Story
Snow and Rosie are 5.5 years old and have been in our family since they were 7 weeks old. They are White German Shepherds. Both have been raised in the same home with our kids and are wonderful family pets. We really could not ask for better dogs. Both enjoy tennis balls and fetch. They will lay on your lap for love and comfort and sleep next to you. They also love steaks off the grill and chicken bones. Not only are we downsizing, but with our busy schedules, it has become challenging to get them the exercise and attention that they both deserve. It breaks our heart to make this difficult decision, but we know it’s time. They both have a big heart and love to sunbathe. They have not bitten anyone, no medical conditions, no surgeries, other than Rosie (female) is fixed. Snow is not fixed. All we ask is that you love them as much (if not more) than we do. Both will need a loving home, But if you are interested in only one, that is okay. Thank you.

Hi, I'm Checkers! I'm a one year old, 9lbs., neutered male Maltese mix. I'm an energetic happy little man that love to play fetch. I'm playful and do well with other dogs my size, but I need to work on my sharing. So, for now I would do best in home with older teens and a family who has had a dog like me before and is ready to help learn to share with people. My favorite game to play is fetch and I'm fantastic at it!

Story
Hiya I'm Leaf! I am a 8 month old, neutered male terrier mix who currently weighs around 22 pounds. I am an energetic little guy who can't get enough love from my favorite people! One of my favorite activities is to run zoomies so be prepared to be entertained by my antics- I am speedy! I still need to learn a lot about the world, so having a family who is excited to help me learn how to be the best dog ever is ideal. I would do best in a home that's had dogs before, and ready to handle my overly excitable nature. Do I sound like I might be your new best friend?
