Pretzel
Miniature Dachshund
Female/spayed/shots current
8 years old
16 lbs

Sweet, sweet Pretzel is a most delightful girl!  She loves to snuggle under the covers like most Dachshunds, loves to have a good chew on a raw bone, is gentle with her kisses, gets along well with other dogs, and she'll be turning 9 y/o in May though you'd never guess it.  She's up-to-date on vaccines, microchipped, full dental, bloodwork, all ready for a new home. She loves her green beans with breakfast.

Her previous owner passed away and she needs another retired home to love and love her.  She'll do best in a somewhat quiet setting and devote herself to kind loving people.

Lolly and Dot
Chihuahua
Females/spayed/shots current
10 and 8 years old
4 lbs

Lolly and Dot came to Furbaby Rescue due to the death of their owner.  Both dogs have been together since Dotís birth and are a bonded pair. They have been cared for very well.  We are looking to adopt them together. Both dogs are in good health,  with recent dental cleaning done while in our care.

They are both extremely social dogs and adore people.  They get along well with other small dogs.  They can live happily with cats, although chasing them, on the rare occasion, is a fun game.

Both came to us a few months ago,  but only recently have we put them up for adoption.  Lolly, the mamma,  came to us with a broken foot.  She has had a cast for a few months but now with everything healed both dogs are ready for their new, forever home.

Both dogs are quiet little snuggle bunnies.  Both are potty trained to a wee pads,  love to take walks, but like many little dogs are barky to big dogs they see on walks, but easily redirected with treats.  Lolly would be happy to snuggle with you all day and get belly rubs for all eternity,  Dot is happy to do the same with a game here or there of fetch, with her favorite toys. They happily sleep in their beds at night,  enjoys chewies and treats for good behavior.

In their foster home, they live with other small dogs and cats.  They are a joy to care for and will be missed greatly. A good home for them would be someone who wants two quiet, relaxed dogs who like walkies a few times a week and snuggles everyday.

Mary-Grace
Pomeranian/Cairn Terrier mix
Female/spayed/shots current
6 lbs
8 years old

Hoping in Kirkland

 

Hi everyone.  How have you been liking this rain lately?

 I wanted to check in with everyone on FB and give you an update on how Iíve been doing.

Susie got adopted yesterday and though we had become good friends and I was sorry to see her go, my foster mom can see that I am not the barky dog she thought I was.  I do bark when I want you to know I need something but thatís it.  I kept trying to tell her it was Susieís influence.

I keep everyone laughing with my antics as they call them.  Itís true, though, I DO have a twinkle in my eye.

I have settled in very nicely and have made friends with some dogs and letís just call it a ďmilitary allianceĒ with one of the bossy dogs.  I am getting the hang of potty outside but I still use a pee pad in my bedroom.  I know a lot of people donít like this but itís all I knew and it seems very tidy to me.  Still, I am learning to go outside and let my foster mom know when I would like to go outside.

I come with a lot of veterinary records from my recent check up and exam so Iím pretty lucky to be so healthy.  Some of the people who worked so hard to keep me out of the shelter have been checking in on me and want to come for a visit.  Itís always nice to know that someone loves you.

Now I just need someone to love me who wants to give me a home.  I keep hoping.

(Adopted)
Zoe
Jack Russell Terrier
Female/spayed/shots current
13 years old

Zoe is an adorable, sweet, playful 13 year old purebred Jack Russell Terrier. 
 
Her owner went into assisted living and sadly had to give up
her dog.
Zoe is very affectionate and loves to take walks, snuggle, 
and play fetch.  She has some mild weakness in her rear end from a
previous disc injury, but it doesn't slow her down much, and it's not at all painful.
Otherwise she is very healthy.
 
She is current on all vaccines,microchipped, and just had bloodwork and dental.
 She like to have her
teeth brushed.

 Zoe would be best as an only dog, although she may get along with a dog that doesn't challenge her. 
 
She is great with cats.  She would be
fine with children over 8 years old.  She would really love a home with a fenced yard so she can run around and be a terrier.  
And yes,
she really is that cute!

Darby
Papillion/Pomeranian
Male/neutered/shots current
2 years old
9 lbs

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!

Twinkie
Chihuahua
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?

Charlotte
Cavapoo
Female/spayed/shots current
3 years old
8 lbs

Watch her video

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
there'.
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
be.

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
dogs.
*

Here in this house...

I will belong.*

* I will be home. *

There will be more furbabies needing forever homes.
