Reno
Partially Sponsored Adoption to Approved Homes!

Meet Reno!  Reno is a great dog that is incredibly sweet and has always been a house dog. As far as we can tell he gets along with everyone and is a mild mannered dog.  He is strong but leash trained. He wants to escape whenever he can so be aware of that, but that's the worst thing I can tell of his personality.  He would make anyone a great companion.

Sweet Senior

Meet our precious, sweet Senior boy Goliath James. This precious boy is about ten years old and is so full of love that I do not see how anyone could not immediately fall in love with him.  He is partially deaf, but it does not stop him.  He is fully potty trained, walks amazingly well on a leash, gets along with everyone he meets and just cannot get enough love and attention.  He is a perfect companion.  He has a few bumps that are more than likely nothing, but we have to get them checked out at the veterinarian appointment that is coming up.  Please get me your application, this sweet soul deserves the best home possible.

Meet Kai

Mixed Male

Partially Sponsored Adoption to Approved Homes!

Meet Kai!  He is not your typical lab mix.  He is very strong, very high energy, stubborn and a picky eater.  He walks well on a leash but will need a very active family.  He gets bored easy and always needs something to engage him.  He is very intelligent and protective of everything he loves.  He would do best in a family with no small children because he is big and goofy and doesn't realize his size.  He  would do best as an only dog or someone that understands dog behavior.  Because he is an attention hog and gets jealous easily.  If you have the need for a bull-headed big lab mix boy, Kai is your dog.  Get me your application ASAP.

Meet Phill!  Phill is here looking for his forever home!  Phill was a bottle baby and is extremely affectionate and loving.  He is the sweetest of the litter by far.  He requires a fenced in yard, and someone that is able to handle a large breed dog when he is fully grown. He is a very large dog when fully grown.  He is not an apartment dog, and will require lots of room to run and move.  If Phill seems like he may be a good fit, please get me your application ASAP.

Cane Corso Mixed Breed

angelica.jpg
Meet Angelica
Deposit Required

Meet Angelica...  She seems to have the same personality as the Rugrat character she is named after.  She is very sweet and adorable, but is hyper and happy.  She would not be a good fit for small children or cats/small animals because she likes to nibble a lot and plays rough.  She is a puppy, but we are telling their personalities to try and get the best fit for each.  We are reserving these puppies for fenced in yard homes only and no apartments.  To meet Angelica, get me your application ASAP.  SL268240

tommy.jpg
 Tommy
Deposit Required

Meet Tommy.  Tommy is the typical happy to be around everyone puppy.  He loves love and loves to be held.  He would be a great fit for any home.  He is playful and does have a high energy, as with all of them.  Fenced yard is required.  No apartments.

Meet Samson
 

Male Aussie Mix
Deposit Required

Meet Samson!  Samson is the sweetest, most playful little pup you could ever meet!  He will cuddle you or play fetch or with toys until his little sleepy head falls into a deep slumber.  He is young but is a working breed puppy.  This means he will herd anything he can as he gets older and that includes children.  That means he will coral them and nip at ankles.  He will not be an apartment puppy and requires a lot of space to roam.  If you feel Samson will be a good fit for you, please get me your application ASAP.

Meet Chowder
 

female, altered one year old, potty and crate trained

Meet Chowder.  Chowder is a very strong spirited young girl that is a very quick learner and needs help with training.  She is very high energy, and a fenced yard is a requirement.  The perfect fit for Chowder would be a very active lifestyle person or couple that would want a dog to be a companion to go on car rides and play ball or take on walks or go camping.  Chowder is dog selective so would do best as an only dog home.  Since she is so strong, I would say an adult only home at this point.  She will be going to dog training classes soon as well.  To meet Chowder or learn more about her, please contact me ASAP.  SL268240
