Profile: Snicker Doodles joined our family when she was 5 weeks old and being given away in front of a Safeway grocery store in Milton, WA. We were told her mother was a purebred Rottweiler. While we have no reason to not believe the people giving her away were telling the truth - everything about Snickers except her size, does not remind us of a Rottweiler! Snickers embodies benevolence and has enriched our lives tremendously.

Snicker Doodles joined our family when she was 5 weeks old and being given away in front of a Safeway grocery store in Milton, WA. We were told her mother was a purebred Rottweiler. While we have no reason to not believe the people giving her away were telling the truth - everything about Snickers except her size, does not remind us of a Rottweiler! Snickers embodies benevolence. She is a friend to all humans and animals alike. Despite this soft side, she is unquestionably the leader of our pack, though you'll never see her throwing her authority around. She is retired from running, but lives to chase the tennis ball, an activity we must limit due to her age and the health of her joints. We have never seen a dog with her coloration and markings, making her all the more one of a kind.View Profile
Treasure joined our family as a "slightly used" German Shepherd/Border Collie mix in 2004. Having been returned to her county shelter 3 times, after 3 failed adoptions for such unspeakable 'crimes' as "wants to be with people too much" and "too hyper"...She fit perfectly in our family. Her energy was channeled into daily running with me and being part of our 4 dog pack. She is intelligent, quirky and cranky at times - but loyal to a fault. And, she is obsessed with food and has earned the nickname "The Kitchen Shepherd".View Profile
Shanghai is the life of the party and has been since the moment she set 'paw' in our home as an 8 week old rescued adoption. She is full of spunk and personality and a misguided herding instinct. She herds the vacuum cleaner, shows a worrisome interest in passing motorcycles, tried to go after the edger and always tries to rule the dog park when we visit. In addition, she's definitely our home's air defense system and is vigilant about the many birds who fly over and occasionally perch on our house or trees. She earned the nickname Red Rocket for her unstoppable speed when someone 'dares' to play with her. With the exception of a Basenji, she hasn't met a dog she can't out-sprint.View Profile
Samson joined our family in 2008 and was intended to be a playmate for Shanghai. As a pup at the time, we expected he'd be full of vigor. Boy were we wrong. Samson epitomizes the hound traits we are certain lie beneath his soft, fluffy shepherdy/golden coat. He lives to sleep - and to sleep in comfort. He enjoys to go sniffing - but otherwise, can be found relaxing somewhere within our a/c'd house - usually on the pillows of a human bed. He is a sweet dog and embodies what I imagine a 'living stuffed animal' would be like as you can cuddle him any way you please.View Profile
Thumper is a Great Pyrenees born in July 2013. He is a beautiful, sweet puppy and has brightened up our lives. His best buddy is Snickers, a 1/2 Great Pyrenees who is 12 1/2 years old. It is a joy to see them together.View Profile
