March 2013. I would like to introuduce myself. My name is BEAN. I am 2 yrs and 9 mos old and weigh 5 pounds. For reasons I do not understand, I was surrendered to a shelter and was rescued by these wonderful people. I do have some issues such as not liking cats at all, children or large dogs.
I love taking walks. I love to sleep and snuggle under the covers of my foster mom's bed and I love to be carried around and be spoiled. I must be an only dog and I will love you forever. My foster mom is working on my issues and is teaching me patience.
I am neutered, have had all my vaccinations and my teeth are pretty good. If you think that we could be a "furever" family, please put my name on the application "Bean" and I will be your faithful pal.
My adoption donation is $475 and that includes the microchip.
September 2013. This is Brandy, a beautiful purebred Yorkshire Terrier. Brandy is going through a tough time right now - her owner passed on and she is missing the only pet parent she ever knew. Brandy is 10 years old and weighs just under 10 lbs. Her coat of hair is long and pretty and she doesn't mind having bows or clips to make her even more beautiful. She would do best as an only dog as that's what she is used to. Brandy is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, and ready to meet you to help her get over her grief with a new owner to love her. Her adoption donation is 300.00 including microchip.
January 2014. Fluffy, or her full name of Fluffy Von Bon Bon, is a little doll that is part Yorkie, part Maltese. She was a little ole' mess when she was found running the streets, but now she's clean and white again. She is about 5 pounds and not more than a few months old. She is a nervous girl, given her days on the streets.
She cannot go to a home that will crate her, as she will become rattled and begin chasing and biting her own tail. This got so bad in the shelter that she injured herself and the tail had to be amputated to the length of a cropped tail. An understanding and patient pet parent is what Fluffy needs to guide her in the ways of good puppy manners and behaviors all the while working on her confidence and self esteem.
Miss Fluffy has been spayed, microchipped and has all her vaccinations. She is a happy little sweetheart when she feels secure. She likes to play with other dogs, so a doggie companion about her size and a nice yard to play in will be a great addition to her new life. Please fill out an application on Fluffy Von Bon Bon and make her a part of your life and family. Adoption donation $1000 includes microchip.
September 2013. Queenie is a little girl that was rescued from a high kill shelter. She was surrendered there by her owners who said they couldn't afford her medical bills. Perhaps that was because she had been neglected for so long that she was flea infested, filthy, matted with burrs, and most of her hair had fallen out from flea allergies. The shelter cut away most of the mats and burrs and gave her flea protection. She was very depressed when we got her but gentle and cooperative. After a trip to the vet, shots, cortisone and a good bath and groom she smiled and let us know she was very happy to be going to a warm and welcoming home.
Queenie is very affectionate and quite enthusiastic around other dogs. She loves everyone and has a very good appetite. Not very big, she does weigh 9.5 lbs. With a good diet and daily walk she should trim down just a bit and with vigilance she'll learn her potty manners. Having been kept outside all her 3 years this is a new experience. We are making sure that her lovely hair grows back and she'll be even prettier than she already is.
Queenie has earned a happy home with someone who will love her and continue the care that keeps her happy and healthy. Adoption donation $450 includes microchip.
December 2013. Hi my name is Tommy (I used to be called Pilgrim but I like Tommy better). I was born February 3, 2013 and about 5 lbs, so I am still a puppy who finds everything new and exciting. My foster mom says I am quite gorgeous, whatever that means. I have a beautiful silky silver and blonde coat and a very cute face. She also says I am very sweet ... all I know is I just love everyone, dogs big and small, people big and small, and those things called cats fascinate me and I think I could be friends with them.
I like to sit on my foster mom's lap while she works on the computer. I would love to have a forever home where I could show you how much I love you. And like any puppy I will need some reinforcement about my potty habits and I am working on learning the doggy door. Oh yes and I am very good on the leash. I am neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. I am ready to come be your little forever pup.
If I am the right boy for you complete an adoption application and put my name on it. I can hardly wait! Adoption donation $1000.00.
July 2013. "Hi, I name is Toto! I'm a very spunky and playful almost 8 year old male Yorkie, but you'd never be able to tell my age by how much I love to play. My favorite toys are squeaky balls, but I'm not picky, I'll play with anything with a squeaker! I have a great Yorkie personality, and I always look like I'm smiling. I'm crate trained, walk great on a leash, and I've got silky and easily manageable platinum blond hair! I love to eat, but since I'm so active, I stay at a slim 4 1/2 pounds.
I also get along great with other small dogs, and both men and women, however I haven't met any kids or cats, so I don't know how I'd react to either of them. But my worst enemy is the vacuum cleaner and a close runner up is the blender, but my foster mom is working with me on my temper about that. I'm pretty good with basic commands; I learned sit, come, leave it, and up really fast. I'm also neutered, microchipped and up to date on all my shots, and ready for my perfect forever home!"
