Profile: I'm the eccentric dog lady in the neighborhood. I rescue and foster puppies, then find them homes. My permanent puppies have learned to tolerate this. I'm still working on the neighbors.

Cobweb is an alpha female, born to a catahoula/chow I rescued from my workplace. The father is my American bulldog/mutt who was (allegedly) neutered. I named Cobweb and her littermates for fairies from "A Midsummer Night's Dream," since they weren't supposed to exist.View Profile
Peaseblossom was the runt of a six-pack, with her father's build, extra toes, and personality, and her mother's eyes, coloring, and hunting obsession. She doesn't make friends easily, but she loves me!View Profile
Celia was running along the center line of a busy highway when I called her into my car. Two weeks later, the Pound said her time was up, so I rescued her again. My bulldog needed a friend, and they are still inseparable... except when Celia climbs the fence to go knock over a neighbor's trash. She's rotten, but gentle and forgiving. Her nickname is "Awful Thing."View Profile
I brought Autolycus home when he was 10 weeks old. He's been my big drooly buddy ever since. He was born with dysplacia of the hips, but he doesn't complain. He's more of a lover, but he's proven to be a fighter if I'm in danger.View Profile
Portia was born October 3rd, 2007, along with nine siblings, to my neighbor's mutt. The girl who adopted Portia would let her come play with my dogs to run off puppy energy. So, when the girl and her mom had to move very suddenly (domestic situation), they brought Portia to me, and asked if I would keep her until they found a pet-friendly place. I kept Portia for six weeks, with her girl coming over on weekends to see her. When Portia finally left for her new home, my dogs missed her. I do, too.View Profile
I took in Nerissa & Stephano when they were about 6 weeks old. Some neighborhood kids brought them to me, claiming they found the pair wandering in the street. They were covered in filth and fleas, and their swollen bellies indicated massive amounts of internal parasites. I couldn't turn them away, but I couldn't keep them, either. So, after a trip to the vet and four weeks of TLC, I found homes with kids for each of them. Stephano lives across town, but Nerissa is just around the corner from me, so I still have her over for play dates, now and then.View Profile
