Age: Young

Breed(s): American Shorthair & Domestic Short Hair mix

Buddy is approximately 2 years old, and when you pat him, you notice right away how soft his fur is. Buddy lost his home along with the other cats in his house when his previous owners moved and left them all behind. A neighbor was feeding him and wanted to keep him, but they already had too many cats. They bought him a nice fluffy bed to keep warm in, and that goes with him to his new home. He is a sweet guy who lives up to his name. He is not shy, but he can be a little unsure at first in new situations. However, he comes right out to investigate after a minute or two.

Amber Mina

Age: Young

Breed(s): Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Amber is a super sweet brindle pit bull mix. We estimate her age to be between 1-2 years old, and her amber colored eyes will make you melt. Although she was found as a stray, her spirits are high and she has a great attitude! She is a ball of energy, super-exuberant and eager to please! She can be shy sometimes but absolutely adores people. She loves attention and will not stop until you notice and pet her. If she is not sticking her head out the window during car rides then she is busy giving you kisses.

She loves to be with you and will be by your side during every trip around the house. She is great with kids and will tolerate their tough love as long as she can return with licks and kisses, but loves chasing cats so it would be best if she was in a cat-free home. She will make a great companion as the only pet in the home or with another furry friend as long as there's proper introduction. Dog parks are a little too much for her at this point.

Amber is receiving private professional training from Doggone Obedience. If you chose to adopt her, Doggone Obedience will continue to offer FREE training just for you and her! Check out this video to see her progress, and for more videos feel free to contact us. Amber is very smart and learns commands very quickly. She already knows place commands, heel, come, sit, paw, lay, drop it, and leave it. Like any sporting breed, she needs a forever home committed to continued training. She is well on her way to being the most obedient pup around!

Breed(s): Chihuahua Mix

Nani is a super sweet Chihuahua, is about 1.5 years old, and weighs just under 10lbs. She is quiet and timid, seeking out attention from her foster mom but shying away when attention is given to her from others. Nani loves cheese and she's fine around other dogs. She is a super snuggler and prefers to spend her days on the couch wrapped in a blanket. At night she will burrow under the covers to keep warm. But she also loves to be outside and unlike the typical chihuahuas, she will run out to the back yard every time "outside" is offered to her! She walks very nicely on a leash and is a great companion! She's also already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.

Edie is a very sweet purebred Boxer that was found as a stray. She obviously had a home at some point, as she is housetrained and knows to sit on command. Her face is very gray, and a vet estimated her to be around 10 years old, but she acts like a much younger dog! She is a little peanut of a Boxer at only 41 pounds, but she needs to gain a little weight.

Edie is already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots. She likes to play with dogs of all sizes! She is very curious about cats, but is trustworthy with them. Edie is also great with people—she loves hanging out with both children and adults! She would be a great dog for both a family or single person.
