Annabelle
Photos
Please meet beautiful Annabelle! This happy 6-8 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 - ADOPTED!

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. Living outside may have stimulated an interest in those pesky squirrels. Getting along with other dogs looks encouraging. He has walked past barking, aggressive fenced dogs and continued calmly past them. He has shown some excitement over moving neighborhood cats but usually just stands and watches. 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.  Initially we were looking for a pet free home, but with encouraging indicators on comfort with other dogs, we might consider placement with a settled mature dog. Is there room in your home for Nottingham and Forest?

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

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. Getting along with other dogs looks encouraging. He has walked past barking, aggressive fenced dogs and continued calmly past them. He has shown some excitement over moving neighborhood cats but usually just stands and watches. He loves his son but can get annoyed if the sons jumps on him and will advise him to back off.  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.

Sadie

Hello! My name is Sadie. I am a smaller senior girl at 53 lbs., and move and act like I’m only 8-9 years old.  The shelter and my rescue vet told them I am probably 12-13. I love to go out on nice walks and although I probably am not going to be a hiker, I move very well on my walks and don’t present with mobility issues when doing so. The shelter said I came in with two other dogs who were adopted there. I begin to whine a bit and have a kind of muted bark when I see other dogs, but half the time I reject their offers of friendship. I have a beautiful thick coat and they just gave me the first bubble bath I have had in a long time. The groomers all said I was a pro at that and they all loved on me. I really enjoyed just being with all those other dogs having their spa day too!  I appear to have a severe hearing deficit, so an adult home would probably be the best arrangement for me. I am a bit of a mix and although they cannot say exactly what that is, I sure am the sweetest thing and am learning to really trust these humans since I first came in to rescue. I am now ready to go to a foster or forever home so if you think you might have just the right place for me to be safe and happy, please submit an Adoption Application and indicate your interest.

Update 04-04-19: After introducing Sadie to a few more dogs recently in home situations, it appears she may need to be the only pet in the home. She acts as though she wants to be with them but then gets rather snarky on closer introduction. So we are hoping there is a home for Sadie where she can spend the rest of her life in comfort, while still able to go out for nice walks at least once daily. If you have the kind of home Sadie would enjoy and you might be willing to either adopt or permanently foster her, rescue will cover the medical expenses for a foster arrangement. Currently Sadie is not on any meds and has shown to most likely be housebroken as she always wants to run outside to do her business if taken out for a walk or backyard play time. Sadie is very affectionate and loves all the adults she’s met.

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.
