Charlie, 3 Years Old, Pitbull Terrier Mix, Male:  Hi!!!  My name is Charlie. I am a big goofball who loves to go for walks and play with my tennis ball. I have a breathing condition (brachycephalic syndrome which is common in pugs) that requires restricted exercise and play time, and I need to stay away from excessive heat. I am a very loving boy, but can be a little mouthy, so I’d do best in a home with older children, and unfortunately, I am not good with cats.

Gracie, 12 Years, Female: Hi! My name is Gracie. I am a chatty and opinionated older gal looking for a quiet home where I can be your only pet. I am not great at grooming myself, so I will need a home that will brush me, or who will take me to the groomer when I need it.
