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

07/31/2018 - We have a very active month planned.  On the 18th we will be bringing in 20 dogs from a surrender.  We will welcome volunteers with this surrender beginning the 19th as we work through teeth, baths, evaluations and vet prep.  This will be an active time. 

Along the lines of getting ready for this big intake we have escalated some of the work we are doing.  Today (07/31) we had the first truck load of gravel delivered for the ground prep on the new South runs.  I have a super hard working "rent-a-kid" helping me today.  Friday morning brings the first load of top soil and Monday the next.  Help in leveling and pulling out the old runs is welcome this weekend.  We have fence to pull, pavers to move, ground to level. and more.  This weekend will be a biggie as we are also working inside to try to get the new grooming area complete.  That work includes completion of the drywall and flooring, laminating the counter and connecting the plumbing.  With just two weekends before this intake we are working hard to complete these things so that it will be a much easier to manage the event.

Materials we are going to be needing:
6' chain link fence
12x12 pavers for the runs
cinder blocks for the edge along the building

Funds are needed for the gravel and dirt.  We will end up with right at $1000 in for all of that.
Additional funds for the Vet care of the dogs we intake.  We are estimating an average of $100 per dog.  Some won't need much but others are going to need a lot.

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.

Ariel has a guardian angel.  Her vet care is currently being sponsored by Kayla Joy Hirschmugl. 
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.  We found with her last Vet visit that Ariel was lot thyroid.  She is not on meds and doing much better.  She has begun loosing a bit of weight and is more interactive than she has been.  Ariel is looking for a home who will provide her with the love and attention she disserves through her end of life.

Breed: Chinese Crested or
Shih Tzu Mix
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately 5 years

Doodle is a fun little man.  He is silly and animated and definitely on the higher energy side.  He needs 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.  He can be selective in the dogs he wants to share his space with so we are asking for a meet and greet with any other dogs in the environment he may be sharing.  He would be amazing for an obedience or agility home.

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

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.  Bentley is a super easy going little goober who takes every thing in his life in stride.  He is a senior man who does have some vision and hearing impairment.  His sight seems to be mostly affected by the dark and sometimes I am not sure whether his hearing is about loss or selectiveness.



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.  He prefers a home without other dogs and can be bossy, telling everyone that he is in charge of the world.  Overall he is a sweet boy who just needs some really great training.



Arrived 07/28/2018
Breed:  Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately 7-9 years
Weight:  10+ lbs


Simba is a sweet guy a bit on the bigger size.  When we got him out of the California Shelter he was having neurological issues and some seizures.  We quickly discovered he had ticks and the cause of his issues was a tick born infection.   He is still on a long round of antibiotics, but we have had no more seizures and his neurological symptoms have cleared.  He is doing great with all that goes on here and is a super sweetheart.

Robbie has turned into a sweet boy that can be cautious with meeting new people.  He came to us from the Calif Shelter system and is adapting quite well to this new environment.  He is engaging with the other dogs very well.  Robbie has skills.  He has a very dependable "heal" and a perfect "sit".  It will be fun to discover what else he knows.

Ivy came to us from the California Shelter system after a dog had bitten her and injured her eye.  She had a very successful surgery and is compensating very well.  She is a super sweet girl who we are working with to get her back to a healthy weight.  She is loosing some, but it will take a bit of time and a measured food diet.  Ivy is a fun and silly girl that loves to be with her people.  She is super engaging and sweet.



Arrived 07/31/2018
Breed:  Papillion / Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately 4 years
Weight:  7 lbs


Courage is happiest being where his people are.  He would love nothing more than to curl up on your lap or trot along with you on walks.  He will be a relaxed easy-going companion.  He is a special needs guy as he has a spinal disk disease that will need care and monitoring.   Courage came to us from one of our local Oregon Shelters.



Arrived 07/31/2018
Breed:  Chihuahua
Gender: Female
Age: Approximately 8 years
Weight:  8 lbs


Momma came to us from one of our local Oregon Shelters.  She was surrendered there when her owner found herself living in her car.  Momma is very cautious of new people, but once she gets a connection she wants to be by your side all the time.  Her small eye is the result of a Pit Bull bite.  It is healed and should not be an issue.  She is also missing a portion of her lower jaw because of rotten teeth.  Her teeth have been cleaned and she is all healed, but does not like to have her mouth touched.  She eats just fine, but will need to have the remainder of her teeth maintained with annual dentals.  She also has some senior typical narrowing in her spinal spaces.


Super cute video :)
