Morrison is a 7 year old neutered Border Collie mix. He has been an amazing dog, very intelligent, very loyal. He is high energy but with a walk a day he's good to go!

My husband and I brought home our sweet baby two weeks ago and our 7 year old border collie mix did not take to him well at all. He started getting uncharacteristically aggressive to the point where it's was unsafe to keep him in the house. My husband has reached out to every shelter in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, and Kentucky and they are all full. Also, we can't really risk training him because of how he was with the baby. Super super sad situation because it was the last thing we expected because he had been such a good dog. We had just not seen him with babies or kids before.

Name:  Baraka

Email Address:

Baraka is a 5 year old neutered Siberian Husky. He is crate trained, and potty trained. He enjoys the company of children and adults. We have a 2 year old at home and Baraka enjoys how messy of an eater he is. Baraka used to enjoy going to the dog park to socialize, but we have not taken him as often these last two years since we have had a baby. He does get separation anxiety, especially when in a new environment. He can take a few months to adjust to being crated in a new environment. Our female Akita does not tolerate him in the home since she hit maturity, and we now have to keep them separated to avoid Baraka getting hurt in a fight. Baraka deserves to be in a home where he can socialize with the other members of the household at all times, he thrives on attention and stimulation. We are stretched to our limit at the moment and think Baraka could have a better quality of life in a more suitable home.

Name:  Dolly

Email Address:

Dolly is a spayed 4 year old Dachshund/Pitbull mix. She loves to cuddle on the couch! She is anxious at times so whom ever takes her needs to have a lot of time and patience. A fenced in yard or leashed to go outside is a must. She truly is a sweet dog and deserves to have a home where she is not left alone.

With a change in my work schedule I am traveling and the care for Dolly has been left to my older children but they are in school and have after school activities and jobs. It’s not fair to keep her home alone all the time.
