Teddy as we call him since he looks like a little black bear cub, came to us from a local animal control.  His owners just left him behind. Well, RCHS didn't leave him behind.  Teddy is around 1 year old.  He weighs 44lbs and is a black lab mix.  He loves other dogs, tested ok with cats, but will need training to teach about playing too rough, and better with older children since he still jumps.  He knows some basic commands. Teddy is still puppy so he does still mouth when playing.  He just needs some time, training and love.  Please help us find him a home. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.

My family got Zeus when he was just a puppy and he is apart of our loving family. His birthday is September 28; he is 3 years old. We are looking to rehome him to a loving playful family. He loves to cuddle and play with kids. We are willing to pay for his shots to get up-to-date and to get him neutered. I have all his records and he is microchipped.

I want A "FUR"ever" HOME!  Read the FULL Bio to see where I am located and contact info:    2024035 What a stunning boy Maverick is! Maverick came to us as an owner surrender.  Maverick is said to be a 5 year old Labradoodle and weighs 64lbs.  His former owners describe him as a velcro pup who loves to be with you.  They said he knows commands like sit, lay down, shake or paw.  He loves toys. Maverick will shred plush toys but have a great time doing it. He is a gentle giant who loves to play with other dogs, cats, gentle with children and thinks he is a lap dog. Maverick does get into the trash and isn't good with some farm animals like goats (they did say he didn't mind the donkeys though).  They also said he has some allergies to beef, hay and grass but no testing has been done though.   He takes a Zyrtec daily, but we will be seeing how he does without it here. Maverick is not used to being in a kennel and he would really love to find a home. He may be shy at first since he is adjusting to all the new surroundings. Please help us find him a home that will be patient as he adjusts.  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.
