Coco is a very sweet Doberman. Her face is full of cuteness! She always wants to play, wants your attention! She loves to jump a lot! She knows how to go fetch a ball, she does have a trouble listening to the owner because she gets distracted easily. But she knows how to do: Sit, down, paw, high five, and spin with a small treat at the end. Very smart dog if she listens.

Teddy is a mix of Australian Shepherd and mini poodle with one brown eye and one blue eye. His fur color is off white with dark markings on his ears, back and butt. He is fluffy and sheds some. He is very intelligent, sweet and fun to play with. He knows common commands. He likes having a walk and doesn't like to be caged. His active level is medium to high. He doesn't like bath and paw washing. Professional grooming is recommended. He is fixed. He weighs 20 pounds and up to date on his shots.

Unfortunately, we just found out Teddy is a puppy mill dog with fear and food aggression which started to show recently. When getting his paws cleaned or touched on his back, he has nipped. The bites leave marks and have drawn some blood. An experienced and knowledgeable person who has patience and time can be a good fit for him. He is truly an adorable boy. He has been friendly with almost any dogs his size or smaller, but not with big dogs resembling golden retrievers due to being chased a few times. Teddy has been good with children, but not sure about small children since he doesn't like to be touched in the back or hugged. We feel very sorry for him being born  a puppy mill dog which isn't his fault and feel sorry that we don't have time to help him recover. We hope there is someone with patience and time giving him a loving home.

I adopted Duke in October 2019 to keep my other dog company. He responds well with a dominant dog (my other dog is dominant). He is high energy, has pretty good manners in the house, and is house trained. He has high drive, so would not recommend small animals as cohabitation with him.

Roscoe is the sweetest boy with such a loving personality. His tail never stops wagging. Roscoe loves people, kids and grew up with a cat. His favorite hobbies are going for walks, eating cookies, playing with toys and hanging around people, however cuddling is what he does best. Roscoe sleeps through the night and is fully potted trained. He is a little skittish meeting new people but warms up quickly and once he has your trust he is your best friend. Might do best as the only dog. Roscoe is neutered, up to date on all his shots and micro chipped. Unfortunately, Roscoe and his 4 year old doggy sister stopped getting along and he needs a new loving home. Roscoe recently had to have his ear removed due to his dog sister biting him. Even though he only has one floppy ear he is still cute as ever.

Duchess is a gentle Olde English Bulldog. She is good with people and especially, with kids. She's okay with cats and other animals. She does have issues with her knee ligaments. This is the way I adopted her. I found out within two months that she had some problem and it progressed until I was given medical advise to rest her and put her on pain management treatment. She is a little better now, but the problem did not fix itself. She would probably need a double surgery on both hind knees.

He is healthy with all vaccinations up to date and neutered. He is house trained, spends the day in and out of the yard and sleeps in a crate most nights.He loves to run and hike. He does fairly well on a leash except when he sees a cat! He is good with teenagers and adults, not sure about small children.His chewing days are, for the most part, over, except when he gets hold of a sock! He does have some moments of barking when someone passes the yard. He gets very excited when the garbage collection happens. He does nip at ankles on occasion. We have had "Watson" since he was 9 weeks old and have fallen in love. But, because of extenuating family circumstances we need to re-home him.
