Krystal, shepherd mix
Krystal is a winsome female shepherd puppy being kept at Last Hope K9 Rescue.
Krystal is a social animal, and she gets along well with other dogs. She has had all her shots.
Her current caretakers say:
Krystal is a joy. She is super chill, sweet, likes to be brushed and loves a good nap. She likes to be physically near her person, and just tends to melt when you scratch behind her ears. She will sit on command (mostly when a treat is offered), and would likely be easy to train with other commands.

Toby Terrier, terrier mix
Toby Terrier is an adorable male terrier puppy in the care of Last Hope K9 Rescue.
Toby Terrier will get along great with your children, dogs or cats. He is vaccinated.
From his current caretaker:
Toby is a very affectionate, big, scruffy terrier mix. He is good with other dogs and has been passive with cats. He has a very laid-back personality. Toby would enjoy a yard or place to run and exercise, but would also do well with someone who will take him on walks to exercise.

Star, pit bull terrier
Star is a darling female pit bull terrier puppy currently residing at Last Hope K9 Rescue.
Star loves other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. She has had all of her shots.
Notes from her caretakers:
Star is a small, young pit bull mix who is sweet and loves to play now that she's learned what toys are. Star would love a home with dogs around for her to play with after slow introductions, but without cats or small animals. She would do best around older children because ' strong, and small children might get accidentally knocked over.
