[Picture] 2/6/2018   [18-02-006]   Luca
Pointer/St. Bernard X,  white/red spots,  Male Intact,  2 Yr  
OWNER TURN IN: Luca was an owner surrender because they were moving and could not find a place to live that would accept dogs. Luca has beautiful pointer spots, is tall and lean, and has a big blocky head like a St. Bernard. He is a sweet dog that responds well to verbal commands and has all sorts of potential. He is alert, bright but easily startled.
[Picture] 1/27/2018   [18-01-018]   Karma
Cattledog X,  reddish with white toes,  Female spayed,  8-9 wks.  
OWNER TURN IN: We received a litter of seven puppies from another rescue group (Bob, Jerry, Phil, Karma, Janet, Celeste, and Daphne). We do not know their heritage, but are assuming that they are mostly a healthy mixture of cattle dog with a good amount of Labrador (this is the Montana State dog mixture). The litter was about 8-9 weeks old upon arrival. Karma is a sweet female with reddish fur and white toes. These pups will be ready for their new homes after being spayed/neutered. We are taking applications now however. Out on a test drive, 02/06/2018.
[Picture] 1/27/2018   [18-01-024]   Breezy
Labrador Retriever X,  yellow/reddish hints,  Male neutered,  10-12 mos.  
STRAY:
Breezy, Stormy and Marley all came from the same rescue group transferred to Pintler Pets. Breezy is a nice pup but he does need some training in the basics of dog life. He needs to learn to walk on a leash, sit, stay and 'no jumping up'! These guys are all willing learners though. They look a lot like Labradors, but those ears give away the probability that there in some cattledog genes in their heritage. Update: Stormy and Breezy are both good boys and are good with cats and little dogs.

(Sorry about the picture quality, my camera decided relapse to the 1960's on this day. I didn't do it on purpose.) These pups will be ready for their new homes after being spayed/neutered. We are taking applications now however.

[Picture] 1/27/2018   [18-01-023]   Marley
Labrador Retriever X,  yellow,  Male neutered,  2-3 yrs.  
STRAY:
Marley arrived as a transfer from another rescue person. He is a big, strong goof of a dog. He is submissive around people. He was originally described as a purebred Labrador but obviously has some cattle dog and/or Husky in his heritage. Marley needs some basic social lessons like not jumping up on people when he is glad to see them. Update: Marley ignored the cat in the office and is good with small dogs. He is a good boy! At 65 pounds, he is also a big boy.
[Picture] 1/27/2018   [18-01-025]   Stormy
Labrador Retriever X,  yellow/reddish hints,  Male neutered,  10-12 mos.  
OWNER TURN IN: Stormy and his brother Breezy were brought to us by another rescue group. They are happy, sweet dogs that have to be taught to walk on a leash and basic commands. They are willing learners. Stormy loves the snow and outside activities. He has one brown eye and one blue eye. His coat has mottled reddish markings like a cattledog. Update: Stormy and Breezy are both good boys and are good with cats and little dogs.
[Picture] 1/18/2018   [18-01-021]   Daphne
Cattledog X,  black with white stripe & chest,  Female spayed,  8-9 wks.

We do not know their heritage, but are assuming that they are mostly a healthy mixture of cattle dog with a good amount of Labrador (this is the 'official' Montana State dog mixture).

We are taking applications now however.
[Picture] 1/18/2018   [18-01-013]   Miki
Cattledog X,  white/tan/rust,  Female spayed,  2 Yr  
OWNER TURN IN: Originally arrived 05/20/2016 as a stray running down the road. Miki (and Maggie) was adopted in 2016 but was returned to Pintler Pets because of a medical issue in her human family. She is a bit shy and is best friends with Maggie, her older sister. Miki (originally named Dixie) is an unusual color - a kind of red merle but with very dilute colors.
[Picture] 1/18/2018   [18-01-014]   Maggie
Australian Shepherd/BC X,  white/black flecks,  Female spayed,  4 Yr  
OWNER TURN IN: Maggie (originally named Angel) was adopted from Pintler Pets in 2015 but was recently returned because of a medical situation in her adoptive home's family. Maggie is a sweetheart who is good with everyone and everything. She is a beautiful white Australian shepherd, perhaps with Border collie in her heritage. She has black and rust colored flecks in her soft fur. She has been best friends with Miki, another of our alumni who was returned.
[Picture] 1/17/2018   [18-01-012]   Sassy Pumpkin
Chihuahua,  light tan,  Female,  Young Adult  
STRAY: Lime Quarry, west of Anaconda
Pumpkin (now know as Sassy) was a stray found at the Lime Quarry in the West Valley of Anaconda. Sassy is a typical Chihuahua and is very loyal to her family. We feel that she is pretty young and spunky. She is in foster care so call the shelter (406-563-7464) or her foster Mom (406-563-2564) for a time to meet her.
[Picture] 1/12/2018   [18-01-003]   Laurel
Heeler/Hound X,  red merle,  Female spayed,  2 Yr  
OWNER TURN IN: When Laurel came into Pintler Pets she was horribly underweight, drank water constantly, had mammary tumors and a huge raw spot on the side of her face. A stay at the vet determined that she is diabetic, but now that she is on the right diet, getting insulin and a lot of attention she's up to a healthy weight, drinking a normal amount of water and the raw spot is almost completely healed. The mammary tumor was biopsied and it's benign. She's playful and climbs into a lap or rolls onto her back for tummy rubs every opportunity that she gets. She would love to have her own home where she could be someone's best adventure buddy. Laurel needs an easy to give insulin injection twice a day and glucose management food. She isn't good with cats or small dogs.
[Picture] 1/10/2018   [18-01-006]   BubBub
Chihuahua X,  tan,  Male neutered,  5-6 yrs.  
OWNER TURN IN: BubBub was originally adopted from us 4 years ago when his name was Champ. His elderly Mom died and so he is back with us. He is a friendly, inquisitive sort of guy. He weighs about 15 pounds but should probably drop some of the weight down to 12-13 pounds. Some nice walkies would do him wonders.
[Picture] 1/9/2018   [17-12-010]   Jasmine's Kit
Border Collie arrangement,  black,  Female spayed,  Puppy  
ABANDONED:
You can really see the Border Collie in Kit. She has a sweet little face and intelligent eyes. Kit and her siblings are six weeks old and will be ready to go when they reach eight weeks. Border Collies are active dogs that need lots of exercise. Update: Jasmine, a pregnant dog, was transferred to us after being abandoned. She had these six puppies who have been well cared for in a foster home since they were born, and are now ready for adoption. Adoption pending. Out on a test drive, 02/17/2018.
[Picture] 1/9/2018   [17-12-014]   Jasmine's Trooper
Border Collie arrangement,  cream,  Male neutered,  Puppy  
ABANDONED:
Trooper isn't quite as light colored as his sister but he still has a beautiful coat and a cute little blaze on his forehead. He's a happy, playful guy who was much more interested in looking at the office cat than the camera. Trooper and his siblings are six weeks old and will be ready to go when they reach eight weeks. Border Collies are active dogs that need lots of exercise. Update: Jasmine, a pregnant dog, was transferred to us after being abandoned. She had these six puppies who have been well cared for in a foster home since they were born, and are now ready for adoption. Adoption pending.
[Picture] 1/7/2018   [18-01-010]   Lainie
Shepherd X,  gold/black,  Female spayed,  10 Mo  
STRAY:
Lainie is a transfer from another rescue. She is a sweet, well adjusted young dog who has all sorts of potential. Mainly, she will make a perfect buddy to share life's great adventures for many years to come. Out on a test drive.
[Picture] 1/7/2018   [18-01-007]   Tony Jr. (T.J.)
Husky/Pomeranian X,  silver gray,  Male neutered,  Adult  
STRAY:
Wow! Talk about a unique mix of breeds. TJ has long flowing locks (soon to be groomed), the face of a Husky and the short legs of a Corgi, and otherwise, perhaps, part Pomeranian. He sort of looks like a miniature Husky.... sort of. He is a happy boy: bouncy and fun. He is hoping that life gives him a break and he finds a great home where he can share his love of life. Update: T.J. had a dental and lost 28 teeth! Poor guy must be feeling so much better. Update: T.J. and Baby are bonded and have lived together in their past life, so we would like them to stay together in their new home. Out on a test drive with 'sister', Baby.
[Picture] 1/7/2018   [18-01-008]   Baby
Pomeranian X,  black with a little white,  Female spayed,  Adult  
STRAY:
Baby is a sweet, dog who is a tad bit unsettled at finding that she is in the shelter. Take her for a walk and she opens up and blossoms into a very sweet, kind soul. She would do well in an established, sedate home where she is comfortable. She is rooming with another dog so she would probably like a doggie friend. She weighs about 15 pounds. She has a little bit of white above her eyes and on her muzzle giving her the appearance of a mature, wise girl. Update: Baby and T.J. (Tony Jr.) are bonded and have lived together in their past life, so we would like them to stay together in their new home. Out on a test drive with 'brother' TJ.
[Picture] 12/28/2017   [17-12-007]   Lennon
Herding Breed X,  white with black,  Male neutered,  Puppy  
STRAY:
Lennon is one joyful dog that's just the right age- old enough to tell what his personality will be but young enough to have that puppy spark. He has a Border Collie profile to his head and a medium length tail. He's an active, friendly pup that might enjoy agility or flyball; he might make a good therapy dog as well. All you need is love to make this guy your new best friend.
[Picture] 11/6/2017   [17-11-001]   Shadow
Labrador/Hound X,  shaded silver/white,  Female spayed,  Adult  
STRAY:
Shadow arrived as a stray from Anaconda. Her owners did not have a fence that contained her and she was allowed to run on the streets of Anaconda (we hear that is OK for teenagers, but definitely not for dogs). Shadow is an incredibly, outlandishly, strikingly handsome dog reminiscent of an Egyptian Pharaoh hound. But this being Montana, those bloodlines are pretty rare or nonexistent here. We just call her a shepherd/hound/Labrador cross. She has the stance and physique of a coursing hound. And, oh, those ears! Update: Shadow surprised us with puppies on December 26, 2017. She has 5 cute pups that will be ready in mid- to late-February when she will be adoptable too. Adoption pending.
[Picture] 10/30/2017   [17-10-018]   Jasmine
Collie/Border Collie X,  tri - black/white/brown,  Female spayed,  1-2 yrs.  
STRAY:
Jasmine arrived as a transfer from another rescue group. She is quite shy, but not as shy as some dogs we have taken in. She needs someone to spend time with her and calm her fears. She has become more confident in the short time that we have had her. She is not aggressive, just not trusting of us humans totally. Her fur, like her personality, is soft and beautiful. She will make some lucky person a great companion. Update: Jasmine arrived at Pintler Pets pregnant and delivered 6 healthy puppies on November 27th. She is in foster care until the pups are weaned and she is spayed.
[Picture] 10/14/2017   [17-10-008]   Perri
Shepherd/Cattledog X,  tawny brown,  Female spayed,  10-12 mos.  
STRAY:
Perri arrived as a transfer from another rescue group on October 14. She was ver-r--r-ry pregnant and so we awaited the birth of her pups. She is a super sweet dog with intelligence to match. As far as her 'breed(s) go, we are only guessing. She will be available after her pups are weaned and she is spayed. No more puppies for her! (Written 10/19/2017.... stay tuned! ) Update: 10/21/2017 Perri had 9 pups, of which, only 6 survived. She was such a young mother, she had no idea how to care for them. They are currently being bottle fed in a foster home. Update: Perri's pups are all adopted, now let's get Perri a home!
[Picture] 10/14/2017   [17-10-011]   Shannon
Shepherd/Rottweiler X,  chocolate/cream/white,  Female spayed,  Adult  
STRAY:
Shannon is a very nice, large, active dog. She has a (probably) naturally docked tail, and the coloring of a short-coated Australian shepherd. She is larger than an Aussie though. Shannon has the square head of a Rottie. She was transferred to us from another rescue group (10/14/2017) so we don't know whole lot about her background. She is kennelmates with Colby and they get along well.
[Picture] 10/6/2017   [17-10-001]   Bandit
Pit Bull,  red/white,  Male neutered,  5-6 mos.  
OWNER TURN IN: An elderly couple bought Bandit from a breeder, but at 5 and a half months old, they were asking, "What were we thinking? He's too much dog." Well, he's just a big pup, is all. The lady uses a walker or wheelchair, and the gentleman could not keep up with Bandit's puppy antics. Everyone at Pintler comments on what a nice dog he is! And he certainly has that 'head tilt' down pat when you say his name.
[Picture] 9/2/2017   [17-09-004]   Ashlee
Cattledog arrangement,  black/white,  Female spayed,  Young Adult  
OWNER TURN IN: Ashlee arrived 09/02/2017 as a transfer from another rescue group; she needs to be spayed before adoption but otherwise is ready to go. She is a sweet girl with killer ears so hopefully she can hear when you call her. She is another of our dogs ready, willing, and able for some outdoor activities, and then a nice snooze on the sofa. She is a nice size for skiing, hiking, and biking. Out on a test drive, 02/16/2018.
[Picture] 8/11/2017   [17-08-005]   Roper
Pointer/Pit Bull X,  white/red,  Male neutered,  6-7 yrs.  
OWNER TURN IN: Roper joined us as an owner surrender, after his owner became homeless. Roper loves to give kisses on command and kisses the end of your nose. He is an active dog of course and has a great athletic build. He looks like he has some pitbull in his heritage but also, maybe, some other terrier and/or pointer. His coloring and physique points to being a pointer! He was born in September or October of 2010 making him close to 7 years old.
[Picture] 7/23/2017   [17-07-022]   Jasper
Cattledog arrangement,  black/white/brindle,  Male neutered,  10-12 mos.  
STRAY:
Jasper arrived as a transfer from another rescue group. He still needs to be neutered before he is ready for his new home. Jasper likes to go for walkies and is excited to experience all the great things that life can offer.
[Picture] 1/20/2017   [17-01-010]   Alice B.
Pit Bull,  fawn/white,  Female spayed,  6 yrs.  
STRAY:
Arrived as an owner surrender, Alice B. was adopted but was returned to us. Alice is 6 years old; her date of birth is 08/22/2009. She was originally adopted from the Spokane (WA) Humane Society. Alice gets along with all humans but is choosy about her dog friends. She gets along well with dogs her own size but can't be trusted with small, toy breeds. We feel she should not have a home with cats for this reason also. She will wag her tail until it is a blur when she sees humans coming into the shelter. She is a gorgeous example of the breed, so pretty with her smooth, light tan coat accented with white chest a a blaze on her forehead.
[Picture] 8/26/2016   [16-08-018]   Shamrock
Akita-Pointer X,  white/black,  Male neutered,  2 Yr  
OWNER TURN IN: Arrived as a surrender by a citizen after Shamrock's owner threatened to shoot the dog. We don't understand the circumstances. Shamrock is a big healthy dog, who is guessed to be part Akita and probably part pointer. He walks well on a leash and loves companionship.
[Picture] 7/30/2016   [16-07-015]   Lucky
German Shepherd/Basset X,  tan/black,  Male neutered,  2-3 yrs.  
OWNER TURN IN: Arrived as a transfer from another rescue but was initially surrendered when his former owner could no longer care for him. Lucky is an interesting mixture of a German shepherd dog, a Basset hound and perhaps some collie thrown in for good measure. He is a friendly sort but is in need of some basic life skills... like sit, stay, heel, come, no, yes, maybe. Update: 02/17/2017 Lucky is in orthopedic surgery because of the Basset in his genes. His front leg is deformed and needs to be straighted a bit. Now he will be much more comfortable and ready to go!
[Picture] 7/9/2016   [16-07-002]   Sparky
Heeler X,  red/light red,  Male neutered,  Young Adult  
STRAY:
Sparky is an independent, confident sort of dog. He looks a lot like a Heeler, but maybe with some shepherd in his heritage. In any case, he is a handsome, intelligent fellow who could sue some polishing around the edges.
[Picture] 7/9/2016   [16-07-010]   Winnie
Shepherd X,  black/white accents,  Female spayed,  Adult  
STRAY:
Arrived as a stray who was terrified of her surroundings. She even escaped one of her first nights here but was back the next day as she realize this is as good as it gets right now. She is mostly black with a white chest/toes; one blue eye and one brown eye. She is slowly settling in and starting to trust people.
