Are you looking for a superdog? One that loves kids? Dogs? Cats? Fun? Good news! Your search is over. I’m the dog for you.

I am an Anatolian shepherd mix and I’m about five months old. I am house-trained and crate trained. I live in a home with cats and young children so I would definitely do well in that type of environment again.

I enjoy cuddling, playing tug-of-war with a doggy friend and playing with my humans, especially children. Children are my favorite companions and big dogs are fun too.

I’m a big boy but very gentle. My foster mom likes to tell the story about how I whined at the door to her daughter’s room when I was first rescued. When my foster mom opened the door, I jumped on the bed and dug my nose under the covers until I found her daughter and then I gave her kisses, cuddled up next to her and went to sleep. I was so happy to be safe.

If you can offer me a loving home where I can be free and have children and maybe another big dog to play with, then I’m your guy. Carpe diem! Let’s “seize the day” and start our lives together.

Adoption Policy:

  • Complete an adoption application and submit it. You will receive an onscreen confirmation we received it.
  • Once your application is initially reviewed, we then contact your veterinarian and references. After that, a H.E.L.P. volunteer will contact you. Please be patient, this does take some time especially over a weekend. Please allow 24-72 hours for us to make contact with you.
  • All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • Because this is a life time commitment, once you meet the foster dog, there is a 24 hour waiting period for you to make sure that the fit is right for everyone. So many people see a cute face and want to take them home right away without really thinking about it. The waiting period also allows you to get supplies ready for your new one.
  • We do not ship dogs within or out of the state.


  • Puppies 12 months and younger are $300.
  • Adult Dogs over 12 months and younger than 7 years old are $250.
  • Senior Dogs over 7 years are $200.
