Lara, Rocky and Cedar Available a BARCS!

| September 9, 2013 | 0 Comments


Hi, I’m Lara, and I’m a 1 ½ year old relaxed and gentle girl.  I like to play and go for walks, but I’m happy no matter what I’m doing as long as there is a human with me!  When my human friends come to my kennel to visit, I wag my tail in anticipation of attention.  When they come inside I wait patiently to be pet, and then I give sweet, thankful kisses.  I also have a great time playing with my dog friends here at the shelter, that is so much fun!  Please come down today and meet me, I’m anxiously awaiting my forever home.

Hello! My name is Rocky (Jugo) and I am one gentle giant! I am calm and very friendly. I love exploring the play yard here at the shelter and have even conquered the daunting A-frame! I also love to play fetch with my human friends and I will bring the ball back and drop it right at your feet!  I also know “sit” and “down,” so I’m quite smart, in addition to being sweet and charming, and I will woo you with my gentle kisses! Some would even say I’m the complete package! If you want a distinguished 4 year old gentleman as a companion, then I’m certainly your top dog! Won’t you please come down to BARCS and meet me today?



Hi, I’m Cedar, and I’m a sweet, 1 ½ year old girl.  I don’t mean to brag, but one of the volunteers here called me “a true gem in the World of Dogs at BARCS.” I am very patient and calm in my kennel awaiting my turn to go out for a walk. Once outside, I’m easy to walk on the leash, and I enjoy strolling along and receiving any attention you give me. I also love to play with my dog friends.  I pay close attention to my human friends and would be easy to train. I would love for you to come see me at BARCS and give me the forever home that I so deserve!
