Chelsea Lynn 
Photos
Chelsea is 2 years old and is the absolute sweetest girl full of hugs and kisses.  Her owner did not have enough time to give this youngster so he surrendered her wanting for us to find a family that can.  We are just beginning to learn about this girl but everyone she has met can only say how sweet and loving she is.  She does like to jump up and rest her paws on you which we will be training her to do a more appropriate behavior like sit.  She has met a few dogs and is curious but cats in the home will be challenging with this girl as she has become quite fixated on the resident kitty.  She will need some house training as this is the first time she has lived inside.  She is recovering from her spay surgery and living in a foster home so her availability is on hold.

CiCi - MEDICAL HOLD
Photos
CiCi is a 10 year old female surrendered to the rescue because the owner passed away.  The owner had had CiCi since she was a puppy so her transition has been hard for her.  Not in the best shape with being very overweight, a few lipomas, some dental tartar and a lipid on one of her eyes. Her fur had also been clipped close to her skin with some patches of fur loss.  Her owner had her current on her vaccinations so we started with doing a senior blood panel on her.  With that, we discovered that she has hypothyroidism.  This is one of the contributing factors with her significant weight issue and hair loss.  She is currently taking medication and will be re-tested in 3-4 weeks to see if her levels are therapeutic.

Jeanie
Photos
Jeanie is a very sweet 8 year old girl who loves to go for her walks.   She is good with other large dogs on her walks but she should be an only dog in her forever home.   She would be much happier.   Good to walk with her buddies then go home.   She does bark at small dogs on her walks, so we have restricted her intros with them.   Her perfect forever home would have no cats, no small dogs, single dog home.   Jeanie is not a dog that can go for long hikes but neighborhood walks would be great.   She appears to be housebroken and is good in the car.  Likes people and enjoys attention but not demanding.    She is currently on medicine for her arthritis, but she is by no means a dog that can’t enjoy her time out on her walks.   She also loves her tennis ball and returns it for more play.

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.

Lucilla
Photos
Meet Lucilla, a beautiful 9-year old blonde golden. Lucilla (or Lucy as we like to call her) is professionally obedience trained and understands basic commands.  She is good with other dogs and has lived with different cats. Her favorite things include going to the beach and playing ball in the yard. She LOVES playing fetch with our volunteers. She enjoys playtime with them so much that they often get tired out before she does! She is housebroken, good on a leash and in the car.

Lucilla’s perfect home would be an adult home with no kids (or kids who visit often) with a yard to play in.  She is very sweet but can become anxious with loud noises (like fire crackers) so she needs to find a home with someone who is home more than not during the day. She is looking for an owner who is patient and loving and is willing to work with her anxiety issues when they arise.  Even though she loves to play ball in the yard, she shouldn’t be left outside alone for long periods of time. She is definitely a housedog. If you’re willing to make the commitment to nurture this sweet girl, she could be the perfect dog for you.

Sargent Major

​Bath, medical care, good food and love may be what this boy has been missing but that is in the past.  Sarge was caught by Animal Control and brought into the shelter as a stray.  We don’t know what his background was like but he will be getting a fresh and loving re-start.  The doctors and us guest-a-mate his age to be 8 years so we will be conservative and say he is between 8-10 years old.  He has some lumps and bumps, hair loss (probably from fleas), and could use to gain a little weight as we can easily see his ribs.  He is a tall fellow but currently weighs 72lbs in hopes of adding to that.  What a handsome boy this guy will be!  When at the shelter, he had a roommate that was a pretty frisky pup, but Sarge was just mellow, calm and friendly.  His approach to life, be it riding in the car, walking on the leash, and meeting new people can be characterized as “chill” with a touch of “curiosity.”  Our volunteers and foster is building up his stamina with some nice walks and some good food.  We still need time to learn more about this guy and to make sure all his physical ailments are taken care of before we place him but we can say that he will be looking for a home with no small children.

Stanley Sweetness

What a story this boy has so far!   Animal control found this boy in a tent set up by a homeless person.  He was caught munching on some marijuana plants so the shelter administered medications to counter the toxicitity of the cannabis.  Stanley did very well with the treatment and had no side effects or damage from the drugs.  

Living on the streets did not allow for this boy to get any medical care as he was not neutered, overweight, had ear infections, some dental tarter, hair loss and fleas, and tested positive for hypothyroidism.  Now neutered and getting medication for his ear infections and hypothyroidism, along with a few baths, Stanley is feeling and looking better.  He does have some arthritis but we have also started him on some anti-inflammatories to help with the stiffness.  Once the medication kicks in and becomes therapeutic, Stanley will be able to loose some weight which will help with his arthritic issues.  

We have discovered that he likes to play and fetch the ball and will bring it back and drop at your feet.  His house manners have been great and he likes to go for walks..  He seems to love the indoors and he does some communicating through snorts, quite hilarious.  He is getting along fine with his foster brother and he does not react much to cats.  He loves to ride in the car and will sit and just look out the back window the entire time.  Of course, his favorite thing to do is eat, (typical!).  But, he will need a home that will be diligent in his weight loss journey so that his joints don’t suffer.

TC

TC is an adorable, smaller, Golden mix, who is 4 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" and lizard chasing.  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.

TC's perfect forever home would be with a person who loves to take him on walks  - no hiking but nice walks to check out the neighborhood. He would be best as a single dog in the home but he’s okay walking with another friendly dog.  No cats due to his wanting to chase everything.  He is friendly with older children but he has not been around small children, so visiting older children would be fine. He has done fine in his previous home being alone during the day, so with proper access to outside and a secure yard, he would do well.

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