Story
Remy will be 2 years old on March 3rd, 2024. He has plenty of energy and enjoys a game of fetch, long walks, and playing in water and snow. He also likes to know where everyone is and what they're up to in the house (not a fan of closed doors). He's fully vaccinated until May, and just received 6 month heart worm preventative injection this week. He can follow basic commands like "sit" and can hold a brief "stay". He's leash trained with a prong collar but doesn't need much correction and rarely pulls. He is frequently socialized with other dogs during day care, but it's been about a year since he had a feline friend at home, so no longer sure how he will react with cats. He does pretty well with our toddler, and enjoys the company of older kids. He's never shown aggression towards humans or animals, though will growl/bark if anyone pases the house. He can be protective of his treats/bones. He's currently about 120lbs and eats ad lib throughout the day.

Story
I got nova from a local pet store when she was a puppy. She loves long walks, naps, and is the best cuddler. She did have 3 puppies before she was spayed. She does not get along with her daughter anymore and they have been getting aggressive towards each other. She would do best in a single dog home. She is a great guard dog and loves to meet new people. She does well when meeting new dogs just not sharing a home with others for too long. She is sweet, relaxed, and has a strong nose so be prepared to go on long walks. She does well when getting baths, does not need groomed, and her nails don’t grow super fast but she doesn’t mind you trimming them. She only barks when she’s being protective. She is used to being in a crate when I leave for a few hours but does fine outside of it. She has pretty short fur but she loves to be brushed. Her favorite treats are carrots and peanut butter. She loves a good car ride with the windows down.

Story
This is buckshot, he is my boy. Unfortunately due to some finance issues we’ve been having I can no longer pay his monthly payment and I’m only asking for half of what I owe. We stumbled upon a Petsmart a year and a half ago and there he was. He was the only dachshund in the store, and he was so cute his little twinkle, and his right eye gets your heart going. Buckshot is full of energy and loves kids. He loves mine like they’re his own. It breaks my heart to have to post him, but I really need somebody to take care of him and watch him grow old old. Cherish him. Buckshot is not fixed. He can have babies and I would love for somebody to have at least one litter to give him the dad like qualities he has. He is so sweet loves to cuddle he is so great. He’s such a good boy. He knows commands like sit shake. Lay down. He loves birds and naps!
