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.

Lennon is a 10 year old Chihuahua mix that is up to date with shots and working on teeth cleaning. He loved my 6 year old and does well with dogs and cats in home. He loves to sit and chill on the couch and sleep with you! He does not need a fenced yard as he goes out and potty and comes back in but does need a sweater on most days! He is not kenneled during the day as he does not like it at all. If you want a couch potato for a dog he is your man!

Max is a 9 month old, neutered Chihuahua, and weighs just under 6 pounds. He is very good about going into his kennel at night time and during the day when I have to leave. He is also improving in the area of house training, as I am trying to learn his signal for needing to go outside to potty. He gets along well with my two dogs (a Lab and a Chihuahua Mix) and other dogs he has met in the neighborhood. Max is still a puppy, so he has plenty of energy - he loves to wrestle and chase my little dog, and I think he would do great in a home with another dog. He likes to go for walks but seems to be afraid of really loud trucks and lawn mowers. He loves being outside where he can romp in the yard, and he is a very good little retriever of a small ball - a FENCED YARD IS A MUST! Max is a little shy when first meeting new people, and he does best if you let him come to you on his own accord, instead of trying to pet him or pick him up right away. Because of this, we would not recommend that he go to a home with young children under 6-8 years of age. Initially, he seems to be a little more uncertain of guys than gals. Max has a really sweet disposition and is a lot of fun to have around, he just needs to get to know you in his time, and then he will become your friend forever!

  • Boston Terrier

Snoopy is a 1-2 year old Boston terrier mix that is up to date on shots and neutered. He is so happy to have any attention he can get! He does well with my cats, and dogs and child (6). He is about 30 Lbs and is a great dog to play with although he is learning about toys. He is afraid of hands and feet so you need to move easy with him! He is learning how to live in a home but is very easy going! He would need a person that wants to work on basic skills and keep showing him how to be a dog. He loves everyone and everything! NEEDS A FENCED IN YARD!
