Story
We recently had a baby that has a lot of medical issue and do not have the time for Remy. She gets nervous with all the things going on in our home and we want her to find a happy home that’s gonna have the time to love her and cuddle her like she wants. She likes to play and cuddle. Very sweet but like I said our home is too busy and it makes her nervous.

Story
Kota was originally my mom's dog but when she moved she was unable to take him, soy husband and I took over the responsibility. Kota is a very smart and kind dog. He is very protective over his home and does tend to bark quite a bit. We recently had a baby and this caused a shift in kotas behavior, he is extremely territorial over food with our other dog and shows aggressive and stand offish behavior towards our child. I have never done anything like this, and it breaks my heart but I would feel so much better knowing kota is going to a home that has the extra time to spend with him and provide him with the proper training.
