Our beloved mascot Violet, who you see in our header every day, went to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. She was a beautiful old girl who previously had a rough life and inspired us all with her will to live and love left to share. Violet was a fabulous ambassador for DDARS and she will always be in our hearts.


Hi I am Luke,
 I am a lovable guy and only 2 years old! I enjoy belly rubs so much I just can't get enough. I like playing with other dogs and people (even little people). I am also a pro at tug-a-war and fetch. I am good on a leash, will walk nicely (but can get over excited when I see other people and animals and just really want to go say hi).
 I sit and stay and will go to my bed when told; I am learning so many new things and would love the opportunity to learn them with my forever family.

How can you not love that face? I am a large handsome two year old Rotti mix boy but sometimes I think I am a Jack Russell. I like to bounce about when excited. I think I am a puppy sometimes but sometimes I also have a teenager attitude.
Going on bike rides is great fun. I can even pull my mom along when she is tired.
I am a great listener when I want to be and love following direction on command.
My favourite treat is cheese. I would make a wonderful pet for an experienced owner with leadership skills.

Hi folks. We are six year old St. Bernards, well maybe in our own minds. We are adorable, sweet and affectionate Chihuahuas. I'm Shiloh, the white and black one, and that's Violet behind me. We are good with cats and dogs of all sizes. Since we are a bit timid and shy we would do best with a gentle natured family and kids should be over 8 years old. We are best buds having lived together our whole lives.

Update September 29: Shiloh and Violet are having a trial home visit.

Hello! My name is Maui and I'm a stunning young girl at 14 months. I'm learning so much right now and I'm quite a smart cookie! I have learned how to catch a ball and I know some commands too. I would love if you would put me in some training classes so I can keep learning cool stuff! I do have a keen eye for little things that move, so best that I'm not in a home with cats or small dogs. It does take me a while to warm up and I can be a bit picky about my friends, so I prefer to have you all to myself at home and socialize during play time or dog classes. If you are looking for a affectionate ham with the softest fur, then ask to meet me!

I am a busy young lady looking for an active family. My foster mom says I am super intelligent and learn quickly. In fact, I know all my basic commands like sit, stay, down, shake a paw, over,off and leave it. I am still very puppy-like but will respond quickly to correction by a stronger owner. House-training, all handled. Walking on the leash is great fun and I will sit and wait when you stop. I am loyal and protective and will let you know if I hear any strange sounds but I am not a barker.

I would do best with an active family who will make sure I know my boundaries and give me lots of love and attention.
