Story
Blizz is a 2 year old unspayed female. We acquired her from a Craigslist seller when she was 4 months old. She is up to date on all vaccines. She is a super energetic, friendly, kind dog who needs a family that has the space and time to give her attention and love that she requires. She loves humans and other fur babies. She is house trained and knows how to sit, stay, speak, and give her paw. Most importantly, she loves her brother Orion. We are looking to rehome them together since they are bonded.

Story
Nugget was my aunt’s dog who recently passed away. However, he doesn’t get along with our older pooch and I want to find him a loving home that with shower him with kisses and cuddles. He’s a huge cuddle bug and is happy to just nap while you work either on your lap or on his bed. He knows a few tricks like sit, shake, touch, and my personal favorite high-five! He’s a foodie and loves everything you feed him, so don’t leave food at a level he can reach! He’s sassy and has a lot to say, I love having conversations with him. The adoption fee is to make sure you’re serious but also to offset the cost of his personal items that I’ll be giving his new owners. I have his recent vet record and am more than happy to answer any questions you may have :)

KAZHEM

Akita

Male, 5 yrs 10 mos
Alameda, CA
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Kazhem is a very handsome, somewhat shy Akita mix who warms up slowly to new people. But once he is comfortable he will share his goofy personality with you, running zoomies in the grass and showing off his great smile and happy tail wag.He gets along great with other dogs on the beach, the trails and probably in the dog park, but would prefer to be the only doggo in his forever home. Once Kazhem bonds with you he`s very devoted and wants to be with you all the time. Retirees, professionals who work at home, and anyone else who could make him a part of their daily life would be his dream family!
