Story
Willow came into my life and is now a 1.5 year old rescue, and immediately made life more fun. Unfortunately, due to an unexpected move, I'm sadly unable to keep her. In the meantime, a family member is providing her with a temporary home until we secure a permanent one for her. Willow does well around children and other pets, and loves cuddles and playtime with her toys. I'm in search of someone who will love Willow in the way in which she deserves, and who is able to give her the attention she needs. She enjoys outdoor play, so a new home with a secure yard would be ideal. Willow is up-to-date on heartworm and flea prevention, is house trained, and comfortable in her crate. It's with a heavy heart that I must find her a new home, but I'm committed to ensuring she continues to receive excellent care, including regular veterinary visits. Willow will come with her bed and some other items to help ease her transition into being your new best friend.

Story
We got Bo Bo back in September as a playmate for our other dog! They have been great together and Bo has been a blast to have as a pet. He is the sweetest most craziest boy ever. We unfortunately have had abrupt changes in living situations and have increased work hours and can no longer care for him in the way he deserves. I want him to go to a loving home!

Story
This is Darby, She is as much a part of our family as our children. We found her after she had been hit by a car. Her pelvis was broken, she was emaciated, and she had just had puppies. We looked for days for them and never found them. She is the most loving, calm, wonderful soul. She is almost a truly perfect dog. I am forced to rehome her because she is extreemly protective of us and went into our neighbors yard and bit thier 7 year old lab. They have involved the police and we are being forced to either euthanize her or find her a new home. I cant even explain how painful this is, she is bonded to me like a child as I spent a lot of time with her durring her healing. We are guessing she is about 3 to 5 years old. She has escape artist tendencies so a solid fence is a must. She also has had sever trauma on a leash at some point as she is petrified them along with car rides. She prefers women, but has never shown aggression with a man either. There's so much more but I'm out of words

Story
Taz is a one of a kind and mostly hairless.  Not sure which of the hairless breeds she is a mix of, however, American Hairless Terrier seems the most likely, but it could be Chinese Crested or Mexican Hairless/Xoloitzcuintle.  Taz has the watchful and energetic personality of a terrier and is a top notch mouser.  Taz has a small amount of red & white wire hair on her head and face and white wire hair on the end of her tail.  She is 37 pounds of muscle and her only known history is that she was dumped on a country road and unclaimed.  Taz hints at having been a housedog in the past.  She is spayed, heartworm negative, fully vaccinated and on monthly heartworm, flea and parasite preventives.  Taz's adoption fee is a donation to the rescue in the amount of $600.March 2, 2024, 6:18 pm
