Story
Meet Tessa, she has an incredible side eye that is frequently seen by her brothers. Tessa is a tough girl (raised with 3 boys, can’t expect any less). She holds her own with the boys and will happily put them in their place. Her favorite hobby is hunt them down from a distance and pounce the moment she sees an opening. She is the smallest of them but the mightiest. She loves to play with empty water bottles and sticks. Her favorite fruit is papaya and watermelon. She adores rolling in the grass but loves the water. If she could, she would live in the pool. She knows a few commands but she thinks she’s too good for them (sassy) and much rather play on her own. If you’re interested in loving Ms Tessa, please let me know. You won’t regret loving this funny girl. Tessa is 24 lbs and is estimated to be 28-30lbs. Her mom is 30lbs fully grown. Tessa is spayed (YAY) and fully vaccinated.

Story
Meet Dario, the sweetest and most calm pup you’ll ever meet. He is such a gentle boy and loves to make people happy. He knows a few commands and works to make his human happy (but appreciates the treats). He is rather lazy, he enjoys taking naps and getting his belly rubbed. His fur color is the lightest of the pack and his eyes are perfectly outlined in black. He loves to eat strawberries and to play with frisbee rings! He is very curious is always wandering on his own. Marco is about 29lbs and will likely be around 33-35 lbs. He is the perfect medium sized dog, his mama is 30lbs and her full grown brother is 33 lbs.

Story
Meet Mateo, he is the little brother nobody asked for but everyone loves. He loves to run crazy and bother his siblings. But he’s happy to settle down and work on his commands in exchange for some treats and a belly rub. Mateo loves to play fetch and will play with just about anything that makes noise (he will steal your water bottle). Mateo is quite an impressive climber (and jumper) but don’t worry, he won’t sneak away it’s only a hobby. Mateo is looking for his furever home and would love it if it was you. If you’re interested in loving Mateo, please let me know! Mateo is only about 26 lbs, he is estimated to be around 30-32lbs. His mom weighs 30 lbs fully grown and her brother (Mateo’s twin, they look identical) is about 33lbs.
