Her favorite place to sit is on top of another dog; whether she’s gazing out the window or waiting at the door for her humans. Hopefully her new sibling is ok with this! Daisy loves all kinds of games, jumping on couches or beds, and TOYS! She’s also a sock stealer so remember to keep them off the floor where they won’t become a risky snack. She gets pretty excited and vocal when she wakes on the morning so an apartment might not be the best fit.

Additional Information: Daisy loves meeting new people. If they’re not a fan of dogs, she will win them over. She has been quite the pleasant distraction at the soccer field. Daisy is young and working on her leash manners but will benefit from continued training.

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!

Petey

Petey

Size: Small, 22 pounds

Good With Dogs: Yes

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.
