Story
We believe Mabel is about 3 years old, we adopted her from a lady I worked with, she was found wondering the streets, not microchipped and no one claimed her. My family and I have had her just shy of 2 years, she loves to be outside, but also loves to cuddle on the couch. She still has a lot of puppy in her, she will chew on her toys, she loves to take your socks and burry them in the backyard. She loves people, and delivery drivers, she has even been known to jump in their truck. She is good with older children, as we have a 11 and 13 year old, she loves to play ball with my son. However, we are having a newborn in just a few weeks, and we fear she may be a little rough with a little one, that is why we are looking to rehome her. She is very loving, and loves to protect, she is a hunting dog, mostly squirrels and birds. We are not hunters, but with the right training I am sure she would make a great hunting dog, it anything else she is a great protector.

Story
Apollo joined our family about two years ago when a friend of mine could no longer care for him. In that time I have house trained him and taught him a few basic tricks. Apollo will be 4 in September. Apollo is a big sweet baby and a big protector since he is a guardian breed. He is very good with my other dog and my cat. He has shown signs of aggression towards other dogs though. He also has shown aggression towards kids that are not my kids or his previous owners kids. He has also shown aggression towards random other people and I cannot figure out his triggers. He is mouthy and barks quite a bit since he's on guard most the time. He's got a bit of food aggression. He's very smart, a great security dog, and a big sweet boy. He loves nothing more than to cuddle up with me or to go on walks. I recently went through a divorce and I don't have the time he needs anymote and he is spending too much time in his crate. He would make a great pet for someone without kids and maybe a farm.
