Brief Bio: Meet Scooby! Scooby was surrendered to the shelter by his owner who had to work abroad. Before his time in the shelter was up, a family picked him, signed the adoption paper and took him home only to return him to the shelter a few days later saying they had mistaken Scooby for their missing dog so decided they didn’t want him. Poor Scooby once again sat on death row in his dark cage looking so sad from the repeated abandonment. The shelter volunteers’ hearts sank for this gentle Golden, thankfully Scooby was pull from the shelter in the nick of time and is now in foster care getting lots of love.

Scooby has a great disposition, so gentle and well behaved. He loves people, always patient and friendly with children. He is great with all dogs and cats, housebroken and he knows basic commands. Scooby has a unique heart- shaped birthmark on his tongue which is like his personality – so loving and affectionate. Scooby loves belly rubs and will love nothing more then to have a family to call his own. We are looking for a home that will give this beautiful boy all the love and attention he deserves! Scooby is patiently waiting!

Owen – Adopted!

owen

UPDATE: We’re happy to share that Owen has found his loving forever home!

The whole family :) We love him so much – he’s easily the most loyal dog either of us has ever had. And brilliant! He has learned so much in a weeks time. He’s still a little shy around other dogs, but light years better than when we first got him – he’s quite literally improving every hour. He loves chasing butterflies, gardening, and going for walks. He really loves that. We can’t go anywhere without someone commenting on how adorable and well behaved he is. Thank you so much, he’s beautiful! -Caileen

Mary – Adopted!

mary

UPDATE: We’re very happy to share that Mary has found her loving forever home!

Hi Melody, Just wanted to check in and let you know I couldn’t be more happy with
Mary, now Willow! She is learning so fast and if the sweetest girl. I would definitely like to keep her. She likes to play with her big basket of toys and roll around on her bed that’s just a tad too large for her tiny little self right now! Willow fits in perfectly in our home and everyone is amazed by how mellow she is for a puppy. I have had so much fun with her and she even had her first appointment with the vet on Saturday. They couldn’t believe how calm she was! Attached are some pictures of her, although I haven’t gotten many of her face because she doesn’t know how to sit still quite yet :) Thank you so much for this perfect little girl she is very loved! -Danielle :)

The rescue who found them couldn’t let them wonder the street for fear they would get hit by cars. Mary is a very sweet and smart girl and would love nothing more then a loving home. Due to superstition Mary is considered “bad luck” in asia because of her coloring and her white “boots”. Dogs like Mary are often times killed but we see the potential and love in this beautiful girls eyes. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Mary is patiently waiting!
