About Riker

Riker has a pending adoption! Riker's foster family can't get over what a great dog he is! His foster dad says he is one of those easy going dogs who gets along with all other dogs, and people of all ages. Riker is very sweet and loving. He is a happy, playful boy who especially enjoys chasing balls and bringing them back to you. He loves his foster family, and when they come home, he stands up on his hind legs and does pirouettes to greet them. He likes to go for walks and go in the car, and is well behaved both walking on leash and riding in the car. His foster dad says Riker is "easy breezy," and is ready to meet his forever family.

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
