ADOPTED!! Dougal

Posted Jun 22, 2012 at 1:13 pm in Latest News

Adopted!!CongRATulations to the Wolken family!“Dougal” is a fine Scottish name that just seems to fit this handsome little guy.  Dougal is a type B rat terrier, or a Teddy Roosevelt Terrier, which means he has shorter legs.  Our vets think Dougal is about 3 or 4 years old, and he weighs 14 pounds.  He is housebroken with a doggie door, and seems to be super smart.  He watches his foster mom constantly, waiting for his marching orders.  Dougal plays well with all the other dogs in his foster home, even a 4-month old pup.  He is gentle and docile, and especially loves to snuggle in your lap or at the foot of your bed.  Dougal would do well in just about any home environment.  He walks well on a leash, and loves to ride in the car.  He has an usual bark, it’s like a loud whisper.  His favorite thing to do is chase the robins and squirrels who invade his back yard.  It’s hard to fathom how such a nice boy as Dougal found himself on his last day at a shelter!  Now he’s happily waiting for his new family to find him and take him home where he can stay forever.  For more photos of this handsome guy in his foster home, check his album often for new photos: CLICK HERE

ADOPTED!! Claire

Posted Jun 21, 2012 at 7:53 pm in Latest News


CongRATulations to the Bain family!

Like her ears, Claire has a BIG personality. At 5 to 6 months, she is 110% active puppy. Since she weighs 12 pounds at 6 months, she will likely finish as a standard rat terrier when fully grown, weighing about 20 pounds.  Claire is a very smart girl and is completely housebroken with the dog door, taking herself out as needed. She loves to play and run, especially with other dogs who are willing to play with her!  Because she is a puppy, she can be a bit mouthy when playing or when very excited, therefore, she would do best with children over age 6.  She sleeps through the night and really likes to sleep in bed, but is also content to sleep in her crate quietly. Claire will need space to run off her energy and would not make a good dog for an apartment. Owners with a yard or who are very active runners/walkers would be best for her to burn off her energy.  Claire is a very good girl, and all she lacks in life is a permanent home of her own!  If you think Claire might fit in with your active family, let us know so she can pack her bags to go home!

Hello, I’m Lyla.  I’m 4 years old and recently lost my family, but they told my foster mom that I was a very good girl, so I guess it wasn’t my fault that I don’t have my home any more.  My foster mom says I am laid back, but I do like to patrol the back yard, guarding against any intruding vermin-type animals.  I am a super nice girl, and am housebroken and very well trained.  I like this new family, and there are kids and other dogs to play with, but I would really like my own home and family where I will never have to be sent away again.  My foster mom says that I’m soft like a marshmallow and I need to regain my girly figure, whatever that is!  My tail is bobbed, just a nub, so when I’m happy (which is ALL THE TIME) I wiggle my butt so you will know.  I enjoyed a spa day and got a manicure and pedicure by my new foster mom who said she never had a better behaved pampered pup!  I also heard nice compliments from all the new people I’ve met, so for now I’m in good hands.  I’m taking applications for a new, furever family, who will play with me and love me, forever this time.  For more photos of Lyla in her foster home, check her album:


ADOPTED!! Dixie Belle

Posted Jun 6, 2012 at 8:07 pm in Latest News


CongRATulations to the Randolph family!

Just like any well-bred Southern girl, Dixie Belle has two names!  Dixie Belle is a sweet 10-month pup who somehow found her way into the shelter in Cabot, Arkansas.  The volunteers there worked hard to get her into rescue because of her wonderful temperament.  She seems to love everyone.  Dixie weighs about 14 pounds, and should probably be 16 when healthy.  (she’s a bit skinny right now)  Dixie Belle has already learned the doggie door in her foster home and is doing great with her housetraining.  She is crate trained and sleeps willingly in a crate at night.  Her favorite thing is stuffed animal toys!  She loves to play with the other young dogs in her foster home, and we think she would be fine with children.  She is self-confident and not at all shy or skittish.  Dixie Belle has beautiful, long legs, and she can run like the wind!  She loves to snuggle into a pile of warm laundry and take a snooze.  The best home for her would have a fenced-in backyard so she could run and play.  Dixie is very smart, and watches her foster mom all the time, wanting badly to please her.  She also likes her foster dad and greets visitors with a wagging tail.  For more photos of this pretty girl in her foster home, check her album often:

Adopted! Echo

Posted Jun 1, 2012 at 3:07 pm in Latest News

Adopted!!  Echo was rescued from the Tri-Cities shelter in Texas along with Tango.  Echo is about 8 years old, according to our vets, and weighs about 11 pounds.  Echo is laid back and docile, and mainly just wants to be a lap dog and companion to his person.  He does well on a leash, and walks nicely with you.  Echo doesn’t seem to want to bark at the other dogs, and doesn’t jump up on the furniture or your lap unless you signal to him that it’s okay.  Echo seems to be very well trained, and loves to snuggle with his foster mom.  Echo is not a jumper, and is mostly content to keep you from being lonely.  Echo would be a fantastic companion to someone who lived in a more settled, quiet environment.  He’s a handsome boy, for sure, and someone would be lucky to have him as their best friend.  For more photos of Echo, click here:

    Tango comes from the Tri-Cities area of Texas, and was rescued along with his housemate, Echo.  They had been at the shelter for months, with everyone passing them over.  Our vets think he is between 6 and 8 years old, and weighs 11 1/2 pounds.  This boy still has a lot of spunk left!  Tango has a lot of spring in his step, and can really jump high.  Tango is friendly to people, but doesn’t really know how to play.  His foster mom is teaching him that the world isn’t such a scary place.  Tango has come a long way in foster care, and seem to be happy in their Texas foster home.  This good-looking guy is doing well with his housetraining, and he thinks sleeping snuggled up next to his foster mom is the best thing in the world.  If you would like to know more about Tango, check out his photograph album:    And be sure to watch his video below:
