Story
Fiona is a 90-pound bundle of love, just waiting to find her forever home! With her gentle giant demeanor, she's sure to capture your heart. Here's a bit more about this wonderful pup: Loves People: Fiona is a true people-person (or should we say, people-dog!). She adores spending time with her human friends and will shower you with affection. House and Crate Trained: Fiona is a well-behaved girl who is both house and crate trained, making her an excellent addition to any home. No Small Children: Due to her size, Fiona would do best in a home without small children. She may forget her size when playing and knock over a little one by mistake. Mastiff/Big Dog Savvy: Fiona needs an experienced owner who understands the unique needs of large breed dogs, especially Mastiffs. She can be a bit forgetful about her size and manners, so gentle reminders and guidance are essential. Dog Selective: Sweet Fiona is dog selective when it comes to getting along with her furry companions. She does not appreciate when other dogs are in her space and not respecting her boundaries. She tends to get along better with males. If you're looking for a loyal and affectionate companion who will lean into your heart, Fiona might be the one for you! Don't miss the opportunity to provide this big-hearted Mastiff mix with a loving forever home. If you're interested in adopting Fiona or have any questions, please fill out an application at www.tailsofhopewi.org. Let's find Fiona the loving family she deserves!

Story
🐾 Meet Penny Layne! 🐾 Penny is a sweet pup on a journey of growth and love. While she's still mastering her crate manners and house training, her progress is evident every day. She's a diligent sleeper in her crate through the night, though she's still learning to enter it gracefully. New experiences can be a tad overwhelming for Penny, but with patience and encouragement, she's bravely stepping out of her comfort zone. She's a social butterfly around kids and other dogs, though she's yet to meet a feline friend. Penny's heart is full of affectionate gestures; she adores cuddles, belly rubs, and giving kisses. Playtime and treats are high on her list of joys, but nothing beats snuggling up in a warm lap. Loud noises can startle her, so she appreciates a calm and reassuring environment. Penny Layne's ideal forever home is one filled with love, patience, and plenty of snuggles. Could you be the one to give her the love and comfort she craves? Apply to adopt at tailsofhopewi.org!🐶💕 *A $100 refundable spay deposit is required in addition to Penny’s adoption fee.

Meet Sweet Pea! Sweet Pea is a beautiful, sweet girl with the kindest eyes that will melt your heart. She loves going on walks and enjoys car rides, especially when they end with a special treat like a pup cup! This lovely lady is ready to find a forever family that she can love and protect. Sweet Pea gets along well with other dogs and kids, making her a great addition to any family. However, she does tend to chase cats, so a home without feline friends would be best. She might be a little nervous at first, but she warms up quickly and soon reveals her loving and affectionate nature. If you're looking for a loyal companion who will fill your life with joy and love, Sweet Pea is the perfect match. To apply to adopt Sweet Pea, visit tailsofhopewi.org. Give Sweet Pea the loving home she deserves!
