Story
Cooper is an energetic 7 year old boy with seperation anxiety. He will always give you a wheaten greeting on arrival but when leaving him in the home, he barks and suffers anxious behaviors. Our living arrangements have changed and the family members that are staying with us, cannot adjust to him. He loves multiple walks and chicken. He loves roadtrips and Harley Davidson guys! He loves to walk like a human on his hind legs and attracts many fans and cell phone pics on his walks. Too energetic for an elderly person and too stubborn for small children. He needs an experienced dog owner. He is personality plus. Quite a character!

Story
Brooke is a loving loyal dog . She is a senior but is still active and energetic. She does have a skin issue and requires daily chewable Apoquel . She doesn’t get along with other dogs or cats . But will immediately be your best friend . I have had her for 10 years and it pains me to have to find another home for her . As a single dog owner I gave her the best I could and now I am facing back surgery and a long recovery where I won’t be able to care for her . I want to see her in a loving home with a person or family that can provide her with a better life than I can at the moment. In addition my job has me traveling often and I am forced to board Brooke
