Dogs Available for Adoption

DOGS NEEDING ODH HOMES!

 

 

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: 09/15/14 – More dogs moving to ODH homes and new dogs will be added soon! See those still in need of homes here.


What’s going on!

*  Missy & Gidgett, Bailey, Addie, and Pepper are new Adoptable Dogs!
*  Eddie is adopted!
*  Ren, Lulu, Etta, CoCo, and Moon have been added to Final Refuge dogs for your sponsoring pleasure!

Addie 09/17/14

Addie 09/17/14

Beautiful Addie is an 8-year-old cocker spaniel, 25 pounds, who suffered really awful neglect and has come through it with her wonderful personality and loving nature intact. She does really well on leash and in the car, gets along with dogs of any size, has great house manners and loves to walk, run and explore outside. Addie is very friendly and affectionate, loves to cuddle and would love to sit on your lap. She came into a shelter with long neglected severe ear infections causing huge damage, the worst the surgeon had ever seen; she had been in tremendous pain but was even then a joy to work with. After having both ear canals surgically removed she will never have infections again and the pain is gone! She still seems to be able to hear fairly well. The surgery made some inflammation in her facial nerves which has kept her from blinking and caused a little facial droop; both issues are improving and one eye can now blink. She needs frequent eye lubricant until the other recovers – we are hopeful that it all will resolve in the next couple of months. She has had a dental and is healthy in all other respects. Addie is a really lovely dog who will charm anyone who meets her – and don’t forget the super cute cocker wiggle-butt… She is in foster care in Arlington.

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.

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.

Bailey 09/17/14

Bailey 09/17/14

Bailey is an adorable terrier mix who weighs about 25 pounds and is between 12 and 13 years old. She can be choosy about which dogs she likes; currently she lives with a female dog she doesn’t care for but she was fine with a male dog in the past. Bailey has not ever lived with cats to the current owner’s knowledge, and kids who are 8 years old and over are preferred. She is crate trained and can stay alone without needing a potty break for up to 8 hours. As often happens as dogs age, she has lost her hearing. Bailey does very well on a leash and she can still do stairs. She is hoping to find a new lap to cuddle up into very soon. Bailey is posted for her caretaker in Port Orchard. ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

Pepper 09/15/14

Pepper 09/15/14

Pepper is an 8-year-old Border Collie who weighs 65 pounds. He was taken in by very kind people who have watched him since puppyhood in a home where he was very neglected. These good people have worked very hard to get Pepper healthy and now he is ready for his forever home. He is a very active dog who will make a great exercise partner for someone. Pepper loves hiking and regular “fetch sessions”; he will happily retrieve a ball, stick or Frisbee for you. He will “tell you” when he can’t reach his ball under the couch by talking to you. He currently lives with another dog and is fine with other dogs but he’d have no problem being an only dog. Pepper lives with cats currently and is OK with them as long as they don’t try to take his food. He has never been observed around kids. Pepper can stay alone for a work day without needing a potty break. Pepper’s favorite thing to do is ride along in a car with you and watch traffic in the rear view mirror. His caretaker says every so often he will look at you while they’re driving with a smile on his face and give you a look that says, “Can you believe how AWESOME this is?!” What a dog! Pepper’s one quirk is he doesn’t like “slippery” floors: he just won’t walk on anything that’s not carpeted. He will walk on linoleum that has texture but anything else he won’t. There’s an easy fix: you can put carpet runners down for him. (His caretaker says the bonus of this quirk is that it keep him out of the kitchen!) In spite of his past neglect, Pepper has remained sweet and is a genuinely happy boy. He will make someone a wonderful companion. Pepper is posted for his rescuers in Olympia.

Missy & Gidgett 09/13/14

Missy & Gidgett 09/13/14

(ADOPTERS CHANGED THEIR MIND)

Missy & Gidgett

These two girls are a really bonded pair left at a shelter, anxious for a home together to finish their lives. Missy (on the left) is a cattle dog/Australian Shepherd, 14 years old, 45 pounds. She has arthritis and yeasty skin, most likely from poor diet and neglect. She is more shy than Gidgett at least in the shelter. Gidgett (on the right) is supposed to be a Corgi but perhaps a Corgi/Miniature Australian Shepherd mix. She is 11 years old and weighs 25 pounds; she is quite outgoing. Both seem to be housetrained, both will probably do best without stairs though a few steps may be OK.

ODH has not met these dogs; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.

Miss Marples 09/11/14

Miss Marples 09/11/14

Miss Marples, an 8-year-old Chihuahua weighing 5 pounds…. this little one could not be a sweeter dog. Miss Marples is a very quiet, loving, snuggly girl. She is outgoing, happy and eager to please. She does love to nap! and going on short walks are a big plus. She loves adventures and would enjoy going with you on outings, but is happy to wait at home for you too. She is potty trained and gets along well with dogs of all sizes, and cats too, She loves men and women alike. Although she lived in the same family since just a wee one, her teeth were not well cared for and alas, she has no teeth left. A little tongue to the side, makes for some adorable character! Oh.. and she is a smiler! Who does not love that! This is a perfect little dog.

Georgie Porgie puddin’ and pie! Kissed the girls and made them… just as happy as can be! This big boy – 80-pounds of 8-year-old mastiff mix – is the epitome of gentle giant! He loves to snuggle and give kisses. He really perks up around other pups and enjoys a good romp. Georgie just recently spent time in a foster home and loved the two young kids and he did great with their kitty and other dog. He is well behaved, fully house trained and has wonderful house and leash manners. On super hot days they took him to the lake and he loved the water! Looking for a perfectly easy-going best bud? Look no further….Georgie is your boy!!

Jayd 09/07/14

Jayd is a lovely mixed breed girl who is 12 years old and 37 pounds. She is a Frisbee fanatic, her owners say she needs 2 in fact: 1 for indoor play and the other for outdoor play. Jayd also loves tennis balls. She can do stairs and she’s good on a leash. Jayd knows quite a few commands as well – what an impressive dog! Jayd currently lives with another dog and she is social with other dogs once she is introduced. She would do best with dogs more her speed – no young hyper dogs! Jayd has never lived with a cat or been observed around kids. She can stay alone for a work day without needing a potty break.

Hailey 09/06/14 *Adoption Pending* 09/15/14

Hailey 09/06/14 *Adoption Pending* 09/15/14

Hailey Lab is a 13-year-old chocolate Lab mix who weighs about 55 pounds. Her family describes her as “a good companion and faithful family dog.” Sadly, family changes force them to find a new home for Hailey. She has lived with another dog and a cat; she does fine with both but prefers calm, friendly dogs like herself who will not crowd her space. Hailey has helped raise a child but at this point her in life she really should go to a home with older kids who will respect her. As to be expected at this age, Hailey does have some arthritis. She can still do stairs and she love to walk about 20-30 minutes a day at a leisurely pace. This lovely girl does well on a leash and she knows some basic commands; she is eager to please. Hailey takes a daily joint supplement to keep her joints healthy. She can go about 6-8 hours without a potty break and stay alone if necessary without anxiety. Her owner has always been at home with her so she’s hoping another home can be found for Hailey where she doesn’t have to be left alone long hours while her people are away at work. Hailey is an easy-going senior girl who really doesn’t ask for much but she will certainly make someone’s life richer. She is posted for her owner in Woodinville.

Elf 09/06/14

Elf 09/06/14

Elf is a jaunty and solidly built bull terrier mix who came to the shelter as a stray after being found in Oak Harbor. He is friendly, energetic, and active. This little guy may be smaller than his picture portrays; he weighs only 32 lb. Shelter staff estimate his age at 7-8 years. Elf is looking for a home with no cats or other animals, and, because of limited vision, needs an adult home or one with older children. He does take medication, but how could you possibly resist that face? Little Elf has been at the shelter far too long, he’s so ready to make you smile!

Special Considerations:

  • Has special needs
  • Needs medication
  • Needs a home without small children
  • Needs a home without cats

Koko & Penny 09/02/14

Koko & Penny 09/02/14

KoKo and Penny are 8-year-old Lhasa Apso dogs, 16 and 18 pounds, who must be adopted together. Much about them will make you smile! KoKo and Penny listen to you when they are called. Talk about quiet and easygoing! Until you come home and they are ecstatic to see you. Reports are that both dogs are good in the car. They like walks and at night they sleep quietly in their crate….together… because they want to be together. No sharing your bed. Did you just find yourself smiling again about these two stunning red and white Lhasa? KoKo and Penny are gentle, happy dogs, great with other dogs, and will fill your life with smiles and joy. Both dogs love being near you but have no problems going off and snoozing elsewhere as long as they know where you are. In the foster home housetraining habits are just fine. Both dogs love the fenced yard and roaming freely about the grass. They’ll go outside to take care of personal needs and then seem to be fascinated with rolling around in the yard. Their foster mom hopes for a fenced yard for these two. KoKo and Penny originally lost their home because the mom became ill and they haven’t had much stability since. The foster mom believes that these two will adjust quickly to the person who smiles at them and asks “Would you be willing to come home with me for the rest of our lives?” Be prepared to see two very cute smiling faces looking back at you. If you don’t believe dogs can smile – just wait until you meet KoKo and Penny. ONE CAUTION!!! Once you meet Koko and Penny, be prepared to not be able to wipe the smile from your face.

Skippy 09/02/14

Skippy 09/02/14

Skippy is a dear little Bichon Frise, 10 years old and 16 pounds, who lost his owner due to health issues. Since coming into rescue he has had some minor health issues taken care and his teeth cleaned up. He’s in great shape now and ready to find his forever home. Skippy would do well in a home with either a single person or an older family interested in a sweet, quiet dog who is not very active. He definitely loves as much attention as his people will give. But he also is able to settle down and lie comfortably on his own while the family does their thing. He seems tolerant and interested in children but he just wouldn’t have the energy to have them play with him a lot – he needs a quieter space most of the time. He would really enjoy a home with another dog, if possible, especially if he would be left alone for long periods during the day. He does well when left at home alone with the other dogs. Such a gentleman! Skippy loves to snuggle and be near you whenever you’re in the house. He loves to take (slow) walks on a leash and is gentle when meeting other dogs and people. He rides very quietly in the car and although he would love to sleep in bed with his people, in his foster home he has accepted sleeping in his own bed on the floor in the bedroom. He has a slight heart murmur as is common in an older dog but his Senior Blood Panel came back great and the vet has no concerns about him. Skippy is an adorable little fellow!

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.

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!

Pup enjoys watermelon with her cream cheese treat 9/14

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.

20140912_152133

Pup 9/12/14

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. I am super duper smart!

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!

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.

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.

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.

Kiera 03/13/14

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.

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.

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.
