Ashley

Labrador Retriever + Sheltie Mix
2 years old
Female
28 pounds

I just want to take things slow. See, my sis and I have spent our entire lives in rescue, and now that we are somewhere brand new, things are feeling a bit upside down. As you can imagine, this is a pretty confusing time, and I’m feeling pretty insecure at the moment. Now don’t get me wrong, I do love people but have had so many strangers in and out of my life that I wanna really get to know someone before handing over my heart. So if I seem shy, just give me a little time to warm up. I’m not the type of gal to kiss and hug on the first date, if ya know what I mean, so only gentle children for me. Other dogs and cats would be A-OK in my new home. I just want to feel comfortable knowing that the person I give my love to will give it in return and do so gently. I like cuddling on the couch and following you around the house, Oh I just love being a sidekick! I have been doing well with my crate training and would love to continue it wherever my new life takes me. I sure hope it takes me home with you!

2 years old-28lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes spay, microchip & registration, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Austyn

Catahoula Leopard Dog + Australian Shepherd Mix
2 years old
Male
42 pounds

I’m Austyn…and I must admit, I am feeling pretty down…I had this really wonderful thing, but I just lost it, and I’m really hoping I can find it again soon. It was called a home. See, I’m a super-smart boy who is very loyal affectionate, and playful. I’m housebroken, crate trained,  I love playing with other big dogs (not the little ones though!), I enjoy a good game of fetch, am great at hunting cats, and am as devoted and protective as they come. See, that’s the reason I lost that valuable thing called a home. Once I had a family of my own I decided that I loved them so much that they didn’t need anyone else in their life. So I decided not to let strangers get too close, especially when we are out on walks- see I have this thing called leash reactivity which means that I get really defensive if people or other animals get too close when I am on lead. Sometimes I ‘d decide not to let that other little furry four legged companion get his fare share of love either…so that family decided that I needed a new home. Not because I did’t love them, but because I loved them a little too much…who thought too much love could get ya in trouble huh? Anyway, I suppose it really is best. I need a home without smaller animals or children, where I can receive all the training and guidance I need to overcome my fears and learn to be better about sharing all this love. So here I am, hoping to find what I’ve lost.

Balthazar

Catahoula Leopard Dog + Pug Mix
3 years old
Male
44 pounds

I am Balthazar. Most people know the name as one of the Three Wise Men; however, I am in fact the One Wise Dog. Sadly I haven’t had much luck finding a family who appreciates my wisdom. I believe I am a wonderful judge of character, so when a stranger approaches my front door and pounds on it, I take it upon myself (and my wisdom) to let them know that they are not welcome. I suppose I could loosen up a little, learn to trust and accept new people…maybe you can be the one to help me with this? Maybe it’s time I find a person wise enough to help me through this. In turn I will share my wisdom regarding tennis-ball fetching, tail wagging, and how to properly accept a belly rub. I have great skills when it comes to crate training, playing with other dogs, and rumor has it I am even housebroken. I will need a patient and dog-savvy family without children willing to accept all of the love, devotion, and affection I have to offer. Give me a chance to bestow my wisdom upon you, and hopefully you can share some of yours with me.

3 years old-44lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes spay, microchip & registration, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

BG

Dalmatian + Pointer Mix
9 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 great with other bigger dogs, but I am not a fan of cats or small critters…I’m a chill girl who doesn’t like to be pestered, so I prefer furry friends who just want to hang out and cuddle; no running, romping, yappin or funny business.  And respectful children 12+, 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. I may be a lazy lady, but I do still like to work on my fitness, so walks around the neighborhood or strolls through nature 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; call me Queen Protector. Once you seen all the rest, come meet the best and get some of this Big Girl love.

Bola

Pit Bull Terrier
6 1/2 years old
Female
52 pounds

You wanna help me solve a mystery? This is the case of “The Love That Wasn’t There.” It seems that there is a person, much like you, who had a longing for something but they didn’t know what. Sure, they were happy and life was fine, but it didn’t have that magic, that spark. They tried new drapes, and they were nice, and made looking outside a bit more pleasant, but something still didn’t feel complete. It was as if they needed “more,” but of what they did not know. Well, I think I know just what they need! That person needs love! Just like you do! The love that only Bola can provide! I’ll hit the spot with my sweet and cuddly personality, and my loyal attentive and affectionate demeanor will surely win you over. And my excellent house manners, great crate training skills, and my knowledge of a long list of training commands is sure to impress. I’m longing for a family without young children, since those little kiddos just make me too nervous. I’m willing to share my home with other dogs, but I gotta be honest…I really do prefer the boys—no sisterly rivalry for me (and while we’re on the subject, no feline rivalry for me either)! Give me a chance and I will brighten up your life with all the love and affection that you didn’t know you were missing! Mystery solved!

And now check out Bola’s original adoption Piteo back when she was just 6 months old!
Bola’s family had a new baby and sadly Bola was not adjusting to the new addition, so she is back with us looking for a new family without tiny humans!

Brownie

Beagle + Brittany Spaniel Mix
4 years old
Male
30 pounds

Hooowwwwdy! I’m Brownie! I hear you’re lookin’ for a beagle? Are you a lover of the breed? Good, cuz even though I’m a mix I’m everything you could ever want in a Beagle! If you don’t know the breed, maybe read up first! Us beagles like to dance to the sound of our own voice, sing beautiful songs to the moon—it’s called baying, and some folks aren’t too fond of it! We have these powerful sniffers that we just must follow…wherever it takes us— just like a hound dog! Anyway, I got lots of those other common beagle traits, like being lovable and affectionate, lively, sweet, and curious. I am great with other dogs, a true hunter of cats, and a champion at the game of fetch. I have a playful and friendly disposition, but I can be stubborn and bossy too, so a home with older children is a must. I’m already crate trained and have a good start on housebreaking; I just need you to put on the finishing touches. Yup, I’ll be a lovely addition to a beagle-friendly family, that’s for sure!

Buster Keaton

Rat Terrier + Basenji Mix
3 years old
Male
11 pounds

I have taken a lot of hard knocks in my short little life. Hit the ground and bounce back up because the show must go on. I feel I would do my namesake proud. The sacrifice that you endure for what you love makes happiness so much sweeter. I want a family that will love me at the end of the day, and that through all of life’s twists and turns they know I am there for them. I might be a little rough around the edges, but some people find diamonds in the rough. I am already housebroken and my crate training is going well- I really I like to learn new things! I probably won’t learn how to live with cats, though, so that lesson might as well go out the window. I think I would get along well with respectful children 12+ that know proper pet etiquette and I love to play with other dogs. As I said, the show must go on, so how would you like a starring role in my life?

Miniature Pinscher + Chihuahua Mix
5 years old
Male

Did I hear someone say they wanted a sweet lil dog?  Well, hello! Sweet happens to be my middle name! How about a fun dog? That could be my last name!  I am a happy lil chap with all the makings of a mighty fine companion…I just need someone to be my, well, companion! I love to run and play with other dogs, I just adore people and children 6+ too, even cats and I get along well so long as they don’t mind a fun game of chase now and then! I am also crate trained, do great on leash and am very eager to please. Call me Mr. Butch Sweet Fun Dog and come on in to meet me, I’m just waiting on you!

Chance

German Shepherd + English Mastiff Mix
9 years old
Male
100 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 with other dogs at times, but when you get to be my age you just don’t put up with as much guff as you used to. I prefer that children around me should be 5+ and respectful of their elders. 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. My knees ain’t what they used to be, so 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.

Chandler

Pit Bull Terrier + Husky + German Shepherd Mix
1 year old
Male
51 pounds

Hello there, I’m Chandler. Welcome to Chandler’s Emporium of Love. I am overstocked on love, and I am passing these deals on to you! For the low introductory price of your home, your heart, and your commitment, you can take all the loving, cuddling, and friendship I have to offer home with you today! This deal won’t last long, and certain models like myself are in limited quantities… like I’m the only one! If you know another canine companion who is great with children of all ages, already crate trained, housebroken, knows basic commands, rides well in the car, loves to play fetch  and has a fun, playful personality, then I would eat my hat if I had one! But seriously folks, I am all of these amazing things, but I am also still just a puppy in a full-grown body, so there are a few things I am still trying to figure out. I love playing with well-matched dogs and am doing great here in my play group. Sharing my home with a sister dog sounds like great fun, but no jealous brothers or pesky felines for me. So come on down to Family Dogs and get to know me a bit. Tell them Chandler sent you, and you won’t be disappointed!

Chester

Anatolian Shepherd + Border Collie Mix
2 years old
Male
77 pounds

I am not a cheetah, but if you wanted to throw some Cheetos my way I would not deny your gracious offering! In fact I would probably do some tail wagging, which is much more exciting than it sounds…I’m a pretty insecure fella, and it take me time to trust new people, but I do love treats! So it’s quickest way to my heart. I like to treat folks to my own brand of reward, just as much as I like snacking! What kind of reward, you ask? Well, for starters I would like to be your #1 canine! I am loyal and protective, eager to please, very smart, and did I say protective? If I have to share the spotlight with another fur-haver, I could do that too since I get along great with other dogs and cats. Remember how much I love treats? Well, if we’re being totally honest here, I don’t like to share them. Once I think something is mine, and I value it greatly, I’m just not willing to give it up; so I do need a family without children, where all members are patient, gentle, and able to understand that I have a few quirks. I do promise to reward this new family with my vast knowledge of crate training and my excellent housebreaking skills! I got all kinds of tidbits of deliciousness to share with you, so let’s see if we can combine our goodies and get that super flavor of love!

Cracker Jack

Wirehair Fox Terrier + Miniature Schnauzer Mix
2 years old
Male
11 pounds

Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out but please avoid the crowd;
Just show some patience to Cracker Jack,
And I promise I will soon love you back.
Let me root, root, root for a place to call home,
If you pass me over it’s a shame.
For it’s one, two, three strikes you’re out,
So put your heart into the game!
Oh man, what a little treat I am. Fun and friendly and so affectionate, but don’t move too fast! I may be wagging my tail and singing your praises, but it don’t always mean I trust ya. I need a little time to really get to know you before you can expect to be hands on. That means a low-traffic home without children is a must. I do like to live an active lifestyle and love having a good time, so other dogs to play with and boss around would be great fun, just don’t expect me to share my peanuts or popcorn with them! If there are cats around I’ll surely have them running the bases, so best I have a kitty free home. Let me root, root, root for a place to call home. If you pass me over it’s a shame!

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!

For those of you unfamiliar with the Derby, here is a quick recap: I am Derby and I have been looking for a forever home ever since I was picked up off the streets. Entering into a system of unfamiliarity and an ambiguous future, I decided to create my own destiny. After arriving here at Family Dogs, I founded the Love Derby to help me find love in no short order! It’s a race to my heart, and you’re in first place! Bold, I know, but I can’t wait around here forever! A couple of obstacles to look out for while you are out on the course are my overprotective nature, my aversion to cats, my need to find a home with respectful children 12+, and my bossy attitude with other dogs, regardless of their size. But once you cross the finish line and reach the winner’s circle of my heart, you’ll be rewarded with my excellent personality, exceptional crate training and housebreaking skills, prize-worthy loyalty, and blue-ribbon cuddle powers! So pick up the pace cuz if you win the Love Derby you’ll get to love Derby!

Dexter

Collie + Labrador Retriever Mix
4 1/2 years old
Male
58 pounds

Welcome to my laboratory! I am conducting a little experiment; I want to see how long it will take to cultivate my new forever family.  Very selective efforts are being made to find suitable lab partners. Only the most patient and gentle people are allowed to observe my work, which means I’m not looking for any assistance from rowdy young children. I do have plenty of energy to burn, so I don’t want to spend all my time in a lab coat- I want to get out and have a good time, I just need lots of reassurance that everything is gonna be ok. I don’t mind having other dogs around; I find that they can be very useful in providing certain materials that may otherwise be hard to come by, like nonstop games of chase and wrestling. I treat cats in the same manner, but unfortunately they don’t seem to enjoy it as much as I do so I do need a cat free home. It should come as no surprise that I have the intellect to learn all kinds of stuff, so I’m always looking to continue my studies but rest assured I am already housebroken and know my basic commands. For extra-super-top-secret experiments I prefer to retire to my crate for the quiet time and extra concentration it affords, plus having a safe place really helps ease my stress if I’m feeling anxious. If the science of canine companionship 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.

Eddie

Black Labrador Retriever Mix
9 years old
Male
54 pounds

Eddie! Eddie! Eddie! Eddie! That’s what the masses chant when I walk by. Yeah, I am a hero of sorts. I hold the Guinness World Record for the best canine companion. Now don’t you worry…I’m not expecting any sort of award, just the reward of a forever family that I can bestow my companionship upon. I’m an energetic, happy, social, fun, and adventurous dude who’s mature but up for anything. I’m even crate trained already, good with children and other dogs. Now I just need a new, cat-free family ready for a new pooch. Should be easy for me to find…I mean, holding that record and all…

TRUST
a : assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something.
b : one in which confidence is placed.
Goodness, this is a tough word for me. I mean, I understand the definition, I just can’t quite execute it. I’d love to find someone I can trust…maybe someone like you? I could be the furry companion that you cherish, the one that will always be by your side. Truthfulness and loyalty are the qualities I possess: I don’t hesitate to tell you how I feel, and once I find someone I can rely on, I’ll be their best friend for life. If we are being open and honest with each other, and I’d like us to be, then I will tell you I can be a bit touchy when it comes to grabby hands. I don’t like surprises or being jostled around, so respectful children 12+ are more my speed, which I prefer to keep slow and steady with occasional walks around the neighborhood… I am, shall we say, a refined female. I am house trained and crate trained, I get along with other dogs well but am not open to the idea of living with cats. So what do you think? Can you help me understand the meaning of Trust?

Rat Terrier + Chihuahua Mix
4 years old
Male

Ok, so who out there actually thinks being a Trekkie is cooler than being a Star Wars fan? That’s right, no one. I still remember the first time I saw Empire Strikes Back—what a cinematic masterpiece! I mean, George Lucas is a total genius! Anyway, let’s talk more about me…I’m a sweet and gentle fella, playful too, but not too bold. I am a fast learner, already crate trained and catching on to some basic words like ‘sit.’ I will need continued training though, I’m just a little street dog who’s never had the structure, guidance, or love I deserve. I do love people very much and get along great with other dogs and cats, too. How about you let me join your family, maybe we can spend our first night curled up in bed watching the Star Wars trilogy?

Grandma Callie & Grandpa Scrappy

Pit Bull Terrier
10 years old
Female & Male
67 & 65 pounds

They say a dog gives unconditional love…Sure, we can do that. After all, we’ve got plenty of practice…not only loving people, but loving each other for 10 whole years! In our golden age we sure have blossomed into well-balanced, easygoing companions. Other dogs are fine by us; just don’t expect us to share our love with cats. If you’re a family with gentle and respectful children, we’re all for it, so long as they are old enough to understand how to treat their elders with kindness. We’ve taken nicely to crate training, walk nicely on leash, and we’re even housetrained. We’ll love taking easy strolls around the block, or lounging in the backyard while you garden…nothing too wild and crazy, just some quality time with the ones we love. How’s that for unconditional? Well, I suppose we do have just one condition…you must love us back.

Jojo

Chihuahua + Toy Fox Terrier Mix
8 years old
Male
12 pounds

Hi! I am Jojo! Wake me up before you go-go! Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo. Cuz that’s a no-no! Just kidding, except for the part about my name. You know how Jojos go so well with chicken strips? Well, that’s what I am looking for…the chicken strip that will go perfectly with this Jojo! It’ll have to be a special recipe, since I am a pretty special lil potato. I’m longing for an understanding, loving, and patient person who will help me become the best dog I can possibly be. I have a long road ahead of me, but I will try my best. With consistency and positive reinforcement I will be on my way to learning to trust again in no time. I get along with other dogs very well, and cats don’t bother me, but I will need an adult-only home—grabby hands and the youthful energy of children is just too much for me. I do love to get gentle scratches behind the ear and snuggle in the blankets, and I will stick by your side like glue…just give me a little time to trust you. I also love to play with my toys, I enjoy going for brisk walks around the neighborhood, and my crate training is top-notch! So what do you say? Wanna be my chicken strip?

Labrador Retriever + Chow Chow Mix

Female

If I had a mirror and I looked into it, do you know what I would see?  I would see a glorious, happy girl smiling back at me.  I am a true treasure with a heart of gold and a personality like sunshine.  I have a great big smile that will warm your heart on even the loneliest days.  I am enjoying all of my doggy friends here, but I’m not look to befriend any kitty cats. I am working real hard on minding my manners and have mastered many of them- like crate training, house training and basic commands. I am people focused and eager to please, so continued training with me will be a cinch as long as you are patient and gentle with me.  I lack a little in the self-confidence department, so a home with calm children 10+ who understand how to respect my boundaries will be best. Look in the mirror, now what do you see? The future human who’ll love me!

“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”—William Shakespeare
I often wonder what life will look like for me in the future. It sure has been topsy-turvy thus far, and I would like a little more stability and structure than I have been privy to as of late. For me, an active and loving family with children 8+ to play with and lots of adventuring sounds like paradise! I can get a little too exuberant with cats, and I try to keep my natural herding instincts toned down a couple notches, but my youthful vigor can get the best of me. I get along great with other dogs and can share the spotlight of love if need be. My crate training is on point, and my house manners are top notch. If I’m being honest here, and I am, I should tell you that my leash manners leave a lot to be desired…so it’s a darn good thing that I am so stinking smart and eager to please because I am going to soak up all that training you’re going to give me like a sponge! Gosh, my furture is looking pretty bright already!

Moose

Italian Greyhound Mix
4 years old
Male
8 pounds

I’m searching high and low for a lap to call my own…one that’s not too hard and not too soft…not too big and not too small….a lap that I can curl right up in and take a little nap. I love to be held, nothing makes me happier…and goodness, I just love a good lap to sit in! I could really use a patient person to teach me what a warm and loving place the world can be. A family with other dogs, cats, or gentle children 5+ will do! A training class or two would hurt either, it would really help boost my self-esteem, but hey, nobody’s perfect! Well, I might be perfect if you put in some effort! So how about a truce? You adopt this little Moose and he’ll love you forever!

So I hear you’re looking for a new best friend? Someone who is a real sweet heart…well, I may be just who you’re looking for! I am O-so affectionate and O-so loving. If you’re looking for someone to accompany you on your daily walk or jog, a buddy to tag along on your weekend hikes, or a pal to take to the beach, I’d be more than happy to join since I am O-so playful and enjoy a good time. How about a friend for your other dog? I am O-so lovable and affectionate, I’ll make a wonderful companion for your other dog or respectful older children, but I am not O-so willing to share my home with cats. Some people say I’m O-so quirky; I had a really rough puppy-hood that left me with a neurological condition called epilepsy , but don’t worry, aside from an occasional love obsession with going after my tail (I’m pretty sure its playing hard to get) you’d never even notice! I’m keeping my crate O-so clean and tidy, such a great start to all the other awesome stuff you can teach me…since I am O-so smart. So how about it… don’t I sound O-so right?

Sabrina

Toy Poodle
4 years old
Female

Well, I am past my teenage years, but I can still be a little witchy. I have had a rough life so far, and really I don’t like to talk about it. Let’s just say It has left me with isomer insecurities when meeting new people. So I will need a very calm, patient, and understanding person to work a little ‘magic’ on me. I know I would do best in an adult-only home without a lot of strangers coming and going. If you think you see potential inside of me, please don’t be discouraged if it’s not the fireworks you imagined when we meet. I am still trying to perfect my firework spell. I do hit it off with other dogs well though, and I don’t mind living with cats. Crate training here has been fantastic and it gives me a quiet place to study my grimoire. True love is something that can’t be replicated even with magic, because it is something that exists only in the heart. But together maybe we can conjure up something special?

It is true. I have fallen like an Olympic god down to the land of mortals. Oh, how the mighty have fallen! To the East and to the West I see only emptiness. Woe, o, woe is me. Too dramatic? The world is asunder around me and you suggest this is dramatic frivolity? Can you not see this poor, desperate, adorable, and well-mannered lap-warmer has love to share with you? I’m just a gentle and affectionate little champion who enjoys other dogs and cats, and lives best with respectful children 8+. Are there no words that might prompt you to assist with my future aspirations of becoming a mighty companion to you and yours? Is it too much to think that I may be the flame to light your darkness? That I may impress you with my crate training? That I have the cold, wet nose to quench your burning yearning for love? I would tear down the walls of the Colosseum to secure your happiness—all I ask is that you walk through the door and inquire about mine.

Sandy

Shar Pei
5 years old
Female
44 pounds

I am a demure lass, not too bold; more like sensitive and excellent at playing hard to get. Sure, I may be timid, but I do have some very lovely traits: sweet, smart, playful, loyal, full of love. I am still a young girl, so continued training and socializing will surely be required. Good news is, I am already crate trained, rumored to be housebroken, and I’m learning to walk on leash. Gentle older children to respectfully love me, dogs to play with, and cats to torment will all make my new home a more interesting place (OK, maybe not the cats). All the love you need can be found right here in me, Sandy!

Sissy

Jack Russell Terrier
9 years old
Female

I am a little bit of spice and everything nice. All you could possibly want in a little lover of a dog! Even though I haven’t had the best upbringing, I’ve never let that ruin who I was on the inside. I still find happiness being around people, even if I can be a little unsure sometimes. Respectful children 8+ would be wonderful to have in my life, and I get along great with the other dogs. I may be up in years, but my JRT nature holds strong: no kitty cats for me. I am already housebroken, but my bladder ain’t what it used to be so I do need to be let out frequently and have been shown the ropes to this crate training thing—it’s pretty much a no-brainer. All this perfection in an easy-to-carry package? What more could you want!?!?

Male

Life’s a beach, so why not let the sparks fly! I’m all revved up and ready to go, I am a lil Sparky plug, and I am firing on all cylinders to give you some love! Feisty and full of fun, just looking for some fine tuning. A Shiba mix no doubt, I’ll need a person familiar with our intelligent, lively, and brave nature! I’m loving and loyal, very people focused, super affectionate and I adore attention. I do not, however, adore cats or sharing my goodies—so keep your paws outta my food bowl, ok?! That also means a home with no children for me. I do love to romp and rough house with other dogs and won’t mind sharing my home with a well-matched canine companion. I may have attitude to spare and energy to burn, but I also have some excellent house manners, am already crate trained, ride well in the car ,and know my basic commands. So come on, let me show you what it feels like to be loved!

Well, I am not as quick as I used to be, but I still got plenty of get-up-and-go! I don’t say I’m slowing down, I just brake a little more before the turns! My hips just aren’t what they used to be, but I still got a race to win! First prize is your heart, and no one is going to take you away from me! It’s a mad dash for love, and I have all the winning features of a first-place dog! I get along great with other dogs, I get along great with cats, and I am doing great with my crate training! I am oh so friendly and people focused, pretty happy-go-lucky until you start messing with my food bowl; that’s when things get serious. So I do need a family without children, where all members are able to understand that I will not share. Now don’t get caught with your shifter in the wrong gear, get down here and meet me in the winner’s circle!

Walker

Yellow Labrador Retriever + Great Pyrenees Mix
8 years old
Male
71 pounds

These paws were made for walking, and that’s just what I’ll do, one of these days this boy is gonna walk right next to you! I would love to take easy strolls by your side, or just lounge around on the couch by your side, or hang out in the backyard by your side…I think you get my drift: you’ll never get too far without your Walker! I get along with other dogs, but if you got cats they better run when they see me coming! I make no apologies; I just can’t stand those critters. Dog-savvy kids 10+ will be best for me because I take a little time to trust new people and grabby hands are no match for me. As far as my crate training, I have that down. Housemanners, too; got those covered. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty more I want to learn, so I got the time to dedicate to learning all you want to teach me if you are game! Sound like a pretty good deal? Then come on and walk with me!
