This sweet girl is well-mannered and very gentle. Esmay is a shy pup and will require a calm, patient home that is willing to help build her confidence without expecting too much from her too soon. She is not aggressive by any means; she's just timid. Her three puppies were adopted a few months ago and now it is time for this sweet mom to find her own forever home. 

She is not excessively affectionate and is more feline in nature than canine. She was returned, with deep sadness, by her owner who placed Maxi's best interests ahead of her own. Alone too many hours a day, Maxi was suffering from being alone. In our care, she has blossomed into a happy-go-lucky girl and is thriving in the company of several canine bunk mates. She must have someone home with her or have another dog to keep her company.

I'm big and strong, but also a lover. I'm not a fan of other dogs, so I need to be the only one in the home. I can be placed in a home with kids 12-plus. 

I came into rescue because my family could no longer care for me. So now I'm looking for a home where I can relax and be spoiled. I'm a sweet girl that gives kisses and likes to be with my people. I like some dogs but no birds or small animals for me. I can be placed in a home with kids 12-plus. Can I come home with you? 

I was recently rescued from the shelter and now I'm looking for my forever home. I've had a rough beginning to my life so I'm looking for a chill place to retire. I would do best in a home with kids 12-plus and no other dogs. I'm easygoing and don't ask for much. Can you open your home to me?
