Cody still finds the world scary at times and needs help to get past her fear. She is learning to trust that hands mean gentle pets and yummy treats and has recently accepted kisses on her head. Cody loves other dogs and has even tried to initiate play with the resident dog. She has been working hard at being brave and has been trying to integrate herself into the family and has learned that sleeping with the family at night is so much better than sleeping alone. She is house trained and crate trained. Cody is looking for a quiet home in a quiet neighborhood. She is more confident when other dogs are around so she will need a home with another dog or two or three. With patience and love this pretty girl is going to learn to trust and will settle into a life full of unconditional love. This princess deserves her fairy tale ending!

Update from Asher's foster family - Jun 18, 2018: Asher is very sweet and quiet. He hasn't barked yet, but he will whine when left alone in the crate. He has migrated to sleeping in the bedroom with my dog instead of the crate. He loves to snuggle, loves kids and especially loves belly rubs. Asher is very timid. He doesn't like loud noises, vacuum cleaners, running vehicles, or walking far from home. Piano playing and kids yelling don't phase him, though. He is doing 5 minute walks but doesn't like to go away from the yard. Walking on leash is new. 

Update from Asher's foster family - May 28, 2018: Asher is such a sweetie. He loves to nuzzle up to his humans and rest his head on you. For now, he is on crate rest while he recovers. Every time a human goes near the crate he wags his tail. Asher is able to walk outside for a few minutes at a time. He does well and he is eager to do more. His visible wounds have healed. He is house trained and will let you know if he has to go out. Otherwise he is quiet in his crate. He enjoys some peanut butter in a bone. Long car rides do not suit Asher's stomach.

Her foster has been working with her on leash, though, and Blair is a lot better. She is comfortable on the leash now and walks on it. But, she wants to play while she's on leash. So continuing her leash training will be good for her. Blair is great with dogs and cats. (She was previously fostered with both dogs and cats.)



Foxy (#180328) and Rocky #2 (#180325)

Rocky and Foxy are an adorable pair of affectionate pups who love belly rubs and ear massages and will gladly reciprocate with kisses. They are looking for their forever home since their previous owner passed away. Rocky is the handsome guy with a frosted face and Foxy is the pretty peanut butter and vanilla swirl. Foxy is the more dominant of the two and Rocky is happy to follow her lead. They are excellent in the car and like their dog beds. Both are a little nervous about thunderstorms and loud noises so might do best in a quiet home where they can learn to enjoy the simple pleasures like napping in a dog bed and sunbathing in the yard.

They are good with other dogs, no cat history, but they didn't mind the ones they met at the vet's, so they may be good with cats. They are approved for kids 8 and up.

Rocky is an 8-year-old neutered black male Lab. Foxy is an 11-year-old spayed female Jack Russel Terrier. Foxy is on glucosamine supplements for age-related arthritis.

Update from foster mom - They were excellent in the car -- so much so that the seat towel was undisturbed 45 minutes later when we arrived home. Whenever Foxy looks at Foster Mom, she does the prettiest smile. Rocky is more camera shy. After stopping at the empty dog park to sniff and take care of business, Foxy quickly settled on a dog bed at home while it took Rocky a few minutes of pacing and looking out the window before he settled behind FM's desk chair. If you pet one, the other is always nearby to get his/her share of attention, but neither is pushy about it. They are now relaxing side by side on a dog bed.

Quigley (#180287) 

Quigley is a 2 year old neutered black male who weighs 54 lbs.  He is current with his shots and is heart worm negative.  Quigley is good with dogs; unknown with cats; and approved for kids 10 and up.  Placement is currently limited to single family homes in a suburban neighborhood or rural setting.

 

Quigley is a handsome guy who will greet you with a wagging tail and a happy smile that reveals his long spotted tongue.  He understands the basics of doggy meet n greets and has done a great job meeting new canine companions. Quigley gladly soaks up attention from his humans and loves to be petted.

Quigley was returned after his adopter conceded he was way too interested in the elderly resident cats. He listens pretty well unless he focuses on cats and small outdoor critters. Quigley had free rein of the house, but access to his open crate. He is not destructive, not even with his chews, which he chews slowly, as if to savor them. Quigley is good on a leash and would walk 2- 4 miles a couple times each day. Quigley never showed any interest in the pool.

Emma (#170313) 

Emma is a 2 1/2 yr old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 50 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Emma is approved for ages 12 and up.  Emma is a very nice dog and with some more training she will be a great one. She will have a training addendum. Will chase a ball and bring it back once in a while. She is a very sweet dog and will make some lucky family a super companion. She is house trained and will go stand by the door to go out. She was allowed on furniture and slept on the couch. She needs to be watched when alone as she still likes to chew on some things mostly paper inside and branches and pieces of wood outside. She is pretty good at un-stuffing stuffed animals. She would love a home with a yard so she can run and stretch her legs while she plays. She needs either a physical or underground fence.

Aug 16, 2017: Emma will need to continue with her training and being a young lab, will need lots of interactive exercise to tire out her mind and body. She does know her basic commands and is house- and crate-trained. She does still find things to chew when bored, so she will need to be watched. She desperately wants to play with other dogs, so she might be a candidate for a couple days of doggie day care each week. We did find out that Lucy does like the water and spent time sitting on the steps of the pool; she wasn't much of a retriever, but she wasn't afforded much, if any, interactive exercise.

Dec 28, 2017: Emma is a bouncy and energetic girl looking for fun. She loves to run around in the yard. She comes running at you but has learned to sit and wait for a treat. She also sits and waits for her food. Her focus is improving but sometimes she can be kind of skittish and loses focus easily. She gives high five and touch. Her recall is coming along. She did not recall at all when she came. She is a smart girl and gets genuinely pleased with herself when she earns a treat.

Emma needs an adopter who will continue to work with her on her cues, someone who will include her in outside activity. She has lots of energy and needs to burn that to be settled. She loves to play fetch with balls or sticks. She does well meeting other dogs. Emma is a beautiful girl who loves affection and will at times demand it if she feels she is not getting enough. Her play is a bit rough which is probably something she has been allowed or encouraged to do and is now in the process of learning appropriate play. She is definitely moving in the right direction. Because of her energy level, she will do best in a family with older children, so she's approved for kids 12 and up.

Berkie is an 8 yr old yellow spayed female.  She weighs 70 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  Berkie is a sweet white-faced girl who loves to hang out with her peeps. She will make a great companion for some lucky family. It only took her a day to discover the joy of snuggling on the sofa with foster mom and dad. Turns out she loves to watch tv. Berkie sleeps quietly through the night: she happily slept until 10am one morning when foster mom was especially tired. She doesn't like going into her crate, but once there she's fine. Berkie enjoys the company of her foster siblings, and she's tried enticing them to play inside without success. She is a strong girl who pulls on a leash, so an Easy Walk harness is needed. Berkie is fearful of stairs, but she seems to be getting used to them: when faced with a flight she first whines, then climbs them with ease. Berkie is looking for that special family who will give her all the love and attention she deserves.

Berkie is good with dogs and approved for ages 10 and up.  No cats for Berkie.

Update from Grandma's foster family - June 11, 2018: Grandma is such a sweetheart and adores people! Grandma is starting to follow her foster parents around the house. At first, she didn’t like going up or down stairs. But now she will confidently go up and down to follow her foster parents. This week, she was uncrated for 7 hours while foster parents were at work and did great! She isn’t motivated by treats but will perk up at mealtimes. She also likes to be near her foster parents when they are eating. 

May 30, 2018: Grandma is a 8 year old total sweetheart and turning out to be a wonderful house guest! She has no major issues. In her first week in her foster home, it was a bit of adjustment but now she has settled in nicely and gets along great with the resident dogs. She is house and crate trained. Yesterday, her foster parents left Grandma uncrated for a hour and half while they ran errands and when they came back, there was no mess! In the house, she loves to sleep! She loves her favorite spot which is the landing at the bottom of the steps but has started enjoying going in the crate when the door is open and sleeping in there. Grandma loves going outside and taking walks. She does great on a leash as long as she doesn’t catch the smell of a rabbit. When her foster parents are putting on leashes on the resident dogs, she will happily join them at the door. She has gone to the local dog park 3 times and gets along great with other dogs. She tends to mind her business and does her own thing. She likes to socialize with humans. She likes sniffing around the edge of fences hoping to get a sniff of a squirrel.

Molly #3 (#180278)

She loves to be petted and just can’t get enough of it. She is not comfortable doing stairs so a home with limited steps would be best for her. She rides well in the car and is happy to hang in her crate, even though she doesn’t need to be crated.

Molly needs to go to a family with another confident dog and in a quiet suburban or rural area. She also needs a physical fence.

Tina/Penny was returned because while she is fine meeting and playing with other dogs outside of the home, she was very possessive of her special dog stuff around her canine sibling. Human family members could remove food, treats and toys, but not her furry sister. 

Tina/Penny has completed her basic training and has good house manners, but it would be ideal if her new family continued with training and she may also enjoy agility. She is housebroken and walks well on a leash; she enjoys going to the dog park and returns when called.
