Story
Freddy is such a good boy. He is very reserved at first. Some time and love he will come around. He has been here too long and needs to get to know the outside world. He came in as a pup. He had a bad cause of Girardi when we finally got him pass that he had spent his puppy life here. Take and introduce him to the world!!

Tajh

Havanese

Male, Adult
Liberty Twp, OH
Size
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Details
Good with kids, Good with dogs, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Tajh has been with us since he was a puppy (he is 10 now). He's had no health problems during that time, and is fully up to date with all vaccinations. He's a great lap dog, and has a very patient demeanor around children & visitors. He regularly sleeps in a crate, and currently has a fenced yard. Tajh occasionally exhibits a marking behavior, despite being neutered as a young pup. Why are we looking for a new home for Tajh? We are recent empty nesters, and we're downsizing to a new home. I recently retired (earlier than anticipated) because my wife was having medical challenges associated with cancer in her foot/leg. While she is on the mend, all of this has led us to have too little quality time to spend with Tajh, and he spends too much time in a crate. He could be a great companion to someone with the time to care for and cuddle with him.

Fenris

German Shepherd Dog Affenpinscher

Male, Puppy
Middletown, OH
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
Good with dogs, Not good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Fenris is an 8 month old sweet and beautiful white German Shepherd. He is house trained and very smart. He knows basic commands and is not yet neutered but is up to date on all vaccinations. He currently lives with 2 cats whom he mostly likes to chase. He also lives with an older doggie sister. He'd be best in a home with tolerant pet siblings since he has plenty of energy to share with everyone, or being an only pet. Fenris needs someone who has experience with working dogs and has patience and ability to give him the training and work he needs. He loves to chase and have the ball thrown. We are rehoming him simply because we cannot give Fenris what he needs. He loves to be outdoors and loves to play. We simply cannot give him the life he deserves. We have toys, a crate, prong collar and food.
