-Spidie Man- Arrived 05/06/2015
Breed: Toy Fox Terrier
Age: Approximately 2-3 years
Weight: 5 pounds
Spidie Man came to us from an Oregon shelter. Super sweet
little Toy Fox Terrier.
Super long legs on this boy. Loves to be under the covers
and has to arrange his blanket just the perfect way.
05/09 - When I cleaned Spidie's teeth today I discovered
that he is a much younger guy than the 6 that the shelter
had indicated. He has very healthy gums and white
teeth with still had a couple of retained puppy teeth (got
those out). I
am marking him at 2-3, but he may be younger than that.
"KING"- Arrived 05/13/2015 Made available 06/25/2015
Age: DOB 10/2009
Weight: 7 pounds **Special
King is a
special little guy who has been through a lot in his short
life. He has been here for a bit as we reviewed his
medical needs and made adjustments to his treatments.
He has quiet a history with three knee surgeries, a back
injury, head injury, eye injuries, and 9 months ago cushings
diagnosis. When he arrived he was a surely little
bear, grumpy and unhappy. We have adjusted his meds
taking him completely off of the opiate he has been on for
the past 5 years and greatly reducing the Tramadol. We
are not allowing him to be in pain, but have reduced it to
only what is necessary. We believe the opiate was
causing some on the mood issues and have seen huge
improvements. I actually believe (although my vet does
not agree with me) that the long term pain meds may have
caused or triggered the cushings, so am hopeful that there
will be improvement there and he will be able to eventually
come off of that medication. Going forward King will
need bloodwork on a 6 month basis. The basic pannel runs
about $180 and the cushings test is about $250. He
also will need continued meds. The cushings med runs
about $15 a month. We are looking for a quiet home
with someone will be up front with his surly behavior.
He takes his meds like a champ and loves to go for walks on
the leash. He does best when not coddled, but is
confronted with a firm and loving voice and movements.
We are seeing behavior improvements every day now that his
system is free of some of the long term meds and he is
responding very well to exercise, regaining better movement
all the time. He will always have a funny gait as a
result of the in-effective knee surgeries and the old back
injury, but he moves and is not in pain. We are doing
some work on our hot tub and are hoping to get him started
on swim therapy shortly.
08/01 - King is
doing great. He is totally off the pain meds now and
shows more of his real personality all the time. He is a
playful little guy who has a to say to anyone who will
listen. He is getting more of his coat back, although
it may stay patchy in some areas. I suspect that
there is some clipper alopecia in some areas, along with the
Cushing's. Here are some new photos showing off his

surgery done and recovery on-going.**
08/21 - Trouble is doing so
great. He is using his leg most of the time now.
Skips a step just once in a while. Such a sweet loving
baby. At this point we feel that continued water
therapy would be beneficial, it is not a requirement of
placement. He does need to continue with increasing his
walking distances, as well as continuing with stretch and
08/01 - Trouble's first
water therapy session. He seemed to really enjoyed it
and did a great job.
07/29 - Trouble is here YAY
He is such a good boy - doing great in the 8 days since his
surgery. He is hanging out in my lap, right now, getting
used to all the sounds around us. He is beginning to do some
weight bearing on his surgery leg, which is great at this
stage. Resting today, then tomorrow we will start some very
gentle physical therapy. His stitches won't come out for a
few more days so the water therapy will wait until then.
07/22 - Trouble had his
surgery on Monday and is doing great. He will becoming to me
in just a few days. Once his stitches are removed we will
start on water therapy. Until then we have stretching
and massage to get him on the road to recovery.
06/22 - Trouble (with a capitol T)
is in need of some help. This tiny guy has Legg-Calvé-Perthes
and needs surgery. We have a great vet who has agreed to do
this procedure for $700.
Trouble is a one year old boy with oodles of attitude. We
are accepting applications for his adoption, but he will not
go home until after his surgery and recovery.

Cooper is a fun
and engaging little guy. He walks well on a leash and
appears to have at least some house training. Cooper
has only a few teeth left, but still prefers his kibbles.
He had a benign tumor removed from the back of his head and
that has healed up nicely. Cooper has been very well
loved and is looking for someone amazing to spend the rest
of his life with.

Tippy is a sweet
little thing. Loves her cuddles. She is missing
quite a few teeth, but nothing that affects her eating.
She is active and engaging. It does not appear that
Tippy has had much leash training, she is pretty terrified
when we go out. She came to the shelter as a stray so
it could be that she just needs to get past some scary
stuff. Tippy does appear to understand what pee pads
Stacey is back
with us again through no fault of her own. She is
looking for a wonderful quiet home that she does not have to
share with other dogs or young children. She is a
super sweet senior girl who need guidance and love.

alert and active one year old. He is fun and

Gift is very
much a gift. He is a tiny little guy who is engaging
and loving. Gift completely toothless, but does not
let that bother him a bit, he still seems to prefer his
kibbles over soft food. He is fun and silly and all
about being with his people. Gift did great on the
leash and has no issues being in the crate through the
BeeGee is a shy
girl who will need some patience and understanding. She can
be fearful in new situations but is coming along well
through all of the transitioning. She is doing great
in the crate. She was not fond of the leash for photos, but
I suspect she will do better on a harness.
Age: 8 years
Weight: 10+ pounds
Kismet is a
sweet guy who came to us from one of the Oregon shelters.
He appears to have been very loved through his life as he
engages and wants to be with people. We are looking
for a home with no young children as he did display some
guarding behaviors while in the shelter.
Miley is a
beautiful girl. She is sweet and loves attention.
Pretty little thing and just a baby at about 1 year old.
Miley came to us from one of our Oregon shelters. She
does great on the leash - we fill figure out the rest over
the next few days.

cruel to animals cannot be a good man.
