Story
Phoenix was born in September of 2012 and weighs about 65 pounds. He is a playful, loving boy with those he knows well. When he loves you he wants to be with you as much as possible. He can be protective of his human friends. When he sees one of his human friends coming he is so excited his tail doesn't stop wagging. He loves his baths and will run and jump in the washtub begging for a bath whenever given the opportunity. He walks well on a leash and rides great in the car. He gets along with a lot of dogs (as long as they don't challenge him) and enjoys running and playing with them. Phoenix is a real prince who came as a pauper. He was in terrible condition upon arrival, nearly starved with severe mange and infected skin. But with loving attention (of course, there was medicine in there, too!) he blossomed into the beautiful boy he is today. He suffered so much, please give him the opportunity to be your Prince Charming. He deserves to have a happy ever after ending for his story. ##47418##

Story
Lady Gaga was born October 18, 2016. She weighs about 55 pounds and is completely house-trained. She gets along great with other dogs of all sizes and is fine with cats. This princess likes the water and will play in her doggie pool whenever she gets the opportunity. She loves to play fetch and happily chases her ball to bring it back to you for another throw. She is easy to bathe and is a shiny black beauty. The markings on her face have awesome symmetry and paint her soooo pretty! Even her black tongue matches. Her mom is a Golden Retriever/Chow Chow so she may have inherited it from her, even though mom didn't have a black tongue. Maybe dad was a Shar Pei? However she got her looks, she is a beauty! Lady Gaga is a real cuddle pup! As soon as she knows she can trust you she will be your loyal best buddy. She isn't instantly friendly but gets there quickly. In the beginning she will bark at strangers and seek comfort from her foster mom, but, with a little patience and understanding she becomes an affecionate, loyal companion.  She walks well on a leash and rides great in the car. Lady Gaga is a real princess and deserves a castle to call her own. ##118812##
