Story
We rescued her as a gift for my husband at Christmas. She is very skittish and it took her a few months to warm up to the family (me and our 3 teenage girls) but she is still skittish around my husband and she is so afraid when friends or guests come over (even ones she has previously warmed up to) that she hides in her kennel. She is GREAT with our other 2 dogs and she loves me. We were told by the people we adopted her from that she is great with cats too. She has never been aggressive or dominant but she is shy. She is very playful (when she isn't anxious/shy) and is really still a puppy. We were told she was 7 months old when we adopted her December. We have a very busy and active home with lots of friends of the kids, and family visiting often. I think this environment is too stressful for her. She would do great in a home with other friendly dogs (and possibly cats) but that isn't so busy with people. She is a great size - 45 ish pounds. She is a mixed breed.

Story
Coe is an Australian lab mix that is about 75 lbs. He’s partially blind and fully deaf. He’s the perfect dog to be lazy and cuddle up with. Because of his disabilities he cannot detect danger so he does have some anxiety therefore will lay by your feet when you do dishes or want to sit on your lap when you’re on the couch. He does need to be crated when leaving the house because of this anxiety, he likes to know he’s safe in a crate. (We will provide) He’s a very big love bug, he has done great with our child, he’s also grown up with two other dogs but other dogs can get annoyed with him and he can’t sense it so that’s why I put not to be rehomed with other dogs.

Milo is a great dog very friendly and loving. I’m recently divorced and I do not have the time to spend with him because I work two jobs. I also am struggling to make ends meet now. He is super chill and low key he loves people and other pets. He would love a yard but us lived in a small house or apartment most of his life. Please if you need a dog to live or love you Milo deserves better than I can give him.

Story
  This is Lyric, and I find myself singing, “You are my Sunshine”, when she’s playing with her ball.  She gets so excited when we go outside because she knows it’s “BALL TIME”!  Now, I only get to throw it once, but she’s off like a shot and does come back with it—but doesn’t want to drop it—yet.  She circles me in a little dance making sure I see that she has it, then waits while I throw a ball for another dog and she runs after him—she doesn’t want his ball—she just wants to make sure he gets it and brings it back so she can run after him again.  Lyric can be shy at first but she warms up and is very sweet and such a great dog. She loves touch and will indicate when a belly rub is needed.  She listens well and has had 6 weeks of training to help build her confidence at The Complete Canine...   She loves all the dogs, big or little—and initiates play with all of them. She will definitely need a dog friend. At obedience class she was sad that she couldn’t visit every dog there whenever she wanted to.  A secure backyard is essential.  She is also excited when someone spies a lizard and takes off after it.  She doesn’t need to know what’s being chased, she just joins in wholeheartedly.    Lyric is completely housebroken—never had an accident in the house, and she’s crate trained and sleeps peacefully through the night in her crate.  According to her last weigh-in she’s 56 lbs. and she is 5 years old. She has very long legs and (warning) can reach things she shouldn’t from counters and tables. She would do best with an active, attentive, family, prepared to offer her reward-based, loving, patient instruction. She’ll need doggy friends, for sure! Older kids would be good—I think she’d like younger kids, too, but she’s big and sometimes doesn’t look where she’s going, so might be too much for smaller children. I’ve never heard her growl or seen her bare her teeth.   We did her DNA and she’s got some great smart genes, promising an amazing potential with the proper guidance.  There are the three main breeds, Border Collie, Labrador Retriever, and Australian Cattle Dog, (making up about 75%). She does have some arthritis in her back legs, but it doesn’t stop her from running like mad and jumping 3 feet into the air to catch a ball. She takes a pill twice a day—very reasonably priced that keeps her arthritis in check. She loves her people, food, other dogs, and especially tennis balls!   To see this lovely lady please go to our website to fill out an adoption application www.tucsoncoldwetnoses.com   Lyric is adoptable to homes in Tucson, Marana, Catalina, Sahuarita and Oro Valley only. Her adoption fee is $275 with an additional $21 for PACC licensing. She is up to date on vaccines, microchipped and spayed.      *Applications to adopt: wwwTucsonColdWetNoses.com Home Visit / ID and Residence Verification is required.  Compliance does not imply or guarantee adoption.   Approval is the sole discretion of CWN representative(s).

Story
Turbo is 6 years old and originally came from a domestic violence situation. He is a wonderful dog who loves his people. He bonded with me very quickly and I expect he will do the same with his new family. Turbo loves to play ball and is a big couch potato. He is happy sitting around the house or going to the dog park. He likes the occasional walk if its not to far. He is very affectionate. In general, Turbo gets along with most other dogs, but not cats. If other dogs are in the house, he would need to be introduced appropriately and does not get along with small dogs (smaller than 20lbs). If you are looking for a great dog who is low energy, Turbo may be a good fit for your family

These pups are in Tucson, Arizona too!

Story
  Meet Ezee.  He's 3 years old and 45 lbs. Crate trained, house broken, and an exuberant, happy young man. Plus, he's super good looking! Check out those Scharpei ears and that long-legged strong body!  He's also a gorgeous dark brown--in the sun he's positively glorious! We were told he likes all dogs, and he's proven that to be a fact, he even gets along with little Pixie who is apt to give him a snap if he comes too close to her. He obeys dogs he knows have been here longer, and tries to follow their lead. He loves to chase a ball, but will hold it in his mouth and won't drop it so I can throw it again--yet. His notes also said he was leery of new people. He came home and ran into the back yard. He saw me sit down on the patio swing and came right over, jumped up and cuddled into my side! Maybe he just likes old people?? He's obedient, needs a few directions, but I'm very pleased with how quickly he learns and remembers. Those very long legs  can reach the table or counter. You’ll learn to push stuff back out of the way!  He sleeps peacefully through the night in his crate. I don't remember when a new dog was so quickly integrated into our pack. He will definitely need one or more dogs as friends,  and a secure, tall fence around the yard!   Ezee's adoption fee is $275, with an additional $21 PACC license fee. He is adoptable to homes in Tucson, Marana, Oro Valley, Catalina and Sahuarita only. If you would like more information on Ezee, please fill out an adoption application at www.tucsoncoldwetnoses.com or email info@tucsoncoldwetnoses.com  *Applications to adopt: wwwTucsonColdWetNoses.com Home Visit / ID and Residence Verification is required.  Compliance does not imply or guarantee adoption.   Approval is the sole discretion of CWN representative(s).
