If pictures say a thousand words it`s still not enough to describe this adorable mug, Helios. He came to the shelter with a very checkered past, 10 `checkers` to be exact; but since being here, many people have fallen in love with him! Helios himself has a few trust issues, understandably so, and it will take time getting to know him and earn his tail wags and cuddles, but who ever said dating wasn`t fun?He loves long solo walks with his person with an occasional stop to graze on blades of grass. He makes sure to live up to his cow-colored coat!In the home, Helios was once a sweet-loving family dog and has been around kids, men, and women. He enjoys a game of tug-of-war, is non-destructive when left alone in the home, and is House Trained! What more is there to ask for in such a cute, little dude.If you think you`re ready to commit for the long one, ask about Helios and Behavior Team can tell you all about him. -LCPClick here to view Helios`s paperwork.

All we can think when we look at Angus is, `GAH!! How can a dog be this cute?!` That wrinkled face, the smooshy lips, the sneaky side-eye... it`s all too adorable!Angus is one of those dogs who thrives once he has some consistency and guidance. When he first arrived at the shelter, he was so afraid that he would hide under his bed. But after lots of positive interactions, Angus learned that the staff and volunteers were there to help him and take care of him. He definitely has his enthusiastic moments but he calms with appropriate redirection, and focus games are his jam! Angus loves toys and one of his favorite things to do is select a toy from the toy bin and then throw it around in the air. Yippee!Angus is always super excited to make friends. Hey new person, are you my fren? Yes! What about you, mister, you my fren, too? Ok! And that person over there not looking at me, can they also be my fren? Yay! Angus is also very dog social and enjoyed going to play group at the shelter. We think he would love to live with a doggy friend, or go on regular play dates!We know from his time in foster that Angus is house trained and crate trained. He walks nicely on a leash and wants to sniff allllll the things! Angus is still a youngin so he sometimes decides to chew on stuff he is not supposed to, but he trades nicely for a treat or an appropriate toy. Angus would do well in most home environments but we would not recommend young kiddos since he can sometimes get jumpy/mouthy when he is excited.I weigh approximately 57 lbs.
