911: Bobby

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: $700 The 911 puppies are 10 week old Labrador x Dutch Shepherd mix puppies who range from 13-19 lbs currently (but they are growing fast)! They are expected to be around 50-60 lbs when fully grown. The 911 puppies are all super affectionate pups who are incredibly silly, but each have their own little quirks that make them unique.  Buckley is the biggest of the litter, but don’t let that fool you! While he may be big, he is an even bigger sweetheart who is a bit more reserved than some of his litter mates. That being said, he enjoys a good wrestle with his siblings! Eddie is the most active of the group. While he may be smaller than his big brother Buckly, he is by no means short of passazz! Next, Bobby is quite the opposite of his two brothers. He is the smallest and sweetest pup of the litter and is a total cuddler. He would much rather be in a lap, than wrestling with his siblings if given the chance. Chimney, with his adventurous nature is the gutsy one of the group! He is very talkative and loves to explore. Finally, the girls of the group are Maddie, May and Hen. Maddie is the leader of the group, and often bests her big brothers in intelligence and skill. She gives off serious girl power vibes! May, just like her namesake, is the embodiment of springtime. She is relaxed and loves the outdoors! Last, but definitely not least is Hen. She is the perfect mixture of sassiness and sweetness, and would make a wonderful companion for just about anyone.   In between napping, snuggling, playing, and eating, these puppies are working on some basic training and have established a routine. All of the puppies are pretty active and go outside to play 3 times a day for at least a half hour to 45 minutes. They can entertain themselves for a while but after a few hours, they want to run around and be active. They can all go up and down stairs and all have gone through the dog door (but some get it better than others). The puppies are on a free feeding schedule and eat puppy kibble in their pen. They have all been held by men and women. They have been around a vacuum, heard fireworks and saw a metal cutter in action. None have been scared by any of it. They love toys, balls, tug o war and tearing up cardboard boxes. Just like their mother, these puppies have been tough as nails!  Furthermore, each of the puppies have their own personalities that we absolutely adore: Buckley is the biggest of the litter. One of the “Brindle boys”, he and his brother Eddie are practically twins. He’s a little more reserved and sometimes likes to just sit and watch. But he can be a rough and tumble active guy. When his fosters open up the puppy pen and everybody else makes a run for the outside, he will sometimes turn and head for the puppy bed. Too cute! If you, like Buckley, are not a morning person, he might just be the pup for you!   Eddie is only slightly smaller than his big brother Buckley. He loves to wrestle and play with toys. He is the most active of the group and last to go down to sleep. He is always up for some tug- o-war. He has just learned to come over and ask for pets and snuggles, then it's back to running and playing. If you would like a pup full of piss and vinegar to keep you active and on your toes, or live a very active life, Eddie is your match!   Bobby is the smallest of the puppies but the sweetest of them. He is a total cuddler and has a gentle heart. He loves to play with his brothers and sisters, but if he gets the chance, he would prefer to sit in your lap and watch the rest wrestle. Think of him more as the referee of playtime, who sometimes falls asleep during the action. This cutie pie is also very affectionate, he loves to give kisses when he can, so get ready for a love attack!  Chimney has the cutest pink hairless belly and loves to get scratches. But more than anything else he is an adventurer. He is the best at pouncing (at nothing) and then taking off running across the lawn. He can also be talkative when he wants you to pay attention to him. He is super playful and is very curious about new things, making him susceptible to occasional acts of cute naughtiness. He just figured out how to climb over the puppy pen as well. Chimney is ideal for a forever home that will take him on all of their wonderful adventures.  Maddie is the leader of the group and an escape artist. She was the first to learn how to climb out of her pen and has taught the other puppies how to use the doggy door. Smart girl! She is curious about everything and is the first to check something out. She will keep her owner on their toes! If you would like an empowered young puppy to join the family, Maddie is the dog for you. She will probably become the CEO of PetSmart when she grows up. May is the lightest in color of the litter and has the softest fur. She likes to sleep spread eagled on her back and will sometimes eat while lying down with her head in the bowl. So it’s fair to say that she is a relaxed girl... She also likes to be outside and is almost always the last to come inside from playtime. If you have a big backyard, she will love you forever! Hen is the perfect mix of sass and sweet. She loves to jump on and wrestle with her big brothers. Then she will come take a break, sit in your lap and give you kisses. She is also a bit mischievous and a toy hog. Her personality is a good combo of all the best dog characteristics, making her the perfect pup for a wide range of homes. We will only consider a home that has had a dog in the last three years. We believe our puppies need the homes with the most experience. This requirement is not met by fostering/pet sitting, roommate's pets, or having a family pet while growing up that remained at home. We will consider households with children who are over the age of 6.         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: $650 Athena is a 2 year old female Belgian Malinois x Dutch Shepherd mix. who weighs around 47 lbs. She recently gave birth to the 911 litter and is now ready to find her forever home! This pretty girl has all the best qualities you could hope for in a pup. She is cuddly, loving, and affectionate, yet also a bit playful and quirky. Just like her namesake, she is quite impressive. We think it’s fair to say that whoever ends up getting to take care of Athena is quite a lucky person!  Athena is great with most people and dogs she meets! In fact, she loves new people so much that she will often try to jump up on new friends. Of course, this is something that training can easily address. Her fosters describe her as a people pleaser who seeks approval from those around her. She is also quite playful, and despite being a doggy mama, loves to show her puppy energy. She often will play with toys and her foster parents. That being said, she is also quite content to lay around the house in the sun with foster friends or snuggle with her people on the couch in the evenings. She loves to get pets and belly scratches on the couch each night while her foster parents relax. Overall, she has a well balanced disposition of both playful and relaxed qualities.   In between cuddling with her fosters and taking care of her puppies, Athena has been doing some basic training. She knows how to use the doggie door in her foster home and goes out during the day on her own to do her business. When she comes to her forever home she should be almost completely potty trained initially, but may need a few days to adjust to a new routine and a new backyard. Furthermore, she is not a nuisance barker or chewer. She’s a good girl overall. Her one area for improvement is her counter surfing tendencies. She does try to sneak a snack if she is given the opportunity, so she might need some help with that habit.  Athena has done well with all the animals she has met in her foster home. While she does like to bark at dogs she sees through the window, she has never shown any discomfort/aggression around animals when interacting with them. She currently lives with two dogs in her foster home, who she loves to sunbathe with during lazy afternoons. And, of course, this girl has had a ton of experience with puppies, as she recently had a litter! She would do very well in a forever home with another friendly pup.  Athena will do great in a wide range of homes because of her versatile personality and disposition. That being said, she would be ideal for a medium-energy level home that will give her a balanced life with time to both romp around, and nap. However, above all else she needs a home that will give her all the attention she deserves and craves. After all, this people pleaser’s mission in life is to find a person to love her unconditionally. If you would like to be that person for a pup, Athena is the dog for you! Athena is only an option for those who have had a dog of their own before. If there are children in the home they need to be over the age of 8.    show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $700 Brody is a 2-year-old purebred Border Collie who weighs 39 lbs. Unfortunately, Brody’s owner became ill and could no longer care for him. Luckily, he came into our rescue and is now ready to find his new home. Once Brody gets to know you, you have a friend for life! He is sweet, affectionate, loyal, smart, and simply a love. He loves playing - catching tennis balls is his favorite - and he also loves cuddling up on the couch. He’s looking for a loving, patient home who loves to play and snuggle and will help him feel more confident in the world.   Once he’s comfortable, Brody is an absolute cuddler. He loves jumping up on the couch next to you and pawing you if you stop petting him. He will jump straight into your lap. That said, he’s not a velcro dog; he’s perfectly fine hanging out on the couch downstairs while you work and is happy to hang out alone. Brody is definitely wary of strangers. He will bark or hide for a while until he feels comfortable. He warms up much faster to women than men.   When it's playtime, Brody is an absolute joy. He's a speed demon chasing the ball around the yard and loves every second of it. He never wants to stop and could go all day; his fosters have to hide the tennis ball from him to stop him from dropping it on their lap when they’re sitting on the couch! He’s incredibly smart and loves to learn.  When he first arrived in his foster home, Brody was frightened and tentative. However, he warmed up to one of the women in the foster family within a few minutes of arriving. He was a little frightened of being inside the house that first night, but after some exploring, he settled into his new home. It took a day or so for him to get comfortable with the men. When he first meets people, especially men, Brody will may hide or bark for about an hour before he warms up. So a new adopter has to be ready to give him this time.  Brody wakes up around 6:45am and goes outside. He has breakfast at 8am, then hangs out around the house for a while with regular trips outside to chase a tennis ball. He likes to hang out on the couch or by his foster’s feet as they work. He gets a long walk after work, followed by dinner at around 6:30 pm and more tennis ball time. Finally, he goes to bed at 10 pm in a room on his own. Brody is great on leash when there aren’t any distractions. He normally doesn’t pull. When other dogs pass by, Brody will pull, so he needs continued training. He can get nervous and bark at other dogs or men running by. He needs a confident handler who can help him feel confident on leash. Brody is completely house trained and not a nuisance digger or chewer. He does bark when strangers come over, but 99% of the time it's only when they come in the house.  Brody has lived with another dog and done very well. He also has lived without a dog so we know he's versatile.  Brody’s fosters report that he’s an absolute treat to have around! They say he’s so much fun and really such an easy dog to take care of. There's nothing like the look of joy in his eyes when you bring out the tennis ball launcher and he starts bounding out toward the yard in anticipation.  Brody's new home will need to have had a dog as an adult. We will specifically look for an owner that understands herding breeds and their activity level needs. If there are children they need to be over the age of 10-12 and be dog savvy (having owned dogs their whole life, etc). show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $650 Excaliber is a 12-13 week old Shepherd-ACD mix who weighs under 15lbs. He is currently being fostered with her brother, Harrahs. Both puppies were rescued from Mexico, where we work with a fabulous organization that rescues the abandoned, abused, and neglected who are often discarded. Our wonderful partners step in, save them, and we work together to find them the best forever homes. Excalibur has been in the US for the past 6 weeks. We will not be placing Harrahs and Excalibur together. We do not place siblings in forever homes together.  Harrahs and Excalibur start their day by being carried from their crate to the backyard (to insure no accidents on the way). They have a morning wrestle session followed by breakfast, another trip to the yard, and then nap time. Currently, they are being crated every two hours on and off all day, as they are still young and need lots of naps. After dinner, it’s lounge time. They love to snuggle on the couch with their fosters while they watch TV. After a serious cuddle session, the puppies head back to the crate for the night. They sleep through the night and rarely complain about being in the crate. Both Harrahs and Excalibur are great at sitting when it's meal or treat time. Housebreaking is mostly about timing, and both do much better when they are on a consistent schedule. They love to soak up the sun on the porch and find adventures on the yard. Both puppies are super loving and playful. That said, they are puppies and therefore are still learning to be gentle with humans, young and old. They are perfectly fine and welcoming to visitors. The resident older dogs have to put them in their place a lot, and so they are really starting to understand boundaries and nipping inhibition. They understand no, and most of the time stop when told to do so. They eat meals really fast! Excalibur is the sensitive one. He loves being near his people and heads straight towards his fosters when playtime makes him sleepy. He’s a bit dramatic as well if he bonks into something; he will cry for a few minutes and needs to be consoled. We will only consider a home that has had a dog in the last three years. We believe our puppies need the homes with the most experience. This requirement is not met by fostering/petsitting, living with roommate's pets or having a family pet while growing up that remained at home.

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Iridessa is a 5 month old Boxer x Dutch Shepherd Mix. She was a rescue from a shelter where she was found as a stray. She weighs 41 lbs and will likely be 60-75 lbs full grown. She is a big, goofy, smartie pants! She is so good motivated and very eager to please. She picks up on things so quickly. She loves to give kisses and soaks up all the attention she can get. Her first reaction to seeing new people is to wiggle her whole body in excitement and prepare for lots of pets and love.  She currently is waking up 2-4 times during the night, sometimes from boredom and sometimes because she needs a potty break. Then she officially wakes up around 7 am and immediately goes outside to relieve herself and play in the yard with her big foster sister. She is then at work with her foster mommy from 9-4 give or take. She goes on potty walks 4 times while she’s there. She gets dinner at around 6-7 and is in her crate for the night at about 11. This girl wants to be busy all the time! She is really to join an adventurous family and go on all the amazing hikes and runs with her new pawrents. She plays/wrestles with her foster sister 4-6 hours a day. The little dogs find her to be too much for them at times, but the big lab in the home is all about it. When she’s not romping with her foster sister and having a blast playing she is snuggling with her foster mom or chewing on her favorite chews like bully sticks & no-hides. She also absolutely loves belly rubs! She LOVES water! Get a kiddie pool and she will be head over heels. She will be a total beach dog. She know sit and is working on down, shake, go to bed, kennel, and off. She walks well on leash when there are no distractions (dogs, squirrels, etc) and loves going on walks. She wants to say hi to all the people and sniff all the flowers and plants. She is working on crate training and sleeps majority of the night. She is working on potty training but will need to continue that in her forever home. She is very interested in what her people are doing and loves to be involved. Because she is so big and has so much energy still, kids can be overwhelmed by her energy. She would be best with teens and adults. She loves to play with toys, especially ones that squeak! But, she’s still learning that sharing is caring with other dogs. She is continuing to learn what is food and what isn’t, sticks for example are still food in her opinion. She is a lover and wants to snuggle and be with you. She loves chews like no-hides and pig ears. She is currently eating out of a puzzle feeder bowl so she doesn’t scarf down her food. When it comes to dogs she needs a proper introduction before meeting and playing off leash. Her foster mom is working very hard with her and she is making strides and tons of progress. She needs a person who is willing to put in the work for this amazing girl to become the best girl she can be! Iridessa is only an option for a home that has had a dog of their own recently. If there are kids in the home they need to be teenagers and over.   show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $650 Lola is a 4-5 month old Boxer mix. She will be in the 40-50lbs range when full grown. She was a rescue from Mexico, where we work with a fabulous organization that rescues the abandoned, abused, and neglected who are often discarded. Our wonderful partners step in, save them, and we work together to find them the best homes. This curious, energetic explorer loves the sun, the great outdoors, and snuggling. Could you ask for anything more? This darling could eventually make a great hiking companion. Once she’s given a little time to come out of her shell, Lola is a happy, loyal puppy! Lola is a wonderful mix of energetic puppy energy and a big napper. She likes fetch, but really loves playing tug of war with you with a stuffed animal. Lola loves being outdoors and can spend all day sunbathing in the yard and running around sniffing sticks and plants. When Lola first arrived in her foster home, she was very shy. She ducked away from her fosters and did not want to play or eat much. Within the next day, however, she became much more cuddly and affectionate. She loves to be next to her people but won't whine too much when they need to close the door and she is in a different room. She likes to sleep on your feet (she’s an excellent foot-warmer) when you're working. She is now very energetic and playful!  'Lola usually wakes us up with around 7:30 am. She goes out into the yard for a quick break, then heads back inside for another hour of sleep. After this, Lola gets breakfast and has another session outside. She runs back inside for spirited playtime; she loves fetch and tug-of-war. At noon, Lola goes for a walk; she loves running around on the grass field and playing with sticks and leaves. She usually naps at least two times throughout the day and then is ready to play again. She eats a lot throughout the day (around 3 cups) so her foster family makes sure to refill the bowl every time it empties. Just before bedtime, around midnight, she has one more trip outside, then sleeps through the night.' Lola is now housetrained. When she needs to go, she'll sit next to the yard door and bark or whine to let you know she wants out. Now that she's becoming more confident, she's starting to go on walks and not just in the backyard. She will need continued leash training, as she is curious and therefore likes to pull. On walks (she has 2-3 a day), she is shy around other dogs generally, but if they are gentle, she is very curious and likes to sniff them!  Lola is currently losing her puppy teeth, so she likes to chew on a lot of things: sticks, cardboard, toys, and sometimes she nibbles on hands if you are playing with her. Lola does dig a lot in the yard, and generally gets herself in trouble in the garden, so she will need continued training to curb this behavior. She doesn't bark very often, only if you are playing with her.  Lola is a super communicative dog in the best way possible! When she settles into sleep, she makes little grunting noises, and if you pet her when she sleeps, she'll give you a drawn-out grunt. Also, if she wants to go out and starts whining, and you talk back, she'll have a 'conversation' with you. Lola is super cute, affectionate, and playful! She also knows how to sit and lay down and is super food-motivated, which makes training easier! Lola’s ideal home is an active one who can’t wait to play, train, and snuggle with her! We will only consider a home that has had a dog in the last three years. This does not include family pets that remained at home when kids moved out or petsitting/fostering or a roommate's pet. We believe that the youngest puppies need the most experienced homes and those are folks who have successfully raised dogs. If there are children they need to be over the age of 8. show less

She may just be the calm, adorable, lazy morning companion you’ve been searching for.  Magpie will usually sleep in as long you want! Some mornings, her foster wakes her up around 7:30 am; other mornings, Magpie is happy to sleep until 10 am! She is a lazy girl who values lots of beauty sleep. If it were up to her, she would just nap next to her foster parent all day. She has started going for short walks once or twice a day to get her used to it, but she would definitely rather stay home.  Without a doubt, Magpie’s favorite times of the day are breakfast and dinner. Nothing gets her tail wagging like a good meal. She is such a sweetheart with people. She is on the nervous side but always wants to greet people. Once you give her a few pets, or better yet some treats, she will happily be your friend. Food is definitely the way into this girl's heart. She loves to be with her person and picks one person to follow around. She can always be found in whatever comfy spot is closest to her foster parent. When people come over, she wants to be part of it. However, she is not at all the kind of dog who is all over guests. She says a very calm hello and then settles down nearby. She loves a good scratch and a belly rub but is not demanding or needy. Slowly Magpie is revealing her goofy side, whether she is happily rolling on her back or doing the rare zoomie around the house. It seems like more of this will show up with time. She has only barked a few times, although she is a big talker, especially when she is stressed. She whines and grumbles to try and communicate. She would occasionally play with toys with her puppies, but since they left, she hasn't shown interest. It’s definitely possible she might learn at some point as she gains confidence in herself. She would wrestle and chase her pups gently, so with a dog she knows and feels safe with she might learn to play.   Magpie has been working on getting comfortable on a leash and out in the world. She started off extremely scared of her leash and would run and hide in her bed shaking. She still doesn’t love it, but she has made very quick progress and no longer panics. She is pretty happy walking around the cul-de-sac where she feels safe and is even starting to enjoy it. Once she goes past her block, things are a little scarier, but she is an absolute trooper and is quickly gaining confidence. She gets very startled by trucks, bikes, leaf blowers - anything that has quick movement or makes loud noises. Treats throughout the walk help. She is starting to stop and sniff at bushes, with patience and more practice, it’s likely she will soon learn to enjoy being out and about. She listens extremely well.  Magpie can get stressed when she sees dogs on walks, so she will need a confident, calm person who will be a strong role model and teach her that other dogs are nothing to fear. She listens well, so it is easy to get her to pay attention to you and not the dogs.  Magpie is completely house trained and lets herself out or scratches at the door. She is very clever and learns quickly. She is comfortable going in a crate but hasn’t really spent much time in one yet. She has been left alone with access to the whole house for up to four hours; she will cry a little at first, then goes to sleep on her bed.  Magpie is only an option for those who have had a dog of their own before. If there are children in the home 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: $650 Mandalay Bay, affectionately called Mandy, is a 13 week old Shepherd mix puppy who weighs approximately 15lbs. Mandy was a rescue from Mexico. We work with a fabulous organization that rescues the abandoned, abused, and neglected, who are often discarded. Our wonderful partners step in and save them, and we work together to find them the best homes. Mandy has been in the US for the past 3 weeks. While this cutie pie may be a bit shy right now, Mandy is a resilient girl who is ready to discover just how wonderful the world can be. She shows promising signs of being affectionate, playful, and incredibly sweet; she just needs the right person to improve her confidence and show her what it feels like to be loved unconditionally. If you want to be that person for Mandy, she is the pup for you! When Mandy initially meets people, she is typically very shy. In fact, she stayed in her crate for the first few hours with her foster family. She is generally very sensitive to loud noises and sudden movements. But don’t worry, while Mandy will take her time to open up, it will happen eventually if you are patient and trusting. Once trust is established, her personality blossoms. She loves pets from those she trusts and is a velcro dog to those she connects most with in the home. She is also quite playful and LOVES her toys. Her favorite part of the day is playing with her balls and toys in the backyard. She shows a lot of potential for being an outdoorsy dog that can join her people on hikes once she gains confidence. She also shows so much potential for having a vibrant personality; she just needs someone to help her overcome her fears. In between pets and following her foster people around, Mandy is working on some basic training. She is working primarily on house training because she tends to have accidents. She is working with potty pads currently and is establishing a schedule. Her forever family will need to continue her training and solidify her skills. Similarly, she does display a lot of typical puppy behaviors. She does chew but is very easily redirected to chew toys. She will benefit from a home with another confident adult dog to show her the ropes and an experienced dog owner. Mandy has also established a daily routine with her foster: “We are trying to establish a routine in the morning between 7 AM through 8 AM as Mandy's time to go the bathroom. We put her in her puppy pen, where she uses the potty pads. (Typically she does this only 3 times - Morning 7-8 am, afternoon 12-1 PM and evening 8-9 pm). 9 AM-10 AM is when we feed her food. Afternoon we let her play outside her pen. Mandy sleeps in her puppy pen through the night.” Mandy is dog-friendly and lived in Mexico with other dogs. It is with other dogs that she finds confidence the most. Therefore that will be a priority when placing her. Mandy is only an option for those who have had a dog in the last three years, and priority will be given to those who currently have a confident dog. If there are children in the household, they need to be over the age of 10. show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Margo is as sweet as they come. Exceptionally affectionate. Easygoing. Engaging. Purring machine. The list goes on and on. She follows her foster mom all over the house just so she can keep tabs on her. She also likes to be held in your arms like a baby. The vet says she is about 2 years old and in great health. She does have one cloudy eye that we think was damaged by someone not being kind to her. We have decided to leave the eye in place as its not bothering her and she seems to have some vision left in it.  She has been fostered with other kitties since coming into our rescue but seems to be selective as to which kitties she likes, so we think she would do best as the only kitty in the home or with a mellow male cat, as that seems to be the type of kitty she prefers to hang with. We have not had her around dogs yet but feel because of her temperament she would do fine with a cat savvy dog. All Margo needs is a chance at a great life with a home that will adore her. If you would love to welcome a lovely kitty into your life, apply to adopt Margo today! She has been spayed, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treatment applied and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $100. show less

She was an excellent mommy, but now it is her turn to find a forever home of her own. She is the most social and loveable cat. She likes to be wherever you are. Her foster home reports she loves to hang out on her cat tree during the day but loves to sleep with you in bed at night. She is a cuddler and snuggler. She can also be vocal at times but its not over the top. She mostly just meows to get your attention for some extra love. She has been in two different foster homes since coming into our rescue, one with other cats and one with no other pets in the home. She seems to prefer being the one and only kitty in the house. She might do well with a cat savvy dog but we think she will do better as the only cat in the home. She is all about her humans. She has such a beautiful temperament. It will take her not more that one day to settle in at her new home. Both foster homes reported she walked right in and acted like she had lived there her whole life. She is confident, smart and so so so sweet. If you think Piper might be your girl, apply to adopt her today! She has been spayed, vaccinated, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, dewormed, flea treatment applied and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $100. show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $650 Slug is a 5-year-old Dachshund mix who weighs approximately 24lbs. Slug was an owner surrender, due to a mismatch in energy. This adorable lowrider is ready to bring tons of play and fun into your life! Looking for a running partner? A hiking companion? An ultimate frisbee or catch buddy? Slug’s your guy! Unlike his namesake, this pup is full of energy and always ready to play.  Slug is a bundle of playful energy. He’s always ready for an active adventure, and he’s well trained too! When he first arrived in his foster home, Slug was a little nervous, which manifested as some stomach issues. However, he was happy and settled by day two. He is very comfortable in his crate and doesn’t whine or bark. Slug loves to cuddle and gets excited seeing new people (though sometimes too excited). He is a velcro dog but will also stay in the crate.  In his foster home, Slug goes for a couple of miles of walk in the morning between 7:30am-8:00am, and he has his breakfast at around 8:30am. After that, he is busy with his toys, and then he goes for a walk again at around 12pm, 5pm, and 9 pm. Each of these walks is around 30 mins. Also, Slug likes to play fetch in the evening. If his family has a yard then it won't necessarily be needed to go on all of these walks.  Slug is learning to walk on a leash, as right now he pulls. The little guy just wants to run! His new person should be excited to teach Slug leash skills and, once they do, they will be rewarded with a pup who will make an excellent running companion! A no-pull harness or Halti is in his future to help his new people. Slug is crate and housetrained. He once had an accident because a number of people came over to visit, and he got super excited. Otherwise, he has been perfect! Slug is not a nuisance chewer, digger, or barker. He will bark, however, if someone walks past or visits the house. Slug can be too energetic for other dogs at times, so he needs help being taught doggy manners. Slug is looking for an active forever home who is excited to put in the time and effort to leash train him, play with him, and who wants an energetic pup to bring more fun into their lives! Slug is only an option for an experienced home that has had a dog in the last 5 years or so. If there are kids they need to be over the age of 10. show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $650 Velma is a 5-month-old Basenji-Shepherd mix puppy. She will be in the 30-40 lbs range when fully grown. She was originally from Mexico, where we work with a group that rescues the abandoned and neglected. She has been here for 2 ½ months and is ready to go to her new home. She is currently living with other dogs and gets along well with them. She also has lived by herself and has been happy as well. She has a blast playing with other dogs so it’s a bonus if her new home has a dog that is playful and wants to engage her. She is full of life and energy: super sweet and loving, then full of puppy mischief. Her foster calls her a Sour Patch kid. She has this sweet and then sour side when she is full-on puppy mode.   Routine: “A typical routine for Velma is she wakes up between 7-8 am (or whenever her foster gets up!) She usually lets out a yawn with a squeal- it's actually pretty cute....to let me know she is awake and ready to go to the bathroom! Sometimes if it's early...I will bring her back in bed with me and she will go back to bed! Once we are up, she gets fed, (she will eat gradually sometimes or pick at her breakfast) but will usually finish it by 10 or so. Loves to have playtime for a few hours- LOVES her toys! Sometimes she will go in her crate and treat it like a toy box..and bring out all of her toys 1 by 1 to play with. It's adorable. For the most part- she just follows me around, and as long as she has a toy or a bone, she is pretty occupied. She takes about 2-3 naps a day, and is fine to be left alone! She eats dinner around 6 or so, we play with her some more until it's ready for bed.” Velma has a birth defect in one eye. It just didn’t grow like her other eye. It’s cosmetic. There’s nothing that can or should be done about it. She doesn’t know any different. She’s just full of life and can’t wait to join her family in new adventures! She is definitely a big GREETER. She LOVES to greet her humans with tail wags, jumps, licks, when she hasn't seen you in a while or right in the morning after a night's sleep, she’s all full of tail wags. She always wants to be around or near her people. She is more of a velcro dog and follows her foster from room to room- but she will wander off into the backyard on her own. If her foster will leave the door open for her then she just plays outside and enjoys herself. She LOVES to play- especially tug of war. She loves squeaky toys the most. She will rip them to shreds! She’s a puppy and she’s mouthy. She’s what we call a little “landshark”. Her teeth are sharp and little and she gets excited and she grabs everything with her mouth – just like any good puppy.  Velma had a few accidents when she first arrived. Her foster mom put her on a schedule, and within a short amount of time, she was house trained. She hasn’t had accidents for well over a month. She was initially put outside hourly to get used to going outside. Then she was put on a schedule and has adjusted well. She is definitely a chewer, so she needs to have something appropriate to chew on at all times. If she is caught chewing on anything she shouldn’t, her foster mom sternly says, “No!” and Velma stops. She does dig on occasion, so if she’s put outside, let her take her toys so she has something to do. Otherwise, she will entertain herself, and it may not be the way you want her to! She hasn’t proven to be a barker. She occasionally barks when she’s playing but doesn’t bark at people. She has barked in her crate. We will only consider a home that has had a dog in the last three years. This does not include family pets that remained at home when kids moved out, or petsitting/fostering or a roommate's pet. We believe that the youngest puppies need the most experienced homes, and those are folks who have successfully raised dogs. If there are children in the household, they need to be over the age of 8. show less
