Everyone please say hello to Potato! This adorable guy is about 3.5 months old and weighs approximately 16 pounds. He is a Dalmatian mix and is ready to bring you a lot of fun and puppy kisses! Whether you like mashed, fried or baked, this is one Potato that would be hard to resist. Potato is currently living with a foster in Tennessee but can travel wherever BFDR goes.

Romi is your typical one-year-old puppy. She likes to play and rough house with other dogs, so a dog to play with would be great. She is OK with dog savvy cats. She is looking for a home and a family that will love her.
