My Story

Date into rescue: 12/28/2017

Reason for being in rescue? Owner surrender, owner lived in senior living and got complaints about barking

Special Needs?He has luxating patellas common to small dog breeds, but they do not seem to be causing any pain or lameness at this time 

What kind of home would be best for me? Quiet home

What is my personality like? Friendly

How do I act when I meet new people? Friendly

Tips and Tidbits: Foster Mom says I have this little friendly growl that I do, whenever she picks me up or I see something new.  I am a quiet guy that doesn't bark a lot. I love to snuggle with people and have started to play.  

House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours.  We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
