German Shepherd Dog (short coat) :: Male :: Young

Apollo is a 1-2 year old German Shepherd.  After being found abandoned at a food mart, Apollo was brought to our shelter.  No results on searching for his owners, therefore Apollo is available for adoption.  He's an extra large, handsome guy who would be perfect for a family.  Apollo is fun, friendly and absolutely loves to play fetch or catch; just a true lover of the tennis balls or other type of balls.  He never takes his eye off the whereabouts of the ball.  


Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat) :: Female :: Young

Aria is a pretty Catahoula Leopard dog.  She is about 5 years old and weighs 52 pounds.  Aria's owners were moving and surrendered her to Amarillo Humane Society.  We rescued Aria from there.  She is now at the Amarillo SPCA and will be until she is adopted.  Aria is active and playful and likes children and adults.  She is somewhat competitive for attention when around other dogs.  Would be best as an 'only' dog in your home.  Per the previous owner, Aria is a very loving dog.  She likes chew toys, and may need instruction in house training.

Baby Boy is a Cow dog/ Husky Mix who is 9 yrs. old. He was owner surrender. Baby Boy has a beautiful multicolor coat which is very soft. He has 1 blue eye and 1 brown eye. Baby Boy loves to ride in the car and will try to drive if not restrained. He is a sweet, loving and playful dog. He is a senior fellow, but he's still active and loves to play fetch! He is working on reducing his weight, but has a bit more to go; that just means there's more of him to love!  He will need weight management attention in his new home with low cal food and more exercise.  He's ready for his retirement home with a loving family.  Baby Boy seems to prefer adults and can be nippy and sometimes snaps at young or even older kids. He may need some reinstruction on housetraining as he was housebroken when coming to us.

Baby Boy

Border Collie / Mixed (short coat) :: Female :: Adult

Baby Girl is a Border Collie mix that was abandoned at the shelter.  We believe she is approximately 8 yrs old.  Baby Girl is a good looking girl that enjoys being around people.  She is a sweetheart and needs a forever home!  Baby Girl may require instruction in house training, as we don't know her history.  Because she is an adult female, this should not be difficult. We recommend possibly crating her at night and if left alone during the day.

Baby Girl

Bacon is an 8 month old pup! He's a Chiweenie. Bacon was an owner surrender and he now wants a new home and family. Bacon is a very sweet boy, a little shy but he warms up fast. His coat coloring is a reddish brown and we think he's quite handsome.

Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat) :: Female :: Baby

Boomer is 8 months old (DOB: 10/7/19).  She is a light brown/brindle colored, female Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier mix.  Boomer has been in foster care until recently and is now at our shelter.

Bubba has somewhat of a baby face and is a very sweet boy! He loves to play and particularly likes rope and rubber toys.  Bubba is quite strong and would need a capable owner.  Considering Bubba's history, he may be unhappy being around certain dogs, and he seems a bit dog aggressive at times.  If you have another dog, you may want to bring it along for a visit with Bubba. Bubba will need some supervision in house training. We recommend possibly crating at night and if left alone during the day.  Bubba will also need a secure fence in his new home.

Buddy is a Great Dane mix, possibly some Shepherd or Lab in the breed mix.  He is 5 years old (DOB:  Sept 2015).  Buddy was an owner surrender.  Buddy is good with other dogs; however usually prefers being around female dogs.  As far as people are concerned, he seems to prefer women, once he warms up to them.  Buddy is a big, shy boy who probably needs a calm environment, with no small children, and no stressful situations or surroundings.  His expression looks a little sad, but once comfortable with you, likes to cuddle up.  The people who surrendered Buddy mentioned bad habits of digging and chewing, and pulling things off the table: He is a large dog who needs space

Cesar is about 3 years of age. (DOB 3/5/17). He is possibly a Pit Bull Terrier/Weimaraner mix. Cesar is a handsome boy, with his grey/blue coat coloring.  A sweet, little playful guy for sure.  He enjoys playing with the small dogs at our shelter. A bit too actively aggressive around some larger dogs. We don't know how he is with children or with cats.  He needs a good home with someone who understands Pit Bull Terriers.


Border Collie / Australian Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat) :: Male :: Adult

Charlie is a 3 year old,(DOB: 1/1/19) Border Collie/Aussie mix. He's a handsome boy who was an owner surrender to our shelter. He's friendly, active and playful and is crate trained. Charlie likes other dogs and came in with another dog, named Junior.  Looks to have a tendency to dig and damage fences and most likely get out of the yard.  He would benefit from an active family that can spend time with him; to go on regular walks, provide physical exercise (daily play time!) as well as mental stimulation (training sessions, toys).  There is also the possibility his behavior is due to mild separation anxiety.  May be best to crate when not at home until he learns the rules of the house.  Would also need secure fencing.  Do come out and meet them.


Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat) :: Male :: Baby

Chico appears to be about 2 months old and possibly Chihuahua/Terrier mix. Someone called him a little mutt pup! His coloring is black with a white neck and chest (spotted with black spots), and 4 brown/tan legs. He is adorable!  Chico is a hyper/happy pup who loves people (adults and children). However, being a pup, he's a little nippy when being playful, so may not be best with babies or toddlers.  Chico absolutely loves playing with toys; any and all. He hasn't yet received all immunizations, nor been for his Vet visit.  He can be adopted, but can't go home with you right yet.  


Shar Pei / Mixed (short coat) :: Male :: Adult

Dallas is a brindle and white Shar Pei mix.  He is 2 years of age (DOB 8/7/18) and weighs 42 pounds.  Dallas is a big, kind of goofy dog, who likes people.  He's a handsome pup in his brindle coat. Housebroken and crate trained.  He is active and playful, but rather a quiet dog. He does appear to be a bit food aggressive around other dogs, and has a bad habit of chewing, but is a great dog.  Dallas appears to do best with adults, and may prefer women owners. 


Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat) :: Female :: Senior

Delilah is a 8 1/2 year old Black Lab mix that was given to us by her owner who was moving into a home without a yard.  She wanted Delilah to have a new home where she could exercise and play. Delilah is a big girl.  She has a big head with endearing eyes/expressions that you have to see in person!  Delilah is friendly and loving  with people and will be your best friend/loyal companion. She does tend to be bossy/dominant with other female dogs. It's difficult to break them up, if they happen to get into a scuffle. It may be best if Delilah is the 'only' dog in your household. Delilah is apparently housetrained but we do recommend supervision in a new home, possibly crating her at night and when she is home alone in the day. 


American Bulldog (short coat) :: Female :: Senior

Dutchess is a 10 yr. old English Bulldog (possible mix).  She was an owner surrender.  They had adopted Dutchess from SPCA in 2014, but they are now unable to keep her as their living conditions have changed.  Dutchess is a sweet, lovable, friendly dog!!  She is good with kids.  She should be housetrained, but we  recommend supervision in a new home environment.  If you are a fan of this type of breed, you need to come visit Dutchess. 


Pit Bull Terrier / Border Collie / Mixed (short coat) :: Female :: Adult

Ebbie is about 6 years old and has been with us since about 1 year of age!  Ebbie is an undiscovered gem of a dog!  She may be middle aged,  but she has lots of spunk and energy! She would make a great walking buddy; she walks obediently on a leash, sticking by your side. Her coat is mostly black with splashes of white  on her chest, face and toes, plus an adorable pink splotch on her nose. Her short haired fur is easy to care for, but having a black coat means you are often overlooked in a kennel of many dogs.  She’s a medium sized gal and is some sort of Pit Bull Terrier mixed breed. As with most of the dogs, when you visit them in the kennel they are very high energy.  Ebbie seems to bounce off the walls with excitement to meet you. Outside of the kennel, one on one, Ebbie is a gentle, calm, sweetheart.  She is very attentive and eager to stay close by you, ready for some loving attention.  She sits patiently by your side and enjoys having her head rubbed, being brushed and petted.  She has kind soulful eyes that sparkle with youthful joy and also years of wisdom.

Gomer is a Hound mix who appears to be about 1 1/2 years of age.  We rescued him from Amarillo Animal Management & Welfare .  Gomer weighs 43.5 pounds and his coat is tricolor (mostly white with brown).  He seems pretty friendly and he would like a 'forever' home. We don't have history on Gomer so unsure about house training.  We would suggest crating at night and if left alone during the day.  At least until he is accustomed to his new surroundings. 


Boxer / Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat) :: Female :: Adult

Harlow is a Black Lab, Boxer mix, we believe.  She is now about 6 years old. Harlow came to us from  animal control in another town in July or August of 2015, as her time was up there. Harlow is a very pretty dog that you need to see in person. She is playful and friendly, good with people and other dogs.  Harlow does love to jump up and give hugs; please keep this in mind if you have small children. We don't know Harlow's house training background, so she will need supervision.  We recommend possibly crating Harlow at night or if left alone during the day. 


Labrador Retriever / Rottweiler / Mixed (short coat) :: Female :: Young

Izzy is a 2 year old, Labrador Retriever/Rottweiler mix. Izzy is crate trained, and is an active and playful girl. Sweet, gentle, cuddly, wiggly & friendly seems to fit her.  Izzy has a moderate energy level and is good with kids and adults.  She would be a good family dog.  Izzy was a bit shy at first, especially around new things.  Her only bad habit to watch for may be bit of digging.

Jaeger is a 1 1/2 year old Shepherd mix.  His coat coloring is black and tan.  We rescued Jaeger from Animal Control in Canyon.  


Labrador Retriever / Border Collie / Mixed (short coat) :: Male :: Young

Jake is a fun loving lab & border collie mix.  He’s about 1.5 year’s old and has a happy-go-lucky look on his face.  He’s got a short haired coat that’s mostly black with some cute white markings on his face, chest and even ‘socks’ on his feet.  His family brought him in since their somewhat-aggressive cat disliked him.  He likes cats, but is interested in playing and chasing them and not all cats appreciate that.  His family has lots of great things to share about him.  He is very smart and learns skills quickly with the use of treats.  He already knows sit, stay, come, shake and more!  He loves toys, balls and frisbees and a good chew bone. Loves to snuggle on the sofa, is extremely affectionate, enjoys belly rubs and giving kisses! Everyone is his friend! He has lots of energy, as most young dogs do, and will need daily exercise and would love to be your walking/jogging buddy.  He will also benefit from mental exercise with continued training and social interaction.  He’s been an indoor pet, with outdoor exercise and a large fenced in yard would be great for him. He’s had some crate training.


Boxer / Mixed (short coat) :: Male :: Young

Junior is a a 2 year old (DOB:3/20/19) (Boxer mix. He was an owner surrender. Another very friendly dog. He's quiet, crate trained and likes to be around children and adults. He is a bit shy or timid at first. Looks to have a tendency to dig and damage fences and most likely get out of the yard.  He would benefit from an active family that can spend time with him; to go on regular walks, provide physical exercise (daily play time!) as well as mental stimulation (training sessions, toys).  There is also the possibility his behavior is due to mild separation anxiety.  May be best to crate when not at home until he learns the rules of the house.  Would also need secure fencing.



American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat) :: Female :: Adult

Khloe is a 5 year old, female American Staffordshire Terrier.  We rescued Khloe from Amarillo-Panhandle Humane Society.  She is a good looking, white with black spotted, dog.  Khloe is very sweet and is small to medium in size; and she is full grown.  She seems a bit kennel aggressive with other dogs, so should probably be an 'only dog'.  Khloe appears to like people and rides okay in a vehicle.  We don't know if she is housebroken.
