My name is FINN...like Huckleberry FINN!  My foster Mom says that that is the most perfect name for me because I love getting out there to explore and I love to put my nose into most things—I love to look for things!  I love adventure!  I am terrier through and through, I tell you!  Because I am a terrier, I will need a secure, fenced in yard and activities such as walking, running or even hiking and games!  I am an active, young, smart fellow and I love life!  I am great with other dogs, but I don’t quite understand how strong I am when I play, so dogs my size or bigger will be the best companions for me! 

I am crate trained and am quiet in my crate at night all the way into the morning hours.  I am such a good boy and my foster Mom assures me that she will find the most perfect person or peoples for meeeeeeeeeee...my pot of gold!



Finn is fostered in Olympia, WA.

Gracie Ann
Female/spayed/shots current
11 years old

I’m Gracie Ann! 

  I am a sweet, quirky, wisp of a white lil’ Maltese girl!  I was surrendered to Furbaby Rescue because my family didn’t know why my personality had changed when they started a family.  Well I am so thankful to Furbaby Rescue because they sent me to the doctor’s office right away to see if I had any underlying medical issues.  Sure enough, I did!  It turns out that my body produces too much of a hormone that is very similar to Testosterone.  I was put on some medication for a couple of months to address this issue.  From what the doctor can tell, the treatment worked and voila, here I am, ready to find my forever home! 

Just some random facts about me:

  My favorite color:  Pink

My favorite food:  Anything grain free and meaty

My favorite place:  My BAT CAVE (the nest that I made under my foster Mom’s bed)

My favorite thing to do:  Protecting my BAT CAVE against the resident Cocker Spaniel—he is not the sharpest tool in the shed, if you know what I mean!

My other favorite place:  The couch

I am great for the groomer and just want a home to call my very own—I can make a new Bat Cave—I’m smart like that! 

I live with a bunch of smaller dogs and I am friends with them all...except for the Cocker Spaniel because he is far too nosey for my liking!  A galoof...a real GA-LOOF I tell you!

I can’t wait to meet my new Mommy or Daddy!

Mrs. Merkle
App. 13 years old
4 lbs

Meet Mrs. Merkle.  This sweet, loving snuggle bug is looking for a  home to retire.  At just 13 years young... she has been through quite a lot and knows what she wants from her forever family.  Mrs. Merkle is great with other dogs of all sizes, LOVES people, gets along well with cats, its 100% potty trained to a wee pad or happy to go outside when asked.  You would think not having any teeth prevents her from enjoying hard snacks,  but a crunchy treat is  a favorite of hers.  Her veterinary exam and blood work showed her to be in good health,  with a low thyroid that she takes a twice daily supplement for (about $7.00/month)

She is a quiet dog,  but will certainly bark for another cookie or five!


A BIG FAN OF:  making new friends.  This lady is a life of the party and happy to meet anyone.  Blankies!  She loves to snuggle under the covers.

SPECIAL FEATURES:  no teeth!  no need to spend pesky time brushing teeth,  but she still loves to chew on a crunchy treat now and then. She walks well on leash and enjoys outings.  100% potty trained to a week pad.  Travels great in the car!

DREAM HOME:   A home where she can be queen.  She deserves it. 
Fostered in Bellingham, WA

Lucky is our newest little doggie in the menagerie and we are calling him our little husky dog. He is wooly, sweet, cuddly, and bundled up in his warm puffy jacket. It snowed last night!

There is sad stuff, challenging stuff, and good, and best so let’s start with the -


He gets along great with other dogs, is submissive, and ignores the other dogs trying to mount him. He walks well on a leash, loves to go on errands so is great in the car and in stores and other places. He is happy and easy going. He is a lap dog and just wants to be with his person. He’s just an easy dog and anything makes him happy. He is in great health. Even the radiologist can’t find anything amiss with him.


Must be in a securely fenced yard as he will run. You look at that adorable face and want to trust him but you can’t...he’s like a terrier in that regard…he must be on a leash or in a fenced yard. To be fair, he was let out of an apartment as his human couldn’t walk him any longer, but still, he must be kept secured. Really, all dogs should have that amount of care given to them.

He is doing well with potty training if he is on a schedule and someone can be with him. In the beginning he had a house with a dog door and a lovely spacious yard but over the years he’s moved from that house, to a mobile home, to an apartment.


He was rescued by two women when they witnessed him being tossed out of a fast moving vehicle on Snoqualmie Pass…can you imagine? Bless those women for taking him in and they weren’t necessarily “dog people” nor looking for one. He was a matted mess, just a puppy, full of fleas, worms, and feces. Surprisingly nothing was broken. His recent owner fed him cat food not dog food and didn’t mind his waistline so some exercise and healthy dog food will do wonders for him. His owner must move into an assisted living facility as she can no longer care for herself.


He is adorable and will be your best friend everywhere you go. People are attracted to him not only because he is so cute but there is just this wonderful presence about him. He gets his teeth cleaned on February 6, and will be available for meet and greets then. He is quiet and not a barky or yappy Pom whatsoever If Redmond gets any snow at all foster mom will try to get a photo of him !

Lucy Female/spayed Chi Mix 6 years old 7 pounds

Shombo Male/neutered Chi Mix 6 years old 15 pounds


Talk about having a best friend, Lucy is shown here vocalizing HER love of her bestie named Shombo. This pair are an active and energetic duo of dynamic dog. They are friendly and pretty well mannered. Lucy is more comfortable with strangers and new rules. Shombo is a bit more resistant but still a very good boy.

These dogs were living in an environment where they didn’t have access to the outdoors so we are helping them readjust to life “going potty outside”. Lucy loves being in a crate and Shombo hates it because he was living in one prior to coming to Rescue. His foster family is giving them the freedom of sleeping openly in their dog beds in the Family Room.

They have been been fully vetted and come with baseline diagnostics which will come in handy going forward.

If you have been looking for a good pair of companion dogs and have time to give to two sweet little doggies, please do ask us about Lucy and Shombo.

Toby’s past life is quite unknown to us. He and a canine Companion, Tico, were found together in a cage, after their owner passed and the dogs were kicked out of their home. A good Samaritan found them and got them to safety.

Toby was neutered just recently and he is already doing so well with “potty outside” , we are very proud of him. Other than that he is doing brilliantly with a potty pad at his disposal.

Toby is a pretty typical Pomeranian, full of spunk and energy and joy, but with no biting or snapping. He is quiet unless other dogs are barking at something. His barking is useful communication. He’s a pretty fun little fellow.

He has started going into a crate at night with a little duck treat and he sleeps all night until it’s time to get up for first potty outside and then breakfast.

He loves to go for walks and he’s eager to go into a car and quiet on the journey.

We haven’t held him much nor has he asked to BE held so we aren’t sure how cuddly he is but he is so happy to be with people and is pretty jazzed every morning when he is reunited with humans.

Toby needs a fenced in area. He doesn’t need a big yard but he’s been working so hard on his potty outside that he deserves to keep up the good work.

Toby has had a full work up and comes with baseline diagnostics including clean teeth and radiology reports.

Tico’s past life is quite unknown to us. He and a canine Companion, Toby, were found together in a cage, after their owner passed and the dogs were kicked out of their home. A good Samaritan found them and also doesn’t know much about them.

Tico was neutered just recently and he is already doing so well with “potty outside” , we are very proud of him. Other than that he is doing brilliantly with a potty pad at his disposal.

He is a dear little fellow who longs to be held and be with his person. He is happy to jump into his crate at night with a little duck treat and sleeps quietly through the night.

He does become alarmed when the big dogs in the household come into view and are behind a gate and he vocalizes vehemently that there is trouble.

He loves to go for little walks and is a dream in the car.

He is tiny and needs supervision when outside and will need a fenced in area.

Tico comes with a full senior work up including dental and radiology report.

Cooper (14 lbs) & Max (6 lbs)
7 years old
Microchipped/Current on vaccinations


Hello Furbaby Followers!


I am pleased to present Max and Cooper—two darling, bonded Maltese “brothers”!  Although Max and Cooper are not blood brothers, they were purchased during the same year and both have birthdays in 2009!  They are the best of buddies and can’t wait to find their forever home--together!  Cooper is the bigger boy and he is very curious and outgoing.  He loves to explore the yard and play with both his brother and the other resident dogs!  Max, the smaller boy, is a little more shy and reserved than his brother and he loves to snuggle up with his person on the couch or in the bed...he’s such a little love!  Both dogs are loves, but their personalities are quite different which makes this little duo endlessly entertaining! 

Cooper and Max would do best in a home with no other dominant dogs and, please, no cats!  The resident cat is very dog savvy, but not all cats are, and Max and Cooper get very excited whenever they see her! 

Both dogs are great for the groomer when they go in for their beauty treatments and they both had dental work done in 2016...they are healthy boys and have gotten excellent healthcare thus far!

Max and Cooper could hardly be more adorable and they surely can’t wait to meet you!

Cooper and Max are fostered in Olympia, Washington.

Dear darling Darby had a rough start in life but his fortune became much brighter once he made his way into rescue!  He and several other dogs had been living out in a filthy shed and the man in charge of their care was negligent and abusive to them in so many ways.  Along with being dangerously under weight, it was found his blood work was not spot on before we performed his neuter.  Upon these findings we did all of the diagnostics/tests necessary and treated him for an infection until his values returned to normal.  Darby has gained the weight were he should be and is now healthy are ready to go out into his new home.  He is a very shy guy and would benefit from having another dog of similar size in his new life to help him continue to build self confidence.  Taking him to class for socializing and exposure may also be helpful to help him in his new life.  He does prefer his foster mom and bonded very quickly to her and he will need a little more time and patience to help him learn to trust men again.  That will come with positive experiences we would hope.  It was not his fault what happened to him.

 Everyone that has met Darby comments on how super sweet he is considering his past background.  He's just still a bit unsure of himself.  Currently he is learning to walk on a leash so a fenced yard would be best for him at this time.  His beautiful spirit becomes quite evident as he zooms around the yard at warp speed and his old life for the moment is forgotten. This is his new world!!!  He is truly enjoying his new freedom and fortunate jail break from that horrible prison he was living in.  We are so proud of the progress he has made during his stay in foster care.

Darby is a love and just needs to learn to trust again and learn about the world around him.  He gets along great with dogs similar in size as well.  Once he bonds with his new owner he will be a snuggle bug for life!  Need a lap ornament?  This just might be your little man if you are willing to have a little patience with him while he learns the world is a much better place than where he was!

12 years old


Twinkie is very food motivated...She loves car rides, would probably make a great traveling companion in an RV. She does like to be warm so would be happy going south for the winter. She likes to burrow under the covers and actually has a slumber sack that she sleeps in at night.

Twinkie loves to hang out in the kitchen if you are there....never know when something valuable might fall... She eats dry kibble with some pureed pumpkin in the morning and at night kibble with Honest Kitchen slurry alongside. She likes vegetables and fruit, especially bananas, frozen blueberries and pineapple. She will dance on her hind legs for treats. She recently had a dental and likes to chew bones even tho she does not have a lot of teeth left due to poor dental care when she was younger.

Twinkie likes to go out and explore outside and uses the dog door. She likes walks but goes slowly so she can do a lot of sniffing and marking.

Twinkie has lived with many dogs since I have had her and gets along well with all as long as they don't try to take her food. She has learned that at dinner time she must let the other two dogs get their dinner before her. Otherwise she will eat hers then theirs as she is a speedy eater.

When I got my cat she was the first allowed to meet the new arrival. She must have lived with cats before as she was "interested" tho' not confrontational. They did actually play a little when I  was acclimating the cat to her new home. Now they ignore each other.

Twinkie still is quite active as long as you don't expect her to keep up with a fast mover. She moves at her own speed. She is a low maintenance companion. I think she would love a home where she did not have to share her human with another dog. She might like a cat tho.

 Here in this House....
I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks of the other dogs 'out
I can sleep soundly, assured that when I wake my world will not have changed.

I will never know hunger, or the fear of not knowing if I'll eat.

I will not shiver in the cold, or grow weary from the heat.

I will feel the sun's heat, and the rain's coolness,

and be allowed to smell all that can reach my nose.

My fur will shine, and never be dirty or matted.

Here in this house...

There will be an effort to communicate with me on my level.

I will be talked to and, even if I don't understand,

I can enjoy the warmth of the words.

I will be given a name so that I may know who I am among many.

My name will be used in joy, and I will love the sound of it!

Here in this house...

I will never be a substitute for anything I am not.

I will never be used to improve peoples' images of themselves.

I will be loved because I am who I am, not someone's idea of who I should

I will never suffer for someone's anger, impatience, or stupidity.

I will be taught all the things I need to know to be loved by all.

If I do not learn my lessons well, they will look to my teacher for blame.

Here in this house...

I can trust arms that hold, hands that touch...

knowing that, no matter what they do, they do it for the good of me;

If I am ill, I will be doctored.

If scared, I will be calmed.

If sad, I will be cheered.

No matter what I look like, I will be considered beautiful and thought to be
of value.

I will never be cast out because I am too old, too ill, too unruly, or not
cute enough.

My life is a responsibility, and not an afterthought.

I will learn that humans can almost, sometimes, be as kind and as fair as

Here in this house...

I will belong.*

* I will be home. *
