Romeo and Carson are best friends here at the shelter. Carson was adopted and now Romeo is looking for his forever home. Romeo is a confident little guy and quite the charmer. He is a great lap dog and enjoys relaxing in the sun. Romeo would appreciate a quiet home with adults. He likes all the attention on him, so he should be the only dog, but could live with a cat.

Cali is a happy, friendly Pit mix who is about four years old. She loves people and squeaky toys. Cali LOVES toys; she can keep herself amused for hours. Cali gets along with other dogs but prefers not to share her toys, so she'll do best in a home without dogs. She tested well with cats and does well with children 5+. Poor Cali has been waiting over a year. Her adoption fee is paid for; she also goes home with a bed, food, toys, treats, a collar and leash.   Cali is the perfect Leprechaun to add to your family
