Bronwyn has heart-melting blue eyes. This gentle girl was born in 2005 and is deaf and partially blind. She enjoys short walks and exploring with her dog friends. She will even nap with them.

Bronwyn gets along well with everyone she meets, including dogs who are smaller than her and cats. She’d love a quiet, comfortable home and a person or family with a gentle touch.
Squash has unique markings and a curious face that says she wants to trust people and to learn about the world. Squash is loving with people and gets along well with dogs and cats. Squash came to Best Friends as a puppy mom and did a wonderful job raising her pups. Now that they have grown up a little, she’s ready for a home of her own. Born in 2014, she can be a tad shy and unsure in new situations, but all she needs is a little time and patience. She’s already learned how to walk nicely on a leash and how to sit. She is ready to have a home of her own.
Someone forgot to tell Leona she’s a senior. Born in 2007, she has lots of energy and loves to go for walks (as long as they aren’t mini marathons). Leona also loves people and gets excited to make new human friends. She has a knack for making everyone around her smile and laugh. Leona can be reactive at barriers like fences and gates. Leona is picky about her canine companions and cannot live with cats. Leona can’t wait to meet her very best human friend and to share all of her happy, sunny days.
Abner is an easygoing soul. Laidback and fairly independent, he’s warmhearted. He does have some pain in his spine, but medicine helps. Born in 2009, he’s independent and will get overstimulated after a bit. Abner has FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). But FIV isn’t a scary condition. Cats can live long, full lives with it, and it’s very hard for other cats to catch. Abner doesn’t happen to like other cats, so it might be best if he’s an only cat, but he would be great with dogs.
Bart loves people and likes to receive attention. He tries to play with other cats, but he can become aggressive if they don’t want to play with him. Born in 2013, he came from an animal rescue group in Ohio. Bart has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). He can live with cats without the virus, but only if they get along since FIV is spread via bite wounds. Bart would do well in a home where he can receive a lot of attention. He could do okay with other cats if they are confident and can stand up for themselves.
