Story
My name is Rico and I am a brown dachshund/chihuahua mix. I am a neutered male and I am 9 months old. I am here because I was given up by my owner on 03/01/2024 due to the fact I was chewing on things in the home and they have a baby on the way. They were my family for 6 months. I am used to staying inside during the day and inside during the night. I am mostly potty trained but will need some consistency in my new home to get the rest of the way there. I am a high energy dog and I can live with an owner with no prior pet owning experience. I am still learning to not pull on leash. I would do well with simple obedience training to help us bond and for us to learn how to communicate with each other. I do not have a history of trying to escape the home or yard, but the shelter staff always recommends owners be mindful that I do not accidentally get out a door or escape the yard. I would like a standard height fence to help keep me inside the yard, or lots of walks on leash. I can be good with men, women, and children. I can be good with cats and I can be good with other dogs.All dogs are tested for heartworms and given flea preventatives. They are also tested for intestinal parasites and receive routine dewormings. Dogs are vaccinated against distemper, rabies, and bordetella, spayed/neutered before adoption, and have a microchip. Adoption fees include the initial automated registration of the microchip at the time of adoption.

Story
My name is Biscuit and I am a white & black american bulldog. I am a spayed female and I am 6 years and 4 months old. I am here because I was given up by my owner on 02/03/2024 due to the fact my owner`s landlord would not allow me to live there. They were my family for 1-3 months. I am used to staying inside during the day and inside during the night. I am potty trained. I am a medium energy dog and I will need an owner with some prior pet owning experience. I am used to staying in crates when I am alone or need to be safely contained. I would do well with simple obedience training to help us bond and for us to learn how to communicate with each other. I do not have a history of trying to escape the home or yard, but the shelter staff always recommends owners be mindful that I do not accidentally get out a door or escape the yard. I would like a standard height fence to help keep me inside the yard. I can be nervous around some men but do well with most, and I can be good with women. I have not been around children. I can be good with cats and I can be good with dogs. I get very attached to my owners. I`d like to be someone`s side-kick!All dogs are tested for heartworms and given flea preventatives.
