Available Dogs

Heather’s Foster Dogs pulls homeless pets from animal shelters in order to ease shelter overcrowding and give these pets a chance to heal and grow in one of our foster homes. Heather’s Foster Dogs makes sure that before made available for adoption, each foster has been checked by HFD’s veterinarian, given age appropriate vaccinations (including rabies, distemper combo & canine influenza) & preventative (heartworm, flea). Each dog is evaluated in its foster home for a minimum of two weeks before declared available for adoption. Our goal is to show every pet we take in the TLC he or she deserves!

If you are keen on meeting a particular dog & have not submitted your adoption application, please be aware that other adopters who have may also be lined up to meet the same dog. It may be helpful for you to complete & submit your application online. To go the instructions for & a link to the online application, you may click on the link at the bottom of this page.

Clemnetine_1_4

Clementine – Available            Breed:   Mastiff Mix
Sex: Female                                 Age:  2 – 3 years

Weight:  85 pounds                   Spayed

If you’re a big dog person you have to meet Clementine.  Once you get to know her you cannot help but fall in love.  She acts like a puppy but is probably 2-3 years old.  Clem is house trained and does not need to be crated. She loves to snuggle and play with her toys but she’s also a very confident, smart & strong. She knows sit, down, stay and is getting better on leash and at not jumping on her foster parents when they come home. Once you have her trust you can play with her feet, look in her mouth, pull her tail. Clementine just wants to be loved but needs continued gentle guidance.  Clem has a big bark that sometimes causes people to cross the street.  

It would be best for her new  people to have some breed experience. For her protection, a securely fenced yard is a must, the bigger the better.  She might like a playful, non-dominant brother. Because of her size we’d like to see her placed in a more adult household, no small children. She would need to stop any rough housing and protect her people.

Clementine is up to date on all her vacations, spayed & microchipped. 

Clementine’s adoption fee is $255.

If you’d like to provide Clem the unconditional love she deserves and have the time to commit to her continued development, please go to the banner menu above, move your cursor over How to Adopt & click on Adoption Application.  Feel free to provide detailed information about yourself\family & experience.

Chance – Available        Breed:  Chihuahua Mix
Sex: Male                          Age: 6 – 12 months

Weight:  8 pounds           Neutered

I’m Chance. Nice to meet you. I’m a spunky 6 to 12 month old super featherweight. I love to play. Whether it’s dogs or toys, as long as I can be rough and rumble with it I’m happy. On that note I’m still young and can be mouthy at times. 

I need toys. I do like to chew. Keeping my interest for more than 5 minutes is tough. Mom tells me variety is the spice of life. If you keep my toys interesting I will leave your feet alone. It’s a win win.

House training – I need some work. I might have been pad trained, so it’s something  we can work on together.

Kids – I’ve met some little ones who like to move & jump around too much. They make me nervous. So I’m looking for a place with older kids. No kids would work fine as well.

I like to go for short walks but that’s about all my legs can handle. Car rides are great. I’m a great side seat driver. 

Chance’s adoption fee is $275.

Well if you’re looking for a guy who can use a little structure but has a larger than life personality check Chance out. Just go to the banner menu above, move your cursor over How to Adopt & click on Adoption Application. Submit your completed application & you will be contacted.

cherish

Cherish – Available        Breed:  Chihuahua Mix
Sex: Female                      Age: 3 years

Weight:  9.5 pounds       Spayed

Cherish came to HFD with her 6 puppies. She was such a wonderful mom. Now that her puppies have their forever homes, it’s now her turn.

Cherish is extremely loving and just adores snuggling with her humans all night long. She will most definitely help to keep you warm on cold winter nights.

Cherish has some separation anxiety issues so needs a family with someone home most of the time & who has a canine companion for Cherish. She gets along great with the other small dogs in her foster home. So if you already have a dog that’s her size that’s ok. She does not, however, like larger dogs. 

Cherish even does well with the cat, although she thinks chasing is a fun game.

So far Cherish has liked every adult & the older children she’s met. But small children are not her thing. Cherish & small children would not be a good fit living together as she becomes nervous around them. So if you have kids they need to be older and respectful of her. 

Cherish is house trained with reminders. She is spayed, up to date on shots, monthly preventatives and microchipped.

If you are interested in adopting Cherish, then just go to the banner menu above, move your cursor over How to Adopt & click on Adoption Application. Submit your completed application & you will be contacted.

Buck – Available                       Bearded Collie Mix
Sex: Male                                                Age: 9 Years Weight:  37 pounds                                   Neutered

Did you ever watch the TV show “Married With Children” back in the ’80s? (Or maybe you’re watching it right now on Netflix.) Either way, if you’re a fan, you’ll want to meet Buck here because yep, you guessed it, he looks a lot like Buck Bundy, the family dog on “Married With Children”!

Buck was found stray and brought into a local vet clinic, where he won the staff over with his sweet and friendly demeanor. Buck is extremely friendly and easy going. He’s fostered with dogs and cats and does great with both. Like his namesake, Buck would make a fantastic family dog.  He weighs much less than you’d think – only 37 pounds! His long glamorous hair makes him look much bigger. Speaking of, he’s actually quite easy to groom in that he enjoys getting brushed out, and probably will need visits to the groomer here and there to touch up his coat. 

Buck was recently neutered, is fully vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm negative, on flea / tick / heartworm prevention, and is microchipped and housebroken.

Buck has a special senior adoption fee of $150.

If you are interested in adopting Buck,  he is ready to meet & greet. Just go to the banner menu above, move your cursor over How to Adopt & click on Adoption Application. Submit your completed application & you will be contacted. If you  have any question, email his foster mom directly at amandarescues78@gmail.com.

Gloria – Available                           Lhasa Apso Mix
Sex: Female                                            Age: 3 Years Weight:  9 1/2 pounds                                   Spayed

Gloria is a much longer haired dog than seen in her pictures; her coat was shaved after being found severely matted all over. Gloria needs time to warm up to people; even then, she is choosy. She is naturally more comfortable with dogs near her size. Gloria LOVES car rides, taking in the passing scenery from the shotgun seat. Another of Gloria’s loved activities is going for a walk. She needs a good walk every day. Her house training is imperfect; she often uses a pee pad. Gloria is microchipped & spayed as well as up to date on her vaccinations, including against two strains of canine influenza, & monthly heartworm & flea preventatives. Gloria will need daily home brushing & periodic professional grooming.

You may see more of Gloria on her Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Gloria-of-Heathers-Foster-Dogs-359195027907579/?modal=admin_todo_tour) or search FB on Gloria of Heather’s Foster Dogs.

Gloria’s adoption fee is $275.

Laura – Available               Breed:  Chihuahua Mix
Sex: Female                                      Age: >=10 Years Weight:  12 pounds                                        Spayed

Laura is a special needs lady who needs a special home. Laura needs a relaxed home where she can spend her remaining time without drama in the company of a family experienced caring for a blind dog. And Laura needs a family who can afford her multiple prescriptions for her collapsed trachea, a chronic condition. Laura has responded well to the prescribed treatment regimen of 3 medications which, barring complications, she will be on for life.

As Laura was a stray, her age is unknown. She appears to be a minimum of 10 years old & could be significantly older. Laura was taken off the streets with a massive inguinal hernia, a sizable mammary tumor & a shrunken, hypotrophic eye. Laura underwent surgery for these ailments, was spayed & had significant dental work done. Biopsy showed her mammary tumor was cancerous. Laura’s remaining eye appears to have suffered serious injury, or injuries. She is sightless.

Laura is in a foster home with larger dogs with whom she interacts little. Laura will greet other dogs & quickly return to relaxing.

Laura uses a ramp to go between the house & yard. Laura does not walk, but tumbles. down stairs, so a home with stairs is not for her. When picked up & carried around, Laura quickly loses her bearings.

Laura is up to date on her vaccinations & monthly preventatives.

You may see more of Laura on her Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pg/Laura-of-Heathers-Foster-Dogs-777261022624258/posts/?ref=page_internal) or search on Laura of Heather’s Foster Dogs.

Laura’s adoption fee is $150.
