Seniors & Special Needs

Dior - Senior Adoption Fee

Dior wants a lot of attention & gives lots of kisses. Dior LOVES the dog park but he does have a limp and can only go on short walks. He will be on long term pain meds that will need to be maintained after adoption. He likes to be held and will lay on the couch with you while you pet him. He is working on gaining self confidence. He loves other dogs but can be skittish of new people; however he warms up quickly if he can give kisses. Dior is improving on potty training. He does get excited and marks inside once in a while, however when told to stop he listens. Dior has some vision and hearing limitations and a small limp in his front elbow when he first gets up and again if he walks too far. He is a very quiet dog & so cute for an 11 year old.

Update 12-12: Dior is still looking for his forever home! He’s a very good boy and easy going.  He’s a senior guy who gets kind with other dogs and is using the doggy door at his foster home. 

He loves his stuffed dog, and every evening he takes it for a walk around the house leaving it in 1 dog bed only to go back and place it in another bed. Dior also loves belly rubs. He does have limited sight due to cataracts but he enjoys his walks and his people, he is good with children as well. An all around very good boy!

Waiting for a forever home since Sept 2017.

Daisy - Senior Adoption Fee

Daisy is a sweet senior girl.  She’d like to be the only princess in the house, she just isn’t a fan of being bothered. She loves her walks and is very active for her age, she also hasn’t had any accidents at her foster home!

Butch - Senior Adoption Fee

Butch is a 14 year old we pulled from the shelter. He is fine with other dogs and is learning to be around cats. He loves sleeping in the people bed and is very sweet.  He needs some work on his potty training. We don’t know what his history was, but we know he’s into a better life!

Waiting for a forever home since Nov 2017.

Mary & Elvis - Senior Adoption Fee
Mary and Elvis are an adorable pair of seniors, about 10 years old.  They are like an old married couple, and need to stay together.  Mary has some allergies and Elvis has a history of eating rocks so he will need to be watched, but so far their foster home reports that they are very sweet and well behaved. Mary is the larger Pug, and Elvis has the tongue that likes to stick out.  Can you give this adorable duo a forever home?

Mugsy - Special Needs

Meet Mugsy. He was in the 'rescue only' list at the shelter. He is a senior guy, blind and currently has ear infections. He is also very emaciated.  He seems to be a sweet, curious senior. More details once he's in his foster home.  Please consider donating to his ongoing care!
Update: Poor Mugsy needs a very special home and we know that home is out there. He has some neurological issues so he walks slowly and is blind. However, he enjoys his slow walks and time with his foster family. He has gained weight and enjoys eating.

Waiting for a forever home since Feb 2017.


Frankie is a special pug who has gone through a lot these last few weeks. When he first came into rescue, he couldn't walk. After testing, we found out his neck was broken in two places from abuse. He was terrified of people.  He had a fighting spirit though so we worked with our vet to get his pain under control. Over the last few weeks, Frankie had made huge strides!

He is about 4 years old. He can be slow to warm up to people because of his past but once he does, he loves cuddling. He seems fine with other dogs.  He will likely always be a little unsteady on his feet but that's ok!

Waiting for a forever home since Aug 2015.
