Patches

Age: Adult

Breed(s):American Pit Bull Terrier - Shar Pei Mix

Hello I am Patches, an 8 year old gorgeous girl with so much love to give. I love nothing more than cuddling with my foster mom or foster brothers ( an 8 year old rottie and an 8 year old beagle). I sit very nicely for treats and am very gentle taking one from foster mom's hand. I have no feeding aggression even if one of the other dogs comes to my bowl. I previously lived with a two year old who would take my bones away while I was chewing them so I would just go find another one. I also let her pile her toys on top of me while I was sleeping.

Fella

Age: Adult

Breed(s): Domestic Shorthair

Fella is an adult tabby boy who needs a lot of love and attention. He has recently come to us and is pretty nervous and scared of people. He takes a while to warm up, but once he gets to know you, he loves to get petted and have his face rubbed Fella's right eye and nose were scratched before he came to us and they're starting to heal up. The vet says it's not infected, so it just needs a little time and he should be good as new! Fella's new family will need to be patient and wait for him to warm up but they're sure to be rewarded with lots of purring.

Tiny

Age: Young

Breed(s):Whippet - Chihuahua Mix

Hi I'm Tiny! I am a 4 year old Whippet and Chihuahua mix who weighs about 6 lbs. I am TINY! Can you believe I have even put on some weight since coming into the shelter? They tell me that I need to put on a few more pounds, but I love treats so that shouldn't be a problem. I need a slow introduction to strangers, as I will bark and carry on for a while until I feel safe. After that, I will jump up into your lap and look for attention.
