I am about 4 years young and a terrier mix. I have been all updated with my shots and got a clean bill of health from the vet. I am really good at riding in the car, walking on the leash, and even go outside to do my business. Its really busy at my foster mom’s so I get to go outside on a regular basis and if she misses my turn I will whine a bit and let her know….I need to go!!
I am really really shy at first, but once I get to know you, I warm up and am a real snuggle bug. I like to follow my human around the house and see what they are up to. I really am not sure about toys, but I love back and belly rubs. I do know a few tricks too…I LOVE to dance. Once I get to know you, I will put my paws up on you and just want some of your love and attention….remember just go slow. My foster mom thinks I'm a really sweet loving lil boy. I also know a few commands, such as come, down, etc.
My foster mom lets me have full run of the house when she has to leave, but if I must be confined I am not fond of a crate at all, but I am really good if you put me in a bathroom with some food, water, and a pee pad and dog bed, I won’t destroy the room at all, just patiently wait for my human to come home. So far my foster mom hasn’t heard me bark unless I want to play. I love to be able to run and do come when called, but remember I really need a safe, secure fenced yard.
I am good with other dogs, my foster mom’s are really nice to me and even let me snuggle up with them! I love that. Now cats, well that’s a no no….I really want to chase them so that’s probably not a good idea, but another small dog would be ok, as long as I get the love and attention I need.

you are looking for devotion from a four legged furry wonder, you just found it.
are just a few of the adjectives to describe this beautiful boy. He loves
life, toys, can jump/leap and bound right into your heart.
JoJo was adopted by a wonderful lady when he was a year old. He was adopted by his mom when she was diagnosed with breast cancer and she knew she needed a distraction, a reason to fight and win. JoJo was what she choose and together, they won the battle. Life was good until just a couple of months ago when his mom had a major stroke and had no choice but to enter assisted living. JoJo tried living there with her but the mom did not have the ability to remember to take care of his needs. Because he was so loved, the difficult decision was made to find JoJo a new home. So now we are on the search for the PERFECT home for a PERFECT dog. JoJo acts like a puppy, he is so joyous. He had always lived in an apartment, but in his foster home he has a fenced yard, and he loves, loves, loves it! He runs like a pony with abandonment. He will be an awesome pet for someone.

West Highland Terrier

is an 8 y/o spayed Westie. She's bright as a button with those black eyes
and doesn't want to miss anything. She tends to be a little bossy with the
other dogs here and hasn't previously lived with another dog, but they seem to
ignore her nosiness unless she really annoys them. Then it's a brief
growl-fest and it's over. She's a typical Westie - very social ...wants to
be where the action is and that's with the whole family!
up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped and at 23 lbs, is a wee bit on the
chubby side. But a diet is getting her back to a nice shape and weight.
She has had some minimal bladder leakage that may be due to spaying or her
age. She is responding nicely to Proin twice a day and she comes with a good
was owned by an older woman with some memory problems whose family had to move
her to Assisted Living. She'll probably do best with older owners rather
than a younger family with children.
with most all the Westies, she needs to be on a grain-free diet. No cats
and no young children. Also after being in foster care, she is best suited
to be the only dog.

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?
