At Baypath, we do our best to collect both behavior and medical histories on our animals, as well as do our own evaluations and observations. We gather as much information as we can to suggest what we believe to be the ideal situation for each animal. We do this in the interest of the animal's quality of life as well as to assist our potential adopters. As always, safety is of the utmost importance in our decision making process.

We are always more than happy to discuss our animals with you and highly encourage you to call or email the shelter at info@baypathhumane.org if you have any questions or want more information regarding any of our animals.

1 year 6 month old male mixed
Ford arrived at Baypath by way of West Virginia. Ford is an energetic young guy who is looking for an active family. He is definitely in need of some basic obedience training but he seems pretty sharp so I think he'll like the chance to flex his brain muscle! Since Ford just arrived we are still learning about him so feel free to come in during our adoption hours to meet him and learn more about him. You are also welcome to call the shelter with your questions.
7 year old male mixed
Fenton just arrived at Baypath from West Virginia and is adjusting to his new surroundings. He enjoys hanging out with his friend, Ford, and had other dog friends in his foster home in West Virginia. He is a calm older guy, and is always up for a nice long walk. His foster mom found him as a stray, and introduced him to walking on leash. Since he is a little reserved and nervous, we recommend a home with respectful teenagers or older. We are still learning about him, so please call the shelter for more info or come and meet him today!
3 month old female mixed in foster

Sasha is in a temporary foster home so please email foster@baypathhumane.org for more info.

2 year 1 month old female heeler mix
If you've always dreamed of a dog who can master agility or special tricks, Margie may just be the girl for you! Like most young "heeler" dogs, she's happiest when she has a fun activity to keep her busy mind active, and she's having a blast checking out our agility equipment. She's also super playful and loves checking out new toys. She's had a bit of a rough start to life, but she isn't letting that hold her back! Once she gets to know you, she loves to have her cheeks rubbed. She is a little nervous and shy at first, and we recommend a home with kids 13 or older. She does well with other dogs with a proper introduction. Please come and meet her today!
6 year 1 month old female mixed
Sawyer, our gentle giant, is more than ready to greet her new family. Could it be you? True to her size, Sawyer's big, loving heart is sure to win you over. She gets so excited to greet her friends, with a big grin on her face every time and her paws tapping in excitement. She loves walks in the woods, with a great nose for adventure. Afterwards, she's more than happy to curl up for a snooze on her bed. Sawyer will do best in a quiet neighborhood because she definitely has a voice when she hears strange noises. Apartment/condo living is not for her. Come meet this beauty today!

4 year 1 month old male mixed in foster
Could this handsome boy be named anything other than Bo? This energetic pup made the long trip up from a rural shelter down in Texas and is still settling into his new environment here with us. He is a sweetheart with an exuberant play style. He loves barreling after toys thrown for him and has been known to steal a blanket or two! He would really benefit from positive reinforcement training to master some skills, gain confidence, and learn to become a well-mannered canine member of society. Bo would do best in a mature home with adults who have experience enriching and working with active dogs. We think he may be able to live alongside another dog, but it always depends on a meet. Please email foster@baypathhumane.org for more info on this sweet boy!
5 year 1 month old male mixed breed in foster
Meet Matthew! This sweet boy likes nothing more than to sit close to his human. Once he knows you're a friend, you are immediately considered a close friend and he'll loyally be by your side. He is full of energy and starts to wiggle with excitement when he hears the word "walk". With a nose for adventure, he loves to go sniffing around and would make a fantastic walking partner. Eager to please, Matthew has taken to training like a champ- he's already mastered "sit" and "stay", and is eager to learn more! This sweetheart has had a lot of sudden adjustment in his life, so we're looking to find a well-suited, quiet, adult home for him to comfortably settle into. Check out his video by clicking on the movie icon (top right corner)!!! Then email us at foster@baypathhumane.org to learn more!

11 month old female mix in foster
Without a ton of human experience, this goofy girl starts out shy when in a new environment, but once she warms up she is silly and sweet. Her favorite pastimes are chasing balls, toys, and sticks; snuggling on the couch; and drive by leg licks. Super food motivated, Daisy has the potential to learn quickly once she settles in. Extremely playful, she loves other dogs and cats - in her current foster home she is the one most likely to initiate play with the other pets. She has one eye and a few scars from her time on the street, but nothing seems to bother her, this tough girl was ready to run around and play just hours after having surgery. She does not need a quiet house but she will do better in a home with older or no children and with other pets. Her foster mom tells us that in the morning Daisy can be found waiting on the stairs for the family to come down and is in the middle of the fray of all the dog morning greetings, standing on her hind legs, waving her front paws in the air with her black-speckled tongue hanging out the side of her mouth. Funny and fast she loves to zoom around the backyard exploring, so a fenced in area would be ideal. She is not fully house trained but is working on it and is excellent at using pee pads as she is learning. Please email us at foster@baypathhumane.org to learn more about Daisy!
1 year 10 month old female mixed in foster
Before you fall for this sensibly-sized, stunning girl, Dara would like you to know a few things about her so you adopt her for ALL the right reasons! If you’re looking for a dog that can just jump right in and be the life of the family BBQ, may we kindly suggest another pup… sweet, sensitive Dara is looking for a low-key, active family that is willing to give her time to adjust to a new way of life. She is one of those dogs that are nervous with new people, especially men, but shows appropriate communication about her uncertainty and she can be easily managed until she gains confidence. We know from history, that if she is given time and space, she can adjust to all members of the household and be a loving family member. Watching her break out into play is a sure way of knowing that she is settling in and becoming more comfortable! She is housetrained, quiet, and can comfortably be left in the house on her own. She is a smart cookie – with a lot of training under her belt, and an eagerness to learn more! Being a young, active adult, she’ll need a home that can provide her lots of mental and physical activities! We know that she has spent a great deal of time around other dogs and has done generally well with them. While living with another dog is not an option for her, having other dog friends is! We are committed to her (and your!) success, so we would like to provide training/behavior support, if needed. If you have a pet free, adult (teens ok) home, and are looking to help this adorable lady shine in her own time, please email foster@baypathhumane.org. We’d be happy to share all we adore about Dara and how we can all set her up for success!
10 year 9 month old male chihuahua/mix in foster
Meet Mickey! Who could resist this face! This pint-sized pup will make you smile whether he's greeting you with a joyful squeal, playing with his favorite toy, cuddling on the couch, or sitting in your lap. What he lacks in stature he makes up for in personality. He loves to go for walks, riding in the car, and just hanging out with his people. His foster says his house training is going really well. Mickey would probably do best in an adult home (or older respectful teens) since he hasn’t had any experience with children. While he lived with other small dogs his entire life and enjoyed being with them, he is possessive of his stuff and can be a bit of a bossy pants so he probably would do better as a solo dog. Mickey is not at the shelter. He is currently being spoiled in his foster home while patiently waiting for his forever home. If you would like to learn more about Mickey or arrange for a meet, please email Julie at jwakstein@baypathhumane.org
7 year 6 month old female chihuahua mix in foster
Sophie and Beau are the sweetest little pair who are seeking a home together. You can't help but fall in love with these gentle souls. They adore each other and are happy to meet new people. Sophie is a clown whose antics will keep you laughing. She will leap up into your lap when you are sitting in a chair. When she’s extra happy she’ll “flip back her hair” and preen like a supermodel. Beau is a sensitive boy who finds comfort in spending time with his big sister or the people around him. You’ll often find these cuties burrowed under the covers in a big dog bed for a long afternoon nap. They have a playful side too, and like to run around and chase toys. They had never been on leash until recently and now love going for walks. We’re seeking a quiet, peaceful home with adults or older (13+) gentle children due to the dogs’ sensitive nature. They’ve lived well with other dogs, but probably wouldn't do well with cats. Sophie and Beau are about seven years old, and have spent much of their time inside. It would be ideal for them to have a small fenced-in yard to keep them on track with their house training. You will be rewarded with endless cuddles! Sophie and Beau aren’t at the shelter so please contact Julie at jwakstein@baypathhumane.org to learn more about these adorable siblings!
1 year 5 month old male mixed breed in foster
Sometimes you come across one those dogs who is a true gem under a rough coat, and without some diligence, consistency, and a caring foster home, it may be difficult to see the shining dog underneath. Fortunately for Chester, a foster home stepped up to help us learn a lot about Chester and how to help him enjoy life as a loved and settled family member. With the support of his foster family, Chester has made significant strides in learning about how to meet new people, learning to feel confident when left alone, and good manners in the home (including house-training). While this is a continuing journey for Chester, we can’t help but celebrate the amazing progress he’s made in the last several weeks! If you have a patient, dog experienced family, and you are looking for a notably affectionate and loyal dog, here’s a little more about Chester: He will need help adjusting to spending time on his own (we can help support your family and Chester with this process). He would do best with a securely fenced yard that isn’t accessible to many people and dogs passing by. As long as Chester has access to regular physical and mental exercise typical for a young adult dog, he will settle and be calm around the house. He is house-trained, but will likely need a little help with consistency in the beginning. Since he sometimes has issues sharing possessions, we are recommending a home with adults or older teens. If you’d like to help Chester live the good life and be the companion he truly loves to be, please inquire at foster@baypathhumane.org. We look forward to answering any questions you may have!
11 year old male mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Meet Spencer -- or Mr. Wiggle Butt as his foster family affectionately calls him! He's a social butterfly who's excited to greet new people as friends. This happy boy loves nothing better than to snuggle under the covers with his humans. Rub his super soft belly and he'll be your best pal! Fetch is Spencer's favorite pastime and he'll leap in the air to catch a ball or a toy. He enjoys going out on hikes in the woods, and then curling up on his bed afterwards with a nice stuffy toy. Spencer is a smart cookie is already knows how to sit and give paw, walks politely on a leash, is house trained, and is a dream in the car. His foster parents shared that he's a very good boy who loves to chill out on the sofa after a walk and is very good in the house and out. Spencer is looking for an adult home where he can be your one-and-only pet. Because Spencer has been bounced around a lot in his life, he does take time to acclimate to his new home, so he’ll need a patient, loving adopter who can spend some extra time with him in the early weeks when he’s transitioning to a new home to help him get comfortable. Our staff can provide many resources to help set you up for success. He just needs someone who understands that Spencer will be a delight to have in your home once he settles in. ** Spencer is hanging out in a temporary foster home, so please contact us at foster@baypathhumane.org for more info about this big love and his application process!
1 year 5 month old male mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix
Forest is a handsome young dog who is looking for a family who likes to go for walks, play balls, etc. Forest lived in a home with young children and his energy level was too much for them so a home with older children/teenagers would be best for him. With proper introduction Forest seems to do well with other dogs. Forest, like so many dogs, is going to benefit from attending training classes. The classes are a great way to build a dog's confidence and it is helpful for people to build a relationship with their dog. If you think you are a good match for Forest, come meet him today!
12 year 6 month old female mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
It's always our seniors that grab us tightest by the heartstrings. Gretta is no exception. This girl is super friendly and sure to win your heart. She'll stick to you like glue, she loves to be by your side on a long walk or chilling out on the couch. She's happiest riding in the car, soaking up the sun in the yard, or finding a cozy spot in the house to hang out! After spending most of her adult life in a shelter environment, she's not hard to please. Gretta's foster mom says she has a special way with people. "My kids say Gretta has human eyes. Her eyes tell you stories of her life, she has been and there done that; she has seen a lot yet she's still open to love." So why is she still waiting for her forever home?! You'd never guess her age from all the pep in her step. She has lots of energy to take out on squeaky toys, rope toys, and tennis balls. She's been known to dance with excitement upon being gifted with a new toy. Our lovebug is the perfect house guest - she's housetrained, wonderfully quiet, and knows several commands (stop, no, wait, sit, down, stay). She's looking to be the queen of her castle in a forever home free of other cats and dogs since she gets a little too excited when she sees them. What more could you possibly want?! If you think you could be the perfect match for our Gretta, please send your email to foster@baypathhumane.org to find out more about this delightful girl's application process!
