Robert – Roberto

Oh boy Roberto! You so handsome!

Hi 😁 my name is Robert, and I am 9 years old! Don’t let my age steer you away though, I LOVE going for walks and am well mannered while on the leash. I weigh about 65 pounds and get along just fine with female dogs and other altered males.
My dream family will give me lots of love and petting and take me out to enjoy the great outdoors! My dream bed is somewhere close to where my new family will be sleeping so that I can cuddle up with them.
Do you like going for car rides?? Me too! I am extremely good in the car and only want to lay down with my head in your lap and you scratching my ears. Come down and meet me so we can build our new life together!

Robert’s adoption fee has been sponsored!

Molly

Have you ever heard that a tank just goes and goes and goes? Well I’m Molly, a bit of a tank myself, with some go, go, go in me. I like to go for walks (but not too far, I worked hard to build this figure–I weigh 74lbs)! I like to go on car rides! Take me on a road trip and lets go on an adventure! I’m 8 years old and hear that that’s the thing to do in retirement.
I saved the best for last: I would like to GO HOME! So come out and spend a little time with me and we can create some new thing that we like to go do together!

Pinniped

Hi, I’m Cooper! I’m a 5 year old boy who weighs 90lbs (would love to get into shape, though!). Do you like chicken? ME TOO! In fact, my love of chickens sometimes takes over my brain, so I’m looking for a home without chickens, birds, cats, or any other little smelly things that taste good. I am socialized with other dogs and would do best with other well-mannered dogs. I was living as an outdoor dog, so I am adjusting to the inside life–I like it so far! So far, people are really fun to play with and walks on a leash are a good opportunity to get some much needed exercise. I’m not a fan of being restrained and all the up close and personal hands-on stuff is new to me, so I need someone to take it slow. I have great manners already with people: I don’t jump up and meet people very politely. I love to be pet and have my butt scratched!!!!

Sirloin

Hi friends, I’m Sirloin! I’m about 3 years old and weigh 67lbs. I’m a strikingly handsome guy, I know, but take some time to get to know my personality, please! My background is a bit of a mystery, since I came in as a stray, but here at the shelter, I have been very social with new people and love to make new friends. I have gotten along with some dogs, but it depends on the dog–I would do better in a home without cats or small dogs. I’m a shepherd through and through and have an amazing drive.
I’m smart and active and need some outlets for my mental and physical energy. I also show some signs of anxiety and would be better off with an experienced handler. I’m eager to please and looking for guidance, so please give me some! I’m at the vet today getting neutered, but will be available to meet visitors tomorrow.

Cezar

All hail! Cezar! Cezar is a 6 year old boy who weighs in at 97lbs. But what breed is he? We identify this big boy as a Great American Shelter Dog! He looks like a cattle dog- but on the ginormous side; his size suggest big lab or german shepherd; he is quite the puzzle. But what ever his breed, Cezar is quick to make friends and will lean right into your legs for a hug. He has nice manners, including on a leash. Cezar has lived with cats, but isn’t great with other dogs. He’s ready to find love!

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. Some 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!

Puppies: Please understand they are puppies; not potty trained; not good or bad with kids, dogs, cats. They are pliable puppies ready for you to imprint good manners, social skills, and training. You are encouraged to follow up with training after they are finished with shot series and or at the direction of your veterinarian. A happy healthy well socialized puppy is a happy family! You may be asked to make a refundable deposit for spay/neutering. Inquire at the Shelter.
General Adoption Fees for Dog: Adult dogs and puppies- $125, Senior dogs 7 and over $50. Veterans are half price / $62.50 with presentation of government issued VA ID. For Josephine County fee includes first year licensing. Please visit the shelter or if need special arrangements for meet and greet please email me. If you have a dog- encourage you to bring also. Staff may be unable to answer calls right away, so you may contact me via email if you cannot get to shelter right away! You are encouraged to make your best effort to go during normal business hours.

Note: Often times we are asked ‘what about cats’?’ Please be advised that we cannot guarantee a dog’s behavior with a cat; sometimes the dog is fine with a cat- but cat not so happy about his canine intruder! If we know emphatically that a dog could take issue with a cat, livestock or chickens- will be stated in body of biography! Shelter Friends editor is not an employee of the Josephine County Animal Shelter. The editor is a member of Shelter Friends Josephine County an all volunteer not for profit Charitable organization supporting the animals of the Josephine County Animal Shelter.

You should make every effort to apply on line, visit shelter or call 541 474-5458 or if you cannot reach- raleigh1952@yahoo.com or raleigh@savethewhiskers.org.

Joe Joe

I’m Joe Joe! I’m a 1 year old boy who weighs 59lb presumed Pit Mix- maybe some cattle dog in there,- and am on the lookout for a new family. I’m very wiggly, sweet, and active! I have met some female dogs politely, but can be a bit dominant so would do best with a tolerant female. I am not a fan of male dogs. Human friends are my favorite and I do not have a shy bone in my body. You know what goes great with Joe Joes? Chicken strips! Will you be my chicken strip??

Joe Joe has what is referred to as “Happy Tail”- which is an oxymoron- because it is really a “Sad Tail”. Shelter Friends will follow up at the direction of approved veterinarian to treat his “happy tail” which could just entail proper bandaging or – the extreme treatment of partial amputation if proper bandaging doesn’t take care of the problem. What is “Happy Tail”? It is when all that tail wagging happy injures the tip of the tail- and now you have a tip of tail paintbrush splattering blood- . That is ok if it is just on a canvass as Dog Art-, but unfortunately- that splatter is alarming on your white walls, but more importantly is the concern of prolonged damage and subsequent infection.  An appointment will be scheduled for treatment. But don’t let this stop you from meeting or adopting Joe Joe in the meantime.

Available at the Josephine County Animal Shelter, 1420 Brookside Blvd. 1.5 miles off I-5. in Merlin. Oregon. hours: Monday -Friday 10-4:30pm Saturday 10-4pm.

Dante

Meet Dante the Bold! Dante is a young (about 1 year old) male who weighs 54lbs. Dante is outgoing and confident. He can be very vocal and turns into a wiggle butt when meeting new friends. He is very dog selective–some are great playmates, others are a no-go. He’s lived with young kids and is friendly with them.

Spud – Muffin

Big boy Spud Muffin is looking for love! Spud is about 1 year old and weighs 70lbs. He’s an active guy who is looking for companionship. Could you be his new best friend? Spud may be able to get used to living with a female dog, but does not do well with male dogs. Spud has a big personality and is certainly not shy at all. He’ll be available after his neuter 1/31.
