Story
Lizzie was adopted from a hoarder situation. She is up to date with all shots and is now healthy. Unfortunately they had to pull all of her teeth. But that doesn’t stop her from eating. She eats everything. She loves pork chop bones. She is fine with other dogs and children as long as they don’t stay too long. She needs to be in a home where she is the only dog and no children so she can get 100% of the cuddles. If you are home most of the time would be even better. She is a sweet pup but she has issues being brought up in a home with 82 other dogs. She is house broken some but needs more training. She will go outside but you need to watch for the signals. She will use a pee pad most times. I hate having to give her up. I’ve had her for 9 months and she still hasn’t accepted my other pup. Lizzie is 8 years old and runs around the back yard like she is 1. She loves riding in a car. She loves sleeping next to you. She needs to be loved.

Story
Reese was adopted in 2018. She did not have the best past when I got her. She is such a sweet dog when it comes to humans but recently has been getting more aggressive towards other animals, especially her sister of 6 years. Reese was given her name from my favorite chocolate bar, Reese peanut butter cups. We always tell everyone her name is Reese cups. She also has the nickname Cups. She is the most loyal dog I have ever adopted. Reese loves to cuddle under the covers and give lots of kisses. She loves stuffed animals to death. They are her favorite toy, even though her favorite part of them is ripping out the stuffing. She is very energetic and loves to play tug-of-war. This is a very hard decision for our family to rehome her but it is going to be the best thing for her. We want her to have the love, hugs and kisses 24/7. Right now we are trying to split the time we have between her and her sister. I am not asking a rehoming fee I just want her to go to a good home.

Story
Binx - 4 1/2 yrs old blue pitbull. She is house trained and potty trained. She is also crate trained. She has been up to date with all of her shots. She does have minor allergies, so she is on Apoquel (allergy medicine for dogs) once a day or every other day. We use Nonantum Veterinary Clinic, they are awesome. Binx is a great dog overall, requires a lot of play time & daily walks (which she does great with walks). She has been very well trained by a licensed trainer. However, she requires a home without children and no other pets. Unfortunately, we cannot keep her due to having a baby years after getting Binx as a puppy. She has shown a little resentment and doesn’t coexist well with our child and we do have another on the way. She hasn’t harmed our child, but there have been signs where I don’t feel comfortable leaving them alone together. Overall, she really is a great dog, just best without children.

Story
I got her right before the quarantine mandate was put into place, as a gift. I was home all the time and she always wanted to be with me. Before I got her the other owners caged her 24/7. She now has severe separation anxiety. I have tried everything in my power to help her but nothing actually works. I leave for work for long hours to provide for myself, as I live alone and pay my own way. I unfortunately cannot give her the time and [lack of space] that she needs. I am at my wits end I grow more and more angry at her and that scares me. I don’t want to end up hurting her or myself. When I’m gone she possesses all of the anxiety traits, soiling, chewing, digging, etc. My landlord is not happy about the damage and that makes me even more angry. I cannot do this anymore and I’m literally BEGGING for someone to help me.

Story
Otis is a 12-going-on-7-year-old sled dog. He was born from an accidental litter in Alaska and has moved with us over those 12 years to five different states. He’s slowing down a little, but still gets big zoomies. He knows when his people are sick or feeling down and stays by our side. He’s a huge part of our family. Sadly, he bit our three year old daughter badly enough that we now need to find him a new home. He had never bitten a person before and had historically been incredibly gentle with her. Our vet says that with age, his eyelid muscles are weakening and he may not be able to see very well, which is likely why he bit her out of surprise when she went for a hug. He will thrive best in a home with no children and no dogs.
