I have had Cali since she was a puppy. She loves snuggling and playing fetch. She is great with my two toddlers and cat. She likes playing with other small dogs but it does take her sometime to warm up. She does not do well with high energy dogs. She is also anxious around new people and also takes time to warm up but treats do help. We don’t have family close by so traveling can be tough. She would not do well in a normal boarding situation since she is anxious on new situations.

Laika

Philadelphia, PA

  Breed: Hound-beagle mix

  Weight: 55 lbs

  Age: 5 years old

  Gender: Female

Hi there, we are a Mt Airy family of 5: 2 parents, 2 kids (7 and 11), and Laika (our sweet pup). We have lived in the Mt Airy neighborhood for just under 2 years and work in University City. Laika helps walk the kids to school every morning and we also walk around the neighborhood and in the Wissahickon woods. We rescued Laika from an organization in Florida when we lived there and she is still a sun-Loving dog!! Her name is a nod to the fact that she was born in the year of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. She is sweet and gentle, great with kids, but not so good with cats. She is high energy but well behaved indoors. She has a little leash reactivity with other dogs, squirrels, and motorbikes, but is generally a good walker and doesn't pull. She is friendly with most dogs once she gets to know them, but can be quite relentless in her wish to play, which is sometimes a bit much for lower energy dogs.j

Hi My name is Zelda and I live with my brother Chance. My mom currently has a really important job and a big role to fill. She loves us so much but does work a decent amount of hours. Often times needs to go on work trips last minute. We don’t blame her because she is simply trying to provide for my brother and I since we are very needy. She’s gives us so much love and attention and is looking for someone who can do that for us when she’s not here. My brother is older and super laid back. She’s really looking for someone to care for me while she’s at work. Please message us to see if you are a good fit. Long story short she’s looking for someone to love me like a second mommy or daddy.
