Leo is a handsome 8 to 10 year old Cocker Spaniel. He is blind and probably mostly deaf but that doesn’t stop him from enjoying life.
His favorite activities are meal times, walking around outside, smelling new smells, taking naps, and belly rubs.
He gets along with all sizes of dogs and other animals but doesn’t want to be stepped on or knocked over. Leo rarely barks and would like a home where he can roam in a protected environment and not be trampled by dogs who play to rough. He is house trained but not good with kids.
Don’t tell Leo but he’s considered special needs. We just think he’s really special.

Java – #709748 – 1.5 Years Old – Shepherd Mix – Female
Java has her eye on you! This extraordinary girl has born with 8 other puppies in a shelter to a stray mom, Java watched as, one-by-one, her mother and siblings all found homes. As she grew to be 3 months old, it became apparent that Java’s right eye wasn’t developing normally due to a congenital disorder and that she would need to have it removed. While on the operating table, Java’s heart and breathing stopped. For 20 minutes, Java was pronounced dead but the veterinarians continued attempting to resuscitate her. Miraculously, she returned and has been one tough cookie ever since. During her short lifetime, Java has been through numerous homes. Surrendered for economic reasons and after being attacked by the other dog in her home, Java could certainly use a permanent place to live with people who will love her forever. She is a terrific girl, great with other dogs of all sizes and kids of all ages. Among her favorite treats are carrots, ice cubes, peanut butter, and playtime. She’s docile, tenaciously loyal, appreciative and understandably clumsy. Won’t you please offer her a brighter future?
