Chopper, beagle mix
Chopper is a handsome male beagle mix in the care of From Forgotten to Forever.
Chopper is ready to make friends — he'll get along great with other dogs. Chopper is already neutered, has had all his shots, and is already house-trained.
Chopper's current caretakers say:
He is very friendly with other dogs and does fine with kids. He enjoys to spend his days playing with his foster brothers and toys, but he likes to settle at your feet at night after he has climbed up in your chair to snuggle a bit.

A note from Roxy:
I am a sweet girl who is loyal to a fault. I love to go for walks and runs, but what I love most is protecting my family and my home. I can do some tricks for you and I love to train! I will let you know when someone is outside, but otherwise I'm fairly quiet.

Tekla, German shepherd mix

Gage, rottweiler mix
Gage is a handsome male rottweiler mix currently residing at All Breed Rescue & Training.
Gage loves children, dogs or cats. Good news: He is already house-trained, vaccinated and neutered.
A note from Gage:
I recently lost one of my legs and I am getting used to life as a tripod. My missing leg doesn't get me down, and I still enjoy playing fetch and going on short walks. I am working on walking nicely on a leash. I am super sweet and love to be loved by friends and strangers alike. I love to cuddle and share the bed.

Pearl, Saint Bernard mix
Pearl is an adorable female Saint Bernard mix being kept at All Breed Rescue & Training.
Pearl loves other dogs and cats, but she is looking for a home without small children. She's been vaccinated and spayed, and she has mastered her house-training etiquette.
Here's a note from Pearl:
I am a goofy, fluffy, slobbery girl who loves to play! I have so much energy and I need to be taught how to channel it properly. I am still a puppy at heart, so I can be jumpy and mouthy, but show me some boundaries and I will be at your service.
