About Marquis

This dog is NOT good with other animals, not safe with children under twelve, and will require a home visit prior to adoption.

Marquis is beautiful and exceptionally athletic, easily trained on agility course.  She loves to play "zoomies" and knows plenty of tricks.  An Easy-Walk harness provides her handler with greater control on leash.  She is able to walk past other dogs without lunging or barking; reinforcing this desirable behavior should be a priority in her new home.  She can easily open doors with lever type handles and escape.  Marquis is sensitive to cold and needs a sweater or coat for outdoor activities in winter.  She entertains herself by chewing bones and squeakies, but also loves to cuddle with her person on the couch or in bed.  She is terrified of thunderstorms and requires medication for her safety.  Our dog care staff think she is a tremendous amount of fun.

An ideal home for Marquis would offer plenty of time for exercise, consistent reinforcement for positive behaviors, and have a zero-to-low instance of small children as visitors.  Her new owner must be committed to maintaining Marquis as the only pet in the household.

Pet's Special Needs
I really, really don't like being on my own and suffer from a lot of separation anxiety, so I would do best with a family that has someone around during the day to be with me. I'm super clever but also quite needy that way, although when we're together, I don't mind just following you around. I tend to cling to one specific person out of a group especially and can get very protective of them.

 Hello, my name is Henry Hudson, but you can call me “Henry”. I am an older boy, the ladies here think I’m about 13 years old. I first came here with my sister Zoe after my owner died and I was left outdoors. I got rescued and brought to the stray holding facility and finally here to the SPCA to find me a forever home. Because of my age, I, of course, have my fair share of ailments and disabilities. I struggle with diabetes and keeping my glucose level in the right spot. I eat a more expensive low carb low calorie, high protein diet; and get twice daily insulin. I don’t mind the shot, especially if I get some food with it! I also have an ache in my back legs, what did I tell you about those darn aches and pains that come with old age! I am a very sweet boy and I promise I will love you for the rest of my life. I have never met anyone I haven’t liked, except maybe a few cats. As I mentioned before, I lived with a few cats, but since then, they have started to annoy me. As long as I have my space and I’m able to be left to cuddle and sleep, the world will hold together. I have not been tested with dogs, but judging by my personality, I don’t think I’d mind them! I enjoy riding around on people’s shoulders, they are my leg up in this world. I’ve had a very hard life, I just need someone to make the commitment and take me home to spend the rest of my days. If you have any questions about me or my special needs, please don’t hesitate to ask these nice ladies at the shelter, they just want the best for me too. show less

Jemma is an old fashioned dog.  What does that mean?  Well, back when some of us were kids, people had dogs to guard the house.  These were dogs that barked their heads off whenever someone came to the house.  They got put in the backyard when visitors came, and we were told to leave them alone so they wouldn't bite us.  We listened.  These were fine dogs who were good with their family.  Nobody dressed them up in tutus or put them in strollers or gave them birthday parties with their doggie friends in a gazebo.  Today, these dogs would be called reactive or aggressive and they are really hard to adopt out.  Jemma has bitten strangers but she has never offered to bite familiar handlers.  In situations where any dog might bite (such as being accidentally fallen on, trying to trim her toenails) Jemma has kept her cool. She will be a terrifically loyal friend and a good dog if you keep her at home and keep strangers away from her. To make Jemma into a different dog is going to take a lot of time, patience, and commitment but is theoretically possible.  Jemma been evaluated by 3 trainers and has a training plan.  She learns quickly and trusts her handler.  She has gotten to know various new staff at the SPCA without issues.  We love Jemma just the way she is, and hope someone else out there can appreciate her too. Jemma has specific adoption requirements.  For more information, please call and speak with the Animal Care Manager. Many times folks will fall in love at first sight with a dog and feel sure that they can work through behavior issues.  We wish that was enough for a happy-ever-after story.  Our advice when thinking about adopting a dog with challenging behaviors is to consider how much you would need to alter your lifestyle to accommodate the dog's needs.  If significant behavior change is required on YOUR part, that is already a big barrier to forming a successful relationship with a new dog.  Compatability is key. show less
