He was our family dog from a puppy and it breaks us up we can't keep him but we had to sell our home and we moved into a much smaller place and they do not allow pets. He grew up with our black Lab who passed last year. He loves to be near and around you and in the action all the time. Overall Bear is a great dog

Rex

Rex is a 50 lb four year old Lab/English Pointer mix who would love an active family who goes on walks, hikes, and/or runs. He is a very sweet dog and loves all people. Due to his high prey instinct he doesn't get along with small dogs or cats. His reactions to large dogs are inconsistent. If you like to go hiking with your friends who have dogs, that's not a problem. As long as your friends dogs are medium-large and don't get in his face he is fine. He loves to play with toys and chew on bones. He also likes to play fetch but is still learning how to bring it back. He seems like he used to be a 'backyard dog' so he doesn't seem to understand affection and what it's like to be loved. He is neutered, up to date on his shots, microchipped, and house trained.

June is a little sweetheart that we have had for about 6 months. She is a cute rottweiler-shepherd mix, perhaps about a year to a year and a half old. June has recently had her rabies shot and is licensed. She is a bit shy at first, but is very playful and good-natured. I am hoping to find a good home for her as due some changes to the family, including a new baby it has become difficult to give June the attention she deserves.

Chance

"Hi there! My name is Chance and as my name indicates I am looking for my forever human to give me a chance to show them I will be their best friend, faithful companion and snuggler to the max. Currently, I live with a very nice lady who rescued me from the shelter about 2 months ago where I had lived for 5 months and had become very stressed.  In the past two months I have grown all of my hair back, found out I am part Dalmatian, learned a few tricks and settled into being a couch potato who will also run all day and play with ropes and my moo (see picture). While I am learning every day I will need someone who is committed to helping me grow into the amazing boy I can be with lots of training and patience.  I still get very excited when I see people so I may not be the best fit for small humans.  Also I may do best in a home where I am the only 4 legged companion as my current resident dog is not very fond of my energy and play style.  If you have any questions about me please feel free to ask.  I am looking forward to meeting you and hopefully being your best friend forever."

Shadow is a sweet apx 18 month old hound mix. She is an athletic, energetic girl that would love to start her day with a lengthy run or hike. The more exercise and attention she receives the better. She does great in her crate and doesn't whine. She knows sit, come, heel, down, off, go to your crate and go to your bed. She loves dogs but would do best as the only dog in your home, or with a confident dog her size or bigger. Because she doesn't have good awareness of the strength of her body or mouth, she needs a home without young children. Shadow has a tendency to bark at things that alarm her. She doesn't sit still for very long. She wants to be near her people all the time, but isn't overly affectionate. She will however give you an occasional lick as she passes, or couch cuddle at the end of the day.  

Somebody who wants an exercise companion, is patient, firm, and committed to helping her continue to develop will be rewarded with a good girl.

You will fall in love with this little guy's floppy ears and big brown eyes. Charlie is a super friendly, sweet, cuddly, very social and loving dog. His favorite place to be is snuggled up in your lap. He's playful and runs in a full gallop with a giant grin and long ears flapping happily in the wind. He's a very easy-going guy who just really wants to be held and cuddled. He would love a home where he can be next to his family on the furniture, in the beds, always close to family members. He is always eager to binge on Netflix with you and falls asleep easily nestled in the warmth of your body. He is wonderful with older dogs and children as young as toddlers. He has a big heart ready to endure your hardships in exchange for a kind and loving companion to hold and cuddle him. His main goal in life is to be showered with your affection. He likes to give lots of kisses and loves belly rubs and gentle scratching behind his floppy and sensitive ears. He has short, soft fur and an especially squishy chest covered with a tuft of white. He enjoys baths and playing tug-of-war with a long toy. He also likes to chew stuffed animals but does not destroy furniture or belongings that are not his toys. He would be happy to go everywhere with you, but is content to be at home in a comfy spot to lounge. He can be quite lazy. Until now, he has always lived with an older dog and would be happy for a furry brother or sister. He plays well with other dogs and children once he has a chance to get to know them, much like most people you may know. He is a wonderfully loving little guy with an endless supply of snuggles and kisses who deserves a home that can provide the same in return.
