Max, Labrador retriever and pit bull terrier mix
Max is a charming male Labrador retriever and pitbull terrier puppy currently residing at Last Hope K9 Rescue.
Max will get along great with other dogs. He's vaccinated. Have no fear: He is already house-trained.
Notes from Max's caretakers:
Max is a playful boy who is looking for a family prepared to train him to be the best dog he can be. He is a typical puppy who hasn't had much training in his short life so far, so he will need to work on his manners. Max is friendly with other dogs and although curious about cats, has never tried to chase them.

Kole K, Labrador retriever mix
Kole K is a male Labrador retriever puppy currently residing at Last Hope K9 Rescue.
Kole K is ready to make friends — he'll get along great with your other dogs. He's vaccinated.
Kole K's current caretakers say:
Kole is a very sweet boy who loves to cuddle on the couch and just be near his people. Kole is very shy at first, and takes some time to start to break out of his shell so would love a family willing to be patient with him. Kole would like a yard to run around in with a big fence because he is very tall and agile.

Oliver, Canaan dog mix
Oliver is a male Canaan dog puppy currently housed at Last Hope K9 Rescue.
Oliver gets along well with kids, dogs or cats. He has been vaccinated.
From Oliver's current caretaker:
Oliver is a mild-mannered lover and perfect gentleman. He wants to be a lap dog but is still young and has typical shepherd needs so he wiggles. After playtime with children or just a game of fetch he is ready to settle and cuddle. Oliver has lived with an over the top toddler so noise is not an issue.
