Successful Other Small Breed Adoptions

Schnauzer/Maltese (Mauzer)
Female/spayed/shots current
3 years old
14 lbs

Oh look at me, I just got groomed for Halloween:-)


The heck with fancy needs and names. I just want the simple basics in life.  I was bred to be a designer dog - a Mauzer as a I recall. That sounds too close to being a cat .... a mouser,.  I just want to be someone's special dog. 

I had a rough start in life which my foster mom will share with the right adopter.  I also had one very kind and loving owner since my first years but once again, the lousy economy took that woman's home and she had to do the right thing and not make me suffer with her. I hope if my one good owner is reading this that she knows I thank her for the good times we had together. 

So the time has come to search out that special person who can keep me forever this time. I'm a little shy at first but watch out once I get to know you. I'll do the happy dance every time you come home. I'll stay close to you on the couch keeping your feet warm...or your lap. I can live with other dogs or I can be content being a spoiled rotten only child. Nothing wrong with that either. 

My foster mom reports that I am quiet, well behaved and a treasure.  Hmmmm.....a that like a bone buried in the back yard? I wonder..... 

Two other things - Mom says I'm doing really well using the doggie door at her house but my new forever person needs to understand that if you don't have a doggie door, you will need to treat me as if I could still make a mistake in the house. Part of that is typical of going to a new home and part of that, for me, is due to the beginning part of my life which will be explained. It IS something that I can learn because I'm a bright little button but I need your patience and assistance. 

Last, but not least, I need to be on a grain free diet because I tend to be an allergy dog.  That's not as difficult as it sounds and it really saves on vet bills in the long run. 

Do you think you could love me simply because I'm adorable, loving, talented, easy to get along with and because I will give all my love back to you? May we forget about the fancy designer dog label and just love each other for what we are? Of course, if you want to buy me a nice warm designer label doggie coat for this upcoming winter, I'd accept that.  :-)  I'm just an easy going little, lovable dog.

With great sadness, Dolce passed to the bridge
Bichon Frise
Male/neutered/shots current
8 years old

Dolce is a very special dog but because he's timid of new people and needs a lot of love, patience, reassurance and understanding he has been overlooked. He's a rescue who's discovering how wonderful it is to have strangers pet him but he's not open to people just reaching out and touching him. He has come along way over a short period of time since his foster family is working with him and will continue to improve. He needs an owner who will take the time to work on his rehabilitation every day and that will put his best interest in mind first. He is a gentle soul who was mistreated, or just plain ignored and therefore is re-learning how to be 'man's best friend.

He found a wonderful home residing on Whidbey Island

Hi Ya'll!  I'm Hannah.  I am an ADORABLE, lil Miss...  a super sweet and loving Chihuahua.  Ya, Ya.. so I am a  bit on the chubby side,  but I hope my new home will keep me on healthy eating plan-  I want to be fit and trim. Originally from the Skagit Puppy Mill situation,  I am looking for my forever home.

Here is what I am looking for:  a quiet home with another lovely lady to spend my time.  I am bonded to female humans,  men are kind of scary.  I am not nippy or growly  at them, but I am nervous and timid with men.  A home where my primary caregiver is female is my ideal home.  I am potty trained, crate trained, get along well with other dogs (big and small) and even like cats!

I LOVE riding in the car and taking walkies.  I am happy to sleep in my own bed or yours.  I have a silly habit of  acquiring objects around the house... a sock here or there, my toys etc. I don't rip them up or destroy them, but I just like to "have" them... but I am not sassy about it, I do not guard them... "Getting" them is all the FUN!

I am in good health, besides the chub!

OK - I confess I have a really great foster home but it's not my forever home. I REALLY WANT TO BE WANTED and wanted forever. I've done my work to deserve a great home. I used to be shy but I've learned to trust and come out of my shell. I like men so if you have a husband, father, boyfriend or if you're just a guy, I'd be a happy little doggie in that kind of home. I like women, too.  Heh, heh, heh! I'll just get along with anyone. 

I'm a lovable little soul and I want to be your very best friend, sharing car rides, or fast walks, slow walks, watching TV or whatever makes you happy. I don't chase cats and I walk well on a leash. I'm perfect........well, almost perfect. I mean no one is TOTALLY perfect but I'm as close as it gets. 

Would you just take time to apply for me, ask some questions and then come meet me? I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be able to leave without me.

Bitsy and Molly
Bichon Frise
Females/spayed/shots current
5 years old

We are the Bichon sisters, and our names are Molly and Bitsy.  I’m the bigger one and Bitsy is the little one.  We have lived together all of our young years.  We just turned 5.

We don’t have a sad story to share about how awful our lives were or how ill we have been.  We have the opposite kind of story to tell you.  We have only known love, respect, and frankly a little pampering.  We’ve always had good food, a warm bed, top drawer grooming and medical attention and we have been loved very much by our mom and dad.

That’s where our story begins.  Our dad became unable to care for himself and mom had to care for him so we learned all about how to nurse a human.  Then mom became ill and on Friday she had to be moved into a special place to care for people who have Alzheimer’s disease. 

This is Sunday and we aren’t with them any longer.  Fortunately we got to move into a nice foster home which is very full of dogs right now but they made room for us.  Gosh are we ever grateful.

But we need to find a new home pretty quickly.

Here’s the thing about us.  We are pretty much perfect.  You look at our pictures and that sweetness and love that you see in our eyes and silly smiles, is who we are.  We love everyone, we are quiet car riders, we follow directions, we love to jump  up on you and be petted.  Bitsy is a little more timid than I am.  As I’m writing this with our foster mom, Bitsy is practicing going up and down a spiral staircase with open risers.  Yikes…I’m next to try, I suppose. 

We would like a home where we will be loved and enjoyed.  It would be great if we could have a back yard to run and play in but if you want to take us out to walk us, I suppose that might work.  We are mostly inseparable and all of the innocent joy we have known all of our lives would probably go away if we had to be separated.  We have already lost our dad, now our mom…we can’t lose one another.

Great new Dad for these precious girls, residing in Everett, WA

Beauty and No Beast 

I'm a dog who is in need of a fairy tale ending. I haven't had much of a fair shake in life up until now. It's not horrid, just a matter of sometimes life dishes out lemons and now I need someone to help me make lemonade. My foster mom can fill you in on the details.

I think I was named Beauty because of my gorgeous, flowing, auburn colored coat. I've tried to live up to that name by being a really good girl so people could say I was a beautifully behaved dog as well. My foster mom tells me I've lived up to that because I'm good on walks, I get along with other dogs, and I ride quietly in my crate on car rides. I know that being crated in the car is the only safe way for a doggie to travel so I'm doubly OK with that. 

Sometimes I can be just a bit shy with new people but I come around quickly. I love being with those who love me and I love them right back. I behave well if you have to go to work all day but as with any dog, I'd prefer to have someone home most of the time. It can get really lonely sometimes. 

I overheard my foster mom say that I am one of the best doggies ever, especially in the housebreaking department. And so far I have her confused as to why I don't bark. Heh, heh, heh - when it's really important or when I know I'm finally home for good, I may try out my voice. We'll see but I promise you, I'll make you very proud to be my owner. 

Beauty has a new loving Mom, residing in Surrey, B.C. Canada

YUP, "Good Golly Miss Molly" is my real name. What a mouthful but you'll realize I deserve a statement of such awe when you get to know me. Just look at my qualities!! 
Uses a doggie door 
Sociable with people and other dogs
Loves tummy rubs and to be held 
Will sleep in the crate at night but really prefers to share your bed 
Can be an only dog or have a doggie mate 
Has very soft wonderful fur (please understand how to groom me or be willing to learn) 
...and not that it really matters because I'm so wonderful but I am a purebred..a very special little girl. 
Please note that I might bark at times although my foster mom hasn't heard it yet so I must ask that only those persons who have a regular house with fenced yard apply. Sorry! 

Molly is now being spoiled in Lakewood, WA

Handsome Howie! 

Look into my eyes! 

Do you ever look into an animal's eyes and wonder who is looking back at you? Howie is one of those dogs, or at least we think so. You can almost see a human's face looking back at you. 

Howie's former owners really tried to keep him but when they lost their jobs, and then their house, there was no choice but to rehome Howie.  Thank goodness they did the right thing for Howie, as heartbreaking as it was. 

Howie is a sweetheart who loves to cuddle, quickly responds when called and is definitely housebroken. You couldn't find a better mannered dog than this boy. Because Howie loves his humans so deeply he can get a bit protective but this can easily be remedied with a little training on the human's part as to how to instill self confidence in the dog and let Howie know that he doesn't have to be in charge. He just needs to know he's safe and that his forever human will take watch over him. Security can make a good dog become an outstanding dog. 

This is one dog that we can honestly say, you won't be sorry for adopting Howie

And the family who adopted him, adore him, residing in Lake Tapps, WA

Akia comes with a very special request from a great little boy. The story is yet another one where in these difficult times a family couldn't afford to continue to care for their beloved dog. As difficult as it was to surrender their beloved dog, the little boy was very brave but he BEGGED us to pass along his only request. "Please don't change Akia's name", he said. I should think that will be a very easy request to honor since it came from such a special little boy. 

Akia likes kids but Furbaby Rescue still requests that a home be found either without children or at least much older children. Akia is crate trained, will sleep in the crate at night if you absolutely insist that she not share your bed. She's housetrained, loves to cuddle, and needs someone who will stay on top of the grooming and flea treatment. Akia is very allergic to fleas but due to her sweet disposition it should be easy to keep her clean and free of fleas. 

We're hoping that Akia gets adopted soon and that whomever becomes her new forever human will be able to have us send a message to the little boy with a promise that Akia will always have that name.

Can you help ease the pain that a little boy feels for surrendering his dog through no fault of his own and assure him that Akia will be loved as much as he did?

Tibetan Terrier
Male/neutered/shots current
3 years old
28 lbs

At first glance, Cooper appears to be a great big floppy cuter than anything, dog.  At second glance, you look at his big square head and giant hands and you realize you are in the presence of a pretty rare breed.  He is a Tibetan Terrier.  One of our foster moms secretly wishes she could call him her own but she knows he needs his own home so he is available!!

He is adorable.  He is everything anyone could love in a Lhasa, Terrier, or an Old English Sheep dog, all bundled into a manageable sized dog.

He is a three year old male who was discovered lying next to his owner three days after she had passed away.  A helpful neighbor discovered the two of them.  Unfortunately Cooper was taken to a shelter but the staff there knew that he needed to get right to Furbaby Rescue before he suffered any more loneliness and abandonment.

Cooper is an absolute dear.  He is friendly, he gets along with everyone, doesn’t chase cats at least from our experience, he is housebroken even though for three days he had to “go” in the house.  He wants to be with you, love you, snuggle with you, walk with you, help you with everything.

If you are lonely and are wishing for a very best friend, and have the physical ability to manage a bigger floppy dog, then you need to meet this guy.   He weighed in at 27.2 pounds so while he’s not huge, he is substantially larger than a typical Lhasa.   It is not often that a Tibetan Terrier comes into our rescue.  We are all in awe of this gorgeous dog who is related to the Lhasa but is just so much different.

He’s like a great big stuffed dog that little children long to hug closely but he’s real!  We do not know how he would be with younger children and assume that he should be in a home with older dog savvy children just because of his breed.  He will need a fenced yard and would benefit from living with someone who likes (or needs!) to walk.  He is great in the car, wonderful in every room of your house, your yard, in your bed, and on your lap…but watch your knitting project because he will muss that up if you aren’t prepared for the initial landing!  

Great home for this boy, residing in Bothell, WA

Hi Ya'll. I'm Polly, and I am very happy to meet you!.  I have had a pretty horrible life so far, and it makes me a bit uneasy to talk about it,  but I'll try.  I spent my life in a crate, yes... a crate. I was covered in my own feces and was thin and emaciated. I was removed from there by animal control,  I thank them every day for saving my life.

 I have not known a true family,  but now that I am in a foster home I know what love is.  Love is sweet and kind.  Love is a quiet home with a warm bed. Love is food when ever I want it and never going hungry. Love is having a clean coat, not full of mats. Love is being told I am pretty.  Love is walkies outside, and grass in my toes. Love is sunshine on my face.

I am good with other dogs and cats.  I like meeting people, and treats help me like them more!  Furbaby says I deserve to have a good life now,  like other dogs have.  I hope that is with you.

Polly is happily residing in Nanoose Bay, B.C. Canada
