Story
Meet Tater Tot! Tater tot is a sweet, smart, sassy little lady who’s looking for a family that will continue to guide her into becoming the best version of herself. Her previous home lacked boundaries, so she became a little naughty thing! She has done really well learning from the adult dogs in her foster home, and looks to them for direction. Her new family will need to be prepared to uphold boundaries - not allowing her on the future being the main one until she “earns” her privileges and understands the dynamics of her new family. Tater is a dog who will take a mile if you give her an inch, so we can not stress enough that she will need a home with lots of rules and regulations at first. Tater has been spayed, and had her nares widened. She has UTD on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm tested. She will come with 6m of oral heartworm prevention, and 30 days of pet insurance.

Story
Lizzie found herself at a local animal shelter after being picked up stray. Her owners never reclaimed her, so she became a C4C girlie. SInce transitioning into foster, we have learned she loves other dogs, and she really loves her humans. Her foster mom says she's a velcro dog - she loves to be wherever her people are. She appears house trained, and is learning that crate time isn't awful either. Lizzie will be spayed, UTD on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm tested prior to adoption. She will have 6 months of heartworm prevention, and 30 days of pet insurance for her new family.

Story
Meet Lucy! This sweet girl is ready for a mellow home all her own. Her foster mom says she prefers to have her own space, and prefers to have her humans to herself when she's getting all the lovins'. She currently lives with other dogs and co exists with them fine as long as they respect her boundaries and don't nag her to play. Lucy is crate/house trained, and knows sit, down, and give paw. Lucy has some bulldog typical allergies that will require weekly baths and allergy injections (Cytopoint) every 6-8 weeks. She recently had a full exam, bloodwork, all vaccines updated, and a heartworm test done. She will come with 6 months of heartworm prevention and 30 days of pet insurance for her new owner.

Story
Introducing Kane! Kane is an almost 2 year old handsome German Shepherd and a big boy at 100 pounds. He is potty trained, crate trained, and neutered. Kane knows basic commands and is treat motivated. He pulls a bit on the leash but is eager to be trained in the short sessions we have done. He loves being next to his humans and keeps track of us in the house like a typical velcro shepherd. You will never have to do anything alone again with this guy! He also loves to play ball in the backyard and to flop over for belly rubs. He was introduced to other dogs at the shelter and tried to play but they were a bit intimidated by his size! In typical shepherd form, Kane can be loud when meeting new people. Hes respectful of firm corrections, and settles down with ease. He's currently in foster with dogs from 12lbs up - we think he would be best suited with medium-large dog play mates. He’s been exposed to live stock and chickens without issue. Kane is neutered, UTD on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm tested. He will come with 6 months of heartworm prevention, and 30 days of pet insurance.

Story
Chief was surrendered to our rescue when he developed severe pneumonia. After several weeks of treatment, he's back to being his naught puppy self. He is currently in foster with other dogs, cats, and kids - he does well with them all. He will be best suited for an active, shepherd savvy home with at least one other dog. Chief will be neutered, UTD on vaccines, and microchipped prior to his adoption. He will come with 6m heartworm prevention, and 30 days of pet insurance for his new family.

Kimchi

French Bulldog

Story
Kimchi came to us once her days of puppy raising were over. She is tolerant of other dogs, but doesn't enjoy rambunctious energy. She doesn't want to be another dogs playmate, but she could co exist with another low energy adult dog easily. Kimchi has proven herself to be quite the snuggler, and she's been good with the 5 year old child in her foster home. All in all, we think Kimchi will be a nice addition to any calm, frenchie lovin' home. Kimchi will be spayed, nares widened, UTD on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm tested. She will come with 6m heartworm prevention, and 30 days of pet insurance.
