Are you ready for a big player! Here you go!  80 pounds of Happy BOY! Needs a good coach! Needs a good playing field! Get your whistle ready and he is ready to learn!
Wonderful Woody is waiting for a home! Woody is big Cattle Dog mix. He is an approximately 3 to 5 year old neutered big boy who is still learning all his manners. What he does already know well is how to LOVE! This fella is very friendly and just gets a little excited when he meets new people and dogs. With patient training and guidance, we have no doubt that Woody will make a great companion. Currently in foster his foster family notes he welcomes home life with gentle enthusiasm. He gets along beautifully with his foster brother – a senior German Shepherd. He has great recall and shows no desire to depart- but rather to stay at your side. He is a devoted well mannered boy eager to please. He isn’t much for balls, or toys- but absolutely loves cardboard! Like the child that delights in a card board box instead of high tech toys- he is so content with his cardboard!
Adopter should have willingness to follow through with good leadership so he can be all he can be!  This big boy has lived on a chain all his life. He came in with his collar imbedded in his neck. A Canine Angel will contribute half of his fee to a Hero will show him all humans are not bad!  Will provide new bed, bag of food and post adoption support. He will do best to be an only dog so he can be the King of his castle- and showered with love and leadership. To take advantage of this opportunity- please contact Raleigh@savethewhiskers.org

It is always nice if you send an inquiry about a specific adoptable guest via email to tell us about you, your family and other pets, your yard, and most importantly, your expectations of your new family member so we can answer your questions appropriately as best as possible.

Please, if you email an inquiry, please understand that these animals are in the shelter for a variety of reasons: Their lives are upside down maybe because owner died, they got lost, were abandoned, owner lost home or had a life event that left their pet in need of a new home. We don’t always know how they will get along with all dogs, all children. They won’t be a perfect family member right away! They will need love, patience, a strong owner who will let them know what is expected of them and what they can expect from their new family. It may take an afternoon or it may take a week or so! But they need homes and families who will bring them back to knowing what family is!
