Magpie came to the shelter as a stray, and was very scared when she first arrived. With some time, baby talk, and treats Magpie learned to trust the staff. She has since come out of her shell and is a very silly girl! She does know sit, but you have to get her tail to stop wagging long enough for her to do so! She is a “velcro” pup with her people and wants to be wherever you are! Magpie loves to play in the outside play yard! She especially likes to play “keep away” which she thinks is great fun, however due to this we are requiring her potential home to have a fenced in yard so that Magpie has a safe area to run and have fun! Magpie is still on the shy side with new people, so potential adopters will need to meet with her several times to establish a relationship with her before she goes home with them. Due to no past history, an age restriction for children in the home may apply, so please discuss this with shelter staff. Could Magpie be the pup for you?  
Chance came into the shelter as a stray and we think he is about 10 months old. This guy weighs in at 56 pounds and is still growing. We think he might have Great Dane in him. Chance can be shy at first with new people, but with treats and encouragement he does gain confidence. He will need someone that can work with him on socialization. Chance is currently in his “awkward” teenage stage where he is all legs and is not quite sure what to do with them or himself! He is still a puppy, but is a rather large one that will need someone that understands the time and the patience that goes into training a young dog. Could you take a chance on Chance?
