When you raise your hand, please do it with love, never touch me, or scold me in anger, I have already suffered, I gave birth to beautiful puppies, living in a TV box, when kind hands held me, I was afraid, I was starving for food and love, I ate two bowls of food and three bowls of water, to replenish my body when I was rescued, my babies had taken everything I had, finally I was full, and now I ache to be loved, if you approach me too fast, I will cower, hands have hurt me, but the hands and arms I find now, caress me in love, and in turn, I will cuddle so deeply in you, I will put my paws on you, and beg for love, I will cover you in kisses, I am a kind and spirited girl..but life has not been kind to me, but I promise if you show me love, promise not to hurt me again, I will be your devoted companion, I love to play with other dogs, finally I do not have to eat so much, because food and cool water is now always available. I promise I will be an astounding companion, and fill your heart with love, as long as you fill mine...

Mugsy is a sweet little dog, a real cuddlier who only wants to be with his people all the time.  He was friendly to everyone at the shelter and loves to meet new people.  He loves to curl up on your lap, in your bed or even behind you in your chair.  He loves to suck on his squeaky toys and is always ready to go for a car ride.  In foster care at first Mugsy was shy with the other dogs but now he has 2 pals that he especially likes and will even run through the house playing with them.  He walks well on a leash, is housetrained and is in excellent health.

Mugsy lost his home when the family had a new baby, he is really anxious to find a "forever" family.  Mugsy can be protective of his yard and home, but if he is picked up or put away until guests settle he does very well.  Mugsy would do best in a home with someone around a lot, and he will not be placed with children or in a very busy home.
Mugsy, hit the jackpot, he is so adored by two very very special people, living the great life in Seattle, WA

Joe should gain a pound or two to fill out.  Joe has been with one family his whole life.  He was a good puppy but always seemed a little nervous round the young children.  As the children became bigger and more active, Joe became aggressive to them and to their friends that would come over for play dates.  Joe went to stay at Grandpa and Grandma's house while his family was moving.  Joe thrived in the quieter environment.  He loved being the center of attention, napping in the sunshine, taking walks and spending night time on a lap (under the blanket of course).  It became apparent that Joe wanted a less busy household to call his own.

Typical of the breed, Joe can be somewhat exclusive with his owners.  He is not fond of strangers coming into his house.  He will settle down after getting to know the new person but his new owner will need to work with him on this.  Joe has done very well with the household dogs and didn't attempt to chase any of the cats.  He has shown no food aggression and slept in his crate without making a sound!  He is more than happy to work for treats!

Joe is now living in Abbotsford, B.C. with a lovely lady and her other adored furbabies...thank you for providing Joe with such a wonderful home.

Hi, my name is Duffy, and I am a proud Scottie...I get along wonderfully with my foster parents resident dogs, consisting of Lhasas and Beagles, one of their Lhasa's by the name of Bailey, kind of told me, where my place in the pack was, so I agreed :-)
I am a wonderful dog, and if you know, understand and love Scotties, you will love me...
Duffy has a wonderful home, residing in Seattle, WA

*Darling Willie had a stroke on Nov.14/04, his health declined rapidly, where he no longer had any quality of life, his foster Mom, could not watch him suffer, and realized it was time for this baby to cross the your sight will be restored, and you can run and play once again...goodbye dear friend"

Miniature Pinscher

What kind of person would turn their older dog out on the streets to fend for themselves??? Willie was found wandering the cold, wet streets.  Animal control officers picked him up and took him to the shelter.  Willie waited and waited for his family to come for him but it became obvious that his family had turned their back on him.  So much for all the loyalty and love Willie gave over the years.
Willie is a very sweet, quiet, loving min pin.  The vet believes him to be 12.  He is 10 inches tall and weighs 8 lbs.  Despite his limited vision, he has mastered the doggy door and holds his own with the other minpins.  He appears to have spent a lot of time outside.  In foster care he has discovered the pleasure of warm blankets and soft pillow.  His favorite hobbies are snuggling, sleeping and eating.  Willie's fondest wish is to find a home for the holidays.  He will repay your kindness by being by your side whether you are watching TV, reading a book or taking short walks through the neighborhood.  Willie enjoys car rides as long as he is allowed to sit on your lap.

Joey is a spunky boy.  He is perfectly housebroken and has very nice manners.  He has been to obedience and will sit for a cookie or to be leashed.  Just ask him and he will sit.  He appears to be fine with people of all ages, as long as he has a chance to acquaint himself.  He gets along with all the small dogs in foster care.  I think he might chase cats but can't say for sure as he wanted to chase a cat outside.  Joey comes with his own bed on which he sleeps on the floor, a jacket and some toys also a crate with a bed.  He is a good eater, has lots of fun energy but walks well on the leash.  Joey loves to watch TV - sometimes he wants to interact with the TV personalities and has been known to turn the set off!  My only concern would be he sometimes hears "something" (he has amazing hearing) and will bark! I don't think he would fit into apartment living for that reason only.  He would not mind having a playmate but seems to be content just to watch the tube with his person too.  I would like to see him shomewhere where he could run free a little, maybe doggie daycare or a home with active people to go walking or jogging.  He is a happy and very sweet boy.
Joey's picture does not do him justice, he is by far one of the most stunning poodles that I have meet...a chocolate/silver color, he is top of the height for a mini...he is absolutely drop dead gorgeous...
Joey is now adored by a wonderful couple, who are enjoying this boy and loving him more everyday..he has brought great joy into their home..

*Darling Brody passed to the bridge in Sept/07, his Mom misses him terribly*

Approximately 1.5 years ago, a person was riding their horse on a trail, and just when the horse was going to step, the person noticed that a deposit made from another animal, was moving, and rolling in the "dung" was this tiny (but certainly not white dog). He was a mess, his home was never found.  This baby was rehomed a couple of times, but the owners could not stand the smell of his breath, and would not get his much needed dental done.  Finally he arrived in my rescue, immediately taken to the vet, this poor baby lost all his teeth expect for three, the pain and misery this boy has been in for such a long time is unforgivable.  He is now recuperating and doing wonderfully, he also had his neutering done at the same time.  To know Brody, is to want to take care of him, he crawls deeply into your heart, his shyness endears you to him, once he knows you, he clings to you, only asking to be loved.  Originally the vet thought him to be close to nine, but his eyes are bright, his coat is in good condition, and does not act like a older dog...but with his teeth so bad, sometimes age is hard to determine, but I do not believe him older than 7.  If you want a devoted lap companion, meet Brody, he will be shy at first, but he will brighten your heart to have such an endearing baby share your life..
Thank you Sheila, for giving Brody such a wonderful home, residing in Moses Lake, WA

Terrier Mix
8-9 years old?
Female/spayed/shots current

Kelly is a gentle, easy going gal.  She is intelligent, loving and has excellent manners with people and with other dogs.  She would love a comfortable, quiet adult home to live in with someone who needs a quiet friend to cuddle.  She has a good appetite so care will have to be taken that she doesn't enjoy too much food!  Fine walking on a leash, she is also learning the doggy door to take herself in and out with almost no mistakes.  What a good girl!

Kelley loves to be petted and given attention, she gently pats your knee with a paw to ask for more...a wonderful calm dog that deserves to snuggle and snooze with lots of love in her golden years. 
Kelly is loved by a wonderful older woman and her extended family...

Mini Pearl
Shiba Inu X
Female/spayed/shots current
App. 13" tall 15 lbs
App.1- 2 years old

Mini is a sweet mischievous girl with an infectious happy spirit.  She loves her toys and really needs another dog to play with.  Mini loves big dogs but really doesn't care what size they are.  She has gotten every dog in my house to play and is never happier than when she is lying on the floor wrestling with a doggy friend or chasing around and playing tug-of-war.  Mini is very shy with people when she first meets them but once she gets to know you she comes running up to get her share of the attention.  She loves to run in the yard, play fetch, and get belly rubs.  Mini is just learning to come for treats.  She is still such a puppy that she likes to find things to chew on (can we say puppy proofing?) and she is still working on housetraining.  Mini has had some crate training but would probably do best with someone who had some time at home to work with her.  If you are looking for a joyous spirit to share your life and are willing to do a little work on the basics, Mini Pearl will be an incredible addition to your life.
Mini has a wonderful home, who cannot believe how special she is:-)

Now can you believe this, I was bought over the internet from "some" breeder in Nebraska (and boy was I expensive) and flown to the owners had me for a week, and decided their 2 year old toddler was too rough with me...(I really fail to understand people) I weigh 1 lb (yes 1 lb)..when I grow up, maybe I will be 3 lbs...maybe I will get really big and hit 4 lbs...
I am adorable, so very tiny, but have a big spirit, I love to romp with the "big dogs" well anything is big to have to watch where you walk, and be careful...I just a tiny tiny foster Mom held her breath while I got spayed (cause she won't adopt me, unless I was) and I pulled through just great...I will need more puppy shots, and rabies when older...but I am ready now to go to an ADULT only home, and sorry not to a home with elderly people, I am too tiny, and one step I could get hurt..
Paris has a wonderful home, in Vancouver, B.C. with a knowledgeable Chi person, who will spoil this little girl terribly...

Are you looking for something special: meet Isabella "aka The Diva".  Isabella is a very friendly, loving little gal, she thrives on attention and will stand on her hind legs and wave her front feet.  This little gal has the attitude of a big movie star and struts her stuff every chance she gets.  In true Diva style, she likes to be the center of attention.  She has done well with the foster family dogs and didn't bother the cats.  She is working on housetraining and leash manners.  Hs passed the food test and is good about giving her chewies up (however she does get a little cranky when a fellow dog walks by her treats)
Within hours of being in foster care, she was giving lots of kisses...this girl would do fine in a home with older children..
Isabella, is now living in Oregon with another Pom, and a couple who adore her..
