Dogs Available for Adoption
This is Remington or "Remi" as we call this sweet boy, and we mean
sweet boy! He's very affectionate and loves to
kiss and snuggle. He knows his basic commands and is very smart. He's crate-
and bell-trained. Remi will play fetch with a ball or frisbee. If we had a
nickname for him, it would be "Tigger," as he just loves to bounce
around and have a fun time! He's very friendly and doesn't meet a stranger.
Remi is a hound-mix puppy who loves to play with other dogs. An ideal home
for this sweet boy would be a loving family with possibly another furbaby.
He's so very special and his forever family will adore him!

Missy is probably about a year old and has a lot of energy. She needs
a home where she can get plenty of regular exercise, with walks and
preferably a fenced yard. She also could benefit from some obedience
training. She is very sweet and friendly and just full of exuberance.
She was tried in a home with cats, and she showed too much interest in
them, so any placement with cats would require time, patience, and

Poppy is a young female Jack Russell/beagle mix. She's approximately 1½
years old and weighs about 13 pounds. She is a good girl who likes to
snuggle and go for walks and car rides. She is still working on her
house training while she waits in a foster home for her forever family
to find her. We will update her profile as we learn more from her foster

HUNTLEY AND BRINKLEY
Huntley and Brinkley are a couple of small terriers. (Brinkley is the one
with the yellow bow). We're not sure of
the exact breed, but they look a good bit like affenpinschers. We think
they are 5 or 6 years old, and they weigh approximately 12 to 15 pounds.
They are friendly little guys and are bonded with each other, so we would
like to place them together. Their photos were made after they had to
be shaved because they were so badly matted, so it's not easy to say
just how long their fur would naturally be. Huntley's rescuer, who has
turned them over to SARG, says Huntley is a little hunter who loves to
follow a scent. These little fellows will soon be brightening up their
forever home, once we find it for them!

Scout is a 1-year-old Pekachi (Pekingese-Chihuahua mix). He is active,
playful, and loving all in one. He gets along well with other small
dogs. He doesn’t appear to be familiar with cats and seems afraid of
them, but his foster mom has confidence this will improve. He is
working on fine tuning his housetraining skills. He loves to run,
jump and play with his foster dog siblings, and he likes to cuddle
with his foster mom. When his foster mom loves on him, he practically
melts into her. His foster mom has not observed him around children
yet. Scout is hoping to find his forever home.

Bree is a tiny Chihuahua/Dachshund mix, a "chiweenie." She
is housetrained and is getting used to sleeping in a crate at her foster
home. She seems to have a bit of separation anxiety so would not be
best left alone for long periods. She also is a bit protective of
her person, particularly when being held, so we do not think a home
with small children would be appropriate for her. We are still
evaluating her interactions with other pets, although she does
growl at the cat in her foster home if she's sitting in a lap and he
comes near. She's quite happy to sit in her person's lap and be a
great little companion. On the leash, she seems more like a hound ...
she loves to put her nose down and follow a scent. Bree weighs ten
pounds, and the vet thinks she is about 3 or 4 years old.

Sassy, AKA "Little Bit," is one of two senior Chihuahuas whose owner turned them in
because he could no longer care for them. She weighs 8.2 pounds and is
about 11 years old. Her bonded companion, Paco, passed away in January,
2019. She has been a permanent foster for some time, but she has now
been adopted by her foster family!

Bandit is a 3-5 year old Chihuahua and probably miniature pinscher
mix. He weighs about 17 pounds. He is housetrained, does not bother
anything in the house, and loves to go for walks. He is currently in
a foster home with 5 other dogs and is doing just fine. He likes to
play with other dogs and would do well with another dog, but he is
definitely motivated to be with his people. Bandit can have moments
of being anxious, which is not much of a surprise considering his mix.
He would do best in a home with structure, discipline, and plenty of
exercise. We are certain if he were to get more exercise that would
help him be more calm. His foster home is doing the best they can.
They have found that he walks better with his foster dad than he
does with his foster mom, so it would be good to find him a home
where he can have a good amount of interaction with a male. While
he does great in his foster home with other dogs, he gets a bit
concerned when he meets dogs outside the house. Bandit was found
as a stray, so we have no idea of his history, but we are fairly
certain he did not have proper socialization as a youngster. Bandit
is not a dog for young children, as he's not a fan of little ones
getting in his face, but he would do just fine with a teenager and
adults. We think he would do well in a home with another dog or
two where the dogs are calm, so they can show him that the world is
OK. Bandit is a really nice dog who deserves to someone who can give
him the socialization, structure, exercise, and security he deserves,
and they will be richly rewarded with a devoted companion.

Alice is a Chihuahua mix; she weighs about 10 pounds and is
approximately 2 or 3 years old. She is very athletic and loves
to be outside, although she hasn't been walked on a leash yet
by her foster family. At the moment, she is still a special-needs
dog. She is very loving and wants all the strokes and attention
she can get. In return, she is totally devoted. At the same time,
she is timid and fearful. Each new person or circumstance frightens
her and it takes time and consistency to gain her trust. All that
we know about her previous home is that she was taken in by a family
member after her owner died, and she was then turned in to a shelter
because other dogs in the home had attacked her. Alice is house-trained
and loves to go outside. She learned to use the doggie door very
quickly, and her foster mom is working with her on "come."
Although she seems to trust her foster mom, she still sometimes backs
away. Over time, she will probably become more confident, but it will
definitely take time. She rarely lets her foster mom out of her sight
and gives a shriek of joy when she returns to the house, even when she's
only been gone 10-15 minutes. Alice's foster mom likes her and believes
she is totally worth the effort, but she will need a family who will
work patiently to give her confidence and gain her trust.
