Kanga and Roo would be a great addition to your household if you are interested in adopting a pair, although not required. Both walk well on a leash and are very playful and would love a fenced yard. Both are also super smart and have learned to sit when their foster holds up an index finger. They even sit for all meals and treats. They are fun, playful pups and play well together, burning off their energy. Roo smiles a lot :) and both are so cute!! They are very nice little dogs, not big barkers.

Story
Meet Cassidy, the Charming Introvert! Get ready to fall in love with Cassidy, a pale white pup with captivating puppy eyes and a heart-shaped nose. Despite a challenging past where he navigated the streets and scrounged for survival, Cassidy's resilience shines through. Now, he's on a mission to find a loving home where he can feel safe and cherished. Cassidy is a dog with a gentle and timid personality. Loud noises and intense reactions make him nervous, and he prefers a calm and serene environment. He needs time to warm up to people and build trust before he feels comfortable and secure. This smart little guy knows some tricks already and is a well-mannered companion during feeding time. He's polite and respectful, showing his intelligence and willingness to please. Sitting on command is just one of the many tricks he has mastered. When it comes to relaxation, Cassidy's favorite spot is snuggled up on the couch or bed. He loves cozy naps and enjoys sleeping in when it's chilly or rainy outside. His head and ears are the sweet spots for scratches and cuddles, and he might even roll over for a belly rub! Cassidy is searching for someone who will shower him with love and understanding. While he respects cats and tolerates other dogs, he prefers his own space and will often retreat to a separate room. However, when the other dogs are not around, he comes out for attention and cuddles. He enjoys the quiet company of a select few men, seeming to have a preference for quieter individuals. It's important to note that Cassidy is not a fan of chaos, whether it's caused by humans or other dogs. He seeks a serene and calm environment where he can feel at ease. Car rides are a pleasure for him, as long as he is the sole rider and not in a crowded car with other dogs. To provide Cassidy with his ideal home, a single, quiet man with no other dogs or possibly a submissive dog that Cassidy meets and approves of would be the perfect match. An at-home social life that aligns with his introverted nature is preferable. While Cassidy tends to avoid general interaction and may not seek pets, hugs, or kisses, he has his moments of affection when he feels comfortable. Cassidy may be an introverted hermit, but beneath his reserved exterior lies a dog yearning for love and understanding. If you're someone who appreciates the quiet moments and can provide a calm and peaceful environment, Cassidy will reward you! (Only) Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX)

Story
Athena is a 5-year old, very loving, intelligent and sensitive dog that I have taken in due to a friend's emergency situation. She is crate-trained and has basic training (sit, shake, lie down, etc.) In her settling-in phase she was reactive to other dogs but is now pretty ho-hum, has been to doggie day care previously and will be going again soon. I live in an apartment in the city and she has been a suburbanite, so kudos to her for the transition! She loves playing, walks, (She's a big-time sniffer!) and downtime in her crate. (She enjoys snoozing in her crate after a long walk.) She is also a big cuddler, and loves her "lovie-dovie" time. She is well-behaved, does not get on furniture, surf coffee tables, or jump up for food. One command and she is back in her crate. She seeks cues and is eager to please. She is a love, and needs a forever home. Athena comes with her crate, toothbrush and toothpaste, grooming brush, basketful of doggie toys, and is fully vaccinated.
