Bandit is an approximately two-year-old, mixed-breed cutie. We haven't
done a DNA test on him, but we are guessing he has Chihuahua and min pin
with some hound and terrier added for variety. And occasionally, he walks
with that funny bulldog gait. What it all comes down to is 20 pounds of
cuteness. Bandit came to us as a stray last fall, and efforts to find
his family failed. His demeanor gave us the impression that he had not
had much socialization in his young life. However, he came into a
multiple-dog home and learned to get along with others, use the doggie
door, and potty outside in a short time. He also didn't bother anything
in the house. He likes to be near his humans, sit by them on the couch,
or stop by for some petting, but is not a "clingy"-type dog.
He LOVES to go for walks and is not bothered by passersby, bikes, train
whistles, or barking dogs along the way. The foster family has been
working with a trainer, and Bandit has made great strides since his
arrival. We feel he deserves and is now ready for his own forever
family. Bandit probably would not do well with a first-time dog owner,
but should flourish with someone who has had some dog experience. He has
been on some calming medication that has significantly helped him; we
feel he will definitely need to continue that in his new surroundings.
We will provide two training sessions with his trainer, so that his new family
can continue to reinforce the lessons he has learned. He is okay with
cats, and would probably enjoy having another furry brother or sister
his size or slightly larger with a calm demeanor. If you think you might
like to make this bundle of cuteness a part of your family, please
contact us either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone

Elvis is a sweet and loving Chihuahua mix who is approximately 13 years
old. He has a few health issues for which he is taking some medications;
but despite his issues, he is a spry and happy little boy. He loves to
run and play, but he is a cuddle bug too. Elvis is recovering from a
severe skin infection, so he has some patches in his fur where his hair
is growing back. He is already a cutie, but when he gets his coat back
he is going to be even more handsome! Elvis lives in a a foster home
with several other dogs and he gets along with all of them. He appears
to be housetrained, but he does have an occasional accident. Elvis is
looking for a loving forever home and a human companion with a big

Hi, my name is Tina. I'm a toast-brown puggle (pug/beagle), I have
sparkling brown eyes and a cute smile. I weigh 16 pounds and I'm about a
year old. I was nervous and scared of everything when I first came to
SARG, but a lady has been showing me how not to be scared. I was afraid
of riding in a car but now I like to go in the car. I walk nice on the
leash and I like walks. I love to cuddle and give kisses! I have been
going to doggie daycare and I do okay but I'm still a little unsure how
to play with the other dogs. I watch and sometimes try to join in. I'm
just learning how to play with toys. I would love a family to call my

Buffy was adopted from SARG in 2015 and has come back to us because of
her adopters' serious illness. She is a sweet little Chihuahua mix who gets
along with everyone -- including dogs, cats, and kids. She is a wonderful
companion and likes to be held. Buffy weighs 12 pounds and is a senior,
about 10 years old, although you wouldn't believe it to look at her and
see her get around so well. She seems a little bit lost right now, having
had her life turned upside down, but she is pretty laid-back about it all,
and she will be fine when she finds a new family to love.

Willie is a sweet, affectionate bichon/poodle mix (maybe just bichon)
about 2 years old, weighing in at 14 pounds. He is a bit bigger than a
Yorkie or a Chihuahua. He came to us very dirty and disheveled, so much
so that he had to be shaved down in order to remove all of the mats from
his coat. He is housetrained and has learned to "go potty" in
one spot on command. He gets along with women very well and is very
attracted to kids. He is sometimes initially a little nervous around
men, but that can be fixed with a gentle voice, kind pats and treats. He
plays well with other small dogs (but is terrified of big dogs). He
loves to go for walks and thrives on lots of physical contact. He is a

Cindy Lou is a perky and friendly little Shih Tzu gal whose favorite

seems to like all people.

Update 6/27/18: We have received several applications
for Cozette and will be working in the next days to process them and find
the appropriate home for her. Thanks to everyone for your interest in
Cozette. We are certain that there is a great home for her among the
applications that we've received.
Cozette, formerly Angel, was adopted last year
and has come back to SARG to find a new home. The following is
from her original adopters.
Are you looking for the perfect dog? If so read on. We just found out
that my husband is allergic to our perfect Malti-poo and we need to
re-home her. Could you be her perfect fit? Cozette (little thing in
French) is up to date on shots, spayed, about 18 months old and a rarely
found Malti-poo. She is available to the right home. Cozy (for short) is
smart, obedient, and calm (unless someone comes on property that should
not, at which point she will bark like crazy to alert you). Otherwise,
she is quiet and at your feet or on your lap. She is like your favorite
"cozy" blanket. She loves to play with squeaky toys and
tolerates being dressed up and brushed. Cozy especially likes leash
walks and she really enjoys being outside. She thrives on the outdoors.
Cozy is cat-, kid- and dog-tested. She is very social and would probably
prefer to be in a home with lots of friends, human or otherwise. Truly
there is nothing we could say that is out of place with her, Cozy is
just a wonderful addition to our family and we are terribly
broken-hearted to have to re-home her. If you'd like any additional
information or would like to schedule a meet and greet, please complete
an application on the

SARG wants to introduce all dog lovers to Piper the puggle--a
two-year-old, 24-pound, totally adorable mix of beagle and pug. She is
housetrained, crate-trained, perfect on a leash, quiet, and laid-back.
She gets a little nervous around very young children but is fine with
older kids--say over the age of 6. She ignores cats and is great with
calm dogs. She is not much of a chewer. Well, ok--so sometimes she'll
chew on a pencil. But as Mary Poppins would say, "She's practically
perfect in every way." And her life would be totally perfect, if she
could find her forever home. Won't you be the one to give it to her?

Tank is a 7-year-old male Boston terrier mix who is looking for a
forever home. He is a lovable little boy and would do well in a laidback
home. Tank is currently living in a foster home with five other dogs. While
he hasn't displayed any interest in playing with his foster brothers or
sister, he gets along fine with them. Tank is housetrained and he is very
well behaved. His favorite pastime is laying in his person's lap and
being petted. If you are looking for a calm and loving companion, Tank
may be a great fit for your home.

Meet Rudy, a 1½-year-old, 40-pound pointer mix. He is doing an
excellent job of adjusting to his foster home and has become best
friends with the large dogs he is living with currently. He has been to
several events where we've had cats and didn't seem to mind them at
that time. He is turning into a very happy, energetic, playful guy, and
will continue to grow with his forever parents into an even greater
family companion. He is housetrained and has learned some commands: sit,
stay, etc. He loves to be close and give lots of dog kisses. Apply now!

Wow! Our supposed Jack Russell baby has turned out to be something quite
different! Dobby is a female Walker Hound (Walker Coon Hound) about 17
weeks old. She has been spayed, is now 23 pounds and will probably be 50
pounds full-grown, give or take. She is loving (and would like to be a
lap dog), but she is still learning not to be too mouthy. Maybe when she
finishes teething? Otherwise she is quick to learn and already has
several commands mastered. She is almost totally house-trained, no
accidents lately. And she is happily kennel-trained.
