Adoption Application
The adoption application is required prior to setting up an appointment to meet the dogs.
Meetings are done by appointment only after a complete application is received and approved.  The application is a key part to the interview process so please give me thoughtful answers as yes/no responses may be eliminated for lack of detail.

Please be patient while the pictures load.
We currently have quite a few dogs available so it may take a bit of time.

Arrived 02//15/2019
Breed:  Terrier mix
Gender: Female
Age:  5 years
Weight:  9 lbs


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.  Every time 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 aggression abused dog training.


Arrived 06/15/2019
Breed:  Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age:  approximately 6 years
Weight:  9 lbs


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 porpoery.  He is a sweet fun little guy with a wonderful prance for a walk.  Juno is a silly guy who would thrive working with obedience training.


-Dorothy and Rose-
The Golden Girls
Arrived 07/30/2019
Breed:  Poodle
Gender: Female
Age:  approximately - Rose 16 years, Dorothy 18 years
Weight:  7lbd Dorothy; 8.5 lbs Rosie


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 pretty well.

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.

Both are 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 cuddle!"


Arrived 08/10/2019
Breed:  Terrier mix
Gender: Male
Age:  Approximately 8 years
Weight:  8 lbs


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.


Arrived (returned) 09/20/2019
Placement Pending
Breed: Pomeranian
Gender: Male
Age:  approximately 8 years
Weight:  9 lbs


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 adventures.


and her Wee Ones
Arrived 07/12/2019
Breed:  Terrier Mix
Gender: Female
Age:  approximately 4 years
Weight:  7.5 lbs


Trisha is an amazing momma.  Super sweet and affectionate.
Where we are taking applications on Trisha, she will not be going to her new home until the puppies are 12 weeks and she has been spay.

The Wee Ones
We have two boys.
Sadly we lost little girl Lilly to complications resulting from her cleft pallet.
DOB 07/10/2019 - the night before transport.
We will be accepting applications for these babies, but they will not go to their new homes until they are 6 months old, after they have been neutered. 

**Placement Pending**
Champ is the more quiet of the 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 mommas.
