Check out the doggy in the window!
These are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:
Mojo is a happy go lucky 2-3 year old mixed breed that looks like a Pekingese-Puggle blend, with the most adorable overbite! He’s low to the ground and weighs in at 14 pounds. Mojo loves to play with other dogs and is very respectful of cats. His true love, however, is people. Mojo quickly bonds and loves to give kisses. Mojo is quiet and clean in his kennel. Having just been neutered, he is still working on not marking every tree he sees, so his new family with have to be patient and diligent with his potty training. Mojo loves being outside and going on leash walks. Despite all that he has been through, Mojo trusts very deeply and will be a very loyal companion. He is a total love, very social, and definitely wants a connection with someone. He will do best in a home with a family that will not leave him alone for long hours.
Mojo’s adoption fee of $335 includes comprehensive vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, Bordetella vaccination, Rabies vaccination, heartworm preventative, routine deworming, flea/tick preventative, microchip and neuter.
This is Mitzi, an awesome little chihuahua/terrier type, a tiny 10 pounds, and estimated to be about 6 yrs. old. Found as a stray, she was brought to the local pound and never reclaimed, so we don’t know her history. She quickly acclimated to her foster home and seems to get attached to her person quickly. Her foster mom describes her as “lovely and adorable”. She needs love and attention. If she thinks she didn’t get enough, she’ll whine and look at you like “you’re not really done loving on me yet, are you?” (She loves belly rubs and ear rubs.) She likes to be with her person, so would not do well in a home where her humans are gone long hours. Wherever you are, she will be right there with you. Getting into bed? She’ll jump in with you too. Watching TV on the couch? She’ll be right beside you. Outside in your lawn chair? She’s right there beside you. (She loves being outside and sitting in the sun.) She is housebroken and knows commands such as ‘sit’, ‘stay’ and ‘shake hands’. She’s very alert and, like a mini watchdog, will bark at people coming into the house (well, and sometimes the neighbors too!) She gets along with other little dogs.
Mitzi’s foster mom says: “Mitzi needs a home that will love her to pieces. I have a feeling that she had a good home once but then something happened and she ended up here. She seems to remember how it was because she shows me how she was treated and what she likes. She is a great companion.” So, if you’re the person that is ready to LOVE MITZI TO PIECES, come meet this adorable little girl and fall in love.
Mitzi’s adoption fee of $300 includes comprehensive vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, Bordetella vaccination, Rabies vaccination, heartworm preventative, routine deworming, flea/tick preventative, microchip and spay.

Please understand that though you may want to take these adorable animals home with you when you see them, you will first have to go through the application process through Adopt-A-Pet. Applications can be found here; fill it out and send it to Adopt-A-Pet. One of their adoption counselors will contact you.
We are one of the many foster homes for Adopt-A-Pet, and rarely know the adoption status of these dogs. You can see all of the animals that Adopt-A-Pet has and contact them regarding the availability of a particular dog on their main site here.
