Ella was surrendered due to her owners health. She is dog aggressive so she will need to be an only dog. She loves people and was just fine at both the groomer and vet on recent visits. She is working on housebreaking and is showing progress. Car rides are always enjoyed by Ella. She is crate trained, walks well on a leash and is not a picky eater. She doesn’t make much eye contact until she gets to know you. If this sounds like the dog for you, please contact Mark.


MARLO - 20-026-MI
     Adoption Pending

Sex: Female - spayed

Marlo is being surrendered due to issues with a very young child. She has had a previous hip dysplasia problem and will need another hip operation with which SOAR will assist with the cost. She is fine with other larger dogs and loves people. No cats, small dogs or young children for Marlo though. She is fine being alone in the house while the owners run errands, is housebroken and up to date on all her shots. Marlo is also crated trained, knows basic commands, eats anything, sweet, likes car rides, and is fine at the groomer and the vet. When meeting new people, she is very friendly and gets excited. She sleeps on a dog bed or on the floor in the owner’s room. Marlo is loyal, loving, attentive, observant, happy and snuggly.

If this sounds like your new best friend, please contact Mark to either foster or adopt.
