⇒ Why Adopt An Older Dog?      Some thoughts


PLEASE NOTE:

•  Adoption is different than Final Refuge at Old Dog Haven. An adoption means the dog becomes yours, you have ownership and are responsible for the dog’s care including veterinary expenses. Final Refuge means the dog is under ODH’s care, in an ODH foster home that will care for the dog for the rest of its life; with ODH coordinating and paying for vet care and medications.

•  Most of these dogs are in western Washington State.

This page has two categories of adoptable dogs:

  1. ODH adoptable dogs are already in Old Dog Haven foster homes, and are fit enough to be adopted out permanently (versus Final Refuge, where the dog remains at an ODH Final Refuge Foster Home).
  2. Dogs at shelters, other rescues, or with individual owners are looking for a new home. Most of the adoptable dogs listed on this page are in this category and are not in ODH’s care. The shelter, rescue or owner makes the decision about adoptions. ODH is only making referrals to help these dogs find homes.

ADOPTING ONE OF THESE DOGS:

For dogs in ODH homes:

  • Please complete the ‘Adopters Questionnaire‘ and send to our office so we know your particular interests and situation.
  • Each dog is different and will need a different kind of home.
  • ODH will not transport dogs outside the Western Washington area.  Potential adopters must meet the dog, once adoption application is approved.
  • A minimum tax-deductible donation of $95 is requested, more if you are able. (We have given our dogs very extensive vet care thanks to the generosity of our donors and your contribution will help the next old canine.)

For dogs posted for owners, shelters, or other rescue groups:

  • If posted for another group, please use the contact information provided in the profile.
  • If posted for the owner, please email placement@olddoghaven.org and we’ll put you in touch.

Interested in sponsoring a dog? Please check our Final Refuge (permanent foster) dogs.

If you adopt a dog featured on this page – please feel free to email a photo of your new friend with his or her new family to webmaster@olddoghaven.org for possible use here.

Wilma 02/22/15

Wilma 02/22/15

Wilma

Wilma

Wilma

Wilma the pug! is a big beautiful girl, about 10 years old and 26 pounds of charm and personality. (And pug noises…)
She gets along extremely well with the other dogs in her foster home and enjoys meeting new dogs, likes cats, and seems to be in love with older children as well as pretty much all humans. Wilma is deaf and needs drops for “dry eye” (so common in this breed) for the rest of her life; she is active and easily up to climbing stairs or a 30-minute daily walk which she loves. She is very well housebroken and learned the dogdoor quickly and she LOVES the car. Wilma is still anxious about her person being gone but that is improving as she settles in. She would really prefer a home where people are around a good deal or she can go along to work, and she would probably be happier with a dog buddy for times when humans are gone.

This girl is sweet, very outgoing and loves to explore life. A very trusting and all-around happy little dog, Wilma is loved by everyone who meets her – you will too. Wilma is in foster care in Shoreline.

Diego 01/20/15

Diego

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

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

Girl 02/27/15

Girl 02/27/15

Girl

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

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

Girl is posted for the Multnomah County Animal Services shelter in Troutdale, Oregon, 503/988-73878 or www.multcopets.org.

Spike 02/27/15

Spike

Check out the big smile on Spike! This chow mix, 10 years old and 74 pounds, is one happy teddy-bear boy who enjoys hanging out with friends and getting plenty of treats. Spike is fully housetrained and has wonderful house manners, he recently arrived at the PAWS shelter as his owner passed away and he is still settling in. This fluffy boy likes to meet and greet other dogs but prefers polite doggy friends who enjoy just hanging out and does better with the ladies. Spike is best suited in a home with children 12 years and older and he needs a family who loves him!

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

Zero 02/27/15

Zero 02/27/15

Zero

Zero is a sweet 12-year-old lab/hound mix looking for a loving, relaxed retirement home. Zero loves to cuddle, he puts his head right into your arms so you can rub his face. He loves it so much that he’ll start to groan! Zero would prefer living with a mellow canine who won’t be too rambunctious or try to bully him. He would also do well with a cat. Any children should be older and respectful of Zero and not try to climb all over him. Zero would enjoy a nice walk around the block every day and then just curl up in your lap for a cuddle and a rub down. He would do best in a relaxed and low-key home that won’t be too into the hustle and bustle. If you are looking to give a sweet old boy a great retirement home, he is currently in Bellingham, Washington at the Whatcom Humane Society.

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

Baxter 02/25/15

Baxter 02/25/15

Baxter

9-year-old Baxter is an 18-pound mix of something REALLY cute. Your guess is as good as ours! Baxter is quite the “people person”; he is a cheerful, friendly guy who would do best in a home with respectful children 6 and over. He is not fond of other dogs or cats, however, so he needs to go to a home where he will be the only animal. Baxter can stay alone for a work day and reportedly can go over 8 hours without needing a potty break. He’s good on a leash and loves going for walks and runs. Baxter has great fun playing fetch too. Not only does he have the looks, he’s also smart. Baxter can do tricks and learns new ones easily. He sounds like such a fun dog! You’d not need another animal with Baxter in the house (probably what he must think)! Baxter is in Issaquah, Washington.

Nadia 02/23/15

Nadia 02/23/15

Nadia

Nadia is a 10 year old, 68 pound Doberman/Border Collie mix. She is a truly amazing dog; she was certified with the Yakima County Sheriff’s Department Search and Rescue K9 team to find lost hunters and hikers in the woods. She and her handler were credited with finding 2 lost hikers. If that’s not impressive enough, Nadia also saved her disabled owner’s life on multiple occasions by waking him and alerting him to take his heart medications. All of this is great; however, she is not good with other dogs, she will chase cats and she should only go to a home with dog-savvy children aged 10 and over. Nadia is an active girl; she loves to run, play ball and go for walks on a daily basis. She is not a fan of being left alone for long periods of time but she can reportedly stay alone without anxiety. Nadia can go about 4 hours without needing a potty break. She has much to offer a new family: is friendly, smart, snuggly and well-trained. Nadia is currently in Selah WA.

Toby 02/23/15

Toby 02/23/15

Toby

13-year-old Toby is a Miniature Poodle who weighs 12 pounds. He was adopted 2 years ago as a companion to a senior woman. Unfortunately she is gravely ill and she can no longer care for Toby. Sweet Toby is a very loving dog, he just wants to be with his people. He does fine with other dogs, he could actually care less about them. Toby has never been observed around cats . He does fine with kind children. Toby is described as “agile”; he can do stairs and does very well on a leash but he does not require a lot of exercise. Since he became accustomed to staying with someone who was retired, he would really do best in a similar situation. He does not like driving in a car, however, so he will not make a good ride-along buddy. Toby can reportedly go up to 6 hours without needing a potty break. When you return from your outing or work, Toby will greet you with GREAT joy; he will grab his toys and run around and shake them! Who wouldn’t want to receive such a welcome home? Dear Toby is ready and waiting for his new lap to keep warm. He is currently in Seattle.

Zoe 02/23/15

Zoe 02/23/15

Zoe

Zoe is an adorable, sweet, playful 13 year old purebred Jack Russell Terrier. Her owner went into assisted living and sadly had to give up her dog. Zoe is very affectionate and loves to take walks, snuggle, and play fetch. She has some mild weakness in her rear end from a previous disc injury, but it doesn’t slow her down much, and it’s not at all painful. Otherwise she is very healthy. She is current on all vaccines, microchipped, and just had bloodwork and a dental – she likes to have her teeth brushed! Zoe would be best as an only dog, although she may get along with a dog that doesn’t challenge her. She is great with cats. She would be fine with children over 8 years old. She would really love a home with a fenced yard so she can run around and be a terrier. And yes, she really is that cute! Zoe is posted for Furbaby Rescue and is fostered in Kirkland.

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

Chloe & Juju 02/22/15

Chloe & Juju 02/22/15

Chloe & Juju

Chloe is a 8-9 year old, 4 pound teacup Chihuahua. She is very attached to Juju and follows him everywhere. She is very shy at first but in time will warm up to you and she is low energy. Both Chloe and Juju walk well on a leash. These two dogs need to go together because they have been together their entire lives. They are kennel trained and stay at home for 6-8 hours a day. I have been leaving them out during the day and they do not get into anything. Juju and Chloe live with 7 dogs and one confident cat and they all get along. They would also be fine in a house with kids old enough to understand how gentle you have to be with them. Whoever gets these dogs will have two great little companions and all the hard work is already done. You will just get to enjoy them both.

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

Chloe & Juju are posted for Alternative Humane Society at 360-671-7445; alternativehumanesociety@gmail.com and is in Bellingham.

Skylar 02/22/15

Skylar 02/22/15

Skylar

My name is Skylar and I’m a Coonhound. I am an affectionate 8-year-old 58-pound boy who loves to greet my people with wiggles and a smile, and will stay with you all day if you let me! I may be 8 but I don’t feel old, I can run with the young dogs and have no problem keeping up. I will need a home without other dogs because I can be socially awkward, though the right dog might be an exception. I also will need a home without cats because I want to chase them. I can be in a home with older kids, I love kids! but I’m a large boy so they’ll have to be able to handle my size.

ChiChi 02/22/15 *Adopted* 02/27/15

ChiChi

ChiChi is a sweet, mellow cuddlebug, whose favorite thing in the world is to be held. She was born to be a lap dog! ChiChi is about 10 years old (not so terribly old in chihuahua terms). She’s had a dental (and down to 2 cute little teeth left… soft food or tiny kibble for ChiChi!), spay and mammary mass removal. There were too many mammary masses to remove all, so she had several removed and then sent off for biopsy. The removed tumors were BENIGN – good news! Her remaining tumors could be removed later if they grow or become problematic, but it will likely not be necessary… she is just a “lumpy, bumpy” girl. Her senior blood panel looks great . She looks a little bit like “Frankenpuppy’s Monster” right now with all her stitches, but they will be coming out the first week of March and then she will just have some cool scars to talk about to the other dogs.

ChiChi is friendly with other dogs, and adores all people. She will be fine with cats and kids, too – she moves slowly and we have yet to hear her bark at all! She has a great personality, and her funny, goofy side comes out when she is comfortable in her surroundings. She’s the perfect little chihuahua for people who didn’t think they liked chihuahuas!

She is crate trained but would prefer to sleep in bed under the covers with you. ChiChi is currently… um, how to put this… well, I’ll just say it – FAT. She is fat. There are rolls of fat on her neck and back. She would enjoy getting some exercise with you – nothing too grand, she *is* only a little girl, but she could enjoy a couple of brisk short walks each day to help her regain her girlish figure. She weighs about 13 pounds right now (down a pound in the past month, good for her!), and should probably weigh between 8-10 pounds ideally… so slow weight loss to take off about 30% of her current weight would be really good for her. It will also help with the little bit of stiffness/arthritis she has in her legs when she first gets up.

ChiChi would be a great go-anywhere kind of dog; she is quiet, polite, and easy to carry. She has a funny little way of sticking her tongue out – a side effect of her tooth issues, no doubt – and she just charms everyone she meets with her silly, loveable face and those big bat ears.

ChiChi is posted for the Forget-Me-Not shelter in Republic, Washington who offer a 30-day money-back trial adoption period. Can’t come 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.

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

Jewelee 02/21/15 *Adoption Pending* 02/24/15

Jewelee

Jewelee is an 8-year-old, 65 pound, truly lovely mixed breed girl. Six years ago she was adopted from a prison training program, she is a smart girl! Jewelee knows how to jump through hoops, give high five, will retrieve a ball and when you tell her to “Get Busy” she will go potty. Jewelee has lived with other dogs and she is reportedly social when she meets new dogs. She has never lived with cats. Jewelee is good with kids age 8 and over. Jewelee would really love to get more exercise than she is currently getting, she is an active girl and is good on a leash. Doesn’t she sound like a FUN dog?! She is an affectionate girl who loves people, she likes to please and be rewarded with treats. Jewelee can stay alone for up to 6 hours without needing a potty break. We would imagine she’s a dog who could easily learn how to use a dog door. Jewelee is in currently in Lake Stevens, ready to be your new best friend.

Irish 02/20/15 *Adoption Pending* 02/23/15

Irish

Hello! Allow me to introduce myself: My name is Irish and I am looking for a forever home. I am an 11-year-old black Labrador Retriever. I had a wonderful human mom my whole life but she passed away. My mom’s friend promised her that she would find me a good and loving home. Now as I said, mom loved me but probably a little too much with food. I was overfed and so the very kind person that took me in has been working on a diet and weight loss regime. I now weigh 112 pounds and I certainly need to lose more weight. I cannot do stairs well due to my weight and arthritis. Going for walks is not easy but really necessary. I need to build endurance while I continue to lose weight. But who likes to talk about their weight?? I live with other dogs now and I am very patient with them, especially the annoying puppy who bothers me constantly. If I have a say in it, I’d rather have a home without a puppy. I would like another canine friend who is more my speed. Cats and kids don’t bother me as long as the kids are kind, they can pet me (I like that) and don’t hang on me. Who likes that?! What I do like, well LOVE, are people and doing what the nice lady who is caring for me calls my “Happy Dance”. I do a two-step with my front feet, turn my rear end towards you and beat my tail so hard I could knock you over! I also really like getting my heiney rubbed, full body hugs and being brushed. I can go for about 4 hours without a potty break but I’ll bet I could learn to use a dog door if you needed me to. I am a smart boy, I was trained to be a service dog after all. The nice lady who takes care of me now has a very big heart but not a big home or wallet so she’s hoping to find someone who can give me a home and make sure that I have the vet care I need and will need as time goes on. You know that saying, “The Luck of the Irish”? Well, I’d like to think I could bring some of that to whoever gives me a home. I know I will certainly feel lucky!” Irish is posted for his caretaker in Spokane.

Chelsea *Adopted* 02/23/15

Chelsea

Can you stand the cuteness? Chelsea is an 11-year-old, 8-pound Pomeranian. She was a companion dog to a woman who sadly and suddenly passed away. Chelsea now lives with another small dog and does fine with him. She has never lived with or been observed around cats. She is excellent with gentle children age 10 and over. Since Chelsea was a constant companion to her previous owner, her hope is a home where she is not alone much or with someone who can take her to work. She can go without a potty break for about 3 hours. Chelsea can do stairs and is great on a leash but she does not require much exercise. Her favorite activity is to watch TV while sitting on a lap. This little doll has so much love to give and is ready to go to her new home. Chelsea is in Mt. Vernon WA.

Susie 02/13/15

Susie 02/13/15

Susie

Look at that face: Susie, 10 pounds and 8 years old. She’s simply sweet, adorable, funny as heck, cute and loveable. Susie is part Poodle and part Chihuahua and until she was groomed she looked like a black “woolly bear” caterpillar with tiny little legs. Susie had a full senior veterinary assessment panel and was found to be in excellent health other than a yucky mouth, which has been fixed up now. She is lively and curious like we might expect a Chihuahua to be and is loyal and at red alert when she hears intruders like many small poodles. She is not a barky dog by any means but she cannot live in an apartment or condo where she will hear what she thinks are intruders all day long and bark at them. Susie has her own bed and she arranges things within it “just so”. She loves to go on walks and could certainly learn to potty outside but she is definitely a potty pad user at this time. Her foster family absolutely adores this dog.

Angel 02/05/15

Angel 02/05/15

Angel

Angel is a 9 year old Siberian Husky/Beauceron mix who weighs 90 pounds. He would like to go to a home with another dog for companionship – either a female or a neutered, friendly male. Angel needs a potty break about every 6-8 hours and he can stay home while you’re away as long as he has a doggy friend to spend the time with. When Angel was a puppy he was exposed to cats but it is unknown how he is with them now. Because of his size he should go to a home with older children; Angel is “too much dog” for a small child. Just because he is considered a senior at his age, don’t let that fool you! Angel is a strong dog who can do stairs, he enjoys going for walks and hikes. He is not getting the amount of attention and exercise he’d like currently, so the hope is he will find a home where he can get more of both. The beauty of a dog Angel’s age is: once he’s had his exercise he is happy to chill out and be a calming presence in your home. Angel is currently in Snoqualmie.

Maggie 02/05/15

Bailey & Maggie

*ADOPTION PENDING*

Maggie and Bailey are bonded “sisters”. No, they did not come from the same mother but they have lived most all of their lives together. Both girls are said to be at least 8 years old. Bailey is a Border Collie mix who weighs 35 pounds. Maggie is a Basset mix who weighs 40 pounds. Maggie can see very little and she does not hear much. For that reason Maggie should only go to a home with other dogs who are friendly and non-threatening. Maggie has ignored the cats she’s lived with. Due to her deficits, Maggie relies heavily on Bailey but there is something very touching about watching bonded dogs like this interact. Bailey is good with other dogs, and she is fine with the cats she’s lived with as long as they stay away from her. Bailey has been known to chase cats, squirrels and even deer if given the opportunity. Both girls have lived around children but they would prefer an adult-only home now that they have reached a mature age. Bailey and Maggie would really enjoy getting on daily walks. The girls are fine to stay together while you are away for a work day and they can do stairs. They are said to be able to go without a potty break for about 8 hours. Maggie and Bailey are sweet girls who are in Bellingham waiting for their forever home together.

Jack

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

Tucker

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

Opie 01/23/15

Opie – the Black Lab mix

Opie’s enthusiasm for life is heartwarming: he leaps into the air for dinner and loves to go for walks. When Pasado’s first received Opie, he was malnourished and weak from being tethered outside for most of his life, but he was still so full of love and joy. Even though he was malnourished and thin, his tail never stopped wagging! Today Opie is happy and healthy, and we’re ready to see him in the loving home he deserves. Opie is very friendly and true to his breed, he has tons of enthusiasm. He loves to sleep, but when he’s awake he is always in high spirits. He would love to have a big backyard where he can run around and feel like a pup again. He has negative reactions to other dogs and cats, so Opie would do best as a single dog. If you have a space in your home for this sweet senior boy, Opie is more than ready to find his forever home. Opie is courtesy-posted for Pasado’s Safe Haven in Sultan, Washington.

Pookah 01/21/15

Pookah

Pookah is currently in a foster home where she is living very nicely with several small dogs, multiple cats, and children under the age of 10 years old. She is sweet and gentle to all – what an awesome dog! Her foster Mom reports that she is house-trained and a joy to have in the home. She will happily sleep in a dog bed or in a crate if your prefer. This lovely lady is just looking for a caring forever home where she will be lavished with comfort and love during her golden years. She has a low to moderate energy level and she is content with meandering around the fenced yard or with some short leash walks throughout the day, but stairs are a challenge. She always welcomes you with her smiling face and wagging tail and she just lights up around people. She even enjoys playing with toys! Pookah is currently in her foster home for the Humane Society of Southwest Washington in Vancouver.

Frankie

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

It is unknown how Bonnie would do with a cat but her rescuer would be willing to check for that. She’s good with humans of all ages after being a little shy at first. Bonnie loves to go for walks and does well on a leash. Bonnie is described as “a well-behaved girl who will appreciate a home with lots of love, attention, activity and a yard with a fence”.

Badget

Badger

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

Gracie 12/26/14

Gracie 12/26/14

Gracie

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

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

Chance 11/06/14

Chance 11/05/14

Chance

Hi there! I’m Chance, an adorable (seriously — just look at my pics!) 8-year-old Chow Chow mix.  I hope these pictures convey what a sweet, lovable guy I am and that I’m ready to find my forever family. During my stay with my foster parents it’s been revealed that I have Cushing’s disease, which means l’ll require ongoing medical care — my foster parents can tell you what this entails. I’m a pretty low-key guy – a couple trips to the local fire hydrant is just about all the exercise I need. I love earning yummy treats during training. My foster parents say I at the end of my basic training course I aced both AKC’s Canine Good Citizen and Canine Good Citizen Advanced tests. I also love being with people! I wonder what “Velcro” means? I hear that word a lot when my name is mentioned. Because of my size (77 lbs) and the occasional exuberance that I exhibit when I think you have a tasty treat, any children in my new home should be at least 10 years old and dog-savvy. I may do okay with other dogs or felines in my new home. Give me a chance – I promise you’ll be glad you did!

Butkus & Abby 03/28/14

Butkus & Abby 03/28/14

Butkus and Abby

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.

For more information about Abby and Buck contact nwbr.adoptions@gmail.com or call 5090-607-4740. Adoption applications are available at www.nwboxerrescue.org.

Twinkie

Twinkie

Twinkie

I’m Twinkie, a Chihuahua of about 9 years. When I arrived into rescue it was quickly learned that I was easy to care for but that I needed to be monitored so I didn’t have too many treats and get too “round” which is a nice way of saying “fat”. *sigh* Oh, the problems we women have in our middle years and battling weight gain. I learned that car rides and walks were pretty neat things to do so that’s been great exercise. I also have nice ways of letting you know that I need to go out and do my business. Then, I needed to have a bladder stone removed and now I’m a new dog! Not only that, people were awesome and sent in contributions for my vet bill which was close to $1,500. Thank you for believing I was worth it!

I should mention that I probably would do best being the only dog in the house and should avoid small kids. If you want the rest of my resume, please contact my foster mom who can answer any other questions you may have.

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