Jack is happy to keep company with other dogs and cats. He is already house-trained. Jack is already neutered and vaccinated.

More from Jack:

Hi, I'm Jack. I'm laid back, I get along with everyone, even the cats where I stay. I just want love and attention. I'm house and crate trained and I love being indoors. I like to go outside but prefer to stay inside with you. I am a talker at times when I really want something. I don't know many commands but I'm working on learning the basics.

Clara, shepherd mix

Clara is a sweet female shepherd mix being kept at Joyrides Rescue.

Clara plays well with others, and she gets along well with other dogs. She is vaccinated and spayed. She's already house-trained.

From Clara's current caretaker:

Clara arrived at the shelter after possibly being hit by a car. Even with a swollen leg, she limped around greeting workers and volunteers at the shelter, tail continuously wagging in spite of the pain she must have been in. After getting some X-rays, it was determined that her femur was shattered and it was best that her leg be amputated. But life as a tripod is not deterring Clara from living her best life. She’s great with kids and other dogs.

Here's what Pattie's friends at CAMO - Rescue think of her:

Pattie is crate trained and can use the doggie door to come in the house. She is a little unsure on the leash but is excited to go out and sniff everything. She also likes to ride in the car. Pattie loves her person and prefers to be their one and only. Lap time and snuggles are her favorite thing. She would do best in a home with her sister Madeline or as an only dog.
