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 training.

Happy Tails -- Dogs Adopted or Pending


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 family.

Huntley 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.
