||A-Z Tell us What you are looking for|
Please give us a brief description of the type of dog you are looking for and characteristics it MUST have. We will do our best to help you find him/her if you pass our process. Thank you for thinking about what you want and not just choosing a dog because it is "cute" or a puppy.Please understand the cute puppy will very soon be a one year old and frankly you have no way of knowing what it will look like as an adult. You also will not know personality like with a dog that is 2+. A senior dog is a blessing just knowing that it is lucky to be here and loved.
Meet Sugar :) She is an absolutely beautiful little girl who got dumped in a kill shelter when her owner died. She was rescued shaking and cowering in the corner of her cage in the big scary shelter. She is proving to be a wonderful companion in her foster home and wiggles her whole rear end when spoken to and rolls over for belly rubs. She is medium to low energy, preferring to just sit with the humans and be petted or follow you around on your chores. She is also up for a game of fetch now and then and loves to chew on nyla bones. Sugar tends to try to be queen of the castle and would do best as an only dog or with a larger dog (25lbs and over) who would not put up with her bossiness. She will play with other freindly dogs. She is spayed and microchipped and has had all her vaccinations. Fill out an application now if you think Sugar would be a good fit in your home. She is a wonderful little lady and deserves a great forever home!
Ozzie is part of a group of 4 chihuahua's that were given to us from a home with 11 dogs that were never given human attention. They are very fearful of everything. We are working slowly with each of them.Update:Once upon a time, in a land not so far away, lived a very scared and broken-hearted chihuahua. His name was Ozzie. He was taken to boarding until a foster home became available to wish away the memories that scared and scarred him. Within a week, a lady came to pick him up. Ozzie saw the lady and tried to hide in a corner of the boarding facility. The lady took a step closer and Ozzie pooped his pants! (Okay, Ozzie didn't have pants on and it hit the floor. But, we don't want to embarrass him about being naked in public.) The lady spent a long time sitting near him and talking to him before Ozzie would crawl onto her lap. The lady took Ozzie home with her. Ozzie was given his own room with a crate to sleep in. It had a warm fluffy bed. The lady placed him in the crate to adjust to the sounds of the house. Ozzie had never been more scared in his life. Whenever the lady tried to put a leash on his collar he would try to scare her away with snarls and barks, but she wouldn't give up. For 2 weeks the lady would dangle a slip lead through the crate and loop it around him before she could put his leash on. The foster lady had discovered that Ozzie was afraid to have anyone be near his head. Ozzie started to realize that no matter how much he showed his fears, this foster lady wouldn't give up on trying to love him. His foster mom started leaving his crate and bedroom door open. One night he peeked into her bedroom and saw her with two other dogs on her bed. They were playing and licking her face...and she laughed and seemed to like it. Ozzie snuck closer and closer...until he was up on the bed at the bottom, watching as the other dogs moved closer to foster mom and cuddled up to sleep! Foster mom pretended not to notice as Ozzie crept closer and closer...until he came up to her and cuddled too! This went on for several nights. Finally, Ozzie decided that he wasn't so afraid of foster mom and he was going to give her a kiss on the face like the other dogs did. Foster mom was filled with joy. This kiss meant more than any wet puppy kiss she ever had. The scared and broken-hearted chihuahua had turned a corner and found someone he could trust and care for!As the days and weeks turned into months, Ozzie started to try playing with the other dogs. He would sit on foster mom's lap, drink her iced tea and coffee when she wasn't paying attention, and start going up to other members of the household for petting. Ozzie learned nobody was going to hurt his head and all the humans respected his wish to allow him to give kisses first and not reach for his head or put their face in his without first being asked to by him. Life for Ozzie was the best he could remember.Then, one day, foster mom brought home a pup. The pup's name was Dink. Dink was a very energetic and playful puppy. Ozzie wasn't sure why, but foster mom decided to introduce him to Dink in the play yard...just the two of them! Ozzie heard foster mom tell someone she was so happy to finally see him play like a young dog should. Ozzie continued to play with Dink. They ran and ran in the green grass until they were both tired and thirsty. Ozzie thinks he heard foster mom say she hopes he finds a furever home now that his fears have lessened. Ozzie now has joy and hope in his heart that he will soon find another patient and understanding home of humans that he could make as happy as foster mom!
Helllloooooow my name is Zeplin. I came from a very scary man and people were really mean to me and other dogs werent very nice either :( I was scared of everything!!! I'm starting to really like my foster mommy but I still run when she calls me. She comes over and takes me out of my crate and holds me and it actually feels really nice but I still don't trust humans enough just to run over and ask for attention like the other pups do.Zeplin will defecate if you try to force interaction. Comfortable with other dogs but not humans.
