Tobey is two years old and by far the friendliest little Chihuahua/Yorkie you will ever meet. His hair is tan/black with huge ears, and doesn’t shed at all. Tobey was found outside in the cold by a good Samaritan and was never looked for or claimed. He usually prances around because he’s so happy and loves going outside. Tobey looks forward to daily walks where he can sniff everything.

Georgia, American Staffordshire terrier and American bulldog mix
Georgia is a female American Staffordshire terrier and American bulldog mix in the care of Shamrock Pet Foundation Inc.
She's already house-trained. She is spayed and vaccinated.
Notes from Georgia's caretakers:
Georgia is an American Pitbull/American Bull dog and two years old. Georgia had been dumped in a known dumping area and most likely had been bred. Unable to turn her back on this brown eyed beauty, Georgia came home with this new buddy. Georgia had been saved. She needed extra vet care. Well, Georgia is feeling tip top and she's ready for her forever home. Georgia had to undergo emergency surgery for perimetria (spayed at this time) and she is almost done with her heartworm treatment. She feels brand new and she looks brand new.

Shay, American bulldog mix
Shay is a handsome male American bulldog mix being cared for at Saving Sunny, Inc.
His vaccinations are already up to date, and he's neutered. He's mastered his house-training etiquette.
Here's what Shay's friends at Saving Sunny, Inc think of him:
At around nine years old, Shay still has the energy to go anywhere and do anything his humans want to do or he is ready to kick back and and settle into the sofa if couch potato is your style. He has completed obedience training and is proof a senior dog has still got it. Shay has mixed feelings about dogs and tends to be selective. He prefers to be an only dog in the home, but he is happy to take a hike with friends and their dogs or go for a stroll in the park. He is good on leash and is comfortable being crated or left out at home.

Beauty, German shepherd
Beauty is a female German shepherd dog being kept at Tier Haven Rescue, Inc.
Her vaccinations are already up to date, and she's spayed.
From Beauty's current caretaker:
Beauty is a unique young black Shepherd likely no older than a year of age. Beauty came from a rural Kentucky shelter that did not offer any explanation of how she ended up at their shelter so we unfortunately know nothing about her history or how she came to be in need of a new home. She is a fun girl though and is happily looking for a family of her own. Beauty is best described as athletic, energetic and spunky. She can be weary when meeting new people and holds back until she deems them safe. Going for a walk and offering treats helps her loosen up. Once she has settled, Beauty is a loving and playful girl.

Scarlett, German shepherd
Scarlett is a charming female German shepherd dog currently residing at Tier Haven Rescue, Inc.
She's vaccinated and spayed.
Scarlett's current caretakers say:
Scarlett is an adorable young female believed to be around two to three years of age. Scarlett was picked up by animal control after her owners moved and left her in the back yard. She is now on track to gaining weight, learning about being a family member and finding a home of her own. Scarlett clearly hasn’t had lots of love in her life so she can be a bit hand shy when meeting new people.

Beau, chihuahua mix
Beau is a handsome male chihuahua mix currently housed at Chihuahua Rescue & Transport Inc.
Beau will get along great with your other dogs. He is looking for cat-free household. Beau is neutered and vaccinated.
Here's what Beau's friends at Chihuahua Rescue & Transport Inc. think of him:
Beau is a 10-pound black and white Chihuahua mix. He have beautiful black markings that look like hearts. He also have long lean legs. Once he feels safe with you, he loves to play with toys and other dogs, but then once playtime is over, he's the biggest snuggle bug ever. Beau is crate trained too. Beau's foster mom doesn’t think he'd be a good fit for someone who isn’t sturdy on their feet because he sometimes like to walk very close. Beau is intimidated by big dogs, so he must find a home with all small animals. Beau would be great as the only dog in the home as well and is working on potty-training
