Adopt a Senior: Peanut

Adopt a Senior: Peanut
Peanut has had an interesting history with our shelter, in that -- after 3 adoptions -- she keeps coming back to be with us. She is, without question, an absolute favorite here...with staff, volunteers and visitors. This girl is smart, attentive, friendly, ready to entertain...just a happy, engaging girl. She will be an exceptional companion in the right home: This means a household with no other dogs, no cats and no small children. Even though Peanut is 9 years old, she is still full of energy and will need a secure fence. What we have found through rehoming efforts with her is: 1) while she has been tolerant of dogs in a social sphere, Peanut will not share a home with them; 2) now that she is older, her patience for young children has flown and she will not be adopted out to a household with small children or where little kids frequently visit; 3) Peanut will require leashed activity and a secure fence. Having said all that, Peanut is a superb dog for an individual or couple who can offer her the amazing companionship that she can gift back. Call us about this gorgeous, fit and healthy girl !!

Adopt a Senior - Squirt

Adopt a Senior - Squirt
Squirt recently lost her adoptive family; then, while in temporary placement in another home before coming here, was attacked by the resident dog. So, she is shy and unsure, at this point. She is around 8 or 9. She was trained to a doggy-door. Squirt will need tender, patient handling and will probably do best in a low-key home with a single, mature adult or couple.

Sampson

Sampson
Sampson is a cute and wonderful boy who needs a little more confidence to overcome his shyness. He has, however, made lots of progress. He is great with other dogs and is always ready to play. Sampson is good on leash and is learning his commands well. He just needs a stable family to show him that not all people are mean and nasty. He is 3 years old. A fenced yard will be an absolute necessity. Email your inquiry and come see this active boy play!

Breezy

Breezy
Breezy bonds quickly and securely and seems to choose one individual as the focus of his world. He has a sweet nature and a delicate build. His coat is very light and short, so sunning will need to be minimized. At 8 months old, Breezy has little experience with the basics of house-training, so will require a strict schedule and patient but "dogged" guidance. Still, he is an adorable, very small boy who is hoping for that special someone to come along and do a walk through life with him!

Nini

Nini
This precious little one is a happy, personable, enthusiastic being, despite her difficulties up to now. Nini (formerly labeled Theresa) is truly ready for some sweetness in life, having been seized from a hoarding situation along with several others who found their way to Annie's Orphans. Like the other dogs, she was malnourished and so matted that her coat had to be shaved down. She was also treated for bilateral ear infection. It's believed that Nini was kept crated for much of her life which, with poor nutritional status, contributed to little muscle mass. Upon arrival, she used her rear, right leg very little and seemed unable to support much weight on it. The professional belief was that she had patellar subluxation. However, with a few weeks of good nutrition and increased ability to exercise, she has made a remarkable turnaround. She is now exhibiting boundless energy and is using all fours smoothly with very little favoring noticed, and that being sporadic. We are looking for the perfect lifetime companion(s) for Nini. She is attentive and loves people and enjoys being given love and attention. She also likes dogs, but is a dominant girl with a high play need and is food-protective with other dogs (probably a result of having to vie for meals). A home without small children is being sought, since Nini weighs less than 7 pounds and has a delicate frame. She is believed to be 1 1/2 years old.

Polly

Polly
This girl is SOOO cute! Polly was found as a stray, living with her sister and another small dog under a dumpster and managing to subsist on scraps from a nearby restaurant. She is crate-trained, and her sister proved to be house-trained upon placement, so there's that possibility for Polly as well; however, since we've never put that to the test, it is not a certainty. She is 2 years old or under and weighs 10 lbs. Because of her life experiences, she came to us very shy, but is getting more comfortable daily. While she warms up sweetly in someone's arms, she is still difficult to catch and is not yet at ease on leash. She is a healthy-looking weight, fully vaccinated and spayed and is patiently waiting for her new life-companion to visit!

Tatum

Tatum
Tatum is still looking for her life-time person. She is a "tom-boy," not into holding and petting, but a good watch-dog and a fun-loving companion. Tatum is a little ginger-colored girl, who was picked up as a stray, scared and alone. She is at a stable weight and in good form, after her time of having to scrounge for food and hide from dangers. Due to unknown experiences, she came into our shelter skittish/nervous and has made some headway in that area. Still, she will need a patient and loving handler -- someone with whom she can develop trust, who can accept her for her good qualities and not require a lap-dog. She is best suited for a quiet living situation, a household with no children. "Tater" is a part of a "pack" of small dogs out here, loves her pals and playtime and would most likely do quite well with another small household dog. She is probably 6 years old, around 5 to 6 pounds and infinitely cute!!

Ammo

Ammo
Ammo, Male, Jack Russell Terrier, 3 1/2 years old (birthday July 10, 2006), ~24 pounds. He needs to go to a home without small children (kiddos 3-4 and under), he would love a large backyard to run, and preferably no other dogs except his brother Satchel (or cats) (although not necessary if unavoidable; it would just be easier on them). They have had some puppy training classes (from PetSmart) to sit and stay but aren't very good with stay command as we haven't made the time to really work with them. They are current on shots. They are also microchipped! When we took these surrender dogs in, we could see they were good and very trainable. They learn quickly and will make wonderful companions.
