Story
It's hard for me to do this, but due to health I can no longer keep her. Luna is sweet, very loving .She loves to snuggle. Going for rides and to play ! But reactive around other dogs . Also very proctive of her family. Very high energy . Unless in a leash she will need a high fence as the average chain link of 4 ft means nothing to her. She can jump it like it's not even there . She needs a very special person with patience who understands the breed. . And willing to give her all the live she will give to you !

Story
Hi, Steve Rogers here, nice to meet you! If I was in a job interview and you asked me to tell you about myself, I'd say, "I like toys and treats and people and other dogs, but wait, maybe I'd say I like treats and toys...oh gosh, now I don't know what I'd say because I can't decide which one I'd say I liked first because I like them all!" Steve is friendly and loves to play and eat or eat and play, we truly can't decide the order. He initially came into the shelter system as a stray with some back leg deformity but it doesn't appear to cause him pain or discomfort and definitely does not slow him down. He's been examined by two vets that can't tell if he was born that way or perhaps allowed to linger in a "too small" crate and his legs formed that way. Either way, it bothers us humans way more than it bothers Steve. He has been around other dogs and done well but rough play time with lots of jumping on his back end may need to be restricted. There is no known cure for his back legs other than letting him tell you when he needs a break or to slow down. Right now, it doesn't require pain management but it may in the future so any adopter should be prepared to work with their vet as he ages. He is estimated to be a year old now.

Story
Pawgarita seemed bit sad didn't want to waste away when I first went to get her out, but once she was on leash she perked up and is searching for her lost shaker of salt. She liked being outside and was so excited she did lots of zoomies, so she would love a yard of her own for zoomie time. She was found as a stray, so we have no background info on her. Pawgarita is a 2 year old Boxer mix weighs 52lbs. She is treat motivated, knows sit, and seemed friendly towards other dogs wanting to play.
