Grinch arrived at the shelter just a few days before Christmas in 2019. The person who brought him in said he had been dumped on his property. Grinch’s estimated birth date is June 2018, but he has the spunk of a kitten. He loves attention, rolls around and plays, and has started to enjoy playing with kittens at the shelter. When he is in his kennel, he rolls over on his back and paws at you through the kennel for love and attention. He is a very loving guy who will make a wonderful companion in your home.
Terrance is a favorite to everyone who meets him. When he sees you, he hops and dances with delight, ready for anything, including walks. He stands out in a crowd due to his ears, crooked smile and Mickey Mouse marking on his side. He is a pitbull mix, 6 or 7 years old, and 68 pounds. He is easy to handle because he moseys along wherever he is led. He could care less if you pet or hug him, as long as it is some kind of attention. He is sweet but would do best alone with a family of adults. Kiddos and other pooches make him nervous. This means his love will be bountiful for the people who choose to make them their own. Terrance was at the shelter from August 2017 until he was adopted in February 2018. Unfortunately, he returned to the shelter in September 2019 because his adoptive family could no longer care for him. It was no fault of his own, just unfortunate circumstances. The shelter hopes to find him his forever home soon so he can enjoy family life again.
