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

03/21/2018 - Very excited for our next big step.  Gradually getting the supplies I need to finish the floor and walls.  Yesterday we ordered our flooring, which should be arriving in the next week or so.  Today the laminate arrived - LOVE LOVE LOVE it - yes it looks like petrified wood.  This laminate will not only be our grooming counter, but will be on the walls behind the crates to allow for easy cleanup.  Trying to pick a wall color now and still need to measure for timing.  Also still need to get the drywall seams taped.  Still lots of work to go, but excited to see this bit coming together. 
Along with this progress are expenses that we need are hoping for donations to help in covering.
These are materials only expenses as we are doing all of this work ourselves.
Flooring $1100
Laminate $560.00
Paint  - estimating $150
Trimming wood (floor board, ceiling, around laminate panels) - estimating  $200.

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.  She has now been with us for over a year and would love to have a home of her very own. 

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.

Breed: Pomeranian Mix
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately 5 years
Weight: 8.5 lbs
Special Needs - Paralyzed

Introducing Remi, our current special needs baby. Remi is 5 years old and is paralyzed from mid back down. He is in no pain and is not a surgery candidate.  He is doing great in his new lightweight wheels, donated by Gunners Wheels, and gets very excited when I get them out. He is coming around well behaviorally and was the hit of our last Pet Smart event. Over all he is a sweet guy and is adjusting to his situation very well.  We are looking for the perfect match for him. He does have daily massage therapy to keep his rear limbs in shape and I believe he would benefit from some acupuncture treatments.

-Rosie White-

Arrived 03/10/2018
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age: Approximately 10+ years
Weight: 6.4  lbs
03/28 Arrived at 4.5 lbs, wahoo!! now 6.4 lbs
And is at a healthy weight.


Rosie was found as a stray in California.  She was extremely emaciated and horribly filthy.  We are working to get weight on her little body.  She is an advanced senior in excess of 10 years.  She only has one tooth left in her mouth.  She did have three, but the others fell out when I touched them.  She is doing quite well eating her canned food and seems to be filling out more all the time.  She has cataracts and I don't believe she is hearing much.  Rosie has a foot that is not used.  She has been that way for some time as the muscles are atrophied on that limb.  She has no pain and does stretch it out at times, but is non-weight bearing on it.  Rosie is an absolute love and is thriving on attention.

Arrived 04/13/2018
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age: Approximately 5-6 years
Weight: 4.8  lbs


Candy is a super sweet little thing.  She loves couch time and is coming around quite quickly.  She can be a food guarder so feeding her by herself if other dogs are present will make her happy.  You can see from the pictures the curve in her spine.  From the xrays this appears to be a vertebrae malformation from birth.  This malformation causes her to have a funny little walk and she may have some arthritis because of the difference in her structure.  When she came to us from the shelter she had pneumonia.  She is clear of that now.  We have xrays and bloodwork that will go home with her.  She is still a bit on the slim side at her 4.8 pounds,  I would like to see her be right about 5.



Arrived 04/21/2018
Breed: Toy Poodle
Gender: Female
Age: Approximately 12-15 years
Weight: 6 lbs
(very underweight - working to get to a health weight)


Advanced senior girl who needs a loving place to hang out. She has some trouble in her hips that cause her to have a funny crooked walk and to have some incontinence issues.  She is doing great with her doggie diaper.  Precious has been doing well with our weight gain program, but not quite where we want her yet. 


Arrived 04/28/2018
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age: Approximately 10+ years
Weight: 10  lbs
(extremely overweight)


Advanced senior girl with some significant medical concerns.  Ariel is a sweet girl and loves her cuddles.  She is paralyzed in her rear and at this point is not able to manage a wheel chair.  As we get weight off of her we are working to develop some strength in her front that will allow that.  She is looking for a home who will provide her with the love and attention she disserves through her end of life.


Arrived 05/06/2018
Breed: Chinese Crested or
Shih Tzu Mix
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately 5 years
Weight: 10 lbs


Doodle is a fun little man.  He is silly and animated and definitely on the higher energy side.  He does need some training in greeting and can have a tendency to guard his space.  He is very responsive with training and i expect that he will quickly overcome his learned bad habits We are looking for an active home with no young children.

The above pics are after his fancy new hair cut.
Below are pre spa-day.


-Rosie T-

Arrived 05/11/2018
Breed: Toy Fox Terrier
Gender: Female
Age: DOB 02/01/2016
Weight: 4.5 lbs


Rosie has come back to us through no fault of her own.  The family we placed her with discovered extreme allergies so the situation just didn't work out.  She is a tiny girl that is fun loving and outgoing.  She needs a place to be able to run and play.  She did begin to learn some obedience basics and is very smart in picking up new things.



Arrived 05/06/2018
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age: Approximately 10+ years
Weight: 10+ lbs


Clover is is a sweet older girl who is diabetic and nearly blind.  She gets around great with her limited sight.  Most of the time you wouldn't realize how limited she is.  She requires twice daily insulin injections, and will require regular blood work at the Vet.  We have gotten a pet test meter and are working to ensure she is level.  She will be getting her spay once we feel confident in her levels.


-Baby Bear-

Arrived 06/01/2018
Breed: Pomeranian / Corgi? or Doxie?
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately  years
Weight: 10+ lbs


Baby Bear is coming along well.  He is a cautious boy and does not prefer men.  I believe that the right man may win him over, but his reactions tell me that he may have received some kind of abuse from a man.  He is also very protective of females, so the situation may be protective of himself and the lady he claims as his own.  Because of his reactions we are looking for a home without children.



Arrived 05/31/2018
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately 11 years
Weight:  10+lbs


Bentley is a boy who was in our care back in 2011.  He is a super sweet senior guy that lost his home due to a move where he couldn't stay with them.  He is engaged and easy going.  He is another victim of a groomer that doesn't understand shaving is the WROST thing you can do to a Pom coat. Because of his shave he has dry skin and bald spots that we are working very hard to help recover.  Poms should NEVER be shaved.  There are ways of trimming into a great cut without causing damage to the skin and coat.  Shaving removes all of their natural protection from the heat and cold and allows the sun to reach the skin burning it.  It will be some time before we know if his will recover and grow naturally again or not.



Arrived 06/16/2018
Breed: Long Coat Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately 4-5 years
Weight: 6.5 lbs


Blaze is a neat little guy who I believe has the potential of service dog status.  He has only been her a few days and is still slightly on the shy side, but I see his level of engagement getting stronger each day.



Arrived 06/16/2018
Breed: Long Coat Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately 1 years
Weight: 8.6 lbs


Corey is a cute little guy who is very guarded about new situations.  He is responding to us well, but is still in the transitioning from all of his experiences in the past couple of months.

*** Pictures will be coming soon.  We are going to give him a few days to adjust ***


Arrived 06/16/2018
Breed: Long Coat Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately 12 years
Weight: 8 lbs


Cayenne is an older goober who is sweet.  At this point he is very thin and has some issues we are working to understand.  He has a rear leg he is favoring but is improving so seems to be the result of an injury.

*** Pictures will be coming soon.  We are going to give him a few days to adjust ***


Super cute video :)
