karleyHi my name is Karley and would very much like to be a member of your family. I am a coonhound around 8 years old. My favorite things to do are sniff the ground, sniff the tree…sniff…sniff…sniff…sorry I got side tracked. I am getting along pretty well with the other dogs here and I do like kids. I have heard about some weird breed of dog called a “cat”. I don’t think I have ever met one though so I am not sure what to think about them. I am up to date on all my vaccinations and I have been spayed and microchipped.






SonnyHi, my name is Sonny.  I am a nice 7 year old male who is affectionate but still a little scared.  I am looking for a nice quiet home with someone who can spoil and love on me.  I have a funny eye, but it just adds to my charm.  I am current on all of my vaccinations, neutered and microchipped.  Please come and visit me today!
