Aries is a youngster who will need quite a bit of attention, perhaps from a stay-at-home mom or dad, so that he'll do his best. He's nice with children and he's potty trained, but he can be destructive and prone to escaping if left alone. We're not sure if having another dog for company would placate him enough that he's be comfortable being left, but a working family is probably not ideal for ...
Cute right? This wonderful guy is Sensei and he is finally ready to start the search for a forever home. Ironically enough, Sensei actually needs a sensei or in another words...a teacher. We aren't sure he has a lick of training but we know an experienced and calm owner could do wonders with him. He has mellowed a lot in the last few weeks, a far cry from the emaciated wild child that showed up...
Holland is a gorgeous girl of about 7 yrs old. Her ears are cropped but they don't stand and she was probably bred many times over. Holland is pretty dog social and loves to play but she tends to be dominant. She is okay with little dogs but probably shouldn't be left alone with them or be in a home with cats. Holland bonds tightly with her owner and is incredibly loyal but if she's lonely and ...
Lorna is a stocky long-tailed Dobie. She's 5-6yrs old, and she seems to tolerate large male dogs reasonably well, though we would advise against having her live with smaller dogs. As a family companion, she would probably be a nice choice.
Remington, also called Remy, is a attractive four or 5-year-old Dobie boy who likes children but isn't overly fond of other male dogs. He's currently kenneled with a large female dog at our facility and doesn't argue with her. Remy spent several months in a home but isn't fully house trained yet, though he does know several commands. He's a nice watchdog that doesn't dig or chew; overall, a ver...

Zeus is a young, all natural dobie boy who is almost 2yrs old. Unfortunately, he hasn't had a whole lot of training but he is smart and eager to please so in the right home, he could be a cute member of the family. He didn't have proper socialization with other dogs at a young age but we are working with him. He has a hard time meeting new dogs and he takes direct eye contact as a challenge so ...
Smokey is a stunning 5yr old blue dobie. In the short time he s been in rescue we see that he is a shy boy that hasn t been out and about a lot. He s startled by things in everyday life and needs time and coaching to gain self confidence. He walks ok on leash and will respond to obedience requests once he s more trusting of his new life and surroundings. He is standoffish until he s sure he s s...
This attractive guy is Ryland and he's a newer addition to the rescue. Found as a stray, he ran out of time at the animal rescue shelter so we took him in. He needed some TLC since he was underweight, had a urinary tract infection and there was an old fracture in 1 of his feet. He rehabbed well, got neutered and he is now at the rescue and ready for a new home. Ryland is about 4yrs old, tall an...
Unfortunately, Sheena lost her home after nearly 4 yrs because she could just no longer live with the other female dogs in the home. Though she peacefully got along with the multiple female dogs most of the time, she had some issues every once and a while when she got overstimulated or excited. Sheena is about 5 yrs old now and a bit of an anxious girl but very affectionate with people she know...
Hamilton is a super smart guy with high drive so his perfect home will have to be a specific one. Here is what we know... Hamilton is between four and 6yrs old but his energy level is pretty high. He is an escape artist, able to jump or climb over fences, open gates and make holes in chain link. He is okay with some female dogs but we don't know if he can peacefully live with another dog in a h...
Luna was just returned after a year in a loving home. It was a tearful decision but her owner had to take the safety of everyone else in the home into consideration and she knew Luna wasn't the right match for the family. Luna was originally found as a stray by them and when no owner was found we took her in, got her spayed and fixed up but the family couldn't forget about her so they decided t...
Jordan is a pretty young (approx 2-year-old) Dobie girl who developed a strong connection with her previous owner, unfortunately to the exclusion of other people. She bonded with the man after she became comfortable in the home, but then behaved badly with others; fear-aggression, perhaps. Though Jordan has not bitten anyone, her next owner should work to socialize her better so that she's more...
Jasper is a new arrival whose owners loved him but ultimately decided to relinquish him as much for his own safety as that of others. Jasper was overly protective of his fullgrown owners, and these folks have workers and visitors including children that they felt were at some risk with Jasper in the home. He did nip new people on 3 different occasions, and a continued bite history could require...
This beautiful girl is Brat, a name she came with from her previous home. She is apparently 8 yrs old, though you would never guess it, and she was surrendered to an animal rescue shelter after she was attacked by 2 other dogs in the home. She suffered an injury that resulted in a huge, open wound that couldn't be closed. We have been taking care of her and using honey wraps to help her heal. T...
J. R. is a new arrival with us, though he did have 1 problem when adopted twice before from an upstate animal rescue shelter: he escaped. It isn't known what the circumstances were or even if the escapes were from the same owner's property. Perhaps his previous adopter(s) had too short a fence or 1 with holes in it, or perhaps they failed to keep doors and gates closed; we don't know. We're int...
Gator is new in our program, but he has already won many hearts. We hope he won't be a difficult placement due to his appearance, but he'll require a special person that can overlook: (a) that he has a long tail; (b) that he has scars all over his body and an injury to the end of his nose; and (c) that he was probably a "bait" dog used for fighting, though he doesn't appear to have any resentme...
Nisha is a adorable youngster who needs a new home. She was a stray in a rural area and ended up hanging around a man's property. He did try and find her owners and in the meantime, he took care of her and slowly gained her trust. Unfortunately, he couldn't keep her and when she was placed in a new home nearby, she jumped the 4 feet fence and returned to his property. We think Nisha is around 2...
Diego is a brand-new arrival (4-12-19) from an upstate animal rescue shelter where he was impounded, emaciated and with a very bad eye injury. The staff there quickly became enamored with this gentle dog, who is sensitive and will fully submit if he thinks he has done anything to displease. After we committed to rescuing him a few weeks ago, he was sent to U. C. Davis for surgery on his eye, an...
Blue Max is a recent arrival here at the rescue ranch, having been brought to us by a volunteer on May 5, 2019. His owner didn't want him any more and intended to put him to sleep the next day, probably assuming no 1 would want a 10-year-old Dobie. Max was kept mostly outdoors his whole life, but other than being a little underweight, he looks surprisingly good. He's a little hand-shy and insec...
