UP FOR ADOPTION
Sometimes great dogs are looking for a perfect home. These dogs are enrolled at Intelligent Canine and are up for adoption by their owners. We assist with the adoption process as a third party.
Note: The adoption process is extensive for all applicants. Continued training with Intelligent Canine before and after adoption, a thorough interview and home check will be completed. To express interest, complete the adoption application at the bottom of the page.
2 years old, Golden Doodle 60#
Grant is a lively, loving boy. He adores his handlers and going for walks. What to expect: Highlights: Grant is highly trainable and eager to please. He has a great foundation of technical skills and would be a good fit for a wide range of skills. Challenges: Grant is capable of making new friends, but really prefers to just stick with his family unit. He is not a candidate for a family with children.
12 wks, German Shepherd/Akita, will be 80#
Wyatt is a goal driven pup - anything he decides to do, he does full throttle. He will be a fantastic dog to a driven handler - you name it, he can learn to do it. What to expect: Highlights: Wyatt is a quick train. He learns very quickly and is eager to practice! Challenges: Separation; Wyatt is currently learning to be alone. He will do great with someone who is with him all the time; however, to be a well balanced dog, it's important he learns confidence without his handler.
JANE (Calamity Jane)
18 months old, Dutch Shepherd Mix, 30#
Jane is a trainers dream. If you run or jog daily, she is the perfect dog for you. She is young, active and adaptable. She is great with people, but takes a minute to warm up to strangers. What to expect: Highlights: Jane is quick as a whip; she will keep you on your toes both physically and mentally. She is eager to learn and creative - meaning a canine sport or daily, personal hobby (jogging) will make you and Jane a happy pairing! Challenges: Structure will be key to her success in a home; she has great potential. We won't lie, she's stubborn, but always willing to work.
CAROLINE BELLE (Sweet Caroline)
2 year old, Border Collie Mix
Caroline is a the perfect mix of sweet and sass. She loves to be scratched and nestle into your arms. What to expect: Highlights: She has been phenomenal with people - pervious owners had her with kids and cats. She gets a little nervous with men approaching her handler(s); but warms up. Challenges: Caroline's past has made her very afraid of dogs; this fear manifests as aggression. Sometimes dogs bark and they are bluffing; Caroline is not joking and is not a candidate to live with or around other dogs.
4 year old, Great Dane/Mastiff, 130#
Bridger is a sweet, snuggly, slobbery hunk! He loves to go on walks and definitely thinks all rabbits exist for his pleasure! Looking for the perfect fit. What to expect: Highlights: He loves his friends and family and is acclimated to apartment style living - a daily walker would be ideal! Challenges: He is a natural guard dog, which makes meeting new people a process. Giving him a yard to guard will produce protective behaviors. If that is what you want, awesome; if not, we can help you prevent overprotective behaviors.

8 years old, Jack Russell Terrier
Otis adores his new family with kids. He has a wonderful best friend, who happens to be a cat. His favorite daily activity is walking with his "mom" and following her endlessly through the house chores. For an "old" dog, he sure is spry! We love fairy tale endings to adoption stories.
