Story
Margot is a sweet girl who was rescued from a bad situation. Her previous owners kept her locked in a kennel with no food or water for days on end, and used a shock collar on the highest setting. When I rescued her, she had burn marks all over her neck. Due to the abuse she suffered, she is hesitant when meeting strangers, though she loves deeply when she gets to know you. She was born on August 1, 2022 and weighs 20 pounds. She's spayed, up to date on vaccines, and currently taking Fluoxetine for her anxiety. She is great with kids, other dogs, and cats. She does like to chase the cats, but in a playful manner. She's potty trained, but with her anxiety, she sometimes has accidents in the house. She needs a loving, stable home with someone who is patient and knows how to deal with anxiety. I will make sure that whoever adopts her has one full refill of her fluoxetine to get her by until vet care is established, as well as year supply of Heartgard and 6 months of Nexgard.

Story
Looking for a good home for Teddy. He is a little over 2 years old. I adopted him when I was not working and have since taken on a new job that requires me to work 6-7 days a week sometimes. Teddy does great with my 5 and 6 year old. He has a dog sibling (Min pin) but she is old and small so he mainly just leaves her alone. He doesn't chew things up, is house trained, crate trained, loves car ride and walks. But he is just isn't getting the attention he needs. He is not neutered, but I can do before adopting him out. He doesn't do well at dog parks as he is protective so if dogs rush up on him he growls and I have never let it get any further and just avoid them as I don't know if he would ever bite out of defense mode. He still could use training on the leash as he is strong and still pulls. He still has so much life to live and deserves more attention then I can give. He has never been around cats so not sure what he would do.

Poor Nana!! Well it was Poor Nana before we took her in from a rough situation where she was miserable. However the moment she came home she went from a mopey old dog to a springy puppy! She loves to play fetch and tug o war with her people! While Nana is okay with other dogs and cats she does prefer her people over other animals. She needs a home that is easy going and that will throw her tennis ball around in the back yard. This young lady will do well in any home as long as she is loved! The only reason we are rehoming her is because she was only meant to destress with us and then find her new home!

Story
Emerson and Allie are adorable 11wk old puppies that are ready for their new homes. Allie has a more black face and she is about 12lbs. Emerson is about 15lbs. They are both very friendly, affectionate puppies that would love to have socially active homes. They are very smart and are already learning a few basic manners. Allie will bark a little bit when she’s trying to get your attention. Emerson is a very quiet boy. Another playful dog in the home for each of them would be ideal. Allie is very outgoing. Emerson is a bit on the shy side until he gets to know you. Both have wonderful, sweet temperaments. They appear to be Doberman Lab mix, but we’re not quite sure. Whatever they are, they are wonderful, social, playful pups that would make an excellent addition to an active family with school age kids. They DO NOT need to be adopted together. They must have a 5ft or higher, securely fenced yard. Because of their young age, they should not be left alone for more than 4-5hr intervals.

Story
Beautiful Kate is approx 3yrs old and weighs just over 50lbs. She is a very friendly girl that has been in foster for far too long. She should have her own, forever home! She is a wonderful girl that will do best with a person or family that will take her on lots of long walks and hiking. She’s always up for a new adventure. When she’s home, she’s an easy going girl that will hang out with the other dogs or just nap at the feet of her person. She is wonderful with dogs of all sizes so another dog in the home would be just fine, but it’s not required. Although she is a little interested in cats, she’s doing ok with the residents kitties, too. She will do best with Pointer experienced people that will take her on breed appropriate activities. She is also very friendly so a socially active home would also be ideal. Kate is fully crate and house trained so she can be left home alone for a reasonable amount of time. She is doing awesome with her leash skills and other basic manners and commands. She must have a 6ft or higher securely fenced yard.
