Meet Taji (pronounced TAH-gee)! She's a sweet girl that is a little shy until she gets to know you. She is between 2-3 years of age. She's spayed, vaccinated and healthy. She's got the prettiest, softest silver colored fur. Why not meet her and make her a part of your home.

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 Cody, our 5 yr old Maltese. We are looking for an experienced adopter for him. He needs a home where there are less distractions from neighbors, foot traffic outside the home. He was living in a duplex and would bark a lot because he heard the dogs in the home attached to his. He will do best in a home with a fenced in yard or with someone who can exercise him a lot. He loves to walk. He gets along with other small dogs after a slow introduction but we feel that he will do best in a home as the only dog or with a mellow, small dog. NO cats. We would like to find a calm home for Cody to be in where he would continue to get basic obedience training. SERIOUS inquiries only. Cody is cute but he needs a consistent human to carry out his training. Ask us how to make him a part of your home. Thank you!

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.

This boy is amazing and handsome. He's gotten the best training to make him the best dog in his new furever home.

He's crate trained, housetrained, neutered, up to date on his vaccines and healthy. And, he's been doing OK with cats. 😺

Meet Sugar! She's our 10 year old big bundle of joy and she's so sweet and not just because of her name. 😊

She is in a wonderful foster home with Kari Maroncelli Martin and her husband, Don, where she is on a diet with good, weight control food and healthy snacks. She's already lost 3 lbs in 3 weeks and look at her move in the video!

She came into our rescue not spayed so we need to get a bunch more weight off of her so she's healthier for the spay surgery. Besides for a mammary mass that has been deemed benign, she's pretty healthy for her size. No diabetes and no hypothyroidism.

Be on the lookout for more Sugar updates and adoption information! If anyone is interested in meeting her, please contact us.🐾❤️
