Sunny – Our Foster Dog

Sunny girl!

Sunny came to us as a owner surrender and is proving to be a real cuddle bug!  She is a senior, but is still full of energy.  Sunny is pretty much the whole package – she is house trained, crate trained, walks with a loose leash, and is happy just cuddling up at home. She doesn’t require a lot of exercise, but enjoys her time outside and has gotten along well with her foster canine brother! Sunny is timid in new settings so does need slow introductions to new dogs, but warms up quickly with the proper intros.  She prefers […]

James – Our Foster Dog

Handsome James!

Meet James! James arrived at his foster home looking like he’d seen better days. His eyes were sad, his coat was rough, and his entire body was painful. From the looks of him, he had spent his whole life outside and had never known the comforts of a loving home. He melted into his bed that night.  If you touched him wrong and/or surprised him, he would yelp in pain. When he made it to the vet, they cleaned years’ worth of gunk and debris from his sore, inflamed ears and a prescription for Deramaxx quickly took the edge off […]

Savanna – Our Foster Dog

Savanna profile

Welcome Savanna! This beautiful southern belle was surrendered to the shelter by her owner when they moved away. Her life was turned upside down in an instant, but we were there to turn it the right way round again. Savanna is now enjoying the comfort and love of her foster home. And good girl that she is, she’s proved to be both crate-trained and house-trained, and will go into crate with the command “go to bed.” She is also perfecting the commands sit, down, stay, come and leave it. She loves a nice few walks per day. So far, she […]

Rocco – Our Foster Dog

Handsome Rocco!

Rocco is a 5 year-old GSP masquerading as a senior! This handsome 12 year-old has got the energy of a much younger dog. He loves to go all day and then crash at night. Rocco will do best in a home where he gets plenty of exercise. He’d make a great jogging partner, and if you have a large yard, he’d love to police the area for squirrels! He also is happy to hang out at home while you’re away – he regularly stays in his foster home with freedom to roam for several hours and doesn’t get into trouble. […]
