"Maggie" labradoodle
2 yrs   spayed female

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! WE HAVE NOW RECEIVED THE FUNDS NEEDED TO HELP MISS MAGGIE!. She came into our program with her LabraDoodle siblings in desperate shape and in need of lots of medical attention. Siblings have been adopted but poor Maggie is waiting for a surgical procedure. When coming to us, she was so completely matted that her "entropion eye" condition wasn't noticed until she was shaved down and the eye infections were found. Her entropion eye is where the lower eyelids roll inward and the lashes continually irritate and rub against her eye. You know how bad it feels when you have something in your eye and you can't get it out! That's the painful uncomfortable feeling that Maggie experiences daily. We are able to clean her eyes daily to keep the infection down. WE HAVE NOW BEEN ABLE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR THIS SURGERY DUE TO YOUR GENEROSITY!!! Will let you know once his operation is complete and he is available for adoption. Contact

"Teddy" aka Theo - cur mix
1 yr   neutered male

Teddy, aka Theo has come a long way from when we got him months ago. He was the less confident of the 2 siblings but since he is in a steady situation, he seems quite at ease. You put him into a new environment and he is still uncertain but it doesn't take long for him to loosen up! He gets along fine with the other dogs in his foster home so far and loves to play with those that want to play with him! He does have energy and would love to have a playmate that can match his energy. He seems fine in a crate and seems to think of it as his safehouse. Goes into it all night long with no question. Doing good on his housebreaking. Teddy seems to have an initial fear of men and steers clear of the man of the household. He will tolerate being petted by a man but clearly, he would prefer to spend his time with the foster mom. He is now starting to sit beside him and takes treats from him. Walks on a leash and does well. 40 pounds. Once he loves you, you are his very favorite!!!! Teddy deserves a permanent home! Contact

"Opie" terrier mix
1 yr   neutered male

Opie has come so far since he came to us about a year ago! He is healthy and alert and ready for action! He loves to play but can be a bit rough so best with bigger, playful dogs. He is ok on a leash and wants nothing more than to be a part of a permanent family! About 40-45 pounds. Loves people! Contact
