IMG_6171Sweet Aurora is looking for a forever home – again. She was happy to see her foster family again and showed her affection by crawling right on to their laps and taking a relaxed snooze. The beauty of foster homes! But, Aurora really needs a forever home. She would probably like an only-dog home. She is in a foster home with other large dogs and does fine but really doesn’t like attempts to play by the other dogs or too much sniffing and nosing. She doesn’t seem to mind the other old dog – they both mind their own business. She is fine with cats. Aurora is around 8 years old and a very good girl. She has great house manners, is house-trained and a gem to have around the home. She is very affectionate and is hoping that her future person will consider her a lap dog. Aurora has some aches and pains and will need some medication and care for achy joints. Aurora is spayed and vaccinated. Please let us know if have a forever place for Aurora.

IMG_9980Maddie is 2 years old (close to 3 this winter) and is a very sweet and loving girl. Maddie is shy at first but quickly comes around with a little affection and love. She is soaking up the love in her new foster home and has made best friends with the preschool-aged child. Their favorite pastime is napping together. Maddie has bad knees – we are discussing options with the vet and have started her on joint supplements and pain management. A forever home without a lot of stairs would be best. Maddie can excite/submissive pee occasionally (although we have seen very little of this so far) and so needs a patient and loving home where this behavior can just be ignored and there is a good chance it will improve. We have started her on some medication for this and we are hoping things will improve for her. Maddie is nervous around new dogs at first but has lived peacefully with canines in the past. She ignores the cats. Most of all, Maddie loves to be close to her person. A good couch snuggle is her dream date. If you are interested in adopting Maddie, please fill out a dog adoption application. Thanks! Let us know if you have any questions.
