Dugan is a three year old neutered male Anatolian Shepherd Dog mix.  His current owner spotted him in the shelter and couldn't bear to leave him there so he adopted Dugan, even though he lives in an apt.   He is fostering Dugan until a more appropriate home can be found where Dugan will have a nice fenced in yard to run around and play.

Dugan weighs 80 pounds and stands 27 inches high at the shoulder.  He is current on shots and heartworm preventative and is in good health.
He is housebroken, walks on lead and knows basic commands.

Dugan is great with other dogs and he  loves children.  He is also good with cats.

Now, if you're looking at this little doggie and thinking she doesn't look much like an Anatolian Shepherd Dog I would have to say you're correct.   An Anatolian Shepherd Dog, she is not.
What breed she is, I really don't know.

All I know is she ended up in a kill shelter awhile back and she was a very sick and pitiful looking little girl.
A shelter volunteer sent us a picture of her, curled up in a corner, looking like she was knocking on death's door.  Which she probably was.  We were told she was 2 to 3 months old and they thought she was an Anatolian mix.  We all agreed we weren't sure if she was really Anatolian or not but this volunteer said she would take her in and foster her if we would  help her find a home.
We said okay!

Fast forward to today......Nyla is no longer sick!  Yay!  But she is not 2 or 3 months old (more like 9 months) and she is most definitely not an Anatolian or mix.  She's about 18 inches tall and weighs 30 pounds.
And the shelter volunteer that begged us to save her, who promised to foster her?  She backed out and said she's too small, she no longer wants to foster her. =(


So the good news is that Nyla is healthy and ready for a loving family.  The bad news is we no longer have a foster for her.

We honestly have no idea what breed mix she might be.  If you have a guess, feel free to email us!
Like I said, she's about 30 pounds and 18 inches tall.  She is appx 9 months old so when she is full grown she will not be a very large dog.

She is housebroken, crate trained, friendly with people, can get along with other dogs.....she is still very much a puppy and needs to learn some manners but over all she will make a nice little companion dog.  Did you notice what a pretty smile she has?

Please help us spread the word for Miss Nyla to find a foster or adoptive home.  She is current on shots and will be spayed next week.

Charlie and Delta were turned into the shelter because their owners could no longer care for them.  One look at this pair and you know that is right.   They have not been well cared for in quite some time but they remain hopeful and trusting.

Charlie and Delta are young, appx 10 months old, spayed and neutered, (male and female) Anatolian Shepherd Maremma Sheepdog crosses.   They are both friendly with people and good with other dogs.

They are both in need of either a foster or adoptive home. They do not need to stay together.

Theia is a beautiful young girl, about 1 year old.  She may have some Pyrenees in her since she has rear double dew claws but she has the shorter coat of an Anatolian Shepherd.

She is a very sweet and friendly girl who seems to be housebroken and well socialized.  She seems to be good with other dogs so far however we have not had the opportunity to thoroughly evaluate her yet.

We are looking for a foster home for Miss Theia.
