Story
We believe Rihanna is a Decker/giant rat terrier which is a hunting breed. She is super friendly and loves meeting new people. She is good around both young and older children. Most of the time she is a couch potato, but she loves going on walks and will play fetch all day. She is usually quiet, but will bark at cats and squirrels. She also communicates well with her people and is very vocal with her cute “barooo”.

Max is about 5 years old and is a wonderful dog. He is very playful & sweet. He loves to cuddle and does this quirky tilt of the head when talking to you. He’s amazing with kids and other dogs. He deserves a family who is going to give him a lot of attention.

Story
We can't believe Rudy is still looking for his forever home. Yes, Rudy does come with a bit of work needed. You know the saying ‘Give an inch, they take a mile'? Well Rudy is that kind of dog. He is looking for guidance and help to be the mature well behaved dog he knows he can be. A home with no little kids would be best. Rudy can be good with other dogs but is kind of a brute. Meet him today!Adoption Information ~·Bulldog mix·3 years old·Altered ·Microchipped ·Yearly vaccinations completed ·Not sure about cats ·Good with dogs, but might be a bit much ·Good with older kids ·A dog experienced owner would be goodAdoption fee $100
