Riley - Riley is a 6 year old owner surrender because of some family changes and health issues of the former owners. Riley is up to date on all vaccinations, is heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. Riley has been neutered, stands about 15 inches tall and weighs 52 pounds, about 25 pounds overweight. This extra weight has cause him some skin issues which are being treated with antibiotics. We are testing his thyroid to see if there is an issue with it which may be causing the weight issue. His foster mom has put him on a weight loss diet and exercise. He loves to walk and each day the distance get a little longer. Riley is house and crate trained. He has excellent house manners and is very polite, he also gets along with other dogs and cats.

UPDATE: We’ve had Riley on his new weight loss and exercise plan for 2 ½ months and he has lost 7 pounds, down to 45 at weigh-in this morning. He is on a weight loss food, low-cal treats, and a long walk every day…including the several rainy mornings. His foster mom calls him Smiley Riley because he is always happy and ready for his walk. He loves meeting other dogs and humans on his morning walks.

Adopted March 2017.


Duncan - Duncan is a 12 year old sable and white sheltie who’s family was moving and felt he would not do well in the new location. Duncan is a very well-mannered fellow, he gets along well with other dogs but is a bit concerned about puppies and very small children. Duncan is up to date on all vaccination, heartworm negative, neutered and on heartworm preventive. Duncan is house trained and loves taking walks on his leash. .

Jojo - JoJo was a foundling in the Liberty Hill area. The finder tried for several weeks to find his owner but no luck. JoJo is a sable and white neutered male. He is up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. We are guessing JoJo is about 3 or 4 years old. He stands about 16 inches tall and weighs 37 pounds. He gets along great with other dogs and children. He does not get along with cats or chickens and will not be adopted to a home with either. JoJo is a snuggler and he loves to play with other dogs…often is the instigator of playtime. His favorite pastime is emptying the dog toy box searching for just the right toy.
