Labrador Retriever + Pit Bull Terrier + German Shepherd Mix
3 years old
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.

Dalmatian + Pointer Mix
8 years old
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.

Scottish Terrier Mix
6 years old
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!
6 years old-21lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and includes; microchip, neuter, reduced cost Training Class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, Toy & Treat packet.

Terrier + Shih Tzu Mix
3 years old
♫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!♫
3 years old-20lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes; microchip, neuter, reduced cost training class, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & Treat packet.
3 years old
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!

Chihuahua + Miniature Poodle Mix
7 years old
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.
German Shepherd + Akita Mix
8 years old
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.
8 yrs-102lbs. My adoption fee is $120 and includes: microchip, neuter, reduced cost training class, 1 month pet health insurance, free veterinary exam , leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet
Chihuahua + Basenji Mix
3 years old
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.
3 years old-10lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes: neuter, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, reduced-cost training class, free vet exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.
Australian Kelpie + German Shepherd Mix
1 year old
Don’t you want to be hangin’ with Mr. Cooper? I thought so! What are you waiting for? We can play some t-ball, learn positive life lessons, and exchange words of encouragement. I know I could use some of those lessons and words—I am still young and no one has invested in my future yet. I have herding blood in my veins so I can be a little bossy at times. That is hard for some people to understand. I get along with the other dogs here just great! And as long as you have a cat who knows the doggy drill, I could totally live with one. I am house trained and my crate training is coming along nicely. I would really be best in a home with children 12+ that can see when I’m getting over stimulated, before I start to get nippy. Smart, energetic, and sympathetically suave? Sounds great? Let’s start hangin’!
1 year old-53lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes: microchip, neuter, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.
Carolina Dog Mix
3 years old
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!
3 years old-49lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes: spay, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, reduced-cost training class, free vet exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.
Longhair Chihuahua+ Pomeranian Mix
4 years old
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.
4 years old-8lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes: microchip, neuter, reduced cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.
Chocolate Labrador Retriever + German Shepherd + Great Dane Mix
1 year old
Listen up, recruits! I just got the orders from the top brass. We must hold our position until we get the love reinforcements we need. This is going to be one heck of a fight, but when you believe in something as pure as love and freedom, you dig deep inside and see it through till the end. I won’t give up on you and I expect the same, soldier! I may be a little weary from my long, hard battle trying to locate and secure love, so if I am a little shell-shocked when we first meet, please excuse my uneasiness. I got out of puppy boot camp and thrown straight onto the front lines. I did one tour and thought I had secured love, but it was a fleeting victory and I was called back up to fight the good fight. While trying to defeat that which would keep love from me, I am also fighting the eternal battle against cats. As you know, the Cat vs. Dog wars have been going on since the dawn of time, and I am not laying down arms anytime soon! One thing I got out of puppy boot camp was house training and that made it really easy for my crate training to take effect. Any children that want to join the cause will have to meet the 10+ age requirement and be fit for duty. Let’s move, team! This world ain’t gonna love itself!
1 year old-90lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes: microchip, neuter, reduced-cost training class, 1 month pet health insurance, free veterinary exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.
Pit Bull Terrier
2 years old
You probably want to find a companion that is sweet, sensitive, loving and kind. Will listen to you with soft caring eyes, and be there for you when you need comfort. Well, today is your lucky day. I’m Fay, and I might be just who you are looking for! All I have ever wanted since I was a little girl was a family to call my very own. Do you think I could be the dog for you? I adore the company of respectful children and like to play with other dogs, just don’t ask me to share my toys ok? I like to fetch the ball and have a good time, but nothing makes me happier than a good cuddle session. My philosophy in life is “why rush?” I see people zipping around missing out on all kinds of happiness because they are too busy. I like to take things easy and really soak in the good stuff. One thing that I don’t agree with though is cats, I am sorry but I can’t stand them. I do agree with proper crate maintenance though, and I keep my crate spotless. Rumor has it, I’m even housebroken! So come in and meet me, let Fay make this your lucky day.

German Shepherd + Australian Cattle Dog Mix
3 years old
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!
3 years old-81lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes: neuter, microchip, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.
Beagle + Australian Cattle Dog Mix
18 months old
Yes, yes, as ridiculous as it seems, this cute kid is in search of love and a family of my own. Speaking of love, what a little lover I am! I am a sweet little dude, but heavy handling will award you a bit of attitude! There is a lot of puppy in me still, and I am still feeling my way around. Some training classes will go a long way in helping me become the bestest boy I can be. A family with other dogs would be great, cats are OK too, but if there are children in the family I ask that they be old enough to understand how to treat me with respect, and know when I am feeling nervous or threatened! I don’t plan on hanging out here long, so how’s about you hurry right in to meet me?
18 months old-26lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes: microchip, neuter, reduced cost-training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.
6 years old
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!
6 years old-14lbs. My adoption fee is $140 and includes: neuter, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, reduced-cost training class, free vet exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.
Chihuahua + Boston Terrier Mix
1 year old
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!

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!
7 years old-72lbs. My adoption fee is $120 and includes: spay, microchip, reduced-cost training class, 1 month pet health insurance, free veterinary exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.
Chihuahua + Jack Russell Terrier Mix
1 year old
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.
1 year old-9lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes: spay, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, reduced-cost training class, free vet exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.
Pit Bull Terrier + Bull Terrier Mix
2 years old
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!
2 years old-52lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes: microchip, neuter, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.
Chihuahua + Miniature Pinscher Mix
3 years old
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?
3 years old-14lbs. 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.
Labrador Retriever + Shar Pei Mix
5 years old
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!
5 years old-50lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and includes: microchip, neuter, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.
Beagle + Dachshund Mix
2 1/2 years old
“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!
2 ½ years old-20lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes: microchip, neuter, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.
Sheltie + Shepherd Mix
4 years old
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.

Jack Russell Terrier + Dachshund Mix
1 year old
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!
1 year old-12lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes: neuter, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, reduced-cost training class, free vet exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.
Schipperke + Shiba Inu Mix
4 year old
They say that the best things come in small packages, right? Well, just think of all the bestness that must be inside a Tiny package! That’s right! I am full to the brim with love and snuggles and kisses and smiles and all the happy times that you are missing out on because of your lack of canine companionship. I am a dog of action! I want my new family to be all kinds of athletic and adventurous. I hate sitting down and I hate being bored! I like to go, go, go! I love playing with other dogs, and I can even play respectfully with cats! Kids 10+ would be great to romp around with, and I can distract them from those video game machines! I’ll admit it, I do have a short attention span and focus better with treats if you want me to learn something. I have been learning my crate training pretty darn well and can’t wait to see all the things you want to show me. Nights are getting colder and days are growing shorter, so how about you get all kinds of cuddly with me! Just open up a Tiny spot in your heart and I’m all yours.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.
