Shasta 

Shasta is an 84 pound, 7 year old, eager to please Golden Retriever.  He came into rescue with his sister, Whitney, as an owner surrender.  His family loved him greatly, but the pandemic created a change in their circumstances and they wanted him to have more attention than they were able to give.  Shasta is on medical hold at the moment until he has surgery to remove two growths on his gums and, once recovered, he will start reviewing adopter applications.  In the meantime he is being fostered in a wonderful home where he gets all the love and attention he deserves.  We will provide an update after his surgery soon.

Whitney 

This sweet face belongs to camera shy Whitney, the most persistent ball retriever on the planet.  Seriously!  She would chase balls 24/7 if we let her.  She tells us being 7 years old is just a number that doesn't keep her from staying active.  She came into rescue recently with her brother, Shasta, and has settled into her foster home with high energy and excellent house manners.  Whitney is spayed, chipped, vaccinated and healthy at 70 lbs.  She has asked to stay by her brother's side, at least until he recovers from surgery, and then the two of them will consider what their next move should be.  We'll keep you updated as we learn more about Whitney's preferences.

Nate

This freckle faced cutie, Nate, revealed his sweet side quickly after coming into our rescue.  He is about one year old, a Lab mixed with we don't know what, neutered, vaccinated, chipped and he rides well in the car.  He is the perfect ambassador dog for us as he loves playing fetch!  He loves belly rubs, treats and the people who dole them out. Nate has started to settle into his foster home and is showing what a great temperament he has.  He needs to learn to walk better on leash and not to jump up in his glee to greet you, so his fosters are working with him every day to help him learn the ropes.  Because of his energy and enthusiasm, we think it's best for Nate to go to a home that has older kids who won't be bowled over by his enthusiasm.  When introduced to another sweet dog much smaller than he is, he was happy to engage and wanted to play.  He just needed some guidance about dialing down his energy a bit.  Nate loves, loves, loves his toys and his food, so training this smart pup is going to be cinch.
Summer Update: Nate has made great strides with the training his fosters have provided and is doing much better walking on leash and not jumping up in greeting.  He has been introduced to the basics of K9 scent work and loves the game.  He waits patiently while his foster loads treats into a food puzzle and only moves to uncover them when given the OK signal.  He is going to make an active family that is committed to his training and love of learning a terrific companion.

Sunny

Sunny was found as a stray and was skin and bones, but very friendly.  Now after a couple of months in a foster home, this petite one-year old girl has put on some much-needed weight, learned some house manners, loves playing with her foster doggy siblings, and loves her walks.  Her ideal home will have her humans home more often than not to continue with her manners and training. Sunny would thrive in a family who love the outdoors too. For being a smaller girl (around 35-39 pounds), she has a big appetite, a lot of energy, and will keep her family busy!  She loves playing with other dogs, so her ideal forever home will have another playful canine companion who enjoys playing all day long.
Sunny is keenly aware of her surroundings and will let you know through her bark when someone/something is nearby. She does not hesitate to jump in your lap and will greet you with lots of kisses when you wake up in the morning or return home. Proper introductions are important as she can be a little bossy when meeting new dogs and/or with her toys and food.  Sunny is very motivated by treats and will bring you many indoor and outdoor gifts. She is a wonderful girl who has so much potential being a forever friend to another canine and her people!

Ellen - still available for Adoption

Ellen, 5 months, 30 lbs is a joyful youngster. Every day is met with gleeful enthusiasm. Her favorite toy is ALL toys. She loves playing with her 1 year old golden retriever foster and snuggling with her 11 year old basset mix foster sibs. Prepare to laugh out loud when she sits on her fur sibling, stuffs her mouth with ice cubes from her water dish or steals toilet paper and runs like the wind. She is very motivated by toys and food but also just wants to please you.  She is crate trained, knows sit and waits to be fed. "Ellie" is improving on leash walking, not jumping on others and is 99% potty trained. She would do well with an active family willing to continue with her training and preferably a doggy companion. If that family is you and you are up for this sweetheart, give us a bark!

Madeline

Madeline is a chocolate Lab who is the mom to the litter of 8 puppies on our website, and a terrific mom she was. They are all healthy, well adjusted and thriving.   Madeline will turn 2 in September, has been spayed, chipped and vaccinated so she is ready for her new home now.  Her foster parents say she is very sweet and is adjusting nicely to her change in circumstances.  She didn't have much experience walking on a leash in her previous home, so her fosters are working with her on leash manners.  So far she is proving to be comfortable in a crate or on a dog bed, sleeping well at night, having no accidents in the house and is eating well.  She is a little shy with new experiences so we are giving her some time to settle into her foster home first, then will test her with kids and other dogs so stay tuned for an update.

Blondie 

This beautiful lady is six years young.  Blondie is housetrained and has a nice balance of being independent and Velcro. Blondie enjoys walking in the neighborhood and playing with other dogs she calls friends. This sweet dog loves people so much! If she had her way, every person she sees would pet her. Blondie has excellent manners when it comes to meeting new people (i.e. she doesn't jump). Blondie enjoys naps on the couch, hanging out with people, sunning herself, chewing on bones, and stuffed toys.
Blondie is looking for a home without children, cats, or another dog.
Blondie has had adopters who have opened their hearts and homes to her, but the adoptions were not successful for different reasons: her excitability when seeing cats and critters when she is on walks or in the yard and food related guarding.
Blondie needs a dog savvy adopter who has experience with resource guarding. Her adopter must be committed to using training exercises to help with her impulse control and demand barking (Blondie’s foster family says the exercises and techniques from behaviorist Barbara Davis, CPDT-KA, CDBC, SBA are a game changer!). Blondie has some anxiety and will need an adopter that will go slow to give her time to settle into a new home. Her adopter must also be comfortable keeping Blondie on anti-anxiety medication.
Blondie walks well in her foster family’s neighborhood, but she gets excited and can pull when exploring a new neighborhood or park. Over time Blondie has learned to slowly stalk squirrels instead of barreling towards them, but sometimes she will still pull towards one.  Blondie remembers every spot in the neighborhood where she’s seen a cat and readily dives into bushes to see if they are still there. Blondie loves to look for trash/food on her walks so having patience, a sense of humor, and some yummy treats on hand is a must.
Blondie is a fan of ear, neck, and butt rubs, and is a great TV watching companion. She enjoys being brushed and doesn’t mind having her ears cleaned. Blondie has been known to “share” her toys with members of her foster family who often find at least one, if not more, toys on their lap. Blondie enjoys a good game of tug, and her foster dad likes to toss toys for her to catch – she’s not good at catching, but her attempts will make you laugh, and you will erupt with joy when she is successful.

Kiki

Kiki is a 2 year old, 40-45 lb female, Aussie/Flat coat retriever mix.  Kiki can be a bit shy, even fearful, with new people but with help, she can get quite comfortable.   It doesn’t take long until she is cuddled up with you, belly up for pets or loving to rest her head on your lap. She has medium energy that can be really brought out during walks and play time. Other than this though, Kiki is quite a relaxed dog. She has a very calm behavior in the car which tells us she would be a great road trip companion. Overall, she would be perfect for anyone who enjoys snuggling with their furry companion on the couch, but also wouldn’t mind going for a decent walk. She is knowledgeable with sit, down, come and stay and she gently takes her treats.  She likes toys to chew on but has not demonstrated any demolition skills yet.  She would like a family that wants to have her sleep with them and she does not take up too much room or overcrowd you.  Her house manners are impeccable and she will alert you when guests arrive.  She can get excited when she sees other dogs out walking but with continued training, she is becoming a fun walking companion.
