Dante

Breed: PitMix
Age: 1 years
Adoption Location: South Brevard Animal Care Center

Comments: The exact details of Dante’s past are uncertain, but one can be sure that it was predominantly brutal.  He is a product of the despicable sport of dog fighting.  When Dante was found, he was shy and emaciated, and his face and arms bore the scars of countless attacks.  Because most of his teeth had been broken or filed down, it is likely that he was used as a “bait dog” rather than one expected to fight back.  Fortunately for him, his hard-luck tale drew the attention of the Paws & Stripes® recruiters and he was taken to the Brevard County Jail for obedience training and behavior modification.  Dante made remarkable progress over the eight weeks there, having no problems training next to his canine classmates.  He learned all of the basic commands and even learned to play like a dog (he loves his Jolly Ball).  Now he is ready for a home of his own.  Dante is in need of someone who is familiar with the breed that can spoil him rotten and help him complete his transformation from pauper to prince.  Could you be the one?

Bernie

Breed: Hound Mix
Age: 9 years
Adoption Location: South Brevard Animal Care Center

Comments:  Don’t let the droopy face and white muzzle lead you to false assumptions – Bernie is as spry as a 2-year-old! He has no problems keeping up with his four-legged friends on the play yard, and he proved that older dogs can learn new tricks by recently earning his Canine Good Citizenship. In addition to having brains and brawn, Bernie’s got a soft side, too. He’s a great kisser who enjoys lazy days and belly rubs. Bernie may look like an old geezer, but he has years of life ahead of him, and he would love nothing more than to spend those years by your side.

Ginger

Breed: Shepherd / Cattle Dog mix
Age: 2 years
Adoption Location: Central Brevard Humane Society

Comments:  Meet Ginger, a brazen beauty who is back up for grabs after a recent failed adoption.  The family, unfortunately, was unable to care for her anymore, but they did say that she was a very good girl while they had her in their home.  Because she previously completed the Paws & Stripes® Program, she already knows all of her obedience commands.  However, she does not like the company of other dogs and would have to be the only pet in the household.  If you think Ginger could be your forever friend, she is available to go home with you today!

 

Sunny

Sex: Female
Age: 5 years
Breed: Black Mouth Cur mix
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: North Brevard Animal Care Center

Comments: Howdy, folks! This ol’ gal is Sunny, a Black Mouth Cur appropriately named for her sunny disposition. She is a retired hunting dog who is looking for a loving family to call her own. Although Sunny is as sweet as a sugar plum, old habits die hard, so she needs to live in a home without any small animals (those pesky, little critters are so darn fun to chase!). Instead, she will gladly settle for a runaway tennis ball as her quarry. Sunny will be ready to ride off into the sunset with you after her September graduation.

 

Nathan

Sex: Male
Age: 1 year
Breed: Plott Hound mix
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: North Brevard Animal Care Center

Comments: If I had to describe Nathan in one word, I would have to say he is carefree, energetic, dapper, intelligent, friendly, and comical. Was that over the limit? Anyway, Nathan is all those and much, much more! He has an infectious grin and an unmatched charisma that will brighten even the darkest day. Whether he is chasing bubbles during play time or showing off his exceptional obedience skills, Nathan is sure to make you a forever fan!


Paige

Sex: Female
Age: 1 year
Breed: American Staffordshire mix
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: North Brevard Animal Care Center

Comments: Paige is a beautiful, young girl whose heritage appears to be a little bit of American Staffordshire Terrier mixed with a whole lot of snuggle bug! When the opportunity presents itself, Paige will wriggle into your lap and practically melt into you! She loves affection! Paige also loves running laps in the play yard with her other furry friends at the Paws & Stripes® Program. Make no bones about it, this future Canine Good Citizen is your match made in heaven!

 

 

 

 

Goku

Goku grass

Sex: Male
Age: 2 year
Breed: Hound / Labrador
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: South Brevard Animal Care Center

Comments:  As unique as his name, Goku is one-of-a-kind!  His brilliant copper coat evenly matches his vibrant personality, and his zest for life is indisputable.  When he’s not rough-housing with his four-legged friends, you can find Goku practicing his obedience commands or soaking up the adorations of his trainer.  Whatever he may be doing, you can be sure that he’s smiling from ear to ear.  He seems to know that he’s been given a second chance and he’s not about to waste it.  In return for a loving home, Goku promises years of unwavering devotion – a pretty fair trade if I do say so myself!

 

 

 

 

 

Sweet Pea

Sweet PeaSex: Female
Age: 1 year
Breed: Boxer Mix
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: South Brevard Animal Care Center

Comments: It’s hard to believe that a dog like Sweet Pea waited at the shelter for nearly a month without any potential adopters!  She is an absolutely fabulous girl who loves other dogs and humans of all sizes.  In fact, Sweet Pea recently attended an event where she was smothered by the affections of several small children – and she relished every moment!  This charismatic canine is a true people-pleaser and is destined to be a superstar in her new home.

Breed: CurMix
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: South Brevard Animal Care Center

Comments:  This little space cadet is named Luna.  She is currently completing a short stint in the Brevard County Jail after making some poor decisions in life.  Well on her way to being rehabilitated, Luna is ready for a fresh start.  By the end of her sentence, she will have mastered her Basic Obedience skills and earned a certificate from the AKC for Canine Good Citizenship.  Then she can prove what a good girl she is.  Unfortunately, the cats of Brevard County have collectively filed for a restraining order against her, so Luna must go to a feline-free home.  She looks forward to meeting you soon!

 

 

 

Ruby

RubySex: Female
Age: 1 year
Breed: Cur Mix
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: North Brevard Animal Care Center

Comments:  When Ruby was selected to participate in the Paws & Stripes® Program, she was meek and unrefined.  However, like most gems, all Ruby needed was a little polishing.  In just a few short weeks, her confidence has blossomed and her inner radiance has emerged.  Ruby now looks forward to a bright future in which she will be a treasured member of a deserving forever family.

Breed: American Staffordshire mix
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: South Brevard Animal Care Center

Comments:  This fun-loving pooch is named Melvin, and he’s eager to share some great times and sloppy kisses with you!  He has an outstanding temperament that will win you over in seconds.  Not only does Melvin befriend every dog he meets, but he is equally as jovial around new people (even children).  Some of his favorite activities include long walks, splashing in his doggie pool, and eating ice cubes.  If Melvin sounds like the guy for you, you should start his adoption process right away – he won’t last long!

 

 

Maxine

MaxineSex: Female
Age: 6 year
Breed: American Staffordshire mix
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: South Brevard Animal Care Center

Comments:  Maxine is a 6-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix who aspires to be a professional couch potato.  Her resume is already filled with accomplishments and positive attributes.  For instance, she was the first canine cadet in this class to successfully complete AKC’s Canine Good Citizen test!  She is quiet, polite, tidy, and does not appear to have any bad habits.  Thus, she would be a great asset to any adopter.  Maxine hopes to find permanent placement on your sofa as soon as a position opens up.

 

 

Piglet

PigletSex: Female
Age: 2 year
Breed: Hound Mix
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: SPCA of North Brevard

Comments:  Her name may be Piglet, but she is a princess through and through!  Dainty and dignified, she has already made loyal subjects of everyone involved in the Paws & Stripes® Program.  Piglet hasn’t let it go to her head, though.  She prances easily alongside her handler and has proven to be a humble participant in her training sessions.  Once Piglet completes her studies, she deserves nothing less than a royal welcome from her new family.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gauge

GaugeSex: Male
Age: 2 year
Breed: Plott Hound Mix
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: SPCA of North Brevard

Comments:  Meet Gauge, aka Prince Charming.  He is a handsome, young chap who also happens to be Princess Piglet’s leading man.  The two are inseparable on the play yard.  Even so, he is willing to part ways with his friend to ensure that they both find forever homes this September.  Isn’t that noble of him?  Gauge’s ideal palace would have a fenced yard and a pool, although he would settle for a daily walk and an occasional puddle if that would get him out of the shelter.  His easy-to-please nature makes him a good fit for almost any home, so get ready to roll out the red carpet for this playful pup.

 

 

 

Chase

Chase - bow tieSex: Male

Breed: Labrador mix
Date Available: September 2014
Adoption Location: Central Brevard Humane Society

Comments:  Grab your drool rag – here comes Chase!  He is a young, energetic Labrador Retriever who loves public displays of affection.  He also enjoys romping with his buddies in the large play group and swimming in the doggie pool.  With his athletic build and webbed feet, Chase would be a true contender in the Dock Jumping competitions.  However, if tournaments are not in his future, Chase would still like to live in an active household.  After all, winning the admirations of a loving family would be reward enough!

Comments:  Jax may look distinguished in his photos, but in reality, he’s a real clown!  He greets each day with unabridged exuberance and his play yard antics are sure to make you smile.  While he had a sluggish start to his training, Jax has already caught up to the other canine cadets and is even on track to surpass them by the end of this training cycle.  Then Jax can move on to his forever home where he will provide his family with years of love and laughter.
