Baloo is a 2-year old male pitbull mix who was surrendered to the shelter. He would do best in a house with teens. Baloo is not good with cats; he may be good with dogs but depends on the dog. Baloo is a strong dog who will also need a strong owner and training. He's very active and loves to play and run around. So far he's been doing well with his basic commands.

Shamus is 1-year old male Border collie mix who was surrendered to the shelter because his owners could no longer take care of him. He does get along with other dogs and possibly cats. Shamus is an active dog, as most Border Collies will be so he'll need an active family. Shamus is a sweet guy but he's still a bit on the nervous side so he takes some time warming up to people, mostly just men right now but he does warm up. He is also housebroken.
