Cute and friendly, dressed in ebony with touches of ivory shorthair fur, this medium-size girl is shy to begin with, but given a little time and gentle talk, she’ll cuddle up for some lovin’. Listed as a 2-year-old pit bull mix, Delilah appears to have, perhaps, Feist dog in her DNA. She deserves loving, attentive owner(s) who will give her exercise/play, preferably in a fenced area or on a leash, take her with them on their outings, give her obedience training and, of course, a good forever home. Come meet personable Delilah, ID No. 0351. She’s available at the shelter.



This handsome boy is a lover and a real talker, but once out of his cage he quiets down to enjoy attention, being petted, held, fussed over and loved. All decked out in his magnificent, jet-black American shorthair coat and huge, breathtaking golden eyes, medium-large Colby is a sight to behold. Listed as 2 years old, Colby will make a wonderful pet in a variety of good forever home settings. Once there, he will settle in and be your pet, best friend and confidant. Come visit Colby, ID No. 0359, he’s available at the shelter.
