Sassy and Daisy
Females/spayed/shots current
7 and 10 years old
6 and 10 lbs

Daisy and her daughter Sassy don’t really know their names.  We don’t know if they have ever had names.  Pretty much anything outside of a dark and filthy cage is foreign and scary to them.  They were relinquished when their owner was moved from her home. 


They were afraid of floors, stairs, being picked up, being on a leash.  They were in need of crucial medical care.


They started out living in their foster mom’s bathroom as this seemed a good transitional space for them.  They are now being slowly introduced to the rest of the house; stairs, flooring, potty training, and attention and affection.


Daisy, the mom, is possibly 10 years old.  We aren’t sure.  She is quiet.  When she gets to know you she  is playful and affectionate.  She loves to sit on your lap and give kisses.  She is adorable and sweet.


She is really getting good at going potty outside but will also use pee pads. 


Sassy, the daughter is about 7 years of age.  She is shy at first but has started being comfortable with people.  She likes to play but doesn’t understand being picked up.  She wants to warm up to you so badly and is really close to doing so but is still leery.  However, if you tell her to “sit”, she will, and then she lets you pick her up.

She loves to bark and chat with everyone but someone cut her vocal cords so she can’t make much of a sound.


Sassy has learned to go up the stairs but is still afraid of the floor.  She is pee pad trained and working on going outside to do her business.  She is learning from her mama.


Neither know what to do with wholesome and clean food and they are just learning to eat their meals.


They are both coming along with their leash training and walking.  Sassy “barks” at everyone and does not like bigger dogs.  She bosses the Great Dane in her foster home and he is scared of this little tiny fluff of fur.  She doesn’t make much sound so we have to smile at her “presence” and how it affects this very large dog.


Daisy and Sassy are a very bonded pair and cannot be broken up.  Each relies upon the other.


They are being fostered in Seattle for application email Furbaby Rescue.




(Adopted April 21/14)
Terrier/poodle/dachshund mix
Female/spayed/shots current
3 years old
13 lbs


My name is Cindy, I came to my foster home due to an illness in my family.  I am told I am a terrier/poodle/dachshund mix, but I know I’m cute as a button and sweet as can be.   I am 3 years old and up to date on my shots and a clean bill of health.   I really want a forever home that will have time to do some of my favorite things.  I love to go for walks, I really love playing with toys, and I don’t mind if I even have a playmate.  At first I am very shy, but in time I learn to trust you and I love belly rubs and scratched under the chin.  I don’t  really get on furniture unless maybe I’m invited but I love to lay on the floor by my foster mom’s feet and she will rub and pet me.  Sometimes I put my little paws on the chair, mostly I want to get some love and attention or sometimes  I am saying I want to go outside to do my business.  I have never done any of that in my foster mom’s house, I am pretty well trained to go outside.   I will sleep in a kennel, but I really love the new bed my foster mom made me and maybe it will get to go with me in my new home. (I hope hope) I am the sweetest lil girl and I do come to my name and really don’t bark a lot, but only to greet people at first coming into the house, that is so exciting.  I would really love to meet you and see if you can be my forever home.

Miniature Schnauzer
Female/spayed/shots current
4 years old
14 lbs

I'm Susie!!!  I'm four years old, spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, cute as a bug's ear, and need my own person to love.  I'm a bit small for a Miniature Schnauzer and tip the scales at about 14 lbs.  

I've not had the best start in life and have been shuffled around a bit so sometimes I'm very shy.  When I don't know what's coming next, I just lie down and wait.  My mom scoops me up and tells me everything is going to be fine and give me a good scratch on my chest.  I was bought to make puppies but saved at the last minute.  I'm too sweet for words my foster mom says and I'm an excellent snuggler!  I frequently have what my mom calls "morning beard"...it goes every which way but we don't much care.  

We're still working on the house-training but I'm getting better.  I must go outside as soon as I've eaten so I can take care of "business" as mom calls it.  

So if you've got room in your heart and home for a great snuggler, I'll be yours forever!

Boggie and Teddie
Boggie (Cavachon) Teddie (Shihchon)
Males/neutered/shots current
3 years old
18 and 14 lbs

Darn….this sounds really bad, like our father was a Don Juan. Well, I guess perhaps he was because we share the same father but we each had different mothers and yet we're the same age. Boy, Daddy must have gotten around quickly!  Does it really matter? Not really. We love each other and we're good dogs with so many good traits so let's move on. 

We were surrendered to Furbaby Rescue through no fault of our own. "Life changes" was the comment of our previous owner. I guess that can cover a broad territory from loss of job, too old to care for us, divorce, new babies in the house, who knows? The foster moms have heard it all before so again what matters is we're good dogs and again, let's move on.   

We definitely are bonded and do everything together including sleeping, eating and playing. Boggie is the large and goofy one. I think he should have applied for residency at Disneyland for us. We love being outdoors and running and playing so a fenced yard would be awesome! Foster mom gave us an "A" as far as being housebroken but as always, you'll have to show us what to expect once in our new home and follow through until we're sure we understand what you want us to do. Oh and before we move on again - we aren't cut out for apartments. We must be in a single family dwelling hopefully with that nice fenced yard. That's because Boggie is just too goofy and lively for apartment living. One more, "let's move on……."

Foster mom has more information and she'll answer any questions you have. We have one question for you - When can we do our last "Let's move on and move in with you?

(Adopted April/14)
Buckles and Tonka
Papillion/Boston Terriers
Males/neutered/shots current
1 & 3 years old
12 & 14 lbs

Are you looking for small dogs with big dog personalities?  Have you been wishing for a dog who actually plays fetch and loves it?    With these longer days are you wishing for a pair of companions to get you out walking and having fun doing it?

Tonka and Buckles could be just the dogs for you.  You have to meet them to see how sweet and fun they are, though.  You can throw anything and they will give chase.  They do what you tell them to do.  They are house trained (yay!) 

They are crate trained in their foster home in order to manage the numbers of dogs, and this could be continued or stopped depending on the circumstances of the home and your lifestyle.

We have not seen an issue with them with cats or rabbits and they get along with other dogs very well. 

They are just loving dogs with a lot of personality.

If you are wondering how we came to have them with us in rescue; their owner is very ill.  She is a young woman but can no longer care for them or herself.  Tonka and Buckles have been living with their “grandmama” but she now is needed to provide care for her daughter while also working outside the home, and she can’t give these young dogs the kind of life they should be living. 

But you sure could!  These are wonderful little dogs and they will make you smile every single day.

Female/spayed/shots current
2 years old
5 lbs

We have been blessed to have had Katie with us for awhile now and can report that she is a complete  character; funny, active, loyal, brave, and cuddly.   

What is the most amazing discovery is how much fun she is and how brave she can be.  Of all of the bedrooms in her foster home she could have chosen, she did not have to choose the one with the two dueling sheepdogs, and yet that is her choice.  She stands up to them, does what they do, runs with them, and goes on walks with them. 

She is so tiny but has a huge presence and a loving heart.  She used to sleep on a sheepdog’s bed but now sleeps in a human bed and likes to be under the covers.  One morning she was packed up in a knitting bag she had been sleeping in and went to a knitting group, unbeknownst to her foster mom.  She quite enjoyed that.

Katie follows direction pretty well for a dog we wouldn’t expect to be so responsive.  She likes to let everyone know when there are changes in the household and lets us know if someone is at the door.  She is very social and loves greeting all visitors. 

She is dainty, manages to keep clean with all of this mud of late, and it is SO much fun to tuck her in a bag and take her along places.

Miniature Schnauzer
Female/spayed/shots current
5 years old
11 lbs

Schnauzer Rescue #4 came by her name quite easily.  Through everything she endured it seems obvious that she held out “hope” that a better and different life was out there waiting for her.

Hope has been so grateful to everyone who has helped her regain her health and helped integrate her into a home where she can experience love and security.

She’s not a snuggly dog at this point.  She was the most “shell shocked” of the Schnauzers.  Jay and Rochelle who are not Schnauzer people, per se, were more than welcoming when Hope was discharged from the hospital. They have quickly figured out that if Hope is typical of most Schnauzers that they must be a wonderful breed indeed. She is fun to watch as she learns something new every day.  One day she learned how to jump up and down off of furniture.  Another day she learned what fun a giant Irish Wolfhound can be to follow around. 

Hope is getting along with the other dogs and cats and enjoying their company.  She is catching on to potty training very easily.  She will tolerate a crate but if she really wants OUT she will bark.  She likes to ride in the car.  She is pretty mellow and enjoys a cozy nap.  Hope has been through a lot of changes of late and is luxuriating in all of the things she was denied for so long out of sheer greed and disregard for humane treatment of this little angel.  She is content just to “be” and watch the world go by.  She is curious and as she is learning trust she is becoming quite interested in what is going on around her.

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!

Female/spayed/shots current
8 years old

I have just received my degree from the School of Hard Knocks so you may now call me Dr. Twinkie. Nope, not that kind of doctor. I am an educated kind of doctor is what I am. Let me tell you about my "education" from the SHK University. (In case I forget to mention it, I have an incredible imagination along with my other great traits.) 


When I arrived into rescue it was quickly learned that I was easy to care for, that I needed to be monitored so I didn't have too many treats and get too "round" which is a nice way of saying "fat". *sigh* Oh, the problems we women have in our middle years and battling weight gain. I learned that car rides and walks were pretty neat things to do so that's been great exercise. I also have nice ways of letting you know that I need to go out and do my business. Those things just come with the beginning levels of education. 


Then.......things started happening and I progressed to my doctorate degree in the doggy world. I started having blood in my urine and my foster mom rushed me off to the vet, bless her heart. I had X-rays, ultra sounds and the vets found a stone but they didn't stop there because my liver enzymes were so high that they checked for Cushing's but it was negative. I told them I didn't sign up for that Cushing's class but they wanted to be sure. So on with my education I went by spending three days in the hospital taking fluids and more tests. My enzymes came down which is equal to getting an "A" on the report card. I had the surgery which was like a conquering a gym class and I graduated with flying colors!! YAY!!!! I'm like a new dog. Not only that, people were awesome and sent in contributions for my vet bill which was close to $1,500. Yup, those educational processes aren't cheap but the doggy angels made it possible and now I can have a new home and be adopted in splendid condition. 

I probably should mention that I probably would do best being an only doctor....I mean dog in the house. I think I have reached the stage in life and with my "Dogtorate Degree" from the School of Hard Knocks, I deserve to be a special little rascal. 

If you want the rest of my resume, please contact foster mom who can answer any other questions you may have. In the meantime, THANK YOU TO ALL THE ANGELS who donated to getting me educated and well. THANK YOU for believing that I was worth it!

 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. *

Please bookmark our pages and stop by often.
There will be more furbabies needing forever homes.
