Max, Labrador retriever and pit bull terrier mix
Max is a male Labrador retriever and pitbull terrier puppy in the care of Last Hope K9 Rescue.
Max is friendly as can be — he's happy to keep company with other dogs. His vaccinations are up to date. No need to worry: He's 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.

Notes from Tucker's caretakers:
Tucker is very loving and attentive to his humans. He wants to please. He is very good riding in the car. He is a young dog that has a lot of energy. He loves to play fetch with his humans or go for a walk. Tucker has picked up commands of "sit", "stay", and "off" very quickly.

Carmela, American bulldog mix
Carmela is a sweet female American bulldog puppy being cared for at Last Hope K9 Rescue.
She is vaccinated.
Here's what Carmela's friends at Last Hope K9 Rescue think of her:
Carmela had a rough start and has developed into an amazing dog. She will do best in an active home or one that can send her to daycare during the work day. She has lots of energy to burn and loves other dogs and all humans. Whoever this girl gets as her family will be extremely lucky.
