Successful Other Small Breed Adoptions
(Adopted March 9/13)
5 years old
Gizmo is a Chihuahua with a lot of attitude and personality. He is fun to have around. He loves when I open “the gate” because he thinks he’s getting away with something. He doesn’t realize he’s “escaping” into a fully fenced area.
He’s a very sweet and loving little dog who has been loved dearly by a family all of his young life. His mom and dad work very long hours far from home and he has been living in a crate for 12 hours a day. They love him dearly and know that that is no life for this little fellow so asked us to take him in to find him a home where he can be engaged and cherished and free from a crate.
He will be your dear and devoted friend, your warming companion at night, and a delight to have around. He’s got some long legs on him; they call him a deer Chihuahua because of those legs. That just gives him the ability to be more active and keep up with you.
The little stinker knows when I’m trying to get a photo of him so most of his pictures show him running away or turning his head to the side but he’s a gorgeous little fellow with beautiful markings and you can see him “smiling”.
He seems to get along great with other dogs. He’s playing with Muppet, a Shih Tzu we have. They have become good friends as the only small dogs in their foster home. He doesn’t seem to bother cats.
He is just one of so many thousands of Chihuahua’s looking for a forever home but he is a special little dog with a lot to offer.

Dachshund (mixed with something wonderful)
3 years old
is an affectionate and fun loving addition to her foster family. She loves to
partner up with a standard dachshund for some wrestling and follows that up with
a few laps around the garden. She is now housebroken, with the exception of a
few accidents when left alone for the day. Brandy
loves to play catch, especially when the ball belongs to another dog. She loves
them all, from a 2” Chuckit to a tennis ball. She is normally speedy and
graceful, but her legs fly in all directions when she is chasing the ball on
first glance, Brandy’s “Flying Nun” ears and 18” height made us doubt
there was a dachshund in there. But she has the dachshund’s proportionally
long body, expressive face, and the desire to make every lap her own resting
place. Her long legs give her a big advantage over the dachshunds in the house.
She never has to ask for a lift onto the bed, she just leaps up and curls
herself into a ball, satisfied to sleep in the proximity of her new family.
Brandy is now residing in Seattle, WA

6 months old
name is Simba. I am a super sweet, sensitive, and fun puppy face.
didn’t start out really good. I was really neglected, a tangled mess, a
little thin, and then I ended up in a big shelter. Sad. But then I
got really lucky one day. Furbaby Rescue came along, scooped me up, and
took me into their loving care. That was the first best day of my life.
I am such a joyful little guy now, and I’m doing great at building my
the tiny dog in my foster home and follow her everywhere. Sometimes I am
so close I just keep walking into her. She is really nice to me and helps me
learn about the good doggie life. I would really like a home that has
another small, kind and social doggie to keep me company and to be my playmate.
I am a
super active and fun fluffball. My favorite activities are playing ALL the time,
chewing on my kongs, having fun with the toys, and investigating everything in
the house. Since I’m a puppy it’s important for me to have plenty of the
right things to chew on and keep me busy.
am tired I love to snuggle under the blanket in my favorite bed on the sofa. I
mastered the doggie stairs to get there in about 2 minutes. I also like to
cuddle with you on your blanket and gets lots of soft tickles.
I do my
business outside really well and am doing really good with my potty trainer
refresher course. Like all dogs I will need to be on a regular schedule, and
then I will quickly tell you when I need to go with my signals. I am also
crate trained and do great when my foster mom needs to be out doing stuff.
I am a
little afraid of baths, not surprising considering my past, so I will need a
really nice and patient family to help me with this. I also don’t like
the blow dryer too much, but not as bad as the bath. I do like to have my
face cleaned with a washcloth and I’m good at getting my hair brushed every
the yard is an adventure for me when it’s not too cold outside, and I need
someone to watch over me when I’m out there. After all, I am really tiny.
can promise to take great care of me always, get me groomed on a regular
schedule, feed me quality food, be kind and gentle with me (remember I am a
little sensitive), help me with my confidence, and love me forever then please
email Furbaby Rescue for an application. Quite the list I know, but in
return I will bring my new family lots of fun, cheer, puppy antics, and
wag my tail at you soon,
Boy it was hard for Simba to pick out his new family with all the applications, but he did and he is so happy, residing in

West Highland Terrier
2 years old
Millie was only 18 months old when she had her last litter at the puppy mill. She decided that she did NOT want to be a mother; did NOT want to feed or care for puppies and refused to do it; thereby making herself of no value to the puppy mill breeder. Luckily for Millie she was offered to rescue and came to live in a foster care.
Though she is a bit shy at first especially with women, Millie is a true Westie-an active happy-go-lucky terrier who loves to run and dig and chase. Once Millie gets to know and trust someone she is a lap dog and a major cuddlier. Her favorite place to sleep is on top of her person and she tries her best to burrow right into your arms or at least to sleep with her nose or her bottom tucked up against you.
Millie is making good progress on her house training and her house manners (after all you don't learn those things living in a mill). She gets along well with other dogs and is even learning to play with them; chase me is her favorite game. Millie has no health issues but does seem to have some of the Westie food allergies so her new home will need to be aware of this and careful about what she gets to eat.
is looking for a Westie (or at least terrier) experienced home. She extremely
smart and learns quickly but will need someone who is willing to continue
working and training with her. We are looking for an adult home for Millie and
do not think she would do well with cats. Experience with puppy mill
dogs definitely a plus.
Perfect home, for a wonderful lil girl, now
residing in The Dalles, Oregon

She is good with other dogs and lives in a foster home with cats (cats who...

practicing her training (she knows sit, down, some, spin, wait and stay) she is
crate trained, potty trained and walks well on a leash. she loves toys
(ok, she loves to gut toys) like I said... typical terrier.
is looking for a home with no kids and someone who loves the terrier spirit.

Long Haired Chihuahua
11 years old
is true to her name. a beautiful, loving, sweet dog looking for a
warm lap. She is quiet, but outgoing. She loves everyone she
meets and does great with other dogs and cats. She is a senior lady who
simply wants to retire. She would love to stay at home and hang out or
join you as a snow bird. She loves strolls in the park, snuggling in
the bed and having snacks. She uses a wee pad if needed, but happily
goes outside when asked. She is very polite and knows how to sit when asked.
she came to us we took her to the veterinarian right away. She has
some mild liver disease and arthritis in her shoulders, but she is doing
well. She is on a liver supplement and will need to have her blood values
rechecked in a month (included in her adoption fee) She has some tarter on her
teeth, but she will be getting them hand scaled at the vet office this
tend to live long, long lives, she is a delightful dog and should have
many years left to join your family.
Lovey has a
"lovely" family, where she will be cherished, residing in Moscow,

Chinese Crested Powderpuff
2 years old
Please watch his adorable video
This beautiful boy spent the first 10 months of his life locked in a pen in a backyard breeding situation. Lucky for him, some very kind people swooped him away from there and brought him to rescue! Since he has only lived in a pen up until now, he has much to learn about the outside world. He is a very nice boy and is adjusting to all of the changes and new experiences very well. He will need a family that understands this will take time and patience on their end to work with him and the rewards he will give back to you will be great and many!!
Journey does have some separation anxiety issues and we are working on these. Due to this, he will not do well home alone for long hours at a time. (he will be very vocal at times in that situation) Powderpuffs normally do not shed, but Journey does slightly. He's getting used to brushing and I'm finding hair in the brush when we are finished. He is currently in housebreaking 101 and that is a work in progress. In a couple of weeks time he is catching on very quickly! Chinese Cresteds bond closely with their humans and crave to be with them as much as possible. When he sees me coming he leaps high into the air with excitement and his whole body does the wiggly squiggly happy dance!!! He's learning to play with toys and LOVES to zoom around the yard at warp speed!! (a trait of the breed) Zoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooom!!! Zoom, Zoom, Zoom! This is a new freedom for him so a fenced yard for him only!! He has done his time locked in a pen 24/7 with no play time! He's learning that belly rubs are a very 'good' thing indeed and will give many kisses in appreciation!
If you are interested in Journey, please do your research on the the breed! Chinese Cresteds are sight hounds and were breed originally to hunt vermin, and they still will! They will give chase to small prey so a securely fenced in yard is a MUST! There will be NO EXCEPTIONS! (invisible fences and a dog park three blocks away will not qualify!) Also, since he is a 'mill dog' he will only be placed in a home with another dog of similar size (Journey at this time is fearful of large dogs) to help him continue to gain his self confidence and to show him 'the ropes'.
Prior to his adoption, the new family interested in him must contact www.friendsforlifecsf.org and have him signed up for training classes to help him along with his socialization. This is a scholarship program set up to help all foster dogs going into their new forever homes adjust and you can get more information from the website. The trainers work with reward based training and trainers are available through out the state so we will locate one in your area you can work with.
Journey is a very, very special and a very, sweet little dog! And I've worked with many 'mill dog's'! He is settling in more everyday and blending right in. Recess out in the yard is his most favorite time of day! Play, play, play!! He will not be placed in a home with children under the age of 12 yrs old and dog experience is required for this dear one! We gave our word we would help Journey begin his new life away from the mill life 'right', and we will!!!! He has many adventures ahead of him so let's make sure this journey is a grand one for him! He is a gem!

Happily enjoying life,

(Adopted April 7/13)
3 years old
When Minnie and her boyfriend Mickey first arrived, it seemed that they needed to stay together. After living with them
for awhile, they are fine separated. Yes it would be great if they could both be adopted together, but believe they can thrive in a happy home without each other.
Minnie is just a little shy to begin with, but don't let that fool you. She is the sweetest lil girl. There is no such thing as a toy Schnauzer, but if there was, she would be it. She is a very small lil girl, weighing just over 10 lbs, and short lil legs. Minnie is a treasure, she loves to play with toys, she adores cuddling and giving kisses. One of her favorite things at night time is snuggling under the blankets, and keeping you warm. When she gets too warm, you will wake up to find her on top of the blankets.
She is housetrained, she uses a dog door. She is fun, loving and just a doll. Her terrier attitude certainly comes out, when she doesn't want another dog to steal her toy, and she has no problem showing her bossy side...but never with people, she is just an angel. She walks great on a leash, travels very well in a car, either crated or carseat, for her safety.
PS...her pictures do not do her justice, she is so cute in person
Adopted with Mickey, residing in Surrey, B.C. Canada
(Adopted April 7/13)
3 years old
Mickey arrived with his girlfriend Minnie, it was felt in the beginning these two needed to stay together, while it would be great if they could be adopted together, I believe they will each thrive in a new home without each other.
WANTED: Very active, young at heart,
Schnauzer loving human(s). Translated that means you don't have to be 20 years
old. If you're 70 and still very active, that works. If you are in your 20's and
active that also works but Mickey needs someone who won't be gone all day or he
would love a buddy to play with. He's a well behaved dog just wanting and
needing to be active and that's good because he uses up his energy in a
constructive way and is content to settle down and sleep when the time is
Mickey needs just a little time to
trust once placed in a new environment. He will be friendly when meeting you,
but once in his own home, it is advised, to just allow him to feel comfortable.
Within a week, he becomes the most loving, happy, joyous lil fellow. He
loves loves loves toys, he loves to be with you and he just enjoys life. He
likes to play with other dogs. He is house trained and that's always a big plus
when adopting a dog. Whomever adopts Mickey won't be able to help but
break into a smile when you're greeted by Mickey if you really have to leave him
and then come home. Mickey will be so overjoyed that he will turn himself inside
out in joy that you have returned.
Mickey is a stunning boy with a face that almost looks human. He is at the perfect weight, lean and agile. He trots like a racehorse, can jump really high, and leap onto your lap and couch in a blink. This boy will put his paws on you, and stand forever if you keep petting him, and if you decide to ignore him, he will bring a toy, and hope and pray you will play tug of war, or just play with him. At the same time Mickey isn't like Super Glue and always stuck to you for active attention. He can be perfectly content in your lap, or beside you while watching TV.
Just for reinforcement, it is Furbaby
Rescue's policy to not adopt to anyone with young children. If you are a young
active adult interested in Mickey but you do have plans to start a family in the
future, there's probably a better choice of breed for that scenario. Mickey is a
good dog and deserves the best with no risk of ever being rehomed again due to
change of family circumstances. He's been down the road once. Now if that
arouses your curiosity regarding Mickey's past, feel free to ask questions of
his foster mom.

(Adopted April 10/13)
4 years old
is a Standard Dachshund at 25 lbs who tends to get carried away with his
job of protecting home and loved one. He needs an owner who understands
that he should be crated or confined to another room when company comes over.
Rudy is very loving and devoted but needs firm guidance when it comes to anyone
entering "his space." An excellent cuddler and back-warmer under
the covers at night, he loves his share of attention. He is definitely a
character and whoever adopts this wonderful guy will be lucky indeed.
neutered, UTD on vaccines, microchipped and 4 years young!
