Story
Gina was a cruelty, trauma, neglect case that came from an inner city shelter. Her owner had requested her to be euthanized but the shelter was able to sway them to surrender instead. Even for being a senior, she gets around okay. She is not reactive to dogs on walks and is very gentle on the leash. She is protective over her person though, so there shouldn’t be any other animals in her retirement home. She is perfectly okay being a couch potato and loves to catch up on all of her tv shows! When she wags her tail, she wiggles her whole body!

Rudolph came to us from a small Texas shelter! He likes to go outside and explore but also can chill out while you work from home! He’s done well with children and other dogs! A bit too interested in cats. He even falls asleep while sitting up! He is incredibly sweet and connects well with people!
