Dogs Who Need A Foster
Lily is a fun, loving, 10 pound Chihuahua mix that’s around 10 years old. She’s confident around dogs of all sizes, fine with cats, is crate and potty trained, has been spayed, micro-chipped and is up to date on all her vaccines. Lily has medical problems but nothing that slows her down not even a little. Lily is being treated for Valley Fever, uses eye drops and does very well on the food she is currently eating as it keeps her skin and fur very healthy and smooth and silky . Lil’s VF was left untreated so long that a couple of her vertebra were permanently damaged, so it’s best she be in a home with a low to mid energy level. Though she sometimes disagrees, rough horseplay with others and jumping off tall things are not something she should do. Lilly loves to be the queen of the home so honestly if she can find a human to snuggle with and adore on that would be perfect for her. She does well in the car as well. Overall Lily will do great as a companion, can be housed comfortably with another easy going dog and a cat.
Kanga is a loving, attentive, 50 lb. Malinois or other German Shepherd type and sighthound (ie: whippet or greyhound type) mix. She’s around 7 years old and her personality is a bit on the nervous side in that it takes her time to decide who to trust, and unexpected things like loud noises can really startle and scare her. Kanga’s house trained, is reported to love horses, and has lived with and would do better with older, calmer kids. She currently lives with seven other dogs and does OK with most of them, but she really wants to be the “female dog boss” which can cause issues. She really needs a fairly quiet home where she’s the only dog and there’s usually a human around, or she might also do alright with another dog if it’s a mellow, confident male, but it would have to be just the right dog. Kanga is athletic and interested in her surroundings (for instance what’s going on on the other side of the wall/fence), so a very secure yard with at least a 6′ wall or fence is a must.
Ike is a very sweet little boy. He is a 10 years old Chihuahua mix, who weighs about 12 pounds. He is potty trained, neutered, up to date on vaccines and micro chipped. Ike is an extra special boy, he only has 3 legs. However, he gets along very well with those 3 legs. His leg was badly broken, so bad in fact, that it had to be amputated, so he is a little sensitive about it. He is shy at first, but will warm up. He doesn’t always get along with other dogs, but it could be because of his leg. Just a warning – all of the females do flirt with him, because he is a good looking dude! So be prepared to fight them off if! He will steal your heart away! He is afraid of thunderstorms and you will find him in your lap. Once he is picked up, he loves to be pet. He just needs time to know that someone loves him. He is a really good little boy and would make a wonderful buddy for someone. Ike needs someone who will walk him and make him feel confident on a leash.
