Story
Phoebe is a 4-5 year old heeler/terrier mix who weighs about 45 lbs. She will need an experienced owner who would like to continue basic manners work, and she's fully house/crate trained. She won't be a dog park dog as she needs a couple one-on-one meets to love other pups. No cats or small kids in her forever home, sorry! She has a big herding instinct. She's a love bug who is searching for someone to teach her how to be a good pet, and will play fetch all day long. She and her foster mom have been attending sessions with Kai's Training Academy, and the trainer will assist in her transition to her new home as well. Apply at www.foreverhomedogs.org to meet Phoebe!All adoptions are $300 per dog for puppies under 1 year, $250 for adults 1 - 9 years old and $150 for senior dogs which include spay/neuter, micro-chipped and up-to-date on required shots. Senior dogs, at our discretion, are adopted out at $150 per dog because we know they will have less time with your family and may eventually have more needs as they get older. But we feel these dogs deserve to live out the rest of their lives as part of a loving family.

Story
Comes with equipment and $200 to help ensure comfortable rehoming. Opal wants to be by your side at all times and loves to snuggle. I adopted her and her brother around 5 years ago as a package deal. They have been great pets, but redirect anxiety on each other which gets amplified if another dog is barking at them. I’m giving Opal up because they had an incident where a sitter let them out into the neighborhood for a couple hours unsupervised and they got into a scuffle with another dog that ended with the other owner getting but when he reached into the dog fight. Because of this I want to split Opal and her brother up so that they won’t hype each other up and can each live more relaxed lives. Opal reacts to other dogs with whining and barking. Other than that she is excellent with people. I’ve had her behavior evaluated and she is good with men and women and has been around kids. She is a great inside dog that will shower you with love. She also loves treat training.
