Story
I am Pearl Jam - but foster mom calls me PUPPUP! I am very independent and will go to my crate for naps... I love the comfy bed there! I get SO excited when I am happy - like when I haven't seen you for a few minutes! I will jump up and almost do a flip!! Mom is teaching me to jump without touching people but encourages my goofiness! I am VERY food driven - I am the first one to the bowl every time we eat! I have the most beautiful shiny coat which is hard to see in photos but mom says I am STUNNINGLY pretty. I am very much the leader of my littermates and the first one to talk so our people know to let us out or feed us or love us. It's not a constant conversation, but probably too loud for an apartment! I am a MASTER of hunting bark and bugs in my yard. Please put in an application to meet me!!

Story
Looking for an older girl to join your family? Chestnut's looking for a chance to melt your heart. This lab mix's coat matches the rich brownish red of her namesake. At about 45 lbs full grown, she is an adult who knows how to act like one! She enjoys being around other dogs, but more on the sidelines watching the shenanigans versus being all in the middle of it. She is quiet in her crate and adores attention from all her two legged friends. Chestnut may need a few minutes to get to know new people, but she's super sweet and kind hearted soul. She would surely like to fill her days with a comfy bed and a family to love.

Story
Ok...we will be transparent...Saint is not a Saint but the name sticks. See...he is playful, ridiculously silly, loves the water and is up for any kind of adventure and is mischievous and we're pretty sure that makes him the life of the party more than a saint. Saint is a young adult flat coat retriever mix who weighs a lean 45 lbs close to full grown. He is wonderful with the other dogs and loves being on the run and in the mix. Saint would love an active family and would easily join an existing pack. He has a fab appetite which makes for easy training and is very people focused. Saint is ready to redefine what it means to have a heavenly companion sent your way!

Story
Saber is a beautiful 3 yr old 55lb male I have had since he was a puppy. Financial hardships have caused such changes in my career resulting in Saber at home alone for longer than he should be. Saber is a sweet little goofball who is amazing when left out of a cage at home. He would thrive in a home with a fenced in yard, as he LOVES to run and his favorite toy is a tennisball. He do best in a home without kids or other dogs, as he likes to be the center of attention. He doesn't mind a bath and he loves being blow-dried after. We did some professional training for leash walking, but due to me having so little time to commit to training regularly we still do struggle with the leash. He is quick to wear out at the dog park alone &during the summer throwing a ball with him for even 10 min has been enough to get his energy out (he gets sleepy fast in the heat). He is a smart energetic pup & I'm sad to be rehoming him but I know he deserves a different environment to be his best self.

Story
Hello! My name is Hillary aka CoCo! I am a super sweet Chesapeake Bay Retriever. I am about 3 years old and weigh approximately 62 pounds. I have a lot of energy! I love going for walks but sometimes I get distracted by squirrels, birds and humans. Sometimes I pull and need to be corrected. I LOVE going to the park. I run and run and run. I have made many friends-mainly my foster sister, Bosco. We play and play and play until my foster mom has had enough. I have a boyfriend in the neighborhood and his name is Moses. He too is a golden/Chesapeake combo. We see each other and give kisses. I also have 2 other boyfriends that Moses does not know about-Yogie, who is a Rhodesian ridgeback, and Leo, who is a German shepherd. We are always having play dates!! Oh… I forgot Knuckles-the neighbors bulldog. Knuckles was kind of in my face. But I dog-checked him and we are good. So bossy that one! My foster mom has said I have made a TON of advances. When I was placed with her, I would not eat dog food or eat snacks. I now LOVE dog food; and eat tons of snacks. I LOVE bananas, sweet potato, green beans-and of course dried beef liver and dried chicken. I was super skinny-but I have gained weight!! I was also not house trained. I now go outside and do my business. I feel bad because I was so confused before. But my foster mom has been great and I love her with all my heart!!! At some point, I think I was water deprived, so I am a water gorger. Mostly I just eat ice now. I love it and its my go-to. But sometimes I will gorge at the park, and then forget and make a mess in my house. I have to remember that eating ice means going potty outside. And drinking water also means going outside. One time, my foster mom took me to the drive through at Bojangles. I hated it!! I barked at the lady taking my order and then I would not eat a Bo-round. My foster mom was shoving that thing in my face the whole 2 blocks home. First, she shouldn’t be going to fast food, and second, not everyone likes fast food. She tried that same crap when we went through the drive through to get “the Lord’s chicken.” I’m just not a fan of waffle fries. I am not kennel trained. But there is really no need for me to be. I have only chewed on approved dog toys and when I nap-I am either on the couch or on the dog bed. My foster mom got a camera to keep a watch on us when she is away. She was bummed when she found out that me and Bosco mainly just sleep on the couch. I haven’t done anything bad, not compared to Bosco. She’s the one that needs training. One thing I taught Bosco was to look out the window. I love the window and love watching what is happening outside. And Bosco taught me to fetch!!! I’m kind of still new at it, but love a good ball launch!! When we went to the park the other day, I played with the neighbor kids. I just love them!! I am always down for snuggles. And I snuggle hard. I love having my ears petted and generally having quiet time. I just want to be loved!!!
