Story
She is a 40-pound, 16-month-old Australian Shepherd. She is friendly and clingy, loving people more than other dogs. This was also the reason I chose her; she was the only puppy in the litter that stayed by my side. I am looking for a stable home. The most important thing is having flexible working hours to spend time with her and provide at least 1-2 hours of exercise daily. Ideally, I prefer living in a house so she can have more space to play.

Story
Lotte is a very sweet puppy with a lot of personality already. She is very loving and just wants to be around you all the time. She already has a lot of energy and is very confident. She can be pretty nippy so you have to be patient with her and willing to teach her. She is very smart she knows to use a potty pad and occasionally has accidents. She already knows sit and is working on paw and stay. She sleeps in her crate and will go into it for naps if not napping with you. She is a very food motivated girl and gets very excited to eat and loves treats. She loves chews such as small bully sticks, beef tendons, and rabbit feet. She will be up to date with her shots, she is a really good puppy and we really would love to keep her and just want to make sure she goes to the best home possible. She is going to be a great dog and would do best with someone who is patient and has an active lifestyle. Would also love updates on her and how she is doing!

Story
Hi future parents, my name it’s Lobito I am 10 months old currently. I am looking for a forever home where I can have a backyard to play and run all over I am a high energy breed and needs lots of exercise daily! I’m a loyal and protective dog who can be trained to be better, I love to spend time with my owners and take walks. My mommy can’t take care of me as the result that my new human brother is allergic to dogs but my mommy will have me until she finds a good home/parents for me. (IF YOU HAVE A ANOTHER DOG DO NOT EXPECT ME TO GET ALONG RIGHT AWAY I HAVE A BROTHER CHIHUAHUA AND I LOVE HIM BUT IT TOOK A FEW WALKS ON A LEASH WITH HIM TO GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER.) Do not waste my time if you are not serious do not send an application.
