You have to meet this little girl- she weighed 5.9 pounds at last vet visit. She can also be very cuddly. Loves to be outside and will go outside on her own when I have the patio door open into my fenced back yard. Loves to explore. Would love to have a FENCED YARD.

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 4 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 REQUIRED for him since he enjoys being outside so much.

  • Rat Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
Momma dog is roughly a 3-year-old spayed rat terrier mix. She has the sweetest personality! She is totally house trained and crate trained. She can be very playful, she still loves her puppies and when she is running and chasing around with them it is hard to tell who is who. A FENCED YARD is required for her. She has not played with my dogs the way she plays with her pups. Loves stuffed toys to throw around and run around with. She is great with everyone with her size maybe older kids best - she only weighs 11 pounds.

  • Shih Tzu, Poodle
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Rylie is about 8 year old Shih Tzu poodle cross. He is about 13 pounds and up to date on all shots and just had his teeth cleaned! He may have some allergies but we are looking into it as he came with fleas and poor skin condition-he is currently doing well on over the counter meds and will need his ears cleaned on a regular basis at home. He has cataracts in both eyes and cannot see well but does great at getting around. He uses his nose to find things in the room and I am sure he can see light and dark. He has trouble with steps at first but once knows the layout does very well. He does very well on a leash and is doing wonderful potty training! He lives with a cat, other dogs and a 6 year old and does well but does not like to be startled. He loves snuggles and would be great in a home that would like to be with him during the day. Riley is a very funny boy and loves to play and snuggle although he is not needy! He will need to be on a leash or a fenced yard as he cannot see his boundaries-but does out and does his business and barks to come in! He does OK in the kennel but does not prefer it. He does very well in the car. Riley is very easy to have at the home and would be a great companion pet. If you want to meet this great guy call the Adopt-A-Pet line or visit the website for application and find our Adoption days at Petco!

  • Rat Terrier

This is little Ty. He is a little go getter- can be very busy and a chewer- so have to watch if he gets sticks because he also trys to eat the stick. So smart about which crate is his and will go in on his own. He loves to play but will also cuddle. He weighed 7 pounds on his last vet visit. Would love to have a FENCED YARD.

  • Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Walter is a 4 year old Australian Cattle Dog/Heeler mix. He weighs about 35 pounds, is neutered, and house trained. He is also kennel trained, and very good about going into the kennel when I have to leave and at bedtime. Walter is a very alert dog who always seems to be aware of what's going on around him - whether it's a squirrel running along the fence or just watching people come and go! He enjoys running and romping with other dogs, big and small, and likes to be outside, so a fenced yard is a must. He gets along well with our two dogs (a Lab and a Chihuahua), loves to wrestle with the little one, and has been fine meeting other dogs in the neighborhood. Walter is very friendly, but for some reason does not do well with young children, so if he goes to a home with children, they will need to be 10 years or older. He has not been around cats, so we are not sure how he would do in that situation. Walter is a very energetic dog, and if you read up on this breed, which I would encourage you to do, you will find that they need frequent mental and physical stimulation. To help in these areas, we would like to see Walter go to a home with another dog that likes to play. He would probably do well in agility training, or as a running companion too! He also rides very well in the car and loves to go on walks. Walter is very attentive, smart, and seems eager to learn! He already knows several commands - sit, stay, come, shake, and roll over (even though he doesn't like doing this one)! Walter would be a great addition to an active family! FENCED YARD REQUIRED.
