All about Bear:

This happy and playful boy is a great catch for an active family!  Friendly, well-mannered, and super affectionate, Bear is the full package.  If snuggles, playtime, long walks, and lots of fun are what you're looking for, Bear is your guy!

Bear knows his basic commands, has excellent house-manners, and can be home alone without issue.  He gets along with other well-mannered dogs and thoroughly enjoys going to doggie daycare.  Bear is fine with cats, and could join a home with other pets. What a good boy!

He comes from a loving home where he has been well cared for, but due to changes in his owner's life, Bear is in need of a new family to call his own.  He is currently still living with his owner, and we are posting him for adoption on their behalf.  We will review applications and forward suitable applications to his family, and they will contact potential matches to discuss Bear in more detail. 

Bear is a mixed-breed dog and not in our foster program, we are courtesy posting him and accepting and pre-screening applications to help his family find the best fit for him.  We have not assessed Bear ourselves and all information was provided to us by his family.  

By completing our application for Bear you are agreeing to us sending your application to Bear's family for them to review and contact you directly about adopting Bear.  If you currently have an application on file with us and you would like to be considered for Bear, no need to reapply, just send us an email letting us know you are interested in Bear.

All about Walter

Handsome fella' Walter is a new arrival in our care and is settling into his foster home marvelously.  This sweet 5 yr old boy has known nothing but love and he gives the same in return.

Well mannered, sweet as can be, Walter is the whole package!  He gets along well with dogs, cats, kids, and pretty much everyone he meets.  What a good boy!

Walter is a very tall boy and is currently in need of dropping some extra pounds.  We will post more updates once we have him seen by our vet and assess him further.
