01/05/2017 - Welcome to a wonderful new year.  We have so much great stuff on our 2017 horizon.  We are expecting to be into our new building by mid year.  There is still a lot of finish work before we get there though.  We are expecting to need about $3000 more in materials before we are move-in ready, so donations still are greatly needed.  We have the electrical and plumbing nearly complete and hope to be starting with the hallway connection to the main house, insulation and drywall before the end of January.

We are way pleased to announce that we will be receiving an Intel Grant targeted for completion of the covered runs and covered entryway.  We have several events scheduled for those efforts.  Click here to see that schedule (.pdf)

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

Age:  approximately 7-9 years

Weight: 8 pounds

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.


Arrived 07/30/2016
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Male

Age:  6 years
Weight: 8 pounds.

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.


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 me now.  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.


Arrived 08/17/2016
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.


-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 09/18/2016
Breed: Spaniel Mix
Gender: Female
Age:  approximately 1year
Weight: 6 pounds

Gidget such an elegant pretty lady.  I believe she has had some abuse and she is terrified of most everything, including being touched.  We are working on getting her to allow handling.  Transition will be a very slow process for Gidget.  We are looking for a quiet home without children.  Other considerate pet companions will be considered, but dominate pets are not an option.  Gidget is piddle pad trained.  We have not worked with crate training as being put in and taken out of the crate is just to terrifying for her.  We also have not worked on leash training as the process of putting the harness and leash on her is just more than she can handle.  Gidget needs a place where she has limited access with no hidie holes.  If she were to hole up under the couch for instance it would be very traumatic for her to get her out.  She currently has our gated kitchen as her domain and does well.   She is gaining confidence every day but is not a lap dog at all.


Arrived 09/18/2016
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age:  approximately 2 years
Weight: 10+ pounds

Trixie has a genetic small eye, causes her no concerns at all.  She does get a little bit of tearing from it, but that is normal for this situation.  Trixie is a super sweet girl who loves hanging out with her people.  She is doing well in her crate through the night, but she would prefer to be near her people.  Trixie is great with children, while fostering with Sondra, Trixie and 2 year old Ella were buddies.  Trixie did wonderfully with all of Ellas attention, including hugs and musical serrinades.


Arrived 12/13/2016
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age:  4 years
Weight: 4.5 - 5 pounds

Manny is a love.  He needs a quite home where other dogs are not going to be pushy with him.  He has some thinning of some disks in his back and will need to be monitored for pain and inflammation.  At this point he moves around well, but a little awkwardly.  He engages with most everyone and has done very well with the other dogs.  I suspect he won't be keen on long walks, but as he gets some relief from back pain he may be more willing for that.  Our vet has him on some prednisone at this time to reduce inflammation and get him moving easier.  Manny needs someone who will commit to helping him get the care he needs for his back issues. 
Manny is a Helping Hands recipient for his neuter and back evaluation.


Arrived 01/04/2017
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age:  6 months
Weight: 7 pounds

Snickers is a fun and outgoing little girl.  Happy and fun loving with loads of energy she will make a great family pet.  She is speedy through an open door so training and caution are going to be needed.  She is just so happy to approach new stuff.  I love the white socks on her feet. 


-Ellie Mae
**Placement Pending**
Arrived 01/04/2017
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age:  1 year
Weight: 5 pounds

Ellie Mae is an adorable goober.  She is sweet loving and all about kisses.  She would do great in most any home.  She does appear to understand what piddle pads are for and does well in a crate through the night.


Arrived 01/04/2017
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age:  4 years
Weight: 5 pounds

Sissy is a stunning girl.  Sweet and endearing.  She is a tiny bit on the shy side, but coming around really well.  She is all about the cuddles and would do great in most any home situation.  She does seem to understand what piddle pads are for and is doing well in the crate through the nights.


Arrived 01/04/2017
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age:  1 year
Weight: 6 pounds

Louie is a cautious guy.  Sweet and engagig, but takes his time to get to know you.  He is going to have a wonderful super full Pom coat as and adult.  He does sneed some house training, but we will be sending home a belly band to help though the training process.  He does well in the crate through the night.  He was fairly tolerant of the grooming process - until we got to the butt - then he had to voice his displeasure at invasiveness, but after a firm discussion we made it through the process.


Arrived 01/04/2017
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age:  2 years
Weight: 8 pounds

Stevie is a chunky little monkey.  Sweet and endearing, loves his laptime.  He appears to have some piddle pad training, but more work is going to be needed there.  As with all my boys he will be going to his new home with a belly band to help through that process.  Stevie has a massive coat that will require regular grooming.  He is well suited for most any home.
