Story
Fatz has been family since he was a puppy in 2010. He was given to me from a childhood friend. He is intelligent, an explorer, resilient, loves affection and walks, watching television, and low maintenance. He only needs to be walked once in the morning and once in the evening. Fatz is 13 years old and he needs someone who can love him. He loves to sunbathe and dog yoga.

Story
It is with great sadness that I have decided to rehome my pet Kane. I can't even believe I'm bringing myself to write this message. This is the only home he has ever known and it's not going to be easy either for us or him. I need a loving/caring home for him; a family that will love and cherish him as much as we do. I'm pleading for a family that will not hurt him; not cause him to fight, and who will not mistreat him. I decided not to take him to a shelter because I don't know who will adopt him and it scares me that he will not survive it. I've had this boy for over four years - he grew up with my grandson. They are the same age; play pals, and best friends; he's our boy!!! Due to work constraints and back issues, I can't take care of Kane, particularly since I am unable to give him the exciting and active life he so deserves and enjoys. It hurts to keep him cooped up in the house all day. He needs to be physically active!!! More pictures are available.

Story
Kobe was actually a birthday gift from a cousin. She purchased Kobe from a breeder in my area. Kobe had been sold and returned once before my cousin purchased him for me. Kobe will be 3 years old this year but is still on the smaller size for his age and breeds. Kobe is very friendly and energetic. He loves to play constantly and loves every person he comes into contact with. I would love for Kobe to have an enclosed backyard to run around in. I also think Kobe would do well in a home where there are other dogs. When he's not playing. Kobe is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. He loves hugs and kisses, so if you are not careful, he will plant one on your mouthūüėÖ.

Story
Kru is a very smart and loving dog. Although large in nature, he is a mild manner pet who loves his tummy rubbed, treats, and walks. He has been a house dog with access to an average size back yard. He is smart and knows a few commands such as sit, lay, and give me paw. I would love to see Kru is a loving environment with an owner who has time to take him on regular walks and gives him plenty of attention. I believe he would do well with another dog to keep him company. He loves to meet new people and is sweet and friendly. Kru's adoption fee is $100.

Story
I recently had to return to work outside of the home and moved into the city from a rural area , and I no longer have the time to provide the type of care and love that my pets Suri and Queen need- I would love for both dogs to be rehomed together ( they are aunt and niece ) . They are loving dogs they enjoy a lot of human interaction , hence why I am looking to rehome them now that I can no longer provide them with the attention the need .
