Story
Hi, my name is Taco and I’m a true sweetheart who adores cuddles, belly rubs, and playtime in equal measure. I’m a smart cookie who needs some extra attention when it comes to training. I’m eager to learn more and would love to join a family who would be willing to teach me new tricks and skills.

Story
Stormy was surrendered to my wife and I by a friend's older son. After months of asking him, because she was not being treated or fed properly he finally gave her to us. She was very emaciated when we got her, we have now had her for about 7 days and she is looking less emaciated in the short time we've had her. My wife and I are not ready for a pet now, but we know how to love and take care of one. My wife had cats some years ago and I grew up with dogs. My parents bread pekingese's for years when we were children. I also had dogs for years when my children were young. Stormy is about 11 months old and loving to other dogs, people and especially children. She is energetic and she wags her tail very vigorously whens happy, we even considered naming her wiggles, because of her happy tail wagging. She's a sweetie. Even though she loves to eat she can be fed by hand and you can dig in her bowl while she eats with no problem. She is house trained. She is very intelligent.

Story
Luna is a sweet dog 7 year old chihuahua/yorkie mix (she clearly looks more like a chihuahua), that would do well with a owner(s) that had time to give her love her and spend time with her. My daughter left for college we unfortunately can’t spend the time with her that she deserves. We are hoping a loving family or person will be able to adopt her and love her.

Story
Hello! I am working to rehome my 2yo female Rottie. There is no fee. I’m more so concerned about her going to a home that is familiar with the breed (esp females as she isn’t warm but she can be sweet) and has room for her to run. We’ve spent thousands in training. She is AKC registered and eager to please. She just has a little too much drive as a true working dog given our schedule. Peppa is super attentive and smart. She’s also protective and loving. Her breeder (who can’t take her back bc he’s in Cali) and her trainer can be available for a conversation. A solid dog for the right person.

Story
Hi! My name is Butters and I’m a 5 month old ShiChi! I am looking for a home that has patience as I can be a little shy at first around people and other dogs but my curiosity and a good treat helps me to warm up! All of my shots have been paid for and I’ve already completed my first round so only two more to go! I’m looking for a home that ideally has puppy experience and has time to play even though for the most part I’m pretty mellow! I can’t wait to meet my new fur parents!
