Gemma is a super sweet and enjoys toys that she can chew, lives for chasing after balls, and thinks cuddles on the sofa with you are pretty awesome. Gemma's ideal home would have a fenced yard with no other pups or super chill doggy friends. And she would thrive with a family willing to build her trust and confidence.

Mira is 60-pound German shepherd that came to us from Kuwait. Her owner brought her to the U.S., so we could help her find a new home. Mira is a very smart, inquisitive and happy girl. She is good with people and kids, but a bit too exuberant for children under 10—unless your kid is lumberjack material. She would be best in a home with a fenced yard, another dog friend and people who are in the home.

Skyler is a 4 year old, 65-pound Great Pyrenees/golden retriever mix. She's drop dead beautiful, but this quirky girl needs the right home. She should never be left in a fenced in yard. We've seen her scale eight inch fences. She may be quirky, but she's got impeccable indoor manners, loves people, and will make a fantastic pet for the right home.
