Notes from Peppa's caretakers:

Peppa came to us as an owner-surrender; she is a tiny package of the best a Pitbull has to offer. She walks good on the leash, plays perfect with her toys, inside and outdoors. Peppa is potty-trained and does not chew much.

Fritz plays well with others — he gets along well with children, dogs or cats. No need to worry: He's already house-trained. He has been vaccinated and neutered.

From Fritz's current caretaker:

Fritz came as an owner-surrender from a very busy household. He walks great on the leash, likes cats, dogs, kids and strangers. If he gets nervous, he wants to be held. Fritz prefers a home with children and loves to dart around and play fetch. He follows you in the house and steals the cozy spots from other dogs. Fritz is around 22 pounds.

Shake, German shepherd mix

Shake is a male German shepherd mix in the care of Rebel Dogs Detroit.

Shake is gentle and plays well with children. He is already neutered and vaccinated. He has mastered his house-training etiquette.

Shake's current caretakers say:

Shake is a smaller, stumpy-legged German Shepherd with a calm but attentive personality. He loves all people, including children and doesn't need to warm up; he is immediately your best friend. Shake would love a home with a yard and children. He is nervous around other dogs. We are currently working with him on this behavior, with success. When no dogs are in sight, he walks with the leash perfectly.
