Greyson

Greyson

Fostered in SA Area

Let me introduce you to a VERY handsome whippet boy. Grayson is 5 years old. He is white with fawn brindle markings. Up-to-date on all his vaccines & neutered. He has pawesome house manners. He will ring the poochie bells to alert you of his potty needs.

In Grayson’s own words. I am a lover. I give tons of kisses. I sit like I’m posing for a statue on command & will also shake your hand like a true gentleman. I love everyone – well at least humans.

I was a solo act for 5 years so I’m still learning how to be part of a pack. I sometimes try to join in the fun but most times I get a bit scared of it. Because of being a solo act and being crated a lot – I have some issues with separation anxiety. For that reason I would prefer to not be any only dog and have pet parents that aren’t gone all day long. I am finally realizing that being crated for a few hours is not all that bad.

I love to play ball once I get comfortable with my surroundings. Once my leash comes out I get excited for walks and/or car rides. I’m still pulling my leash on walks – but Mom feels I’m getting better each day. I love going to the park too! Since I’m not a big fan of my crate my foster Mom lets me sleep in my dog bed on the floor on her side of the bed. I’m so relieved that I lay down and get covered up with my favorite blanket & off to sleep I go!

I’m such a handsome and good boy – you will wonder how you ever lived without me. Foster Mom tells me all the time how wonderful I am!

Ada

Ada

This little Rootie Tootie is looking for a loving home to call her own.

Ada aka “The Boss” is an 8 year young, and full of energy IG/Chi mix weighing in at 6.91 pounds. At times she can be very vocal, and by vocal I mean; she does not have a problem telling another animal BIG or small the quick rundown of the “RULES” of her house. Which if you are able to keep from laughing, good luck with trying to catch her as she whizzes by you in a huff. Really in all honestly, she can get a little bent out of shape when new dogs are around, but at her size; who wouldn’t?

 

She’s a pint size ball of love and has the best personality full of her Ada-isms as my daughter likes to say. She does a great rendition of a prancing Clydesdale horse when she gets excited. It really is the cutest thing ever!

She does not like to be held, but loves to cuddle, lay in the sun, and has a great appetite. She does well in a crate, and has good potty habits.

Ada is ready to find a family that can show her love and what being apart of a family is all about. Do you have room for this little love bug in your home?

Bella

Bella

Bella has been a wonderful addition to our foster family. She is very energetic and loves attention.

She quickly began to run and play with all her housemates and loves to play fetch. When she’s not running at full speed through the backyard, she patrolling the perimeter to keep the other critters out of her yard. She is sweet and affectionate. She will let you know when she needs some love by gently nibbling on your toes or fingers… Just reminding you she is there.

Bella would make a great addition to any type of household. Multiple housemates or solo, she would fit in very quickly.

Marcus

Marcus

 

Here stands Marcus. Marcus Brave & Good.

Found abandoned in a sticker and fire ant field. Scared and weak, he braved the pain.

Then a guardian angel swooped him up and saved his life.

Marcus, we believe, was a stud in a puppy mill.

He shows the horrors of mistreatment with the deep scars of constraints, harnesses, & belly bands.

Such abuse resulted in the loss of his fur.
So cruelly treated, he seemed surprised to receive a loving touch.

Marcus is blind, toothless and hard of hearing, yet he is aware of his surroundings.
Intelligent and with quiet dignity he taught himself his paths.

Marcus endured much suffering, yet he never lost his gentleness and grace.
So here stands Marcus. Marcus Brave & Good.

Gambit

Gambit

Do you like Pina Coladas? Getting lost in the rain? If you’re not into yoga? If you have half a brain well, then I’m the dog for you!

Hi, my name is Gambit and my foster parents assure me I am *wonderful*. I don’t actually like Pina Coladas but I love love love to go for walks. Seriously. If I think there is a chance of a walk I will go get my leash (and I can pick it out from my foster brother’s leashes) and will even try to put it on my self!

Really, I don’t mean to boast but I’m not only good looking but I’m pretty smart too. I’m also 99% house broken (look, we *all* have accidents and mine tend to happen if I don’t get let outside enough), I’m friendly and laid back and get along great with other Iggies. Heck, I even get along with the cat.

What else can I tell you? Hmmm, I’m five years old and weigh 24 pounds. I’m quite the leaper and jumper. Before I came to my foster family I spent a *lot* of time locked in my kennel so I’m really looking for a family to join where I will be able to share my boundless affection with you (in other words, I really am not looking to spend hours in a crate again). I’m really not needy at all but I do *love* to cuddle up with people. And did I mention I like cuddling and going for walks?

Mae

Little Miss Mae has come into her own! Originally named MayDay, after a few weeks with her we realized we were spelling her name wrong. She was obviously named after Mae West, the beautiful, petite, intelligent and strong-minded leading lady of films like “I’m No Angel” and “Every Day’s a Holiday.” This little girl certainly lives up to her namesake!
