Story
Meet Paddington, the 8-year-old long-haired Chihuahua who believes he is the undisputed ruler of the universe. This tiny tyrant, weighing in at a whopping 11 pounds, is ready to dominate your household with his royal presence. Paddington is a master of first impressions—he’ll snap at you, your friends, the mailman, and even the cat. Don't take it personally; it's just his way of asserting his superiority. Give him a bit of time to adjust, and he'll graciously allow you the honor of being showered with his precious kisses and curling up in your lap. But remember, this privilege is reserved for those who acknowledge his supreme authority. In his kingdom, Paddington expects all subjects—be they human, feline, or canine—to know their place. He has no qualms about putting everyone in line with his sassy attitude. Once you've earned his trust, though, you’ll have a devoted little monarch who will rule your heart with an iron paw. Adopt Paddington, and prepare to be governed by the tiniest, most adorable dictator you'll ever meet. Bow down, minions, for the king has arrived!

Story
Meet Hamlet (aka Fozzie Bear) About Me: Name: Hamlet (aka Fozzie Bear) Age: 6 months old Breed: Husky Poodle mix Weight: 55 lbs and still growing! Training: House and crate trained My Personality: Fozzie is a bubbly, happy, and very social dog. He is an "in your pocket" dog who would love nothing more than to be next to his humans all day. He likely won't do well with long periods of alone time. Fozzie would most likely enjoy being with another dog, as he adores the other dog in the household. He loves to rest his head on your feet or legs or lean against you. Social Skills: Fozzie is great when meeting other dogs on a leash, although he is still learning to walk properly on a leash. Training: He is extremely smart and picks up on new commands at dog training extremely quickly. However, he will chew on items if left out of the crate when left alone. Fozzie Bear is looking for a loving home where he can be close to his humans and possibly have a furry companion to play with. If you're looking for a smart, affectionate, and social dog, Fozzie might be the perfect addition to your family!

Story
Hello everyone! My name is Ocean! I am a female, 4.5 month old, husky.   I am your typical husky in a lot of ways! (If you know, you know!) My foster mom says I am SUPER SMART... and super goofy!!! I know sit & shake so far, plus I sit nicely when you grab my leash and put it on. I also don't pull on the leash much, but still could use some training! I love playing with my foster siblings, splashing in the kiddie pool, chasing the chickens, and chewing on moose antlers! I'll talk at you sometimes too, and you can be certain you'll be getting kisses!    I am working on a few things still-- those being potty training and crate training! I potty outside sometimes but if I'm inside and gotta go, I'll have an accident here and there! My foster mom says I gotta go outside so I've been trying real hard to learn! She says I'm doing better each day! I don't love my crate, but after a day of having all my needs met, I go in quietly and fall asleep quick, straight through the night! I've also been sleeping with my foster parents in bed and have been doing ao good with that too!   And so far, I haven't chewed on anything I'm not supposed to! My foster mom says that's huge for my breed (whatever that means!) but I am plenty happy with antlers & toys. I am intrigued by the cats, but if they hiss, I back away and respect their boundaries.   My previous owner tried her best, but couldn't provide me the life I need. So she did the right thing and surrendered me to this cool rescue!    Due to me being a husky, my furever family will need to have a few things:   breed experience plans for proper stimulation & exercise for my breed a fenced in yard, preferably 6' but not necessary (I haven't tried anything yet but who knows when I'm bigger!) a dog sibling playmate!!! a kiddie pool (literally my favorite thing ever!!)   My breed is going to require dedication, and I am not good for first time dog owners! I need activity and structure please & thank you!!   If you're interested in adopting me, you can apply at www.crossyourpaws.com   KLN 16814 ##2099459##
