Scotty(aka Snoopy, cause he is so curious)
West Highland Terrier X
Male/neutered/shots current
3 years old

I am Scotty the Super Sleuth, next of kin to Sherlock Holmes. Some people say I am very nosey and that I need to know everything that is going on but it's simply because I am so intelligent, so curious, and so anxious to solve mysteries. I have saved lives. I have found escaped convicts and......OK, so those last two statements were a bit of an exaggeration.....or more accurately a complete exaggeration.  I confess, I have a vivid imagination.

Adopt me and you'll have one of the happiest dogs ever in your home. I am crate trained and all you have to do is say "Kennel" and I'll hop right into it. I love to snuggle and I'll designate my rightful place in your home and definitely in your heart. My foster mom will talk to you about if there are other dogs in your home but really and truly, you and I could make a great team just the two of us....or three of us if you're a couple. We could open our own investigation agency!!!!! We'll be rich and famous!!!!

I have only one real need from you and that is relative to my skin. I was given some not so good food previously and I had a severe allergic reaction. But now I'm doing much better and it's so simple if you'll just follow the plan. Again Foster Mom can tell which food she discovered that is working splendidly and it won't bankrupt you. You'll also learn about all the other little tricks that will keep me healthy and happy and around for a very long time.

Oops - did I mention that I've been dubbed a "real sweetie" and a "sweetheart" even though I'm nosey?  Yup, Scotty the Sweetheart as well as Super Sleuth.

So how about completing an application and then once I move in with you we can discuss opening Scotty's Detective Agency or you can just support me in the lifestyle I'd like to become accustomed to. Hmmmm - wonder where I heard that?

Sookie is a wonderful little dog who is quite the companion!  Her owner sat outside Animal Services for two hours not wanting to take her inside but he was being deployed the very next morning and felt there were no options for him and his beloved dog. 

Timing was on both of their sides and he contacted Furbaby Rescue in the nick of time.  One of our “car keys in hand” foster moms was out the door to pick up this little girl.

We were told that she loves to go on active walks and hikes, that she is inquisitive, and doesn’t like small children badgering her when she is sleeping.  She is still young enough that she operates on the “green light means go” and “red light means rest” system.

Being an intelligent dog she needs purpose and security and love.  She’s been four different places over the past five days; her home, the back seat of her owner’s car, a temporary foster home, and now her current foster home.  She has certainly made herself at home, does not seem to chase the cats, obeys submissively when an insecure Shih Tzu growls and tries to get into her face.

She appears potty trained.  She really enjoys a good meal.  She travels so well you hardly know she is in the back seat (she loves her doggy car seat).

She minds so well and imagine that she would learn tricks and/or commands quite readily.  She is friendly, quiet, and really and truly just wants to be with a human.  She gets along very well with other dogs  - she plays well with others!

We are proud to have been given the opportunity to help this serviceman’s dog and best friend.  It breaks our hearts that they had to be separated but we will all rejoice when both dog and past owner know that Sookie has a forever home.

Zoey has a story to tell you.  There is a good part and a sad part.  She would like to commence with the good part so you don’t have to wait until the end to hear that she’s doing very well:

I recently was brought into Rescue and I was taken from “pick up” directly to a veterinary hospital.  I was a little scared about this and wondered what it meant.  The people there all were wearing blue uniforms and were giving me a lot of attention and assurance.  They gave me a physical exam, took blood to see how my chemistry looked, and gave me some vaccinations.  I spent the night in a cozy little kennel.  The next thing I knew I was waking up from anesthesia.  I was a little tipsy and wow did my mouth hurt.  Then I got a medication, which made all of the pain go away, and I napped for a long time. 

I stayed at the hospital because there was no foster home for me but I got more medication to help with the pain in my mouth so I didn’t complain.  I got good food and so much attention.  It was pretty great.

Then, the foster mom who I had first met, came to pick me up and we went for a nice long car drive.  It turns out that a very nice lady wanted me to come to live with her while we looked for my new home.  She is super sweet and I already love her to pieces.  I have become quite attached to her but I can become that way with you, too.  I’m very loveable and trusting and just want to be part of a family.  I am living with terriers who are really a lot of fun and they are very nice to me.  I have a whole garden I get to explore and it’s pretty incredible.  I don’t think I NEED a garden but it’s really nice to be around all of those flowers.

I get to jump into my foster mom’s lap and she pets me while I soak up the attention.  I’m pretty skinny so I get to eat as much as I like and it sure feels wonderful to have a warm full tummy.  My foster mom is surprised that I’m perfectly housebroken.   Of course I am!  I can use a potty pad if you put one out for me, too.  I am so happy and I feel so wonderful now. 

So now that you know the good part of the story I will share with you the sad part:  I lost my first home, went to a second home, got put on Craig’s List and went to another home where the children there were allergic to me.  So that’s when I went to Rescue.  I had 7 teeth left in my mouth and one of them was hanging because tartar build up was holding it in.  It was sticking out like a saber tooth tiger’s tusk and I wasn’t very pretty.  All of my other teeth were rotten, my gums were very infected, and I had been living in pain for a very long while.  I had gotten used to it and didn’t know things could be different.  I didn’t know how to explain that I could not eat hard food.  It hurt my mouth so much and I was always hungry.

I’m a sweet, active, energetic, and loving little girl.  I am so grateful to be in the place I am in now because I know that my foster mom is looking for a wonderful home for me and now that I’m healthy and feel well, I will make a wonderful tiny companion for someone.  I got a warm soapy bath, a good trim, and a blow dryer made my hair kind of fluffy.  I have straight silky hair, so it wasn’t  too fluffy.  I thought it was just perfect.  I would really like to live in a home where I could have a bath once in awhile.  Someone asked if I ever bit anyone.  My goodness what a question, why would I ever bite anyone?  But I have no teeth left anyway and we” wee” Yorkies are not known for having powerful jaws.

“I’m a tiny little thing who can fit into a purse so I’d like to be adopted by someone who is okay with someone as small as me.”

Oh, please don't laugh at least not yet. I know I look like I've had a bad hair day. In fact, it's worse than that but if you'd been through what I've been through you wouldn't look so hot either. 

Allow me to share my story and while you're reading it, keep in mind that I really do want someone who will eventually laugh at my antics and laugh with me as we share life together. 

Even though my background is just a wee bit sketchy, my foster mom does know some important things for positive sure. I spent the first four years of my life in a puppy mill and as soon as I was old enough I was used to pump out puppies. Seems to me they should abolish those places but I had no say in the matter. Once they were done with me, I went to a place that kept me such a short time and then dumped me in a shelter. I was so scared. I didn't understand any of what was happening but now I have a foster mom who explains things to me. She praises me a lot, too, because believe it or not through everything I've experienced, I am totally house trained! She is so impressed! How's that for being good? I can go outside or I'll use pee pads if you absolutely must leave me inside for an extended period of time but I hope you won't do that very often because I've had my fill of that. 

Because foster mom realizes I am very shy, and even more so because I'm so special, she's set down some guidelines for the person who adopts me. You must be patient, kind and on the quiet side. Perhaps an older couple or a single person as long as there are no children around. In return, I'll be your snuggle bunny. Foster mom says it's OK for me to admit that I need to be a snuggle bunny. In fact, I crave it but I do have some fear issues to get over. I can assure you that in a quiet adult home I can adjust and excel. Perhaps even another very small dog, on the calm side, would be enjoyable. I could be in an apartment because I am very, very quiet. If you have a home you definitely need to have a secure fenced yard because I will get scared easily for some time to come and I might run out of total fear. I wouldn't be running from you but rather from whatever spooked me. But again, if you're patient, loving and kind I just might grow to be like a piece of velcro - stuck to you. 

Other very good attributes are I walk well on a leash, do fine in the car and can be crated at night if you insist but I hear that snuggled up on a human's bed is pretty nice. I've never tried it but whatever you want is what I'll do because I want to make you happy. And I need someone to make me happy. I think I've earned it, don't you?

My name is Coyote, my Mamma is a mini Schnauzer, and Daddy is a mini Schnauzer/West Highland Terrier/poodle...whew..I look pretty much like a Schnauzer though, maybe even cuter:-)  I am the most wonderful puppy (well that is what foster Mom says)  I love to play with other dogs, and think Marty the Lhasa is so much fun.

And the really good news, I am housetrained, how is that for a pup as young as me!  In the beginning for the first couple of hours in my foster home, I was very shy.  Foster Mom just sat with me, and petted me, and that was all it took.  Now I run through the house in glee, jump like a kangaroo (ok foster Mom says that has to be corrected) geez.

I am great lil boy, looking for my perfect home, and when you find me, I will wrap my paws around your neck, lay my head on your shoulder, and if you allow, cover you with kisses.

Please watch Shadow and Oliver's video

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.

Little Gracie loves to be held, and is happy to sleep in your lap.  Once outside in the sunshine she stretches, and rolls in the grass.  She is 4 pounds of love bug, and is a joy to hold.  She is about 2 years old, and lots of fun.  She brings a smile to my face every day, as she races through my house to the back yard.
She would love to be adopted with her friend Meriska, but foster Mom thinks they will be ok, if in the right home, and  another lil dog to hang with.

Gracie is crate trained and goes in without complaint.

Gracie and Meriska were adopted together to a great home, residing in Everett, WA

Meriska is also a very happy girl.  She is a little more dominate than Gracie, but just as sweet!  She gets so excited when I have company, and will hurry over to jump on the new folks.  As soon as you pick her up she melts in your arms, and tries to lick your face.  The girl is full of kisses.  She weighs about 8 pounds, and is very fast!
Meriska would love to be adopted with her friend Gracie, but foster Mom believes she will be alright separated, if in the right home and another lil doggie to hang with.

Meriska is crate trained.

Rocky wants to be in on everything.  Is very attentive and protective of his foster Mom.  Sometimes a bit tentative with new people who come into the house but will warm up to them in his sweet time.  A typical Dachshund, he is a skilled snuggler.  He's quick to respond to commands and eager to please.  He is occasionally interested in squeaky toys.
Now happily residing in Mill Creek, WA
