Story
LEONARDIn Foster HomeDo you have room in your heart for a special-needs dog? We can tell from the way he bobs his head when stressed and circles and spins when he is excited that he has something unique going on in his little head. If we had to guess his breed, we think a terrier mix with maybe some Boston terrier, chihuahua or French bulldog in there. Leonard loves the company of other dogs and would make a great playmate for a dog who enjoys a good game of chase or wrestling. He really needs another dog around in order to be happy. Leonard has come a long way toward being potty trained, given ample opportunities to go outdoors. He also is using potty pads indoors. He has a beautiful shiny blue coat which makes him stand out from the pack. He likes to hang out with the people without having to sit on a lap or be cuddled too much. He seems to be mesmerized by things daily and is always cocking his head in the cutest way. His foster mom works from home and he LOVES that. If you have dreams of him being an obedience champion, you’ll have to let those go. He really is a very simple fella who just wants a good home with a playful dog or two and some people who will be around a lot and let him be who he is. DOB 3/15/22 18 PoundsI'm waiting for a home to call my own. email webmaster@petrefuge.com to learn more about me or fill out an application at https://www.petrefuge.com/adoptPet Refuge was formed in 1978 to help with cats and dogs in need of homes.

Story
Hi, My name is Little Nala. I have more spots on my front legs than my furbrother, Leo. He also has a mostly black right leg with a tiny white pawsie. We are besties and are hoping that someone will adopt us so we can live our lives together! Would you want to be separated from your best friend? Neither do we! I'm the sweetest most loving little lady. I love food! If you're looking for a four-legged-friend to keep your lap nice and warm, look no further! The humans here at the shelter tell me I could be a professional cuddlebug! I also like to play with toys! Fetch is one of my favorite games. We have lived with respectful kiddos in the past. We will need a little help in being housetrained. I just mentioned how much I love food. I may need to be fed separately from Leo. But that's okay, he knows I am the one who rules the roost! Leo also loves attention like I do. We are both so very friendly towards people. I think we would be happiest if it were just us two doggies in our new home. We haven't seen kitties yet but could you check back? If you are interested in becoming our snuggle-buddy for life, all you need to do is come to MHS and ask to see us. We are about three years old and are spayed/neutered. Love, Little Nala and Leo.

Story
Raggy's birthday is March 15, 2023. He is very sweet. He gives really good hugs & snuggles when asked. If you sing the words "Merry Christmas" he will howl/bark with you. He is crate trained and house trained if you take him out regularly. His favorite bone is the Dollar General $1 rawhides. He plays fetch really well and will bring it back to you. He walks on a leash very well. He has always been skiddish. Does bark if he is scared. To ask if he wants a treat, I've always called it a "cookie." Very obedient to commands: Go to bed (he will go in his cage), Sit, Hellooo(he will howl and it sounds like he is saying Hello)

Coby is available to meet by appointment only. He is an adorable Pomeranian mixed puppy that will surely liven up your life. We think he will be small to medium sized but there is no guarantee.Coby may be shy at first but he warms up quickly and loves to sit in your lap and crave your attention. As with all puppies he will need training. Coby will probably do best with children over 5 since he is still young and a bit mouthy.
