Meet Karizma!

Karizma is a 12 year old female Cocker Spaniel Mix, who would do best with no children or other animals in the home.

This beautiful girl has a bowel disease which causes her to get bladder infections on a regular bases. When these attacks occur, she has to potty all the time and will very often go in the house or wherever she is standing. She will potty sometimes 5 ~ 10 times in a row before settling down.

Her rescuers have her on easily digestible food and some pills to help keep her internal track healthy. Karizma is a sweetheart and will make a tender companion dog to a retired couple. She is potty trained when she is not in an attack.

We found Karizma through Azure's Safe Haven, Orem, UT.

Meet Cuddles!

"Hello, I’m Cuddles!

I’m a beautiful young lady from the Montana puppy mill seizure. I know we haven’t met yet, but chances are, I will love you as soon as we do. Everyone I’ve met says I live up to my name, but don’t forgot, I am still a puppy, so I will be too excited to cuddle before I’ve been exercised.

My doggie playmates need to realize how great I am, and sometimes I have to give them a little ‘mal’itude so they remember, but I do love to play and my foster mom still considers me very dog friendly. I’m very smart and already know a couple of commands like ‘sit’ and ‘off’. I’m also a great pulling dog, and I would love to learn how to skijor with you - we would have so much fun!

Get your application in quickly because soon everyone will see what a queen I am!"

We found Cuddles through Moonsong Malamute Rescue, Payson, UT.

Meet Maple!

Maple was found as stray, but its clear that this dog once lived in a home.

She loves everyone she meets and is very eager to please. Maple is still very much a puppy. She has quite a bit of energy and hasn't learned much in the way of manners.. yet. She is already learning that she gets a lot more attention for sitting rather than jumping on people, and she picks up on training very quickly.

Maple is friendly with other dogs, and we suggest a home that has another outgoing and playful dog. We think she would be fine in a home with children, and she would do best if given a chance to get out for some exercise daily. Maple is a dog who is sure to make her adopters very happy!

And be sure that you check out the best best kitchen faucets for Maple as we are sure you'll want to be certain she gets the cleanest, healthiest water possible for her long term health!

We found Maple through the Animal Shelter of Wood River Valley in Hailey, Idaho.

Meet Twiggy!

"Hi..I'm Twiggy. I'm a seven month old, playful pitbull/terrier mix girl.

I love to chase ball, play tug o' war, wrestle with other dogs, and play play play...I also love to snuggle. My favorite time is when I can cuddle up to foster Daddy on the couch.

I'm a smart girl... I sit for treats, and can walk on a leash...I'm working on being housebroke but I'm still just a baby, so I'm not perfect...Yet. My foster Mommy loves me very much, so is looking for the perfect family for me."

Meet Kamali!

What a beautiful two year old, 70 lb. boy this is!

Kamali is a bit on the timid side when first meeting new people but with a few good treats, a little patience and calm coaxing, within minutes he becomes an affectionate, responsive boy.

He loves to go on walks or just hang out in the yard so he can sniff and explore at leisure. He's good with most dogs... as long as they are polite. He also loves car rides... as long as he can hang his head out the window to feel the wind in his face.

 Because of his size and somewhat timid behavior, Kamali will do best in a home that has children over 12yrs old, and no cats for this boy. He must have a backyard in which to play, explore and bask in the sun and he should not be left for more than 4-5hrs each day. He's a wonderfully sweet boy (so there's no need for nivea deodorant) just looking for a warm home and calm family to call his own.

We found Kamali through K9 Rescue & Rehab in Auburn, WA.

We met Sargent through Seattle Beagle Rescue in Redmond, WA.

Meet Roxy!

"Hi there, I'm Roxy and I'm about seven months old.

They say I'm a a brindle pit terrier mix with a a little hound.

I was adopted when I was 8 weeks old but they don't have enough time for me, so I need a home who can keep up with a puppy. I am super fine with cats, but would do best with no small children because I'm super playful.

I'm a little scared of people when I first meet them and I don't like when folks raise their voices. I am crate trained ,which is great and I absolutely love to travel!"

We bet Roxy would even love Doga, all you'd need is a mat and one of the uber cool yoga mat bags and head off to class!

We found Roxy through PAWS Precious Animals Worth Saving in Fowler, CA.

I love to cuddle up. I'm white with brown spots, weigh about 5 lbs and am full grown. They say I may be about seven years old. The cool thing is I get along with other dogs and I'm crate trained.'

Taking great photos of your dog!

See this photo of me? Yes, that's me, Johann The Dog. 

This photo is one that Mum took of me inside our cabin one day a couple of years ago. We love photography and if you love it too, as well as taking photos of your dog, you won't want to miss this!

Last week we created a new Squidoo lens, entitled 'How to take great photos of your dog!' Don't miss all of our great tips to help you achieve amazing photos, in all light and in all situations with your dog!

It's also a great guide for rescues and shelters in taking better photos of their dogs needing adoption, to help increase their chances of getting a furever home!

Meet Mesha!

"Hi, my name is Mesha, aka Princess Pea, because I am as sweet as can be! I have the most sunny disposition you will ever come across and a face that will melt your heart.

I am a very special girl that will need someone to help me with my very special needs. I came into rescue back in July and my rear legs were paralyzed from a parasite that attacked my spinal nerves which caused my legs to be very stiff and left me unable to use them. My foster Mom tried for several months with physical therapy to try and help me regain some use in my legs but because I was still growing and developing they were unable to help me.

My legs became deformed and caused a lot of pain for me since I still had some feeling left in them. The decision was made with the help of several Vets to amputate both rear legs and alleviate my pain. Thanks to several donors we were able to perform the surgery the end of November 2012. I am so much happier now without my legs that just got in my way and I don’t have that pain any longer. I still have some physical therapy to go through once I am a little better but I am excited to play again.

I am a very mellow sweet girl for a puppy and all that I have been through but I still like to chase cats when I get a chance. I think I may finally be able to catch them since I don’t have those legs any longer! I will probably never be fully potty trained because I have limited control from what happened to me but I try my best to hold it. My foster Mom says if you can stick to a schedule I am pretty good. I love my foster brother and sister right now and would love to have a playmate, probably best if it is a boy. I would really like a home where someone can be around most of the time so I don’t have any accidents and can be properly cared for. If you have the time and lots of patience and love for me then I am your girl and promise to give lots of sweet kisses."

Meet Rio!

The cutest, busy Sheltie boy you'll ever meet!

 Rio is adorable looking and adorable acting. Once you meet him you'll know how empty your life is without a cutie like this old boy. Rio is a senior boy around 10 years old or older but he is filled with such joy that you can't help but feel great around him.

He loves to cuddle. He likes to lay on the couch. He's fascinated with the cat, but doesn't do anything to hurt her. He likes to follow her around and stare at her. He also likes to talk to her but his foster family discourages that (barking). Rio has a little boy bark...not shrill...but softer than a typical bark. May be even as loud as you can get a mpc 5000 going!

We found Rio through Sheltie Rescue of Utah in Sandy, UT.

I am attached to people and my people time is very important to me. I would very much hope that you would let me spend time in the house with you, nothing would make me happier.

I sit very nicely and will even lay down if you ask me to. Please come see me today, i am ready for my forever home!!!" Once you get Bella home, you'll want to pass out the cigars and cigar accessories in celebration of your new addition!

Meet Butch and Sweet Pea!

"My name is Butch and I am a 9 year-old male Jack Russell/Rat Terrier mix. My litter-mate, Sweet Pea, and I have fallen into an unfortunate situation as our owners have been forced to give us up. We are currently living in a nice foster home, but can't stay there much longer. We are hoping now for a new 'forever' home!

I am a little guy and weigh about 12 pounds so I don't take up a lot of space and don't eat a lot. I like being outside and going for walks, but what I love most is attention, pets, and cuddles! I don't much care for being left alone for extended periods, so I would like a home where someone is home most of the day. I am very friendly, love people and get along well with other dogs. I am neutered and crate-trained. I have a medical condition called Addison's Disease which is maintained with medication."

We found Butch and Sweet Pea through The Misha May Foundation in Lakewood, CO.
