Right now Iím Sad Sadie because my mom died. I miss her so much. Then I got put into a shelter because no one wanted me after Mom passed on and that added fear to my sadness. Now that Iím in Furbaby Rescue Iím feeling thereís some hope. Foster mom took me to the vet and I had a full dental procedure, checkup, and shots. If I was at MacDonaldís theyíd call it the full meal deal but in my case itís just that Iíve had all of my health needs taken care of so I can have a fresh start in the best condition in a new forever home.  

Foster mom reported that I do well with other dogs and Iím ďoozing in sweetness.Ē Thatís because I was loved totally by my first mom. I like to be by my human and follow them everywhere but right now I only have a temporary human to stay near. Iíll feel complete again when I know someone wants to have me forever and ever. I love lap sitting and cuddling. I have excellent ďgo outside to do itĒ habits. I had to be cut right down as I was a mess, so my fur will grow out again, please just gaze into my eyes and recognize a very sweet and devoted soul waiting to be loved again.. Iím saying my doggy prayers for someone who will be around the majority of the time to keep me company. 

If you have other questions, please contact my foster mom or better yet, just fill out the application and come get meÖÖpuleeeeeze.

JJ and Foxy
Lhasa Apso and Pomeranian
JJ (male neutered) 11 years old/17 lbs
Foxy (female/spayed) 7years old/18 lbs

Hi!  Iím Foxy the Pomeranian and this is my very best buddy, JJ the Lhasa Apso!  Thatís us in the picture with our Momma!  Thatís me on the right!  Our Momma is very sick right now and she is in hospice care.  We were very sad about that but she is hurting and has something called Dementia and she doesnít remember who we are anymore so our Mommaís niece made sure that we went into Furbaby Rescue right away!  We are enjoying our time in foster care now, but we didnít know what to do with ourselves at first.  You see, we spent our whole, entire lives with our Momma and now weíre in a new place with a new yard and some other doggies and a CAT!  A cat, I SAY!  We love to chase the cat and bark and bark and chase and chase, so you probably donít want to have a cat unless you, very specifically, want us to do exactly those things!  bol (bark out loud)!  Snort!

JJ is a little bit older than I am and I am very protective of him.  I always need to know where he is and vice versa.  JJ is a little hard of hearing and his eyes are beginning to get just a little bit cloudy, so a new home without stairs would be perfect for us.  I, myself, would love a doggy door to a fenced in back yard because I am a very smart girl and Iím just independent enough to be able to go outside all on my own!  JJ is my bestest friend in the whole wide world, so we need to find a home who will love both of us equally!  We are both very healthy and recently had full heath exams and even dental work! 

We promise to be the best dogs and we really want to meet you!

Wiggles and kisses,

Foxy and JJ

Long haired Chihuahua
Female/spayed/shots current

Zoe is an adorable little dog who is sweet, quiet, well mannered, and affectionate.

Zoe is a victim of neglect and confinement.  We learned of her plight through news of another dog she lived with.  It turns out there were three dogs and we were able to pull all of the dogs and get them the medical care they needed, the open space, fresh air, exercise, and healthy food they deserve.  They are not bonded so a potential adopter with a big heart and concern for the others should not worry that Zoe will be bereft without the other dogs.

Zoe is in foster care in a multi dog home and doing well with the other dogs.  She is happy and her foster family is enjoying watching her blossom and spread out into her big open spaces.

Zoe has had a full physical including blood work, urinalysis, fecal, heartworm test, dental X rays, dental cleaning and polishing, five extractions, ultrasound of internal organs and X rays of her entire body.  She is considered to be healthy.  A full complement of diagnostic results and chart notes accompany Zoe.

Zoe took a road trip this week up to Mt. Vernon to see our groomer Sonya where she got a nice bath, fluffy blow out and her nails trimmed and polished.  She is ready to find her new home.

Zoe is fostered in Kirkland Washington for application email Sandra

Terrier/poodle ?
Male/neutered/shots current
5 years old
17 lbs

Here is Bentley  He's a very unique looking lil fellow with a great personality, ton of charm and smarts!  He's about 5 y/o and we think a Poodle/Terrier mix so will need grooming from time-to-time.  He's up-to-date on vaccines, had a dental (no extractions), neutered and microchipped and house-trained. He's tall at 15.5" at the shoulder and can almost leap small buildings in a single bound.  His latest discoveries are balls and toys.  He'll take a stuffed toy and bait one of the other dogs to play tug-of-war with it.  This boy lives life with great happiness, loves to snuggle under the covers at night and of course back and tummy scratches are relished any time.  He's lived with cats so they're not an issue.

If you're looking for an eager and active dog, Bentley is your guy!

He is fostered in Olympia Washington for application email Sandra

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!

Female/spayed/shots current
10 years old

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?

 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. *
