Story
Kane is 8 years old and I have had him the whole time. He likes to play ball it’s his favorite thing. He doesn’t like to be alone and prefers to be close to his owners. He likes to play outside but is NOT an outside dog. Fence is preferable as he starts to adjust with his new family. He listens well and is very smart. He is a great protector for your house or even if you live alone. I would not recommend small children as he can play rough and nips at heels when they run as he is a Hearding dog at heart. He is a great dog and I hate to do this but has not adjusted well to our new baby. We have given it 4 months and he has tried to nip when she cries as he thinks he is protecting.

Story
Storm is a great dog. She is very high energy and she will need a family that can dedicate time to her to fetch. She will fetch until she cant walk anymore. Her toy drive is unreal. She is very sweet and loving. She is friendly with everyone, but due to her size and her wanting to put her paw on her human she would need to be careful around small children or elderly. She always wants to touch her human. She would require a large fenced in yard and she would need to sleep inside. If possible I would like her to go to a veteran if possible. I got her on the 30th anniversary of Desert Storm so she is really something special, I just don't have the time to give her the outside time she deserves.

Christian was pulled from a county shelter. He was not doing well in the shelter environment and his days were numbered. He is a sweetheart who needs time to warm up but once he does he is wonderful. He loves to ride in the car!! He needs a 1 owner home. Christian would be a great dog for a long haul truck driver or a retired person and no children in the home. His adoption fee is $200.00 (plus 6% KY sales tax)

Story
Taki has seen and done so much in his short life. He’s a sweet, spunky, quirky boy who loves lap sitting, toys and ice. He rides perfectly in his carrier on car rides and he sleeps all night quietly in his crate. He is housebroken if taken out on a consistent schedule, but will also use a pee pad in an emergency as his foster sister uses them. He spends weekends at the lake and enjoys walkabouts, chewing sticks and is starting to enjoy his golf cart rides. Recently neutered he wore his surgery suit like a champ, but never slowed down. He gets along with other dogs, large and small. He would enjoy an active family, possibly older kids that can play to burn some energy. We know his forever family is out there searching for him! Taki’s adoption fee is $250.00 (plus 6% KY sales tax)
