Our professional trainers carefully select our dogs

Pink is a 1 year old terrier mix and weighs about 30 lbs. She loves to play with other dogs and although she is initially a bit shy with people she has never met, she enjoys affection and is quite sweet. She would do best in a home with another small confident, playful dog and with a couple or single person who has retired from work or working from home. She enjoys car rides and regular outings which currently include a 3 mile walk several times a week.
Gus is Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu mix approximately 2 years old. He is sweet and friendly and a tad bit shy in new environments. He enjoys playing with other dogs, but always has one eye on his person. He's housebroken and healthy.
