Salem
    Age: 2 Years Old / Breed: Australian Shepherd / Sex: Male / Rescue: Stray Animal Adoption Program 
    “Salem, a 2 year old Australian Shepherd who is now on the market for his forever home. He's a happy boy and gets along well with other dogs, but doesn't necessarily like to be bossed around by other dogs. Loves humans, kids included but I'd be careful around young kids not because he's mean but because he does jump for attention and weighs 70lbs. He doesn't have a ton of commands that I can tell, but seems like he will be a quick learner.”

Jigsaw
    Age: 2 Years Old / Breed: Terrier, American Pit Bull/Mix  / Sex: Male
    "Jig is my name, cuteness is my game! My name is Jigsaw! I am 2 years old and about 48 pounds.. and ready for my forever home! I am mostly housebroken, just give me a couple weeks to get back in the swing of things. The staff says I am okay around other dogs, but they're not sure how I act around cats. Children have too much energy and make me very nervous, so I need an adult home only. Be prepared to crate train and teach me the basics, like walking on a leash and commands. I am SO looking forward to coming home to humans who wanna play, fetch, and run with me!! I'm ready for my forever.. are you the one for me?"

Frozone
    
    Age: 1 Year Old / Breed: Husky-Dalmatian Mix / Sex: Male / Rescue: Louie’s Legacy
    ”Where is his super suit?! Frozone is 1 year old Husky mix! He's a petite boy at 45 pounds. Frozone is a super active boy who would love a family that is on the go. He'd be a great running or hiking buddy, as he's always ready for adventure. He loves to run and play with other dogs, but is a little too playful for kitty siblings. He's never met any children while in foster care but Frozone would do best with older kids due to his tendency to jump up when excited. He thrives off of physical exercise and is working hard on his leash manners, but will need continued work! He can't wait for his forever family to teach him new things! He would love a fenced in yard to burn off some of his energy and is respectful of a fence. He is working hard on both his crate and potty training. If you want to make this goofy boy a part of your family, apply online today!

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.”
