Alfie '16
Photos
Alfie is a 12 year old boy who is housebroken, good with other dogs, don't know his experiences with cats, and will not be place in a home with children - from past experience in his former home, he is not comfortable being around children.    Alfie walks great on his leash and enjoys going on his walks with another dog.   He is an older boy but sure is perky for his age.   He would do well in a home that is single story even though he has no trouble with stairs now.   Another older dog would be good for him and he just loves attention.    He's pretty healthy for his age.   His left eye requires medication but we have run all the tests and other than requiring eye ointment, he does not need any other medications.

Baldwin
Photos
Baldwin is now available for adoption.   He is a fun loving, happy, 4-5 year old boy who has had his story on the Shamrock page previously.   He's healthy, loves other dogs both big and small, old and young.   He's also a real people dog and can "work a crowd" like an expert.   Baldwin would do well if he was trained to be a pet therapy dog because he so loves people.   He still has a lot of energy and while not perfect - has that twinkle in his eye, like what can I get in to - he is a joy to have around.   I'm so happy we have got weight on him and he is healthy.   He had a rough start in rescue but for someone who would enjoy his great personality, take him places to see things and people, and love him, he is the perfect dog.

Buster '16

Meet Buster - The sweetest goofball you will ever meet! Buster loves everyone, other dogs, people and kids. He's especially loves his person and wants to be where you are, if that means sitting on the couch with you - so be it. He will sleep by your feet if you’re on the computer and will definitely be by your side in the kitchen! Some of Buster’s favorite things are riding in the car, chewing on bones, playing with toys and his very favorite thing is - let’s play ball! He can even carry two tennis balls at once! He wants to go with you whenever you have to run errands and will hang his big old head out the window. He went to dog beach the other day and thought that was pretty darn cool too. He is just the mellowest happy boy but will get really excited when he sees you pick up his leash - He may be 8 but he acts like 4. Meet Buster and you will definitely fall for this boy.

Cameron '16
Photos
Cameron is a 2 year old Goldendoodle who is housebroken, crate trained, obedience trained using the clicker method, healthy, loves everyone, and now seeking a forever home.   He is good on this leash walks and is used to walking with a "gentle leader" and has been trained to walk with this method.   Cameron is good with other dogs, don't know about little ones but he has been around my own dog and had lived with several large ones.   He also loves to go to doggy day care for play time with other dogs.  He tends to be a pushy boy so would do better as a single dog, or with one that doesn't mind being pestered.   He is good in the car and a very, very sweet boy.  Currently he is on anxiety medication which was started by original owner and continued while he is in rescue.   He's a quiet boy, medication keeps him focused, and he listens well to his handler.

Chester '16

Chester recently arrived in rescue.  As you can see, he is a gorgeous dark gold 2 year old boy.   He is good with other dogs, don't know about cats or small children.   Chester is housebroken, rides well in the car, enjoys going for a nice walk and loves attention.   He would do well in a home where someone is home a lot, doesn't have to be all the time, but I don't think he would enjoying being alone during a long work day.   He loves his people and the interaction.   He likes to play ball, also.

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.

Cookie '16
Photos
Cookie is a 5 year old girl who is now looking for her forever home.   She is good with other dogs, very sweet, loving girl.   She is not good with cats and will bark at them if she sees them.   Cookie appears to be housebroken, walks great on the leash and is good in the car.  She's a bigger girl at 80 pounds but not considered fat.   She is healthy, friendly and a calm girl.   Cookie loves to go for her walks, prefers shaded areas with no busy street traffic - tends to frighten her - and would be a great dog for hiking on trails and quiet areas. I have no knowledge of her living with small children, so will only go to an older child home.

Darwin '16
Photos
This extremely friendly and lovable boy came into Rescue when his family had to move and couldn’t take him with them. He is a Golden mix, (with darn cute ears) and has all of the characteristics of a ‘Golden’ personality. He is gentle, lovable and a true Velcro dog. He loves to ride in the car with his head out a slightly lowered window, walks well on a leash, knows and obeys basic commands, wants to please, and gets along well with all the other dogs in his foster home. When he first came to us, he needed assistance with his house training and over the weeks has come a long long way.  It may well have been him merely marking his territory with four other boys in his foster home.  He’s a cuddle-bug to the point that he snuggles right next to his foster dad throughout the night.  He is a true treasure, waiting to be discovered, and deserves a fur-ever home where he will be loved, pampered, and cared for.

Driscoll
Photos
Driscoll is a 2 year old boy who is very active, playful and will only go to a home with no children or cats.  He is good with other dogs.   Driscoll is healthy, knows some obedience moves but needs a refresher course.   As you can see from these photos, we are currently walking him with an Easy-Walker Harness.   He will pull if another means of walking is used.    His ideal home would be one that is home more often than not due to his need for training and management in his first going home days.   He would love one with a large yard for playing, experienced adopter, someone committed to taking him to training, and a person willing to put in time with him to make sure he develops good habits.    He is not a dog for a first time dog owner, someone with kids of any age, no experience with rescue dogs, or someone that is gone for long hours every day.

Hemingway '16

Hemingway is a 7 year old Golden mix, who is healthy, happy and just loves everyone.  He is housebroken, walks good on his leash, is good with other dogs, don't know about cats, loves kids but since I have no knowledge of him living with small children, he can't be placed with them.  He is good in the car, friendly with everyone and is now looking for his forever home.  Yes, he is a mix but I wish every dog that I worked with had this Golden personality.

Leila '16
Photos
Leila is a 10 year old, blond, female Golden. Her family moved to an area where there were a lot of fireworks and a nearby quarry with lots of loud noises. Leila was extremely upset by all this noise, so her family decided that she would be happier in a new home. She is housebroken and knows how to use a doggie door. She walks well on a leash, doesn’t pull or bark at other dogs.  She seems to enjoy car rides and squeaky toys.  She knows basic commands. Lelia gets along with everyone, even the foster family's feisty Shih Tzu most of the time.

Lollipop
Photos
Lollipop is a lovely white Golden Retriever mix who came from a local shelter. She’s a high-energy, two year-old pup. She does not appear to have had any socialization with other dogs so she will be looking for a home where there are no other pets right now. Lollipop needs a home where her new family has some time to spend helping her with learning all that a young pup needs to know. She is already learning to follow commands and she gets along nicely with everyone she’s met. Lollipop has been known to do a little dance routine on her hind legs when she’s happy, and she always seems happy.

Nellie '16

Nellie is a sweet 6 year-old we rescued from a local shelter.  She’s a calm girl who loves her car rides.  Her thyroid balance was off when she came to us, so we’re getting that adjusted, and she’ll be just fine with an inexpensive daily thyroid medication.  She has been a darling with our volunteers and is now ready for a home of her own.  We’re looking for a family with no other pets where Nellie can get lots of TLC.

Pikachu - MEDICAL HOLD

Pikachu is a 10 year-old boy we found at the shelter.  He is on the small side and has a very mellow personality.  He is good with other dogs and he likes to follow around the people he attaches himself to.  We’re currently helping him gain a few pounds, and when he reaches a healthier weight, he’ll be looking for a quiet home where he can settle in and get a lot of tender, loving care.

Savannah '16
Photos
Savanah is a 12 year old girl who recently arrived and when I say, sweet, she is definitely the sweetest, friendly big girl you would ever want.   I was told at the shelter where she was picked up that they estimated her to be 12 but after meeting her and working with her, she looks closer to 8.   She came in to the shelter in terrible condition with mats all over her body and skin infections that needed treated.   As soon as she came in to rescue she was bathed and the groomer started working on her coat.   She needed to be totally shaved down even to the very end of her tail.   She is much more comfortable and this will give us time for her skin to heal.   Savannah is great on her leash walks, good in the car, friendly with just everyone she meets - both human and dogs alike.   I don't know how she feels about cats though.   She is currently on a weight loss program at her foster home since she came in to rescue at 123 pounds.  I just say there is more to love.

7/28/16 - Savannah went for a recheck at the vets today to see how much weight she has lost on her program.   She is now down to 117, looking good and enjoying her walks and hanging out in her foster home.
