Adoptable Medium Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shots

Barney & Betty were found as loose dogs together. They remain unclaimed and are now available for adoption. Barney weighs approx. 55 lbs. He loves attention from people and hangs out with Betty but can be selective around other dogs he meets, Did we mention how much he LOVES people? He truly does! Update: since we had Barney neutered on 8/22, he’s so much calmer and totally ignores other dogs now. He’s a love bug just waiting to find his home. Barney is a good example of how a hyperactive male can calm down and be so much more chilled out and relaxed after being neutered! He’s still adorable and sweet but so much gentler and easier to handle and doesn’t react to other dogs now! Please ask to meet!

For adoption inquiries, please contact Kelly, our Adoption Coordinator, at or inquire directly via Petfinder. We are a volunteer-based humane society; please be patient with our response time to your inquiries. We are not able to assess dogs with cats since we are a small, rural shelter set up for dog intake only. We may be able to provide an opinion on how a dog may get along with cats, but behavior in your home is unknown until they would be properly introduced under supervision. For inquiries regarding a dog’s behavior with small children, the majority of our shelter dogs are unclaimed strays & we have limited or no history. We always recommend a meet and greet with our dogs available for adoption.

Taylor County is rescue friendly! If you are a rescue, please contact our Rescue Coordinator, Diana, at
