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.

  • Rat Terrier

Momma dog was rescued from the pound and found out she was pregnant and had 8 puppies about a month later. She has been the perfect mom to all of the puppies. She is about 2 years old- possibly a rat terrier mix. She weighs 11 pounds and has been spayed now. She is house trained and does well with all the dogs at her foster home. She would love to have a lap to cuddle on- she loves all people and enjoyed everyone that stopped to visit her pups. A fenced yard of course is best for her.

  • Basset Hound
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Toney is a very sweet ten year-old Basset Hound. He is neutered and up-to-date on shots. He recently had his teeth cleaned. He is a very affectionate boy. When you walk over to him he rolls over so he can get belly rubs. He does well with going up steps but if there are more than 5 steps he will not come down on his own. He loves to follow behind as you mow lawn. He is a silly boy that will grab a toy and run around like a bucking bronco. He is also a little thief that will take things and bring them to his dog bed. Toney loves to go for walks. He pulls a bit on the leash but we are working on that. The perfect home for Toney is that he would be the only dog in a fenced yard. He would love to be with an older couple that is around a lot.
