10/16/2018 [18-10-006] Boy
Husky (purebred), red/white, Male, Adult
STRAY: East 4th Street, Anaconda
Boy is a purebred Husky, red and white with ice blue eyes. He was transferred to Pintler Pets from Anaconda-Deer Lodge Animal Control. He was picked up running 3 times in three weeks. Obviously he needs more supervision and an owner who is Husky savvy. He is a stunningly handsome dog and is very lovable. He is strong, both physically and strong willed.
10/14/2018 [18-10-002] Murphy
Cattledog/Husky X, white/blue/red merle, Male Intact, Young Adult
OWNER TURN IN: Arrived 10/14/2018 along with brother Audie as a transfer from another rescue group. They were surrendered by their owners. Both are a bit shy, but we know the best solution to that is lots of loving and visits to make them realize that humans and the world have good things to offer. We distinguish Audie by his floppy ears; He has mostly white fur with both red and blue ticking. Murphy has the more 'stand-up' ears. We estimate their age as about 11 months old upon arrival.
10/14/2018 [18-10-003] Chippy
Labrador/Cattledog X, shaded chocolate brown, Female spayed, 8 Mo
OWNER TURN IN: "Chip" was transferred to Pintler Pets by another rescue group. We initially were told he was a boy, but oops Chip, now Chippy, is a girl. She is estimated to be about 8 months old. She walks well on a leash, and is a quiet, well mannered pup. Chippy has a beautiful, chocolate shaded coat.
10/14/2018 [18-10-004] Jack
Cattledog X, browns/white, Male Intact, Young Adult
OWNER TURN IN: Jack is a medium sized dog; he has a variety of breeds in his background. Sweet dog who walks well on a leash, almost knows 'heel' with no formal training. He was a transfer from another rescue group and is estimated to be 10-12 months old.
10/14/2018 [18-10-005] Molly B
Aussie X, white/black, Female, 3-4 yrs.
OWNER TURN IN: Molly B. is a medium-size dog; she has a variety of breeds in her background. She is mostly white with black markings on her head. She was a transfer from another rescue group and is estimated to be 3-4 years old. We call her an Aussie cross, but is basically a mixture of various cattledog breeds. Adoption pending.
10/14/2018 [18-10-001] Audie
Cowdog/Husky X, white/blue/red merle, Male Intact, Young Adult
OWNER TURN IN: Arrived 10/14/2018 along with brother Murphy as a transfer from another rescue group. They were surrendered by their owners. Both are a bit shy, but we know the best solution to that is lots of loving and visits to make them realize that humans and the world have good things to offer. We distinguish Audie by his floppy ears; he has mostly white fur with both red and blue ticking. Murphy has the more 'stand-up' ears. We estimate their age as about 11 months old upon arrival.
9/13/2018 [18-09-003] Betty
Labrador/Boxer X, black/brown shaded, Female, Young Adult
STRAY: Carquest on Commercial St.
Betty was found in Anaconda as a stray by Carquest on Commercial Street. She has a pretty, shaded brown and black coat. She is a happy girl and is just a big, lanky sweet goof of a dog.
9/12/2018 [18-09-004] Bella Black
Pit Bull, black, Female spayed, 2 Yr
STRAY: Wells Fargo Bank, Anaconda
Bella is a super sweet girl, but is big and strong. She has an impressive big,square head and a compact body. I appears that she had puppies in the recent past. Spayed 09/13/2018.
9/11/2018 [18-09-001] Hondo
Pit Bull X, white/reddish brown, Male neutered, Young Adult
Hondo was abandoned, dropped off at animal control, and transferred to us on 09/11/2018. He is a sweet boy and is very trainable. He listens and walks pretty darn well on a leash. His colors are beautiful and he seems like a healthy sort.
9/8/2018 [18-09-002] Fiona
Chihuahua/Cattledog X, light brown/white/black, Female spayed, 8 wks.
OWNER TURN IN: Fiona was transferred to us by another rescue person. She is about 8 weeks old and was originally an owner surrender. Fiona is a small pup, and will probably not get very big as an adult, maybe 25-30 pounds at most. Of course, knowing nothing of her background, we are guessing that she is Chihuahua and a cattledog mix. She sure is smart, and has a wonderful personality. Adoption pending. Out on a test drive.
9/8/2018 [18-09-011] Phoebe
Beagle/Cattledog X, white/black, Female spayed, 8-10 wks.
OWNER TURN IN: Clay, Josie, Hazel, and Phoebe are littermates transferred to Pintler Pets from another rescue group. They are darling pups, who we guess are beagle-something crosses. Phoebe is of the same litter, but is the most unique. She looks a little more like a Border collie, maybe more like a terrier. She is just a sweetheart in any case. Adoption pending.
9/8/2018 [18-09-020] Hilda
Cattle Dog/Labrador X, black/white, Female spayed, 8-10 wks.
OWNER TURN IN: Dooley, Hilda, Hailey, and Onyx, a litter of four, arrived when they were about 8 weeks old. They are all petite, svelte little imps. We say that they are Labrador crosses because of their coloring. Their body type is more of a cattle dog. Hilda has a white blaze on her nose, and white feet and chest. Adoption pending.
9/8/2018 [18-09-007] Monte
Labrador/Shepherd X, light yellow/white, Male neutered, 8-10 wks.
OWNER TURN IN: Gidget, Bridget, Monte and Ivory all arrived as transfers from another rescue. They were about 8 weeks old when they came in on 09/08/2018. These darling little pups are outgoing and well socialized. Who knows what they will look like when they grow up. All four of these pups in this litter look different from each other. We don't know what he parents looked like. Monte looks a bit like a yellow Labrador with some shepherd and maybe some cattle dog mixed in. Adoption pending. Out on a test drive, 10/14/2018.
8/21/2018 [18-08-027] Vickie
Bulldog/Pit Bull X, white/tan, Female spayed, 12 yrs.
OWNER TURN IN: Vickie arrived 08/21/2018 transferred to Pintler Pets after being surrendered by her owner to Anaconda-Deer Lodge County animal control. She is an older gal, who has obviously been used to breed many litters of puppies. She will be spayed (of course) before leaving Pintler Pets. She weighs about 60 pounds and so isn't a huge dog. She has a very short coat, and a cute brown patch on her rump - just right for patting. Her physique seems to be more of some sort bulldog breed; she even snorts like a bulldog. She is mellow but confused why she is with us. Vickie also has deep brown, soulful eyes, and seems to be resigned a new life. Little does she know, things in her life are about to get better!
8/11/2018 [18-08-026] Willard
Labrador Retriever X, black, Male neutered, 7 Mo
OWNER TURN IN: Willard is your typical, enthusiastic black Labrador retriever. Forgive the tongue in this picture as it was wickedly hot out this day. Willard is excited about joining a family for camping and hikes before the snow sets in. Then he will be excited about skiing and hikes in the snow.
8/5/2018 [18-08-012] Logan
German Shepherd Dog, tan/black, Male neutered, Adult
OWNER TURN IN: Logan was a recent (08/05/2018) transfer from another rescue group. He is a handsome, intelligent, well-built GSD. He has a fairly long, fluffy coat (which, of course, needs a good brushing). He is responsive to training and knows a couple of commands.
8/1/2018 [18-08-001] Obie
Labrador/Border Collie X, black/merle/white, Male neutered, < 1 yr.
Obie arrived 08/01/2018 after being found by a citizen on 07/19/2018 and turned over to Anaconda-Deer Lodge County animal control. He was neutered on 08/23/2018 by Pintler Pets. He is a wonderful, athletic dog -- not too big and not too small. He has blue merle toes and a darling white tip on his tail, the rest of him is black. He is rooming in with Perri and they get along great.
7/12/2018 [18-07-029] Mikey
Shepherd/Cattledog X, tan/merle, Male neutered, Adult
STRAY: Fire department, Anaconda
Mikey was transferred to Pintler Pets by our local Anaconda-Deer Lodge County animal control. It was reported that he had been beaten up by a deer near the fire department in Anaconda. What!?! We can't make this stuff up. So this peace loving dog was attacked by a local errant Cervidae. Poor Mikey! He is a sweet dog perfect for someone not into a puppy's antics. He promises to be a faithful, obedient pal for life if given a chance. He may even enjoy being a hunting partner. Paybacks are Hell.
7/12/2018 [18-07-026] Scotty
Foxhound, white/red, Male neutered, 7 yrs.
OWNER TURN IN: Scotty was originally at the Anaconda-Deer Lodge County animal control shelter since March 4, 2018 because of a court case. He was transferred to Pintler Pets on 07/09/2018. He is 7 years old and still needs to be neutered before adoption.
6/30/2018 [18-06-023] Koa
Labrador/Hound X, black/red legs, Male neutered, 2 Yr
OWNER TURN IN: Koa is about 2 years old - a big boy but a very happy boy at that. He is a mixture of black Labrador retriever and redbone coonhound. He looks mostly Labrador, but his former owners said he sounds like a hound when he bays. He is best when someone is home with him most of the time, or he can travel with his owners. He is good with older children, but he may be too big and goofy for toddlers.
5/31/2018 [18-05-027] Flynn
Labrador Retriever, black, Male neutered, Young Adult
Flynn was transferred to Pintler Pets by another rescue group. He was originally a stray. He is a big boy weighing in at 78 pounds. He seems to have had some training, and knows a few basic commands. He has outstanding deep brown eyes, and a glossy black coat. He may not be 100% Labrador retriever but he is pretty close. The only other possibility in the mix is Mastiff??? Like all Labs, Flynn is just a big puppy and will probably settle into a staid, calm dog about 5 years of age, or 7, or 9. Neutered 03/20/2018. Flynn went out on a test drive, but could climb a 6-foot fence. His new family was afraid he would get hurt so he is with us again. Guess he needs a home where he has an underground electronic fence or a home where someone is home most of the time or a home where Flynn can be with his owners where ever they might go.
5/26/2018 [18-05-026] Ruby
Cattledog X, black/rust, Female spayed, Young Adult
OWNER TURN IN: Ruby was an owner surrender because she was too active for their lifestyle. She is a nice medium-size dog, is spayed, vaccinated, and will be microchipped before she leaves. She has a beautiful glossy coat, and a sleek, healthy, physical condition.
5/10/2018 [18-05-008] Callie's Tessie
Shepherd/Shar pei X, reddish gold/white, Female spayed, 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. Update: In foster care.
5/10/2018 [18-05-011] Callie's Woody
Shepherd/Shar pei X, dark brown brindle/white, Male neutered, 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. Woody is a dark brown brindle, with white feet, and black spots. His ears will probably stand up like a shepherds.
5/5/2018 [18-05-004] Esther
Sheepdog, black/white, Female spayed, 1-2 yrs.
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. Update: Some folks that have Irish Wolfhounds told us that they thought Esther probably has some Irish Wolfhound in her heritage so we are adding that to her bio. Update: Out on a test drive.
3/7/2018 [18-03-004] Punky
Heeler/Pointer X, black/white/speckles, Male neutered, 4-5 mos.
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.
1/12/2018 [18-01-003] Laurel
Heeler/Hound X, red merle, Female spayed, 2 Yr
OWNER TURN IN: Are you looking for a copilot? Laurel would like to apply. The only thing she wants in life is her very own fur-ever human to do things with. Her non stop enthusiasm applies to everything from going for a drive to hiking to just hanging out while you read. Laurel had a rough start in life; she was dumped when she developed diabetes but it is easily managed with insulin 2x day and the right food. Like most diabetic dogs, she is vision impaired but it doesn't slow her down at all- she's even gone mountain biking. Laurel would do best as an only pet; her dream home would be an active retiree or someone who works from home, but anyone who wants a devoted activity partner should consider giving this wonderful girl a chance. Laurel has been in foster care since January and hopes to find her home soon! Visit Laurel's Facebook page: Here
10/14/2017 [17-10-008] Perri
Shepherd/Cattledog X, tawny brown, Female spayed, 10-12 mos.
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!
10/14/2017 [17-10-011] Shannon
Shepherd/Rottweiler X, chocolate/cream/white, Female spayed, Adult
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.
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.
1/20/2017 [17-01-010] Alice B.
Pit Bull, fawn/white, Female spayed, 9 yrs.
Alice has had a checkered past as she is very strong and very dog aggressive. That said, she is the youngest 9 year old and the most loving to people that you will meet. She enjoys car rides and a visit to the vet makes her so happy, as she gets to be around people. She will need a secure yard, and needs to be the only pet. She has spent much of her life in a kennel. If you can give her a home she will reward you with love and gratitude. She is adorable.
7/9/2016 [16-07-002] Sparky
Heeler X, red/light red, Male neutered, Adult
Sparky has spent most of his life in a kennel and could be called institutionalized. The remarkable thing about him, is that with regular walks and a little training by volunteers, he has become sweet and eager to please and, more and more excited by what life could offer. He is a real example of the wonder of dogs. Put a little in and get a magnitude of affection back. Could you be the person to see him bloom? He gets along with other dogs, but no cats.
7/9/2016 [16-07-010] Winnie
Shepherd X, black/white accents, Female spayed, Adult
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 realized 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.
