This girl is wonderful! Meet Maple! She is an 8 year old, deaf feist mix about 33 lbs. Maple is totally vetted and spayed and ready for her new home! She is extremely smart, knows hand signals, and loves toys! She is fine with other dogs and great with kids. Maple is very active so we would like to place her in a home that has kids or active adults or a retired family that has a lot of time on their hands. Because Maple is deaf, we require a fenced yard for her safety. Maple's adoption fee is $275. Please apply at www.nepapet.com. She also hates the car and barks the whole time lol.

Story
Rocky is an amazing companion. He is amazing with kids and does great in a family environment. Rocky loves to play! Rocky is 4 years old and is a German/Husky. Rocky has some anxiety when left alone for long periods of time. Rocky is an amazing dog unfortunately we have such a busy schedule with work and school and hate having to leave him alone for long periods of time. Rocky is looking for a home who will love him, play with him and most importantly care for him.
