TO BE KILLED - 11/15/2018
*** POOR ASPEN HAD BEEN IN ACC FOSTER CARE SINCE 6/26/18 - NOW DUMPED BACK AND ON THE LIST O DIE -- PLEASE SHARE THIS SWEET BABY **** A volunteer writes: “Aspen is lots of fun to be with. He is an energetic, active and playful little guy who is the King of the Ball but also a very obedient pooch who sits and poses like a perfect little choir boy! A kennel is not his place and like his given name suggests, I can see him hiking mountains & skiing down the peaks. He runs at a great speed after the ball rather than jumping after it, and loves to lay down to mull it in his mouth. Aspen is really a happy camper in the yard! He is a very cute & medium-sized little guy, so attractive in his grey suit, and who wears quite smartly any outfit you might have for him. He is good on the leash, likely house trained & proper with dogs neared in the street. Aspen is an athletic young pooch who loves action but appreciates cuddles & sweet talks once his batteries are depleted after a good chase or a ball game.

IMAGINE BEING DRAGGED INTO SOME UNKNOWN PLACE & THEN LEFT THERE BY THE ONE PERSON WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO LOVE AND PROTECT YOU..... That's what happened to Bleu, and this could very well be his last memory. Alone, confused, abandoned.
Sacre bleu!! That notice me face on Bleu tugs the heart! Soon to graduate puppy-hood, 1 year old Blue still has the excitement, joy, curiosity, innocence, softness & affection of a baby. He wears a tux, & has the cutest white chip on his onyx black nose.
Bleu is at the perfect age to learn the ropes in order to be a champion #companion pet. He is eager, intelligent and #loves people. The staff carries him cradle style, wrapped in a blanket, to his kennel. Soft bodied, sociable, super smiley and open to all. His intake photo speaks volumes of his character. #CHARMING and #ADORABLE .. His happy-go-lucky disposition will hopefully be his good luck charm.

Middle aged Boy needs to start over
Handsome Casanova is a timid, yet sweet boy. He is still getting to know his new surroundings & puts his best paw forward - wagging his tail, accepting caresses, walking nicely on the leash. Casanova likes toys too, but doesn´t play with them (yet) - he, most likely, needs to feel more comfortable first. What Casanova wants the most is to be in some other place ... Somewhere in a loving home, where he can feel safe & where his parent or foster-parent can REASSURE HIM.. Please share Casanova for this loving, quiet & good place, called home... A volunteer writes: Casanova is a sweet, friendly, high-energy boy. Whether in his cage trying to get your attention or out for a walk, his tail is constantly wagging.Though he's hyper-vigilant, he loves being pet & is especially partial to cheek rubs. Sometimes he even leans into me when I give him head & back scratches. Casanova has lots of energy, so he'll be sure to keep you on your toes.
