Meet Cody!

This handsome, very sweet, big boy has proven himself to be a wonderful, friendly dog at the shelter.

Cody is a pedigree Akbash, a breed superior at livestock guarding and commonly used in Idaho to protect herds of sheep and goats. The Akbash breed instincts have been well preserved. Accordingly, in conjunction with their job, they tend to be aggressive toward other dogs and very protective of their territory.

That said, Cody has surprised us all... he is very good with other dogs at the shelter and he would rather play with them than scare them off! He loves people, and enjoys attention. We are not certain how protective he would become once in a home, but given his observed demeanor at the shelter, he certainly seems to fit the role of a good family companion. Cody is able to scale 8 ft. fences, and will need a home where he is not left in a yard all day

We found Cody through the Animal Shelter of Wood River Valley in Hailey, Idaho.

Meet Dude!

This big boy is 10 years old and just a big teddy bear!

Dude came to recue when his owners moved and they could not take him. Dude is housetrained, good with dogs, cats, kids - he is a typical Golden, in that he just wants to be where you are. He is kind of funny looking right now.....his coat is very thin and he is overweight (112 lbs!)

Dude's thyroid is on the low end of normal, but his rescuers feel he has had some allergy issues. Dude is well mannered and obedient. He is used to hanging out in the house. He cannot do stairs very well - we were told that his hips have not been the best, even when he was young. This boy will make a wonderful friend and companion. He would love to go for walks around the neighborhood, but would probably not tolerate long walks or hikes too well.

We found Dude through Companion Golden Retriever Rescue in West Jordan, Utah.

Meet Max!

When Max's owner had to move to the city, he brought Max to the shelter. Max is an all around good boy. Still a young dog, he has lots of energy and is a wonderful, bright and exuberant companion.

A couch potato lifestyle is not suitable for Max he needs to partake in daily mental and physical activities. Max is good with other dogs and quite playful with them. He loves to go for hikes, is great off leash, and would excel in agility or obedience classes. Max needs his obedience training reinforced, but he is such a smart dog, he should be easy to teach and a pleasure to work with.

Meet Eli!

Eli was found at local schoolhouse. He was not wearing a collar or any form of ID. His rescuers are estimating he is about four years old.

He looks to have a minor blemish on his left eye and there is possibly a cataract forming. He also has a good sized skin tag between his eyes, but it's only on the surface so it does not seem to be bothering him in any way.

He is friendly and his rescuers have tested him with other dogs and he did just fine. He was obviously someones pet because he looks very well cared for and is already neutered.

He greats along with kids ages 5 and up. He grumbles very little now when he has to share the water bowl or the couch with another dog. He is learning that shareing is not so bad.

It is great to see him initiating play with other male dogs and sleeping on the couch with two other male Weims. He is making progress. Buck is not cat or small dog friendly.

She goes outside and explores, then comes right back up the steps and into the house. She is housebroken.

Dolly was turned in at a shelter as a stray, so we have no idea of her age. She was suffering from a horrible skin infection and was mostly bald, but is doing very well now. She gets along fine with other dogs, loves a dog bed, and really is not much trouble at all. She seems to particularly love men.

Meet Archie!

Say hello to two-year-old Archie!

He's a pleasant fellow whose family hit on hard times (all too common an occurrence these days). Archie is a roughcoat Saint who is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm-negative.

He appears to enjoy the company of children, and he's friendly with most other dogs. He's only been in rescue a short time but has already learned where the treat jar is. He knows a few commands and does well on leash.

Archie would like to be part of a family again. He misses having someone with whom to watch TV or hang out in the backyard. He's a pretty mellow guy who won't mind chilling out while his humans are at work or school. You sure won't need to look into male enhancement products with this dude, BOL! Though preference will be given to the applicant with a fenced yard, consideration will be given to someone willing to walk him on-leash and not leave him outdoors unattended.

We found Archie through New England Saint Rescue in Sudbury, Massachusetts.

Meet Sassy!

This is Sassy! She is a medium size adult dog who is on 'Weight Watchers'. She's a good gal and would be a welcome addition for a loving family. Sassy has been in rescue for several years.

If properley introduced to other dogs she is fine with them. She is very happy just watching her caregiver taking care of things, and she is also happy just wandering around, sniffing at things.

Sassy is 10-11 years old. She is friendly - but aloof. She is not a dog that begs for your attention and would be happy to lie on a couch somewhere and watch the world go by.

Although she is welcome at her rescue forever - they do hope she does not have to stay the rest of her days in the Shelter! Thank you for considering her!!!

We found Sassy through Charley's Strays in Clinton, Maine.

Meet Sweetie!

A very wonderful Critter Cavalry foster in Tennessee named Susan got an SOS call one day about an abandoned dog and a cat that had been left in a house that was empty and people had moved away, leaving them with no food or water.

She went to this horrible house and pulled them out of the wreckage through a window and took them home. The cat didn't make it. The American Bulldog/Boston Terrier mix did. She named her Sweetie.

At about 5 years old and weighing a solid 55 lbs. Sweetie is an interesting dog with a very deep soul. Kind of a sadness about her when you first meet her. But there is still a flicker of hope for happiness dancing in her eyes. Especially when she feels she will be getting your attention.

We found Sweetie through Critter Cavalry Rescue New England in Coventry, Rhode Island.

Meet Clover!

Clover is a Beagle/Husky mix weighing around 40. lbs. She seems to get along fine with all her foster dog friends.
