Echo is an energetic young dog who LOVES people! She is a great hiking or jogging partner, and would make a perfect companion for a family who enjoys the great outdoors. This smart girl is a 55lb 3yr old German Shepherd who needs a family who will continue her training with us. She has a great big smile and a happy tail wag. Echo has nice house manners and really enjoys spending time with the family. She will play ball with the kids and then snooze on the couch for movie night! When Echo first came to WCAL she was quite reactive (barking and making a big scene) towards other animals, but she is making huge strides in her doggy play group! She can now be off-leash with a group of other dogs and engage in nice play behaviors. We are so proud of this girl for coming such a long way. Echo needs a family who will continue working with a Force-Free & Reward Based training program to help her with manners around other dogs. She has barrier frustration while on leash, but we are confident that she will make major improvements in this area as well. You just have to meet this girl! (no cats or small critters need apply)
Her bags are packed and Cinnamon is ready for an adventure with you. Must have cats! Seriously, she really wants to have a kitty or two in her forever home for snuggling. Cinnamon likes long walks in the park and rolling around in the grass. She is 10 years young, likes to sleep in late and is a fantastic companion. Cinnamon is nice with strangers and she would do great in a home with respectful kids. It takes her a sec to warm up, but she is all heart and her tail never stops wagging. Not sure about all that commitment? Maybe you can be her foster family instead?
What a beauty! She is a 4.5 year old white German Shepherd and couldn't be nicer. Dutchess is living in a foster home with older kids while she finishes treatment for heartworm. She has lived with indoor cats, small dogs and big dogs in the past. If you are interested in this gal, she will be ready to go home at the end of June, but you can apply now and come meet her!
Wake up every morning to someone who truly L💗VES you! All you need is a dog like Reba, AKA ‘The Love Machine’. This 3 year old is ready to be swept away by her forever family. She gets along with other dogs, loves to snuggle, and comes with her own licker license! This boxer mix has zero sense of personal space, but she is crate trained for those times her humans have to leave home without her. Reba is looking for a patient, kind family with another friendly big dog who can be her mentor. She does great in the car and running around at the park with her dog pals. Reba is still getting comfortable on walks in noisy areas and it really helps to have another dog to show her the way. You should see her run and play with a giant smile on her face...
Look at this sweet face. Mac is a young Border Collie mix working to overcome his fearfulness. He is looking for a super nice human who won't rush him along and who will make sure that all the strangers he meets have tasty bits of meat to share. He feels most comfortable with ladies, but has made some good guy friends as well. Mac would be very happy in a calm home with other dogs, preferably with a pool, lake or river near by... he LOVES water! We think he might actually be part otter... He is a wonderful agility dog who has completed a handful of training classes already. Cats would be ok too, but no young children please!
This 1 year old cattle dog puppy has all the best qualities you'd want in a companion! He is active and loves to play, but is happy to settle next to you and chew on his favorite toys. McCoy would make an excellent office or winery dog as he loves all people and other dogs and will need a job to keep him busy and stimulated. McCoy has met lots of dogs, large and small, and he is enthusiastic about each new friend. He has proven to be quite interested in cats -- not that he would hurt them intentionally, but he likes to chase and his mouthy play style can be a little over the top for the average feline. McCoy is incredibly smart and loves brain games... he can't wait to show off with you in a puppy obedience class! Currently he is healing from a surgery to correct an issue with his elbow but it hasn't dampened his spirits.
