Welcome! Meet our Adoptable Dogs!
If you are interested in more information about any of our adoptable dogs, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the Adoption Application to begin the process. You may also want to check out our Courtesy Cross posts. In effort to help save more seniors we cross post for individuals that are looking to rehome their dogs, as well as, supporting fellow rescue organizations and shelters.
PS: if you are looking for a specific size, breed/mix, etc and you don't see an adoptable dog that fits your lifestyle please email Nicole at email@example.com. We would be happy to network with other rescues and owners rehoming their seniors to help find a match for your family.
Snickers is my name and making you smile is my game!
My foster mom giggles with delight when I stand up to beg for my treats and oh, how I love to dance to show how happy I am now. I'm a mature gentleman so I like to play a bit but then perfectly happy to curl up and take a nap. I love car rides and would love to join you while you do errands or visit friends. I don't take up much room so you can take me pretty much anywhere with you. Or I'll happily nap at home and then greet you with a happy wiggle when you come home. I'm a really great cuddler and love to snuggle under the blankets. I settled easily into my foster home, that I share with several other small dogs and we all get along just fine, although I'd be happy as your one and only too. Not much is known about my past so I don't know why, but one day my ex-person took me to a very scary place he called a shelter. I was so petrified there that I didn't eat, was losing weight, became depressed and not doing well at all. I heard them say I was on "the list". I wasn't sure what the list was but it didn't sound good at all. A kind shelter volunteer let Izzy's Place know about me and I was no longer on that list(turns out that was a list of dogs to be euthanized). Soon I was on a plane, leaving TX behind and arriving in sunny Colorado, being welcomed by my foster mom. When I met my foster mom I knew life would be wonderful again! She took me to a vet for a good check up and although I needed to gain some weight I got a clean bill of health. Just one little thing I have to admit, I'm kind of embarrassed, but I and often dribble when eating. You see, when I arrived my foster mom noticed part of my bottom jaw was missing. She fed me by hand and helped me gain some healthy weight. The vet had to pull the rest of my rotten teeth but I still have a healthy appetite so nothing gets in my way now! I can eat soft food on my own but sometimes I need help and my foster mom feeds me by hand or with a spoon. Although no one knows my true age, the vet estimates I'm about 9-12. I feel full of life, am energetic but not rambunctious, happy, healthy and looking forward to finding my furever family. I'm so happy to have a loving foster home but I'd really love to have a FUREVER home of my own for the holidays. If you're interested in applying to adopt me please submit a completed Adoption Application. For more info please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (PS: I'd be happiest in an adult-only home and I'm not a fan of rambunctious puppies)
Meet Ron aka Cutie-Patootie!
How could anyone not fall in love with this face? As his foster mom says "I luv ur face"! And talk about personality? Ron is the definition of overflowing personality! Ron is sweet, sassy, calm, playful and silly all rolled into one little furball. He loves his naps(and since he can't hear well he will sleep thru pretty much anything....except when something's cooking in the kitchen - his nose works overtime:). He enjoys a good game of tug o war with a favorite toy, squeaky toys and chasing chipmunks and squirrels in the yard. He's only 25 lbs but has HUGE personality! He easily settled into his foster home, with two other doggie brothers, a sassy cat and even a guinea pig. Even though he's good with other dogs his foster parents feel he would be happy as an only dog in a home where his family was home often, perhaps a retired person/couple that would dedicate lots of time to him. So you ask, what are Ron's fave things? People, walks, exploring the yard and treats! Daily walks are important since when he came to rescue his back legs were atrophied - daily walks have helped rebuild the muscle and he sure does LOVE his walks! Ron came to us from a TX shelter so we don't know his past but our vets guess he is about 12-14 years old but don't let his age scare you as this guy is full of life and has lots of love to give. Ron is good with free roam of the house, loves to snuggle in bed with his foster parents, steals toys from his doggie foster brothers and does the cutest playbow to encourage them to play chase. When Ron came to us he visited one of our vets for the usual thorough exam, he had several teeth pulled(hence the toothless grin:) and we learned he has kidney disease. Please don't let this scare you away! He's doing awesome on a prescription food and LOVES his low-protein treats. After a few months in rescue his health is better than ever and we expect him to continue living a wonderful, healthy and happy life now that he's on a proper diet.
