Theo, top, loves to play fetch! He is a black Labrador Retriever mix and would benefit from obedience training. He may need to be the only dog in a house, because he wants to be the center of attention. He is a 2 to 3-year-old that weighs 50 pounds.

Marshall, bottom, will snuggle on cold winter nights. He is calm, affectionate and patient, so he should do well with a family with younger children. He is a short-hair orange tabby with white. He is 11-months-old.
