Bella

6/11/2018
Age: Adult Female
Breed: Black Lab mix
Bella is a Black Lab Mix. She is a TOTAL LOVEBUG! All she wants is to be by her human. Just pet her head and she melts into a doggie puddle. She is a house dog, not a yard dog.
She is housetrained and is excellent on a leash. She doesn’t require a lot of exercise or a large yard, nor does she bark a lot (in fact, she very rarely barks). She does make funny noises when she’s talking to you. She would be perfect for an older couple or someone who wants company without having to exercise her a lot. She weighs 70 lbs. She ignores cats but would probably be best in a one dog household. We have two other small dogs (one of which is old and grumpy) and Bella and the grumpy senior dog are not getting along which is why we are rehoming her. She is heartworm negative, has had all her shots and was fixed on Monday, June 4, 2018. She is approximately 1 1/2 years old.

Kittens

6/19/2018
Age: Baby
Breed: Kittens
A beautiful female cat showed up at our house 8 weeks ago, hungry and pregnant. She had clearly been someone’s pet…gentle, tame and affectionate. We love her! We don’t know if she was dumped or ran away or what her history is. We would like to keep her and have plans to have her spayed in 3 weeks. She has given birth to 4 adorable and healthy kittens and we have constructed an enclosure for them, safe from predators. They have begun the weaning process and will be ready to find a loving home by the end of the month. These little guys will melt your heart. We play with them during the day and hold them regularly so they are becoming socialized and should bring nothing but joy into your home! We might keep one of them but are not sure yet. My goal is to have them placed by June 29th. We live in the inlet beach area. If you are interested, please contact me. We want them to be loved and cared for and to be adopted by kind and responsible people.

Mia

6/26/2018
Age: Young Female
Breed: Mix
Mia is an almost three year old baby. Recently she has decided she does not like the other dogs. Because of her size and fear that there will be serious injury to her, the other animals or us in breaking up the fights she starts we must rehome her. She is spayed, potty and crate trained. She just had her monthly flea and tick medication but is due for vaccinations. She loves to sleep on the your lap even though she probably weighs a little over 60 pounds. We do not want to have to take her to a shelter and we have no resources in Calhoun County. Please help us.

Drogo

6/26/2018
Age: Young Male
Breed: Black Lab/Blue Heeler mix
Drogo is an extremely happy dog with a lot of puppy left in him. He LOVES to play as much as he can. He loves the outdoors and other playful dogs as well. He is good with kids, other dogs that are willing to play, and cats. Where we live, we are very close to the road and I am 5 months pregnant and can’t chase after him anymore. We are so worried he is going to get hit by a car. He is 1 year old and has had his first puppy booster shots but we haven’t been able to afford the rest of his vaccines. He deserves a better chance at a better life than the one we can provide. He can make your home a happy place.

Penny

6/27/2018
Age: Adult Female

My father passed away last year and we moved into my parents’ home to take care of my mother. Things are not working well with my dog and my mother’s dog.
Penny is a 4-year-old Chiweenie (Chihuahua and Dachshund). She is a very lovable dog but very territorial, needing to be the only dog in the home. She is about 16 pounds, potty trained, and can sit and stay (sometimes!) I would suggest older children to run and play with her.

Merida

6/27/2018
Age: Adult Female
Breed: Torbie with white
We rescued this kitty from a shelter where they were going to put her down because she was sick. She was brought to the shelter with a half dozen other cats by a man who had been feeding feral cats at his home, but they had multiplied to the point that he had too many.
Her name is Merida, from the Disney movie Brave, and she is a little over a year old. She is a cute, sweet Torbie with really soft fur, and a white nose, chest, tummy and feet. She is spayed, has had all her shots, and is litterbox trained. She loves to play, especially with catnip toys and springs, and the highest spot in the cat tree is her favorite. She loves attention and for you to pet her, will rub on your legs, and wants to be where you are. She has a cute meow and likes to talk to you. She usually comes when called or when you snap your fingers, and she always comes when food is involved. She LOVES our dog and will sleep with her and play with her, even letting the dog chase her.
The reason l need to find her a new home is because she is attacking my other cat. I have tried separating them for a half a day at the time and getting them back together, but it hasn’t helped.
Since she has been separated from my other cat, she has become even more affectionate. She would be a great companion in a calm household, with or without a nice dog, and with no other cats and no small children.

Buddy

7/3/2018
Age: Adult Male
Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback mix
Buddy is a 7 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback mix and weighs 70-75 pounds. He is neutered, has a microchip, and has received regular vet care his entire life from Navarre Animal Hospital. Has all his vaccinations and takes his HeartGuard and NexGuard once a month. He loves people and enjoys all the attention he can get. He also likes to play with other dogs but he doesn’t get the opportunity to do that very often. He can be clumsy and doesn’t realize his own size, if he’s around small children he would have to be supervised or he would probably knock them down. Buddy likes to play fetch and to play tug of war with a rope. He also knows commands: come, sit, stay, lay down, rollover, shake, crawl, beg, speak. If you point to a toy and tell him to pick it up, he will. Then tell him to put it away and he will carry it to his kennel and put it away.
Buddy does have a loud bark and likes to bark at the mailman or anyone else who approaches the house. This sounds intimidating to people as they approach the door but he is not aggressive and has never bitten anyone. When they come inside just gets excited to greet them. He likes to chase small animals like squirrels and rabbits etc. so I don’t know how he would do around cats.

Buddy

7/3/2018
Age: Adult Male
Breed: Domestic Longhair
Buddy is a rescued feral cat who has lived indoors for over five years. He is not keen to go outside. He takes awhile getting used to new people and surroundings. His current owner is retired and spends each year in three different residences from Iowa to Florida. The travel and changes in living arrangements are hard on Buddy. He is happiest knowing that he doesn’t have to be uprooted and driven all over the countryside. Buddy is currently at a kennel in Holt, Florida for awhile. He occasionally has lived with other cats and dogs and after a short getting to know you period is fine with additional pets around.

Truman

7/5/2018
Age: Adult Male
Breed: Pyrenean Mastiff
Truman is 6-7 years old. He is fixed. We adopted him from a kill shelter a little over 2 years ago. Due to my husband’s multiple health problems that have been ongoing for the last few months we are having to re-home him because of medical travel. He is a wonderful dog. He is low maintenance. He is an inside dog and is very well house trained. He does not like the FL heat and likes only to go outside to use the bathroom. He loves the winter time and will stay outside all day in colder temps. Wonderful around kids. We have a 2 year old and 10 year old who he is very well mannered with. His favorite thing is to lay around on something comfortable. He currently has his own couch that he lays on but loves laying on carpets or blankets. Pretty good around other dogs but does not like to rough play. He is sometimes good around cats, we don’t have any cats but our neighbors do and he likes them, stray cats not so much. He is a large dog. He weighs about 150lbs and stands about 3.5 feet tall, I’m 5’8 and he comes up to just above my waist; on his hind legs he stands taller than me. He has a goofy personality. He doesn’t like loud noises or thunderstorms so he will come lay in whatever room you are in or if you aren’t home then he’d like to lay in your bedroom. We don’t know how he is around livestock because he hasn’t been around any with us but we don’t know what his years before us were as he was brought in as a stray to the kill shelter in Walton County, FL. Occasionally he will play with toys. He is a great guard dog for his people. He is loves being around men and women. He will let you know when he wants to be loved by pushing his head against you. He is a very great dog. He will walk on a leash and does great on a runner. He loves to get good walks/runs in a few times a week.
