Lilo, German shepherd and Australian kelpie mix
Lilo is a lovable female German shepherd and Australian kelpie mix staying at The Pet Knot.
She has mastered her house-training etiquette. She already has had all of her shots, and she is spayed.
Notes from Lilo's caretakers:
This sweet puppy is looking for love! She is a friend to both cats and dogs but sometimes timid around new people. She'll give you a wide-eyed look and warm up within minutes. She's not yet used to walking on a leash and will need someone dedicated to continuing her training.

Ceelo, shar-pei and dachshund mix
Ceelo is a male shar-pei and dachshund mix being kept at Rockstar Canine Rescue & Sanctuary.
He's already house-trained. Also, he is already vaccinated and neutered.
Here's what Ceelo's friends at Rockstar Canine Rescue & Sanctuary think of him:
Ceelo is a compact bundle of puppy-energy and gets along great with people, kids and other dogs. Since he's still in puppy mode, we recommend keeping shoes and remotes out of sight. While he's terrified of going on walks and car rides, we think he can overcome these fears with patience and nurturing. If you think you're a good match for Ceelo, complete an online application.

Nessie, rat terrier mix
Nessie is a female rat terrier mix in the care of Home Fur Good Animal Rescue.
She is already spayed, and she has had all her shots.
Notes from Nessie's caretakers:
Nessie is on the shy side and weighs just nine pounds. Her life was turned upside down when she ended up at the county shelter. To help her better adjust to our site, we placed another small dog in her kennel. And, so far, it's working! She watches her doggie friends and will follow right behind them. With a little patience and lots of love, she will be your bestie.
