Story
Bo has lived with other dogs most of his life. Kennel trained. House trained. Uses leash harness but does pull if excited and might run if able. Loves people and attention. Likes playing with kids just needs supervision he doesn't get too excited. Gets the zoomies and likes to play but likes his naps too. Gets along with other dogs but needs time to introduce them. We have watched other friends dogs for weeks at a time and depending on the dog he just takes time to warm up but overall friendly and enjoys playing with them. Has anxiety during the fourth of July or fire alarms or the wind. Will try to get out of kennel during that time we usually stay with him and he does well. Hes had regular shots and teeth cleanings. Recommend kenneling if out of the house as has gotten food off of countertops or into snack bags while away. Having to downsize and heartbreakingly won't be able to keep him any longer but he has a lot of love and would be a great companion, very loving.

Story
We adopted Nash from a pitbull rescue in March 2020. She is 4 years and 6 months old. While she was initially raised with a high energy Irish Wolfhound and now, a docile 10-year-old Chihuahua, as well as cats and small children, we are sadly looking to rehome her due to a behavior issue, dog reactivity. Nash has had basic obedience, behavioral training, and most recently attended a 2-week high-distraction Board and Train. She is a sweet, snuggle-loving girl with high energy and a high play drive. A couple things we love about Nash are that she has the ability to look into your soul with just one glance, she LOVES bed - for any reason, she enjoys pushing her head into your body for aggressive ear rubbing, you will catch her watching tv from time to time, and the way she asks for a cookie (and will show you where they are in the kitchen). We have many more details about Nash upon request!

** I am currently being housed at our Oglethorpe St location. Come meet me at 71 Oglethorpe St NW, every day between 12pm-7pm. Please arrive no later than 6:30 p.m. to allow ample time to interact with adoptable dogs. ** Howdy all! I'm Flex and I have been told that I am "extremely friendly" and it's true. I LOVE being with people and just like to say "HI" to all. I was found as a stray and started working my charm on my rescuers. They all said, "what a very good boy" and again- they are right! I'm awesome. I love to be loved and to give it back. And I am very cute and am one of those dogs that likes to lean on people. So, if you are seeking a robust cuddle bug who likes to go for fun, frisky walks then we must make a date to meet soon. I can't wait! Love and soggy doggie kisses, Flex. Check out Flex's video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZuQeNugPeg

He so needs TLC from caring people. Kristofferson was left at the shelter in heartbreaking shape. How anyone could have been so neglectful to this innocent angel is beyond comprehension. He was terribly thin with open wounds. Yet, he remained so friendly and calm. What a most excellent doggie! While recovering, he has been charming everyone with his happy little trotting about. And everyone that spends time with Kristofferson says he is "so delightful!" Can you be the wonderful home this sweetie so deserves? Can you fuss over him and give him the good meals he needs? Kristofferson would love to meet you today!
