Monkey was a lost little soul rescued from the
side of a busy highway near a thickly-wooded area where he had
evidently been living, or trying to live, anyway. He
came to us a total matted mess, so matted in fact that we weren't
sure if he was a boy or a girl, or even what breed he was until we
were able to get him out of his cocoon. What we found
inside is an adorable little boy thought to be a Shih Tzu, with
lipid brown eyes and a calm sweetness about him that is undeniable.
He's NOT that old, but he doesn't seem to know how to play. He
much prefers to sit quietly and watch the action without getting all
hot and bothered! Monkey claimed that as his name when he
responded so strongly to a comment made when he was being shaved
down that his face looked like a little monkey's. At which
point, the little thing did a couple of whirls around and looked up
at us expectedly, like, "HOW did you know my name??" So,
we tested him again...calling him all sorts of other name, but when
we threw in "Monkey," the same response came from this precious
little boy!! So, "Monkey" became his name, and he likes it
just fine.... only LATER did we discover that bananas are a favorite
treat of his! Monkey is fully vaccinated,
neutered, housetrained, and has a brand new beautiful coat,
now. He's NOT a dog for an active household; preferring peace and
quiet as a way to fill his day. He gets along fine with other
dogs, and he can get frisky, but it doesn't last long. He's
quite the distinguished gentleman, and expects to be treated that
way. If you think your home is a good match for this darling
fellow, please apply for Monkey today!
Monkey with his new loving family!
this cutie is " Not 'yo " ordinary kinda
guy, he wears the name, "Nacho!" This
handsome fellow has been fully vaccinated,
neutered, and finished his heartworm
treatment in May. The foster mom has this
to say about him: "I really canít say
enough good things about this handsome boy
Iíve been fostering for the last 6 months.
Heís a sweet, three-year-old Pomeranian mix,
weighing about 18 lbs and he is house
trained. He gets along great with my 3
other dogs (from a large Dobie mix to a
16-year-old Jack Russell) and is perfect
with kids. Nacho has had limited
interactions with cats, but showed no issues
at all. He also loves treats and ice! This
cutie is patient for haircuts and baths,
rides great in the car, and is an excellent
cuddler... In short, Nacho is just a total
sweetheart." He loves human
interaction/company the most, and we believe
a best fit will be with someone who is
retired or works from home. Nacho truly is
an exceptional pup and will prove to be a
great new family member for years to come!!
Nacho is quite pleased to be a part of
such a lovely family!
is a Smooth-coated Border Collie who is about a year of age and weighs
in around 35 pounds. She gets along great with other dogs and with
children. She hasn't had any experience with cats, so we don't know how
she would be; however, she is so gentle and sweet, I can't picture her
being anything other than curious about a cat. She and another slightly
larger dog in the foster home have such fun tumbling and playing
together. Oreo is a little shy at first meeting; but, given just a
little time she will warm up and show you affection. She is a quiet
girl who hasn't had a single 'accident' in the home and makes it obvious
she wants to please. Border Collies are known to be one of the very
most intelligent canines around; so, her new family is going to benefit
from brains as well as her good looks! She has been fully vaccinated,
spayed, tested Negative for heartworms, and microchipped! Oreo is ready
for her forever home! If you can give her a great home for the rest of
her life, please apply to adopt her today!!
Oreo with her family now!!
Look at this Prissy sweet thing! This
beauty is about 50 pounds of grateful,
happy puppyness - all full of vim,
vigor, and love! We are guessing her
age to be 10 - 11 months, but can't say
Prissy is a little
unsure when she first meets a new acquaintance, but warms up quickly
and wants to play! She is still a pup, so normal behaviors of
stealing shoes, pulling at the leash, not liking baths and being
startled by loud noises are present, but being worked on by her
Foster Mom! House training is almost complete, too. She is being
taught to sit by the door when she needs to go out and her Foster
Mom says it is coming along nicely. Prissy responds to reprimand
quickly and really wants to please. The Foster Mom says that Prissy
is treat-motivated and has mastered 'sit,' already!
Even though she loves
chasing squirrels and playing tug-of-war in the yard with her canine
companions, Prissy is a big-time cuddler who will watch TV or nap on
the couch with you to your heart's content. She has more kisses to
give than you could ever use up!
Prissy at home with her family, yay!
REBA!! Remember her song, "One
Chance Fancy?" Well, that applies to this fancy girl, too! =) In
case you can't tell, our Reba is a red Husky! We believe purebred, but
since she was pulled from an animal control facility where she was
listed as 'stray,' we have no proof! We DO know for a fact that she is
as sweet as they come and quieter than most Huskies! She is a small
package (like her name sake) at only 33 pounds. She is full of joy,
antics, and affection. Reba does great with other dogs and children -
shows interest in cats but hasn't been officially "cat-tested." She
loves tummy rubs, crunching ice, and playing tug-of-war with her canine
buddies. She sleeps on her back, always making that tummy available for
a little rub! Reba is very close to being officially house trained, and
she is great on leash. She has been fully vaccinated, spayed, and
microchipped. She is approximately a year of age and she tested
heartworm negative! Reba is All of this tied up with a red bow! Apply
for her today, if you are interested in giving this beauty a great home
and enjoying her company for many years to come! She may even learn to
sing for you!
Reba settling in to her forever home!
is a precious little guy with a playful,
loving personality!! BHS pulled him from
the local animal control facility a couple
of months ago. He had to be shaved down
because of severe matting, but his curly
coat is growing out, now, and revealing some
interesting gray markings near his ears,
tail, and a little on his back. He is
young - only a year to a year-and-a-half and
appears to be mostly Mini-Poodle -- all 11
pounds of him! He is heartworm negative,
neutered, and microchipped. Rocky will
dance for his treats and does well with dogs
of all sizes and cats, too! We feel that
he really does need at least one other dog
to play with because this little guy does
love to play. But, he likes his quiet time
in your lap, too! His Foster Mom says he
is quite the cuddle-bug and he gets to sleep
in bed with her! Rocky does have an
adventuresome spirit and likes to explore -
sometimes outside the confines of his own
yard! So, he will need a very securely
fenced yard to keep him safe when outdoors.
Of course, the best idea is to go out with
him to supervise his activity, and to keep
him safe from birds of prey. If this boy
sounds like someone you would like to share
life with, please apply to adopt him today.
This Rocky can help you smooth out any rough
patches life may deliver! =) Apply Today!!
Rocky with his wonderful family, yay!
is Ready!! This handsome boy is rearing to get on with life in a
home of his own! Rudy was rescued from the streets and he has now
gained weight, been house trained, fully vaccinated, neutered,
tested Negative for heartworms and microchipped. All that he needs
now is a great home!
Rudy is a young (12 - 18 months), Very
Energetic guy; so, if you are looking for a slow-paced, laid-back
dog, keep scrolling! This fellow is all about checking everything
out, running like the wind, playing hard, and squeezing every ounce
of happiness from
moment. And, at the end of all that.... he
will cuddle like a teddy bear. =) His Foster Mom describes him
as "goofy and fun-loving," and she is touched by how affectionate he
He's in a foster home with just one
small dog and 3 cats... None of which fills his need for hard play;
but, Rudy makes the best of it by chasing squirrels in the yard,
playing with toys (he LOVES toys), and just running laps! He needs
an active home, hopefully, complete with at least one other
energetic dog or an older child who wants to play.
may have had a hard time on the streets because he is a little
skittish on first meeting. NOT at all aggressive, just good at
avoidance; but, once he decides you are not there to hurt him, he's
all fun and giggles!
If you think this beautiful, free-spirited soul is suited to your
lifestyle and home, please apply to adopt him today. Rudy is

boy is absolutely precious, friendly, and loving!! We can see Red
Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog) in his heritage- the rest eludes us, but
he is so handsome! =) If you adopt Rusty, he will most certainly
become one of your most favorite family members...to know him is to Love
him!! Please apply today!
Rusty is thrilled to be off the streets and
in a loving home.
a Golden Retriever/Australian Shepherd mix, was rescued from a hoarding
situation. We believe her to be approximately 7 months of age and she
is now 33 pounds and growing. Sandy has the wonderful, easy-going
personality of a Golden Retriever coupled with the intelligence of the
Aussie! What a great combination of breeds! She learned to use the
dog door in less than 5 minutes, sits on command, is mostly
house-trained, and responds to reprimand immediately. She's the first
one to show up and sit when she hears the ice dispenser activate...
LOVES crushed ice! =) She gets along great with all the other dogs in
the foster home. She spends the day running, chasing, tumbling, and
roughhousing with the others and shows immediate submission, if someone
gets too rough! Smart Girl!! Sweet Sandy is ready for adoption now that
she is healthy, vaccinated, and spayed. If you are ready to have a
fantastic, life-long canine companion, Sandy should be a strong
Sandy's 'family portrait' in her new home!
Shasta is ready for her forever home!
This absolutely PRECIOUS senior girl (6
- 7 years) is about 64 pounds of pure
sugar. She is very sweet, gentle,
house-trained, tolerant, quiet, and just
wants to be by your side and loved. She
has been fully vaccinated, spayed, and
Shasta had a Hellacious
life, and now deserves to rest and repair. We believe she may be a
Great Pyranees/Yellow Lab mix. She was rescued with another dog who
did not survive and she misses him.
Shasta has some quirky
behaviors, but none that would be show-stoppers in a great home.
She does not require a lot of activity, although a daily walk around
the block would be nice! She is a mellow dog who is content to sit
at your feet and watch the world go by.
You will see in the
photos how good she is, even with the pesky little puppy who thinks
she may be his Mom. =)
My heart breaks for her
when I visit with Shasta. There is an underlying quiet - almost
sadness that tells me a lot about her life before rescue. We want
to see her in a happy home, soaking up all the love she was denied
by her original humans.
Please apply to adopt
Shasta, if you are looking for a gentle, sweet dog to pass time with
till the end of her days. You will never find a kinder heart than

Little SPIRIT is a Shih Tzu mix, and
only about 10 months of age. She was found after having been
securely taped inside an old diaper box and thrown into a ditch.
There are witnesses that saw the box in the ditch for at least
4 days. Someone got curious and stopped to look, and discovered
this little Treasure buried inside! She was in terrible
condition from having severe mange, and from having been stuffed
inside that box for so many days AND nights... in January!!
But, she emerged from the torture with such a wonderful, happy
Spirit even though she was in misery with her eyes matted
closed, and literally bleeding from the horrible mange and
cut-up mouth from trying to chew her way out of the box. The
veterinary staff were also amazed and they actually are the ones
who named her SPIRIT! She has now recovered completely from
mange, is growing a nice new coat, has been fully vaccinated,
spayed, and microchipped. Spirit is ready for the great home
that she has EARNED and deserves! If you are interested in
adopting this darling little girl, please apply today!
Spirit is one happy girl in her new home!!

life with a home and family of her own! We
believe this beauty to be Husky/Lab mix with

old and weighs about 55 pounds and she's a
talker! She had brought so much joy and so
many laughs to her foster family!! She is a
sweet, funny girl who has been
house-trained, fully vaccinated, spayed, and
microchipped! She loves her walks and does
great on leash. She is good with other dogs,
and adores her humans, especially children!
