CONNER - $300 pledged for rescue
This sweet, handsome boy has barely escaped euthanasia and is quickly nearing the end of his time. We are not sure exactly how many days he has left, but he is towards the top of the euthanasia list and will sadly be one of the first dogs euthanized when kennel space is needed. Conner is such a loving boy and does not deserve any ...of this. Ever since he was returned for not doing great with small kids, he has been frowned upon and painted with this less than complimentary brush. He cannot help what he has or has not been through, but that should not define his entire existence. There is so much more to him than that, and he deserves to be recognized for all the other wonderful things he has to offer. Conner is loving and affectionate, but not overbearing and pushy. He gives sweet, gentle kisses to show his love and appreciation and is such a happy, jolly guy. He is not rambunctious or energetic, but rather mature and perfectly playful. He likes to play with tennis balls, is very attentive to treats, and is one of my favorites to spend time with. Each time I get him out, he is well behaved and such a joy to be around. He absolutely adores people and you can see it written all over his face. He gets this huge, happy smile and his tail never stops wagging. Conner really is a good boy, and I truly hope that someone else can see what I see and will give him a chance. He weighs about 70 pounds, is already neutered and housebroken, and is a little over 6 years old. He has done well with other dogs (on leash) with a proper introduction (no strong alpha males), but does need a home with no cats or small kids (teenage+). If you are interested in this sweet, misunderstood guy, please contact Daviess County Animal Control in Owensboro, KY at 270.685.8275 or ASAP!! PLEASE HURRY!!

CECILIA- $300 pledged for rescue!
CECILIA is a beautiful girl that sits quietly in her kennel day after day just waiting for that special person to notice her. Unfortunately, time and time again she gets passed by without even a second glance. This poor girl came in very thin and nervous and it has taken quite some time for her to come out of her shell and let her tr...ue personality shine through. Now the hope of finding a home is quickly passing her by and her happily ever after is diminishing each day. We are not ready to give up on her yet and we know she is not either. Cecilia is an absolute joy to be around and it has been a pleasure to watch her blossom and build trust in people who have seemingly disappointed her on more than one occasion. She has embraced her softer side and now seeks out affection whenever she is in your presence. She also recently discovered toys and learned how to be playful and have fun. We only hope it is not too late and she gets the opportunity to know unconditional love. Cecilia is only about 2 years old and would be a great addition to a quieter home where she can slowly adjust to a safe environment and be peaceful, happy, and LOVED! She weighs about 65 pounds, but is shorter in stature, and was tested (on leash) with a male dog and did well with him. If you are interested in this sweet girl, please contact Daviess County Animal Control in Owensboro, KY at 270.685.8275 or ASAP!! Dogs are being euthanized for space and she will likely be next!!

CANDY-$300 pledged for rescue!
This beautiful girl has been at the shelter almost four months and unfortunately STILL does not have any interest. Candy came into the shelter as a stray with an injury to her tail. It had to be amputated due to the severity of the injury, but she is doing much better now and is definitely ready to find her forever home! This sweet girl loves water and was not shy about hopping in and splashing ar...ound in it at all. She would really enjoy hiking adventures where she could go on a nice walk and then stop off and play in the water along the way. She would absolutely love it! Candy has been out around several other dogs at the shelter (on leash) and did well with all of them after a proper introduction. She is easily excitable and can get a little mouthy with both people and other dogs when she gets excited. This is something that she certainly needs to work on, but she responds VERY well to corrections and definitely wants to do the right thing. She thrives off of leadership and admires your every move if you provide her with such. She has tons of potential to learn and grow into an amazing dog if placed in the right hands. Please consider welcoming her into your family! Candy is roughly 2 years old, weighs about 55 pounds, and is already spayed. If you are interested in Candy, contact Daviess County Animal Control in Owensboro, KY at 270.685.8275 or ASAP!!

I got Candy out today for a walk. She was so happy for the attention and was very affectionate. She loves water by the way. She jumped in the lake behind the shelter. Almost took me with her. Please continue to share. She has been in a kennel long enough"

BANDIT- $300 Pledged for Rescue
BANDIT was surrendered to the shelter with another male pit because of a tragic death in the family. The family tried very hard to make it work, but ultimately felt they had no choice but to bring them to the shelter. Bandit is young at 2 years old and still loves to run and play. He absolutely LOVES tennis balls and will do just about anything to get one! He has such a fun, youthful spirit about... him and the way he prances around with his tennis ball in his mouth is really cute. Bandit already knows sit and up and has an immense amount of potential to continue learning more. All he needs is someone to give him a chance. He can be a little scared of new people, but once you gain his trust, he will be forever loyal to you. While Bandit lived with another intact male pit and did fine with him for the most part, we think he will likely do better with non-dominant dogs. He also lived with kids in his previous home and did well with them. Bandit has really been overwhelmed by all the changes in his life lately and would love to settle down and get some stability back once again. If you can help him, please contact Daviess County Animal Control in Owensboro, KY at 270.685.8275 or ASAP!!
