It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every
new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all
the components of my heart will be dog and I will become as generous and loving and they are.

"A person who has never owned a dog has missed a wonderful part of life".
- Bob Barker -
Kismet was very much loved by his owner, but life events made it impossible
to keep him. He is a beautiful dog, friendly and sweet and he would
very much like to have his own person or family again,
as shelter life is just not the same!

I like a dog at my feet when I read, whatever his size or whatever his breed.
- Edgar A. Guest -
This super sweet boy is all hound dog with his soulful bark. He may have been a
hunter at one time, but now he wants nothing more than to retire to the comfort
of a sofa or lap. He is gentle with everyone and is sure to be topic of
conversation when he meets new people on your outings. Can't you
picture him in front of your fireplace at the end of a long day?

"Properly trained, a man can be dog's best friend."
- Corey Ford
With Abby, you get the best of both worlds: She is independent, yet very
tuned in to her people. She's equally happy cuddling and getting belly
rubs, hiking, or basking in the sun and knows her basic commands.

"You can do the impossible, because you have been through the unthinkable.
- Christina Rasmussen -
What happened to sweet Dutch? We have no idea and he doesn't seem to care.
Dutch arrived with an injury to his back leg. He is not putting any weight on it
but it doesn't slow him down and certainly doesn't stop him from being a lovable
sweetie pie. We will be having his leg evaluated and we will update this information.
Of course when you are as amazing, unstoppable, and handsome as Dutch it doesn't
really matter what happened. He is looking toward his future but would prefer to
heal surrounded by the warmth and love from a furever family. Come meet this
sugary sweet boy and ask how AAS will support Dutch through the healing
process during his stay with us and in his furever home.
Update, 3 May 2016. Dutch is now being cared for in a foster home for 6 - 8 weeks,
while he recovers from the surgery he will have soon to repair an old leg injury.

Update, 15 June 2015, from his foster care mom: "I'm teaching him to fetch. I
know you would think he would know that. I started out just throwing it 3 inches
from him. Well today I was able to check if he was using the leg while slowly running
and he did. I was careful to not over do it but wanted to see if he still hiked it up.
He did that last week. Sooooo Dutch is doing great!!!! I think he will make
a full recovery. He has a Dr's appt 24 June. I'll update again. Yay Dutch!!!

This senior boy is looking for a new home to spend his golden years in.
He will do best in a home without small children or would be
great for a retired family. Please help make his dream
of a loving forever home come true!

This is one big "hunk of burning love" just looking for someone to call his own! To put
it mildly, I just adore people of all ages and have plenty of room in my big heart for
everyone in the family. I would do best as the only pet, and no cats, please! I'll
need a 6 foot wood privacy fence,too, so I can excercise to stay in great shape.
Where else can you find such a great looking personal trainer?

Look Again! I am a long-term shelter resident and can't understand why no one looks at me.
Every dog dreams about a forever home and I have been waiting patiently for a long time.
Please take another look at me.Heart.jpg - 2286 BytesLove, Baxter.

Baxter is being cared for in a foster hom.
