Paws up to Winifred, our Weimaraner puppy, who gave everyone who walked in the door those big puppy eyes, and made contact with her forever family.

We have pictures at ARF of Bruno, a chocolate American Staffordshire, who needs to be rehomed as his owner is ill.

Do you know what love is? To Sweetpea, the ARF Diva, it’s a soft caress, a warm blanket, a
window seat to the world, and, oh, yes, eyes only for her. Always generous with her love for humans, this adult female maine coon-mix tolerates the canine crowd, but prefers to be the only feline. Well, that’s a true Diva. Can you live without her?

So you had a bad day? Keep that football out, even after Super Bowl. Come home to Missy, a young Aussie mix and you won’t remember the “ruff” day at the office. Always ready for a game of catch, whether it’s the football, Frisbee, or her favorite toy. Prefer the walk? She’s ready. Great on the leash, good with all canines, and a little inquisitive about the feline crowd. This smart girl is quick to learn tricks, and commands. Potty training? Done. Stay? Done. Release? Done. Down? Well, we’re still working on that. If you have the energy, she will match it. When the day is done, well, I guess she might just share the remote and the couch!
