Welcoming a new dog to your household?  Please take a few minutes to review our hints on how to introduce a new dog.

⇒ 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.

Diego

Diego 01/20/15

*Adoption Pending*

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.

Niner 03/29/15

Niner

Look out Seahawks! Little Niner just moved up from the Bay area and is looking for a new home right in the middle of 12th Man territory! He’s 11 years old and 15 pounds. This sweet boy’s owner just recently passed away and now Niner is left without his tailgating buddies. Niner loves belly rubs and kisses and would happily consider any new team mates. He can be a little nervous, so may be best suited with children over the age of 10. Niner is housetrained and gets along well with other dogs and cats.

Elmer

Gentle Elmer came into PAWS as a stray with not a lot of history. He is a spaniel mix about 10 years old and 40 pounds. The person who found him had him at her house for a couple of nights and he did well with her 4 kitties and was well behaved in the home. Elmer likes to do things nice and easy; he is in no hurry to get anywhere and enjoys taking the time to stop and sniff the daisies. He gets along well with other dogs and loves spending time with buddies. Elmer is looking for a big comfy couch and would love to meet you!

Phillimena 03/29/15

Phillimena

Little Phillimena, an 8-year-old terrier mix weighing 12 pounds, was brought to an animal shelter by an owner who had named her “Fatso”; she was scared and didn’t want to make friends with anyone so PAWS transferred her in and discovered the way to her heart was other doggy friends. After just a week at PAWS Phillimena (her new name) is happy and outgoing and loves affection. This little Princess is better suited in a home with children 12 years and older and would love another doggy buddy in the home.

Apple has had a tough time of it; her owner passed away and she found herself at the age of 11 in need of a new home with a new family.

Gigi 03/29/15

Gigi 03/29/15

Gigi

“My bags are packed and I’m ready to go.” I’m Gigi, a 12-year-old toy poodle, only 7 pounds, and I am ready to move on in life. I have my carry bag, a booster seat, a raincoat and a fleece coat all packed. No kidding!!!! My human mom just passed away and while I miss her terribly I know she’s feeling better where she is now. She made me promise to go on with life and live it for her so that’s the plan but I may need your help. I’m healthy per my recent vet checkup and I had my teeth cleaned so my breath is fresh and ready to meet you nose to nose. I am called a Phantom poodle, and I am beautiful. I think I look pretty awesome, don’t you? Since I’ve been in the foster home, I have had to deal with being left at home while people go to work. I would be thrilled to be back in a home where someone was home most of the day because I love having my special human home but if you do have to go out for awhile I’ll make sure you know you are super loved and appreciated when you return home.

I’m very smart and I don’t brag..well, not much. I learned how to use the doggy door at my foster home the very first day I was left at home. I’ve also been classified as a perfect addition for a quiet family. I love going on walks and I’m even capable of leading the little group of dogs in my foster home. I’m a good eater, not at all picky, and I don’t need any particularly special food although it is
wise to still provide me a good quality food. That’s why I’m in such good physical condition now. I’m friendly when I meet new people and I don’t mind meeting children but, if you have some, be sure to talk it over with my foster mom.” Gigi is posted for Furbaby Rescue and is fostered in Bellingham, Washington.

Maggie 03/29/15

Maggie 03/29/15

Maggie

“Hello…my name is Maggie but it might as well be “YOUR Best Friend” because that’s what I want and what I will be. I have been loved and cared for since I was a puppy. I got so lucky because a wonderful young woman adopted me and gave me love and a home and I have been very happy. I am still a happy dog but very sad to have lost my owner. (That, you see is why I am looking for a new home.) Aside from being a great dog, I have been a therapy dog as well. I am a bombproof dog, good with all creatures. I’m also a bit clever. I can say Momma, Maggie, and I love you. I can do back flips if you throw a toy over my head to prompt me. If you tell me to play the piano I will try very hard to make a little melody for you. If you take me to a spot and say “dig”…I will do it and when you tell me to stop I will. I know the names of my toys. Sadly I have only two toys left, though.

If you want me to meet a small animal, bring it to me, let me sniff it, and say “be nice, it’s just a baby”. If you want me to jump up tell me to “up up”. I love to fetch and swim. I like to find objects you hide from me. I don’t like dog parks. Two times burglars broke into my home and I chased the bad guys out of the house. My human family was IN the house during both times. I have never bitten anyone but I am afraid of people in puffy jackets and hats or big beards…at first.

I’m 10 years old and only 40 pounds. I am healthy, active, big enough to be a “big dog” but small enough that most anyone can manage me. I am looking for someone who will appreciate how smart I am. I also should tell you that I come with a clean-as-a-whistle clean bill of health. I have records to show your own vet how thoroughly I have been checked out and how outstanding my health is just now. ”
Maggie is posted for Rebecca’s Rainbow and is fostered in Kirkland.

Lolly & Dot 03/28/15

Lolly & Dot

This bonded pair of 4-pound chihuahuas, 10 and 8 years old, Lolly and Dot came into rescue after the death of their owner. They have been cared for very well and need to be adopted together. Both dogs are in good health, with recent dental cleaning done. They are both extremely social dogs and adore people. They get along well with other small dogs and can live happily with cats although chasing them, on the rare occasion, is a fun game. Both dogs are quiet little snuggle bunnies; Lolly would be happy to snuggle with you all day and get belly rubs for all eternity, Dot is happy to do the same with a game here or there of fetch with her favorite toys. The girls are potty trained to wee pads and love to take walks, but like many little dogs are barky to big dogs they encounter – but easily redirected with treats. They happily sleep in their beds at night and enjoy chewies and treats for good behavior. In their foster home they live with other small dogs and cats. They are a joy to care for and will be missed greatly. A good home for them would be someone who wants two quiet, relaxed dogs who like walkies a few times a week and snuggles everyday.

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

Susie & Toby 03/28/15

Susie & Toby 03/28/15

Susie & Toby

Toby is a shy but sweet little guy looking for a forever home along with his affectionate sister Susie. He and Susie are very bonded and have lived together their whole lives. Susie is a little more confident and outgoing than her brother and helps him feel secure. They are looking for a quiet and mellow adult-only home where they can feel safe and loved. Toby has some skin issues which are currently being treated and may also require thyroid medication, which is fairly inexpensive, however his new family will need to have the financial stability to provide him with any vet care he may require. Susie is a typical Chihuahua; lovable, loyal and loves to give kisses! She would benefit from losing a little bit of weight which can be achieved with a healthy diet and regular strolls through the park. Even though Toby and Susie are 8 years old, they still have many happy years left. Chihuahua people know how loving and loyal this breed can be, and this pair is no different. They would love to curl up in your lap for hours!

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

If you can provide this perfect pair with a permanent and loving home please contact the Whatcom Humane Society in Bellingham, Washington at adoptions@whatcomhumane.org.

Ky 03/26/15

Ky 03/26/15

Ky

Ky is an almost 11-year-old mixed breed who weighs about 45-50 pounds. He’s a handsome guy, don’t you think? Ky has lived with other dogs and cats and is reportedly good with both. Ky does prefer dogs his size or bigger as small dogs scare him! He does well with children but because he could knock over a child in his excitement, it’s suggested he go to a home with kids at least age 6 and over. Currently Ky spends his time outdoors but he has lived indoors before, and he would appreciate a new home where he can be inside whenever he wants. He is said to be potty-trained and can stay alone for a work day for up to 8 hours. Ky can do stairs and he really enjoys his daily walks. He does a cute skip and he loves to cuddle. Ky is described as “a sweetheart with a great personality”. He is in Lynnwood, Washington, in need of a forever home very soon.

Chloe 03/26/15

Chloe

This beautiful girl’s name is Chloe. She is a husky mix who weighs 65 pounds. Chloe’s exact age is unknown but she is guessed to be 13-15 years old. No one has told Chloe how old she is, however! She still can still do stairs and loves to go for short walks. She also enjoys running and playing in the yard, she just can’t do it as long as she used to. Chloe is described as “low maintenance, a very calm dog”. Sweet Chloe has been around other dogs and is social and submissive with them. She has never lived with or been observed around cats. Chloe is good with children who will be gentle with her. She is fine to stay alone for a workday, reportedly going up to 10 hours without needing a potty break. However, due to her advanced age, it’d be best to not expect her to “hold it” for so long. Chloe is in Spanaway, Washington, waiting to grace her new home with her presence.

Hurley & Bean

Hurley (male) and Bean (female) are 8-year-old pugs that have been together since they were 6 months old. They are just wonderful…very mild mannered, well behaved and very loving. They are both completely housetrained and great on leash. They both love to watch TV and bark at any animals that come on! When you come home they run circles around you and bark with joy! They really are the best of what a pug is and whoever gets them will be very lucky! Hurley and Bean must be adopted together and they are located in Portland, Oregon.

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

Myrtle 03/26/15 *Adopted* 03/29/15

Myrtle

This lovely young lady is Myrtle, an 8-year-old cream colored boxer mix. Myrtle has been a sweet loving girl with everyone at the kennel but she would not be good with small children. The shelter has been told that she is OK with cats. Myrtle would love to find an owner who will help her take off a little weight by giving her a leisurely walk every day, hopefully an older adult who is looking for a companion for daily walks, snuggles on the sofa, a dog who just wants to chill with them.

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

If Myrtle is the girl you’ve been waiting for, contact Adopt-A-Pet in Shelton, Washington to set up an appointment to meet her or get more information on this special girl. Email: thedoghouse3091@hotmail.com, phone: 360-432-3091.

Dexter 03/26/15

Dexter 03/26/15

Dexter

Meet Dexter! Here is a true gem you won’t find everyday. Dexter is a brindle Chow Chow who is as gentle as a lamb. He was found as a stray and was very cautious when he first arrived at the shelter but, with time and patience from all the volunteers, he is learning to walk on a leash and is more confident every day. Dexter is probably not going to be your jogging buddy or compete in any agility competitions but he will be a pal who wants to go on slow, long walks with you and snuggle by the fire. He loves everyone he meets but, because of his size and because he’s still gaining his confidence, small kids are not recommended. Dexter is a 85-pound gentle giant looking for someone to scratch his ears and give him loving belly rubs. In return he’ll lavish you with sloppy kisses and his undying loyalty.

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

Bonnie 03/26/15

Bonnie

8-year-old Bonnie is a beautiful Pit Bull mix who weighs 45 pounds. She is good with other dogs that have similar energy as she does; she does not appreciate pesky puppies (and who can blame her?). 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”. She is posted for Adopt A Pet and is being fostered near Olympia, Washington.

Buddy is a 13 year old, 30 pound Terrier mix. He is good around dogs, cats and kids. He is very loving and easy going. He would prefer a calm and quiet household. Buddy is also great on a leash. He is up to date on all shots and neutered with full vet records. Buddy will need his teeth cleaned. He has a fatty tissue lump on his right back that the vet has checked out and said is nothing to worry about.

Mr. Veeps 03/25/15

Mr. Veeps 03/25/15

Mr. Veeps

My name is Mr. Veeps!!! Not sure why or where I got that name but it very unique, isn’t it? I’m a Shih Tzu/Lhasa mix, probably about 11 years old, 13 pounds. I’m not really a lap dog but I like to follow my beloved one around and stay close. I like to be petted but I’m a bit shy at first but just wait until I know I’m home for good with you. I’m happy in a doggy bed at night if you don’t wish to share your bed. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE squeaky toys. I’m good on a leash and I’m so potty trained that it’s ridiculous. I let my foster family brush me and I’d love to get used to just one special person so I could ask for more petting and loving. Now one little thing and think about this as if it were you. If someone surprises me or bumps me on my missing eye side, I get upset and growl a bit. I just can’t see what’s coming so it is a bit startling for a very brief time. But you could adjust to that, couldn’t you? It’s like always pass on the right whether you’re a pedestrian or driving a car or approaching Mr. Veeps. No big deal, right? Barking isn’t my thing to do unless it’s to alert you that a stranger just entered the house. I’m like the ADT alarm system except I have four legs and I don’t send you a monthly bill for the alarm services. What you save in ADT monthly fees you could use to buy squeaky toys! Yes, that’s a brilliant thought.

So that’s about it, folks. I have lots of living to still do and lots of loving to give to the person who looks at my photo, reads my story and says “Mr. Veeps, you need to come home with me.” This little guy is posted for Furbaby Rescue and is fostered in Lacey, Washington, near Olympia.

Pretzel 03/25/15

Pretzel

Sweet, sweet Pretzel is a most delightful girl! An 8-year-old 16-pound dachshund, she loves to snuggle under the covers like most dachshunds, loves to have a good chew on a raw bone, is gentle with her kisses, gets along well with other dogs and you’d never guess she’ll turn 9 in May. She’s had a full dental and blood-work, all ready for a new home. She loves her green beans with breakfast. Her previous owner passed away and she needs another retired home to love and to love her. She’ll do best in a somewhat quiet setting where she can devote herself to kind loving people.

Rosie 03/23/15

Rosie 03/23/15

Rosie

Rosie is a beautiful 8-year-old purebred cocker spaniel who weighs 27.8 pounds. She has been well loved and was surrendered due to her owner’s declining health. Rosie was born with a cleft palate. Although this means there is a hole between nose and mouth, it doesn’t cause her any problems and she can even clean her own nose! Rosie also has dry eye, which is not uncommon for her breed and age, so will require lifelong prescription eye medication to keep her eyes moist and healthy. Rosie just received a dental so her kisses now come with fresh doggie breath! She likes other dogs but was overly aroused by the test cat so a cat-free home is recommended. She’s never lived with children, so an adult-only home or one with older, respectful children would suit her best. Rosie is eager to become a loved member of a new family. Do you have a spot for her?

Barkley 03/20/15

Barkeley 03/20/15

Barkeley

Barkeley is an Irish Setter mix who weighs about 45 pounds, he is only 8 years old. He has a history of not getting along with other dogs so he should either be an “only” dog or be adopted by someone who is very dog-savvy, willing and able to work with him on proper socialization. Barkeley has lived with and has no issues with cats. While he’s never been around kids he is friendly and loves people so it’s assumed he would be good with respectful children age 6 and over. Barkeley really enjoys playing with his person. He appreciates 2 walks a day and he can do stairs. He does take inexpensive medication that keeps him relaxed and manageable. Because of that he can stay alone for a work day without needing a potty break for about 8 hours. This handsome, unique looking dog is in Seattle, waiting for his forever home to settle into.

Cookie

Hi! I’m Cookie! I am a bright 8-year-old, 65-pound German Shepherd who will thrive in a home with no young kids. I would prefer to be an only dog because I’m picky with my doggy friends but I could live with the right dog. My new family should have some experience with German Shepherds. My needs are simple: food, shelter, love, regular walks, and consistent rules. In return I will be your loving and loyal companion for life!

Alastor 03/20/15

Alastor 03/20/15

Alastor

Alastor is a sweet, mature (10-12 years old?), Chihuahua with a gentle disposition and a face only a mother could love. Or maybe YOU! We don’t know how this quirky little old gentleman came to be wandering the city streets in the middle of winter with a severe eye injury, but after a few months of care and recuperation, he’s ready to find his new home. Alastor is small (about 5 pounds), with one beautiful dark brown eye. The other eye, unfortunately, is slightly scarred and completely blind as a result of his injury, but this doesn’t seem to trouble him at all. (He does need daily lubricating eye drops.) After some recent dental work, he has a total of four teeth left, but still enjoys his meals with gusto! His favorite activities are napping on the couch and taking small, slow strolls around the yard. He is happy to be carried in a pouch or ride in the car, but is intimidated by walking on leash. In fact, Alastor is intimidated by almost everything, and would probably do best in a quiet, slow-paced household. He gets along fine with the resident dog and cat in his foster home, and is mostly house trained, but can have occasional accidents if left alone too long.

Alastor has clearly had some tough breaks in his life, and deserves to spend his remaining years in a loving, peaceful home where his job title is Executive Lap Warmer and Snuggling Consultant. If you have such a position open, please fill out an application, then come interview him! Alastor (SAS ID #14-24800) is being adored in a Seattle Animal Shelter foster home.

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

Chewy 03/20/15

Chewy

I’m a mature, gentle giant American Bulldog with loads and loads of love to give. I may be 12 years old, but I have energy to cuddle endlessly. I am very well-mannered on leash and love daily walks. I have a sweet, mellow personality and I get along very well with my foster sister dog. I’d love to meet your dogs too, though I would prefer quiet companionship over exuberant play. If your couch or walks are feeling a little empty, I want you to know that I’ve been waiting my whole life to share it with you! I promise you’ll fall in love with me the instant that we meet, and you’ll see the oceans of love in my big, expressive eyes! Chewy (SAS ID #14-23622) is being adored in a Seattle Animal Shelter foster home.

Penelope 03/20/15

Penelope

Mellow, confident, soft-spoken, stoic… these might not be the first words you think of when contemplating a Chihuahua, but they fit Penelope to a “T.” This gentle, affectionate girl is a wonder of calm comportment. With her deer-like ears, elegant curl of a tail, and heartfelt expression, Penelope is quite a cutie pie, too. At 10 years old, she’s ready to accompany you on leisurely strolls (she walks well on a leash), and she’s always available for snuggling. If you’ve never had a dog before, well-mannered Penelope would be a great match for you. She’ll do well with kids 8 and up and might enjoy the company of another dog. Come meet this little charmer and see if she’s the one for you.

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

Penelope (SAS ID #15-2105) is currently at the Seattle Animal Shelter, 2061 15th Ave. W. (1 mile south of the Ballard Bridge). The shelter is open Tuesday-Sunday from noon-6:00pm, and closed on holidays. Please contact the Shelter at (206) 386-PETS for more information.

Shiloh 03/20/15

Shiloh

Are you looking for a special companion who loves to go for walks, take rides in cars, play fetch and nap at your feet? Shiloh is the girl! This 11-year-old, 70-pound black lab mix is a treasure! She’s in great shape for a senior girl and goes up and down stairs easily. She is currently living with 2 dogs and a cat. She gets along well with other dogs and people. She has been known to chase the cat a couple times so caution is advised if she were adopted into a home with a cat. She knows several commands and is eager to please. Shiloh is the nice combination of a mature dog that settles down very well in the house but also enjoys life. She does fine while her foster mom and dad are away all day at work. If you are looking for a loyal companion, Shiloh would add great joy to your life!

Button & Nikki 03/19/15

Button & Nikki

Button & Nikki are BFF’s who are hoping to find a forever home together. Button is coming up on 15 years of age but no one told her that! She is 20 pounds and is a Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu mix. Nikki is an 11-year-old Shih Tzu who weighs about 15 pounds. The pair has lived with other dogs, cats and gentle children and done well with all. Button is mellow and she likes to be “motherly” towards other animals and children. Nikki likes to chase her stuffed animals and lick people to death. They are both described as being “cuddly and loving”. Neither require a lot of exercise; they are content with running in the yard and playing in the house. Nikki and Button can stay alone for a work day (with each other for company) reportedly without needing a potty break. However, given Button’s age, consideration must be taken into leaving her for long hours without being able to relieve herself. These nice little dogs will make a nice addition to a family. They are currently in in Tukwila, Washington and are in need of a home soon.

Chico & Coco

Chico & Coco are an adorable, sweet pair of senior black-and-tan Chihuahuas desperately in need of a home! Chico and Coco have lived their lives together so they are looking for a loving forever home where they can stay together. These cuties ended up at the shelter when their elderly owner went into a nursing home. They are used to being pampered lap dogs. They are getting used to walking on leashes but mostly prefer to be on your lap and be carried. They are so sweet and are so confused and sad being in the loud, scary shelter. Do you have room for double the love?

Casey & Carrie 03/18/15

Casey & Carrie

Casey & Carrie are 8-year-old littermates who are said to be a mix of Lab/German Shepherd/Boxer. Whatever their mix is, it is unique and very striking! Casey is a big boy, weighing in at 92 pounds. Carrie is 67 pounds. Carrie and Casey have lived with other dogs and are reportedly appropriately social when meeting new dogs. They have not ever lived with or been observed around cats. The pair have always spent their days outside but have been brought in at night to sleep with their family’s children or in the family home. Ideally they will be able to be inside during the day if they so desire in their new home. Both dogs can do stairs and since they are what we consider to be “young seniors” they would more than likely enjoy getting out for walks and exercise on a regular basis. Carrie has been known to jump a 4 foot fence so a taller fence is a must for her safety. Casey is said to be a very happy dog who is always delighted to see people and is described as “a goofball”. Carrie is described as “very smart and quiet”; she loves receiving attention. The hope is that Carrie and Casey can remain together as they have always been. They are currently in Snohomish, ready for their forever home.

Bandit 03/18/15

*Adoption Pending*

Bandit

Bandit is a 9-year-old Brussels Griffon who weighs 13 pounds. This darling little guy has never been observed around cats but he has lived with other dogs and does well with them. Because of his arthritis he should only go to a home with older, respectful kids. Bandit cannot do many stairs and currently takes medication for his arthritis – some gradual weight loss may help alleviate pain he has with arthritis. Bandit’s person was a senior citizen, he was used to having her company most of the day. He can stay alone for about 4-5 hours without needing a potty break. Bandit is described as “a sweet, low maintenance dog”. He needs a new home very soon with someone who will give him some extra love and attention to help him through the adjustment of losing his owner and home. Bandit is in Lacey.

Molly 03/17/15

Molly

Molly is a 9-year-old, 50-pound female cattle dog mix. She is good with other dogs as long as they don’t get physical with her, perhaps because her back legs are sensitive. Even though she can’t yet play with them, due to a recent surgery, she wags her tail with excitement . Molly would be mellow with cats. She is sweet with respectful children and adults and makes a great companion. Molly can be independent at times (she follows her nose) so a fenced yard is needed. Despite this, she’s very treat motivated, walks well on a leash, and is well behaved.

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

Molly is fostered through Alternative Humane Society at 360-671-7445; alternativehumanesociety@gmail.com and is located in Bellingham, Washington.

American Eskimos Kona and Yukon are longtime companions and they are hoping to find a forever home together. Kona is 8 years old and she weighs 18 pounds.

Yukon is said to be “a very loyal, well-tempered companion who is as playful as a puppy once he gets to know you”. Kona is described as “a very loveable dog who is playful and well mannered”.

Lugnut is a handsome 12-year-old, 20-pound man. His foster home is guessing his breed as a basset hound/cattle dog mix. He’s active and in great health, they wouldn’t be surprised if he lived to be 20. He’s super affectionate and loves to play. He gets along great with dogs and will chase cats but doesn’t try to hurt them, just play. Lugnut has goofy front legs that add to his charm.

Mary-Grace

Mary-Grace, an 8-year-old pomeranian-cairn terrier mix, weighs 6 pounds. Here’s her story: “I am looking for a new family because my human mom passed away from cancer. I’d been living alone in my house with another dog and some cats for three months. It’s been hard but I was brought to foster care and immediately taken to the vet for a full senior wellness check up with x-rays and an ultrasound and a lot of blood work to make sure I’m healthy, even though I come with a lot of vet history and paperwork. I’m an interesting little dog and a happy one and I think I’m doing pretty well considering all of the changes I have been through. My foster mom says I am not a bomb proof dog. I don’t see why I am being compared to a horse. I would agree, though, I am not bomb proof. I am smart and plucky and I am not going to trust just anyone and I have my own agenda (my ideas might be better) so if I’m messed with I will let you know but if you keep messing with me then I might snap at you. It just depends. So, I really need someone who is going to just let me do my own thing and get used to a new environment. I actually like cats which may be surprising. I like other dogs, too, though that is not as surprising. I really love being in a Sherpa bag, I feel safe in there. I went to a fiber event and got to meet people and meet goats and rabbits and it was a lot of fun. Shhh… I wasn’t supposed to be there so I had to be very quiet. I don’t want to live with children because children like to dress dogs like myself up in clothes and invite us to tea parties and I really prefer to be with a more mature household. I would love to be with another dog and cats are cool. I’m living in Kirkland, Washington.”

Hello from Millie! I am an approximately 10-year-old Boxer. Don’t let my age fool you! I love to go on walks and still have plenty of energy. I love to cuddle on the couch with my foster family.

Polly 03/12/15 *Adopted* 03/28/15

Polly

Polly, a purebred Border Collie, is an affectionate, active girl looking for a loving, herding-breed-experienced home. Based on your experience, it may be required that Polly be signed up for positive reward-based obedience classes before her adoption can be finalized. This will help her bond with her new family and settle in to her new home. Like a typical Border Collie, Polly LOVES to play fetch! If there isn’t a tennis ball handy, she will even bring you a pine cone! Polly is super smart and knows tons of fun tricks, like roll over, and will quickly learn more if you take the time to teach her. Polly was surrendered because she was not getting along well with the small dog in her home. She will need to go to a family without any small animals, like small dogs, cats, rabbits or poultry. A bigger, mellow male dog that won’t try to take her toys away may be okay with her. Polly could live with older, respectful children over 14 who are used to dogs. Polly is an active girl and will require an active home to stay happy.

*Adoption Pending*

Onyx

Onyx is a wonderful 10-year-old, 50-pound female pit bull who is ready for her forever home and a family to call her own. After ten years of belonging to one family, she would love to find her second and final family. Onyx loves her people and adores children. She is particular about her doggie friends and needs slow, proper introductions to allow her to be comfortable. Once warmed up, she is happy to share space with dogs that will respect her. Onyx is quicker to accept male dogs versus females but no cats for her as they are too exciting. Onyx is well trained and has good manners in the house. She wants nothing more than a family to cuddle with and nice walk every day. Onyx does love to explore so a fenced yard or always on-leash is required for her. Her breed does best with a high quality diet and Onyx is flourishing on her current food. If you are looking for a quiet, loving and loyal family member then Onyx is the girl for you.

Zoe 02/23/15 *Adopted* 03/25/15

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.

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.

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!

KD is an independent girl who would love a calm home without other dogs or children. She does not make friends with other pets, so she would do best with just your love. She does know some commands and she is well behaved in the presence of her human. KD is content with a comfy bed to herself, so she can rest up for outings. She loves long walks!! She walks well on lead and is happy with any outing, car rides included. KD is also presumed housebroken. She does have some minor medical issues including mild arthritis which does not seem to bother her. She also has a mass in her mouth which needs monitoring.

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.

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.
