Vader male

2017-05-04

Adopted!

I'm going HOME for Christmas!
CongRATs to the Freeman family!

Location: Oklahoma

Vader and his siblings were abandoned at a restaurant in rural NE Louisiana. They were brought to Oklahoma by volunteer transport on July 13th, at the age of about 8 weeks (our vet's best guess). Vader is about 12 pounds, and the largest of the three puppies. He is affectionate with people, good with the other dogs, and full of energy and enthusiasm. Vader minds very well, especially for a puppy. He is affectionate with people, and good with the other dogs. He even minds pretty well, for a young puppy. Vader and his siblings began his crate training early, and he is doing well with both crate training and house breaking. He likes the cats in his foster home, and even respectful of them. We believe Vader and his siblings are mixed with Beagle, so an adult weight between 16 and 24 pounds would not be unexpected.

Patrick male

2016-01-28

I HAVE a secret Santa!

Location: Florida

Patrick is a very special Rattie. When we first saw him, he was cowering in the back of his cage at a high kill shelter in Miami, FL. Not much was known about him aside from the fact that there was something wrong with his left eye. He was not able to see out of the eye and it was bulging out a little. Nothing extreme, but he needed to see a specialist. We got him out and immediately he bonded closely to his foster mom. She noticed that he held up his right knee when walking briskly so that was also evaluated; Patrick had a very bad luxating patella (knee) and it needed surgery. His eye would only get worse, so we had a specialist remove his eye and work on his knee. Pat recovered nicely from his surgeries, acting like nothing happened. He no longer cowers in fear, but now has a VERY brave persona. He protects his fostermom from critters like squirrels, cats and large dogs. He is quite the character - loving, affectionate and brave. We are looking for a special home for Pat. He loves long walks and to cuddle on the couch. Pat would prefer to be the only doggie in the home because he wants all the attention to himself.

Gumby male

2017-05-14

Adopted!

I'm going HOME for Christmas!
CongRATs to the Benes family!

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Gumby Ratbone is a SPECIAL boy! We were alerted to his plight when a video of him trembling in a cage at a high kill shelter in South Florida was posted. The shelter said his medical was normal - they did not list anything about his rotten and broken teeth. Poor Gumby had MAJOR periodontal disease, and many of his teeth were already missing. He had to have TEN teeth removed, but he pulled thru like nothing happened. Gumby is a very affectionate boy. He is fine with cats and dogs of small to medium size. He isn't happy around larger dogs, and will growl at them - but he responds quickly when he is asked to behave. Gumby is crate trained and enjoys snuggling in bed with his fostermom and some of the other critters. He is GREAT on a leash, and loves to just chill out and watch DVDs and TV shows. Any applicants should understand and accept that Gumby should have regular check ups, and may very likely need yearly dental cleanings, to take care of the remaining teeth that he has. Gumby is about 7 years old and weighs 15 pounds. He loves lamb & rice dry food and he likes "stew"type canned food. Gumby is ready for a great home, one who will adore him and really take care of this special boy. More pictures of Gumby Ratbone can be found here in his album.

Max male

2017-08-12

I HAVE a secret Santa!

Location: Florida

Seniors for Seniors Candidate
Seniors need love too! Max was surrendered by his family to a high kill shelter - at the age of 12 years! He came to us with an old injury to his back leg - which can't be fixed now, due to his age - and horrible dental disease. Max has had a complete dental cleaning, and he is now ready and eager for his retirement home. Max is dog friendly, and is a happy boy. He LOVES to play fetch with tennis balls, even though he doesn't have many teeth left.Would you consider sharing your love with this happy, active fellow for the rest of his life?
