Story
BoBo was born 10/29/23. His mother is mix German Shepherd and Labrador Retriever and his father is a Golden Retriever. BoBo is a happy puppy, he loves to be outside even when is raining. He loves to play and chews on sticks. He is good with kids. He loves to explore the woods. He doesn't wonder outside alone. He is very smart, not fully trained as of yet, he stays in his kennel without issues. He knows to sit and wait to be fed. He is fully potty trained and he is fully vaccinated. He is a great company for someone that loves to be outside working on the garden, or just walking or sitting outside. He likes warm baths inside the bathtub and to play with his towel afterwards.

Nelson is a wonderful boy. He likes to sit outside and sniff the air. He is very calm and sleeps most of the day. He is more of an independent dog and doesn’t really care to socialize with other dogs. He doesn’t really play with toys unless there is a treat inside them.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Please be sure to click on Cassi's photo to learn all about her, and the home we are seeking for her placement.Cassi is a very sweet and sensitive girl who is looking for a laid back family to call her own.  She would love another dog in her forever home that is confident and well behaved, to help show her that new things aren't scary.  She does have some anxiety, and is currently taking medications that are making a huge difference for her.  She would do best living in a home with experienced dog owners who are patient with her, and willing to provide a consistent environment for her to thrive.  She would do well with kitties, but they should a dog savvy cat would be best.  Cassi can be vocal, so she would not do well in high density housing.   Cassi needs humans who are not gone for long hours.  All humans in her forever home must be 12 years of age, or older.  She requires a fenced in yard (physical fencing no invisible fences please).  She is up to date on preventative medications, vaccines and has been spayed and micro chipped too. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.March 3, 2024, 6:03 pm
