With tears in their eyes, Mila’s previous owners surrendered her to SOAR to do what was best for Mila. They knew with the birth of their first child and working full time, they could not provide the time or the active lifestyle Mila needed. SOAR brought Mila into rescue with open arms and the promise to find the perfect home for this beautiful youngster.

Mila is an energetic, young girl who likes to greet with both paws up in the air. She acts younger than her age, still a puppy in every way.

She loves to play and be active and this puppy still enjoys a good chew, so she’ll want plenty of appropriate toys and will need supervision. She’s like a toddler with teeth – both want to explore the world through their mouths.

She is crate trained and enjoys walks but pulls hard. She is friendly with both humans and dogs. She really enjoys the company of an active dog who will play with her. She likes to play ball and is good catching it from a toss about eight feet away.

She enjoys joining you in bed and likes to sit with you on the couch or in a chair. She is very happy being on the furniture with you. She is long-legged but somehow manages to curl up in a fox terrier-sized bed, when the humans are hogging the whole couch.

Mila is a lovely, friendly, affectionate, arm-wrenching handful!

She is spayed, current on shots, and has no health issues.

If you are up for the challenge, are at home more than away, lead anactive life with room for an active tag-a-long, and have a playful dog at home who needs a companion, please put in your application for Mila.

You must have a SOAR Adoption Application submitted to be considered.

Bo has just come into SOAR through no fault of his own. His mom and dad got a divorce. We are looking for a foster or forever home for Bo.

Here is what we know about him. He is 8 years old (his birthday is 2-22-2011) and weighs about 70 pounds. He loves his people and is not food aggressive, but he MUST MUST MUST be fostered/placed as an only dog (no cats or young kids either).

The collage of photos are of Bo three years ago. The second photo is of him now. He doesn't understand why his world has been turned upside down and really hopes that someone will want to love him again.

If you are interested in fostering or adopting Bo, please contact Mark ASAP.
