Story
1 yd old female named Demi. I was given her from a family friend. Her mother was found abandoned in the middle of winter and my family friend rescued Demi's mother which they then found out she was pregnant. I ended up adopting Demi's brother. After having Demi's brother for awhile the family friend asked if I wanted Demi for a friend for Her brother. Now as time went on It just became too much to handle 2 dogs. I work a lot due to the economy and just don't have time to give them the Love and attention they deserve. They are great Loving dogs never bit anyone, will lick you to death. Demi chases the cats we have but never tried to actually hurt the cats. Great around my 2 6yrd children. Potty/Kennel trained

Story
Tail's is a great 1 yr old lab/pit mix.He is a great dog all around. He is full of energy and need's someone that has the time for him. Unfortunately with the economy I am stuck at work a lot of the time so it is hard for me to do so. He love playing fetch. He is a stronger dog so he will need someone that will be able to handle him. He will lick you to death and has never bitten anyone. He is house and Kennel trained. He has not yet been neutered. Only flaw I would say he has is wanting to jump up because he is so excited. I have used training collar and that did help out a lot

Story
I adopted Buddy in 2020 and he has been an amazing pet. I love him dearly, he is very loyal and he will stick to his owner like glue. Buddy loves other adult or older dogs. He doesn’t like to play but he loves to cuddle and nap. He is house trained. He needs a new home because I now have a new baby and can’t give him the love and attention he needs. I would prefer for him to go to a owner who can give him all of the love and attention he needs.

Story
Some dogs are easy. They love everybody and everything and have no quirks or issues. But doesn’t that make life kind of boring? Brayleigh is anything but boring. This girl was found as a stray roaming the streets of Texas. She had raging skin and ear infections and barely any fur. She’s also blind and deaf. But Bray is a strong and sassy survivor. With help from our vet care team, she had regular medicated baths and her beautiful coat started to grow in. Then she was a trooper and had dual luxating patella surgery. Through it all, Bray has remained true to herself. She’s very complex: She doesn’t like strangers and abhors men, but likes female humans and male dogs. Once she makes friends, she’s very sweet, affectionate, and playful … as long as you don’t try to brush out her mats or clip her nails. She’s gone through a lot in her 5-6 years and she knows what she doesn’t like! Bray loves to play, but is also content to lie down near her person. She isn’t terribly Velcro, but she does like to know where her human is. She likes to play with toys or just carry them around. We’re guessing she maybe didn’t have any her whole life, so now she will sometimes fall asleep with a toy in her mouth. It’s pretty adorable. Bray’s DNA test shows she’s a mix of Australian shepherd, Australian koolie, Australian cattle dog, and shar-pei. She’s a great size at just about 25 pounds. She’s good on a leash, great in a crate, and will potty outside if it’s dry or inside on a pad. She knows the touch command for “come” and is pretty convinced that’s all she needs to know right now. Brayleigh will need a very specific home with just a patient woman or women, preferably someone who has had experience working with “interesting” dogs. She’d probably prefer to be an only dog, but could live with a laid-back male canine sibling. Bray also needs a fenced-in yard for safety and would prefer someone home most of the time, although she is good on her own. She can be left uncrated and will use her potty pad and isn’t the least bit destructive. Brayleigh has allergies so she needs regular shampooing and brushing, daily medication, and weekly injections. Yes, she has many issues and can be difficult and stubborn. But don’t we all? It’s going to take a very special person to adopt this very special girl. But Brayleigh is so lovable, it’s worth the time it takes to get to know her. Plus she gives the biggest and best sloppiest kisses. ##915140##

Tango

Australian Shepherd

Male, 2 yrs 2 mos
Troy, IL
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Good with dogs, Needs special attention, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
The tango is a dance that focuses on flair, love, and playful movement. We think our little Tango puppy was well-named. This Aussie mix is sweet, loving, and snuggly. But he’s also very playful and full of personality and can even be independent at times. He is a very busy, very nosy boy who always likes to know what’s going on. And he looks great while he’s doing it! Tango has so many favorite activities. He loves to explore, play tug of war, and sit on his person’s lap. Tango mostly loves other dogs and wants to run and wrestle with them but he needs some time to warm up to them. Tango is hearing and vision impaired, but it doesn't stop him from dancing through life. He is a smart boy and has already learned “sit” and is working on “come” and “stay.” He’s also doing great with house training and crate training. His ideal home will have a fenced-in yard and another dog buddy. And perhaps a dance floor. ##1475452##

Rogan

Australian Shepherd

Male, 3 yrs 11 mos

Story
Remember the super cute boy from the playground that everyone thought was just so charismatic and even the teachers had to hide smiles when he was being just a tad naughty?  The one with the dreamy eyes that wasn’t a jock or a bookworm, but was perfectly in between?. Please meet Rogan, he is one of those boys and perhaps the James Dean of dogs. Rogan is a handsome young red merle Australian shepherd who is just over a year old. True to his breed, he is picky about sharing his affection. He doesn't love men and would prefer a home with just one special lady. He is a little slow to warm up, but when he feels comfortable, he likes to be near, but not glued to, his person. He is house trained, walks well on a leash, and learns his routine quickly. He has good recall, knows no, off, and sit … most of the time. Who likes to sit when there is so much of the world to see? He does correct easily while occasionally mischievously trying again while melting you with those baby blues.  Are you in love yet? If so, you will get to enjoy running and playing in the yard, long walks, and snuggling. When you need “me time,” he likes his crate and enjoys chewing on safe, quality chews. He is an eager learner providing opportunities to teach him agility, fetch and other activities while improving his house manners and non-toy identification skills. His only requirement is being with you. Rogan is a great communicator and will let you know when it is time to eat and potty as well as providing wake up and delivery notifications. Rogan is believed to have lived outside prior to coming to Speak! and while good with dogs and cats, he may at times need correcting from them, or you, if he gets too exuberant. His ideal home will be an active one with a fenced-in yard. His future family will need herding dog experience and be home a good portion of time to help him polish his loveable rebel edges. He will need to be crated while his family is away. If our handsome Rogan sounds like your James Dean, fill out an application. ##1308256##
