Mamacita
Hound / Catahoula Leopard Dog mix
Adult Female
Hello! I'm Momacita and hopefully I'm the one you've been looking for. You've probably guessed my name has something to do with babies. Well, you are right. When I was taken to the Shelter, I arrived with 7 little babies. My babies have all been gone for a while and I've been spayed. Here I sit in a loving foster home, just waiting for a family to make me their own. Let me share some more interesting details about myself. I am a black and white female Hound mix, born around January 6, 2013, and I weigh about 45 pounds. My foster mom tells me I am probably a catahoula/border collie/heeler mix. What a great combination! Now, you don't see that one every day -- so I am surely special. Whatever it is that I am, my foster mom says it's definitely a herding breed. I'm good with other dogs, love kids, and I don't mind the cat too awful much. They keep telling me I'm a Good Girl 'cause I listen well and am just an all around good dog. I love rides and do good in a car, walk good on a leash, and go into my crate on command with no coaxing. Oh, did I mention I love to follow the 4-wheeler wherever it goes. I'm spayed, house trained, and up-to-date on my shots. I would do good with any family, but would prefer one that has some activity going on. I'm very calm and great with kids. I like to stay busy -- so being on a farm would be great -- I'm looking for a job! I'm not a barker, don't chew and I don't show any aggression at all. I'm pretty much the real deal of a great dog to adopt in a single package. I hope you're as anxious to meet me as I am to meet you. Please call the Shelter so we can schedule a meeting with my foster mom. I'd love for you to make your home my forever home. Hope to see you soon! Doggie Hugs and Kisses -- Momacita

Joker
American Bulldog / mix
Young Male
Hi, my name is Joker. I’m a handsome gray and white American Bulldog mix (just over one year old). I’m quite a hoot; but, I’ve not always been that happy go-lucky fellow. Life wasn’t too kind to me in my earlier days. I was picked up as a stray by a caring person who found me behind the dumpster at a bar. They say I looked like I'd been run over and dragged a ways. There were severe wounds all over my body, my leg was broken, and I couldn’t walk. My weight was down to 30 pounds, but now I’m a healthy 50 pounder. Fortunately, I was taken to the Jackson County Animal Shelter where I was well taken care of and found a loving foster home to heal and grow. Well, I’m glad to say that the bad days are behind me and things are looking up for me. I bet I’ll fit into your lifestyle just perfectly. I’m house trained, good in a crate and good on a leash. Ask me, “Joker, wanna go for a ride?” The answer is, “YES! YES! YES!” I’m always ready to go for a ride. Got your own kids or nieces and nephews? That’s great! Oh my goodness, I just love love love kids and other dogs. I share my foster home with lots of other dogs – and I mean lots! So, I know how to share and socialize very very well. I'm neutered, up-to-date on my vaccinations, plus I’ve been tested for heartworms (Yay! I’m negative – no heartworms!) What more could you ask for? I’m healthy, playful, loving, socialized, and love kids. Remember, I mentioned I share my home with lots of other dogs. Not that I don’t love them, but a few less brothers and sisters would be nice. I’d love to have my own forever home and I can share with another brother or sister. I know you’ll love me if you just come and let me give you some of my wonderful hugs and kisses. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s meet and so you can see how great I am! P.S. My foster mom says, “Believe me,” his name fits his personality - Joker. Come on. Let’s play and "Joker" round!

Domestic Long Hair / mix
Young Female
Hi, my name is Asia. How do you like my "Cool Cat" photo -- pretty cool, huh? There's also a video here where you can see me in action -- check me out. In case you don't recognize it, I'm a Domestic Longhair mix with a beautiful black and cream coat. They tell me I was born sometime around Monday, March 03, 2014, so I'm about a year and half old. Right now I'm in a wonderful foster home, but I really need a forever home of my own so my foster mom can rescue another cat from the Shelter. I'm good with dogs and other cats. My foster mom says I am very well mannered inside and you'll be glad to know I'm litter box trained. I'm also up to date on my shots and will be spayed before I go home with you. Give us a call so you can see for yourself how cool I am!
