Story
Luna is very lovable and spoiled. She likes to be covered up at night time when I it’s bed time. I got her at 7 months old, she is now 4 years old. We recently moved and do not have a fenced in yard so she can’t run freely like she is used to.

Story
Murat is truly the sweetest big guy you will ever meet. We rescued him 2.5 years ago and he has been such an easy dog to care for. He's naturally loyal and listens well off-leash, and always turns heads when out and about. He is great with dogs, but if there are any kids around, he will always choose to play with them instead. He also absolutely loves to play in water, especially during the summer! He is looking for a home where he can collect sticks and belly rubs, but also have a quiet spot to take naps. He will be a great addition to any family, big or small!

Remi is a 3 year old ball of energy born 1/21/21. She loves her humans but has become not so fond of other dogs. She would do great alone in a home with no other animals. She is crate trained and potty trained. She would be a great addition to any home where she is the only pet. She is up to date on all of her vaccines. She will come with her crate and a bag of food.

Story
Khan is a very handsome young pit bull looking for an active/structured house. Having been abandoned at the shelter, we don't know any specifics about his background. We do know that he LOVES humans and craves attention! Khan is extremely energetic and very strong. When we first met him he had absolutely no manners. He can get overstimulated and will jump or nip to get your attention. He has completed Intro-to-Training class twice and walks with a Gentle Leader and a chest harness. He will benefit greatly from continued consistency with his training and commands. He is very smart, and he shows that he can absolutely be a Good Dog with consistent handling (and the right yummy incentives). After more than a year here at the shelter, he is much calmer and better able to process his surroundings. His loves are car rides, walks, swimming, and PEOPLE! At 65-70 lbs his strength can be a challenge. His jump has a 5-6 foot clearance from standing! Khan has not shown any signs of aggression toward other dogs but he does forget his manners in an effort to play with them. We have not specifically cat-tested Khan, but he has been in our lobby where he can see cats and he is very interested in them. We suspect that he would chase anything smaller than himself.

Story
Miles was originally rescued in Tennessee as a puppy due to a hoarding situation. He was adopted by me and my son in August 2023. Unfortunately, due to job loss I am being forced to sell my home and move in with family. I am unable to take this boy with us and it is heartbreaking. Miles needs to be in a home with a yard that he can run. He spends a lot of time outside and prefers to be outdoors whenever possible. He is wonderful with children but I would recommend the child be at least 5 and experienced with dogs. Miles is extremely loving and gets very excited (we have been working on his jumping). He is crate trained, and fully house broken. He loves to chew and has many toys that he loves to play with! He is 1 year old, UTD on all vaccines until August 2024. All of his items including his crate will be provided. We are heartbroken to part with our boy but we want him to have the best home.
