  • Basset Hound
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Brix is a nine year-old basset hound that is just a sweetheart. He is up-to-date on shots and is scheduled to be neutered on June 29th. He is very active for his age. He loves to go on walks with his brother. He walks well on a harness and rides quite well in a car. Brix wants to be where you are and will follow you around. FENCED YARD REQUIRED since his keen smell can get him in trouble wandering off.

Ivy is a mixed-breed, spayed female approximately 13 years old. She is very affectionate with people and likes to play fetch and go for walks. I had her at the lake for the first time and she likes to play in the water. She hasn’t gone deep enough to actually swim, but frolics where she can touch. She has had some training with Don Sullivan’s “Perfect Dog” system. She walks well on a leash and has learned basic commands like sit, shake, down, back up and stay. Ivy is great with people, both adults and children. She does show aggression towards other dogs, however, we have been working with her on that as well as “no barking”. She is starting to warm up to strange dogs better than she used to. It takes careful and controlled/supervised introductions. She seems to do better with mid-sized to large dogs as opposed to small dogs. Once she is comfortable with another dog, she likes to run and play. She would need to have a fenced yard (minimum 5ft fence), and if there are other dogs in the house, they would need to get to know each other well before being left alone together. She has never been around cats or any other animals, and it wouldn’t be recommended. She is not able to go to the Petco dog shows yet as there are too many “stranger” dogs for her, and it becomes too stressful. If you would like to meet Ivy, please leave a message on the dog line and we will return your call to schedule an appointment. She is a great dog with a lot of love to offer, in need of a forever home. She had a dental May 2014.

Joey is approximately a 3 year old black lab pit cross. He is totally house and crate trained. This is a dog that wants to be your best friend. For the most part a very quiet dog. He likes to sit outside and just look around. He plays well with my 2 young labs. He would love to have a home where he could have some toys to play with. He is a nice sized very loving dog and would be an awesome addition to a family. A fenced yard is best for him since he enjoys being outside so much.

  • Border Collie

Milo is about a 6 year old Border collie mix about 33 pounds. He is learning what is like to be in a home and get love! He LOVES to be cuddled and will take all the attention you can get. He needs to be neutered and is set for that June 19th. He does well with cats and a 5 year old as well as dogs in the home but needs to make sure he is not the boss. HE WILL NEED A FENCED YARD AS HE DOES want to chase cars. He is a good listener and very polite in the home! He would be great for a person that wants a love bug and a walking companion!

 . Toney .
  • Basset Hound
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Toney is a ten year-old red and white basset hound that is neutered and up-to-date on shots. He is a very sweet boy that loves to be near you and frequently rolls on his back to ask for a belly rub. He loves to lie around inside on the couch or outside in the grass. He struggles a bit with stairs as he is getting older. Surprising with his age he does love to chase his brother Brix around the yard. He does love to go for walks and doesn’t pull much with a harness. FENCED YARD REQUIRED for basset hounds tend to wander off due to their keen noses. Toney can be a bit protective of his brother.
