  • Banjo (1060), Age 2 years 6 months


    Banjo is still a youngster that would like very much to play. He's a little timid but with every trip to daycare, he comes out of his shell just a little bit more. Banjo loves to cuddle but is just a little unsure of whether if it's okay to be that close. He behaves as though he never got to be a puppy and so he doesn't know exactly what to do. Banjo needs a patient guardian that will help him build confidence.

  • Calvin (1057), Age 4 years 0 months


    Calvin is a very quiet basset. He would prefer to lounge rather than rough house but does play some. We suspect he just hasn't found the right playmate, yet. Calvin got to hang out at his foster mom's office one day and he was just perfect! He found a quiet place to curl up and no one heard a peep out of him!

  • Sydney (1021), Age 8 years 9 months


    Sydney is a sweet and loving dog that prefers people to other dogs. She does get along with other dogs but sometimes doesn't like to share. She would make a fantastic companion for walks, snuggling while watching a good movie, or for just hanging out.

Frankie Frankie

Frankie’s been adopted!

The family who adopted one of our Basset Blend Puppies over a year ago has given him a Forever Home! Princess Astrid now has her Prince.

Christine and Josh tell us they’re doing great. Frankie gets around pretty good now. He’ll have to go some to keep up with the Princess but sometimes he just likes to watch her run around the room! Sounds like a perfect match.

Thanks again to everyone who’s been cheering him on and donating for his surgeries. It sure took a village for this little guy.

Please donate!
