Sassy

Sassy

Meet beautiful little Sassy!

Sassy is a 12 year old Shih Tzu who is a bit on the hefty side, but has lots of spunk and loves to go on short walks, and loves to play fetch! She is working on losing a few pounds to get down to a healthy weight. Sassy is very smart and has learned the routine of going outside every morning and evening to do her business. If she doesn’t get outside regularly, she may have an accident on the floor. Because routine is important to continue to help her learn, finding a forever home where someone is home part of the day would be preferable.

Sassy gets along well with other dogs and adult people (no young children, please), but backs off from overly active dogs so would do best in a home with more mature or calm natured dogs. Unfortunately we are not sure how she is with cats. She is friendly and affectionate but can be stubborn sometimes too. If she doesn’t want to get out of bed, she can get cranky if you try to force her. However, a treat can often be used to coax her to move herself. Food is a huge motivator for Sassy. She likes to beg for human food by patting you on the leg if she thinks you don’t notice her. If that doesn’t work she may lick your leg.

Sassy has a bit of a skin allergy but takes her one pill per day easily in food.

Sassy’s adoption fee is $200.

Sophie – ADOPTED

Sophie3

Meet Sophie, she is a 5 year old yorkie/chihuahua mix. She is spayed, house trained, and up to date on shots. Accidents will happen if she is left for hours. Sophie has a soft silky coat, and is good to bath.

Sophie loves to cuddle under the covers and enjoys attention. She is a bit shy at first but warms up. She walks well on a leash and is good off the leash in quiet areas. She is a curious girl who is good with other small dogs, but is not a fan of big dogs. She is looking for a home with someone working from home or part time as she loves being around people.
She was raised with children aged 9 and up so we are not sure about very young children. She has been fine around them when they visit. Cats we are not sure of either, as she has never met one.

Sophie looks forward to meeting you and hopes that you can give her the forever home she is looking for!

Sophie’s adoption fee is $200.

Austin and Jazmine

Jazmine and Austin

These two pugs are quite a pair. Aged between 7 and 9, they are very well trained and love to play. Jazmine, the fawn coloured female loves toys and will play with them all day.

Both dogs are crate trained and sleep in their crate at night and when no one is home.

They travel very well and love to go camping and to the beach. Most Pugs don’t like water but that doesn’t stop Austin! He loves to swim. Jaz loves to eat but needs to watch her intake, allergies flare up if she is not careful.

The two of them are to be adopted together. They are a bonded pair and MUST stay together.

Mimosa – ADOPTED

Mosely

Moseley

Hello, my name is Mimosa. I am a senior tri color Pomeranian.
I am around 8 years old. I love to play, and have some toys around. You won’t be
lonely with me, I need a lot of attention.
I LOVE people, but I get really stressed when around other dogs. Playdates are really
not my thing. I get aggressive, so I don’t make friends with other dogs very easily. So if
you don’t like other dogs or expect me to like them, I will be your best friend.
I love short walks. When we are in the yard I don’t need a leash, I will stay close.
I am a good sleeper, I love to cuddle in bed. If you let me, I will stay there all night.
I’m a good eater too, my favorite is sweet potato mixed with my food.

Moseley’s adoption fee is $250.

Windie – ADOPTED

Windie

Windie

My name is Windie, and I am a female Jack Russell Terrier, who weights about 17 pounds.
I am a senior girl at 8 years old, but still have lots of spunk and energy. I love to go for walks and am good with other small dogs. I may have the occasional accident in the house but we are working on that. I only bark if someone I don’t know is on my property. I listen well and love to snuggle under the covers. I prefer women and am afraid of men. I have had a rough life but still willing to give someone special a lot of love and loyalty. I am spayed and up to date on my shots. I am looking for someone who is retired and has time for me because I have been waiting a long, long time for someone to love me. If you think we are a good match and you have the time for me please contact A.S.D.R.

Windie’s adoption fee is $250

Baxter – Adopted

Baxter

Hi, my name is Baxter. I am 7 years old and currently 20 lbs but I’m trying to lose some weight. My foster mom thinks I’m the best! But I am looking for my forever home. I love being with my foster folks. I like to follow them everywhere, so I’m not missing anything. Once in a while the cat walks by to distract me, but he’s not afraid of me, so I don’t bother chasing him, I just try and scare him. Someone told me I was part chihuahua and part corgi. I don’t think I’m part chihuahua because all this cold weather and ice does not bother me at all! I LOVE long walks and I’m hoping my new folks will be willing to take me everywhere with them, especially for long walks!! I don’t like being left home all alone. I would rather be in a home with another small dog for company. I don’t like small children, at least that’s what my previous mom says. But my foster mom is not sure. I don’t like the bath, and I hide my face in my foster moms armpit and it makes me feel better. But I smelled fantastic before my bath. I have short legs and it takes me a few tries to jump up on the sofa. But if that’s where you are, that’s where I am too! I love to sleep in the bed with you too. I am not a bed hog like my 6 lb foster brother who hogs the bed. I don’t move all night until the next morning, when you get up. The vet said I’m a healthy boy and they put a new microchip in me. Which is good because I do not do well off leash, I prefer to be leashed when I’m outside. I also know how to sit and shake paw. And if you play with me with my tennis ball, I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER!

Dibley – ADOPTED

dibley2

Dibley is a 4 year old neutered male Chihuahua, weighing about 6 lbs. He is a sweet, gentle little dog, great with other dogs and cats. He is extremely timid with people and has not yet learned to trust humans, so a calm and understanding household is a must for Dibley. Despite his fear, he does not bite when handled. Dibley is still working on his house training-he is not very keen to go outside in the cold.

Lola – Adopted

Lola

Lola is a 8 yr old Chihuahua/Pug mix, she is up to date on vaccinations, spayed and micro chipped. She is just a sweet little girl! Lola gets along with other dogs and cats, however, she likes her space and will snarl at them when they get in her space. She would prefer to either be the only dog or maybe have 1 other quiet dog sibling. She is good with older kids, however she is very nervous with small children and babies, and will hide and shiver, So she will be looking for a home with older kids or none at all.
Lola is a dog that just wants a space of her own to nap and hang out,somewhere she can burrow down under the cover with her person at night. She isn’t a cuddly type, but shows her affection by wagging her tail and dancing around when you get home!

Ollie – ADOPTED

ollie

Ollie is a Pomeranian mix between 2 and 3 years old. He is an energetic and playful little guy. He is house trained and if he wants to go out, he will let you know. Ollie will do a few tricks like sit, paw and lay down. He loves to play with a ball outside, loves to snuggle and give affection.

Ollie has been living in a foster home for some time with a 9 year old child. Ollie and his foster sister play endlessly, and his foster family trusts him with her. Ollie, however, does NOT get along with other animals (so no cats or dogs in his new home, please), and is fearful of strangers in his house.

Once Ollie has bonded with his family, he can be aggressive when strangers enter the home, so a home with few to no visitors is preferred for him, and work training him to accept strangers into his home is strongly advised.

He can be home alone when you work, and has no separation anxiety. He is happy when you leave, and even happier when you return, and LOVES to go for walks!

Caper ADOPTED

Caper

Caper is a 2 yr old Yorkie/Jack Russell mix, 12lbs 13 oz,he was neutered and microchipped on Dec 30, and he has an appoint on Jan 15 for second booster and rabies.

Caper is good with cats and kids and dogs, though can “guard” his person from other dogs when laying on their lap, this is a behaviour that will need to be worked on in his forever home. He’d love a fenced yard, as he loves to get out there and run, but he doesn’t always want to come when called. so he must be on a leash at all times when not in a fenced area.

Caper has separation anxiety and is on Calm-Aid for it at the moment,but we believe with stability he may be able to overcome this. Caper doesn’t walk well on a leash yet! He pulls quite a bit,we are working on that.

He is a young dog, so he can be high energy, however he is quite happy to lay around on the couch! He currently sleeps in his kennel at night without a peep,but also would love to cuddle in bed with his person! He is a total cuddle bug! He just wants to be on your lap all the time!

If you believe that you have what it takes to be Caper’s forever home, please fill out an application!
