BashFeatured Dog: Bash

Super-friendly, lots of energy and really bright – that’s Bash! He loves meeting new people because he’s hoping one of them will take him home. The thought of having a real family is almost too much for him to handle. He’s gets giddy with excitement, wiggling and hopping around. Bash will make a great hiking or jogging buddy. And smart? He already understands sit and down. He is a nice mix of breeds, cattle dog and maybe basenji due to the curly tail.  He is a medium size dog.  Excellent on a leash.  He will need to be in a home without children.

Other available dogs:

Bugsy- Male young terrier blend. Lots of energy, he loves to play with toys.

Rosie- Female black and gray Border collie/cattle dog. Very bright and a quick learner. Full of energy she wants to please.

Patches- Female young  terrier/Dachshund. Very energetic although she can be a little shy.

BartFeatured Cat: Bart

Bart is a very handsome boy who is anxious to find his forever home. He has had a lot of recent changes in his life and is feeling pretty insecure. His owner moved and after having Bart for a number of years could not take him along. Bart will benefit from a quiet environment where he can adjust slowly with some love and encouragement.  He loves being petted and sitting quietly beside you. **I am a front paw declaw**
