Hi, I’m Mambo! I have a smile that you cannot resist falling in love with. I’m a sweet boy with a few fears to overcome. Bones are life, and I love chew toys more than anything in the world. I love to play and would thrive with a FEMALE sibling that loves to run and play with me. I’m a talkative young man, and I will sing you the song of my people when sirens go by. At night I’m a snuggle bug. I do the most polite sits at the door to come in or go out, and I also sit in my crate and wait to be fed and let out. I have a LOT of energy, so if you want a running or wrestling buddy, I’m your dog!

Abby is a German Shepherd mix who appears to be about 4 years old.  She was found wandering in a residential area with no chip and no tag.  Abby is a happy and smart girl, very eager to please.  She loves to ride in the car and would be thrilled to live in a house with furniture privileges.

Abby’s favorite thing is to get belly rubs and supervise her foster mom.  She’s not a huge fan of the crate but has great house manners and could likely be left uncrated for reasonable periods of time.  Her favorite thing is to be close to her foster mom.  She is typically curled up at her feet while she works and sleeps on the floor next to her bed.  She likes to follow her everywhere she goes.  Abby has never had an accident in the house, nor has she chewed anything.  She will counter surf if left unattended.  She needs work on her leash manners.  Abby does bark occasionally, but not incessantly and is easily corrected.

Abby gets along well with MALE dogs.  She is reactive to outside cats. She would love nothing more than to curl up on the couch with you to binge watch something.  Abby is not a yard dog, she is a house dog who wants to be with you. 

If you are looking for a new best friend, Abby is your girl!

Adoption Pending

Boy am I glad to be in rescue! I was dumped at a high kill shelter with my siblings by a backyard breeder who decided he was done with us. I was very scared and had never been allowed inside before, so coming into rescue was a huge change for me. I’m still overcoming some fears and getting comfortable in my foster home, but I have more bursts of happiness and confidence the longer I’m here! It still takes a while for me to build trust in someone. I will need a patient and understanding home that will let me take things at my own pace.

This 6-7 year old Fawn Lady was found wondering in the wild with a gentleman companion (a male Fawn Dobie).

She is making progress everyday. A bit slower of a learner, perhaps that will improve overtime. She enjoys watching the other dogs sometimes. I’m hoping she’ll pick up some tips.

She has a voice! Kind of howlie and like she’s been goosed

Still hates grass but potties outside on cement, wood or rocks.

She can hold it forever and cries when she has to go.

Will chew on hard bones no soft toys.

All foods are new to her to include treats.

She has claimed the dog bed she found.

She stole an antler from my pit bull!

She sleeps a ton and loves her beds.

Won’t come on the couch yet, which could be good bc we get packed up here.

She loves scratches and pets. I get greeted now with tail wiggles and nose pokes.

Pete
Our new middle aged male. We are just learning about him.  He will be staying with an amazing foster family that will provide details as they learn about Fortune.
 

He is very much a gentleman - he waits for you to go through doors and has no food aggression whatsoever.

- He’s not crazy about the crate, but will allow himself to be loaded in and relax for the day.

- He’s a bit of a gassy boy He gave me a little scare when he started acting puny and I was worried he had bloat, but then he BUUUUURRRPED and he was fine.

- He just wants all the affection!!! He will sit or stand beside you for hours to just be pet. He’s happiest when someone is there to love on him and be with him.

Fancy

Our new female senior addition. We are just learning about her, but we know she is sweet and gentle and wants to be loved.Ms. Fancy is settling in with her foster family.  She has learned about couches and soft beds.  She is fitting in great with the foster pup brothers and sisters.  Fancy has been doing well with the farm life and has met a couple of horses.  She was just so happy to be "helping mom" with the chores she didn't really seem to pay any attention to the horses.Stay tuned for more.

Moon Orchid

Doberman

3 years old, Cropped Ears, Natural Tail, Female.

Moon Orchid - has settled into our crazy house without any issues. She gets along with absolutely everyone and everything! We have 2 large dogs that she loves to run around and wrestle with. she gets along with our dog savvy cat and doesn’t seem to have any issues with our horses. More importantly, she is fantastic around kids and strangers. She is a perfect walker and enjoys prancing next to my daughter on her 4 mile daily walk. She is crate trained and house trained. She loves to be petted but is not pushy. She will follow you around the house! Inknow that lots of people always say, if I could, I would keep XYZ…but I can honestly say, I truly would keep her. She, by far has the best personality of any of the fosters we have had…even the one we fostered failed!! Moon will make an incredible addition to anyone’s family. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions if you think you would be a good fit for this sweet dog!

Dogs Not Quite Ready

Dogs here need a little extra time before finding their forever homes. Some just need a few weeks, others a few months.

If you see *Pending Adoption this means they have found a perfect match once treatment is over. Some may still become available.

Riddle

Riddle

He is the sweetest and eager to please. So so very smart! He knows sit, wait, easy. He's getting "kennel" down... but he'll make sure you have that treat in your hand before actually gets in. He watches everything. No prey drive to note. Gets along and tries to play with cats. He listens when they want to be left alone and doesn't chase or push the subject. He loves to put the side of his ear on your chest and get lovins... it's almost like his own version of a hug...."I just wanted to say hi".

Buckshot1_edited.jpg

Buckshot

When we take a dog into rescue, we commit to that dog for their lifetime. We don’t want them to be failed by humans again. We always tell adopters we will take our dogs back if ever needed.

When we place a dog in a home we trust that the adopter will do right by them and care for them in all the ways they should be cared for.

We are very fortunate that our adopters hold up their end of the deal very much more often than not. Some adopters go above and beyond to ensure their canine best friend will be cared for if they are no longer able to.

Buckshot is our most recent example of that. He was adopted in December 2018 by a man who lost his former Doberman in a divorce.

From day 1, they were all the other needed. An undeniable bond. Two bachelors living their best bachelor lives.

Last year we received a call from Randy that he (the owner) wasn’t well and he wanted to ensure Buckshot would be cared for after his death. I assured him Buckshot could return to rescue.

Last week we received the call that Randy had passed away and Buckshot was willed to the rescue. Having not seen Buckshot in 4 years, we hoped he had been cared for because at the end of the day, all you can do when a dog goes to a home is hope.

When our volunteer went to see Buckshot on Friday he looked amazing! Despite his own illness and needing a caregiver himself, Randy ensured Buckshot had everything he needed.

We welcomed Buckshot back into rescue today and in the process I met an amazing man who not only cared for Randy, he cared for Buckshot when Randy no longer could. He made sure Buckshot stayed current on vaccines and heartworm prevention. An amazing man who despite knowing Buckshot was his last connection to the friend he had cared for over the last year also knew he was not the best option for Buckshots new home.

To put the needs of a dog over your own needs is not an easy task. He followed through with his friends wishes despite the pain it caused him. Randy did not fail Buckshot. He friend did not fail Buckshot. We will not fail Buckshot.

It’s easy in rescue to only focus on dogs, after all that is our purpose. Sometimes though we need a reminder that not all humans are bad. In fact some of them are pretty amazing.
