Benefits of Adopting a Bonded Pair
Bonded dogs might be siblings, a parent and offspring or just friends that were raised together from a young age.
A bonded pair give each other some stability, and often one follows the other's lead, helping the more passive one to adjust more quickly than she/he otherwise would have.
Adopting a bonded pair of dogs can be a rewarding experience for the dogs and their human friends. A pair of bonded pets is often less work than single pets — they keep each other entertained and help prevent some of the separation anxiety issues that we often see when pets are left alone." Besides, if you're looking for a pair of dogs, it's easier to adopt two that you're sure will get along.
We can't do it without your help, so please...
Bull (male) & Coco (female) are 5 year old Boxer mixes and are brother and sister. They are very closely bonded and will make a great ready-made pair of additions to your family. Like most of their breed, they are high-spirited, playful, curious and energetic. Highly intelligent, eager and quick to learn.
Jack (male and Jill (female) are both 1 year old Smooth Collie mixes and have been raised together and need to be adopted together. Do you have room in your heart for both?
SPECIAL NEEDS PUPPY NEEDS SPECIAL HUMAN!
Hi, my name is Hank; I am a 10 week old Australian Cattle Dog. I am a DEAF puppy who is looking for someone who has experience with deaf dogs, and is willing to work with me and my special need. I need a home without kids because I am a bit nippy (common trait of Cattle Dogs). I'm a typical puppy going through this stage, and not being able to hear, I need someone who is patient and steadfast. Please understand I'm very smart; it will just take some time to train me, but I have lots of potential!

All our dogs LOVE to get out of their kennels for a game of "fetch", or just to take a walk or even just sit under a tree for a while. If you would like to join our great group of volunteers in helping these dogs have some fun and relaxing times, give us a call and we will be happy to sign you up!
