Topaz will get along great with your other dogs and cats. Her vaccinations are up to date, and she's spayed.
Here's what Topaz's friends at Furry Kids Refuge think of her:
Topaz is still shy with humans but does really well with other little dogs. She will require patience as puppymill breeder dogs are not shown love and affection during their life. Having someone love them is a whole new world to her! Topaz is on daily eye drops that she will need for the rest of her life.

Zorro gets along well with children, dogs or cats. He has been vaccinated and neutered.
From Zorro's current caretaker:
Sweet Zorro is an 8-month-old shepherd mix weighing 35 lbs. Zorro and his sister were found dumped by the Lake of the Ozarks and both are looking for their furever home. He plays great with his big foster brother and sisters. He would also do fine in a home by himself because he loves to snuggle and play fetch and he also can entertain himself. He is shy at first but warms up very quickly.
