Meet Pooh

We believe Pooh is around 12 years old as of November, 2019 and weighs 10 pounds. She came to us because her family moved and could not take her with them. This girl has a lovely temperament and loves to be around people. She never meets a stranger and gets along great with other dogs. She is crate trained and does well in the house. She loves to be held and talked to and she is still a playful, energetic girl. Pooh is just a happy gal that is looking for her perfect retirement home. She did test positive for heartworms and is currently on the slow kill method which you can google for more information. This is not causing her any health problems. Pooh will be current on all medical (spay, shots, microchip, heartworm and flea prevention.

Meet Cedar

Cedar will be 3 years old March, 2019. He was found wandering a highway and no owner could be found. So, he is now with us at the rescue awaiting his perfect home. Cedar has a great personality with people and loves attention. He has never had any issues with anyone who visits him. He walks on a leash and knows how to sit. He is an energetic boy that would need a nice fenced yard in his new home to give him room to run. He loves to take walks and to meet new people. He would be best as the only dog in the home and a home where he can spend a lot of time outside. Cedar did test light positive for heartworms and is currently on the slow kill method. Overall though, he is a healthy guy ready for his next adventure. He will be current on all medical (neuter, shots, deworming, heartworm and flea prevention).
