Tater, shepherd and Pomeranian mix
Tater is a sweet female shepherd and Pomeranian mix being cared for at Furry Tales International Rescue Team.
Tater gets along well with cats and dogs. She has mastered her house-training etiquette. Tater is already spayed and vaccinated.
Here's more about Tater:
Tater adores her humans and will be the most loyal girl. She is fearful of men at this point, but this behavior can be modified with time and some correction. She gets quickly attached to the lady of the house and becomes protective. That’s why Tater will best fit with one female owner. She will also benefit from a fenced-in yard and a mommy that can spend most of the day with her.

Charlie, mixed breed
Charlie is a lovable male mixed breed dog being kept at PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society).
Charlie loves cats. No other dogs, please: He is looking for a dog-free forever home. Charlie would prefer a home without small children. He is vaccinated and neutered.
Here's more about Charlie:
Charlie can be a bit slow to warm up, and could use some more help adjusting to the world. He is nervous with new places and people, and wants a low-key home to settle in and snuggle. He needs someone to coach him through some confidence training and socialize him to any new people he meets. Charlie would prefer to be the only pup in a calm, adult-only home. He may be able to live with rabbits and cats, though.
