App. 5 years old
someone please explain to me why people get so focused and confused on trying to
figure out my breed? Italian Greyhound? Chihuaua? Mixed breed of both of the
previous mentioned? Címon people! Iím a purebred sweet dog! What else
matters? I promise I wonít try and figure out your breed if you adopt me.
had a good life so far but itís another one of those stories where Iím in
rescue due to circumstances beyond the humanís control. Foster mom can share
more information if youíre really interested. Meanwhile, Iím moving forward.
First on the agenda is I will be brought up to date at the vet so when
Iím adopted, everything is current. No worries for you, if you adopt me of
course. We can just start playing and building our life together.
you want to know about my personality? I might be a bit timid at first but it
wonít take any time at all before Iíll be very attached to you. Iíd love
to share walks with you and whenever you wish, Iíd love to be carried.
Thatís not a big deal at my current weight of 8 pounds. Iíd love watching TV
with you if thatís part of your life. Iím not particular as long as I can be
near you. I mean thatís why people adopt dogs isnít it? To have
last request, I like little dogs my size but please no large dogs in my new
to know more? Just talk to my foster mom and sheíll share everything else she
knows about me.
you at a meet and greet date???? I sure hope so.

- ďKODY!!!!! Why did I let you talk me into this very short hair
- "Settle down, Kali. I thought it would great to have a trendy new
hairstyle as we are being considered for a new home. You know, people will think
weíre more hip and it would be cooler during these hot days. It will grow back
just in time for when the weather cools off.Ē
- ďOK, OK if you say so but never again. I like my long flowing white locks.
Itís so much more feminine.Ē
- ďOK you two. Enough of that!!! This conversation is going nowhere so
let me tell the folks what a great pair you are even if you do have a difference
and Kali are being rehomed due to their former family relocating and job changes
that caused these two great dogs to be left home alone all day long. They were
loved enough that their former owners want the best for them and someone to be
around more often during the days.
is a very cuddly dog. He will be constantly around you and wants attention.
Heís good around other dogs and has never shown aggression towards another dog
is also very cuddly when you invite her to join you but she can be equally happy
on her own. Kali is always very alert. She hears things even before
Kody some times. She is very sweet and also has never shown any aggression
to other animals or people. Kali ALWAYS will have a toy in her mouth.
She loves her toys and sometimes she will climb into her toy bin and sleep
on top of them. Now thereís a picture.

provide a good quality food, lots of toys and even more important, love and

- letís see. What did I do with those notes from the class I took on how to
draft your resume to get the ideal job?? I know itís here somewhere. I guess I
shouldnít list ďorganizedĒ as one of my top 10 traits. Ohhhhh - here it
is. OK letís start on the resume:
I donít think legally they can ask that because itís considered
discrimination in the job market. But Iím looking for a great home, not the
typical job. Oops - thereís my age up above right under the photo. Yup - the
ideal age if you donít want to deal with all the puppy training and nonsense
and Iím good for another 100,000 miles at least and with legs as short as
mine, it will take a LONG time go walk 100,000 miles.
applying for: Resident dog
Sweet, loving, good with dogs of all sizes and cats, too. House trained.
Healthy, neutered (ouch), up to date on all vaccines and recent dental
requested: Nice lap to cuddle in, good
food, snuggles, toys, respect and companionship.
I think Iím the best dog for that position in your home:
Itís been confirmed by foster mom that I am honest and all statements
above are true. I will be dedicated and yours forever.

you can look into the eyes of this sweet dog and quickly move on, weíll be
surprised. Even if the eyes donít grab your heart, the glowing report of
Sabrinaís 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. Letís just say her previous owner has aged not
so gracefully and caused some difficulties for Sabrina. If youíre interested
in further details, the foster mother will gladly communicate with you.
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
donít 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 sheíd probably rather go with her humans.
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 theyíve ever had. Lastly, foster mom reported that Sabrina is
going to make someone a ďgreat FUR-ever companion.Ē
is scheduled for her dental work on July 28 and everything else that brings her

accessories. Why not start now by clicking on the link to inquire or ask for an

*Update Sabrina had her dental, and did not lose any teeth, bloodwork came back perfect, everyone is in awe, that she is "suppose" to be 10, as she is perfect.*

Sophia! And she's much like Sophia from "The Golden Girls"...has
her own opinion, is independent yet loves to snuggle under the covers and on
laps. She's a great "announcer" of potential
"invaders" and will be very protective of her new person.
recently had a dental (only two extractions), is up-to-date on vaccines,
microchipped, spayed and her latest blood panel looks great. She just
turned 7 y/o and her birthdate is 5/9/07.
came from an unfortunate situation and was 18+ lbs when she arrived. She's
been on a diet and has discovered French green beans and broccoli adorn her food
and she loves them. She's lost about four pounds and needs to lose another
one to two pounds. So whoever is lucky enough to adopt her must keep up
with the diet 'til she's at a better weight. She's currently on Wellness
CORE Ocean and gets 1/4 C twice a day (plus veggies - no carrots though...too
sweet as she can be and a lover but no cats and no children under 12.

"Lucky Ballpark" and so named for the unusual circumstances of his
entrance into Rescue. When he was about 11 m/o, a lovely man found him
tied to a fence at a ballpark. He took him to a Rescue where he received
his name. He was adopted by an older woman who had him for just over five
years. She recently died and a relative was turning Lucky into a shelter
in OR. Enter our wonderful man who first found him! He again took
Lucky into Rescue again...so he truly is Lucky!
arrived quite overweight for a mini-Dachshund but his new diet and walks are
bringing his weight down. He was 28 lbs when he arrived at my home about
seven weeks ago. He's about 20 lbs now and continues to lose weight and is
becoming much more active and certainly enjoying life more.
age is estimated to be about 6.5 y/o, vaccines are up-to-date and nothing due
'til 4/17, he had a dental a couple of months ago (four extractions), is
microchipped and neutered.
on the quiet side but does engage in announcing the doorbell or someone strange
coming to the door. He enjoys a nice sunny spot in the back garden to soak up
the sun. He likes to snuggle and squishy toys with squeakers are duly
decimated to remove that squeaky "beast" inside. Stuffing has
been everywhere! He gets along well with other dogs but no cats or
children under 12.
sweet mellow guy needs his own home and person/s who will continue with his diet
and walks until he's slim and sleek once again. He's fed 1/4 C Wellness
CORE Ocean twice a day and has discovered French green beans and broccoli are
strange but wonderful on his food.

Gracie and Einstein
Pekingese and Havanese X
Female and Male
8-9 years old
16 and 21 lbs
Einstein and Gracie recently lost their dad, who succumbed to a 15 month health battle. He had rescued them from a shelter 3 years ago, as a bonded pair. Now they are looking for a new forever home. These sweet dogs are obviously very resilient; they are not nervous or skeptical of anyone, they love everyone they meet! They get along extremely well with the resident Peke's, and a shepherd - they are not phased by anything.
Einstein should have been called Romeo - he is such a lover. He nuzzles and snuggles every chance he gets, and will sneak up on your bed to sleep right next to you if you let him. He is a perfect balance of loving and independence. He's a terrific eater, and loves to roll around with some toys once in a while.
Gracie is the funniest little thing - she tends to run everywhere - if she is going from point A to point B, she will get there fast, and then do a little dance before she lies down. She's the boss of the two (just like a good Pekingese!), and loves attention and treats, but definitely likes to claim a comfy dog bed as her own. She eats very well also.
Both dogs have had dental done recently, resulting in some extractions, but they are doing amazing and eating again with no problems. They have seen the veterinarian for very thorough examinations and both of them are in excellent health!
They love to take short walks on leash, (Gracie likes to decide which way to go, though!) and really enjoy the off leash park. (Gracie likes to decide which way to go, though!)
These dogs are an absolute dream to care for, perfectly housebroken. They will fit in to a loving environment very quickly.

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!

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.)
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.
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.
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.
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!
