Baxter is happy to keep company with other dogs. Good news: He's already house-trained. He's already neutered, and he has had all his shots.

Here's what Baxter's friends at Smiling Dog Rescue think of him:

Baxter will sit nicely when you hold treats over his head and will catch them mid-air when you drop them... Baxter is very affectionate — he loves to come and check in with you and get loves and pets on a regular basis. When you walk by him, he rolls onto his back waiting for belly and chest rubs.

Smurf is a sweet male miniature poodle mix being cared for at Arizona Desert Rotti & Pals Rescue.

Smurf will get along great with your other dogs. His vaccinations are up to date, and he is neutered.

From Smurf's current caretaker:

Smurf is finally ready for his furever home. Smurf came to us with no fur on the lower half of his body. He was diagnosed with severe allergies. Changes in his diet and soothing baths healed his skin and he now has a full coat of fur. He has a wound on his neck that is still healing.. Smurf loves attention and people.

Dolly, miniature poodle mix

Dolly is a winsome female miniature poodle mix in the care of Arizona Desert Rotti & Pals Rescue.

Dolly is eager to make friends — she gets along well with other dogs. She has had all of her shots, and she is spayed.

Dolly's current caretakers say:

Miss Dolly came to us severely matted and covered with dried mud... The mud and matted fur acted like a cast on one leg and restricted circulation to the leg and paw. The mud and matts are gone and she has full use of all four legs. Dolly is slowly regaining trust in people. Dolly would love a soft bed and caring people.
