Meet Mikey! Mikey is a Chihuahua - Dachshund mix and weighs about 14 lbs. He is about 2 years old and loves loves loves attention... If you look up "lap dog" you would see his picture.
Mikey is up to date on vaccines, microchipped and neutered. His ideal home would be with someone that is home most of the day and will take him out to explore the world. Mikey is a low key guy that gets along with most all other dogs and would do good with cats. Mikey's temporary foster parents say he's such a sweet guy and they're working with him on some marking issues. He knows to go potty outside but he also just wants to let you know that your stuff is also HIS too! haha
Give him a chance and we're telling you....you'll fall in LOVE with him.
Say hello to our sweet girl, Abby. Abby was found wandering alone last month and despite our best efforts, her family was never located. She's a small 10 lb Chihuahua and is about 10 years old. After a vet visit, the vets stated she has a grade 5-6 heart murmur and will need to remain on medication for the rest of her life. She does not display any symptoms and acts like a puppy.
In the meantime, she scored an amazing foster home. She has many fur friends to play with and an amazing mom who loves to take her to her softball practices and hang out with her on the couch. Foster mom says she's a little shadow and follows her all around the house whenever she's home. Abby loves her other dogs and she gets along great with cats too! She's even been around a tortoise!
Not only is she a super duper sweet lady, she LOVES to sleep! How great, right?!
Say hello to this handsome hunk, Sammy!
Sam is a Pitbull Terrier, about 1.5 years old, and 42 lbs. Sam is just the sweetest guy and LOVES every person he's met! All he wants to do is give kisses and go on nice long walks... (oh, how dreamy). Although Sam has a sweet spot for humans, he's not a fan of other dogs OR cats so he needs to be the only pet so he can get all the lovin'.
Sam was checked at the vet and is nice and healthy, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and will be neutered within the next few weeks. He is housebroken, walks well on the leash and knows basic commands. He's got a lot of energy in him so an active family would be best. Could that be you?
Fill out an application today to meet Smiley Sam.
Bruno is a medium sized mixed breed (we think Frenchie-Pit?) and is only 35 lbs! He's young aging between 7 months- 1 year old. This guy is very energetic and loves to run and play. He is super sweet with everyone he meets and gets along with most all other dogs that he's been around. He gets excited and pulls the leash when he sees cats so a cat free home would probably be best.
Since he is still young, he would benefit with some training (potty training, crate training, & chewing).
Bruno is up to date on vaccines and will be scheduled for neuter soon!
Just look at his smile, how can you resist?! Such a heart breaker!
Angel is a sweet mixed breed (we're guessing a Shepherd/Collie mix) who weighs 53 lbs and is about 6-7 years old. Angel was a bit timid when she came in but when she realized we were there to be friends, she warmed up and turned into a fun loving gal. Angel gets super excited when she sees the leash and loves going outside. Unfortunately, her vet visit confirmed that she is Heartworm positive and will require a strenuous treatment. Luckily, Angel is not showing any symptoms of this so we are hopeful for a nice successful recovery, that will be covered by Pooches in Pines $$.
While walking on leash, she is very reactive towards cats and small critters so she'd do best without either of them in a home. Angel seems dog selective so a meet n greet is definitely necessary.
Angel is up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and we believe she is spayed.
