All tails are wagging and paws are up for Shasta and Chloe who finally were reunited with their humans. As well as the Pomeranian in Garner Valley. Sugar, one of the “Girl Scout Kitties” is now in his furever home with a new name of Forest!

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!

And Lulu is back! A young Lab/shepherd mix, she is good on the leash, learns commands quickly, and likes the canine crowd. Lulu prefers not to share her kingdom with felines. She was abandoned by her owner and is certain that another energetic, Frisbee throwing family will walk thru our doors and say “Let’s go home, Lulu.”

Reily’s bags are packed, bones included, and she is ready to go. A true hiker’s dream, Reily has great energy on the trail, and on a leash. Hide and seek is her favorite game whether it’s a rock or her favorite toy. Reily’s focus comes naturally, and everything else she learns is just gravy. In the bowl, that is.
