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.

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.

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.

Ariel

Ariel
Sweet little Ariel was sent our way, a very pregnant girl whose time was up for finding a home at another shelter. She was picked up running loose and was, unfortunately, impregnated during her first heat cycle. She had her "one-time" healthy litter of seven shortly after arriving and performed her role as a mother extremely well, especially considering that, at the time, she was still under a year old herself. She is a very people-focused lady, good with dogs, very attentive, affectionate and eager to learn. Ariel's ideal home will include another medium-energy canine friend and a family that will provide moderate activity, since an early-life injury to one of her feet causes some slight compromise. This 2 year old is ready to start a new life of her own -- filled with comforts, ample vittles and LOTS of affection!

Adopt a Senior - Carmen

Adopt a Senior - Carmen
Carmen has been receiving increased training, and this focus - along with extra exercise and socialization - has helped her with her extreme shyness. She has experience living in a household, and the ideal placement for her will be with a single, quiet individual. She was probably house-trained, but will need a tune-up in that area after placement. She will require lots of patience and love, as well as continued effort toward training and socialization. Carmen is 8 years old.
