Bentley '17

Bentley had a rough time when he first came into Rescue, and now deserves a permanent home to comfort his senior years. This 10 year old sweetheart came from a shelter with a slight cough, which progressed into full pneumonia. He became depressed, lethargic and uninterested in eating. But with a lengthy vet stay, and the tender caring of our volunteers, he rebounded and you should see this guy now. He is a friendly, loving, bouncy, endearing, engaging little fellow. He likes to follow you around and lay at your feet when you settle in place. If you stop petting him he will nudge you with his paw or snout. Joy is rolling on his back inside, or outside in the grass. Tennis balls and soft toys are ecstasy for mouthing and self play. He loves his walks and has increased his distance as he feels stronger and better. Bentley has some ongoing medical conditions associated with senior status. He needs a one story home, with adopters who are home most of the time, and access to a yard. If you are looking for a young dog to take running or hiking with you, pass on Bentley. But if you can offer a quiet home and are compassionate about providing a comfortable environment to this sweet handsome guy, please let him know.

Jimmy '17
Photos
Jimmy, a 2-yr old Golden mix, arrived in rescue several months ago. He had a rough former life and spent his total life outdoors surviving. After spending time with our volunteers, his life has changed drastically. Everyone who meets him just loves him. He is a very happy boy! This small Golden mix is very, very sweet and loves attention. He loves to play ball and go for walks. Jimmy is good on his leash and very good on his car rides. He would do well in an adult home where someone is home during the day for frequent potty breaks and play times. He is good with other dogs but has not been tested with cats. He enjoys attention and being with people, plus sleeping on his dog bed. Jimmy is enjoying his time with his foster family but is now ready for his forever home.

Kipling

Kipling is a great and very handsome 7-yr old.   He came in to rescue in terrible condition but after time with us, he has gained weight, his coat is GORGEOUS, and he is still looking for his forever home.   We have discovered his real name, Oso, and he responds to that with obedience commands like sit, down, shake, come, heel.   He had been a much loved dog at one time.  He enjoys spending time with our volunteers, going for nice easy walks - he now has a bounce in his walk and loves the time on the walk "checking out all the bushes".    He is housebroken, loves to sleep on his dog bed, is great taking his treats with a gentle mouth,  and is still looking for his forever home.   The perfect home would be one with a single owner and no other dogs - he is fine with dogs on his walks but prefers to not have to share attention with another dog in the home.  He does not like other dogs running up in to his face on walks but once he has met them, he very quietly goes off walking with them.   He enjoyed meeting my own dog and she thought he was a very handsome boy.  He would do great all day while his owner is working and really prefers to sleep on his dog bed and wait for someone to come home.   A couple pats on the head and he is totally happy with that.   Then the owner could make dinner, watch TV and if Oso wants to, he can come watch TV with her/him.  He's not a huggy, grabby dog, just a great companion and a pat on the head makes him very happy.

Scrappy
Photos
Scrappy is an 8 year old boy who was surrendered by his owner to a shelter. We are calling him a Golden Retriever mix, but he looks very similar to a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. Unfortunately, he won't tell us his parentage. When he came to Rescue his teeth and gums were in bad shape, but now are clean and shiny. He had no other health issues. His owner had told the shelter that he was an outside dog and didn't like little dogs and cats and barked at everything. We've walked him past little barking dogs and he showed no interest. He does pull towards cats. And the only barking we've observed is at Fed Ex and mail trucks.

Scrappy seems curious about other dogs. When they pass by his little yard he runs back and forth playfully. He has not expressed an interest in a soft frisbee or balls. He would rather grab some human attention. He watches intently and cries when his caregivers leave him alone. Like most retrievers he would prefer an adopter who is home most of the time. Scrappy will best fit in a home without a small dog or cats and without small critters like squirrels outside his window. He might need some time to adjust to being an inside dog, but has done well in boarding. If you adopt Scrappy he will reward you with love.

Shiloh '18
Photos
Shiloh is a 3 year old, handsome boy picked up as a stray by animal control.  He has been very sweet with everyone and he likes the pets but he is also content to lay near you relaxing and watch the world go by.  He walks very nicely on the leash and rides great in the car. He knows sit and is particularly attentive when treats are involved.   He is not a demanding or rude dog but does talk a bit about things (a bit of a howl with a stutter) which is by no means a bother.  Not a long drawn out talk.   He has quickly bonded with whoever is with him and does seem saddened when they leave but then off to another person and he is happy.  He has been curious of other dogs and his meet and greets have all been calm, cool and collected.  Although we do not know his house manners yet, we believe that the home life will suit him fine.  He is looking for a home where someone is around more to keep him company.  A calm doggie like him would be fine but we don't know about his history with small children so no home with children under 7, please.
