About Arya

Arya is a beautiful young girl, with a unique and striking appearance. The rich colors of her gorgeous fur turns heads wherever she goes. We think Arya went through a very difficult life before she came to us. She seems like she had very limited experience living inside with people, and was very possibly mistreated. As a result, she was very worried about what would happen to her, and was hesitant to bond with her foster family. The happy news is that Arya has now learned that people provide good things like fresh, clean water, delicious food, and lots of love and affection. She has warmed up to her foster family very quickly, and has particularly bonded with her foster mom, curling up under her desk and cuddling next to her as she works from home. She gets along very well with her GSD foster sister, and also with the smaller dog in the family. She is an active girl who loves to play, and now enjoys being the center of her foster family's attention. Arya will need an adopter who will give her lots of love and attention, and continue her training. This care from her adopters will help her as she matures and develops into the wonderful family dog that she was always meant to be.

Loden has a pending adoption! Hello, my name is Loden, but my foster parents also call me "Shadow," "Prince," and "Handsome Dude." I am the sweetest boy, a gentle giant, who loves being with my humans and dog sisters 24/7. I love snuggling, getting hugs, and lots of petting. When you walk away from petting me, I try to coax you back by putting my paw on you. I will jump short fences and open doors to be with my family, so if you have to leave me alone, I need to stay in a kennel. Play time is very serious, and it is "go hard or go home." I love other dogs. My foster sisters and I play all the time and love playing fetch and keep away - but fetch is my favorite. I love playing fetch in the pool - the humans laugh when I splash them with water because I'm an awkward jumper and swimmer. I love swimming! I do very well on walks and am motivated by treats, which makes me easy to train. I am not possessive of food, but sometimes get a little mouthy with my favorite toys. My foster parents are helping me with that. Because I am still underweight, I can't exercise too much right now without getting tired, but I'm building up my endurance and stamina every day so you can take me everywhere with you (and I love to go!). My foster parents have nothing but good things to say about me, and are having a very hard time letting me go, but they want me to find the perfect home with people who will love me as much as they do. show less

When Ramzi first came to his foster home, he was very shy and unsure of himself. Within a day, he was running happily around the yard with the other dogs, coming to his foster family for pets and cuddles, and "play bowing" to the other dogs to entice them to play. Soon after that, some friends came to visit, and Ramzi was happy and welcoming, especially to their baby son, who Ramzi adored and was very gentle with. Translation: In a loving environment, Ramzi will quickly blossom into a happy and affectionate boy. Ramzi loves to play with ropes, balls, stuffed animals, and squeaky toys. He finds a toy to carry around and take back to his crate when he doesn’t have a game of chase to participate in. Ramzi is quickly building up his rear leg muscles. He appears to have been crated a majority of his puppyhood. This is most likely due to a healed leg injury. His rear leg was broken and required surgery to place pins, but this causes him no problems now. Come see him run and play and you will see what we mean! Ramzi has a big boy bark, and is vocal about when he needs to go outside. He is house trained, crate trained, and walks well on a leash. Ramzi is great with other dogs. He just needs to get to know them, and then he is eager to play. Ramzi LOVES children! He was delighted when a family with a toddler came to visit his foster home. He was extremely gentle and protective, walking as closely to the baby as possible, and constantly keeping an eye on him. If you are looking for a sweet, happy, affectionate young family dog, who really seems to love children, you have found him here! show less
