Gandalf

5/17/2017
Age: Adult Male

This guy adopted us about 4 years ago. I found him in our front yard meowing piteously.

He is very friendly, adapts well to other animals and people, loves affection and is quite laid back. He has been primarily an outside cat with us but he was an indoor kitty for 2 months once and did very well. Up to date on vaccinations. Neutered.

Jada is a ball of energy. She is goofy and loving. Her sister (Baby) is her best friend and they do everything together. We are hoping for both to be adopted together. They are kenneled together at night and are alone together all day. Jada is a jumper so a home with a 8 foot fence or a runner is preferable for her. Jada is 6 years old and was adopted from a shelter my husband volunteered at. We hate to surrender her but due to PCS and a soon to be newborn baby we have no other choice. Spayed. Up to date on vaccinations.

He is doing much better after a few days of TLC. He is tiny, but has a BIG personality. He loves to run & play, & he has so much energy. He also just likes to be with you. He’s VERY talkative!

He has gotten along well with our cats and another dog. Neutered.

Chewy

6/13/2017
Age: Young Male
Breed: Miniature Australian Shepherd
Chewy is amazing with his pack, but trusts no one else. He loves to play fetch, run, play in water, go on walks and cuddle at night. He bit and we had to quarantine him in Utah, with months of training to help us. We must surrender him as we moved across country with him in hopes that he would adjust. We are living with a family with small children and pets and he has already tried to attack them all through a muzzle. I believe with the right help he can be a safe dog. Please help me save him.

Age: Adult Male
Breed: Mix Breed
Jack is a medium-sized dog that we can not keep in our home anymore. Our family loves him so much but we just cant handle him anymore. He is a very loving dog to owners but not good with other dogs. He also has a problem with digging under our fences but we are sure its just us not giving him exercise. He is about 4 years old, black and white, with light brown eyes. His behavior is not the best but we would hate to see him just go and die in a kill shelter.
