I enjoy long walks to the park and cuddling up on the couch to watch Netflix at the end of a long day. Other dogs have told me how much fun they have at the dog park too — do you think we can go together? I would love to go to obedience class with you so I can show off how smart I am. 

Joker is looking for a big-hearted family ready to give him a place to run and play. Joker won't stand for being cooped up in an apartment or condo, so he needs to go to a home where there's a big yard he can call his own. Joker's adopter will need to be ready to give him a positive, structured environment and will need to be prepared to work with him on his manners when he meets new potential buddies.

Gabe is a happy tail-wagging boy that loves to play. He is still young and would benefit from a couple of walks every day to get his energy out. Gabe will make a great addition to any loving home.

Frock is looking for a family to provide long walks and daily trips to the dog park so he can run around with all of his doggy friends. He loves attention and can't wait to be part of the fun. He would love toys and a bed of his very own and maybe even some treats for when he is a good boy. After a long day of fun, Frock looks forward to curling up on the couch to watch TV with his new family. 

Rivka would love toys and a bed of her very own. She loves treats and can't wait to curl up on the couch with her new family after a long day of fun. She is very snuggly and is a big puppy. She seems to be rather gentle and not too mouthy. She is a bit scared of city noises and is new to the leash, so will need some leash training.
