If you have been looking for an active, high-spirited companion, this may be the girl for you. Stella has a youthful way about her, which is not surprising for an exuberant Labrador, Great Dane mix; she loves playing with toys! She is going to need strong management, leadership and training on your part to turn her into your dream girl. Stella is looking for an experienced, dog savvy household who can handle her effervescent personality and energy level. It is best that Stella get her exercise interacting with you versus going to the dog park. Remember "a tired dog is a happy dog". If you love running, hiking, jogging, playing Frisbee at the beach, she is your girl. Stella is a big goofy love and wants nothing more than to be your lifelong companion.

Neutered Male, 10lbs
Henry Congo has a big name, a big coat, and a big personality. He is a tiny dog. Henry loves people, but is very environmentally aware with some history of being predatory with cats and birds. He will settle down nicely by your side or in your lap. Henry Congo should not be off leash nor left alone in the yard where he will be intent on getting out. Also Henry Congo is not a dog park dog because he tends to guard his people from other dogs. Although Henry Congo is generally a jolly fellow, he is sensitive to correction, so motivational work is recommended. This guy is cute and has his heart in the right place; you can't go wrong if you commit to putting in some work and time.
