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
Hello, I'm Pugsy! I'm a rambunctious, energetic bundle of 'Puggy' Fun. I am a 1 year old, 18lbs., neutered male Pug. I am all about playing, running around, and just having a great time. The staff here say that pugs aren't know for their speed but they are amazed at the velocity of my zoomies! I'm working on my sharing (I like my things to stay mine) so right now I would do best in a home with older teens and possibly no other resident dogs. I'm working on my sharing though and the volunteers here tell me a good boy every time I trade! I love food so, I'm getting better at trading with yummy treats.
