DOGS NEEDING ODH HOMES!

NaomiAngieBaxterSadie072814

We have had a very large number of pleas for help from shelters – way too many dogs for our current homes to take in. If you have ever thought about becoming an ODH Home, NOW is the time to apply (veterinary expenses are paid by ODH). Please be sure to read the material on Being an ODH Home for details before considering it, and contact us for an application. These are probably all Final Refuge dogs (permanent fosters, not adoptable). Matching each home to the right dog is very important, and the list of dogs in need will change frequently. If your situation works for an abandoned old creature, you will find it tremendously rewarding!

PUPDATES: 07/26/14 – More dogs moving to ODH homes – 8 dogs still on the list! See those still in need of homes here.


What’s going on!

* Richard, Archie, Minnie, Maggie, and Riley are new Adoptable Dogs!
* Lily, Heather, Bitsy, and ShuShu have been added to Final Refuge dogs for your sponsoring pleasure!

Minnie 07/28/14

Minnie 07/28/14

Minnie 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.

Toby 07/25/14

Toby 07/25/14

Little Toby is a cool California dude (probably a Chihuahua/Min Pin mix) who asks for his sweater when it’s time to go out in the Washington rain. He’s about 10 years old and has no idea that makes him a “senior” dog. Toby skips, hops, and leaps around like a little grasshopper when he’s excited, but he sure knows how to slow it down and cuddle too. He sleeps under the covers in bed, and barely moves all night – a wonderful hot water bottle! He loves to play with other dogs (although really big dogs make him nervous), and even asks the cats in his foster home to play with him, although they usually won’t. He has a heart murmur that doesn’t slow him down any, and has several broken teeth, probably due to severe kennel anxiety. He will panic and bark nonstop if left in a kennel or crate, even if he can see people – Toby really doesn’t need a kennel at all though. He’s well-behaved on leash and in the car (although he doesn’t like driving very much and sometimes whimpers a little bit). His little busybody self just has to be involved in everything, and he’ll climb and worm his way into laps and hearts of just about everyone he meets. Toby would be happiest in a home with more than one person, since he likes to share the love and wiggle from lap to lap, and either a doggie sibling or regular play-dates with other small dogs. Toby is in foster care in Ocean Shores.

Tucker 06/18/14

Tucker 06/18/14

Tucker is a 13-year-old Bichon Frise, kinda roly-poly at 22 pounds after living most of his life with an elderly person. He is a very loving guy who likes to be with his people, but can stay home for the workday with doggy companions (not his first choice, however). He insists on sleeping on your bed and will sit on your lap if you wish but is content with being near you otherwise. (If you are in the house he will definitely want to be near you.) Tucker is fine with the dogs of various sizes in his foster home, was quite interested in the cats but is getting used to those alien creatures, and seems to really enjoy children. Car rides aren’t his favorite thing but he’s good on a leash and crate-trained. He had been very itchy with lack of flea preventative and may need some ongoing care for his skin, and he has malformed hips which limit his mobility just a bit but he can still do stairs if he wants to! This little fellow doesn’t mind expressing his opinion and letting you know what he wants, but he rewards you with kisses and love. Bichons are devoted, loyal dogs who want their own person – Tucker is looking for his. He is in foster care in Maple Valley.

Richard 07/29/14

Richard 07/29/14

Richard is a tri-colored shepherd mix, about 10 years old and 65 pounds. He is the sweetest, most gentle guy. He’s very friendly and would do well with cats. Richard loves his treats and is eager to please. If you are looking for a nice dog to take on strolls and to relax with you on the sofa in the evenings, Richard is your man.

Riley 07/28/14

Riley 07/28/14

Riley is a 10 year old, 46 pound Brittany Spaniel mix. He was surrendered to a vet clinic with skin in very bad shape, instead of getting him the care he needed his owners just wanted him put to sleep. A big-hearted vet tech at the clinic saw Riley and knew she could help him so she took custody. Progress has already been made for Riley; his hair is growing in and he is comfortable. It turns out most of his issue was due to flea infestation! He is currently taking medication but hopefully he will get to a point where he won’t need it. Riley is living with another dog now and is social with other dogs he meets. He is living with cats and a young child as well and is doing just fine with them too. Doesn’t he sound like a wonderful dog? Riley can do stairs and stay alone for a work day as long as he gets a potty break every 4-5 hours (the time could extend once he’s weaned from the steroid). He knows some basic commands and his caretaker is working on his leash skills. Riley is described as “a gentle dog with sweet eyes”; his caretaker says he loves to rest his head in her lap. Riley is in Seattle with his caretakers, waiting for his forever home. Might that be with you? ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

Maggie 07/28/14

Maggie 07/28/14

This lovely girl’s name is Maggie and she’s believed to be about 11 years old. She averages about 45 pounds and looks to be a Golden Retriever mix or possibly Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever? She has been absolutely wonderful with her family’s children but (though she’s lived with another dog) she’s not enthusiastic other dogs and she’s never lived with a cat. Maggie and do stairs and stays alone for a work day without needing a potty break. At this time Maggie is not getting out for walks, but she’d really enjoy a home where she could get out more often. Maggie is a loving, loyal,very gentle dog who has been a great asset to her family as a trustworthy friend to the children. Her family is in the military and Maggie has moved over the years with them many times, but she cannot join them on an upcoming move. Their wish is to find a permanent home where she won’t have to move any more. Maggie is posted for her owners in Lacey. ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

Jackson 07/28/14

Jackson 07/28/14

Jackson is a 9-10 year old Chihuahua that has a wonderful laid-back disposition. He is a sweet, loving and dedicated companion that walks great on leash (although he would rather be carried), loves car rides and is crate-trained. Jackson aims to please. He is reliable in the house, doesn’t get into anything and is completely house trained. In his foster home he gets along with cats, dogs of all sizes and farm animals. Unlike the Chi reputation, Jack hardly barks; he may cry when you leave but settles down quickly. When it’s play time, Jackson loves to play the chase game with the other foster dogs. One of his owners died and the other went into assisted living, which we have seen way too often. He is a good little boy who just wants a companion to snuggle under the covers with or sit and watch TV together. Jack is posted for SPOT and is in Stanwood.

Yukon 07/26/14

Yukon 07/26/14

Yukon is a yellow Labrador (possibly with some Chesapeake thrown in?), 8-10 years old, around 74 pounds. He is a lively guy but not hyper at all, settles nicely in the house. He should remain active to stay trim and healthy as he is now. He’s fine with dogs and cats; kids over 8 only please, since there is no history of him with younger children. His health is excellent for a senior and he gets around well. He is as sweet as can be!

Yukon is posted for A Paw Up Rescue in Prosser; please contact alphamom33@aol.com for more information.

TJ 07/25/14

TJ 07/25/14

TJ is a 9-10 year old Pomeranian. He is a lap-loving, easy-going fellow who is looking for a quiet home to share his golden years. He has been housed with several small breed dogs and seems to enjoy their company. The shelter isn’t sure how he is with bigger dogs, but if they are respectful he should do ok. Cats don’t interest him so he would also be fine sharing a home with a friendly feline. He does prefer the company of adults so while young visitors would be ok, a home without children would best suit him. He has no teeth so requires a soft food diet. There are no other known medical issues.

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

Achilles 07/22/14

Achilles 07/22/14

Meet Achilles! a purebred Redbone Coonhound, 8-9 years old, lively but not hyper. Weighing about 65 pounds, Achilles is a wonderful and respectful older gentleman who is just as handsome as can be. He has deep chocolate eyes and a lovely baying voice. He “talks” a lot! He has a very distinguished frosty face that is just adorable! Please be familiar with hounds. He is a lovely dog but hounds are not for everyone!

Achilles would love a retirement home with a large fenced yard away from populous areas where he could “hunt” his days away! He would love to travel, or hike or do other outdoor activities but is also fine lounging around the house! He should go to a home with kids over 12 since his history with younger children isn’t known. He plays with a similar-sized male now and is respectful of other dogs; he might want to hunt cats but doesn’t harm them. His health is good except for small fatty lumps.

Kayla 07/19/14

Kayla 07/19/14

Kayla is an 11-year-old, 64-pound Golden Retriever. She has lived with cats and been fine with them but she can be dominant with other dogs. Kayla used to live with another dog so perhaps she could live again with a submissive dog in a home with a dog-savvy owner. She is described by her owners as “loving” and has been great with respectful children of all ages. Kayla loves to chase a ball, can do stairs and knows how to “heel” while on leash.

This lovely girl has Diabetes Insipidus (not Diabetes Mellitus, not life-threatening) which is treated with daily medication. For that reason she may need to drink and urinate more often than normal. Kayla is potty trained so if she has access to potty while you are out or at work she will do just fine. A forever home is needed for Kayla soon. She is posted for her owners in Olympia.

Bob 07/19/14

Bob 07/19/14

Bob, a black lab mix, is probably about 12 years old. He is 45 pounds of wonderful dog. Bob was found stray and taken in by a rescue. There, Bob has been good with other dogs and cats too. Bob has been good around kids but would prefer a home without young children.

He needs a potty break about every 3-5 hours so a home with a dog door would be helpful if you must be gone longer than that. Bob has enjoyed the company of other dogs and people during the day but perhaps he’d be OK for a workday if he had a friendly canine companion to spend the day with. Bob really enjoys getting out, he gets very excited! He is not super active however as his senior body cannot keep up with his young spirit. He is great on a leash and also knows “sit” and “stay”. Since Bob is an older guy, steep steps are a little hard on him so he should go to a home where he won’t have to tackle those as he ages gracefully. Bob would like to wander so a home with a fenced yard is a must. His rescuers describe him as “a real sweetheart of a dog with a unique personality.” Bob is posted for his caretakers in Seattle.

Sunny 07/17/14

Sunny 07/17/14

Sunny is a beautiful 12-year-old ex-racing greyhound weighing around 63 pounds. Sunny was as in a home and returned through no fault of hers. She is very sweet, loveable and loves attention and to cuddle. She is good with toys and loves walks and car rides. Sunny does not like to share, so would do best in a home where she is the only apple of your eye or one other greyhound. Sunny does ok with other greyhounds, but not other dogs. She will need a home where someone is home a fair amount of time, although she has been left for 6 to 7 hours at a time. She will also need a home without cats or children. Won’t you give this beautiful older lady her forever couch? She is in Woodinville, Washington.

Sammi 07/17/14

Sammi 07/17/14

Sammi ended up at the shelter after her owner died without having a pet plan in place. She is a smaller border collie (about 35-40 pounds) and is nearing 10 years old. All she ever knew before now was her home and her one person. When she arrived at the shelter, she didn’t even know how to play fetch! (She is super smart and is catching on quickly). Sammi tolerates most people well, but has a special fondness for women over 50. She wants to be someone’s devoted companion again, and she will be somewhat protective once she bonds (not that a 35 pound dog will rescue you from a rabid bear… but she would TRY). She has a couple of odd quirks. She barks a lot when she sees another dog and, so far, won’t eat unless we hand-feed her. Did her former owner do that? Who knows, but no doubt she would learn to eat on her own once she was back in a home setting.

Sammi had not been spayed and, as too common, had a mammary tumor. She was spayed and the tumor removed; it was a BENIGN adenoma. She should be monitored for the rest of her life (which could be 5-7 years or so), in case other adenomas develop, but now that she has been spayed the chances go way down. (If you are considering adopting Sammi, but want to discuss the biopsy with your vet FIRST, the shelter can email or fax the biopsy report to you or your vet.)

Sammi doesn’t seem interested in cats. Other than barking at them she seems to like other dogs, but would prefer that they not take “her” stuff. Her ideal home would be as a constant companion for a senior or someone who works from home, or someone that likes to go for walks and then cuddle on the couch. Unlike a younger border collie, Sammi’s energy is not on “super-hyper-mode” and she can easily be satisfied with a short game of fetch or a fun walk.

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

Sammi comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period. She is posted for Forget-Me-Not Shelter in Republic, Washington. They have monthly transports to both the Seattle and Spokane areas, delivering adopted dogs to their new owners. Contact adopt@forgetmenotshelter.org for more information.

Molly 07/15/14

Molly 07/15/14

Molly is a very sweet 9-year-old Pom mix. She gets along with everybody: cats, dogs of all sizes, and people of all ages. She needs to be rehomed because her owner went to a nursing home. Molly rides well in a car, knows “sit” and “come”, and can walk well on a loose leash. She is house trained, crate trained and enjoys walks…short ones right now because she needs to lose a whole lot of weight. Her foster home is working on that.

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

Molly is fostered in Port Orchard and is posted for CHEW Dog Rescue. If you are interested in adopting her, please call Carolyn at 253 265-3530.

Sally Sweet Pea 07/13/14

Sally Sweet Pea 07/13/14

Sally is a dog that Ribseys Refugees adopted out 8 years ago. Her original name was Sweet Pea, so they have always called her Sally Sweet Pea. Her current family had a baby and no longer want the dog in their home. She totally lives up to her name and is a true Sweet Pea! She is a VERY nice dog, always got along well with other dogs, lives with several cats and is, plain and simple, a really nice girl. She always was a bit ball crazy, and absolutely loves her tennis and Kong balls. She had ACL surgery when she originally came to rescue so she seems to have some arthritis now – who doesn’t?! Sally loves to go on walks, swim in the lake, and snooze on the couch. She’s likely about 9 or 10 now, is still active and healthy, but certainly not a high energy dog. Sally is looking for her new home where she can live her life out in comfort and ease. She’s totally worth it!

Sydney 07/12/14

Sydney 07/12/14

Sydney is a very pretty girl. She is between 9-10 years old, weighs about 35 pounds and is presumed to be a Heeler mix. With her current family she has not lived with dogs or cats but she did prior to her adoption. When meeting other dogs she can be anxious so proper introductions are important. She is not doing well with her family’s baby, so a home with kids 10 years old and over would be best. Sydney loves being active! She enjoys taking walks, she can run for about 20 minutes, and likes to chase a tennis ball. Sydney also loves her toys and knows how to “play dead”. She can stay alone for a work day without needing a potty break.

Sydney would love to be a lap dog, she’s very affectionate and friendly. We think she sounds like a wonderful, fun companion dog with a great personality. She is posted for her owner in Seattle.

Teddy and Tess are two little furry bundles of doggy love! These 13-year-old Poms are both super affectionate and are happiest curled up snoozing in the sun with friends. Teddy has wonderful manners and is never far behind Tess who likes to lead the way. This awesome twosome have lived together their whole lives and would very much like to keep it that way.

Benson, a 10-year-old pitty love! Gentle Benson has just arrived at the PAWS shelter and seems a little lost and lonely. He is a wonderful ‘elderbull’ with easygoing manners and a sweet disposition. Benson gets along great with other mellow dogs and enjoys their company and hang-out time. He would love to find a place that can take him out for walks and give him some big comfy beds to cuddle up in at the end of the day. He really is the perfect pittie and would do best in a home that can give him lots of love!

You won’t meet a more handsome boy than Tanner! He is a red and black Standard Dachshund (19 pounds) with a charming and darling personality. He enjoys walks, play time, and snuggles. He is 10 years in age but does not act it. He loves other dogs but should be in a cat-free home. He’d be be best suited for older kids that are dog-savvy (he has never lived with kids before and can be a little sensitive with handling). He is a goofy boy that is a natural comedian. Go meet this handsome fellow today!

Handsome, mellow, and loving… this darling boy is Newburg! Newburg is a 10-year-old Toy Fox Terrier that was found roaming as a stray in the Everett area and then transferred to Homeward Pet to start his new life. Newburg is a great little guy who weighs in at just 7 pounds. He seems to do OK with other dogs but we are unsure about his history with cats. He would be best suited for a quieter home with teens and adults as he is small and requires delicate handling. Newburg enjoys leisurely walks and hanging with his pals at the shelter.

Saber 06/10/14

Saber 06/10/14

Saber is a wonderful 13-year-old German Shepherd Dog. His former owner was heartbroken to give him up but, because of her age and Saber’s size and mobility, she knew it was the only safe option. He was unfortunately a dog who was loved a little too much when it came to food; he was very overweight. This is not healthy for any dog but for a large senior dog it can make life very difficult. Saber’s foster is helping him lose weight and he is taking an anti-inflammatory which he will need to stay on to keep him comfortable. He is currently 130 pounds but the goal is to slowly get him down to a healthy 110 pounds. He cannot do stairs and he does not like “slippery” floors as he has hip dysplasia. Saber loves to be with his people, he is most happiest when he is able to sit and watch his family. He is friendly with strangers and he is getting along great with the other dog in his foster home but has never been observed around cats. Saber’s foster calls him “a truly golden dog; he is gentle and obedient as well.” Saber is courtesy-posted for Josephine County Animal Hospital in Oregon.

He’s a sweet and strong 9-year-old boy looking for an owner who will spoil him in his golden years. He is good on a leash and weighs 70 pounds. Peanut is in need of a cat-free home. He seems to be good with other dogs and lived in a home with small children previously. Peanut has lived most of his life outdoors, but actually seems to be potty trained.

Gladys 05/31/14

Gladys 05/31/14

“Hello, my name is Gladys. I am a dignified older gal looking for a loving companion. I am about 10 years old or so. My own person passed away and I was turned into a very large shelter. I was stressed and sad at the shelter but thankfully I was taken in by a rescue and I was able to get the medical help I needed. I am really beautiful if I say so myself! I am black and white. I must be mixed with something to get the white part of my body; I like to think I’m part Dalmatian but who knows and does it really matter? I would really love to be adopted by someone who is home most of the time or who can take me to work with them. I travel well, I’m potty trained, I have very good manners. I have very thin front foot pads so need to wear special booties when I’m on gravel or pavement. Other than that I’m no trouble. I come with the booties, too. I am living with many different-sized dogs and at first they picked on me and I tried to just get away. I don’t want any trouble with them, so I just walk away and eventually they leave me alone. I love to be outside while my foster mom works in the garden. I am a very nice dog and I hope a very nice someone is interested in sharing their life with me.” Gladys is in foster care in Redmond.

Kayce 05/24/14

Kayce 05/24/14

Kayce is a unique-looking (and we think pretty!) little 25-pound mixed breed girl who is just 9 years old – elegant and longlegged but not very big at all. She is an active girl; she loves to run and go for walks. Kayce also loves to play fetch with tennis balls. She really does need to have another canine companion whom she can buddy up with in her new home as she has always lived with another dog. Kayce can stay home while you go off to work as long as she has her buddy; she is still a youngster in our view so can go for 8+ hours without a potty accident. Kayce has never lived with cats but has lived with kids and been very good with them as long as they are gentle. She is described as “a big lover and eager to please.” Her family would like to find a home for her where she can get more attention. Kayce is posted for her owners in Mukilteo.

Romeo 05/18/14

Romeo 05/18/14

Romeo is a wonderful male 8-year-old, 13-pound Tri-color Papillon who is just as sweet as can he can be. He has one ear up & one ear down – half phalene – too adorable! Romeo only takes a short time to warm up to new people. He will snuggle in your lap occasionally but mostly likes to hang out in any dog bed near his people. He follows you from room to room, you’re never lonely with Romeo around. He loves being petted, playing with you on the floor with squeaky toys, exploring the yard, and chasing little birds. Romeo absolutely loves to play and get petted on the bed – who knows why but it’s adorable. He just seems to feel most comfortable there and will dance around, playing with you and rolling around. Then he’s so excited he gets zoomies and runs all over the house. Romeo is fully housetrained, he has never had an accident in his foster home even in the beginning. Romeo is crate trained and eagerly runs to his crate for his meals – he loves his food! He gets so excited that he howls! Romeo is laid back if nothing is going on but is always ready for some fun if you want to take him bye-bye, he jumps right in the car. He walks wonderfully on leash but gets a bit overexcited when he sees another dog so we are working on that.

Romeo is posted for PapillonRescue and is in Tacoma.

His owner says that he loves people. This cutie is posted for his owner in Stanwood. ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

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.

Kiera 03/13/14

Kiera is a beautiful black 8-year-old ex-racing greyhound who weighs around 70 pounds and was born on St. Patrick’s Day. She is a wonderful, sweet and funny girl who has the most dainty way of walking. She has excellent house manners, enjoys car rides and going for walks. She loves her meals and her bed Kiera has been in a home before and was returned through no fault of hers. She was an only dog in her previous home, but she may need the company of another dog.

Kona 01/28/14

Kona 01/28/14

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.

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

Please contact the owner’s representative Monica at 509-995-1507 for more information about Spenser
