Story
Things you should know about me: I have moderate energy level, like other dogs at least the big ones that foster mom has. I do not like being alone but pretty content when left with other dogs. I am very athletic and could easily jump a fence less than 6ft. I already know sit, and come pretty well, will lay down and chill out inside. I am starting to play with toys but watch out I will destuff any plush toy! I am crate trained and will go in without hesitation, currently where I sleep. I do enjoy laying on cots outside and chasing my foster brother (a wirehair pointer) who was not a fan of me at first and now we are besties. If you are interested please submit an inquiry to talk to my foster mom and see if we are a good match. Unknown about interactions with children. Would not recommend with cats. Will need to be spayed before going home. Primary Color: Sable Weight: 70 Age: 4yrs 1mths 3wks

My foster mom says I am a very fast learner but need consistency in my training. I am hyper like a puppy and very energetic. I would do best with family with teens or only adults. I would do well with younger dogs my size. I play rough. I am working on crating as I was originally not a fan of it.

Story
This amazing puppy's name is Nova and she is a black German Shepherd puppy around 7-8 months old. At the end of my freshman year at college I crossed paths with Nova. I rescued her from a bad living situation where she was kept up in an apartment all day. I took her in around the end of March of this past year in an effort to give her a better home. She has received extensive love from many friends and family, who have helped me take care of her as she continues to grow. Unfortunately I underestimated the costs of having a dog especially a puppy not even a year old, I do not have the resources to keep up with her vet appointments and other expenses. Nova is an amazing, energetic, and loving puppy who brings joy to every one she meets. I want to make sure she goes to a good and stable home, preferably with experienced dog owners and someone who has the resources to meet her needs.

Hello, this is Kansas. He is a three year old German shepherd full breed. Birthday is April 25, 2021. He has been neutered and he’s a very loving sweet dog in the Raleigh area. Kansas does not do well with other dogs but has been seen playing with very specific dogs normally his own breed. Kansas is not good with children, he needs a loving home where someone can give their full individual attention to him. He’s very sweet with older people, but he is a lot to handle, preferably a better older man or woman to be able to take care of him. Kansas loves to play with his ball and other toys. Kansas is potty trained in crate trained, he is very smart and knows a lot of tricks, including a few secret tricks, he knows how to heal and the place command. Please give my baby a loving good home. Please contact at (xxx) xxx-xxxx xxxx@xxxx.x

Story
Looking to rehome my 3-year-old neutered German Shepherd. He is a good boy and listens well but his aggression has caused me to not trust him in our home with my newborn. He gets aggressive over resources, food, and when put in uncomfortable conditions like the vet. He snapped at me last week and gave me a warning bite for trying to put up his ball.  He can be a very sweet boy most of the time, listens well, knows basic commands, crate trained, is friendly 90% of time and would do well with in a home with no pets or young children. Nothing has changed in his environment nor does he have any underlying health issues per his last vet visit. He is also up to date on all his shots. I have a newborn and I cannot risk putting my family in jeopardy. I tried everything I could. Socialized him as pup and did some basic training and gave him all the love I could. He loves being outside and walks. He would thrive in an environment with a lot of space.

Story
Turtle is such a good boy, he’s loving and sweet. He’s so gentle despite his size. He loves meeting new people and going places. He’s completely potty trained and will listen to what you say. Super food motivated. Does not like to be confined but does well on his own if left loose in the home. He is not crate trained and gets anxiety if confined. He is great with cats, has limited experience with children but hasn’t had any problems so far. He doesn’t know he’s big so he does jump on people. He will follow you around and is just a great companion. Does get car sick so may need something to contain any mess while being transported. He is an indoor dog, does not like to spend much time outdoors alone, he’s fine if you’re with him though. He loved to play, anything that squeaks and rope toys. He’s also perfectly content just hanging out and sleeping all day. He’s happy to play or happy to nap.

Story
Biscuit is a gentle, loving, hyper, timid young dog. I've had her since 6-7weeks old and she is now 2yrs old. I am going through a housing issue and can not keep her. She is fixed and chipped. I believe all shots are up to date. Old Stage road veterinarian is who's been seeing her. The reason I can't take her with me is that she is a little destructive when bored and alone. My job keeps me away for 12+ hrs a day ad I've come home to torn up furniture and a bathroom door. If you are with her or give her stuff to keep busy she is absolutely a doll. Good with kids and other animals. Potty trained for outside and not food aggressive.
