Trixy 12/08/14

Trixy 12/08/14

Pretty Trixy is a beautiful parti-colored cocker, 25 pounds and probably 8-9 years old. (She has an undocked tail, too – very pretty.) We guess that she was making puppies before ending up in the shelter and she took a while to adjust to house life; she still needs to be reminded when it’s time to go out – particularly in bad weather or in the dark. Perhaps she’s afraid she will be left outside? She gets along fine with the other dogs in her foster home though mostly ignores them. Being near her person is much more important! We don’t know her attitude toward cats but don’t see a reason for concern. She has mild “dry eye” for which she needs daily drops, otherwise she is a healthy girl. Trixy loves to go walking and is good on a leash, she has no mobility limitations and likes to play ball. She is a happy, energetic and loving girl who gives kisses and is delighted to sit on your lap. She’s ready to adopt her own person! Trixy is in foster care in Clinton (south Whidbey Island).

Minnie 07/28/14

Minnie 07/28/14

Minnie dox HawkDog-ODHUpdateMinnie is a beautiful 12-pound dachshund who is only 10 years old. While still in the shelter she had an aggressive mammary cancer completely removed. One of Minnie’s eyes is shrunken and not visual but that doesn’t stop Minnie from doing anything! She LOVES walks and playing with toys. Most of all Minnie loves people and cuddling. Minnie has been living in a foster home with multiple dogs and it’s become apparent that she would prefer a home where she is an only dog. Minnie is very much a dachshund; she’s one that would like to “hunt” small prey-which would include cats – and she should not go to a home with young children. She is crate-trained and can stay home alone for a work day, given a potty break every 6 hours or so or a dog-door. Like all dachshunds because of their physique, care should be taken with stairs and she should not be allowed to jump from furniture or out of cars, etc. Minnie is a wonderful dog who deserves a home where she can be the center of attention.

Not all dogs do well in a pack and we can respect that. Someone will be extremely lucky to add Minnie to their family; she will reward them with her love and devotion. Minnie is in foster care in Redmond.

Two fluffy little tibetan spaniels, Mikey and Stella are 11 years old. They’ve lived together for the past 6 years. Stella has lived with kids and enjoyed them; however, Mikey would prefer an adult-only home. Mikey loves playing with squeaky toys and enjoys being petted.

Opa 12/21/14

Dear Santa,

I know that you receive many requests for the holidays and that you are very, very busy right now organizing the delivery of toys to children all around the world. I am not writing to ask for special toys or yummy treats this holiday. I get plenty of those at the shelter where all the staff and volunteers take really great care of me. My only wish is to meet my forever family, a family who will cherish and love me forever and provide me with a warm, comfy place to rest. My name is Opa. The vet estimates that I’m at least 12 years old. I only weigh 24.22 lbs but I’m much too skinny. I was found as a stray. No one knows for sure, but they tell me I could be a Decker Rat Terrier or a mix? I”m looking for a hospice or final respite home, I’m very arthritic and appreciative of daily medications to help I really am a VERY good boy so please, Santa, could you help me find my new forever family? If so, tell them to come find me at the Auburn Valley Humane Society.

Easy 12/20/14

Easy 12/20/14

Easy is a ~12 year old large mixed breed (Akita or pit bull mix?). He weighs close to 70 pounds, though he is quite underweight. Easy is an easy-going guy. Though not physically what he used to be in his younger years, Easy still has that wonderful canine spark that keeps him cheery and spunky every day. He walks very well on a leash, appears to be OK with other dogs, and has been friendly with every one he has met (young and old). He is perfectly comfortable being handled, and he very much enjoys being around people! Easy still has a big bark that he likes to show off sometimes, though it is apparent that Easy is completely deaf. Easy has some severe dental issues with ground down and missing teeth, as well as a large gingival mass over his upper left canine tooth area. However, he has no trouble gobbling down wet food (or dry food that has been moistened)!
Easy seems mostly house trained and he does well with being confined in a kennel. He actually is able to get in some quality naps at the shelter with his inability to hear all the barking! Easy does need a good grooming. With a little clean up, and some stress-free digs, Easy should be a happy and easy companion!

ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

Easy is posted for Olympic Peninsula Humane Society in Pt. Angeles, justine@ophumanesociety.org or 360/457-8206.

Harrison 12/19/14 *Adopted* 12/21/14

Mr. Harry Harrison is an easy-going fellow who likes his treats, taking naps, and hanging out with his friends. He gets along with other little dogs and cats too. A small white terrier about 9 years old, Harrison is house trained and has terrific house manners. His low maintenance lifestyle would lend well to any family willing to open their home to this terrific terrier. He also just had a dental cleaning and has pearly whites! Harrison arrived at the shelter extremely obese, having a hard time getting around. However, Harrison has committed himself to a weight loss program and is working on shedding some pounds for the new year. His work-outs include slow progression with stairs, easy cardio walks, and wagging his little puff-ball tail to burn extra calories. If you would like to help him with this endeavor and become his personal trainer, long-time companion and best friend, please go to the PAWS shelter in Lynnwood and visit!

Murphy 12/19/14

Murphy 12/19/14

Mr. Murphy was someone’s darling at some point in his life. He was spotted running on a local highway for 3 days before he went up to a rural house asking to be let in. Poor boy, he was a mess and had to be shaved down to remove all the mat s. He’s comfortable being groomed so must have had some care in the past. He’s very easy with other dogs but might chase a kitty if allowed – it’s a good ego boost! Murph loves the car and would be a great traveling companion or walking buddy. He’s pretty self sufficient and is easy company to have around. At least 8 years old, HE considers himself a young’un and is ready to go anytime, anywhere. Murphy is a delightful little dog and will quickly become a happy addition to the family! Murphy is a Lhasa Apso mix who weighs 12 pounds.

ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

Murphy is posted for SPOT, http://savingpetsoneatatime.org/dog-adoption-online-form_280.html, and is in Skagit County.

Petunia 12/17/14

Petunia 12/17/14

Nia (aka Petunia) is a lovely mixed breed girl who weighs about 50 pounds. A vet has estimated her to be about 8 years old. Nia is good with cats and kids. Dogs should be properly introduced to Nia; if they do not have good manners, she will respond sternly. Nia prefers a home where someone is home often. She loves to go for walks and she can do stairs but she is not a good jumper. Life was not kind to Nia before she came into rescue. She has thrived in her foster home and is now ready to become someone’s devoted companion. We think someone would be quite lucky to share every day with a sweet girl like Nia! You can view more photos of Nia here: http://www.uselessbaysanctuary.org/petunia.html.

Luigi 12/15/14 *Adopted* 12/18/14

If you have been looking for a sweet little sidekick, then you need to meet Luigi! Luigi is a very handsome chocolate / dapple dachshund, and is just as sweet as can be! At 9 years old, this guy is still pretty spry. He loves walking with shelter volunteers, and would love a home that can offer him lots of love. Luigi has lived with dogs but may prefer companions that are similar to his size and temperament. He is pretty easygoing and doesn’t seem to care for big and bouncy pups. He has also lived with cats, and does occasionally like to play chase with them. Luigi would likely do well with kids that are old enough to handle him gently and respectfully. If this sounds like the buddy you have been looking for, be sure to meet Luigi!

ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

Luigi is posted for the Homeward Pet Adoption Center in Woodinville, 425/488-4444 or info@homewardpet.org.

Luna 12/14/14

Luna 12/14/14

Little Luna had been the faithful pet of a senior lady living in a retirement home. Her passing left little Luna without a place to go. A 10-year-old Chihuahua weighing 10-12 pounds, she is such a delightful little girl, quiet and calm. Luna was a bit unsure of what had happened in her life but she has adapted well to her foster home and does well with men, woman and other dogs. She has lovely house manners and enjoys car rides. Luna is a healthy, content and cuddly lady. She would love to live with a person of the same demeanor!

Blanca 12/14/14

Blanca 12/14/14

Blanca is an absolutely lovely older American Bulldog. This girl is all that and a pretty face! She has a history of being great with other dogs of all sizes, cats, and kids. She has lived with large dogs, chihuahuas, cats, kids, adults and even rambunctious puppies who she just let nibble on her ears and use her body as a jungle gym. She has amazing house manners and is potty trained! Blanca is a little arthritic and likes to walk at a slower pace. At one point in her life she was involved in an accident and had her leg repaired. When she came to the other shelter the pins from that old surgery were coming through the skin and she then had a reparative surgery to remove the pins and fix that issue. Blanca is healed from that but will greatly benefit from a life long joint supplement and a warm home. We cannot say enough about this quiet and gentle girl. Whoever adopts her will be getting a gift for sure!

Blanca is posted for Camano Animal Shelter on Camano Island, 360-387-1902.

He has limited vision now due to cataracts and ulcers, and is hard of hearing. Sonny is looking for a home to give him plenty of love and attention – he is a very sweet and handsome boy. He gets along with polite dogs and loves people.

Halbert 12/11/14

Halbert 12/11/14

Halbert the Wonder Dog aka “Hal” is a 75-pound German Shepherd/Boxer mix who is guessed to be about 12 years old. He is described as “the happiest dog EVER! ” Halbert would much rather take a walk to the hardware store than go on a hike, especially because he gets treats at the hardware store and everyone pets him. He also loves meeting other dogs out on walks and has been around big and small dogs – small dogs LOVE him. Hal should go to a home with minimal stairs and cat-free. He loves to hang out on the couch with his people and get a good belly rub before curling up for a nap. He has excellent house manners and is left free in the house when alone, though he does sometimes retreat to his dog cave (aka crate) when he needs some peace and quiet away from his overly exuberant foster sister. Hal is in a foster home for Washington German Shepherd Rescue.

Prita 12/10/14 *Adopted 12/21/14

Prita is described as “A 9-year-old dog in a 2-year-old’s body!” She is a youthful and active girl of 66 pounds. Prita lives in a home with many other foster dogs and does fine with them but would prefer to have fewer dogs to share attention with. She loves going for car rides and enjoys her walks. Prita soaks up any affection she can get and loves being brushed. According to her foster mom, Prita is “extra intelligent” and therefore needs someone who will not allow her to outsmart them! Before coming to rescue she was the beloved companion to a man who developed Parkinson’s. Prita would love to find another person or family to devote the rest of her life to. She currently lives in Tacoma in a Rebecca’s Rainbow foster home.

ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

Trigger 12/08/14

Trigger 12/08/14

Trigger is a beautiful 80 pound, neutered male black lab. He is 12 years old but don’t let his age fool you! He has plenty of energy and enjoys going for walks, playing fetch, exploring outside and being around people. He knows several commands and is eager to please. He settles down very well in the house and likes to snuggle up on a couch for a nap. He is crate trained as well and does fine while his foster mom is away all day at work. He gets along with other dogs and does well with the two female dogs he is living with but he plays pretty rough making him difficult for some dogs to be around. He would do best in a house without other male dogs and no cats. He needs a dog-savvy owner who will give him the exercise he needs and is willing to work with him on some manners. He walks well on a leash but if he sees something interesting, the 80 pounds can be challenging! He is on thyroid medication but readily takes his meds. He does appear to have a food allergy and will need to be on a high quality food. If you are looking for a loyal companion, Trigger would love to be your forever friend.

This happy girl gets along well with other polite dogs and enjoys getting out there to socialize. She has been enjoying the winter weather and loves the snow, her favorite activity is getting lots of cuddles after a chilly walk.

Dudley 11/30/14

Dudley 11/30/14

Dudley came to Becky’s Best Buddies Rescue as a Sheriff’s impound. He is a senior Basset Hound mix. Poor Dudley was very skinny and suffering from exposure. He is now 42 pounds, neutered and vaccinated. Dudley is super friendly with everyone, but he is not as fond of other male dogs. He is OK with cats and has been good with kind children. Dudley is a great eater! He hasn’t spent prolonged time in the house, so he may need some work with potty training. While in rescue he’s not had any issues with “accidents” in the house. Because he never lived in a home before coming to rescue, he cannot yet be left alone for a work day, he will need someone who can work with him on living indoors. Dudley does need a fenced yard, as he will follow his NOSE! He enjoys a brisk walk every day but too many stairs would be hard on him because of his long body (like a basset). Like many senior dogs, Dudley’s vision is diminished in the dark but he still hears well, and comes running to a whistle! Giving a home to a dog like Dudley can be one of the most rewarding experiences you can have.

He is waiting for his new home while in the care of Becky’s Best Buddies in Chewelah.

Sugar 11/18/14

Sugar 11/18/14

Sugar is a 9-year-old large (approx 65-70 pound) Lab mix and yes, she’s as sweet as her name. Not so much with cats and chickens, that’s where the spice to this girl comes out. Sugar is in need of a foster or adoptive home; she is dog-selective in that she is a bossy female but will get along with some dogs. Preferably male and laid back. This girl needs to get out of the kennel and into a home, she is fully potty trained, well mannered, beautiful and happy! Sugar does have minor hip issues and the cold is getting to be uncomfortable for her.

ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

Sugar is posted for HAVA in the Raymond/Westport area. Please fill out an application at https://secure.jotform.us/form/30278461279157 if you’d like to meet Sugar or call HAVA at 360-942-4716.

KD 11/06/14

KD is a very affectionate, polite old soul, about 11 years. She is eager to greet you and be by your side and she is very loyal to those she likes. KD is an independent girl who would love a calm home without other dogs or children. She does not make friends with other pets, so she would do best with just your love. She does know some commands and she is well behaved in the presence of her human. KD is content with a comfy bed to herself, so she can rest up for outings. She loves long walks!! She walks well on lead and is happy with any outing, car rides included. KD is also presumed housebroken. She does have some minor medical issues including mild arthritis which does not seem to bother her. She also has a mass in her mouth which needs monitoring. She has been at the shelter since August and is getting very stressed in the kennels. This sweet girl needs a calm and comfy forever home.

Pooky & Duke 11/05/14

Pooky & Duke 11/05/14

Pooky and Duke are best friends that arrived at the Seattle Animal Shelter together. They have been together almost 11 years – ever since they were pups – and they really need a home together. The best home for them will be adults only and have some prior dog experience. A home that’s moderately active to calm would be a good fit. They are both house trained, so no worries there. Both dogs are good with some other dogs (they are GREAT with each other!) and cats, too, with supervision. They are currently living in a condo and do just fine there.

Pooky is an 11-year-old female Husky mix. She’s a laid back lady – gentle, easy-going and calm. She likes going on walks on Alki Beach and is so well-mannered that all the dogs, kids, bikes and even skateboarders at the beach don’t phase her at all. Pooky still has good energy, but when she gets tired she likes to take a rest and get lots of pets and admiration from folks passing by.  And in case you didn’t notice – she’s absolutely beautiful!!  Pooky has one blue eye and one brown eye, so she’s extra special. She likes having her thick coat groomed so she can keep looking her best. She is probably just a tad overweight, so cutting down on the snacks, and taking a few more walks may be in order. Pooky knows how to ‘sit’ when asked, and she’d be happy to have her new person teach her more!

Duke is an 11 year old, neutered male, Weimaraner/Lab mix. He has a lot of energy and spunk for a fellow his age. He likes to go to Alki Beach with Pooky and his foster parents and keep an eye out for squirrels. Duke enjoys meeting all the new humans and hearing how handsome he is. He’s a playful guy, and balls are his favorite toy. He already knows ‘sit’ and he’s very interested in treats; he’d be glad to learn more commands if treats are involved! Duke is friendly and outgoing, and an overall great pooch.

ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

These wonderful dogs qualify for the Senior Citizen Discount program. Duke and Pooky (SAS ID #1420952-1 & 2) would be honored if you would consider welcoming them into your home. They are currently being adored in a Seattle Animal Shelter (SAS) foster home.If you would like to meet them, you must submit a Dog Adoption Application to SAS. Download the application at http://www.seattle.gov/animalshelter/forms.htm and follow the instructions for submitting via email or fax. Or you may pick up an application at SAS located at 2061 15th Ave W, Seattle. If you have general questions about this dog, you may call SAS’s Animal Care Staff at (206) 386-4294.

Chance 11/06/14

Chance 11/05/14

Hi there! I’m Chance, an adorable (seriously — just look at my pics!) 8-year-old Chow Chow mix.  I hope these pictures convey what a sweet, lovable guy I am and that I’m ready to find my forever family. During my stay with my foster parents it’s been revealed that I have Cushing’s disease, which means l’ll require ongoing medical care — my foster parents can tell you what this entails. I’m a pretty low-key guy – a couple trips to the local fire hydrant is just about all the exercise I need. I love earning yummy treats during training. My foster parents say I at the end of my basic training course I aced both AKC’s Canine Good Citizen and Canine Good Citizen Advanced tests. I also love being with people! I wonder what “Velcro” means? I hear that word a lot when my name is mentioned. Because of my size (77 lbs) and the occasional exuberance that I exhibit when I think you have a tasty treat, any children in my new home should be at least 10 years old and dog-savvy. I may do okay with other dogs or felines in my new home. Give me a chance – I promise you’ll be glad you did!

Spud 11/04/14

Spud is an 18-pound Peek-a-Poo (a pekingese/poodle mix) who is 13-14 years old. This darling guy has lived with other dogs and cats and has helped raise his family’s children. (He does not like to be pulled upon so he’d most likely do best in a home with older kids). Spud stays alone for a work day without needing a potty break. However, his owners feel that Spud is lonely, he’s spending too much time alone now and they hope to find a home where he has more companionship. Spud is a sweet dog who loves to be around his people, he’d like to sit with you and watch TV. He enjoys his walks, reportedly does well on a leash and can still do stairs. If you or someone you know is looking for a new companion, Spud’s your guy! He is posted for his owner in Auburn.

Annie 10/31/14

Annie is one of our favorite kinds of dogs: a black lab mix. She weighs 65 pounds and, while her true age is unknown, her owner guesses Annie is around 14 years old. She recently met a dog with a potential adopter and the 2 of them did not “click”; slow introductions are necessary for Annie. In the past she has been good with other dogs but has never been observed around cats. Because of her age, a home with gentle children only is preferred. According to Annie’s long-time owner, she has “a little arthritis” but she can do still do stairs. Annie does well on leash and enjoys short walks. She can stay alone for a work day without needing a potty break which is not the “norm” for dogs at this age. Lovely Annie is said to be a wonderful companion who is calm but friendly and enjoys petting. She is posted for her owner in Maple Valley, WA.

Duke 10/26/14

Duke 10/26/14

Duke 10/26/14  *Adopted* 12/18/14

Duke is a young senior chocolate Lab who has been at the Longview shelter for several months. He is a very friendly dog who would do best in a home without children under the age of 10 years, as he could get excited and knock a child down in a playful frenzy. He has not been tested with other dogs or cats yet, but staff would be happy to do so if you think he might be a good fit into your family.

Duke does bark a lot and will need to be in a home with a large yard for him to run around and play in, preferably a country home, outside of city limits. He can NOT go into an apartment or any other type of rental. He is a sweetheart, gentle and well mannered.

ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

If interested in Duke, please call the Humane Society of Cowlitz County (in Longview) at 866-310-9665 and ask to speak with a staff member.

Noel and Zeus 10/23/14

Noel and Zeus 10/23/14

10 year old Noel and 9 year old Zeus are mother and son. Noel weighs 30 pounds, Zeus weighs 47 pounds. They are wonderfully marked mixed breed dogs. Both dogs are good in meeting other socialized dogs, neither have been observed around cats. Noel and Zeus are good with respectful children. They are described as “well-behaved and friendly”. Noel is said to be “very sincere and affectionate”. Zeus is “energetic but not in a hyperactive or destructive way, he’s calm when appropriate”. They are fine to be left alone together for a work day. Noel has trouble with steep stairs, she’s developing some age related trouble with her knee. Her son Zeus can handle stairs just fine and would probably appreciate more exercise than he is currently receiving. Both mother and son are good on a leash and are said to be “low maintenance dogs”. Since they have lived together all of Zeus’ life, their owner is hoping to find an adopter that will give them both a forever home together. This nice pair of dogs are posted for their owner in Bonney Lake.

Butkus & Abby 03/28/14

Butkus & Abby 03/28/14

Butkus (Buck) and Abby are a wonderful pair of senior Boxers who are completely bonded to each other. Abby is most definitely in charge and Buck happily let’s her run the show. He is such a laid-back type of guy he routinely lets her sit right down on top of him! At 11 years old Buck runs and plays like a puppy and boy can he jump! He has a few creaky joints, but is otherwise in perfect health. The vet thinks it’s possible he has a little bit of Lab mixed in with all his Boxer goodness, which would explain his long legs and could give him some additional longevity. He is a big boy at 90 pounds, but he plays with the very young puppy in his foster home so very gently. He lets that little rascal climb all over him, bite his tail and even try to ride him like a pony, and Buck just gives a small sigh as if to say, “look what I have to put up with!”

Abby is a very young 9 years old with a super sweet temperament. She just wants to be loved on and will wiggle her way into the middle of anyone else getting some attention. She can hear petting going on two rooms away! She does love to be outside and exploring but her favorite thing to do is nap next to her people and Buck.

They absolutely LOVE going in the car! They will race for the door when the magic words “let’s go” are said. They can stay alone in the car with no issues other than a possible move into the front for a better view. Abby and Buck also love walks, but Buck is a major puller. Abby does beautifully on leash and so does Buck when in the right equipment. Neither Buck nor Abby show any kind of aggression about anything. They get along with all sizes of other dogs with proper introductions; however, they would do best in a home without cats. They are superb with children, no jumping up or pushing over. They can be left alone in the home without getting into anything, so crating is not necessary as long as they have each other. They will bark an alert if they hear someone at the door and will head to the fence line when the neighbor’s dog barks, but both stop barking almost immediately. These two amazing dogs would be perfect companions for any family and will most certainly bring such joy and loving that you will just not believe! Abby and Buck are being fostered in Kingston, Washington. This pair is posted for Northwest Boxer Rescue.

ODH has not met these dogs; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

Spenser chiweenie 1029

Spenser chiweenie 10/29/13

My name is Spenser. I am an experienced pup of 12 years. They say I am a Dachshund/Chihuahua mix. I just found out that my elderly owner is leaving her home and can’t take me with her. I would love a home where I can play and go on short walks. I am even tempered and I get along with just about everyone. I’m potty trained, but would prefer not to be left alone for great amounts of time as I love being around my people. I don’t have to be adopted by an elderly person, but someone who is home more than not would be better for me…like maybe someone who works out of their home or works part time! I have a great personality and like to play with my doggie toys. I would do well in a home with a fenced yard. I’m in good health for my age. People say that I’m on the smaller side, but I would like to think I am a big pup. They tell me I’m about 12-15 pounds. If you think I’d fit into your family, I’d love to meet you! Spenser is posted for his owner in the Spokane area.

Twinkie

Twinkie

I’m Twinkie, a Chihuahua of about 9 years. When I arrived into rescue it was quickly learned that I was easy to care for but that I needed to be monitored so I didn’t have too many treats and get too “round” which is a nice way of saying “fat”. *sigh* Oh, the problems we women have in our middle years and battling weight gain. I learned that car rides and walks were pretty neat things to do so that’s been great exercise. I also have nice ways of letting you know that I need to go out and do my business. Then, I needed to have a bladder stone removed and now I’m a new dog! Not only that, people were awesome and sent in contributions for my vet bill which was close to $1,500. Thank you for believing I was worth it!

I should mention that I probably would do best being the only dog in the house and should avoid small kids. If you want the rest of my resume, please contact my foster mom who can answer any other questions you may have.

ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

Twinkie is posted for Furbaby Rescue; she is fostered in Bellingham. For an application, please email Sandra at psbark@wavecable.com.
