Dogs


Rebel

Hi there! I’m Rebel, a 4 yr old boy who weighs 12lbs. I was very shy at first, but now that I am warming up, I have a BIG personality! I am happiest when I am in your lap, but I also love to go on walks. I have lived with other dogs before and would just need a slow intro into a new pack. I’m looking for a quiet home where I can be someone’s faithful companion!

Chloe

Meet Chloe some kind of 25 pound terrier mix.
Hello, I’m Chloe! I’m about 1 year old and weigh 25lbs. I am sweeeeeet as sugar and have the gentlest demeanor. My little tail just wags, wags, wags as I prance around on my tall legs! When you first meet me, you may not see that side; you see, I am very timid with new people–they make me incredibly nervous. I may even growl to let you know that I am scared. But ask staff, and you’ll see how loving I am with people who I get to know! And it doesn’t take long–I just need someone patient who can let me come forward on my terms and not rush me. I am worth the wait, I promise! I may do best in home without small children.

Spot

Meet Spot a presumed border collie lab mix.
Hi! I’m Spot. I’m about 1 and 1/2 years old and weigh 55lbs. I’m a spunky fella with an active drive and a loving heart. I love to exercise–hiking, jogging, walking, exploring–all my favorites. I also enjoy kicking back with a good snuggle once playtime is over. I have gotten along with some dogs, but don’t love all. I have lived with kids before and am friendly, although can be a bit exuberant for the little ones.

Kenna

Hi! I’m Kenna! I’m a 2 year old girl who weighs 69 lbs. I am a social butterfly and will greet you with a wagging tail. It seems like I am always happy–what better way to brighten your day than coming home to me? I have lived with cats and dogs and am friendly with most of both! I have also lived with kids, but did not appreciate their company as much as adults. I’m seeking an adult only home. I have heartworm, which is a treatable condition. Shelter Friends will sponsor the cost of my treatment if my adopter can help keep me on schedule.

This is what you can expect in a snap shot.
Heartworm Treatment Steps

Treatment protocols for heartworms are determined on a case-by-case basis, but most dogs are treated with some variation of the following, taking place over the course of several months:
Begin exercise restriction.
If the dog’s condition is especially severe, appropriate stabilization therapy is necessary.
Begin treatment with oral prednisone and doxycycline to reduce the chances of a bad reaction to the death of heartworms.
Hospitalize the dog for the day and give a heartworm preventative to kill juvenile heartworms in the bloodstream. This is often given in the clinic in case of a reaction. Continue to give heartworm preventatives monthly at home.
Give the first injection of melarsomine to kill adult heartworms. Restrict exercise and closely monitor for side effects for the next 30 days.
Give the second injection of melarsomine 30 days after the first.
Give the third injection of melarsomine one day after the second.
Continue exercise restriction for another six to eight weeks.
Test for microfilariae (juvenile heartworms in the blood stream) three to five months after third melarsomine injection.
Test for adult heartworms and microfilariae approximately six months after the third melarsomine injection.

Tank

Tank, here! Hoping that my new home is just around the corner. I’m about 1 year old and weigh 50lbs. I’m sweet, gentle, and oh so affectionate. I am very polite with meeting other dogs, and have lived with small and large dogs before. If you’re looking for a social boy with good manners, look no further! I make friends with just about everyone I meet and would love to find some new playmates

Bane

Hello! I’m Bane, a presumed English Bull dog mix, a 1 yr old boy who weighs 55lbs. I am the happiest dog you’ll ever meet! I can’t help but wiggle my butt when anyone looks at me. I’m a spunky, active fella looking for a family to help me join the adventures. While I am friendly with dogs, cats, and kids, I need proper introductions to get me going–you see, I tend to rush into things and that kinda rubs some the wrong way, ya know? I am also picky about my cat pals–some I get along with, but others not so much. But with people–I’m batting 1000!!

Oslo

Oslo, here, reporting for duty! 3 year old male who weigh 57lbs. Hoping to find a new family who can keep up! When I am in my kennel, I am calm as can be. I am quiet and patient. When it’s time for playtime, I like to go, go, go!!! Playtime is my FAVORITE and I am looking for someone who can help guide me into how to best play with humans–as I love to wrestle. I am VERY exuberant with other dogs, but if they are tolerant and playful, we could be a match. I’d do best in an adult home.

Cora

Hi, I’m Cora, a 1 yr old girl who is 54lbs. I’m looking for that right someone who can give me a stable forever home. You see, in just my first year of life, this shelter is already my 8th home. I would thrive in a quiet home with experienced folks who can help continue to show me the world! I am very sweet and gentle once I get to know you, but I can be standoffish at first. Sometimes new strangers can spook me. But I am an affectionate lovebug with my companion, and I’m a protector and would be a loyal companion. I’m seeking a home without small children or small animals. Large dogs will require a meet and greet, as I can be picky. Ask staff to meet me and you’ll see why I have stolen their hearts!
Additionally Shelter Friends will pay for 1 one on one training session within 50 miles of Grants Pass.
