Groot 2Hi! My name is Groot! I am a wonderful 2 year old Pit Bull Terrier. I might be the sweetest dog you will ever meet, I love everyone I meet! I do wonderful with other dogs, I just ignore them if they are not into me, but I do like having other dogs to play with. I just might be the perfect dog, I love to romp and play, but I am also a great snuggler! I would love a home were I got to do both, go on walks, hikes, and have another dog to play with, and have a couch I can take naps on! I am neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. If you would like to meet me just fill out an application here.


Tejas 1Hi there! My name is Tejas! I am a 10 year old Rat Terrier. I am a sweet older gal looking for a quiet little retirement home. I was surrendered to rescue because my family found out I was diabetic and was not able to properly care for me. My diabetes is under control and I am doing great! I previously lived with other dogs, but I do need a slow introduction to new dogs. And because of my age, I would do best in a home with older, mellower dogs. I have not been small child or cat tested yet. Because of my age I would probably do best with children over 10 years old who have dog experience. I am house broken, crate trained, and walk well on a leash. I am spayed, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped, and have current bloodwork. If you would like to meet me, please fill out an application here. See you soon!


Mitzi 7 Hi! My name is Mitzi! I am the sweetest little cuddle bug Chihuahua you have ever met! I am about 10 years old and weight about 8 pounds. I LOVE people and charm everyone I meet in no time. I love to burrow in blankets on chilly days. I am housebroken, but when I need to go out I need to go out so you have to watch me for my signals (I will do a little dance and run to the door.) I will use a pee pad in the house in a pinch. I get along great with other dogs, but can be a little bossy at times. I also like to bark at cats, but I have not been in a home with them so I may chase them. I have been spayed, had a dental, am current on vaccinations, have had a heartworm test and on a preventative, microchipped, and have current bloodwork. My adoption fee is $100. If you would like to meet me you can fill out an application here. Hope to see you soon!


Luke 2My name is Luke, nice to meet you! I am a sweet and lovable 11.5 year old 55 pound Rottie/Aussie mix. I am house broken, crate trained, and can use a dog door. I also know a few basic behaviors like sit, down, and paw. I am very food motivated and eager to learn new things (don’t be fooled, old dogs can learn new tricks!) I am not great with sharing bones, food and some toys so I eat apart from my foster siblings and only get my bone while in my crate (which is just fine by me!) When other dogs are being too rowdy and are running around too much, my herding instincts kick in and I can be a bit of a fun police. In general I get along well with other dogs that are more mellow and not too hyper, this old guy is not a fan of a younger dog’s hijinx! I do enjoy other dog’s company, but I would be happy being an only dog, I really just want to be with people. I am a huge cuddle bug! I do appear to have have discoid lupus, which the rescue is working on getting under control. You can learn more about discoid lupus here
I am neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and on a heartworm preventative. My adoption fee is $100. If you would like to meet me you can let the rescue know by filling out an application here. Cannot adopt me but would like to send me a gift? My personal amazon wish list is here. See you soon!


1418135248112Hi! My name is Jorey! I am a sweet little 13 year old Lhasa Apso/Mini Poodle mix. I weight about 15 pounds. I was found as a stray so not a lot is known about my past. I am am very friendly and silly once I warm up to a new person. I get along well with the other dogs in my foster home, and I ignore the cats. I love to go for walks, but with my age I do better on shorter walks. I am housebroken and will crate (but I do not like it much.) I am very healthy for my age! I have current bloodwork, am current on vaccinations, and recently had a dental. I did loose all my teeth when I had my dental, they were all rotten! Even so, I do not have a special diet, I wills till eat kibble with no problem. Because of my age I am not well suited for a home with small children. My adoption fee is $100 and you can fill out an application here if you would like to meet me. I know I am a little older, but if you take a chance on me, you are in for a special treat! See you soon!

Loretta 8

Hi! My name is Loretta! I am a very sweet 15 year old Cocker Spaniel. I was found as a stray so the rescue does not know anything about my past. I get along great with other dogs and I am great with cats.  Because I am a senior I would prefer a home without small children since I do not hear or see well any longer. I am house broken, but because I do not see well I will need some patience while I learn the layout of a new home. I have had a full work up at the vet and I am in excellent health for a dog my age! I recently had dental surgery and had to loose my remaining teeth because they were so rotten! Even toothless I eat hard food so I do not need a special diet. I will need regular grooming to keep up with my beautiful Cocker hair. My adoption fee is $100. If you would like to meet me you can fill out an application here.

Irie, FKA Apple, Update!

Irie CollageIrie, formerly known as Apple, came to us from a high kill shelter in New Mexico. She was a high spirited girl with a lot of energy to burn and a zest for life! She had several interested parties, but no one thought they were a match for her energy level until Elizabeth and Lauren came along. Elizabeth and Lauren were looking for a dog that could keep up with their active outdoors lifestyle, and Irie fit the bill to a tee! Oh the adventures the three of them have been on! It took some time to find the right family for Irie, but we could not have asked for a more loving home for our zany girl!
