Jake, rottweiler and Labrador retriever mix

Jake is a lovable male rottweiler and Labrador retriever mix being cared for at Waldo's Muttley Crew.

Jake is friendly as can be — he gets along well with other dogs. No need to worry: He is already house-trained. He has had all of his shots, and he's neutered.

Here's what Jake's friends at Waldo's Muttley Crew think of him:

Jake's love of people is obvious to all! Just look at his big brown eyes; they say "Love me & pet me!" He's a rottweiler/lab with a smidge of Australian Shepherd in him; but don't expect the aloof Rottie personality from this handsome boy! He's got pure lab personality in his happy-go-lucky demeanor and joy of life.  Although active & energetic, requiring a fenced in yard in his new home, Jake settles down and cuddles on the sofa ... and if you have popcorn, it's an added bonus!

I am sweet and playful and a very calm and relaxed dog. When I want your attention, I lean up against you but I am patient until you can pay attention to me. I love to run and play in my fenced yard with my sister Lexy.

Misty, shepherd and hound mix

Misty is a female shepherd and hound mix being cared for at Helping Paws, Inc.

Misty gets along well with other dogs. She is looking for cat-free family. She already has had all of her shots, and she is spayed. She has mastered her house-training etiquette.

Here's what Misty's friends at Helping Paws, Inc. think of her:

Meet Misty, a one-year-old Shepherd/Hound/possible Shar Pei mix. She's a very sweet girl and loves to cuddle and get as much attention from people as possible. She loves to play with her squeaky toys and her foster siblings. She gets along great with other dogs, but she will chase cats every chance she gets, so a home without cats would probably be best. Misty does well with older kids, but may be a little too much for smaller children. Do you have room in your heart for this sweet little girl that just wants your love?

Hey there, my name is Harvey. I am a 4-year-old black lab that weighs 70 pounds. I am ready for my furrever home where I will get lots and lots of love!
