Find Your New BFF!
Obviously Fluffy is not real, but for those of you who want a REAL dog, one that will be your loyal companion and lifelong protector, one that will love you unconditionally until its last breath, we have some wonderful dogs who would love to meet you!
The simple truth is -- no dog is instantly perfect. If you want a dog that will never bark, jump, dig, chew, has perfect manners, and is 100% house-trained on day one, then please adopt Fluffy (or one like her).
A rescued dog can bring a lifetime of love and devotion, but in the beginning some may require a little extra effort on your part. Some of these dogs have been abandoned, abused, starved, hit by cars, or simply neglected by the humans they once trusted. Their worlds have been turned upside down beyond their ability to understand, and most will require some time to adjust. Some may need a refresher course in house-training. And, after being abandoned, some may have separation issues and will need help to feel secure.
It may take two weeks or it may take six months, but these issues can all be overcome with a little love and patience (and we're always here to help in any way we can). You will then have your perfect dog, and a true Best Friend Forever.
If you wish to sponsor Fluffy, your donation will help the real dogs in our care, and is tax deductible. (Donate) Thank you for your support!
Tyson is a darling little Cairn Terrier who is about 2 years old and weighs 9 pounds. He's an affectionate little guy and not a yapper like some terriers. He's very attentive, smart, and great on leash. He loves long walks and is also great in the car.
Tyson gets along with other small dogs but is a little scared of the big ones. Tyson loves to be around his person but is not demanding of attention. He's happy to chill on his bed with a chewie. He has that great combination of independence and yet is also affectionate.
We've recently discovered that Tyson is fearful of men and will growl and try to bite. His foster mom is working with him, using her brother, and Tyson will only accept treats from him if he is sitting on the floor and not looking at him. So, for now, we will be looking for a female-only home for Tyson.
Tyson would be happiest as the only dog in the home and, if there are kids, that they're teenage or older.
FOSTER HOMES NEEDED!
You will have input as to who adopts him because you will know him better than anyone. The best part of fostering is that if you happen to fall in love with the dog you are fostering, you have first choice to adopt!
If you think you might like to give fostering a try, please complete the Volunteer form and we will be in touch! Thank you!
