Meet Tazio! He has come so far since we first got from the shelter. Most of his progress is due to Mark and Natural Dog Training (NDT) , but many people gave him a second chance. He is now looking for a home that is a lot more balanced than his previous. He needs someone to continue with this training method with him. He's approx 2 yrs old , cane corso , neutered , UTD with shots and would be best an only dog just for the purpose of someone giving him undivided continued work he needs. We would not recommend small children bc he is still a spaz of a puppy and getting over fear of hand, but as you can see his relationship with people is changing and he has so much to offer if interested please contact Tracy with HeartsHerd to fill out an application 469-9220.

Meet Widget (female) and Jackson (male). They are two very special dogs that are VERY bonded and need to be adopted together. Widget is 11 yearS and Jackson is 10 years YOUNG! They have been together since puppies and we will not separate. Widget is in perfect health and definitely does not act her age...very spry! Jackson still acts young however due to poor dental care/disease, it led to an incurable heart murmur. He will continue to be on meds to alleviate some symptoms but the heart disease will always remain. He sometimes coughs when he gets excited. So, someone who wants to adopt will go forth knowing that Jackson's time is much shorter than Widgets, but he can still be a loving dog for the time he has left. His last vet visit, the MD stated that Jackson has now been stabilized on his med's. 🙂 Another challenge is they were trained by their previous owner to use wee wee pads indoors. We are working on the potty training and they are doing better. They just need more frequent let outs to pee. With this being said, they are definitely worth it despite their challenges. We want to find a forever home that they can retire in. They are adorable and VERY affectionate. They must have a home that will give them the attention, patience and love.

Hooray for "Baby cat" calico. She was adopted by Marlene, our neighbor, and an official name still awaits. 😂

The adult female, Maggie, has bonded to her as if she was her true mama. So cute!

Happy tails to this sweet calico! ❤️

Here's Cherokee getting his hoof soaked & cleaned due to a problematic hoof abscess. The way to keep him compliant and well behaved is bribing him with treats while he stands here. lol

Say a little prayer for a speedy recovery. ❤️

We love our local farm stand because they give out the veggies that are less than perfect for the local farmers and farms for their animals.
Copper, our pig, and the goats love it.
