Dot is one of our alumni.  Originally arriving with us in 2012 when his owners moved and were unable to take him with them.  We placed him in a great home shortly after he arrived with us.  When that owners health began to decline, a couple of years ago, we began working with her again to keep him with her as long as she could manage.  Now she is no longer able to care for him so elDot is now looking for a great home that will understand his needs.

Dot can be a guarder of his space and people.  He responds best to someone who understands and will correct the behavior.  If the behavior is ignored or comforted he sees that as approval and will move further into the guarding behavior.  Corrections with him are pretty simple, just a very firm NO, then continue to do what you were trying and tell him how good he is when he allows it.  He does have a bite history with his behavior so needs a home without children.  He does not have many teeth left so his reactions are pretty harmless.  He is a definite "under the blankets" dog who loves to hide out where people are in the space.

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.

Before proceeding with this application please note - we only place our dogs within the Pacific Northwest area, which includes, Washington, Oregon and Idaho.


We can be contacted at

Visits are by appointment only, after we have an approved application on-file.
Please do not call me for detail on a specific dog.  Those questions are dealt with by email.
This will allow me to stay focused on the work that I need to do in caring for these little guys.
Once I have reviewed your application I will be contacting you at the email you have included in the application.
