Story
This beauty, Britney, came into the rescue with her best friends in 2022 from a local shelter. A foster quickly scooped all three up and carried them home just in time for the cold weather. Sweet Brytney has come to really enjoy the home life, but we sure would love it if she could enjoy that experience in her forever home. According to her foster, Brytney is full of life and love! Just barely bigger than an average pup this girl flip flops around 40lbs. She is a goofy girl, willing to do just about anything for a treat! She is fully house & kennel trained! Her foster has said that training her is a breeze. Brittney has an abundance of energy but listens really well and behaves on command. She loves all the friends! Brytney's foster home is on a farm. She gets along with all the animals- cows, horses, barn cats, and her other canine foster friends. When it’s time to settle in for the night, Britney loves to curl up in your lap or around your neck. She loves tummy rubs! Britney is looking to live her best life with someone who loves to have fun and go on adventures. All dogs have age appropriate vaccines including Distemper, Parvo, and Rabies.

Story
Larkspur came from a hoarding situation and with some TLC she is ready to find her forever home!  She is being fostered in a home that has dogs and kids and loves both! She is sweet, loving and loyal.  She loves to play ball and she is learning fetch.  She is still working on her leash training, but has come a long way.  It does take her her a little time to warm up due to her past situation but once she warms up she is fine. She will need someone with patience and let her know its going to be ok.  She is potty trained and knows the doggy door, she also know how to sit and doesnt jump.

Story
Kinder is a sweet girl who came to us as a stray in March of 2023. She and her brother, Kander, are very shy but they are the sweetest once they know they can trust you. Kinder loves treats and pets. She is learning that she is more of a house dog than she is a street dog- she will make someone an awesome companion. ##1780192##
