Finn the German Shepherd

Finn is a 68-pound Shepherd mix. Finn is an adult male and is very energetic and silly, fun-loving doggie just begging for attention. He craves affection and prefers to be the only dog being loved on. Finn would do well with older children because of his very playful disposition. Sadly, Finn has been at Beaumont Animal Care since Nov. 6, and no one has shown interest in this fine fellow! He deserves more than a life at the shelter. Visit Finn at 1884 Pine St., Beaumont.

Starr

This is Starr, a cute female spaniel mix who weighs about 20 pounds.  Starr is about 1 1/2.   She seems lonely and uncertain about people, and doesn’t understand a kind voice or loving hand. Starr needs an owner who will be patient, nurturing and understanding. An experienced owner who has worked with animals who have fear would be ideal. Starr would not do well in a home with children. She is a dog that needs love. Will YOU give her that chance?

Izzy

I’m Izzy, a 6-year-old spayed female Lab mix. I didn’t think my life would turn out like this, sitting in a shelter, sharing a kennel with a stranger. I was in a home when I was younger. I was loved by the family and was very happy. I am gentle, get along with other animals and children. I am housebroken and have gone to obedience school! My only fault is I take thyroid meds … and what lady my age doesn’t? I don’t understand why my family left me here.

Onna

What’s up, world! My name is Onna, and I really love people. Every time I see them my little nub tail starts wiggling really fast! I love it when they give me a good head scratch, or even better, a belly rub! I get along well with other dogs and I love to cuddle with my kennel mates. I walk well on a leash, but I like to be the leader. I would love a spacious backyard to expel my energy.
