Arnie
Photos
Arnie is a 9-month old Golden mix who came in to rescue with his mom and sister.  He is very sweet, loves everyone and enjoys having another dog as a playmate and to hang out with.  He loves his walks and is doing very well in his foster home but now he needs to find his forever home.  He is housebroken, good in the home but remember he is a puppy.   His perfect home would be one with another dog to play with and hang out with, someone who will love him and know that a puppy is an open book to train, love, and adore.  He came in to rescue a scared little guy, but he has blossomed in to a handsome, happy boy.  He occasionally gets to see his mother and his sister and oh, boy, do they have a blast playing.

Aurora

Meet Aurora, she is sweet 9 month old puppy with a beautiful white coat and cream markings. She came into rescue shy and extremely scared but after a little TLC from the staff and volunteers she soon blossomed into a sweet and happy puppy. It will take time for her to completely settle in and feel safe but we are confident she will continue to grow and become a member of the family in no time. The ideal fur-ever home would be an adult only home with another dog. She is playful, good with other dogs and even cats; she would thrive with another well-behaved doggie that can show her the ropes. She is currently in foster and each day we see her confidence and personality shine through. When not helping her foster mom at work she is at home snuggling and watching TV, she enjoys lazy days but if you say “potty” she’s ready to have some outdoor fun! She smiles when you talk to her, yes she actually smiles and oh boy does she know how to sit for a T-R-EA-T. She is an adorable little girl waiting for a home full of love.

Chloe - ADOPTION PENDING

Hello from beautiful Golden mix Chloe!  This darling 3-year old girl came to us from a shelter where she had been turned in as a stray and sat waiting for us until we got the all clear that we could run out to bring her into rescue. Well she’s now had a beauty day at the spa, and is healed from her spay surgery. She is very easy on leash (with the exception of those times when she sees bunnies, squirrels, and lizards!) Chloe has great mobility, and so far hasn’t shown any anxiety around other large calm dogs on her walks and during one on one meetings. She seems to have a moderate energy, settles easily, and has been very sweet to most people she’s met since coming in to rescue. The exception was a handyman type situation when she became anxious as he came and left the house each time while installing a large appliance. Because of her youth Chloe will be looking for a home where someone is home most of the time.  If you have interest in fostering or adopting this little 43 lb girl who seems to adore human affection, please submit our online Adoption Application and a home visit volunteer will contact you shortly. Please stay tuned for updates!

8/23 Update: Chloe has now spent some time in a foster situation and we have learned that she prefers not to live with cats, small busy dogs get her very excited, and she tends to want to protect her territory (new home) and owner/caregiver from strange visitors. She seems to be fine with large and calm dogs and especially loves women. Chloe has healed from her spay surgery and proves to be in excellent health. She would love a home with a big grassy fenced in yard where she can chase critters to her heart’s content! She would also do best in a home where there aren’t a lot of people coming and going throughout the day at least until she settles into her new home.

Dude

Dude is sweet, silent, and on the smaller side. He is around 62lbs and looks very much like a Nova Scotia Duck Toller, although he won’t tell us his parentage.  His sweetness is demonstrated with lots of snuggles and cuddles.  His house manners are exceptional including staying pretty quiet in the house. 

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 loves to go outside and quietly patrol the yard for squirrels and birds (very Duck Toller of him).  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.  Like most Retrievers he would prefer an adopter who is home most of the time. Dude 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.

Jeanie is an 8-year-old beautiful girl who recently came into rescue. We are still learning about her but she appears to be good with other big dogs.  She hasn’t been tested with smaller dogs or cats. She is a good walker and enjoys playing fetch.  Jeanie is a very sweet, playful, friendly girl and loves everyone she meets.

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.

Laura Ann
Photos
Laura Ann is a beautiful, sweet and gentle girl who was surrendered to us by her owner. Although, well loved, her care came to be too much financial responsibility. As we all know, basic food, grooming and preventive care for dogs is not inexpensive. 

Laura Ann is a a sweet, snuggly shadow dog. Her big, fluffy paws will come thumping towards the door the second she hears you and will greet you with an enthusiastic tail wag and a plushy toy in her mouth. She is a true lady and exhibits excellent manners both in the house and riding in a car and she can entertain herself and behave calmly when left alone. She's also a sucker for a chest rub and quickly lays down to submit herself and her shiny golden coat and doe eyes to pets. This dog shows nothing but unconditional love to humans. She, sadly, can't say the same for all canine friends given some baggage from her past. Other dogs stress her out and she exhibits some fearful behavior while looking for constant reassurance from her person. She would be best as the only doggie in your life and will need training to help soothe her anxiety about other dogs on walks. Her previous owner told us that she may be scared of cats of first but then reacts kindly towards them, especially towards kittens. We also have been told that she is sensitive to fireworks and thunder. She is a total sweetheart and is looking for a family that will give her the stability she deserves. She is about 4 years old and is 70 pounds of pure doggie love.

Lucia - ADOPTION PENDING

Meet Lucia…a very sweet little purebred Golden girl who recently came to us from a shelter.  Lucia is estimated to be about 5 years of age, weighs 63 lbs, is very sweet and affectionate with people, loves to go for walks and she has great leash manners. She’s had some training with obedience and enjoys showing her smarts! When she first came in to rescue she showed signs of neglect and we have been working on getting her healthier so she will be more comfortable. She’s now very close to being ready to ‘go home!’ In the next few days we will address some dental issues and an old untreated ‘cherry eye’ issue.  Lucia is not obese, but can afford to lose a few pounds.  Fortunately, she loves to get out to exercise and roll in the grass. Lucia gets a little excited around strange dogs at first, but we’ve now introduced her to a few calmer ones and it appears she is simply wanting to play... and play like a young pup! She visits the resident kitties in the vet hospital and doesn’t seem to mind them at all. Once Lucia is done with her makeover, she will have a bubble bath and enjoy some long needed grooming. She will be looking for a foster or forever family, so if you feel Lucia could be a good fit for your living situation and you are looking for an affectionate Golden girl, please fill out an  Adoption Application.

Miles

Miles is a 2 year old boy who is now looking for his forever home.   He is currently in training to work with his leash manners and is making great progress.   He came to us with this issue and with professional help, he is improving.  His forever home should be one with no children, preferable a male owner as he seems to relate to men better than women in his previous home.   He is good with other dogs has lived with a female companion, has lived with a cat but will chase it if it runs, will not hurt.   Miles is afraid of loud noises and sudden loud noises so no homes where he would be exposed to them and take in to note that on the 4th, he should be removed from the source.   He can, however, be soothed but they still scare him.   He does well in the yard and does not dig or climb out.   Had previously been a yard dog but has been in a home recently and is housebroken now.  He had good manners in the home also.  His forever home needs to be committed to continuing his leash training.

Stanley Sweetness
Photos
What a story this boy has so far!   Animal control found this boy in a tent set up by a homeless person.  He was caught munching on some marijuana plants so the shelter administered medications to counter the toxicitity of the cannabis.  Stanley did very well with the treatment and had no side effects or damage from the drugs.  

Living on the streets did not allow for this boy to get any medical care as he was not neutered, overweight, had ear infections, some dental tarter, hair loss and fleas, and tested positive for hypothyroidism.  Now neutered and getting medication for his ear infections and hypothyroidism, along with a few baths, Stanley is feeling and looking better.  He does have some arthritis but we have also started him on some anti-inflammatories to help with the stiffness.  Once the medication kicks in and becomes therapeutic, Stanley will be able to loose some weight which will help with his arthritic issues.  

We have discovered that he likes to play and fetch the ball and will bring it back and drop at your feet.  His house manners have been great and he likes to go for walks..  He seems to love the indoors and he does some communicating through snorts, quite hilarious.  He is getting along fine with his foster brother and he does not react much to cats.  He loves to ride in the car and will sit and just look out the back window the entire time.  Of course, his favorite thing to do is eat, (typical!).  But, he will need a home that will be diligent in his weight loss journey so that his joints don’t suffer.

TC

TC is an adorable, smaller, Golden mix, who is 4 years old.  He is housebroken, has been crate trained, rides well in the car, and LOVES his walks.  He is healthy, happy, friendly, and loves everyone he meets.   He enjoys walking with a buddy and while he may bark at another dog on his walk, once he meets them, he's their buddy also.  He would love to have a yard to play in and his favorite pastime is "bush diving" and lizard chasing.  When he goes out for his walks, he's constantly looking for critters, bugs, lizards, just everything in the bushes so he can try to get them.

TC's perfect forever home would be with a person who loves to take him on walks  - no hiking but nice walks to check out the neighborhood. He would be best as a single dog in the home but he’s okay walking with another friendly dog.  No cats due to his wanting to chase everything.  He is friendly with older children but he has not been around small children, so visiting older children would be fine. He has done fine in his previous home being alone during the day, so with proper access to outside and a secure yard, he would do well.

TC is happy, healthy, playful, and looking for his forever home.
