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?

Paul Hollywood
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, loving home.

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.
