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 you 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: 4 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. We can’t say I’m house trained or crate trained as when I get excited I tinkle. It’s only happened when meeting a new dog or person & I have to wait, but it’s something you should be aware of. 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.

He loves to snuggle close, sleep in bed , and go for walks. He is looking for someone who will take the time to earn his trust and love, this may take a few weeks, but you will then have a friend for life.

Friego’s adoption fee is $150.

Brando – Available          Breed: Schnauzer-Terrier Mix
Sex: Male                                  Age:  6 Years
Weight: 13 pounds                       Neutered

I have an interesting backstory — I came into foster care earlier this spring after dashing out into traffic and getting hit by a car. I was brought in as a stray to the vet and no one claimed me. The vet moved ahead with doing surgery on my ACL and patella (knee cap) of my left rear leg to help correct it, and I spent the next 8 weeks recovering in foster care. I’ve been doing great! My foster mom has worked to rebuild my strength and now I’m just a bit wobbly in that left leg but that’s it! I go up and down the deck stairs, run, play, and have a good old time with my canine friends.

The vet also thinks I have somewhat impaired vision – not from the accident but perhaps from birth, because I adjust really well to new situations and don’t let it slow me down. The first few weeks in foster care I bumped into walls here and there, but I quickly figured out where the door is to do outside, how to do small flights of stairs, and where all the toys are!

I’m fostered with cats and I’m not aggressive with them, although sometimes I get excited and yappy with them. I’m great with other dogs although I have a slight Napoleon complex with larger dogs when they are running around playing — again, excited and yappy but not aggressive. I know when to chill, though, and love to curl up in a dog bed. I’m very quiet when I’m not running around playing outside with everybody.

I am recommended for most any home, except my foster mom prefers a home with older kids (10+). Due to my wobbly leg I don’t want to be placed in a position to get stepped/sat on by little ones while I continue to heal. The vet predicts that over the next few months I will have regained full strength. My foster mom made a few videos of my running and playing if you would like to see, just ask!

I am fully vetted (neuter, microchip, vaccinations, deworming, heartworm negative, and on flea/tick medication and heartworm preventative). I am housebroken, friendly, easy to pick up and cuddle with. I will need a visit to the groomer every few months to keep my handsome haircut looking fresh.

Brando has a special reduced adoption fee of $150.
