NAME: Zane
BREED: German Shepherd mix
AGE: Young, probably about 1 year old
HEALTH: Neutered, fully vaccinated, chipped
BEHAVIOR: Loves all humans, other dogs.
This sweet boy is shy at first but warms up quickly , loves his human and plays well with other dogs . He is young, healthy and likes to cuddle. He also loves to play fetch and keep away. He will be a great companion for the right family. We think that he is a shepherd hound mix and weighs about 50 pounds but could use a few groceries. If you are interested in helping the sweet boy by giving him a temporary place to stay until he finds his forever family please let us know.

I came to my foster mom as Ruby, but she calls me Harlie girl! I am said to be a Shepard/Labrador mix (Shepador) weighing about 45 lbs. I am a super sweet girl and I listen very well. I am crate trained as well as house trained. I live with 3 cats right now, I still don't know whether to leave them be or play with them but I'll figure it out soon enough! I love my toys (ropes the most) and bones! They keep me busy! I walk really well on a leash ( I do get excited to meet people, kids, and other dogs though)! I know how to sit, sometimes laydown, and I'm working on "stay". I ride really well in the car and love going to dog parks! I'm so good with other dogs!!! I will melt your heart with my eyes or my cuddles, I am a big lover!!

NAME: Hallie
BREED: Black Lab
AGE: 8 years old
GENDER: Female
HEALTH: Spayed, fully vaccinated, chipped
BEHAVIOR: Does okay with other dogs but would prefer to be the only dog, loves all people, couch dog
Hi I'm Hallie! I am an 8 year old female black lab mix girl. I'm very active and healthy for my age. I'm not too big, only about 50 pounds. My previous owner became ill and was no longer able to care for me. I LOVE to run in a big yard. I love my humans but am a little cautious of other dogs .I am currently in a foster home in Massachusetts with other dogs and do ok with them... however I would also love to have all of the attention to myself. I need a home with someone who is dog savvy and can help me with my ongoing training. I am looking for a laid back house where I will have people around most of the time, I want nothing more than to hang out right by your side. So what do you say? I am the girl for you?
