Story
Kona is a shepard mix born April 8, 2021. She is a wonderful kind dog, great with other dogs, kids and cats. We have zero issues with her except that we live on ranch without fences, she likes to travel. She needs a home with a fence. I don't want to kennel her when that is not what she is used to. We would like to find a home for her that she can be free but fenced, not able to roam and possibly get hurt or injured.

Luna

Akita

Female, Puppy
Arnold, CA
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Luna was picked up with her sister Lucy at 12 weeks old and they have both developed littermate syndrome and there’s not enough space in our house to separate them. We believe she is either Akita/Lab or Akita/Shepard mix. Luna is incredibly smart and food motivated, she has learned sit, touch, up, and spin within hours. She loves to cuddle and play in the snow. As an akita, she has a “stubborn” streak but we’ve found that rewarding good behavior with treats has made a huge impact on her focus and attention. Please reach out for more information or photos.

Good with kids, Good with dogs, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
I fostered Aspen because, unfortunately, the family before, could no longer provide the attention for him. He is 1 years old, so he’s still a puppy. I am looking for a family that will be able to give him the extra love and attention that he needs, and someone who has the patience to train him. He is a very curious guy who enjoys long walks. He is a big ol’ love bug! He loves to cuddle, socialize, play, and most importantly, belly rubs!

Story
Bear does not like to be around the little one. Great dog protects the house and alerts us to any visitors. Just that we have toddlers and have to watch him around them. He barks at them when they get close to him. We would like to see him go to someone with older kids and room to run.

Good with kids, Good with dogs, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
This is Ollie and she is a LOVE. She wandered on to our property and we had hoped to keep her since she was so great with our Golden and our 4 year old son. Unfortunately our place isn’t fenced and she likes to wander. We are worried she will get hit by a car or picked up by animal control. So I would recommend a house with fencing. Don’t know how she is with cats but she is GREAT with dogs and lets my kid ride her like a horse. She’s a really special girl.

Story
💥 ADOPT A SERVICE DOG!! 💥 Tons of disabilities can be mitigated and qualify for service dog assistance. Both of these dogs have the right temperament and are ready for service dog work! If you have a mental or physical disability or major health issue, contact us, and we can help coach you through the service dog training process. 》SKY & TAKODA can join our SERVICE DOG training class for FREE if someone with a disability is willing to adopt and train either of them. He would also make a great pet! __________ __________ Sky was picked up off the streets and then surrendered by the owner listed on the microchip. He is a gorgeous dog with a rock solid temperament. He was even being prepped to be a service dog, so if you have any special needs we can accommodate. He is very playful and energetic and so will need somebody who is active enough to keep him occupied. This dog is energetic and somewhat assertive but not at all aggressive and listens well to boundaries set by other dogs... He would love another similar-sized dog to play with who is confident enough to become friends and a Person or family who is willing to train him. >> Huskies are very smart and very vocal, although TAKODA only howls or yelps when he is being left in a kennel but really wants to be with his family. ***He has been known to be an ESCAPE ARTIST by bolting out doors and gates, but this can be managed with a few training tips... and occasionally digging under fences, but once he is bonded with his family, he should have no desire to go anywhere.
