Joey

Joey

Joey is a beautiful seal and white 8 year old IG about 12 pounds. He is very affectionate and loves people and other dogs. He was Mr. Personality at the Dog Communicator function we took him to – found out that he wants to be a therapy dog. He would be good as an only dog or with a family with kids. We are working on some commands. He loves to cuddle and sleeps with his person every night. He cuddles with his siblings of the house and is not aggressive. He would do best in a family where someone was home during the day. He will go in his crate but prefers to just be on the couch. He deserves a great forever home here in Texas where we all love him and other IGs.

Murphy

Murphy

Murphy4

Murphy2

Meet Murphy, a sweet 3 year old boy (DOB 5-11-11). Murphy is a very calm, relaxed boy and he loves to be in your lap or snuggled close. He has undergone extensive testing (Heartworm, CBC, Bile Acids, Electrolytes, Urinalysis, ACTH and Thyroid) it was all negative. By ruling out other medical issues, Murphy was diagnoses with Anti-Diuretic Hormone Deficiency (ADH) and takes Desmopressin hormone injections 1-2 times a day. Although Murphy will be on medication the rest of his life, the prognosis is excellent. (The best way to understand is to compare ADH to Thyroid Deficiency, where a dog takes thyroid pills every day.)

All he needs now is lots of love, hugs and play time with other dogs. He is crate trained for when you need to leave the house. Murphy needs to go out every few hours to eliminate and he wears a belly band indoors to keep him from marking.

Sasha

Sasha
Sasha is a 7-yr old petite little black beauty and weighing 10 to 11 pounds.

Since Sasha has spent most of her life in a crate, she is a bit overwhelmed
by her big new surroundings, but is gaining more confidence and becoming
more comfortable each day, in the few weeks she has been in our foster care.

Although she hasn’t directly engaged in any play or snuggle time with her
canine housemates, she is slowly starting to show interest. On the other
hand, she has never met a human that she doesn’t love, especially MEN.

Sasha will follow her people all around the house, and when it’s time to
lounge on the couch, she will be right there with us, curled up into a tiny
ball in our laps.

Sasha is housebroken, loves to go on walks, and does fine on car rides.
Even though her figure is slim, she has a healthy appetite, and currently
has no health issues.

It appears that her ideal adopters will have someone at home most of the
time, as she tends to suffer from mild separation anxiety. She would be
fine as an only pet, or with other mild-mannered animals. If you are
looking for a tiny little sidekick to love and adore you and your family,
Sasha just may be the one.

Sasha has not been around cats, but has been with children 4 and older and
seems to do well.
