Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.

My name is Cougar. I am an enthusiastic and happy dog who loves to run and play like a goofball until I’m tired and then to snuggle up and sleep like a baby. I do not have a mean bone in my body, but I can be a little nervous and jumpy, especially when I’m getting to know new people, places, or dogs. But once I figure out that I’m safe, I’m as happy and goofy as ever! I would love to live with a fun-loving friendly dog who would play and wrestle with me, but I would not do well with an aggressive dog. I do great at the dog park; I greet the friendly dogs, avoid the more aggressive dogs, and enjoy running all around. I also do great with my foster family’s cat; I mostly just leave her alone because she is cranky. I have lots of energy and so need lots of exercise, but if I get enough exercise, I’m a dream around the house. Currently I go to the dog park every morning to burn off my energy, but I would also make a great morning running partner for someone who likes to put on the miles because I can go and go and go! Once I burn off my energy in the morning, I am able to chill out until my people come home from school/work in the afternoon. I am good at going in my kennel overnight, when my people need to be away, or sometimes just to take a nap, but I really love to snuggle on the couch with my foster parents. I’m a really good snuggler; I’m warm, soft, and can melt right into your lap! I am potty trained, although I did have an accident in my foster house once when I was scared to go outside in the yard because of noises in the neighborhood. My foster parents figured out that they have to take me out on a leash sometimes to potty when I’m too nervous to stay outside by myself. I have been working hard at learning my commands. I’m still not perfect (treats help!!), but I know “sit,” “stay,” and “go to your pillow.” I am working on learning “down.” Walks around the neighborhood are one of my favorite things to do, and I’m working on learning not to pull. I’m looking for a forever home that is quiet and calm and with people who will snuggle with me and help me get enough exercise, feel safe when I get nervous, and keep learning my commands. For your help, I’ll repay you with so much love and with snuggles! Oh, and I have the softest ears; you won’t be able to resist touching them!
