Story
Brooke's birthday is November 26th, 2021. We brought her home as we had just moved in together. Now engaged, both working full time, taking on coaching roles, planning a wedding, planning a move, and planning to have kids, we are saddened to realize we are not making the time for Brooke that she deserves. Brooke loves fetch with frisbees and toys, not balls where she has to run too far LOL. She looks forward to her walks. She can last about 2 miles on a run. She is amazing in that she doesn't bark at dogs or chase balls at sporting events. She has never bit us or another human, but loves to say hi. She has a funny personality and enjoys her naps! We don't have any other pets so unsure how she would be with cats. When we bring her around other dogs she loves to play with them, no biting, just lots of chasing and innocent play. She is a super low maintenance eater- we fill her bowl in the AM and she eats it slowly when she chooses. Fully potty trained!

Story
Meet Romeo! He is a lover, as is name suggests, but apparently he hasn't had any work with basic commands or leash walking (he's not fond of the leash!), so we're working on that as we can. He loves to run in the dog park, so daily exercise is a must! He is very loving, and will make someone a wonderful pet, as long as you are willing to give him the time and patience he needs to learn:)

Story
Jerry was an owner surrender because his owner's circumstances changed and he no longer had the place for him. He is a big fella - 122 pounds of love:) Jerry will absolutely make someone a terrific pet, he just has to get to know you first. He does things on his own time, and not a second before he's ready. He's around 4 years old and set in his ways, but to those of us whom he allows in his life, he's a sweetheart! You will certainly need some patience with him, but he'll be so worth it! He's not quite ready for adoption, but will be soon.

Story
Tiva came to us microchipped and her owner didn't claim her, so she's ours now. She is cat and dog-friendly and good with people of all ages. She does know some basic commands. She is an adult female, and just the sweetest gal, but she is also quite strong and will need daily exercise from her next forever owner.

Story
Ozzie was found as a stray and we don't know much about him. We think he's a little younger of a fella, who is shy but sweet and will need manners training, as I'm not sure he's had much in that regard! More to come on him; he isn't quite ready to go yet but will be in about a week!
