Hi! I’m Bessie and I’m looking for my best friend. I’m really a simple, sweet girl - give me all the attention and love, and take me for walks and I’ll be happy! My favorite pastimes include: clearing the park of all the squirrels, sneaking naps on the couch, and getting attention from humans. I also really enjoy going for walks! There’s so much to sniff! Recently, I’ve been living with two cats, and we get along great, even when the human is gone. Sometimes they’re mean to me though, and I don’t understand why. It’s kind of scary when they are. I wish they would play with me. When they run, I think they want to play, but the human tells me no, so I guess they don’t want to. I met a dog for a walk once. I was really nervous to meet him, but he was nice to me. He kept trying to sniff my rump though, and after a little bit I got annoyed and growled at him. Our humans gave us a break and then we went for a walk together. I like that he respected my space after that. I could probably get used to another dog, but being an only is really fun because then I get all the attention. I think my ideal best friend has a yard I can stalk bunnies in, enjoys doing outside things like walks and hikes, and is ready to give me lots of love and affection. They’re also going to have to be patient with me. I get nervous with new things and it makes me confused so I don’t always listen right away. They’ll definitely have to practice good walking technique with me too. I’m pretty good, but squirrels really mess me up, and I don’t always like to follow my human. I kind of get in my own groove and try to take charge. Plus, I don’t understand that the street is dangerous, so my new best friend will have to help me! Here’s a short list of things I love and don’t like. It’s pretty easy to love me! LIKES: Long walks Treeing squirrels Snuggles from the human Sneaking on the couch for naps Cohabitating with feline friends Begging for people food Peanut butter Being near the human Meeting new humans DISLIKES: Listening while on walks Listening while treeing squirrels Not getting all the snuggles Being escorted off the couch When the felines run around, I get confused Not getting people food Apples and carrots Watching the human leave Meeting new dogs Will you be my new best friend?? Love Bessie Girl

Happy Holidays! Seamus here! I am a 3 year old, energetic shorthair looking for my forever home! On the shorthair scale my foster Mom rates me as an 8-10. I will need a very active family with daily exercise (running, biking, hunting). Currently I am running at least 3-5 miles a day and I play ball 2-3 times a day with my foster’s shorthair. For me to be on my best behavior this is the minimum amount of exercise I need. If I get my required exercise, I am very well behaved and I listen very well. I know how to sit, heel, stay, come, along with other commands and love pleasing my people. I am invisible fence trained and love having free roam of our large yard. I know how to use a doggie door and would do best with access to a kennel or a yard to play in. I am not liking to be locked in my crate right now, although I am working on that. However, I have been well behaved in the house and love lounging on couches and dog beds. Once adjusted to my new home and family I will likely do fine alone in the house. I do like to carry shoes around (every dog has to have a quirk) but I haven’t chewed on them or anything other than my doggie toys. At night I turn into a couch potato and love snuggling. I mostly ignore cats – I do have prey drive and will chase them if they tease me by running across the yard, but I come back if Mom says No. I am an alpha male, but with early ground rules laid have not had any problems living with a my foster’s two dogs. I am fine with older children but would prefer a home without very young children. If possible it would be nice to have someone who works at home rather than being gone long hours during the day. I LOVE birds and smells and if taken for a walk on a leash am very strong unless you tell me to heel. Did I mention how fit I am and how proud I am of my endurance? If you love running, snowshoeing, biking or just exercising in any kind of weather I am your guy! I would like nothing better than to be your new fitness coach!
