Bentley '17

Please meet Bentley! He is a very handsome purebred senior boy who is looking for his forever family. Bentley is a very friendly, affectionate, and active boy who loves to be with his humans.  If you sit down he will seek your affection. He will nudge you with his paw or wet nose asking for love. Joy is rolling on his back, inside, or outside in the grass. Tennis balls and soft toys are ecstasy for mouthing and self-play. Despite arthritis, he really enjoys time spent going out for walks now. His stamina increases daily since recovering from pneumonia when he first came in to rescue. Bentley needs a single-story home with access to a yard, where he can be a part of a family who will make his senior years his best yet! If you are home most of the day and would like to share your life with a very sweet boy, who will walk through your front door and become your devoted companion, please consider this very special Golden boy!

Fiona '18
Photos
Meet Fiona! This very sweet little Golden mix is about 3 years of age, 61 lbs., and came in to rescue together with Harlowe the flashy boxer. Fiona is very affectionate, loves to cuddle, give kisses, and lean on her humans. She has a moderately high energy when first taken outside for a walk but settles after about 15 minutes. She may need some training but appears to have already had a bit, as she understands basic commands and keeps her dog run spotless at the vet hospital where she is staying for now. She has a very soft mouth when offered treats. She appears to be ok around the dogs she’s been exposed to while on walks, but we still have a lot more to learn about this girl. Once Fiona has had her spay surgery and her bubble bath she will be looking for an appropriate foster home. We will continue to monitor Fiona and Harlowe for a genuine bond situation, but for now they seem to be completely fine when separated for any period of time. Fiona is, like her buddy Harlowe, a serious cat chaser according to the shelter. So for now she will be looking for a home where there are no small animals. Because we do not know how she is with young children, Fiona will also be looking for an adult home with older children if any. Stay tuned!

Harlowe - MEDICAL HOLD
Photos
Meet Miss Harlowe! This little girl is a ‘flashy’ Boxer. She came in from a shelter along with Fiona and, for now, we are treating them as a bonded pair. If, however, they continue to demonstrate indifference during the others’ absence, we will place them in separate homes if the options seem more favorable for them. Harlowe is about 4 years of age with a moderate energy, easily settled once things quiet around her. She has proven to be a real Velcro girl who loves being close to humans, especially if they have cookies! She has been exposed to other dogs in the last couple of days and seems to be initially hesitant to get close, but once it appears to her there is no threat she will simply lay down and relax. So careful introductions are a must. Harlowe is rumored to have been a serious cat chaser previously, and as a result we must assume for now she has a very strong prey drive and should not be placed in a home with small animals. As she is new to the Rescue, she is on a MEDICAL HOLD until we better understand her health situation. Harlowe will soon be looking for an appropriate foster home so stay tuned for updates on this sweet girl!

Henry
Photos
Henry is a very sweet, gentle and shy little boy that is approximately 2 years old.  He came to us from a rescue in Thailand and has made great strides learning English and getting accustomed to his new life in America. He still has a little “stranger danger” that will be an ongoing need for training and reassurance. Wary and shy at first with strangers, he warms up nicely to those who are patient and calm and come bearing a gentle head, butt or belly rub.

Henry loves having an older sibling and doggie friend in the house.  He loves aligning himself with a four legged sibling to show him the way around the house, yard and neighborhood. He will do best in a home with an older dog as a buddy, friend and mentor who is kind, polite and secure.

He has quickly learned what doggie toys are and can be seen frequently wagging his tail wildly as he makes his way through the toy bin.

He is a graceful and gentle walker on a leash and follows all walking commands.  He particularly loves walking with a doggie sibling or friend.  He will greet all dogs with a tail wag and curiosity, but stills becomes a little wary with loud and unpredictable sounds on a walk, such as a bike that rides by him unexpectedly.  With a positive feedback and on-the-spot reassurance, he recovers quickly and happily continues on his walk.

He is an agile and silly puppy when it comes to play time and has fun cases of the “zoomies” at night when his humans and siblings want to play with him. He quickly settles down when his humans tell him that play time is over and bed time is near.  When it comes to bed time, he is a quiet little angel and will sleep on his dog bed or his human’s bed until morning.

Please consider this sweet and gentle little boy with medium energy. He will benefit greatly from work in the trust and reassurance area and needs a low-key home that is calm and the humans are loving and soothing. Older children are fine as he seems to trust them very quickly.

Jimmy '17
Photos
Jimmy, a 2-yr old Golden mix, arrived in rescue several months ago. He had a rough former life and spent his total life outdoors surviving. After spending time with our volunteers, his life has changed drastically. Everyone who meets him just loves him. He is a very happy boy! This small Golden mix is very, very sweet and loves attention. He loves to play ball and go for walks. Jimmy is good on his leash and very good on his car rides. He would do well in an adult home where someone is home during the day for frequent potty breaks and play times. He is good with other dogs but has not been tested with cats. He enjoys attention and being with people, plus sleeping on his dog bed. Jimmy is enjoying his time with his foster family but is now ready for his forever home.

Kipling

Kipling is a great and very handsome 7-yr old.   He came in to rescue in terrible condition but after time with us, he has gained weight, his coat is GORGEOUS, and he is still looking for his forever home.   We have discovered his real name, Oso, and he responds to that with obedience commands like sit, down, shake, come, heel.   He had been a much loved dog at one time.  He enjoys spending time with our volunteers, going for nice easy walks - he now has a bounce in his walk and loves the time on the walk "checking out all the bushes".    He is housebroken, loves to sleep on his dog bed, is great taking his treats with a gentle mouth,  and is still looking for his forever home.   The perfect home would be one with a single owner and no other dogs - he is fine with dogs on his walks but prefers to not have to share attention with another dog in the home.  He does not like other dogs running up in to his face on walks but once he has met them, he very quietly goes off walking with them.   He enjoyed meeting my own dog and she thought he was a very handsome boy.  He would do great all day while his owner is working and really prefers to sleep on his dog bed and wait for someone to come home.   A couple pats on the head and he is totally happy with that.   Then the owner could make dinner, watch TV and if Oso wants to, he can come watch TV with her/him.  He's not a huggy, grabby dog, just a great companion and a pat on the head makes him very happy.

Lucilla
Photos
Meet Lucilla, a beautiful 8-year old blonde golden. Lucilla (or Lucy as we like to call her) is professionally obedience trained and understands basic commands. She is good with other dogs and has lived with different cats. Her favorite things include going to the beach and playing ball in the yard. She LOVES playing fetch with our volunteers. She enjoys playtime with them so much that they often get tired out before she does! She is housebroken, good on a leash and in the car.

Lucilla’s perfect home would be an adult home with no kids (or kids who visit often) with a yard to play in.  She is very sweet but can scare easily so she needs to find a home with someone who is home more than not during the day. She needs an owner who is patient and loving and is willing to work with her should any anxiety issues arise. Even though she loves to play ball in the yard, she shouldn’t be left outside alone for long periods of time. She is definitely a housedog. If you’re willing to make the commitment to nurture this sweet girl, she could be the perfect dog for you

Mamie
Photos
Mamie is a very sweet 1-year-old small golden retriever mix. She is great with other dogs and loves everyone she meets. We are unsure about cats. She is a bundle of energy and loves to go on walks and play with her tennis ball. Mamie is a friendly, happy, healthy girl and would be great in a home with a large yard so she can run and play. She has a tendency to “bolt” so she should be supervised when outside or in the backyard at all times. She’s a typical puppy who barks and whines so living in an apartment won’t work for her. An adult-only home is preferred but she would be okay in a home with periodic visit from kids or grandkids. She would do best in a home with someone there a lot and could take her running or long walks.
She’s good on a leash and good in the car. If you are looking for a sweet, young girl who loves attention, Mamie would be the perfect companion.

Morgan '18
Photos
Morgan is a smallish 7 year old Golden mix rescued from an area shelter.  This munchkin seems to have been neglected since he was flea infested and has some worn out and broken teeth.  When our volunteer first visited him at the shelter (before he became available), he would not even stick his head out to be seen, the second visit and since he has been the most loving and delightful little guy imaginable.  Out of the shelter and all the way to our vet he cuddled with our volunteer in her arms, full of kisses.  He know some basic commands and walks very nicely on the leash.  Happy to go where you go.  He loves belly rubs and will stop on his walks to lie on the nice cool grass and roll over for some.  All the volunteers who have met him want SO MUCH to take him home. So far he has not demonstrated much interested in cats or dogs on his walks just enjoying his surroundings.  We are still learning about him but we are excited to see this guy blossom every day.

Scrappy
Photos
Scrappy is an 8 year old boy who was surrendered by his owner to a shelter. We are calling him a Golden Retriever mix, but he looks very similar to a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. Unfortunately, he won't tell us his parentage. When he came to Rescue his teeth and gums were in bad shape, but now are clean and shiny. He had no other health issues. His owner had told the shelter that he was an outside dog and didn't like little dogs and cats and barked at everything. We've walked him past little barking dogs and he showed no interest. He does pull towards cats. And the only barking we've observed is at Fed Ex and mail trucks.

Scrappy has perfect/exceptional house manners.  He loves his foster family and will cuddle as long as you like.  His foster mom has discovered a fun trick where he will sit on his hind end with front paws up like giving a “high five”. He does love to go outside where he is on the mission to rid the yard of squirrels and birds (very Duck Toller of him).  He has also demonstrated some pointing while outside.  Scrappy likes to run the fence in a playful manner with both neighbors who have small dogs.  No barking though.  He has been very quiet but also very smart.  When he wants to go running with his foster mom, he brings her sneaker to her and drops it in front of her.  He has great stamina and has run 1-1/2 to 2 miles with his foster mom.  Also, perfect running along side her, no zigzag or in front.  Like most Retrievers he would prefer an adopter who is home most of the time. Scrappy will best fit in a home without a small dog or cats and with humans that will love giving snuggles while getting them back in return.

Vanna '18
Photos
Vanna is a 7 year old Golden Retriever Mix who was rescued from an area shelter when her owner did not come to get her.  Her temperament is all golden as she is a sweetheart full of love and kisses.  Her favorite activity is walking and getting treats.  Unfortunately, she has partaken a bit too much of the food and treats so we are working very hard to help her loose some weight.  She has been very excited when we first start off on a walk but settles down and proves to be a nicely mannered pup.  She rides nicely in the car and is very comfortable with every one she meets.  She greets everyone like they are the best person on the planet.  We have not been able to introduce her to cats so a home without any would be best.  She seems excited to meet other dogs and has walked nicely with a canine buddy.
