Story
Lucy is an adorable Border Collie mix with a great smile! She loves going on long walks and even sits politely when you leash her to go outside. Lucy enjoys traveling and is a great running partner. She loves snuggles and belly rubs. Lucy does well with sleeping on her own, with free access to her crate. She is a good listener, and overall well-behaved other than her jealousy/aggression issues. She is an anxious dog and we have given her calming medications in the past. Lucy was originally owned by a relative that adopted her from a shelter. Our relative could no longer care for her because of how active Lucy is. Our relative had a chihuahua and three other cats that Lucy did well with. From what we have seen in the past, Lucy does well with kids. We have seen that she must warm up to younger men.

Dougie is 11 months old, he was a gift to my grandson, a teen student persuing his education. We are looking for help rehoming him due to the surgery cost.

Story
Shadow is a playful and sweet boy who loves to run but needs a bit of discipline and training. We are looking to find him a healthy, happy, and an energetic parent. A family that will treat him like a part of their own family and keep him indoors and not chained outside. He loves to eat and hasn’t had too much human or dog interaction but will learn with a good parent. Only reason we are trying to place him in a new home is because we just had a baby and our home is small so it’s really difficult to give him time and proper space also we feel as if we can’t give him what he deserves. We love Shadow and he is a joy to have but ultimately want what’s best for him.

(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Good with kids, Good with dogs, Not good with cats, Needs special attention, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
This is Mia! She is a 9 year old lab/terrier mix with a heart of gold. Miagreates joy in life is derived from being around people. She embodies the quintessential velcro-dogstereotype; she will follow her owner everywhere so she never misses a thing. She loves cuddles, belly rubs, sleeping in the bed. Mia also feeds off of being physically active. Shes just as happy playing fetch until your arm gets tired, or going on a walk until youre exhausted. Its never Mia who quits, its always the human! When its time to settle down, shes just as happy curling up and catching some zzzs. Mias greatest challenge is her separation anxiety. She needs a strong leader who will be with her constantly and provide guidance. When the humans are away, she needs to be around another dog, as her greatest fear is being completely alone. Mia would love nothing more than a constant companion to love and adore. If you are interested in learning more we would be happy to answer all questions.

Size
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less

Story
Honey is a super loyal and loving dog. She is extremely defensive of her home. She will bark when someone she doesn't know pulls up and she does not like cats. She is up on all her shots as well as Nexguard. She will let you know when she has to go outside and loves play with her bone, chase her bone when thrown, and otherwise happily lounge on her bed. She would absolutely love to run around a fenced in yard or be taken for walks. Honey is an absolutely wonderful dog that needs a great home. Sadly, I am on the road too much to be there for her enough.
