Odie is mellow and affectionate...A very handsome guy! He was running with a pack of dogs on the reservation, but wanted a better life. He enjoys playing with toys. At 8 years old, he weighs about 55 lbs. He is hoping to find his family soon so he can have a chance at a loyal companionship with them. He must have a fenced yard and must be kept on a leash when outside of his yard. Odie also has some contact allergies, which have been managed with periodic medication. Schedule to come play with him in Annie's play yard!
Tom is such a handsome fellow and is also a quick learner! He likes playing and is very affectionate with people. Tom weighs about 40 lbs and sports a very nice coat. He needs someone who is an experienced dog person, as Tom is dog aggressive. He is 5 years old.
This lady is exceedingly loving and happy-go-lucky! She came to us from a high-kill, out-of-state shelter and is happy to have the opportunity to play with all her new doggy friends here at the shelter. She's even more excited about the possibility of finding an always-companion that she can go home with! Roo is about 1 year old. She is "cow-hocked" in the back legs, which limits her in no other way than that she will not be an intensive hiking or running companion. However, there is a possibility that this conformation might increase the odds of Roo developing arthritis after she's older. Roo is currently in training as a potential therapy dog, and she is showing LOTS of promisel!
Lacey is a strikingly attractive and muscular girl. She is an owner-surrender, coming from the home of an older woman who couldn't care for her. She is obedient, housetrained and up to date on shots. She walks well on leash and is very affectionate with people. Lacey is between 6 and 7 years old. She will do well with an athletic individual who is also dog-savvy and will respect the fact that she doesn't respond well to other dogs.
Information provided to Annie's Orphans about Inky: "Hello, my name is Inky. I'm a 7 year old poodle who is looking for a loving home. I am jet black with a white goatee! I spent the first 6 years of my life with a lady who had 5 other dogs, so I get along well with other small dogs. My lady died, and I was rescued by another lady who has a cat. While the cat doesn't like me very much, I get along with him very well. My present lady has to move into assisted living and can't take me with her. I grieved for 6 months when I lost my first owner. I don't know how long I'll react to losing my second owner. I was born to LOVE. I am sweet and very affectionate. I am trained to use puppy pads, and with my first owner, I used the doggie door, to go outside. I love to go for rides in the car, and am very well behaved. I am a one person dog and am very shy around strangers. I bark at people when they come to the door, but I stop when my owner says "Inky, no bark!". I will bring much joy and happiness to you if you will give me a good home and lots of love. Please come meet me and you will see what a loving dog I am. I am also super smart, and easy to train." AO has been advised that Inky is under 15 lbs, vaccinations will be made current, and she is spayed.

Sweet little Ariel was sent our way, a very pregnant girl whose time was up for finding a home at another shelter. She was picked up running loose and was, unfortunately, impregnated during her first heat cycle. She had her "one-time" healthy litter of seven shortly after arriving and performed her role as a mother extremely well, especially considering that, at the time, she was still under a year old herself. She is a very people-focused lady, good with dogs, very attentive, affectionate and eager to learn. Ariel's ideal home will include another medium-energy canine friend and a family that will provide moderate activity, since an early-life injury to one of her feet causes some slight compromise. This 2 year old is ready to start a new life of her own -- filled with comforts, ample vittles and LOTS of affection!
Sammy is a 5 year old, very shy, one-person dog. She would be excellent for a single-person household. She requires a lot of exercise and must have a fenced yard accessible from the door of her new home. She tends to be dominant with other dogs, but can get along with them. Sammy came to our shelter from a rescue in Dulce.
Rowdy is a 5 year old owner-surrender who had some initial difficulties transitioning to a return to kennel-life. He has, under our care, made remarkable shifts and is now walking on leash, is not nearly as shy and is, in general, a more confident and engaging guy. He will require a large yard and continued gentle approaches to training.
Sam is a large, ginger-colored, 9 year old, Chihuahua boy. He and his friend, Pam, needed placement when their aging companions moved into assisted living, and Annie's was called since the family hoped to avoid any risk that the beloved pets might be euthanized. While a tad stand-offish initially, Sam is very friendly/sweet and listens well. He has slimmed down since his arrival here and weighs in at 16 lbs now (Yes, BIG for a Chihuahua). While he lived for years as a housetrained pet, Sam will need someone with time and patience to give him a "refresher course" on the subject, since he has been kenneled at Annie's Orphans for some time now. He will be happiest placed in a home with a gentle, small, female dog. He loves playing the role of "big brother." Sam is already microchipped.
Indy is a beautiful Shepherd/ Border Collie mix. He is approx. 6 yrs old and around 55 lbs. He is the brother to Coby. Indy loves to play with other dogs, but seems to prefer the lady-dogs. He is very agile and would be a great workout buddy. He is shy and skittish and will need a home with consistency, love and plenty of one-on-one handling. Placed with a person who has dog-savvy, he will come around. He has been fostered and thrives in a home environment. Schedule to visit him and bring your dog for him to meet!
