Abby (#170439) & Banks (#170438)

Abby is a 9 yr old black spayed female and Banks is a 6 yr old chocolate male.  Abby weighs 58 lbs and Banks weighs 84 lbs.  They are up to date on vaccinations and both are heartworm negative.  Abby and Banks are a bonded pair and must be adopted together.  They are unknown with cats and are approved for ages 5 and up.  Banks is a big hunk of chocolate love. He would give kisses all day if he could. Abby is more reserved, and just seems to wants a quiet spot to hang out, and get some loving on her time. They are both food-motivated, although I've had a hard time trying to work with them because they get so excited when treats are involved (and I have a hard time getting one without the other.) They ignore shoes, laundry on the floor in the laundry room, papers, mail, trash, recycling, boxes, etc.) While they still haven't really figured out the dog beds, they don't tear them up either. They are both very easy to walk with a leash on a collar. They rarely pull, and never very hard. I walk them together all the time. They don't move very fast. They have met many dogs up at our local park and are friendly with all dogs and people we have met. They don't seem to know any commands, but are eager to please. They are just laid back country dogs looking for a little love.




Alvan (#170484)

Alvan is a 9 yr old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 89 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs and cats.  Alvan is approved for ages 6 and up.  Alvan is a retired service dog who finds himself in rescue after his owner passed. This smart fellow is a dream on the leash, prances for treats, plays wonderfully with his foster-pack and eats treats gently like a pro. He loves to be with the pack, even cramming into his foster momma's room at night to be where his pals are. Alvan knows some basic tricks and has also already picked up 'your bed', 'shake' and 'where's your toy'. The merits of this smart guy are too numerous- most of all, he is a loving, gentle, devoted pup who likes to be snuggled. Oh, and handsomely fetching with his reddish-blonde coat and goofy grin.




Bama (#170376)

Bama is a 12 yr old neutered black male.  He weighs 61 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Bama is approved for ages 10 and up. He is the sweetest guy who doesn't look or act his age. He enjoyed visiting a nursing home where everyone could pet him. Bama is a gentle guy looking for a place to live out his golden years.

Bama loves being with his people and gets long wonderfully with other dogs.  He's both house and crate trained and walks great on a leash.

Update from Bama's foster family Jul 31, 2017:

Bama says, I'm a catch! I'm the perfect companion. I love going for walks and am a dream on a leash. I love every dog I meet. I'm stuck like glue to my humans, I'm house and crate trained. Won't you give this sweet boy a chance? 

  




Dingo (#170495)

Dingo is a 9 yr old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 99 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Dingo is approved for all ages.  Dingo is very friendly, loves to give kisses and will crawl into your lap for love. He will turn upside down and wiggle so you can rub his belly.




Dixie #3 (#170292)

Dixie is a 12 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 74 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs and cats and is approved for ages 7 and up.  Dixie is a gentle and sweet girl whose life has been turned upside down by the death of her owner. She really craves attention and reassurance, but her confidence is beginning to return and she is starting to show a little interest in exploring on her own when outside. Her hind legs are a little wobbly; she can't handle slippery floors, so area runners are needed in those areas. She is excellent on a leash and immediately responds if called, though she's rarely more than a few feet away. Dixie doesn't pay any attention at all to the resident dogs; people are what matter to her. Ideal situation for her would be a calm environment and a person/people with lots of time to lavish attention on her, few stairs and no slippery floors. She doesn't want or need a lot of exercise, so a small yard or even no yard but a few short walks daily would be OK for her, skipping dog parks which may be too much action for her.




Dottie (#170303)


Dottie is a 10 yr old black spayed female.  She weighs 91 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  She is good with dogs andcats and must go to a home with another dog.  Dottie is approved for ages 10 and up.  Dottie has been wonderful. She is a sweetheart. Dottie has been left out in the house while we were at work and didn't pull a thing out of place. She was friendly when the dog walker stopped in to let her out and was a perfect guest visiting foster grandparents this weekend. She is pretty good on leash, despite her size. She doesn't pull and seems to enjoy walks. She chased a bunny in the yard and was eyeing up some squirrels and would have chased them if she was off leash. Dottie gets along fine with the resident dog and cat. She snoozes a lot, generally on the dog bed or floor, but she has scrambled onto the couch twice. Dottie does fine in the car, no trouble or reluctance to travel. Also was a trooper when we took her to the dog salon for a bath, a little reluctant to walk up the ramp but once in the tub, she was resigned to the bath and very cooperative. Dottie is just such a sweetheart, she is super friendly, calm demeanor, and very easy going. Loves to get scratches, especially on her belly!
Update from Dottie's Foster Family - May 11, 2017: Dottie is a friendly, outgoing, and happy-go-lucky girl. She used to live in a home with other dogs, so she needs to be adopted with another dog. She is housetrained and is used to roam around in a yard. Dottie is good with cats. We don't have any kid history, so she's approved for kids 10 and up.

Update from Dottie's Foster Family - May 20, 2017: Dottie has added groundhogs to the animals she wants to keep your yard clear of. She came across a snake in the yard and was curious and sniffed it byt didn't feel obligated to confront it. . She's an adventurous gal! Dottie is looking forward to a weekend full of outside lounging (she lays in the grass when not sprinting after critters) and lots of belly rubs. 






Duke #4 (#170388)

Duke is a 10 yr old black neutered male.  He weighs 69 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Duke is approved for ages 8 and up.  Duke is a good looking dog and is very active for his age. He likes to be with people, to get petted and makes everyone he meets is his friend.

From his owner: Duke will play ball and return it to you sometimes. He loves to swim in the ocean, and has done so many times going out quite a distance with the kids. He had free roam of house for up to 8 hours a day. Make sure always that food is out of his way as he will eat whatever is out on the counters. He will sleep just outside of the kids' doors, will also sleep on the sofa, or in the beds with anyone of them.

He is a great dog who is looking forward to meeting his new family who has fenced yard so he can wander around and check for critters who shouldn't be there.

Pokie has no problem getting around, even with his failing eyesight. He loves to play and is OBSESSED with his "babies". He sleeps with them, goes outside to go potty with them and just loves holding them in his mouth. Pokie is such a sweetie! 
 
Update from Pokie's foster on July 22, 2017: Pokie is still waiting patiently for his forever home. He is 8 years young and has impeccable house manners. Pokie runs up and down stairs at full speed and gets around just fine. Pokie begs for his twice daily insulin injections as he knows there's a treat involved. He is super loving and friendly to all people he meets. He is also obsessed with his stuffed animals and sun bathing. He would prefer that any doggie companions be super relaxed.
