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

04/15/2019 -  Spring has sprung - well kinda.  We are excited that we are beginning to see the clearing in the weather so we can continue some outside work.  The Sweet Treat puppies have reached their six months and will be going to their homes this week.  Our iBabies still have a bit more time to go for June. 

We have seen a significant increase in our vet expenses so I will be kicking off a spay/neuter fundraiser in the next few weeks.  Hopefully we will be able to manage that increase and continue to do the great work we are doing in the special needs area.

Our summer expansion plans include the completion of two more awnings, and construction of a storage unit.
See more Expansion detail and LOTS of pictures on this page. Expansion Project

Meetings are done by appointment only after a complete application is received and approved.  The application is a key part to the interview process so please give me thoughtful answers as yes/no responses may be eliminated for lack of detail.

We currently have quite a few dogs available so it may take a bit of time.

Arrived 01/24/2019
Breed:  Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age:  9 years
Weight:  6.5 lbs


Bambi is an easy going little guy who was with us back in 2014.  He is back with us an extremely overweight little man.  We are working hard on getting him back to a  healthy weight, but it is going to take a bit of time.  Upon arrival he tipped the scale at 10 pounds - he should be about 6.  The Christy Craig diet is a strictly measured meal and lots of exercise.
03/20 - Bambi is doing great.   He is down to 7.5 pounds and feeling so much better.  He is now able to lift his head, without turning it sideways, and is playing with the other dogs.  
04/07 - Bambi is now to a good weight and feeling much better.  He is such an adorable love of a man. 
Bambi After pictures - Still a few left over skin rolls, but doing great.  Now a much more fit and trim little guy who loves his walks.

Bambi Before pictures.  He couldn't even lift his head up to look at me when he arrived.


Arrived 02/03/2019
Breed:  Corgi / Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age:  7 years
Weight:  10+ lbs


Bear is a very handsome man with some very specific desires.  He prefers to spend his time with women and really doesn't like men much and isn't interested in children much at all.  He also wants a home without any of those pesky kitties.  He is an amazing little guy who had a grumpy side and likes things the way he likes them.  When coming to meet Bear please be prepared to spend some time getting to know him.  We will have some yummy bribes to help break through the fear factor.


Arrived 02/06/2019
Breed:  Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age: approximately 5 years
Weight:  8 lbs


Cesar is an adorable little man.  He is affectionate and loving.  Super sweet and happy little guy who has been very well loved.  He lost his owner to death.  You can tell how well this little man has been cared for.  Super affectionate.


Arrived 02//15/2019
Breed:  Terrier mix
Gender: Female
Age:  5 years
Weight:  9 lbs


Chicky is a special case.  She has received some pretty intense abuse in her past.   We are seeing a lot of improvement, but she still had a long way to go.  She is looking for a home without children or other pets.  She needs someone who has some knowledge and experience in working with abused and defensive aggressive dogs.  She is in our kitchen where we walk through all the time.  Every time we pass her we engage her with a treat and command.  She is, at times, allowing us to pick her up, but startles very easily.  We see so much potential there.  She really wants to be a loved and loving pet, and is working hard to get past her fears.  Chicky's placement will require multiple visits to ensure she knows the people she is going home with.  They will also be required to continue training with an in -home behavioral trainer or have experience with defensive agression abused dog training.


Arrived 10/18/2018
Breed: Chihuahua / Mom was part Italian Greyhound
Gender: Male
Age:  SOB 10/14/2018  (six months in April)
Weight:  8 lbs  Estimate adult about 10bs


Rocky is the last one of our Sweet Treat litter.  Their momma arrived in a CA shelter in labor.  We were able to rescue momma and babies.  Rocky is an outgoing boy, a little more dominate in nature.  His family will need to be prepared to address training to make sure that they stay alpha in the home.  He is a sweet little man affectionate and silly.  I have left his baby pictures posted as I thought you would love seeing how he has grown. He has turned into a very handsome little man.




Arrived 04/12/2019
Breed:  Papillion Mix
Gender: Male
Age:  DOB 10/28/2016
Weight:  8.5 lbs


Osito is a sweet goober of a man.  Fun loving and energetic.  He has done great with pre-teen children, but may be a bit pushy for younger children.  He is definitely choosy about his doggie companions, and is very much the alpha when he is sharing his space with them.  He has so much fun and affection to share.  He is a young guy and needs some positive, structured and consistent training to harness his energies.


Arrived 04/07/2019
Breed:  Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age:  4-5 years
Weight:  7 lbs


Freya is a very unsocialized little girl who has some very special needs.  She will bond strongly with a primary caregiver, but tends to guard them from another person in the home.  I believe she is best suited in a quiet home with a single person and no other dogs.  I will consider couples where they have experience in dealing with this type of socialization issue.  She is adjusting very well to our handling, but if things are to crazy and noisy she will attempt to protect herself.  When she is in this state of mind we are able to easily pick her up using a blanket or towel over our hands.  The instances of needing to use the towel are decreasing all the time.  She will not be placed in a home with children, as she will bite when she feels threatened.


Arrived 04/27/2019
Breed:  Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age:  DOB 06/15/2013 - almost 6 years
Weight:  8.5 lbs


This little man has a bit of naughty mixed in with his sweet.  He is searching for a quiet home with one or two adults who have dog experience and no children.  He needs some structure and verbal correction.  He is responding well to leash corrections while walking.  He is doing well with the other dogs two or three at a time.  He is not a fan of a busy crazy environment.  Our impression of him is that he was never socialized well and has some self guarding instincts that are going to need structure to control.

More pictures will be coming soon.


Arrived 04/27/2019
Breed:  Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age:  approximately 12 years
Weight:  8.5 lbs


Spike is a very sweet senior guy.  He loves people, is affectionate and engaged.  Right now he has a bit of a naked butt as he is recovering from a tail amputation.  The shelter records do not specifically say, but we suspect he was hit by a car.  He is taking it easy hanging out under my feel helping me keep things under control.  He has done great with the other dogs and will make a very affectionate companion.

More pictures will be coming soon.
