    Abner

    Male 2.8 years Level 2.5

    “Talk about a dream dog!  I LOVE this dog!”  Based on Abner’s foster, she would give him an A+++ on his Report Card!  "He is fully obedience trained".   "Gets along with all animals he’s met".   "Is the best walking/jogging partner".  Abner was previously adopted but was returned due to his age and size so he is looking for another family to call his own.    And although he is super sweet, gentle, laid-back, and mellow, Abner will require a dedicated, decisive, and committed owner who is willing to set boundaries and enforce them and who is willing to be fully committed to him and his on-going training and learning.    More

    Patton

    Male 2 years

    Patton is a handsome, happy, go lucky pup that likes to play with other dogs and loves his people.  He is learning manners and basic obedience including walking on a leash.  He can jump over a baby gate.  Patton is not bothered by the cats.  Is pretty easy going. We carefully choose homes for our puppies as they require owners who are home enough, and have the time, energy and patience to guide the puppy through it's chewing, digging, and mouthing stages (which can last through adolescence), and who will provide regular exercise, socialization and training so the puppy will grow up to be a mannerly adult dog. All puppies bark incessantly, dig, and destroy things if they are left alone for long periods of time, and thus, need to be with owners who do not leave them alone for long hours. More
