My name is Dexter (Dexy for short) and I’m looking for my fur-ever home! I’m neutered, housetrained and good with other dogs.

I love to get my belly rubbed; I’ll even roll over on my back to ask you for one! I hope you like kisses because I love to give kisses. I even won a kissing contest before! When I'm not giving kisses or getting my belly rubbed, I love to snuggle.

While I've very friendly and sweet, I need to be in a home with kids over 16 due to some resource guarding issues I have. However, I did have obedience training and passed with flying colors!

Arlo wants to be YOUR Valentine. At about 2 years old, Arlo is a charismatic and silly young man. He loves attention and long naps. We think Arlo is quite unique & has the most soulful eyes! It is as though he can speak to you with those eyes. Arlo gets along well with all of the cats at the Castle, so a home with other cats is fine. We are unsure of how he is with dogs. Arlo's adoption fee is waived for the month of February.

Drema April Pet of the Month 1




Sandy is a sweet 7 year old Chihuahua mix who'd love to have a furever home. She just received a clean bill of health, is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. She is a total sweetheart who loves attention and will happily sit in your lap for as long as you'll let her. What she'd like most of all is a family to love her! Great with children of all ages, but would do best in a home with older children who can be gentle with her. Could that family be yours? She certainly hopes so!
