ďToday was such a lovely day and my foster mom spent the day outside with all of us but especially with ME and I got some new pictures taken of me.  We got some ďactionĒ shots because thatís what you do with a beautiful sunny day in January.  It wasnít even cold outside.  Gosh we had fun.

I would have had more fun, though, if I were with you.  I am looking for you to share your home with me but itís pretty hard for me to find you when Iím tucked away in Kirkland WA and you donít have an idea about how to find me.

Thatís what these postings are for so Iíd  like to tell you about myself:  I bark at large dogs.  Itís my secret as to why I do it.  I canít hurt them but Ií m just so jealous that they get to be so tall and do everything on a big scale.  If I met a big dog and we became friends, I might be okay but I also might bark at them and that would be annoying.

Iím okay with cats but sometimes certain cats really aggravate me so I might do better in a home without cats at all.  Iím living with cats but we stay away from one another.

I have become crate trained.  Who knew I could do it?  Now I think I could live in a home where someone is gone part of the day.  I could hang out in my crate while you are gone and then when you get home, out I can come and play with you!

Iím a young and healthy dog.  I have a lot of energy and a little twinkle in my eye.  You could take me most places with you but Iím fine staying home .  We can do what YOU like to do.

Please come and find me.  Iím in Kirkland and my travel bag is packed and standing by.

No tricky, cutesy write-ups for me. I just want the facts out there. I need a special home with no young children. I need to be loved and cuddled. I donít need you to gloat about how handsome I am even though I am VERY good looking. I can see it nowÖ..Iím the only dog, I can go with you everywhere in your oversized purse or on a leash. Youíll love me so much that you wonít want to leave me and I wonít want to leave you. Yup, I just want to be spoiled and Iíve actually earned it but I wonít ever take you for granted. Promise!

In short, my foster mom reports that I am a super cuddle bug (nice for those chilly days). If you have a fireplace, you may find me laying in front of it. Feel free to join me. If I could be on your bed at night with a blanket that would be awesome and I take up so little space youíd never know I was there. Most of the time I am very calm and laid back but if you give me a toy, Iíll come alive. Oh, and I love carrots and treats. How long has it been since youíve met a dog that likes carrots? I will walk on leash with you but I if thereís something unusual or spooky, please reassure me that youíll protect me. Hey, how about if you and I found a doggie obedience class to attend together??? That would help build my confidence level and let you know how to remain the in-charge human. Hmmmm - I like that idea. What do you think? I bet I could excel and weíd be at the top of the class.   

Thereís other information from my former owner so if youíre interested, just use the link to ask. Iíll be loyal to you. Count on that.

ďWow, was it ever a gorgeous January day today.  We were all outside playing, running, breathing in the fresh air, getting in some good exercise before the rain inevitably returns.

I have been in my foster home for awhile now but I donít think anyone has spotted me because not a single person has asked to meet me.  I donít even understand that so I told my foster mom today that she had better make sure she had a good picture of me and told the world about me.

I have been in foster care for two months now and Iím settling in very nicely.  I have been crate trained and Iím as proud as punch to be able to say that.  I eat in my crate and I go night night in my crate and Iím quiet during both activities. 

Iím looking for a home where someone wants a young dog and wants to take me on walks and on car rides and to be a friend.

I go a little bit nuts when Iím around cats so we would all be happier if I werenít with cats.  I am living with a Papillon, a Shih Tzu, some Westies, and Old English Sheepdogs.  There are cats but the cats are in a different part of the house and our paths do not cross.  I kind of like the dogs but I really donít think I need to be in a home with another dog.  I think I could get used to being with a person. 

Now that Iím crate trained I also think I could live in a home where my someone works because I can ďhold itĒ.

Iím in really good health and have the blood work to prove it.  I am not picky about my food.  My foster mom is helping me learn about potty pads, too so in case no one is around and I need to ďgoĒ I can go somewhere easy to clean. 

I kind of think Iím a dream dog.  Iím small enough to travel easily but not so very wee that I can get lost or stepped on.  I am a really happy little fellow just looking for a home of my own.

My first mom rescued me and I loved her but she became ill and I couldnít stay with her any longer.  So, itís not my fault that I lost my home.  She loves me very much and I know she misses me.  But we both want me to move onward and find my forever home.

What do you think of my new photos?  My foster mom says itís hard to get a good picture of a dark dog with a dark face and dark eyes.  I donít see what the big deal is.  Iím super cute, just point, click, and there is a picture of me for you to see!  You can see more of me if you like.  I am living in Kirkland.

Love, DinoĒ

Dear darling Darby had a rough start in life but his fortune became much brighter once he made his way into rescue!  He and several other dogs had been living out in a filthy shed and the man in charge of their care was negligent and abusive to them in so many ways.  Along with being dangerously under weight, it was found his blood work was not spot on before we performed his neuter.  Upon these findings we did all of the diagnostics/tests necessary and treated him for an infection until his values returned to normal.  Darby has gained the weight were he should be and is now healthy are ready to go out into his new home.  He is a very shy guy and would benefit from having another dog of similar size in his new life to help him continue to build self confidence.  Taking him to class for socializing and exposure may also be helpful to help him in his new life.  He does prefer his foster mom and bonded very quickly to her and he will need a little more time and patience to help him learn to trust men again.  That will come with positive experiences we would hope.  It was not his fault what happened to him.

 Everyone that has met Darby comments on how super sweet he is considering his past background.  He's just still a bit unsure of himself.  Currently he is learning to walk on a leash so a fenced yard would be best for him at this time.  His beautiful spirit becomes quite evident as he zooms around the yard at warp speed and his old life for the moment is forgotten. This is his new world!!!  He is truly enjoying his new freedom and fortunate jail break from that horrible prison he was living in.  We are so proud of the progress he has made during his stay in foster care.

Darby is a love and just needs to learn to trust again and learn about the world around him.  He gets along great with dogs similar in size as well.  Once he bonds with his new owner he will be a snuggle bug for life!  Need a lap ornament?  This just might be your little man if you are willing to have a little patience with him while he learns the world is a much better place than where he was!

Hellooooooo out there!!!! Is anyone reading the write ups?  Yes??? Oh good, so I can share that Iím looking for a wonderful new life with a very special person or two and youíll take time to see if youíre interested in me? 

Letís see how many questions you can answer ďyesĒ to and weíll go from there? 

Do you understand how it is to love food so much that you have to really exercise will power to maintain good health? Can you help me do that? 

Do you happen to go for walks and would you be willing to take me and let me explore and sniff around? Iíd do the same for you, not that youíd want to sniff around. *wink*

Would you like to see me ďdanceĒ for cookies? Yes? Oh, I forgot, food control. Well, we can handle that, right?

Do you have a cat in residence? Hmmmmm - Iíve tried to play with cats but most of them just run and then I can eat their food. How is it I keep returning to the subject of food? *burp*

Would you like me to bark just enough to alert you to prowlers or strangers and then I will be quiet? Done deal!

Do you happen to have an RV so we could go south for the winter or at least do some traveling together? I can already see myself looking out the windows as we travel along.  But if you donít have an RV, car rides would be just fine. 

So much for the questions. Now the facts, plain and simple. I like belly rubs, raw bones and raw vegetables. Bet you never thought youíd hear that from a dog! I like sleeping on the bed with my human. While Iíve gotten along with the foster dogs that come and go in this foster house, Iím really saying my doggy prayers that I might be able to be an only dog for the rest of my life. Probably my only negative is I get nervous when people reach for my head. Itís a thing in my past but at the same time most dog trainers teach humans that thereís a better way to reach for a dog to pet them than going straight for the head so I think Iím normal. Yup, Iím more normal than most dogs. One last thing, My foster mom has worked hard to find the perfect diet for me to protect me from bladder stones. That is so awesome of her because I feel GREAT! Iím good to go for another decade. Care to join me?

If you are in search of a small dog with lots of spunk and energy, this is your girl!  Charlotte is just delightful and full of energy and will charm her way right into your heart.  She loves to play with dogs who are her size (she is intimidated by large dogs).  She plays, plays and plays!!  Her personality and coat are all Poodle and she will need a groom every 5-6 weeks.  And since she does have some separation anxiety issues (she hates to be alone, but is fine with another small dog near by), she will only be placed into a new home that has another dog of similar size for her to bond with.  She can be very vocal at times so she would not do well in an condo/apt situation.  A fenced yard is also a must for this busy little girl.  Her most favorite time of day is recess when she gets to run and play freely in the yard!  Yippee!  That is SO much FUN!

Charlotte loves to sit on her human's lap and will accept belly rubs 24/7 if you should like to provide them!  She loves her foster family and being with her humans so any chore you need help with she will be right there to assist in any way she can.  Snuggles very important to her and she most definitely makes an excellent warm fuzzy lap ornament!  She is seeking a new family because she did not get along with young visiting grandchildren in her previous home and yes there was a nip.  Oops!  Therefore, she will only be placed in home with no young children under the age of 12.

Charlotte LIVES to be with her humans!  Lives, lives, lives for it!!

Her requirements are:

Adult Home Only

A securely fenced yard

Another small dog of similar size already in her new home

Lots and lots of belly rubs and snuggling!

 Here in this House....
I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks of the other dogs 'out
I can sleep soundly, assured that when I wake my world will not have changed.

I will never know hunger, or the fear of not knowing if I'll eat.

I will not shiver in the cold, or grow weary from the heat.

I will feel the sun's heat, and the rain's coolness,

and be allowed to smell all that can reach my nose.

My fur will shine, and never be dirty or matted.

Here in this house...

There will be an effort to communicate with me on my level.

I will be talked to and, even if I don't understand,

I can enjoy the warmth of the words.

I will be given a name so that I may know who I am among many.

My name will be used in joy, and I will love the sound of it!

Here in this house...

I will never be a substitute for anything I am not.

I will never be used to improve peoples' images of themselves.

I will be loved because I am who I am, not someone's idea of who I should

I will never suffer for someone's anger, impatience, or stupidity.

I will be taught all the things I need to know to be loved by all.

If I do not learn my lessons well, they will look to my teacher for blame.

Here in this house...

I can trust arms that hold, hands that touch...

knowing that, no matter what they do, they do it for the good of me;

If I am ill, I will be doctored.

If scared, I will be calmed.

If sad, I will be cheered.

No matter what I look like, I will be considered beautiful and thought to be
of value.

I will never be cast out because I am too old, too ill, too unruly, or not
cute enough.

My life is a responsibility, and not an afterthought.

I will learn that humans can almost, sometimes, be as kind and as fair as

Here in this house...

I will belong.*

* I will be home. *

There will be more furbabies needing forever homes.
