Silver is one of the nicest little Pekes you'll ever meet. Being a mother has put a burden of responsibility on her shoulders but she's glad those days are over. Now she just wants to let someone mother her and spend her free time playing, loving you, making you happy, letting you make her happy and napping wouldn't be all bad either. She's house trained (yay!!!) and ready to move in her new forever home. If you want to know more about her personality ask for a meet and greet and see for yourself. We're betting you won't be able to leave without her.

Nice to meet you, I’m Miss Pipa. I am an ADORABLE, sweet, loving, playful, silly, snuggly, happy, social, tiny Chihuahua.  You can’t tell from my photo but I only  have 3 legs. I had to have my front left leg amputated due to an old injury.  You see, I was found by our local animal control.  They brought me to the shelter, made me safe then called Furbaby Rescue- the shelter knew I would need special care.  The wonderful people over at Maplewood Animal Hospital gave me a  full medical exam and determined my leg, most likely, was broken at the elbow when I was just a pup… and never was repaired. When the bone healed, it healed improperly and  now, all grown up the leg was just a burden to me, I was glad to see it go.  Don’t pity me… I get can around just fine!

I am very social with dogs of all sizes, cats too. I love people and hope I get adopted to someone who will treat me like an angel. I hope to have a sibling or regular access to other dogs to play with,  I am a fun dog! I am quite small so tiny dog experience will be a must for my adoption.

Hi y'all, 

My name is Tucker and I just retired from being a trucker. OK, so that's a small fib but you did take a second look didn't you when you read that? I bet you thought "He doesn't look like any old trucker." Now take another second look and consider what a nice addition I could be to your home. I'm house trained and use a doggy door so that's worth a lot, I think. I'm not a toy hound so that saves you money on those silly, annoying squeaky toys. I'd just rather use that energy on quietly snuggling up beside you on the couch and that takes a lot of energy.    ZZZZz-zzzzz-z-z-   After we've had our nap then I'll amaze you with the commands I know like sit, down, roll over and sit pretty. And I can look pretty cute when a treat is dangled in front of me. I'll even let you rub my tummy in return for a treat. Hah~ What a deal that is. 

Yup, I'm a simple little dude. Not very demanding with a ton of love to give. Could you really ask for much more?

I'm a crazy mixed up little girl that has so-o-o-o much potential.  I simply need a chance.  First of all, I'm a mixed breed and some people turn their noses at that.  I was in a high kill shelter and as a mixed breed the old clock was ticking until I went to "that room."  Someone saw my potential and I went to rescue...thank the Doggie God for that person!  Now I only need one more person to see my potential and click on the link below to ask to adopt me.

Look at my face.  Do you see the little bit of pleading, a pinch of worry, and a lot of seriousness?  Well just behind that are some doggie smiles waiting to come out.  All it will take is some attention and affection.  A nice warm lap to cuddle up in would surely expedite the process of bringing some sparkle to my eyes.  I've heard about something called "playing", too but I don't know what that is.  Sounds like fun and I need a patient person to show me what playing is all about.  I'd love to go to a dog obedience class too and learn to walk on a leash.  I understand that there are millions of smells out there in the world that I could experience once I'm leash trained.  And I wouldn't mind learning some basic commands like "sit"," stay", "down" etc.  I've seen other dogs do it and they look pretty smart.  I KNOW I could do it , too, if I had an owner that cared. 

So I'm begging a little bit here.  I may look like a lot of other ordinary dogs but I assure you I am far from it.  With your love and help I can be EXTRAORDINARY!

Click, click, click--just click on the link and let's get acquainted.  I will make you proud! Promise

As you read through Furbaby Rescue's website you'll see numerous funny and cute stories about available dogs. We can't quite do that with Layla because here's one of those rare dogs where you look at the face and you feel like a human is looking back at you. It's a face that immediately catches your attention and makes you want to just smile back at her. 

Layla is a wonderful little dog with many aspects to her being. She loves to snuggle and a big, wonderful asset.....she's housebroken!!! She gets along with others and loves to play ball showing off that she knows how to fetch and return it to you so you'll throw it again. This is great exercise and you'll want to continue it since she's just a wee bit on the fluffy side but that's easily remedied with an appropriate dog food and lots of playtime. 

As with many dogs, Layla has a medical issue that is easily controlled. She has had epileptic seizures in the past but hasn't suffered one in three years. The meds are doing their job! Don't you love it when you have a great veterinarian that helps resolve problems? 

And...Layla does have one strong dislike. Don't we all?  She hates being crated and is quite adamant about that. However, she's quite content following her owner around so as long as you know where she is and what she's doing, living crateless shouldn't be an issue.  

Remember all of the Furbaby Rescue dogs are spayed (as is Layla) and up to date on vaccinations. Plus our foster homes can usually provide you enough information on each dog so you start out feeling like you already know the dog of your choice. Speaking of choice, we hope Layla will be your choice. 

A few days ago, sadly Layla lost the use of her back legs, she was promptly taken to the vet, and is now on prednisone and rest, hoping it will be restored.  She may end up disabled and in a wheelchair, the foster Mom is very upset, as this is one darling sweet lil furbaby, who deserves a chance.
And she got that chance happily residing in Issaquah, WA

A CHIWEENIE????? ARE YOU SERIOUS? Where does it say in Genesis that God created man, woman, the animals, etc. and then a Chiweenie?  I mean REALLY!!! And look what happened when someone messed with Mother Nature! I have one Dachshund ear and one Chihuahua ear! Whomever did this should have left well enough alone. *SIGH!!!* At least I'm normal in every other way. 

I'm going to be sure that the lady who titles these write ups and puts them on the web page makes it crystal clear that I'm special. Even more important, she better make sure she mentions that I'm pleasant,  well mannered and compatible with older children. In fact, I used to sleep with my former owner's granddaughter. That was really nice because she let me under the covers and when I got too warm I just wiggled out where it was cooler. I do tend to chase cats so there better not be any in my next home or there just might be a Cataweenie on the ....well, forget it. Let's just say I'm "allergic" to cats.  I like men as well as women so no problem there as long as I can be a best friend to both. I may get a bit protective but that's where a good and knowledgeable dog owner needs to just keep reminding me that the human is the boss. That's pretty typical with every dog. 

As with all Furbaby Rescue dogs, I will be update on veterinarian care including vaccinations so I'm ready to go........hmmmm...wonder if a plastic surgeon might adopt me and make my ears match??? On second thought, I think they're just fine the way they are. It gives me character...a uniqueness that no other dog will have. Yup, I'll just wait for a special person to spoil me rotten and who thinks my ears just make me adorable and irresistible.

Sherwood’s Foster Mom Michele:

“When I was asked to take in Sherwood I had no idea what I was getting myself in for.  His history was so bleak with neglect and cruelty that I feared the worse.  What I found, instead, was one of the most dignified dogs I have ever met.  Quiet, gentle, submissive, and smart smart smart.  This dog could have given up but he knew he had a third chapter waiting for him to live.

When I first observed Sherwood clinically, I had concerns about his mouth and his skin.  I was also worried about the bulges through the skin beneath his eyes, wondering if those could be tumors or tooth abscesses.  After he was examined by the veterinarian and I learned of the physical condition he was in I nearly cried.  He had yeast and bacterial infections of his skin, which I suspected.  He had fleas and super long toe nails.  I knew from his smell that his gums were likely not in great shape. 

The teeth were so rotted, the gums so infected, that abscesses had pushed through his fragile skin, beneath his eyelids.  I was told that between those and the rest of the mess that for this dog it would be like us living with a constant Migraine and ice pick jabbing into our sinuses.  Had this been going on in a human’s body; without medical help the person would not be able to withstand the pain.

And he was SO nice, SO happy, and ready to get healthy.  What an incredible little fellow.  I was in love with him after five minutes but every hour that passed, my respect and admiration for this dog’s spirit grew.  I prayed he would survive the surgery and the anesthesia.  I would have liked to have had him on antibiotics longer than a couple of days but it was imperative to get him into surgery as soon as possible.

All of his teeth had to be removed except his four canines, which is interesting and lucky because he will be able to keep his tongue inside of his mouth!

He is still in a lot of pain and is still shaking but while in the hospital for two nights he got some good drugs.  What a relief that must have been.  He’s got a ways to go until the pain subsides but every day it will get a bit better.

Sherwood minds you and does everything you ask of him.  He is amazing. 

I maintain that I am not a doxie person and yet I have been privileged to have shared my home and life with a few lately and I keep saying with each one that I understand what all the attraction is.  I thought Gretyl was really something and she is…she’s a wild and crazy fun loving little gal.  But Sherwood is exceptional.  He is an amazing dog.  I am so grateful to his rescuer who knew he needed help."

Matilda is a perky and energetic little terrier who is as adorable in person as in her photo.  She’s sweet, happy go lucky, undemanding, and a lot of fun.

Her owner passed away and the owner’s sister took Matilda in until she recently became hospitalized and Matilda needed a new home yet again.

She was friendly upon first meeting her foster mom, she just jumped in the car and off they went.

Matilda had been neglected a bit, which is common when owners are themselves ill.  She needed a dental and to have some benign cysts removed from her body.  We took care of both of those things, got baseline blood work, and got her caught up with her vaccinations.  She had been eating “people” food and not always the best representation of the array available.  She led a sedentary life, as well.  So she will be working off a good 2 pounds, improving her diet, building some muscle mass, and getting her more activity.  She does have 6 large sutures on her body so we have to try to keep her from over exerting herself while those stitches have a chance to heal.  But it’s hard to keep her down. 

Matilda is the perfect name for this little angel.  Her foster mom is old enough to remember singing “Waltzing Matilda” in elementary school and can’t help but sometimes refer to her as such.  She is chomping at the bit to live an active life but we are being careful for now.  She’s zipped and buttoned up as tightly as the surgeon could manage and hopefully that will keep everything in position for a good heal

She has already made herself right at home here, doesn’t mind all of the dogs and doesn’t seem to bother the cats ……YET….we are always suspicious with any terrier from “down under”.  She is looking for a pair of loving arms to jump into.

Tilda is happily residing in Seattle, WA

Hi everyone, I’m Alfie. A very sweet, quiet, relaxed boy who is looking for my forever home.  My owner passed away and my life has been a bit chaotic… but I am trying to adjust. I like other dogs, but so far have not been much of a player.  My foster home has another dog and she is trying to change that!  I am crate trained, potty trained and do well being alone during the day.  I enjoy walks and do well on my leash. I like squeaky toys and enjoy a game if fetch, but I am not pushy with my toys and I share well.

I am looking for a quiet home,  somewhere that I can settle in and snuggle. I’d love to have another dog in my life,  but it’s not a requirement.

Nice, calm, gentlemanly dog looking for the same qualities in a human. Oh, you could be ladylike instead of gentlemanly. The point is I'm nice to have around and appreciate calm environments. I like to be petted whenever you want to do so but I'll never hound you (hmmm wonder where that term came from?) to pay attention to me. Just invite me up into your lap or beside you and I'll be there....gladly...but I really prefer to be invited. 

I'm housebroken. Well, I would hope so after all these years. And speaking of "all those years" my age isn't so bad. There are no guarantees in life but I feel like I still have a lot left to give to someone. If you're older I won't turn you away because you may be in the final years so I hope you won't pass me up because of my age. Shoot, I think we could still spend much time taking walks together which I love and which would keep us both healthy. 

Got questions?? Ask my foster Mom.  Want to meet me? Just ask and we'll make plans to do so.
