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.
we pass her we engage her with a treat
and command. She is, generally, 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. A new home
must also be willing to continue training
with an in -home behavioral trainer or
have experience with defensive
abused dog training.
Age: approximately 6 years

Juno would like to have a home without
other dog competition. He loves
his people and can be a people guarder.
For this reason we are also looking for
a home without young children. He
has not been bitie, just pushy, but that
is behavior that needs someone who
understands it and can control it
is a sweet fun little guy with a
for a walk. Juno is a
silly guy who would thrive working with

Dorothy and Rose are senior girls that
were surrendered in one of our Oregon
shelters together with the loss of the
mom and decline in health of their dad.
They were in pretty rough shape when
they got to us and are doing great under
the care of Adria. The following
notes are from Adira "Dorothy is very
sweet, likes to be cuddled. She is
partially blind, but gets around very
well. She has a healthy appetite
and knows exactly where her potty pads
are. She know how to go outside
and potty on command. She does not
seem to have any health concerns other
than the partial blindness and some old
age mobility aches and pains.
Rosie who is a bit bigger and younger.
She is a lot more adventurous and enjoys
wandering around the yard finding every
water feature, She has a great
appetite and follows around the house.
she is going up and down the stairs and
knows how to potty outside and does a
pretty good job finding her potty pads."
09/15 update from Adria -
"The golden girls are both adjusting to
life as fosters and are doing great.
Dorothy, Goosie to me, is the slightly
older girl, blind in one eye and
toothless, gets around very well.
She eats well and continues to be in
good health, other than a slight eye
infection which we have her on meds for.
The doc guesses her to be around 14
rather than the initial shelter guess of
18. she is super sweet and
affectionate. She doesn't mind
going for car rides and walks on a leash
Rose, sweetie as I call her, continues
to be the adventurous one. She
enjoys wandering around the back yard
and knows our routine very well.
She runs up and down the stair and trots
around the house very well.
I would guess her to be 12 or 13, rather
than the 16 year shelter guess.
starting to look like real poodles now
that their hair is coming in. they
are super fluffy and very cute.
The are both really sweet dogs and a joy
to be around. They get along with
the other dogs very well and love to

Midnight is another slightly shy boy
with a great under bite. He is
adjusting to us very well, gaining more
confidence every day. He is a pretty
affectionate dog, but doesn't settle
long on a lap. He seems to prefer
four feet on the floor. He does
great on the leash.

Sadly Moogie is back with us again. This
little guy has so much great potential.
He has been badly abused and has some
instinctive reactions that need someone
who understands the behavior and/or is
engaged with a behavior trainer to teach
them. He is such an adorable
squishy looking little man that people
just don't understand he has issues that
need help. Pets are OK he does
well with the other dogs. This
last adopter was doing great with
training and most of the domination
issues, he even had him working in the
water with a surfboard. He was
with them only a 6 weeks, which isn't
even long enough to get through to an
abused dog. After refusing to
engage with a behavior trainer they have
returned him to us.
Moogie has so much wonderful to him
super sweet and playful. I see him
as 80% sweet 20% naughty. Of
course in a new environment, as he
figures out what the requirement and
structure is, that may seem to be
backwards for just a bit. The home
we are seeking will have no children and
they will be committed to being Moogie's
forever home no matter what. They
need to have training skills (or close
guidance by a qualified trainer)
specific with dominate abused
personalities. He wants so much to
be a sweet dog, but his dominate
personality needs structure to overcome
what has happened in the past. We
have not seen the issues here as we are
very firm and structured with him.
He seems to have his issues in a
environment that reminds him of the
situation where he was abused.
He definitely tests the boundaries and
response needs to happen right off the
bat. They were pretty successful
with the "tethering" method where the
dog is on the leash fastened to your
belt so that he stays with you all the
time. this is a great method for
getting that initial Alpha roles started
out. He needs a quite environment
with lots of exercise. He does not
do well as a bed dog as this gives him a
level of dominance. He needs his
safe crate den at night.
OH - and of course he came back with one
of those horrible clipper cuts.
Trust me - after 20 years in Poms this
is one of the worst things you can do do
a double coat. Brush and trim only
will allow the coat and skin to breathe.
Cutting like this will in no way keep a
dog cooler. It is actually letting
more heat into their body because his
insulation has been removed.
The below pictures were from Moogie when
he first came to us. These show
his coat when it was just beginning to
come back into health.
Here is Moogie with his surfboard

Trisha is an amazing momma. Super
sweet and affectionate.

home until the puppies are 12 weeks and
she has been spay.

two. He is showing
definitely poodle traits with
his curly coat.
Scout is more outgoing and seems
to have a more terrier
personality. I suspect his
coat will look much like his
