Daisy Daisy Daisy

Daisy is a 15 year old owner relinquishment for personal reasons. She is up to date on vaccinations, hw-/fe-, and has had a dental.

At 15, Daisy has a bit of a hitch in her gitalong, but that doesn’t slow her down. She loves to be outside and loves to walk. We have put her on anti-inflammatories, and she is feeling much more comfortable. Daisy is sweet and loving to her humans, and is perfectly house and crate trained. Inside, she wants nothing more than to have her head patted and her rear end skritched. However, she is anxious in new situations, and is easily intimidated, so a quiet home with no young children or rambunctious dogs would be ideal. Give her a few days to settle in, and she will be a sweet and easygoing companion. Will you offer Daisy a soft landing in her golden years?

An update from Daisy's foster mom: Daisy gets along with our resident Sheltie, Stella, and Stella seems to get along with her. The only interaction seems to be sniffing each other. Daisy jumps with excitement when I fix the meals. I feed them side by side without problems. Daisy will play with toys. She runs excitedly to the door for our walks. She's been an easy foster. I still find it hard to believe she's 15!

Charlie    

Charlie is an OR to a shelter. He is ~4 years old, 18 pounds, 18 inches, now UTD, not neutered, heartworm positive. Charlie will begin heartworm treatment ~ 8/10, will be neutered and ready for his forever home ~10/10. An update from Charlie's foster mom:

Charlie is one sweet special boy who craves a lot of attention. He enjoys staying on the couch and bed with us. He does go to the back door to let us know he needs to go out. But since he's not neutered yet he still wears the belly band in the house. We have not been able to break him of kitchen counter surfing, so we’re keeping food off the counters. He is crate trained but no longer crated at night since he sleeps in bed with us. We do crate him when we leave the house.

He is no longer howling but does bark to let us know he's ready to eat....even at 5:00 am. He does get nervous during rainstorms. Wearing a thundershirt and keeping him by our side helps calm him down.

We have taken him on walks at the park and visits to PetSmart. He does well walking on a leash and enjoys greeting others dogs and people. However, he is on the lookout for squirrels.

He does well with our Shelties but he does love being Number 1. He is very curious about the cats and has been trying to get the cats to play with him.

He’s a wonderful guy and will make a great home for an active family.

Abba    

Abba is a Sheltie/miniature Aussie mix who came to us from another rescue group. She is a petite 11 or 12 inches tall, weighs about 17 pounds, and is estimated to be about 10 years old. She is spayed, current on vaccines, fecal negative, heartworm positive. When she came to us, she had a number of mammary tumors. She had a major surgery to remove all the tumors, which were sent off for biopsy. Some of the tumors were benign, but two were malignant. One of the malignant tumors was a high grade and unfortunately had spread into lymph nodes and the bloodstream. Because of that, it is possible that Abba will at some point have a recurrence of cancer locally or at other locations in her body. To see her, you would never know that she has any health problems. She eats well and gets along with the resident dogs and cat. Although she is a bit timid and shy, she often follows me around the house and sleeps in a dog bed beside my bed. She is well house trained, walks well on a leash, and enjoys being brushed. Our plan is to keep her happy and comfortable and exercise watchful waiting for any developments in her health status. We are glad to have this cute, perky little girl in our group.

Rascal    

Rascal, a 10 year old (DOB 11/19/09) tri-colored Sheltie, was an owner relinquishment (along with Tanner) due to death of his owner. Rascal is UTD, neutered, weighs 28 pounds and is heartworm/fecal negative. Rascal is a friendly but somewhat shy Sheltie who loves people. He freely gives tail wags and loves meeting everyone, especially when they give head scratches. He is very obedient, knows sit and is crate trained and house trained. He loves to be in the kitchen with his foster dad when dinner is being prepared, and follows him around everywhere. He is a sweet boy and is learning to trust his foster family with all the changes he has been through. It is hard to resist those beautiful brown eyes! Rascal would do best as an only dog in a home with no small children. He is unsure in high energy situations and can react negatively.

Rascal came to HSS diagnosed with diabetes and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI). He is currently on insulin injections given twice a day and pancreplus powder, a digestive aid and replacement therapy for the EPI. HSS is currently monitoring his blood glucose levels and adjusting his insulin units in order to get his glucose levels within normal ranges. Rascal is very good boy when given his insulin injections. He stands still and he makes it easy to administer the insulin shot.

Rascal would love a home where he is the one and only, and a family that would be dedicated to working with his medical needs. After losing the family that he has known since he was a puppy, he deserves to find a family that will love and accept him with his special needs. He will repay you with tail wags and perfect "SIT"s!

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!!!!
