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

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.

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.

Mr. Miyagi
Photos
Little Mr. Miyagi recently came into rescue from a local shelter. This little two year old boy only weighs 38 pounds and he looks like a miniature Golden Retriever. Most likely, Mr. Miyagi is a mix of some sort, possibly Golden Retriever and Cocker Spaniel, but we don't know for sure. He seems to be a happy guy and has done fine with all people he's met so far. We don't know much about him yet, but he will need a home where all children are 7 years and older. Mr. Miyagi is recovering from neuter surgery. He should be available for adoption soon.

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 permanent or foster home, where his training will continue. Rhett would be happiest in a calm environment where people are home more often than not to reduce typical puppy behavior.

TC

TC is an adorable, smaller, Golden mix, who is 2-3 years old.  He is housebroken, has been crate trained, rides well in the car, and LOVES his walks.  He is healthy, happy, friendly and loves everyone he meets.  He enjoys walking with a buddy and while he may bark at another dog on his walk, once he meets them, he's their buddy also.  He would love to have a yard to play in and his favorite pastime is "bush diving".  When he goes out for his walks, he's constantly looking for critters, bugs, lizards, just everything in the bushes so he can try to get them.  What does he do with them, I don't know.  I don't think he has actually caught anything.

TC's perfect forever home would be with an active person, who loves to walk and hike, is a single dog in the home but goes hiking or walking with another friendly dog.  I would suggest no cats, due to his wanting to chase everything.  He is friendly with children but only older children in their teenage years as he has not been tested with young children.  How would he do during the day if the adopter was gone for long hours - well his foster home worked long hours and someone came in to the condo to take him out for exercise and a walk, so this could possibly work if an arrangement could be made.

TC is happy, healthy, playful, and looking for his forever home.
