Dog’s Name:  Ava Sex: Female Age:  2 years old

Rescue:  Safe Harbor - Terry

Breed:  Chihuahua Mix Color:  White & tan

Weight: 12 lbs


Kids:  Not Tested Dogs: Yes Cats: Yes

Health Issues:  Seems to have an issue with her hip.  A sliding Patella, nothing major but adopter needs to be aware of it. 

How I came to the shelter:  Backyard Breeder dumped Mom, Ava, Dad,Tucker and baby Amy at shelter

Things I like and Dislike:  

Comments:  As Ava came from a Backyard Breeder, she is now learning how to trust, walk on a leash and just be a dog. Ava is crate trained, doesn't bark much and has had no accidents at all. She is a little shy at first but warms up quickly. Ava is super sweet and loves attention.

Dog’s Name:  Bronze Sex: Male Age:  5

Rescue:  Halfway Home Rescue Inc.

Breed:  Hound/shepherd Color:  Tan / Black

Weight: 55-60


Kids:  No small Children due to size & Energy Dogs: Yes        Cats: No


How I came to the shelter:  Bronze originally came to our shelter in 2015 when he was brought up from GA by another shelter. The rescue didn't show up to get Bronze off transport and we couldn't let him go back to GA. We took him into our rescue. Bronze was adopted and returned one year later due to a job change for his adopter. Bronze is ready for a forever home! He is about 4-5 years old and FULL of energy. He needs an active home and must have a fenced in yard. Bronze would be a fantastic running partner. He LOVES to run. Bronze plays well with other friendly dogs. No kitties or small kids for Bronze. He doesn't realize that he's a big boy and will accidentally knock them over! Bronze would also be a great farm dog!

Things I like and Dislike:  Being outside on the Farm would be awesome.  Need space to run and play.  

Comments:  Needs a Fenced yard or to be on leash only.
