Bella is a female Shiba Inu, estimated about 6-8 years old and 30lbs. She was rescued (with several others) from a puppy mill in Wisconsin. We are currently working with Bella on her adjustment to life outside the mill and sometimes it can be a bit of a process. She is a sweet, sweet girl, very timid, but with time and love, she will be a great companion. We have confirmed that Bella has had trauma to both of her ACL's and due to that, she will do better with a low key environment...the kind with a comfy couch and some extra pillows will do she says! :) We do not know the level of trauma she once suffered, but for now she's managing fine with a pain med as needed and a daily joint supplement. Bella will be ready for adoption in the coming weeks and during this time we do encourage questions on our sweet momma! We just love her...so will you!
Meet Puff! This man is Mr. Personality! He's so fun loving and full of joy...what a doll! You see, Puff is 13 years old and spent most of that living in an outdoor kennel with little coverage from the elements. He and Hazel (who he shared this outdoor space with) were severely neglected. However you would never know Puff lived so many years like that. As one of our volunteers said, he's a refined, older gentleman. We just love Puff! He wants to be by your side almost all the time and will do anything for a treat! Hey, he's making up for lost time and of course we let him! Puff would not do well in a home with a cat or another dog that is smaller than him, due to his prey drive. As long as your dog is willing to share their treats, I'm sure Puff would enjoy their company. Don't forget, we always require a meet and greet with your pup prior to adoption. We are treating one of Puff's eyes for glaucoma. He requires 2 different eye drops, twice daily. At this time, surgery to remove the eye is not required, but monitoring the eye pressure is something that will certainly be necessary. Puff would really like a home that has the love to give and understanding to offer. As a senior, he's doing very well and is pretty active, but I'm sure your couch will be a wonderful place to lay his head and dream about the good life he now has. Call us with any questions about Puff!
We are listing Violet as special needs because she is still so very shy and will really need proper time and adjustment with her future adopters. We hope to really impress upon possible applicants, that while Violet is a very beautiful Shiba and everyone who meets her falls in love instantly, that she needs time. As listed below, Violet came to us from a massive commercial breeding facility and due to the fact she had very little human interaction, she is taking her time to learn about her human counterparts. She is inquisitive, especially if you have treats, but she goes at her own pace. Violet did get a trial run with a family and while her humans were wonderful, patient, kind, loving (everything that she needs), she did not adjust the best to her new fursister. From this, we learned that Violet will do best with a happy go lucky, goofy type of dog. One that is confident, but relaxed and yet a tad silly.**
Violet is a female Shiba Inu, about 6-8 yrs old. She along with several others, were rescued from a puppy mill in Wisconsin. We are currently working with Violet to bring out her confidence. We see it, it's in there! She gets very excited when she sees someone she knows and has a spunky little strut! While we are diligently working on leash training, we think she will catch on soon. Violet will also be spending some extended time with one of our trainers, Ali. Lessons on how to be a dog, we will call them! Violet is a petite girl and learning to love. She would do very well in a home with another dog, but we do require a meet and greet. Violet will be up for adoption in a few weeks, but please feel free to ask us any questions! This girl deserves the best!
Meet Ruby! This 10 yr old Bichon is looking for a quiet , loving retirement home! She loves her foster family and is ready for a family of her own! Loves walks, snuggles, and treats!
Her hair is still growing back from having to be shaved. She was in bad shape when she was surrendered to us! Matted fur, horribly long nails!
Will you be her soft place to land forever?
