Story
Kona was rescued when she was 3-4 and we’ve had her for 4 years. We have worked with a couple different trainers to help her not be dog reactive. We have had several issues lately between her and our other female pit bull, Piper, and need to rehome Kona before one of them seriously hurts the other one. Kona is very smart, well trained and knows all the usual commands. She is a great dog on her own but struggles around other dogs. This is heartbreaking for us because she’s so funny and playful and loving but we can’t risk her and Piper hurting each other anymore.

Story
Gunner is very smart and eager to please his people. He's fully potty trained and stays quietly in a kennel during the day when his foster mom is at work. He knows how to *sit, *stay, *come, as well as newly learning *down. During the day, he loves to play with chew toys, take walks, and snuggle on the couch. He is very gentle on the leash except when encountering other dogs (he barks and is still learning to be friendly), and when he's playful, he occasionally needs cues for the right things to mouth on. Gunner enjoys being a backseat companion on car rides and an easy-going couch companion at home.

Meet Valley, a young soul with a heart full of love. His sweetness radiates, warming the hearts of everyone he meets. His friendly nature is infectious, making friends with every wag of his tail. Valley is a cuddly companion, his soft fur a comfort to anyone lucky enough to be embraced by his hugs. He's playful and smart, quickly learning new tricks and commands, showcasing his loyalty to those he trusts. His affectionate nature and intelligence make him a delightful companion. Adopting Valley means gaining a loyal friend, a playful companion, and a loving soul to brighten up your days. Valley is selective with his dog friends and prefers a home without cats and would do best with older children.

Story
Max is a big boy with a huge heart! He's best described as a super cuddly couch potato. He does great in his kennel and stays very quiet and clean. He has not been around children before, so we're unsure what he would think of them. He was very interested in the resident cats while on furlough and seemed to want to play, but he did not get the opportunity to interact with them. He can be mildly dominant around new dogs, but he quickly calms down and becomes very dorky and playful.

Story
Meet Jasper, the most handsome, happy, wriggly, goofy, and quirky boy! Jasper is submissive by nature with a sweet disposition. He is still learning to understand instructions and corrections but earnestly tries to please his people. After a life without a home, Jasper is still learning to trust people, but he's very sweet and cuddly once he has a bit of trust in someone. Jasper good-naturedly plays rough-and-tumble with his two large adult doggie foster siblings, but he plays very sweetly and gently with his tiny foster puppy sibling-- he seems to know he must be gentle with this little girl! He is super sweet and polite but hasn't been around cats or children before. For now, as a large, active puppy who is still learning so many things, he might be most successful in a home without small children-- he doesn't always realize he's not a tiny little lap dog! Jasper keeps his kennel clean and is fully potty trained. He is leash trained and also knows basic commands. He's super smart and highly food motivated. This boy loves loves LOVES to play and would appreciate a doggie sibling or two and a fenced yard. He has high energy but kennels well and will be a wonderful addition to a loving home!

Story
Hey there! I'm Mala and I'm probably the happiest girl you will ever meet. I'm an active girl who loves to play with my best friend, Bob. I love toys/bones, and I'm very smart. If my foster mom wasn't lazy, I'd probably know more than the basic commands. So if you want to teach me more tricks I'd pick them up real quick. I've even taught best friend Bob how to sit. Foster mom was struggling to teach him so I took over. I like people, a lot. Sometimes I forget that I'm not supposed to jump up and give them kisses on the face. But in my defense who doesn't want to know they are loved? I've learned to coexist with the felines in my foster home and I'll leave them alone if they stay away from me and don't run when they see me. I do have a dominant personality but I also really like to play. So maybe if you have a submissive dog and are looking to get them a friend? I could be that dog! But I'd also do great as an only dog. I love car rides and walks or if running is your thing that's fun too. I'm pretty athletic so whatever fun things you want to do I'm sure I'll be good at them too! I also really love snuggles and naps on the couch. Play hard, and relax often is my motto.

Meet Marco, he is a year 1 1/2 pitbull that belong to my late brother . Marco is a sweet and loving dog, he is well trained and is up to date with all of his vaccinations and is also chipped. Marco is great with kids and people and gets along with other dogs. And he loves to cuddle. We can’t keep Marco because we had just adopted another pitbull that was abused. So my dog is a little skittish with other dogs. Please help me find Marco a good home for him where he can be love.

I`m Rilo, it`s nice to meet you! I am a friendly, playful, pitbull mix. I came to the shelter after being on the run since Thanksgiving. I was with my family in town visiting when I got out and couldn`t find my way back. Unfortunately, my family never came to pick me up so I am now looking for a new home. Maybe you are it? I would love a place to run and play, and I do need some leash training, but I take treats gently and am overall a gentleman.

Story
Introducing Foster Topsy, a heartwarming 10.5-year-old bulldog who's an absolute snuggle bug! Topsy's journey brought her to KCEBR, where she arrived as a neglected sweetheart. She had struggled with bad skin, minimal fur, goopy eyes, and the weight of fear. Despite her challenges, she radiates resilience and love. Topsy's vision may be impaired, but her ability to love knows no bounds. Although she might not always locate your exact position, her keen sense of hearing lets her tune into your presence. Navigating her surroundings, both indoors and within her enclosed yard, is a breeze for this spirited bulldog. And you won't believe it, but Topsy has taken to galloping down the hall! When it comes to her preferences, Topsy has a penchant for vegetables - a healthy choice that shows her unique taste. But that's not all. She adores nothing more than catching up on her beauty sleep and soothing herself by sucking on fuzzy blankets. Living harmoniously with a pack of two Bulldogs and two Labradors, Topsy fits right in. Her life has transformed under the caring wings of KCEBR, and the future holds nothing but pure, unconditional love for this special soul. Thank you, KCEBR, for ensuring that the rest of Topsy's days are brimming with warmth and affection.
