Story
Asher is a beautiful boy. He is protective in personality and would do well with some one familiar with guard breeds. We are having a baby and cannot keep him. He is a deaf dog but understands sign language. He can run off leash and will return to your side. He would be a great police or search dog as his nose is impeccable. Please adopt Asher. He is a good dog just has a high prey drive and further training.

Story
Dozer is a good dog overall. He’s a loving dog that likes to be pet and hang out. He’s always down to hang out at home or go for a ride. Dozer is 8 years old and is still very mobile. He has a littermate that he runs off with. If they get outside they are gone! If they go outside alone they’re both fine and come right back in after doing their business. Please reach out if you have any questions.

Story
Loki is almost 3 years old. We have had him since he was a puppy. He is a very active and playful dog who doesn’t realize how big he is sometimes. He takes medication for anxiety daily mainly because of separation anxiety. We love our dog but don’t have the time to dedicate to him as he deserves. We are also planning on relocating to another state soon and will be unable to take him with us.
