Mac: Manchester Terrier/All American Dog aged 9 years 9 months

You would never believe this guy is 9 years old. I don't think I've ever seen him lying down. He is very smart. Always watching the action. He's been with us too long, but the up side is he has learned a lot, and improved his manners. He takes commands, "Go to your bed" and of course "sit". He absolutely loves his walks. In the play yard he keeps himself busy, but suddenly will turn, run to you and put paws on lap with face upturned and a huge smile.

Scooby: American Staffordshire Terrier/Crossbreed Dog aged 3 years 6 months

No cats, No Dogs, Trained on Harness.
Harness to go home, with instructions on how to use.

Scooby is a fantastic dog with great looks and a bright mind to boot. He loves riding in the car and behaves well while cruising with the breeze in his face. He is all muscles but really is lap dog if you give him the opportunity to be one. Scooby really enjoys to sit next to his human companion. Around the house he is very polite and if he is kept calm, he would be the best couch potato. Scooby is working on controlling his excitement level, so playing tug of war with him is a bit too much stimulation for him still. He would be best suited to find a forever home consisting of adults to avoid the excitement of small children and other pets. He would love for his new parents to continue his training and practice calm socialization. Scooby is very smart and can tend to get bored when he is by himself, so he enjoys being entertained with stuffed Kongs, puzzle toys and durable chew toys. Scooby is very food motivated and has learned new tricks quickly. He currently knows "sit, down, stay, leave it, watch me, shake and settle." He walks well on a leash and he wears his harness during training. His harness will accompany him to his forever home. Scooby would love for you to come and meet him today so he can show off both his beauty and his brains!

Monroe: American Bulldog/All American Dog aged 1 year 2 months

Cooper: Great Pyrenees/Border Collie Dog aged 7 years 7 months

If you think this is a beautiful dog-wait till you see him in person. Cooper is beautiful, graceful and yes, big. If you aren't familiar with the Great Pyrenees breed, do a little research and you can see that Cooper got his stature and size from there. He is strong but doesn't flaunt it. He walks very well on a leash and loves his walks-and doesn't mind reminding you of that by trying to lead you to the door. Even though Cooper is a large dog, he doesn't really require a big house or fenced yard. At almost 8 he is happy with walks exploring the neighborhood and saying hello to the admiring public that all want to rub on his coat. Cooper is a polite house guest as he has been used to living in a home and has also stayed for short periods with volunteers in their homes. He is totally house trained. He eats his own food and doesn't look to his humans for hand-outs. He is comfortable on a rug or the cool tile floor but enjoys a softer bed if provided. He is quiet in the house and on his walks. And he enjoys his human companions by following them around the house and then making himself comfortable in the closest proximity to where they have most recently landed. Cooper may want to be the only dog in the home. If you have a dog, you would want them to meet and make sure that they get along. So if you are a single person or a couple that needs someone to remind you to get off that couch and "go for a walk," and make you smile while he's doing it, come meet Cooper. He will be the big, beautiful boy politely looking at you from his run and hoping you have a leash nearby. Cooper is in Canine Club House at the Gulf Coast Humane Society.

Furby, an adorable Shih Tzu, has been in foster for the past three weeks and has proved at he is the perfect "fur baby" as his name hints towards. When he first came in he was in rough shape but a little love and TLC has done him well. He is as cute as could be and he has a fun loving personality to match. His foster mom says that he is well mannered, is accident free, walks well on a leash, (with the assistance of his curly cue tail that likes to wrap around the leash) and he is friendly with other dogs he encounters while he is out. Inside he is a ham, bounding about as if each sound signifies a new adventure. He is also a professional at giving you his sweet puppy eyes, imploring for belly rubs. His foster mom has grown quite attached to Furby and knows that any person or family looking to add a four legged companion would be lucky to adopt him.

Frenchie: Hound/All American Dog aged 3 years 0 months

Frenchie is a young girl that shows both spunk and a bit of reserve. She is always happy to go out for a walk with her human companion. She has vigor and may pull a bit in the beginning, but she always checks in with her handler after a few paces and returns to their side. She may not be a kisser but she has quite a nose and she likes to give you gentle taps with it. Talking about distinguishing features, Frenchie also has some amazing ears! She loves to have them rubbed. Another thing she loves are her toys, stuffed and squeaky rubber ones alike. She always has a mini collection on her bed and sometimes she doesn't want to part with one when it is time to go far a walk. Thankfully there isn't a rule against toys getting some excercise too. Also on her "love list" are treats...and with that nose, she usually knows when you have some in your pocket. If you would also like to be added to Frenchie's "love list," please come by to meet her today!

Hi my name is Clayton and I am a happy go lucky kind of guy. I absolutley love to go out and explore all the world has to offer, particularly in the "scents" department. When out on a walk I am usually nose down picking up all the smells that I can, but not while pulling you along. In the play yard I do continue to sniff but also love to chase balls. I will need a little motivation if you want me to start fetching them though. I can also entertain you by my silly running antics. I like to beleive that I am showing off a bit. I get up to a good speed and like to whiz by you, stopping for some attention after every couple of passes. I can make quick turns but I don't quite have the finesse of a gazelle, but hey, I am just a dog. Okay, not just a dog, a special dog, one that has lots of love to offer and many years of great companionship ahead if me. If you have been looking for a special dog, I may be your match. I would love to meet you today!
