All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $600 Aunt Cass is a 1 year old Miniature Pinscher mix who weighs 8.8lbs. She was a stray at the shelter. They had no idea she was very pregnant. She came in one day and the next day they went to her cage and she had puppies. We were contacted and asked if we would take her and the puppies in. She is the Mom of the Big Hero puppies. She has been with her pups up until the last few weeks when they went off into separate foster homes. After getting a break from the rambunctiousness of her puppies, her personality has begun to shine, and her foster has seen what a loving and easygoing dog she truly is. Cass usually attaches herself initially to the female in the home. We've seen it happen in both foster homes. Almost instantly she was on the female's lap and wanting affection and attention albeit still scared and possibly even shaking. For about a week, she is reserved, even a bit combative if the males in the home try to force her to interact. If she is simply ignored, about the 1 week mark she decides to accept everyone in the home. She becomes more confident and open with the males. From there out, Cass is super playful and snuggly and loves to be licking your face or in your lap and next to you more than anything else. Cass has a lot of energy and will play with her toys by herself for a lot of the day. When out on walks and meeting strangers, she's still very cautious and has actually nipped at strangers that reach out to grab her. So she has to have a home that is her advocate, understands her level of comfort, and is willing to tell folks to just let her be and not try to interact. She loves to go on walks. She was walking twice a day until recently spayed and while recovering is going on much shorter walks. Cass does pull on a shorter leash, but with a longer leash, she's usually pretty good about walking ahead and then waiting or coming back when she sees you're too far behind. She will pull very hard when she sees squirrels and go sprinting after them if you let her. Except when enthralled by squirrels, Cass does generally come when called. Aunt Cass previously lived with two dogs. She is not likely one to be doing zoomies around your couch or trying to play with other dogs right away. She lived with a French Bulldog puppy and a Golden Retriever. She can peacefully co-exist. She is also a dog who can live by herself. She currently lives with a cat. She initially tried to chase the cat and her foster parents put an end to that. She was fairly easily corrected. Now on occasion, she still tries to get the cat to play but the cat is not having any of that. So poor Aunt Cass has to go off and entertain herself. Aunt Cass is housetrained. Her foster takes her out regularly so she hasn't whined to go outside or alert that she needs to do so as they are very consistent. She has a watchdog personality and is always ready to alert to anything suspicious around the house or outside. Her foster home uses a crate when they need to leave her or at night. She does whine initially when she goes in. But she settles down. She will chew. If something is left out and she finds it interesting she'll munch on it. She can be redirected easily to her toys though. She barks if she hears unfamiliar sounds. She stops when corrected. It's not a persistent barking. Aunt Cass is very affectionate and loving. She is a dog who will love her people unconditionally but may always be more reticent with strangers. Aunt Cass is only an option for a home that has had a dog previously as an adult. If there are children they need to be over the age of 10.  show less

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $500 We are open to a foster to adopt situation for Butter Beer's forever home.  Butter Beer is a 2 year old Yorkshire Terrier mix who weighs 12.1 lbs. She was a rescue from the shelter. She has lived in a foster home for the past month. She came in undersocialized. She will take a forever home that allows her to adjust, acclimate and build her confidence. This will take time. It doesn't happen in a day or a week's time. She has become comfortable in her forever home, happily wagging her tail and running around the house with her foster siblings. But she will need continued love and attention to blossom. BB loves to spend her days sleeping in a dog bed outside in the sunshine with her foster dad. She loves to boop her foster parents with her nose and rest near them on the floor when they watch TV. She will run up to greet her foster parents when they arrive home with the rest of the pack. But she tends to stay just in back so she's not up front demanding attention or affection. She's just present with them. BB is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own in the last five years. More than just having a dog, we are looking for a home that is dog savvy and gets the challenge of an under-socialized dog and is prepared to put in the time and effort. Priority will be given to homes that have a dog currently.  If there are any children in the home they need to be over the age of 13.  show less

Cindy Lou Who

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $600 Cindy Lou is a 4 year old Doberman mix who weighs 55 lbs. Cindy Lou Who was a rescue from the shelter. We received a call that one of our local shelters was filling up and needed help. We gladly met the dogs and agreed to take them into our rescue. This good girl is incredibly sweet and affectionate. With her love of pets and nap time, this pup is ideal for someone who wants a dog to sit next to them on the couch everyday. She will love you unconditionally and show you just how much you mean to her.  When Cindy Lou first meets anyone she is very reserved. But don’t worry! Within a few days (and with plenty of treats) she warms up to people. After some time with her foster, she has learned to love being petted. She will sit and nudge your hand for head scratches, neck scratches, and back scratches. She also tends to put her chin on your hand if you wiggle your fingers. On top of this cute quirk, she is very gentle and does not bark most of the time. She’s a happy girl once she’s comfortable with her environment. Her tail is always wagging! Finally, she LOVES the car, and will often climb into the car and refuse to come out. Road Trip Time! Tahoe anyone? What can we say… she’s ready to be your co-pilot! In between sleeping, belly rubs, and walks, Cindy Lou is working on some training. She is almost completely house trained and only had a few accidents when she first arrived. Cindy Lou is also crate trained. While she prefers to be out, she will allow her people to guide her in without any fuss. Lastly, Cindy Lou has learned to love her walks, but she does let her curiosity get the better of her. She is quite strong and tends to pull. For this reason, she will need some leash training. Cindy Lou has also established a routine with her foster: “We feed her 3 times at 8AM, 2PM and 8PM . She spends most of her time in her crate sleeping, as we are helping her recover from spaying. We take her outside every 2-3 hours, for the bathroom and to stretch her legs. She needs the bathroom at most 2-3 times a day, even for pee.” Cindy Lou was very friendly with the other dogs. While in the shelter she lived with several large breed dogs and a little gang of small breed dogs who were running the show. She did just fine with all she met. She has briefly met a few children and seemed uninterested in playing with them. That being said, she’s recently been spayed, and her energy level has been on the low side while she recovers. In the future, she may become more energetic and playful with other animals and people. She also just started showing interest in toys! Cindy Lou is ideal for a patient family that will give her plenty of time to come out of her shell, knowing that she will blossom into a gentle, loyal, and affectionate dog who will let them know how special they are to her. She is truly a gem. Cindy Lou is only an option for those who have had a dog of their own as an adult. If there are any children in the home, they need to be over the age of 10.  show less

Dubai

German Shepherd Dog

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $600 Dubai is a 1 1/2 year old German Shepherd mix who weighs 35 lbs. He was one of our rescues from Mexico. This sweetheart is super loving and adores affection and attention. He’s playful and loves to give kisses. A darling little paw boop is his favorite way of saying hi and letting you know he wants some pets. He’s playful and full of happy energy. If you’re looking for an active adventure buddy, Dubai may be your guy! He’s a bundle of fun and, at the same time, learning that he doesn’t have to be responsible for keeping his people and property safe. He’s looking for a confident, experienced adopter who will continue to make him feel secure in the world. Dubai is an absolute sweetheart; he warmed up to his foster in less than a day, then was right by her side and ready to trust. He loves to lick you and jump up to show his affection. Wherever you are, he wants to be there too, though he is getting a bit more independent and showing a willingness to be in rooms other than his people. He likes to sleep next to his person but is happy sleeping on the floor by himself too. He takes time to trust new people, and he seems especially skeptical of older men. Treats definitely help to gain trust! Dubai is intimidated by younger children, so should be in a household with teenagers and above. Dubai absolutely adores other dogs off-leash. In typical puppy fashion, he loves wrestling and chasing and will play for hours. On leash, Dubai needs training to understand that dogs are not a threat. His immediate reaction when encountering a new dog is to raise his hackles, but when he actually meets the dog, he is happy, polite, and playful. His adopter should have experience with leash training. In terms of heeling, he’s great! He’s not a puller. He is working on crate training; he’s done well if his foster mom stayed close or in the building, but when she leaves, he cries. He is very obedient and knows sit, shake, paw, and leave it. He loves to play fetch and 15 minutes of it can expend his energy easily.  In his foster home, Dubai wakes up around 7 am to go to the bathroom right away, then has breakfast. He hangs out with his foster mom while she works, then they go out for a long walk and bathroom in the middle of the day. Lunch is at 12-1 pm. After work, they go for a longer walk, then dinner at 5-6 pm. In the evenings, Dubai enjoys a good play session and hang out before bed at 10 pm. Dubai is an awesome mix of energetic and chill. He likes to do the 'zoomies' where he runs around the apartment in circles about once a day and enjoys going for a walk about 4 times a day. At the same time, he also likes to sleep and chill or hang out on his blanket and play with his toys. He has a chair by the window next to his foster’s mom’s desk so he can sit near her and look out the window; it’s one of his favorite activities. Dubai, like all puppies who are teething, loves to chew! He’ll chew his toys and anything else he can get his paws on, so his new adopter will need to be vigilant. He’s a barker who likes to alert his people to noises and people outside. He will either need guidance to stop this or an adopter who appreciates this protection. Dubai would be a wonderful addition to an active family who is dog savvy and will appreciate Dubai’s sweet and protective nature. He’d be up for any kind of adventure!  https://www.dropbox.com/s/z68w4u49qsd3d0l/IMG_1265.MOV?dl=0 Dubai is seeking a home that has had a dog as an adult and has more than an average dog savviness. If there are children they need to be over the age of 8. show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800.

They have been living in one of our wonderful foster homes and are now ready for adoption. They have been exposed to other cats, dogs and kids. Given a little time to adapt, they could easily join any type of home. Portland is the more confident of the two. The first to check things out. The first to warm up to his humans. He takes the lead. Halsey is equally as sweet but might be a little shyer at first. Both are playful and fun loving. They absolutely love toys and climbing all over their cat tree. They love to lounge and cuddle with you on the couch and sleep with you in bed at night. If you are looking for a bonded pair, they would be a prefect fit. We would like to place them together if possible, but we are prepared to split them up if the individual right homes come along. Either of them would be a great little brother to an existing pet in the home. They have been neutered, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treatment applied and microchipped. Their adoption fee is $150 per kitten. Apply to adopt one or both of these handsome boys today! show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Sheldon and Penny are 5 year old Turkish Van mixes. They are such a unique brother and sister duo. Both kitties sets of eyes were extremely infected when they were rescued. After months of medical treatment to try and save their vision, it just wasn't going to happen. Both of Penny's eyes had to be surgically removed and the right eye of Sheldon's couldn't be saved. So between the two of them they have one functioning eye. Sheldon looks out for Penny in such a sweet way, he makes sure she feels comfortable when she walks from room to room in their foster home, always keeping his one good eye on her! Both kitties are incredibly sweet. Sheldon is very social and vocal. He loves attention from anyone that will give it to him. Penny is affectionate and loving, and the loss of her two eyes hasn't slowed her down one bit. She has acclimated very well to her vision loss and navigates her surroundings wonderfully. They both have great appetites and have perfect litterbox skills. Sheldon loves climbing on his cat tree and surveying his kingdom. Penny loves lounging on the couch with her foster mom curled up in her favorite blanket. Their foster home has two resident cats and they do fine with them. We think an adult home that has no dogs would be a good fit for Sheldon and Penny, unless the dog has prior experience with a blind cat. We would like for them to be adopted together since they are so bonded and rely on each other. We know this may be a tall order, but they deserve a great life and we know their perfect person or family is out there. Perhaps you have experience with blind cats, or you want to adopt kitties that are going to have a harder time finding a home, or maybe you want to just simply give two sweet cats a safe and loving life. Whatever it may be, if you think these sweethearts are for you, apply to adopt them today! They have been spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treatment applied, and microchipped. Their adoption donation is $100 per cat. show less

Our vet says she is only about 10 months old herself. Poor girl had to grow up fast with seven little mouths to feed and take care. She has been a great mom but now its her turn to actually have a life where she is the center of attention and being spoiled rotten like she deserves. She has a quieter type demeanor. Her personality is still developing but her foster home reports she is coming more and more out of her shell everyday. She has even started to play with toys, something she probably has never been able to do in her short life up until now. We think she could join a home with another cat or gentle cat savvy dog. Because she is still learning to trust humans we think an adult only home would be best suited for her. She is very laid back and mellow and we are sure she will make a great companion for someone looking to give her a second chance at life! If that's you, apply to adopt her today.

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $500 Due to his level of under socialization, we are open to a foster to adopt situation for Jughead.  Jughead is a 1 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix who came to us from a hoarding situation where he and his nine siblings were left in a backyard, and thus emerged super under-socialized. In his foster home, he is slowly learning that people can be trusted, and he has benefitted from the presence of another dog in the home. That said, he still needs a lot of work to learn that he is safe with people. He came into his foster home completely terrified but now enjoys being near his foster mom and has proved to be a great work-from-home companion. On occasion, he has even been known to cuddle.  Jughead can be very loyal once he learns to trust. He enjoys laying near his foster mom and doesn't disturb her meetings. He is happy just as long as he has his blankets to lay on and likes it when you are in one place so he doesn't have to move around. He is really great with other dogs and would make a great playmate for a dog that likes to play. He has shown he can improve with patience, sometimes cuddling his foster mom in bed and letting her pet him. We are very positive that with love and patience he will make a perfect pup. This is how his foster mom describes his current schedule:  'First thing he does is get up and go to the bathroom with my dogs. He then goes back to bed for about an hour before he gets up again to eat. He likes to play a bit in the am before he settles back down and takes naps with my dogs. He gets up several times a day to go outside then play a little. He does like having a toy to chew on during the day as well. In the afternoon he is the most active and likes romping around with my dogs and taking walks. He naps in the evening and eats his dinner. When he hears us set our house alarm, he knows it is time for bed and runs in our room and jumps on the bed to go to sleep.' Jughead loves playing with the other two dogs in his foster home and would do best in a home that has other dogs already, thus applicants that have one will be given priority in the interview process.  Jughead is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own as an adult. Dog sitting and family pets do not count. If there are any children in the home they need to be over the age of ten.  show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee. Adoption Fee: $550 Roxy is a 5-year-old Rottie-English Bulldog mix. She is stocky but not a large girl. She was found abandoned in a vineyard, and we agreed to take her in. She is fabulous with people; in fact, her whole life revolves around loving her people! Despite her stocky stature, she is actually fairly athletic. She loves to play.Her fosters have regaled us with fabulous tales of adventures in the yard and the beach: 'One of her favorite games is a running game where I sprint from one end of the yard to the other. To keep the jumping and excitement from being too out-of-control (and jumping on people), I introduced a 'sit' at each endpoint of the yard. After a few laps, on her own she started volunteering a paw too! So the game is now 'run-sit-shake-run-sit-shake.' She gets so amped up but knows that she's not supposed to jump on us, so she often does a flying 360-degree jump before she sits. I'm hoping we can introduce a ball into the game to show her that she can chase a ball, not just Eric and me!' 'Roxy absolutely lost her mind, in the best way possible, when we went to the beach. I've never seen her so energetic and excited. I only wish I could run as fast as she can--I was definitely the weakest link when it came to sprinting down a sand dune together. Eric and I paraglide. So I hung out with her on the ground while Eric was in the air. At first, she had only a passing interest in the paraglider. But when Eric landed and she realized who it was, everything changed. From that point on, she stopped chasing seaweed and started watching Eric. Whenever he landed, she got super excited and ran over to him (again, so much slower than she would have if she didn't have to wait for me on the slow end of the leash--sorry Roxy!). She was happy and tired when it was time to come home. Fun fact: In helping her get some sand out of her paws, we realized she has webbed toes!' Roxy prefers to be Queen of her Castle. She is a dog who wants to live by herself, without other dogs, and just be loved by her people. She doesn't need dog parks or doggy day camp; she is perfectly satisfied at home. Her foster has been working diligently with her on leash-reactivity. She has done well, but her new home will need to continue if they plan to walk her in neighborhoods or other places where dogs frequent. She is not a dog who requires walks. She is just as happy to play in the yard. Roxy is a professional napper. She loves to lounge and hang out inside while her people are working during the day. She is an ideal dog to hang out and just do her own thing while Mom and/or Dad are working during the day and need her to be independent. For the single folks who may like the idea of a dog who would make a stranger pause before coming into the house un-welcomed, our girl is happy to accommodate. Her mere presence will intimidate bad people. Roxy is house trained. She has never had an accident in her foster's home. At night she has a routine. It caught her foster home off guard that she literally knows her bedtime and off she goes each night: 'Maybe the cutest thing is that she has a self-imposed bedtime routine. We're usually in the living room working or watching TV in the evenings. Around 9:45-10:00 pm, she gets up from whatever napping spot she's been in, drinks some water, gets some head scratches from both of us, then walks into her crate. I just about died when I realized she was doing the same thing at the same time every night, checking in with us before going to bed! It's the cutest routine.' Roxy has proven that life with her is amazing. She is ready to join her new home and spread her love! 'Roxy's super smart and has quickly learned to sit for her leash, whether it's taking it on or off. She is also a champion at sit-stay for mealtime, which she scarfs down as soon as we say, 'Ok!'She started offering us her paws, so we've added 'shake' to the mix. She often chooses to greet me in the morning with lots of wiggles and a couple of shakes--one with each paw. In an adorable moment last night, Eric reached out to hold my hand, and as soon as Roxy saw us holding hands, she raised a paw toward my other hand. She gave her other paw to Eric, and there we were, all holding hands in the living room. I know every dog is the best dog in the world, but Roxy is especially the best dog in the world.' https://www.instagram.com/roxy.rocks.out/ Roxy was adopted and returned because she is not good on a leash. She needs a home that is dog experienced and willing to continue to work with her on her leash manners. She does well with with her foster home. Roxy is only an option for those who have had a dog of their own as an adult. If there are children in the home they need to be over the age of 6.  show less

Perhaps you have experience with blind cats, or you want to adopt kitties that are going to have a harder time finding a home, or maybe you want to just simply give two sweet cats a safe and loving life. Whatever it may be, if you think these sweethearts are for you, apply to adopt them today! They have been spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treatment applied, and microchipped. Their adoption donation is $100 per cat. show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $500 Zuko is a 3-year-old Dachshund mix who weighs 12-14lbs. He was a rescue from the shelter where he was found as a stray. Zuko is a velcro boy. He absolutely loves affection and cuddles; he cannot get enough! When Zuko is with a strong handler, he has no issues meeting dogs on leash and greeting them with nothing but tail wags. With a less experienced handler, he can get worked up and overly interested in dogs on leash. It completely depends on who is handling him. He is a mix of playful and a lounger. He will be very energetic when you are energetic, and when you are working, he will just lounge next to you and go to sleep. Zuko is only an option for a home that works from home or is home more often than not. He is not a dog who does well being left alone. He will bark.  Here is a bit about his daily schedule: 'We go for a walk in the morning every day. He does his business once during this time. After we come back, I give him some food. He then mostly sits in the sunlight coming from windows and loves lounging there. He follows me around in the house. Whenever I get up to do anything, he's my little shadow. We again take a walk in the evening and he again does his business. He eats again. He sleeps in his crate at night.' His first few days he was pretty active and wanted to play all day, but once he settled, he learned to relax and enjoy the day. Zuko is working on leash training. He has not had any accidents in his foster homes. Zuko tends to pick one person as his own, and it can take time to welcome other people to his friendship circle. If new people completely ignore him, that's the best way to win him over. Zuko knows sit, come, here and his foster has successfully taught him to 'Give paw' when asked, 'Paw!' Zuko is only an option for those who have had a dog of their own as an adult. If there are children in the home, they need to be teenagers. show less
