Aida
Photos
Aida is a sweet senior who was left at the shelter. The shelter is no place for any senior to be so we gladly took her into rescue to find her a loving home with lots of TLC. Aida's age is not known but we believe her to be between 10-12 years old. She has some arthritis so is a little slow to get up but she enjoys and does fine with short walks. Aida likes being with her loved ones and will gently nudge you to pet her. She is fine with other dogs but we don't know how she feels about cats. Aida will make someone a very nice companion.

Buddy '17
Photos
Buddy is a very handsome 6-7 year old boy with the energy of a 4 year old.  He is housebroken and will be the perfect companion for the right adopter.  His forever home should be with an active dog savvy person, or couple, that will take him on long walks in different places so he gets to see a lot of varied landscape and situations.  He’s an active boy and would love a home where he goes on hikes and to dog parks to socialize.   He will need a home with a good amount of mental stimulation, like toys of all kinds and not just be left alone all day to keep himself busy.   Buddy knows sit and shake on command, his leash skills are good, and he enjoys being around other dogs.   A long daily walk or hike is a must in his forever home.  

Buddy will only go to an adult home with no children, or cats – we have not tested him with cats but we feel it is best to not have them in the household.  Oh, and he LOVES to go for car rides.

Cobi
Photos
Cobi is an approximately 9 year old, male Golden/lab mix. Cobi came to rescue when he ended up in a shelter. He has a quintessen-tial Golden/Labrador temperament and personality, he is super sweet and gentle. He has learned to use the doggie door in his foster home. He loves to go on walks, but short ones as he tires. If you are looking for a companion to hang out with and love, Cobi is the boy for you. Cobi gets along with dogs, but we don’t know about cats.

Jimmy '17
Photos
Jimmy is now looking for his forever home.   He is a smaller 2 year old Golden mix, who came to us in very bad condition.   His fur was very sparse, had an infection on one paw, had a large wound on his rear, and had been shot at with a BB Gun - we found BB's when we took x-rays.  He is now healthy and looking for his forever home.  Jimmy came to us terrified and afraid to even go outside.  Now he happily goes for his walks twice a day and ventures out to play on the grass and stroll along the sidewalks.  Jimmy will go to a single dog home with no cats.  He is fine walking with other dogs but does  not like them to come charging up to his face.  Walking beside each other is nice but wild and frisky companions scare him.  We have not tested with cats so he will not go in to a home with them. He's a sweet boy and has just blossomed in to a very nice young man.  He is 2 but those 2 years were hard years and now he needs a quiet, happy, understanding home.   Initially I would say no children in the home but they could come visit.   We have not tested him in a home with children, young or older.    He walks good on his leash, and is good in the car.

Kipling

Kipling is a wonderful, very sweet boy, who is now thought to be around 7 years old.  He came in to rescue in very poor condition and in great need of our help.  He is doing much better now and is looking for his forever home.  He has been tested with other larger dogs and is very gentle and good with his interactions.  My own personal dog thought he was a great guy.  He walks very well on his leash and enjoys spending time with the volunteers and hanging out laying around in the grass.  He even surprised us recently when we called him and asked him to sit, which he immediately did.  We all just stood with our mouth open and asked him to do it again.  What a delight.  Kipling is a quiet boy, a little hesitant upon initial meetings with men, but very happy to see women.  
 
Kipling loves treats and is a very gentle boy taking them, even highly prized treats.  If you would like a good companion, please check out this boy.

Marisol's Puppies
Photos
Marisol’s puppies were born on July 6, 2017 to their mother, Marisol, after she arrived in rescue.  All the puppies were given a 4th of July themed name.    Volunteers and staff members are the vet hospital where they were born sent in suggestions and names were picked.    They will be available to go in to a foster home to adopt when they are 8 weeks old.   The pups will have their first set of puppy shots and will be available to approved homes.   They are Goldeny mix puppies and their father’s info is unknown.   All pups are healthy, well socialized, and are now developing their personalities.   

We have 2 males – Blue and Boomer (adoption pending), and 4 females – Indy (adoption pending), Sweet Lips, Bell (adoption pending) and Liberty (adoption pending).

Nash
Photos
Nash came into rescue from a local shelter. He is a big boy, weighing about 130 pounds. This is too much weight for Nash but he will still always be large. We think he may be mixed with Golden Retriever and another large breed dog. Due to a low thyroid gland (not uncommon in dogs), Nash has had trouble losing weight. Now that he's on the correct medication (very inexpensive), he should start taking weight off much more easily. The low thyroid has also been responsible for his hair being so thin and not having much hair on his tail. These will go back to normal as he continues on his medication. Nash is a sweet, gentle 5 year old boy. He does not seem to mind other dogs and approaches them with curiosity. He will make someone a very nice companion. He has a lower energy level but that may change as his thyroid becomes more normal and he takes off some weight. We are still learning about him so we will update this information as we learn more.

Peyton
Photos
Peyton is a beautiful, happy 2 year old Golden mix girl. She came to us from a shelter with a bubbling curiosity and excitement about everything. She may have been left alone and missed some of her social skills training. Peyton will initially pull on her leash, but she can walk nicely, knows the “sit” and “down” commands, will stop when you stop, and loves to sit or lie next to you. But she is very alert and skittish when surprised by other dogs, certain people, skateboards, etc.. In these occasions she will lunge and jump against her leash. We think this is mostly a play signal relative to other dogs, but there have been occasional short growls. She is a smart girl, very treat oriented, and will be a quick learner in the right owner’s hands.

Peyton needs a home where someone will continue to work on her social and leash skills, with patient introductions to new things. She is a high energy dog and could use a few “good” walks a day and ideally some backyard play. She should not be taken to dog parks until her social skills improve. She might develop quicker as an only dog, but could live with a more mature dog. Her new home should not include cats or younger children. This new home should be on the calmer side so as not to overwhelm her. And she should not be left alone for long periods, as she is still basically a puppy.

Rhett Butler
Photos
Rhett is a beautiful red 18 month old golden. He loves running and playing with his tennis balls. He also loves playing in the wading pool!When handled roughly Rhett has reacted by biting (not causing serious damage) on two separate occasions. He is in training doing extremely well. But there is always the latent possibility with rough handling. The head trainer commented that Rhett is very smart and trainable. He is very treat motivated when training. Rhett needs to be the only dog in the home, no kids or cats for this boy.  We would like Rhett to go to a dog savvy home, with a large grass yard, and with continued help from a professional trainer.  Rhett would be happiest in a calm environment where people are home more often than not to reduce typical puppy behavior.
