Story
Frankie is an energetic, playful pup, born 02/2023. Her parents are large and XL, so she still has some growing before she is mature. Frankie loves being around people and is all puppy. I do not have the time or funds to get her the training she needs. At this time, Frankie would do best in a single pet household with no small children. Because of her strength and high energy, Frankie would excel in utility and agility training. She behaves well in the house and does not jump on furniture or people. Frankie is well adapted to a crate and can be left in confinement for several hours at a time. She is eager to please, but easily distracted. She still pulls a little on a leash, and has not yet learned consistent recall. Frankie is also very sensitive to scolding. She has a history of separation anxiety and clears a 4 foot fence quickly and with ease. Frankie gets overly excited around children and other animals, so introductions and interactions should be very closely supervised.

Story
MISKA is a young, female Pittie mix who weighs 60 lbs. We rescued her last summer, and she's still with us. She's been with us for a year now and takes a great picture every holiday. She asked if she could be a fairy princess for Halloween and we said absolutely. MISKA earned a trip to the spa/prison where, for once, she was the center of attention. In the care of her Paws Behind Bars inmate, life was all about her. Miska is did very well and proved She loves all people and plays nicely with the other dogs. She does say NO to cats. She's happy, she's playful and she's truly enjoys to be the center of attention. She's smiles for every picture! Her perfect home will have a solid fenced yard. Older children are fine as she's strong when she plays. Outside, she's ready to go, inside, she's a snuggle bunny. She is a great dog and will make a wonderful family companion. If interested in adopting, our process begins with submission of OUR online application which can be found at adoptmebluegrasspetrescue.com. Meets are set with approved applicants on
