Maverick, rottweiler and German shepherd mix

Maverick is a male rottweiler and German shepherd mix currently housed at Southern Nevada Shetland Sheepdog Club.

He already has had all of his shots, he is neutered, and he's mastered his house-training etiquette.

Here's what Maverick's friends at Southern Nevada Shetland Sheepdog Club think of him:

Maverick is a great dog. He doesn't want to share his person with another dog. He is not aggressive about it in any way. He wants to be by your side. He has done well with all we have done with him, but we feel he did not get a lot of outings on his own because he gets nervous at first with each new outing, but will settle pretty quickly. He was with kids and did great. He does good with the other dogs, just doesn't want to share his owner at home.

Layla, Australian shepherd

Layla is a winsome female Australian shepherd dog being kept at Wagging Tails Rescue.

Layla loves being around people, and she would do great in a home with kids. 

Here's what Layla's friends at Wagging Tails Rescue think of her:

Layla came to us after not getting along with the senior dog in her home. She has done well with all of the dogs she has met while with us and seems to enjoy having someone to play with. She is instantly friendly with every person she meets too.
