What my friends at OHS say about me:

  • High Energy: I can become easily frustrated if my energy and exercise needs are not met. I will need positive outlets and a calm environment to help me flourish.
  • I will need humans who are dedicated and consistent in redirecting any mouthiness or poor manners onto positive outlets. I promise I am worth it!
  • If OHS were giving out superlative awards, I would of course be the class clown and most likely to outlast Usain Bolt in an endurance competition.
  • I'm a fiend for food! Snacks are a great way to make friends with me and teach me fun tricks.
  • I am just a baby! I will need guidance and patience - plus regular play time with you! Taking a training class will help us bond and help me become a model canine citizen.
  • To prepare for your meet and greet, please take a moment to learn more about puppy ownership here !
  • Resource Guarding: I have a history of guarding my food from other animals.
  • I am part of the Diamond in the Ruff program, which you can learn more about here.

The type of home I'm looking for:

  • I would probably do best in a child-free home due to my energy level and projected size.
  • I may do best in a home where there is a resident dog for me to play with! Just make sure to separate us for feeding.
  • It could be with you! Click here to learn about the adoption process.
  • You can also stock up on food and treats using our online store by clicking here.
  • Click here to sign-up for our Puppy classes! We will help you set your new puppy up for success in the home, as well as teach you how to channel all that energy in a positive direction!

Interested in adopting me?

Adoption meet and greets are done by appointment, but the shelter is open for walk-through viewing. We also have availability each day for walk-in adoptions.

Submit an adoption questionnaire for a pet you are interested in, and we will contact you to set up your meet and greet when you become the next in line.
