ARCHER

2 Year Old Male

LABRADOR RETRIEVER & GREAT PYRENEES MIX

Archer is fully grown at about 80 lbs. He LOVES to play with other dogs and will even try to get little dogs engaged in play. He is not hyper, but he will jump on people if he’s excited enough. Archer knows Sit (and will usually give a paw wave while he’s at it) and knows Down. He should be fine with children who are too big to knock over. We’re undecided about how he is with cats. He doesn’t seem to care about them when introduced on leash, but barks at them when he sees them in the window. Archer is crate trained and seems to be housebroken. He pulls some on leash, but is happy to go on walks or rides in the car. Archer is vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, dewormed and groomed.

Luca is 20 lbs now, and will get to be at least 60 lbs when full grown. He loves to play and will sit and cuddle up on the sofa with you. He should do fine with other dogs, cats and respectful kids. He was great for his bath and has begun potty training. Luca is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed. When inquiring, please be prepared to discuss the obedience classes you’ll be attending and your chosen method of housebreaking.

SHUSHU

11 Year Old Female

SHIH TZU MIX

Shushu and Genevieve are sisters. They each weigh about 5 lbs. They are in need of a home because their owner passed away. Each dog was raised to be the queen of her castle. As such, they will be placed separately. Both are spunky and active – their favorite things in life are getting attention/being held and mealtime. There are no health issues with either dog. They’re housebroken, used to grooming, and like to go on car rides. They are OK with cats and should be good with respectful children. They will not tolerate rough handling.

DAISY

9+ Year Old Female

SHIH TZU

Special Needs

Little Daisy is cleaned up and ready to go to a new home! Of all the things wrong with her when she arrived in rescue, the only treatment remaining is the twice daily medicine in her eyes. Daisy is sweet and loves to be held. She also loves to go on (fairly short, but enthusiastic) walks. Daisy is crate trained, but it’s not known if she’s fully housebroken. She likes to go out frequently to piddle. Daisy gets along well with other dogs, cats, and will be fine with respectful children. She’s good for her baths and grooming – she’s an easy keeper and a foster favorite. She’s a chunky 16 lbs. Daisy is spayed, dewormed, vaccinated, de-flea’d, microchipped, and has had her teeth cleaned.

Shelby

If you would like to help with the cost of my care, click on the PayPal button

SHELBY

3 Year Old Female

GREYHOUND

Shelby came to us with five other dogs that were confiscated from their owner for severe neglect. The dogs were fed sufficiently but were kept outdoors in a filthy, muddy pit with a makeshift lean-to for shelter. They were hugely infested with fleas and other parasites and had not received veterinary care - even for a broken leg in one case. In spite of Shelby's rough start, her initial reservation turns to her being affectionate, bouncy and loving attention from people. Because Shelby was not kept as a pet, she did not get formal obedience training but has shown she is a quick learner. She is crate trained, walks on a leash and is learning what it’s like to live indoors – on a soft, warm bed for the first time.

Shelby's adopter will need to be knowledgeable and experienced with sight hounds. She will need a home without small animals, including cats, rabbits, birds, etc. She should do fine with a medium or large dog. Shelby is now parasite-free, spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She weighs 71 pounds.

APRIL

10 Year Old Female

BOSTON TERRIER

April is fully grown at a lean 17 lbs. She needs a home because her elderly owner became ill and could no longer care for her. She is a very happy little dog - full of spunk and LOVES to get belly rubs and go on walks. She is good for her bath and is crate trained. We're told she's housebroken to a doggy door; there is no doggy door at the foster home, so we can't test it. April came to us in need of treatment for a horrible ear infection, skin infection, and with a tooth ready to fall out. Her ears are cleared up, and she has had a dental. Her feet have some residual evidence of infection, but the hair is growing back. Adoption fee $200.

TINY TIM

3 Month Old Male

CHIHUAHUA MIX

Tiny Tim weighs 3 lbs now, and is expected to be 10 lbs or less when full grown. He has been started on crate training, but will need to be housebroken and taken to obedience class. Tiny Tim gets along well with other small dogs and should be fine with cats and respectful children. He is neutered, microchipped, dewormed, and current on vaccinations. He's got a funny looking back foot (see photo) that looks like some bones are missing in his toes. It is a small birth defect that doesn't slow him down in the slightest, and there is nothing medically to do for it as far as we can tell. His adoption fee is $260.

Gigi

GIGI

3 Year Old Female

YORKIE MIX

Gigi is fully grown at about 7 lbs. She has a great personality, lots of energy and also is very snuggly. She enjoys running and walks, is great in the car AND gets along with most cats and dogs. Gigi also gives kisses and does not hesitate to kiss when your mouth is open! Seriously, this little girl is a bundle of fun and as sweet as they come. Gigi is housebroken and uses a dog door. She is too tiny for rough and tumble kids and needs to be watched because she will take off very fast out of the front door if allowed to. Gigi is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and ready for a family to love!

ROCKY

4 Year Old Male

ENGLISH BULLDOG

Rocky is fully grown at about 60 lbs. He is crate trained and housebroken. He has had some home obedience training, but could stand to go to an actual obedience class. Rocky loves to go for walks, but will pull on leash. He is great for his bath, riding in the car and receiving attention from anybody who will give it to him. Rocky could easily live as an only dog or with a non-marshmallow female dog that’s larger than he is. (He doesn’t eat little dogs, but he is too much for them with his play style.) He is a medium snorer and only drools when it’s time for his meal or if he’s just had a drink of water.

MISTY

3 Month Old Female

TERRIER MIX

Misty is currently 5 lbs and is expected to be a long-legged 10-15 lbs when fully grown. She is full of energy, playful, and loves attention from people. Because she is a bit of a rabble-rouser, she would do best with kids over 10 and other dogs bigger than she is. When inquiring, please be prepared to discuss the obedience classes you’ll be attending and your chosen method of housebreaking.

TRIS

4 Year Old Female

GERMAN SHEPHERD MIX

Tris is fully grown at the perfect size of about 35 lbs. She is a quiet and devoted girl who very much likes the company of her people. Tris is smart and would make a great candidate for agility training. She is leash trained and knows basic commands but would still benefit from attending an obedience class. Tris is good with smaller dogs and dogs her own size. She is housebroken and knows how to use a dog door. Tris is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed. She is social, but can get overwhelmed in crowds and new situations; therefore, we believe she will do best in an adult home.

GRIZWOLD

5yr Year Old Male

ENGLISH BULLDOG

Grizwold aka Grizz is on the small side, nice and compact at about 50 lbs. His favorite thing is riding shotgun in the car, and he fits perfectly! He will even load himself into the car for you, so no heavy lifting needed! Grizz is a laid-back boy who just wants to lay around froggy-style in his humble abode. He is a big baby as evidenced by his suckling on his dog bed to lull himself to sleep. He has a gentle snore and is fairly clean with his water bowl. Grizz has shown to be great with both cats and respectful children. He’ll hang out peacefully with other dogs, but does not show much interest in playing. He is a moderate-maintenance bulldog. He’s great on leash and can go on walks as long as one whole block! Aside from the normal cleaning of ears and nasal folds, he needs a grain-free diet to keep his skin healthy, and needs eyedrops twice a day to treat KCS or "dry eye."

BENNY

4 Year Old Male

LHASA APSO

Benny is 18 lbs of pure Lhasa at its finest! He is friendly but not demonstrative. He is a spirited boy who is devoted to his personal human(s). He is wary of strangers at first meeting but warms up before too long and is a great watchdog! Benny is currently fostered with 3 female dogs and, while he does fine with other dogs, he has enough of "Lhasa-tude" to where he really should be the only dog. Benny did great for his grooming and rides beautifully perched on a passenger's lap while in the car. Benny also knows how to sit up like a prairie dog! He can be mouthy, but has exhibited good bite inhibition. For this reason, he will be placed in an adult-only household. Benny would make a great road companion for a traveling couple. I have fostered for over 15 years and have never seen a dog so enjoy his car rides!

Why are there only a few dogs on this site and
most of them are adopted already?

Many of the dogs we get are not ready for adoption right away. Only dogs that are ready will go up on the website. If the dog becomes ready for adoption just before a Pet Fair, it will probably be adopted from the Pet Fair before it ever makes it to the website. Often people will call us looking for a specific breed and we will place the dog with them before it ever makes it to the website. Our foster homes work full time outside of the home and have families to care for. Often we just don't have the time to get a picture and a description up on the web rapidly but we do try.  So watch the web, call us, and come to the Pet Fairs. You have to be actively searching for a dog while we do our best to save them from the shelters and make them ready for you to find. As soon as the webmaster is notified that a dog is ready or has been adopted, the website will be updated.
