Kuba is a super awesome guy. He is a large dog but super sweet easy going and great with other dogs. He is also very quiet and well behaved. He is an angel. He would be great for any house hold with any level of dog experience.

Zekiler is a friendly, outgoing dog that enjoys going on walks and playing with other dogs. He lives with cats, likes to cuddle, watch TV and get loved on. He enjoys chasing balls in the yard. He has not had an accident in the house and uses the doggy dog to go out and potty. He is food motivated and learns things fast. He will be a great family member.

Zora is a beautifully marked smooth coated Border Collie. She is so calm for a Border Collie, which is very rare. She also does not display anxiety like a typical Border Collie. She is one of a kind.

Sweet Pea is just all that and a bag of chips. Great with other dogs, super loving and very snuggly. Playful and has a medium activity level. She crates beautifully and has not had any potty accidents. She is a great dog. 

Mae Rae is a great little dog that is very playful, especially with other little dogs. She is super sweet, loving and likes to sleep in the bed with her people. She's a snuggler. She is pretty well behaved, meaning she really does not do anything wrong she does not have any formal obedience training but she is super smart and would learn very quickly.

Ruby is a sweet dog that is looking for a home that will be patient with her. She is from a property seizure so before coming to us she had never lived in a home before. She has been with a foster person for several months and now knows how to use a dog door, walk on a leash, be in a crate is great with other dogs and is warming up to men. 

What a beautiful dog! This gal is gorgeous inside and out. She has a fantastic, friendly, outgoing and playful personality. She is great with other dogs, crates beautifully, has had no potty accidents and is a medium activity level.
