Rain sitting

I am so overjoyed with adopting little girl Rain, feeling so Blessed.

Rain is so happy to have two ‘brothers’ who just adore her! From wrestling to playing ball to playing in the pool, there is always dogs in motion! She loves going for car rides, hiking in the park, and we are halfway through our Beginner’s dog training class.

Thank you so much for bringing so many smiles and joy to us all!

I’ve Been Adopted

Phoenix headshot

Phoenix was found on the side of the road by a good samaritan. She wasn’t able to use her left rear leg because it was very badly broken and she wasn’t able to go to the bathroom due to the extent of the swelling from the injury. Her leg was beyond repair, so she had surgery to amputate it, and she was started on medication to decrease the swelling. She did very well through surgery and through her long road to recovery, and now she is ready to find her future family!

Phoenix has adapted very well to life with three legs. She runs and plays with the other dogs in her foster home, and she loves to wiggle her way into her foster mom’s lap when she’s sitting on the couch. Phoenix is a BIG fan of snuggles and isn’t shy about asking for them!

She is wary of new situations and tends to be somewhat timid. She prefers people over dogs, but gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home. She will not eat around the other dogs, if they come over to her bowl she immediately walks away.

Scooter is a true sweetheart! He is blind from glaucoma, but doesn’t let that get in his way much. His first two days in foster he mapped the house and yard, decided leash walks are the best thing ever, enjoyed car rides, behaved himself perfectly, adapted to the family routine, met other dogs politely, and appreciated all attention. Other than glaucoma, he is healthy, up to date on shots, hw negative and on preventatives, neutered and microchipped. Scooter is 48 pounds, and believed to be about 8 years old, so has many years of love to give. He is good on a leash, has lovely house manners, and knows how to be a GOOD boy!

Before adoption, Scooter will have surgery to remove both eyes, saving him from ongoing pain and eliminating the need for daily medication. Silicone implants will be inserted behind his closed lids to give him a more normal appearance (as though his eyes are simply closed). Sight is a dog’s least important sense and Scooter is perfectly happy to ‘view’ the world primarily through his nose and ears.
