Meet Blue. Blue is an 8 month old American bulldog mix. If you are an active family looking for a dog that you can take everywhere, Blue is your boy! Blue has not meet a stranger, everyone is his friend. He loves to play, run, and is highly treat motivated. He would be a great running partner. He does great with other dogs and reads them well. We believe he wouldn't be great with cats initially but could learn. He is just all puppy and tries to play with everyone. He would likely scare the cats by being overbearing. Blue is deaf and does not know hand signals. He is also lacking some manners (mouthy, jumps up). However, Blue is still a puppy. He wants to learn. He wants to please but really needs someone that will give him an outlet for his energy. Once he calms down he loves snuggles and affection he just tends to get over excited and licks and nibbles for attention. He is fully vetted and neutered. All he needs is the perfect loving home to teach this boy the good life. show less

Meet Big Boy Bo. He is a 2 1/2 yr old 164lb Great Dane. Bo is a very sweet boy, gets along with all other dogs, and good with cats. He backs away from dominant dogs and is non confrontational. Even as good as he is, Bo is not a Dane for just anyone. He has specific requirements. 1- Bo is very growly and nervous meeting new people and going to new places. He takes a couple of days to adjust to his people and start trusting. He does not try to bite but he does grumble. 2- with his fears, until he is used to you, he will run. So, he needs a home with a 6ft fence. 3- Bo has the looks that make you want to take that dog everywhere and show him off, but he doesn't have that personality. He will need a family committed to working with a trainer and building his confidence before venturing out to public places. He may never be that dog, you need to be willing to accept that. 4- Bo has allergies. While they are currently under control with a grain free salmon based food and sprays for his feet (grass allergies), at any point he could require cytopoint injections or apoquel. These can be costly. While we strongly believe Bo can overcome some of his nervousness, it is going to take time, training, and patience. He does get better the more he trusts his people. So patience and willingness to accept Bo for who he is will be key. show less

Giovanna is between 3-5yrs old Cane Corso and is appx 90lbs. She is currently being fostered with our trainer and learning some manners about being a well-rounded family member. Jojo is learning very quickly and getting along well with the other dogs in the foster home. She is showing some resource guarding with other dogs and does show some with people for high value items (meaty bones, special treats, etc). The trainer is working with her on this. Due to complications from her spay surgery, her training was delayed, but she is right back on track with training. Jojo must go to a family who has experience with the corso breed or other similar breeds with guarding tendencies. Giovanna "Jojo" is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations. She also has had gastropexy (tacking the stomach) done. show less

Meet Gorgeous Gracie Mae! She is a 2 year old Red nosed Pitbull mix. We do not know what she is mixed with but it sure is beautiful! Gracie came into rescue with her puppies and all of her puppies have found forever homes. But, poor Gorgeous Gracie is still looking for hers. She LOVES to snuggle and get affection. While she is amazing with kids, she also gets super protective of them. So, we think she would be best without young kids. Gracie needs a family that will be consistent and have clear boundaries. She is a great girl but boundaries teach her to wait and watch her people instead of guessing what she should do next. She is good with other dogs but can be reactive when first meeting. As soon as you correct her, she responds well. She does have interest in smaller animals, so another dog her size or bigger suits her better. Gracie loves to snuggle her foster brother and play with him. Gracie is also good off leash when taught her space boundaries. show less

Meet Lily. Lily is a 2 1/2 yr old Dane mix . She was born in our rescue, returned twice for no fault of her own. Poor Lily doesn't understand how she can be so unlucky when she is the sweetest and most loving girl you will meet. Lily is being fostered with her rowdy look a like sister and loves snuggling Luna. But when Luna gets crazy, Lily just watches. Lily is coming out of her shell, showing her lovable side, and slowly playing with the other dogs. She definitely has no idea why she can't find her true forever home. Lily needs a few vaccines updated but is already spayed. Are you this sweet girl's forever family? show less

Yeti is a three and a half year old, foot and a half wide Great Pyrenees. He is a great lover of the outdoors, and will tolerate some inside time but isn't about being walled in by the man, man. What Yeti really loves is birds. Turkeys, chickens, guineas, he wants to guard them all. He also likes to herd small animals like children, sulky teenagers are fine. Rated PG and above for potential tsunami drool and tail force. With typical Great Pyrenees respect for boundaries, Yeti does need a fence and respects electric fencing best. He knows sit, shake, leave it, and has a super friendly personality. Yeti needs a job. Are you the right employer? show less
