One-year-old Frisbee is a lot of fun and enjoys romping around and playing with people and doggie friends. This pup will learn quickly by using yummy treats. He enjoys his playtime with people and loves a good romp with one of his dog friends. In fact, we recommend that Frisbee goes to a home with another dog to help expend his energy. Frisbee currently weighs 52 pounds.

Seven-month-old Miles is a sweet and charming lad. He likes to explore his surrounding and take naps, hopefully in a place where he can grab a birds-eye view. Miles will make a great companion for just about anyone! Plus, his adoption fee has already been prepaid by a generous admirer.
