Female Lab Mix
14 years of age
Lucy needs someone with a special place in their hearts for the senior dogs which get abandoned and discarded when they become too old or ill to care for.
We took her in and got her the medical care she needed and she is doing so well. As seen in the video clip of her in the park early in the morning; she keeps up just fine with the younger dogs in her foster home.
We did not know there WAS anything amiss with Lucy other than her age until she was under anesthesia for her dental. An ulcer in the middle of her tongue was seen and removed. It has been determined to be a malignant melanoma. Since we don’t see that it has spread to the submandibular lymph node (which is where we would expect it to go) we can easily expect her to have many months of happy times left. With these situations we can never know if there are a few months or even two years.
At any case with her age approaching 16 (rather a high end of range) the cancer may keep pace with time. She has been treated, diagnosed, and there will not be expensive veterinary bills associated with her care. She certainly will not need her teeth cleaned again.
Please consider the joy you and Lucy can share together. She is a terrific dog. Her foster family will happily keep her as they adore her and she fits right in with everyone but should it be the case that Lucy lives another year or so, we would all like her to have her own home.

Toby and Tico
Pomeranian and Chihuahua
Toby 10 years old / 8 lbs
Tico 2 years old /5 lbs
Tico and Toby are a super fun and affectionate pair of little dogs who lost their home when the second of their owners passed.
They lived in a cage for quite awhile as there was no place for them and no one involved wanted them at the shelter. They seem to have endured that time of their lives and come out of it just fine. They are both well balanced, friendly, and so full of joy.
Foster Dad, in particular, cannot get over how much fun they are to have around.
We have almost no history on these dogs including vet history. Rest assured they come with a full complement of baseline diagnostics and of course had a good dental scrub with X rays. They get along with all of the dogs in their foster home, ignore the cats and rabbits, and don’t seem alarmed at any humans whose paths are crossed.
Tico, the little Chi, is extremely submissive but not in a bad or fearful way. When you call him, he stills, lies on the ground, and when you go up to him and talk to him then he bounces out of this position. Toby is full of energy and brimming with self-confidence.
They are a totally bonded pair and most likely survived their unknown ordeal in part because of the confidence and support of the other.
These are little dogs and though they love to walk and go for car rides they aren’t suited for hikes or people who enjoy a quick five mile walk every day. If you get them a “Dogger” though then they would probably love that.
They both just got neutered and are working on potty training. They lived in a small space for a time where they slept, ate, and took care of digestive and urinary business. Their hormones should begin to subside in a couple of months and that will help them with behavioral peeing. They just got neutered and already are showing improvement.
We are looking for a home with a securely fenced yard, someone to monitor them and help them work on their potty habits, and a home in which they will be loved and treasured.
They can be crated at night in any room of the house and will be quiet throughout the night. They are independent enough that you can leave them for an evening out and they will be just fine.
Toby and Tico are wonderful little dogs.

Meet adorable Pearl, she is 10 going on 2. She is feisty, loving, smart, animated, and a true lap baby. She wants to be wherever you are, and will be your constant companion, she is so portable, she is easy to take with you on all your adventures.
She would love a home, where her Mom or Dad are around, or able to take her with them. She does just fine with other dogs, but as true to her "terrier" nature, she may be only 6 tiny pounds, but she thinks she is 60, and will have a discussion with any dog who thinks differently. Anyone who knows this breed, understands exactly what I mean.
She is a devoted and very
loving companion, and certainly will let you know if an intruder is coming
in:-) Do not let her age deter you, she acts like a lil fireball.
She has been to the vet, and she is in wonderful health, her shots were updated, she is microchipped, bloodwork has been done, she does need a dental, and that will be done on Wednesday, Jan.25, and then ready for her new hopeful home.

Cooper (14 lbs) & Max (6 lbs)
7 years old
Microchipped/Current on vaccinations
am pleased to present Max and Cooper—two darling, bonded Maltese
“brothers”! Although Max and Cooper are not blood brothers, they were
purchased during the same year and both have birthdays in 2009! They are
the best of buddies and can’t wait to find their forever home--together!
Cooper is the bigger boy and he is very curious and outgoing. He loves to
explore the yard and play with both his brother and the other resident dogs!
Max, the smaller boy, is a little more shy and reserved than his brother and he
loves to snuggle up with his person on the couch or in the bed...he’s such a
little love! Both dogs are loves, but their personalities are quite
different which makes this little duo endlessly entertaining!
and Max would do best in a home with no other dominant dogs and, please, no
cats! The resident cat is very dog savvy, but not all cats are, and Max
and Cooper get very excited whenever they see her!
dogs are great for the groomer when they go in for their beauty treatments and
they both had dental work done in 2016...they are healthy boys and have gotten
excellent healthcare thus far!
and Cooper could hardly be more adorable and they surely can’t wait to meet
Cooper and Max are fostered in

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.
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.
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!

out there!!!! Is anyone reading the write ups? Yes??? Oh good, so I can
share that I’m looking for a wonderful new life with a very special person or
two and you’ll take time to see if you’re interested in me?
see how many questions you can answer “yes” to and we’ll go from
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?
you happen to go for walks and would you be willing to take me and let me
explore and sniff around? I’d do the same for you, not that you’d want to
sniff around. *wink*
you like to see me “dance” for cookies? Yes? Oh, I forgot, food
control. Well, we can handle that, right?
you have a cat in residence? Hmmmmm - I’ve 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*
you like me to bark just enough to alert you to prowlers or strangers and then I
will be quiet? Done deal!
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 don’t have an RV, car rides would be just fine.
much for the questions. Now the facts, plain and simple. I like belly rubs, raw
bones and raw vegetables. Bet you never thought you’d hear that from a dog! I
like sleeping on the bed with my human. While I’ve gotten along with the
foster dogs that come and go in this foster house, I’m 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. It’s a thing
in my past but at the same time most dog trainers teach humans that there’s a
better way to reach for a dog to pet them than going straight for the head so I
think I’m normal. Yup, I’m 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! I’m good to go
for another decade. Care to join me?

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.

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 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.

I can trust arms that hold, hands that touch...

If I am ill, I will be doctored.
If scared, I will be calmed.

No matter what I look like, I will be considered beautiful and thought to be

I will learn that humans can almost, sometimes, be as kind and as fair as
