Lucy is a little spitfire who needs an active home.  She is still a puppy in many ways except that she is house trained. 

When you see her in person you will laugh yourself silly because she is just such a character!  She is funny, charming, really sweet and loving and loyal.  She is looking for friends and family.

In her foster home she gets along really well with all of the dogs.  She and one of the dogs are really good friends who mutually benefit from her energy level and love of playing.  However, they do squabble once in a while so her foster parents actually think she might be best as an only dog or sometimes just the right match.

Everyone who meets her falls in love.


Lucy is fostered in Kirkland WA, for application email Furbaby Rescue.

Please note: Sadly much to Cindy's disappointment, (and ours!) she was adopted out into a new super wonderful home about a month ago and was doing wonderful in her new home. It turns out her new owner was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer so she was returned to us. We are all so sorry to hear this news and send all of our prayers to the new (former) owner and her family! She was a perfect match until this happened! Cindy is a lovely little girl still looking for her new home.

What are the odds that any one dog, especially a dog as super terrific as I am, would need to be saying doggy prayers for her fourth home in seven years? Well, that’s the case through no fault of my own. My first family adored me but due to illness they had to surrender me to Furbaby Rescue. The rescue found me an awesome new home with the nicest and most fun lady but now that special lady has a serious form of Alzheimer’s very early in her life so she’s had to give me back to the rescue. And now, my next Mom has cancer, so here I am again. The bright spot in this story of sadness is that Furbaby Rescue always finds the best homes ever AND I am a true believer in the saying that “the third time’s the charm” and I’m referencing finding my third home. I believe that so thoroughly that I’d be willing to have my name changed to Charmer if you adopted me. Get it? Third time’s the charm and I am a sweetheart of a dog. Why are you groaning? :-) 

I know that no one wants to adopt a total stranger so here’s a bit about me. I love to go for walks, playing with toys and I could tolerate a nice doggy playmate. I’m not real crazy about cats for playmates so I guess I’d have to request a home with no cats. I love belly rubs and being scratched under the chin. Ahhhhh - I love just thinking about that. I’m good about not getting on the furniture unless invited. I adore laying on the floor by my foster mom’s feet and I’d like to try being your new little shadow. I am very well housebroken once my new human shows me where the door is that they want me to use. I’ll sleep in a kennel or a doggy bed in the same room. I don’t think I’d object to being on your bed if you’d like. It might make me feel more like this will be my last home. Oh yes, I’ll never be one of those expensive and fancy alarm systems you see advertised on TV but I can alert you with a bark when anyone arrives at the door and then I engage the off button. 

So would you consider meeting me? Remember, I’ll have all my vet care up to date before being adopted so you’ll know I have a good bill of health and many years ahead for us to charm one another.

Magnificent Murphy


Yes, yes, yes...my name is Murphy with an M and my foster Mum says that M also stands for Magnificent!  My foster Mom says that I am an awesome dog just-a-waitin’ for an awesome family to call my very own!


I’m a bit of a busy boy and love to do things all day long!  I am just 1 year old and I need lots of toys and delicious things to chew on to keep me engaged and occupied throughout each and every day.  My foster Mom says that I am bright eyed and bushy tailed as soon as I wake up and that I stay that way until the time that I go to bed at night! 


My ideal home might have another playful, younger dog (probably my size or bigger) for me to play with OR maybe I could go to doggie daycare a couple of days a week so that I can make friends and race around like a complete nut!  I am an awesome companion and am very good natured in general!  I would really like it if my people were home a lot during the day and if they would take me all over the place with them!  Yes, this would be my perfect world, my perfect world, I tell you!


Please submit your application today!  I can’t wait to meet you!

Lily: “Oh, Domo, what am I ever going to do? People keeping wanting to adopt you because you’re royalty, a Japanese Chin, and you look regal. Me, I look like a dumpy, grumpy unadoptable reject.”  sniff, sniff, sniff. 

Domo: “Just stop it right now, Lily darling. You are gorgeous in personality and spirit and that’s where it counts.  If anyone was blind and based their opinion only on how funny and sociable you are, you’d be adopted in two seconds because they recognized the great qualities that have nothing to do with appearance. And I think you’re adorably cute and that’s all that matters. Most of all, you just cling to the fact that we are a bonded pair. Where I go, you must go. Where you go, I must go.” 

Lily: “Oh, Domo, you always know how to make me feel loved and beautiful and wanted. No wonder I adore you.” 

Domo: “Yes, Lily, you just remember our doggy vows. ’Til death us do part, in sickness and in health but we don’t have those issues yet. And if anyone thinks we’re too old, we’re just going to show them that we have a long way to go and we can give DOUBLE THE LOVE to someone who loves us. So let’s just wait until that person comes along who says “I can’t live without them both! We go together or not at all.” 

Lily: “Oh, Domo, what would I ever do without you but now I know that my royal partner is going to protect me. I love you, Domo.” 

Domo: “I love you, too, Lily, and there’s enough love between us to share with humans. Be patient. The right one is going to hit that “Fill out the application for Domo and Lily” button any minute now.” 


Do you still want more details? Japanese Chin dogs are noted for being the sweetest breed but Lily is right there with him even though she’s a different breed. They play together and watch after one another and are wanting (and needing) a quiet adult home hopefully with a secure yard because Lily especially loves to lay in the sun. You’ll be hard pressed to find two nicer dogs. If you can only adopt one dog, please look at other single dogs on our site. We will not separate Domo and Lily for their own well being.

Male/neutered/shots current

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!

 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. *

There will be more furbabies needing forever homes.
