Jack Sparrow - 1 year old Chihuahua mix male. SUPER good with other dogs, NOT good with kids, Missing one eye, House trained, Loves to be carried.
Hayes - 5 year old American Eskimoo male. Hayes weighs 21 lbs. I love this dog! He is perfectly house trained, NEVER has an accident. He does okay with other dogs as long as they are not crazy hyper in your face dogs. Hayes has one flaw and one flaw only and that is he is timid with hand motions. This only last for a short time but he absolutely cannot go home with any children at all! he would do best in a home with structure and routine's as he has a little OCD himself. Likes his bed kept neat, his fur kept clean and his food tidy in his bowl. lol
He is very affectionate with his humans...But again terrified of hand movements and quick approaching things like kids.
Butters - Chocolate Hound/Lab Mix Male, 51lbs, 1-2 years. Friendly with other dogs and likes all people.
Gizmo - 1.5 yr old Bull Terrier Mix Male - Friendly, Energetic but can be dominating with other dogs. We do not have cats so we are unable to test him with them. He is a fun dog and would make a wonderful fur kid for most active families.
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.

Toto 3 year old Yorkie mix male. He was one of 72 small dogs in a hoarding situation and because of his insecurities would do best in a home with no children, no other pets and with only one human.

He has a lot of love to give but he is loyal to just one person.

Jax is a 2 year old American Pit Bull Terrier male. Very small in size. He is great with all people and kids. He is not great with other dogs as when he gets excited he plays extremely rough and it is hard to get him to redirect. So home with no other dogs is preferred. He weighs 43 lbs and is just under the knee tall. Good dog.
Sanford - 3 year old American Staffordshire terrier. He is deaf but don't let that fool you he isn't hard to manage at all as he only wants to please you. 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.
Look at this face will ya...HOW does he NOT have a home?
Bailey is the sweetest most loving dog ever. He loves his people,truly he does.
He is 7 years old and had a home but his love was not enough to keep his owner from leaving him behind when she moved.
Now he goes to doggie daycare everyday and waits for someone to pick him up at night to take him home.
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.
