Story
Meet Bruno, the sweetest boy you'll ever meet! This adorable dog is not just a pet, but a cherished member of our family. He's incredibly affectionate, always ready to shower you with love and cuddles. Bruno is well-behaved, house-trained, and great with people of all ages. He enjoys long walks in the park, playing fetch, and lounging by your side. Sadly, due to unforeseen circumstances, we're unable to bring Bruno with us as we move. We're looking for a loving home where Bruno will be cherished and cared for just as much as he is with us. If you're seeking a loyal companion who will brighten your days with endless joy, Bruno is the perfect match for you!

Story
Trayn was purchased as a gift for my husband because he just lost his dog. Unfortunately, my husband is unable to care for the puppy and I must Rehome him immediately as I am currently relocating and already have two other big dogs. Trayn knows his basic commands and is extremely affectionate. He requires someone who has the patience and time to dedicate to him. Trayn is only 6 mo's old born 7/6/23 and is American Bully Kennel Club registered and full breed. He comes from a line of Champions. Trayn is microchipped. I have all is documents. Trayn is very friendly and loves attention. Please feel free to contact me for further information.

Story
We found her in the city. I planned to only foster her. Three years later she's still with us. She is so silly. So happy. She just loves to snuggle all day. She's been great with my kids and the other dogs we've had. She didn't like the cat my daughter got ,but acclimated I know she's of been ok. My daughter just didn't want to put the work in. Ellie is a lover. She is calm in a crate. She gets skittish when we go for car rides. I've tried to get her use to it. She's never enjoyed it. She's just a silly goose. I wish I could bring her to my next home. We just aren't allowed.
