Owen (pictured on left) is an awesome eight-year-old American Bulldog mix that loves people and gets along well with most other dogs.  He is around 60 pounds and is white with some grey patches.  Owen is a special needs dog as he has diabetes insipidus, which causes him to be thirsty and urinate more than a regular dog.  However, medication for this condition is optional, and he is currently treated with a low-sodium diet that reduces thirst/urination.  Owen is also completely housebroken. He enjoys being close to you and wouldn't mind sharing your couch – he will be a lap dog if you let him! Spend some couch time at the shelter with Owen, and it will be difficult not to leave with him.

Jax (pictured on right) is waiting for a new start. Jax is a white American pit bull who is about 55 pounds. It was a sad day when Jax parted ways with his owner as he was clearly loved, but his owner was no longer able to care for him.  He is a friendly boy that needs some direction in life.  However, Jax learns quickly and is treat motivated.  He already knows how to shake and has learned to climb the play equipment in the dog yard.  Agility would be a great past time for him and his new family. Jax needs a fenced yard, and HSBC recommends a home with no small children.
