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

11/30/2017 - We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving and are hoping that you all have as well.  We had a wonderful visit with family along with a work party hanging dry wall.  We only have one area behind the sink that needs to be done.  I have the materials to do the finishing on the drywall and hoping to have that done by the time I decide what color to paint it...  Funds are still desperately needed for this expansion.  Our next step will be the flooring and we are looking at a $1500 bill for that.  We are making great headway and pushing through all the work ourselves.  Materials are what we need funds for at this point.  See more Expansion detail and LOTS of pictures on this page.

Arrived 05/19/2017
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Female
Age: Approximately 9 years
Weight: 9 pounds

Sammie has had a troubled history.  She 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..  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.

Age: Approximately 1.5 years
Weight: 7 lbs

Joy is adorable and has come so far since coming here.  She has had some bad abuse and is not very trusting because of it. She now allows us to pick her up regularly with a light blanket. She also is allowing 1 of us to pick her up with bare hands.  Once she is up and in our arms she snuggles down and is a love of a girl.  She needs a home with someone who is going to be able to initiate contact with positive reinforcement and let her come around at her own speed.  She does not adapt well or tolerate a loud or pushy environment.  We are looking for an adult only home and will be requiring multiple visits to know her better before placement.

Arrived 07/30/2017
Breed: LC Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age: Approximately 10+ years
Weight: 4.5 lbs

Hansel was found abandoned in a box in California.  After settling into our environment, Hansel showed us that he is a bit of an alpha boy.  He is bossy with the other boy dogs, not aggressive but can be very bossy.  We are looking for a home for him that has no other bossy dogs.  Hansel loves to hang on the couch in a lap and is an under the covers bed dog.  He is super sweet and loves people attention.  He is happiest following 1 of us around as we do our daily chores.


Arrived 09/03/2017
Breed: Toy Fox Terrier
Gender: Male
Age: 02/01/2016
Weight: 8 lbs

Kip is also a bouncy fox terrier who is FULL of energy. Kip and his sister Kara are a rambunctious pair of entertainers.  Kip also responds well to treats and has better control of his wiggles. Kip would thrive in a home with a lot of activity and energy. He is very busy and enjoys playing catch and jumping.  There is no doubt that Kip would be a super entertaining member of a family and could be taught a lot of tricks. He is a fun, silly and outgoing boy.  He has the personality and energy that would be perfect for agility or lure coursing events.  He is responsive to commands and easy to teach new things.

Arrived 09/03/2017

Allie is a happy silly girl.  She loves to be right beside me while I am working.  She would prefer a home of her own without other dogs, but does great with people of all ages.  We will consider a home with another dog as long a that dog is not dominate and their meeting goes well.  Allie is a dominate dog and wants to be the boss of the others.  She will need a home that understands that she is not the boss of the people and are willing and able to train to that.. 

Arrived 09/13/2017
Breed: Tibetan Spaniel Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years
Weight: 8.5 lbs

Mo has finally adjusted to things around here and is doing great.  In the house, where he is comfortable, he is a quiet sweet boy.  Mo needs someone who understands his desire to guard the house and his people.  He is very territorial of his surroundings and tries to keep others out and will threaten them if they persist.  For that reason we are looking for a home with no children.  He would benefit from visits with an in-home trainer, early on in his transition, to help his new owners to know how to deal with his fears and give them skills to help keep him calm when visitors come.  The first step is going to be a "sit and stay" when someone comes to the door.  Mo is high strung in the car (does well in a crate).  He does well meeting new people but his humans should be cautious when meeting people and animals while out and about.  We are searching for the best home for him with a secure yard and room to run and preferably a home where his the only dog.

**** A big tip - Mo knows how to climb so his new family should have a secure fence and be able to supervise him outside.  He figured out how to climb out of our 6' chain link dog run which has resulted in us putting a top on the dog run. Now he can play outside safely.  He does listen very well to recall commands once he is out of the pen, so he may be content not climbing out once he feels safe in his new home.  A home with doggie door access may allow him to come and go so that he isn't quite so driven to escape the fence.

Arrived 10/18/2017
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age: 2 years
Weight: 6.5 lbs

Katie was a special delivery arranged by one of our Oregon shelter workers.  She was very stand offish with us and very scared at 1st.  However, her 1st morning, Katie greeted us happily and eager to play.  She is super sweet and loves to dance around excitedly when she greets us.  Katie also has a little bit of a crooked walk and funny little show off dance.  She walks great on a leash and can also dances and spin in circles during "Tricks for Treats".   Because of her initial fears with new people we are looking for an adult only home with minimal children visitors.

**Placement Pending**
Arrived 10/18/2017
Breed: Papillion Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1 - 2 years
Weight: 6 lbs

Sandy was a special delivery from a rescue volunteer in California.  She left where she was, took a long road trip and arrived with us to help her find her fur-ever home. Sandy engaged immediately with uncontrollable kisses, wiggles and tail wagging.  She smothered us with kisses and responded like she had missed us or that she knew that we were going to help her find her new humans. She is so much fun to play with and watch how she interacts with the other dogs. Sandy is a natural comedian and seems to be joking around with the other dogs while they are playing.  Today we also discovered that Sandy might have a singing career in her future when she started mimicking me singing. 

Arrived 10/20/2017
Breed: Chinese Crested
Gender: Female
Age: 1.5 years
Weight: 8 lbs

Kissie is an adorable sweetheart with soft skin and baby fine hair.  She is shy at first and may try to hide but she is happy to come to you as soon as you find her.  Kissie is the perfect name for this timid girl, as soon as she is picked up and in our arms she gives generous love, kisses and happy wiggles.  Kissie has been very scared on the leash, so she will need some work to be able to comfortably go for walks. We would like to find Kissie a home with a human who can give her a lot of 1 on 1 attention and plenty of loving to reassure her that she is with someone safe.  Someone she feels comfortable with in peaceful surroundings.

Arrived 10/29/2017
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Female
Age: Approximately 5 years
Weight: 10 lbs

Phoebe is an anxious girl who does quite a bit of circling in the run.  She is responding to us well and is allowing handling quite well.  I love her adorable under bite, it gives her a unique look.  She needs a home that will show a lot of patience but still be persistent in teaching her that hands are good things and people touch shouldn't hurt.  Our California foster indicates that she did wonderfully with her toddler son.  Depending on experience of the applicant, we might require a couple of visits before allowing her to go to her home to ensure that she knows her new people and has more confidence in the transition. We would like to help her find the perfect humans with the perfect lifestyle that she will transition into easily.

Arrived 10/05/2017
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender:  Male
Age: DOB 09/14/2016
Weight: 9.5 lbs

Skittles is a sweet, shy, snuggle buddy.  He has been slow to warm up to any of us and seems nervous to be picked up and held.  Skittles is very confident on a leash, most of the time.  I always give him extra loves until he relaxes and seems comfortable in my arms before he goes to bed at night and again in the morning.  He does good with other dogs, as he is very passive.  I think Skittles would warm up quickly to being part of a family he feels safe in.  He is young so he would easily adapt to a life with his new humans in his fur-ever home. 

-Crayola Kids
Pinkie, Red and Blue
Arrived 10/29/2017
Breed: we are calling them "iggipoo's"
Italian Greyhound and Poodle
Gender: One Female, Two Male
Age: DOB 08/07/2017
Weight: 8-10 lbs adult estimate

These are the Crayola Kids.  They will be staying with us for just a bit, until they are old enough to be altered.
We are accepting applications and hope to have homes standing by for them.

These cute little iggipoos are full of energy and wiggles.  Their personalities are all playful and comical.  Puppy-craziness happens 24/7.  We joke about them being up all night having wild parties and keeping all the other dogs awake all night. 

We started calling them the 'Crayola Kids' because they came to us with names based on their collar colors. We considered changing their 'collar-color-names' but nothing else seemed to fit before we started referring to them as the "Crayola Kids"..... So- until they find their fur-ever families, they are known as Pinky, Blue and Red.
