Jerry has been with us for a few months now with minimal interest unfortunately. We do know that Jerry lived in a home with a young boy who he loved very much. The family had to move and were unable to take Jerry with them. Some things to know about Jerry: ” Jerry has lived successfully with young children. “He will need to be the only dog in the home.” With distance from other dogs he is easy to walk on leash. Very affectionate boy “Was house trained in last home.” Please visit our foster page  to learn more and fill out an application.

  • A Little About Me: I am a little red piggy that is just as adorable in person as I am in my picture. I just smile everywhere I go, I am so such a happy guy I have happy tail. If you don’t know what happy tail is, it is when you just can’t stop wagging and your tail hits the walls causing cracks in the tail and bleeding. That means I literally can’t stop wagging so if a happy dog is what you are looking for than that is me! It doesn’t get more simple than that, I might be one of the happiest dogs in the shelter!

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested in to a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
