My name is Vegas and I'm about the cutest little thing you ever saw. I'm only about four months old (as of June 4, 2011) and am already potty trained. It was really easy for me to learn. My brother and sister are potty trained as well. We were at a high kill shelter when my foster mommy saw an emergency email about us. She saved our lives ten minutes before they were going to kill us.

Rusty, greyhound mix
Rusty is a male greyhound mix being kept at Puppy Love Rescue of Charlotte, Inc.
Rusty is neutered, and he has had all his shots. Have no fear: He is already house-trained.
Notes from Rusty's caretakers:
My name is Rusty, and I am an adorable brindle Greyhound/Pitbull who doesn’t meet a stranger. I was found emaciated as a baby and was real sick because I had gone so long without food. My foster mommy took me in, fed me some good food, took me to the doctor and now I’m all better again. I thrive on attention and believe that people exist just to love and play with me.

Twirl is a three year old Labrador Retriever/Terrier mix who weighs about 60 pounds. She is a special girl and a gentle soul, except around squirrels, which she loves to chase. Twirl is good around children and other people, however, she would prefer to be the Queen of her castle and not share with other animals.
