Maggie, pit bull terrier and boxer mix
Maggie is a female pit bull terrier and boxer mix currently in the care of Beyond Rescue.
Maggie will get along great with your other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. She has mastered her house-training etiquette. Maggie is already spayed and vaccinated.
From Maggie's current caretaker:
Miss Maggie is 1.5-year-old black-and-white pit mix. She is so sweet, a real lover, it’s kinda impossible not to fall for her — everyone does! Maggie loves people of all shapes sizes and ages. She has lived with young children, a person in a wheelchair and dogs of various sizes and done well with all of it! Miss Maggie shows a little too much interest in cats and should definitely not live with chickens. Maggie has lots of puppy energy still and will need plenty of exercise and continued training.

Collie, terrier mix
Collie is a charming female terrier mix staying at Wonder Dog Rescue.
Collie will get along great with your other dogs. She is looking for a cat-free home. She has mastered her house-training etiquette. She's already vaccinated and spayed.
Here's what Collie's friends at Wonder Dog Rescue think of her:
Collie is a two-year-old, eight-pound bundle of love! I fondly call her Little Collie Coconut because her white, fluffy hair looks like coconut shavings. She had a bit of a rough start, but she is improving by leaps and bounds. She came into rescue after being hit by a car, but she seems happy and not in pain. She sometimes favors one of her hind legs, but it doesn’t slow her down at all. In fact, she is quite a fast runner!

Potter, wirehaired terrier mix
Potter is an adorable male wirehaired terrier mix staying at 4 Dogs Farm Rescue.
Potter will get along great with your other dogs. Potter is looking for a home without small children. He is already house-trained and neutered, and he has all his shots.
From Potter's current caretaker:
This happy boy is named Potter. He's a two-year-old, 19-pound terrier mix. Potter is looking for a calm, quiet home environment and snuggle time with his humans. (No children.) Potter is still a little shy, so busy, loud places can be quite scary for him. He does enjoy walks around the neighborhood. Potter is crate-trained and can be left for four to five hours a day. He does enjoy playing with his toys while you are gone and enjoys soft relaxing music.

Leia likes children very much. She is very gentle to humans of all ages. She especially likes to hang around with young children. Leia is very smart. She learns commands very quickly and follows me well on leash. Her mellow temperaments make her many friends in my neighborhood. ... Sweet Leia is good for a first-time dog owner and/or a family with young children.
