Aida
Photos
Aida is a sweet senior who was left at the shelter. The shelter is no place for any senior to be so we gladly took her into rescue to find her a loving home with lots of TLC. Aida's age is not known but we believe her to be between 10-12 years old. She has some arthritis so is a little slow to get up but she enjoys and does fine with short walks. Aida likes being with her loved ones and will gently nudge you to pet her. She is fine with other dogs but we don't know how she feels about cats. Aida will make someone a very nice companion.

Buddy '17
Photos
Buddy is a very handsome 6-7 year old boy with the energy of a 4 year old.  He is housebroken and will be the perfect companion for the right adopter.  His forever home should be with an active dog savvy person, or couple, that will take him on long walks in different places so he gets to see a lot of varied landscape and situations.  He’s an active boy and would love a home where he goes on hikes and to dog parks to socialize.   He will need a home with a good amount of mental stimulation, like toys of all kinds and not just be left alone all day to keep himself busy.   Buddy knows sit and shake on command, his leash skills are good, and he enjoys being around other dogs.   A long daily walk or hike is a must in his forever home.  

Buddy will only go to an adult home with no children, or cats – we have not tested him with cats but we feel it is best to not have them in the household.  Oh, and he LOVES to go for car rides.

Cobi

Cobi is an approximately 9 year old, male Golden/lab mix. Cobi came to rescue when he ended up in a shelter. He has a quintessen-tial Golden/Labrador temperament and personality, he is super sweet and gentle. He has learned to use the doggie door in his foster home. He loves to go on walks, but short ones as he tires. If you are looking for a companion to hang out with and love, Cobi is the boy for you. Cobi gets along with dogs, but we don’t know about cats.

Dolly '17

Dolly is a gorgeous 8 year old girl, who recently arrived in rescue.   She is great with other dogs, both male and female as you can see.   Dolly is housebroken, quiet and very well mannered.   She is slightly overweight and has some medical issues.   Dolly loves to go for her walks, which are at an easy pace, and is very good in the car.

If you are looking for a sweet, adorable, friendly new friend, check out Dolly.

Jimmy '17
Photos
Jimmy is now looking for his forever home.   He is a smaller 2 year old Golden mix, who came to us in very bad condition.   His fur was very sparse, had an infection on one paw, had a large wound on his rear, and had been shot at with a BB Gun - we found BB's when we took x-rays.  He is now healthy and looking for his forever home.  Jimmy came to us terrified and afraid to even go outside.  Now he happily goes for his walks twice a day and ventures out to play on the grass and stroll along the sidewalks.  Jimmy will go to a single dog home with no cats.  He is fine walking with other dogs but does  not like them to come charging up to his face.  Walking beside each other is nice but wild and frisky companions scare him.  We have not tested with cats so he will not go in to a home with them. He's a sweet boy and has just blossomed in to a very nice young man.  He is 2 but those 2 years were hard years and now he needs a quiet, happy, understanding home.   Initially I would say no children in the home but they could come visit.   We have not tested him in a home with children, young or older.    He walks good on his leash, and is good in the car.

Kipling
Photos
Kipling is a wonderful, very sweet boy, who is now thought to be around 7 years old.  He came in to rescue in very poor condition and in great need of our help.  He is doing much better now and is looking for his forever home.  He has been tested with other larger dogs and is very gentle and good with his interactions.  My own personal dog thought he was a great guy.  He walks very well on his leash and enjoys spending time with the volunteers and hanging out laying around in the grass.  He even surprised us recently when we called him and asked him to sit, which he immediately did.  We all just stood with our mouth open and asked him to do it again.  What a delight.  Kipling is a quiet boy, a little hesitant upon initial meetings with men, but very happy to see women.  
 
Kipling loves treats and is a very gentle boy taking them, even highly prized treats.  If you would like a good companion, please check out this boy.

Mr. Miyagi
Photos
Little Mr. Miyagi recently came into rescue from a local shelter. This little two year old boy only weighs 38 pounds and he looks like a miniature Golden Retriever. Most likely, Mr. Miyagi is a mix of some sort, possibly Golden Retriever and Cocker Spaniel, but we don't know for sure. He seems to be a happy guy and has done fine with all people he's met so far. We don't know much about him yet, but he will need a home where all children are 7 years and older. Mr. Miyagi is recovering from neuter surgery. He should be available for adoption soon.

Nash
Photos
Nash came into rescue from a local shelter. He is a big boy, weighing about 130 pounds. This is too much weight for Nash but he will still always be large. We think he may be mixed with Golden Retriever and another large breed dog. Due to a low thyroid gland (not uncommon in dogs), Nash has had trouble losing weight. Now that he's on the correct medication (very inexpensive), he should start taking weight off much more easily. The low thyroid has also been responsible for his hair being so thin and not having much hair on his tail. These will go back to normal as he continues on his medication. Nash is a sweet, gentle 5 year old boy. He does not seem to mind other dogs and approaches them with curiosity. He will make someone a very nice companion. He has a lower energy level but that may change as his thyroid becomes more normal and he takes off some weight. We are still learning about him so we will update this information as we learn more.

Marisol's Puppies
Photos
Marisol’s puppies were born on July 6, 2017 to their mother, Marisol, after she arrived in rescue.  All the puppies were given a 4th of July themed name.    Volunteers and staff members are the vet hospital where they were born sent in suggestions and names were picked.    They will be available to go in to a foster home to adopt when they are 8 weeks old.   The pups will have their first set of puppy shots and will be available to approved homes.   They are Goldeny mix puppies and their father’s info is unknown.   All pups are healthy, well socialized, and are now developing their personalities.   We have 2 males – Blue and Boomer, and 4 females – Indy, Sweet Lips, Bell and Liberty.

Rhett Butler
Photos
Rhett is a beautiful red 18 month old golden. He loves running and playing with his tennis balls. He also loves playing in the wading pool!When handled roughly Rhett has reacted by biting (not causing serious damage) on two separate occasions. He is in training doing extremely well. But there is always the latent possibility with rough handling. The head trainer commented that Rhett is very smart and trainable. He is very treat motivated when training. Rhett needs to be the only dog in the home, no kids or cats for this boy.  We would like Rhett to go to a dog savvy permanent or foster home, where his training will continue. Rhett would be happiest in a calm environment where people are home more often than not to reduce typical puppy behavior.

Sully '17

Sully is a very handsome gentleman who is 10 years old, healthy, not on any medicine, is housebroken, and great with other dogs, both big and small.    He enjoys his walks and is very good on the leash.   Sully has lived with cats and is very good with them.  Our sweet boy enjoys car rides and is a very quiet boy.    He's a love bug and enjoys snuggling up with you.   You couldn't ask for a more perfect companion.
