Found on the Ernie Maxwell Trail: an adult neutered male German shepherd with no chip, collar or tag. Well groomed.
Yep, I’m Scrappy Doo. And it’s a good thing because a human abandoned me in the ARF yard one chilly day. So I had to learn really fast how to be a scrapper. I am a 1-year-old male Papillion/long-haired Chihuahua-mix weighing in at only 8 pounds. That doesn’t stop me from playing with my favorite friend at the ARF house, Harley Dog, who by the way weighs in at 82.
We play tug-of-war with the rope, which means I get drug around the room. But I won’t let go. Harley always shares his food bowl with me, and doesn’t even mind when I climb on his back for a ride. Harley was found with eye and head injuries, and no one ever called for him. So he is just like me, abandoned but happy that we are at ARF. Harley absolutely loves the feline crowd, but Scrappy Doo wants nothing to do with them.
Dozer is a young black Lab-mix looking for a forever human to throw the ball, throw the ball and then throw the ball again. You get it. And if you won’t, he will play catch all by himself. He has energy to spare, loves water, and will hike, walk and run. He’s good with other dogs, as long as they will play with him. He’s not even curious about the feline crowd.
Harley is quite the opposite. Sharing the couch with you and your remote is his fave. He loves to walk, just not long distance, has to have a yard to bury his bones, and absolutely would love to live with the felines rather than the canines. Chasing the ball is one of his favorite things to do, and then it will be time for a nap. The magic words for this 5-year-old boy are, “Want to go for a ride in the car or truck?”
And this is Chelsea. She is looking for a quiet home with lots of love.
