mambo

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

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.  She moved into a foster home with a ton of greyhounds and immediately made fast friends.  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 herd her greyhounds 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 other 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!

luciano

Luciano is very affectionate and loves getting all the attention. He can be a bit demanding about it at times.  He gets along well with both big and small dogs, and hasn't shown any reaction if other dogs "fuss" at him.  He will try to counter surf and get into the garbage, but listens well to correction.  He loves to be on the furniture. He is crate trained and will sleep in the crate, but much prefers sleeping with his people. He has displayed a little resource guarding with toys, but accepts correction. He really enjoys the yard and tracking all of the "critter" smells.A previous foster reports he is cat friendly, but we haven't officially tested him.The ideal home would have a friend for him to play with, and people who are home a lot. He would do best with an all shade/mostly shade yard, or a family that is diligent with his sun protection regimen.

This 2.5 year old Fawn Gentleman was found wondering in the wild with a lady companion (a female Fawn Dobie).

His skin was in horrible condition, and he has a large cyst that needs removal.

He is Heartworm NEGATIVE.

He has proven to be an amazing sweet, and laid back boy.
From his current Foster Mom:
Foster Gavin update! He has learned what dog toys are and loves them. The couch is his favorite spot. He loves to run in the yard and relax on the porch. His skin is slowly improving though has a long way to go still.

Love, trust, structure, crate training and how to become my best self. Right now I am decompressing. Stay tuned as my story unfolds.

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.

GWEN

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.

Adoption Pending

She is so sweet, and loves everyone. Her interaction with everyone is happy to meet them, even my cats (they don't really appreciate that though). She LOVES kids, but is still working on her jumping up and mouthiness. But she is eager to please and takes no for an answer.

She has a lot of energy, and loves to chew! When she plays with my dogs, she plays rough. My 3-year-old Dobe enjoys the interactions but my 7-year-old Dobe finds her a bit overwhelming. However, if the dogs growl, she backs off respectfully. At this time, having seen her trying to play with my little miniature poodle, I would say that she would do better in a home without small dogs. She does not respect his growls, snarls, or any attempt at communication, although she loves him. He spends a lot of time hiding from her.

This puppy is a cuddler. She wants to be as close to you as possible, maybe even on you when she is sleeping. She gets frightened when alone in her crate, but crates very well if the other dogs are in their crates near her. She gives lots of kisses and is a love-bug!

Finally, she is SMART. Really smart. I have two other Dobes who are both clever, but this little girl figures things out! It took one training session to teach her to sit on command, and she learned to ring the bell that hangs on our back door to go outside AND the doggy door without me teaching her (she just watched my other dogs). We are working on her manners and housebreaking still, but I think she's an awesome dog and would be great for anyone wanting a true puppy, with all the puppy exuberance and joy that comes with them!
