Arnie
Photos
Arnie is a 7-1/2 month old Golden mix who came in to rescue with his mom and sister.  He is very sweet, loves everyone and enjoys having another dog as a playmate and to hang out with.  He loves his walks and is doing very well in his foster home but now he needs to find his forever home.  He is housebroken, good in the home but remember he is a puppy.   His perfect home would be one with another dog to play with and hang out with, someone who will love him and know that a puppy is an open book to train, love, and adore.  He came in to rescue a scared little guy, but he has blossomed in to a handsome, happy boy.  He occasionally gets to see his mother and his sister and oh, boy, do they have a blast playing.

Chloe

Hello from beautiful Golden mix Chloe!  This darling 3-year old girl came to us from a shelter where she had been turned in as a stray and sat waiting for us until we got the all clear that we could run out to bring her into rescue. Well she’s now just arrived, has had a beauty day at the spa, and is waiting to be spayed once she’s had a thorough exam by one of our rescue vets. Chloe is a very low key little girl so far. She is very easy on leash, has great mobility, and so far hasn’t shown any anxiety around other dogs on her walks. She does however have a high prey drive when lizards or birds cross her path! Once she is spayed, we will introduce her to some friendly dogs to learn more about her temperament. She seems to have a moderate energy and has been very sweet to everyone she’s met since coming in to rescue. When Chloe heals from her spay she will be looking for a home where she can hang out until her forever family surfaces. Because of her youth Chloe will be looking for a home where someone is home most of the time.  If you have interest in fostering or adopting this little 43 lb girl who seems to adore human affection, please submit our online Adoption Application and a home visit volunteer will contact you shortly. Please stay tuned for updates!

Dutchess

Hello from Dutchess, a beautiful 5-year old girl who came in to rescue recently. She’s good with other dogs, has good leash manners and loves to go for walks. Dutchess is thriving in her foster home where she enjoys relaxing with the other dog in the house. She loves playing with her tennis ball but also just enjoys hanging out inside with her foster family. She hasn’t been tested with cats or small children so her ideal home would be one with another mellow dog. This sweet girl is ready to go to her forever home and is just waiting for her perfect match to come along.

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.

Laura Ann - ADOPTION PENDING
Photos
Laura Ann is a beautiful, sweet and gentle girl who was surrendered to us by her owner.  Although, well loved, her care came to be too much financial responsibility.  As we all know, basic food, grooming and preventive care for dogs is not inexpensive.  

Laura Ann is a a sweet, snuggly shadow dog. Her big, fluffy paws will come thumping towards the door the second she hears you and will greet you with an enthusiastic tail wag and a plushy toy in her mouth. She is a true lady and exhibits excellent manners both in the house and riding in a car and she can entertain herself and behave calmly when left alone.  She's also a sucker for a chest rub and quickly lays down to submit herself and her shiny golden coat and doe eyes to pets. This dog shows nothing but unconditional love to humans. She, sadly, can't say the same for all canine friends given some baggage from her past. Other dogs stress her out and she exhibits some fearful behavior while looking for constant reassurance from her person.  She would be best as the only doggie in your life and will need training to help soothe her anxiety about other dogs on walks. Her previous owner told us that she may be scared of cats of first but then reacts kindly towards them, especially towards kittens.  We also have been told that she is sensitive to fireworks and thunder.  She is a total sweetheart and is looking for a family that will give her the stability she deserves.  She is about 4 years old and is 70 pounds of pure doggie love.  ​

Lucia - ADOPTION PENDING

Meet Lucia…a very sweet little purebred Golden girl who recently came to us from a shelter.  Lucia is estimated to be about 5 years of age, weighs 63 lbs, is very sweet and affectionate with people, loves to go for walks and she has great leash manners. She’s had some training with obedience and enjoys showing her smarts! When she first came in to rescue she showed signs of neglect and we have been working on getting her healthier so she will be more comfortable. She’s now very close to being ready to ‘go home!’ In the next few days we will address some dental issues and an old untreated ‘cherry eye’ issue.  Lucia is not obese, but can afford to lose a few pounds.  Fortunately, she loves to get out to exercise and roll in the grass. Lucia gets a little excited around strange dogs at first, but we’ve now introduced her to a few calmer ones and it appears she is simply wanting to play... and play like a young pup! She visits the resident kitties in the vet hospital and doesn’t seem to mind them at all. Once Lucia is done with her makeover, she will have a bubble bath and enjoy some long needed grooming. She will be looking for a foster or forever family, so if you feel Lucia could be a good fit for your living situation and you are looking for an affectionate Golden girl, please fill out an  Adoption Application.

Lucilla - ADOPTION PENDING
Photos
Meet Lucilla, a beautiful 8-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 scare easily so she needs to find a home with someone who is home more than not during the day. She needs an owner who is patient and loving and is willing to work with her should any anxiety issues 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

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 has perfect/exceptional house manners.  He loves his foster family and will cuddle as long as you like.  His foster mom has discovered a fun trick where he will sit on his hind end with front paws up like giving a “high five”. He does love to go outside where he is on the mission to rid the yard of squirrels and birds (very Duck Toller of him).  He has also demonstrated some pointing while outside.  Scrappy likes to run the fence in a playful manner with both neighbors who have small dogs.  No barking though.  He has been very quiet but also very smart.  When he wants to go running with his foster mom, he brings her sneaker to her and drops it in front of her.  He has great stamina and has run 1-1/2 to 2 miles with his foster mom.  Also, perfect running along side her, no zigzag or in front.  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 with humans that will love giving snuggles while getting them back in return.

Stanley Sweetness
Photos
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.
