Annabelle
Photos
Please meet beautiful Annabelle! This happy 8 yr old gal was recently sprung from a local shelter where she was reported to have come in as a stray. We were very fortunate to have a volunteer able to make the trip out to help her make her great escape! She spent a couple of weeks at the vet clinic recovering from kennel cough and then later a procedure to repair some dental issues. She has had a couple of bubble baths and now spent a few weeks in a foster home where we have recently learned more about her. Annabelle is a very affectionate girl who loves human attention and craves belly rubs. She could stand to lose a few pounds and has been working on rediscovering her girlish figure again. She has displayed no mobility issues, loves to get out for walks, and is pretty easy on the leash. She has very recently displayed some reactivity to strange dogs while out on her walks, so some group socialization classes may help improve her self confidence and trust in this area.  With proper and respectful dog-dog introductions Annabelle has shown the ability to accept other large calm dogs into her ‘walking pack.’ As well Annabelle showed no interest in the 3 resident kitties at the vet she spent so much time at. Annabelle is looking for an adult family where someone is home during the day time more often than not. As it appears, she has previously been an outdoor dog, so Annabelle will need some additional housetraining in any new home.

CiCi
Photos
This sweet, senior, sugar face 10-year old girl is looking for someone who wants a mellow companion to hang out with.  CiCi came to us because her owner died.  She was very sad and did not understand all the changes.  You see, she had been with her owner since she was a puppy.  Now, CiCi has started to blossom and is happy again.  I know her pictures don’t quite show her smiles but on the inside the smiles are bright.    She gets excited when her favorite foster brother comes home and is so adoring of him.  CiCi is loosing weight now that we have her on the proper thyroid medication and her coat is a beautiful,  thick and soft.  She knows her house manners perfectly and does not demand very much except some love.  She sometimes needs a bit of help to get up when she is on a slippery surface, but does not have any problems on rugs and grass.  She is now taking short and steady walks and looks forward to the Spring so she can smell the roses.  Even though we were told that she lived with a Chihuahua, she is enjoying being the only dog in the house.  If you are looking for a calm and quiet, sweet and loving, perfect senior girl, CiCi may be the one for you.

Forest
Photos
Forest and his father Nottingham were surrendered to us because his family left them exclusively outside for the last year and didn’t think it was a good life for the dogs. They are very attached to each other and we will be trying to place this bonded pair together with a family that will keep them inside and part of the family. Forest is 5 years old and displays some typical puppy golden behavior. He gets extremely anxious if separated from his dad. He is a big strong boy and may pull on his leash, but he walks better with dad alongside.

Forest is blind in one eye but that doesn’t hinder him at all. He is skittish about loud noises, so the surrounding environment will play into his placement. We are not sure about his behaviors around other dogs, cats, and squirrels and are trying to learn more. Living outside may have stimulated an interest in those pesky squirrels. When Forest is sitting calmly, looking at you, giving you his paw, he is irresistible. And watch out for that tail wag or it may bruise your leg. Right now we are looking for a pet free home, so this bonded pair can just enjoy each other. Is there room in your home for Nottingham  and Forest?

Kirby

Please meet very handsome 9-year old Kirby, a beautiful senior purebred boy who came to us because situations in his home life have sadly changed. Kirby is now looking for a new beginning! He is said to have had extensive obedience training and has shown to be a friend to all. He is very gentle, affectionate and, although he has some manageable health issues, most are typical for a gentleman his age. He’s simply looking for a safe and comfy home where he will be allowed to live inside, be loved and kept safe from loud noises such as fireworks, lightening and thunder. He enjoys being outside and, once his toes are healed up, he will be ready to go for daily walks in the neighborhood. As Kirby has only just come to us, we are looking to place him in foster when he is ready to leave the vet hospital. Once we know a little bit more about the temperament of this sweet boy, we will be better able to decide what kind of home he would be most happy being a part of. If you feel you can offer the right kind of foster or forever home for Kirby, please apply on our adoption link and let us know of your interest.

Lucilla
Photos
Meet Lucilla, a beautiful 9-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 become anxious with loud noises (like fire crackers) so she needs to find a home with someone who is home more than not during the day. She is looking for an owner who is patient and loving and is willing to work with her anxiety issues when they 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.

Mick
Photos
Mick recently came into Rescue from a shelter, where he was turned in as a stray. He shared a kennel with another dog at the shelter, an indication that he might be dog friendly. His age has been estimated as somewhere between 8 and 12 years, but he won’t tell us himself. He seems to have all the attributes of a previously loved senior citizen. He is very gentle, friendly, calm and good natured. He doesn’t pull on his leash, bark at other dogs or become upset with garbage trucks. His tail wag is pretty constant.

The first impression of Mick is that he is the perfect “plug and play” dog for a new adopter or people looking for a mellow Golden. At 49 lbs. he will be easy to handle and may do well in a house with steps. We don’t know about his house manners yet, but he should be willing to try pleasing his adopters.

Nash

Meet our 6-yr old gentle giant Nash! Nash is a hoping to start the New Year in a loving home after a long recovery from two ACL surgeries.  He has been a trooper through it all and he is getting stronger and walking further each day. Nash is looking for a quiet home that will help him finish up his recovery.  His ideal home should be a single dog home or one with a mellow female as a companion.  He is a quiet boy, loves to hang out and go for short walks.  Nash is housebroken and has good house manners.  He just wants to hang out, watch the world go by, and have his person to love him.

Nottingham
Photos
Nottingham and his son Forest were surrendered to us because his family left them exclusively outside for the last year and didn’t think it was a good life for the dogs. They are very attached to each other and we will be trying to place this bonded pair together, with a family that will keep them inside and part of the family. Nottingham is a sweet and loving boy, with a ready tail wag. He walks nicely on leash, as befits a 9 year old gentleman. He loves his son but can get annoyed if the sons jumps on him and will advise him to back off. We are trying to observe his behavior with other dogs, cats and squirrels. He has had some training, but sometimes gets so excited he momentarily forgets his sit, stay, paw commands. Nottingham is a big boy, about 95 pounds, so we will try to shred a few pounds. Otherwise he is very healthy.

Everything is so new for this boy now, but a steady home life, with his son Forest in tow, should bring years of happiness to Nottingham and his adoptive family. If you are willing to accept a bonded pair, and are currently pet free, Nottingham and son could be perfect for you.

Paddington
Photos
Very recently we welcomed 7 y.o. new boy Paddington to our rescue. He is a lovely red purebred fella who is already on a special diet to help him begin to shed about 20 lbs! He is very easy on the leash and seems to be quite affectionate. As we are still just learning about this boy we don’t yet know how he will do with other dogs, cats, or very young children. So for now Paddington is looking for a home where someone is home most of the day and is willing to give him plenty of exercise and the kind of diet he will need to continue his path to become a more svelte chap. He appears to have had some obedience training at one time. Paddington will be looking for his foster or forever home very soon as he appears to be healthy other than a couple of ear infections he’s currently being treated for. If you have interest in fostering Paddington when he is ready to go home, and you live near the city of Orange, please fill out an Adoption Application and indicate your interest.

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.
