Maxamus, dachshund

Maxamus is a male dachshund dog staying at Sunny Oasis Rescue.

Maxamus is eager to make friends, and he'll get along great with your other dogs. He is already house-trained. Maxamus is already neutered, and he has all his shots.

From Maxamus' current caretaker:

Maximus is a 14-year-old, 8-1/2 lb. sweet guy. He came to us as a surrender as sadly his family could no longer keep him. He walks well on a leash, does well in the car and loves to lay in the sun. He loves to cuddle up and snuggle with his person and really needs a safe, loving and happy place to spend the rest of his senior years.

Oliver, collie and pharaoh hound mix

Oliver is a charming male collie and pharaoh hound mix staying at Southland Collie Rescue.

Oliver's ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Oliver would prefer a home without small children. He has all of his shots, and he is neutered. He's mastered his house-training etiquette.

Notes from Oliver's caretakers:

Oliver is a smooth collie mix who was born on January 4, 2018 into a litter of 10. At 18 months, he is still very much a puppy...a BIG puppy...with all of a puppy's affection and playfulness, as well as unbridled energy. While Ollie loves to cuddle, play fetch, tug-of-war and run around with other big dogs, sometimes he can also be somewhat grabby and quite protective. He is very, very smart and knows basic commands, having worked with two trainers. Oliver needs a very active and engaging home life. He requires a yard with lots of space so he can run around to burn off his still-puppy energy.
