Dear Abby,

I would like some help and direction in finding the cutest little companion ever that I can give a ďfureverĒ home to.    Can you help?


Response from Abby:

I think I may fit your needs.  I am a 2 year old Yorkie weighing in at a mere 7 lbs. My foster mom says I love love love  to cuddle up on her lap, follow her around the house, and I really like to snuggle under a cover with her at night in bed.  I can also sleep in my bed if I have to.  I have been on a car ride with her and its ok just kind of scary, as long as I have someone to snuggle I relax quite quickly.  I always go out wih her when she wants me to go outside to do my business, but when she hasnít been right there I did use the pee pad she put down for me.  I am pretty young so I still need some direction with this and I think I will learn the routine quickly.  I love putting on my pretty harness and leash and going for a walk,  and like the potty issues I could use more time with this.  Hey maybe we can take a class together so we can learn together. 

I have been really great at meeting new people although sometimes I am a little shy.  I really like my foster mom, but I get really excited when the men in the house come around, I get all bouncy and happy.  I also love some squeaky toys.  There are other furkids in my foster home and they are really nice to me and we get along just great.  There is one in particular that I really really like and want to snuggle with her, but we are just starting to get to know each. 

I can be left home alone and donít misbehave but I am oh so ever happy when the people come home.  I love to jump in their laps and give them loves, kisses and snuggles.  My foster mom is trying to get me to stop kissing because I didnít know some people donít like that.  So Im tryingÖ..

We made a trip to the vet and I got all current on my shots, microchipped and a clean bill of health just some minor itchiness in my ears.  The vet put some medicine in them and said I was good to go.  Maybe, if you are my new parent we can go get them checked and I can meet my new doctor when I need to go.  It was a little scary there, but they said I was a really good girl.  I didnít even make a peep when they gave me the shots and was microchipped. 

SoÖ.I look forward to your response and see if that meets your need?

My name is Sophie, but my foster mom has started calling me Sophia because she thinks that I'm a sophisticated lady.  I can totally tell that she thinks I'm pretty special because she is always hugging and kissing me, and secretly I like it.  I also like sleeping on her bed at night, but she says that she hardly knows I'm there.  I ended up at Furbaby because my mom ran into some difficult times and made the heartbreaking decision to let me go to a loving, permanent home.  I am proud to say that I am pretty adaptable, because I fit right into my foster home where there are two other Pekingese!It's like finding long lost relatives!  I am a quick study - I picked up the routine lickety split. Anyway, even though I was sad because I missed my mom, after a few days I started to get super happy.  I love to play with little stuffed toys and I enjoy a quick morning walk and in the evenings we have been going to the dog park where I stay with the group and have an absolute blast.  Last year I had some dental work done and I am in terrific health.  I'm youthful, and my foster mom says that I am the perfect dog for someone who wants a sweet companion that is really easy to take care of.  I guess that comes with being a sophisticated lady.

I have foster siblings that I like just fine, but we don't really play.  I really have become quickly attached to my foster mom and so she thinks that I'll do best in a home where there is at most one other dog.  That way I'll get lots and lots of love, which is what she says I deserve.

If you look into my eyes can you see the emotional pain Iíve felt in the past several months? My owner died. Now look again, can you see how Iím healing and now hoping for another chance at a great home? My name isnít Sugar for no reason. I am sweet but not sticky clingy. While my foster mom really didnít know a lot about me due to where I came from, she has learned that Iím basically shy and quiet. Again, part of that is because I lost someone dear and I need to get back to living again. Iím quite curious as to how this will all work out. I like personal attention and snuggling and being petted but I donít demand a lot of it. I kind of like my personal space and if invaded, Iíll grumble a bit but itís harmless. I think we all have our grumbling moments, donít you? And for those of you who donít like dogs sharing your bed, you just found the right girl for your bedroom. I prefer my dog bedÖÖon the floorÖÖin your room. I guess you could call me an aloof lover. Hmmm, now thereís a new phrase for a girlfriend. I do want to be your friendÖ.who is a girl and I want to be so special in your life. Iíll come when you call me and foster mom will confirm I have no bad habits. I eat well and Iím housetrained. YAY!!!! What more is there? Oh yes, Iím good looking and with someone who will love me again and keep me groomed, I will be the most stunning girl in your neighborhood.

Male/neutered/shots current
2 years old

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. *
