Partial sun, a little bit of water, yummy treats to help with training, and lots of love is all that is needed to help this Ivy grow into her full potential! Hi everyone. My name is Ivy. What kind you ask? Well that is a good question! I am a total unknown mix, a hybrid of maybe some pitbull or doberman? But regardless of breed, at 12 weeks, I am a pretty big lady already and will most likely get to be around 50-60 lbs when full grown. But again, it is a total mystery! I am in a very important socialization stage in my puppyhood and I am going to require a lot of time and training to make sure I learn all about the world in a positive manner. PUPPY CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION!! I am a total sweetheart with a love of toys and cuddling in your lap–and even at the same time! I of course still have some puppy manners I need to work on and because I need all the focus on me for a bit, I would do best in a home with kiddos over 5. I would need an owned home with a family who isn’t gone long periods of time, at least in the beginning, until I get a bit bigger and get on a regular potty routine. I am excellent with other doggies and am still getting used meeting kitties, so a dog savvy cat would be best in my home. Though just a little high maintenance in it’s younger days, watching this Ivy flower and blossom while sharing some adventures along the way is totally worth the extra effort! Loving, silly, sweet, and full of that puppy energy, I am ready to start out on life’s long and fun journey with a family of my own! Fill out an application today and we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped, and spayed with an adoption fee of $450.

“All my friends know the low rider”…And that low rider is me! My name is Lil Dude and I am one happy go lucky and energetic 1 year old Basset hound mix weighing around 26 lb. Social and full of spunk, I am always happy to greet my admirers with a bounce and some kisses. Being a hound, I am a very active lad who still needs to work on some basic manners like jumping and puppy mouthiness. But of course I love me some food, so that will help me on my training journey! A TRAINING LESSON OR CLASS IS MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION. With the propensity to be vocal during my excited times and my love of running around, I would do best in an owned home with some space to stretch my little legs. I really enjoy playing with my doggy friends, and they really help me not only learn, but also get that extra energy out that can’t really be satisfied with walks or playing fetch. So another female dog friend in the home who can handle my initial peppiness is needed! No kitties in my home please! With my cheery disposition, I am ready to say hi to everyone I meet out in the world, but would prefer to live in a home with older kiddos over 14. Silly and oh so entertaining, this “low rider is the one to meet!” Fill out an application today, so we can get started playing today! I come to you neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped with an adoption fee of $350.

”Are you ready? Let’s do it! I’m a cute puppy. I’m a Texas gal. I’m a little bit sensitive and looking for my pal. I’m a little bit LA LA LA, a little bit Alexis!” My new hit single based on my favorite tv show song A Little Bit Alexis. So like, you want to know all about me, right? Well, let me give you all the gossip. As you can see, I’m downright gorgeous with my long locks of flowing hair! I am a 5 month old Shih Tzu pup weighing around 10lbs. Though I have a silly little personality once you get to know me, I haven’t yet had experience with meeting new people or socializing in general. Which means, the world is still pretty scary for me and even with appropriate training, I will still always have a part of me that will be a bit shy of new things. So, though I love attention from my favorite people, I am never going to be a doggy who would want to join you everywhere you go, or go to lots of events or parties. I am more of a -hang out at home, maybe meet up with some doggy friends and of course hanging in my room, posting non stop selfies of myself on Insta-kind of gal. Due to my sensitivities and need for extra training, I am looking for an adult only home with experienced adopters. *TRAINING CLASSES ARE MANDATORY FOR MY ADOPTION!* Because I am still learning potty and crate training, I need an owned home with someone who isn’t gone for full workdays. Just until I get a little bit older of course! I seem to really attach to doggy friends my size and love to try and play with them. So another small doggy companion might be great in helping me build some confidence! I am still unsure of kitties but act appropriately, so a kitty would be fine as well. Once I warm up, I am silly lady with a love of toys and being close to you for cuddles! Fill out an application so we can meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $400.

Hello! My name is Christie and well, we could talk all day about how gorgeous I am, but you probably want to know a little more about me. At 2 years old and around 8 lbs, my breed mix is a mystery but the best guess is a Doxie/Papillion mix. I am a sensitive lady, but once I get to know my human pals, I am very much a cuddler and will nap on your lap, enjoying a shoulder massage. Since I can take a second to warm up to new people, I would need a quiet adult only home with no kiddos or potential for future kiddos. My foster mom says I am a very smart girl and have already learned so much! She is also a trainer and has been teaching me this fun “find the treat game”. It’s so enriching and I would be delighted if someone continued teaching me nose work. I also like to play fetch with squeaky toys or a ball. Though I do enjoy walks, I can be barky at new things such as people or bicycles or doggies, so I need an owned home with either a yard to play in or located a quiet suburban area with not a lot of foot traffic to practice my leash manners. Don’t forget-I am a quick learner and already know things like sit, down, crawl, love my crate, and will even give you a little dance for my meals! Cats are not really my style, but I need another mellow male doggy in my home to help me build my confidence. The trainer even introduced me to a big chill lab and I wanted to follow him around the entire time! Speaking of following, I am using my nose to sniff out the clues, will they lead me to you?! Fill out an application today, so we can set up a meet. I come to you vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed with an adoption fee of $350.
