Olly is a people loving, very intelligent, easily trained affectionate dog. He loves to retrieve balls and is treat motivated to do anything! He loves mozzarella cheese and is eager to please at the sight of a cheese stick. He is a very laid back dog if exercised in the morning and evening, usually an hour or so of vigorous running or swimming calms him to a lazy state most of the day, even as a teenager! He has been doing great socializing with other dogs which I've put alot of time and patience into as he was fearful at first visit. He is fully trained to go on command by saying "go pee" or "go poo." He sleeps all night in crate but prefers to be at your feet during the day with a kong or chew toy. Olly is an awesome dog who needs a forever home with someone who has time to exercise and give him love.

She's got a great personality, loves affection and likes to play.  Will play with dogs her size if they are willing to play.   She seems very good with potty training (goes outside) and very active.

Sleeps in a crate at night.  She does bark at some people she meets but just depends.

I have been working with her barking by using a spray bottle which she is responding to very well.

I think an active senior who is looking for a companion, she would be a wonderful dog and just needs someone to work with her for training.  She's been pounced around during her first six months so she's looking for a good stable home.

Minnie is a mellow 5 year old dog that loves to lay on peoples laps and sleep.  She will kiss you a lot.  She is good with people and if introduced to cats inside the house it  should be slowly so she knows they belong there.  If she sees a cat of the fence in the backyard she gets excited because someone is on her property.  Minnie would be best in a home as a only dog because I don't think she likes dogs her size.  She seems fine with small dogs but again should be introduced slowly being a new dog.  She is very loving around my 6 year old daughter.  Minnie will not go to the bathroom in the house and will hold it until she is let outside.  She is a good dog and listens for outside sounds during the night, if different she will let you know by letting out a bark so you can look out the window.  She is used to sleeping on actual beds and the dog bed and sleeping inside all her life.  She is spayed and never had puppies and up to date on rabies.  PLEASE HELP REHOME HER TO A LOVING FAMILY.

He is very curious and is sometimes very playful. He seems to think he is a lapdog as whenever I sit down he plops right down into my lap. However, he is very attentive and seems to really want to listen when spoken to. He can respond to basic commands such as sit, leave it, stay, down, come here and leave it. If no one is willing to adopt him, then he will need to go to the shelter despite how much that truly pains me. I just want him to go to a good home.

Matthew is a shy but very cuddly cat. He is scared when he first comes around, but after a while when he warms up,
he is super affectionate and wants attention. He isn't good with dogs or other cats, but he is not best a first time cat owner. He would do good with someone who can be patient and caring with him, and not force him to come out because he does hide for a while.
