Elinor is way smaller than most golden retreivers (about 45lbs) and is VERY ball driven. She gets along with other dogs fine (as long as they’re not too boisterous) but does NOT want another dog around her toys…she is ball CRAZY!!!
This dog is very shy, he LOVES other dogs so he will need to go to a home with other dogs to help give him confidence.
This is Brooks…he’s a happy, sweet, fun outgoing purebred yellow lab. He LOVES all people, but doesn’t do well with rambunctious dogs. He just wants his own space. We would consider placing him with another dog, but the dog needs to be able to give him his space and coexist. He’s got lots of energy but can settle down when he needs to.
One beautiful dog who was rescued as a youngster during Hurricane Isaac – so he's been waiting for the right active family to find him for four years!! Henry is a lot of playful dog, he is good with other dogs, but he plays hard all the time. He needs to play with dogs who won't get offended by his maneuvers.
One of our original “Swampies”, Abel came out of the Assumption Parish Jail dog’s location. When we first took on this area, we were new to the dangers of the country and swamp when it came to dogs’ health. Besides dealing with heartworm, Abel became our “guinea pig” when it came to introducing us to what would become one of the most deadly diseases in the canine world here in the South. After coming down with a “sickness” we couldn’t figure out, our vet was finally able to determine that Abel was the first case of “Chagas” that had just come into the South Louisiana area from South America.
After over almost two years of treatment, he finally kicked the killer disease and is ready to live life as a companion dog. This “fuzzy” Pit mix (some say he has Chesapeake Retriever in him) he is such a big ole goofball. We are trying to teach him manners around other dogs and he’s still working on it. Abel has lots of energy and will need a big yard or someone who is on the go. He’s just a fun dog and let’s face it….he’s just pretty darn cute!
He is one of the cutest guys in town. Those short little legs, and big ears are just to die for. He may be small, but his will to live is BIG! Mr. Snuffles came to us from Assumption Parish very sick with advanced heartworm disease. Unfortunately, this left him with irreversible damage to his heart and lungs. He is doing much better after staying with our vet for awhile, and although his medications are working wonders, we don't know for sure how much time his heart will allow him. Due to his health he will need to go to a local home so he can continue to see our vet, and a cardiologist, which we will continue to cover the costs for. He absolutely loves to play with other dogs and needs a best friend to help him with his confidence.
