Hello to little black dog lovers everywhere!

I am a little black dog and that’s why my name is Ebony.  These are my “before” and "after" pictures

My human passed away on Monday.  On Tuesday I went to Michele’s in Kirkland and then got right in to VCA Redwood to have my full medical diagnostics run to see what kind of health I was in.  I am so lucky because my blood work, exams, X rays and such showed nothing other than that I am in great health.  I did need a dental but that was quickly taken care of.  Other than a groom, there is nothing hanging fire for me and I am ready to be adopted.

I am a bouncy little thing, always wagging my tail, and happy to join in with anyone.  I’m not afraid of cats or rabbits or big dogs and love to join any party.  I’m well adjusted and have adjusted to losing my human.  She had been ill and that’s why my bangs are a bit long.  My human loved me so much and took better care of me than she did of herself.  Neighbors saw us together often and when my human went to the hospital, one of them worked diligently to track me down and make sure I could find a great home.

Now that my medical is taken care of, I get to live with Cindy and her three dogs, while we look for a new home for me. 

Please don’t be afraid of my age.  I could live another 5 years.  But you would not think I wasn’t a puppy when you meet me.  Life is one glorious tableau and I don’t want to miss one minute of it.  I am looking for someone who feels this way, too. 

One thing is for sure, I will LOVE LOVE and LOVE you.

With love and gratitude,

*LuLu is temporarily taken off of adoption, she is the sweetest dog ever to her person, but she is absolutely horrible meeting strangers
so foster has signed her up for training, to see if she can work through some of these issues.  Meeting a potential adopter is difficult as they cannot see her true self*


Hi!  My name is Lulu and I am looking for my new forever home and family! 


Here are some things that you should know about me:  I am crate trained for a safe place but I always sleep in the bed with my foster family--that’s one of my favorite things to do!  I am major snuggle bug and my foster mom says that I’m an “in your pocket” kind of a girl.  That means that I love to be by your side—after all, I am your best friend and you are mine!  Stuck on you…that’s me!  I also like some alone time during my days, so you may sometimes find me napping in the soft blankets on the master bed.  It’s just so comfy there!  I currently live with 6 other dog siblings and I do well with all dogs, large and small.  I even get along with Cats, though I sometimes find them fun to chase!  Even though I’m half Shih Tzu, I identify with my Cavalier side of the family the most…I’m just so, so sweet and lovely!  I’m a sensitive girl and would prefer a quieter home with not a lot of yelling or commotion.  I spent my last 6 years living on 6 acres and know how to go in and out of a doggie door because, well…because I’m super smart!  I’m a happy girl who is athletic and fun and I would really love someone who would love to throw a ball for me! 

Some super important things to know about me:

  1. I am very slow to warm up to new people

  2. I may growl if I am introduced to new people too quickly

  3. I will need additional training to build my confidence in new situations with new people.

  4. I will likely do best in a quiet home with a big yard.  Dog parks, doggie day care and walks through the neighborhood are all things that are too scary for me right now-- I grew up on 6 acres and love that environment!

If you think that you might be interested in meeting me, please fill out one of our applications and my foster Mom will get back to you ASAP!  I am very much looking forward to meeting you!

Doggie thoughts:

 “Why won’t they adopt me? Is it because I’m a senior?

I wouldn’t overlook them just because they’re a senior.

Are they afraid of me dying too soon? Well, I might be afraid they’d die too soon if I was a young puppy and then what would happen to me?

Which is worse – to say good-bye to an aged beloved pet or to die yourself and leave your pet behind with an unknown future?”

People thoughts:

For me, a human, I’d rather know that my pet is waiting for me on the other side versus me dying first and leaving my beloved pet’s future to chance. Sometimes those we ask to take over our pet’s care after we’re gone, don’t always do so.  After all, we’d be gone, we’d never know

"The Animals Savior"
Copyright Jim Willis 1999

I looked at the caged animals in the
shelter...the cast offs of human society.

I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread,
sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry
"God," I said "this is terrible! Why don't you
do something?"
God was silent for a moment and than
He spoke softly
"I have done something." He replied
"I created You"
