Diego 01/20/15

Diego 01/20/15

Diego (rooting for the SeaHawks)

Diego (rooting for the SeaHawks)

Little Diego is a big loveable goof in a 10-pound body who loves to ham it up! Everywhere he goes, people fall in love with him and take his picture. He is also a dear sweet boy who will snuggle with you. (When she asks “who’s your mama?” he comes up and stretches to put his head on his foster mom’s chest.) Diego, a 9-year-old Chihuahua, is an easy guy to live with. He gets along with dogs of all sizes and ages and enjoys playing with them. (Well,he wasn’t so thrilled with young puppies…) He mostly ignores the cat in his foster home and has been very good with the children he’s met. As with any dog this small, he should go to a home with gentle kids over 6 but he will tolerate visiting children if supervised.

Diego is OK left home with dogs during the day but needs a potty break in the middle. He is excellent on leash and in the car, enjoys being on his person’s lap or by her side, and wants to burrow under a cover on her bed. Diego is a healthy, now toothless guy with a wonderful personality. He is looking for a fabulous family that can give him some one-on-one time, he says you’ll love him! Diego is in foster care in Seattle.

Wagner 01/29/15

Wagner 01/29/15

Wagner is a Norwich Terrier mix, 12 years old and about 7 pounds. He is a handsome senior guy with a lot of personality! He quickly makes friends with everyone he meets, and loves to snuggle. He acts much younger than he actually is and loves to head out on brisk walks around the block. Wagner is ready for some cuddles after that, and maybe some yummy treats. He promises to be your new best friend and to stick by you no matter what. You definitely should meet this awesome little guy.

Tate 01/29/15

Tate 01/29/15

Hi the name’s Tate, at least that’s what the shelter named me. I am a gentle gent looking to start my new life with you. At 10 years old and weighing in at 45 pounds, I am the perfect mellow guy. Leisurely walks and big, cozy beds are what I’m looking for. The shelter does not know much about me but they did notice my keen interest in the smaller creatures. I might be a little too interested, if you know what I mean. Please ask about me today!

Joseph 01/29/15

Joseph 01/29/15

Hello, my name is Joseph. I am currently in a shelter foster home. I f you are interested in me, contact Alix, the Foster Coordinator, at alix.womack@multco.us or 503-988-6247 to set up a time to meet me! I am a mature gentleman who wasn’t handling the fast paced shelter environment very well. I was scared, trembling, and not seeking out attention from humans. That’s why I’m in foster care now, and I am ready for my forever home :) I am a totally different dog in a home! I have a ton of energy and love to run in the yard and play fetch and go for walks. I would do fine in a home with other, respectful dogs or cats, but I’d prefer a home without children under the age of 10. Do you have room in your heart for a guy like me? I am around 9 years old and weigh a slender 39 pounds. Ask about me today!

Ringo 01/29/15

Hey there, I’m not Ringo Starr but I am a Ringo and could be a shining star in your home. I am a 10-year-old German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix and I weigh about 70 pounds. Don’t let my age and breed mix scare you off! I am friendly, active and like playing with tennis balls, going for walks and catching treats. I do need to be in an adult-only home because I do not want to rough house with kids. If you are looking for a calm older dog with plenty of get up and go, please check me out.

Girl 01/29/15

Hi, my name is Girl! I am a sprightly older Chihuahua-mix lady, looking for the perfect place to live out my golden years. If you are interested in learning more about me, please email my foster mom at aimeeslomo@gmail.com. Although I am blind, I am extremely relaxed and capable when it comes to learning new surroundings. I enjoy wandering the yard, going on walks, and going to the dog park and I walk very well on leash. I am crate trained! I am affectionate and sweet, and would love to while away the hours on your lap or by your feet. I have done fabulously with crating in my foster home, and have been exposed to large and small dogs as well as cats. I am house-trained if I’m let out regularly or have access to a dog door. Ask about me today!

Scrappy Doo 01/27/15

Scrappy Doo 01/27/15

Scrappy Doo is a 14-year-old Chihuahua who came into the care of his current caregiver when Scrappy was about to lose his home. He is still a bit overweight at 9 pounds but they continue to work on it; when she took him in he weighed 18 pounds! Scrappy Doo currently lives with 3 big, young dogs, he has done fine with dogs of all sizes and cats too. Young, energetic children frighten him so he should go to a home with older kids who are gentle and respectful. Scrappy Doo is crate trained and does very well with that for a work day but because of his age, he’d much prefer a home where he doesn’t have to “hold it” for so long. He can reportedly do stairs still and he does great on a leash for his daily walks. Doesn’t he sound like a delightful little guy? Scrappy Doo is a friendly, cuddly boy who is described as “the sweetest Chihuahua EVER!”. His caregiver has done a lot to get him healthy and she is hoping to find someone who will truly appreciate Scrappy Doo for the special dog he is.

Scrappy Doo is posted for his rescuer in Bellingham.

Tucker 01/26/15

Tucker is a 13-pound Rat Terrier mix who is not quite 10 years old. Isn’t he CUTE? T ucker has not lived with other dogs. He would need someone familiar with proper introductions and integrating a new dog into a home if he were to go to a home with another dog. Tucker does not like cats and he really does not like young children. While that may seem like too many negatives, he truly sounds like a fun dog who could be a wonderful addition to the right home. He is fine to stay alone for a workday after the initial sadness of his person leaving. Tucker is good on a leash and he loves going on long walks. He is said to have “a quiet manner about him”. Tucker enjoys playing with toys and going for rides in the car. He is an attentive dog who is ready to make someone a loyal companion. Tucker is in Lynnwood.

Opie 01/23/15

Meet Opie: an 8-year-old, 70-pound black lab mix. Opie’s enthusiasm for life is heartwarming: he leaps into the air for dinner and loves to go for walks. When Opie first arrived at his shelter he was malnourished and weak from being tethered outside for most of his life, but he was still so full of love and joy. Even though he was malnourished and thin, his tail never stopped wagging! Today Opie is happy and healthy, and ready for the loving home he deserves. Opie is very friendly and true to his breed, he has tons of enthusiasm. He loves to sleep, but when he’s awake he is always in high spirits He would love to have a big backyard where he can run around and feel like a pup again. With his energy level, Opie would do best as a single dog. Opie is not reactive to cats when walking on a leash, it is unknown if Opie has ever lived with a cat. If you have a space in your home for this sweet senior boy, Opie is more than ready to find to his forever home. Opie is courtesy-posted for Pasado’s Safe Haven in Sultan, Washington.

What a sweet face Keely has! She is an almost 11-year-old labrador/shepherd mix. Keely has lived her life with another dog and is said to be social with other dogs she meets but would possibly be OK as an “only” dog. Keely has never lived with cats. She has lived with kids, preferring a home with kids age 7 and older. Keely can do stairs and does well on a leash for walks. She is fine to stay home for a work day without needing a potty break.

Gunner 01/25/15

Gunner is a handsome yellow labrador who is only 9 years old. He is incredibly wonderful with children of all ages and he deserves a home with only kind, respectful kids. Gunner is good with other dogs and would in fact do best in a home where he has at least another friendly canine companion. He has never been observed around cats. Gunner is good to stay with another dog for a work day without needing a potty break. He can do stairs and is good on a leash for walks. Sweet Gunner lives in Auburn, ready for his new family.

Bobby 01/22/15 *Adopted* 01/25/15

This easygoing gentleman’s name is Bobby and he will be a breeze to adjust to your home – he is a mellow, well adjusted gentleman with a winning smile and wonderful temperament. He is about ten years in age and is thought to be a Chow Chow/Corgi mix. He was found as a stray in the Yakima area and then transported to Homeward Pet so that his forever home could be found. His foster home reports that he was good with the other dogs in the home, was housetrained, and was an easygoing gentleman who loved to be brushed. Bobby needs a little guidance on how to behave around cats as he does try to chase, and would probably prefer a home with quieter kids that are slightly older. He weighs in at forty-eight pounds and loves affection and will make a wonderful companion and friend!

Bobby is posted for Homeward Pet in Woodinville.

Pookah 01/21/15

Pookah 01/21/15

Pookah is a beautiful girl, about 13 years old. She is sweet, affectionate and quiet; when in the shelter office she sleeps on a soft dog bed. She was a “stray” but spent some time in a Good Samaritan’s home where she did well with other dogs, a cat and children. She enjoys playing with a small dog and perhaps is more comfortable with a little one. If she were to live with dogs her size or larger, a well-adjusted and low-key male would probably be easiest for her. Pookah is 53 pounds but seems smaller because she has some weakness in her rear legs and is perhaps a bit frail. She gets around well and enjoys walks but can’t play hard with other dogs any longer. Pookah has been at the Humane Society for Southwest Washington (in Vancouver WA) for too long, she would really like to meet her forever family!

Frankie 01/18/15

Frankie 01/18/15

Frankie is a Shih Tzu mix who weighs 19 pounds and is about 8 years old. He is OK with other dogs but may be unsure about big dogs. Frankie has not been observed around cats; would do best in a quieter home with a person of his own. He is crate trained and he can go for about 5 hours without needing a potty break. Frankie can stay alone without anxiety but would prefer to go to a home where he is not left alone for a full workday. He loves to play outside and would appreciate a fenced yard he can run around in. Frankie does well on a leash and he loves going for walks. He is described as “a very loving and loyal dog”. Frankie is a lap dog who will follow you anywhere, he will make someone a wonderful companion dog. This darling dog is currently in Olympia waiting for his forever home.

Milton 01/16/15 *Adoption Pending* 01/28/15

Milton is an 11 year old Border Collie/Australian Shepherd/Who Knows What mix, who likely lived a very sheltered (and somewhat boring) life. The shelter says: “We had him neutered and his teeth cleaned, and had a full senior blood panel run – Milton’s blood results look better than MINE. If we hadn’t been told he was 11, we would guess him as closer to 7 or 8. He was quite thin when he arrived. He didn’t understand about play, or even about being groomed, at first – but he has had a couple of fun warm baths, lots and lots of brushing, and is rapidly getting the fetch thing down, too! He was a bit shy and unsure of himself, very polite but not given to much enthusiasm or many smiles. After a month of TLC, we can’t get him to STOP smiling! He is so very, very happy, and it makes all of us smile, too.

Milton likes all the people he has met, and seems tolerant of most other polite dogs, with a preference for females.  He will make an easy-going, loyal friend to someone. He enjoys spending time outside, particularly if you go out to play with him, and would be a pretty good walking companion (though he needs some leash training if you want to walk him in a congested area). He loves running around the fenced dog yard at the shelter, playing fetch, looking for places to hide anything he thinks of as his (yes, he will sometimes try to find a place to hide the ball – he is just THRILLED to have his own ‘stuff’). He will also sometimes try to bury his food; perhaps he used to have to compete with other dogs, and wants to make sure he has a safe stash!

He shows a clear preference for stew-and-gravy type canned food over kibble, but will eat kibble if it is mixed with the canned food. We are looking for a very special home so he will know love and the joy of fetch for the rest of his years.”

Milton comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period. He is posted for Forget-Me-Not shelter in Republic, Washington.  Can’t come to Republic? Don’t let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your payment to help us cover our volunteer driver’s expenses, that would be great!

Sahti

Sahti

Beautiful Sahti is a 10-year-old Boston Terrier/Pug mix who weighs 16 pounds. Sahti needs a home where she can be an only dog as she is clashing badly with another dog she currently lives with. She has never been observed around cats or children. Sahti can manage stairs fine but she does have some stiffness in her rear legs. However, that does not stop Sahti from loving her walks and she does pretty well on a leash. Sahti loves playing in water and playing with toys. She is described as a “lovable and friendly dog”. She can be clown-like as a Pug can be, with the temperament of a Boston and incredible brindle marking. Sahti is crate-trained and can stay alone for a work day as long as she stays in her crate. Sahti needs a home with an experienced dog owner who will adopt her not just because of her good looks. In exchange, she will reward you with lots of love, lots of laughs and a warm lap. Sahti currently on Anderson Island.

Bonnie 01/13/15

8-year-old Bonnie is a beautiful Pit Bull mix who weighs 45 pounds. She is good with other dogs that have similar energy as she does; she does not appreciate pesky puppies (and who can blame her?). It is unknown how Bonnie would do with a cat but her rescuer would be willing to check for that. She’s good with humans of all ages after being a little shy at first. Bonnie loves to go for walks and does well on a leash. Bonnie is described as “a well-behaved girl who will appreciate a home with lots of love, attention, activity and a yard with a fence”. She is posted for Adopt A Pet and is being fostered near Olympia, Washington.

Penny & Lulu 01/08/15 *Adoption Pending* 01/18/15

Penny and Lulu are 2 adorable petite 10-year old sisters who have been together since birth. (Lulu always has her tongue out!) Their owner passed away and the family gave them to Pacific Pug Rescue. These two are extremely bonded, and where you find one you will find the other. They love to romp and play and go for walks and, being pugs, they LOVE to cuddle with their person and each other. The girls are both perfectly potty trained and also crate trained…as long as the crate is big enough for both of them! Per the previous owner’s family both girls have occasional seizures that are not serious enough to require medication, however none have been seen while in rescue. We would like to see the girls be able to remain together, and so will be adopting them as a pair. Penny and Lulu are located in Portland, Oregon with Pacific Pug Rescue.

Badger

Badger

Meet Badger! Badger is an 11 year old Boston Terrier. He weighs 21 pounds. Badger came into rescue because he needed immediate medical care and his owner could not afford the treatment. He is totally blind. Badger has not been in rescue long. He was rushed into surgery to remove his left eye due to a melting ulcer and has not had much social time. He is very mellow and loves to sit with his human, lie by the fire, and snuggle. Badger loves his treats. He loves to walk and totally trusts the person on the other end of the leash. He quickly orients himself to new surroundings. Badger’s perfect family would be one that is loving and patient, where someone can be home part of the day or take him to work with them or come home for lunch, is active and will include him in their daily activities, and take him for daily walks. This will help with bonding and provide clear positive communication. Can you give little Badger the best years of his life?

He is up to date on his vaccines and just had a dental. He is very energetic and lively. He can be affectionate and loving and he can be a bit of a barker. Strider loves to go for walks and play tug. He has one speed and it is fast. He is interested in everything. He gets along with most dogs (but not cats), he loves treats and eats well. Strider’s perfect family would be one that is loving and patient, where someone can be home part of the day, take him to work with them, comes home for lunch, is active and will include him in their daily activities, and take him for daily walks. His family would commit to taking him to an obedience class and work with him on his house training manners. This will help with bonding, provide clear, positive communication, and refresh his manners. Can you give little Strider the best years of his life?

Sugar 01/04/15

Sugar 01/04/15

Sugar is a wonderful mixed breed girl who weighs about 50 pounds, guessed to be between 8 and 9 years old. Sugar has lived cats and does very well with them, as long as they are calm cats who don’t want to jump or bite her tail. Unfortunately Sugar was attacked by a group of dogs and that was traumatic for her; since then she has not been OK around other dogs. Sugar has been well-behaved around children who are like-wise. She is a delightful companion to adults. Sugar is great on a leash, she loves to get out and walk and play ball. Sugar LOVES the water and turns puppy-like when she goes to the beach! She can do stairs as long as they are not too steep. Sugar is dogdoor trained and can stay alone for a work day. This fun girl is in Bellingham, waiting for her forever home. Might that be with you?

Gracie 12/26/14

Gracie 12/26/14

Gracie is an almost 9 year old chihuahua. She weighs 13 pounds (needs to lose a couple more…) and she was recently diagnosed with diabetes. Gracie is a goofy little sweetheart of a dog! She LOVES to be scratched and petted, but she does NOT enjoy sitting on your lap. Gracie is mostly house trained and used to sleeping in a crate with a pee pad at night. She walks very well on a leash when she is leashed up — though she rarely needs a leash when taken outside. Gracie does not really enjoy other dogs or cats, but she tolerates them very well as long as they don’t try to mess with her too much. Gracie would likely do well with older kids that are respectful of dogs and let them have their space.

Gracie is on twice a day insulin which requires a small injection. With a little distraction, the injection is easily done and she can continue her busy day of napping, rolling around in her bed, and waiting for the treat bag to crinkle so she can beg for treats! Gracie is a really great little dog who deserves her own people to dote on her, sing her songs about how cute she is, and scratch her little butt multiple times a day!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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