Blondie is a young, outgoing pup. She is well known on social media for hanging out with her sidekick friends as well as being very photogenic! She is very smart, affectionate, and eager to please and learn new things. She would prefer to be the only (spoiled) pet in the home but will reward you with the best hugs ever!

Simon says, “I’m a big handsome goofball!” Simon is a young, potty trained mixed breed doggo looking for his forever family, preferably one that loves walks as much as he does! He is playful and affectionate. He needs to be the only pet in the home and is longing to soak up all the rays of love and attention from his future furever family.

Doris is a rowdy 6 year old who lives to play! . . . And nap, of course. She wants all your nap time snuggles, playtime, and lovins just for herself! Doris is a polydactyl and she puts those extra toes to use, tossing around her toys!

Tammy Girl is a 5 year old precious polydactyl who wants your undivided attention, unless she is eating, of course! She loves long naps, but when it’s time to play she will definitely let you know.
