She will be quite large when full grown and will make for the cutest team mate! She does well with other dogs and kids. She does okay with cats, but needs a little extra guidance due to her excitement! Her adoption fee is $200. It includes her spay, up to date vaccinations and microchip. If interested in adopting apply at


Betty Lou Who


We adore Betty Lou, just not her back story.  Miss Betty Lou came to us a a mom in December of '22. She had the Whoville litter. All of her kittens got adopted quickly. Poor Betty Lou waited for months for an adopter. We were so excited when she had the opportunity to be seen at a cat cafe. She transferred there in April of '23.  We were so happy when she got adopted.  But in April of this year, we received notice that she was surrendered to a shelter in Johnson County. We were so worried about her. A volunteer reclaimed her for us (a good hour and a half away).  Now she is back and very overweight. But she is getting exercise.  We desparately want to find Betty Lou the permanent loving home she deserves.  You can apply for sweet Betty Lou at
