Dogs Available Now:
JOE is 14 years old, but acts more like 8. Other than thyroid medication, he's in really good shape. Does not like to be bullied by young bouncy dogs. Would love a home with other calm dogs or by himself.
LADDIE is 12, but acts more like 15. I need to get him to a vet soon to find out what's going on because he has some blood in his stool, but he gets around ok for an old guy. Loves the fresh air.
MILEY is 8 years old and came from a home where the owner passed away and the spouse is not wiling to take care of Miley anymore. She is the cutest little pixie and from what was told to me, she is very loyal to her person and would do best in a home with only one or two people. I'm sure at her age, she is really confused right now about what's going on.
LACEY is only three years old (9/14/09) and already has had 2 litters; the last one had 7 puppies. After she made enough money for the breeder, she ended up for free in the newspaper. At first I couldn't figure this out because she has many more years of breeding potentially, but about a week after the lady got her 'for free', she was at the emergency center for a pyrometra and emergency spay to the tune of $700.00. Hmmm... Guess "free" doesn't really mean "free". She got through all that in November 2012 and since then, Lacey has not bonded with her and spent most of her time underneath an end table in the living room, possibly because it seemed the closet thing to a crate that she was used to. Lacey needs a fenced in yard and she really perked up here when she saw other dogs, so I don't think she wants to be the only dog.
SAM and HEIDI were confiscated by animal control and taken to a shelter that then called us. They are very bonded to each other. I'm not sure of the whole story, but it sounds like the woman was breeding yet, their records show the same birthday (5/1/05) so I hope she wasn't breeding brother and sister. I haven't had them long, but it looks like we might have to find them a home together. Sam is in the front and Heidi is in the back. They were recently fixed, but I'm pretty sure I'll have to shave them. Their coats are really bad and they have lived in a barn for a long time so they are loving the beautiful weather outside, but need a home with a fence please.
