Animals Up For Adoption

We choose not to guess the breed(s) of our adoptable pups, as we can never be certain without an official DNA test. For this reason, we also can't guarantee any dog to be a particular size/weight when fully grown. If you would like to know more about the final size of your new family member, we also have adoptable adult/near-adult dogs. Thanks!
