About Basil

Basil has a pending adoption! Hi! My name is Basil. No, I’m not an herb, but I sure do love to put my nose in my foster mom’s basil plant. I was extremely happy to come stay with my foster family. I love my foster mom and dad! They give lots of petting, scratches, and love, which I enjoy and always come back for more of. I am house trained and kennel trained, even though my kennel is not my favorite place. I am a super chill, happy go lucky girl, except when my young foster sister wants to play. Then, I wrestle and play until I can go no further. I have a senior foster brother who has taught me to respect him, but still lets me cuddle with him. I love to be outside (but only when someone is with me) and I love to go on walks. Sometimes I still pull when walking, but my foster mom is helping me with that. She is also teaching me commands that I need to know. From Basil's Foster Family: Basil is a sweet, loving girl. She is smaller in size, but has a huge personality. She would do best in a home with other dogs because she loves the interaction. She would also do well in a family that is active. Overall, she would be a perfect addition to just about any family. She is such a sweet, loyal young lady!

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

Remi is a beautiful, intelligent little girl who is just beginning to come out of puppyhood. She is very active and fun-loving! She loves games and is happy to play at any time. Her body is petite but her strength is not! She is incredibly strong, fast, and agile. She is an ideal companion. She is house trained and crate trained. She loves to be with people and be petted, or nuzzle her face into you. Remi is not only intelligent but extremely intuitive. She is very sensitive to moods and is eager to please. She is easily trained, and responds quickly to the slightest correction. Remi cannot produce digestive enzymes, and requires a supplement that is sprinkled on her food with every meal. With this supplement, Remi should be able to live a long and healthy life. Her foster mom says she is such an amazing girl, that the small effort her adopter puts into sprinkling on the supplement will be paid a hundred fold with love and devotion from beautiful Remi. Remi loves children. She can play very well with other dogs that are not too dominant or aggressive, but Remi is not a pushover, and will stand her ground. Remi needs a family that will show her love and affection with gentle consistency, and who will be generous with giving her plenty of time to play, run, and be active. Come meet sweet Remi, and be prepared to fall in love with this wonderful girl! show less
