12 lbs

Sweet Chloe is about 8 y/o, 12 lbs, up-to-date on vaccs, spayed and house-trained.  The white on her face is not indicative of old age, she has a sprinkling of white down her neck, back and even a wee bit on her tail so it's just due to inherited genes.  She's recently had a dental and unfortunately lost 14 teeth.  She does well if you let her kibble soak in warm water for a few minutes and willingly devours any pill packed in cheese so no "pilling" needed.

She absolutely loves to snuggle and under the covers at night if her favorite spot.  She hasn't show a great interest in squeaky toys but does find a fresh raw bone tasty.  She also has discovered the blueberry bushes and helps herself when there are ripe ones within reach.

If you are looking for a sweet lil doxie, Chloe may be the one for you.  Fostered in Olympia, WA email Furbaby Rescue for application.

Here's CC...the goofy Pug!  She's absolutely a character!  Tries to beat me to the couch before I can sit down so she can establish her "spot."  Likes to sleep under the covers in bed when it's cold, but she'd prefer to sleep on top of me.

She's about 5 y/o, UTD on vaccines 'til Mar 2016, spayed, microchipped, house-trained and scheduled for a dental Jul 16 so she'll be ready for her new family after then.  

She loves dogs, cats and people.  She'd probably do best in a family with children over the age of six. Since she's shaped like a torpedo, she needs to be in a harness as she backs right out of a regular collar.  Her former owner was quite elderly and did not teach her any house manners so we're working on those.  

If you're a Pug-lover, she's going to melt your heart!

Hi!  Iím Gus...also known as Gussy Gus Gusserson!  I am just as cute as cute can be and I am full of love, life and fun!  I mean, look at my little button nose!  Holy Moly!

I am the perfect mix of Havanese (sweet and centered) and Pekinese (super smart and just a little bit stubborn).  This means that I will require parents who will make sure that I get my daily exercises in!  It also means that my parents will need to work on my smart skills like commands and games!  It would be great if I could get to do all sorts of fun new things too!  My foster Mum says that the beach is great fun and I would really like to go there to find out!  I very much like other dogs and would love another small-ish fun dog to pal around with and keep me company.   A BFF....yes, a BFF!

I love my foster Mom and 7 other foster siblings and I could care less about the resident fat cat!  I am learning things, so I may bark at some things that I have never seen before like....ummmm...those giant dogs that my foster Mum calls HORSES!  They are huge and scary looking! 

I am very good at telling you if I need or want something like scratches and belly rubs and I am accustomed to sleeping in the bed with my foster Mom and a couple of my new friends!

My foster Mom says that we will search and search for the most perfect parents EVER and I believe her!

Princess is a lovely Chestnut Min Pin (we donít get too many in that color) who lost her home.  She was on an urgent list and our Min Pin Foster Mom Lori got right on moving Princess to safety.  They have been living with one another for many weeks now and Foster mom has fallen in love with this sweet girl.

She doesnít seem to have any negative habits, is a lot of fun, and in good health overall.  We did learn in her vet exam that she needs to have a dental and possibly some extractions but those are being taken care of.  Other than that itís all good.

Princess is a really good dog, a wonderful companion, and a special treat for anyone looking for a Min Pin as their next dog.

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.
