Meet Atlas! He is a 2-year-old (DOB 09/30/2017), 60-pound, male Blue Heeler-Pit Bull mix. He is available for adoption now.

Atlas loves adventures, riding in the car, and being with his people. He is shy, sweet, boy who likes to be cuddled. He is a strong fellow who needs some work on his leash manners.

Atlas learns quickly and already knows the basic commands such as “Sit”, “Stay”, and “Down.” It helps that is he treat-motivated once you figure his favorite snack.

Atlas is a true-blue boy who would make a great family companion. His family members should offer firm and consistent direction, and Bully Breed experience is required. (Please note, Atlas requires multiple visits with some intensive training to determine if a home visit is possible). Due to his strength a home with sturdy, dog-savvy teens would be an ideal fit, but he has been around younger children. He has lived successfully with medium dogs his size and prefers big dogs. While he has lived with cats it would take time and careful introduction to get used to new non skittish, dog-savvy feline friends. He does love to run and requires a securely fenced yard.

If you have further questions, emails are the only method of communication at this time.   We all care about the health of our two-legged caregivers and the community at large, so as a precaution we are temporarily suspending our public open hours. We are still taking email inquiries and applications, and will be in touch with you as soon as we are able. We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this difficult time! Stay Well!
