-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 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 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..."


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 buddy when couch time rolls around.  Bobby can be shy at greeting, but once he knows you he is your bestest friend.  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 06/23/2016
Breed: Poodle
Gender: Male

Age:  approximately 7 years
Weight: 7.5 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.  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.


Arrived 06/26/2016
Breed: Poodle/Yorkshire Terrier (maybe...)
Gender: Female

Age:  approximately 3-4 years
Weight: 7.5 pounds

I have been trying to figure out what breed Nancy is.  Part sheep????  The closes I can come is the curly coat may be a poodle coat.  The shape of the head may be poodle.  Those wonderful stand up ears look to be Yorkie.  Not sure where the spots may be coming from.  She is a sweet, slightly submissive, girl who loves her belly rubs.  She is doing great in the crate through the night and walks well on the leash.  She has been using the piddle pads so there may be some house training.  She is doing great with the other dogs and wanted to play with my cat.


Arrived 06/28/2016
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Female

Age:  approximately 3 years
Weight: 8 pounds

Dulce was abandoned on the back step of my friends business.  She is a sweet girl with some self protection going on when she first came to the environment.  She is responding well and comes to me willing to for loving. She is enjoying cuddles and is getting along well with the other dogs.


(aka Cookie)-
Arrived 07/03/2016
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Female

Age:  approximately 3 years
Weight: 7.5 pounds

Binky (aka Cookie) has come back to us.  She just didn't fit into her new home.  Binky appears to have had a traumatic past.  She is fearful of most everything and needs a very settled life and someone who will let her come around on her own.  She startles easily and is learning to trust the people who are around her.  She does appear to have more issues with men, so a male in the household has to be content to let her come around on her own.  She loves to go on car rides and is happy to go shopping with her mom.  She needs to be in a comfie crate (den) when her people are away as she will search for you getting herself all worked up and stressed. She does great in the crate.  Binkie originally arrived to us on 01/31/2016 as Cookie.  She was in a home for almost two months before coming back to us.  She has definitely made improvements while she was gone, but her new owners will need to be patient as it will take time for her to adjust.


Arrived 07/09/2016
Breed: Toy Poodle
Gender: Male

Age:  approximately 7 years
Weight: 9 pounds

Harley is a bit of a chunky monkey.  He is super sweet and taking the transition quite well.  He was adopted out of one of our local shelters this year and the adopter is no longer able to care for him because of his own health issues.  Harley is pretty easy going and is doing well with the other dogs.  He loves to go walking and needs it to help get his trim figure back.


-Millie Bug
Arrived 07/17/2016
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female

Age:  approximately 2-3 years
Weight: 2.2 pounds - yes that is correct 2 pounds.

Super tiny little Millie is completely terrified on this, her first day with us.  We are going to give her a few days to settle before we try to identify what her personality and issues might be.  She definitely will need a home without young children, both because of her size and her current growly nature.  I expect the growls to diminish as she realizes that this is a safe place and all she gets is love and attention.


Arrived 07/19/2016
Arrived in California Foster 07/02/2016
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Male

Age:  approximately 5-6 years
Weight: 5.5 pounds.

Odin is a little guy who has been through a lot in the past month.  He arrived at a California shelter with a large open wound.  With the type of wound, a clean straight cut and pulling back of the skin, the vets agree that this appears to be a human inflicted wound.  The shelter vet cleaned the wound, stapled and inserted a drain.  We were able to take him from the shelter three days after the surgery.  At that point he had a pretty significant infection and was in some very severe pain.  He has come a long with since his arrival with us.  His wound is nearly all healed  and we are waiting just a bit to do his neuter surgery.  He is a super sweet little guy who is coming around very quickly considering what he has been through.  He has started playing with us and the other dogs and is a very sweet and open boy.  He does still show moments of fear and will begin trembling when something has made him unsure.

Photo Shoot Coming Soon

Playing on the couch just one day after arriving here with us.

Odin arrived with us in the loving arms of Holly.
Holly and her husband were vacationing near to where Naomi was fostering.

Odin under the loving care of Naomi who fostered him until he was stable enough to make the trip to us.

The first is the shelter picture right after his surgery.  I will never understand why they feel the need to shave the rest of his coat...
These show his incision and the infection.

Odin at his last California Vet visit.  Wearing his new body shirt to protect what was still at that time a wound left open to drain.

Wound progression - first is after removing the staples.
It is all open and infected at that point, second is three days later and third is right before traveling to us.

Super cute video :)
