DOGS NEEDING ODH HOMES!

 

ScoutBeauregardTrixie

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: 08/31/14 – More dogs moving to ODH homes and new dogs will be added soon! See those still in need of homes here.

URGENT & SPECIAL NEED DOGS

Jack 08/26/14

Jack 08/26/14

Jack is an 8-year-old Chihuahua who weighs about 12 pounds. In the past he has lived with other dogs, cats and even ferrets! He will, however, chase a cat if it entices him to do so. Jack likes to go for car rides and get out for walks, and he has loved going to dog parks to meet other dogs. Currently Jack stays alone in an ex-pen while his owner is away without needing a potty break for about 6-8 hours. Young children make Jack very nervous, so he needs a home with kids 13 years and older only. H e is a sweet little guy who loves being groomed, getting “dressed” for cold weather and finding a sunny spot to bask in. Jack needs a new home as soon as possible! He is posted for his owner in Edgewood.

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

Bones 08/15/14 *Adopted* 08/31/14

Bones 08/15/14 *Adopted* 08/31/14

Bones is a miniature dachshund who is 14 years old. His current weight is about 9 pounds, up from when he was found emaciated due to neglect at the hands of his former owner. Bones was found out in the street a few times, dangerous because he is mostly blind and deaf. His owner agreed to give Bones to the people who kept finding him. Bones has been taken to a vet and given some TLC; he is now ready for a forever home as his Good Samaritans cannot give him a permanent home. In spite of his handicaps, Bones gets around very well once he learns the landscape. He has learned to get out to potty when he needs to, most all of the time. He lives with other dogs and ignores them, he has not been observed around cats or children under 10 years old. A home without steps is best for Bones, he has been fine when left alone in the company of the resident dogs. Ideally, his caretaker believes he’d be best off not being left alone for long periods of time. He sleeps through the night in a crate without an accident and he loves to play with toys. Bones is described by the kind people who took him in as “very sweet and gentle”. He is posted for his caretakers in Edmonds.

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, quiet 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 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.

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.

Cesare 08/27/14 *Adopted* 08/31/14

Cesare 08/27/14 *Adopted* 08/31/14

Cesare is a 12-year-old German Shepherd, 102 pounds, a wonderful senior who is still nice and active. He’s the perfect dog for a family of adults or with children over 10. Cesare has done fine with dogs at the shelter but has never lived with cats. Senior dogs are usually housebroken but very seldom can be left inside alone for 8 hours – a dogdoor or a dogwalker at least once during a normal workday should do the trick. Cesar is on an anti-inflammatory medication for arthritis; he is sensitive about being touched around his hindquarters because of it. Your vet will want to monitor his bloodwork while he’s on this medication and probably add a supplement. Please remember that medication and supplements can get pricey for a big boy like Cesare, so discuss options with your vet. Cesare was in his first home for 10 years and then has been been bounced around a bit through no fault of his own. His new family needs to be committed to keeping him happy and healthy for the rest of his years.

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

Cesare is posted for the Everett Animal Shelter, 425/257-6000.

Kane 08/27/14 – *Moved to an ODH Home*

*Moved to an ODH Home*

Kane is a 14-pound Rat Terrier, 10 years old, a very nice little gentleman! He’s very quiet with great manners. He will enjoy a calm household; older children should be OK, but the hustle and bustle of younger children scares him. He should do fine with other dogs and cats after a proper introduction. Kane came to the shelter with an allergic skin condition which is being treated; ask your veterinarian about safe flea control products and high quality dog food.

David & Rita 08/27/14

Attention all Peke lovers! The Everett Animal Shelter has a family of Pekingese 8-year-old cuties, just waiting for a new home. Both of their humans died very close together and now they are patiently awaiting their new adventures. McCoy is the ringleader, weighing in at 16 pounds. David (14 pounds) and Rita the cream beauty (20 pounds) complete the group. This bonded trio would love to go home together with a family that understands the breed and is able to provide for any medical needs. They are used to living with older people in a calm home environment.

Junior 08/26/14

Junior 08/26/14

Junior arrived at the Whidbey Island shelter as a stray. Believed to be about 10 years old, he is sweet, friendly and playful. Junior walks well on a leash and loves to frolic in the little wading pool in the play yard. He also seems to know how to play fetch. Although he has some gray around his muzzle, this very sweet boy is young at heart. His owner was located but has not come in to get him so he is in need of a home. A Labrador mix, Junior weighs 57 pounds.

Treats, walks and soft beds are his favorite things. Brock has lived with cats. He does fine with small dogs, but has not lived with them. Brock needs a home without children.

Reba 08/18/14

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.

Izzy 08/15/14

Izzy 08/15/14

Isabelle or “Izzy” for short, is an 8-year-old Beagle. She’s a pretty girl who weighs 30 pounds. Izzy has lived with another dog but is standoffish at first when meeting new dogs. She has lived with cats and kids but should only go to a home with older kids who will respect her. Izzy can stay alone for a workday and go without a potty break for about 8 hours. She has had some back pain more than likely because a child landed on her. She can still do stairs but it’d be wise to not have her do too many. Izzy would love to go for short walks, she does well on a leash and knows some basic commands. At this time Izzy is living outside or in her family’s garage; she would really like to live inside a home with people again. Izzy is a companion dog; she is a snuggly girl who would love to be a lap dog again. She is posted for her owners in Monroe.

Lacy 08/13/14

Lacy 08/13/14

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.

Pup 07/31/14

Pup 07/31/14

Hi, I’m Pup. I’m a 14 year old, 4 pound, Toy Fox Terrier with 100% terrier personality. My first person passed away after being sick a long time, leaving me withdrawn, scared and alone. My foster moms have worked with me, but I will need your patience and encouragement to change the things that we can, and accept what’s just going to be.

– If you have no or just a few stairs and a fenced yard where I can go potty and hang out, that would be ideal.

– If you have a pack of smaller dogs and maybe cats who won’t expect me to play, and don’t jump on me, and can show me the ropes, I’d like that.

– If you have a heated floor or warm dog bed where I can hang out, I’d be in heaven.

– If you have experience with terriers or other similar personality breeds, we’ll both benefit from that.

I love just hanging out. I am not snuggly, but I do enjoy “being near” you, and “helping” in the yard, by crawling over and under you as you try to work. I like sleeping in my warm room with my blankies, water, and a potty pad (because I can’t always hold it overnight). I’m good at ‘sit’ and I’m learning ‘touch’ and ‘spin’ and ‘here.’ I’m figuring out that food is a cool reward, and take my treats politely.

Do you have room in your pack and your heart for me? I don’t take up much room, I don’t eat much, and I just want to enjoy a life of hanging out.
Please fill out an application and let’s meet if our profiles match!

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

Pup (SAS ID #14-18201) is relaxing in a Seattle Animal Shelter (SAS) foster home. If you would like to meet her, you must submit a Dog Adoption Application to SAS.  Download the *application* 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 (open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 6pm, and closed holidays).

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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. She gets along well with the other greyhound in her foster home. She is very timid with children and has nipped a young child, so we do not recommend her with children. Kiera tested as very trainable in cat testing, but has never lived with a cat. She is in Woodinville, Washington. Kiera is posted for Greyhound Pets, Inc.

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

Check is a sweet, happy, playful and loving ex-racing brindle greyhound who is 10 years old and weighs around 60 pounds. She just loves being with people and is still very active for her age. Check was a brood mom and would do best in a home without children or cats. She occasionally likes to play with toys. She has done well with other greyhounds, but can be dominant. Although she has done well meeting small dogs, we do not recommend that she live with them full time. Check is just darling and will melt your heart. She is in Woodinville, Washington. Check is posted for Greyhound Pets Inc.

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.

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

For more information on adopting or fostering me, email my shelter friends at adoptions@wcghs.org! Lots of love and thanks, Kona.

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
