Ripple, Australian shepherd
Ripple is a female Australian shepherd dog currently residing at The Foster Farm.
Ripple's ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Ripple has been vaccinated. She's mastered her house-training etiquette.
Here's more about Ripple::
She is crate-trained, house-trained, and extremely dog friendly and social. Ripple is incredibly smart and active, but is able to relax as well. Potential families must be involved in dog sports or willing to get started. A home with a fenced yard and another highly active dog would be ideal for this girl, but she would also do well with a family who travels often and takes her along. She is very friendly with kids, but due to her energy level and agility, kids ages 6 and older would be best for her.

Mozart, pit bull terrier
Mozart is a sweet male pit bull terrier dog currently residing at Humane Animal Rescue (North).
He is already neutered and vaccinated.
Here's more about Mozart:
This pup is a young and active dog. Mozart can be a little uncertain around new people, but bring treats and he will be your best buddy in no time. Mozart is still working on manners, but he is extremely treat motivated and has the potential to be amazing. Mozart walks wonderfully on a leash. Mozart would love an active home where he can have plenty of exercise with multiple walks every day, followed by snuggle sessions. Mozart is a cool dog who should be the only animal in a dog-savvy household.
