Story
We rescued Grizz from an animal shelter in a less-than-desirable area after seeing his picture on their website for nearly three months. He had been listed as needing rescue because of "skin issues." After seeing his regal face for so long, we couldn't imagine why he wasn't scooped up by one of many other rescues, but his animal shelter people were clearly intimidated by him due to his fearful behavior as they tried to leash him and bring him out of his kennel. Once in the vehicle of our volunteer who picked him up, she described him as a "grateful good boy" who "loves a piano concerto." We think Grizz is a dog who hasn't known love in his life, and as a result he sometimes "freezes" when being stroked or handled as if he's worried about what will happen next. He's a good-sized boy, probably around 3 years old.

House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Oso Jr. (so named because we have two boys named Oso currently) was adopted from us as a small puppy in 2018. He's now 3 years old and was returned by his adopter for attacking a Chihuahua, which passed away as a result of the attack. Oso seems compatible with large female dogs and is sharing kennel space with one presently. On the positive side, Oso is a beautiful Doberman-German Shepherd mix who is housebroken, good off leash, knows many obedience commands, and isn't destructive. During his initial training he did bite his owners when required to obey and resisting doing so; we can assume he is strong-willed and will need an adult owner that will continue to enforce boundaries to keep this smart, protective boy in line.

Good with dogs, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Smokey was one of three dozen dogs left behind by a Doberman rescuer in upstate California when she passed away. We took on a number of those Dobermans, and though Smokey is not a Doberman, he is such a social and beautiful dog that we couldn't let him end up unadopted in an animal shelter. The rescuer was calling him a Belgian Shepherd, though we're not sure he is a purebred dog. He's about 3 years old as of August, 2023, very friendly, loves to run and would make a great jogging or hiking partner, and good with other dogs. We think anyone who loves the shepherds (Dutch, Belgian, German) will be drawn to this exceptional dog.

Story
We had committed to taking a Dobie girl from a high-volume animal shelter and arranging for a flight to bring her to us when the shelter staff sent a video of Lulu, a Dobie MIX, hoping she could tag along. Her puppish antics and slightly vestibular head tilt were simply impossible to resist, so 6-month-old Lulu made the trip that day that saved her life. She is affectionate, dog-social, amusing, and we think probably a Doberman-Shepherd mix, currently weighing 30 pounds. Lulu is a voracious eater and should reach a healthy weight of 60 pounds or more when full grown.

Story
Hello there, future paw-rent! My name is Xena, but they also call me "Brandy" at the shelter. You see, I've had a bit of a rough start in life, but I'm ready to find my forever home, and I'm speaking to you directly from my heart.Shelter life can be a bit overwhelming, and it took me some time to adjust. At first, I might seem a bit jumpy when we meet, but don't let that discourage you. I've come a long way since my first day here, and I've got a lot of love to give.One of my absolute favorite things is going for walks. There's something about exploring the world and feeling the wind on my fur that brings me so much joy. While I adore these outings, I do have to admit that I can be a bit dog-aggressive towards my fellow canines. It's just that I need a little time and maybe a few meet-and-greets with someone who's willing to be patient and understanding as I work on my social skills.Trust is a big deal for me, but once I build that bond, I promise I'm a great dog. I'm a big fan of treats, and they're an excellent way to win me over and reward me for my progress.I did have some trust issues with leads when I first arrived, but I've improved a lot. Now, I can get on my lead without any trouble, and I'm ready to embark on adventures with you. When you see me wagging my tail and flashing my sweetest smiles, you'll know that I'm truly opening up and feeling happy.I'm still a little jumpy when it comes to being pet, but I'm determined to overcome this. With your patience and love, I believe we can work through it together.So, if you're willing to invest some time and patience into helping me build trust, I promise I'll be the most loyal and loving companion you could ever ask for. Let's embark on this journey together, one treat at a time. If you're up for the challenge, I'm ready to be your loyal Brandy. Please consider giving me a chance to be your faithful four-legged friend.
