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.

B.G

Dalmatian + Pointer Mix
8 years old
Female
80 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 10+, 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!

Buddy Boy

Westie (West Highland White 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!

Callie

Chihuahua + Miniature Poodle Mix
7 years old
Female
7 pounds

My name is Callie, but you can call me all yours! I don’t mean to be so forward, but a girl knows what she wants and this girl wants love. You look like just the kinda person that has some of that to spare. Relationships are about give and take, so I will give you all the love you could ever want and you can take me home! I mean, who wouldn’t want to take a pretty little Poochi (that’s Poodle/Chihuahua) home!?! I am house trained, crate trained, I play with cats and other dogs wonderfully, love children 10+, and I can cuddle like nobody’s business! What are you waiting for? Don’t sit there with your lap all empty when I could be cuddling it up!

7 years old-7lbs. My adoption fee is $120 and includes: spay, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, reduced-cost training class, free vet exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

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, my person and my person alone. Very selective efforts are made to find suitable lab partners. Only the most serious of adults are allowed to observe my work, that means I’m not looking for any assistance from children. 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, like nonstop wrestling. 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.

Edie Elliot

Akita Inu
3 years old
Female
60 pounds

You have heard of 101 Dalmatians, haven’t you? Well, did you recently hear about 101 Akitas? Well, I guess there were only 40 of us, but over 100 animals all together were living in less than stellar conditions. As you can imagine, with only one human looking after so many of us, I wasn’t really given proper attention. So I am a little stunted with my training and obedience, and am overwhelmingly shy. I hope the fact that I didn’t have the brightest upbringing doesn’t lead you to believe I will have a dismal future. I am so sweet, even with my shyness. And with reward-based training and consistency, I know I can make up for lost time. Respectful children 8+ would be wonderful to share my new life with, and obviously I know how to coexist with other dogs; a brother or sister would really help me feel more confident. Just not 100 of them, OK, I was really hoping for some intimate one-on-one time in my future. I have already started learning crate training here, and I am catching on pretty fast! I believe things are starting to turn around for me! Now I just need to find someone that believes in me…

Elizabeth Brennan

Akita Inu
4 years old
Female
65 pounds

No one ever wants their personal business splashed over the news and Internet. But there it was in all its glowing horribleness: my life as a neglected dog. “Product of a puppy mill,” I hear them solemnly whisper as I go by. I am not looking for pity. No, I didn’t have the best upbringing, but I will not let that define me as a dog or what I can do with my future. I know that I can make a family happy. It may not be that picture perfect family, but it will be a perfect family for me. A family that has the patience for my shyness and insecurities. A family that will commit to the time needed to help me blossom. A family that can embrace my imperfections. My family. I get along with other dogs well, and they do help me feel more confident, but I would really love to be the center of someone’s world, for once. Children 8+ would be wonderful to live with if they can be calm and respectful. I’m not into too much excitement, and I like things mellow. My nervousness comes from never having had consistency or positive engagement growing up, but it is one of the first things I would like to work on. I have been crate training since coming here and am making really good progress. It’s made me eager for all of the other things I can learn. But first I want to learn more about you!

Gilbert

German Shepherd + Australian Cattle Dog Mix
3 years old
Male
81 pounds

What’s in a name? Well, my name comes from an Old French word meaning Bright Promise, and I sure do promise to brighten up your life—I can put a smile on any face. Once we spend a little time together and you start putting the rubs on my belly, you’ll find yourself in canine bliss! I may look big and bold, but the truth is I’m a bit of a softy. Insecure and longing to trust, I’ll need a patient family willing to boost my confidence. I get along with respectful kids 10+, and I get along with the other dogs here, too! I have caught on to this crate training thing here pretty darn well, and may need only a couple of pointers when I get to my new home! What’s that? You were looking for a regal dog to brighten up your home? Then let me introduce myself, my name is Gilbert!

Jeremy

Pit Bull Terrier
3 years old
Male
47 pounds

Hey. I’m Jeremy. I don’t really know what you want to hear. I am a dog. You are a human. We are supposed to be compatible, right ? Well so far I just haven’t found my mate. I can be a little weary of new people, sure. So I am trying to work on that, you know; being more trusting. I guess I just haven’t found “the one”, you know; that family that is just there for you and will never go away. I have just never had that. I like things low and slow. I’m curious but mellow, and with a few treats and head scratches I’ll be snuggling in your lap in no time. Respectful children 10+ know what that is all about. I love to go for walks, wouldn’t mind sharing my home with a very dog-savvy cat and I play really well with other dogs. I really like the crate training I have been getting and would appreciate my own chill zone in the future. If you are more on the easy going side of the spectrum and think you might like to have me around, I would like to meet you, maybe something special can happen for both of us.

Joey

Australian Shepherd Mix
8 years old
Male
73 pounds

I tried to come up with some catchy song or jingle—you know, like “Joey, he’s so sweet and doughy. He’ll snuggle up and make your heart over-flowy” or something silly like that. I just want to impress you, maybe try and ‘sell’ you on what a wonderful dog I am. But I decided there was no need for that, I just need to tell you straight out: I am a wonderful dog. Sweet, gentle, good with dogs, cats, and children, even crate-trained already (rumor has it I’m housetrained, too). My looks speak for themselves and once you meet me there will be no doubt in your mind that I am the boy for you.

Juicy

Chihuahua + Boston Terrier Mix
1 year old
Female
6 pounds

This darling face is just waiting for a patient and gentle angel to come in and scoop me up. I am a timid lady and have some trust issues. It will take me little bit to warm up to you, but once I do we will be best friends! I may be wrapped in a hard shell, but I sure am Juicy on the inside! Once I get to know you, I will love being held and sitting in your lap…I’m what they call a perfect ‘lap dog’! Hey, that sounds just like this dog I’ve heard of called a Chihuahua. What’s that? I’m a Chihuahua, too? Well, a mix, anyway. I’m just looking for a home without children, a quiet place where I can feel safe (other pets are fine with me). I’m a wonderful little girl with a great personality—just give me a chance to let it shine!

Santa babies, aren’t we cute and cuddly as can be? Santa babies, don’t you want to see us under your tree? Santa babies, hurry up and adopt us tonight! That’s right! It’s not every year that magical elf pibble puppies bless the earth with holiday cheer! But it’s happening this year, and you might just get to capture the magic!

On a serious note though, make sure you are fully committed to and prepared for taking on the monumental task of puppy parenthood. As wonderful as it would be to be someone’s best holiday present ever, we are so much more than a material possession. So if you are ready for the journey of a lifetime, my brother or I might have a little holiday magic to sprinkle your way!

Loreta

Greyhound Mix
7 years old
Female
40 pounds

People vie for my attention but I am waiting for the one who will bring me forever love. I don’t want a flash in the pan… I want a long slow sizzle. So I will bide my time till the right family comes along. I will need a home with respectful older kids 12+, but get along great with other dogs, am used to living with dog savvy cats and am already housebroken. I am a very timid lady and don’t want to just open myself up to anyone. I have been hurt before and won’t make that mistake again. So it will take a little while to crack this shell I have built up around me, but I promise you that it will be well worth your time. I am sweet, loving and affectionate. I just don’t want to have my emotions played with. I want to know it’s the right one, because it is forever right? I just ask for a soft hand to help guide me into being a braver, more confident girl. I am willing to learn,  if you have the patience teach me ?

Mia Monroe

Chihuahua + Jack Russell Terrier Mix
1 year old
Female
9 pounds

I want to be a star. I want to be your star! I’m a little too timid for the spot light, so if I could just have the leading role in your heart that would be wonderful. When they were handing out confidence I seemed to miss out, but I did get two helpings of adorable if that counts for anything. I wouldn’t mind children 8+ as long as they can be slow and easy with me. I work really well with other dogs of my caliber and could even do a cameo in some creative ventures with cats. It’s just a bit of a hurdle to get over my uneasiness around strangers, so don’t be discouraged if there aren’t fireworks when we first meet. I have been studying my lines in my crate at night, and being crate trained gives me time to get into character while you are away. The stage is set for this next big adventure in my life, and I really hope that your love can be my co-star.

Midnight Madison

Pit Bull Terrier + Bulldog Mix
4 years old
Female
46 pounds

Midnight may be the witching hour, but I am no witchy witch! Well, I may get a little witchy with small critters, or wait… does that word start with a “b”? Anywho, I am not a fan of tiny furries, but I do get along with bigger dogs just fine! I love and adore children, and people of all kinds can cuddle me all day and into the night. I mean, what’s better than cuddling at Midnight! I am most of the way house trained, and once you get me on a consistent schedule it will be easy-peasy to put on the finishing touches! I’m totally crate trained and I know there are all sorts of other things you can teach me to beef up my résumé. But I hope to fill the loving companion position in your home until my retirement. I will rely on my good looks and charm to win over the hearts and minds of your family; but if that doesn’t stick, I might have a little hocus-pocus that’ll do the trick!

Mr. Parker

Pit Bull Terrier + Bull Terrier Mix
2 years old
Male
52 pounds

Have you heard of that Parker Lewis guy? Apparently he was a big deal in the 90s and he couldn’t lose. 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!

Muffin

Rottweiler
7-9 years old
Female
66 pounds

This is a slam poem I wrote. It’s entitled “Do you?”

Do you know the Muffin, man?
Can you see the fabulous charisma she encapsulates, man?
Man’s best friend, but not to eat, we don’t eat our friends
Tail wags and second chances
Do you know the Muffin, man?

Thank you for listening, I hope you liked it. A few of the other dogs and I like to get together a couple nights of week and do some creativity exercises. You know, some improv or interpretive dance. It keeps the mind sharp and helps to pass the time. I get along with other dogs very well and have lived with them before. I think that respectful kids 6+ would be great in my new home. I am just not a kitty cat or chicken kinda dog (don’t ask). I have also enrolled in a crate training program since coming to the shelter and I do believe that I am now certified. So if you are looking for a sensitive soul, I bid you get to know this Muffin, man.

Mya

Chihuahua + Miniature Pinscher Mix
3 years old
Female
14 pounds

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?

Oswin

Labrador Retriever + American White Shepherd Mix
2 years old
Female
50 pounds

I have had a lot more Os-loss than Os-win, it sure seems like. I know I can be a little difficult at times. I get excited and like to play a lot. I can’t live with cats, and I need a home with sturdy older children. But for all of my character “flaws,” there are a thousand shining examples why I would be the best ever dog for someone like you! I am the life of the party and things will never be dull when I’m around. I am mostly house trained and totally crate trained! I get along great with all the other dogs here, and have a blast in my playgroup. And there are 996 other things you will discover together with me! I just want that one person out there to give me a real shot. I have been bounced around growing up—no one has yet made a commitment to me. I have so much love and fun and life to share with someone, it is bursting from my seams! I know that if someone devoted their time and heart to me, I would make them the happiest ever! You might think it’s a gamble, but I would say it’s a sure Oswin.

Piggy

Beagle + Dachshund Mix
2 1/2 years old
Male
20 pounds

“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!

Queenie

Sheltie + Shepherd Mix
4 years old
Female
32 pounds

Here is my story. I assure you it is no fairy tale, though it is bound to have a happy ending.
My life began in a pretty rough situation, a true hoarding situation…one where the person hoarded dogs but didn’t hoard any love for us. You could go so far as to say there was a drought of love and care. I moved past that dark time and found myself a wonderful mom & dad, where I got lots of love and learned all kinds of great stuff—how to potty outside, sleep soundly in my crate, ride nicely in the car, and respond to all your human words like sit, down, stay, and come. I even got lots of practice playing well with other animals. But then a baby came along and that just flipped my world upside down. Guess that is just one thing I can’t figure out—how to get along with children. Sure, I understand why I am once again searching for a family to call my own, but as you can imagine, it’s been a tough road for me. And I think it is about time a find a castle, one fit for a Queen.

Raisin

Rottweiler Mix
12 years old
Female
66 pounds

I heard it through the grapevine that your love is going to be all mine. That’s if I am just a little patient, in loneliness I won’t be complacent. Don’t you know I heard it through the grapevine! You know what’s even better than grapes though? Raisins. A grape aged to perfection, just like me! So I suppose I should say I heard it through the raisinvine! Either way, it’s some of the best news I heard in a while, my dear. I wanna be your sugar bear, so anytime you are feeling down let me pick you up! I can be a little timid at first, but when I know it is right, my coyness melts away. I love the other dogs and wouldn’t mind living with a bigger dog in the future. Cats, on the other hand, are another story—living with them is off the negotiation table. But children 6+ are lovely if they are gentle and sweet. Crate training has afforded me the opportunity for quiet and solitude when things get too hectic—it’s nice to have a place to just chill. You need a little bit of natural sweetness in your life from time to time, and I would love to satisfy your sugar craving. So don’t keep me waiting.

Ralphie

Jack Russell Terrier + Dachshund Mix
1 year old
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!

Ten schmen—age is just a number! I assure you lil Shelby here has got four times the love those younger pooches have to give. I mean, just think of how many years I’ve had to practice! I am a very people-focused gal, I love a warm lap and plenty of petting, but I also get along great with other dogs and cats, too. You best believe I’ve got great manners—this lil lady appears to know how to potty outside, sleep soundly in my crate at night, and ride nicely in the car. So how about it….I won’t talk about your age if you don’t talk about mine!

Swizzle

Chihuahua
3 years old
Female
8 pounds

Hey y’all! This is the S to the Wizzle, your grandmaster Swizzle! I am kicking the funky cold medina and heating up the heartbeats with my signature snuggle style. When I was just a wee-izzle, my momma told me that I was destined for greatness. Little did she know that meant being the greatest dog you ever met in your life! I am a cuddle master by trade, with a double major in awesome and excellence. Like Rod Roddy used to say: “All this can be yours if the price is right.” Now I know you’re saying, “Here, Swizzle! Take my wallet, watch, keys to my car, deed to my house!” And I’ll be like, “No, child. You can’t purchase this piece of heaven materialistically. This is something that can only be bought with cold, hard, love, ya dig, brother?” So fork up them feels and you got yourself a deal! Respectful kiddos 5+ can roll with me. I get along with other dogs like a boss. Kitty cats don’t stress me none. I am a wizard of learning, and got my crate training secured like the national reserve. Don’t settle for less when you deserve the best—say Swizzle and watch all your dreams come Trizzle!

You know those times in your life when you look like a dog but you’re really still a puppy? Then people put all these expectations on you to do stuff you’re just supposed to, like, know? But no one ever shows you anything, or if they do it’s just like one time and they’re all like, “Well, I already showed you once” and you’re all like, “Well, I’m sorry I’m not Albert Dogstein!” and then the whole day is ruined and you’re like why did I even come to this stupid park! I hate times like that. Can we not have any of those times, please? I promise to listen; it just might take me more than once to get the hang of it. But with your love, consistency, and reward-based training, I know things will be great! One thing I will probably never learn, though, is how to live with cats, so that is a step we can skip! I do love kids of all ages and other dogs! I started crate training and that should help a lot in the future when I am home alone and no one can watch me. So, yeah, let’s like hang out and stuff!

Yeppen

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

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.

If you’re you interested in meeting me please send an email to bark@familydogsnewlife.org to set up an appointment.
