Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello, I'm Tarzan :) I'm a handsome 3 year old boy looking for my forever family! I am fully house and crate trained and am highly ball motivated. I love balls of all varieties: tennis, rubber, squeaky. If you can throw it, I'll play fetch for hours! For a cookie, I will gladly show you how nicely I can sit as well as the other commands that I am still working on (like down, stay, heel, come, and wait). I have always been well-behaved in the car. In fact, if you look into the back you might see me practicing my surfing skills...even when the roads are rough, I can maintain my balance on all fours while I watch the scenery go by. Right now, ... (Read More)my favorite destinations are the local parks, where I can meet up with my doggie friends :) Off-leash, I love running and playing with other dogs. I'm a gentle giant who willingly shares toys and lets small dogs and puppies call the shots....which make me a popular play buddy! At home, I settle down quickly. I always enjoy playing with my people, but when they're busy I am a self-sufficient guy and can be content entertaining myself. Usually, I'll toss my toys around for a while, stretch out in some funny positions (doggie yoga), and then eventually curl up in one of my beds for a good long nap. My life has gotten so much better these past few months, but I still experience some anxiety when walking on leash in busy areas. Luckily, my foster mom recognized that this type of fearful reactivity is common for a former stray and she reached out to a behaviorist who is helping me learn to self-soothe, draw comfort and confidence from the human-dog relationship, and direct my energy towards safe, productive behaviors. If you would like to learn more about my training and/or help to finance it, please visit my online fundraiser at: http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/help-tarzan-get-the-training-he-needs-to-find-a-forever-home/158853#sthash.6Jy9tnXW.dpuf I like kids, but because I'm big and energetic, I'm looking for a home that doesn't have any kids under age ten. At heart, I am a sweet loving boy looking for a life long friend...could that be you???

    Mika is a very special dog, and we are looking for a special person or family to give her a permanent home of her own.

Please read through her entire profile to see if maybe your home is the one she's been looking for. Mika is a 6 year old, 40 pound, well mannered and friendly girl. She is a mix- we think maybe hound and pit bull, definitely 100% pure sweetness. She likes to go for walks, ride in the car, and of course hang out on the couch. She is loving the warm weather, and likes to roll in the grass and soak up the sun. ... (Read More) She loves people, and is really wonderful with kids. Mika has great house manners, is fully housebroken, and is crate trained. She's already spayed, vaccinated, and chipped- basically ready to move right into her new home. However, Mika also has some special needs: * Mika is not a fan of other dogs or of cats, so she is looking for a home where she can be the only pet and soak up all the love and belly scritches for herself. * Mika has a hard time transitioning to a new home. Once she settles in she's fantastic, but we are looking for a family who understands and commits to the idea of providing the leadership and structure that she needs to feel secure. Ideally, her new owners would be experienced with pit bulls or other strong (and strong-minded) breeds. Fortunately, Mika has made so many friends that she comes with a scholarship for free private lessons for her and her lucky new owners! * Mika's perfect home will be in a quiet neighborhood with some land and space, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We know that there is a person or family out there who will be a great match for this sweet dog. If you're looking for a great family pet or a special dog friend just for you, Mika may be your girl!
