Luke - Adoption Pending!

Luke - Adoption Pending!
Luke is a 2 year old BC mix. 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, per his vet, 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.

Murdock

Murdock
This happy little boy is representative of Annie's Orphans' dedication to the foundations that "LIFE MATTERS" and "EVERYONE DESERVES A FAIR CHANCE." This young Carolina Dog mix and his brother were transferred to us a mere two-hours before their brief lives were scheduled to come to an end. Little is known about their back-story, but they were picked up as strays with evidence of physical trauma -- presumably from abuse. The outcome of that, for Murdock, is what appears to be trauma-related brain-injury, with resulting developmental delays and visual "miswiring." Murdock is now one year old and, steadily, as the months pass, we see him evolving, with clear signs of incremental improvement [ex: increased visual tracking ability and less time "watching airplanes" that don't exist (not to us, at least)]! Despite his life-challenges and tough breaks, Murdock is one of the most innocent and happiest beings on earth, which says much about him! He would be best suited for a home that has plenty of love to give and can both accommodate his differences and support his potential. We have reason to believe that Murdock will blossom -- given a supportive environment, with exposure to standard doggy life-tasks, as well as graduated introduction to all types of stimulation. In return, this fellow will delight you daily with his unwavering optimism, his cute antics and his absolute lovability!

ADOPT A SENIOR - Odie

ADOPT A SENIOR - Odie
Odie is the "Steve McQueen" of dogs: just the coolest boy -- mellow and affectionate. Having boasted a scrappy, independent youth -- running as top-dog with the pack, while taking night-courses in How to Makes Ends Meet -- he has long-since seasoned into The Canine King of Cool. This chill, been there and back, 12 year old would make an excellent addition to a laid-back household. While Odie enjoys his celebrity status at Annie's Orphans, he has a lot to offer and is looking to share his place in life's spotlight with an equally epic human! He must have a fenced yard and leashed walks. As an older fellow, he now has arthritis (and is on Rimadyl), but it doesn't affect his sunny outlook. The only thing that ruffles Odie's feathers is the sound of thunder, although he is also not easy-going about cats. Collected with other dogs and excellent with people, Odie rocks!

Adopt a senior - Swayze

Adopt a senior - Swayze
Swayze has a "complex personality" -- He gets very attached to "his" people, LOVES playing with kids and is fun to watch as he entertains himself with his jolly ball and tries to get the attention of visitors with his squeaky toys. He's also good with other dogs. Meanwhile, when bonded with core people, he can become protective of his family and their space and can act suspicious and guarded where strangers are concerned. He would only be a candidate for adoption to the right person: someone who is very dog-savvy and would offer consistent and appropriate training and guidance around Swayze's guarding behaviors.  The ideal setting would be a low-bustle, predictable living situation, with few comings and goings of non-core people.  Swayze is around 9 years old. UPDATE: Swayze was recently diagnosed with Pemphigus Erythematosus.

Wolfie

Wolfie
Wolfie was born at Annie's Orphans, to a pregnant mother who was accepted from an out-of-state shelter prior to being euthanized. He was adopted out as a baby along with his sister Bailey. He is 6 years old and was returned within the first year of his life for pack aggression toward another household pet. Additionally, Wolfie develops a strong bond with a person and has shown protective/guarding behaviors when other people approach the primary individual. Adoption is a possibility to only the right individual who has knowledge of the breed and of handling challenging behaviors in dogs.  The necessary living arrangement would include a quiet setting with a solo person.

Zoe

Zoe
Zoe is around 6 years old. When she arrived here, she was in her final days of pregnancy and had been traveling, as a stray, on a busy Utah highway. She loves people (sometimes, with a bit more enthusiasm than is necessary, but she does settle down with appropriate direction). Zoe will need a home with a secure yard, and an active lifestyle would be good for her. She would like a companion who can be with her a lot --someone who works from home or is retired. Another doggy companion would also be ideal.

Toto

Toto
This senior Chiweenie will need a special home. He is overweight and needs gentle exercise on a regular basis. Toto is good with other dogs and loves lap-time. He would like a female caregiver, as he is not very good with men. A home without small children is also needed. He is between 11 and 12 years old.

Pounder

Pounder
This little man will need a special home, with someone who understands and has the patience for old dogs. He is a 15 year old schnoodle, with a very sweet disposition, but some mental weaknesses due to old age. His vision and hearing are also failing at this point. He was originally brought in to Annie's Orphans after his owner was stricken with Alzheimer's.

Adopt A Senior - Sammy

Adopt A Senior - Sammy
Sammy is now 9 years old and is a good, but very shy, one-person dog. She would be excellent for a single-person household. A patient individual with a lot of doggy-know-how would be the ideal match. Sammy needs a secure, fenced yard. She tends to be dominant with other dogs, but can get along with them. Sammy came to our shelter from a rescue in Dulce.
