Dempsey has earned his dreamboat status and can’t wait to be a part of a new family. He takes great care to keep is thick tan coat clean and is already house trained. At 5 years old, he is past many of the pesky puppy training issues, but is a frisky pooch and loves to run in the yard and go on long walks. A McDreamy mix of Shepherd and Chow Chow, loyalty and devotion run deep. He is a medium-sized dog and will be able to thrive in large or small homes. He plays well with other pets, but seems more focused on pleasing people. Dempsey is well mannered with children of all ages and will be a wonderful addition to a loving family.

Carly is a modern gal on a mission to become your new BFF. Having lots to say and loving to ”talk” about all the latest gossip, this friendly, outgoing people pleaser would like nothing more than to meow the day away in a warm lap. At 11 months old, this teenager has learned how to keep her toys picked up and her litter box tidy. She may spend a lot of time primping her black and white Tuxedo coat, but that’s a small price to pay for style. Her all-time favorite thing is a good scratch under her little round chin. Carly is ready to celebrate her big birthday bash soon -- love and a forever home are all she needs to make her life complete.
