Story
Misha was a shelter dog at the MD SPCA. She turns 4 years this November. She is an incredibly sweet and affectionate dog. She loves going for walks and is very food/treat motivated. Otherwise she loves taking long naps and finding weird places to lay around. She has a strong prey drive towards small animals. She is incredibly strong and fast so I would recommend walking tools like easy-walk or gentle leader. She sheds a lot and needs proper and regular grooming to maintain. She is also an escape artist and will try to escape given the opportunity. Loves water and swimming. She is hovering around 62lbs and eats about 3 Cups of kibble/day. Looking for a home that has a yard or other animals for her to socialize with. Needs a fair amount of activity.

Story
Magnum, also known as Maggy or Mags, is a rescue who has been with my family for almost six years. He is probably about seven years old. We are heartbroken to rehome him, but are moving out of the country for work and cannot take him with us because the destination country has a ridiculous and cruel breed ban. He is a very friendly and pretty well-trained (he knows "no," "sit," "come," "stay," "up," "down" and various other words and phrases). He is completely housebroken. He has never threatened a human or, frankly, even met one he didn't like. He is often a star at barbecues and is great with kids (we have a toddler who he adores). He likes to play with other dogs but can be a bit rough, so it's better if they are his size. He is pretty dumb, but is exceptionally charming. He loves swimming and playing tug of war and is equally happy going for hikes and snuggling on the couch.
