Thank you for your interest in our available dogs. We like to get to know the dogs in our care prior to posting them for adoption so if you do not see the dog you are looking for, feel free to put an interest form in telling us what you are looking for in a forever friend. We love to "match-make" and we may have a dog that is not yet posted that is perfect for you. Once we have an interest form from you, one of our staff will contact you (in 7 - 10 days) to discuss your needs in detail as well as the dog(s) you are interested in.
Please note, if you are unable to see the pictures of our dogs, your browser may not be up to date.
I am named after Xena's goofy sidekick from the 90's tv show. There is even a song about me if you google it, and it pretty much sums up my personality! I am silly, snuggly, smart and very handsome. I know my basic obedience cues and a few tricks like paw and roll over. I am crate trained and can happily spend the night in there, or rest safely while you are out of the house. I am housebroken but can always benefit from wearing one of my special diapers when introduced to a brand new house or around a new piece of furniture, once i know the space i no longer need the belly band! I am very easy to exercise. I LOVE my walks! I may pull at first, but I typically relax after I go potty. A 20-30 minute walk and some playtime and I'm set! Although I love to play and explore, I spend most of my time snoozing and love pets and cuddles. I do tend to bark at sounds and people/animals from the window, and storms make me anxious. I am smart and food motivated so there is still room for me to grow! I was diagnosed with IMHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia) when I was about 3 years old, but I am doing great with a special diet!
Color: White - with Black
Age: 8 years
I do need some time to warm up to new people, and being given treats from new friends certainly helps! If you let me lead the interaction, I tend to warm up quicker.
I am not a fan of cats; however, I love to play and chill with other dogs that are not too big and intimidating, and respect my boundaries.
Although I have grown up with kids in my current home, young children make me very anxious. I am at my best behavior and most content around adults and/or responsible teenagers.
Fetch and tug-of-war are my favorite games but I love soft toys and squeaky balls too. I cannot have antlers or bones since I have broken teeth on them in the past. You can also give me kong toys that let me find some hydrolyzed protein-friendly treats! I also have a fondness for tissues. You may want to close your bathroom doors to keep me from helping myself to your wastebaskets.
Put me in a fenced yard and I'll show you my sweet Whippet running skills! My dream would be to have a dog sibling that I could play and socialize with every day. I would do best with a home that has at least one person that works from home or is home for most of the day. I need to eat prescription kibble and take a pill every morning for the rest of my life in order to stay in remission. Once in a blue moon my face may break out in hives. I do look rather adorable and resemble a duck, but a regimen of Benadryl for several days is all I need. My vet visits over time have slowed down, but I do need to have my blood checked a few times a year, just to stay on top of my health. I really have a lot of love and companionship to give to the right family for me.
