Meet Tuff! He and his sibling, Ruff (also for adoption) are handsome happy-go-luck energetic puppies looking for an active forever home.
Tuff is a little more reserved than his bro, but warms up very quickly

These brothers were dropped off at the vets office to possibly be euthanized because the finder couldn’t keep them and didn’t know what else to do. Thankfully, the vet instead made the decision to keep them there and provide them shelter until a foster home became available, Both boys are now with one of our fosters in TX.

These boys love to play with the other big dogs in the foster home and are truly fun pups. They have a rough and tumble play style so a home with no cats. smaller dogs or young children would be best. Both like leash walks, but do need additional training as their excitement level sometimes leads to pulling and jumping. They are both very smart, so they will eventually get it with patience and consistency.

If you are looking for a co-pilot, they love car rides with no car sickness. They are fine in a crate in the car for errands (they’ll ride for hours), but are not crated often when at home and seldom bark.

They would love an active home possibly with another dog of the same size and energy level, and maybe some older pre-teen or teenage kids.
