Maxx spent his whole life chained up outside, but thankfully a concerned neighbor rescued him and now we’ve stepped in! You would never know Maxx has lived such a hard life because he is the sweetest guy! He is a 4-year-old male who loves people, gets along well with other dogs, cats, kids, and loves playing with his ball! We are still learning more about Maxx and will update his posting as we do!

Suzy is a sweet 9-year-old female who ended up at the shelter as a stray and we couldn’t feel luckier to have rescued this adorable girl. You would never know that she’s been through so much already because she’s so calm and gentle. Suzy loves to snuggle with people and sleep under blankets. She’s recently had extensive surgery to be spayed and remove a number of lumps, and throughout it, she’s been such a trooper! Her foster dad describes her demeanor as always suggesting, “I am patiently waiting for you to snuggle with me again.” She loves meeting people, yet is quiet […]
Welcome to Pinto! This adorable 14 year-old gentleman is spry as can be for his age. He loves a nice long walk with his people (as long as there aren’t too many hills). After a walk, he loves to get a dog massage and then crash out for a few hours to nap. Sounds like the good life, right? Pinto is mostly blind, but not too blind to see the outdoor cats at his foster home! He’s living with several other dogs without any issues, although would be best in home where he doesn’t have to deal with too much […]
Juanna is a such a sweet senior – she’s got one of the nicest dispositions we’ve seen! She’s definitely over 10 years old and deserves a home where she’ll get spoiled every single day. Juanna loves being around people and hasn’t met a person or critter she doesn’t like! Her favorite past-times are hanging out at home near her people and taking naps. She loves soaking in the sun and will happily lay by your feet all day if you let her. Juanna may be an older gal, but she has plenty of love to give. She is a calm and […]
Thelma & Louise will steal your heart and are double the love! They are sisters with a special bond. Louise is the fearless one; but she is also the blind one. She will happily charge across the yard in pursuit of the critter she has sniffed out but otherwise she sticks right to Thelma’s heels. Thelma is the caretaker, always there to help her sister navigate back in the dog door and around all the household furniture. The two sisters’ favorite pastime is to follow their foster dad around wherever he goes. All he has to do is simply say their name and their tails […]
This is a courtesy posting for Top Dogs Rescue and Adoptions Lisette came to us after the family that bought her took her to the vet after episodes of vomiting and she was diagnosed with megaesophogus, which basically is an abnormally large esophagus. They were unprepared to deal with this for her lifetime and surrendered her to rescue. Lisette’s condition means that she needs to be fed sitting up for the rest of her life, but otherwise is a perfect little puppy. If she is not fed properly or gets into food she is at risk for aspirating which can […]
