About Julie Anderson:
“I have been working professionally with dogs since 2009, and in that time have worked with hundreds of dogs. I have worked with intense reactivity, crippling fear and everything in between. I use a science based behavioral approach that is both fast and effective in changing a dog’s behavior. I believe our dogs do best when we set them up for success! My methods are fun for both human and dog, and I don’t use any methods that will cause pain or fear in your dog. You can expect to see a noticeable difference after one session.

I am a Certified Dog Trainer and Professional Member of the IACP (International Association of Canine Professionals). It is an organization established to maintain the highest professional and business standards among canine professionals.”

What’s not to love about Big Sheep? He has the sweetest and most gentle disposition and always seems to have a smile on his face!

We are looking for a foster home for Big Sheep because…well, we think he’d love it! He’s an older guy which means he doesn’t need a lot of exercise, he’s very well mannered and seems to be housebroken! (He wont even go to the bathroom in his kennel at the Shelter!) He gets along with other dogs, loves people and seems like he wants to play with kitties.


Big Sheep is looking for a foster home so he can kick back and have some fun away from the shelter. Fostering him can be long or short term and we are happy to work with your schedule!

If you would be willing to open your heart (and home) to this guy, you will be his hero! If interested in fostering, please visit: and a member of the shelter staff will contact you to go over questions you may have and to complete the process!

Meet Pet of the Week, Roxy!
