Libby, German shepherd and beagle mix

Libby is a female German shepherd and beagle mix being cared for at Judy's Forgotten Jewells.

She likes to socialize — she gets along well with children, dogs and cats. She's mastered her house-training etiquette. She is already spayed and vaccinated.

Notes from Libby's caretakers:

Meet Libby! After she was found abandoned in a ditch, she was brought to Judy's and is thriving now. Despite the neglect she experienced, she is so loving toward every person and animal she meets. Open your heart and home to Libby.

Marshall, Labrador retriever mix

Marshall is a male Labrador retriever mix currently residing at Needy Paws Rescue.

He has mastered his house-training etiquette and is crate-trained. He is neutered and vaccinated. Also, he's currently receiving heart worm treatments and has some activity restrictions. 

Here's what Marshall's friends at Needy Paws Rescue think of him:

This social animal is happy to keep company with other dogs. He can be picky about food and toys, so we think he'll do best with children over the age of 10. He loves to cuddle, looking out the window and being called a good boy! If you're looking for a gentleman, Marshall is your guy!

Gemma, pit bull terrier mix

Gemma is an adorable female pit bull terrier mix in the care of Needy Paws Rescue.

Gemma plays well with others, and she gets along well with other dogs. She needs a home without young children. Have no fear: She is already house-trained, spayed and vaccinated.

Notes from Gemma's caretakers:

I'm a happy-go-lucky Pitbull mix. At one years old, I've got energy to burn, and I have a blast running through the backyard with my four-legged foster siblings. But what I would love most is snuggling with you (after we've gotten to know each other of course!). If you've got a backyard or like to go on regular walks, please make me the newest member of your family.

Waffle, German shepherd mix

Waffle is a lovable male German shepherd mix currently residing at All Paws Safe Haven.

His vaccinations are already up to date. He is undergoing heart worm treatments and will be ready for adoption in just a few months.  

Notes from Waffle's caretakers:

Are you more of a breakfast person? Waffles here will satisfy your sweet tooth! He's a bit shy but quick to warm up! Underneath the shyness, he's a sweet snuggle bug ready to shower you with kisses. At only 9 months old, he's got that puppy energy. If you're a loving family with another playful pup, add Waffles to the mix for a full house.
