Story
We acquired Doogie from our son who bred AKC Labradors for hunting/family dogs. He has been our farm/pet for many years, and we love him dearly, but as our age has advanced and health declined we aren't able to give him the exercise and attention he needs to thrive. Doogie is a sweetheart who is accustomed to a primarily outdoor lifestyle. While has has lived most of his life with other labs and small dogs on the farm, he was always housed separately. The other dogs have all moved away with our children, and he is alone now. He has never had an issue with our other dogs, but given that he was always housed separately I would want a new prospective family to be aware of this. He has always played and had fun with other big dogs, and mostly ignored or played with smaller dogs. He is 9 years old, but still in great health and energy. His mother lived to nearly 12 and his father is still living and healthy at 12 years old. AKC can be provided if desired. He is not fixed.

Story
Meet Tater! This handsome boy is only 9 months old! He came to us because he had a bad case of skin allergies. He is all healed up and ready to find his forever home! Tater is a blue eyed, blue nose, bully breed. He is gentle with people and kids. He gets a bit rambunctious with other dogs (puppy play) and does like to chase cats. He is young enough that he maybe able to be trained not to chase. He is not good around farm animals at this time as he tried to chase them as well. So for now, a home with no cats and a dog that would tolerate his playfulness would be ideal. He will be neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heart worm tested and micro-chipped before adoption. If you are interested in meeting this goofball please fill out our online adoption application: https://form.jotform.com/83004164874153 - Thanks y'all!

Howdy y'all! Meet 'Nasiri'! This pretty lil' gal is 8 years young! She is looking for a forever home, where she can love and be loved for the rest of her days! Nasiri is already spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. She is SUPER sweet, affectionate and smart! Already crate trained and she loves to run to her outdoor kennel when asked and sits patiently for treats or dinner! She is good with other submissive dogs, she doesn't pay too much attention to cats who do not run away - but she would be best in a home with without cats or a very confident cat who is not afraid of dogs. Nasiri needs a loving family who will give her a chance to prove what a great family member she can be! She deserves to be spoiled! Ready to add a lil' sweetness to your life? Come by and meet this cutie pie! BTW, her name means "The Devoted Helper" imagine that! Online adoption application: https://form.jotform.com/83004164874153

Story
Hi there! My name is Freyja! I am the newest here to the rescue! I have heard that I am a what they call a "Pitsky" I was found at an old abandoned house where I been left, and I was living underneath it. Let me tell you, I was pretty scared and lonely! I didn't know who was my friend so I had to be very careful with anyone who approached. Eventually, I did come out of hiding and greeted a nice human who had come to visit me a few times and she brought me here to the rescue. Even though it was so scary at first, I think I am getting more and more comfortable here each day! I am starting to make new friends and that makes me so happy, I can't help but spin in circles! I am spayed, up to date on vaccinations and micro-chipped. I just want to learn to love and trust again. I would do best in a home where I was the only dog or with very friendly, submissive dogs and no cats. A few notes about me - I do like to chase the kitties and I can be pretty protective over my food bowl when it comes to other dogs who try to take it from me. I've had to fend for myself so it's just something I have to work on. I am currently in training and learning how to be a good girl when I walk on the leash. I just need time. In fact, if you think I would be a good addition to your family, you will get 1 free training session that we can do together! If you would like to meet me, please fill out an application and LeeAnna will set up a meet and greet! https://form.jotform.com/83004164874153 Thanks for stopping by!
