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.

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.

Dougal
Photos
Dougal is a sweet, little 8-year old Golden Retriever mix. He came to Rescue from a shelter, weighing 38 pounds and with cracked, crusty paws so severe he could hardly walk. After medications, loving care and paw soaks, he now enjoys long walks, demonstrating surprising stamina, and has bulked up to a healthy weight. He has a little arthritis, but has no issue with steps or jumping up on a sofa or bed. Dougal can be a tail wagging machine. He loves belly rubs, attention, hugs and will happily sit next to you on the sofa, or lay on the floor nearby. He loves his stuffed toys, but ignores tennis balls. He gets a little excited walking on a leash, when he sees another dog, but will calm down quickly. Dougal can live as a single dog or with other dogs, but he might want to be the man in charge. He would be fine with older children, but we have no experience with younger children, so we would avoid that environment. Please consider this middle aged, low/medium energy cuddle bug for your home.

Fabian '17
Photos
Fabian is an adorable, friendly, sweet smaller boy who is either not quite a year old or just turned 1 year.  He is a gorgeous boy, does pull on the leash, but knows sit and can gently take a treat.  He likes to shake paws and is a healthy, happy boy.   Fabian came in to rescue with his brother, but will be placed separately only because having two young pups to train would be a big task.  He is good with other dogs, don't know about cats, can't go to young children under 8 as he has not been tested with young children and we don't know if he ever was in a home with a young child.  He came in to rescue very scared, did not know what to expect but over the first days that we had him, he blossomed in to a sweet, happy, friendly pup.  We do not know house or housebroken information as he has not been placed in a foster home to date.

Fido '17
Photos
Fido is a very handsome 2 year old boy who is now ready to find his forever home.  He is healthy and appears to have had previous training.   In working with him this past week, we now know he will sit, down, stay, catch and is gentle with his treats.   He knows voice commands and hand signals.   Fido loves to catch his treat if you throw it to him and enjoys being touched all over his body, even his tail.   He appears housebroken.   His only thing that he needs work on is his pulling on the leash.  With the proper collar or harness, he does much better.   This boy would love a home that takes him for long walks, has a yard to play ball in, and can even go running with him.    Nice boy, looking for a forever home.    He has not been tested with children or cats so currently will only go to an adult home or one with older children.

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

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.

Mickey '17
Photos
Mickey is a gorgeous, friendly, happy, either under a year or just barely a year old boy who recent came in to rescue along with his brother.  He is friendly, happy, and a very photogenic pup.  These adorable photos show his personality.  He is good with other dogs, don't know about cats, and currently will not go to a home with children under 8.  He has not been tested with children or cats and is only around adults currently. Mickey know sit, does pull on the leash and would benefit by positive reinforcement training as would his brother.  We do not currently have house manners nor housebroken information until he has gone to a foster home to assess that information.

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.

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 home, with a large grass yard, and with continued help from a professional trainer.  Rhett would be happiest in a calm environment where people are home more often than not to reduce typical puppy behavior.
