Fred Ginger

Fred and Ginger are a pair who do their best work together. They are 8-year-old siblings who have never been separated, and they do need to stay together. They are a mixture of Bichon Frise and Cavalier King Charles spaniel. Fred weighs about 37 pounds, and Ginger about 25 pounds. They are friendly and appear to be easygoing little furballs.

"Hi, my name is 'Scruffy' (aka Buddy). My name might be a little in transition as there is also a Buddy in my new foster home. It's been an exciting week for me as I've been in a couple of homes over the past several days and I've been quite the little trooper. Mostly I just want to play with toys and stay busy. I like to ride in the car, and I will jump in the car, let you tether me in, and I will sit quietly or look out the window.

"I like taking walks and do well on the leash. Did I mention I like to PLAY? I got to pick out some new toys, and I love to play. There are some dogs in my new foster home, and I like them fine, but I'd really rather play with my people. I like to run and fetch my toys and have you throw them over and over and over.

"I'm not much for cuddling in my foster home just yet, but I definitely like being with my foster mom and dad. They have thrown my toys and feed me good food."

Scruffy's foster home says he is a good, smart boy who's adapting well so far. He is learning the doggie door and adjusting quickly to a new environment. While Scruffy is doing fine with other dogs, he does not seem particularly interested in them. He would do well with someone who's active and wants a furry friend to go places and do things. Scruffy at times acts like he'd like to be the boss, so someone who's good with little dogs would be a good match. He looks like a Yorkie/doxie mix who's going to need a little regular grooming and brushing. He is about 8 years old but is quite the active little boy. He's a cute little guy ready to find his forever home.

Tobee is a 13-year-old poodle mix who weighs 9.5 pounds. He gets along well with cats and other dogs (except werewolves). He is housetrained and very well-mannered in the house. Tobee has a very laid-back personality and would do well in a low-energy household. The above reference to werewolves is related to Tobee’s reaction when watching one of the Twilight movies with his foster mom. He didn’t mind the vampires, but he did not like the the werewolves and barked at them to tell them so. Therefore, SARG will not be able to consider placing Tobee in a home with werewolves!

According to his former owner, Mac is one of the most laid-back animals she has ever seen. He is about 10 years old and weighs about 15 pounds. He is active, loves people, is good with children and other small animals, including cats. However, he does not like any dog that is larger than him. He is a former HABIT dog and is easy-going, cuddly, and sometimes entertaining. After all, how many dogs do you know that can dance? He knows several commands such as "sit," "stay," "dance," and especially "NO." He is house-trained, but he gets nervous in new places so will need to be taken out or walked frequently by new owners. Mac is definitely leash-trained and loves walks. However, he hates going out in the rain and is afraid of snow. He sleeps well at night but sometimes snores, like the part-pug he is. He loves food and will attempt to eat whatever he finds. He also loves to check out small waste cans. Neither is an issue with supervision. His only health issue has been allergies. Mac loves to cuddle and be petted, and will make someone a wonderful 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 children.

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


Roman (aka Little Romeo) loves people and wants to be close. He follows members of his foster family from room to room, stands or sits on their laps, curls up beside them on the couch, or lies in his nearby dog beds. He is a 9-year-old, chocolate, toy Poodle who walks well on a leash, is agile (can climb, jump, run), rarely barks except when excited, is very food-motivated, and loves to sleep under the covers, snuggled up close to his humans. He is house-trained but has had a few accidents, so his new family will need to take him outside consistently. He takes one pill twice a day for an enlarged heart and mild heart murmur. He is thin but eating very well and gaining weight. Sometimes he does not like to be picked up, and we do not believe he would do well with small children. Roman is also not good with cats, but he has lots of love to give to humans.

Gabbie is a 4½-year-old female, possibly a Chihuahua mix. Her foster mom says she is a wiggleworm, loves the doggie door, and is getting along with the other dogs in her foster home. She is more people-oriented than dog-oriented and loves to lap-sit with either her foster mom or dad.

Coffee is a small male Chihuahua mix. He is young and frisky and very friendly.

Buttons is a 9-year-old female Chihuahua mix who weighs almost 13 pounds.

Baxter is a one-to-two-year-old Great Pyrenees, and he will need a home with a tall privacy-fenced yard. He is calm and easy-going. Baxter shows no aggression to other animals. It would be best if he goes to a home with no small children. Baxter seems to have had some obedience training, and his foster family are trying to work with him. Baxter walks well on a lead and is a great dog who deserves a great home.

Murphy is a small, very handsome terrier, around one year old. He is very spunky, full of puppy energy, and loves to play with toys. He likes kids and does well in the home with only 2 accidents. He does like to get into small trash cans, so it's best to either close the door or pick them up. He sleeps in the bed with his foster family or on the couch at night. His foster mom puts him in a crate when she leaves him alone. Murphy will require lots of play time and stimulation. with lots of toys to keep him busy! He loves rope toys. He does like to gnaw on your fingers (a habit which his foster family are trying to break), so he will need more work on stopping that behavior. He has not been tested with another dog yet,

Anyone who meets this adorable pooch,immediately falls in love with her. Introducing Shelly, a 19-pound, 2-year-old sheltie/yorkie -- a shorkie bundle of joy who loves everyone she meets. Shelly gets along well with other dogs and cats although we haven't tested her with children yet. Shelly is so calm and low key, she would probably be fine. She is totally housetrained, but we are not sure about crate-training because her foster mother hasn't needed to use a crate with her. Shelly loves to go on walks and walks well on a leash, but she also just loves to sit on the couch and relax and cuddle with her family. This sweet dog would make a wonderful pet for any kind of family. Please help find her a forever home.

Hi, Dog Lovers! Go on, resist this face if you can! This is Ferris, our latest rescue guy. He is a small terrier mix who is relatively young and really wants to be picked up and held -- he seems like a real "people" dog and to like everybody. He's frisky, happy and active. He is being treated for some skin issues right now, from a bad case of fleas, and he is scheduled to be neutered soon. We don't know much more right now, but we will find out more about his personality and level of training once he is in a foster home.
