Story
Mila is about to turn 10 in April. I adopted her at 6 weeks old from a shelter. She is a very sweet and independent girl. Loves to play for a little while, then lay off on a blanket and nap most of the day. Most baby sitters say the same thing, they almost forget that she is there because she really enjoys napping under a bed or somewhere dark. She is not violent with other dogs, just prefers to have her own space and ignore them. With friends dogs, after a few hangouts, she starts to play with them. Rehoming Mila is the hardest thing I have ever had to do but she isn't receiving the love and attention that she deserves. She is currently not up to date on shots but I will be happy to get her up to date before adoption. I will be happy to answer any and all questions.

Story
Muffy has been raised around other dogs and he does ok with one other dog. We have a Pomeranian and they are best friends but when my kids bring their dogs over he doesn’t get along with them. He just tries to protect the Pomeranian. He usually hides from younger children as my grandsons are a bit wild. But he can fall usually head over heels in love with his owner (usually females).

Story
Hi, my name is Remington. I am a collie mix. I have been neutered. I am fully up to date on vaccines as well. I am looking for a family who will take care of me and get me where I need to be. I enjoy cuddles and playing tug of war. I do have one request before you consider adopting me. I do not get along with male dogs but I get along great with female dogs. Please do not adopt me with a male dog in the house. Other than that I am an amazing dog with lots of love and affection. Please give me a chance.

Story
Bruno is a big gentle giant! Very chill, gets excited when you walk in the door and nudges your hand for pets. Still learning how to play. Very quiet and loves to lounge around on the hardwood floor or on the porch. Gets along well with all animals. Bruno does have an old ACL tear that has healed. He does have arthritis and also some hip dysplasia. He is on pain meds daily and a joint supplement. This will be lifelong that a potential family will need to take into consideration.
