Picture of Butch the dog.

~  Butch  ~

Hi everybody, my name is Butch. I'm a four-year-old, 70-pound Shepherd-Shar-Pei Mix dog. When I first meet people, I'm very shy. Once I open up, I do know how to play and love to do 'fetch'!  I've been approved for households with kids ages 12 and up due to my size and will need to be the only dog in the home. If you want to work with me on training, I already know 'paw' and 'shake'!  I'm hoping to find a forever family that will take their time getting to know me and who will take care of me during my best and more difficult years. Please submit an application for me, today!  My adoption fee is $225.

Hello!  My name is Thunder. I'm a nine-month-old, 42-pound male White and Brown Husky mix dog. I can be a little shy when we first meet, but I'll warm right up once we go for a walk together!  I know 'sit' and am very treat-motivated. Do you have kids at home? Awesome!  I can go to a home that has other cats, dogs and kids ages eight and up. Do you have a big, fenced-in backyard for me? It would be so cool to have a brother or sister doggo too!  I'm hoping to find my forever family before the New Year. Please submit an adoption application for me, today!  My adoption fee is $225.

Hey, I hope you're having a great day!  My name is Lizzie. I'm a really sweet two-year-old, 28-pound female Tricolor Beagle/Rat Terrier Mix dog. Despite my size, I'm pretty strong and have some energy to burn!  I've been approved for kids ages five and up and can get along with other dogs and cats. I know 'sit' and love to play with stuffed toys. I'd make a great family dog!  Especially for a family that wanted to take me on walks, adventures and even trips to the veterinarian when I needed it.

Picture of Decker the dog.

~  Decker  ~

Hey!  My name is Decker. I'm a two-and-a-half-year-old male Tri Color Shepherd Mix dog. You know what that means!  I'm a big, strong and high energy guy who loves to run, play and jump. For this reason, I've been approved for homes with kids ages 12 and up. I know 'sit', 'shake' and 'wait for food'. With my high energy, I could live in a home with cats, but you would need to be cautious since I could probably chase them around. I will need to be the only dog in the household. Please keep in mind I also don't like my feet touched or pinched. Submit an application for me, today!  My adoption fee is $225.

~  Bailey  ~

No one said it was easy being a shelter dog. Hello, my name is Bailey. I am a two-and-a-half-to-three-year-old female Terrier Mix. I'm very timid and need a family who can be just as patient with me. When I'm meeting new people, I shake a lot and don't have the confidence yet to ask for love. Being at the shelter is very new to me and I don't know yet how to play with toys. I've been approved for kids ages 12 and up due to my shyness and can get along with other cats and dogs. Just please make sure we have a slow intro. I'm a very sweet girl who just needs a chance with a loving home. Please submit an application for me, today!  My adoption fee is $225.

Hi!  My name is General. I'm a two-year-old male Brindle Terrier Mix dog. I absolutely LOVE humans!  They know how to play and I love to play with them!  Do you have toys and a big fenced-in yard for me? If you have kids at home, that is ok, but they will have to be ages six and up. I'm going to be on my best behavior in a house that doesn't have other pets. Do you like to go on walks? I love walks too!  I'd be a great hiking dog for someone who would keep me on a harness and leash. I can't wait to come to my forever home with you!  Submit an application, today. My adoption fee is $225.

Hey everybody!  My name is Velma. No - I don't have a catchphrase. Why does everyone keep asking me that? I'm a nine-month-old, 33-pound female Tricolor Hound Mix dog. When it comes to energy, I have some to spare, but I use it for good!  I love to play and really like attention from people. I've been approved for households with kids ages eight and up and get along very well with other dogs. I can't go to a home with cats. I'm a very friendly, high energy gal who does need some training, but with consistency, routine and some love, I could fit into your family in no time!  Please submit an application for me, today.

Hey - it's me, Daphne!  How are you? I'm doing just swell myself. I'm a nine-month-old, 35-pound female Brown Hound Mix dog!  I'm a really sweet and affectionate girl who has been approved for households with kids five years of age or older. If you have cats, I'm pretty scared of them, but could get along!  I'm a bit nervous and timid around people, but warm up really quickly. I can't go to a home with other dogs, but if you're there, I'd love that. Being a dog named Daphne is no joke. It's hard out here for a little lady like me!  If you have a home with a fenced-in backyard, I'd jump for joy. Please submit an application for me, today!  My adoption fee is $225.

~  Ace  ~

Hello!  My name is Ace. I am a one-year-old male Brindle and White Plott Mix dog. I know 'sit, 'shake' and 'down'!  That means I'm a good boy. I love toys and am even working on how to play 'fetch'!  When it comes to kids, any in the house have to be eight years of age or older. I'm actually pretty scared of cats, but that doesn't mean I can't learn to share a house with one. When it comes to dogs, I'll have to be the only one in the household!  If you think I could be a fit in your family, please submit an application, today. My adoption fee is $225.

What's up? I'm Arctic the one-and-a-half-year-old male White husky Mix dog!  I'm a super friendly, super high energy dog who loves people!  I might need a little training, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't fit perfectly into your family. When it comes to your household, kids have to be ages eight years of age or older. I am a bit shy around other cats and dogs, but could get along with them after I warm up to them. I don't know any tricks - yet - but I could learn!  I'm very food motivated so some treats could work wonders. Don't leave me alone for the holidays and submit an application for me, today!  My adoption fee is $225.

~  Fresh Prince  ~

Hello!  My name is Fresh Prince. I'm a one-year-old male blue and white Pit mix dog. If there was one, I'd be the Prince of B-N!  Speaking of Bloomington-Normal, I don't think there's a better place I could call home. It's just a question of where I'll end up!  Uptown Normal is so charming, but downtown Bloomington has a lot of beautiful architecture. I can't lie, I'd love a fenced-in backyard in one of those cute suburbs around the area too!  Thinking of adopting me? I've been approved for a household with kids 18+ and could get along with another dog, but no cats. I'm very high energy and need some training to help teach me some manners. Submit an application for me, today!  My adoption fee is $225.

Hey there!  Odin here and I am a two-and-a-half-year-old male Black and White Lab Mix dog. Do you like Labrador dogs as much as I love people? I'm a friendly guy, but I need to be the only pet in the household and any kids have to be 12 years of age or older. When it comes to manners, I just need some training and patience!  I have a lot of love to give and am hoping I can meet a true dog lover who has a passion for helping teach a silly ol' dog like me.

Hi, I'm Emma!  I'm a six-month-old female Black Labrador puppy. I can get along with kids ages nine and up and other dogs!  I can't live with cats though. The staff here absolutely loves me, but they know I'm more than just a cute face. I need to go to a home where the people are going to be willing to work on training me or to have me trained. Luckily for you (and me!), I'm totally treat-motivated and will likely take to training really well. I'm just a super high energy gal who needs some help with focusing my attention. I'm really sweet and want to explore the world at my best!  Please add me to your family and submit a dog adoption application, today. My adoption fee is $275.

Hey everybody, my name is Astro and I'm two-and-a-half years old!  I'm a tan and white female mixed-breed dog, but if you have any guesses about what type of dog I am, I'd love to hear. Some of the staff thinks I'm mixed with whippet, but we aren't sure!  I know how to sit, shake and play. I'm a very sweet girl who gets along with kids ages six and up, but I'm very nervous when it comes to being touched. For that reason, I'm being recommended as a single dog in my forever home. I need time, space and patience to help build my confidence!  Submit an application for me, today. My adoption fee is $225.

Hey there!  My name is Bill. I am a one-year-old male brown Puggle mix dog. I'm a very excitable guy who loves attention and treats!  When it comes to toys, I'm not very interested.

Overall, I'm a very friendly and sweet girl who just needs one last chance!  Submit an application for me, today. My adoption fee is $225.
