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. 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!

Our Seniors

senior collage 2


November is national adopt a senior month! We have several amazing seniors available for adoption. You can learn more about Mazie, General, Chloe, Itachi, and Loretta by clicking on their links!



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!


Summer 1 Hi there! My name is Summer! I am a 3 years old Jack Russell Terrier mix. I am housebroken when kept on a routine and crate trained. I do well with other dogs, but I would not mind being the only dog either. I have been around cats, but I do tend to bark at them a bit. I do well with older children who can be respectful of my space. I like to go for walks and car rides. I am VERY food motivated and would do well in training classes. But my favorite thing in the whole world is snuggling! Are you looking for a sweet little snuggler, because I might just be your gal! I am up to date on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. May adoption fee is $175. Please fill out an application if you would like to meet me!


Mazie 2Hi there! My name is Mazie! I am a sweet little 8.5 year old 12 pound Bichon Frise. I am such a little love bug and goofball! I get along great with other dogs, I really like to play! I do well with cats too, but sometimes I will bark at them a little bit. I would also do well with older children, over 7 years old, who would be respectful of my space. I am house broken, crate trained, and can use a dog door. I am current on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. My adoption fee is $200. If you would like to meet me, you can fill out an application. See you soon!


Joey Raindeer
Hello, my name is Joey. I am a very sweet two year old, about 15 pound, Jack Russel Terrier/Cattle Dog Mix. I am housebroken and can use a dog door. I am also crate trained, but I do not really need to be in one, I am a very trustworthy boy. Not much is known about my past, but it is clear that I may not have been treated well so I need an experienced dog owner that can help me with my trust issues. My personal space is a big deal to me when I meet new people. Once I get to know you I am full of snuggles and kisses, but I am not the kind of dog you can pick up and kiss the first time you meet me. Being a Jack/Cattle Dog Mix you might think I am bouncing off the walls, but I am really a balance of couch potato and running buddy. When you are ready for your daily run, I am right there. But when you are ready to chill out, I will curl up on the couch with you for movie night. I would do best in a fairly active home that could taking running. I would also like to take positive reinforcement training classes and/or agility classes, I am a very smart boy and am eager to please. I do know a few basic behaviors like sit and stay already, but I would love to learn more. I would do best in a home with children over 10 because I do tend to be a little mouthy. I am neutered, up to date on my shots, have had a dental, heart worm negative, and micro chipped. My  adoption fee is $175. If you would like to meet me you can let the rescue know by filling out an application.
