Story
Alley is a 6 year old chihuahua/dachsund mix that would love to stay with her sister, Harley. They were recently surrendered when their owner had to move and could not take them along. They are reported to be dog and child friendly, potty trained, and ride well in the car, though any adopter should be prepared for transitional accidents while they learn a new schedule.

Story
Uncle Bud entered the shelter system when his elderly owner passed away. He is reported to be dog and cat friendly and per the surrender form was using potty pads but while staying with a family member and with another dog, he was marking in the home. He will be neutered prior to adoption so in time, those tendencies may decrease, but also, as he settles into his new home, those tendencies will decrease as well but any adopter should be patient through potty training and the marking transition. The surrender paperwork indicated that he is friendly with everyone, and despite being a bit nervous, we don't have concerns but his vet records reports that he does have a bite record on file with our local animal control. Though we don't know the circumstances, it was from 3 years ago when a caretaker entered the home and brought their child along. Based on this information, we would suggest no toddlers and keeping Uncle Bud contained when visitors enter the home.
