Izzy

I’m Izzy, a 6-year-old spayed female Lab mix. I didn’t think my life would turn out like this, sitting in a shelter, sharing a kennel with a stranger. I was in a home when I was younger. I was loved by the family and was very happy. I am gentle, get along with other animals and children. I am housebroken and have gone to obedience school! My only fault is I take thyroid meds … and what lady my age doesn’t? I don’t understand why my family left me here.

Onna

What’s up, world! My name is Onna, and I really love people. Every time I see them my little nub tail starts wiggling really fast! I love it when they give me a good head scratch, or even better, a belly rub! I get along well with other dogs and I love to cuddle with my kennel mates. I walk well on a leash, but I like to be the leader. I would love a spacious backyard to expel my energy.
