[Picture] 5/20/2018   [18-05-020]   Hope's Alyssa
Heeler X,  white/black with hint of brown,  Female,  4 weeks  
OWNER TURN IN: Hope (the Mom) was a transfer from another rescue group when she was pregnant. She is a tricolor Heeler cross; we do not know who the father of the pups was. On April 17th, 2018, Hope gave birth to six puppies at Pintler Pets. We are taking applications now for her puppies -- when they are ready to leave their Mom. These pictures were taken when they were ~1 month old. They are starting to be weaned and spend some time giving Hope a break from her motherly duties. Alyssa is one of the fluffier pups, with soft, medium long fur - white with black spots and a hint of brown on her face. She is outgoing and the boss of the group.

He is a quiet, laid back dude so far in his life.
[Picture] 5/13/2018   [18-05-014]   Danni
Border Collie X,  black with white accents,  Female,  6 Mo  
STRAY:
Danni and Leila are sisters even though they look nothing alike. Danni looks more like a Border collie cross and Leila looks more like a shepherd cross. They are about 6 months old. They were transferred to us from another rescue group. Danni was only 18 pounds upon arrival and is severely underweight. She was also full of burrs and mats. Under all that, she is a beautiful dog.
[Picture] 5/13/2018   [18-05-013]   Penny
Cattledog X,  black/copper,  Female,  10-12 wks.  
OWNER TURN IN: Ivy and Penny are sisters and were transferred to us by another rescue group. They are just a tad shy, seeing how they are in a whole new world. But they soak in loving and are nice little 10-12 week old pups. Penny has black and copper colored fur, just like a new shiny penny. A person can't help but fall in love with this duo. They don't have a mean bone in their bodies and as soon as they feel safe and comfortable, they will so enjoy the finer things in life.

[Picture] 5/13/2018   [18-05-012]   Ivy
Cattledog X,  tri - black/white/brown,  Female,  10-12 wks.  
OWNER TURN IN: Ivy and Penny are sisters and were transferred to us by another rescue group on 05/13/2018. They are just a tad shy, seeing how they are in a whole new world. But they soak in loving and are nice little 10-12 week old pups. Ivy is a gorgeous tri-color cattledog arrangement, with a bit of a short tail. After she feels comfortable, she will enjoy all the good things in life. Come play with them and get to know them! All our dogs and cats are microchipped, vaccinated (appropriate for their age), de-wormed and spayed/neutered before adoption.
[Picture] 5/10/2018   [18-05-006]   Callie
Shar pei/Husky/Shepherd X,  black/brown/white,  Female Lactating,  1-2 yrs.  
OWNER TURN IN: Callie arrived as a transfer from another rescue along with her 5 puppies when her owners no longer wanted them. A 6th puppy (Hunter) was transferred to us a month ago and was adopted. Callie is a sweet dog but is still figuring out where she is and what is expected of her. She minds well, and loves to go for walkies. Her surroundings are all new to her and so she is cautious. Soon she will gain confidence and be a happy-go-lucky sort.
[Picture] 5/10/2018   [18-05-005]   Jesse
Border Collie/Aussie X,  blue merle/white/black,  Male Intact,  1-2 yrs.  
STRAY:
Jesse was transferred to Pintler Pets by another rescue group. This extremely handsome pup is the size and body type like that of a Border collie. He is only 42 pounds of love and affection. He ignores cats and seems to be wary of them, like he has been whacked a few times by a kitty. He knows sit and walks well on a leash. We will have him microchipped, neutered, vaccinated and de-wormed before adoption. Out on a test drive, 05/19/2018. Adoption pending.
[Picture] 5/10/2018   [18-05-007]   Callie's Haggin
Shar pei/Aussie X,  white/blue merle,  Male Intact,  4-5 mos.  
OWNER TURN IN: Callie and her five puppies were transferred to us by another rescue. The pups were unsure of their surroundings initially. They need some TLC and socialization. They are young enough to make great pets and to learn about the good things that life has to offer. Each of the five pups are unique looking. Haggin is chunky and sweet, but probably won't win any beauty contests. He has awesome ice blue eyes, and a handsome white and merle coat.
[Picture] 5/10/2018   [18-05-008]   Callie's Tessie
Shepherd/Shar pei X,  reddish gold/white,  Female,  4-5 mos.  
OWNER TURN IN: Callie (the Mom) and her five puppies were transferred to us by another rescue. The pups were unsure of their surroundings initially. They need some TLC and socialization. They are young enough to make great pets and to learn about the good things that life has to offer. Each of the five pups are unique looking. Tessie is the most shepherd-like of the litter, but with a beautiful reddish gold coat, and just a dab of white. She does have a worried, wrinkled forehead of a Shar pei. She has tall ears and a longer muzzle than the rest of the bunch. Sweet and shy, she needs some one on one to bloom where she is planted.
[Picture] 5/10/2018   [18-05-009]   Callie's Barkley
Shar pei/Aussie X,  blue merle/red/white,  Male Intact,  4-5 mos.  
OWNER TURN IN: Callie (the Mom) and her five puppies were transferred to us by another rescue. The pups were unsure of their surroundings initially. They need some TLC and socialization. They are young enough to make great pets and to learn about the good things that life has to offer. Each of the five pups are unique looking. Barkley is a stout little boy with lovely patches of colors: blue merle, red, gray, black, and white. He is another of this bunch who is so ugly, he's adorable. And he has a great personality to boot. Adoption pending.
[Picture] 5/10/2018   [18-05-010]   Callie's Muggs
Shar pei X,  sable brindle/white chest,  Female,  4-5 mos.  
OWNER TURN IN: Callie (the Mom) and her five puppies were transferred to us by another rescue. The pups were unsure of their surroundings initially. They need some TLC and socialization. They are young enough to make great pets and to learn about the good things that life has to offer. Each of the five pups are unique looking. Muggs is mostly a beautiful sable brindle color with just a white patch on her chest. She may have a tough looking exterior but she is a marshmallow inside.
[Picture] 5/10/2018   [18-05-011]   Callie's Woody
Shepherd/Shar pei X,  dark brown brindle/white,  Male Intact,  4-5 mos.

They are young enough to make great pets and to learn about the good things that life has to offer. Each of the five pups are unique looking. Woody is a dark brown brindle, with white feet, and black spots. His ears will probably stand up like a shepherds.
[Picture] 5/5/2018   [18-05-003]   Robin
Cattledog X,  black/rust,  Female spayed,  Older Adult  
STRAY: Park & Main, Anaconda
Robin was found as a stray on 04/24/2018 and transferred to Pintler Pets on 05/05/2018. She gets along well with other dogs, probably with cats, and with people of course. She is a joy to walk and does well in a home environment. We don't know why she wasn't reclaimed. Upon arrival, her coat was dry and skin flaky. She needs some good high quality food, possibly a dental, and the security of a retirement home.
[Picture] 5/5/2018   [18-05-004]   Esther
Sheepdog,  black/white,  Female,  1-2 yrs.  
STRAY:
Esther was a stray picked up by Anaconda-Deer Lodge County animal control back on 03/12/2018. She was turned over to Pintler Pets on 05/05/2018 for adoption from our shelter. Esther does not 'show' well at the shelter because she barks in her kennel like she is ferocious. Take her out of the kennel and she is a pussycat. She is definitely a cutie pie and is a happy dog. She is about the size of a sheepdog, but with wiry hair.
[Picture] 5/3/2018   [18-05-002]   DeeJay
Cattledog/Shepherd X,  light brown/gray,  Male neutered,  Young Adult  
OWNER TURN IN: Dee Jay was originally with us in January 2018 as a puppy. He was adopted but returned because his elderly owner couldn't give him the exercise and training that he needs. He does know a few basic commands and seems to be house trained. DeeJay will never be a large dog but is a great size for all sorts of fun activities. He has lived with other dogs, and seems OK with cats. He is the sensitive type and wants to please. He has a cool, unique 'widow's peak' on his forehead and the coloring of a German shepherd. Adoption pending.
[Picture] 5/1/2018   [18-05-001]   Hoot
Australian Cattle Dog/Heeler,  black/blue and red merle,  Male neutered,  4 Yr  
OWNER TURN IN: Hoot's owner died (sigh), and a friend of Hoot's rescued him but couldn't keep him. Hoot was a constant companion to his old owner, riding shotgun and sharing meals. Hoot has a high prey drive and so cats are a no-no and he doesn't even like sharing with other dogs. He is a handsome dude, and very loyal and kind to his master. Hoot was used to living on a ranch.
[Picture] 4/28/2018   [18-04-009]   Ellsie
Cattledog arrangement,  gold/white/black muzzle,  Female spayed,  8 weeks  
OWNER TURN IN: Gabby, Ellsie, and Abby were transferred to Pintler Pets by another rescue person when they were about 8 weeks old. Ellsie is very outgoing and inquisitive. She is mostly a light brownish-gold color with white accents, and dark brown or black on her muzzle. What a sweet face she has! She will need to be spayed before adoption, but we will be taking applications before that for these pups.
[Picture] 4/15/2018   [18-04-014]   Willie
Poodle X,  gray/black,  Male neutered,  5 yrs.  
OWNER TURN IN: Willie is a darling little dog who just wants to be loved. We don't know what he is mixed with, but is mostly poodle. He takes a small pill for an occasional seizure, but he hasn't had one in a while. They may have been caused by stress. We had him neutered, groomed (and he is looking so good!) and he has had a dental where he lost 9 teeth. He is in foster care, so call Pat for information on Willie: 406-563-7464 (shelter) or 406-437-8609 (mobile).
[Picture] 4/14/2018   [18-04-007]   Tory
Border Collie X,  dark brown/white with spots,  Female Lactating,  Young Adult  
STRAY:
Tory arrived as a transfer from another rescue group on 04/14/2018. It is obvious that she is quite pregnant. We will wait for her to give birth to her puppies, then she will be ready to regain her figure and enjoy her life of leisure (after the pups are weaned). Stay tuned for her progress. She is a joy to take for a walk and is the type of dog that checks back with you to see how she is doing. She is as bright as a Border collie can be, but seems not to have the extra exuberant energy that some have. Update: Tory had her eight (yes, eight) puppies on 04/25/2018. Update: Tory and her pups are doing well, although Tory came down with a bad case of pneumonia and had to be rushed to the veterinarian. She is doing much better and the pups are growing like weeds.
[Picture] 3/17/2018   [18-03-008]   Oliver
Dutch Shepherd X,  brown brindle,  Male neutered,  4-5 yrs.  
STRAY:
Oliver arrived 03/17/2018 as a transfer from another rescue; he was initially a stray. He is a pretty mellow dog who has transitioned to our shelter seamlessly. He keeps his kennel clean and waits to go outside. His coat of many colors is gorgeous, but his size and shape is that of a German shepherd dog. He actually looks very much like the photos of a Dutch shepherd, especially his distinctive coloring. We estimate his age from examining his teeth as 4-5 years old, but he may be younger because he has lived a tough life. He will have to be neutered and vaccinated before adoption, but is otherwise ready to go!
[Picture] 3/7/2018   [18-03-003]   Kaley
Whippet X,  white/reddish brown,  Female spayed,  Young Adult  
STRAY:
Little Kaley was transferred to Pintler Pets from another rescue group. She was found severely malnourished and underweight. She is a beautiful dog with a very regal look about her. Sweet but confused how exactly she ended up with us. Happy though, because she has a warm, soft place to rest her bones, great food and people who love her. Update: Ouch. Our new arrival has been to visit the veterinarian, and after her examination we have discovered that sweet Kaley has a dislocated hip and knee, the head of her femur is fractured, and at the same time of her orthopedic surgeries, we will have her spayed. Her surgeries are scheduled for Thursday, March 21. When we take in a pet, we are committed to its medical care. Please consider making a donation to Kaley's surgery to make her whole again. Update: In foster care. Out on a test drive.
[Picture] 3/7/2018   [18-03-004]   Punky
Heeler/Pointer X,  black/white/speckles,  Male,  4-5 mos.  
STRAY:
Four young pups were transferred to us from another rescue group (Punky, Gulliver, Beau, and Rhea). They have not been well socialized around people but love each other and are learning to trust us humans. Punky is a big healthy handsome dude, but is the most fearful of people upon arrival. He loves to have people take things slowly with him and seems to enjoy the interaction. He needs to be introduced to the good things in life.
[Picture] 3/7/2018   [18-03-006]   Beau
Labrador Retriever X,  yellow/reddish hints,  Male neutered,  4-5 mos.  
STRAY:
Four young pups were transferred to us from another rescue group (Punky, Gulliver, Beau, and Rhea). These cuties have not been well socialized before they arrived at Pintler Pets. They are getting better by the day, but still have a ways to go. Folks are welcome to come and visit them, pet and talk with them, but small children may scare them right now. Beau and Rhea look a lot alike but Beau is the more reddish blonde of the two. Rhea is a pale yellow and has a short tail. Beau is in foster care with intent to adopt if everything works out, 05/19/2018.
[Picture] 2/21/2018   [18-02-008]   Herc
Pit Bull Terrier,  dark chocolate brown,  Male neutered,  Young Adult  
STRAY: West Park Street, Anaconda
Herc is an exuberant, happy, big strong boy. He is not for those who are meek or those who prize Grandma's easily broken doodads. Herc is a pretty dark chocolate color and appears to be a purebred. Of course, he will be available after he is neutered.
[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.
[Picture] 1/12/2018   [18-01-003]   Laurel
Heeler/Hound X,  red merle,  Female spayed,  2 Yr  
OWNER TURN IN: Laurel had a rough start in life; bred for puppies then dumped when she got sick- she was so anxious that she had scratched a huge raw spot on her face by the time she arrived at Pintler Pets. In spite of this, the only thing she wants is to have a person of her own to hang out with. She is diabetic but is easily managed with the correct food and insulin. She's also exceptionally smart so she's in foster care to start training as a possible emotional support animal (ESA) and when the snow melts she'll start agility too. Laurel is approximately two years old and prefers to be an only pet. Follow and share Laurel's Facebook page to help her find a home: www.facebook.com/Laurel-Needs-A-Home-of-Her-Own-344967805911963/
[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] 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] 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] 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.
