Tanner is a senior Puggle. He is 10 to 12 years of age we believe.
He was severely neglected and came into rescue with quite a few medical needs, all of which have been taken care of.

He was found in Jefferson County and that group of folks at the Humane Society plus their vet are really quite amazing. They do everything in their power to find a place for every creature that comes to them in need. We have been fortunate to have taken in a few of them and turned something very neglected into a brand new dog. If the dog isn't an exceptional ambassador of the breed (or mix) then they do not ask us to take them in. So, when a "Jefferson County" dog comes to us we KNOW it's a sweetheart.

Tanner is friendly, kind, easy going, loving, and accepting of whatever comes his way.

He had the worst teeth our Dr. Ivana had ever seen on any dog but after some deep cleaning and extractions - dental X rays to make sure we didn't miss anything - his gums and teeth are in great shape.

He had a large odd mass hanging off of his right hip. This was removed and determined to be a low grade mast cell tumor for which surgery was curative. He does have a heart murmur but tolerated his anesthesia very well.

Tanner comes to you "turn key" and ready to join your family with no veterinary concerns hanging fire. All you have to do is have fun with him.

He is a gem.
Tanner is fostered in Olympia WA.

Lucy is a little spitfire who needs an active home.  She is still a puppy in many ways except that she is house trained. 

When you see her in person you will laugh yourself silly because she is just such a character!  She is funny, charming, really sweet and loving and loyal.  She is looking for friends and family.

In her foster home she gets along really well with all of the dogs.  She and one of the dogs are really good friends who mutually benefit from her energy level and love of playing.  However, they do squabble once in a while so her foster parents actually think she might be best as an only dog or sometimes just the right match.

Everyone who meets her falls in love.


Lucy is fostered in Kirkland WA, for application email Furbaby Rescue.

Magnificent Murphy


Yes, yes, yes...my name is Murphy with an M and my foster Mum says that M also stands for Magnificent!  My foster Mom says that I am an awesome dog just-a-waitiní for an awesome family to call my very own!


Iím a bit of a busy boy and love to do things all day long!  I am just 1 year old and I need lots of toys and delicious things to chew on to keep me engaged and occupied throughout each and every day.  My foster Mom says that I am bright eyed and bushy tailed as soon as I wake up and that I stay that way until the time that I go to bed at night! 


My ideal home might have another playful, younger dog (probably my size or bigger) for me to play with OR maybe I could go to doggie daycare a couple of days a week so that I can make friends and race around like a complete nut!  I am an awesome companion and am very good natured in general!  I would really like it if my people were home a lot during the day and if they would take me all over the place with them!  Yes, this would be my perfect world, my perfect world, I tell you!


Please submit your application today!  I canít wait to meet you!

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!

 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. *
