Story
Riley is a lovable loyal protective companion I’ve had for 4 years. She loves to play ball and fetch all day of you let her as well as plays in the snow for hours. She is smart and witty and loves to be around her humans. She is not good with other dogs or people she doesn’t know she has a lot of aggression that is fear based. She’s not bitten anyone but does give warning signs. She has had some training but due to life circumstances I cannot keep up with the training and she does have a shock collar only used when there will be people she doesn’t know and she is crate trained. overall she deserves the best life I now cannot give her.

Story
We would love to introduce you to Chloe Lyn. She will be four years old on February 17th. She is the ultimate sweetheart. We love our time with her so much. Chloe Lyn is an intelligent, obedient good girl. She knows how to sit, "load up" into a car, and since she is so polite, she knows how to shake paws. She loves playing tug-of-war with a rope toy. She is all about puzzle toys and likes to eat her dinner out of one! When meeting new people, she asked us to relay that she can be on the timid side and a calm approach is the best way for her to become comfortable around you. Once she is, she will hop right up on the couch next to you. In her previous home, she has done very well with being house-trained. Like most pups, Chloe Lyn loves it most when her people are home but she is crate-trained and does best in there when you may have errands to run. As far as kiddos go, Chloe Lyn has never been around them so it most likely would be best for any children in the home to be about 12ish and up. This girl is all about attention and love with adults; she'd love all of your focus on her as the only pet. She provides so many snuggles, you won't need another pet! Chloe Lyn loves yummy food like peanut butter! We are still working with her to teach her that sharing is okay! Chloe Lyn is a wonderful car rider, prefers to sleep next to you if allowed, and is very gentle and loving. Going for walks, car rides, and cuddling are a few of her favorite things. She is spayed and ready to meet you!

Story
Voight is an extremely intelligent, empathic, and loving dog. He has a ton of strength and energy and needs and owner that is strong enough to handle him and up for adventures. He has graduated from extensive obedience training and is trained on hand signals. He currently lives with an elderly French bulldog and he is extremely tolerant of her and shows no signs of dog aggression. He seems to love all people and loves to learn up against you while you pet him or place his head in your lap. He needs a new home because he has a high prey drive for squirrels and pulls very hard on the leash when he sees one and his elderly owner is unable to handle him when this happens. His prey drive also seems to extend to cats so it is STRONGLY recommended that he only be adopted by a cat free household. He loves people and children but tends to accidentally knock small children oven when excited so older kids may be a better fit. A fenced in yard to run would be a big benefit.
