Saber, mastiff

Saber is a darling female mastiff dog currently housed at Mutts and Runts Rescue.

Saber loves cats. Her ideal forever home would be a dog-free environment. Saber is spayed, and she has had all her shots. Have no fear: She is already house-trained.

Here's what Saber's friends at Mutts and Runts Rescue think of her:

Saber is a 3 year old mastiff. She listens to commands well (sit and down), walks well on a leash and she has energy but an overall calm and chill demeanor. She likes cats and she’s great with people and kids. Saber’s owner thinks she would need to be an only dog.

Saul, schipperke and chihuahua mix

Saul is a sweet male schipperke and chihuahua mix currently residing at H.A.L.T. (Helping Animals Live Tomorrow).

Saul is happy to keep company with children, cats or dogs. Good news: He is already house-trained. He has been vaccinated and neutered.

Saul's current caretakers say:

If you are looking for a mature, quiet dog, meet Saul! He is a great companion dog and loves to enjoy his person through lap naps. Saul is approximately 4 years old and was an owner surrender. He would like nothing better than to find a home once again. Saul is housebroken and well mannered. He is not high maintenance and fits in wherever he is. Saul does not require extensive exercise and would make a perfect pet for a senior person.

Willis, German shepherd mix

Willis is a darling male German shepherd mix currently residing at H.A.L.T. (Helping Animals Live Tomorrow).

Willis gets along well with other dogs. Willis is neutered, and he has had all his shots. He has mastered his house-training etiquette.

Here's what Willis' friends at H.A.L.T. (Helping Animals Live Tomorrow) think of him:

Willis is a young, eager and very good boy. When we first brought him to the rescue he was a bit unsure, but he has built his confidence and has proven himself as a friendly and happy fellow. Willis likes to play and toys are a plus. He will entertain himself with a ball. He enjoys the outside so a yard would be a plus. Quality time with his new person would also be a plus. Willis does need practice on a leash—he does well but somehow likes to get between your legs so this is an area he will need to practice in. We are unsure of Willis and cats. Willis has a kind spirit and deserves a loving forever home.

Toby, dachshund mix

Meet Toby! He's a long haired Dachshund mix, about 2 years old. Toby is a sweet boy who loves children and gets along with all sorts of animals, including turtles. He loves walks and already knows how to use a doggy door.
