Roquelle, pit bull terrier and mastiff mix
Roquelle is a female pit bull terrier and mastiff mix being cared for at Fishtails Animal Rescue.
Roquelle wants all your attention: She'll need a home free of other dogs, cats and kids. Good news: She's already house-trained. Her vaccinations are up to date, and she is spayed.
Here's more about Roquelle:
This pup lives for love, and will give you all the snuggles and cuddles. She absolutely loves walks, and has quite a bit of pep in her step at 10 years old. She sleeps through the night and is a very good napper. She is very house-trained and does her best not to urinate in the home. Roquelle is not reactive to other dogs on walks. We think she will do best in a lower-energy home, though.

Mila, shepherd mix
Mila is a winsome female shepherd mix currently housed at Furry Tales International Rescue Team.
Mila is ready to make friends — she loves cats, dogs and children. Good news: She is already house-trained. She's already spayed, and she has had all her shots.
Here's more about Mila:
Meet sweet girl, Mila. She is very human-oriented, active, curious and playful. At just over a year old, she is very tender and affectionate. Mila is cautious around strangers, but when you start petting her, she immediately goes to her back for belly rubs. The ideal family for Mila would be active owners with kids.

Sheila, Australian cattle dog
Sheila is a winsome female Australian cattle dog dog being cared for at Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association, Inc.
She's already house-trained. Sheila is spayed, and she has had all her shots.
Here's more about Sheila:
This pup is about two years old, and she's house-trained, crate- trained and knows her basic commands. She also walks well on a leash, but she could use work with her recall and social skills. She is a bit insecure and takes a while to warm up to new people. Due to her high energy, she would do much better as an only dog with no cats and children. Sheila just loves fetching a ball and playing Frisbee. She would make an excellent sporting dog or just a good companion in an active environment.
