Toby is a big goofball once you get to know him but has been through some hard things in his life. He had an idyllic and quiet life with his human and his cat and his little dog friend. He lived rurally and was never socialized. But then his human died. His human's boy tried to step in but his young social city life was just too much for Toby. Ultimately, he lost HIS home due to Toby yelling at people to stay away. He couldn't find a new place to live that would include Toby and he finally made the heartbreaking decision to give Toby up. So now Toby is waiting for the right person to find him.
Toby is a big boy. Around 100 pounds. And he needs slow introductions to new people. He needs someone who wont require him to be social. A rural life is ideal. He Will do his best to keep you safe. He is honestly the gentlest of giants but that is hard to see through his rough exterior. He just needs a chance. And he will respond by being the most devoted companion you could ever want. Toby is leash trained, house trained, also trained to wear a muzzle as needed. He loves toys and loves to play. Has resource guarding issues to be worked with.

Chief is a young two year old German shepherd mix. Once he comes around to you, he will become your best friend and make a great hiking buddy! He will also be perfectly content to sit with you on the couch.
He does however have very *Serious* food aggression with other dogs. He is a dog who was likely starved and eats and protects his food like he is always in survival mode. There should be no other animals around while he has food. His issue is with animals, not humans. And ONLY around food.
Chief is otherwise a happy and friendly guy. We only say no to kids due to concerns with the good aggression. He is such a sweet boys and wants very much to be loved.

Zephyr is your typical husky- very playful, full of energy and has a lot to say. He is a really sweet boy who just wants some one to love. He is probably house trained, but will need reminders and consistency. He walks well on a leash. Will require an experienced owner.
We don't know very much about his history, but we do know he was adopted as a young dog and then brought back to the shelter.

Bowie is a very sweet two year old boy but not untypical of a german shepherd. Has stranger danger issue. Can be leash reactive and barrier reactive to other dogs. Would do best as an only dog. He has lived with small children and did really well but we are looking for a home with no children that can focus on him.
He is housebroken, leash trained, knows basic commands. He does need a really secure crate when unsupervised as he can be destructive.
He is not for a first time dog owner.
If you live in Tacoma, he comes with an offer of socialization and training program.
