Blynken

Wynken and Blynken one night came into the Cochrane shelter,
they followed a trail of milk bones ,
into a sea of freeze dried liver.
"Where are you going, and what do you wish?"
The shelter staff asked the three.
"We have come to beg for the herring fish
and maybe new homes for us three!
Tummies that grumble and growl have we!"
Said Wynken and Blynken.

The shelter staff cuddled and sang them a song,
As they searched for their forever homes,
Teaching them tricks and basic commands,
Helping and watching them grow!
The little pups slowly came out of their shells
And started to grow big and strong!
"Your new families will train you and teach you life skills—
They’ll adopt you before too long";
So were the wishes of volunteers and staff,
For Wynken and Blynken.

Hi there, my name is Pyper! If you can believe it, I came into the shelter as a stray! While I’m sad no one claimed me, I’m excited to head out on a journey to my new home.

I am also looking for a home with older children who will make sure I learn all my manners and basic commands as I am basically starting from scratch! If you have the breed knowledgeable home I’ve been looking for, don’t wait and meet me today!

Kramer

Hi there, I'm Kramer! I am one good looking boy who came into the shelter as a stray. My perfect home would be patient with me as I am an adolescent male in need of training! I get along well with other dogs and had been enjoying some play time with some of my dog friends here at the shelter... but those friends have found their forever homes and I am still here! I probably should not go to home with cats - they are way too much fun to chase! I can go to a home with older teens, I love my things so much I don't want to share them so the little guys probably aren't the best match for me. I am looking forward to a fun and active family who will take me hiking and camping in the mountains! Do you have my perfect forever home? Meet me today!

Blossom

Blossom

Meet gorgeous Blossom, a terrific girl with tons of personality waiting for her new home. She originally came to us as a stray and we're shocked that such a terrific girl is still here, we know she'd make an excellent addition to your home with a structured and active lifestyle. Blossom LOVES other dogs and is in multiple play groups here at the shelter. She can be a little exuberant when she first meets them though so other active, happy-go-lucky dogs with similar play styles would be the best match for her. Blossom can go to a family with older teens who would make sure she gets lots of love and exercise - hiking, jogging, agility, all of that fun stuff would be right up her alley!

Are you the perfect match for this great girl? Come down and meet her today!

Sometimes a picture just isn't enough.   See more of Blossom's personality in her YouTube video!
