Luke

Luke
Luke is 1 year old and is receiving socialization and training. He is dog-friendly, and applied behavioral training and gentle handling have helped him diminish his wariness of men. While a bit on the submissive side, this, too, is responding well to training. Luke has a hip-socket issue, and assessment of his x-rays concluded that surgery is not necessary right now and likely will not be for years, but as he advances in age, intervention may be necessary. Interested parties should know that Luke is not the choice for a running partner or super-athlete.

Fiona

Fiona
Fiona is a good natured, fun loving dog. Until a few months ago, she spent most of her time alone in a kennel inside a garage, as her previous owners had discovered a family member had an allergy to her. This continued from about four months old to recently (she's now over 1 year old). She is good with other dogs and kids, but she is an Aussie (likes active play, is very energetic, whines when she wants attention). Given her breed and the lack of freedom in her first year of life, it's understandable that she would require time for acclimating, running out the puppy-energy that was suppressed for so long and learning the ropes. She is not house-trained (for the same reason); but she is a smart girl and would be amenable to training. Fiona is looking for the right someone who has affection to share and the space, time and energy to help her experience the broad world before her. Fiona is microchipped and spayed. Oh and one other thing -- she will make a GREAT agility dog!

Micah

Micah
This little girl is a 4 year old Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua mix. Her breed blend equates to a nice combination of qualities, and she is an attractive little dog. Micah enjoys playtime with people, but also loves cuddling and affection. She is blond with white markings and weighs around 10 to 12 pounds. Her body is built like an Italian Greyhound, so Micah is leggy and slender. She is crate-trained and has been using pee-pads, but will need focus on house-training. Micah is nervous around kids, so she will be adopted out to a household without small children. She is great with other dogs, particularly within her size-range.

Adopt a Senior - Annie & Squirt

Adopt a Senior - Annie & Squirt
Annie and Squirt have experienced some difficult life events of late: First, they lost their adoptive mom; then, their adoptive dad; during temporary placement in another home, the resident dog attacked ~~ so, these confused and sad little ladies are looking for a home TOGETHER that they can peacefully share with someone who loves them. They are around 8 or 9, and the most apt physical description is that they're cute, little butterballs. While they were trained to doggy-door, the recent transitions -- and absence of a doggy-door -- have led to house-training failures; they will need re-training in that area.

Seager

Seager
Seager came to us as a stray from Towaoc. He has been a part of our sanctuary and is, now, considered adoptable. He is, however, a shy guy and panics easily, leading him to be a flight-risk in certain circumstances; therefore, he will need handling in keeping with that -- meaning, a secure yard and excursions only on harness/leash. Seager is around 7 years old.

ADOPT A SENIOR - Doogan

ADOPT A SENIOR - Doogan
Everyone always smiles when they see Doogan, because he carries his toys around in his mouth, just vibing out an invitation to play or visit. For all his winning charms, Doogan is another AO dog who has been here an inexplicably long time. Still, this is one dog who can capture hearts with his searching eyes and inviting expression! Doogan is a broad-headed, short-haired mix who came from a local reservation. He is approx. 45 lbs and 10 years old. Doogan has some facial scars from a rough past, but has left all that behind! He has a preference for a female owner, loves other dogs (No cats) and is attentive to direction. We believe he will make a loving and loyal addition to your family!
