Blue-1

Blue

Showroom Mascot

I was born in Allendale Michigan to a breeder named Aaron Silver on October 28, 2014. My Mom was a black and white Border Collie and my Dad was a Blue Merle like me. One day my owner Rich and his father in law came to see me and my Mom and Dad. Nice guy that Rich, a few treats, a little exchange of money and I was taking my first trip in a car, to Northville Michigan. Ever since then I have become an expert level Frisbee catcher, a hell of a Deer chaser and a squirrels intimidator. If you have a little time to play or a lot of action to deliver then I’m your man, ready for action. I come to the office on Mondays and Friday or by special request. PS: I like herding little kids (it’s in my family heritage you know) but I have never bitten anyone or shown an ugly face to another dog. Border Collies just want to have fun.

Marcella

Marcella

Showroom Mascot

Marcella is a small Feist mix that is timid and curious. She was born in the southern US, and Jen adopted her here in Michigan. She had a rough life before being adopted, so she takes a little while to warm up to people. Once she does, though, she will be your best friend. She loves to run and play, and then sleep! Be sure to say hello when you visit.

Libby

Libby

Showroom Mascot

Libby is a Doxon /Basset Hound mix who is figuring out how the world works. Everything is new and exciting and all the smells must be smelled! She is sweet and snuggly and a wee bit noisy, but she loves people. She will wriggle her way into your heart when you stop by to see us.

Jake

Jake

Showroom Mascot

I’m a lab-retriever mix from Austin, TX. My dad and mom rescued me when I was two. They affectionately refer to me as their eternal puppy. I have a limitless supply of energy and enjoy chasing balls, playing in the snow, swimming, and barking at the evil people who drop off packages. You can find me curled up in a ball on anything left on the floor in the house. A paper bag, a towel, a small pillow, a napkin. I’m always ready to play!

Bella

Bella

Showroom Mascot

I’m a lab-retriever mix with a troubled past in and out of animal foster homes, returned to the shelter four times for behavioral problems. My dad and mom rescued me in Austin, TX when I was four as a birthday present for my mom. Well the joke was on her! I’m the reason they cant have nice things. My parents affectionately refer to me as their moody teenager. I have a 7’ vertical leap when I’m motivated. Most of the time I lounge around and sleep, tolerating love pats and ear pulls from the smallest human. I like to annihilate rodents, stuffed animals, plastic toys, and picture books. But I always look very innocent.
