Shiloh, bloodhound and Labrador retriever mix
Shiloh is a charming female bloodhound and Labrador retriever mix currently housed at Helping Paws, Inc.
Her ideal forever home would be a dog-free environment. Shiloh is already spayed, and she has had all her shots. Fear not: She is already house-trained.
From Shiloh's current caretaker:
She's the sweetest girl around! She hasn't had the best experiences with other canine friends, so she will need to be the only dog. With proper training, she could learn to positively interact with other dogs. While she to work on some of her manners, she's a great cuddler and absolutely loves belly rubs!

Liz, pit bull terrier mix
Liz is a female pit bull terrier mix currently housed at Heaven After Hell Rescue.
Liz will get along great with other dogs. She's vaccinated and spayed.
Liz's current caretakers say:
I’m about 2 years old. I'm the smooshy-est faced, snorty-est, pittie princess around. While I love most people, some men terrify me. I'm ok with the dogs, but I play hard, so they need to be able to handle me. But I promise my snuggles are unmatched!

Birch, boxer mix
Birch is a handsome male boxer mix currently housed at Heaven After Hell Rescue.
Birch gets along well with other dogs but would do best in a home without small children. He has had all of his shots, and he is neutered.
From Birch's current caretaker:
I'm just one years old, super cute and have all the energy that comes with my breed. I love other dogs, but they need to be very playful to handle me! If you're an active owner with a fenced yard, you're a great match for me. I'd love to meet you!

Olive, pit bull terrier mix
Olive is a female pit bull terrier mix being kept at Sketchy Mutts and Underdogs.
Olive's ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment and without small children. She has been vaccinated and is house-trained. Also, she is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.
From Olive's current caretaker:
Olive is a happy, spunky girl who loves to be with her humans. She suffered a leg injury and never got adequate treatment. So, she has a pronounced limp, but that doesn't stop her from living her best life. However, she will require long-term pain medication. If you're a dedicated owner who wants a loving companion, she's you're gal!
