Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Meet Lucy. She was dumped at my house with her brother Leroy and they desperately wanted to belong to our dog pack. She gets along great with my 4 dogs and is interested in cats but not aggressively. If you want a super mellow dog who wants to do whatever you are doing, Lucy is the dog for you. I often find her laying at my feet. She is sweet, easy-going, loving, and ready to bond with a human for life. Lucy is a special girl and she's already a very good dog. She is house-trained, responds well to training and wants to please. Lucy loves swimming, hiking, playing with other dogs, toys, car rides and sleeping in the bed. The vet thinks she ...

Serious inquiries only please. (Less)

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    I am Mozart. I am a Large Tan and Black Adult Male German Shepherd. I am estimated to be 5-7 years old, potentially a bit older. It was hard for the ACO to make a clear estimate and I have led a hard life. I weigh nearly 100 lbs. I am a friendly, happy, good natrued boy. I was found in the yard of an elderly man w/ a logging chain embedded fully in my neck. The county ACO picked me up and the shelter had the chain removed and called on SWVAL to assist. I am in a foster home now and doing great. I do very well w/ other dogs and I do not bother the cats in my foster home, even when they smack my nose. I do tend to resource guard a bit, but ... (Read More)my foster is working w/ me and I am improving in leaps and bounds. Sometimes when I am in the company of a lot of people and pets, I get overstimulated and grouchy. For this reason, I need a space to call my own where I can decompress and have some quiet moments too. At my foster home, I have a big crate w/ a blanket over it where I can go whenever I want. I don't like to have my mouth touched and I will get grumbly when you do this, so please only let my vet do this and let them know that my mouth is sensitive. I am very loving and enjoy toys and walks and love greeting every dog I meet on walks. I do well in my crate although sometimes you have to sweet talk me into going in by putting in a treat or a toy. I love treats and respond very well to rewards. I'm learning to walk on a harness and learning how to properly walk on a leash. I know basic commands and I will give you my paw to 'shake hands'.So far, I am not having accidents in my foster home if I am taken out on a schedule. The adoption fee for dogs is $125 and that includes: %BD' veterinarian examination %BD' current vaccines %BD' current flea, intestinal parasite, and heartworm prevention %BD' spay/neuter %BD' a microchip for identification if ever lost or stolen %BD' current heartworm test For more information on this pet, please visit our website, swval.org or search for us on Petfinder.com In order to adopt, fill out the adoption application from our website or email us at adopt.swval@gmail.com and we'll send you an application!

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is our Ole Bear. He made it to Mighty Mutt after months of preparation for his arrival. His owner passed away and at Bears age of 6 yrs old he had no where else to go. We here at MMRS decided we couldn't let him down in such a sad and stressful time in his life. He is such a sweetheart. He is still nervous but once he was able to meet some of the other dogs here we got the tail high in the air wagging and a huge bounce back in his step.
