JANE (Calamity Jane)

3 yo Dutch Shepherd/Terrier Mix, 42#
Jane is a trainers dream and the life of any party. If she could be at your side all day long, she would never leave it. Jane is eager, active and adaptable. Great with people, but appropriately protective of your property and person. If you are interested in getting to dog sports, local search and rescue, or just want the perfect exercise companion, your search just ended! Our Jane is quite the catch. What to expect: Highlights: Jane is quick as a whip; she will keep you on your toes, both physically and mentally. She is eager to learn and creative - meaning a canine sport or aily, personal hobby (walking/jogging) will make you and Jane a happy pairing! Challenges: Structure will be key to her success in a home; she has great potential. We won't lie, she's stubborn, but always willing to work and is driven to make you happy. Cats?: No - Jane has a high prey drive - cats and ther small animals are a no go. Dogs?: Jane LOVES the few dog friends she has and is 0% safe with them (mostly male shepherds/huskies/etc). Kids?: We recommend kids 13 years or older. Jane is a wonderful player, but has high drive that is intimidating to small children. Dog park?: No - Jane is well suited for one on one play with close friends. She is not suited for public rambunctious play groups. Home protection: Yes - Jane will alert you when someone she doesn't know is near your car, home, yard, etc. She listens well and adapts to strangers quickly when you structure the greeting appropriately. She loves people. Play time: Fetch, tug, destroy the stuffed animal, and snuggle time on the couch after - she is sort of cat like in this regard.

3 yo German Shepherd Mix, 60#
“Girls just want to have fun”… that pretty much describes Zoey. She is bouncy, boisterous and fun. She LOVES to play – just about anything you want to play. An active lifestyle would be best. Highlights: Zoey needs consistency and companionship. She is not the type of dog Cats?: So far, yes, Zoey has been good with our cats! Not all cats will be ready for Zoey’s energy, but she loves to play. Dogs?: She has potential, right now we are recommending she be the only dog in the family. Kids?: She has lived with kids ages 5 & 11 – no history of issues. Dog park?: No – at this point she would not be suitable for public rambunctious play groups. Home protection: High. Zoey is loud when company approaches your property. She is friendly in public spaces and at the veterinarian. Play time: Go! Go! Go!
OAKLEY (Annie Oakley)
3 yo Border Collie Mix, 49#
Oakley was born to be a property protector - as most border collie/cattle dogs are. She loves to play fetch and stretch out those legs! One word to describe Oakley? Goofy. She is a joker and half the time when she looks at you she where's an expression of amusement. What to expect: Highlights: Oakley would learn to do ANYTHING you want to do: hiking, frisbee, jogging, dog sports. She is independent, but makes a highly attentive training partner - once you've earned it. She is the ideal companion for someone looking for a dog who has eyes for only them. She has lots of humans she loves, but in a home setting, he would be best suited for a home with a quiet human social calendar. Challenges: She is very warm and friendly with "her" humans. et their be no mistake, if you are in her inner circle, you are under her protection. In public, she is far less protective. She loves to go on walks and meander through Home Depot as your silent body guard. he won't bother passersby, but she's not interested in making friends on your outings. This is a quality you either want as a dog owner or don't; her protective nature is well manageable, but not something you change. Cats?: Oakley has a moderate prey drive - she would do well with cats who are confident but might tease and chase cats who aren't. Dogs?: Oakley LOVES dog friends and has dozens of them. She isn't a push over, but she is polite and accommodating to other dogs. Kids?: We recommend kids 13 years or older. Oakley can be a little anxious when there are too many humans moving around. Dog park?: Moderate - We are not big fans of large public play groups, they can be very hazardous. Oakley, however, could do well in these environments as long as the humans are attentive. Home protection: Yes - highly protective. We would recommend putting her up for visitors until proper greeting protocols are in place. She will never be friendly when someone outside the family just "pops in to say hi". Play time: Fetch, squeaky toys, chew on her bone and then a nap in the corner - she does enjoy her alone time.
