Name: Vivian

Gender: Female

Age: Born April 15 2017

Approx.size/weight when full grown: 50-60 lbs Medium height

Breed: Pitbull Mix

History: Vivian is a funny, goofy, loving dog. She frequently falls to the ground and squirrels around on her back and is happy to receive all belly rubs. She wants to greet all people on her walks or otherwise which can make walks a challenge. She likes to chase toys but not bring them back. We are working to help her with her fear of other dogs. Due to her severe reaction to other animals She would need to be the only pet. All this silly girl wants to do is be curled up in your lap. When she gets excited she tends to use your mouth to play so she would not be a fit for a family with young kids

Adoption status: Available

She is also looking for a foster home

Name: Eclipse
Gender: Female
Age: Sept 1 2016
Approx.size/weight when full grown: 8 lbs Medium height
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
History: Eclipse loves to cuddle. She is a bit shy and takes a little to check new people, places and sounds out. She is quick to become affectionate especially if you offer her a soft plush blanket and a good movie. She will be cuddling in no time! Since Eclipse has gotten her Dental work, we have noticed some chances in behavior, and in a good way! She is more playful, adventurous and now isnt having accidents as long as her food is soft for her jaw. She would make a great addition to a family that has children as she loves to cuddle the kids at night, however a home expecting a baby or planning on children might not be the best because she LOVES to cuddle so much. She loves to play hunt with her mice toys and did I mention soft plush blankets are her favorite to cuddle with.

Eclipse suffers from a condition called “Tooth Resorbtion” a common condition in cats where the teeth start being reabsorbed into the gums. She has already had one dental and some problem teeth pulled along with many xrays of her mouth. However this condition will continue to cause problems through her life and she will require more dental surgeries during her lifetime. It has also been discovered that Eclipse has a condition called Mycoplasma Felis. Mycoplasma infection is caused by a type of bacteria that acts as a parasite in the blood, causing anemia and other signs of infection. The bacteria are present in most environments. Most healthy animals will experience little to no symptoms, but the very young or old or those with immune disorders may have severe anemia and other signs of infection. Mycoplasma commonly causes respiratory symptoms like bronchitis and pneumonia, but can cause infection in other parts of the body as well. This sadly also is a life long condition. We fear our lovely Eclipse will never find a home with all her medical conditions but hopefully she finds her perfect person.
