About Bo (DR1101)

Bo is a beautiful Beagle that was mistreated while in his kennel and, therefor, now is very protective of his kennel.

Bo will be a great addition to your family if you are willing to give him some time to trust you and your family. Bo can play with other dogs and loves to play in the big yard at Ruth's with his friends.

Here is Bo's 15 seconds of fame:

Ivana (D6666)

About Ivana (D6666)

Ivana is a beautiful sweet dog! She had a broken leg when she came to us and the only possible option for correcting the issue was to remove the leg. Ivana runs around with her foster brother Chevy (who, by the way, also has a hurt leg) and you can't tell she is a tripod.

Ivana loves everybody and everything...she loves life!!!
