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

09/08/2016 - Things have been hopping around here.  Between the influx of California Kids, the build and the heart surgery needed for Stacy Lou Who we have definitely been on the crazy side for a bit.  We have an official estimate for Stacy's surgery of between $2200 and $2300.  We are still working the fundraising side, but will be posting her surgery date soon.  We have several wonderful kids available right now, several of them have come to us through our California program.  Also - on the expansion side of things, this weekend is our roof raising.  We just came home with a load of lumber and are hoping to have the wood part all completed this weekend.  There are several projects that have seen progress over the past couple of weeks and I will be posting a huge update on all of that first of next week.  See more detail and LOTS of pictures on this page.

-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 one of our stars 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 can be an alpha dog so we are looking for a home that understands the slightly bossy behaviors. 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 become a problem with very young ones, if training is not followed through with. 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..."

Gordan takes his time getting to know people.  Once he accepts he is generally very sweet.  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 and is recovering.  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 first set of photos were taken 08/09/16 as you can see he is getting thicker in the coat all the time.

These are the pictures taken upon his arrival.  His coat is much improved.

Ziggy came to us after the death of his owner.  He is a bit on the skittish side, but is coming around well.  When I go to pick him up he will shy away from me, then leap up into my arms.  At this point he isn't much of a cuddler, but I can see that potential there.  Even though Ziggy and TT came from the same home I do not feel they are bonded - they actually argue often so would like them to have homes of their very own.

TT also came to us after the death of his owner.  TT was the first to come to me.  He will shy away when things are scary but leap up into my arms.  Even though Ziggy and TT came from the same home I do not feel they are bonded - they actually argue often so would like them to have homes of their very own.


-Stacy Lou
Arrived 08/14/2016
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female

Age:  Approximately 2-3 years
Weight: 10+ pounds.

Stacy Lou is a super sweet little girl. She response so well to commands and loves to hang out for attention. Her small left eye is a birth defect that is moist and does not require any medical treatment at this time, just monitored to ensure it remains moist. She has been sweet with the other dogs and ignored my cat. She is lovely on a leash and was so very good at the Vet and Cardiologist.

With Stacy Lou's vet visit we have found that she has a very enlarged heart and a 4/6 murmur. We will be contacting cardiologists next week to see if we can find one that is willing to work with us on payments or reduced costs. Specialists are expensive and we truly appreciate any and all assistance in covering this additional expense. We have an appointment to see Dr Woods at Cardio NW on the 1st.

09/08/2016 We have an official estimate from the Cardio Surgeon between $22 and 2300. We have applied for funding from a couple of sources, but cannot depend on those. Surgery date is 09/28. This link is to the surgeons estimate.

09/01/2016 We had our visit with Dr Woods. She has a condition called PDA. The good thing is that this is completely operable. Her murmur is 5/6 on one side and 6/6 on the other. There are no issues with the valves and the surgery will resolved everything. Here is a link to a sheet that Doc provided explaining what PDA is and what the surgery entails.

Over the next few days we will be working to determine which Cardio Surgeon we will be using and get the surgery scheduled. In the meantime this surgery is going to cost a minimum of $2500 so we have created a new fundraiser specific to her needs. Please donate and share - every single dollar will make a huge difference. Oh - Doc also indicated that he does not believe she is 5 years that we first thought, he figures 2-3, so I have updated her age indicated above.

River is a love.  She is a senior girl who appears to have been attacked by a larger dog.  She has lost part of one ear, which has healed up well.  She also suffered a dislocated hip and still is having some issues related to that.  We have started her on some homeopathies to help with joint healing and are working a mild exercise routine to help in strengthening.  I am hoping to get her started with some water therapy, but want to give her a few days to adjust before starting that.


Arrived 08/14/2016
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Male

Age:  Approximately 3 years
Weight: 6 pounds.

When Duke arrived he was a terrified little guy.  Taking things slowly and giving calming homeopathies have made a huge difference in him.  He is totally engaging and will settle and cuddle with him.  There are things that he startles to, but those are getting better all the time.  We are looking for a home without very small children as there is a bite risk when he is in his frightened state.  He is doing great in the crate through the night and having no issue with the other dogs or my dog savvy cat.  He is good on a harness and leash.

Peter is an adorable senior boy who would love to be a bed dog and hang with someone who loves him.  His malformed rear leg is a birth defect that he has learned to compensate well for.  Peter has cataracts in both eyes and may be blind or nearly blind in one of them.  He also has a low grade heart murmur.  His coat loss appears to be the result of clipper alopecia and exposure of the skin to the environment.  We are giving him medicated baths, adding coconut oil to his food, and protecting his skin from exposure, to help restore the coat.  At this point I am uncertain if his coat will grow back or not.

Breed: Pekinese
Gender: Female

Age:  10 years
Weight: 9 pounds.

Jill is an absolute love of a girl.  She came to us from one of our Oregon shelters after being found as a stray.  She has a tendency for dry eye in on eye requiring daily ointment.  She also arrived at the shelter with a sever case of fungus and yeast infection on the skin.  She is responding well to treatment and is super tolerant of bathing.  She appears to have some level of house training.


Arrived 08/26/2016
Breed: Pomeranian

Age:  10 years
Weight: 6 pounds.

Precious is a senior girl who would love to hand with her people all the time.  She has some typical senior issues, a bit of cludiness in her eyes and some arthritis in her hips and knees.  She does have luxated patella's, but manages it well.  She is doing great with the other dogs and has done well in the crate through the night.  She was pretty anxious about getting pictures so will take more in a few days after she is more comfortable.


-Dezi & Lucy
Arrived 08/26/2016
Breed: Pomeranians
Gender: Male and Female bonded pair.
These kids are only going to be placed together.

Age:  10+ years
Weight: 5.5 pounds each

Dezi and Lucy are bonded senior kids looking for a place to live out the rest of their lives.  They nearly didn't make it out of the Calif shelter together, but we got them safe and will keep them together.  They have general senior complaints, and I believe that Lucy has had a stroke at some point.  She is doing quite well but there are some symptoms there.  They have been totally fine with the other dogs and are adjusting to life in my living room quite well.


Arrived 09/04/2016
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age:  approximately 2 years
Weight: 9 pounds

Jedi is a cool little guy who would love to have a home as the only dog.  He is fun and silly when engaging with the adults he has met, we have not has the opportunity to introduce him to children.  When left alone with another dog he can become defensive, which could be a result of his shelter exposure.  We are taking the introductions slowly.

Nikki is adorable.  She came to the shelter with a broken leg that is healing well.  We will be changing the cast out later this week so will have a better idea if further surgery is needed.  At this point we don't believe it is.  Nikki has done great with the other dogs and took a nap with my cat.  She is sweet and engaging and loves couch time.

Super cute video :)
