Mickey Finn – Shepherd/Collie mix
Meet the happiest dog in the world, Mickey Finn! Mickey had a tough life before being rescued by AAU. He has some scars on his face, missing front teeth, and he occasionally holds his back leg up when he runs. But none of that gets Mickey down! He is one of the sweetest, happiest fosters we have ever had!!
Mickey is a shepherd/collie mix with very soft fur. He is about 6 years old and around 50 pounds. Mickey has the perfect energy level: excited for a walk, food, or attention, but is mellow when the rest of the family is busy. He goes with the flow.
Mickey’s happiness is contagious! You can’t help but touch him. Mickey smiles all the time, nuzzles into you, and keeps you laughing with his antics from crossing his paws, crawling toward you, rolling over and squirming, and making “aroo” noises when you are preparing his food. Mickey will soak up all the love you are willing to give.
Mickey is housetrained, rarely barks, is great with other dogs and walking on a leash. No need for a crate as he has great manners. Mickey does have allergies so will require prescription dog food. He is SO worth it!! Mickey is looking for a best friend and companion. Please ask to meet him today!! (Mickey loves kids, but no young children for Mickey Finn. He gets startled by loud and quick movements).
Nibbles – Catahoula/Retriever mix?
“My name is Nibbles, but I go by Jack. I am a year old and weigh about 60 pounds. Best guess on my breed is Catahoula and retriever mix? Who knows, but I sure am handsome! They tell me all the time! My brindle markings are to die for. I am super sweet and smart. I want to please and learn new things. I have already mastered sit and lay down, next is stay. I have been bounced around a lot and now have found myself in boarding. No place for me. I need a stable and structured home environment with a dog savvy family. I get along with other dogs, chase cats, and would do best in a household without children. What I really want is a forever home! One to spend the rest of my life with. Is it you? I am house trained and crated trained. I am leash trained too! Did I mention I LOVE other dogs? I would make a great dog for an active person or couple who wants a great companion.

Theodora - Shepherd mix
“Hi! My name is Theodora, but my foster mommy and daddy call me Thea. I was really down on my luck and so very scared when my foster daddy was pulling dogs from a high kill shelter for AAU and saw me huddled in the back of my run, paralyzed with fear, barking dogs all around me. He made a very fast phone call to the Angels and begged them to let him save me, he even told them that he would foster me himself. Of course, they said yes!! But I was so frightened that every time he tried to get me to walk out of my run, I dropped to my tummy and cowered. So he just scooped me up and carried me out of that awful place like a baby. Turned out I was heartworm positive, but no worries, the Angels had me treated for that and those nasty things are gone now!”
“I am a small Shepard mix…only about 28 pounds, spayed, current on all my vaccines, and ready for my forever home.I am about a year old, still a puppy, really. I get along great with other dogs, as a matter of fact I think I would be very sad if my forever home had no playmates for me because I am very high energy and I LOVE to play! Actually, sometimes I would rather play with my doggy friends than eat. I do like cats, a lot! I like to chase them and lick them, but I have never hurt them. A couple of my cat friends here in my foster home don’t like that very much, though. I must be an inside doggy, but I must also have a fenced in backyard as I love to hang out in the backyard and on the deck when my foster mommy and daddy are home, and I love to run and play with my foster family’s other dogs. One thing you do need to know about me is that I can sail right over a 4 foot wooden fence, you should see me! I am GOOD at that! So I will require at least a 6 foot privacy fence, I have never tried to get out of my foster family’s 6 foot fence. I also LOVE the baby pool….so if you adopt me I would like to have one of those, too. Could I be the right doggy for your family?”
