Ozu came to us during his recovery. It seems this long coated pinto boy was part of a neglect case. Ozu had matting so bad he had to be full shaved, he was badly infested with fleas, had skin infections, infected eyes and ears, and was full of internal parasites. All of his medical needs have since been addressed, and he is on the mend. Despite what Ozu has endured he is still a gentle trusting soul. Once you give him a few minutes to warm up expect kisses from him! This is a very gentle, quiet fellow so an adult breed experienced home that is low key would be best. Ozu loves to play with toys, and loves to do zooms around our yard. He is treat and food motivated!Interested in this gentle soul?

Beautiful Sheldon comes to us from rural TN where he was found living in a abandon shack injured from what appeared to be multiple animal bites.

He is a big, goofy boy who loves to play, he is very inquisitive and silly. Sheldon can be unsure of new situations at times so he will need a home with a confident breed experienced owner who can make him feel safe in new situations.Are you interested in Sheldon?
