Hi! Im Rita, a 5-year-old Terrier mix who came to the shelter as a surrender with my best friend Charlie. Im really nervous of new people, but during my time here at the shelter Ive learned to trust people and open up a little bit. I still need a few treats to help me feel comfortable. My ideal adopter is someone who can help me and Charlie, we are inseparable. It will take me some time to acclimate to a new home and teach me how to build trusting relationships. I always feel more comfortable when Charlie is around. I have lived with dogs before, but Charlie is the only other dog for me! Im looking for a home where I can get all the attention and be a little bossy. Cats are not ideal for me. I would love to find a semi-quiet home with a secure yard. If youd like to meet me, please fill out an application and a Dog Adoption Counselor will contact you to schedule an appointment.

All of our available dogs are micro-chipped, vaccinated, spay/neutered and on preventatives for flea & tick and heartworms.

BHS adoption counselors are here to help you find your perfect furry friend. Unlike “pass/fail” adoption applications, we strive to match people and animals through education and discovery. We accomplish this by conversation to create an effective, pleasant adoption experience – and most importantly, to make lasting matches.
