Hi there. My name is Ace, and I’m the sweetest mixed-breed boy who’s waited over a year to find my perfect match, and I’m so ready to settle in with my new family. I’m a little shy when you first meet me, so it may take a few visits for me to show you every wonderful side of me.

But wait till I show you my loving and playful personality. Once I come out of my shell, you’ll see how I love to play and chase a tennis ball, which will usually trigger my zoomies around the yard. I can also get quite cuddly, and I particularly love butt scratches. I’ll even do a cute little booty dance to show my appreciation.

My perfect family will be patient in getting to know me and understand that I may need time to be fully comfortable in a new environment. Then, I’ll love you so much I want all of your attention and spin in happy circles to get it. I’m getting more comfortable in the presence of other dogs, but I still want a home where I am your only fur baby, and I’ll be your best boy ever. They say the best things come to those who wait, so I know my perfect family can’t be far away.

Hi. My name is Leo, and I am a large mixed-breed boy. If my adorable giant head doesn’t immediately make you fall in love, my even bigger heart surely will. I love people and will race to greet everyone I see with a goofy smile and lots of kisses. When I know I need to be a good boy and sit, my excitement escapes through my little happy dance with my front paws. My large size may make me seem intimidating at first glance, but within seconds you will see I am just a gentle giant and a teddy bear. To be honest, I don’t think I am that big…I think I make the perfect lap dog.

I love to run more than anything, and I’d like a home with space for that. If you throw the ball, I will gleefully chase after it, though I often won’t pick it up and bring it back…I just want to run. Despite my love for galloping around and my initial excitement when I see someone, I am rather calm-mannered and will want a lot of cuddles. I cannot wait to meet you and find my forever home.

Ace and Leo are fixed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Apply here: and visit us Monday-Friday between 1 and 4 p.m., or if you can’t make it during open hours, email for an appointment.
