rosalieSay hi to Rosalie. She is here trying to find a new home. Rosalie is a true lady who was found as a stray all alone. She is doing well with most of the other dogs here at the shelter but we are not sure on her feelings towards small children or cats. Rosalie is around 3 years old, up to date on her vaccines, and she has been spayed and microchipped.








NormanHi, my name is Norman.  I am a 7 year old sweet boy.  I like to be petted and carried around.  I am shy at first and still a little scared being at the shelter.  A quiet home would probably be best for me.  I am up to date on all of my vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.  Please come in and get to know me!
