Story
A sweet, quiet girl- who thrives with another dog by her side, and a favorite human. Darling Leena enjoys spending her days sun basking, relaxing, and looking at people, with the most inquisitive, passionate eyes, you could ever imagine. Though, she's typically shy at first, she's able to warm up nicely with another dog showing her that visitors are safe, and a handful of treats. She holds the most expression in her eyes, big curly tail, ears, and even comical at some points with the goofy faces she tends to make. Leena isn't restricted to a specific type of home, in fact, we KNOW she will do well in just about any home! She just needs time, and patience to become used to her new surroundings, people, smells, and sights. It sounds like a load of work, we know, but we promise it's not! Leena has opened up to us, like no other dog has even been able to when they're shy like her, in fact, she tends to be a velcro-dog nowadays, always stuck to one of our sides, but also perfectly content when we crate her. We know Leena's family is out there, and very willing to love her in all the ways she enjoys, and more; if a well-behaved, quiet, low-medium energy, adorable, loving, cuddly pooch is what you're looking for, Leena will make the PERFECT fit. She's even tested amazingly with cats, kittens, kids, dogs, puppies, you name it! My adoption fee is only $210! This fee covers all of my vaccines, microchip, nex/heartguard, heartworm test, AND my spay/neuter! Think I might be the right fit for your home? You can apply for me here https://animalwelfarefriends.org/adopt/application/ OR you can apply in person when you come visit me any day during business hours! You can even adopt me that same day once approved!!

Story
Lynxy-man! Let me tell you a little something about this boy, he's got by-far, the best disposition of a 5 month old puppy, we've EVER seen. Lynxy is cuddly, calm, easy-going, and such a little love bug. Not to mention, he's gotten the hang of his basics, so not only is this baby unique LOOKING (everlastingly adorable!) he has a personality that has made us ALL fall in love, AND he's smart??! What could honestly be better? Lynx could make even the first-time dog owner feel at ease, as long as you don't forget his coconut oil! We call him the little sponge, and just a tiny bit of oil and his skin is like a baby's! All of this goes without saying where he DOES have fur, he's got SPOTS! He truly is such an intriguing little boy, weighing in at about 35 pounds, and every ounce of it, LOVE. Lynx is currently in foster, learning how to be the bestest boy! Apply online and we can schedule a meeting! I can be adopted with a spay/neuter agreement! The refundable fee of $100 is INCLUDED in my $410 adoption fee! This fee covers my spay/neuter surgery (at the Monticello Vet Clinic), my vaccines: Bordetella, DA2PP, Rabies! & my heartworm test + preventatives! The $100 deposit is returned once proof of sterilization is furnished!

Robin girl! The biggest of her litter, and the biggest baby of all! This sweet little girl wants nothing more than to be everyone's buddy, despite being a tiny bit shy at first! Her curiosity gets the best of her, and she always warms up, especially when there's a ball, treats, or pets involved!! She is such a sweetheart too, and absolutely adores cuddles, giving kisses, and wiggling her butt whenever she's happy! Robin has also been quick to pick up on house-breaking, and all of her basics! Making adopting this girl, a SERIOUS piece of cake! Robin LOVES sunbathing, basking, napping on the couch, and all the stuffies in the world!

Miss Lady, girl! As you'd expect, she is quite the little princess pup around here! At around 4 months old, she's a little baby! As content as they come, and even better, as smart, too! Lady knows exactly how to get all that she wants, and MORE! Just by giving us a quick glimpse at her puppy-dog eyes, and that notable "heeler smile" whenever she's content. Lady is a lover of all things, dogs, cats, kids, toys, bones, you name it! We can't get enough of her as she's quite her own little character, and knows exactly what she likes- (all things puppy!) such as tugging, chasing, napping, bone chewing, and especially CUDDLES! Lady is quite the couch cuddler and we believe she will be RIGHT at that perfect size to be the perfect canine companion! Whether she joins you everywhere, or nowhere on those wonderful nights in- Lady definitely won't mind- toss her a bone and she's as delighted as can be! We know she will do wonderful in just about ANY home! To help her excel at being the perfect little pooch, Lady is enjoying the comfort of a foster home, being taught allll the basics! My adoption fee is only $310! This fee covers all of my vaccines, microchip, nex/heartguard, heartworm test, AND my spay/neuter!

Story
Mister. Pookie! A true love bug who has never met a stranger! Pookie-man adores getting all the lovin', and the ball throwin'! Cuddles and playing fetch are his 2 definite activities of choice, though if you threw it out there, I'm sure he'd be down for just about anything with you! As handsome as they come, and as smart! He walks very well on leash, is crate trained, house-broken, AND knows his basic commands! We see the absolute potential in this guy with how hard he strives just to be called "good boy" and he deserves just that! He will give as many kisses as you'll allow, and maybe even go for more! With the genuine love this handsome guy gives out, it'll only be a matter of time before you're in love, if you aren't already! If you're looking for that perfect in-between size for a partner in life- he's your guy! Did I mention he's best pals with all the dogs around, and has done wonderful with kids?! Weighing in at just under 45 pounds, he's that perfect size! My adoption fee is only $210! This fee covers all of my vaccines, microchip, nex/heartguard, heartworm test, AND my spay/neuter!
