They can be tricky on you because they are so darn smart. If you are an active person, she is right up your alley. She also likes to chill and snuggle at the end of the day. super sweet

Simpson is super super sweet and friendly! He is a little shy at first so no small children but is so loving and friendly so very quickly. He is young at just 1 1/2 yr old. We believe he is a hound mix. He is tall but not very big and would be an awesome dog for just about any active family.

Scruffy is a 6 year old Giant Schnauzer mix (we think). He is very active and loves the pool and tennis balls.. Because of his activity level, he annoys most dogs so he would do best as the only dog. He is very sweet and friendly too.
Arrow, a 5 year old German Shepherd male. He is a BIG boy but oh so gentle with people. He has lots of energy & needs to be reminded once in awhile to mind his manners but he tries very hard to be a good boy
(Arrow may not live in the city of Alton because his owners let him run at large and he killed a 4 lb Yorkie. We still do not know if he meant to as the dog had no bite marks but it is what it is)
He will need to be an only dog and he will only be allowed to go home with an experienced dog handler. He cannot ever be allowed to roam at large again.
Jack is a very sweet 7 year old Blue Heeler Mix. He has epileptic seizures, usually triggered by stress but are being well controlled with medication. He would do best in a home with no small children.
Malu is a beautiful 4 year old Blue Pitt Mix. She was left behind when her family moved and came in malnourished, hairless and covered in skin sores from lack of care. She is a very pretty and healthy girl now and she LOVES people, LOVES them all. But due to lack of socialization as a puppy she does not do well with other dogs or cats. She would love to have all the attention she can get, belly rubs, walks, car rides, you name it as long as she is with her person she is happy.
Malu's Sponsor is Holly Robeen

Paisley - 6 year old Greyhound mix female. She has a VERY high prey drive so she will need a home with no other pets. She is great all people. She is a fence climber so she would do best in a home with an invisible fence,a family who loves to run or will utilize a doggie daycare.

He is GREAT with other dogs and house trained. He does great with people too but because of his deafness, he is easily surprised so he would do best in a home with no small children.
Jesse is a 8 year old Boxer mix female. She is gentle, sweet, walks well on her leash, is house trained, and loves ALL people. But Jesse would be best as an only dog. She likes car rides and belly rubs, going for a run or laying next to you while you watch TV. Jesse was rescued on her last day of life at animal control.
Addie. is a ray of sunshine, it seems she's always trying to make you laugh. She makes you feel so loved, she adores every second she gets to hangout beside you!
This girl loves to play. I have yet to find a toy she doesn't love. She has proven she is a quick learner as well. She would do best with a submissive male dog. Not sure about cats.
Clayton is an 8 yr old Boxer mix male. He was the only survivor of a litter of puppies who were rescued from Union County Animal Control along with their mommy.Clayton has a neurological issue that prevents him from running like a normal dog.He is also partially blind in one eye.He LOVES almost everyone, dogs, (no tiny dogs or cats) adults, he has a wonderful nature even with this disability. Because of this limited vision, he would do best with a home without small children.
