Meet your newest crush, whose name will be easy to remember since it’s Crush!Crush is the first to admit that he has not had an easy life. He first arrived at the shelter as a stray in 2013. He had been attacked by two other dogs and as a result, had a pretty painful spinal injury. He was then adopted by someone who brought him back just a few months later because she was moving. He was adopted again, and this time stayed with that family for over 5 years. But when they decided to start a family, they returned Crush.Crush can potentially live with another dog, but it would need to be the right dog and with an adopter willing to take things slowly. He is super smart and loves treat puzzles. Okay, so he really just likes the treats in the puzzle, but he knows he has to solve the puzzle to get the treat so he gets to work right away! If the treat happens to be cheese, he gets to work even quicker!Toys are fun, especially the soft, squeaky ones! Car rides are exciting, and if you let him, Crush will nudge up to the front seat just far enough to give you some kisses. Hiking at the park is the best because there are so many smells and people and dogs and his whole face just lights up with curiosity!Crush is ready for some stability, with someone who understands he isn’t an object that can be returned if he doesn’t work perfectly all the time, or if there are some life changes. He’s looking for someone willing to put in some effort, and in return, he promises to do his very best. You’re a good boy, Crush!Reach out to to learn more!Find Orange Dot Crew on Facebook and Instagram!

This very good boy was initially shy and a bit scared when he first arrived but he`s come out of his shell so much! Alfalfa is now confident and goofy and he LOVES adventure! Whether it be going on a hike at McKinney Falls State Park, or going swimming, or even just hopping in the car for some sightseeing – Alfalfa is your guy!Alfafa is not only curious and adventurous, he is also a smarty pants! He knows several commands (sit, down, and shake), and we`re pretty sure he`d love to learn a few more. Oh, and he is somewhat of a diva… that’s right, Alfafa loves it when you brush his hair. He’ll thank you by wagging his bushy tail and maybe even giving you a kiss or two!As a larger, black dog, Alfafa is often overlooked here. When you walk past his kennel, he`ll bark and jump, but all he`s trying to say is `pick me!`. And he doesn`t understand why nobody ever does pick him :( Alfalfa just needs someone to give him a chance, which is why we`re hoping to find him a foster home, so they can see the amazing dog he is without all the stress of being at the shelter. As a member of the Orange Dot Crew, Alfafa will go home with everything you need, including a crate, harness, goodie bag, a training voucher, and all the support you need. Please email them for more info, or to set up a time to meet him: orangedotcrew@gmail.comFind Orange Dot Crew on Facebook and Instagram! show less

Oh, Alfie! His name is actually Alfred but we only call him that when he`s being naughty. Alfie is young and frustrated and smart... that is a recipe for naughty dog when you are living in the shelter! Alfie also isn`t the most confident doggo. But no worries, Alfie has a big circle of shelter friends and they are helping show him that people are good and the world isn`t so scary!Alfie enjoys taking his time on strolls, leaving no smell un-smelled. He also likes treats and puzzle toys. The car still makes him a little nervous so we`re taking baby steps with car rides but Alfie is getting braver and braver each time.Alfie takes direction nicely and would do well with a patient, savvy foster. He has shown friendly interest in other dogs, but he would definitely need some decompression time and then slow intros.Alfie is a bit handshy and while we don`t like to think of why that is, we do keep it in mind and make sure to go slowly and move very deliberately around him. This cute little shepherd mix is fairly out-of-sorts at the shelter and we`d love to get him into foster so he can catch up on his zzz`s and be the best doggie he can be. In addition to all the regular goodies, Alfie goes home with a couple of bottles of spray cheese - his FAVORITE thank you very much!Reach out to to learn more! show less
