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

06/27/2016 - The construction continues.  Funds are definitely needed here.  Right now the lumber is our heavy hitter.  We were able to find windows from Habitat for Humanity so saved lots there.  All the windows and doors ran $100 rather than the $700 we were expecting for just the windows.  See more detail on this page Expansion Project.

Please join our Facebook group to follow all the changes as we go through this process.

Arrived 10/28/2015
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Male

Age:  approximately 7 years
Weight:  5.5 pounds

People keep asking me if our page is current... yes Simon is still here and yes our page is current.   He has actually had very little interest and he is a super sweet and engaging guy.  He has been the star of the rescue events, loves children and adults.  He has done great with our cat, but can be selective of his cat companions, they scare him if they hiss at him.  LOL.   Simon is an amazingly sweet guy. he comes to me and asks to be picked up, and loves to hang out on my lap when I am on the computer. He engages well with those he meets and had a blast with everyone at our rescue event.  He can be possessive of the blanket.  When he is underneath it is clearly his blanket.


-Captain Jack Flash-
Arrived 11/17/2015
Breed: MinPin/Chihuahua/Pom
Gender: Male

Age:  approximately 6 years
Weight:  7 pounds

Jack is a absolutely effusive lover. He is a star at our rescue events greeting everyone with enthusiasm.  He loves curling up with you under a blanket and will absolutely smoosh himself into your lap. He is an alpha dog so we are looking for a home that understands that behavior. We are looking for a home without very young children, older children are great. Where he loves children we think that his "in charge" attitude could be a potential problem with very young ones. He would be wonderful in a home that enjoyed obedience and rally activities.

Jack- "It's really cold out here... Can't I get in your coat with you?"
Me - "Nope"
Jack - "But I LUB YOU"
Me- "shoot.... how do I say no to that..."


Arrived 02/23/2016
Breed: Poodle / Havanese
Gender: Male

Age:  09/24/2013 - 2.5 years
Weight: 9.5 pounds

Bobby is a cool little guy.  He is definitely an alert dog and will let you know when there is something you need to be told about.  He is doing quite well in the crate through the night, but is very anxious to be outside right away in the morning.  He is a great cuddle buggy when couch time rolls around.  Bobby can be shy at greeting, but once he knows you he is your buddy.  He also has a tendency to be protective of his person so a home that understands that trait, or is willing to work with a behaviorist, is a must.


Arrived 06/05/2016
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female

Age:  approximately 3 years
Weight: 9.5 pounds

Mila came to us from a California Shelter.  She is sweet and engaging with everyone she meets, including children.  Mila appears to have had some housetraining and is doing well in the house and in the crate at nights.  She does have some separation anxiety so we recommend she be in her safe crate with an entertaining chewie when you are gone.   We are looking for a home where she will be with someone the majority of the time.  Someone who works from home would be perfect.  With her anxiety we will not be placing her in an apartment or close living situation.


Arrived 06/12/2016
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female

Age:  Senior about 9 years
Weight: 7 pounds

Chicky (aka Chiquita) came to us from a California Shelter.  Chicky is a love of a girl, she loves just hanging out on the couch.  She does have some senior stuff going on.  We have an appointment this week to have her health check.  I am anxious to find out about the mass on her lip, not quite sure what is going on there.   More details will be added once we have our vet evaluation.  She does appear to have some level of house training, possibly piddle pad as well.  She is doing great in her crate through the night.  She prefers to hang out with you, over being outside on her own, but is content to settle on the couch or in a doggie bed.  She believes that the back of the couch is the best place ever to keep an eye on the things that are going on under her domain.


Arrived 06/16/2016
Breed: Potentially Doxi/Yorki Maybe
Gender: Male

Age:  aproximately 1 year
Weight: 7.5 pounds

Riddle of the day - What is ? + ? and has springs in his feet - Answer Tyrion!
Tyrion is a perpetual motion machine.  He is effusively happy and loves to run and play.  He can be a bit frightened of new people, but give him a minute and he will sniff you out and invite you to play.  He is so totally ready for some obedience training and would be a great project job for someone doing agility or interpretive dance.  Tyron is a mix of something....   My theory is Doxie and Yorkie, but I am accepting other opinions.  His outer coat is very soft like a Yorkie coat...  


Arrived 06/16/2016
Breed: ShihTzu
Gender: Male

Age:  Senior about 9 years
Weight: 10 pounds

Gizmo was surrendered to the shelter after the passing of his owner.  He is a pretty sedate little guy who loves to hang out under your feet  He appears to have some house training and is tolerant of the crate, although it isn't his favorite place.  He does have some typical senior issues, but nothing that is major at this point in his life. 


Arrived 06/23/2016
Breed: Poodle
Gender: Male

Age:  approximately 7 years
Weight: 7.5 pounds

Gordon also just arrived to just figuring him out.  He does appear to be a more alpha type of personality and needs a bit of time to de-compress from his shelter stay.  He was very tolerant of his grooming, although feet and face were a bit of a challenge, but we managed it.  His coat is very thin and patchy, it appears that he is recovering from a flea infestation.  He had a little mass removed from his nose, but all is well there.  At this point an adult home is what we are seeking.

This book is specifically written for those who are adopting a dog for the first time. Many people who inquire about adopting a dog just aren't ready to do so. By no fault of their own, they get into a situation where they adopt a dog they can't handle and end up returning the dog later on. This book is being offered as a tool to make your adoption experience a successful one. Download your free copy here.
