Dogs Available for Adoption
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.

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.

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.

Update, March 12, 2021:
Jasper looks so much better than he did
when he first came to us. His coat has grown back beautifully, and
he has lost some weight. He is no longer staying in his foster
home, but at the vet's office, because he was very resistant to
having his daily eye drops put in. However, the vet techs say he
has gotten better, as his eyes have improved,
and they have learned how to do the drops without upsetting him. The
process just takes a minute now. We have also learned that he wants
to be the only pet in his home and would not do well with small
Jasper is absolutely a lap dog! He slept well in the crate with a
nice new dog bed the first couple of nights in his foster home. Now
he sleeps in his foster mom's bed. So far he’s been good with her
daughter. He has another dog bed close to her desk in her office,
so that he can sit near her during the day. He will scratch at her
legs when he wants to sit in her lap. She has built him a makeshift
steps off her one-step back porch to help him get to the ground.
He does have a few bursts of energy where he likes to play with
his small soft toys! He is a little hard of hearing, and his vision
isn’t what it used to be! He is a 13-year-old Shih Tzu. He has dry eye
and requires drops in his eyes daily. He currently
weighs 20 pounds, but he is on a diet to get some weight off of him.
He is doing better on going potty outside, but his new family
will need to continue working with him!!

Happy Tails -- Dogs Adopted or Pending
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.
