Bonnie
West Highland Terrier X
Female/spayed/shots current
12 years old
20 lbs

Bonnie is a very smart delightful Terrier mix who just turned 12, is 20 lbs, has been vetted, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, house-trained, uses the dog-door to the back garden, loves attention, and is a very happy girl!  Her Terrier attitude pops to the surface when another dog gets in her face.  She'll tolerate their nonsense temporarily and then lets them know in no uncertain terms that she won't put up with their invasion of  her "self."  Once the message is received, she's happy-go-lucky and friends again.  She loves scratches and pats and wants to sleep on the bed with you.  She alerts to strangers approaching the house and settles quickly when told "quiet!"  

 

She arrived clean and groomed and her coat is growing so she will need grooming in the future.  Her vision and hearing is fine and requires no special meds. 

Bonnie is a lovely dog, she is fostered in Olympia, WA for application please contact Sandra.

 





Cuddles
Bichon Frise
Female/spayed/shots current
7 years old
16 lbs

Do you love Bichons, well my goodness look no further, Cuddles is AMAZING.  She is friendly, happy, loving,  her name depicts who she is.

She follows you everywhere, wants to be close but not on top of you.  She is furniture dog, and loves to sleep with her person.  She loves men and women, she is not gender specific.

She loves other small dogs, but she is a submissive girl, so for her, a sweet small dog for company would be fantastic.  She will play with other dogs, and toys.  She is simply a dollbaby, who has captured her foster parents heart.

She will alert bark, but quiets quickly and easily, not a yapper by any means, barks when appropriate.
She is housetrained, though we went through a couple of transition days, as she got acquainted with her new surroundings, she will also use a dog door.

Ideally she would love to have her person around, and not be left alone for long hours.  
When she first arrived in rescue, she had a horrendous ear infection, and needed dental.  Those have been taken care of, she lost 6 teeth, had blood work, radiographs, and everything updated.  She will need a recheck of her ears in another week.

She is truly a sweet, darling girl.

Murphy
Pekinese/Japanese Chin
11 months old
Male/neutered/shots current
16 lbs

Hi!  My name is Murphy I am a Pekinese/Japanese Chin, my foster Mom told me that I have to write this all by myself so this is my life, by Murphy…

 

I am just 11 months old and guess what?  My birthday is on November 20, just days before Thanksgiving!  I would be very, very grateful AND thankful if I could find my new pet parents before Thanksgiving!  Why you ask?  Because I love the smell of turkey cooking and I am a very good boy!  I do have a pretty short attention span because I am very young and my foster Mom often says that I’m a very, very, verrrrrrry busy boy!  To tell the truth, I really love to play…a lot!  When I wake up in the morning, I can’t wait to find my favorite friend to pester and play with!  And that’s how my days begin!  Then, I go out to do my business and then I play some more!  I go back into the house and get a toy and bring it with me outside to play with!  Then, I find a friend to play with and maybe the cat is outside and if she is, well, I pester her too!  Then it’s time to come inside to rest.  Then it’s time to pull apart a toy and then play some more.  I think that you’re getting the gist here!  I love to play and I am very active all day until I go to bed at night!  My foster Mom says that I absolutely have to go to a home with a small (er), young, friendly and playful friend, otherwise, I just won’t be happy enough in my life!  I am the sweetest boy and I do not have a mean bone in my body…temperamentally, I have been told that I am awesome…a 10!  I have a fair amount of confidence, but need a little training to become the best that I can be.  I am smart and I am food motivated!  I love to explore and rough house with friends, so a fenced in yard is at the tippy top of my wish list!

 

Please let Furbaby Rescue know if you would like to meet me!  You will need to fill out an application first!  I am being fostered in Olympia, WA

 

All my best,

 

Murphy

(Adopted Nov.11/17)
Lilly
Havanese/Maltese "Havamalt"
Female/spayed/shots current
9 years old
7 lbs

Lovely little Lilly has now settled in with her foster family once again. Sadly, her original owners became ill and could no longer care for her. Lucky for her a very kind and caring friend stepped in and arranged for her transfer into rescue. (thank you Ellen!)  Then we placed her into a loving home, but because of a sudden family illness, she was returned to us. She grew up as an only dog and has done very well with the resident small dogs in her foster home. ( Large dogs are iffy for her right now)  She does do the barky in the face when meeting new dogs, but if they will stand up to her all will be settled quickly between them.  She's very active and you would never know she is 9 yrs old. Currently she weighs in at almost 7 lbs, but she should be a pound or two heavier. That will be taken care of with extra treats while her foster family gives her a refresher course with the 'recall command'. She walks very well on a leash, sleeps in a crate right next to her foster family without a peep. She is pee pad trained and being reminded its best to do that business outside if possible and she is doing well so far with that. She will just need someone to make sure she has the opportunity to get out the door as needed. Lilly is a delightful sweetheart and loves, loves being with her human and snuggling on a nice warm lap! (she's sitting on mine now assisting with this write up) She has come along very well considering all of the recent changes in her life and we are enjoying getting to know this darling of a girl and she will be a very loving companion with her new forever family. As typical with her breed, at times she can be a bit vocal so keep that in mind. She does fine with both men and women, but will not be a suitable companion for children under the age of 12 yrs old. Families with a securely fenced in yard with get preference. She is not reliable with the 'come' command yet. Lilly can't wait to meet her new family

Domo
Japanese Chin
9 years old
Neutered/Current Shots/Microchipped
15 lbs.

Lily
Tibetan Spaniel Mix
10 years old
Spayed/Current Shots/Microchipped
26 lbs.
 

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.

Darby
Papillion/Pomeranian
Male/neutered/shots current
2 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
there'.
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
be.

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
dogs.
*

Here in this house...

I will belong.*

* I will be home. *

There will be more furbabies needing forever homes.
