We don’t know how she is with cats but can cat test her if needed. From Vixen’s foster mom- “She is a wonderful, loving and intelligent pup and I know she’ll bring lots of happiness to her new family.” Please consider opening your heart and home to Vixen. *** Vixen does not do well at adoption days (she gets nervous/scared and shuts down).

Story
Meet Ruby! Ruby is a German Shepherd Mix. She is around 2yr 5m old(April) and weighs 58lbs (Jan2024). Ruby is spayed, current on vaccines, microchipped and HW negative. She is also house trained and kennel trained. * Ruby’s story: We don’t know much about Ruby’s story before now except that she was abandoned with a small bag of food at a dog park in Denham Springs. * Ruby’s personality: Smart, ready to learn, can be easily trained, goofy, playful, and pretty content just doing whatever. Her foster is working with her on leash manners. Considering Ruby was at a dog park, we assume she plays well with other dogs and has not been tested around cats or kids. * Ruby’s likes: Playing fetch, playing with toys and balls, walking on a leash, and is perfectly happy just being in the same room as someone. * Ruby’s dislikes: Touching her while she eats and strangers. She will alert you when someone new comes around. Please consider giving Ruby the life her previous owner(s) didn’t. She needs a loving family willing to give her the good live she deserves.

Meet Luna Courtesy Post She’s a 1 yr 8months old shepherd mix, spayed, current to date on vaccines, HW negative, kennel trained, somewhat house trained. She knows basic commands (sit, down, and she can shake with both paws) She loves to play outside and she loves to play in water too. She’s very hyper and playful and she’s great with other dogs. Not so much cats. She should probably be in a home with older, not younger kids as she doesn’t exactly know her size. Please consider opening your heart and home to Luna.

Story
Meet Bubbles! Bubbles is approximately 6 month old(May) mix, we were told Chihuahua Pomeranian but aren't totally convinced. She is very energetic and wants to cuddle so badly despite how nervous she can be. Unfortunately Bubbles and her siblings came from a bad start because of this she is very wary of new people, fast motion, and loud noises. Bubbles needs a family that is willing to work with her on socialization with the world from places to people and animals. She also needs some work on house breaking although she is showing improvement. She would work best with another dog who is active but close to her size. She does well with cats, dogs (scared of Giants(like Danes)), and warms up pretty quickly to new people. Please consider opening your heart and home to Bubbles.
