Update from Dexter's family (September 2014):

I wanted to thank you guys for one of the best friends I have. We got Dexter aka Fat Albert a year and a half ago. He will be 2 in November and he is such a sweet boy. He's always the first to greet and play, whether dog, cat or human alike and he is a great traveller and loves our camping trips. We love our Dexter and have you to thank.

SOLEI
Solei: Female
Age: 4.5 months
Breed: Collie mix
Good with other dogs: Yes
Good with kids: Yes
Good with cats: Yes
Energy: Medium
Special Needs: Solei is deaf

I may have troubles hearing but I think I make up for that ten-fold by being an extra smart cookie. My foster mom says I am quick to pick up on training – so if you’re looking for someone who is eager to learn: I am your girl. I mean, I am only 4.5 months and I already sleep soundly in my kennel all by myself at night, I get along with other dogs, and I adore children. Cats are strange creatures though, I tend to bark at them a bit but I have no interest in chasing them or bugging them, I just want them to know I see them. Overall, I am a calm and affectionate puppy and would be a great addition to any loving family, so don’t let my lack of hearing stop you because it definitely doesn’t stop me!

RADAR
I am a 10 month old Rottie mix. Folks say I am pretty handsome. What do you think? I had a rough start to life and suffered a damaged leg. I have now had  surgery and healed wonderfully. I am calm and gentle and good with other dogs. Older kids are my preference though. I am house and crate trained and love car rides. I am ready to be a puppy again!

SHIRLEY
Age: 9 years
Breed: Retriever mix
Good with dogs: Yes
Good with kids: Yes
Good with cats: Yes
Energy: low

My name is Shirley, and you surely need a friend like me. I may be a bit older, but that just means I am more experienced at being a loving dog. I’m pretty well-rounded. I like kids, dogs, and cats - I’m really not picky! But I do take longer to warm up to men than women.  All I need in life is to know someone is around to give me tons of attention and take me for walks so I can amble along and smell the flowers. Sometimes I can be stubborn so you just have to let me know you’re serious when you tell me to do something. I am quite a catch - so why don’t you take a chance on a special lady like me?

EASTON
If you're looking for an affectionate goofball to be your best friend, look no further.  You know Scooby Doo? That's pretty much me in a nutshell! I mean, I love everybody - kids, cats, and dogs included, but I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to being left all alone. I am one year old Shepherd mix. My foster parents sometimes let me curl up in my crate with a good bone to help me learn that it's okay to be alone for a bit, and that sure helps! But this means I need a forever home with parents that are home more often than not, and a best friend like Shaggy, willing to love me and help me learn to be less of a scaredy-cat!

DARLA
Hey guys Darla here! I am a seven months young Lab mix. Just a happy and confident girl. I've been told I can be a little pushy, but I'm learning my basic manners. I already know sit  and I'm kennel trained. In fact I pace and whine if I don't get to sleep in my kennel. I've also learned to pace to let you know when I need to go out. I'm working on my leash skills, and I love to run. Did I mention I love dogs! Oh yes! The really big ones can be a little scary but if you give me a proper introduction I'm good. Oh and I just love cats too! And well of course I simply adore people. I'm happy to lay at your feet under the table, and I won't even beg for your delicious food. I'm just busy enjoying life, and I can't wait to find my furever home to enjoy it with.

STORM
They call me Storm but I am really a sunny kinda guy! I am a 1.5 year old Collie/ Shepherd mix.  A big goofy pup describes me best.
Since being in foster care I am learning basic manners and how to walk nicely on a leash. I am GREAT with kids over the age of 12, good with non dominant dogs, and have just met a thing people call "a cat". I will keep you posted on my future interactions with this creature.
I have been pretty sheltered in my life so far and hope to continue with obedience training and get exposure to things like that silly garden hose that scares me so..... yikes!!
Overall I am pretty laid back and don't mind just chillin' with the family:)

BITZ
You can call me Mr. Bitz. I am a 3 year old Terrier mix and weighs only 11 pounds. Yes, I am good with dogs, cats and kids both big and small. I am making good progress on my leash manners. Counter surfing is great fun and I haven't met a surface too high to jump on yet!! (I have feeling those these days will soon be a fleeting memory...LOL). I would do best with an active family.

            
POPPY
I am a fun loving 4 month old Shepherd mix sweetheart and still your typical puppy. I will need a structured home to give me boundaries or I would be sure to take over with my charm and good looks.

ELLIE
Hi my name is Ellie. I am just over a year old. Socializing is something I love to do, whether it is a person or a dog. I am good on the leash but get excited when I see someone or something I would like to say hi to, then I pull a little bit. I know a lot of tricks, as well as my basic commands like Sit, stay and lay down. My kennel is a safe place for me, no problem hanging out in there. Attention? YES PLEASE! I promise to repay you in tons of kisses. I am very gentle when I play with other dogs of any size. I am not fond of those pesky cats though.

JOEY
(Jo Jo)

My name is Joey and I was just rescued and am settling into foster care. I am a sweet tempered Labrador mix about 2 years old and weigh in at a whopping 85 pounds. Kids and dogs are my friends. I haven't met any cats yet so I will have to let you know later.
 
BRAVE
We are proud to introduce Brave. This sweet little guy is only about 40 pounds. Brave came to us from NWT. He had a terrible start to life. He was tied up and the rope was embedded so deeply that it cut right through to his trachea. He is completely healed and ready to start his new journey. Brave will be staying in care for a while so we can learn more about him.
Brave is good with cats and kids of all ages. He doesn't need to be kenneled. He chooses only to play and chew on toys. He is really good on the leash. Gets along well with other dogs, but can get a little bit jealous. He just wants all the love he can soak up. Who can blame him.

MARMADUKE

My name is Marmaduke and I'm a 1 year old Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix weighing about 75 pounds. I am tall and lanky and do need to put on a bit of weight. I'm submissive and friendly, great with dogs and cats (but will try to play with them). I'm good with older with kids, but I might knock small ones over when I get excited. Just a sweet guy looking for a new family.
    
BELLA
HELLO! It's me, Bella! Foster mom told me that if I sit pretty my forever family will come along, but I'm too excited, that's just my personality. I love to snuggle and give kisses and I have free roam of the house during the day and at night, I am too much of a good girl to ruin your things! At 6 years young I still love to play, I am great at fetch and will bring the ball back as many times as you will throw it. I am working on my manners and would do best in an only pet home and with older children (foster mom says I can be a bit of a bossy boots). If you are looking for a loyal protector then ask about me, BELLA!

KODA
My name is Koda. I am a middle aged Basset/Dachshund mix. I am making a speedy recovery after treatment for an awful health scare. The picture below is me enjoying a little relaxation in the sun today.
I love big people (little ones make me a bit nervous though). Cats are NOT my thing, mostly because they are so snotty, and clearly I am not, so we just don't run in the same circles of friends because let's face it... it's a dogs life. I'm not a fan of small dogs in my home, but off leash is fine.

LEIA
 Gender: female
  Age: 3 years
  Breed: Chihuahua
  Good with cats: yes
  Good with kids: over 8 years of age
  Good with other dogs: yes
  Energy: low
 
I was given the name Leia because every Chihuahua deserves to be a princess, and really, is there any other princess more classic than Princess Leia from Star Wars? I think not! I am going to live up to my name sake, and embrace all things brave, classy and royal.
I have been working on convincing the other dogs, cat, and my humans that they are my people, and they need to stay around me.  I will be a fair and just ruler!  Full of class and grace – unless you pick me up, then I am not classy or graceful! Ok, don’t judge me!  It’s terrifying to be picked up by giants!!! I will eventually get over that and I’ll send my royal page to announce it.

Update: Sweet little Leia loves warm blankets out of the dryer. If you have a calm household, she might be the girl for you!
