Taz – 4-year-old boxer/American Staffordshire mix. I’m very friendly and love to give kisses, but not on the first date. I walk well on a leash and have some obedience training. I will be a good watchdog because I am protective of my family and house.Shanee – 6-year-old female black lab mix.

PuppiesHarley – 9-month-old shepherd mix. Super playful, obedient, loyal and smart. He was mistreated so can be untrusting of new people and situations.
