Wire Haired Jack Russell Terrier mix

Rosie is such a sweet and dear little angel.  She’s snuggly, loves to play, rides well in a car, she can be independent, but loves people and other dogs.  Right now she is living with four other dogs (soon to be joined by a new foster dog, though) and gets along well with everyone.  She is living in one of the best foster homes any dog would hope to find.

Rosie is a terrific companion and a great little walker and just so much fun.  She can be crated when you are away.  She is still quite young and puppy like and stays out of mischief in a crate.

She had been living with a sibling and we felt that they would do better separated particularly regarding potty training.  They kind of feed off one another.

She is healthy and has the Veterinarian report, chart notes, and blood work to prove it!
Rosie HAS to be allowed to flop down on the sofa.  That’s a deal breaker for her but she does not need to sleep in your bed.  She needs a home where youthful exuberance is appreciated.  That’s one of the reasons you choose a young dog, after all.  Oddly, though, she is not barky which we would expect in this breed.

She would like a bath once in a while but is not a groom dog so other than trimming toes and a nice bath, she won’t require monthly grooming appointments. 

Her foster parents are working on her potty training and she is making progress but she’s not quite “there” yet.


Rosie is fostered in Kirkland WA.



Dewey and Cookie
Dewey (doxie/chi/male/8 years old/15 lbs)
Cookie (Italian Greyhound/female/10 years old/16 lbs)

The Lady and the Scamp are delightful new foster dogs for us.

We call them by those names because of their intriguing and adorable personalities.

The “Lady” is a beautiful, dainty, graceful, and elegant girl.

The “Scamp” is a charming and playful little fellow who scampers around and enjoys life

What a fun pair of dogs.  They are best friends and watch out for one another.

They are good with other dogs, with all people, they don’t mind a ride in the car, and  they have been caught napping next to Edward who is a Blue Brit (cat).  They grew up with a Munchkin cat named Rider.  Once their human was moved to a care facility it was just the three of them fending for themselves.

They seem to have good potty habits.  They haven’t had accidents in the foster home and do their business outside.  Dewey (the Scamp) likes a great big orange traffic cone.

These dogs  love having a big back yard to play in and would rather be outside than in, though are fine once inside, and only need one big comfy dog bed to share.  Even on their first scary night in foster care, they slept quietly through the night.

We agree that they are an odd pairing but they will delight and charm you and make a wonderful addition to your family.

Lady and the Scamp are fostered in Kirkland WA

Shark Week!


Meet Lily and Domo!  Lily (Tibetan Spaniel Mix) and Domo (Japanese Chin) went to a party last week and Lily was dubbed “Shark Week” because of her very large, tooth filled smile!  She was the absolute life of the party!  Not only did she have THE best smile out of the group, but she also “crushed it” with her ridiculously awesome personality-she’s funny and social!  Lily’s trusted sidekick is Domo, the gorgeous Japanese Chin—for those who don’t already know, Japanese Chins are some of the sweetest dogs that you will ever meet!  My veterinarian told me that he has never met a Japanese Chin who wasn’t super sweet!  Foster Mom here is on her second Japanese Chin because they are truly such a wonderful breed and tend to get along with just about everyone!  So, that being said, Lily (sweet) and Domo (sweet) make an awesome pair of dogs!  What a wonderful duo!  They play with each other, clean each others’ ears and really look after one another.  Lily and Domo are a bonded pair and will, thus, only be adopted out as a pair!  What a spectacular and unique pair they are!   Lily and Domo are sweet, sensitive dogs and are looking for a more quiet, adult home.  They love their time in the yard and Lily loves to sun herself...all she needs now is an eenie weenie polka dot bikini!  Wouldn’t that be the cutest?   If you are interested in meeting Lily and Domo, please fill out a Furbaby Rescue application!  They would love, love, LOVE to meet you!

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!

Female/spayed/shots current
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. *
