Gwen’s age is a guestimate since she arrived at a local shelter as a stray. You could tell that she recently had puppies, was flea infested, had skin and ear infections and was underweight; just overall neglected. A bath, good food, supplements, and some TLC is turning this girl into a beauty. Even though she was in rough shape, she is a happy, social girl who loves human attention and affection. She also loves food and treats, which makes getting her attention, easy. Walks are enthusiastic adventures and fun. She has learned to be polite when humans are dining and only alert barks then responding to a shush cue. She currently weighs 66lbs and is slowing gaining, but probably is ideal at a curvy 72-75lbs. Her new home will be able to provide lots of hands on petting while also allowing her to be near her people most of the time.
Jay is a Labrador Retriever mix who gets rave reviews from everybody who meets him. Words like good natured, terrific walker, easy-going, really nice dog and more of the same are what we hear over and over again from his fosters. Jay is really easy to love, and when loved, gives it back generously and sweetly. Jay is 7 years old and, while we don't know much about his early life, he seems to have been loved and treated well by his humans, thus his endearing personality and enthusiasm for "shake." Jay loves to go on long walks and enjoys taking his time to sniff a lot along the way, but is also good at chilling when the mood needs to be mellow. Because Jay isn't a puppy he's polite and trained, but he's not an "old dog" yet because he's energetic, loves to play with toys and is eager to jump into the car for a ride. He gets along well with other dogs, sharing his foster home with a resident dog nicely, but we don't know about children. So far it seems like Jay doesn't know how to bark - he just gives happy groans. We are learning more about this sweet boy every day so check back for updates.
Malia is a 2-year-old Golden Retriever mix whose favorite hobbies include receiving belly rubs and being brushed. She’s timid but also very curious so we think she's on her way to becoming a confident dog in the ways of the world. Malia is an avid hunter of squirrels and is determined to catch one on her walks. Malia is intrigued by the “other dog” in the closet mirror and sometimes paws at her reflection. Malia is looking for a forever home without another dog that is also a quiet/calm household. Malia is learning to walk on the leash without pulling, but the squirrels in the neighborhood make this challenging when they show up. This sweet girl is doing very well with her potty-training - there have been zero accidents! Malia can be a Velcro-dog, but she's also able to hang out on her own. Malia seems to know “sit” and has a soft mouth when taking treats. She has displayed nice table manners when her humans are eating (i.e. doesn’t display overt begging). She knows the power of her paw and will use it to let you know she wants to be pet. Malia is an easy going dog thus far (unless a squirrel is involved) and is very keen on cooperating with her human. If you are looking for good company, Malia might be the dog for you. We’re excited to learn more about Malia as her personality blossoms.
Deniz was found alive in a trash yard near Istanbul. Our rescue partner was able to get a transport vehicle for him to the vet. This super cute and playful boy is friendly with everyone he has met. He loves to play fetch and will bring toys and tennis balls back. After a bit of fetch, he likes to play tug, roll around and get cuddles. He does like to go for walks and does 2 to 3 walks a day. He has sometimes done 5 miles in a day. His leash skills are a work in progress but he is getting more exposure and training in his foster home. He is also calm and relaxed and will be just as happy to hang close by when his humans are working. He likes to follow his people around the house which is typical of an affectionate Golden Retriever.
Orman/Karsi - Adoption Pending
Orman was rescued in Turkey in horrible condition wondering around the forest. He had a laceration on his side torso and his legs were beat up pretty bad. His lovely and sweet nature was no match for life of a stray. Now, he is getting lots of TLC, good food and cuddles. He is always getting noticed out on his walks and rewards his fans with a sit and hopefully get some pets. He was not sure about living in a house but his house training has progressed and he knows that his business is done outside now. He does like to hang out on the couch with his people and will occasionally jump up on the bed, but he is also good with sleeping in his bed near his humans.
