Ganon

Our friend Ganon had the opportunity recently to go on a photo shoot for a calendar. He enjoyed the outing thoroughly and was so well-behaved. He was great on the leash, polite to other dogs (and donkeys), friendly to all the people, and listened during the photo shoot.
Someone needs to come adopt this good dog! He’s one of those dogs that does not thrive here at the shelter. We know that he will be a great companion and exercise buddy once he gets into a home. Ganon is hoping for one person to give him a chance.

Bullet <3

Bullet, 7, is trying to tell you something with his beseeching eyes.

“I will be the bestest boy if you adopt me. I will give you kisses. I will lean on your leg while you watch TV. I will not chase the cat. I don’t eat much.”

He is our longest-term resident, having spent 3+ months at the shelter. He’s a big couch potato and walks well on leash.

Picasso

Picasso, 3, is dressed for a summer stay-cation with a furever family.  It’s true that he has a few scars, but he has a beautiful spirit behind them. He has a winning personality:  outgoing, happy, active, goofy, and playful.

Picasso gets along with other dogs, cats and children, and he loves butt scratches and chasing toys.

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!
