Dogs In Care

DOGS IN CARE CURRENTLY

This page reflects the dogs we currently have in care and are or will be available for adoption.  If you are interested, you can find the application on the menu above under the tab “Application”.  Please print the application and fill it out carefully.  It must be mailed in with your original signature on it. 

Should you have questions and want to talk to someone, please keep in mind that many of our volunteers also have full time jobs as well as fostering responsibilities.  They would appreciate it very much if you would make sure to call before 8pm.  If you leave a message for them, they will return it as soon as possible but on rare occasion, it may take a day or two.  We try never to take more than 48 hours.  Phone numbers are in the banner above.


Toby, age almost 11, came into foster care because the grandchildren came to live in his home.  The children are toddlers and do things that toddlers do and it just wasn’t going to work out.  Toby has been a nice dog with humans although a bit headstrong.  He has not done well with other dogs.  We have been working on behavior issues with Toby and he is progressing nicely.

 

 

 

 

Sassy is 4 years old.  She was surrendered because she didn’t get along with the other dogs in the home.  She was very protective of Mom and would snap at anyone who tried to hug her.  It reached a point where they decided she had to find a new home that would suit her better.  Sassy is learning to be with other dogs but is is a learning situation.  We hope that one day she will be able to be with other dogs but it may be that she will need to go to an only dog home.  We continue to work with her on this.

 

 


Lilly is 5 years old.  Her mom passed away and she, along with 2 other westies, were turned in to a shelter.  They all found homes but Lilly was returned.  The shelter then contacted us and let us take her.  Lilly was returned because they couldn’t housebreak her.  The shelter did xrays to eliminate bladder stones as the issue but they put her on antibiotics because there was blood in her urine.  We hope that she will quickly recover and regain housetraining control.  (So far, so good….with lots of trips outside, she hasn’t had any accidents so far.)  Lilly is unusually timid.  But she loves other dogs. Fortunately she is in a foster home with other dogs and we hope this will help her regain her Westie spirit.
