Juju, Yorkshire terrier and Cairn terrier mix
Juju is a sweet male Yorkshire terrier and Cairn terrier mix being cared for at The Pet Knot.

From Juju's current caretaker:
[Juju] is a friendly and happy little lap dog.

Dolly is a winsome female chihuahua dog currently housed at Medical Animals In Need (M.A.I.N.).
Dolly is happy to keep company with other dogs. Good news: She is already house-trained. She is vaccinated and spayed.
Notes from Dolly's caretakers:
[Dolly] is content to cuddle and to simply be your shadow. Dolly came to MAIN in terrible condition after being hit by a car. She’s been through a lot, having had two casts for most of her recovery. No matter what though, she’s been super sweet right from the beginning.

Piper, Labrador retriever and Australian cattle dog mix
Piper is a female Labrador retriever and Australian cattle dog mix in the care of The Pet Knot.
Piper wants to be your one and only: She will need a home free of other dogs, cats and children. Good news: She is already house-trained. She is vaccinated and spayed.
Here's what Piper's friends at The Pet Knot think of her:
Piper is a very well-behaved five-and-a-half-year-old cattle dog mix. We have had her with other dogs from the beginning but her dominant behavior has caused some issues... She does well on a harness lead and loves to be on hikes.

Pepe, chihuahua and papillon mix
Pepe is an adorable male chihuahua and papillon mix currently housed at The Pet Knot.
Pepe will get along great with your cats and dogs. The Pet Knot, however, recommends he be placed in a home without small children. Pepe is already neutered, and he has had all his shots. No need to worry: He is already house-trained.
Here's what Pepe's friends at The Pet Knot think of him:
He was surrendered due to the German shepherd in the home wanting to eat him. He is definitely a dominant little dog and I'm sure that is why the big shepherd didn't like him... He does tend to "mark" at first in new environments.

Meggy, Labrador retriever and German shepherd mix
Meggy is a darling female Labrador retriever and German shepherd mix being kept at Mayday Pit Bull Rescue & Advocacy.
Meggy will get along great with other dogs. Meggy is spayed and vaccinated. Have no fear: She is already house-trained. Meggy is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.
More from Meggy:
I'm blind, but that obviously doesn't hamper my ability to be happy and have fun. I just bump into things sometimes. My playing skills are top notch, almost as good as my snuggling skills. And if you combine those two you'll understand how Im such a good wrestler with my dog friends.

Felicia, pit bull terrier
Felicia is a female pit bull terrier dog staying at Mayday Pit Bull Rescue & Advocacy.
Felicia loves other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Mayday Pit Bull Rescue & Advocacy, however, recommends she be placed in a home without small children. No need to worry: She is already house-trained. Her vaccinations are up to date, and she's spayed. Felicia is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.
From Felicia's current caretaker:
[Felicia] is a happy, goofy, playful and affectionate girl. She may take a minute getting to trust you as humans were not very kind to her previously... Being her owner will have some challenges, but they will be well worth the effort of gaining her love and trust.
Apply to adopt Felicia today at Petfinder.
