Oso is an amazing 2-year-old Great Pyrenees–mix male dog. Smart, alert, friendly and a people lover as well as a people pleaser, just begin to describe him. Oso is a trim 67 pounds and displays the almond-shaped, deep-brown eyes of this breed, a beautiful, creamy-white colored coat that will need brushing approximately once a week.  Although Oso is not a fan of walking on a leash, he’s young and willing to learn. He would do best in a home with land or a large fenced in area for him to run and play. Oso is the perfect dog for a growing family and he is available through Saturday at the shelter.


Meet Boots, our 2-year-old, pewter-gray and pristine white, bicolor male. His white boots aren’t made for walking, they’re made for holding — he loves to be held, stroked and cuddled. The bridge of his nose has a dusting of powdered sugar to show everyone just how sweet he is. His huge, golden eyes are not only riveting, they’re mesmerizing. His favorite pastime is exploring his surroundings to satisfy his curious nature. Boots will be a wonderful companion for a loving family, and he is available through Saturday at the shelter.
