It’s the exciting part of baseball season and we just had to follow that theme. In this case, three strikes does not mean your out. Instead you have three choices. We’ll happily adopt one beautiful Doxie to you or two for double the fun or all three if you’re really excited about that option. I think that would be called “the bases are loaded.” It’s your choice but let’s find them a home before the World Series starts. 

How appropriate to start with introducing Lucky Ballpark and look at those eyes. Is that intent or what? He’s watching every move and you may think he’s watching the game but he has his eyes on you! There’s an incredible story behind Lucky and the foster mom would happily share that with anyone interested. Lucky is on the quiet side but will certainly let you know when the doorbell rings. He’s hoping it’s the delivery of season tickets but even if disappointed, he will let you know that something is happening at your door. Lucky especially hopes you have a sunny spot in your fenced yard or on your secure deck because he loves soaking up that Vitamin D. The only thing better are the squeaky toys. He gets along well with other dogs but we do have to say no cats with Lucky. 

And then there’s Snoopy. How he wishes he didn’t have that name because it alerts the other team that he’s always trying to be a sleuth and figure out their signals for the next ball to be thrown. He’s on the mellow, quiet side and frequently can be found having a snooze under a blanket in a dog bed but don’t let that fool you. He’s simply strategizing about how to find out what that other team is up to and that snoozing under a blanket is merely a cover up. Idea to throw off the other team - change the name from Snoopy to Snoozy!!! Seriously, six year old Snoopy is at an ideal age just like Lucky (described above). That’s well beyond puppy learning curves and just ready to enjoy many years ahead by your side. 

And finally, there’s Sophia - This great little girl is just wondering why on earth the sport of baseball doesn’t have cheerleaders! She’d love to be right down there in front rooting for the good looking hunks at bat. Actually, she’d probably prefer to be team manager or own the team and she could accomplish that with her strong and opinionated, independent personality but her soft side will surface as she snuggles under the covers with you or settles down on your lap.  Sophia has a protective streak in her and will announce new arrivals. She’s like a 4 legged doorbell/surveillance camera. But not to worry. Like most dogs she really wants to know that her human is protecting her. 

All three Doxie’s are current with vet care including dental, vaccinations, etc. They all will require a careful diet so as to not gain weight. Sounds like most humans, doesn’t it? Foster mom will share what she’s found that has worked to trim up these sportsters. There’s more to be learned about each of the team players above. Again, consider adopting one, or two, or three. Your choice. There’s more information on any or all three by contacting Furbaby Rescue.  As is Furbaby’s policy, we do not adopt to homes with children under 12.

Miss Marples
Female/spayed/shots current
8 years old
5 lbs

What can we say...this little one could not be a sweeter dog.  Miss Marple is a very quiet,  loving,  snuggly girl.  She is outgoing,  happy and  eager to please.  She does love to nap! and going on short walks are a big plus.  She loves adventures and would enjoy going with you on outings, but is happy to wait at home for you too.  She is potty trained and gets along well with dogs of all sizes,  and cats too,  She loves men and women alike.

Although she lived in  the same family since just a wee one,  her teeth were not well cared for and alas,  she has no teeth left.  A little tongue to the side,  makes for some adorable character! Oh.. and she is a smiler!  Who does not love that!

This is a perfect little dog,  let us know if you would like to meet her?

(Adopted Sept.5/14)
Female/spayed/shots current
10 years old
24 lbs

If you can look into the eyes of this sweet dog and quickly move on, we’ll be surprised. Even if the eyes don’t grab your heart, the glowing report of Sabrina’s personality and behavior will win you over. Poor Sabrina has had a rough few years and yet she still has so much love to give and has proven that to her foster mom and family. Let’s just say her previous owner has aged not so gracefully and caused some difficulties for Sabrina. If you’re interested in further details, the foster mother will gladly communicate with you. 

BUT THE BEST NEWS IS - the foster mom says that Sabrina is one of THE BEST fosters all the way around that they have ever had. The foster dad agrees and the men don’t speak all that often with an opinion on foster dogs. Sabrina was really shy and fearful at first because of the home she just came from. It took one whole day - ONE WHOLE DAY :-) - before she realized that there are still good men in the world and she warmed up to the entire family. Sabrina loves the other dogs, the people who surround her and she is definitely a snuggler. Sabrina recently went on a family trip and proved that she is amazing in the car. She loves to walk and earns an A+ in walking on a leash. She does do OK left at home alone with the other dogs but her super enthusiasm when the family returns shows that she’d probably rather go with her humans. 

Here comes the big question that everyone always wants to know. Is she housebroken? Foster mom wrote a glowing report that she is absolutely house broken and again, one of the best they’ve ever had. Lastly, foster mom reported that Sabrina is going to make someone a “great FUR-ever companion.” 

Sabrina had dental work, she did not lose any teeth, and her bloodwork came back perfect, everyone is in awe, that she is actually 10 years old.

Bichon Frise
Male/neutered/shots current
10 years old
16 lbs

Skippy is a dear little Bichon who lost his owner due to health issues and was fortunate to have a Good Samaritan who had his back.  She kept him until we could find a foster home for him.

Now that he’s been with his current foster family, he has had some minor health issues taken care and most certainly had his teeth cleaned up.  He’s in great shape now and ready to find his forever home.

Skippy’s foster mom describes what the perfect home would be for him to be most successful:

“I think Skippy would do well in a home with either a single person or an older family who is interested in a sweet, quiet dog; who is not very active.  He definitely loves attention and will take as much attention as his people will give. But he also is able to settle down and lie comfortably on his own while the family does their thing. I know his past care giver had young kids and  said that all the activity seemed a bit too much for him.  I don't believe he is afraid of children as he seems interested in them when we are at the park across the street, but he just wouldn't have the energy to have them play with them that much. I do think he would really enjoy a home with another dog, as well, if possible, especially if he would be left alone for long periods during the day.  His bathroom habits have straightened right out and he has a strong bladder so he has done fine when we leave him at home alone with the other dogs. Such a gentleman! 

Loves to snuggle and be near you whenever you're in the house.  He also gets along great with our two dogs and even tries to play gently with them.  He loves to take (slow) walks on a leash and is gentle when meeting other dogs and people.  He rides very quietly in the car and although he would love to sleep in bed with his people, he has accepted sleeping in his own bed on the floor in our bedroom.


He came to us with residual flea irritation but all of that has cleared up.  He has a slight heart murmur as is common in an older dog but his Senior Blood Panel came back great and the vet has no concerns about him. 

Skippy is an adorable little fellow and we are SO happy we could take him in.

Shih Tzu/Terrier
Female/spayed/shots current
11 months old
11 lbs

Hello Furbaby Fans!  My name is Penny!  I am 11 months old and weigh 11 lbs

I know, I know...I don’t look very much like a Shih Tzu, but my Mommy sure is a Shih Tzu!  My foster Mom says that it doesn’t matter very much who my Daddy is, because I am a cutie-pa-too-tie no matter what! 

I am sweet, loving, pretty much house trained (with frequent potty breaks—I am a puppy after all!) and I am great with other dogs!  I am also great with kids!   

Because I am a puppy, I will benefit greatly from structure and training!  I am very treat motivated, so the training part should be quite easy for me!  Right now, I am learning how to take treats gently and slowly, instead of like Speed Racer!  I am also learning how to sit!  I like to learn new things and I think that learning is a lot of fun!!  Puppy kindergarten will be fun for me and you!

I have been passed around a lot in my 11 months and would really, really love to have a home that I can call my very own – my forever and ever home with humans to love and cherish me --  yup, that is what I am looking for!

Licks and love

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
10 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.
