Story
His name is phantom he is about 8 months old. He is very sweet and full of energy. He has potential to be a very good dog but I just don’t have time to care for him the way he needs. He is up to date on his shots and has a puppy package through Banfield. I just don’t have the time for this sweet boy and need him to go to a good home that is serious about training him and treating him properly.

Story
-Camo comes with 3 beds -A Large Kennel -Toys -Milk Bone -Collar and Leash -Up to date with shots Camo is an amazing dog. We have had him since a pup. He is 6yrs old as of October 2nd. He gets along with EVERYONE. He's been treated bad by other dogs he's attempted to play with. The vet told us its possibly because he hasn't been neutered and dogs smell the testosterone on him. Those situations have created him to be cautious of dogs his size. He gets along with all people but his favorite people are kids. The only people he has bitten are my wife and myself. Lol. I used to play pretty rough with him and I was ok with the bites until my wife got bit, we chilled out. He never bit any kids. He only gets excited and wags his tail super wild around kids. He understands key words, so if you say a sentence with certain words, he will understand what you're saying. It makes me sad to give him away but we are going through a divorce and neither of us will be able to take care of him.

Good with kids, Good with dogs, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Apple can be transported anywhere between the Washington/Canadian border, Spokane and Southern Oregon. Apple was part of a litter surrendered after 2 puppies sadly passed away due to lack of care by their owner. She was born 10/16/23 and is a mix of around 15 different breeds, including German shepherd and cattle dog. Her sister London is also available for adoption; however, after a trial separation, it was determined that they do not need to be adopted together. Apple has one floppy ear and will tap your leg with her paw to ask for scratches. She gets the cutest little zoomies! Apple is extremely sweet and loves to be near her person. She is: -Friendly with large and small dogs. -Gentle with an 11 lb. senior dog in their foster home. -House trained, crate trained, and know “sit.” -Vaccinated and will be spayed. Apple is an absolute sweetheart and the perfect, low-maintenance family dog. Although she is still young, she does not behave like a wild puppy at all. She is obedient and learns quickly, she’s well behaved, and she loves to be a couch potato indoors. She can be shy at first, but she thrives when playing with other dogs. She’s very playful and loves to run around, but she also knows when it’s time to be calm. Apple is looking for an active family with at least 1 dog friend and a fully enclosed yard. Fence is ideally at least 5 feet tall. Must be a decent sized yard for her breed and someone home so she isn’t crated and alone all day. Must be able to provide a forever home. Applications can be found at caringhearts4paws.org Adoption donation is $375, which includes her spays, vaccinations, microchip. Home check is required.

Her sister Apple is also available for adoption; however, after a trial separation, it was determined that they do not need to be adopted together. London is small for a shepherd mix, is submissive with canine friends, and sometimes thinks she is a lap dog! She can be shy at first but warms up very quickly, especially around other dogs! She is very playful, likes going on hikes/walking trails, and just wants to be your best friend. She is: -Friendly with large and small dogs. -Gentle with an 11 lb. senior dog in their foster home. -House trained, crate trained, and know “sit.” -Vaccinated and will be spayed. London is looking for an active family with at least one dog friend and a fully enclosed yard. Fence is ideally at least 5 feet tall, although she is not an escape artist. Must be a decent sized yard for exercise and someone home so she isn’t crated and alone all day. Must be able to provide a forever home.

Story
Luna loves people and other dogs. She is high energy so a trip to the dog park or lots of walking/outside time is great for her. She also loves car rides and cuddles. She is spayed and up to date on shots. Luna unfortunately does not like to be left alone so she needs someone that is able to be home often or can take her with them. She has no problems with her crate/kennel unless you leave her alone.
