name is Domo and Iím going to do all of the talking today because my best
friend, Lily, is taking a nap in the sun outside! Thatís OK because I
was napping earlier and Iím wide awake now! Me and Lily go way back, and
after all that weíve been through, Iím going to stay with my best friend no
matter what! My foster Mom, Jennifer, says that that is A-OK because many
people like to adopt two dogs at one time. Jennifer says that we look
after each other and keep each other company and all of that stuff is good for
our mental health! Jennifer took us to a very nice doctor and we got full
check ups. We even had our teeth cleaned! We are very healthy!
The only thing that I can say is that Lily loves to eat all of my food, so when
you take us home, it would be best if you fed us in different rooms because
Lily...well, you know...sheís a little tubby wubby right now. Jennifer
says that thatís OK too because we are working on getting her weight down and
we are exercising and doing yoga and trying very hard to make sure that she
doesnít have access to snacks and extra food!
am a Japanese Chin, a very special breed of Spaniel. I am sweet and
athletic and I donít even bark much! My bestie, Lily, is a Tibby mix and
she is also quite mellow and sweet and she isnít much of a barker either!
We arenít clingy dogs, but we like to be close to wherever you are! We
would really love for you to take us on all sorts of adventures!
canít wait to meet our new parents! Fill out an application today!

Meet sweet Maddie.
She is about 10 years of age and had a loving home up until the death of both of her owners. There was no place within the family for her and she was bounced around and sometimes hidden because no one wanted her to end up in a shelter alone and scared.
We took her in and found her to feel right at home. She found the water bowls right away, took instantly to a big back yard, and really enjoyed the resident dogs.
She went to our veterinary clinic where she received a full wellness exam; bloodwork, T 4, urinalysis, X rays of the body cavity and skeletal system, a dental, multiple extractions and dental X rays, a Cystotomy, and oops...a spay, as well.
After all of that she was bouncy, cheerful, cuddly and loveable. She has had her stitches removed, everything has healed so nicely, and she is just now looking for her forever home.
We have her listed as a special needs dog because she had a bladder stone and this will need to be monitored over the years.
Maddie prefers to be with the people but is fine on her own. She is just getting the "feeling" back after having the stone removed and is making quick progress on her pottying. She will do best with someone compassionate and patient while this progress continues; thus, she is not checked as fully "house trained". We want Maddie to have the advantage of her own little secure outdoor space so will insist on a fenced yard.
is being fostered in Kirkland Washington by Tim and Michelle and a host of very
helpful canine friends.

Cooper (14 lbs) & Max (6 lbs)

Microchipped/Current on vaccinations
We are very modest dogs but I just want to gloat for the first two seconds and ask - Does anyone realize that Maltese are one of the most sought after breeds? Did you read thatís what we are? End of gloat and back to being modest.
I am Cooper, the larger of us. I keep teasing Max that our names should be changed to Pint and Half Pint since heís half the weight I am. Heís never amused at that. Weíre both at a size that makes it easy to adopt us both and we donít take up a lot of space except in your heart. Weíll win that over. We do need to stay together because weíve been together forever. Weíre not biological brothers but we are bonded tighter than Gorilla Glue.
Personality wise, I am very curious and outgoing. I love exploring the fenced yard and play with Half Pint - I mean, Max. Itís fun to play with other resident dogs here at the foster home but we actually need a home with no other dogs and definitely no cats. Max is a littler more shy and he loves to snuggle with his favorite human. I heard someone say heís such a love. Well, I am, too, but I need to see whatís going on a bit more before I snuggle in. That doesnít mean Iíll love you any less than Max will.
The groomer raved about what good dogs we were for our beauty treatments. All of our dental work was done in 2016 so youíd be adopting two very healthy dogs and we know youíd love us so much that youíd continue to care for us forever and ever.
So how about considering at least meeting us and finding out that a pint and a half pint can offer gallons of love and devotion to 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!

12 years old
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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 can enjoy the warmth of the words.

If I am ill, I will be doctored.
