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 - Odie

ADOPT A SENIOR - Odie
Odie is just the coolest boy -- mellow and affectionate. He is another one of our dogs who has been here far too long! In his young, rebellious years, he "ran with the gang," but that was then, this is now. He is an older guy -- 12 years old -- and weighs about 55 lbs. He must have a fenced yard and has to be kept on a leash when walked outside of his yard. 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. He enjoys people and would love a permanent placement for the remainder of his days.

ADOPT A SENIOR - Traveler

ADOPT A SENIOR - Traveler
Traveler has been waiting for "a person of his own" for a very long time. He has lived his entire life at Annie's Orphans, having been found as a stray with his mother when he was about 5 weeks old. They were both starving and close to freezing on the 5 degree morning of their rescue. As a quiet boy, he has been repeatedly overlooked. Traveler is a shy fellow and takes time to warm up, but is able to bond. He is good with most dogs. His preferred placement is a calm, quiet environment with no children. Traveler is on the small side of medium and is 10 years old. UPDATE: Traveler has developed swelling/arthritis in a front foot. He also had a tumor removed from his tongue. His paradoxical reaction to the surgery has been amazing, in that he is acting like a kid again -- animated, full of energy! Give this "seasoned" boy a chance for a great home!

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 8 years old. UPDATE: Swayze was recently diagnosed with Pemphigus Erythematosus.

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 - 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.

Murdock

Murdock
Murdock is such a happy boy -- which says much about him, for his life has not been an easy one. He and his brother were picked up as stray puppies, both having experienced physical trauma, deduced to have come from abuse. The outcome of that, for Murdock, is what appears to be trauma-related brain-damage, with resulting developmental delays and visual "miswiring." Murdock is now one year old and, as the months pass, he is showing clear signs of improvement; but he has special needs and will require a home that can both accommodate his differences and support his potential. In return, this fellow will delight you daily with his unwavering optimism, innocence and absolute lovability. (See more about Murdock on Annie's Orphans home-page.)

Oliver/Odie

Oliver/Odie
One very appealing boy, Oliver is extremely social, excellent with people and good with most other dogs. He is about 1 1/2 years old and came from a Missouri high-kill shelter, having been found as a stray puppy trying to eke out a living for himself. While he is largely house-trained, he will still need supervision. Oliver also benefits from the presence of another well-trained dog within the household whose cues he can follow. One concern is that Oliver has developed a liking for cords/hoses, and training is in place to discourage this fetish. Site-specific training as well as supervision will need to occur after he has found his perfect home.
