  • Pug, Beagle
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Casey is a 3 year old - neutered male pug cross (maybe part beagle). He is black with white on his chest and weighs about 28 pounds. He has been a very good dog so far as we are still getting to know him. Crate trained and has had no accidents in the house thus far. He has been good with all of the other dogs in his foster home. He is very friendly and would love to have a lap to lay and cuddle on. He would to have a home with toys so he could learn to play with them. His favorite is a kong filled with peanut butter. He loves to be outside to explore so a fenced yard would be required. Would make a good running partner for someone.

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.
