Buster
male


Meet Buster, and what a guy!  Buster is nearly 9 years old, but still has some puppy left in him that he is happy to display from time to time.  Buster is a Velcro dog and LOVES to ride in the car.  He is OK on a leash.  He knows his commands and it took him a while to let us know that he knows them- he is a really smart boy!  He wants to be with you 100% of the time, but when left alone he is not in the least destructive.  He has perfect house manners and doesn't get on the furniture or into the garbage (unless you leave the garbage bin open and at his level.) Buster is ever curious and easily distracted by whatever is happening beyond his visual range.  Due to his age few or no stairs to climb would be great - his hip bothers him somewhat and the time will eventually come when climbing the stairs will be a problem.  He is very food motivated, but does not beg at the table.  He loves people and can get excited (never jumps, however).  Buster would like to be an only dog due to his love of people and past life which was far from good.

Winter
AKA
Maddie
female
Winter, AKA Maddie, came into rescue 18 months ago after spending her whole life as a breeder dog in a puppy mill. She came full of fears and spent most of her time in her crate. Gradually she's been coming out of her shell with the help of her dog siblings. She LOVES to take walks - as long as another dog is with her. She has completed 2 sessions of nose class - her favorite thing to do! She now enjoys hosting human company and lets everybody pet her. She has even started going to Petsmart with her dog brother. Winter seems to prefer men to women , so a home with a man in it would be great. She must have another dog to live with; preferably mature and not a goofy puppy.Winter is a quiet, sweet, gentle girl who will respond to patient loving care. We estimate her age as 7 years.  We think a fresh start would be good for Winter at this time.

Cadbury
male mix

Cadbury is a sweet dog. I find him very easy on a leash.  He licks but not obsessively. He is absolutely the best bed sleeper. He lays there calmly all night. He has little bouts of energy and barking during the day and I found he easily quiets with a little water squirt. He must have plenty of toys to tear up and chew on. He catches balls well and brings them back. 😊. He loves pulling ropes with you. Heís one of those dogs that if a person was tall enough and strong enough he could pick him off the ground with a rope in Cadís mouth. He lays with his legs crisscrossed, which is so cute. He is great in the car and can travel more than 3 hours quite well. He does take toys from Odin all the time and he is quite quick about it. He thinks all treats and toys are his. I am trying to work with him on this. Odin is so passive, he wonít try to keep it. He just drops and runs. In all fairness, Odin will get a toy and lay it by him and not play with it, seeming in wait to see if Cad will take it. Cad listens the first time and just needs direction. If Odin is still eating when Cad finishes, I stand between them. He doesnít try to get by me-he just waits there. There are bones available to chew on and it hasnít caused any fighting. He isnít a growler-he is just a snatcher.  He loves his water which means he has to pee a lot. He enjoys his outside time and doesnít have interest in chasing critters.   He will make a loyal friend and appears to be very easy to train.

Merlin
male
Merlin is a young lab and he has been receiving training at Kennelwood. He is doing wel!  At first he was a wild boy but has learned the ropes. He would love an active home and lots of exercise We require a fenced yard. Merlin has been in play groups with other dog.

Bruce
male Lab

Bruce is estimated to be a 9 year old chocolate lab who is looking for a forever home. He loves to play and run in the yard. He loves balls and toys. He is a handsome boy! He has learned that riding in a car is not a bad thing and can now relax while he rides. He needs practice walking on a leash. He will do best in a home as the only dog and he loves attention and he enjoys meeting people. He is quite a tail wagger!   Due to his aging hips he will need a home with minimal stairs.   He currently lives with a senior Golden girl who he has no problem with, she was there first so not sure if this makes a difference. As a forever home we  would consider an experienced dog lab/golden owner who has an older female.
