Stella, terrier mix

Stella is a female terrier mix in the care of K-9 Lifesavers.

Stella is eager to make friends. She's already spayed and vaccinated, and she has mastered her house-training etiquette.

Notes from Stella's caretakers:

Stella is one sweet lady. She loves grownups and kids of all sizes and loves to cuddle, snuggle and give kisses to all. She is gentle, friendly and eager to please. She is not crazy about other dogs, so if you have a nice, big fenced-in yard and like to hang out on the couch, this is the girl for you.

Gloria, bloodhound mix

Gloria is a winsome female bloodhound mix currently housed at K-9 Lifesavers.

Gloria will get along great with your other dogs, but she is looking for cat-free family. She is already spayed, and she has had all her shots.

Notes from Gloria's caretakers:

Gloria is a more curvy gal with lovely long ears. Being a bloodhound, her breed job is to sniff out critters. She would love a home and family to live out her life with.

Troop, Saint Bernard and American bulldog mix

Troop is a darling male Saint Bernard and American bulldog mix currently residing at K-9 Lifesavers.

Troop will get along great with other dogs. He is neutered, and he has had all his shots.

Notes from Troop's caretakers:

This big boy is the fluffiest cuddlebug. In addition to being so handsome, he is playful and will most likely need a large fenced yard to run around in. No apartments please.
