Meet Persius and Stark

These boys are looking for a nice, comfy retirement home. Now, don't call Persius and Stark old. They will be offended as they have plenty of pep in their step. They have lived together for 9 years so we know they would be happiest in a home together. Persius is a 10 year old, 100 pound boxer mix. Stark is a 60 pound pit mix. They are so sweet and loving.

Stark likes to sleep in bed with you under the covers. Persius would prefer to stay on the floor in his own bed. They love to spend time in the fenced yard. Stark likes to chase squirrels and bark happily at passers by. When not in the yard, they like to be on patrol watching out the window for whatever might be happening in the world. Stark is quick to alert you if a package gets delivered. Stark is also more the lap dog.

Persius has security blankets that he carries around. He pays attention to where you are in the house. He also like to give face kisses. Thankfully, Persius won't try to climb into your lap. He is happy to rest his big head on your leg though. He also loves to chase after balls. He will bring them back but usually prefers to lay down and chew on it rather than give it back.

The boys walk well on a leash and rarely pull. They listen well to basic commands sit, inside/outside. They respond to their names but they might choose not to come to you. Maybe stubborn or possibly they figure they have earned the right to be a bit independent.

If you think you would like to open your heart and home to these amazing pups, please fill out an application so we can learn more about you and your home. They are living in a foster home, so if we think it is a good fit, we will reach out to you to set up a time to meet Persius and Stark.
