Year: 2017

Ted

Ted has been adopted! We’re not sure where Ted spent his previous life, but he seemed completely untrained when he came to us. He would jump up on everyone he met, and was clueless about how to behave indoors. He acted like a 41-pound puppy, zooming around and grabbing anything and everything he could reach. …

Freckles

Incredibly, Freckles spent an entire year living at a shelter. She had done nothing wrong, but her owner got caught up in a legal matter that required the shelter to keep her until the issue was sorted out. The shelter staff grew to love Freckles, and reported that she got along very well with adults, …

Hansel

Hansel stood out from the beginning as being quite handsome—and amazingly mellow for a two year old GSP. Maybe it was the heartworm that slowed him down. He soon found a loving foster home with humans who had lost their beloved GSP a few months earlier, and a nest that had just become empty as …

Grace

Grace was picked up as a stray, wearing an activated shock collar, the battery still good. I guess she decided to say farewell to that old life, the one that had gotten her into such poor condition – with worn teeth, two cracked molars, skin infections, and numerous callouses on her knees, elbows and rump. …

Franny and Ellsie

Franny and Ellsie – Together Forever! Who ever thought we’d use the phrase “lucky dogs” on this mother-daughter pair? Franny and her daughter Ellsie spent their early years chained up in a backyard. They came to us unspayed, and heartworm-positive. Treatment required them to be confined and kept quiet for months, which they endured patiently …

Deno

Deno is a Gentle Giant. This big guy came into rescue with kennel cough, but his cough worsened and turned into pneumonia.  He became very ill and almost didn’t make it, but his foster home (thank you Bill and Cheryl) gave him lots of loving care.  Once he recovered, he remembered how much he loved …

Charlee

Charlee was picked up as a stray when she was found roaming around Susanville chasing chickens. Animal Control called the phone number embroidered on her collar many times, but no one ever replied to the messages. Thank you Cari and Mark for fostering Charlee, incorporating her into your family of four dogs and three cats, …

Jeter

Oh how the life of Jeter (now Dieter) has changed! When his seizures became frequent, his owners surrendered him, because they could no longer afford his medications. One of our former adopters stepped up to foster him. Once his medications were adjusted, Dieter’s seizures stopped. He fit in so well at his foster home—playing tug …

Savanna

Savanna may be a senior dog, but don’t let that fool you!  She loves to play hard and could chase balls all day long, but she is also very smart.  This sweet girl realized right away that she’d landed in a great spot with her foster mom.  She soon learned a simple code language for …

Zuma

Maybe Zuma’s name should have been spelled Zoomer, because he just loves to run and play and wrestle with other pups.  When he met his new mom at a park for the very first time, he actually stopped playing for a minute!  He ran right up to her and licked her on the face, as …

Willy

WILLY is adopted! Willy was surrendered at the ripe age of 12.5 years. His senior owner had become unable to care for Willy the way he deserved. We found Willy to be pretty frisky for an old guy. He could pull on his leash with the best of them, chase after squirrels, and pursue the …

Jada

JADA is adopted! A job change led someone to surrender this super sweet and talented dog to the shelter. The minute she was sprung, she started making friends with everyone she met. Her first foster home fell in love with her super soft fur, her insistence on play and petting, her distain for kibble and …

James – passed away October 4, 2017

Rest in Peace, James Von Miller.  You were quite the character.  I loved when you’d get a wild hair up your butt and start romping around like a goat.  You were a big part of my life for over a year and I miss you.  No more mountains to climb, sweet boy.  Run free! Love, M

Reagan

Reagan is as handsome as he is sweet.  This 4-year old liver roan color guy got lucky, spending time in two great foster homes–first with one GSP sibling, and next with two other GSPs to show him the ropes.  He quickly teamed up with his canine brother to hunt bees, and agreed to let his …

Teagan

Teagan came to us as a stray, and we knew immediately that this cute and spunky one-year old gal deserved a better life than one at the shelter. She was initially fearful of new situations, but soon she settled into foster care (thank you Scott and Peter, and then Carol and Mike for fostering Teagan). She …

Turbo

Turbo’s foster mom describes him as “stunningly handsome and a complete clown.” This silly young guy loved to play with anyone who would entertain his goofy advancements. His new family plans to spoil him with car rides, runs along a river, kayaking, and a premium spot on their king sized bed!  Thanks Catherine and Mac …

Miss Lady

Miss Lady is adopted! Lady showed up as an owner-surrender, sweet and well mannered.  She bonded immediately with her foster family (human and canine, young and old—thank you Lisa for fostering Lady).   She enthusiastically shared toys, balls, affection, and snuggles.   She found joy in simply lounging on a dog bed, or playing with her own …

Petra

Petra is adopted! Petra’s forever mom must be a bit of a soft touch.  She first became a “foster failure” when she was taking care of Rally.  Then she decided to foster Petra, who looks so much like Rally, they could be siblings–and now they are going to be!  Petra’s sweet nature, good manners and …

Duke (fka Duke2008) and Charlie (fka Farley) – passed away August 2017

We rescued Duke and Charlie in 2009. They brought such love and joy into our home. It saddens me to have to report that we lost them both last month 19 days apart. Duke passed away peacefully at the age of 14 from old age-related complications. Charlie passed from mast cell cancer at the age …

Layla

LAYLA IS ADOPTED! If one were to draw a picture of “delight” is would look very much like our Layla. She’s ten years old and on the small side, but despite some hard knocks, her hummingbird tail never stops expressing her joy. Layla was picked up as a stray and wound up in a shelter. …

Beauford

Beauford came to us an anxious dog, in urgent need of a new home (thanks Kim for volunteering to foster him). He soon overcame his shyness and emerged as a playful, goofy boy, with his tongue always hanging out the side of his mouth and his whole body wagging. Young Beau seemed happiest wiggling up …
