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!

Stop clowning around and get down to the shelter to adopt Clarabelle! Clarabelle is a 1-year 8-month old Terrier mix. She was first adopted from the shelter when she was a little pup but recently her adopters brought her back. This was due to no fault of Clarabelle. She has a beautiful russet and brown coat with handsome white bib and socks. She is a small dog and ever so sweet!

This handsome young dog is Larry. Larry is a hound mix and he has the ears to prove it! He is around a year old and weighs 40 pounds. Larry likes to play with other dogs, but has been known to be a little of an attention hog. Larry has long, lean legs and a brilliant orange and brown brindle coat. Please go meet Larry (No. 26037) and all of his friends down at Beaumont Animal Services.

My name is Paul. I’m around 2-3 years young and I weigh 26 pounds. I am very sweet and very playful, so I need someone to play with me! I love running around in the yard and playing with toys. I’m good on a leash and sure would love to go on walks with you by my side. I also like to play with other dogs but like to be introduced slowly and get to know them with you by my side. If you are interested in adopting me, please come down to BAS and meet me. If you call for information, reference system No. 25340.

Layla

You would just love Layla. Her foster mom says she is lovely, and we agree. Layla is a 1-year old, 53-pound golden retriever/hound mix. Layla came to the shelter due to the death of her owner. She has a medium-short length, red-colored coat. She has the appearance of a hound, especially with her long ears and pining eyes. She is super sweet with a hound’s laid-back nature.
