Papillion mix
Female/spayed/shots current
3 years old
11 lbs

Penny is a sprightly little sweetheart who loves her people.  We were told she is a Papillon Chihuahua mix but we aren’t sure.  Many people forget that there are actually two types of Papillons; one with the big butterfly ears and one with ears down so when they look at Penny her look doesn’t “read” Papillon to them.  If you look closely at her face, particularly the right side, you will notice the rich colors of the Cavalier.

She is a great girl.  In a very short time she learned the routine of how to go in and out for pottying with the other dogs.  She crates up at night and sleeps quietly until morning.  She prefers a savory soft food over kibble. 

Penny is happy to do anything with you.  She loves walks, car rides, trips - anywhere fun or monotonous – to her they are all great fun.

She is a young dog who came to us with Dino.  Penny’s owner needs time to focus on her health right now and, unfortunately, she cannot have dogs with her at this time.  Obviously everyone was devastated about this but as long as Penny (and Dino) were safe and in a loving environment while looking for their forever home, everyone was at peace. 

Penny fit right in to the household and the most negative two things about her are that she won’t sit still for a perfect photo and she barks at Old English sheepdogs through gates.  A lot of us are camera shy and there IS something a bit “shady” about a large dog hiding behind long bangs. 

Penny has had a recent physical exam and she’s in great shape.  She got her teeth polished up a bit just for the holidays.

Penny would be very happy to be adopted with Dino but we really think that she will be just fine on her own if she is able to spend most of her time with her owner and family.

Chihuahua/terrier mix
Male/neutered/shots current
3 years old
13 lbs

Dino is a dynamic little fellow who loves to twirl around, go for walks, sit in your lap, and be your loving companion.  He’s great in the car, we have noticed excellent house potty behavior with him, and he’s just a real sweetheart.

He can be very vocal if he wants your attention.

Recently, he shared space with a large youthful Tibetan Terrier and he seemed to think that life was a contest with that dog, so there were some loud playful moments.  The Tibbie has left and Dino is perfectly happy with all of the other dogs.

We were told that he could be a little pushy with his food dish so we feed him separately so that all of the dogs get a good meal and he doesn’t get too much of one. 

Dino has recently had a physical exam and pronounced to be in great health.  He, came in with Penny, and if you have read up on her you know that Dino’s owner is ill and needs time to focus on getting better so he came to stay with us while we look for his new home.

He is going to be happiest in a home where someone is home a lot.  We aren’t sure how he would be as an only dog.  He does love Penny but he is pretty independent and it’s hard for his  foster home to tell because, of course, there are multiple dogs. 

So, if you are looking for just one little dog to share your home OR have been looking for a great pair of dogs who get along well with one another, Dino could be the perfect dog for you.  He is a young dog so a sedentary lifestyle is not suitable for him.  He is not hyper or anxious by any means but he’s barely out of puppy hood so could do with a couple of walks each day.

Male/neutered/shots current

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 I’m looking for a wonderful new life with a very special person or two and you’ll take time to see if you’re interested in me? 

Let’s see how many questions you can answer “yes” to and we’ll 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? I’d do the same for you, not that you’d want to sniff around. *wink*

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

Do you have a cat in residence? Hmmmmm - I’ve 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 don’t 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 you’d hear that from a dog! I like sleeping on the bed with my human. While I’ve gotten along with the foster dogs that come and go in this foster house, I’m 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. It’s a thing in my past but at the same time most dog trainers teach humans that there’s a better way to reach for a dog to pet them than going straight for the head so I think I’m normal. Yup, I’m 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! I’m 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. *
