Story
Gemma is a very sweet and loving dog, she's still young (2 years). She has the typical Beagle and Dachshund behaviors and she gets bored so she needs an experienced adopter especially one familiar with small hunting breeds. She does not do well in the kennel and needs someone to be home during the day or a home without cats where she can be out while she's alone. We did a trial run with one family who had cats and they didn't keep her in the kennel while they were gone and had no issues, however her cats were stressed out so they weren't able to keep her, that's the reason why we're rehoming her, she needs a home without cats and we have a few. If you have any questions let me know!

Story
Hazel is one of the prettiest pitties (possibly some Dalmatian in there) in the PNW and she needs your help! Hazel was surrendered due to needing a TPLO surgery. She is fully recovered and ready to show off her new legs! She has been in a foster for a few months and they have loved having her. She lives peacefully with their cats. Enjoys being around their dogs and grandkids. She is potty trained and amazing on leash with her front harness. She gets excited when people first get home but is actually a huge couch potato. 3/10 energy! She does have some separation anxiety so being in a home with another dog or someone who is home often will be best. She does great for car rides too! ***Her adoption donation has been sponsored. What does this mean? Someone who has been following her rescue journey has prepaid for her adoption donation making her adoption donation $0 for her fur-ever family!***

Story
Biggie is approximately 3 years old, he is a sweet boy with lots of energy. He is very strong so although he is not aggressive he is not a good fit for families with small children or babies. Biggie needs a fenced in yard where he can run around when you are not home. Biggie goes potty outside. He is very lovable and needs lots of attention, so if you are home a lot he may be the right pup for you!

Story
Introducing the handsome Domino! This precious pittie is almost a year old, and he's all ready for his forever home. Neutered and up to date on shots , he's the epitome of sweetness and charm! Domino is a social butterfly when it comes to other pups and simply adores humans! He's absolutely obsessed with them and will shower you with endless love and affection. Plus, this smart boy is incredibly treat motivated and a quick learner. While Domino gets along well with children, he would thrive best in a home with older kids. Why, you ask? Well, when he gets excited, he tends to do what we call "happy jumps"! So, to avoid any accidental tumbles, an older, more sturdy bunch would be perfect. Domino is crate-trained like a champ and is wonderfully well-behaved. He may pull a little on his leash during walks, but with a bit of guidance, he's an absolute gem. If you're ready to open your heart and home to this adorable pittie, look no further! Domino is anxiously waiting to find his forever family. Are you the lucky ones who will provide him with all the love and care he deserves? DM us now! #AdoptDontShop #PittieLove #ForeverHomeBound #AdorableDomino
