Nella is a friendly little girl with a lot of personality! She is people- and dog-friendly, and loves romping with her many canine friends. Nella is still young, and will likely grow a little more. She enjoys attention, has good, basic manners and should be easy to train. She is spayed, microchipped and current on all vaccinations. If you’re looking for a friendly young dog, Nella is your girl!




Want to play? Proto does! People or dogs, playtime is Proto’s thing! This big boy loves to romp and roughhouse, and would do best in an active home. Proto could use some leash work (he pulls!) and basic training, but he’ll be a willing and eager participant as long as training stays fun. If you or your dogs love to hike, bike or play, Proto might just be the dog for you.
