Bunky is a young 10 year old Queensland Healer mix. He lost his home because he has a torn ACL and needs a loving home with no stairs. Vet really wanted to avoid surgery because of age and most likely won't benefit from the surgery. Bunky is super sweet. He still loves to play ball tug and loves going for walks. He’s potty trained. Bunky tolerates other dogs with proper meet and greet. He'd rather be an only child but would do fine with another older dog as well.
Bunky should be in a family that provides love and structure. He loves his kennel and is not a barker.
Please call or text if you are interested in meeting Bunky.

This young Mastiff puppy has had a rough start. He was sent to a boot camp for reactivity where he seemed to become more reactive due to the methods used. Currently he is being boarded and looking for a new home with a family that will give him positive training techniques. Odin is very treat motivated, loves playing with his ball on a rope, and has pretty good recall. He does not like to be forced to do tasks or cues. This dog works better for praise and positive reinforcement. He appears to maybe like women a bit more naturally than men at this time.
Contact Freedom Brothers at 480-285-7744 or Layne at 602-430-6619 to meet Odin.
