Click on any thumbnail above for information on that dog. In our dogs' bios, you should learn the dog's age, gender, spay/neuter status, vaccination status, weight, color, and whether we will require a fence or if we'll allow a tie-out. We may describe dogs as being low-, moderate-, moderate-high, or high-energy level. Here's a general guideline for what that means: 

If you see a dog that interests you, we welcome your questions about it. However, before adopting a dog, you must complete a Protege Adoption Application. We ask that you have a specific dog in mind when you apply. We do review each application for suitability of adopters and to evaluate whether the dog in which you are interested is appropriate. We contact references. Our adoption fee is $250, which goes toward vet bills for the particular dog, or towards vet bills for other dogs in our program. Visit ourContact Uspage or email with questions about any of our dogs, our program, or our adoption process. 

Once you are familiar with our application and adoption process, and when you find a dog that interests you, fill out a Protege application! Don’t see a dog that interests you today? LIKE us on Facebook to keep up with new arrivals. 

We also post dogs occasionally as courtesy posts for shelters and other rescue groups. You can see these dogs on our Private Referrals page.
