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.

Bella 11/26/14

Bella 11/26/14

Boon 11/26/14

Boon 11/26/14

Bella and Boon are 11-year-old Golden Retrievers who would like to find a home together. Bella weighs 95 pounds, Boon weighs 85 pounds. They have lived together all of their lives and are good with other dogs. The pair has lived with cats and kids as well and done just fine. Bella is described as “a love sponge”, she doesn’t require much exercise but would probably benefit from more. Boon is said to be “a very sweet boy who loves to play fetch”. He is also described as “fun”. Like Bella, Boon would enjoy going for more walks.

The pair can do stairs and go as long as 8 hours without needing a potty break. If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to share your life with a Golden Retriever, you know that having a pair would be double the joy. Bella and Boon are currently in Seattle.

Josie 11/26/14

Josie 11/26/14

Josie is a sweet, gentle 85-pound, 10-year-old female Rottie mix with a docked tail. She has lived with another large dog and would probably do well with a new friend after a slow introduction. They would need to meet prior to adoption. She may do well with a dog-savvy cat that will not run. She can be slightly protective of her food so she would do best in a home with kids 10 or older. Josie just wants a quiet place to live out her final years. The vet did some labwork and all her organs look good and healthy. Other than some old dog lumps and bumps and some arthritis, Josie appears healthy. She is presently on some arthritis medication to increase her mobility and potential adopters should consider this for her lifetime.

Huck 11/26/14 *Adopted* 11/27/14

Huck is an 11-year-old, 7-pound neutered male Toy Poodle. He would do well in a home with cats or other friendly, gentle dogs. He is very friendly and playful and loves attention so he would do well with children as long as they understand that a dog this size needs gentle handling. Huck has very few teeth left so he will need canned food for the rest of his life.

Echo 11/24/14

Echo 11/24/14

Echo is a 10-year-old, 24-pound Miniature Schnauzer. Isn’t he handsome? Echo has been a wonderful companion to his senior people. He has never lived with other dogs before and can be a bit unsure when meeting them. That’s not to say he wouldn’t be OK sharing his home with another dog, just that he will need someone who can get him acclimated to doing so. Echo has never lived with cats or children either. When out and about Echo has not been too thrilled about kids. He can do stairs, enjoys a walk every day and loves going along for car rides. Since his people are retired folks, he’s never had to stay alone for a work day but he has been OK to stay alone (without barking) for quite a few hours at a time. Echo’s owners say he is a very loving dog and is friendly with new people once he gets to know them. Because of his owner’s own health struggle, they are no longer able to care for him so a new home must be found for Echo. He is posted for his owners in Everett.

Alli 11/22/14

Alli 11/22/14

Hi everyone. We just found out that November is “Adopt a Senior Pet Month”. Good for us because we are both seniors! Good for you because you can adopt TWO lovely deserving senior sisters! My name is Trouble, I am a 13-year-old Maltese mix. Don’t know how I got that name because I am a happy girl, although I’m not terribly fond of cats. My sister’s name is Alli. She’s a 12-year-old Bichon Frise mix. Shhhh, don’t let her know I told you, but all she really wants is a comfy bed on which she can sleep all day. We have lived together in harmony our entire lives. Sadly, our mom had to surrender us to the shelter because she could no longer care for us. Although Alli has a vision problem that will require lifelong medication, you don’t have to worry because I’ll help you remember to give it to her. Please hurry because Adopt a Senior Pet Month is more than half over already! We would be so thankful to have a real home by Thanksgiving! Could you please share our story with all your friends and family to help us find a loving home where we can stay together forever? Thanks!

Charlie 11/22/14

Charlie 11/22/14

Charlie is a Chihuahua mix, about 12 years old and 8 pounds. Charlie is a great dog! This mellow little senior has an expressive face and sweet personality! He is easy going; enjoys his people and his naps. He is independent and tends to ignore his foster home’s resident dogs; he is good with their cat. Charlie is a handsome blond, with brown tips on his ears, beautiful black eyes and a black button nose. He is house-trained on a schedule and working on crate training.  A home with respectful children 10 and over would be considered. Charlie deserves a loving “forever home”. He is fostered in Issaquah.

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.

Larry 11/15/14 *Adopted* 11/24/14

Are you looking for a quiet and easygoing gentleman to join your home? Then you have found the perfect fit with Larry! Larry is a ten year old Lab mix that was surrendered to another local shelter and transferred to Homeward Pet to find his forever home. Larry is a gentleman of a dog who does not ask for much – some petting, food, and a cozy bed to relax on. He has lived with dogs and cats before and done well. He does have some arthritis, like many large breed dogs do at his age (he’s 86 pounds!) and is on a pain medication to help manage it. He loves his treats though and giving him his medication is easy. Larry is a lovely soul who wants a home with limited stairs, and older kids who can be gentle and respectful would be best. L arry would likely prefer a home with a yard, and would have a hard time in an apartment. If you are looking for someone to relax and spend quality time with, go meet Larry!

Billy 11/15/14

Billy 11/15/14

Are you looking for a mild-mannered older dog to be your new best friend? If so, please allow us to introduce you to Billy! This quiet gentleman is 10 years old and weighs about 25 pounds. He was found as a stray so not much is known about his previous life. The shelter does know if that Billy will make a great easygoing companion for those who love senior dogs. He possesses a gentle nature and is friendly with everyone he meets, including other dogs. They’re not sure about cats, but it’s likely he would be compatible with a mellow cat after a proper introduction. Billy’s eyesight is a bit compromised, but he gets around just fine. He would appreciate a home environment where things move at a leisurely pace. Kids who are a bit older are most appropriate for him. Billy is quite charming and longing for someone to call him their very own. Will you be the one?

Humphrey 11/13/14 *Adopted* 11/24/14

Humphrey is a cute and friendly 10 year old Shih tzu. He likes to snuggle, enjoys being brushed, and will probably prove to be a lapdog. He walks nicely on a leash and will playfully chase cats. This sweet little guy needs medicine for his eyes and medicated baths for a skin issue that his new family will need to provide for him. Humphrey weighs just under 15 pounds.

Hamilton 11/13/14 *Adopted* 11/23/14

Hamilton: ”I am a VERY sweet old guy looking for a special forever home. I really love gentle loving people and I really love hot dogs and treats even more! Unfortunately the vet found a spot of skin cancer on my belly. She did a great job of removing it and it shouldn’t come back, but no guarantees. My new home will need to monitor my belly for new spots. Probably too much sun tanning in my youth! I really don’t hear well but I am so good, it doesn’t seem to matter. I like other gentle dogs and cats. Once in a while I like to go for little short walks, but don’t need too much. My vet says I shouldn’t eat so many cookies because I am a little overweight. I really like cookies.” Hamilton is a Toy Fox Terrier mix who is VERY overweight at 19 pounds. He’ll like walks much better when he weighs much less!

Precious 11/06/14

Precious 11/06/14

Precious is a friendly and easygoing 8-year-old girl! She is happy with some love and attention and especially enjoys treats. Precious will gladly relax with you while you work, occasionally reminding you she is there by your side. She was surrendered by her family and has been at the shelter way too long. She has some minor reoccurring health issues, so regular monitoring is needed to keep her healthy, happy and relaxed. Precious is the perfect companion for someone who needs a sweetheart to keep them company. She walks well on lead and loves to go for walks, she is housebroken, she has lived with one other dog and did well but guarded the food in a multi-dog foster situation. She has limited hearing but checks in with her handler on walks. She is a lovely girl who would love to meet you!

Fabio 11/05/14

Fabio 11/05/14

Silver Fox:  This handsome gentleman is Fabio! A spunky 8-year-old Papillon weighing in at 11 pounds.  Fabio is a sweet little guy who came to a shelter after his owners were moving and were unable to take him along.  Fabio does well with both dogs and cats, and is looking for a home with teens and adults that can handle him very gently.  Fabio is pretty shy at first, so he is looking for a quiet home that can take things very slowly and give him lots of time to settle in and adjust.  Once Fabio feels comfortable with someone, you get to see more of his sweet and gentle personality.  If you have a quiet home with a little room for this sweetheart, be sure to  meet him soon!

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

Fabio is currently in a foster home for Homeward Pet Adoption Center in Woodinville, and you may contact them directly for information or to meet him. November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month, featuring free adoptions on all senior cats and dogs, all month long at Homeward!

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 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.

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 *Adoption Pending* 11/20/14

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.

He can do stairs, is good on a leash, enjoys walks and play time. He will “sit pretty” for treats! John Paul is a cuddler, he really loves people and likes to be a “little shadow” to his caretaker.

Timber 10/26/14 *Adopted* 11/26/14

Timber, 9 year old, Husky/Shepherd mix – so handsome he should be called Hollywood. He is a very friendly guy, would do best in a home with a fenced yard and a lot of room to run due to his size. He is truly a lover and very gentle on a lead. He may be good with other dogs upon proper introduction. If you have another dog at home, or small children, they will need to come down and meet Timber at the shelter before any adoption can take place.

Duke

Duke

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.

Giovanni 10/26/14

Personable, loving, and oh so darling… this is Giovanni! Giovanni is quite the ham and though he is still new at Homeward Pet he has quickly become a staff and volunteer favorite thanks to his charming personality and darling looks. Giovanni is eight years in age and is thought to be an Olde English Bulldogge mix – he is black and white. Giovanni does well with other dogs but we are unsure about his history with cats. He would likely not be a great candidate for apartment living as he can be talkative. Giovanni is looking for a dog experience home with older children that can participate in care and training. He is a lovely gentleman who enjoys going for walks and loves to play with toys (he also loves food!) Come and meet this handsome fellow today and take him home with you.

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.

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

Kona 01//28/14

Kona 01//28/14 – Showing off his great smile!

I am one happy boy! My name ? Oh, sorry, I forgot… I’m Kona, and my buddies at West Columbia Gorge Humane Society in Washougal are trying to find me a home because my 9-year-old Labrador-mix bones could use something more comfortable than a shelter kennel. I prefer to be the only animal since I have been the only animal and I am not used to sharing. I would do best in a family with no children, but know that I am super-duper-friendly and AMAZING! I’ve had my shots and I’m neutered, and really, I am READY TO GO!! That’s where you come in! Please,see if you can help me find a Kona-worthy home really really soon. Kona is posted for West Columbia Gorge Humane Society.

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.

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.

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