Size: Medium, 29 pounds
Good With Kids: Yes, but they need to be at least 8 years old
Good With Cats: No
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Harley prefers to be with older children whose behaviors are more predictable. She doesn’t like loud noises or sudden, unpredictable movements. She is uneasy around new people and needs slow introductions. She would prefer a calm, quiet environment. A fenced yard would be great but it is not required. She would love a window where she can watch squirrels.

Additional Information: Harley is the biggest snuggler. She loves nothing more than to curl up in a ball on your lap or roll over for a belly rub. Harley seems to like other dogs but she will do fine as the only dog in the home. If she had to choose between a dog buddy and a person; her person would win every time. She is great on a leash! She does get excited when she sees a squirrel, but has learned the “leave it” command.

Petey

Petey

Breed: Jack Russell Terrier mix
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birth Date: 3/15/2020
Size: Small, 22 pounds
Good With Kids: Unknown but most likely yes. The children will need to avoid touching his ears until the infections are gone
Good With Cats: Unknown
Good With Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes

Recommended Environment: Petey likes to follow his nose. He will enjoy taking walks with plenty of stops for sniffing. Luckily, he is really good on a leash. His new home MUST have plenty of tennis balls for chasing. He likes meeting new people and is very friendly. He enjoys spending time with his person and doesn’t like to be left alone.

Additional Information: Petey is doing well learning his commands; he knows sit, stay, down, leave it, come, stand, and sit pretty. Petey has some skin issues that we are currently treating. We’re waiting for his hair to fill in on his back end. He also had severe ear infections when we brought him in. Poor guy wasn’t feeling well and wasn’t very interested in playing with other dogs. We think that he may have been worried about them hurting his sore ears. He gets nervous on car rides and needs to learn that they don’t always mean going to the vet.
