Vino is a 15 lbs, 5 year old Red and white male fostered in Lubbock, Texas.
Looking for: A family with which to share my love and awesomeness.
Vino is an owner release along with his sister Bella due to declining health of their previous owner. My foster family has been a great place to receive the care and love I need. I was comfortable from the beginning and did not have separation issues when Bella went to another foster home.
I am affectionate, willing to please, and a 95% good boy. I’m a fast learner.
I love, love, love to go for walks. I can’t get enough sniffing time and there is so much to see! My foster mom is working on my staying by her and not needing to zigzag. BUT it is so FUN to go for a walk!
I am very friendly with other dogs, but have never been around cats so don’t know what I’d do. I’m thrilled to play with kids… adults too. Sit down and I’ll be there in case you need to pet me and talk to me. Or I’ll relax nearby on the couch, a chair or dog bed. I don’t really tend to join the Iggy piles.
Car rides and visiting pet friendly stores are high on my list of favorite things to do. Along with going for walks and playing with other dogs. Did I mention I love to smell everything when I am on walks? Simple pleasures. I’m a simple dog.
My favorite place to sleep at night is in my crate in my cozy bed (open door). I will grace you with my presence in bed if you want, but I will probably head back to the crate once you have fallen asleep. Then I’ll be back in the morning so you will see me first thing and just in time for breakfast. Can you think of a better way to start the day? Well, besides going for a walk?
I know there is someone out there that is looking for me. Meanwhile, I’ll be happy here and wait patiently for you to find me.
Annie is a petite senior girl about 10 years old. She loves being in the same room as you but just doesn’t need to be on your lap or beside you to be content. She even prefers her doggie bed at the end of the mattress rather than being under the covers as does a typical Iggy.
Food motivated, kennels well but is very timid. That is another way of saying she is an extreme flight risk if frightened. Would probably do well in a quiet family setting with those who will be patient, loving and vigilant. She will return the love.
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.
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 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.

The best word to describe these senior girls is “sweet.” These former AKC Show dogs are intelligent, cheerful, well-mannered sisters who have been well-trained, socialized and well-cared for. They are fun, but not high-energy.
Dezi is the most precious, loving, well-mannered being that I’ve had since I started fostering. Since the day we picked him up he has shown us nothing but love and affection even through all his pokes, scrapes, pinches and not to mention doses of medications. Continue reading
