Dogs Available for Adoption
Except for the slightly grey muzzle, it's easy to
mistake 20-pound, active Riley for a pup. But Riley
is an eleven-years-young, incredibly adorable, sweet.
lively senior who has many more years of life to give
to some lucky adopter. He is affectionate, good with
dogs, cats, children, calm, and not a barker. Riley
loves to go on walks but also to relax on the sofa
next to his person. His tail never stops wagging. And
those big brown eyes and huge ears make him even more
irresistible. Riley's former owner was unable to take
her beloved dog into the nursing home with her. Won't
you please give this wonderful dog his new forever home?

Our Paul Hollywood isn't much of a baker, but he
is a wonderful couch potato and snuggler. His
favorite thing is belly rubs. Paul is about 5
years old and weighs just under 27 pounds. He
loves his foster companion dog Rory, and he
would like to have a home with another friendly
dog for company. He is housetrained and likes
short walks, but he is soon ready to head
back to the couch for some rest. Even so, he
has a tendency to dart out the gate when it opens
and has to be watched carefully in that situation.
He also likes to run for the door when it opens,
so for his safety he needs to have a fenced yard
to keep him from dashing out into the street.
His foster family are working to train him to
wait for permission. Paul is usually very
laid-back, but he does get excited meeting someone
new and could sometimes be a bit too exuberant for
a small toddler.

Thumper is a friendly male Jack Russell/beagle mix. He
is 5 years old and weighs around 25 pounds. He is active
and happy to be in a new foster home with a very playful
foster pal, Chester. Thumper mastered the doggie door in
his foster home after just a day or two, and he is
housetrained. Thumper likes to ride in the car; he would
be happy in a moderately active home and would be a good
hiking or jogging companion. A fenced yard would be best,
where he can run and play, maybe with a doggie playmate.
He is people-oriented, and we believe he would be good
with older children, but possibly too active for toddlers.

Happy Tails -- Dogs Adopted or Pending
How could anyone resist those liquid brown, soulful eyes
of Mac, a 35-pound, 6-year-old mix of hound, terrier, Lab,
and goodness knows what else--in other words, your basic
sweet-tempered mutt. He is housetrained, doesn't shed, is
great with other dogs, and ignores cats, but is a little
skittish around young children. So he would probably do
better in a house with older kids or adults. Mac is calm,
walks well on a leash, and is not much of a barker, although
he does emit a kind of adorable hound yelp when he is excited
to see someone. Mac also loves to play and would make a
wonderful playmate for another dog. If you are interested in
adopting this delightful furry companion, please contact
SARG for more information.

Rufus is a 10-year-old male Pomeranian mix. He is
friendly and seems to like lap-sitting and having
human attention. He came from an elderly owner who
passed away, and we believe he would do best in a
home without small children or other dogs. Rufus
is small, just under 17 pounds, even though
his fluffy coat makes him appear larger. We think
he will make an excellent cuddle-buddy and companion.
Update Nov. 15, 2021
Rufus is available again, as none of the applications
we received has worked out for him.

Sheamus is a senior terrier mix who came into SARG to a foster home
and never left. He has been adopted by his foster family, who know
a good thing when they see it!

Meet Chester, a 2½-year-old Boston terrier. He is
a lovely brindle with white socks. He does well with the other
dogs in his foster home. He has learned to use a doggie
door and, although he walks pretty well on the leash, his
foster mom believes that, as a young dog, he needs the
freedom to run in a fenced yard. Chester
definitely wants to play and will chase a ball or other
toy and also enjoys a good game of tug. He would probably be
a bit much for young children but might be good with older,
respectful kids. He has good energy and would make a great
hiking or jogging companion. He would also do well with
another dog his size or larger who was interested in
playing. Chester is a pleasant chap who will make
a great companion.

Maggie is a 2-year-old papillon and Dachshund mix. She gets
along well with people and with other dogs and cats and is
housetrained and well-behaved. She has been passed from
one person to another a lot and needs and deserves a stable,

Are you one of those people who are suckers for a dog
with an adorable underbite? That's just one of the many
things that make Lucy irresistible. She seems quiet and
even-tempered, and does not appear to have a problem
with other dogs. She is a terrier mix, scruffy like
Benji -- she looks like a little teddy bear. She has
the silver hair color typical of Yorkies... but the
similarity ends there. She weighs about 25 pounds,
with a stocky body, and her hair is a bit on the wiry
side. Maybe because of her
silver hair, she looks older than her 4 years. She was
given up by her owner, who was unable to continue caring
for her. We believe she will be a sweet and loving
companion for some lucky family.

Beaker is looking for a new best friend and hiking buddy!
This guy would like nothing better than to spend his days
with someone who likes walks as much as he does, and of
course lots of cuddling afterwards. He is a collie/Aussie
mix who is incredibly smart and has picked up on new words,
polite leash skills, and training at an impressive speed!
He has also done great with the resident dog in his foster
home. Beaker weighs 45 pounds and is about 1½ years old.
His foster family also report that he is housetrained.
We think Beaker will do best in a home without cats. His foster
mom says he has had a chance to interact with her niece, who is
5 years old and still has issues with putting her face too
close to dogs' faces, etc., and he did great with her. She
believes he would be good with kids of any age, as he is
actually pretty mellow at home, despite having a lot of
energy for walks. He has such a funny little personality;
his foster family have grown to love him very quickly, and
we think you will too!

Bobby is a pug mix who weighs almost 20 pounds and is between
six and seven years old. He is very timid and needs patience
and love to give him confidence and help him overcome his fear.
He has heartworms and will be undergoing treatment for them.
SARG will be taking care of his treatment to get him healthy
again, but what he really needs is a quiet, loving home where
he can recuperate during his heartworm treatment, which occurs
over a period of a few months and requires that he remain quiet
and not exert himself.

Buddy has had a few names, including Pepe and Taco, but we think
Buddy is going to stick. He is a 7-year-old male Chihuahua mix.
He is very small,
weighing 10 pounds, and is house-trained. He likes to lap-sit
and may have some separation anxiety.
His foster family says he's a door-dasher, (No, he doesn't deliver food,
just makes a break for it when the door opens!) so a situation
where he can't dash out into the street is essential.
