Story
I've had AJ since he was 2 years old. He's a good dog but not good with children, and I also can't afford him anymore. I'm going to be getting married soon, and my soon-to-be wife and I want to have children. We can't keep AJ anymore due to those things. PLEASE someone adopt him. Otherwise, I'm going to have to put him down.

Story
Tyr is a fantastic dog, lots of energy and love. He has been playing with my brothers dog and my cat his entire life, and he does well with my 11 year old son. Due to his size I haven't gotten him fixed yet, the vet said to wait until he was older. He is up to date on his shots though. He behaves well, and mostly listens. He is crate trained, he knows it as his "room". I.E., "go to your room." He is potty trained and hasn't had an accident in months. He isn't great on a leash since we primarily play in my fenced in back yard, we've been working on it. He is roughly 8 months old. He is an incredibly sweet and kind puppy. I took a promotion at work and will be traveling every other week to different offices all over the U.S. and Canada. It's just me and and my son when I have my parenting time with him, so when I travel Tyr would be home alone for multiple days at a time, sometimes an entire week. I have a harness, leash, crate, toys, treats and food to go with him.

Story
Sadie is a 6-year-old, 85-pound improbable mix of German Shepherd and Shar Pei. This is a confirmed and not speculative breed mix. Go figure. Sadie is not the most attractive dog we have. I get this. This is the dog equivalent of what happens when you cross a supermodel and a rock star. Genetics when only one parent is leggy and gorgeous is sometimes less kind to the offspring and you end up with awkwardness. That's where we are here - tiny head with strange ears on a giant body with a little tail. When she runs, she kind of resembles a demented velociraptor and she is all awkward angles. I am sure you are reading this and are going to tell me how pretty she is and while I appreciate that and love her for what she is, this dog next to a golden retriever is going to get zero attention. It is an absolute fact that people are shallow and it's why weather forecasters on your news shows are always wearing skin-tight dresses and are not 55-year-old, size 18 women who are doing the actual forecasting. Sadie is a very good girl and she deserves a home. Sadie has done well in a home with other dogs, but she prefers they be mellow and not jump on her. She is not good with cats and she would eat them. Sadie is impeccably well-trained and she knows a lot of commands. She is housebroken and well-mannered and she is a charming dog one-on-one. She is also a powerful athlete that has more in common with her German Shepherd side of things and she loves her walks. She needs 20 minutes of hard running in a back yard daily and then she's happy. She is full of kisses and does not know a stranger as she loves all people. Given how strong this dog is, kids over 12 would be fine. This is a fantastic dog for the right home.
