Story
Beaux is a sweet boy and aims to please his family. He is kennel trained and house broken. He has 2 human sisters so is great with kids. He also has a feline brother, so he tolerates cats. He knows basic commands and generally comes when called though he can be a bit hard headed at times. He is a lover and enjoys walks and being around his people although he is happy to just lounge and supervise. He is protective of his people. Our schedules and life have gotten way busier within the last year and he is simply not getting the time and attention he needs and deserves. Please consider opening your home to Beaux!!

Story
Thinking of adding to your family? Miss hearing the pitter patter of little feet? Are you having empty nest syndrome? Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Drake, a male Lab mix born 8/9/10. I was found in a person's yard with my sister Dawn(who has already been adopted). I'm starting to think it was because she was more flashy than I was. I'm hoping someone can see how great of a pup I am. I am up to date on shots, spayed and current on heartworm prevention. Adopting me will not cause weight gain. You won’t have weird craving and I can satisfy your need for a little more activity around the house.

King

American Pit Bull Terrier Labrador Retriever

Male, Young
Baton Rouge, LA
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Good with dogs, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
King is a male Stafordshire Terrier/Labrador mix. He was born about 4/2011, is up to date on shots, neutered, and has been kept on heartworm prevention since he was a few months old. King does well with other dogs except when it comes to sharing his food as he believes food was not meant to be shared. So King can live with another dog, but will just have to be fed seperately. He has no problems with food aggression with humans only with other dogs. King's "owner" boarded him with a vet clinic and never came back to get him so he is now looking for a home that will love him forever and never leave him again.

Story
Swiper is a female Boxer/bull terrrier mix. She was born aroung 05/2011. Swiper was so desperate to be part of a family, she dug her way into someone's yard. Yes, I said in, not out! Lucky for Swiper, she dug her way into a rescue worker's back yard. We tried to find Swiper's owners, but no one claimed her; and we were not surprised. Swiper might be a bit shy at first, but she warms up very quickly when she learns you are friend and not foe. Swiper has tested negative for heartworms, has been brought up to date on shots, is spayed and microchipped. Swiper does well with other dogs, cats, and children. Will you be Swiper's new family that she has been frantically searching for?

Story
Buzz is a male Boxer/Bull Terrier who was born about 9/2011. He is up to date on shots and neutered. Buzz is an alpha male and doesn't do well with another alpha male, but is good with female dogs and submissive males. He is good with kids. Buzz showed up in the parking lot of a salon one day, he thought he needed a haircut, but the salon staff thought he could do without a cut and dry so instead called our rescue to come help with this cute pup. Can you be the home for Buzz where he can get regular baths and blow dry so he doesn't have to wander the streets and find a salon on his own.
