Unfortunately he is having trouble adjusting to our toddler’s not-always-gentle ways, and that situation has been getting progressively worse. He needs a home without small children, and a family that has the time to give him the attention and regular exercise that he very much needs. Since having children, we cannot give him…

Hello! My name is Danny, and I am the bestest boy around! Quick Facts: Breed: Chocolate Lab Gender: Male, neutered Age: 7 year old Size: 90 pounds Good with… Dogs? No! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! History I was adopted by my former owners as a little puppy and they have loved me and taken fabulous care of me for the past 7 years.

Personality Never mind my size, I’m the sweetest, cuddliest, goofiest, snuggliest, loveable guy…

Hi! I’m Buddy and I’m an incredibly sweet and loving little guy! Quick Facts: Breed: Mini Poodle mix Gender: Male, neutered Age: 8 year old Size: 21 pounds Good with… Dogs? Yes! Cats? Yes! Kids? Yes! History I came all the way from Kentucky and have a sad story to tell. My former owner was elderly and not doing well, and consequently, though she loved me, she didn’t take proper care of me. When she had to go and live in a hospital full-time, I was turned into a shelter, and was in sad shape. My skin and fur was a mess, and I looked like a raccoon with black circles around my eyes from the untreated eye infection that I had probably had for quite some time. Luckily, after hopping a ride on the Doggy Underground Railroad, I joined the CDR foster program and landed in a home with…
