9 month old super sweet, energetic mix. I rescued her a few months ago but am trying to leave a bad situation and can’t take her along. She’s used to living in a house with other dogs and small kids and does great with both. Eager to please and learn.

Story
Tucker is about 4 years old. He has been with us for 9 months He is great with kids. He has been around our son since he was 6 months old. He is overall a very good dog. He is house trained, he dosent jump on people has been trained to place sit. He is much more behaved than 85% of the dogs I have been around. He has had separation anxiety issues so we have been forced to crate him all day. So he is in a crate 10 to 11 hours a day since December. We feel it's not good for him. So we are looking for a new home that will have more time for him. He is medicated with Prozac to help. Ideal would be someone who works from home or has other dogs.

Story
Suki is a sweet girl who works hard for your love and attention. She can get anxious at times, fireworks, storms and car rides are not her favorite things. She and her brother do everything together. She does have a high prey drive and has caught a few squirrels. Both dogs would require a fenced in yard. She like nothing more than to Netflix & chill with you, enjoy cuddles and snacks. She has endless love to give! 💕

Story
Birdie and his sister are rescues. They are border collie and lab mixes. They want nothing more than to chase a squirrel and then rest at your feet for the rest of the day. Small children make them nervous, so I don’t recommend a household with a child smaller than the dogs. Preteens and older would be great. They are sweet and lovable. They got very use to us being home over the pandemic and now that no one is home it is hard on them. Birdie would love to snuggle with you!

Story
Come and meet me today!!! Teddy is a 2 1/2 year old Boxer and Lab mix, that very much still has the energy of a puppy but that has already been trained. Teddy is a most loyal companion who craves love and attention and also has a lot to give. He loves to be outdoors in all weather, whether that be running around outside, bird watching, or just taking a nice sun bath preferably in a fenced-in yard. He is very much a cuddler, wherever you are is where he wants to be. He loves to spend time with other pets but prefers to be on his own at home. He does not have experience with children. Slow proper introductions are always best to set me up for success in the new home. Teddy is crate and house trained pretty well. He is up to date on all appropriate core vaccines including lepto, rabies, dewormed, fecal tested negative, microchipped, neutered, and on monthly heartworm flea/tick prevention. Please do not hesitate to add this fun guy to your life, I promise you will not regret it!

Story
Kc is a very active and loving dog. He is still young only about a year and a half, so he is very hyper. But he just wants love and attention. He licks a lot and thinks he is a lap dog even though he’s 75 lbs. He does need a lot of attention. He also needs some training. My husband and I got him from my grandmother then found out we are having our 3rd child and just have a lot on our plate currently and he needs more attention. Someone who can be home with him a lot is ready to play!
