This little girl is just beyond cute. She's on the smaller size and is still all puppy (in all the good ways). Lovely Nola already walks on the leash and is learning commands. She's super sweet and loves to play. She recently met a nice Lab mix with whom she got along really well. She loves car rides and is simply a happy girl. Lovely Nola will do best in a home with yard access and no kitties, please.

I’m a young, vivacious gal. I have a talent for ball playing, and really love to do that for fun. I am often told how gorgeous I am in person as opposed to my pics. Hey, not everyone is photogenic! When I first landed with this rescue (after being on Cragislist), I was super-duper fearful. I’ve since learned that the world isn’t such a scary place, but I still prefer to hang out with people and other dogs with calm energy that make me feel safe. I’m happy, loving and playful in my home but it does take me a little bit to warm up to new folks. Once I do, I’ll be your BFF! 

Sweet as candy, Skittles is a loving girl who can take some time to warm up. She loves going on walks around the neighborhood; she doesn't let anything slow her down. Don't be deterred by her senior status — she loves playing with her toys and doesn't act like a little old lady at all. Skittles would love to find a forever home of her own, with or without other animals. Are you ready to add a pocket-sized fluff ball to your family? 

I’m eight years old, obedience-trained, crate-trained, housebroken and know how to use a doggy door. I'm a mellow guy just looking for my perfect person. I love kids of all ages, even the really little ones. I get along with calm, non-reactive dogs of all sizes. In fact, some of my best friends are Chihuahuas. I had a bad experience with a high-energy, aggressive dog way back when, so I'd really prefer to share a home with a dog(s) that is more easy going like me. By the way, I'm OK with cats too. My favorite thing to do is hang out with my people. If you think I’m handsome and would like to meet up, please message my friends at K9 Kismet, as they manage my social calendar for me.

Chloe is a sweet senior girl who just loves to be around people. She gets along well with other dogs, cats and kids, too. She loves to go for walks, car rides and pretty much anything that involves hanging out with you. Chloe gets a bit anxious when left alone for too long, so she would be best-suited for a work-from-home situation, a home with at least one family member around most of the time, or one in which she can accompany her person on their daily duties.
