Story
My grandma and this gorgeous boy were a refined pair of active seniors, but she doesn’t have the energy to care for him any longer after falling sick. He doesn’t let his age get him down and is still strong, energetic, and playful as ever, and deserves a home with the energy to cater to that. Walden’s favorite activity in the world is running, and would love nothing more than a jogging partner. While he is housebroken, he needs quick and easy access to outside, as he can’t wait long to go to the bathroom due to his age. He may be hard of hearing as well, as he’s the only dog I’ve seen not care about a vacuum. Walden gathers compliments anywhere he goes, and has the charisma and kindness to match. He’s never bitten, loves children, gets along great with dogs, loves car rides, and responds very positively to petting. He doesn’t enjoy being groomed however, and while he isn’t aggressive towards cats, he seems to think of them as toys. I hope you’ll give this lovely boy a lovely home!

Story
Bre is a beautiful 9-month-old German Shepherd who is mellow for her age and wicked smart.   She is an affectionate, easy spirited girl with a zest for life. She loves going on car rides, playing fetch in the yard, adventurous outing of people watching at the sidewalk cafe or climbing the trails exploring nature, Bre's all-in, and her favorite is coming home to couch cuddle. Bre is a social butterfly, is approachable by people and other dogs encountered during walks and outings but heart will always be with her family, will only have eyes for you. She’s good with kids, lother dogs and even okay with cats. All the hard work is done with Bre, she is crate trained, housebroken, gentle on leash and a good listener, responds well to commands. She will be a loyal companion and be happiest being apart of a family that’s home more often than not.  Bre’s ideal home will be shepherd experienced, dog savvy family who understand the breeds need for daily enrichment and exercise.  She is well mannered but still very much a puppy and needs an active family to match her energy and love of enjoying outdoorsy activities, making lots of fun memories.  Having another dog of similar size to run, sniff and play within a fenced backyard a huge bonus.  If you are interested in learning more about Bre or to arrange a meet & greet, please contact RuffDogRescue.org ##1768153##
