  • Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Mixed
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Vaccinations up to date

Mugsy is a young, boisterous pup who needs someone who will entertain his level of energy - both human and dog! He loves other dogs and we feel he may do best with another one in the home who matches his energy. Young kids may be out though, as he is a bull in a China shop at times.Mugsy is a puppy, so he does have a lot of learning to do! Luckily he comes with post-adoption training at Outbound Hounds Pit CLASS!To apply to adopt Mugsy: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/ View full description »

Snickers

  • Plott Hound, Mixed

  • Vaccinations up to date
  • Prefers home without dogs

Snickers is a playful one year old Plott Hound who enjoys chasing a good tennis ball (or 3) as much as he loves affection from his people. If he’s not chasing down balls or working on his treat puzzles, you can find him snuggled up with his person, dishing out dog kisses in exchange for noggin pats and belly rubs.Snickers is an active dog, and while he could definitely double as a part-time couch potato, he’d really enjoy a home where he will get regular exercise. He loves walks and with those long hound legs, he’d make a great running/hiking partner with some practice.Snickers must be the only pet in the home, and would do best with older kids due to his playful puppy excitability. He’s as sweet as his name, and a goofball at heart. Looking to adopt? Grab a Snickers!Adoptable Snickers would like to talk about his love language, hoping that this guideline will help him find the right home:Words of affirmation: “Great job catching that tennis ball!”Acts of service: “Let me get that tennis ball for you.”Receiving gifts: “I brought you tennis balls.”Quality time: “Let’s play fetch with your tennis ball.”Physical touch: “I will give you noggin pats while you chew your tennis ball.To apply to adopt Snickers: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/ View full description »

Meet adoptable Winter!! She is a total cuddle bug and LOVES people, but not a fan of other doggos or critters, so she needs to be an only pet! She SO SOFT and will find a way into your lap (and heart). At training class with Outbound Hounds we are focusing on concentrating when there are other dogs around…while she is very smart and knows several commands, she gets distracted when she sees other dogs. She is more motivated by love and affection than by food/treats. She is moderately active, and will stop to ask for some pets and attention during walks ? all this to say, you’ll love her.Written by her Handsome Dan's Rescue Shelter Dog Enrichment Specialist, you can email Randelle at randelle.l.boots@gmail.com with any questions.To apply to adopt Winter: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/ View full description »

Nikko is a big brindle guy. He is about eight and simply a goof. You would never guess his age by his personality. We suspect he will get along well with other dogs and all people, he is so gentle even with his size. He is a Cane Corso / Mastiff mix and however big you think he is by th photos, I can assure you he is BIGGER! Haha! While Nikko does get along with other dogs, he has occasionally had trouble sharing his toys, so we prefer for him to be the only dog in the home.Nikko is potty trained, and comes with FREE group training class!For questions about Nikko, please contact Jen at jleeramos928@yahoo.com.To apply to adopt: http://www.handsomedansrescue.org/adoption-application/Thank you for choosing rescue.
