Our new dogs

4 of our 5 dogs have been placed in their new foster homes so they can adjust for a week or so before their training starts. So far we have Terrance, a little Chihuahua Beagle mix, Sadie, a little Chihuahua-Dachsund mix, Lewey, a Shepherd-Hound dog mix, and finally Shiloh, a shepherd mx. They all seem to be doing well. Shiloh is my foster and she needs a lot of confidence building with other dogs. She is very loving towards people and will love the kids as long as they are gentle with her. Check back soon for pictures. 

The kids are turning in their applications. They are required to fill out an application, read through and sign the guidelines form, and write a essay on what's important to them. I have them write an essay so I can see who is dedicated enough to do it but it also gives me an insight to them. I also hope it give them an insight to themselves.

Terrance is a sweet Beagle/Chihuahua mix. 

Jimmy a fun Chihuahua/Doxie mix. 

Tia is a young but lovable Shepherd/Blue Heeler mix (we think). 

Louie is a rather mellow lab/hound dog mix. 

Sadie is a very lovable Chihuahua/Daschund mix.
