Moe, miniature poodle
Moe is a male miniature poodle dog staying at My Way Home Dog Rescue.
No other pets please: Moe is looking for home without other dogs or cats. My Way Home Dog Rescue wants to place Moe in a home without small children. He has mastered his house-training etiquette. He's already vaccinated and neutered.
Here's what Moe's friends at My Way Home Dog Rescue think of him:
Moe obviously had a home at one time as he will let you know when he needs to go outside. He loves naps in his bed and naps in the sunshine on his foster family’s front porch. He also loves walks and will go a good mile at a nice pace. Moe does have a heart murmur and will need medicine for the rest of his life, but he has responded well to his meds! Moe’s perfect home would be a calm, low traffic home with a person who wants to share a movie and dinner.

Bo Peep, chihuahua
Bo Peep is a female chihuahua dog being cared for at Lancaster Four Dog Rescue, Inc.
Bo Peep plays well with others, and she's happy to keep company with children, dogs or cats. She's mastered her house-training etiquette. Her vaccinations are up to date.
Bo Peep's current caretakers say:
Bo Peep is a nine-year-old Chihuahua. She gets along with other dogs and likes gentle children. Bo peep is crate trained and she is a cuddle bug. Bo Peep has arthritis in her one knee and may require treatment in the future, but the rescue will help cover this cost. We would love to see her find her forever home — she is really just the sweetest girl you could ever meet!
