Kimmi 2020


Kimmie is an adorable, 9 year old Yorkshire terrier mix who arrived at the shelter when her owner’s health deteriorated.  Kimmie has been blind since birth but she doesn’t let that stop her!  She walks well on a leash, and loves to slowly explore the scents of the outdoors.  Kimmie seems to like other dogs and enjoys taking walks with other shelter residents.  Kimmie also loves playing with her squeaky toy and has become more comfortable and outgoing since settling in and getting used to the routine at the shelter.  She is spayed, up to date on shots and is pee-pad trained.

Guinness sitting 2020

Guinness is an 8 year old, neutered male,
Greater Swiss Mountain Dog.

I am a big cuddle bug and will sit with you on the couch or bed. I also like to play and chase tennis balls. When I get excited I jump around like a kangaroo. I am super friendly and I am usually quiet, but I do bark at the doorbell.
I like kids and girl dogs, but I am not really good with other small animals. I am super smart and know commands for sit, down, off,  and I’m working on leave it. 
I'm a good walker but could use some work when approaching other dogs or small animals because I wants to give chase and pull.  I could also use some help with learning not to jump up on people or counters.
I just had a physical and got all my shots, but my doctor says I should get some more exercise because I need to loose 8 pounds.  I am also neutered.
I would love a family that will give me lots of attention, take me on long walks or adventures in the car.
