Story
Benny was returned to us at 8 months old and really not his fault! He was never given boundaries or taught basic obedience. He's been staying with a trainer and learning these things. While he's still working on it the best solution for him would be to be in home where he would be able to practice his skills daily in a home environment. Benny is a good boy with a great personality. If you have training skills or are willing to help him we'd love to have you meet him. He's very happy and loves to play. We would continue to support your success with you working with our trainer. Benny is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. Ideal home is an active family with the ability to set consistent boundaries especially while he's learning and helping reinforce. His adoption fee is $350.

Story
Riley is a high energy dog that is very protective and has been described as a bit of a diva in our local dog group. She is extremely affectionate and loves to have your undivided attention whenever she sees fit. Riley does great around most other dogs and loves to socialize at the dog park with her friends. We acquired Riley from some neighbors that had an unplanned litter and did not have the space to take care of them. Riley is two years old, housetrained, and with a confident owner has been very trainable if only a little strong willed.

Story
Shadow is a wonderful Velcro girl who has the worst FOMO and forgets to chew in her excitement to eat. She's had her one and only litter of babies at only 1 year old. She's now a big, happy, puppy! Completely housebroke, wonderful on leash, she does need a slow introduction to new people, whether your kid's friends, your family or a biweekly cleaner. She's very scared of new people but once she decides you're hers, she will stick to you like glue. She's great with other dogs, cats, and with older, gentle and responsible kids who allow her to come to them. She will glom onto them as well!! Younger children would be way too scary for her. If you have a heart for a surprisingly trusting furry friend who had a rough start and needs lots of socialization training and love, you won't go wrong with this sweet girl. per her foster family..... If our dog was amenable, we would keep her...she's that awesome! She will be your best gal for her whole life.
