Boo! Now you see me; now you don’t. What a week it’s been with Boo, the Chiweenie and his tricks. He’s safe and at home now. Kona, and Titan have been reunited once again with their human. Looks like Amadeus, the German shepherd wagged his tail right into the hearts of his new family. Paws up to you.

Bentley is a young, male American Staffordshire. He is a fan of playtime, belly rubs and treats, too, of course. Good with other dogs and humans. Bentley has learned basic commands.

And Lulu is back! A young lab/shep 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 hikers 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.

Mrs. Magu
Mrs. Magu is a beautiful 3-year old. She loves kids and is okay with other cats and dogs. Her family moved and could not take her with them, leaving her wondering why she was left behind. She so misses having a home and being part of someone’s life. It would be her distinct pleasure to be part of yours. She doesn’t think that’s asking too much in return for all the love she has to give.
