Adoption Event #1 – Meadow View Greenhouse

By |

We’re so happy to start classes back this fall! We’ll be outside at the beautiful Meadow View Greenhouse and Garden Center to meet our new “Fab 5” that will be participating in the fall 2021 class. They are looking for their forever homes! They will be starting classes on September 13th, so their skills will probably be minimal to start.

All dogs are medically screened, fully vaccinated, microchipped, on heartworm preventative, and will have basic obedience training at the end of their 4-week course. We are accepting applications and will work on home visits while classes are going on. All dogs will be able to go to their new homes on October 8th after graduation.

 

Fun-loving, white and brindle-brown hound mix. About 1 year old and 26lbs. Long and lanky hound legs to go with a sleek fur coat. She is a sweet soul.

Tan & black male Yorkie (full size), 10lbs, and between 3-6 years old. Moose is a very sweet boy (we could’ve spelled his name ‘Mousse’, he’s that sweet) and is a big fan of belly rubs.

Foxy and soulful reddish-brown and cream coated Aussie Cattle Dog mix. Weighs 32lbs and between 3-6 years old. She has a happy-go-lucky temperament, exudes calm energy and has excellent manners. She’s a big lap dog and everyone who has met her has loved her instantly!

She will steal your heart and maybe your man! Very sweet white and cream-coated Labrador retriever/Aussie/Pyrenees mix. Weighs 30lbs and around 1 year old. She’s young, bouncy, playful, and very sweet and shy all rolled into a cute package.

Happy-go-lucky and energetic. About 1 year old, 13lbs, and we believe him to be a tan and white Jack Russell mix. He’s been wonderful meeting the other dogs in our program.
