Maximus is doing well with training — and snuggling

This is Maximus, who was adopted from a recent Valentine's litter. He has such beautiful blue eyes!
He is a littermate of Zivah and Shiner, who both had updates posted recently.
Maximus (named Valentino at the shelter) loves to snuggle. He is also doing great with training, working on the puppy biting stage, and the name game.
His new family says, "Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers, answering questions, sharing photos, dedicated love to the animals and smiling faces."
Thank you for adopting this guy from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Super big and still super playful

This is Miss Annie, who was adopted from our shelter as a puppy in 2016. Her family told us recently that she is super big and still super playful. And obviously gorgeous!
"She loves the snow, and she has big, beautiful and adorable amber eyes. She knows lots of tricks, and she is still very smart!"
She certainly found herself in a great home! Thank you for adopting her from the Clinton County Humane Society!

We could just stare at that face all day long

Shiner was adopted around Valentine's Day with an adorable litter of boxer-bulldogs. Named Cupid at the shelter, Shiner has been working on his housetraining (it's getting there!) and sleeping through the night (success!).
His family tells us: "He's definitely in the puppy biting phase, but we're working through it and he's slowly getting used to going for walks on a leash.
"He's a real snuggle bug ... loves to snuggle in one of our laps when it's naptime. Too cute! Thank you so much — it's a joy to have a dog again!"
Thank you for adopting Shiner from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Wendell is a champion snuggler!

Bella is going to strut her stuff at the Indy Mutt Strut

Bella has been in her forever home now for just over a year. Called Frida at the shelter, Bella is fully grown and weighs just under 15 pounds.
She has successfully completed a puppy, intermediate, and advanced training course.
Bella's owner told us: "She continues to be a joy, loves her toys, and just being the center of attention.
"My parents in Indy recently rescued a chihuahua they named Ziva. Bella and Ziva are best buddies. They are inseparable when we go to Indy for weekly visits.
"In April, Bella and I have signed up and started a team for the annual Indy Mutt Strut. We will participate in the greatest spectacle in dog walking and will walk around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with 4,000-plus other dogs."
Check out the "Brickyard Strutters," Bella's team, at
Thank you for adopting Bella from the Clinton County Humane Society!

Husker is sooooo handsome!

Husker was adopted in the fall, and since then, this sweet boy (called Cloud at the shelter) has been living it up with people who adore him.
They told us: "We love having him as part of our family!! He's fit in since day one."

This is Husker's baby picture:

Is that Ace? Or a Minion?

After waiting more than a month in the shelter, Ace was adopted September 2018. However, he found the perfect family who appreciates his big personality and takes him on many adventures. In October trick-or-treated as a Minion.
His family tells us: "This winter we discovered that he has no interest in a group of 13 turkeys that hang out in our back yard every day. He's like, 'Turkeys, again, really? What else ya got?'
"The neighborhood kids like him and he came with a few tricks — like rolling over for a treat. One mom always exclaims, 'HE'S SOOOO FLUFFY!!!' whenever she pets him.
"Why he ever sat in your shelter for 6 weeks without someone adopting him is a mystery to us. Choosing an older, calmer, dog (guessing he's 7 or 8 years old) was an excellent decision. And an easy one.
"Thanks for letting him hang with you until we came along."

We love knowing Zeus is loved and spoiled!

This little guy came from a litter of boxer-bulldogs who were at our shelter in the fall, and he was adopted the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Named Spotty at the shelter, he is now called Zeus. 
His new family enjoys snuggling with Zeus — his face is impossible to resist! 
One of his people told us: "I thought you all night enjoy seeing our precious pup and how loved/spoiled he is. "Thank you so much for rescuing him and helping us find this (not so) little guy!"
