Contact foster at pauladgarzxon10@gmail.comI`m Magnum, the supercharged three-year-old pup here to spread some tail-wagging happiness your way. First things first, buckle up `cause I`m all about car rides – wind in my fur, tunes in the air, it`s like my own doggy party on wheels!Cuddles? Oh, you bet! I`m a cuddle champion, and there`s nothing I love more than snuggling up and soaking in all the love. House trained? Yup, I`ve got that covered too – no indoor mishaps with me around!Toys, toys, and more toys – they`re like my best friends! I`m a toy-tastic playmate, and fetch? Oh, you know it! I`ll chase after that ball like a furry lightning bolt.Energizer Bunny? That`s me! I`ve got more energy than a tornado in a doggy park, and I`ll keep going and going, ready for any adventure you`ve got in mind.Now, when it comes to my fellow four-legged buddies, I`m a bit picky. Some dogs, I`m totally cool with, but others, well, let`s just say I`m a bit choosy about who I hang out with.Energetic? Absolutely. Chewer? Guilty as charged! I can`t resist a good chew sesh, especially if it involves pillows, blankets, or even furniture – oops! But hey, it`s all in good fun, right? And guess what? Even though I might be a toy destroyer, I`m also a cuddle monster. I`ve got the perfect balance of play and snuggle!Sweetness overload alert! I`m like a sugar-coated marshmallow when it comes to meeting new people. And here`s a little secret: I might be three, but I act like a bouncy puppy half my age – age is just a number, pals!Playful is my middle name, and I`ve got a special talent – choosing random household objects over toys. Socks, shoes, you name it! As for correction, well, let`s just say I`m a free spirit who dances to my own tune.Quiet as a mouse, that`s me! I`m not one to bark up a storm, in fact, I`ve only barked once since leaving the shelter. And speaking of shelter, I`m a true people-lover, and being around humans is my ultimate happiness.Family dog potential? Oh, absolutely! With a bit of training, I`ll be the best family member you could ever ask for. And don`t worry, I seem to have this whole housebroken thing down pat.So there you have it, the whirlwind world of Magnum! Car ride enthusiast, cuddle guru, toy aficionado, fetch fanatic, and the world`s most energetic and affectionate pup. Life with me is a wild ride, and I`m here to make every moment a paw-some adventure!

contact foster parent at shellie@naturalbreedkennels.comAvie has went through a 6 week board and train and has become a very well mannered dog. He knows the following commands; sit-lay-stay-come-leave it. He walks well on a leash and corrects quickly He is extremely food motivated and has a high desire to pleaseAvie will not react to other animals on a leash however may be better suited as the only animal in the home. Avie loves to ride in the car especially shot gun. He loves to take walks, but his favorite is water play. He loves to snuggle up and get his belly rubbed. He does not have high energy and would rather snuggle than play ball.

Story
Contact foster at michelek.travel@gmail.comCooper is a very playful dog who loves a good chew session. He does pull a bit on a leash (we use a harness) but is nonreactive to other animals while on walks. I did a slow introduction with our male Golden Retriever, Oliver and they love to play with each other now. Cooper seems to be unreactive to my aunt`s cat. He notices her, but has shown no interest in going up to her. Cooper does have some issues with separation anxiety, in particular when I leave the home. Even if there are other people in the house, he howls when I leave. He also follows me from room to room. He was the easiest dog I have ever given a bath to! He hopped in the tub and stayed perfectly still while he got a good scrubbing. He does not seem food insecure, I feed both dogs at the same time, in different rooms and they are fine. While he seems to be house trained, he did have an accident when we were gone for about 3 hours, even though he had been let out just before we left. Once he is in bed (with us) for the night he sleeps all night. From past notes from a previous foster, he seems fine with children - we have no children in our home. He is super affectionate and loves to be curled up on the couch with us in the evenings with his head resting on us. It almost seems as though he responds to women more than men. He does have a habit of pulling things off our counter. We are working to try and correct that. Honestly, I`m at a loss as to why he hasn`t been adopted as he is a neat little guy!?Cooper - we have been working with him to try & get him a little less reactive to dogs. His crate training has been going well
