Story
Rylo has been my best friend for about 5 years now. He’s has been a loyal and very protective companion. But with the birth of my son and another child on the way, we have a hard time allowing my son to really interact with Rylo because kids are rambunctious and at the end of the day, a dog is a dog. So I’m looking for someone who at least has some knowledge of the pit bull breed and can give Rylo a better home than what we’re allowing. He’s great with people but has some dog aggression. He insist on dominating any dogs he comes across. But he would moke a great addition to a home that doesn’t already have pets.

Story
Zeus was rescued from a home where he was crated and put in a diaper on and off for a few years. We have been fostering him for a few months now and he is sweet, affectionate, and so deserving of a calm home he can be loved in. Because of his past he has behavioral issues like randomly peeing in the home, and nipping at strangers wheb he FIRST meets them. If he doesnt nip right away, it won't happen. I do not know the last time he was taken to the vet but he is rumored to be around 13 years old. He doesnt show aggression being handled or groomed. The only time he lashes out is meeting new people and being disaplined for peeing. We use a spray bottle instead, that seems to work ok. He does well with children, the last home he was in had a 2 year old with no incidents. He ONLY bites new people and ONLY once. Its bizzare, I think a PTSD response from his past. We have 2 dogs and chickens that have not had a problem with him at all. He also does great on walks.

Story
We are devastated to have to rehome our beautiful 6 y/o havanese/cavalier King Charles, Sasha. She weighs about 15 lbs. We rescued her at 1 y/o. She is very sweet and cuddly and loves attention once she is comfortable with you, but does not like to be picked up. Unfortunately, she has some behavioral issues. We had gotten to a point where her aggressive side was manageable, but the unpredictability of our small children just makes this a bad environment for her. She will bite. She is very smart and trainable. She graduated from a board and train program at Sit Means Sit and can go back anytime for free group lessons. Sadly, she also has a bad back. This has been manageable with monthly Adequan injections, medication, and monthly chiropractic visits, but costs us about $180 a month. Please consider saving this beautiful baby!
