Story
Spike is about 9 years old, weighs between 80-90 pounds, and is deaf. He is a very sweet and loving boy who loves to cuddle. We are trying to find a new home for him because of an upcoming move and because we both work full time and are gone a lot. Spike is by himself a lot and has some separation anxiety. He is very affectionate and would do well with owners who are home a lot and have a yard for him to enjoy. He is a big teddy bear and enjoys walks, dog treats, and having his tummy rubbed.

Story
I rescued Jesco from Matewan WV when he was about 6months old. He has been to training knows basic commands is house broken and walks on a leash great. He does not like outdoor cats seems to be fine with indoor cats as long as he is not left alone with them. He would be a great dog for and active person, he loves to travel rides perfect in the truck sleeps the entire time and is used to long trips. He is kennel broke and does not wine when in his kennel at night. Jesco like his space though he does not eat around other does because he shows his teeth and growls so I separate him at feeding. Unfortunately I’m going through a divorce and I have 4 dogs my job requires me to travel and I can only handle 2 in the RV. Jesco needs a routine, big yard and lots of love, I’m hoping someone out there can give him a chance. He is an amazing dog and it breaks my heart to rehome him.

Story
I got Champ from a farmhouse in West Virginia. Champ has been a great dog and is perfectly trained to stay in the house. He is very energetic and loves to play fetch, especially with a frisbee. My goal is to find a good family who loves to be home and play with him. A family who has more time for him and to work with him. He can be very territorial with his home as well. This has been the main problem. We always have to keep him put up when company arrives. He has bitten two friends previously who tried to pet him. The bites were not hard, but enough to worry us. I coach and am gone a lot, so it is hard for me to find time to train him. He is 3 years old. His birthday is January 6th.
