Are you looking for the best friend of a lifetime? A loyal companion who will stand by you always? Peekaboo is the one for you.  
Peekaboo (Peek) is a silly, sweet, beautiful deaf double merle boy with tons of energy.   At first a little shy, but quickly warms up and bonds to his person.  He may be deaf, but he is quick to learn and always wanting to please.  Peek is about 2 years old, in great health and recently neutered. He is also up to date on his shots.  
Peekaboo had never known what love is for he was dumped on the streets when only a baby and had to learn how to survive. Which being deaf was not an easy thing to do.  He was picked up and put into a shelter and then shuffled around form shelter to shelter due to his deafness, until ARPH found him and brought him to a warm safe foster home. 
Peek is looking for a place to lay his head, and learn to relax and enjoy life with someone special. He is a very lovable and snuggly type of guy, just needs a person to love and snuggle with. An only dog family would be best for Peek.  Cats are okay.  Families with older children preferred.  If you think your heart is big enough for a special guy, please contact Maria.

Bruiser is a lovely 9 year old boy who is one of the 5 dogs that ARPH took in that were mostly living in crates. When he came in he was so badly matted that he had to be partially shaved and had skin and ear infections. He’s now feeling much better and is ready for his own forever home. In his time with us, he’s met many people in a variety of situations and his temperament just shines through at all times. Everyone comments on what a nice dog he is and he accepted all of the difficult grooming, vet work and everything in stride. 

Bruiser is quite a big boy and also very handsome. He acts like a big puppy when given the chance. While we were told that he was not good with male dogs, that has not been shown to be true. Since his neuter, he’s been introduced to and fostered with a variety of dogs of both sexes and he’s not only fine with them, he often wants to play. He’s an active dog who loves the outdoors but also very likely has arthritis and will benefit from some joint supplementation. As he gets more exercise and muscles up, that will help as well. Bruiser is quite hard of hearing but he does hear some. In light of this, his new home must have a physically fenced yard.  

Bruiser is a very fun and loving dog that will make an excellent companion. His new home should not have cats as they are one thing that he is overly interested in.
