Thank you for your interest in adopting a dog through Izzy's Place! We are 100% volunteer and are dedicated to saving senior dogs of all breeds/mixes, shapes and size! We are a foster-based rescue, which means we do not have a facility. Each dog resides in a loving foster home until adopted. Adoption fees range from $100-$250 depending on the age, health & expected future medical expenses taken on by the adopter & merely help to offset a bit of the cost to give each of them the wonderful lives they deserve. 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. We have a very thorough application process to ensure each dog is placed in the most appropriate home. 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, fellow rescue organizations and shelters. Thank you for thinking Senior Dog Rescue!
Mercedes....black lab/newfie mix....sweeter than sugar!
Who's sweeter than sugar? ME! My name is MERCEDES and my foster Dad says you will likely never meet another dog as sweet or happy as me! I'm always up for a walk, snacks, watching football with you, snacks, playing tug, snacks, an afternoon nap, snacks....did I mention I like snacks? Did you say Car Ride? I'm ready! I love car rides so much the car doesn't even have to be moving. The only thing I love more than snacks and car rides is spending sunrise to sunset with my humans. I understand you might have to leave sometimes so I'll hang out in my crate and wait for you to come home. I get lonely if you're gone a lot so I hope my new family is either retired or works from home. I've got a lot of love to give and life to live and don't want to miss out on each moment with you! I get along great with my foster brothers, cats are ok too. Did I mention how healthy I am? The vet gave me a clean bill of health. All I need is an inexpensive pill each day to help with my arthritis so I can continue to enjoy my 1-2 mile long walks. I can't hear very well but my nose works just fine(that's how I sniff out all those snacks). So, if you're looking for the sweetest older lady around who's willing to eat cookies on the couch with you while you rub my belly, look no further than me!
Buddy(aka Bubba)....Pointer-x.....so handsome(and camera-shy:)
Can you say 'svelte'? Ok, maybe I'm not slim and trim yet but I'm on my way to getting my beach body back. My previous owners fed me a little too much(ok, they fed me way too much) and exercised me too little(ok, not much at all) but since coming to my foster home I've lost weight thanks to a healthy diet and lots of FUN exercise. I LOVE taking walks, going to dog parks and joining my foster brother for Squirrel Patrol....hey, somebody has to protect the home from those pesky squirrels. I haven't caught any but I sure do love chasing them from the yard...and they love teasing me from the trees above. I share my foster home with two other senior dogs and previously lived with dogs from 8 lbs to 100 lbs so I'm good with all furry friends. I even adore cats. I haven't lived with kids much but the ones I've met have been really nice to me so I liked them too. By the way, my name was Bubba when I came to rescue but my foster mama said that wasn't dignified enough. Plus, I want to be everyone's Buddy so that's my new name...BUDDY! new name for my new life! I'm a healthy 10 yr young Blue Heeler-mix and I would love to be your best Buddy....got room in your life for me?
Snickers....this sweet little Dachsund will melt your heart!
Hello! I'm Snickers and I am a cute little peanut wrapped in caramel and chocolate, you know, just like the candy bar(although my foster mom says I'm sweeter than ANY candy bar ever!). I dance in delight each and every day now - even when I go to the vet! But before coming to rescue my person brought me to a shelter in TX (they said they had to move and couldn't take me - not like I take up much room, right?). That shelter place was scary! It was noisy and all I wanted to do was hide in the corner of my cage. I was even too scared to eat, plus I had lots of rotten teeth and it hurt to eat so I got really skinny. Since coming to my foster home I've gained healthy weight and you can barely see my ribs sticking out anymore! I get to eat yummy food and my coat is now shiny and I have lots of energy again. Plus, I got to visit a really nice vet and she fixed my broken teeth and now I have no more pain. To show how excited I am to be able to eat again I even get into my cute little beg position and oh, how my foster mom smiles when I do that!! haha! it works because she can't resist giving me treats! I'm spunky and playful and love doing my zoomies! But I'm a 'mature' boy so you won't have to worry about me chewing your shoes or other silly puppy antics. I know my manners, am house-trained and happy to curl up and keep your chair or bed warm while you're at work. And that's just one of my many talents! I share my foster home with several other small dogs(we may be little but we totally hog the whole couch!!). We all love each other and I'd be happy to share my furever home with other small dogs but I would also be perfectly happy being your one and only. To sum it up, I love car rides, people, other dogs, sleeping next to my person and am open to whatever other wonderful things my new life brings my way! I'm only about 10-11 years old and for all of you who know about us Doxies we can typically live to be 18-20 years old so if you're interested in adopting me please be sure you can commit to all those years. PS: thanks for checking me out! I know my furever family is out there somewhere!
Meet Ron(previously Dexter)....cutie-patootie! ***Pending medical review***
Look at those ears! Ron is alert, active and attentive as any good Shiba Inu(mix) is. He's a petite 20 lbs and cute as can be. Ron is a soulful older man with wonderful manners, a true gentleman and his foster parents have never even heard him bark. In the home he is mellow but outdoors he loves to explore the yard and especially loves his daily walks. And he LOVES playing with squeaky toys! He shares his foster home with 2 cats, 2 bunnies and 2 guinea pigs. He's wonderful with the dog-savvy cats and has been good while supervised around the bunnies and guinea pigs. Ron has had some play dates with other small-medium dogs and is great with them, however, he is intimidated by large dogs. Ron loves everyone he meets and everyone at the vet office fell head over heels in love with him. Dr Altman said he is just the sweetest little guy ever. He wagged his tail and explored the office, making lots of new friends there. He has arthritis in his back, which likely was untreated for quite sometime. With medication for the arthritis he is now much more comfortable and able to enjoy even longer walks. He's not a fan of stairs so a one-level home would be best for this little man. Ron is about 13-14 years old. This wonderful guy has so much love to share and looks forward to finding a furever home where he can be spoiled and loved as he deserves. ***We currently have Ron on Medical Hold. Tests show he has kidney disease and we are working with our vet to determine the level of KD***
