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.

Story
FOSTER CARE! Hi everyone, I'm Hudson! I'm a 3 month old, neutered male, baby Pitbull. I weigh around 23 pounds right now, and I'll grow up to be an extra large lap dog (75-90 pounds). I'm a super friendly pup and I love everyone that I meet! I also love playing with my foster dog brother (a golden retriever) and generally have a terrific personality. Even though I'm just a baby, I'm already getting used to sleeping through the night in a kennel next to my foster mom. I'm also making progress in potty training and loves to play with toys! I've learned 'sit', 'touch' and 'no-no'. Even thought I'm super smart, I'm still just a baby so I would do best with someone that has lots of time and love to give me! As a baby, I'm not quite ready to be left alone. I'm gentle with my mouthing, love to cuddle in laps to sleep, getting the hang of fetch and chases patches of sun around the house to nap. I have tons of puppy personality and generally is a joy. Hudson AID# A941727 Since I’m not at the adoption center, you can make arrangements to meet me by emailing behavior@phs-spca.org You may also submit your fully completed Adoption Profile Form to behavior@phs-spca.org and a staff member will call you to conduct a phone interview before making an appointment to meet me in person.
