-Spidie Man
Arrived 05/06/2015
Breed: Toy Fox Terrier
Gender: Male
Age:  Approximately 2-3 years
Weight:  5 pounds

Spidie Man came to us from an Oregon shelter. Super sweet little Toy Fox Terrier.  Super long legs on this boy. Loves to be under the covers and has to arrange his blanket just the perfect way.  05/09 - When I cleaned Spidie's teeth today I discovered that he is a much younger guy than the 6 that the shelter had indicated.  He has very healthy gums and white teeth with still had a couple of retained puppy teeth (got those out).  I am marking him at 2-3, but he may be younger than that.

**Special Needs**

King is a special little guy who has been through a lot in his short life.  He has been here for a bit as we reviewed his medical needs and made adjustments to his treatments.  He has quiet a history with three knee surgeries, a back injury, head injury, eye injuries, and 9 months ago cushings diagnosis.  When he arrived he was a surely little bear, grumpy and unhappy.  We have adjusted his meds taking him completely off of the opiate he has been on for the past 5 years and greatly reducing the Tramadol.  We are not allowing him to be in pain, but have reduced it to only what is necessary.  We believe the opiate was causing some on the mood issues and have seen huge improvements.  I actually believe (although my vet does not agree with me) that the long term pain meds may have caused or triggered the cushings, so am hopeful that there will be improvement there and he will be able to eventually come off of that medication.  Going forward King will need bloodwork on a 6 month basis. The basic pannel runs about $180 and the cushings test is about $250.  He also will need continued meds.  The cushings med runs about $15 a month.  We are looking for a quiet home with someone will be up front with his surly behavior.  He takes his meds like a champ and loves to go for walks on the leash.  He does best when not coddled, but is confronted with a firm and loving voice and movements.  We are seeing behavior improvements every day now that his system is free of some of the long term meds and he is responding very well to exercise, regaining better movement all the time.  He will always have a funny gait as a result of the in-effective knee surgeries and the old back injury, but he moves and is not in pain.  We are doing some work on our hot tub and are hoping to get him started on swim therapy shortly.

08/01 - King is doing great.  He is totally off the pain meds now and shows more of his real personality all the time. He is a playful little guy who has a to say to anyone who will listen.  He is getting more of his coat back, although it may stay patchy in some areas.   I suspect that there is some clipper alopecia in some areas, along with the Cushing's.  Here are some new photos showing off his "puffy coat".

The pictures below were one month after arrival.


(with a capital T)
Arrived 06/22/2015
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Male

Age:  DOB 07/01/2014
Weight:  4 pounds
**Special Needs - Legg-Calve-Perthes
surgery done and recovery on-going.**

08/21 - Trouble is doing so great.  He is using his leg most of the time now.  Skips a step just once in a while.  Such a sweet loving baby.  At this point we feel that continued water therapy would be beneficial, it is not a requirement of placement. He does need to continue with increasing his walking distances, as well as continuing with stretch and massage.

08/01 - Trouble's first water therapy session.  He seemed to really enjoyed it and did a great job.
07/29 - Trouble is here YAY He is such a good boy - doing great in the 8 days since his surgery. He is hanging out in my lap, right now, getting used to all the sounds around us. He is beginning to do some weight bearing on his surgery leg, which is great at this stage. Resting today, then tomorrow we will start some very gentle physical therapy. His stitches won't come out for a few more days so the water therapy will wait until then.

07/22 - Trouble had his surgery on Monday and is doing great. He will becoming to me in just a few days.  Once his stitches are removed we will start on water therapy.  Until then we have stretching and massage to get him on the road to recovery.

06/22 - Trouble (with a capitol T) is in need of some help. This tiny guy has Legg-Calvé-Perthes and needs surgery. We have a great vet who has agreed to do this procedure for $700. Trouble is a one year old boy with oodles of attitude. We are accepting applications for his adoption, but he will not go home until after his surgery and recovery.

Cooper is a fun and engaging little guy.  He walks well on a leash and appears to have at least some house training.  Cooper has only a few teeth left, but still prefers his kibbles.  He had a benign tumor removed from the back of his head and that has healed up nicely.  Cooper has been very well loved and is looking for someone amazing to spend the rest of his life with.

Tippy is a sweet little thing.  Loves her cuddles.  She is missing quite a few teeth, but nothing that affects her eating.  She is active and engaging.  It does not appear that Tippy has had much leash training, she is pretty terrified when we go out.  She came to the shelter as a stray so it could be that she just needs to get past some scary stuff.  Tippy does appear to understand what pee pads are for.

BeeGee is a shy girl who will need some patience and understanding. She can be fearful in new situations but is coming along well through all of the transitioning.  She is doing great in the crate. She was not fond of the leash for photos, but I suspect she will do better on a harness.
