Get to know Jake!

Jake is a lovable, spunky teen boy! He's going through the teenage phase, where puppies have lots of energy and like to test boundaries. He needs a dog-experienced adult family to help him grow with firm boundaries and plenty of exercise. Experience with terriers would be a plus! He is so sweet, outgoing, and affectionate that it's hard not to fall in love at first sight. He is housetrained and even knows "sit" and "paw" already! He sometimes has trouble sharing high-value items, like long-lasting chew treats, but he did wonderfully otherwise for his behavioral assessment. He loves playtime with other pups and people alike, but can pushy with them in a home. He is a sweetheart with playful and confident females who aren't afraid to tell him off if he's being rude. He also needs any doggy roommates to be well trained, as they should be good role models and his family's attention will need to be focused on his training. He loves outdoor time; long walks are great and a fenced yard would be a bonus for this bouncing pup. With the right family who is committed to training, exercise, and plenty of adventures he'll make a wonderful companion.

  • Food-motivated and eager to learn.

Get to know Amy!

In her previous home, she struggled with sharing with her doggy brother. The conflict was too much for the household to work with so she came to us to look for a home as an only dog.

She thinks kids running around is stressful, and scary when they run towards her! She would do fine with teens 15 and up who know to be gentle as she warms up, and eventually fine with visiting kids who know to give her space and let her peacefully watch from a distance.

Remi and Ruger are an outgoing and fun pair looking for a home together! They lived the cushy home life as spoiled pets until their family had a new baby and not enough time for them. Ruger knows to listen to his big, but shorter, sister and always lets her have first pick during meal times.
