Tiggy

Meet Tiggy! This 7-year-old loves people, food and ear rubs. A happy boy, he knows sit and walks well on leash. Favorite things to do: playing fetch (although “drop” command needs a little work), Tug of War, going for walks and watching squirrels (secretly planning how to catch one).
Tiggy does not do well with cats or children, and he is selective about his dog friends. He loves getting back rubs, and neck scratches makes him grin. He enjoys exploring the yard and soaking up the sun. Tiggy does not bark much but is quite vocal when playing Tug of War.
If he might be right for you, please complete the online application, and we will take it from there. Once you meet him, you will fall in love looking into those honey color eyes and that GREAT smile!

El Dorado

Tan dog with light colored eyes
Mystery man

El Dorado, 2, is a dog with a past. If only he could talk!  He was wandering on a busy road with a significant but healing injury on his forehead. After treatment, he settled in to get used to his new environment and is finally now ready to leave his past behind.  He is shy with new people but turns into a lap dog once he is comfortable.

El Dorado loves back scratches and ear rubs, and he will give kisses in return. He gets along with other dogs, cats and children 8 years old or older. Please adopt this former vagabond, and give him the home life he wants and deserves!

Domino

Black and white dog
The sweetest boy!

Domino, 11, is a sweet older gentlemen in need of a soft place to land. His owner passed away, and his fur-buddy has already found a new home.  Domino is very affectionate, loves back scratches, and wants to be a lap dog once he gets to know you. He knows sit and shake, walks well on leash, and gets along with other dogs, cats and children.

Domino has heartworms, so if you want to take him home, it would first be as a foster.  The shelter will treat the heartworms, and then you can finalize the adoption.

Georgie, 2, is a happy, bouncy guy who likes hugs and playing with toys. And can we talk about those ears?  He may be related to the renowned local bats.

Georgie gets along with other dogs and children over 7 years old, but not cats. If you have an active lifestyle and want to share it with an energetic dog, Georgie is your guy!

Venus

Venus, 3, turned herself into the shelter when she jumped over the fence into a play yard. Was she abandoned nearby, or was she attracted by the scents and sounds of other dogs?  We will likely never know, but we applaud her initiative.

Since we have gotten to know her, we’ve learned that she loves attention, walks well on a leash, and gets along with other dogs, cats and children. She is a tad shy when she first meets you, and then she loosens up and becomes friendly and loving. Venus has a beautiful brindle coat like a Plott Hound.

King, the Dashing Southwestern Labsky

dog of week 11-23-13 king webKing was adopted within hours of his debut, but we wanted to share him with you anyway!

As athletic as the mighty Pirates and sweeter than honey, 9-month-old King is as unique as they come.  King is a Dashing Southwestern Labsky and you can only find him at the Georgetown Animal Shelter.

Since King is mostly black, he would match all of your black and gold Southwestern gear.  He is very ball driven and would love to accompany you to any sporting event – just watch for the pick six because King WILL intercept the ball! King is neutered, current on vaccines, microchipped, and housetrained.

He was brought to the shelter with 7 of his siblings when they were 3 months old and he is the only one still waiting for a home. King is now the longest term resident at the shelter and has a reduced adoption fee. King’s motto, just like Southwestern University, is “Not Who But What.”

King doesn’t care who you are, what kind of car you drive, or how much money you make. King only cares about what kind of life you will provide for him. His only requirement: a lifetime of love and loyalty.  Please don’t let King celebrate his first birthday at the shelter.

Doug

dog of week 08-24-13 doug

10/5  Adopted!

Howdy-do! My name is Doug and I am a 2 year old cattle dog. Oh don’t mind this collar around my neck! It’s actually gone now.  I recently had surgery to help fix a previous injury to my back leg and the humans around here didn’t want me to lick my stitches for some reason.  I am neutered, current on vaccines, and microchipped.

I am housetrained and know basic commands, and I get along great with all people and other dogs.  I might always have a permanent limp but that won’t hinder me from going on walks in the park, hopping in the car for a ride, or snuggling next to you during the ball game. Do you have a Doug-shaped hole in your life? Have no fear! I am ready to fill that hole and enjoy a lifetime of love and laughter with a new forever family. Come visit me today and see just how great I truly am!
