Bandit has so many great traits it’s hard know where to begin.  He’s been in a foster home, so a lot has been learned about him. He is great with all dogs of all sizes, did well with kids, and seems to have no interest in cats or chickens.  He is doing great with crate training and knows what “go potty” means.  He hasn’t shown interest in chewing on anything except dog chew toys.  He gets very excited when he plays and when he knows it’s time for a walk so asking him to “sit” to settle to be calm is key. He is an energetic boy would love to live in a home with another dog that has his same play style and a yard to play in.  He’s a Pit Bull Terrier mix, neutered, 68 lbs., about 2 years and 5 months old. Call or email today to learn more about Bandit and set up a meet!

Lacey is an approximately 2 year old Australian Kelpie mix. She is very sweet, but initially a little shy. Lacey does well with other dogs, and even kids! She is about 35 lbs, and would be great for an active owner who doesn’t want to hit the trails alone.
