Story
Purchased Draco from original owners in Montgomery while he was still a puppy, and he has lived with us and our other dog for almost two years. He has a lot of anxiety and a hard time listening. It is becoming hard to do things due to his anxiousness and hyperactivity. He also has an anal gland problem and always does it in the house, making my sinuses always on high. He is very good with children and loves to play and would absolutely not harm a child intentionally. We will be moving with family, and we are afraid he would accidentally hurt my grandparents from getting too excited.

Story
Meet Piglet...the most loving and affectionate dog on planet Earth. No exaggeration! She is 2-3 years old and incredibly loyal. She stays under feet constantly, and she's ALWAYS ready to have her belly rubbed. She loves toys of all shapes and sizes, and has recently discovered BeneBones to be her #1 favorite. She likes to stay stimulated! Piglet tolerates other dogs but would much prefer to be the only dog in the home. Piglet responds very well to positive reinforcement when it comes to crate/house training. She's making excellent progress! Piglet sometimes gets overexcited when giving kisses, and may accidentally knock over a small child. Her ideal home would have a fenced yard for romping and children no younger than 12 years old. Sweet Piglet was dumped in the road, back in June. She was so terrified she wouldn't move from that spot for hours. But after a few nights of safety, her heart opened up BIG. She was found with severe flea dermatitis and was mostly bald. But Piglet's fur isgrowing back beautifully!

Story
Meet Squints! A 5 month old Aussie/Border Collie mix with adorable ears and sooo many snuggles to give (he's a close sleeper). Squints also likes to party, especially with his foster fur siblings! He's currently being fostered with kitties and doing well. Squints loves to play outside and requires a home with a fenced backyard. Squints can be a touch nervous around new people, but quickly warms up when presented with his favorite penguin toy! He would do well in a home with kids who are on the calmer side. Squints is doing GREAT with potty training and thrives having a schedule. You may notice his left eye is cloudy. Sadly, when he was just a few weeks old, he sustained an injury to the eye and it developed scar tissue. But his wonky peeper doesn't impact him in the slightest! Squints is UTD on vaccinations, microchipped, and neutered.

Story
William Bo-Billiam is ready to find his forever family! William was found as a stray back in September, but once he realized how good life could be, he never looked back! This boy is super cuddly, house & crate trained, loves other dogs, and loves to play, especially with tennis balls (his favorite)! William underwent heartworm treatment several months ago, is officially off crate-rest, and has a clean bill of health! This sweet boy really is the best. We don't think William has ever met a stranger! He loves other doggos and enjoys his play time. Willam would THRIVE in an active home, where he could spend weekends catching tennis balls, to his heart's content. William is a little to excited to meet kitty friends, so we're receommending he be in a home without cats. Otherwise, he’s a perfect good boy and is going to make such a good addition to someone’s family! William is UTD on vaccinations, microchipped, and scheduled to be neutered.

Story
We rescued this sweet girl from friends when she was 6 weeks old and she is not a year and a half old. She loves my 5 year old daughter but she does not get along with our lab mix. She has also started some fights with my parent's dogs. We cannot handle a dog that is dog-aggressive and need someone who has experience with this kind of behavior issue to give her a loving home. She LOVES people! She is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met. She just cannot be around other dogs. She is not mouthy at all with people, even during her teething puppy phase she was very polite. She is however a very muscular rascal on a leash and probably needs a big yard to run around in rather than getting her exercise via leashed walks around the neighborhood. She likes to play fetch and is a good catcher and her bark is so cute and houndy! Please give this doggy a chance!

Needs special attention, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
She is a great dog, but we are moving soon and cannot take her. She is 13-14 years old. She has some arthritis in her hips so it would be best if she was in a one level home, or could stay on one level mostly and not many stairs to go out to potty. She is very loving and totally ignores cats. She is scared of thunderstorms and likes to hide under a bed or will get right next to you for comfort.
