Story
I acquired her from a friend of my granddaughter when she was six weeks old. The owners were moving and already had the mom and dad as pets. Deborah Ann is three years old. Her birthday is January 1. I am looking for a good home for her because I am eighty years old with chronic back problems. I have had several surgeries, and I am not able to walk Deborah or even play with her in the yard. She is very energetic but very loving. She loves to be rubbed, especially her head and chest. I want Deborah Ann to be in a home where she is properly cared for and loved. That is why I refuse to put her in a county shelter for fear that she would be euthanized.

These are my sweet sweet boys. I love them with all my heart, possibly more than myself.. but I cant care for them the way they deserve. their high value gorgeous and funny little boys and I want them to find the best home possible. They love to play & They love to sleep! They`re well behaved and can be a little clingy. They will be coming with a toy box, their walk tactical harnesses, Re-washable puppy pads, their favorite rainbow sloth and teddy bears, a half of a 30 lbs. bag of dog food and wet dog food cans and disposable puppy pads. they will boop, whine, or bark at you if they need to go potty. their only 5 months old and already have such big personalities. they will require a yard and lots of love. though their mixed, Cane corsos require a lot of attention and affection, discipline, and a firm owner. They are gorgeous and healthy boys with nothing but love to give. I want them to go to a truly loving home. They were dewormed in February (tags and paperwork will be provided)
