Kiyo is a happy girl, travels well in the car, leash trained, easy to groom, crate trained and  knows a couple of tricks and is strictly a house dog-as that is how she has been been raised. We are looking for companion home for Kiyo where she may live in the lap(s) of luxury. 

Kiyo has NOT been raised with cats, however with dog savey cats will likely show interest especially in a desire to groom them. Kiyo is a larger female, who has a big wiggle! She gets along well with males, and some females. As such, she would do best in either a single dog household or one wherein her companion is that of a male. 

Kiyo is active, good recall with a nice off button relaxing with her humans. Serious inquiries welcome if you would like to know more or meet this sweet girl.   Re-homing fee does apply

Ryu is a very sweet and easy girl to live with. We are looking for just the right home that Ryu can enjoy a relaxing home life with. Ryu has achieved much so far including her Best in Specialty Show, Canine Good Citizen, Advanced and Therapy dog (the last three, she achieved in one day!) 

Ryu is crate trained, travels well in the car, easy to groom, is a  house dog, how she was raised (and very comfortable on furniture, although does know 'off') 

Ryu has been spayed (never bred) , has a good recall-although we would strongly recommend not testing hers until after adjustment time and training with her new family has taken place! Ryu has NOT been exposed to cats, and we do not think that with cats that are not dog savey she would be a good fit. Proper introduction and management would be key for harmony with a cat/household. Ryu is good with other dogs and loves people. 

If interested in Ryu, please fill out our questionnaire and/or tell us a bit about yourselves/family. A re-homing fee does apply. Serious inquiries welcome.
