(Adopted Aug.29/18)
Female/spayed/shots current
7 years old
13 lbs


Cheyenne is an adorable little ball of fur with a great energy and spirit.  She is loving and loyal and really enjoys life.  She gets along with all of the dogs in her foster home and is thrilled to meet more dogs when she goes to the dog park for big runs.

She has good recall and generally stays right with you on walks.  She is playful, affectionate and super smart. 

She is potty trained.  She is gentle and sleeps in the bed with you at night.  She is a terrific dog who would fit right into a family with mature children (she was given up because the family had a baby) or even better an adult home.

Cheyenne has a sensitive digestive system which is not uncommon for her breed so if you keep her on her current diet, she is happy, healthy, and in great form. 

Cheyenne once lived with two other malti poo so was raised around other dogs and we think thatís why she was so happy even moving into a really full house. 

You can chat more with her foster parents. 

Cheyenne is fostered in Kirkland WA.

(Adopted Aug.25/18)
Chihuahua mix
Female/spayed/shots current
2 years old
12 lbs

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.

 She does get along with playful dogs especially well. And she is learning just to avoid the ones who donít want to engage. Also an older child to play with would probably be a plus.

Everyone who meets her falls in love.


Lucy is fostered in Kirkland WA, for application email Sandra.



Pekingese Mix

  M:  Meet Me Today!
           U:  Undying love forever!
                                                             R:  Rough and tumble and very, very adorable!
                                         P:  Person!  Iím looking for my person!
     H:  Healthy and athletic!
Y:  Yes, Iím your man!


Hello Furbaby Fans!  My name is Murphy and I am looking for my forever home!  Iím a Pekingese Mix and thus, Iím a stocky, athletic, low to the ground type!  I am pretty good at doing a 3 mile walk/jog with my foster Mommy, so if you would like to take me out on some little hikes to the beach or the Sound or the woods...I would love to be your work-out buddy or weekend camping warrior!  Also, since my Momma was a Peke, I have some traits that are particular to this breed.  For instance, I can get to playing too hard with others, so I really need to be watched closely when playing with others who are not as rough and tumble as me.  I LOVE other dogs, I can just get going and get too rough.  My Mommy was a bit like that too, from what I remember!  My foster Mom crates me when she is gone so that no one gets hurt!  But, I love getting some me time with a safe bone to chew on while Iím in there!  My crate is my fort!  I have many vocalizations and love to lead the twice a day ďhowl-inĒ with my foster siblings!  Oh how I love that!  You will love to have a little goober follow you around and listen to me talk and sing!  Did I mention that I am smart too?  I would love to do and try new things! 

My foster Mom thinks that perhaps I should be an only dog, but she also thinks that I would thrive in the right dog savvy home!  Cats are probably a no if they cannot tolerate being run at and jumped on full speed ahead!  Most cats donít like that, but the one here doesnít mind!  Imagine that!

My foster Mommy adores me and says that Iím the biggest blast ever!  Check me out!

If you are interested in meeting me, please fill out our application...I canít wait to meet you!

Male/neutered/shots current
6 years old
9 lbs

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. *
