Posted Breed: Shiba Inu / Mixed (medium coat). Shogun is a very people-oriented, little dog. He looks like a Shiba Inu, but we are not certain if he is a purebred. He looks "foxy" and has a rough, water-proof type coat. Shogun came to us as a stray, so we do not know his past. He gets jealous very easily and DOES NOT like men, children, and doesn't like it when other animals steal the attention away from him. He thinks he has to be the center of attention. Shogun will pop up on your lap and guards that position. Shogun needs to be in a home all by himself, without any other pets, children, and especially without men. The vet thinks Shogun was born in 2010 and he weighs 20 pounds. He is up-to-date on vaccinations and is neutered. Shogun LOVES attention and can be so much fun. He likes a lot of one-on-one time, so he would probably not like being left alone for extended periods. Shogun is a good yodeler; he "sings" with the other dogs in the kennels. For more information, please call The Humane Society of Richland-Wilkin Counties at 701-672-1676. Leave a message if there is no answer. The Humane Society of Richland - Wilkin Counties (HSRWC) reserves the right to decline adoption of any animal for any reason if it feels that the home will not be a good match. Please understand that by answering questions and filling out adoption forms does not guarantee the adoption of the pet, nor are you obligated to adopt the pet. We adopt to homes that are the best fit for our animals' needs and not on a first-come/first-serve basis.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      King - Foste...

      rescue
      Breed: Border Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Border Collie / Mixed (short coat). King is a black lab and border collie mix dog with short, black fur and white fur on his chest and toes. He was approximately born in July or August 2017 and he currently weighs 55 pounds, but he has A LOT of growing up to do! Have you ever seen the movie "Up"? King's and Dug's personalities are alike. King LOVES to jump on people (it feels like he's going to tackle us like a linebacker and we're trying to train him to stop doing that) and LOVES to bark, to say, "HI! I LOVE YOU! ARE WE GOING FOR A WALK? DID YOU BRING ANOTHER DOG FOR ME TO PLAY WITH? ...SQUIRREL!!" King cannot be with small animals such as cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, or any other animals he can chase-- besides dogs-- King loves other dogs! He's a friendly but wild, "little" guy. He's a sweet boy, but he needs A LOT of training! We've been practicing the "sit" command and he's doing well with it. King dislikes going back into his kennel and we have to wrestle him back in it if treats don't work. He can be a HUGE cuddler after he winds down a bit and is tired. King is up-to-date on his vaccinations, tested negative for heartworm and Lyme disease, has been given flea and tick preventative, and is neutered.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Mixed (short coat). Ellie is a very cute and spirited dog who was born on 2-7-17. Her previous owner said that Ellie is 1/2 Jack Russell Terrier, 1/4 Yorkie, and 1/4 Poodle. Ellie's short fur is mainly black. She has a white chest and her tippy toes are also white. Ellie LOVES TO JUMP! Not necessarily jumping on people, but just jumping! It's quite the sight to see! She can jump as high as 5 feet tall! Wowza! Ellie isn't potty trained. She is easily excited and will tinkle a little bit when she's with someone she adores. She likes to cuddle with people and play with other dogs, as long as the dogs don't nip at her body. Ellie also loves to play ball! Ellie tested negative for heartworm and Lyme disease, she's spayed, and is up-to-date on vaccinations. If you think you can handle this ball of energy, please come out to the shelter to meet her! For more information, please contact the Humane Society of Richland - Wilkin Counties at 701-672-1676.

      Duke - Foste...

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Duke is a sweet, mellow, 66-pound dog who was born in October 2016. He is a black lab mix, but we're unsure of what breed he's mixed with. Duke is potty trained and he LOVES to play fetch outside, especially if it's with a squeaky toy. He's a little lover and he would love some attention in return. He snuck into the garage one day, so that's how we know he's good with other animals such as cats and rabbits. He just wanted to smell everything. At dinnertime, he'll snarf down everything at once. He is definitely not a grazer! On walks, he does well without a leash and stays near; with a leash... good luck! Duke knows how to sit, but that's the extent of his training. He's such a sweetheart, you really oughta meet him! Duke is up-to-date on his vaccinations, tested negative for heartworm, is neutered, and is microchipped.

      Nikki

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Dachshund-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Nikki is a small Dachshund and Terrier mix dog who has the short stature of a wiener dog. She was born in 2004 and her fur is black with gray on her eyebrows, and sporadically sprinkled throughout her fur, plus white on her chest. She has a long, gray lock of hair that emerges from her forehead. We're refraining from trimming the hair because we think it resembles a mohawk, and it makes Nikki unique and totally punk rock! Nikki's hoping that 2018 is a great year for her because she was passed around to different homes in 2017. She's a senior doggie and is sometimes confused by her surroundings. Potential adopters need to be aware that she dislikes strangers and it takes a while for her to get to know and trust someone. She is losing her sight and hearing, and she has some incontinence if she is not regularly let outside to go to the bathroom. She likes to bark and sit on laps (when it's on her terms). She can't wait for spring to come and for the weather to warm up because then she can go outside more often! She LOVES being outside for walks in nice weather! Cold winter days are not for her! Nikki is up-to-date on her vaccinations, spayed, and tested negative for heartworm and Lyme disease. Please visit our shelter if you're interested in adopting this little old lady and giving her lots of love!

      Breed: Jack Russell Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Annie is a Jack Russell Terrier mix who was born in 2007. She has a lot of sparkle and energy for her age! She walks well on a leash, and she likes to sniff and smell everything as she goes. If she was not on her leash, she might just keep going! Let us reiterate: She has lots and lots of energy and will run forever if she's off her leash! She LOVES to play fetch, but she has a little trouble trying to drop the ball sometimes. If you love to cuddle, Annie's your girl! Annie needs to be THE ONLY pet in a home. She once met another Jack Russell Terrier who she liked at first, but that didn't last long. Annie LOVES people, but not other animals. She cannot be with other dogs, because she might start a fight. She cannot be with cats or small, furry animals like rabbits or ferrets because she thinks they are toys and will probably hurt them. (We're mentioning this for your and your pets' safety.) Annie is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccinations, and house broke. If this little live wire sounds like someone you think would fit well in your household, please come out to the shelter and check out Annie!
