Moxie (nka Rocco)
App. 10 months old
Male/neutered/shots current
10 lbs/9" tall
We don't know what he is??

Could have some Pom or Chi in him, he is colored like a tortoiseshell  cat...very unusual and striking small boy, his tail curls tightly over his back, which is not shown in the above picture.

Moxie is a sweetheart, he is very playful, energetic but not hyper...he loves playing with my Sheltie, who they are about the same size (my Sheltie is only 9" tall) he loves to cover you with kisses..he is very bright, inquisitive and eager... ...when you first met him, he may be barky and uneasy...if you give him 5 minutes to view you as a friend, he will be all over just have to get past that initial first meeting...mainly his issue is being a bit scared, and if he gets upset, or too excited when you come home, he  sometimes does submissive urination...which at his age, is not is easy to work with...he needs his confidence built...and in the right home, with unconditional love, this boy will blossom into a great great dog...
Rocco went to live with a wonderful family, who had just lost their dog suddenly, Rocco was able to replace that grieve with happiness...residing happily in Seattle, WA

One cold and rainy night, I was tied to a picnic bench outside of a restaurant on a busy highway.  My bed, toys, food were beside me, with a note.."my name is Felix"..early the next morning I was discovered by the employee of the restaurant, I was in such a mess, terribly matted, ears so dirty, it took so many washing to finally clean them.  But I showed her, and everyone I touched, that I am incredible, kind, loving, sweet, housetrained, and oh I love those cats, give me a kitty, and I will wash them for you...but even with her warm and kind heart, she had no room to take in yet another dog, so I am in the loving care of Furbaby...where they whisked me away, got my teeth cleaned, another power washing..and it is hard to believe that I would be left stranded, I am so sweet, won't you come and give me a home, I promise to adore you, give my barks of glee when you come home, just never abandon me again..
Felix is now living with a sweet older lady, who loves having him as her constant companion, residing in Bellingham, WA

What can you say about the sweetest peke, except that if you love this breed, she will totally steal your heart, she loves to sit in your lap, give kisses, she insists on sleeping with you, unless you want to hear her "woo woo's" of protest...she is a cuddler and a lover.  She is housetrained, and will be an amazing companion for the right home.  I was told Pooter does not like children, so an adult home only...Pooter does fine with other dogs, adores men and loves women...what a fabulous little girl.  Pooter now has a wonderful new Dad who adores Pekes, happily residing in Federal Way, WA

Buddy (nka Busby)
Cairn Terrier
Male/neutered/shots current
App. 9 years old

Cancer took Buddy's life, he brought such joy to his foster home, and his forever foster home, many tears were shed, when this precious soul, crossed the bridge, I want to thank Ginny for giving him the best time, with hiking, camping and exploring till God called him back...

I was tossed away, when a new puppy arrived, they said the puppy didn't like me, I gave them my life, and in return they took me to the vet to be put to sleep, why would they do that, I have so much life and love to still give...I am so kind, gentle and one of the nicest boys you would ever want to meet...I love to frolic in the yard, putting my nose to the ground and sniffing all that life has to offer...I cuddle in my bed at night, I am no trouble, I am so loving, and hearing is a little dim..but that does not stop my heart from being full...we discovered that Busby had throat cancer, and we were all devastated, but a wonderful lady and her husband, who worked with Colonel Potter's Cairn Rescue, said Busby has a place in our home and hearts, for however long or short he has...thank you Ginny, residing happily with another Cairn in Yakima, WA

Mindy (nka Fendie)
Miniature Poodle
Female/spayed/shots current
App. 8 years old
10 lbs
*sadly Fendie crossed to the bridge, March 27/07*

I lost my family, my heart is breaking, I cry, asking my foster Mom, "please  take me home to my Mom and Dad" , she does not answer, they told her, that they needed to move to a retirement home, that does not allow dogs, my foster Mom holds me, with tears slowly trickling down her cheek, because she does not have the answer, because she loves us all, she does not understand how a life has no meaning, she does not understand, that no matter what, our babies are part of our family, and that they would always remain with us, Mindy does not understand why she was not loved enough to belong...she sits in my arms crying for her parents, who turned away...she is a love, who wants to be loved...why was she not loved enough, foster Mom does not understand and I do not either...please open your heart, give me a home, and never leave me again....

Mindy had not seen a groomer in YEARS, her anal glands were impacted, my groomer who adores poodles, spent hours to restore her beauty...Mindy is a sweet girl, who wants to belong..she has an appointment with my vet, and will have her teeth cleaned, and hopefully will not find any other health issues...this girl has a great home, living with another of our rescue babies Dino, and their beautiful Shih/Poo, Gremlin, residing in Maple Valley, WA

Lilo is a very outgoing, happy, go lucky dog, who just wants her own home and someone to love her...she runs through the yard at top speed, happy and playful, she will bond very very deeply with her person, she is beautiful, a very nice girl...she does have one problem, that must be worked with, she does have some separation anxiety, and can be a bit destructive when left alone...her foster Mom crates her, and Lilo has no problems with that...but it would be nice not to crate her, perhaps if you had a room, like a laundry room, that she could stay in when you needed to leave her, till you have worked with her, and she realizes you will return...she is so worth the work, you will be delighted when you met her, she gives her whole self to you, and will be a very loyal, loving companion...

Sammie is a wonderful older gentleman who was dumped in a shelter.  We don't know his age or his story only that he has a lot of love to give.  He clearly had someone who loved him once as all he wants to do is follow you around and lay next to you on the couch or bed.  Sammie doesn't hear very well but that doesn't keep him from finding you no matter where you go in the house.  Sammie loves to wander in the yard and lie in the sun.  He likes car rides and lots of naps.  He is on medication for a slight heart murmur.  Well someone did want to love this sweet older boy, he has a wonderful new Mom, living in Seattle, WA

*sadly passed away Nov.20/14 after 10 incredible years with her awesome owners*

How long has my discomfort and pain gone on for, my body encrusted in mats, so twined into my body, that I am left with sores, the toes and nails on one of my paws, is turning upwards, from not being able to walk properly in how long, months, years, at the very least one year, my body was crawling with hundreds of fleas, nests of them in my eyes, in my ears, the torture of being so infested, and not able to scratch, barely able to foster Mom and her friend/groomer worked close to 3 hours, to cut/shave/shear the mats twisted on my body, and through all of this, and sometimes painful, I licked their hand, I never cried out in dismay, I allowed them to clean me, I was bathed three times, the blood poured off of me, from the meal the fleas were dining on.  When I was finally shaved and cleaned, I was put on the ground, I did not know how to walk normally, still hunching over, not realizing my body was free and I was taken to the vet, who spayed me, repaired a hernia, cleaned my teeth, bloodwork, and I am healthy, for the condition I was in, my skin is good, after all my medical, I am on antibiotics for slight infection...
I am just the sweetest little angel, who already has stolen everyone's heart, now I need a real home, who will NEVER allow this to happen again, soon I will have a beautiful coat, and I am beautiful, because my soul is...
Mary Anna, has two wonderful parents, who say she has quite the spirit, adored in Victoria, B.C. Canada

Note: I have been rescuing for 8 years now, I have seen puppymill dogs, shelter dogs, the worst of the worst, with fur in appalling conditions, Mary-Anna is one of the WORST I have encountered.
And this dog was an owner release....

Farley (nka Charley)
Male/neutered/shots current
App. 7 years old
11 lbs
(with the deepest sadness, darling Charley went to the bridge Jan.27/10)

You look at me and see a rare breed in rescue, but really I am just Farley, an easy going guy who wants to go to a great home and put an end to my travels in a peaceful setting with caring people and lots of love.  Farley will not go to a home to become a status symbol or with children, or with dominant dogs...Farley just wants love, comfort and just to be "a dog" me for being me...
The way I walk and prance, I have been on a lead, and maybe I was "a show dog" I am the only one who me for me..I will fill your heart and soul...I am endearing, a bit shy..but what a delight I will be, once you open yourself to me....
I did have major work on my teeth, and did lose my back molars, and am presently on heart meds, for a slight heart murmur..
Charley has a beautiful new Mom "Karina" a cat to romp with, and tons of love lavished on him...residing in Portland, Oregon

You rescued ME.

They called you a “rescue dog” because I adopted you from a rescue organization; but they really don’t know the truth. It was you who rescued me from one of the darkest parts of my life. It was thanks to you that my life is what it is now; you made it all better.

I will never know what you went through before we found each other that cool, rainy July 6 years ago; but your small 12 lb frame told the story of a pretty rough little life, deprived from food, deprived from proper healthcare and grooming… perhaps deprived from ever knowing loving, tender human hands.

Nobody will ever know how old or young you were when you came to me, hard to tell based on your fragile health. I just know you held in there for me as much as you could all these years, and didn’t decide it was time to set free until you was absolutely certain that all danger was driven away from me.

I tried and gave you the world, all my love, everything I could possibly give you my sweet little angel dog… my best friend and companion. There will never be another dog like you, with your quiet demeanor and your sweet acceptance of all living creatures, cats, birds, other dogs, children and old people alike. Your wisdom many times made me feel you really knew what was going on, you really knew more than what I will ever know.

You never liked the cold, the ice and snow… You didn’t like the rainy Pacific Northwest more than I did, and you were never happier than after we moved together to sunny Texas, our new home. Life started then for the both of us!

I’m sad that I couldn’t provide you with your very own backyard to run and play as you pleased while you were still able to do so… But I know in my heart of hearts that you were never happier than in my own arms, when I kissed your face over and over again until I made you yawn.

I will never forget how much you loved car rides, the wind blowing on your face… chasing me around in my old apartment in Portland, or sleeping with me in bed… eating fresh watermelon, apples, and pears.

You loved ALL human food smells, and loved sleeping in the kitchen near the stove, the microwave, the pantry, and the refrigerator “the gateway to all things good” for you. Even after you lost your sight you always manage to find what you were looking for in only a few seconds, especially if it smelled good!

I will always love you Charlie Farley… you will always be my first and most loved doggie in the whole world, the wise old man that knew how to chill in style… loved sleeping in, and did not mind wearing all kind of doggie sweaters, windbreakers, raincoats and doggie boots for as long as they kept you nice and cozy.

My heart aches with pain knowing that I won’t see you again for who knows how long, until the Lord decides to reunite us again. But in the meantime my friend… be happy, run free, jump, and play with all your doggie friends… Bark loud with joy for all those many times you didn’t on earth… Play fetch, hide bones, and lick all the shoes you want if they have them available to you in Heaven.

Mommy will ALWAYS love you and will be with you in heart and soul… until we meet again someday at the Rainbow Bridge. You will walk with me and we'll cross over together... only then I'll hold you in my arms and kiss your face again, and this time we'll stay together forever.


Request from the Rainbow Bridge
by Constance Jenkins

Weep not for me though I am gone
Into that gentle night.

Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight.

I am at peace, my soul's at rest...
There is no need for tears.

For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.

There is no pain, I suffer not
The fear now all is gone.

Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.

Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife.

Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.

Dixie is a darling girl, she is playful, happy and loving, I feel like she once had a Mom and Dad, as she is equally happy with both, she does get along with other dogs, and found that she particularly liked my son's border collie, though she likes to be in charge, and sometimes she can get bossy with other dogs, but she only takes a couple of time outs, to really figure out who is in charge, and that is not her:-) 
She is housetrained, and a very pleasant girl to be around, she would love to have someone to dote on her..
Her new Dad (Dixie's pet, as he put it) loves this funny but beautiful lil imp...and she has a new Mom and older doggie friend, who I am sure Dixie put in his place...residing in Seattle, WA
