Update 12/11/2010. I really need to find a home - real or foster - very soon. The Dog Pound staff and volunteers treat me real well, but I've been here far too long. I do have some special needs, like I really want to stick with you when I'm outside because I have trouble seeing and a little trouble hearing these days. I love to be groomed and petted. I walk great on a leash - I just want to stick with you. I am an easy going dog who wants to make you my companion. I promise if you invite me into your family, I will be loyal and provide you with dedicated companionship. Please stop by and take me for a walk. I know you'll enjoy my company. I really need to find a good home before Christmas. My volunteers even gave me a name but you sure can change it once I'm a member of your family. I'm Millie for now. You will know my gentle soul when you give me a treat and have to set it on the floor before I will take it. See you soon!

Male – intact; 67 lbs, 15-18 months old; HW negative; Has had DA2PPCCV and Bordatella at the shelter and $15.00 pull fee. Located at Manatee Animal Services.
Has been at the shelter since December 7th and is out of time!
From shelter contact - This dog is an American Bulldog Mix, mainly white with some brown on him. He is laidback. He does bark at things every so often not much though. He loves to play and have belly rubs. He will try to sit in your lap and give kisses. He seems to know hand signals, I am not sure how many. He loves his blankets. Here are some pictures of my sweet heart.

According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), nearly half of the dogs that are sent to shelters are killed because nobody will adopt them. Seven out of ten cats are killed. PETA estimates that up to 4 million animals are euthanized in shelters each year.
Some pet owners argue that they are looking for a specific animal breed that is hard to find through adoption. Beyond adopting, you can prevent the cycle of strays by spaying and neutering your own pets.
The ASPCA website provides more information on pet adoption. You can also check out PetFinder.com to not only find an adorably adoptable pet, but also procrastinate for hours cooing over these cuddly creatures!

These white Boxers are urgent at the Green River animal shelter. The one asleep is deaf, but that's all the information I have. Please call Sandy at the Green River animal shelter after 11 am central time to find out more about one or both of these Boxers if you can help. The number is 270-385-9655. The shelter is full and more intakes are expected to come in this week. Please take a look at the website and help a dog or cat if you can.

I've escaped once before, and I was found by Orange Park High School, and taken to Clay County Animal Protection Services in Green Cove Springs. My owner had to spring me out and pay a fine because I didn't wear a tag. I have had all my vaccinations, rabies and all.
Again, my stats are:
Neutered, male, white with spots on my fine coat - I have a spot on one of my eyes, just like the dog in the old tv show Little Rascals. I was wearing a reflective collar, black and gray (the reflective part is gray). My owner was stupid enough to postpone getting me my tag and see what happens! However I do have a microchip, so shelters can scan it for identification purposes... if they do it at all when they are not too overwhelmed with the volume of dogs like me getting in all the time.
I think I am done with my grand adventure and I am ready to go home to my owners. I don't know why, but they love me with all their hearts and I'm sure they are very sad about me being gone. Please help me get back home where I belong!

This dog is very special, he is deaf. His name is Joba and he was found as a stray. He had a responsible owner at some point because he is already neutered. Joba is very handsome and friendly. Joba makes good eye contact , knows his sit command, takes treats gently. Joba likes to go for walks and is a happy guy.

Old Boy is oblivious to dogs that are around him. He was found with that gash on his head which they say is old and they left it open. He also has a round sore on his back which the vet says is a tumor that popped. He doesn't seem in pain with it, and doesn’t seem to have arthritis. He is a sweet boy and obviously has had a rough time of things, but definitely seeks out a person and whines for them if he can smell them. He has a great appetite as well! With any blind dog, there is a period of adjustment, but it is felt that once he can get used to familiar surroundings, he will adapt.
We hope that a kind soul or a rescue will step up for Old Boy, and will give him much love and a warm place to live for whatever time he has left. But if a rescuer or adopter cannot be found, he will be held in loving arms when he goes over the rainbow bridge.
If you can give Old Boy lots of love and a soft, warm bed to lie on for the remainder of his golden years, please contact Kathy at KathyRN1983@yahoo.com.
