Story
Can not walk on back legs.Apple was surrendered to the shelter to be euthanized. She had lost the use of her back legs and they couldn’t afford to get her vetted. The shelter fell love with her because she is so full of life and love. We rescued her and had in depth vet examination to find out if her back legs could be fixed. Unfortunately they said surgery would be a 50/50 success rate and with her age didn’t recommend it. They said otherwise she’s a happy healthy dog. She has a wheelchair but prefers to scoot around. She goes to the door when she needs to go outside. She is a very sweet senior who deserves someone who will love her regardless of her handicap. She is fully vetted. June 11, 2024, 7:42 pm

Story
Tate stole my heart the moment I rescued him. He stole many of the shelter workers heart because literally loves everyone he meets. He walks fantastic on lead, has great recall, learns new tricks quickly. He is a pleaser and wants to please me. If he gets scolded for puppy behavior such as chewing his bed or counter surfing for some hamburger buns, he immediately knows he has disappointed me and shows sorrow. He is house and crate trained and very calm. He is not yet 2 years old so he still likes to chew but other than that he’s perfect. He does great with other dogs but does best with bigger dogs that are alpha, he listens well. He is interested in playing with the cats but I have not full on trusted him with my cats. He gets a bit rambunctious with them. He is great with kids because he loves all humans. The reason why he wasn’t adopted at the shelter is because he is heartworm positive. He is currently undergoing treatment for that. Otherwise he is a healthy beautiful sweet pup who is going make someone a fantastic and faithful pet.

Story
Willow is an approximately 2 yo hound mix. She is completely house trained and knows basic commands of sit, stay, lie down, shake and come. She is excellent at come and we walk her on our large property off leash. She is trained to an e-collar and responds to just a beep. She is crate trained but doesn’t need to be in a crate when left alone. She loves people and likes to curl up next to us to sleep. We love her but she has taken to going after our oldest dog. We have worked with a trainer but the behavior is getting worse, and now the older dog is terrified of her. She gets along with our 3 other dogs fine and loves to run and wrestle with the 2 younger ones. She does not like being disturbed when she is resting and will growl if the other dogs get too close. I think she could do okay with another dog in a house as long as they like to play rough but will respect her space when she rests. She could also do well as an only dog and would probably thrive getting ALL the attention.
