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)....heeler-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?
Jack the Wonder Dog! Miniature Bull Terrier/Jack Russell...a true comedian
Well, if I am not the ray of sunshine in your life, I don't know what is! I'm a Miniature Bull Terrier/Jack Russell Terrier mix and 19 lbs of pure love! Hello, I'm JACK and yes I am a Wonder Dog! I'm energetic, playful and a total comedian! I love a good game of fetch and a brisk walk, but curling up on a comfy dog bed in the evening is also on my top 10 fave things to do. I fooled my foster mom into giving me extra treats....how? because I know all my basic commands , she says I do a perfect sit-stay and down, and for bonus points I tilt my head just a little so she sees my best side and she can't resist my 'adorable-ness'. The first day at my foster home I met the other dogs and they're bigger than me but we get along just fine. We share toys and all that and there's lots of love to go around here. No one knows my true age but based on my energy level and overall good health they say I'm around 6-7 years young. Who cares about age anyway? it's just a silly number and I've got lots of life to live so who's gonna join me?
Sophie....black lab....a gentle, well-mannered lady - Adoption Pending
FREE HUGS! My name is Sophie and I love hugging my humans! I love leisurely walks, napping in the cool green grass and belly rubs! I have impeccable housemanners, know basic commands and will even shake paws(especially if you have a treat for me:). I'm an easy-going gal and nothing much ruffles my feathers. I like other dogs but would be perfectly content as an only dog too. Cats are ok in my world and respectful children too. I'm about 8-10 years young and am so excited to spend the best years of my life with YOU!
Peppy the Poo....7-8 years young and lookin' for love! Adoption Pending!
I am Peppy the Poo and I am looking for l'amour(that's love in French...tee hee hee:). Unlike Pepe Le Pew(that silly cartoon skunk), I smell lovely(especially after my recent spa day) and do not need to douse myself with silly cologne to attract love. In fact, everyone that meets me falls head over heels in love as soon as they see me. The girls love my long eyelashes and big brown soulful eyes. But there's more to me than just my good looks...oh yes, I have huge personality and lots of love to give. I love car rides, cuddling on a comfy lap and running super fast zoomies in the yard(and in the house too!). I like other dogs but would be perfectly happy as your one and only too. I have to admit I am not a big fan of cats or small kids. I would be much happier with adults who will spoil me rotten like I deserve. So, you might be wondering why I am in rescue if I am so perfect....I was very much loved by my people. My human mom died a few years ago and my beloved human dad just recently passed away. That left me homeless and I was pretty scared. I heard people talking about taking me to a shelter and I don't know what that is but it doesnt sound good for a boy like me. Thankfully I was welcomed as a foster dog at Izzy's Place and I'll stay in my foster home until I find the right furever family to adopt. I'm in excellent health, up to date on vet care, neutered, and I take my heartworm preventive meds each month. I'm young at heart and looking for l'amour....if interested please email Nicole at email@example.com or submit the Adoption Application to get started. The good folks at Izzy's Place have a very thorough application process and I appreciate that...and we appreciate your patience too. love, Peppy the Poo
Snickers(previously known as Frosty)....this sweet little Dachsund will melt your heart!
Snickers is an adorable little guy who is doing very well in his foster home. He had a big scare before that though....his family dropped him off at a kill-shelter in TX because they were moving. This poor little guy must've been terrified in the noisy shelter and his days there were numbered, but we're super excited that he's with us now and is safe and loved. He shares his foster home(and the couch and the chair and the bed....:) with several other small breed dogs and gets along great with them all. He's very well-mannered and is cute as can be when he sits on his hind end and begs with his front paws for treats. How can anyone resist? Snickers enjoys car rides, yummy soft treats and cuddling with his foster mama. We're not sure why but he is missing part of his bottom jaw and recently had dental surgery to remove several rotten teeth(so we're guessing he wasn't privvy to good vet care in the past). He does just fine on a soft diet, enjoys being spoonfed and has a healthy appetite. He visited one of our vets for a thorough check up and everyone there fell in love with him. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and is good health. We'll be posting more updates as his foster mom gets to know him better. In the meantime, if you'd like more info please email Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete and submit the Adoption Application at the top of this page for review.
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 & 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 neutered, up to date on vaccinations and had dental surgery prior to coming to rescue. He is heartworm negative and on monthly heartworm preventive meds, which we recommend for all of our fosters and adopted dogs. We don't know Ron's true age. The shelter told us he was 7-8 years old, however, after a thorough exam, we're quite sure he's closer to 12-14 years old. But, hey, age is just a number anyway. 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. If you would like more info on Ron please email us at email@example.com. ****NOTE: 7/28/15 update - Ron is currently being evaluated by one of our vets. Please check back for updates ****
