. Jax likes to herd and he uses his mouth to pull you somewhere to show you something. Small children would probably not be a good fit but as long as you understand how Jax operates and behaves you will quickly learn Jax is an awesome dog and very very smart. He will require a special home though: he needs to have a single female owner, he does not do well with men. Come to the shelter and meet him and you will see for yourself how awesome Jax is.
I’m Baba, an 8 year old pit bull mix. I’ve called the shelter home since I was a puppy. I’m a really sweet, playful boy who loves to give kisses, but I will need a special home. I will have to be the only pet in an adult home, with a fenced-in yard to call my own. I need a responsible, experienced handler that can keep me away from other animals. I get anxious outside of my room, so I need someone to work with me to help me feel comfortable.
Mimi is an eight year old female Boxer/Beagle Mix. She is very high energy and loves to run around. A fenced-in yard would be a bonus but lots of walks and exercise on a leash could also suffice. Mimi knows basic commands such as sit and stay. She is also house broken. She gets along with other dogs and kids, but likes to bark and chase cats. Mimi likes to swim and play in the pool.
Gabby is a middle-aged girl who would be perfect for someone who would like a challenge. She was found abandoned in Tradition years ago and truly does not like other cats. As one might imagine, a shelter with 120+ other cats is the last place Gabby wants to be. It has been impossible to show her true personality because of her dislike for the other cats around her at the shelter, but we feel that out of the shelter where she is the only cat, she would be quite receptive to living with adults in a calm home. She is not a feral cat but merely a cat who lives in this situation which she does not like.
