Successful Other Small Breed Adoptions
Chihuahua (possible mix)
18 months old
Jack is a fun little dog, brimming over with personality. He was picked up as a stray. While at the humane shelter he made the "great escape" digging himself out and under the fence. He then proceeded to trot down the road three blocks, stopping at the local doggy daycare. Guess he wanted to be were the action was! While he's been at his foster home he hasn't made any attempts to "break out". On the contrary, he reliably stays in the yard and close to his people. The open road holds no appeal for this little guy. He's ready to set down roots and stay where he is loved.
Jack hasn't ever met a stranger he didn't like. Though, be warned, the longer he is in his foster home the more territorial he becomes. Now, while he is barking at "intruders", he's also trying to lick them! He get's along well with most other dogs. (preferring the lady dogs over the guy dogs) He would prefer it if he didn't have to share your lap with them, but he will if he has to. Housebreaking is in the works, and he readily accepts a bath. He feels that sleeping with his people, as a necessity.
Jack is a pretty little dog with warm brown eyes. He trots around with his nose in the air and his tail wagging. He loves car rides and outings. He's large enough to keep up on a hike, but small enough to cuddle up in your lap. He desires to please and be close to his favorite people. This little dog, with the BIG personality, wants a "forever home" and will prove himself to be a wonderfully loyal friend and companion.
Great new life and home

24-30 months old
Ziggy is a bouncy, happy young dog who is still very much a puppy. He is an active boy who loves to run, to fetch toys or balls, and to romp. He likes to play with other dogs but he especially wants to be with his person. Ziggy knows a lot of commands, will heel on a leash and listens very well. He is very well house trained and is crate trained
Ziggy was adopted 6 months ago but came back into rescue because his owner was not able to give him the level of activity that he needs. If he is left alone for long periods of time Ziggy can get into things (like the garbage or magazines or pretty flower arrangements); remember we mentioned he is a puppy!
Ziggy originally came into rescue because he did not do well in a family with several toddlers-he is way too bouncy and busy himself. Ziggy would do well with an active family and possibly with a teen or older child or another dog to play with. He would also really like a yard to run in and someone who is not gone 8-12 hours a day. Ziggy is slightly more comfortable with women than men but a treat or some calm pats and he warms up pretty quickly.
App. 18 months old
very affectionate and just a little possessive of his person with respect to the
other dogs but takes discipline nicely. He can sit for a treat and walks nicely
on a leash. He did not seem to know what a dog door was on arrival but has
figured that out in no time. He is active but not hyper. He is happy to
lie by your side if that is what you want to do but is ready for a walk when you
put on your coat. He very much wants to be with his person.
We will be checking him with walking and meeting new people as time goes on. He seems a very sweet dog.
Happily residing in

Lucy is a kind and gentle dog. She has an unassuming presence that is MISSED when she leaves the room. She will let you know when a visitor arrives, but doesn't carry on about it. She easily trusts, after a gentle pet to show that you mean her no harm. A treat will coax her close. She loves walking, hiking, or hanging out while you do outside chores. Loyally keeping you in her sight. Or, in her unobtrusive way she'll follow you from room to room while you clean house. When you sit down she is delighted to snuggle in your lap, but is equally content to be on the floor at your feet. She is the first to jump in the car to go "bye-bye", but will gently whine once the car is in motion. She feels better if she can sit, touching a favorite person during the voyage. Frequent car trips, are teaching her that she has nothing to worry about. Being the lady that she is, Lucy tries always to demonstrate good doggy manners. Well... during a moment of weakness, she may have begged for food once or twice,.
Lucy was surrendered when her family moved and they could not take her. She is housebroken, and accepts bathing well enough to get the job done. She likes cats, if they run! She isn't sure what to do if they don't. So cat owners take note. Lucy gets along great with other dogs. She also, is an excellent foot warmer at bedtime. Her warm, gentle, spirit would be a welcoming addition to any home. She is a keeper!
Lucy has a wonderful
new home in Vancouver, B.C. Canada

Simon and Dolly
Male and Female/spayed/neutered/shots current
12 months old
8 & 9 lbs
Dolly and Simon are a lot of fun and full of play. They are brother and sister and just turned one year old. They are small, around 8 lbs and very shiny and trim. They obviously look very much alike and really need to be placed together as they love each other and enjoy each others company. It is apparent they are very bonded to each other.
Simon is needier and dislikes the unfamiliar. He is more vocal as well. He was kept under an overturned laundry basket to keep him 'out of trouble' or 'out of the way', but this has hurt him. He is terrified of baskets, tubs and buckets. His last caretaker (it was supposed to be temporary) has tried to potty train them and it is still a work in progress and they are crate trained.
These babies are going to give their new family a lot of entertainment as they play and learn. I can see already they are going to be a kick to have around. Real people pleasers!!!
These twins have found a
wonderful home, residing in Seattle, WA

Long haired Dachshund
6 months old
Maxx is one great dog. He lived with a family that had children and another dog and got along fine with everyone. He has not met anything or anyone he doesn't like. His tail is always wagging and he is such a happy boy.
He is young and just neutered. He is recovering nicely. He needs some work on potty training. He is a red sable with beautiful thick long hair. He was called mini but he is going to be a tweeny we think as he is only 6 months old and already 12 lb. He was born in August.
He just had all his shots so is ready for his new home. He has not been well leash trained but he is a smart boy. He learned the doggy door in about a minute. He likes to sleep in the bed and is quiet there. During the day in his foster home he has been crated but he is not crazy about it. He is not destructive when left alone but he is a puppy!!
Maxx gets along fine with the resident doxies and likes to play with the 3 yr old Oscar, also a doxie foster.
He is going to be one fun and happy addition to a lucky family.
Maxx is now residing happily in Ferndale, WA
