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

04/06/2015 -  I am trying something new here. We have tried all kinds of air filters without much luck. The ones I have worked with all end up filled with dog hair and dirt, expensive for filters and simply don't work or don't last. Last weekend I brought home a new Triad Aer purifier and just over a week I am seeing huge changes. The first thing I noticed was that the dust motes that hang in the air are gone. The air seems clear and cooler. I have also been having fewer issues with my asthma and Wickett my seasonal allergy dog is having fewer issues. It is tough for me to determine if there is change in any odors, but I have someone who comes in the mornings to help me and she says, even though we didn't have bad odors, she smells an improvement with this new filter.

I have created a page where I will be posting updates we see changes in our environment.  I will also include questions and comments from others - good or bad.  I am way curious about the experiences of others.

FYI - we moved our fund raiser into You Caring rather than Go Fund Me.
The fees from Go Fund me were higher than we felt necessary.

-Emma & Ernie-
Arrived 03/29/2015
Breed: Pomeranian/Chihuahua Mix
Gender: Emma, Female - Wilbur, Male
Age:  3 to 4 years
Weight:  Approximately 8 - 9 lbs.

Emma and Ernie came from a Southern Oregon Shelter.  They are way sweet kids who have been through quite a lot.  They have flea and food allergies, as well as mites.  We have the mites conquered now and are working to get their infected skin under control.  Ernie's skin is the most irritated as you can see in the pictures, but every day it looks better.

I will not be splitting these two up as they are very bonded.

Arrived 03/16/2015
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age:  ~11 years
Weight:  Approximately 8.6 lbs.
***Special Needs - Heart Issues***

Dayton is a super sweet guy who needs someone to love and care for him.  When he arrived here he was suffering from an enlarged heart that was putting pressure on his trachea and affecting his breathing.  We have him on the right heart meds and he is a different dog.  Playful and outgoing with no more signs of a cough.  He is looking for a great home who will provide him the Vet care follow ups and heart medications he needs.  Super sweet boy who just wants to be with someone who loves him.

04/01/2015 - Dayton is on enalapril and vetmedin once a day, then we have hydrocodone for coughing as needed (8-12 hours). There was no fluid issues, so no Lasix. Now that the heart meds are working we have not needed to use the hydrocodone for a couple of days. He takes the pills in a pill pocket happily. As sustaining I would expect the cost for the current meds to be about $25 a month. He will need regular six month blood work to monitor his system and our vet is recommending an annual x-ray to monitor heart size. He will be getting a new x-ray on Friday so we can compare to the early one when he arrived. At the first vet weight he was 8.6 lbs - a bit overweight. Since he has been here he is on a measured diet and is feeling quiet fit. I am anxious to weigh him on the vet scale for comparison. He does great with the other dogs and has shared the bowl with my dog friendly cat. He is not neutered - our vet does not advise it at this time because of the heart issues. We will be discussing that further with her on Friday, but will make the decision based on his health needs. Her take was that she wanted him to be more stable for at least 6 months before undergoing impacts of sedation. He is improving so quickly though that might change.  AND -Amazingly enough for an 11 year old little dog - he has most of his teeth and his gums look great.

04/03/2015 - Dayton's vet visit went great today. Doc opted not to do an other x-ray, she indicated that he is so much improved it is going to be better to wait six months before doing another. We got his Rabies and she ok'd him to leave the area any time. She did not recommend neutering him at this time. She said at this point she recommends waiting until he needs a dental or is sedated for some other reason. Best not to undergo sedation for now. SO - now we just need to find the perfect home.

The pictures below were when he first arrived.  He has lost a full pound of weight and is feeling so much better in the above pictures.
Two weeks ago he wouldn't have been able to manage the 15 minute photo shoot and walk without collapsing from exhaustion.
Now he just wants to play, play, play.



-Teryion Duck-
Arrived 04/10/2015
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age:  ~1 years
Weight:  Approximately 5 lbs.

Teryion Duck "Duck" is a super charming little guy who wants to spend his time with you. As one of our Face Book followers said he has "Chiattitude".  He is a one year old boy who is eager to learn..


Arrived 04/12/2015
Breed: Papillion
Gender: Female
Age:  ~12 years
Weight:  Approximately 8 lbs.

Senior Papillion Stacy looking for a loving home to spend the rest of her life hanging out in.  She is a sweet and happy little girl.  She is totally toothless, but is still liking her kibbles, although will be giving her just a little canned along with it.


-Josie & Camper-
Arrived 04/12/2015
Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: Female & Male
Age:  ~7 and 10 years
Weight:  Approximately 8 lbs.

Josie and Camper are Shih Tzu's who have been together their whole lives. We will be placing them in a home together. Affectionate and engaging kids. Their original owner passed away and his daughter was caring for them. She lost her place to live because of them and became homeless. They have lived with a couple of other people while she was trying to get her live together and she decided it was in their best interests to surrender them to someone who could find them the perfect home where they will live the rest of their lives.
These two bonded kids are in need of a wonderful and loving home. 



Arrived 04/13/2015
Breed: Yorkie
Gender: Male
Age:  3-4 years
Weight:  Approximately 5 lbs.

Jackson has returned to us, through no fault of his own.  The senior Yorkie in the house was not able to adjust to the new addition.  Jackson was originally surrendered by a family member from an abusive situation.  He is doing very well but we are looking for a home with no young children.  The placement indicates that he was doing great with piddle pad training and responding to her very well.  We advise that a vet do his toenails, possibly with a bit of a sedative as he gets super upset with that.
