Story
I got Hazel from a friend’s neighbor when I moved out on my own in 2018. She was about a year old. Her previous owner was rehoming her because he moved from a farm to the city and Hazel just wasn’t adjusting. She can climb any fence you put her in, no matter how tall. When I brought Hazel home, I kenneled her for the first few weeks and she tore through plastic kennels and metal crates every day. She has toy and food aggression and has attacked my other dog several times around food, especially when my son is nearby as his high energy makes Hazel nervous. Hazel has begun peeing all over the house, even on my bed this past and last night when I reached for her collar to put her on the leash, she snapped at me. She has always had a fear response immediately after doing something bad, but has only done this warning one other time, before I had kids. Hazels aggression is unpredictable. She would do best in a home with no dogs, no cats, and no kids or in a home with near constant attention.

Story
Toby is sweet little guy, he is 3 years old, weighs around 48 pounds. He has lived on the farm since he was 8 weeks old, he has been around goats, pigs, chickens, he is not left unsupervised around them or in with them but does fine outside while the animals are in their pens. He is also crate trained. He does bark and has a lot of energy so he will need a home that can provide a place for him to run. Due to a new neighbor that does not care for him and has shown aggression towards my dogs I need to rehome them for their safety. Toby is a great little guy that just wants love, attention and all the sticks he can find.
