Stella 08/02/14

Stella 08/02/14

Stella is way cuter than her picture! She is 40 pounds, about 10 years old, probably an Australian Shepherd mix – with adorable little white toes, a pretty face, and a great little round Aussie butt. Stella is a medium-energy girl, up to 3-mile walks on the weekend but doesn’t have to have the exercise; she’s good on a leash and fine in the car. She gets along fine with her foster sibling and does very well meeting new dogs in social situations (we don’t know about cats but see no reason it should be a problem). Stella is a calm, quite reserved dog but would really like to sleep on the bed and cuddle up on your lap – she wants to be with her person. When she came to us she had serious damage to parts of her skin and coat, but looks wonderful now and is ready to go. She takes inexpensive thyroid medication and medication to control “leaking” but has no other current health needs. Stella is one of those “you need to see to appreciate” dogs, she hopes you’ll ask about her! She is in foster care in Granite Falls.

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.

Lola 10/23/14

Lola 10/23/14

Lola is a big and beautiful girl looking for sweet love! 8 years old and 119 pounds, this gentle Boxer mix is overwhelmed in our shelter as she just recently lost her home due to landlord issues. Lola has previously lived with a little Yorkie and a bouncy Lab and did well with both. She enjoys belly rubs, easygoing walks and lots of snooze time. This happy girl would benefit from a loving family who will take her in and help her get her girlish figure back. Looking for a new best bud to cuddle up to this winter? Lola LOVES to cuddle!

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.

Nina 10/22/14

Meet beautiful Nina and her fabulous blue eyes! She is very well behaved and loves walks and especially tummy rubs. At 70 pounds, she needs to regain her girlish figure but would enjoy the “exercise” part of the diet-and-exercise routine. She gets along with other large breed dogs but finds small ones an irritant. Nina has had her hair cut short in the summer and is used to being very spoiled. To help the shelter, Old Dog Haven has done bloodwork and had her fatty tumor analyzed and she is in great health! Nina is probably 11-12 years old and very perky and personable – you’ll love her.

Miss Maddie 10/20/14

Miss Maddie 10/20/14

Miss Maddie is looking for her retirement home! This adorable wirehaired Jack Russell Terrier, 13-14 years old, has lived with other small dogs and cats. She is crate-trained and loves to cuddle and she knows quite a lot of commands; she loves to play fetch as well. She would like an adult-only quiet home.

Charles 10/20/14

Check out the smile of this little fella! Charles, an 11-year-old yorkie mix about 20 pounds, has plenty to smile about these days as he is busy making lots of new friends at the PAWS shelter and enjoying his daily walks. This happy boy gets along great with pretty much everyone he meets and will make some lucky family the perfect companion.

Sammie 10/18/14

Sammie 10/18/14

Darling Sammie is an 18-pound Poodle/Bichon mix who is about 8 years old. He is a sensitive sort of guy – not just in temperament but he has a sensitive belly. He was diagnosed with pancreatitis about a year ago so a low fat diet and a supplement are a must for him. Sammie is said to be afraid of big dogs but does fine with small, friendly dogs. He has been good with a family member’s cats who come to visit. Sammie has not been observed around children at all but more than likely a home with older kids would be best. Sammie can do stairs and go at least 5 hours without needing a potty break. He is very good on a leash and enjoys walks and playing with his squeaky toys. Sammie is not just a pretty face, he’s a smart dog too! He knows lots of fun tricks on command; he dances, heels, and when you say “BANG” he plays dead! His owner describes Sammie as “a cuddly, smart, loving dog that people are drawn to.” Sammie is posted for his owner in Seattle.

Mya, a 9-year-old Elder Bull weighing about 40 pounds, is a sweet older girl looking for snuggles! She is a calm and mellow lady who appreciates quiet, relaxing time at home with her favorite people. Mya does well with other dogs, and becomes very flirty with the right doggy companion, she is house trained too. She is friendly and playful and has a little spunk to her step. This gentle girl loves car rides and would be happy to head out on new adventures with you. If you are looking for an easy-going girl to keep you company, look no further than Mya!

Angel 10/16/14

Angel 10/16/14

Angel is a precious little “girl Westie” who is sweet and easy going. 10 years old and 15 pounds, Angel’s foster family finds her to be absolutely adorable and so easy to have around. She gets along with the other dogs, has learned the routine of the household, loves to go on walks and travels well in the car. Angel has perfect Westie ears (for the purists who want to know) but her ears have been kept in fringe like “angel wings”.

Angel is looking for a home in which she has a securely fenced yard, is not left outside alone while the family is away, and one where she will be engaged and considered part of the family. Westies like to dig; fresh mole hills, under fences and gates, or a freshly planted garden. They are known for letting pure instinct take over when a crow flies overhead or they spy a bunny hopping down the street. They will be gone like a shot so they must be on leash at all times when in an open environment. Westies need to be groomed every few weeks; your mileage may vary. Some need weekly bathing while others manage to stay pretty clean. They are prone to food allergies so grain-free foods with the novel protein sources such as duck and salmon are a good idea. Angel is in good health with full bloodwork and recent dental. Angel’s fosters are enjoying the calm and well behaved presence of this little girl, perhaps unlike some Westies! Angel is posted for Furbaby Rescue, and she is in Kirkland.

Peanut 10/16/14 *Adopted* 10/22/14

Peanut is a petite and precious little Cairn, 11 years old and 15 pounds, with a marvelous personality and wonderful nature. After she went through very thorough medical screening, Peanut was found to show early signs of renal disease. It is possible she could live out her Cairn life – she seem very healthy, active, and full of joy for life. Her new foster family says she is easy going, loved traveling by car, and settled right in without any fear, anxiety, or worry. She wags her tail pretty much every waking moment and gets along very well with all of the other dogs. Peanut would love a small or large fenced yard. She wants someone to take her for walks and be her friend. Cairns can be runners and diggers and barkers and rat killers. So far, she is a trotter, a wagger, a cuddler, and a very appreciative dinner guest. Peanut is posted for Furbaby Rescue, and she is in Kirkland.

MItzi 10/16/14 *Adopted* 10/22/14

Mitzi, a 12-year-old Cairn Terrier, 14 pounds, is a one-of-a-kind little girl. She is everything you could want in a Cairn but a little feminine version thrown in with some active throwback to her “people”. She can run and she loves to run. She is beautiful. Mitzi is crate-trained and prefers to go into her crate at night and seems housetrained. Mitzi is funny and will make you laugh. She is sweet and will make your heart melt. She is a good dog and has been very well loved and cared for her entire life.

Mitzi’s foster family adores her and loves throwing the ball for her. That’s her secret passion. Chasing balls. There is nothing about this dog to even let on that she is a senior so she’s going to need someone with a really good pair of walking shoes and a strong throwing arm. (A weak one will do, though. She doesn’t ask for much.) Mitzi is posted for Furbaby Rescue, and she is in Kirkland.

Jethro 10/15/14

Jethro 10/15/14

My name is Jethro, I am a 9-year-old Corgi mix. I was lost on the street and someone called the dog police who picked me up and delivered me to a shelter. For a short time, I was scared, but I held my head high hoping that my family would track me down. I didn’t bark, I didn’t whine, I didn’t hide and I didn’t try to start any fights … I just waited to see what would happen next. Well, nobody came to rescue me. The wonderful vet at the shelter took care of me but she also discovered that I have a large cancerous mast cell tumor and there is nothing that can be done. So here I am, looking for a forever hospice home, where I can rest in peace and live out the end of my days. Don’t be sad for me. I get along with other dogs, walk great on a leash and am a happy-go-lucky kind of guy. Please, can you open your heart and home to a senior in need?

At 50 pounds, 9-year-old Reba is a compact little lady who gets on great with other dogs and loves to play ball! A cattle dog/pit mix, she enjoys meeting folks of all ages (although she does appreciate the polite kiddos). Reba adores snuggle time and will happily give kisses. This girl is one smart cookie! She is fully housetrained and has wonderful leash manners. Reba is always ready for the next adventure, she loves going on car rides and spending days out and about socializing. This little lady will make some lucky family an excellent snuggle buddy and is looking for a kitty free home.

Odie 10/10/14

Odie, a 26-pound 14-year-old miniature schnauzer is so busy running around his foster mom’s house that he can barely slow down to pose for a photo. He’s a young-acting fellow, chasing and playing with other dogs, running through the maple leaves piling up on the ground …weeeeeee!

Odie is a senior dog who was owned by a senior and spent the last 9 years with her in an assisted living facility. He is a sweet, well mannered dog who was loved by the community and residents there. He’s had a dental and bloodwork, etc. so his health status is known. He is fostered in a “schnauzer family” now – they do like their own breed! He is a beautiful dog who should be snatched up by a senior Schnauzer lover or maybe even a first timer. He would certainly be an easy Schnauzer for one’s first. Odie is posted for Furbaby Rescue and is in Kirkland.

Toby 10/10/14 *Adoption Pending* 10/15/14

Toby is an 11-year-old Labrador Retriever/Shepherd/who knows what mix, who came to the shelter with a small wound under his right eye, a bit of arthritis, and a POWERFUL hankerin’ for GREENIES! (He gets a slightly crazed look in his eyes whenever they hold up his favorite treat!) He ended up at the shelter after his owner died. He is a mellow, well-behaved, housetrained gentleman who still has a desire to play – just a little – but really wants to be someone’s devoted companion. He likes riding in the car, likes hanging around with the volunteers at the shelter (both inside and outside), and doesn’t like bedtime too much until they toss a Greenie in his kennel. He should be their spokesdog, seriously.

Toby likes all the people he has met, and all the dogs he has met, too! He was pretty indifferent to, and even a little nervous about, the kitties during his cat test. He will make an easy-going, loyal friend. Are you a Seahawks-loving couch potato that would love to have a best buddy whose ears you can rub for luck during those “must-have” touchdown moments? Toby will be happy to fill that position in your family! Toby is looking for his perfect retirement home, where he can soak up all the love that is available and never, ever be without the promise of a GREENIE at bedtime! Toby is posted for Forget Me Not in Republic, Washington and is eligible for their SENIORS FOR SENIORS program (an adopter over the age of 65 can name their own adoption fee for Toby). Can’t go to Republic? Don’t let that stop you! They have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners.

Startlilght 10/10/14 *Adoption Pending* 10/15/14

Starlight is a 13 year old Australian Shepherd girl who ended up at a shelter after her owner died. She seems to have quite a bit of arthritis in her back legs and hips, and also seems to be completely deaf. She is, possibly as a result of the deafness, VERY attentive to the people around her – she wants to be with you all the time and doesn’t want to wander out of eyesight even in the dog yard. She enjoys daily massages, being brushed (and brushed and brushed and brushed), and slow walks around the yard.

Starlight gets along well with other dogs and loves all sorts of people. She does fine with cats, too, and is a very easy girl; she loves to snooze by the desk in the office whenever anyone is in there working. She will make an easy-going, loyal friend. She’d be thrilled to lie next to you on a comfy memory foam bed while you do crafts or watch TV, and would love to cuddle with you (but she can’t jump up onto beds or furniture, due to the arthritis, so for cuddles you’ll need a ramp, stairs, OR you will need to get down to Starlight’s level).

Starlight is anxious for her perfect retirement home, where she can soak up all the love that is available and reward you with a long sigh of contentment when you massage her JUST RIGHT, awwwwww.

Starlight is posted for Forget Me Not in Republic, Washington and is eligible for their SENIORS FOR SENIORS program (an adopter over the age of 65 can name their own adoption fee for Starlight).

Bubba Gump 10/08/14

Bubba Gump 10/08/14

Bubba Gump is a sweet and mellow 10-year-old English Bulldog who loves curling up on the couch or bed to watch a good movie with you! Bubba is housebroken and about 62 pounds. Bubba does need your help to get up onto the couch or bed and into the car as he has arthritis in his back legs and possibly his neck that he takes daily medication for. (Foster mom says: I’m a pro at taking my meds though!) He also needs a home with no stairs and prefers to be a only dog so he may get all the attention. He loves to follow you around the house as he just loves to be around his people.

Bubba Gump is on a med regimen consisting of Rimadyl, a joint supplement, L-Thyrox (to regulate his thyroid) and Tramadol for pain as needed. He also seems to have a finicky disc in his neck that has acted up on occasion and his foster mom can instruct on the strict rest and temporary meds if this does happen again. This is another reason Bubba Gump needs a home with no stairs and only very low/no impact sports. He can go for short walks on a harness only, no collar, and he loves car rides. You will need to be able to lift 62 pounds. Bulldog or similar breed experience would be good.

Bubba Gump is in the care of Bulldog Haven NW and being fostered in the Seatac area.

Aries 09/30/14

Aries 09/30/14

Aries is a 10-year-old, 27-pound girl with a pretty, puppy face. She looks to be a yellow Labrador/Beagle mix? Her life has been recently turned upside down due to no fault of her own. Aries is currently living with a kind family member who is doing her best to care for her but the resident female dog is not happy with Aries’ presence so Aries is spending a lot of time alone. She has been good with respectful children and would do best in a home with no other dogs or cats. Aries can stay home alone for a workday and can go 6+ hours without a potty break. She can do stairs and enjoys her walks. Aries LOVES to be with people, she is a pleaser who minds well. This sweet girl is ready for a new start on life. She is posted for her caretaker in Camano Island.

Caesar 09/26/14

Caesar 09/26/14

This beautiful German Shepherd, Caesar, is about 9 years old and is a giant teddy bear of a dog. He has shown some aggression toward other dogs since arriving at the Friday Harbor shelter, but he has lived with other dogs in his previous home and chalk his current behavior up to the stress of being in a shelter environment. With proper introductions, they think he’ll do well in a home with other dogs. However, they do not think he should live with cats or small children. He’s very affectionate and playful – but suffers from a bit of arthritis, so short walks are best for him. Caesar can be strong willed, but for the most part is just a great guy to hang out with. He’s best suited to a household with some previous German Shepherd or other large dog experience.

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.

Romeo 09/25/14 *Adoption Pending* 10/07/14

Romeo is a fluffy Pomeranian close to 12 years old, and weighing in at about 8 pounds. Romeo is shy at first, but once you earn his trust he is a very snuggly dog! He enjoys petting, belly rubs, lap time, and leisurely walks with his friends. Romeo gets along well with other dogs, but he doesn’t always like to share his food with them. And although Romeo has probably not lived with cats before, he would likely do well with them with a proper introduction. Romeo can be sensitive with handling and needs a dog-savvy home that can allow him to adjust slowly to a new environment. Romeo is looking for a home without children. If you have room in your home for this handsome little guy, then visit Homeward Pet Adoption Center and meet him – Romeo is sure to steal your heart!

McCoy

McCoy 08/27/14

McCoy:

Attention all Peke lovers! The Everett Animal Shelter has a Pekingese waiting for a new home. Both of McCoy’s human parents died very close together and now he is patiently waiting for new adventures. McCoy would love to go home with a family that understands the breed and, since he’s a little older, be able to provide for any medical needs. McCoy will need to be an only dog. He is used to living with older people in a calm home environment. McCoy is a little wobbly on his hind legs, and it is suspected that he has a slipped disc (back problems). Your veterinarian may recommend x-rays to get a better idea of what’s going on.

Lacy is a darling 9-year-old Cockapoo who weighs 27 pounds. Her previous owner was a senior who could no longer care for her. She was not socialized much but is now coming out of her shell some. Lacy is a bit timid when meeting dogs; so a home with quiet, mellow dogs would be best for her. She has never lived with or been exposed to cats or children. Lacey has some arthritis but is doing better now that she’s taking an anti-inflammatory. Lacey can do stairs and she’s great on a leash. She would love to get out for daily walks. Lacy can left alone for a work day if she has a potty break every 5-6 hours.

She has a silly, goofy side sometimes and she’s a wonderful companion who enjoys going for car rides. Lacy is posted for ARRF Animal Rescue in Cle Elum.

Charlotte 08/13/14

Charlotte 08/13/14

Charlotte is a spunky girl who’s always looking for fun and adventure! This adorable dog is just under 10 years old, but don’t let that number fool you; she has plenty of energy and spirit to spare! 16 pound Charlotte loves brisk walks and even going for moderate runs. She is very focused on working with her person and loves executing commands. She would love to find a home with someone that would like to continue her training, as she loves learning new things! Charlotte previously lived with another dog and could do so again if she finds the right match, however she’s known to be choosy about her canine companions and isn’t always fond of meeting new dogs. Charlotte would appreciate a cat-free home with a dog-experienced adult owner. No youngsters for her! If you have been looking for a lively little dog to join you on your walks, jogs, or hikes, be sure to visit Charlotte today.

Sally 07/13/14 *Adoption Pending* 10/02/14

Sally 07/13/14 *Adoption Pending* 10/02/14

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!

Sally is in Seattle and posted for Ribseys Refugees, ribseysrefugees@comcast.net.

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.

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

Kaycee 05/24/14 *Adoption Pending* 09/16/14

Kaycee 05/24/14 *Adoption Pending* 09/16/14

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.

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.

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.
