Story
Auggie is a nice dog, but he does not realize how big he is. When the kids are over he runs to get out the door or anywhere and knocks them down he even pushes us out the way. The little dogs bark at him sometimes he pushes them with his head again doesn’t realize how big he is and they slam against the wall. Other than that he is a good dog he just sits there or wants to play fetch, he loves the water but gets ear infections easily. Auggie is a good dog we just can’t take care of him like we can.

Story
Hi my name is Matt and my daughter found her in a school bathroom. When we found her, she had signs of her being abused and starved. We took her and she’s the sweetest dog ever, however I rent a house and I can't keep her. I hope you take a moment to see her and see how friendly she is. If I owned my own place, I would surely keep her. She's on a list to be surrendered at the SPCA and I'd rather she find a good home.

Story
Hello all! We are looking to rehome our beloved dog Po, due to our situation we can no longer provide a comfort living environment for Po. Po is a mix between Australian shepherd and black lab, he is very protective and very comfortable with the people he trust. He loves being outdoors however we believe being in an enclosed and certified environment would best benefit him, and potentially ease himself into becoming more of an inside dog. He’s very cute and adorable and absolutely loves belly rubs and head scractes behind his ears. He’s comfortable with other dogs although a bit protective of himself with time he opens up to other dogs and same goes with other people. It’s ABSOLUTELY important that he is in a well fenced yard, for that is why we are having to rehome him. If interested please contact me as soon as possible and we will be making sure that our dear Po goes to a places where he could thrive better.

Story
Vaida is a very sweet, loving dog. She gets along great with other dogs, loves children and to be outside. I don’t have a big enough backyard for her (my backyard is a pool with no grass or space for her to play). She will be two years old May 4. Vaida is very easy to train and treat happy. She kennels at night and loves to be in her kennel when she sleeps. She’s energetic , very happy and willing to please everyone. I got her from a neighbor who found a litter in the backyard of someone’s home. I have fostered her since she was four months old! She will be so missed by my family but I feel she will be happier with a better home than what I can give her. Please get in touch with any questions, you should meet her!
