Story
It is with a heavy heart we are looking to immediately rehome our almost 4yo male German Shepherd “Ruger” (DOB 5/15/2019) to a more suitable environment without the temptation of homestead livestock. Ruger is a healthy, active, good-natured, gentle-with-people <4-year-old purebred GSD who has been a wonderful family dog to our 5 young children even from infancy and gets along with other dogs. He even tolerates our outdoor farm cats, although I would take care before trusting him with unfamiliar cats. He is generally well behaved. He has been an exclusively outdoor dog and knows several commands, including sit, down, shake. In the right home he would be a joy to his family. Unfortunately our environment is not the right one for his high prey drive and he has a history of killing small livestock. A recent incident with a goat has made his time with us necessarily ended. He needs a home with lots of outdoor space but WITHOUT the temptation of chickens or goats.

Story
Looking for a new best friend?? Look no further!!Richie is still available for adoption!! 💙Richie is a 10 month old male bull terrier mix, he is full grown and only about 40 pounds.Richie has spent almost his entire life in shelters. We took him in from another shelter who was going to euthanize him because no one was interested in adopting him. He has also beaten parvo as a young pup at his previous shelter. Richie is resilient and keeps his heart open. He loves people of all ages. He struggles at times with other animals because of how long he’s spent in shelters but he is making great progress. Richie is looking for some big hearted person who will give him all the love and snuggles he needs. Richie loves to tug and has the best zoomies. 🐾
