Jasper
    Age: Kitten / Breed: Domestic Short Hair / Sex: Male / Rescue: For The Love of Kittens, Inc
    "If you are looking for a kitten to attach himself to you, then Jasper is the one, He loves his person and Dory. In fact he and Dory have to be adopted together. They play together, sleep in the sun together and they will stuff themselves in a tiny bed just to be together. He loves other cats and kittens and is very tolerant of our three little dogs. Jasper is good with older children but would probably do better in a home with older teenagers or just adults. Oh and he talks to you all the time. I will look at him and ask a question and he always answers. Don't overlook this handsome guy!!!!!!"

Polly
    Age: 1 Year Old / Breed: Chihuahua / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue
    "Polly is a 1 year old 8 lb, female, Chihuahua thru and thru. She is friendly with other dogs, loves to play and keep busy. She is still a puppy in so many ways so she needs a owner to enforce boundaries or she can easily become possessive. She would love an owner that will walk her or a yard to play in. She would do best with older kids being so little. She is working really hard on potty training and with positive guidance she is catching on. Polly is full of energy providing tons of laughs and love. She is always ready to snuggle when time to wind down. Her adoption fee is $400.00."

Bobby
    Age: 2 Years / Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue
    ”Introducing Bobby. He is a 2 year old Blue Heeler mix who weighs around 40 lbs. Bobby loves car rides, zoomies in the backyard and snuggle time. Bobby knows commands such as sit, stay and is potty trained. This sweet boy is great on a leash and loves to go for neighborhood walks. He does good in a crate but doesn’t willingly go in, a little treat bribing always works! Bobby loves to play with his two foster sisters, 15 pound schnauzer mix and 110 pound Newfoundland. Due to his herding breed he can be nippy during play, be he is easily redirected. He would probably prosper best in a home with older kids. Bobby has been diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease. This means as he ages the signs and symptoms of lyme may show up and need treatment, but may never have signs or symptoms.”

Mr. Stark
    Age: 3 Years / Breed: Collie Mix / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue
    "Mr. Stark is a vibrant & engaging 3 year old Collie Mix about 50 lbs. He's highly intelligent and absolutely a cuddle bug just waiting to share his huge personality with his forever person/family. If Lassie had a cousin it would be Mr. Stark, always inquisitive and talkative. He is crate-trained, loves to run & play. He's fostered with several other dogs but should always be introduced slowly to new dogs just to allow time & space for new friends. He loves to try to outsmart his human so he would benefit from a dog savvy family willing to set boundaries and allow him to continue to build his confidence. He will make a great companion with the right family that will allow him space to acclimate to a new home with unconditional love & patience & in return he will love them back unconditionally with his sweet personality. Mr. Stark will keep you on your toes with his wittiness & outgoing personality! Mr. Stark's adoption fee is $250."

Arrivederci
    Age: 5 Weeks / Breed: Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever Mix / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue
    “These adorable little pups came into rescue at only 5 weeks old. They were riddled with worms, parasites and a tough ringworm infection! After a lot of love, care and medicine, they are now happy, healthy pups ready to say GOODBYE to rescue and HELLO to their forever homes!
    These pups were born August 3rd, making them around 15 weeks of age. Their mom was reported to be a Labrador Retriever/Golden Retriever Mix but their father is unknown. Based on how different these puppies look, it's tough to even guess Dad's breed! Because we did not have mom or dad in rescue, we can not guarantee the puppies' breed, adult weight and size, but based on their current weights (12-15 pounds each) we would guess for them to grow to be medium size dogs. The Goodbye pups have been exposed to other dogs, cats and handled by children. They are happy and well socialized! Because their foster family was focused on getting them healthy, they are not potty trained and have not started obedience training, so they will be a clean slate for their future families!The Goodbye pups have been through a lot in their short lives, but now that they are healthy and happy, they are ready for their forever homes”

Tulle
    Age: Adult / Breed: Domestic Long Hair / Sex: Female / Rescue: OAR
    “Tulle's playfulness and sweet demeanor quickly charmed her foster mom, no to mention her adorable pink nose! She loves fabric wand toys, which she proudly drags around like a trophy once she 'catches' them. Tulle also LOVES crinkly packing paper! She will slide across it, hide underneath it, and play all day. Who needs an expensive toy when there are boxes and packing paper to play with? And this kitty has great paw-eye coordination. She'll even catch toys tossed to her! Tulle isn't a lap cat per se, but will lay next to you and enjoy pets or a relaxing grooming session. (Her secret favorite scratch spot is right between her shoulder blades.) To earn extra brownie points with Tulle, offer her some broth or gravy wet food. It is her absolute favorite, especially in turkey and chicken flavors.”

Renaissance
    Age: Adult / Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Sex: Female / Rescue: Stray Animal Adoption Program
    “Renaissance (or 'Reni' as her friends call her) has given birth to her last litter of pups and is ready to reinvent herself! She is an enthusiastic player, preferring rough and tumble play with a dog her size, so her new best friend can keep up with her. She tends to have a bit of trouble making friends because not everyone wants to play with a wiggle butt body slamming into you, but when you have as much energy as this fun girl, thats the BEST way to play! Do you think that you (and your existing doggo, if you have one) are strong enough, both physically strong and strong willed, to be part of Reni's new family?”

    “We have a mystery on our hands that needs to be solved immediately!! It's quite a mystery that these two: Fred Jones and Scooby-Doo are still looking for their furever homes. Their siblings were adopted this past weekend and now it's Fred and Scooby's turn at the good life!! They appear to be hound/beagle mix. Both are males. I am estimating them to be 3-4 months old. Scooby-Doo was the runt of the litter so he is currently about 10 pounds while his brother is 15 pounds.”

    “Mustang Sally is a curious, independent girl. She loves attention and is always up for some quality time with her person, but she's happy to explore the yard and romp in the grass with her siblings, too. She loves to wrestle and tends to be a little more gentle than some of her brothers when they play. If anyone starts to get too wild and rough, she'll let them know they need to take it down a notch.”

Rudy
    Age: 8 Years Old / Breed: Chihuahua / Sex: Male / Rescue: Lucky Tales Rescue 
    “Well, hello there! My name is Rudy. I'm a small guy who is roughly 8 years old and I'm not only housebroken but I'm crate trained, too. I love to eat and I also love to cuddle but I like to be the one who approaches others and I don't like being picked up. If you sit down, I'll jump right into your lap, though, so if you could please let me do things my own way, we'll get along great! I do well with other dogs but since I still have a bit of spunk, I'll chase cats (FYI - the cats I currently live with tolerate my occasional chase). Also, small children aren't for me and I really need to be with someone who has owned Chihuahuas and understands me and my kind.”

Mack Daddy
    Age: 4 Years Old / Breed: English Bulldog Mix / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue
    “Mack Daddy is the most handsome English Bulldog in town! This squishy faced dude is on the search for his very own forever home. At almost 4 years old, he's a tiny tank weighing in at 55-60 pounds. Mack loves every dog he's ever met and while he likes to play, his smushy face needs frequent breaks. He prefers to eat his meals and chew on his bones in his own space. Mack has both face and tail folds that need to be cleaned daily in order to keep from getting infected. He also loves the kittens in his foster home and would do well in a home with cats. Mack would do best with children aged 10+. He enjoys going for short walks around the neighborhood and snuggling with his foster mom. If you're looking for a nearly perfect boy, then look no further! Mack Daddy cannot wait to find his forever home. Apply online today! My adoption fee is $250.”

Ogg
    
    Age: 8 Weeks Old / Breed: Boxer / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
    ”These adorable little 8 week old babies are ready to find forever homes! They came into rescue at 11 days old after losing their mom, requiring them to be bottle fed the first four weeks of life. We did not meet either parent, so we are unsure of their breed or size when full grown. They are guessed to be Boxer mixes and to be a medium size when full grown! These pups have been well socialized with people and other dogs while in foster care, and would love another dog in their forever home to grow up with. If you want to make one of the puppies a part of your family, apply online today!
    My adoption fee is $400.”

Hilton
    
    Age: 2 Months Old / Breed: Chihuahua / Jack Russell Terrier / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
    ”If you want a kitten sized puppy that plays on it's own but seeks your attention and kisses, then this is your litter!! This litter of Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix puppies are 2 months old and only weigh 2 lbs each.. they are the size of kittens (for now)! Each puppy is confident, independent but loves attention from their people and will come to you with their tails wagging and then roll over on their back for a belly rub:) We did not see mom or dad, so their breed and adult size cannot be guaranteed. This litter has been fostered with a 55lb pitbull mix and they seek her out for attention and affirmation. If she signals to back away with a growl, they respond. They reacted appropriately to children when handled gently. Each puppy is learning to "go potty" outside or use a puppy pee pad. Each also knows that their shared crate is their safe place to go to sleep. Hilton is the shorter of the more Chihuahua looking girls. She has a similar personality to her sister Pawley and is confident but seeks attention from her people. Her little tail wags with anticipation of being picked up. If you are interested in adopting one of these cuties, apply today! Hilton's adoption fee is $400.”

Lovey
    
    Age: 6 Years Old / Breed: Pomeranian Chihuahua Mix / Sex: Female / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
    ”HI…I’m Lovey the Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix. I’m 6 years old, spayed, and weigh only 7 lbs. I am potty-trained and crate-trained, but foster mom doesn’t crate me since I am such a good girl. For the most part, I am laid back and low energy, occasionally I’ll decide to play with a toy. If I’m not following Foster Mom around the house, I enjoy curling up next to her on the couch or snoozing in a fuzzy cuddler bed. Sometimes I sneak into my human foster brother’s bed and cuddle with him. I do prefer being the center of attention but will co-exist with the other small dogs in my foster home, if need be. I am comfortable with men and bigger kids. I am a big love and I’m waiting for the perfect furever family to adopt me! Pick me, Love me! My adoption fee is $400.”
