Lexi

Lexi

Lexi is in a foster home, and is currently not at the shelter. Please find contact info at the end of her story. Lexi is a two year-old pointer mix. She is everything a working pointer should be smart, driven, independent, and high-energy. She is a beautiful dog with the ability to figure out complex tasks. She needs plenty of vigorous activity. This need for exercise (preferably off lead) coupled with her intelligence means that ongoing and lifelong training and activity is an absolute necessity. Lexi's ideal home would be one that believes dogs are not just part of, but central to, a very active home life. Do you take your dog running with you, then to agility class one night and rally class the next? Do you enjoy a dog who is almost always on, and think it's fun to figure out new ways to test their mental aptitude? Do you appreciate that having very clear criteria and boundaries are critical to managing a dog who can easily take advantage of ambiguity? Then you are the right home for Lexi! She is not a dog for the typical dog-loving home. She needs hours of exercise (both body or mind) every day. In her foster home her typical day looks like this: 1) Get up, go out, play with her canine foster brother. 2) Chase the ball for 30 minutes at a full out run in large backyard. 3) Go for a 30 minute walk with training drills along the way. 4) Crate while humans go to work (or go to work with humans). 5) Get up, work on food puzzles and find it games. 6) Chase ball/go for run/go to class. 7) Work on puzzle games and more training exercises; maybe learn a new trick. 8) Sack out on couch for the night. If Lexi doesn't get mind and body exercise every day, she will make work for herself which never turns out well. An idle Lexi is a bored Lexi, and a bored Lexi is impossible to live with. Her foster family has worked hard to undo the bad habits and behavior that she has picked up previously. Driven, focused dogs can fall into serious behaviors like resource guarding. Her forever family needs to realize that in order to get a calm, sweet dog who loves life and respects boundaries, they must be willing to put in the effort required of a working dog. Lexi is a lot of work and also a lot of fun. She is an incredibly endearing companion. Her foster family adores her antics, and her focus never ceases to amaze them. Yes, she is a lot of dog, but the pay-off is one of the most incredible canines you have ever met. Lexi is a dog for a dog person. She bonds tightly to her people, can live with other dogs and has lived with cats. Because of her drive and focus, we will not adopt Lexi to a home with children HOW TO ADOPT - Please fill out a Dog Adoption Application and email or fax it to the Seattle Animal Shelter Foster Dog Program.

Tiger Lily

Tiger Lily

Athletic, exuberant and confident - that's Tiger Lily! This gorgeous six month old (as of 2-7-10) had a fabulous brindle coat that really looks like a tiger - these photos don't do her justice. Although she's had no formal training in her past, she's learned 'sit' at the shelter, and sits nicely for treats. She is a teenager, and can be rambunctious - but she really does want to please, and being treat oriented she should be a good student. Tiger Lily would do best in a dog experienced home, with children at least ten years old (or just adults too). She's good with some other dogs, but she needs to learn better play skills - and how to be submissive around adult dogs. She is not currently a good dog park candidate. Tiger Lily is full of potential and brimming with life - she'll be one fabulous companion! If you don't have Pit Bull breed experience, please do some research before inquiring. Some great resources include Pit Bull Rescue Central (PBRC) and BAD RAP . Please note that Pit Bulls do best as either an only dog, or, with a compatible dog of the opposite sex, in the home. Thanks!

Jay

Jay

Jay is in a foster home, & is currently not at the shelter. Please find contact information below. Hello, my name is Jay - but it should be "Hello Handsome" since that's what everyone says when they take a look at me. I'm a one year old pit bull who's looking for a family to cuddle up on the couch with when I'm not busy playing a game of tug or ball with you. According to my foster mother I also have some mad obedience skills. I've got sit and down nearly mastered, and I'll bet with practice I could learn a whole lot more. It's really important for me to spend time in school so that I can live up to my potential as both a beauty king and a smarty pants! I'm a lot of dog so I probably shouldn't be with small kids, but I'd be great with your bigger humans. I love my foster dog brother - a super sassy chihuahua who likes to give me the business. I respect his space so I'm pretty sure I'd do well with another dog in the house - as long as you have plenty of experience having a multi dog household or know a whole lot about pittys. Look at me - I'm just about as cute as can be and I'm really a loving, silly, boy who just wants a permanent home to fall in love with. A cushy bed - yours or mine :) and some good food, water, and lots of games to play are all I need to be a happy camper. Remember, I am smart - so I need regular exercise for both my body and my brain - hopefully you believe in higher education and maybe dog sports too - like frisbee or agility or even fun nosework or rally! There are so many possibilities of things we can do together - but first you've got to fill out the application and let the shelter sniff you over, and then hopefully you can come and meet me! I'm waiting for you and I'll be doing a nice sit when you show up - please bring cookies :) ! See you soon. Jay If you don't have Pit Bull breed experience, please do some research before inquiring.

Meeko

Meeko

If you're looking for a positively gorgeous, goofy & sweet new best friend - look no further! Meeko is all that & so much more - her lovely blue coat actually glistens, & is so soft to pet - her build is compact & muscular, (though she could stand to put on a few pounds). At three years old, she has a medium energy level & can be vocal when she's excited. She's got some tricks in her bag already - they include 'sit', 'down', 'stay', & 'shake'. Being naturally smart, she's sure to learn more easily. And, yes, she sports a saucy one ear up and one ear down! Meeko will be great companion for the whole family - she's good with kids at least six years old, & has lived with another dog in the past. She rides nicely in her crate in the car, & was well behaved on a recent outing to a busy city park. Her ideal home will have some prior dog experience, & be moderately active. She was given up only because her previous guardians could no longer afford her. Meeko is a confident, cooperative dog & she'll keep you smiling with her big personality & even bigger heart!

Clifford

Clifford

Clifford isn't that big, and he's not all that red, but like the famous Clifford from childhood books, this handsome fellow thrives on love and affection and his heart is lion sized. Clifford will benefit greatly from training. He is very smart and a quick learner. He is also treat motivated and eager to please, so with a patient, consistent teacher, Clifford is sure to be a straight A student. He has very high energy, so much so that he will jump high in the air when he gets excited. He is exuberant and full of energy, so he will make a great companion for someone who loves to go on long runs or hikes. Give Clifford a scratch around his collar and he's in Heaven. Come meet Clifford and maybe, both your story and his will have a happily ever after ending.

Betty-ADOPTED!

Betty-ADOPTED!

Betty is in a foster home, and is currently not at the shelter. Please find contact information at the end of her story. Hi, my name is Betty and I'm one year old. Even though I'm a little shy everyone always stops to meet me and tell me I'm pretty. I didn't even know it! Once I have a chance to sniff you (I just have to make sure you smell right) then I like you to pet me and possibly give me a treat. That's because I'm both food and people motivated. I'm starting an obedience class tomorrow and not to be cocky, but I think I'm going to be an A student because I'm so smart. I just seem to pick things up really quickly: crate training, sitting at the door, potty training - easy for me! I'm excited to learn some fancy new leash skills, which is one thing I need to work on. It's weird how sometimes on walks you can't run as fast as you want. Even though I'm small for my breed I'm still a medium sized dog and it doesn't seem right that I am not supposed to be a lap dog. I try to do this anyway. My foster brother is a Boston Terrier and he's not as young as I am, but we do have a good time. Sometimes when I'm too playful he yells at me, and I always listen because I'm polite with other dogs. I think I take to dogs quicker than most people, but once I get a person's "smell" down I'm like their best friend. I'm still getting used to those tiny humans. I'm ok with the medium tiny humans (11, 12+ year olds are fine) but the squeaky ones make me a little nervous. I'm working on that with the help of my foster parents, but until I'm not afraid of the squeaky sounds the tiny humans make I shouldn't live with any. Since I'm such a sweet, beautiful girl I was wondering if you wanted to adopt me. I will promise to get you in shape since I need a lot of exercise. Then when we get home I also promise to snuggle and give you kisses. That's one of my best talents. Please be my mom or dad. . . . .

Blanca

Blanca

Blanca is in a foster home, and is currently not at the shelter. Please find contact information below, thanks. Blanca is a gorgeous, snow white, one year old girl with a charming personality. She is a non-stop tail wagger who thrives on affection. She fancies herself a lap dog and would like nothing better than to crawl up on your lap to cuddle and snuggle with you. Blanca is a smart girl who already knows sit. She will benefit from more training, as no one in her past ever really bothered to take the time to teach her much. She is so eager to please, she should be an excellent student. UPDATE 3/26/10 - Blanca just graduated from her basic manners obedience class - good girl! You can see more photos of this beauty here. Blanca loves to play and be on the go. She enjoys walks and will make a first-rate strolling, hiking or jogging partner. As long as she's with you, Blanca is ready, willing and able to go along and provide companionship. Children at least 10 years old, a compatible dog companion, and possibly a dog-savvy cat would all be ok in her new home. This happy-go-lucky girl is sure to bring a smile to your face. So don't be Grumpy, Dopey, or Bashful, come meet Snow White Blanca, and once you do, you're sure to be Happy. If you don't have Pit Bull breed experience, please do some research before inquiring.

Happy

Happy

Happy is a sweet, noble fellow. At 11 years old, he's gentle, calm, and extremely well mannered. "Sit" and "lie down" are a few of his specialties, and he's quite cooperative on a leash. Happy has lived with other dogs—like his buddy Dopey, who's here with him at the shelter—and he'd make an easygoing companion for kids 10 and up and adults with some dog experience. This handsome, affectionate boy deserves a loving home—why not make it yours? Happy is spayed/neutered.

Coober Pedy-ADOPTED!

Coober Pedy-ADOPTED!

Coober Pedy is in a foster home, and is currently not at the shelter. Please find contact information at the end of his story. My name Coober Pedy - Pedy for short. I'm about a foot tall and when fully fluffed, almost the same in width. But underneath all that fur, I'm in great shape. I'm around 4 years old and have a fantastic thick black coat and am in excellent health. I'm happy, proud, eager and lively -- everything you'd expect from a Pomeranian. While I can come across really intense and even obnoxious upon first encounters, I really do love humans and am very people oriented once I get to know you. I am always excited to see my foster parents and love to cuddle. I love to lean against them and have my fur scratched and will happily sit on their lap and don't mind being held either. I am also very energetic and will dance and spin circles when I get excited, which is often. I like to be brushed, love to get my belly rubbed, and do great when it's bath time. I'm also a quick learner and have completely mastered sit, "down", "shake" and am working hard on "roll over". I can "stay" too -- but not for long. I walk extremely well on a leash. I would be a great companion for someone who likes to go for long walks every day so I can get out and strut my stuff. I also love to run so living with a runner would be great. I have a lot of energy and do better when it is expended. Even though I sometimes bark when I see other dogs, I am much better when I'm outside and moving, than just standing around or hanging out. I even lived with two other female dogs and we were all fine together. I've been perfect with my house manners (no accidents). I go out and eat on a pretty set schedule, but I am ok if my schedule isn't like clockwork. I sleep in a crate every night and am pretty flexible about when I get up. Around the house I will happily sleep by your side or in a dog bed when you are working on the computer, but I like to be part of the action when you're up and about. I love to play fetch with my favorite toys for a long time. I ride great in the car too. You can see more pictures of me here! So what's not perfect about me? Well, I can be vocal - sometimes barking for attention, sometimes barking to alert you, and sometimes barking and reacting because of fear. When I am afraid, I can be VERY reactive (like when meeting someone new) and can get overly worked up. In these situations, I am quite assertive, and rather than cower and move away, I will confront the person or object that I am afraid of. This has become habit, so it will take time and training to re-learn new behaviors. In the meantime, I need to be closely managed, so that I am not put into these situations. Because I'm a ladies' man, I tend to warm up to women a lot faster, and many times you will find me in their laps within a few minutes, but with any new introductions, I'm much better if you let me get to know them first on my terms and not to force the situation. My ideal home would be where I can either be king of the house, or share it with a compatible and well adjusted dog who can deal with my sometimes Napoleon complex. I need my human peeps to have prior small dog experience and understand our needs and behaviors -- and realize that we are not just cute fluffy stuffed toys. Because I can be both assertive and reactive, I would be best in an adult only household. I'm living with a cat right now, but I do love to chase and bark at it when I see it . . . Now it's up to you - just fill out the application below and we can meet!

Honey

Honey

Honey is lively, alert, and high spirited. Her owner passed away, so she's in need of a new family. It's obvious she was very pampered in her past - there's remnants of burgundy nail polish on her toes! Honey is also calm and gentle, and a bit sensitive. She can be independent, and while not a huge cuddler, she's ok being picked up and held, and may sit on your lap now and then. Honey will do best in an adult only home with plenty of prior dog experience. A zen calm environment would be great. She's ok with some other dogs, and cats too if supervised. Of course she'll benefit from training with her new people - she's smart, and will learn with gentle coaxing. She's a really cute dog - especially when she walks - she actually prances. Please read up on her breed, then come meet Honey! My Contact InfoSeattle Animal Shelter Seattle, WA 206-386-PETS See more pets from Seattle Animal Shelter Share on Facebook

Stitch

Stitch

I'm a cute scruffy little one year old who was found as a stray. I'm looking a little rough right now after wandering the mean streets, but I've had a hair cut, and my coat is nice and soft, so soon I'll be my regular handsome self! I'm fairly easy to handle, cooperative, eager to please, and moderately athletic. My ideal home will have some prior dog experience, and be somewhere between zen calm and somewhat active. I like leisurely walks and playtime, as well as snuggling. I'm ok with kids at least ten years old. I'm good with some other dogs, and cats if we're supervised. Of course I could use some training - I'd love to learn some tricks! I can't wait to have a real home - come meet me!
