Josie – Puyallup Area, WA

Josie is our newest little addition in WA. She just got a ride in from Klamath Falls OR where she was found as a stray. This tri-colored girl is a little bit of a mystery but so far likes other dogs and playing. Interested in cats a little too much. Will get better info on age and health after she is properly vetted. Shelter thinks 4-5; we think a bit younger. She weighs 37lbs and is a smallish standard or a larger mini. Stay tuned for more information as we unravel the mystery that is Josie.

Zuko – Las Vegas, NV – Foster Home Urgently Needed

ZukoPoor Zuko just can’t catch a break. His awesome foster dad had to leave for California immediately after a family emergency. His stay in California will be extended and he cannot bring Zuko with him as he’ll be caring for his father and have extended work hours in the family business. We have him back with his former interim fosterer but she can only hold for a week due to work constraints. Zuko will need an experienced and confident fosterer who will maintain the much needed structure, leadership and boundaries that he’s been thriving on the past few weeks. He is dominant and will resource guard his favored person so a strong, confident but loving leader who won’t be hesitant about giving him much needed structure is a must. He is good with other dogs but on a limited basis as he can become overstimulated during play. Zuko is 1.5 years old and about 52lbs. Our paws are crossed for this challenging little fellow.

She gets very excited when she sees other dogs so on the safe side, she doesn’t get to meet them. Sissy is house trained but may need a refresher on leash and crate training.
