Alexis
Age: 3 Months Old / Breed: Beagle / Terrier / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Alexis is the smallest of the Schitt's Creek gals, but don't let her 6 pounds fool you. This 3 month old beagle/terrier female is vocal and feisty. She can be found bossing her siblings around most days, waiting for belly rubs from her foster mom. Alexis loves squeaky toys, being held like a baby, and is the social butterfly of the crew. She can be a bit of a diva, but that is what makes her so lovable. She follows her big foster sibling dog around and has no fear when it comes to playing with him. Alexis is working on her use of puppy pads and due to her small nature, tends to need to use the bathroom a bit more often. Alexis will be a great addition for any home who is looking for a spunky gal with a lot of love to give. Alexis' adoption fee is $400.”

Hershey
Age: 5 Years Old / Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Hershey is a handsome 5 year old chocolate Lab mix! Weighing in around 60 pounds, he is on a weight loss journey to get down to healthy weight which should be around 55 pounds. Hershey loves the other dogs in his foster home, both bigger and smaller than him. He will run and zoom with the dogs, then be ready to curl up by your feet for a nap. He has a medium energy level, enjoying going for walks at the park, but also ready for a lazy day at home. Hershey is also quick to make friends with the cats in his foster home. Hershey is both crate and potty trained, but likely would do well outside of a crate when his foster family is away from the home. 
Hershey lacks confidence and is hesitant of new people - he does best with slow introductions and would prefer a forever home with limited visitors, or a family willing to crate him when company is over. Once adjusted to his people, he's a very loving and loyal boy! Due to his nervousness of new people, he would do best in a home with older children who understand how to respect his space as he acclimates. Hershey takes more time to warm up to men than women, so any men in his life should be prepared to take the time to build up trust with him as he gets to know them. 
Hershey's adoption fee is $250.”

River
Age: 8 Months Old / Breed: Great Dane / Sex: Female / Rescue: SAAP
”Meet River a purebred Great Dane. River is a beautiful gal looking for her furever. She met a resident SAAP alum and did great. River road quietly in the car. She met several staff members at our vet and immediately welcomed pets from them. River also knew to potty outside. She went into the crate fine and is resting after her long day of travel and vetting. River is seventy pounds now but definitely needs weight and will probably grow more! River seems to have a great disposition that would be perfect for any home. She walked well on a leash and proper training would allow River to shine! Adopt River at adoptastray.com!”

Sweetie
Age: 2 Years Old / Breed: Terrier Pug Mix / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
”Sweetie came into rescue from a hoarding situation where several dogs were left in a house by themselves. Her skin is still healing from the previous flea infestation. As her name implies this little girl is a Sweetie! She is very timid and fearful but wants to trust humans. Given a little time she wants love and pets. Her curly tail makes it seem like she is mixed with a pug, but she also resembles a terrier. She is an 18lb, 2 year old girl. She needs someone willing to give her the love and encouragement to flourish. She is potty pad trained but has no experience walking on a leash. Sweetie's adoption fee is $400.”
