Ella, Labrador retriever
Ella is a darling female Labrador retriever dog staying at Northwest Animal Companions.
Ella needs special time to bond with you: She'll need a home free of other dogs and cats. She does do well with kids.She is spayed, and she has had all her shots. She is already house-trained. Ella is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.
Here's what Ella's friends at Northwest Animal Companions think of her:
Every day is a great day for Miss Ella! She is a 10-year-old, 61-pounb lab who was found as a stray and ended up unclaimed in a local shelter. She has a great sense of humor, loves to chase the ball and go for car rides. Ella is ready to plop down next to her person, flash a big smile and enjoy life. She is on supplements to put some spring in her step and she is working on losing a few pounds. She does have some leash reactivity so will need an experienced adopter.

Timber, husky and cattle dog mix
Timber is a male husky and cattle dog mix being kept at Woofin Palooza, LLC.
Timber is happy to keep company with other dogs. He's already house-trained. He has been vaccinated and neutered.
Notes from Timber's caretakers:
Timber is an active guy. He is also a little jumpy — he was likely a stray so he is not used to being handled a lot or walking on a leash. He is going to be fine though — he just needs positive reinforcement training. Timber is very curious and does great with other dogs. He is around 45 lbs and is about two years old. He likes to bond to his immediate people and be left alone by strangers.

Eliza, Doberman pinscher mix
Eliza is a lovable female Doberman pinscher mix staying at Woofin Palooza, LLC.
Eliza loves other dogs. Her vaccinations are already up to date.
Notes from Eliza's caretakers:
This gal is a total goofball, but she does need obedience training. She jumps up, likes to be right in your face and has pretty much no manners so the adopter just needs to start from ground zero and the basics.
