Update on Finley

Update on Finley

Adopted: October, 2019

Dog’s former name: Finley

What are the best things about your dog?
He is so easy to love!! He loves everyone and wants to be everyone’s friend. He loves to be silly and play but also cannot get enough snuggle time. He is so quirky and funny!

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
He loves to go to the dog park and play and run with friends!! He gets along with literally everyone. We are also working on fetch and he’s loving it!

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Finn had horrible kennel and separation anxiety when we first brought him home, and he has come SOO far! We have worked hard to create that trusting relationship with him, and help him to feel safe and comfortable in our home. He used to have a bleeding nose from hurting himself in the kennel when we were gone. Now he chills out in his kennel with his peanut butter kong and his stuffed monkey and just snuggles in. He loves that we play classical radio in the background while we’re gone. 🙂 We are really proud of his progress!

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
Honestly, Finley is the friendliest, most submissive pitbull I have ever met. Generally, people have opinions when they hear or see that I have a pitbull, but everyone that has met Finley quickly realizes how sweet and friendly he is and they are pleasantly surprised.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Finley, Finn, Finny, Finny Winny

FAST FIVE with Finley

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? Definitely Piggy!

Update on Leon

Update on Leon

Adopted: April, 2019

Dog’s former name: Leon

What are the best things about your dog?
His joyful attitude, love of playing, and ability to love.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
Leon’s favorite activities include tug o’ war, unstuffing toys, teasing his brothers, fetch, car rides, and walks!

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
Leon has been well-received by everyone he meets. He is more of a “pocket pit bull,” so I think that has been an easy way for us to introduce the breed to people we know, who perhaps haven’t accounted for the breed. He is a charmer and we haven’t met someone who is standoffish about him.

FAST FIVE with Leon

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? Piggy!
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep on
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Rides, 100% rides.
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? No way, man.
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? A day in the sun is certainly my favorite, but I LOVE running through the snow and catching snowballs too!

Update on Tasha & Mishka

Update on Tasha & Mishka

Adopted: Tasha joined us in June, 2018 and we then foster failed Mishka in July, 2019

Dog’s former name: Both girls kept their SAB names

What are the best things about your dog?
They are SO smart; sometimes too smart for their own good and unbelievably loyal. They also give “hugs” to the people they love; where they stand on their hind legs and wrap their front legs around your neck. Hugs are over when they say it’s over. They also have a howl that sounds like a whale; it’s been dubbed their “orca call.”

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
The floofs were bred for winter so anytime they can spend outside in the snow is their favorite. As LGDs, they also love to patrol and monitor the neighborhood.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Tasha was in a fashion show! She loves to model.

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
There’s a lot of stigma around the ovcharka breed as well; if people have heard of the breed they usually assume the dogs are aggressive and unsafe to be around. We enjoy proving them wrong.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
The orca sisters!

FAST FIVE with Tasha AND Mishka

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? PIGGY. Also, Tash is on a diet and asks that you all send food.
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep, but only in the winter. In the summer it’s too hot for beds.
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides!
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? Tasha hates it; Mishka will splash all day
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Snow!!!
