Story
Hi my name is Peanut Butter! I’m 1.5 years old, very playful and just looove people. My tail might be a little messed up but I make up for it in my sweet nature. I can’t get enough of the love and affection you give and will give you all the kisses in return! My foster family found me tied up in a backyard 24/7 rain or shine. They have since taught me to be house trained, how to have manners (I’ve always been nice, I just didn’t know how to manage my excitement). I know sit and in the process of learning lay down, I’ve calmed down some since having a schedule and friends to play with. My foster parents think I would be best suited in a house with one other dog to play with but not too many that I start feeling the need to compete for attention. I play well with others and have learned to mostly ignore cats. My perfect owner would love to take me hiking and play with me outside, I love to run. Asking for $200 fee bc we have paid for her spay and vaccines out of pocket totaling $1,100.

Story
Courtesy Post: Owner Surrender/Rehoming- Roanoke, VA Meet Murphy! He is a 4 year old Australian Shepherd and weighs around 50 lbs. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on shots and on heartworm prevention. Murphy is good with older children and cats. He hasn’t been tested around other dogs. No small children please due to his reactivity! He has a bite history and bit the owner when she tried to pull him away from something. His owner is surrendering him because she is no longer able to care for him. He needs to find a new furever home as soon as possible! If you think you can provide a great home for Murphy, please contact the owner listed below. There is a $150 rehoming fee to assure good folks with good intentions. This fee will be donated to Australian Shepherds Furever for their assistance in placing Murphy. Owner’s Contact Information: Alice Sauers at (910) 619-4922 or alicesauers@gmail.com.

Roanoke, VA

Good with kids, Not good with dogs, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Tonks is a happy lab mix who enjoys playing tug and cuddling up for naps. Her favorite spot is anywhere she can watch out a window for squirrels or passers-by. She is good with toddlers. She needs a home where she can be the only pet, and not have to share her resources with a sibling. Tonks does do well in large groups of dogs in neutral settings like daycare, boarding, and the vet. She has allergies that can be managed with the right dry kibble and occasional apoquel, but outside of that she's healthy. Tonks will pull and jump on adults when she gets excited.

Story
Meet Scoobie, an affectionate adult male Beagle available for adoption. This charming canine companion loves going on walks and eagerly greets new people with his friendly demeanor. Acquired approximately 5 years ago, his estimated age is around 10 years old. Regrettably, due to our busy schedules, we find ourselves unable to provide Scoobie with the attention he deserves. As a result, we are seeking a loving and caring home that can offer him the time, devotion, and companionship he craves. Scoobie's warm and gentle nature, combined with his love for exploration and people, make him an ideal addition to any family seeking a loyal and affectionate companion. If you have the time and dedication to welcome Scoobie into your home, you'll find a faithful friend who will bring endless joy and love into your life. Don't miss the opportunity to give Scoobie the forever home he truly deserves.
