Cleopatra

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Cleopatra (aka Miss Congeniality) found herself in need of a new home when her owner passed away. She is a super sweet 9 year old girl, about 39 lbs. She is a mixed breed but something about her reminds me of a Shar-pei. She LOVES EVERYBODY ! She loves to go for car rides. Cleopatra needs some work with loose leash walking. She is just so excited to meet anyone that she doesn’t understand leash boundaries yet. Cleopatra is a quiet girl. She had mammary tumors that were removed and tested and were NOT cancer! She is recovering very nicely from surgery.

After a recent adoption event, Cleopatra was zonked in the back seat of the car. But we decided to take her to a fundraiser event and get her Santa photo taken. The event was very crowded with people and dogs of all ages and sizes. Cleopatra went from being zonked in the back seat to Miss Congeniality and the happiest social butterfly you have ever seen ! She wanted to go meet all the dogs and all the people. She helped herself to come doggie treats that were for sale on the table. She is very food motivated !

She would be happiest in a home with another dog as she really wants to play! But not a large, energetic dog. She is a senior and wants to play but moves a little slow. I do not know how she would do with cats. Cleopatra is up to date on all vaccines, heartworm preventative, and flea preventative. She is spayed and microchipped.

Cleopatra is a great companion.

Cleopatra’s adoption fee is $200.

Building Dog Houses

One of our Awesome volunteers went out of her way to help !  Evonne also volunteers with Meals on Wheels to deliver food to those in need.  She noticed that at one home, the family had a dog tied up in the yard.   She tried to convince the owner to bring the dog inside because the weather was turning very cold.   The owner would not agree to do so.   Evonne and her husband built an insulated dog house for the young dog complete with bedding inside !    She even bought a sweater and plush dog bed to help ! Helping one dog will not change the world but it changes the world for that one dog !!   Thank you Evonne !!

(and not to worry, the dog is visiting a home for the cold Christmas weekend where he can stay inside!)

Marden’s Ark Dog Tales also paid for the dog to get up to date on vaccines, heartworm tested, and heartworm & flea preventative.

Eddie

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“Hi! I’m Eddie. You haven’t lived until you’ve been kissed by my extra wide smile!

I promise I’ll be a fabulous family dog. I ride perfectly in the car, walk well on a leash, and I get along with all the animals I have been around so far (dogs and cats). I tolerate plenty of attention from my foster mom’s human baby, too- I even walk nicely beside the big stroller when we go outside for walks. Speaking of walks- I love them. ”

Eddie is a 4 year old neutered male shih tzu mix. After the initial wariness wears off, he’s a cuddle bug and will be a wonderful companion. He has a cleft lip and alveolus (gum), but his hard and soft palate are not affected. He is able to eat and drink fine with no aspiration. We have been feeding him soft food as it’s his preference, but there is no reason he can’t physically eat dry food. He has a completely normal quality of life and should be treated like any other little lovely dog.

Eddie would do fine in a family with or without other dogs. We are working on his house training and it has improved greatly since he was neutered. He also does well in a crate.

Eddie is up to date on all vaccines, and heartworm and flea preventative. He is microchipped and neutered.

Adoption Fee: $300

Sundae

Sundae is a 10 year old brown and white hound/shepherd? mix. She weighs about 40 lbs.  She knows SIT, LOOK, COME,  and will give you her paw for a treat.  She wants to please her family and learns the routine quickly.  Car rides are a definite one of her Likes! She gets along with other dogs and all people.  She is a very sweet and loving girl. She loves to chase a tennis ball and will bring it back some of the time. Since she is a senior girl, she doesn’t need a lot of chasing the ball but a few throws make her very happy.  You can hear that “hound” voice when she’s excited to see you. All 4 of her feet are white so she looks like she’s wearing boots!

Sundae loves her people and wants to spend time with them and go where ever they go !   She is crate trained and house trained.   She’s very well behaved in the house and quiet.  She would like a dog bed in each room of the house that you spend time in so that she can relax and nap with you close by.

Sundae was adopted and is back with us now.   The previous adopters had 2 cats.   The younger cat and Sundae were fine together but the older cat was not accepting of a dog in the house.   The older cat provoked Sundae into a fight.  There was also a young child in the household that Sundae did great with.   Understandably, the parents were concerned for the safety of their senior cat as well as their own child if he were to get caught in the middle of a fracas between Sundae and the senior feline.

Sundae’s bloodwork shows she has early kidney disease.  The vet recommended a prescription  food for Kidney health and Sundae has been on this for several months.   When she came back to us, we had bloodwork done on her and her kidney values have improved after being on the special food !   Hopefully that will continue with the right diet.

Sundae was having some pain in her rear legs.  An x-ray at the vet showed that she has lumbosacral disease with spondylosis.  This is typical with senior dogs.  She may have irritated this condition causing her pain.  She is responding well to pain meds.

She would be happy in a home with other dogs or being the only dog. Sundae is up to date on all vaccines, heartworm preventative, and flea preventative. She is spayed and microchipped.

Sundae’s adoption fee is $200.

Bojangles

Bojangles is a 10 years  young Cairn Terrier/(mix?).   He’s a very sweet fella who loves all people and gets along just fine with other dogs.  He was adopted from a county shelter and returned due to “medical issues”.   The day after Bojangles came to us, he had a severely ruptured abscess from a bad tooth.   We were able to get his teeth cleaned.  He lost 18 teeth total !  But he’s finished his antibiotics and is well on his way to healing.

He loves to sit with you where ever you are and is playful and happy.  He even played some with his 1 year old foster brother.  Bojangles is a calm fella and likes to snuggle but he also likes to be outside.   He is doing very well with house training.  Bojangles has chronic dry eye and requires ointment applied to his eyes twice per day.

Bojangles is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm & flea preventative, and microchipped.

Bojangles’ adoption fee is $200.

If you are interested in adopting Bojangles, please visit our website and fill out an Adoption Application.

His dental was quite extensive and expensive.  If you would like to contribute any amount to help pay for his dental, please go to our Donate page.

 

Winslow

Winslow is a 1 year old, male, 10 lb. poodle.   He was abandoned in a rental residence and found when the landlord went to show it to a renter.   Winslow was terribly matted and very skinny.   He’s gained over 2 lbs since he was found.   Winslow is crate trained and does very well at house training.  He gets along with other dogs and plays with his foster sister continuously!  He is smart and likes to chase balls and sometimes brings them back.  He is starting to learn some commands but Clicker Training is not for him.   Winslow shrinks back at the sound of the Clicker.   He wants attention and loves to sit next to you on the couch when he’s not playing.

Winslow is looking for a family that has time to give him attention and love.  He would really love a friendly, playful dog sibling to help him use some of his energy.

Winslow is up-to-date on vaccines, neutered, and microchipped.

Adoption Fee:  $400
