Story
Duke is super playful and affectionate. He tends to be hyper and plays roughly sometimes. A fenced in yard is preferred or a large area to roam around. He loves being outside to play, but also loves cuddles and curling up to sleep. He’s protective over children and loves treats. Walks on a leash can be difficult, he pulls and can wiggle out of a harness or collar easily.

Story
This is Jaxson, he’s pure bred Siberian Husky. He will be turning 5 years old on April 1st. He is the best dog I’ve ever had. I have had him since he was 9 weeks old. He’s great with kids and loves to run around and play with my 3 year old daughter. He’s never been around a lot of other dogs but he has gotten along with female dogs and older dogs really well. Cats are an absolute no for him, unfortunately. Super playful and very calm for a husky. Doesn’t bark, and only howls when it’s time to eat.

Story
Weight: 31lbsHi, my name is Beauregard!I have had a tough journey and I am looking for a very active and loving family to help me get back on track! I may have had a rough start, but I am not gonna let that stop me from living my best life! I really love going for walks on leash, and eating anything that taste like bacon! I also really enjoy laying in the sun with a pup cup! I am a little anxious and anything fast or loud scares me so I would also love a quiet home too! I also need to get back on a positive feeding schedule since I chow down so fast, but with time and patience my confidence will build and I will be able to relax more! I also still have some work to do on potty training and would love someone who can show me that a crate is not a punishment, but a safe spot for me to go when I just want some "me" time! I truly am a wonderful boy deep down, but I am going to need a little support brining that part of me back out and I am eager to get started! Like already I can see us down the road going for a walk during the sunset to get ourselves a sweet little treat together!Take me home today and show me what love and support looks like!Cats: unknownDogs: lived with littermatesKids: kids over the age of 10
