Angel is the sweetest girl, with a great temperament. Sometimes these special dogs just get overlooked. We hope you will come meet Angel. Angel may be a bit food aggressive, so if you have another dog, you may need to separate their bowls or feeding areas. We don’t know about house training, and Angel may need instruction; especially in a new home environment
I'm test running a family!
Asher is a 1 to 1.5 year old Mastiff mix. This is a big, strong, handsome boy! He is very sweet, and is good with people and with other dogs. Asher has been around children and adults. He is crate trained, but may need instruction in house training. Asher is quiet, but a cuddle bug when he warms up to you. He is food and treat motivated. Training is 'sit', 'come' and 'shake'. Asher doesn't like loud noises, and he can jump short fences, so be sure you have a tall, secure fence for when he is outdoors.
Ashley is 1 to 1.5 years old. She is a very pretty German Shepherd mix. Her coat coloring is black, brown and white (tri color). Ashley has apparently had puppies within the last couple months. We don't have her puppies, just Ashley. She is dog friendly, but unknown about cats. Ashley is crate trained and very active and playful. She will need playtime at her new home. She will also need instruction in house training. Training includes 'sit', 'come' and 'shake'. Ashley is food and treat motivated. She likes adults and children. You will need a tall, fenced yard for when outdoors, as she can easily jump a 4-5 foot fence.
Barbie is a Boxer/Pit Bull Terrier mix. She is approximately 4 1/2 years of age. Barbie was rescued from Amarillo Animal Management and Welfare, and is here at our shelter, waiting for a forever home. Barbie is a good looking girl, with her brindle colored coat. She does need to be an 'only' dog (she prefers it that way). We don't have a lot of history on Barbie, so she may need instruction in house training in a new environment. We would suggest crating at night and if left alone during the day.
B.B is a 2 year old Chihuahua mix. She was a rescue after her owner passed away. B.B. would be best in a home with no children. She is a bit scared and nippy right now. However, she is friendly in a calm and quiet environment; just shy until she gets to know you.

Caution: If you raise your hand too fast around Bear, he backs up. We think he might have been hit at some point. We hope you will come meet Bear!

Bella is a 6 year old (DOB: 12/1/2015) female German Shepherd mix. Bella was an owner surrender, as her owner brought another dog into the household, and Bella doesn't really do well with other dogs. Bella is pretty girl who appears friendly and very busy in character. Bella is a medium sized girl, not a large Shepherd. Bella seems okay around children and adults. She is a very sweet dog who needs lots of love, comfort and security. If adopting, you need to have time for Bella. Bella does not like being crated and does have a bit of separation anxiety.
Blitzen is a 1 year old, indoor pet. He appears to be Chihuahua mix. Coat coloring is tan. Blitzen is crate trained, quiet, and likes men and women. We think he would be great with kids too. Blitzen isn't housebroken, so will need instruction. He is good with other dogs, but introduce slowly to any other animals.

He's been an indoor/outdoor dog but especially loves being indoors. This guy is active and playful and he is crate trained. Good with other dogs and has lived primary with adults.

Boomer is good with people, but may need older children, rather than toddlers or youngsters. She isn't leash broke and will need a home where she can have some patience, love and training.

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 6.5 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. Once comfortable with you, he likes to cuddle up. The people who surrendered Buddy mentioned bad habits of pulling things off the table: He is a large dog who needs space.

His short coat coloring is tan with white, and a black muzzle. A good-looking boy with those pretty eyes. Capone is an escape artist! He requires a sturdy, tall fence that he can't go over or dig under, and perhaps an enclosed run or outside play area. Capone would benefit from socialization; exercise and obedience training recommended. Do come meet him.

Chani is 3 years old (DOB: 3/7/2019). She is a Shepherd/Aussie mix. She was an owner surrender, due to some separation anxiety. Chani is an indoor pet, crate trained, active and playful and energy plus. She would be best as an 'only' dog as she needs lots of undivided attention. Chani has been trained to sit, stay and come. She loves any type of ball, loves to play outside and really enjoys walks. Chani has been around men and women, but we don't know how she is with children.
This sweet boy is Chico! He is a Chihuahua mix, who is about 2 years of age. He was abandoned at the Prescott West golf course, and is now safe, just down the road, at Amarillo SPCA. Chico is friendly and seems okay with other dogs. He is pretty shy right now and getting comfortable with our volunteers. Chico was out on his own a couple weeks and may be a runner. He will need love and patience. Also a good secure fence when going outside. We hope you will come meet Chico.
Connor is a 3 year old, male Cane Corso Shepherd mix. A Cane Corso Shepherd is an Italian breed of Mastiff. This breed is usually even tempered and very intelligent. Being a breed mix, Connor is a medium to large dog (only 58-60 pounds). He would be best with experienced pet parents, and certainly unafraid around large breed dogs. He is an indoor/outdoor dog, who is active and playful. Connor is good with men, but we don't know if he's been around women and children. Connor is sweet, strong and energetic. He does like to play with large, well made toys. Dogs always need the human reaction, but toys can help reduce boredom as well. Connor needs space for exercise when out of doors, and a securely fenced yard. This dog is probably not an apartment dog, nor one for novice owners. He also may not like being left alone.
Cupid is 11 years old (DOB: 11/29/2010) and is a Pug/Chihuahua mix. He was surrendered to our shelter along with 2 other dogs, due to owner's financial hardships. Cupid is active and playful, with extra spurts of energy. This is a friendly little dog who likes children and adults. Cupid is crate trained. He gets along well with other small dogs. Coat coloring is white with black; just finished his bath in this photo. Cupid needs a new home.
Dante is about 1 year of age. A male Pit Bull Terrier; possibly mix. He was left at the front of our shelter with his crate, food, treats, blankets, toys, harness, leash, etc. We wish we knew his previous name, but we have named him Dante. This is a handsome dog who has been well taken care of. A bit hard to tell from these pictures, but his coat coloring is black and white. The white is on chest and all 4 paws (front and back of paws). Dante seems to really like other dogs and wants to play with them all. He was frightened when first coming out of the crate, but so friendly now. This is a sweet boy that you will want to meet.
Delilah is a Black Lab mix approx. 10 years old (in 2022), 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. She has a short haired coat, gentle eyes and a ready ‘smile’. She is a sweet girl, who loves to cuddle and get attention. Delilah is great with people and will be your best friend/loyal companion. She loves to go for walks, play in pools and her favorite treat just might be peanut butter! Delilah tends to be bossy/dominant with other female dogs. It's difficult to break them up, if they happen to get into a scuffle. She may be ok with older male dogs, or as an only dog in your household. Probably best to go to a home with older children as well. 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 until she can be taught the house rules.
Dexter is Jack Russell or Parsons Russell Terrier. He is 2-3 years of age. This sweet boy is crate trained and likes adults and children. Dexter's coat coloring is mostly white with some black and tan markings. The tips of his ears are brownish tan, and he has black and brown around one eye. Dexter is a small dog who has been both an inside and outside dog, but with his size needs to be mostly indoors with a family to love him.
Ellie is about 9-10 years old and is a Chihuahua/Terrier mix. Her coat coloring is white and gold. This is a sweet, quiet, little girl who needs a home.
Jade is an 9 yr. old (DOB: 6/6/2013) Pit Bull Terrier mix. She has been adopted a couple times, but is now back at our shelter. We will be working on getting her a 'forever home'. Jade is a prettydog; all white except for the orangey/caramel-brown patches on her face and ears. She is well-mannered, and Jade deserves the best of homes. Please make sure that you have a secure fence to keep Jade home and safe. This type breed is known to be escape artists if they are left alone in the back yard for long periods without attention. We don't know Jade's background in house training so she may need supervision in a new home environment. We recommend possibly crating Jade at night and when home alone in the day to help with the process.
Meet Jake! He is a 1 year old Heeler mix. We saved Jake from a kill shelter. He is a good looking boy in his tri colored coat.
Karma is about 1.5 years of age, and a female Corgi/Terrier mix. Karma was an owner surrender, due to moving out of state. Karma's coat coloring is brindle with white. She has short little legs and is very active and playful. Karma is crate trained, we don't know if housebroken. We believe she would be a great pet for adults and children.
Khloe is a 5 year old, female American Staffordshire Terrier. We rescued Khloe from Amarillo-Panhandle Humane Society in 2017, when she was a year old. She is a good looking, white with black spotted dog, who is medium in size. She seems a bit kennel aggressive with other dogs, so should probably be an 'only dog'. Khloe is also picky as to the people she likes. We don't know if she is housebroken. Will certainly need instruction in a new home environment, as she has been at the shelter awhile. This is not a dog for a home with young children.

Her pretty coat coloring is chocolate and white. Lacey is super sweet and cuddly. She gets along with other dogs. Lacey loves toys, but really likes tearing them up, so will need heavy duty toys, and no stuffing for sure. We don't know about house training, and she may need instruction in a new home.
Leela is 2.5 years old (DOB: 3/8/2020), and is a Labrador/Border Collie mix. She weighs 76 pounds. Leela was an owner surrender, due to family needing to move.

We don't have much information on Lizzie, but she appears to be a nice, friendly dog, although a bit timid right now. She may need house training in a new home environment. We hope you will come meet her.
Lola is a 4 1/2 year old (DOB: 11/23/17) Boxer/Labrador mix. She is active and playful and is crate trained. Lola likes children and adults. However, she should be an 'only' dog in the household.
Lola is a Bull Terrier , who is about 4-5 years of age. She was brought to our shelter a few weeks ago, and we really don't have much history on Lola. She has been an only pet, but we think she would be fine with other dogs. We do know she seems to like people, especially women. Lola's coat coloring is black and white. Do come meet this girl!

Owner surrendered. This little pup has loads of energy. Anyone interested in Pearl truly needs to be active and have lots of time to devote to her. Pearl can be ornery and overly playful. Pearl will need lots of chew toys to keep her somewhat occupied. She likes adults and children, but older children would probably be the best match. Pearl may be best as an 'only dog' in the household.

We know he is probably missing a loving home. Puggie is a 2 year old Chiweenie. Coat coloring is brown, with white on chest and a foot. Puggie may need to be an 'only' dog in the household, but that may be too soon for us to know for sure.
Ranger is a 1.5 year old male Labrador mix. He was an owner surrender; too much to handle. Coat coloring is black with white and some black/gray spots. Ranger has been an indoor/outdoor dog. He is good with other dogs. Housebroken but will need some instruction in a new home environment. Ranger is very active and strong, but a timid dog. He is best with adults; questionable about children, until Ranger gets more training. He does do 'sit', 'come' and 'stay', but doesn't listen well. Ranger just needs the right person to train him a bit more. Ranger loves to play Frisbee. He will need a secure fenced yard when going out of doors.
Rocky is a Border Collie mix who is 7 years old. He was an owner surrender. He appears to be a very sweet, friendly dog, who is medium in size. Rocky is not being nice to other dogs, therefore he needs to be an 'only' dog.

Samson is a handsome Border Collie/Great Pyrenees mix. He is about 2 years old. Samson is a sweetheart, but doesn't do well with children. He will snap and growl at them, showing his teeth. He is great with adults; sweet, loyal and a little protective. He forms an attachment quickly and wants to be wherever you are. If you place his bed next to your bed, he will spend the night, without accident and be ready to go out first thing in the morning. Samson knows a few commands; come, stay, no, etc. He warms to praise, but is also a little stubborn at times. He would be a great companion to someone, or to a couple who have time for him. He doesn't really like being left alone, so best to crate if you will be away for any length of time. He does need a secure, fenced yard when out of doors. He would love it if you would play and spend time with him in the yard.
This is Sassy, an 8 year old Chihuahua mix. She is a sister to Lexi. They have been together their entire life and would be great if adopted together, but not a must. Sassy has a pretty tan and white coat. She prefers being around women and will need someone with lots of patience and love to adopt her. Probably not so good in a home with children.
Shep is a fluffy, black and white, male, Border Collie mix about 6 years old. He’s a super friendly guy with an adorable face with such happy eyes! Shep has a thick, medium length coat you can sink your hands into and will benefit from regular grooming. He’s best buds with Taz, who is here with Shep after their owner needed to surrender them due to declining health. They are bonded and we are looking for a forever home they can go to together. We think it’s best they stay away from chickens (and perhaps other livestock) as they caused some casualties in their past lives with poultry!
We would like you to meet SKYE! We think she is about 2 years old. According to the Dog Scanner App, Skye is a mix of multiple breeds: American Pit Bull Terrier 21.6 %, Rat Terrier 15.9%, Brazilian Terrier 11.8% and Chihuahua 10.7%. Not sure what a DNA test would show. Skye was rescued off the streets in July 2021, by a woman who kept her awhile, then brought to Amarillo SPCA. She was an indoor/outdoor pet and is crate trained. She is doing fair at our shelter, but somewhat terrified of everyone. Also frightened of loud noises. If you are interested in Skye, she will need multiple visits before she could go home with anyone. She will need lots of time, patience, love and socialization. But this good-looking dog does need a loving, 'forever' home.
Stella is 5 years of age. Her previous owners said Stella is Labrador/Pit mix. She was an owner surrender, as Stella seems to have separation anxiety and shouldn't be left alone. Shella can be a bit destructive when all alone as she finds things to do that she shouldn't. She is housebroken and good with other dogs. Stella likes children and adults. She can jump some fences, so will need a good, tall, secure fence when spending any time out of doors. Stella is a black beauty and loves attention. For treats, Stella loves cheese and hot dogs. She also likes going for walks on a leash, and car rides.
Meet Stryker! Stryker is a Bull Terrier cross, who is about 5 - 5.5 yrs old. You can't help but smile when you look at this cute face! Those floppy ears, that big black nose and gorgeous blue eyes. He's been with us for 3 1/2 year and we think he's long overdue for his forever home. His short-haired coat is a mix of white, brown and black with a white tipped tail. He likes to run and play and would make a great jogging or walking buddy. He adores being brushed and snuggles in close to you so you can reach every bit of him and also offer some welcome tummy rubs. He rests calmly and gently by your side but is happy to get in close, even on your lap, if you allow it. He’s ready for a family…come meet him!
Taz is a spunky little guy who is an Australian Cattle Dog (Heeler) mix about 6 years old. He’s got a short- haired black coat with a splash of white down his neck and chest. He’s a sweet, friendly, happy fellow that loves to hang out with his best friend Shep. They were both surrendered due to their owner’s declining health. Since Taz and Shep are bonded buddies, we will adopt these special guys out together to a forever home. We think it’s best they stay away from chickens (and perhaps other livestock) as they caused some casualties in their past lives with poultry!
Tessa is a 6-year-old female Husky mix. Her coat is white with light brown spots. Tessa is a beautiful, sweet dog who wants a forever home and family. She likes other dogs, but we don't know about cats. Tessa has been raised around adults but may have a tendency to be frightened of strangers. She may need a little time to bond. Once bonded, she is very calm and relaxed. If you have children, you may want to bring them if you come to the shelter to visit Tessa, to see how they do together. We would recommend crating Tessa at night and if left alone during the day; at least until she is accustomed to a new home environment.
Toni is a 4 year old (DOB 3/5/2018) female, blue Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador mix. Toni was an owner surrender, due to moving. Toni's coat coloring is gray blue. Toni is friendly, playful, energetic and likes to give kisses. This is a very strong dog so children could probably not handle her well at all. We do know she likes adults and children. Her previous owners said Toni is sweet and lovable . Toni knows commands 'sit' and 'stay'. She may need instruction in house training.
