Update: Update: FLOYD, a 51-lb, 6-year-old neutered male mixed breed, is calm and a tad shy, which means he lets you take the lead. He doesn't walk in front of you indoors or outdoors. He knows how to get comfy! He loves rolling up blankets into pillows or sleeping on his back on the couch.
HARVEY, a 58-lb, 7-year-old neutered black lab, is a ham and always smiling. He's a social butterfly. He tries to provoke Floyd (or you) to play. But he does know when to lay down and relax (and he likes to lay on the couch backwards). He loves begging for belly rubs. He will come over to you, throw himself down and roll onto his back. He loves toys and will parade them around the room in front of you.
Update: Harvey & Floyd visited the adoption event in search of their forever homes. They didn't find them, but they did charm everyone they meet. This shy but sweet pair blossoms in the safety of a home. Harvey easily took some yummy treats, and Floyd took a little longer to warm up. If you are looking for an easy pair of dogs that just wants to snuggle on the couch, play in the fenced yard, and will give you years of love, Floyd and Harvey are your pair!
Update: Update: Floyd and Harvey are a low-maintenance bonded pair with great house manners.

Floyd and Harvey have been dreaming of a forever home. They are super sweet, gentle, and smart. Super low maintenance and and they love playing outside. They know basic commands and like playing with squeak toys. Floyd and Harvey like snoozing on the couch and hanging out with their people.
Update: Happy Harvey and Five-o-Clock-Shadow Floyd (my newest nickname for him) have been enjoying themselves with toys or laying out in the sun. They are so easy--and eager--to please! These boys demand so little, and are ready for their forever family!
Update: Harvey and Floyd took a walk with their fosters yesterday. Harvey walks ok and needs some correction, but he does not try to run or act wild. He wants to walk ahead a little but he didn't seem to be pulling. Floyd is calm and heels on his own. Floyd has a bit of a fear of thunderstorms and hides until they are over. He prefers dark corners in the basement where is quieter. Harvey loves chasing a ball and he sometimes tries to get Floyd to play. They will play a little bit. The boys are really are so well behaved and you can easily tell that really love one another. They wait for each other in the yard and go in and outside together. They are very low maintenance, lovable pups.

Update: Floyd and Harvey are an awesome duo. If you've ever thought two dogs were a lot of work, this dynamic duo will prove you wrong. They are low-maintenance and easy-going, with great manners. They are smart and already trained. They know sit, down, give paw, get toy, leave it, etc. Both boys are house trained and have had no accidents. They are crate trained but don't need one and are gentle and well mannered. Floyd and Harvey know when to play and when its time to relax. They are great pups!

Update: Floyd and Harvey are loving being out of the kennel and are happy to be in their foster home! They are a constant source of entertainment for their foster parents with their silly, playful personalities! They love the yard and are happy to be running off their pent up energy. Floyd is shy at first, but very polite and calm. He's warmed up to his foster parents and likes to follow their lead. He lets you lead while on walks and doesn't try to walk ahead of you. Floyd takes food and treats nicely from your hard. Harvey is a goofy, playful pup. He could use a bit of work on his leash skills, but knows lots of commands like sit, down, come and "get it" when asking for a toy. Both boys have done nicely in their crates for short periods of time during the day, and at night. They both really enjoy lounging on the couch and have great house manners; no counter surfing and house trained.
