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.

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

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

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.

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..

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
**** 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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.
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.
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.
