Hooch is quickly stealing the hearts of all the ladies at the shelter. Before long, he’ll steal yours too! Hooch has big feet and an even bigger heart. He weighs 70 pounds, and we believe he is around 2-3 years young. Hooch, an American bulldog mix, is gentle and will be your loyal friend until the end! No. 28461

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.

Hi, Guys! Aren’t my eyes hypnotizing? My name is Zorro and I’m a shepherd/Lab mix who is about 2 years old. I love to play with toys and run around with my doggie friends. I’d love a home with children, but I can be a little clumsy, so bigger kids would be best. If you are interested in me, please contact BAS and ask for me Zorro, No. 27896.

Maximus, a young male blue heeler approximately 1 1/2 years old, is available for adoption. He’s current on all his vaccinations and neutered. Blue heelers are working dogs, so he’ll need a big yard or, even better, a ranch or farm setting. Heelers are herding dogs, so homes with young children are not recommended. Maximus is alert and watchful and would be a great guardian for people and property.

Lovely little Mercedes is what we call a pocket pitty. She is full-grown and only weighs 39 pounds. As you can see, her previous owners neglected to care for her skin. This condition, called demodex, is not contagious and is very easy to fix. We just know she is going to be a gorgeous young lady once her skin clears up. We think she would do best in a home with children 10 and up. She is a little particular about her doggie friends. She prefers, well ... dogs just like her!

Hi, my name is Arnie, and I am grateful for all the nice people at Beaumont Animal Services: the animal control officer who found me, the judge who didn’t let my old owners take me back, the kennel staff who give me food every day and keep my kennel clean. I am grateful for my bed. Would you believe my old bed was a pile of wood pallets? I am grateful that I will never have to feel the weight of a chain hanging from my neck again. I am grateful for all of the nice visitors who stop by my kennel, and the volunteers who give me lots of treats!
