Story
Athena is a 5year old American Staffordshire terrier. She's crate and leash trained. Knows sit, stay, high five, speak, heel. Loves walks, hunting squirrels, and running. Very good on long hikes. She's also a great snuggler. Has anxiety and is on Prozac. Would do best in a house without kids. The only reason we can't keep her is because the baby made her too anxious.

Story
Greetings everyone! My name is Leanna and I found myself as a stray after a short wanderlust phase. Life on the road was harsh, as I became quite skinny and badly sunburned on my nose. I found myself in a noisy shelter for 4 months--living in a crate in a hallway and eventually on the euthanasia list. Yikes! But, my story of neglect and trauma did not break my spirit! My foster mom tells me I have a heart of gold and will be a loyal partner for a lifetime! I am around 5 years old and 50 pounds. I like to play with non-pushy dogs, but I need a little warm-up to pups without boundaries. I am a shy girl who needs someone to understand that not everyone wants a stranger in their face because, quite frankly, it can be scary. I need time to make choices about how I want to introduce myself. Don’t most humans do this already?! I’d prefer no kids because they usually don’t have the attention span I need for them to read my energy. I’m a girl with big boundaries and I cannot be rushed to accept you. But, once I do I’ll gladly show you my belly or lay at the foot of your bed if you find this agreeable! Did you say sit or shake? Gladly!! Just give me a tasty treat as a reward-I even love dog-friendly fruits and veggies!! My foster mom says that spinach helps me zoom around the backyard and right over the 4 ft fence if she’s not watching…Is that bad?! I consider myself quite the athlete and love routine exercise because it makes me a happier pet baby! I’d love a patient and understanding dog parent to bring out the best version of myself. Don’t we all want this in life?!

Story
Hi! My name is Ellie. As you can see, I’m a bit of a low-rider…a house hippo, if you will. I’m a spayed female, about 5 years old and weigh about 75 lbs. I LOVE my ball, it’s my favorite toy! I also get REALLY excited when my foster Mom brings me my food…I have to maintain this hippo physique, you know! When I’m done with my ball, I’m perfectly happy to cuddle with you on the couch. I get along with some dogs, others not so much, so I’d definitely have to meet any dogs you already have. I don’t think I’ve met any cats, but I don’t think I’d be a fan. I also do well with older kids as commotion just isn’t my thing. I’m pretty set in my ways and really just like my people. I enjoy cuddling and lounging around the house. I'm great in my crate but could also be left out as I would probably just sleep while you’re away. I do also enjoy going for walks! I love being outside as long as you’re out there with me. If you enjoy binge watching Netflix and going for an evening walk, apply to meet me today!

Once you have established your bond, Sheba loves fully with all her heart. Daily walks keep her smiling that big pitty smile and chew toys help her enjoy the day. She is amazing at puzzles, enrichment brightens her world! She will never turn down a good ol’ game of fetch, she’ll even drop the ball at your feet if treats are involved! The best thing about Sheba is her ability to thrive in a positive, loving environment. She is looking to spend her golden years with those who are willing to give daily massages and endless snuggles. Let’s help make Sheba’s dream of finding her furever home come true!
