Velma, pit bull terrier
Velma is a sweet female pit bull terrier dog being kept at Woofin Palooza, LLC.
Velma plays well with others, and she gets along well with other dogs. Good news: She is already house-trained. She's vaccinated.
Here's what Velma's friends at Woofin Palooza, LLC think of her:
Velma is brand new to our rescue and is still being evaluated for behavior. What we can tell you so far is that she is sweet with people and will need obedience training and a good routine. While Velma is in our care we will be working on leash training, walking on an easy walker, ability to be handled and socialization.

Rambo is happy to keep company with other dogs. He's already house-trained. He is neutered, and he has had all his shots.
From Rambo's current caretaker:
Rambo is a sweet, loving guy. He is a little selective with dogs and we have no idea how he would do with cats. He is looking for his forever home that will give him unconditional love and training.

Charlie is a darling male Chiweenie dog in the care of Woofin Palooza, LLC.
Charlie loves other dogs. Charlie is looking for a home without small children. He is vaccinated.
Charlie's current caretakers say:
Charlie is a little feisty guy. He gave our bathers quite the run around and was a bit of a bully. But he did not win and he will need an adopter that will be firm patient and consistent. He is not neutered and with the ban on non elective surgeries, it's going to be a while. He just came in so we are confident with some time and precious handling that he will be the perfect companion for someone. He is small at 10 pounds and is approximately 2 years old.
