Cash, dachshund

Cash is a sweet male dachshund dog being kept at Joyrides Rescue.

Have no fear: He is already house-trained. His vaccinations are already up to date, and he's neutered.

Notes from Cash's caretakers:

Cash is ready to find his forever home! He does well with all of his K9 foster siblings (of all sizes) and is just a chill, laid back guy who is looking for the perfect home. He is quiet, calm, and loves to be with people. He is often found snoozing away on top of a little nest of pillows and blankets he’s fluffed up to just how he wants them. He loves head scratches, walks well on a leash and loves to ride in the car. He is friendly, easy-going and mild-mannered. As is common with his age/breed, Cash has a heart murmur but doesn’t let that slow him down one bit!

Nebbie, German shepherd

Nebbie is a female German shepherd dog being kept at Rescue Dogs Galore.

Nebbie plays well with others — she'll get along great with other dogs. She's already house-trained. She is already spayed, and she has had all her shots.

More from Nebbie:

Hi, my name is Nebbie. I am 5 years old and I weigh 73 pounds. I am moderately active but would be happy going on a walk (I'm great on leash) or playing in the backyard with my peeps. I also do just fine being a couch potato! I get along with other dogs with a slow introduction and I am living with two medium-sized doggies in my foster home. I am a loving, sweet and patient lady. I know "sit" and "come". I am a big dog, so a house with no very small children, tiny dogs, or cats would be ideal.
