More about me

I'm enjoying a staycation with a Woof-derful volunteer! Contact the adoption center to schedule a meet!

Hi there, I'm Pie,
Your future fetch champion and cuddle buddy extraordinaire! I might be a bit nervous at first, but once you toss that ball, watch out! I'm all in for a game of fetch that'll make your arm sore or even chasing after a jolly ball for hours before I get tired. Which is good, because my friends here say I need to drop some pounds!
Cuddles? Oh, you bet! Once I trust you, I'm the master of snuggles and will gladly keep your spot on the couch warm. Loud noises and busy places with other dogs may ruffle my fur, but with a little patience, I promise to be your sweetest companion. I've got a heart of gold and a love for the simple joys in life. Whether it's chasing that ball, exploring the yard, or just sitting by your side, I'm all about making the most of each moment.
So, if you're looking for a solo furry friend to play fetch with and give endless love to, let's team up. We'll make fetch happen together!

Management Level: High: fearful and reactive towards strangers and dogs
Dog Compatibility: I am not compatible with other dogs.
Cat Compatibility: I am not compatible with cats.
Child Compatibility: I am not compatible with children.
Housing Restrictions: I require a fenced in yard.

Dog Care Basics

Please be patient while your dog adjusts to you and its new home. Please take your new dog directly home on a secure leash, collar or harness and try to keep it a calm environment while s/he investigates and acclimates. The transition may be somewhat stressful on your dog, and it’s best not to take it to a friend’s house, dog park, school or other busy, crowded place right away. A pet who displays a happy, playful attitude at the Adoption Center may act wary and fearful in a new environment. Please follow our Adoption Counselor’s advice during your adoption process!

Consider Getting Pet Insurance

In your adoption packet, there is information about signing up for a free trial for pet insurance. Please take advantage of this offer! It can help you save your dog’s life in the event of an unexpected accident. Additionally, you can research additional pet insurance options.

We’re Here to Help!

If you’ve viewed our Pet Behavioral Support page and still have questions, contact our Pet Help Line: (775) 324-7773, 200

Visit a Local Vet

Please take your dog to a veterinarian within two weeks of adoption to create a trusted relationship for emergencies, annual checkups, vaccinations, and on-going care.

Vaccinate Your Dog

Your new dog leaves our Adoption Center up to date on vaccinations, but you’ll need to continue its vaccinations and you may want additional ones (example: Canine Flu).

Dog Behavior

Watch for cues about how your pet is feeling. If your pet seems timid, try to move slowly, or just sit in the same room reading a book and let your pet come to you. If your pet is full of energy and ready to play, get out the toys right away. But be cautious. Pets can be both scared and full of energy. Modify your actions to make your new pet feel welcome. The care you take with your own behavior in early days will pay off in the future as your pet learns that you are someone to trust.
