Luta, chihuahua mix

Luta is a female chihuahua mix currently housed at Second Chance Dog Rescue.

Luta will get along great with other dogs and cats. She's already house-trained. She is already spayed and vaccinated.

From her current caretaker:

Luta is a sweet and shy little eight-pound, seven-year-old who is ready for a loving home with a predictable quiet life style and gentle loving hands. She clearly had a trauma to her back which could explain her sensitivity to being picked up or touched on her back or sides. She asks for and loves getting pets around her head, but doesn't like you to take any extra liberties.

Bogey, poodle and Maltese mix

Bogey is a darling male poodle and Maltese mix being cared for at No Wagging Tail Left Behind Animal Rescue.

Bogey loves to socialize, and he loves other dogs. He's already house-trained, neutered and vaccinated.

Here's what Bogey "tells" friends at No Wagging Tail Left Behind Animal Rescue:

I'm four years old and am a happy-go-lucky little fellow with a big smile on my face and my tail always wagging. My foster family also says I'm a gentle soul, intuitive and a darling boy. I will quietly ask to be picked up and patiently wait. I'll make a good companion, both for you but also for another dog as I'd love to have a brother or sister in my forever home.

Koji, pit bull terrier

Koji is a male pit bull terrier dog being kept at The Rescued Dog.

He is already vaccinated, neutered and house-trained.

Koji's current caretakers say:

He has such a young soul for a senior dog. He has the best butt-wigglewhen he is excited. He is very adaptable to his environment; when I want to relax he can be a couch potato, but if I want to walk/run/play with him, he is ready to go. He takes a while to warm up to new people but his favorite way of bonding is playing fetch. He also is a total water dog — he could swim for hours.
