ADOPTED -- When our volunteer, Cindy, met 6.5 year old Phoebe recently she summed up her personality by saying "she's a great little dog!" Phoebe was delighted to meet a person who had come especially to meet her! She wagged her tail, was outgoing and not at all nervous about meeting a stranger. (All our volunteers are very special "dog people".)
ADOPTED December 2020! - A SPECIAL NEEDS BONDED PAIR NEEDS OUR HELP!

Update: Sadie and Jada will soon be seeing a veterinary ophthalmologist for a complete exam.
Five year old Jada and her best buddy, six year old Sadie, are a truly bonded pair - and they're both blind.
Although Sadie, a neutered male, is blind he always knows where Jada is - and she relies on him. When they go for leash walks with their mom, Sadie is the leader and he walks ahead of his mom and Jada follows behind her - it's quite the parade.
Sadie was especially attached to his dad who died a few months ago. He was his loyal companion and stayed right with him throughout his illness. He was also with him when he died.
Suco -- ADOPTED! - Recent update from Suco's foster home.
Suco is a beautiful 5-year old cocker who spent much of his life indoors with very little access to the outdoors. He lived in a small apartment and used pee pads. He was rarely groomed.
Suco has settled in nicely at his foster home. He was initially very anxious and had nervous diarrhea - but he has settled into the routine and loves to be outside. He has not had any accidents for several weeks and understands going outside to do his business. When he gets fidgety and is offered to go outside it usually means he needs to go. Sucos foster home has a big fenced yard (which he loves) and two other cockers. He gets along well with other dogs and is not aggressive around them, or food.
