Story
Yip Yip! I'm Appa, and I'm a very sweet and fun boy looking for a quieter home where I can get lots of daily exercise and playtime while I work on building my confidence! I am a sensitive soul, so it will be important that my adopter takes things slowly with me, building a bond using lots of praise and treats. Since I am sensitive, I am not going to be a good fit for a home with children. I get along with the dogs I'm in playgroups with, however I don't seem to love cats.

Story
Hello! We are looking for a loving home for Ollie. He showed up on our doorstep and we looked for his previous family (posted on every forum/site and contacted local shelters), but no one came forward. He has been with us for a little while, but we are not able to keep him. He does not do well with cats and has started to show aggression towards them. We believe he came from a formerly abusive home because he is very protective of his space, flinches as certain objects, and is wary of men. He would do well as an only dog, or with other dogs who tend to stand up for themselves if play gets a little rough. He is generally a very good boy when he’s on his own! He loves to play fetch and would play for hours if you let him. He has a goofy smile and will stand on his back legs to hop to you and give you a hug. We know that in the right setting he will be a wonderful pet. We ask for a $50 fee just to make sure he goes to a good home that will take care of him like he deserves.

Story
Bandit is a loving and sweet dog but ever since we brought a baby into our home he has became insanely jealous and lashes out on our other dog. He still has a lot of love to give but preferably in a house with no babies. He actually loves kids and people but I think he feels threatened by babies for some reason.
