Ruby Roo

Ruby Roo is an 8 year old female Boxer.  She is very active and loves to play fetch.  She does not do well with other dogs or small animals so it is best that she be an only pet.  She does have Boxer Colitis for which she eats a special diet of Purina ONE Smartblend True Instict, canned pumpkin and yogurt with a morning Pepcid and does very well.  

Ruby Roo's Sponsor is Beverly Tucker

Tanner

 

Tanner is a 5 1/2 month old male Hound/Pitt mix. He was found with a rope that had been tied around his neck and tied to a tree, and as he grew the rope became embedded into his neck. He will always have a scar from the ordeal but now he wears his scar as a medal and as a testament to others how dogs who are just tied up outside become forgotten and neglected. Tanner is an amazing dog who loves people and other dogs. 

Darby - Adoption Pending

 

Darby is a 2 year old male. His breeds has us a little stumped.. He is a very tall boy, could be Collie, could be Great Pyrenees... he is definitely one where a DNA test could be a fun discovery. He is extremely sweet, he likes to gently put his paws up over your shoulders like a Pyrenees, ( which makes for a good dancing partner) He is good with other dogs and would love to be someone's lap baby. He will take human attention over playing with dogs any day. He is very calm and walks well on a leash.

Arrow

Arrow, a 4 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 only be allowed to go home with an experienced dog handler. He cannot ever be allowed to roam at large again.
