Hart
Hart Hart  

Hart, along with her sibling Dreamer, is an OR due to the death of her owner. She is 7 years old (DOB 4/22/11), 14 inches, 15 pounds, UTD, spayed, heartworm/fecal negative.

An update from Hart's foster mom: Hart is a sweet shy girl, who needs a quiet home without children. She is crate trained and house trained and walks well on a leash. However, she is very skittish and will run from you whenever you call her or approach her. She will eventually settle down, when all the humans are sitting down, but any sudden movement will cause her to jump off the couch and run. She is scared of strange noises and new situations. She is slowly making some headway at our house, and will sometimes walk up to us, while on the couch, for head rubs.

Dusty

Dusty Dusty  

Dusty was returned to the program for personal reasons. He is 12 years old (DOB 5/21/06), 14 inches, is now down to 20 pounds, UTD, neutered, heartworm/fecal negative. Dusty had several seizures in his adopted home. He is on medication twice a day and has not had any seizures since going into his foster home in January.

From Dusty’s foster mom: Dusty is a sweet and lovely, lovely boy. He has beautiful brown eyes and a gorgeous face, and he's so soft and cuddly. He gives little gentle kisses. He likes to play tug of war with his toy, gently. When you throw it, he will run and get it and bring it back to have it thrown again. He enjoys his relaxing paced walks and walks right beside you. He does not pull.

Dusty will let you know when he needs to potty and when he’s ready to come back in. He does not seem interested in lying on the couch or sleeping in a bed. He does get some snuggles when it's bedtime on the bed, but then he goes right off the bed and lays on his doggie bed. He is crate trained.

Dusty seems to like men, or at least my brother! When he came to visit, Dusty greeted him with excitement and love and wanting attention.

During the day, he will lie on the floor or on his dog bed, and several times he has opened the partially opened crate door with his paw, and gone in there to lie down. He is such a sweetie!

From past owners, Dusty started showing aggression towards the other three or four dogs in the home. He gets along great with his sassy foster sister. He hasn't shown any aggression towards her. The two get along fine with our resident dog not having any interest in interacting with Dusty, and Dusty's fine with that. He does seem to want to play with her though, at times. When his fur-cousins and fur-friends visit, we have had no issues.

It is a pure pleasure being Dusty's foster mom. He is well behaved, and anyone who is lucky enough to adopt him will be indeed blessed. He really is such a good dog!!!!

Emma    

Emma is an OR for personal reasons. She is 7 years old (DOB 1/7/12), 15-16 inches, 52 pounds (need to lose at least 20 pounds), now UTD, spayed, heartworm/fecal negative. Emma was treated for a UTI and will have a broken tooth removed on 2/20.

An update from Emma's foster mom: Emma is a great companion and a constant shadow. She is house trained and sits by the door when she needs to go out to the backyard. Emma is leash trained and loves taking long daily walks. She likes riding in the car. She is very playful and tries unsuccessfully to get my resident Sheltie to join in. I have been throwing the ball to her both in and outside and she loves chasing after it. Emma would do well with a family, children or a single person with other playful dogs. She is so full of fun and love.

Cotton Candy
Cotton Candy Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy is an 8 year old (DOB 12/5/2010) double dilute. She’s 15 inches, 24 pounds, up to date, spayed, and just had a dental. Being a double dilute CC was born deaf but luckily has her vision. CC Is back in our program due to the passing of her adopted mom after a battle with cancer.

An update from CC's foster mom: CC does well with dogs and resident cats. She doesn't play with dogs or toys but does like to bark and spin when you’re in her favorite place - the kitchen. CC is not a big fan of the outdoors unless you’re out there with her and she’ll bark to be let inside. CC does not give signals when she needs to potty, so letting her out regularly is working. We do crate her at night and when we leave the house, and she’s not had any accidents when crated. CC lives for food so you want to keep things off the counter and sealed so she can’t forage. We’ve been working with “come” hand signals on lead and she responds but the off leash is a work in progress. She’s not a snuggler by nature do we’ve been doing snuggle sessions and it’s nice to see her enjoying our company more each time. Cotton Candy is very pretty girl and is ready for her new home.

Anna
Anna Anna Anna
Anna Anna  

Anna is a found stray.  She is ~10 years old, 14-15 inches, now UTD, heartworm positive, was treated for tapeworms, has dental disease.

An update from Anna's foster mom:  We do not know Anna's history or how old she is. Anna is a senior lady for sure. I am certain she is completely deaf. This does not stop her. She does really well with hand signals and agreeably gets into her kennel. Her buddy, Kyrie, will go outside and get her if Anna does not hear or see me calling her inside. Unfortunately, shortly after she came into the program, Anna was diagnosed with inoperable bladder cancer. She has become my forever foster and is in hospice care with me. Every day she grows dearer to me. Her spirit is amazing and, like most rescue dogs, Anna shows her appreciation by following me around and giving me soulful looks with those beautiful brown eyes. She has never had a house accident, despite her condition. She is just a doll. We don’t know Anna’s history but you can be sure that she will know love, comfort, understanding and kindness she deserves in her remaining days. When it is her time to cross the Rainbow Bridge she will go knowing she has a family. I will have her paw in my hand and give her gentle strokes so she is not scared and knows she is a good dog and loved. Each dog that I foster teaches me something about the human-animal bond. It is always sad to see them leave but each one has found their perfect furever home and it is amazing to see how it all works out. Thank you Anna for teaching me about keeping your spirits up, because you did and patience, love and understanding do amazing things for dogs and people. It is my honor and privilege to have you as my forever foster.

Angel
Angel Angel Angel

Angel, along with her "brother" Yukon, were returned to the program due to their owner's illness. She is 11 years old, 15 inches, 32 pounds (needs to lose a few), UTD, spayed, and heartworm/fecal negative. Angel is house trained and gets along with other dogs and cats.

Angel's vet felt a growth on her thyroid on her intake exam. Ultrasound revealed growths on both her thyroid glands, one quite large. We took Angel to a surgical specialist to have her evaluated for possible surgery, as it is often curative for thyroid masses. Additional testing, including an MRI, was done, and the surgeon concluded the large growth made the surgery risky and the outcome uncertain. We would very likely be doing more harm than good, and we made the decision to keep her, too, comfortable for as long as we can.

As with Yukon, just getting to this point was an expensive journey. Our goal is always to do what is in the best interest of the dogs in our program, within our ability to do so. Can you help us keep our promises to these dogs to always provide for them? We are so grateful for the support our donors give us.
