Story
Winston is the best boy. He's a 10 month old standard F1 bernedoodle. He is so happy all the time and just wants to be with you. He's a total ham for affection and treats. Loves his pets and will sleep at your feet. He loves his chew toys and to just hang out outside. He makes a good guard dog. He has had a rough start to life, having to spend 3 weeks in a veterinary hospital, where he had to have his back left leg amputated due to infection. The infection cleared once the leg was removed, and he is back to being his happy self. However, I can no longer care for him due to my schedule. I'm heartbroken because he's such a good boy and steals hearts wherever he goes.

Story
My husband and I adopted Cleo when she was a puppy. She’s an energetic girl but her favorite place to be is cuddled up under the blankets. She’s a great dog for someone who doesn’t have young children. We had a baby a year ago and have tried our hardest to make it work with her. She has never showed signs of aggression toward the baby, however she is terrified of him and has a lot of anxiety around him causing her to use the bathroom in the house. She is trained to use the potty outside but she has recently regressed with the new baby causing her stress. She would love someone who could give her more attention and one on one times. She loves going on walks and playing with squeaky toys. She also loves a good nap or 2. She is such a loving dog for someone who has the time. She can be nervous or jealous around other dogs but she has always done well around cats. If you are looking for a couch potato to relax with or a hiking partner she is your girl for both!

Story
Remi is such a lovable, playful, good dog. I got divorced and had to move into an apartment. He needs a fenced in yard to run. He is a minature Aussie, blue eyes and considered a mural color. He doesn’t get along with dogs. But, everything else is fine. He will come with his toys, bed, treats. He is not great on a leash but getting there. He loves a car ride and to play in a lake edge. I hate getting rehoming him but, it is best for him. He is 3 years old. I live in Evansville, In. If you have other questions please ask. He knows some commands. He rings a hanging bell to go outside to potty.

Story
Hello there, I'm Azora, a spirited 3-year-old Pit Mix with a heart full of love and a zest for life! I'm ready to bring a whole lot of joy and companionship into your life. I've got energy to spare and a playful spirit that's infectious! Whether it's a game of fetch, a run in the park, or some exciting outdoor activities, count me in. I'm ready to be your active partner, joining you on adventures and keeping the good times rolling. My walker described me as a very friendly and sweet girl, and I wear that title proudly! I'm a people-lover through and through, and I can't wait to be your loyal and affectionate companion. My charming smile and expressive ears are just a glimpse of the warmth I'll bring into your life. I'll be honest - I can get a bit reactive around other dogs, so it's important to introduce me to new furry friends with care. My walker noted that I might do better with some space from other dogs. A bit of patience and gradual socialization might be the key to helping me feel more comfortable around my four-legged counterparts. I am heartworm positive but the treatment for that if provided by the shelter once I'm adopted. You just have to make sure you have time to bring me in for two sperate treatments. The adoption staff can go over that with you in more detail. I'm looking for a loving and patient home where my energy and affection will be cherished. While I might need some extra guidance when it comes to interacting with other dogs, I promise to shower you with love and companionship. If you're willing to work with me, I'll be a loyal and devoted friend for life.
