Successful Other Small Breed Adoptions

App. 4 years old

Smart, adventurous, and fiercely loyal, Killian is happiest when hiking in the woods or curled up on a favorite lap. He is a Pomeranian who likes to go places. He is fine with other dogs but is primarily people-oriented. His ideal home would be with mature individuals who would be with him for much of the day, take him on frequent outings and walks, and let him snuggle on the bed with them at night.

Killian came to Furbaby Rescue as a foster who had been surrendered in a grocery store parking lot by a backyard breeder. He is four years old, and he is now house and leash trained, microchipped, and up-to-date on his shots. Killian is such a sweet dog that his foster family would love to keep him, but they realize he needs more individualized attention than they can give him. He will be a terrific addition to the right home.

Now being adored in his new home, residing in Seattle, WA

I am a sweet shy lil girl.  My whole being lights up, when I see the leash or halter, I adore walks.  Even though I am little, I can walk for miles, I LOVE it.  

I seem to prefer women over men, maybe because I have only lived with women, but give me time, you never know how I can blossom.

In my short lil life, I have already had 3 litters of pups, a baby having babies (sigh) but that life is behind me now, and it is my turn to be adored.  

I also do not tolerate lil children, with my shyness they move too fast, so I need a home who is only adults, and I bet I will eventually show you, how adorable I am.  I am crate trained, and happily sleep in my crate at night.

I also am not fond of being left alone, I can cry sometimes, I am not destructive, just like having my people there, so I am not well suited for apartment or condo life.  I have lived with other dogs, and cats (I just ignored those hissy things)....

I am also housetrained, and enjoy car rides.

Cocker Spaniel
Male/neutered/shots current
2 years old

Buffy has cute freckles on his nose, and wiggles his whole body when you come home.  He was raised by a woman in her 90's and was never socialized or formally trained.  When his owner passed away at the age of 96, Buffy's world was turned upside down.  The woman's family promised her they would take care of him once she passed, but then told his dog walker they were going to euthanize him because he had "served his purpose".  For two years he made his lady laugh and kept her company, but her family didn't want to bother finding her beloved dog a home.

Buffy is housetrained and well mannered in the home.  He loves to cuddle with his person, he is a true lapdog.  He is content to watch TV and prefers that you leave it on when you leave:-)  He has not been crated before, but is learning to sleep on a blanket next to the bed.  He was never allowed in his previous home in the bedroom, so he understands "off" when he is told.  He also knows sit and down.  He is being trained to wait at the door and come.

Since Buffy was never socialized with a lot of people or other dogs, he is learning new things.  He doesn't like to be approached.  He wants to approach you.  We have strangers feed him treats and offer calming signals (lowering their body, and turning your face away from him) so he becomes more outgoing.  Buffy barks when surprised, but reacts well to a firm "no bark".  He also has had no exposure to men, so the the foster Dad is hand feeding him.  He has learned to sit next to the foster Dad on the couch and take walks with him.  Once Buffy decides you're okay, you're his friend for life.

Buffy is a dog that will need at least a week to adjust to his new home.  Once he settles, he will start showing his silly side.  He loves to gently fetch his toys.  He loves walks and that is the best way to bond with him.  He walks politely on a leash.

Buffy is now residing in Mount Vernon, WA

Monty (nka Mozzeralla)
Male/neutered/shots current
3 years old
10 lbs

Monty is a busy young doggie.  He is a happy lil Maltese, he has soft, silky white coat with sparkling dark eyes who charms all he meets, especially when he does the "bichon wave or "spins the prayer wheel" with his front paws.

He seems to like all people, as he loves to let them pet him.  He is wonderful in the car but prefers to be close to you rather then sit in the back seat.  He loves to go for walks, and has a lot of stamina for such a small boy.  He can walk briskly for miles.  He likes to be held and is crazy about squeeky toys.  He is fine with other dogs, will play with those that want to and ignore the ones who don't.  He has been crated, but prefers to sleep with his people.  He also has lived with larger dogs, and is fine with them as well.

He is a delight.

Male/neutered/shots current
App. 4 years old

Ozzie is a character!  Found as a stray, he was a bit disheveled and dirty and looking all about for his family when he came into rescue. Ozzie's looking and feeling much better now: He's a busy little boy when he's bouncing happily about inspecting the world.  However, he does settle and nap contentedly,  curled up by himself or with his person on the couch. He currently spends his nights snoozing at the foot of the bed, but could be encouraged to sleep where desired. In his first few days, he crated himself when he felt a little intimated by his new digs and dogs, but has quickly become quiet at home. 

He's a friendly little boy who makes friends quickly with people and other dogs. And.... Ozzie is the number one best face-washer in the UNIVERSE! Of course, he's been getting lots of practice because of the fact that he's so darn cute, he gets scooped up and loved by every person he meets. (He has started to feel required to denounce the folks on the wrong side of the fence, but I strongly suspect an influence by foster-sister "Missy-guard-the-fort" is playing a role there.)  He loves a good walk on his leash and can march all about quite happily.  He may be small, but he's really a sturdy little trooper. Car rides do make Ozzie nervous and until that's sorted out, he's a bit safer crated rather than in the lap or underfoot of the driver.  

Ozzie could use a refresher dog obedience class: when asked to come, he often turns off his hearing aid, and he doesn't feel required to spend all of his time at ground level when tables are both gratifyingly "up" and might still contain treats. He has been caught snitching dinner. He's a clever little cutie, and often so incredibly adorable misbehaving that you might be tempted just to sweep him up and hug him until he squeaks ... which may be exactly why his discipline is lax.  (I'd pay money just for the fun of taking Mr. Adorable to classes myself... No hardship there!) He did show a need to mark territory when he arrived, so a belly band for a bit is recommended.  Other than that is the news that he did try to nip the groomer after she persisted in working with his feet: like many dogs, he seems to hate having his feet handled, but his reaction was worth noting.  He was good with every other aspect of his "beauty-shop" experience, and soon all the mats and debris from his days being lost were gone. 

I think a more experienced dog owner would be better for Ozzie, certainly in the short run.  He would do well with buddies or as an only dog, but might be happier in that case with a family not gone for long hours.  What is clear is that someone looking for a small companion and having just that one extra helping of time and experience .... is going to find in  Ozzie nothing less than a walking happy memory maker in a cute little package. Lucky days ahead for all.

Japanese Chin
Male/neutered/shots current
5 months old
6 lbs

He's sweet and gives big greetings.
 He loves long walks.
 He enjoys evenings (and days) on the couch.
He likes to play with balls.
He's very good for brushing and baths.

Petey can be a little escape artist, dashing for the open door, so care will be needed until he learns.  He does well in the car in a crate, but unhappy to sleep in one at night, so he stays in an xpen, as he is not reliable yet for housetraining.  He is doing exceptionally well though and has made great progress.  He knows the word "out" and which door to go to, and he has started barking to ask to go out.

He is a sweetheart.
 Petey will be required to be signed up for a positive reward based training class prior to adoption.

Petey has a great new home, residing in Arlington, WA

American Rat Terrier/Jack Russell Terrier
Female/spayed/shots current
18 months old
13 lbs/13" tall

Giselle (or Gizzie) is a sweet little cuddlier who loves to play especially with her doggie foster sisters. She is animated and loving to her person and gets along well with other dogs her size. Gizzie is a clown and will do anything to get you to play with her. Though she is energetic she is NOT hyper. She settles down well when playtime is over and loves to curl up under the covers for naps.

Gizzie lived with an elderly woman who could no longer care for her. She is a bit shy with strangers but warms up quickly and her silly puppy personality comes out. Gizzie was pee-pad trained by her first owner but is quickly learning to go outside. She did not get a lot of socializing in her first home so she is just learning to out into the big world. Car rides and pet stores and doggy parks are a whole new world for Gizzie. With her puppy eagerness and love of living this little girl will open a whole new world of love to the family lucky enough to claim her.

Gizzie is happily residing in Bellingham, WA

Chubbles (nka Buddy)
Male/neutered/shots current
10 months old (B.D. Nov.28/08)
10 lbs

Chub Chub was born Nov. 28/08.  We are told he is a Pom/Chi.  He weighs 10 lbs.  He is in excellent health and has a gorgeous smile:-)  This was a very scared boy when he came into foster care.  He would not come out of the crate for 2 days, unless he was alone in a room, where he would come out to eat and drink, only to slip back in the crate.

Today he is still unsure, but he is now a bouncy happy and playful boy.  Apparently he had no socialization with other people, only his immediate family.  He likes other dogs.  He tries to get the resident oldsters to play but no one has joined him yet.  He would do best having another dog to live with.  He followed the other foster dog around the first day taking cues from her as to what was safe, and where to go. 

He now likes to lie by my feet when I am sitting or run around the yard, when I am out there.  He sleeps by the bed at night.  He needs some work on house manners.  He does not know what a dog door is, and doesn't let you know when he needs to go out.  He will need a regular routine to establish good potty habits.

Chubbles likes to play fetch with balls (actually chases them, but not returning them so far) he loves squeaky toys.  He growls and gently mouths them in play.  He likes to chew on pigs ears and hoofs.  He does though need a fenced yard, or he may get scared and run off.  He is energetic and busy but will easily settle with the mood of his person.

Chubbles can be fearful of new people and new surroundings.  He loves car rides.  He is a sweet, endearing lil fellow, who once more socialized will be just a doll...he is already showing what a charmer he can be, and he is so cute:-)

A fenced yard is a requirement for this boy....

Buddy has great parents, residing in Renton, WA

Miniature Poodle
Male/neutered/shots current
7 years old

*sweet boy passed away 2016*

My name is Cooper, I'm a Miniature "Parti" Poodle, and quite handsome if I do say so myself.  My coat is soft and fluffy and I have the heart of an angel.  I want to live with a person or two who needs lots of love and attention.  Iím sweet and very affectionate and love to have my tummy rubbed. I love to go for walks and I behave well on my leash.  Iím obedient and play with toys and fetch balls.  I make people laugh and be happy even when theyíre feeling sad.  I like other dogs and people, but I do my best when itís quiet and Iím home with just my mom and dad.  I will be the best friend you ever had, if you just give me a chance.  I love my parents more than anyone on the planet and want to hang out with them as much as I can.  My biggest problem is that I donít like to stay home alone.  Iím good in the car and at other peopleís houses.  I just want to know that my parents are nearby and that they arenít going to leave me.  I like other dogs and kids, but I would be happiest if I could just live alone with my parents and maybe another lil dog would help.  Iíd be great company for someone who doesnít have to go to work.  In fact, if someone out there needs a friend, we could take care of each other and be really happy together.  Some people think I bark too much, but I only do that when Iím home alone and thatís just because I get lonely.  I do bark if someone comes over, or is in my yard Ė but you would expect any good watchdog to do that.  I love my current home, but my parents have to work all the time and they leave me home alone way too much  - that leaves me feeling lonesome and miserable, I just need to keep someone company.  I know I could make someone very happy if I could just get the chance.

Residing in Cottage Grove, Oregon, with two great parents, and lil girl doggie to play with.

Oh my goodness, these pictures do not do her justice, she is the cutest lil girl on 4 legs. Anyone who meets her, falls in love. She is such an animated lil imp, you just want to pick her up and love her to death, in which case, she will cover you with kisses.
Buttons can be found racing through the house, playing with balls, leaping onto your couch, cuddling in your lap, just enjoying life.  She would love to have a friend to play with, if not, she will be your constant companion.  She figured out the dog door, on the first day, and is pretty darn good with housemanners.  
She is a living/breathing doll...

Hey everyone! Check me out, I am Drake. A super cool 16 month old neutered male Chihuahua who loves everyone and everything. I am very easy to get along with, I enjoy other dogs (big and little) cats, strangers, belly rubs, snuggles, and some major lap time.

The folks at the Whatcom Humane Society originally took me in. The shelter vet soon realized I was in bad shape! I have bum knees, its called Luxating Patella's a common genetic problem in my breed. The shelter didn't have the resources to help me . . . but the great folks at Mountain Veterinary Hospital donated their time and services to save me. Wow! Dr. Stone and the staff have been taking great care of me. They performed surgery on both my knees and helped me recover. They are angels to animals like me - and really nice people too!

Sure, I might have some arthritis in those knees as I get older, but I should be able to lead a normal, pain free life.

So If you are looking for a gentle, quiet, snuggle buddy... look no further.

Wonderful new home in Bellingham, WA
