Story
My family and I are needing to rehome our 6 year old German Shepherd, Kora. She is great with people, children, cats, and small animals such as chincillas and rabbits, however she has randomly attacked our small dogs over the past year, some occurrences happed extremely close to our toddlers. She knows basic commands such as sit, lay, shake and stay. Walks well on a leash and is spayed. She is currently an indoor and outdoor dog. I am really wanting to find a long term, loving home for her; somewhere she can flourish and not have to be separated from our family/our other dogs. Free to a good home.

Story
Oliver is around a year old, He is great with large and small dogs, cats, kids and LOVES people! We got him from CVAC. We wanted to foster but they pushed us into adopting him. We have had him for 6 months, in that time we have worked on training him so he can find the best home possible. He is crate trained, house trained, rings the bell to go outside to potty, sits before exiting and entering the house, plays fetch and will drop the ball and will sit before getting pets. His favorite things are playing fetch and snuggling on the couch. He needs a home with more energy than we can give him

Story
I rescued this adorable puppy in September from a shelter. She was turned in as a stray. She is approximately 12 months old. Loves kids and dogs of all breeds. Loves the dog park and love to ride in the car. She snuggles and sleeps in bed with her humans. She's an absolute love bug with beautiful blue eyes. Everyone at the dog park adores her. I am absolutely heartbroken to have to re home her. I travel for work and my husband is no longer able to care for her when I'm gone.

Story
Meet Dwight. This lover boy is 4 years old and just loves to be loved. Dwight was born deaf and requires a lot of affection and reassurance. But I promise you he is so loveable and silly. He is either following us around or his brother Kygo. Ideally we would love to rehome Dwight and Kygo together but it is not a requirement. Because he is deaf, he does not know how loud he can be nor does he understand personal space. He is just the sweetest deaf boy just trying to get some pets and cuddles from everyone.

Story
Meet Kygo. This good boy is 5 years old and such a sweet boy. We hate to have to rehome him but our family is growing and our careers are too demanding to be able to give him the time and attention he needs. He currently have two brothers so does well with other dogs. Ideally we'd love for him to go with his brother Dwight who is deaf but it is not a requirement. We just want to know he is going to a loving home where he can run around, cuddle and take his naps. Kygo loves belly rubs, loves going on walks and also knows how to relax and take naps.

Story
Baby Bear is a 9 year old pitbull mix. He was rescued on November 14 of 2014. We estimated he was 3 months at the time, we found him crated and abandoned. It took a long time to get where we are now, he was a hard rescue to train because he was so frightened from the moment we found him. He is house trained and knows MANY commands and is always learning. He is not good with other animals and unfortunately we found out he is not good with babies. We have a 5 week old at home, he was doing well until recently. We believe he sees the baby as an animal and wants to attack the baby. Due to this we need to find a new home. We tried different tactics to help with the adjustment but unfortunately none have worked. He is sooooo loved and I want the best for him. Right now we are keeping him in his crate (he is crate trained) for the majority of the day which is unfair for him. He is an indoor dog and has been all his life. He had double knee surgery in 2020.
