Rusty, terrier and Australian cattle dog mix

Rusty is a handsome male terrier and Australian cattle dog mix being cared for at K-9 Lifesavers.

Rusty will get along great with your other dogs, but he is looking for cat-free household. No need to worry: He is already house-trained, vaccinated and neutered.

From his current caretaker:

This boy loves to run in the backyard, play with stuffed animals and be on the lookout sitting on his perch (on top of the hot tub cover) searching for strangers, squirrels, birds and whatever happens to walk by or breach the yard perimeter. He is timid with new people at first and will stand back and bark at them, but once he knows and trusts you, he is a sweet boy who loves attention.

Drake, Labrador retriever mix

Drake is a sweet male Labrador retriever mix being kept at K-9 Lifesavers.

Drake is the life of the party, and he loves other dogs. He is neutered and vaccinated.

Drake's current caretakers say:

Drake is an active pup who would do well in a home with a fenced yard where he can run and play. He's a sweet boy and lots of fun, but needs some training. He gets very enthusiastic when he sees people, so he will jump up to greet them and still has some pup mouthiness, so he may be too much for small children. He also needs some leash training.

Notes from Isabella's caretakers:

Isabella is a beautiful Great Dane but, unfortunately, was not well taken care of as you can see in her photos. She is very underweight. Isabella deserves to be in a loving, wonderful home so she will know what it's like to be healthy and happy.
