Dog Twelve-Marley
Presented by Wolftrax

Marley – My name is Marley and I’m a handsome boy who loves other dogs. I came up here from Saginaw and omigosh! I LOVE the snow! I enjoy running around in it and playing. I think it’s the best stuff ever! I am still a young dog so I have plenty of energy for playing and such. I would love to find a home where I can be active and have a lot of fun.

HeidiDog One Heidi – ADOPTED!!! – Heidi is a super sweet senior looking for her forever home. She was brought to CCHS when her owner could no longer care for her. She is a wonderful dog who loves to go for walks and spend time with her people. Heidi will need a home where she is the only furry friend, as she doesn’t care for other dogs or cats.  If you have room in your home and heart for a beautiful senior dog, please check out Heidi.  **A wonderful sponsor has already paid her adoption fee for you!** (The Bluff’s Senior Community)


UnoDog Two Uno – Uno is a very handsome middle-aged boy who loves to go for walks and just lounge around. He isn’t overly active and he’s not a fan of the cold and snow so he’d be a perfect wintertime cuddle buddy! He can be timid at first and may not present well in a kennel so please ask to see him in another room or outside.  He will take time to adjust in a new home, but given the chance he will be a wonderful best friend. **A wonderful sponsor has already paid his adoption fee for you!** (Gasoline Alley Collision)



Dog Three Georgie – ADOPTED!!! – Georgie is an absolutely beautiful and fun dog. She gets along well with other male dogs and loves to play. She is active and enjoys going for walks and playing out in the yard.  Georgina gets along well with all people so she’d do well with kids too! (Our Lady of Mercy Health and Rehabilitation)




Dog Four Scrappy-ScrapScrappypy is a good boy who is looking for a home with only one or two people around. He prefers women to men and also prefers female dogs.  He is a bit shy at first, especially with men so it may take some time to get him to warm up, but he’ll get there!  He’s a very good boy who just wants to please his people and be loved. (Portage Lake District Library)




Dog Five Gator-Do you have any toys? I LOVE squeaky toys and playing with them is one of my favorite things to do. Of course, being a Hound, I also love to put my nose to the ground and follow it everywhere the smells will take me. I’m a very friendly dog who loves other dogs and would be a great companion. If you are looking for silly, energetic and sweet dog, I might be the one for you. (Toucan’s Auto Repair)



Dog Six RRajaaja – Hey there! My name is Raja. I’m a happy, silly and playful girl. I love to play fetch and hang out with my people. I would be best in a home with no other dogs, especially small dogs! I might get along okay with a larger dog, but we’d have to meet. I am great with kids, but might be a bit too energetic for little ones. I hope you’ll come and spend some time with me! (Kaleva Restaurant)




Dog Seven Abigail – ADOPTED!!! – Hello! Let’s go for a walk! My name is Abigail and I’m a short and stocky Pit mix. I love people so much and I love other dogs too! I am so excited to be in the U.P…I came all the way from Saginaw! I am a huge snuggler and hope that you are looking for a lap dog. Please consider adopting me. (Wickley Agency)





Dog Eight Alice – Alice is a very sweet 2-3 year old girl with beautiful blue eyes and a personality to match that beauty! She is very well-behaved, loves other dogs, is good with cats and would be a great family dog. Sadly, Alice did test positive for heartworm so she won’t be able to go to her new home for quite some time, but she would still love to find an adopter who can come and visit her and give her plenty of love until she is ready to live in her new home. (Pepsi of Houghton)



Dog Nine Battleship – Hi there, my name is Battleship. I’m a handsome dog who is super sweet and friendly. I’m a bit timid at first, but please ask to see me out of my kennel or take me for a walk. I am well-behaved and love to please my people. I get along well with other dogs and would love to have another dog friend, but even if it’s just the two of us, I would be so happy! (Advance Tec Body Repair)




Dog Ten Diamond – Let’s play! Do you have any dog friends for me? Omigosh, I’m so excited about everything!! I love you already and we haven’t even met, but I hope you’ll stop by soon to spend some time with me. I’m a super happy boy who can’t wait to find a new home. I’m good with everyone I meet, but I might be too excitable for tiny toddlers. Please come to the shelter soon! (Douglass House Apartments)




Dog Eleven Koda – ADOPTED!!! – I’m a little shy at first, but I’m new here and am not quite sure what to make of all the changes I’ve had in my life. But don’t let my shyness scare you away! I’m SO sweet and amazing. Sit on the floor with me and I will soon be snuggled in your lap. I came from downstate where I was actually the dog used to test other dogs because I’m so mellow and loving. I adore everyone and would do great in a home with kids. I hope you’ll consider adopting me. (Super 8 Motel)
