Dogs Seek Owners Who Will Give Them a Forever Home
The Roice-Hurst Humane Society takes excellent care of the animals at the shelter. But, what these dogs really want and need is someone who will give them a forever home.
These pups are ready for adoption and need just the right person who will love them for who they are now and are willing to help them teach them and provide a life full of comfort, companionship and love.
Poor Rainey is beginning to wonder why no one wants to adopt her. Sure, she's a bit old, and bigger than a lot of people might want, but she thinks that her size allows her to love just that much more.
Rainey is a large (81 pound) spayed female. She's very cautious and fearful of children. Her dream home is a calm adult home, possibly with another dog but no cats.
She's like a lot of mature humans, able to enjoy activities but doesn't always need to be on the go like those young pups.
Rainey is keen on companionship and enjoys walks as well as quiet time. Just being around and part of a human family is her dream.
Astro is a large (87 pounds) neutered male who loves to play fetch. and will drop it when asked.
He loves being outdoors and has the energy and stamina to do almost anything you can do if you're outdoor enthusiast, too.
Astro can be fearful around new people, but once he gets to know you, he'll enjoy being with you no matter what you're doing.
He's probably a bit too rowdy for small children just because he's so big. But bigger active kids will probably find him fun to have around to play with.
Astro's not a cat or small animal lover, but he may find a family with a bigger active dog perfectly to his liking.
Sage is a medium sized (35 pounds) female who's very timid, but completely charming.
She's active, but really need an owner who is patient, quiet and willing to work with her to overcome shyness and insecurity.
Sage is very sensitive to touch so a home with children is not advised right now. She might warm up to another dog if they're compatible, so an introduction before taking her home is a must.
Partly because of the instincts of her breed, cats and other small animals may be a risk. The staff at Roice-Hurst haven't been able to determine how much of a hunter she is.
Once she's comfortable with a new owner and surroundings, Sage would probably do extremely well with some training classes to help her gain confidence in herself.
