Aida

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.

Alyssa

Alyssa is an 8 year old female who came to us from a shelter.  Initially very frightened & timid she has blossomed into a sweet, gentle and loving golden girl.  She LOVES people.  At her foster she is a typical golden following you from room to room, sitting or lying by your side, a paw in your lap.  She walks nicely on leash and likes to meet people and receive their attention.  She loves her squeaky and stuffed toys.  She rides nicely in a car though still likes a boost to get in.  She responds to her name & a few commands; a treat in your hand and she is yours!

She is still learning about how safe she feels around some other dogs.  She is least sure about little dogs or dogs that invade her space - get in her face.  She is not an aggressive dog but may give warnings when she doesn’t feel safe.  Right now we keep some distance from passing dogs on walks to help with that.  With calm dogs who just let her be she has done well.  And she continues to surprise us.  She recently spent a week with a calm little dog and blended right in - walking in tandem & sleeping next to each other.    
 For now Alyssa needs to be placed in a ‘single dog home’ and with parents who will continue to work with her in feeling safe.  Alyssa is looking for a more quiet home with lots of love and someone around more often than not.

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
Photos
Kipling was found at a local shelter. We believe he is a Golden mix. He was very sick when we found him and we were his only chance at a better life. The shelter believed he was about 17 years old, but that may have been due to his poor condition. Now that he is feeling and acting so much better, we think he may be between 11-12 years old. He has a low to moderate energy level, he enjoys short walks and he enjoys rolling in the grass. Kipling is looking for a quiet home. We don't know how he feels about other dogs so we will update this information when we learn more about him.

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.
