Rat Terrier mix
10 years old
Hi! I'm Dottie!
I'm 10 y/o, have all my vaccinations, weigh about 11 lbs, spayed, microchipped
and in very good health! My previous owner became too ill to take care of
me so I came into Rescue so they could find a new home for me to love. I
was an "only" dog and it's thought I'm a Chihuahua mix but my foster
mum's vet thinks I'm a Rat Terrier mix. I'm a really nice girl and looking
for a great home and people to love. I'd rather be an "only"
dog, am currently living with three other Terriers and we get along just fine as
long as they remember I may be little but I'M the boss!
I arrived in Rescue with
some warty things that have been removed and as with many small dogs, don't have
a tooth in my head. I'm eating Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream and my
foster mum adds warm water to float the kibble and I have no problems eating
(what respectable dog chews their food anyway eh?). There's a dog door to
the back garden and since I'm house-trained, I zip through that to take care of
business outside when I need to.
I ride well in the car,
snuggle nearby ( but I don't need to be "on you") and love to be
outdoors with my human. If you have cats or small humans, I'm probably not
your best choice. That said, my mum tells me I'm a lovely old girl and a
special person will find me and I'll love them to pieces.

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.
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 Furbaby Rescue.
1 year old
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-waitiní
for an awesome family to call my very own!
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!
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!
submit your application today! I canít wait to meet you!

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.
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.
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!
