History: Cindy is a beautiful lab mix who needed help from a very sad and unfortunate situation where she was living on a short chain and in crummy conditions. She arrived to rescue recently and is still into rescue and doing well. She is hoping to find a family to call her very own soon!
A note from the foster: 8/13/19: Cindy has been just a joy to foster. She has a really fun, sweet personality and is quite "young at heart"- she is pretty spunky for her age so looks forward to having daily mental and physical activities to keep her busy. She is enjoying living life to its fullest, especially the freedom to run and stretch her legs and socialize with other dogs after living alone on a chain. She likes staying active during the day and then mellows out in the evening to rest up for whatever adventures lie in store for the next day. Cindy's favorite things are: toys, playing ball and chasing after whoever else is chasing a ball, water activities, going for walks/hikes/short jogs, lounging outside, hanging out with her foster brothers, and did I mention toys? She has definitely become queen of the kiddie pool on these hot summer days too! She also likes to try and get a game of "chase" going with her people which usually leads to a case of the "zoomies" for her. Cindy thrives in the company of other friendly and confident dogs so having at least one other dog in her new family would be best. She is currently living with three large male dogs and one older kitty- she loves them all and likes to keep track of where they are. She would also really appreciate having a yard to be able to run free in. She is often first in line to get out the door to chase after critters. With people, Cindy is gentle and friendly but is a little on the shy side at first and can be cautious around those she doesn't know. She tends to warm up quickly to women and is fine with men once she gets to know they are "safe". For this reason a quieter home without small children is ideal. She is a gentle gal, so just needs a gentle approach in return, some patience, structure, and a confident active family to help her settle in. Once she warms up to you, she is affectionate, loves belly rubs, and will greet you with the cutest helicopter tail we have ever seen! Cindy has been practicing walking on a leash as well as "sit", "wait", and "come". We are so proud of how quickly she has caught on to her routines and learning new things. She is a wonderful companion and is just waiting for the right family to come along.
Gender: Female Breed: Shih Tzu Age: Est DOB: 11/2008 Weight: 15 lbs Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: Unknown House trained: In Progress Adoption Fee: $550 + tax
History: We received a plea to help three beautiful adult Shih Tzus from an unfortunate situation. They arrived to rescue recently and are the sweetest dogs in the world. They were a bit unsure and shy at first but warm up quickly and have so much love to give. They would each make a great addition to loving patient families!
A note from the foster: Gamora was very timid and quite the artful dodger when she came home with us. She had clearly never been in a home before - she prefers hard floors even though they are slippery and difficult for her to walk on. It took her a couple weeks to warm up to sleeping in a bed of any kind - she would curl up in the middle of the floor by choice and on her second day here she even climbed onto a wire shelf outside and curled up to sleep! She would tense up when we picked her up to hold her or brought her onto the couch to snuggle. Thankfully this has changed. Now she relishes cuddle time!
Her front knee joints are stiff so she is very clumsy going down stairs or jumping off furniture on her own - it’s always a crash landing. Even though she bounces back quickly from those falls, we always carry her down our outdoor steps when taking her outside and we help her off the couch as well to prevent injury. She can climb stairs slowly on her own, but will not go down unless she is falling. And she does not jump onto furniture herself.
Outdoors, she prefers to stay on pavement. Grass is unfamiliar to her so she avoids it when she can. She does all her potty on the sidewalk. Once she has finished, she makes a beeline for the house. She does not like to spend extra time outside but we are working on expanding her horizons. She will stay if we explore!
This little girl is 11 years old and was just spayed. Her belly is still droopy from birthing and it is too early to tell whether it will ever tighten up again.
Gam is not a barker, but she does speak up when excited or when she needs something. She likes to bark in chorus with our dog when there is an unfamiliar noise outside. But she calms down very quickly. And when she knows food is out and she can’t get there, either because somebody left her on the couch or because her crate is locked, she is certain to tell us with a quick, joyful yap! Her voice is soft and slightly raspy.
Gam can get underfoot sometimes. In many ways she would be an ideal companion dog for someone who is homebound. But the underfoot part makes that a tricky pairing. Keeping her crated while working in the kitchen is helpful (she is VERY enthusiastic about food!)
Speaking of the crate, she loves to be in hers. She sleeps very well in her crate whether it is locked or open. We have had to lock her OUT of it a couple times to stretch her comfort level a bit!
She house trained pretty quickly, but she was sneaky at first - we had to watch her very closely to prevent secret accidents. She tends to get restless when she needs to go outside and she seems playful and animated. She does this silly “dance” that looks like she is a seal crossing the beach - she stretches her back legs out and drags her belly while she throws her head high in the air. It’s adorable and effective. That’s when we pick her up and take her outside.
Now that she has recovered from surgery, we will begin working on her familiarity with a leash. Her adventurous spirit will really take off when she is comfortable with a lead on.
Gender: Female Breed: Retriever & Spaniel Mix Age: Est DOB: 06/2007 Weight: 51 lbs Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: Yes House trained: Yes Adoption Fee: $550 + tax
History: Ginger is a gorgeous adult retriever/spaniel mix who needed help from an unfortunate situation. She was found as a stray, very matted and in desperate need of a grooming. She arrived to rescue and is just the sweetest girl who is reported to be not only great with other dogs but also cat and kid friendly. She is hoping to find her forever family soon!
Gender: Male Breed: Maltese Age: Est DOB: 2011 Weight: 7 lbs Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: Unknown House trained: In Progress Adoption Fee: $500 + tax
History: Kobie and Micky needed help from an unfortunate situation where they were being surrendered from a breeder release. They are both very sweet and adorable who are each hoping to find their forever families soon!
A note from the foster: Micky comes to us as breeder release, spending most his life in a crate. Despite this sad situation Mickey is the sweetest little 7 lb cutie that just wants to be loved. He gets along well with kids and other dogs. He is all up to date on shots, is micro-chipped, and had his neuter & dental work in April. Bonus - no shedding :)
Micky is still trying to get used to the fact that people are not trying to hurt him, he just needs a little time & patience, then when comfortable he is happy to snuggle close to you.
He has lost many teeth - the vet says some tooth loss is normal for small dogs, he is doing very well with a softer type food. He is very food motivated and he loves to give you an adorable little tail wag while standing on his hind legs to earn that food.
With the warmer weather we have been out walking and practicing on leash, he is doing very well on leash! He is also improving his ability to do stairs, working on that fear.
We have been working really hard on house training. He knows exactly what to do when he gets outside & is quick to do it. Coming from the situation Micky was in this whole potty training thing is new so he is still having accidents in the house. It may take more time for him when compared to a dog that didn't have to deal with his past treatment. Micky is used to being in the crate or pen when foster mom & dad are at work; and at night.
Gender: Male Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Age: Est DOB: 10/2010 Weight: 59 lbs Dog friendly: Yes Cat friendly: Unknown House trained: TBD Adoption Fee: $500 + tax
History: This sweet dog needed help badly and quickly. With the help of our transport team, veterinary clinic, and a wonderful foster family waiting to welcome him, Tonka Abrams was welcomed to rescue recently and is settling in well. He is the sweetest boy who is reported to be very friendly around other dogs and just an all around nice guy despite his rough past. He arrived tattered, beaten down, and in obvious rough shape. We cannot wait to give him all the TLC he needs and deserves. Tonka Abrams is hoping to find a family to call his forever- he will make a great addition to a lucky family!
A note from the foster: Hi, my name is Abrams, Tonka Abrams, you can call me Tonka. ;) I am an older gentleman looking for my forever home. I love women, walks, riding in the car, and balls. There is nothing I love more than cuddling up on the couch after greeting you after a long day at work.
I can't cook you gourmet meals, but I can appreciate the food you give me. Food is one of my favorite things, along with balls. I like to play "great white shark" and come under you and tip the plate. I like other dogs, but youngster (puppies) are not my favorite. So immature, and gauche. I don't like being crawled, walked or stepped on and let my displeasure be known.
Stairs are difficult for me, but I try. One level living would be preferred but is not required. I do require some things: food, love, a warm bed, a sunny place to lay and balls. Did I mention I love balls and women? Really anything round is my favorite thing. Men can scare me, but if they feed me a few times I love them too. Belly rubs are good. Just loving me is good, I have a lot of love to give.
