Story
Hello, My heart breaks just doing this. We are animal lovers and This is extremely hard I brought Teddy from Spain last April 2023. He wa sborn on March 5th 2022. I adopted him when he was just 5-6 weeks old. We really looked like a Teddy bear. It was my son's dog, but my daughter in law had a baby and he was to playful and rambunctious so he lived with my elderly parents for a while. He stayed outside where he could run play in the yard and so some hunting. He is a mix of Andalusian podenco (hound). He is used to be outdoors. Our community doesn't allow us to build a fence and he doesn't get a long great with My beagle and toy Chihuahua. I also have 2 cats and he gets along with them for the most part, but he doesn't get along great with my other dogs. They kind of tolerate him, but that's it. Also, my family from overseas will come over soon and he cannot stay inside with my 8 month old granddaughter. He is a great dog, and so cute but it is just simply not compatible.

Story
Monty is the most adorable, lovable dog ever! He likes nothing better to give kisses and sit and cuddle. He loves his brother Murphy more than anything, and we would love that they could go to a forever home together. They play, take care of each other, they are truly best buds. Monty does bark around strangers, but settles down very quickly. He is calm, happy, energetic and a joy to have around. It is breaking our hearts we have to give them up, but we have landlord issues that keep us from keeping them in our new place. Monty, along with Murphy will definitely be a joy in your life, as they have for ours the last 8 years.

Story
Meet Comet! Comet is a 9 year old intelligent, sweet chow chow/golden retriever mutt (and a few other mixes). He is fixed, up to date on shots, fixed, house broken, well-mannered and knows lots of commands. He is approximately 48lbs and loves a walk on the beach, nice breeze, cheese and being by your side. He is absolutely a couch potato and enjoys being in your presence but lounging around. He is very low-energy, only barks when someone is at the door and is extremely food-motivated. He has been socialized with cats (although still gets very excited and chases them at first), but does not prefer other dogs or young children. Comet needs someone with the time, resources and finances to spend getting him more comfortable with people, the vet and other potential stressful situations. Due to Comet being a former rescue, he has past trauma and trust issues and will snip/bite when scared.

Story
I acquired my pet from a local breeder when he was 8/9 weeks old. He was born on october 26th, 2016. He will be 8 this october. Hes got a lot of energy for a 7 year old doberman. He needs a home where the owners dote on him and take hom for lots of walks daily. Needs at least 2 long walks a day. He loves affection and an ideal iwner would be someone who makes him the center of attention daily. Hes great with kids, but he really needs an owner who wont put him 2nd. He is house broken, but he pulls hard on walks. Hes great with kids and people. Never aggressive, no food aggressive issues either. Super loving dog. Hes the best temperment dog iv ever been around. He understands basic commands. Stay, sit, paw. He is stubborn so you have to have patience with him. He loves to play.
