About Charlie

12lb Charlie is everything you expect in a Pug, we suspect maybe some dachshund too just to add to the fun. He is all the good stuff, happy, affectionate, loyal, charming, playful and mischievous! Charlie is a good listener and quick to want to please you and do the right thing, once he's told not to do ""well, the wrong thing"" Charlie has mastered, sit, lay-down, roll over and belly scratches! He’s come out of his shell and loves to play. He loves to cuddle, hang out, go for walks, lay in the sun and be with the other pups. He is eager to please his person and is a great eater!! He loves all humans and four legged friends. Charlie will do well in a home with or without dogs. Charlie will dart if given a chance to, so a well protected yard is recommended. Charlie will be getting a dental and neuter on April 8th, so he will be ready to for adoption soon. Fill out an application to meet this charming dude at ....added 4-25-21....Charlie is definitely a flight risk. Adopter must understand that Charlie will slip collar/harness as well as run out the door and slip through a fence. This risk does lesson over time as he gets more comfortable in the home.

Foster reports: 8 yr old Buzz is one of the sweetest dogs I have EVER (and I mean this) EVVVVER been around and I have been around a lot of dogs over the years and fostered many. His love for people he trusts is so sweet and genuine. He now seeks me for petting and lets me rub all over him. Being picked was a big trust issue for him but he is allowing it with less fear to where I can scoop him up easily now. I love feeling his little body relax in my arms, releasing his anxiety and learning to trust human arms again as a secure place.Buzz has A LOT to give someone. He just needs that person that wants to allow him a short amount of time to finish his success story. He does not need very long as long as you’ve got some good food and treats to offer! Once he feels safe, he is so confident and such a joy to have around. He is absolutely precious playing with a toy! Buzz can exist with other dogs with proper introductions but he does not really seek them out for play. He does not care for overly hyper dogs that constantly invade his space. Buzz pays no attention to the cat here, he’s sniffed her a few times, received a hiss once and just went about his day. I would not recommend Buzz for a family with young children as he is blind and can startle easier than a dog with vision. Buzz is healthy, received a dental cleaning and was neutered on 2/9/21 followed by a bilateral eye enucleation 3/31. He is ready to brighten your every day to come.

Happie lost her family, her home and her best canine pal Sam to cancer all in one day and in just 7 weeks from all that, her foster repo... show more

Happie lost her family, her home and her best canine pal Sam to cancer all in one day and in just 7 weeks from all that, her foster reports ""This girl is one of the best dogs that we have ever fostered"". Despite all she lost, she remembered all the basic commands such as sit, go lay down, and shake. She has never had an accident in the house and has never run off. She listens very well and follows all commands promptly without hesitation. Not to mention, she is very photogenic!. Happie was loved so very much by her previous family. You can tell because she has the best demeanor and she’s very loyal. We love her big brown eyes, and we love the way she looks at us with so much love. When our family first got Happie, she was super sad and confused. She was in heat and had a medium sized mammary mass on her left side. We were patient with her; gave her the space she needed and time to heal from her trauma. After a vet visit to get the mass removed and a spay, a healthy diet, and a quiet home, she has blossomed into one of the best dogs we’ve ever had. Some things to take into consideration if you are thinking of adopting Happie. She’s a big girl, weighing in at 81 pounds. She moves very slow and does not care for any type of commotion. She likes her world quiet, with no yappy dogs or fast moving children. She is very slow to warmup to new humans, but once she does, she’s your best friend forever. We recommend no small children, a quiet household, and an easy going/mellow canine companion. show less
