Story
Meet Fievel, the handsome 7-year-old boy who is looking for his forever home. Fievel is a sweet and sensitive dog who can be a bit shy when meeting new people. But once he gets to know you, he'll quickly become your best friend. Fievel is a socially dog selective dog, which means he does not get along with all dogs. He prefers the company of calm and gentle dogs who will give him his space. For this reason, he would do best as the only dog in the household. But he is wonderful walking with other dogs or meeting dogs in public. Despite his shyness, Fievel is a playful and active dog who loves to go for walks and play fetch in the yard. He's also a smart boy who already knows some basic commands and is eager to learn more. Fievel needs a patient and understanding family who will give him the time and space he needs to settle into his new home. He would do best in a quiet and calm environment without too much noise and moderate activity. If you're looking for a quirky and goofy companion who will be your loving and snuggly friend, Fievel might be the perfect fit for you. Contact us today to schedule a meeting!

Action! Adventure! Comedy! Fun! This pint-sized pittie girl is the complete package! Her favorite activity is tug and her favorite toy is a tennis ball or 3 that she likes to carry all at the same time in her mouth! She lives to play with her toys! But China is also looking for a person to give her all to, to connect with, and to love. She's as smart as a whip, kid friendly and loves to go for car rides. While she is tolerant of other dogs, they don't hold a candle to a human's attention! We think she would prefer to live as an only dog. Unfortunately her first few years of life were not very kind. She lived chained to a tree and was starved. This made her a little hesitant to trust other dogs and people, so she can be a little shy at first and sometimes reactive of other dogs when on leash. But once you get to know her, she's full-throttle fun and also a superb snuggler. She knows sit, down, touch, and high-five! She loves water, whether it's a kiddie pool or a river and somehow always finds the mud! If you're looking for some excitement and a dog who will make you laugh, look no further than China!

Story
Sometimes we all need someone to cut us a little slack and take a chance on us. Tia, a 6 yr old petite little pittie girl, has found herself in that boat. She has spent the last 450 days in a shelter and while the first few months were not so bad (in fact she was such a good girl she was frequently chosen to be the office dog) as time wore on shelter life took it's toll on Tia. She had a few temporary foster homes, a surgery to help repair a ligament injury on her back leg and though everyone was just trying to help Tia, the whole experience left her feeling a bit out of sorts. But the good news is that once in a quiet home environment, with a person she trusts, Tia just curls up like a furry little couch potato and wants to drift off to dreamland while you catch up on your Netflix list. Tia needs stability, quiet and understanding so she can decompress and shake off the last year of her life. We are trying to help her find a home without kids or other pets, and a human companion that enjoys a quiet lifestyle. Tia comes with our full support and has a good human friend that is a trainer. So, whatever Tia and her friend or family need to succeed, we will will provide it. She just needs someone willing to give her that chance. If that's you, please fill out our online adoption questionnaire and we'll get in touch to have a chat about Tia.
