Story
Hello there; my name is Paige! I can be nervous sometimes because the world can be a scary place. I really want to say hi to you, but I'll need you to be patient as I come out of my shell. My brother Loki is showing me the ropes and he helps me build me confidence. We would love to go home together because of this; however, we are not officially bonded. I would do best in a home where another dog friend can help me learn that the world is a good place afterall. Primary Color: Brown Weight: 17 Age: 0yrs 10mths 3wks

Story
VIOLET - Violet is a well behaved, active dog that really enjoys her walks (We take three walks a day). She was rescued at two-months old and I adopted her at 5 months. She was two-years old November 22nd 2023. - - - - REHOMING: I am relocating and she can't move into the place I'm moving to. - - - - ACTIVITY: She would be a great fit for an active, somewhat experienced pet owner. - - - - TRAINING: She's trained and responds to vocal commands and hand commands. Sit, Stay, Wait, Leave it, Come, Follow, Paw. - - - - PERSONALITY: Violet is shy but not to the point of being unsocial with others. She's good with other dogs, people, and all of the children she's met on our walks. - - - - OTHER CHARACTERISTICS: Her coat is soft and short. She hardly ever barks. Truly. It must be the Basenji in her. I didn't think she would bark at all until one day she was startled by some one walking around a corner. - - - - DEADLINE: I need to find a new home for her by the third week in February 2/23.
