She loves to fetch, and play and wants to be with other dogs and people.

Sunny truly wants to be your best friend! This pup has a heart of gold. He is quite the cuddler and is well behaved. He came from an unstable background so he has some anxiety with strangers. He occasionally growls when being pet but has never bitten/tried to bite anyone. He does not bark. He is selective about his dog friends. Sunny is very good on leash and loves to hike. He is a bit reactive on leash when around dogs sometimes. He would make the best companion for someone who does not have kids and ideally does not work long hours. Sunny is loyal and loving beyond compare- you can see it in his smile!

Palin is a Cincinnati gal with a take-no-prisoners attitude who landed in California after her previous owner moved into assisted living. Miss Priss, as she's been dubbed, loves affection (on her terms) and is always ravenous for salmon kibble. Palin is 11 years old but has bouts of high energy and loves to chase a laser. She can usually be found curled up in a box (or by your side) for a nap. Palin has cohabited peacefully with dogs, but is known to be cantankerous around a fellow cat. We can't wait for you to meet her—we know she'll steal your heart (and treats).

Molly is the most friendly, confident, and loving cat I have come across. If I was not leaving for school I would have her indefinitely. She is extremely hyper and will play with just about anything. She's super curious and adventurous. Molly loves to jump on everything and follow you into every room you go into. She is super talkative and will say hello along with give you kisses. She adapted really quick to her new home previously and had zero issues with using the bathroom. She is an over stimulated cat but if your looking for a loving, attentive, cat companion she is the perfect match. The only issue that I've come across, is she does not seem to get along with other cats/animals. My parents have two other cats at their house and she gets nervous and starts to hiss or even growl at times. It could just be the other cats are provoking and taunting her but she stands her ground. I would say its recommended she is the only dog or cat in the household unless you're patient enough to go through the integration process with the new pets and current.

Tanner is an irrepressibly happy, energetic beagle mix that loves nothing better than chasing a toy and playing tug with you. He also enjoys snuggling up on the couch or in bed when it's time to rest. His relatively small size and friendly nature make him a great companion in a home with children or others who enjoy playing with him. He loves going for walks and car rides - even to the vet!

This fellow is 5 years old and is up to date on his vaccinations, has had regular checkups, has a microchip and has been neutered

Tanner also enjoys playing with other dogs; but his competitive nature indicates he would be best suited for a family with no other males; or perhaps a single-dog family.

They have been through a lot. All they want now is to find their people, play, give and receive some love, and lay at your feet.????

More about Sadie and Sasha: They are happy to greet you, but quickly settle, and like to just calmly hang out and be where you are. Sasha is good with the sit command (with a treat of course LOL), and Sadie needs a little tap on the butt, but they are quick learners!  Both are good on the leash, no pulling or lunging, as they stroll the Avenue. They are good with kids, adults, and other dogs. (Not sure about cats or small animals?) They are both potty trained, affectionate girls. They truly love each other and are bonded. Ideally they would be adopted together.  However, if we find a great adopter, we will adopt them individually. A happy life for each is our goal!

They are wonderful dogs, will make fantastic pets.
