Murphy is a sweet little man who loves his mom and loves his toys. He likes going for walks and gets excited when he sees his leash. He is cuddly and sweet but is a dog who preferes one person and staying home, except for familiar walks. Murphy doesn't like dog parks. He doesn't like stores or coffee shops. He likes the security of his home and neighbhorhood. Sadly, when out and about, everyone wants to pet the cute dog and this freaks him out.

Murphy has been abused in his past and it was by a man. He is okay with his foster dad and gets very excited when he comes home from work and takes him for walks but if mom is around he prefers mom. If he is sitting with mom and dad comes up, Murphy will give him a look and low growl. WE can tell he has been beaten with sticks b/c he is terrified of anything stick-like or the broom. He won't even go into the same room with the broom. He is also terrifed of crates and will visiably tremble and hide if he thinks he has to go into one. He is freer un of his foster house.

Murphy is in a foster as an only dog but spent two weeks with one of our fosters that has five dogs. He did great in both and seemed to like having friends. Murphy needs a person with DOG EXPERIENCE and patience to allow him to come around on his own b/c he isn't going to instantly be comfortable or happy in a new home.

Olivia is a high energy little girl. She is always busy and follows me everywhere. She likes to go zoom zoom around the house, room to room, up on the furniture so she can see out the windows. She is a door darter so she needs a home who can be very aware of her and pick her up when people go in and out the door. Olivia also sleeps on the bed :) Olivia loves everyone and wants to sit in their lap and be held. When they leave she cries at the door b/c she hates to see her friends go.

She needs a home who can laugh at her silly persoanlity and doesn't mind going outside with her. If she has another dog to pal around with she is much more confident and will go by herself. She needs to be allowed on the furniture and on the bed. She loves kids and would be great with gentle children BUT she will run out that door so that is the issue with kids in the home.

Medical Notes: Olivia is in great healthy but we did have to clean her horrible teeth. She now only has THREE TEETH in her mouth so she will require soft stew type food (no pate b/c it just mashes to the bottom of the bowl), and tiny chunks of kibble b/c she can't chew anything. :( She still loves to eat and is handling it well.

Moose sleeps under the covers and loves to sit in your lap. He has to have a blanket b/c he loves to curl up under it even in hot weather. He , of course, thinks he is a big dog all other times. He will tell the big dogs off when they almost step on him and he will chase a cat three times his size until he gets reprimanded. He isn't trying to hurt it he is just being a brat. I think if he lived with them he would adjust just fine. Moose loves to go for walks. Whenever I move the leash he will come jump up on my leg wanting to go. He also loves car rides and thinks he should drive. This little man is full of personality and if I didn't have so many dogs I would keep him but he gets grumpy b/c he wants me lap to himself and although he loves me I know he would be happier somewhere else.

Dooley is an darling little man. He is very smart and eager to please. He loves to play with the other dogs and he loves to sit high up on things and look out the window. It is nothing to find him perched on the arm of the sofa for no reason. He is always happy and has a lot of personality. When we get a pile of mulch delivered, he is the first to the top to roll around slide down. He keep us laughing.

Dooley wears a belly band. I think this could come off if he got into a home who was consistent with training and letting him in and out. His previous home did not housetrain him and let him get away with everything. He has since lived in the kennel house which has an inconsistent schedule (my fault). So he wears a belly band when inside. It velcros on him and I just pull it off for outside time and put it back on for inside time. We have had plenty of dogs not need them anymore after a few weeks of consistency in a new home but we need to make people aware of this issue. He really wants to please his person so.....

Jojo is a love bug full of playful energy and lots of personality. He loves to play fetch is the fast dog I have ever seen when running. He loves his toys, stuffed animals, bones, balls, whatever. I give him an empty water bottle and he is in heaven! Jojo is also a huge lap dog and will not be able to be trained to stay off the bed or furniture. I have had Jojo for 6 months and I know his personality very well. He is a great great dog but can be a little stubborn. If I am ready for him to go in his crate and he is not, he will stand across the room, and flip over and show me his belly. I have to go pick him up! He loves all dogs, chases the cat, and loves all people. Jojo needs an active home who can wear him out. FENCED YARD is required b/c he is a little scared on leash and barks at everything. He gets detracted and won't potty plus he needs room to run and play ball!

Foster Home Notes: Annie is a tiny little baby. She is very shy and always has been. She is not leash trained. When we put her on a leash, she crawls on her belly but she is getting better and when we can walk her with one of her sisters she follows them. She needs a home with no small children who will be loud and want to carry her around. She needs a nice home who will just pamper her and love her for the sweet, shy, little girl she is.

Casey is the funniest little dog I have ever met. He dances on is hind legs with his arms stretched out as high as they will go to get your attention and to be picked up. He has this loud tiny little bark and you only hear if the other dogs bark but you would think he is much bigger then he is. He loves to climb on my chest in the mornings and rub his face and paw at his ears then give me kisses of joy that I am getting up. Casey has lived with alot of dogs, small and large and has learned to maneuver around just fine without being stepped on a nd he won't hesitate to tell a big dog off. He loves to sit in your lap and he likes to have sweaters on in winter.

Now for the hard part: Casey has been manhandled by someone in his past when they were brushing him or grooming him. He will bite if you pull his hair. We have had to sedate him for grooming but I am slowly working with him on allow me to brush him. So this said, he has to be kept short haired b/c he tangles easily and you can't pull his hair to brush him out BUT you also can't just take him to a normal groomer b/c he turns rather evil. We want to laugh b/c he is so tiny but he has werewolf teeth when he wants too. Sadly, this is why he was going to be euthanized by his last owner. She just couldn't handle him.

Casey has been here many months and we have worked with him so that I can now wipe his eyes and trim his face. I can only shave him is I hold him in the air with one hand so he doesn't get a good look LOL.

I love this tiny little man but he needs someone special to love him and understand him.

Lucy is a 4 year old, 13 lb Miniature Pinscher. She is a absolute doll baby who loves her foster siblings. She plays and cuddles and really enjoys her weekly and sometimes daily hikes in the woods with her foster parents. She is a great walker.Lucy is very smart and listens well. She is totally housebroken and does not need a crate. She sleeps in the bed and in typical mnpin fashion, she requires a blanket for all naps and snuggle times.

Lucy would love to have a home with another dogs and someone who likes the great outdoors. She isn't high energy but with her intelligence, sitting at home all day will bore her to death.

Dora is very shy and scared but she loves to he held and protected. She has come out of her shell but it took a couple of weeks. She now is sitting in everyone's laps and going for walks in the woods with her doggie siblings and foster parents. She is curious but this newfound life of scary things, noises, squirrels, door bells, etc, makes a little nervous still. She is good with dogs, cats and humans. We prefer a home without children or older kids who understand she just needs a special quiet TLC home.

Foster Home Notes: Abby is a doll baby who loves to stare at you. You will feel like you are being watched and sure enough, you look down and she is staring with her soulful little eyes wanting to be held. Abby is a love bug, and very playful. She loves other dogs and toys. She has recently learned to walk on a leash and is enjoying life. We feel that Abby will need to go to a home WITH ANOTHER SMALL DOG> She has been to a couple of homes where the other dogs have not welcomed her and she has been terrified but being alone also it tough on her. See her sisters below.

Foster Home Notes: 2 yrs old, 7 lbs - Zane is a precious little thing who obviously loves to be held.  He walks great on a leash and is good with other dogs, cats and kids.  He will bark at strangers like most chihuahua's but he does not bite.  He loves to play.  He bounces around with his toys and plays chase with the other small dog in his home.  He is a great little man with a wonderful personality.

We are still working on housebreaking Zane but he is 99.9% there. I think getting him into a consistent home with a consistent schedule will do the trick.
