Abra
Hound / Shar Pei / Mixed (short coat)
Male
Adult
Abra is a one year-old, active and energetic boy who adores playing fetch with his favorite toy - tennis balls! He is a happy, go-lucky guy who is content to hang out and play non-stop with toys, tennis balls and stuffed animals but will also enjoy lots of snuggles with his person. As a larger, exuberant puppy, he will do best with many outlets for his energy like long walks and playtime in a fenced yard. Abra will require continued leash walking training and will very much benefit from Puppy Kindergarten and Basic Obedience training. For an appointment to meet Abra, please submit the adoption application (no commitment) found on our website, www.satchelslastresort.org, and an adoption counselor will be in touch.

Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat)
Male
Adult
Bandit is an athletic boy who LOVES balls of any kind. He particularly loves rolling the large red plastic ball around in our play yard and enjoys chasing tennis balls to play fetch but doesn't quite understand that you have to give it back to the "thrower". He would love a yard of his own where his family would spend time playing with him to help burn off some of his energy. He is quite the jumper, so we would recommend a high fence around the yard and, as with any dog, we wouldn't recommend he be left outside alone for any amount of time. This strong, affectionate boy is only 2 years old and still has a lot of puppy in him. He needs some training and would do best in a home with an experienced dog handler. After some training, he would likely make a good jogging companion or perhaps would like to try Agility or Fly Ball. Bandit is currently on medication for a skin issue and that may be something that will need to be an on-going medication. For more information on Bandit or to make an appointment to meet him, please email adoptions@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

** SPECIAL NEEDS - STRANGER DANGER ** Hi, I'm Brittany and I don't much care for strangers. I see all strangers as a potential threat and it takes me quite some time to accept new people into my world. However, once I do I love to spend time with you and have my belly rubbed. I love car rides and will just sleep in the back seat or sit nicely looking out of the window. I don't want to share my food and would prefer you leave me alone while eating. I'm looking for an adopter who understands the need to gain my trust and is willing to visit and wait until the time is right to take me home. Brittany is estimated to be approximately 8 years old and weighs around 50 lbs. For an appointment to meet her, please email info@satchelslastresort.org or call 941-924-5070.

Chewie
Pit Bull Terrier (short coat)
Young
Say hello to young Chewie! Chewie just turned 1 this month and is an exuberant puppy who is so eager to learn new skills. Chewie recently joined our Satchel’s family and in just a short time, he has shown such improvement walking on leash and learning new commands like “sit” and “stay”. We think Chewie would be a perfect candidate for puppy kindergarten and obedience training, and he could also be an excellent jogging partner for someone looking for a running companion. Due to Chewie’s age and energy level, he would be best suited to an adult household or a family with children ages 12+. Chewie would also love to be the center of his new family’s attention, so he would prefer a family without any other dogs and/or cats. If you would like to meet Chewie, please fill out an adoption application (no obligation) at www.satchelslastresort.org, and an adoption counselor will be in touch.

Crash is a sweet old man who has the cutest little proud walk. It is almost as if he is prancing. He is a bit shy of strangers but with a brief intro, he will be your new best friend. He loves to go on walks though he would also be happy to cuddle up on the couch with you too. He is not overly affectionate but does give you the random kiss to let you know he cares. Crash was surrendered to Satchel's because the landlord in the prior home said he could not stay. Crash has lived with two other small dogs in his prior home. We also believe that Crash could live with cats. It was reported that Crash will guard the human he is bonded to, though we have not seen this in the shelter environment. For this reason, we recommend that Crash goes to an adult-only home. Crash is 8 years old and weighs around 60 lbs.

* Medical Special Needs * Meet Crystal. What do you see when you look at Crystal? An overbred momma dog? A dog that had a horrible person chop off her ears? A dog that was left inside a crate at an abandoned property? You know what we see? Unconditional love, this girl wants affection and love so badly. She craves to be told she is a good girl, a warm leg to lean on. She is beautiful to us both inside and out. You will see that too when you come meet her and give her a chance. She enjoys a bath and belly rub, hugs and a romp in the yard but her favorite thing to do is hang out with people who love her.  Sometimes it will take her a little while to warm up to new people, but the wait is so worth it. She is just a big love bug. She is not fond of other dogs. She can go for walks with them but not exist together in a house or come face to face. She is obsessed with cats so if you are interested in her, you can't have any of those either. She does have cancer (cutaneous hemangiosarcoma). It manifests itself with sores and blood blisters on her stomach and these will pop occasionally and bleed. Eventually the disease will go to her spleen. Her survival can be a few years with this type of cancer by the time it has spread to the spleen. Are you the person to love and provide care for Crystal for her remaining years?

Harley is so ready to find his forever family! At six years old, Harley has grown up at Satchel’s and has become a volunteer favorite. Harley is incredibly smart and loves having a job and learning new skills. He completed 6 weeks of agility training and loved the high energy exercise. He looks forward to attending his weekly doggie playgroup sessions at a local dog training studio, having so much fun that he pretty much passes out for the night when he returns to the shelter. Harley is sweet and affectionate, adores car rides and meeting new people. He enjoys exploring the outdoors, especially fenced-in back yards so he can chase lizards and bugs. He would do best in an adult, dog savvy household with no other pets or perhaps a large submissive female dog! In order for Harley to continue enjoying his doggie playgroup sessions after adoption, LEADSRQ, is sponsoring Harley with a $300 training package at K9 Korral. Thank you LEADSRQ!

Wilbur and I were in a home together and then came to Satchel's together many, many, years ago. Wilbur took care of me since I was a little puppy. I'm now looking for human companionship with a new family.   I may only have 3 legs but that doesn't slow me down much. I have a ton of energy and happily bounce around on my 3 legs. I love my walks, although I am slowing down in my old age and can no longer walk very far. I enjoy playing fetch with the ball (although I don't necessarily bring it back to you every time, I just want you to come and get it from me), and absolutely love love love jumping in the water in the tubs we have here at Satchel's. And, of course, car rides are high on my list. Belly rubs are great and I'm sure I would enjoy lounging around with you given the opportunity.   Wilbur was the only dog I ever wanted in my life so I'm looking for a home with no other dogs (or for that matter, no other 4 legged species). Do you have the perfect home for me where I will be showered with love and kisses throughout my senior years, please, please?? I'm waiting...   Ilean is 10 years old and weighs approximately 50 lbs.

** MEDICAL SPECIAL NEEDS ** Merry Christmas from Kelly! Kelly was asking Santa here for a home for Christmas. Do you think you can help her out? Kelly is guessed to be 5 years old and has already spent 3 Christmases at Satchel's. She has so many volunteer fans who don't understand why she is still at the shelter because she is so loving. It could be that her body is unable to keep her kidney values stable without some help from subcutaneous fluids. We don't really know why but with her twice a week flulid supplements, her values remain stable. Our vet doesn't believe this will, in any way, shorten her life or cause her any pain as long as she continues to get her fluids. She patiently stands for the 15 minutes it takes to give them to her. So should this really be why she has to live out her life at a shelter? Please consider opening up your heart and home to Kelly and give yourself an amazing Christmas present in 2020. A present that should go on giving for many, many years. Kelly weighs approximately 55 lbs and is guessed to be 5years old.

Seems he loves being in a home and is absolutely no trouble. Don't let the skin condition around his eyes deter you from meeting this sweet boy. The eye meds we use every day and the special food for allergies keeps the condition under control. He loves playing with his people - staff call him "a silly boy" as he tries so hard to get you to rough house and play with him. He doesn't want to share your attention and so would prefer to be the only pet in the home. Macho loves going on car rides and walks well on a leash. Macho is estimated to be 10 years old and weighs approximately 55 lbs. This boy would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a family to call his own.

I'm so loyal that when around my favorite people, I want to protect them. I would love someone who will keep me as active as my age would allow, as I do love to go for walks and even love to swim! Stranger danger is a term that my friends might use to describe me but it's really because when I love you, I want to protect you and my space from other people! I would want to protect you even from your friends, so keep in mind I would likely need my own room of a big comfy crate to hang out in if you have company over. I could potentially live with another submissive dog, but we would have to meet and form a friendship first. I would be best in a home with no kids. My favorite activities include exploring new places (where they're aren't many people), swimming in safe places (even a kiddie pool) and going on car rides! I also love to get pet and receive love from my best friends. I would want to meet you a few times before I would be comfortable with you, but if you give me treats, throw my toys for me, and come on a few walks, I'm sure we would become great friends. I really hope you'll come meet me, and don't mind that I require a little patience. Hope to meet you soon! Love, Mickey *Mickey has extreme protective tendencies and would need to be in a home where no one comes in and out of the home without a careful introduction. It will take several visits to the shelter for Mickey to feel comfortable with you.

This lovable pair are happy-go-lucky, loving every minute of life despite what they have been through for the past year. They had a happy homelife until their person passed away and they found themselves in a loveless home, spending day after day in a small room with nothing to do, no windows to look out and no human companionship. Ralph loves squeaky toys, blankets, rugs to roll all over and treats. Misty loves to lounge around, snuggle with people and blankets. Both love people and are friendly with everyone they meet. They walk well on leash and enjoy running free in our large play yard. Although they don't mind spending some time alone, they are bonded and we often see them snuggling in the same crate. We are told that Ralph is likely 11-12 years old and Misty 9 years old but they do appear somewhat younger. If you're looking for a pair of bonded senior dogs, please consider meeting Misty and Ralph.

* SPECIAL NEEDS - PARALYZED BACK END * A few months back, Satchel’s got a call from a neighboring county shelter about a sweet girl in need. Poppie is guessed to be about a 6 year old terrier mix and is paralyzed from the waist down. We aren’t sure what caused her injury but it’s not stopping her. Since her arrival at Satchel’s, Poppie has caught the eye of volunteers and staff who are always there to support her special needs.

BONDED PAIR! Misty and Ralph are at Satchel's waiting for their next and forever family to come and pick them. This lovable pair are happy-go-lucky, loving every minute of life despite what they have been through for the past year. They had a happy homelife until their person passed away and they found themselves in a loveless home, spending day after day in a small room with nothing to do, no windows to look out and no human companionship. Ralph loves squeaky toys, blankets, rugs to roll all over and treats. Misty loves to lounge around, snuggle with people and blankets. Both love people and are friendly with everyone they meet. They walk well on leash and enjoy running free in our large play yard. Although they don't mind spending some time alone, they are bonded and we often see them snuggling in the same crate. We are told that Ralph is likely 11-12 years old and Misty 9 years old but they do appear somewhat younger. If you're looking for a pair of bonded senior dogs, please consider meeting Misty and Ralph. Submit the adoption application (no commitment) found on our website, www.satchelslastresort.org, and adoption counselor will get back to you to set up an appointment.

He was found stray by animal services. Ronnie had some eye issues when he arrived at Satchel's but that is clearing up nicely. He loves walks and butt scratches.

* MEDICAL SPECIAL NEEDS - DISTEMPTER SURVIVOR * Scarlett is a most precious resident at Satchels, she is adored by all who see her smile. Scarlett had distemper as a puppy which has resulted in life long neurological issues. That means nothing to her, Scarlett is a spunky heartthrob. She’s quirky, loves other animals and people. With her condition she has a special way of communicating and is always up for a chatter. In her previous home we were told she was picked on by the other pups but her she has come out of her shell and she is running with the best of them! A bigger, older puppy would be the perfect playmate for her as she sometimes plays with her mouth. An adult only home would be best for Scarlett since her talking can sometimes be a little rambunctious. She does require help with potty training and needs a home where someone is home most of the time. She hasn’t caught the hang of how to sit or those basics yet, but she will come to you quicker than anyone you know and listens very well to no! Once you see her spinning with joy for you, you won’t want to spend another day without her! Scarlett is 2 years old and weighs approximately 45 lbs. For an appointment to meet her, please submit the adoption application (no commitment) found on our website, www.satchelslastresort.org, and an adoption counselor will be in touch.

* SPECIAL NEEDS: STRANGER DANGER. Tonka is an incredibly energetic girl who is very eager to please. While she can be excitable, she wants nothing more than attention from those she loves. She can be a little leery of strangers but once she trusts you she will win your heart with her giant ears and exuberant personality. Tonka knows basic commands and walks well on the leash once her initial excitement over the prospect of going for a walk diminishes. Her absolute favorite toy is a Jolly Ball Romp-and-roll which she can swing around for hours. Once playtime is over, she easily settles down for a cuddle. Tonka would do well in an active home with structured training. She will require an adult only home where she can be the only four-legged member.  Tonka is 8 years old.

Handsome Tucker! Tucker is extremely smart and knows all his obedience commands. He loves to learn and be rewarded so continued training in a home can be made a fun and happy time. He's rides well in a car and is always excited when it's his turn for a car ride. Once the initial excitement of a walk is over, Tucker walks well on leash and enjoys a nice long walk. He is young boy with a lot of energy and would do best if he had a yard in which to run and play or some type of doggie sports such as agility or fly ball to keep him mentally and physically challenged. He enjoys the kiddie pools at the shelter and would likely enjoy swimming. He has a canine girlfriend at the shelter and would enjoy a canine sibling. Once play time is over, he's happy to snuggle with you. Tucker is estimated to be approximately 2 years old.
