Zane – Available        Breed: Pekingese Mix
Sex: Male                                Age: 5 1/2 Years
Weight: 20 pounds                          Neutered  

I’m a laid back guy looking for a quiet home to call my own, so please no kids as they make me nervous.  Older quiet kids are OK as I love to just sit next to you on the couch while you watch tv or play video games. I just want to be with you.

When its bed time I will lay next to you to keep you safe while you sleep.

I get along great with other dogs my size or smaller.  Larger dogs well, not so much.

I am house trained. I love laying out in the yard from time to time on nice days so a fenced yard is a plus for me. I also enjoy car rides and leisurely walks. 

I am neutered, up to date on my vaccinations & microchipped.

My adoption fee is $275.

Sex: Male                                  Age:  5 Months
Weight: 32 pounds                          Neutered  

Kind of a big doofus, Eddie is going to be a big guy when he’s all grown up. He loves to romp around the yard playing with his toys, take walks and then sack out on the couch with you. Eddie is a typical puppy working on his manners and housetraining. He keeps his crate clean and is doing pretty well with his housetraining. Eddie likes his big dog foster siblings and has liked all people he has met so far.

Eddie is looking for an active family who has time to spend with him. Eddie needs a fenced yard and a home check will be part of his adoption process. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on age appropriate vaccinations.

Eddie’s adoption fee is $295.

Ralphie – Available               Breed: Lab Mix
Sex: Male                                    Age:  10 Years
Weight: 62 pounds                            Neutered

Looking for the complete package of dog-friendly, cat-friendly, and kid-friendly? Look no further than Ralphie, your classic all-American senior black lab who would love to celebrate Fourth of July in his new home.

Ralphie was found as a stray and picked up by animal control. The vet estimated him to be around 10 years of age but he is definitely not ready for the retirement home just yet. He has the energy and playfulness of a dog half his age, with the maturity and good manners that comes with an older dog. He absolutely hands down loves playing fetch the most, and can chase down balls faster than Javier Baez! Yet, he is sweet and gentle with everybody he meets, both 2 legged and 4 legged. He was kid-tested at a baseball game and just loved the 3-6 year old group he met. While he would make a wonderful family dog, he also is good with just about every other home setting – be it a single person, couple, etc.

Through lab work, the vet discovered that Ralphie is in the beginning stages of renal disease, so he was started on a prescription diet. This has stabilized him and he is doing great. His future home is encouraged to keep him on a healthy/prescription diet in order to keep him in top shape. He comes to you fully vetted – neutered, microchipped, vaccinationated, dewormed and heartworm negative. He is not destructive, housebroken, and incredibly well socialized. This is the dog you can take with you to the kids’ baseball games with no drama. Having company over? He’ll love it. 

Ralphie’s adoption fee is $150. Thanks to a grant from the Petco Foundation, Ralphie is a participant in the Petco Foundation – Heather’s Foster Dogs Senior Dog Program & his adoption fee is subsidized.

Mr. Wilson — Available    MW 1.jpg

Breed: Lhasa-Pekingese Mix

Sex: Male                                   Age: 5 Years

Weight: 17 Pounds                         Neutered

Poor Mr Wilson has had a really tough time.  When he came to the rescue he had a bad case of kennel cough, it took a couple rounds of antibiotics to get him well.   About a week after he was available for adoption he had a seizure, so back to the doctor.  It was discovered he has hypothyroidism (which is easy to treat) and he also has idiopathic epilepsy.   He was in rescue for three months before his foster parents saw him have a seizure.  The veterinarian says unless the seizures became more frequent or severe he would not need meds.  He’s such a great little guy it’s sad that his condition might scare potential adopters off. 

So if you’re still reading let me give you a little more information.  Mr. Wilson is around 5 years young, weighs 17 pounds (with all his fur he looks a lot larger & yes he sheds).  Everyone has an opinion what mix he might be, maybe Lhasa Apso, Pekingese, Shih Tzu or any combination thereof.   He is house trained, really very relaxed, loves to go for a walk otherwise he’s content to just be near you.  He does bark excitedly when you come home or get the leash for a walk or ride in the car, but he’s not a yappy dog.  He can get along with other dogs but would probably prefer they be of the same temperament. His favorite treat is swiss cheese.  When he comes in from doing his business outside he will sit down and look at you like “OK, where’s my treat?”.  He doesn’t do biscuits! . Very quirky fellow, just part of his charm. You can leave dry food in his dish, he’ll eat when he’s hungry.  He’ll chew a bully stick but most chew treats he hides.  A fenced yard will be necessary, he usually needs to go out at night.  If you work part time or from home that would be great.  If Mr Wilson had his choice, he’d probably love a retired gentleman to share a bachelor pad.

If you think you could be that special person who would provide Mr. Wilson with a loving home or more questions, please fill out an application and we’ll be happy to contact you. Guarantee you won’t regret your decision. Mr. Wilson is up to date on all his vaccinations, neutered, micro chipped and waiting for you.

Mr. Wilson’s adoption fee is $275.

Sex: Male                                      Age:  6 Years
Weight: 8 pounds                             Neutered

Mugsy is shy but very loving.  His favorite thing is to snuggle with his human on the couch and burrow under covers. He walks nicely on a leash and is potty trained with frequent reminders.  He doesn’t like rain or chilly weather and likes his human to go out with him. No small children due to size.

Mugsy’s adoption fee is $275.

Xena — Available    

Breed: Shepherd Mix

Sex: Female                            Age: 2 Years

Weight: 45 Pounds                         Spayed

Hi I’m Xena. I don’t live with kids, but I’ve been around them & I’m fine. I live with dogs, but need to be fed separately. Food was scarce before I was rescued, so I don’t like other dogs by my food. For this reason my foster mom has not had bones, rawhide or antlers by me with the other dogs. I like to play ball with you or by myself. I am working on my house training. I love people, lying in the grass, my ball & car rides. I’m a pretty easy going girl who loves a game of chase through the yard with a dog or person. I’m happy with either. If you’re looking for a wonderful new family member, look no further – here I am. I’m spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines & heartworm preventative & flea prevention.

Xena’s adoption fee is $255.
