*******SPECIAL NOTICE*******

01/07/2018 - We are thrilled with our numbers for this year.  This year we welcomed our nice Tina, and her 10 yr son into our home and have them fully indoctrinated into our version of crazy. 

2017 Statistics
Rescues - 102 (48 Pomeranian & Pom Mix, 30 Chihuahua & Chi Mix)
Placements - 90 including 13 special needs and 17 Seniors (over 9 years)
Six of the special needs were major medical cases.
Financial needs assistance -  5 instances

Funds are still desperately needed for this expansion.  Our next step will be the flooring and we are looking at a $1500 bill for that.  Over Thanksgiving weekend we drafted help to put up most of the drywall and are now working to tale the edges and decide on paint and wall covering behind the sleeping areas.  Materials are what we need funds for at this point.  See more Expansion detail and LOTS of pictures on this page.

Adoption Application
The adoption application is required prior to setting up an appointment to meet the dogs.
Meetings are done by appointment only after a complete application is received and approved.  The application is a key part to the interview process so please give me thoughtful answers as yes/no responses may be eliminated for lack of detail.

Please be patient while the pictures load.
We currently have quite a few dogs available so it may take a bit of time.

Arrived 05/19/2017
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Female
Age: Approximately 9 years
Weight: 9 pounds

Sammie arrived with us after having been in the shelter over one year with two placements prior to that.  She was returned to the shelter for behavioral issues. The placements were very short so she was never allowed to adjust to her new environment..  Sammie needs a home that will allow her to get adjusted on her own time and will be understanding to her limits.  She is very sensitive to over handling.  Sammie is not a morning person and would prefer to sleep in under her blankets.  She does love to ride in cars and to go for walks.  She is very responsive to treat training and once you have her trust she is a sweet under the cover dweller, although the over handling sensitivities will still lurk.  We are looking for an adult only home with someone who has experience with her types of behavior.  We are looking for someone who is willing to take the time she needs to adjust on her own terms.

Hansel was found abandoned in a box in California.  After settling into our environment, Hansel showed us that he is a bit of an alpha boy.  He is bossy with the other boy dogs, not aggressive but can be bossy.  We are looking for a home for him that has no other bossy dogs.  Hansel loves to hang on the couch in a lap and is an under the covers bed dog.  He is super sweet and loves people attention.  He is happiest following 1 of us around as we do our daily chores.  Hansel is an advanced senior so his care will be the loving hospice type of care through the end of his days.

-Pinkie Girl
Arrived 10/29/2017
Breed: we are calling them "iggipoo's"
Italian Greyhound and Poodle
Gender: Female
Age: DOB 08/07/2017
Weight: 8-10 lbs adult estimate

Pinkie is the Crayola kid that we still have with us.  She is a super fun and active little girl looking for just the right home.  These cute little iggipoos are full of energy and wiggles.  Their personalities are all playful and comical.  Puppy-craziness happens 24/7.  We joke about them being up all night having wild parties and keeping all the other dogs awake all night. 

We started calling them the 'Crayola Kids' because they came to us with names based on their collar colors. We considered changing their 'collar-color-names' but nothing else seemed to fit before we started referring to them as the "Crayola Kids".....

She is an outgoing and silly puppy that would be great with active children.
She is a climber so a safe yard and/or leash when outside is a must.
