Gemma

Beagle Dachshund

Female, Young
Tacoma, WA
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Details
Good with dogs, Not good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, House-trained,
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!

Auggie

Australian Shepherd

Male, Adult
Tacoma, WA
Size
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Good with kids, Not good with dogs, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Mini Aussie, 9 yrs old. I adopted him from another family when he was 6. Potty trained, up to date with shots, neutered and kennel trained. No health issues, goes to Canyon Road Veterinary. No prior professional training. Will come with kennel and food. He needs to he the only pet as he has resource guarding and it’s hit or miss if he gets along with other dogs (usually not). He’s fine with small children, he can just get excited and possibly knock them down. He’s pretty chill for an Aussie but is down for hikes or little outdoor adventures. He has some separation anxiety so can pace in the house while you’re gone so we usually kennel him. I just had a baby so having 2 under 2 makes it hard for me to give him the love and attention he deserves.
