Meet Pop Smoke!

I am a black female standard poodle puppy and am currently 5 months old. I enjoy adventures that consist of playing games, running, jumping, as well as stopping to smell plants while on casual walks. I am a household pet that is looking for a loving family and/or companion that will provide me with plenty of love and cuddles. I am a quick learner and know a few commands. I am AKC limited registered with all of my vaccines and wellness exams. I have received some house training and am crate trained as well. I know basic commands like sit and down. I have received positive training methods involving treats. I am starting to get my adult teeth and have already lost one baby tooth.  I am content with sitting by your feet and relaxing while you are watching television and/or reading.  Please understand that I do need to let out energy from time to time and have been living with owners who are always around. I am rarely alone and can go on short car rides for play dates or vet visits.

Meet Nola!

1 year old

Husky/Cavalier mix

Nola stands for New Orleans, the city of second chances, and that’s just what this beautiful girl needs. She is affectionate, funny, playful and adventurous when given the opportunity to thrive. Nola has lots of energy to burn throughout the day with you on park sniff-aris, playing fetch or training new tricks. She is highly motivated by both food and toys, and – when she is comfortable with you – lots of pets!

Nola adores the company of dogs who want to play with her and enjoys competing in a game of tug-of-war. Nola is a great addition to a home that already has dogs, and has gotten along peacefully with all her foster siblings in multiple homes. She can also walk by other dogs on leash very well, understanding when it is play time and when it is work time.

Nola has been a model obedience student and knows heel, sit, down and drop it very well! She is always looking for new things she can learn with you. Nola is also crate-trained, housebroken, non-destructive and well-behaved on leash.

Nola grew up in a stressful environment that has left her nervous and afraid of strange humans. Despite this adversity, she is excited to explore new environments and learn new things. She may take a few days to warm up to new people but once she knows you she is an easy-going dog who loves affection. Nola is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and will come with post-adoption support.

Meet Odin!

This young Mastiff puppy has had a rough start.  He was sent to a boot camp for reactivity where he seemed to become more reactive due to the methods used.  Currently he is being boarded and looking for a new home with a family that will give him positive training techniques.  Odin is very treat motivated, loves playing with his ball on a rope, and has pretty good recall. He does not like to be forced to do tasks or cues. This dog works better for praise and positive reinforcement. He appears to maybe like women a bit more naturally than men at this time.

Contact Freedom Brothers at 480-285-7744 or Layne at 602-430-6619 to meet Odin.

Thank you!

Princess Leia out of this world, and searching for a family to explore the galaxy with! She is a marvelous young lady who recently found out there’s a whole universe out there and she wants you to help her see it all.

Leia has made many dog friends, playing well with dogs who match her style. She can also relax with her buddies at home when playtime is over.

Meet Bunky!

Bunky is a young 10 year old Queensland Healer mix. He lost his home because he has a torn ACL and needs a loving home with no stairs.  Vet really wanted to avoid surgery because of age and most likely won’t benefit from the surgery. Bunky is super sweet. He still loves to play ball tug and loves going for walks.  He’s potty trained. Bunky tolerates other dogs with proper meet and greet.  He’d rather be an only child but would do fine with another older dog as well.

Bunky should be in a family that provides love and structure.  He loves his kennel and is not a barker.

Please call or text if you are interested in meeting Bunky.
