Meet Tiger, our male, 80-pound, Retriever-Mastiff-mix. His golden-tan coat and handsome face make for a beautiful dog. Tiger is about two years old and he is a friendly boy. Surrendered by his owners because they could no longer care for him, they describe him as a great dog. He gets along well with female dogs and all people, but he needs to be in a home where he is the only male dog; Tiger wants to be the Alpha male. He’s a smart fellow and with a large yard, obedience training and a family that will play and exercise him, Tiger will be all that he can be — a wonderful pet. Tiger is available through Saturday at the shelter.


Cally our Calico wants to be your companion and everything that word implies: chum, cohort, confidant, buddy and friend. This calm, 10-month-old, female wants to please you. In her gentle ways, she loves to play, cuddle, be affectionate and fit your mood. Her shorthair coat is an amazing array of deep calico colors of ebony, deep orange and pristine white. Come visit Cally. She will amaze you with how wonderfully she interacts with you. Cally will be an outstanding pet and she will enhance a good forever home. She is available through Saturday at the shelter.
