Story
**Adoptions are currently by appointment only. If you're interested in adopting, please start by clicking the "Apply for Adoption" button above** Hi everyone! My name is Kaiser, and I'm basically a giant puppy in a middle-aged body. I enjoy running around and getting goofy with my buddies, and being silly with my toys. I'm also quite the cuddler, and have an adorable smile. I came in with my buddy Lexi, and while we're not bonded, we do enjoy each other's company quite a lot and could easily go home together.

*Adoptions are currently by appointment. If you'd like to learn more or you are interested in adopting, please use the "Apply for Adoption" button to complete our adoption survey.* Hi everyone, Kodi here. I'm just a big ol' softy looking for a kind and gentle adopter who's game for lots of cuddles, walks, and playdates with other friendly doggos. I'm a big fan of training, and have already learned some fun tricks and skills. When you come meet me, make sure to take me for a walk so that I can show off how attentive to my handler I am, and how much progress I've made on my loose leash walking skills. I also happen to look super cute while sitting and staring up at my human with unadulterated love. What are we waiting for? I'm ready to move in with my new family, and start my next chapter!

**Adoptions are currently by appointment only. If you're interested in adopting, please start by clicking the "Apply for Adoption" button above** Han Solo (or Han as we've been calling him) is a very sweet, very scared dog who is looking for a very special human to take him home and help him build up some confidence. While Han is very scared, he has never shown any aggression, and clearly wants to interact...he just needs to learn to trust. It can be very rewarding to work with a scared dog like Han, but this is going to be a slow process that requires patience and understanding. If you'd like to learn more about sweet Han, give us a call and talk to a member of the dog-team.
