Birdie - D2022525

Male Labrador Retriever/Mix Large 2 years Dog.

Hi. I am Birdie. Some folks say I'm shy. I think I'm expected to act like other Labs, that's part of my genes. But, right now I don’t. Don’t get me wrong, I would like to be like my sister Bobbie, you know, bouncy, perky, always up for life’s hustle and bustle. I'm more reserved.
So, I have been thinking, a little canine self-diagnosis if you will. I was born mid-October 2021; then taken to a shelter, and Jan 2022 we came to St. Francis. In our first 3 months, my sister and I were living in our third shelter. In February 2022 Bobbie was adopted. Another change and now I am by myself. As of this writing I am a year old and feel like I was never given a chance to be a puppy, to form an attachment with a loving human in a forever home.
Don’t think I am not appreciative of the people at St Francis CARE. I am glad to have a place that is safe. I am treated well and I really like playing with the other dogs, But, I think I would blossom if I lived in a trusting stable home where I was appreciated for me.
So maybe I am a little shy, a little reserved, but, I bet that would change if I was with my own hooman.

  • Mike - D20221004

    Male German Shepherd Dog/Mix Large 1 year Dog.

    Hi! I'm Mike. I was born at St Francis 18 months ago. They tell me I’m a German Shepherd mix. I'm shy & timid at first. But, it doesn’t take me long to warm up to someone. I just need someone with the patience to let me learn to love them at my own pace. Once I get to know you a little, I’m good for some snuggles. I also like to go for walks and maybe even jog if you'd like.
    I’ve lived my whole life at St Francis. Well, all except the 3 months I went to live at the Marion prison. While there I was so busy learning manners & meeting people I didn't have time to be scared. I even earned my K-9 Good Citizen certificate. That means I know how to walk nicely on a leash, sit, lie down, stay, and come when called. I take treats like a gentleman. Boy do I love treats! I don’t beg for them or take them without permission but if you want to share a hot dog with me I wouldn’t turn you down.
    I'd really love a forever home. But, if you've got what it takes to be my in-between (foster), I'd be more than happy to live with you for a while. If you'd like to meet me I’ll be hanging out here at St Francis waiting.

  • Harrison - D20221123

    Male Boxer/Mix Large 2 years Dog.

    Hello, My name is Harrison.

    Now that my "wheelie" brother from another mother, Luke has found his forever home in Florida, I thought I would see if my people are out there.

    I'm not one to brag. But, you know, people talk when they think you're not listening. Boy have I heard some things about me! Let me tell you a few:

    "Harrison is one of the sweetest, most loving dogs I've worked with. He loves to snuggle but is also hell on wheels! (in the best way)."
    "When Harrison is out of his wheels and running around the play yard, he would give Peter Cottontail a run for his money with the way he hops."

    "Harrison is a lover and very smart. Some of his favorite things are food, outside walks in his chair, food, people, food, attention, food, and the never missing stuffed animal he carries."

    Now for the boring stuff.

    November 2022 could have been better for me. I was found in a ditch by a caring soul after being hit by a car. That's when St Francis stepped in to provide my medical care, rehab, and love. Lots of love!!

    I like most dogs. But, I may be just a tad too interested in cats.

    Got food? I'll train with you. Remember someone says I was smart.

    Got kids? I'll play with them. I love little hoomans... As long as I get some exercise. I'm a big boy and without the use of my back legs, I sometimes can't stop once I get going. I could knock little ones down by accident.

    Got time and patience? This 55 pound, 2-year-old, proud Boxer needs some embarrassing help. You see, I need help to ... ... ... pee n poop. It's not hard to help me. My friends here at St Francis will be happy to teach you, and with practice you'll soon be a pro!

    I have so much love to give, sometimes I think my heart will explode if I don't get a family of my own. I already have wheels that i LOVE and if you take me home, you get to take those, too.

    Got questions? Have your people call my people.

    Can't resist me? Fill out an application and let's meet.

  • Nova - D20231059

    Female Pit Bull Terrier/Mix Medium 2 years Dog.

    Nova is not just a name; but a testament to her resilience as the shining star of St. Francis! This 2-year-old female pit bull mix arrived at our shelter in August, a survivor of severe neglect. Despite her challenging past, Nova has emerged stronger, healthier, and ready to light up a new home with her playful energy.
    If you're a fan of fetch, Nova is the perfect playmate. Watching her chase after a ball with pure delight is not only heartwarming but also a reminder of the transformative power of love and care.
    This charming girl has mastered the art of taking treats with gentle precision. Nova's loving personality shines through in every interaction, making her not just a pet but a cherished family member waiting to be discovered.
    Nova is potty-trained, though we always remind those who adopt dogs who have spent time in shelters or may have dealt with neglect, that they may need a refresher course as shelter life is very different as they adjust to a new home and schedule.
    Nova has shown compatibility with dogs of similar size during her time at the shelter, however we always recommend a meet and greet as well as a home visit for potential adopters who already have other pets in the home. Each furry friend has their own unique personality, and we want to ensure a harmonious home for all.
    As you consider welcoming Nova into your home, remember that you're not just adopting a dog; you're providing a second chance for a beautiful soul who has triumphed over adversity.

    Female Terrier/Mix Medium 1 year Dog.

    Got a minute? I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself.

    My name is Circe and I am a one year old female terrier mix.

    I am a lover and extremely playful but I must admit I have alot of strength in this 46 pound body.

    I am extremely toy and treat motivated so rumor is I should be very easy trained if you are willing to devote the time and attention to make me the best I can be.

    I realize I am a lucky canine as I was saved at the last minute from a local kill shelter and I am very grateful for the wonderful care I get at SFC but it's still not my own family.

    Think you might be the right home for me? Get your application in so we can make a love connection.

  • Cora - D2024014

    Female Pit Bull Terrier/Mix Large Adult Dog.

    Meet Cora. She was brought in as a stray with an injured leg.

    Sadly her owner never came forward to claim this sweet girl.

    Cora seems to prefer female humans as she is often fearful of men.

    She likes to play with other dogs but she can be overwhelming to some.

    We believe this smart girl will be easily house trained if kept on a schedule as she already keeps a clean kennel during the day.

    Leash walking is a work in progress but she listens well so with time and patience she will learn this and so much more.

    We are going to recommend older children as Cora doesn't realize her size and could accidentally knock a small child over.

    Please complete an application.
    Cora is waiting.

  • Lance - D2021650

    Male Beagle/Mix Large 2 years Dog.

    This handsome boy is Lance. He's a 54 lb, young adult, male, Beagle mix
    He originally came to St Francis in Sept of 2021 as a young pup. Adopted in Oct of 2021. As his new family grew he didn't understand that tiny hoomans require different interactions. Consequently he was returned in Jan of 2024.

    Lance is looking for an individual or family that can meet his energy needs. Someone who likes to take long walks in the mountains, on the beach or, heck, just down the sidewalk.

    He started scent training with his prior family. He is good with cats and other dogs, and was fully housetrained.

    It is recommended he live in a home with no children under 10 because in his exuberance he could accidently knock them down.

    With him being so smart, active, and still quite young he might make a great hunting companion.

    If you think you might be the right owner for Lance, submit your application today
