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!

Sadie – Likes Cats!!


Sadie has had quite a journey so far in her young life.  We are astonished at how sweet, loving, trusting, and gentle she is.  We KNOW that she’s part Schnauzer but you have to see her up close to catch the resemblance.  On first glance she appears to be a scruffy sort of Jack Russell Terrier with a Lhasa overshot jaw.

What she IS…is absolutely dear.

She needed a home ASAP and she was fortunate that the” Schnauzer Foster Home” was available.  When she arrived, she met all of the resident Schnauzers and thought she was amongst her own.  Sadie was the only one with an actual tail but it was wagging along with the little cropped stumps of the other dogs.

Sadie, unfortunately, has been living in isolation from human or canine compassion and affection.  She is looking for a home in which she will have possibly both but definitely needs to be with a person or two who will love and cherish her and never ever want to give her up.  She has been moved around due to human’s poor choices in their own lives and she has been the victim of these poor choices.  She deserves better and is going to get the best.

Sadie is healthy, has been potty trained but since she has been living in a house where the human ignored her, we think a recent Poo on the rug inside the doggy door was a definite cry for help.  She has been desperate for love and attention.

Through everything she is just wonderful.  She wants to be a best friend, loves walks, loves to play, and wants someone that SHE can love back.  We want a home for her in which she will feel settled and centered because her owner has his or her life together.

We really love that she has the qualities of all of these breeds and that together they tone down any negative characteristics of any one particular breed.  It may seem a little crazy but it sure works for her.

Sadie has excellent car manners, quiet house manners, and when her adoring eyes catch yours, your heart will melt. 

Heart?  Melt?  Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Foster Mom Michele:  “How do I begin?  What can I say? Just look at the face and that’s Susie.  She’s simply sweet, adorable, funny as heck, cute and loveable.

Susie is part Poodle and part Chihuahua and until she had a groom she looked like a black “wooly bear” caterpillar with tiny little legs.

 She belonged to a woman with Dementia who hadn’t been able to care for Susie for quite awhile but she and her family did their best by teaching her to use potty pads.  Sometimes, that’s the best system in these situations.  We were quite literally on “standby” waiting for Susie because the family was desperately trying to find a room in a care facility to take in Susie’s owner and the day that room was located, the owner was to move in, and Susie would be living in a car on her way to the shelter.  No one wanted that to happen to her so we freed up our schedule to accommodate this spontaneous arrival.

When she arrived she was a wee black oval, a little skittish, and very concerned.  She had no records so the vet started from scratch.  Susie had the full senior assessment panel and was found to be in excellent health other than a yucky mouth.  She has been brought up to our standards and had a lovely groom courtesy of Nolyn who groomed Susie during her off hours at the vet clinic.

Foster Mom had never met a PooChi before but they must be really adorable because Susie sure is.  She is lively and curious like we might expect a Chihuahua to be and is loyal and at red alert when she hears intruders like many small poodles.  She is not a barky dog by any means but she cannot live in an apartment or condo where she will hear what she thinks are intruders all day long and bark at them.

Susie has her own bed and she arranges things within it “just so”.  She loves to go on walks and could certainly learn to potty outside but she is definitely a potty pad user at this time.

We absolutely adore this dog.”

Papillion mix
Female/spayed/shots current
3 years old
11 lbs

Isn’t Penny gorgeous?  She has such incredible markings on her face and body and what lovely hair she has, too.

Penny is a pretty easy little girl to have around.  She is fun and attentive.  She loves to go in the car and walks are super fun for her. 

The mix in her makes her a little smaller than a Papillon which is kind of nice for lifting and fitting into cozy spaces.

Penny lived with a young woman who loved her with all of her heart but became ill and could no longer care for herself let alone Penny.   She did the best thing she could for her best friend and put her into Rescue where we could take care of her while looking for her forever and ever home.

We have her now and we just love her to pieces.  Gads can she run fast on those little legs.  We are working on teaching her to fetch so she has something to run towards.  But she could run towards YOU just as readily.

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!

Hellooooooo 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? 

Let’s see how many questions you can answer “yes” to and we’ll 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? I’d do the same for you, not that you’d want to sniff around. *wink*

Would you like to see me “dance” for cookies? Yes? Oh, I forgot, food control. Well, we can handle that, right?

Do 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*

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 don’t 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 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?

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
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. *

There will be more furbabies needing forever homes.
