SPECIAL NEEDS DOGS

This page is dedicated to our dogs with special medical or behavioral needs. As a no-kill rescue, we make a lifelong commitment to every animal that comes through our doors and some of these animals require ongoing care and treatment. While some of these dogs are happiest in their current foster homes or at our shelter, others are available for adoption to the right home. Please see their individual descriptions to learn more about each dog. In the meantime, all of these dogs are available for you to “sponsor”. The Sponsor program helps us to continue to provide for their future medical care.  All of these dogs hold a very special place in our hearts.

PEPE'

In Foster Home

This kind, senior gentleman came to us via another shelter after being found as a stray. Pepe' is almost blind and will probably require eye drops throughout his life. He will need a quieter home with someone willing to give him time to slowly acclimate to his new surroundings. Due to his lack of sight, he navigates using his hearing. He does get along with most dogs his size. He would not do well with small children.

TEDDY

In Foster Home

Teddy has been with us now for some time. He is a wonderful dog and loves people, but he has a strong dislike of any other animals. He will bark excessively even if he is in a car, or he spots an animal from a distance. Teddy also has some medical needs which require him to be on a special diet for the rest of his life. Teddy fortunately is in a great foster home where he will stay and continue to be loved. He is available to be sponsored for his medication and special diet.

JUSTIN

In Foster Home

Justin (the tan dog) is a 4-year-old mixed-breed dog who came from a hoarding situation. We don’t know his breed mixture, but he looks like a “pocket” German Shepherd (30 pounds) and is likely to have some terrier in there. When Justin came to us he was semi-feral. He has learned to tolerate people a little better in his year and a half in a foster home. He is not potty trained (will have both types of accidents regularly) but he is crate trained (no accidents in his crate). He enjoys the company of other dogs and might be a good companion for a playful or calm dog. He does not want to be touched by people and he cannot be caught, either in the house or in the yard. The only way of catching him is to ask him to go into his crate, crawl into the crate behind him, and leash him while in the crate. Justin requires a secure, physical, structural fence (no underground fence). He is considered special needs, and should go to a home with an experienced dog owner.
