Gus
Havanese/Pekingese
Male/neutered/shots current
3 years old
17 lbs

Greetings Furbaby Followers!  Iím GUS! 

My foster Mom told me to just be humble and tell the story of ME, so here it goes!

I was born in 2012 which makes me about 3 years old.  I like all of my foster dog siblings, male and female.  I even manage to get the household grumpy dog to play with me!  I am a very demanding pupÖmy foster Mom says that I need and want mucho attention and I am very good at getting that attention!  My foster Mom does everything that she can to give me lots of scratches, hugs and kisses.  I love to be in her lap and if she is doing something called ďchecking FaceBookĒ, I will scratch at her until she realizes she is wasting her time -- then she gives me all of her affection and adoration.  I love that!  I think that what I am saying is that I need someone who doesnít mind giving their very own furbaby a lot of attention! 

My perfect doggy sibling would be a doggy who maybe doesnít require so much of your attention because you really should be giving as much of your attention AS possible to ME!  Me, me, me, me, meeeeee!

My foster Mom has been taking me to a dog training class lately.  She has figured out that I am in need of a guardian who is a strong ďleaderĒ.  This means that I need to know that you are the boss of me but in a confident, nice way!  I have to know that, even on my walks, you are my protector and are keeping me safe -- I do not do well with other dogs coming up to my face if I have never met them before!  I am also very treat motivated and will do just about anything for something delicious! 

If you are looking for a BFF, Iím your dog!

Love,

Gus #GusIsCute

Buster
Dachshund
Male/neutered/shots current
8 years old
15 lbs

Here's Buster!  He's a sweet guy, a great snugglier and alerts to anyone coming up to the front door.  He's discovered the blueberry bushes and helps himself to a snack when he chooses.  He loves squeaky toys!  

He's about 8 y/o, weighs just over 15 lbs, vaccs are up-to-date and has recently had a dental (only five extractions).   He's house-trained which is a plus for Dachshunds.    

Buster lived with an elderly woman who did no training but he's coming along nicely with "wait," "stay," "be quiet," "off," and "come."  That'll need reinforcing so consistency is key and he'll do anything for tummy rubs. 
No cats!!

Chloe
Dachshund
Female/spayed/shots current
8 years old
12 lbs

Sweet Chloe is about 8 y/o, 12 lbs, up-to-date on vaccs, spayed and house-trained.  The white on her face is not indicative of old age, she has a sprinkling of white down her neck, back and even a wee bit on her tail so it's just due to inherited genes.  She's recently had a dental and unfortunately lost 14 teeth.  She does well if you let her kibble soak in warm water for a few minutes and willingly devours any pill packed in cheese so no "pilling" needed.

She absolutely loves to snuggle and under the covers at night if her favorite spot.  She hasn't show a great interest in squeaky toys but does find a fresh raw bone tasty.  She also has discovered the blueberry bushes and helps herself when there are ripe ones within reach.

No cats!!

If you are looking for a sweet lil doxie, Chloe may be the one for you.  Fostered in Olympia, WA email Furbaby Rescue for application.






(Adopted Aug.31/15)
Princess
Miniature Pinscher
Female/spayed/shots current
9 years old
15 lbs

Princess is a lovely Chestnut Min Pin (we donít get too many in that color) who lost her home.  She was on an urgent list and our Min Pin Foster Mom Lori got right on moving Princess to safety.  They have been living with one another for many weeks now and Foster mom has fallen in love with this sweet girl.

She doesnít seem to have any negative habits, is a lot of fun, and in good health overall.  We did learn in her vet exam that she needs to have a dental and possibly some extractions but those are being taken care of.  Other than that itís all good.

Princess is a really good dog, a wonderful companion, and a special treat for anyone looking for a Min Pin as their next dog.

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?

 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. *
