Abigail

Australian Cattle Dog Mix
1 year old
Female
46 pounds

I’m having trouble deciding… Abby, or Gail? Abby is a lovely name, and it means “Gives Joy” which is quite fitting if you ask me. But Gail is real classic, meaning “Lively” and I just know that I can really liven up a lonely heart.  So how do I choose? I’ve got it! Abigail; it’s the best of both worlds! And I am truly the type of girl worthy of such a name. I can bring joy to your family, your children, your other dogs…even your cat! I’m young and fun and eager to learn, a lively lady with a soft side. You should see how quickly I catch onto new things, I got the hang of this crate training thing in no time! See what I mean…Smart, lovable, joyful and lively! The best of both worlds!

1 year old-46lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes: microchip, spay, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Alaska

Labrador Retriever + Pit Bull Terrier + German Shepherd Mix
3 years old
Female
77 pounds

The last frontier of love is just over the horizon… Journey on until the sky reflects visions of friendship, and waters of companionship pour over the river’s edge. Then you will know you have arrived at your destination- Alaska; your new best friend. Adventures of the heart must be thoughtful and exact. One step off the path and love could be lost in the current of loneliness. That is why I take things slow—hearts are resilient but fragile. I don’t want the tragedy of a broken heart laid at my paws, and I may be slow to warm up to people because I want to make sure that they can trust me and I can trust them. That is what love is about, isn’t it? Trust. I trust respectful children 8+ to be considerate of my feelings. I know the affections of other dogs readily, but I have no interest in extending myself to cats anytime soon. I think about all the wonderful things I might be able to have one day, and it gives me hope for the future. I want to better myself so I can in turn enrich someone else’s life with only the best canine companionship. I have taken my crate training very seriously, and this frees up my time at night to rest and think about all of the adventures we can take together. Can you hear the calling? Are you up for a challenge of love? Greatness doesn’t come easily, and ease doesn’t beget greatness. Let us find the greatness of love, together.

3 years old-77lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes: microchip, spay, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Antonio

Rottweiler Mix
8 years old
Male
75 pounds

Everyone has a story to tell. For some it is comedy, for others it is drama, but some of us have lived through our own little horror. If you have heard about, or worse, seen the pictures from the O.A.S story, then you know of what I speak. But my story has a very happy ending, I can just feel it! I know I will find someone to love me and take care of me, help me work past my transgressions, and give me the forever home I dream about. I am not perfect, nobody is, but I will try my best to be your perfect. Kids 12+ will be my ideal match as I do have a tendency to guard what I hold dear (like a lot of us Rotties do), and know that older kids will be respectful of my boundaries. I despise cats, and don’t mind other dogs one bit but let’s be honest: people really are my main focus. That, and playing with my kong. I am already housetrained and am very accustomed to sleeping in my crate, I feel quite comfortable in there and look forward to having my own little bungalow in my new home! My story started out in despair but I hope it turns into the happily ever after I have been dreaming of. Can you help me write the last pages of my life’s novel?

8 years old-75lbs. My adoption fee is $100 and includes; neuter, microchip, reduced cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

B.G

Dalmatian + Pointer Mix
8 years old
Female
95 pounds

You like girls with beautiful curves, right? A little padding for the petting? I know when I see a Greyhound I’m like “someone get that dog a milk-bone”, you know what I’m saying?!? I got all the filling in all the right places- both inside and out! Good looks and a great big personality to match! I get along well with other dogs like me, but I am not a fan of cats or little dogs… They always be in my business and I be like “listen cha-huahua, I will step on you!”.  And respectful children, I don’t mind them one bit as long as they understand how a Queen like me should be treated. I want to be treated with respect, I want everyone to know that I am the Queen of the castle. Don’t be fooled, I’ve still got energy to burn and I do like to work on my fitness, so walks around he neighborhood or some easy trail hiking would be good for me. And you best believe that I’m not only takin’ pride in myself but in my house too…so you know I keep my place clean. I also keep my place safe, real safe, my family too. Once you seen all the rest, come meet the best and get some of this Big Girl love.

Baxter Cash

Scottish Terrier Mix
6 years old
Male
21 pounds

Hi y’all! Baxter Cash here! Four lovely gents from across the pond once said “You can’t buy me love”. Never a truer sentence has been uttered. But you can sure win the affection of a happy-go-lucky hombre such as myself, with the right kind of belly rubbing and treat tossing. I know a wise canine connoisseur such as yourself already knows all about that though, right? Being the dog centric virtuoso that your are, I know you must share the same aversion to felines that I harbor. So a cat free environment would do us both a world of good! I am a crate trained master just to let you know and I love playing with the other dogs here at the shelter. Small children on the other hand I do not like playing with. I would prefer a home with kids 12+ as they are more respectful of gentlemen such as myself. Let Baxter Cash here sweeten the pot and brighten up your dwelling! I’ll be the cuddliest dinero you ever set your mitts on!

Bojangles

Boston Terrier + Chihuahua + Beagle Mix
1 year old
Male
13 pounds

I’m well versed in the art of Tap Dance, it’s true. The first time I heard the clickity clack I felt reborn. The uplifting movement, the shuffle of the feet, looking into your partner’s eyes while you move in rhythm… Oh my, get me out of this place… These other pooches here can’t dance worth a darn! They just cruise around like primates, sniffing each other’s butts and peeing on things… I need sophistication, music, dance, partnership… I’m a young man with so much potential I should be center stage! I’m more than willing to click toes with kids, cats and other dogs…and this crate training thing is a cake walk. Hurry in and help me get me groove back, I beg you…

Buddy Boy

Terrier + Shih Tzu Mix
3 years old
Male
20 pounds

♫My Buddy, my Buddy, my Buddy, my Buddy and me!♫ That will be the song in your heart when you find me in your life! I mean just look at this face! This is the kinda mug that makes Buddy material….And Buddy Boy material makes a suit of love that is prêt-à-porter! Buddy Boy also make a great little protector…my small stature won’t keep me from acting like the toughest guy in town when strangers intrude. Like any good Buddy should I love going for walks, playing fetch, going for car rides or playing tug-of-war. Or we can just canoodle on the couch and watch seasons of Cake Boss on Netflix. I like cake, and other people named Buddy making a difference in the world through cake! I know sit and down, I am house trained, and my crate training is coming along great. I don’t like being over handled or roughed around, so only kids 12+ can be my buddies. I will be the best Buddy Boy that you ever did know! ♫Your Buddy, your Buddy, your Buddy, your Buddy and You!♫

Buster

Rottweiler Mix
3 years old
Male
65 pounds

Do you like to play? Well I like to play! We can play all day! Rope tug, chase, fetch, red rover; you name it and I would love to do it! I guess I never grew out of my puppy phase because I have enthusiasm for days! I love playing with other dogs especially, so if you already have a furry buddy I would love to meet them. Furry felines are a different story though…I don’t think they would be quite as excited about the type of games I’d want to play! I don’t play around in my crate though, that is serious business and I could be employee of the month. Same goes for my housebreaking- my skills could be winning awards! A home with kids 12+ would do me good, as I can be rambunctious and it takes me a little to warm up to some folks. If you need some love in your life and have your heart in a cage, just call on me and I can be your love Buster!

Chance

German Shepherd + Akita Mix
8 years old
Male
102 pounds

Gimme one shot and I know I can hit that bull’s-eye on your heart. My name ain’t Cupid, but I reckon I have just as much love to throw around as that chubby baby. I been down a long hard road in this life, but I never let it break my spirit. Sure I can be cantankerous at times, but when you get to be my age you just don’t put up with as much guff as you used to. That is why children around me should be respectful of their elders. Same goes for my fellow dogs—they should be respectful as well. In my book, you get what you give and I don’t give cats any love, so I expect the same from them, which is fine by me. My crate training has been going really well and I am pretty excited about having my own little den of solace. I mosey at my own pace and don’t have too much giddyup, so low and slow is how I like to roll. I don’t really have any marathons in me anymore. But I still like to get out and throw the old ball around. If you can see it in your heart to give this old soldier one more tour of duty, I will pledge to you my heart, my love, and my honor.

Chiki

Chihuahua + Basenji Mix
3 years old
Male
10 pounds

Are you a little cheeky? I’m a little Chiki! You may not know it at first because it takes me a little bit to warm up to people. But once I feel I can trust you I will totally show you my loving, goofy spirit. I love to run and play with all sorts of toys. I can cuddle like nobody’s business and really enjoy lap time. But like I said, I don’t warm up to people easily, so don’t get discouraged if it’s not fireworks at first sight. Kids 10+ are better suited for me since they know how to go slow and be gentle. I just want to be honest and up front with you. I am housetrained and my crate training is coming along nicely. I don’t mind being around the other dogs here at the shelter, but I would really like to be the center of attention in my new home. I like to chase cats, just for fun, though—what dog doesn’t? If you have the patience to watch the magic unfold, I promise you I’ll be the Chiki little monkey you have been looking for to warm your heart.

Daisy

Carolina Dog Mix
3 years old
Female
49 pounds

He loves me…he loves me not…he loves me…oh, I hope that you will love me! I want to be loved so much I can taste it! It is sweet and sugary like a doggie gingersnap! But I want forever flavor, not just a sample. I had a really nice home for the past year, but sometimes things happen in life that turn your world upside down. I feel like Alice when she fell down the rabbit hole—I know there is a Wonderland waiting for me. I love to play! I know all sorts of tricks! I love to go for runs! I am very active and want to find a forever home that can keep up the pace! I am house trained, crate trained, love to play with other dogs (but don’t like to share my ball), can cuddle like nobody’s business, and am very loyal to those I love. I am wary of meeting New people and can be very protective of My people, so I will need  an adult-only, low traffic home where I will be allowed plenty of time to warm up to strangers, but when the feeling is right we will be bubbling with love in no time. The one thing I can’t seem to do is get along with cats, but who wants to be friends with those snooty butts anyway? They say if you love a flower to let it be, for if you pick it, it will cease to exist. But if you pick this flower then we will exist together!

Dexter

Longhair Chihuahua+ Pomeranian Mix
4 years old
Male
8 pounds

Welcome to my laboratory! I like to perform all sorts of experiments in the name of science. I don’t like to be bothered with nonsense whilst conducting my analyses ‘cause I put my full focus and attention into that which I cherish most. Very selective efforts are made to find suitable lab partners. Only the most serious of adults are allowed to observe my work and possibly provide limited assistance. I don’t mind having other dogs or cats around: I find they can be very useful in acquiring certain materials that may otherwise be hard to come by. For extra-super-top-secret experiments I prefer to retire to my crate for the quiet and extra concentration it affords.  After a long hard day of scientific investigation, I like to curl up in a nice lap and have my ears rubbed. If science is a passion for you, too, maybe we can exchange research notes! I am getting really close to breaking the love genome and any input you could provide will be well rewarded with my heart.

Donnie Duke

Pit Bull Terrier
5 1/2 months old
Male
45 pounds

So I am thinking of starting a Boy Band. Well it would be a Puppy Band, but we would harmonize, have sweet dance moves, and just be generally cute. It sounds like a pretty sweet gig, and some of the other dudes around here are down with the idea. Our first single is going to be I Wanna Pup You Up; I got the melody down I am just working on the harmonies. I am only 5 ½  months old but I got lots of ambition! Maybe you would wanna be my manager? I am going to need someone to give me guidance, teach me to be the best puppy I can be, and keep me away from all the negative aspects of the industry. You don’t wanna see me end up another sad “Where Are They Now” documentary do you?

Female
67 pounds

OMG, I have the best news for you! I’m available for adoption! That’s right, Flicka here could be all yours. There are just a few thing I ask of you.
First, you must fully appreciate how wonderful I am. Wouldn’t want you taking for granted what a sweet, gentle, well mannered and lovable lady I am.
Second, I ask that you allow me the opportunity to show off how friendly and social I am. Playing with kids would be great, other dogs are swell too. I do however require an environment absent of cats.
And finally, please help me reach my full potential. I have a good start on my training- already crate trained and picking up on the basics but there is so much more for me to learn and there is no need to waste this sort of promise.
Do we have a deal?

Georgia

Doberman Pinscher + German Shepherd Mix
2 1/2 years old
Female
54 pounds

Sweet and neat as a Georgia Peach! I’m also real smart, super-duper loyal, a little protective, and ready for whatever adventures lie ahead. I’ve enjoyed my journey so far—playing with all these other doggies, meeting kitty cats, and learning all about this crate training business. There’s a lot more I’d like to learn—not only would training classes help you and me bond, but they would be great socializationsince I get a little nervous around lots of new people. A good confidence boost should do wonders for me! That means that I will do best in a home with a patient, active family without really young children. This whole rescue business has my head spinnin’, and I can’t tell which way is up! But I promise, if you help me find the surface, I’ll promise to be the best companion I can.

So come on in and take Georgie Porgie away!
Ok, ok. So maybe I’m not so good at writing nursery rhymes, but being that I am just a babe myself I really should have someone singing them to me instead- Don’t you think? I’ve got all the making of a wonderful pooch; friendly, playful, smart and sweet…as puddin’ & pie! I just need a family dedicated to giving me all the training and guidance I need. Trips to the park, playtime with other dogs, snuggles fests with the kids. Heck, I’ll even befriend a cat if I need to. I’m just longing for a caring home, a soft bed and someone to sing me to sleep at night.

John

Miniature Pinscher
6 years old
Male
14 pounds

They call me Big John Studd. I came here to the Portland metro area with forever love on my Studd list. I am going through the contenders one by one, crossing names off my list, and have yet to meet a contender who can match my expertise. Without a body and brain like mine, it will be hard for anyone to match my skill level. So I am issuing a challenge: If there is any punk out there that thinks they can out love me, I will lay 15,000 on the line! 15,000 kisses go to the challenger that can best me in a love match. And I will go anytime or anywhere—we can do this in the street, we can do this in a crate, or we can do this in the dog park. If you think you got the heart to challenge Big John Studd, step on up! No one can match my heart or determination! Once I get you in my love clutches, they will need to be calling the ambulance and taking you out on a stretcher. I can love kids 10+. I can love cats. I can love dogs of any love. No one can out love me! I train myself every night in my crate, going over love holds and working out new love moves! Big John Studd will out love anyone that thinks they can take me. So put your love where your mouth is if you think you got the talent and determination, but just expect to go crying home to mommy, because no one is going to best the love machine called Big John Studd!

Lucy

German Shepherd

I love Lucy and she loves me.
We’re as happy as two can be.
Sometimes we quarrel but then
How we love to make up again.
Lucy gives kisses like no one can
She is my missus and I’m her man
And life is heaven you see.
Cause I love Lucy,
And she loves me.
Do you love Lucy? Of course you do! Just think of all the zany adventures we can have! Life is just a ball; you either dance to the music or watch from the sides and I’m the kind of lady that wants to waltz into the moonlight with you. After a night of elegance we can cuddle up and drift away to dreamland. I can tango with kids of any age, and I salsa with all the dogs in my play group. I just don’t partner with cats, so don’t ask me to mamba with meowers. I have been learning about crate training while I have been here, and would like to have my own little dance studio where I can practice my moves while you’re away. Come in and see why all the people say I Love Lucy!

In the spirit of that Parker, this Parker is here to recapture that victorious spirit and share it with my new forever family! I’m even gonna add a little more ‘wow’ by adding some class, so call me Mr. Parker. That’s right! We will be the tragically hip kids in the neighborhood that just can’t help being awesome! Everyone will wonder how it’s possible for one family to be so cool. Then that’s when you hit them with the Buddha breakdown, and let them know that you are only the sum of your ability and energy at your current moment in time. Then they will be like “whoa,” and we’ll just meander into the sunset having blown someone’s mind. I like to have fun, and I love to play with kids of all ages. I can get a little over stimulated pretty quickly, so I like to keep my dog-on-dog interactions fewer and mellow. I like to keep my cat interactions null and void—can’t stand those smarmy little jerks. I mean, it’s one thing to be cool, but it’s another to try to convince everyone you’re cool. Cats are just try-hards. After a long day of living the dream, I like to cozy up in my crate and reflect on the day’s happenings. You should join me in the winner’s circle and enjoy the grand prize of love with me, because this Mr. Parker Barker Can’t Lose!

Chihuahua + Miniature Pinscher Mix
3 years old
Female

I know, I know, once you see my adorable face and soft loving eyes you will be transfixed like a sailor to a siren. But hark my lovelorn admirer; I am cautious to just hand over my heart. I need a family that will understand me fully; my ambitions, my dreams, my desires. Can you dream a little dream with me? Will you walk with me hand and paw, build me up, give me the life I have so longed for? A life of stability and security. A life of love and understanding. I can be reluctant at times, I know. But that doesn’t mean my love diminishes. My love for other dogs is indiscriminate, the heart wants what the heart wants, and the brain has nothing but conjecture. My love for children is solely placed on those of the 10+ category. My love for my crate has its good days and bad, but even with my reluctance to enter, once I am curled up and and comfy inside it brings me much comfort and security. My love for other creatures such as dogs is joyful and robust! But cats, no thank you!  With time I feel we can foster a love and understanding that not many have the joy to experience. Will you dream with me?

Hello I am Olaf, you know that that stands for? Outstanding, Lovable, Adorable, Friendly…Yep, that’s me to a T. It’s easy to see why everyone falls under my spell. I am quite the enchanter. I also am gentle, sweet and oh so fun. I am still a puppy at heart and really like bounce and play and roll over for tummy rubs- but I was always told that that’s what puppies do. I play great with other dogs, I love children, love to go for walks and I am already crate trained. So why not come on in and spend some time getting to know me. I’m just full of personality and charm and if you’re looking for a outstanding, lovable, adorable friendly pup look no further then Olaf!

Onyx has a pending adoption

Labrador Retriever + German Shepherd Mix
6 years old
Female
75 pounds

I’m not sure if true perfection even exists…but if it did, I’d be it! The name is Onyx, and it’s a pleasure to meet you. I get along well with other dogs (just so long as they know I’m boss) and I’ll be happy to share my home with kitty cats. What else…what else…oh, I love a good belly rub and enjoy the company of children! I am a gentle girl, so I do ask that you also treat me gently. I’m crate trained, rumor has it I’m housebroken, and I walk nicely on leash. I’m old enough to know how to mind my manners but still active enough to go on a hike—what else could you ask for in a pooch?

Oreo

Italian Greyhound + Dachshund Mix
5 years old
Male
12 pounds

I may be sweet and sugary, but I have to get to know you before you can just reach into my cookie jar. I may be small but I that doesn’t mean I ain’t mighty! I won’t hold back from protecting the people I know and love. I guess that can be a problem when strangers come over to my residence. Like in my last home, this weirdo would come to our house 6 days a week leaving mysterious envelopes of paper. He’d push them through the door slot, or leave them in the box out front. I mean ,who knows what strange or scary things he was trying to get into our house! And just like any loyal family member would do, I let him know he was not welcome! I thought I was doing the right thing, but I’m the one that got in trouble. Now I have the opportunity to spread my special brand of love to others more accepting of my personality. I am house trained and crate trained. Once I get to know you, I will love cuddling with you. Kids 12+ are more my age range because they know how to be respectful, and I take respectfulness very seriously. I get along very well with the other dogs here, and I can get along with cats as long as they are familiar with dogs. I might just be the sweetness you have been looking for, but the only way to find out is to come take a nibble.

Penelope (but just call me Penny)

Jack Russell Terrier + Pug + Chihuahua Mix
1 1/2 years old
Female
19 pounds

Are you looking for someone to give your heart to, but fear they will take your precious gift in vain? Well, if you remember a little story called The Odyssey, Homer’s wife Penelope stayed true and faithful during his long absence, and I can promise you that level of commitment to your heart, as well! I ask only that you provide me with three things: Patience to give me the time and care I need; Understanding that I have a great undertaking to become a truly magnificent dog, and may at times be protective and unsure of strangers; and Love, unabashedly sharing every ounce of your heart with me and knowing you have mine in return. I am housebroken already and crate trained, too plus I know all kinds of tricks. Wonderful with other dogs and older children, and very playful and affectionate with the people I trust—but there is always more to learn. If you can promise me these three things then you will find my faithfulness at your beck and call. Come, let us create our own Odyssey, and see where the future takes us.

Penny Pipsqueak

Chihuahua + Dachshund Mix
10 months old
Female
6 pounds

What’s the old saying? Ah yes, “A Penny saved is a Penny earned.” Save this little Penny and you’ll earn yourself a friend for life! I am real lap-dog material, super-duper sweet and super-duper shy, too. But there are just so many other things I am good at: sleeping in my crate, enjoying the company of other doggies, respecting kitties, and enjoying the gentle affection of children 6+. I’m sure you get the point—I am a fragile lil Pipsqueak. No surprise there, I am only 6 pounds and still just a pup, so I’ll need a home where I will get all the love, patience, and socialization I need to blossom into a confident best friend. Hurry in and meet your new lucky charm!

Pete

Labrador Retriever + Shar Pei Mix
5 years old
Male
50 pounds

Hi! My name is Pete and I am pretty sweet. I keep my house neat, I have four feet, and sometimes I get grumpy when I eat. Children 10+ would be best around me. If you have love in your heart then I think we should meet! I get along great with other dogs (unless I am on leash) and indoor cats are neat. I have been crate training since I arrived here and it’s so rad I could write a tweet! But I don’t have thumbs so my texts are pretty weak. I really want to find a forever family I can keep. I have a lot of my heart seeds to sow, and look forward to what I reap. Am I on your radar? Did you hear a bleep? Let’s talk about our dreams and wishes before we go to sleep. Am I getting ahead of myself? Maybe you should come meet me before I get in too deep!

Piggy

Dachshund Mix
2 1/2 years old
Male

“Little pig, little pig, let me come in!” “Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!” It’s true, I can be shy and shut out strangers, but all I really want is love. Oh, cruel world, why must you torment me so! I know, I know, I must learn to trust others if it is love that I seek. But it is just so hard sometimes! How am I supposed to know who will be the person of my dreams? Maybe you can help me? Show me that there are good people out there. Show me that children over the age of 8 can be trusted to play nicely and treat me with respect. Can you give me the time to let my heart warm up to you? I get along well with the dogs and I have lived with cats before and get along just fine. I am house trained and my crate training is coming along great. Can you show me that not everyone is a big bad wolf? Then maybe we can build a happy little home together!

Ralphie

Jack Russell Terrier + Dachshund Mix

Male
12 pounds

Think you’ll be glad to meet lil Ralphie? Oh, you definitely will be! I am one adorable little dude with a big personality, and pretty darn sweet once I get to know you—I just need you to take things slow at first. I was found as a stray, so not much is known about my past. I figure that with my good looks and endearing personality it shouldn’t be too hard to find a family that is willing to learn things as we go. I am already crate trained and housebroken, too. I do well with other dogs but can’t stand kitty cats, do well with respectful kids 10+ and am a real quick learner who’s truly eager to please. I’d say I am well on my way to becoming a wonderful little canine companion, now I just need your help!

TolTol

Labrador Retriever + Husky + German Shepherd Mix
1 year
Male
65 pounds

You don’t want just a slice of love, right? You want “TolTol” love! A love so complete that you can’t understand how you ever existed without it! That is what I bring to the table. It will take a bit for it to be discovered, but it is there. Like a diamond in the ruff! Sorry, dog pun. But I am “TolTol-ly” serious when I say I can be fearful when meeting new people. I am young, but I wasn’t brought up in the loving, supportive environment doggies deserve. I would do better in a home with children 8+ because they know how to be slow and gentle with sensitive souls like me. Cats I can handle, but they still weird me out. I mean, have you ever looked at a cat? They’re creepy, man! I really do love my crate training! I love to have a place all my own and all for me! A place where I can unwind when things get “TolTol-ly” overwhelming. I get along well with other dogs and they bolster my confidence, so I wouldn’t mind sharing a home with a new fur buddy! Like a puzzle, I may be slow to put together piece by piece, but once you see the “TolTol” picture I think you will fall in love.

Yeppen

Labrador Retriever + Husky + German Shepherd Mix
1 year old
Female
64 pounds

I have a thirst for love. Ironic, since my name is an Aboriginal word meaning water. Like water, you can’t hold it or mold it without the proper tools. I was given a pretty bum start to my life. Neglected by my first family and never showered with the love and attention a new puppy seeks. I am still young and have a lot of life ahead of me, but I am basically back to square one. It will take a strong commitment from you to help me become the dog I know I can be.. Only the most respectful children 10+ will be helpful in acclimating me to the new loving home I have pictured in my head. I see myself on a lush green lawn, laughing and playing with my loving family, soaking up the sun. But when I meet new people, dark clouds roll in and my anxiety takes over. I get along great with other dogs and would really like to have another to show me around and kinda lead the way for me. And I really like that I have been crate trained ‘cause it’s nice to have a place to chill out when things become too much. It won’t be easy, and it won’t be quick, but the love I have buried within me will be the greatest reward for my true, loving, forever family.

Name’s Zoey ZuZu and I think I love YouYou…yes, it’s TrueTrue! If loyal and lovable is what you’re looking for, then I’m your girl. I’m serious—I’ll stick to you like GlueGlue! Are you serious about finding true love? Well good, cuz I’m serious indeed. I’m serious about loving people. I’m very serious about cuddling in bed, under the covers, with my people, with kids. I seriously love every person I meet! I’m very serious about playing with other dogs. I totally love hanging out with my canine pals, but I don’t always like to share my stuff. And believe me, I’m very serious about my distaste for cats! I’m a smart gal who already has a great jump on my training; I’m crate trained and rumor has it I am housebroken already—yep, this ZuZu knows how to DooDoo outside—and I know a few basic commands. I would like to continue learning, and I’m totally serious when I say I want to be the bestest dog in town. I’m very quick to learn and eager to please—seriously, I’m totally awesome. So check it, let’s make a deal, a very serious deal. I promise you good times, great companionship, and forever love. You promise me long walks, a soft bed, a New York steak once in a while, and of course, forever love. Deal? OK, forget about the steak then…now do we have a deal? WooHoo! Zoey ZuZu is so ready to go home with YouYou.
