Charlie was rescued from a really bad situation; he was covered in fleas; his coat was stained in urine and he had no manners. He was taken in and given the best life ever. Charlie now knows all of his commands and walks well on a leash. He's intelligent and learns very fast, especially when it comes to fun tricks. Charlie is a happy-go-lucky little boy who just wants to cuddle and kiss you. He loves kids and adults and is obsessed with playing fetch.

She is very people-oriented and has a loving, attentive disposition. Joyce has also been fine with other dogs in our play groups.

Ellie, terrier and pit bull terrier mix
Ellie is an adorable female terrier and pit bull terrier mix currently housed at Cleveland Animal Care and Control.
Ellie is already house-trained. She is spayed, and she has had all her shots. Ellie is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.
Ellie's current caretakers say:
Ellie would love for you to rub her jelly belly! This low-key rider is all about love. She is incredibly sweet and basks in any attention she receives. Ellie is on the calm side and very affectionate; she loves to give hugs and kisses. Ellie also knows how to sit and takes treats gently. Unfortunately, Ellie arrived at the kennel heart-worm positive, but the good news is that this is a treatable disease, and the kennel covers the cost of treatment. Ellie just needs to find the right home where she can be kept on a rest period for a while so she can recover before getting back to normal life, which means extra time for snuggles.
