Notes: Talk about lug head, Tango is as sweet as he is goofy. Weighing in at a whopping 80 pounds...and not knowing it, totally thinks he's a lap dog...Tango will need someone with large dog experience. We are working on leash walking, he likes to jump up and hold the leash in his mouth, we are engaging him with treats and distraction. Tango likes to play outside, he loves chew toys, after good exercise he will crash for a nap. He loves hanging out in the office with everyone and meeting new people. Tango had been adopted and returned, he was too interested in the cats in the home. Tango has now been in the shelter environment too long and is showing reactivity to other dogs. This guy needs out of here ASAP!!! Tango is a sweet boy, we know his people are out there, he needs patience and an active lifestyle. Please call the shelter for more information.

Notes: You bring the burgers and he'll bring the fun! Tonga is a new arrival, this big 115 pound boy is a complete softy. He loves to snuggle, go for walks, play around in the yard, have the occasional snack (off the counter if in reach), and he loves to carry around his stuffed animals. If you've had a mastiff then you know they are big slobbery teddy bears...Tonga is just that. He is heartworm positive so our vet staff will be making a game plan for treatment, this is covered by the shelter. Recently neutered so slow and steady for recovery has not allowed us to have doggie meet and greets just yet. He does seem friendly interested, hopefully later this week. He loves everyone he meets and has been a great office mascot. Unknown behavior with children and cats. 4 years old, Neutered, up-to-date medical, and microchipped

Easy walker, loose leash/non-puller. Ryder likes chewing on toys, he will lay in the yard and keep himself busy with a water bottle or any toy. Ryder gets excited and a little jumpy during play time, he's super excited for you to throw the ball (he hasn't learned to bring it back yet) but he'll get there. He truly loves to hang with people. Sweet boy. *Mild URI, he is on medication. URI (kennel cough) is contagious to other dogs, please speak with your vet if you have a current dog in the home.

Notes: Stella is a recent transfer from DACC, notes from her doggie adventure: PLAYFUL, sweet and up for anything, Stella was a great shelter ambassador for the day. She wants to meet everyone, she's so excited to say "Hi" she does jump. She's a very petite (38 pounds) pup, this girl can get some air, she has serious hops when she jumps and plays with toys. Her zoomies will have you laughing, she loves the large stuffed Chuck It ball. Stella politely shared a sandwich, enjoyed many compliments while laying under a tree and even liked meeting another dog. Rode well in the car, will sit in your lap for a good back scratch or belly rub. This little girl is like TNT with her explosive personality, she really is the happiest dog. *HEARTWORM POSITIVE, our vet team will be making a game plan for treatment, adopter will need to bring her back for this. *Not showing signs of URI, but she was exposed at DACC. She has started medication as a preventative and as the beginning step in heartworm treatment.
