Story
Born 08/06/2020. Luna is so sweet, she loves belly rubs and kisses. She does have anxiety around little dogs because she was attacked by a small dog when she was younger. Unknown how she would do with another large dog but seems unphased by our neighbors dogs when they are outside. She has let other kids/adults come up and pet her without issues, but she does jump and get the zoomies so keep that in mind she may jump or run at them. Unfortunately rehoming due to my health issues from developing long covid and heart issues. She was potty trained when she was inside, but she has been outside for about a year now in a fenced in yard with shelter and a stock tank to swim in. She loves to be outside and run and dig. She is up to date on Rabies vaccine and the rest of her vaccines just expired at the end of April.

Story
Meet Bruno and Justice, these 2 were abandoned outside of our facility back in March and were never claimed. Bruno and Justice are both 4 years old and absolutely love each other. We know it is not easy to adopt out 2 dogs together, so it is best that we adopt them out separately so they do not have to wait here any longer than necessary. Bruno is the solid black Pitbull mix, he was very nervous when we first caught him but he has started to come out of his shell the more we work with him. Bruno will be protective of your home so please keep that inconsideration if thinking about adopting him. Bruno would need a meet and greet with any dogs in the home, he can not be in a home with cats, and do to his nervousness, we suggest no home with kids under the age of 16. Once Bruno gets to know you, he shows so much affection, he loves to be with his person, loves belly rubs and all the love .Justice will also need to be in a home with no cats, she also requires a meet and greet with any dogs in the home. Justice loves to play with her toys, she could play ball majority of the day. She and Bruno both love going on walks. Justice is also a love bug when it comes to sitting down and just have you love on her.

Story
Hello, I'm Frosty! I'm a friendly, mellow, and sweet adult dog who loves to spend my days lounging around and enjoying the company of my human friends. I'm a gentle soul, always ready to offer a comforting presence and a wagging tail. I do best as the only dog in the house, but I get along great with older kids. I can't wait to have a family to call my own, to share in life's quiet moments and create memories together. Adopting me would mean gaining a loyal, loving companion who will always be by your side.
