Profile: I currently have 3 dogs. Bella is my 15 year old American Eskimo. She is still ornery and funny at 15. She still does full flights of stairs and loves her treats and DQ now and then. Pippa is guessed to be 4, she was adopted last August and her DNA test says she is a Chow Chow/Lab/Shih Tzu! She was found running in a farmers field and was luckily caught before the fox or coyotes got her. Bear was adopted in July, 2014 and is a Lab Mix. She has spent the first 3 years of her life chained in the backyard and has the one inch scar around her neck to prove it. No more chains for her! The girls also live with a Bloodhound named Angus who belongs to my boyfriend. I have been active with rescue for many years and encourage everyone to adopt!

Godspeed my sweet boy. I miss you every single day. Echo was my first dog of my very own. He knows commands such as shake (with each paw based on the hand you offer), down, stay, sit,high five, Hug- He puts his paws on your shoulders, his first squeaky toy was a snowman so he thinks every toy is called a "snowman". He loves to lay in the snow and let the wind blow through his hair. He's a freak about baby carrots and refuses to eat regular carrots. We call him our metrosexual because he refuses to get his paws dirty unlike his sister. He stands to the side while she digs in the dirt with a look of such disgust. When he comes in from outside, his first item on the agenda is to come and find me so we have fun with hide and seek. He absolutely loves to ride in the car and believes that every drive through will deliver treats if he stares at them long enough and he usually succeeds. We love him dearly and hope to have many more years with him.View Profile
Bella was brought into our home 3 months after Echo. She is one hysterical little lady. We call her snowplow becuase she loves to stick her whole head in the snow, look up with a snow covered face and wonders why we are laughing. Bella has a dark side...she's um...racist! Yep, she goes beserk when seeing people of color on the street OR on tv. She actually watches tv and because she attacks the tv at the sight of any 4 legged animal, my animal planet watching must be done with her out of the room. She sleeps in my daughters room. We just say "time for bed" and she wanders upstairs and gets in her bed all on her own before my daughter even arrives! Bella has unfortunatetly been fighting a thyroid condition and allergies since she was 2 so she is our "plus size model" and we love her dearly. Accupuncture has been a god send in keeping her active. She can be a little mean to her brother. She always waits to eat her treats until he is finished with his knowing he will come and see the status of hers and then she can crab at him. Poor guy. She also chases him around the house and grabs his legs. While Echo suffers major anxiety if he can't see or know where Bella is. Bella is quite content to spend time alone at home without her dreaded brother. While she has her little imperfections, they make her who she is and we love her dearly.View Profile
Maisy Mae was adopted around age 7 from a shelter. I saw her face on petfinder and knew I had to go and get her. I had been doing boxer rescue for a long time but decided it was time to adopt the seniors. Her soulful eyes burned right through the screen to my heart. She blended with our white furballs quite easily and soon because my best friend. She was a crazy girl, always taking all the toys outside to play with, and Echo would slowly bring them all in only for her to return them to the yard. She loved to cuddle with me all wrapped up in a warm blanket. Anyone who thinks adopting a senior dog is not worthwhile has lost out on a truly wonderful experience. Her last year of her life she became stone deaf, and then she became very vocal. We laughed at how long she would chew a squeaky toy because of course she couldn't hear it! She was a petite little girl weighing only 45 lbs. At age 9 she developed Cushings disease and during the treatment she caught pneumonia and no longer could fight it. We helped her to the bridge and it was the worst day of my life. I know she is happily running now and waiting for me at the Bridge. Godspeed my beloved lady...View Profile
Pippa came to me last August as my foster dog. My Echo had just passed away leaving my Bella behind and very sad and lonely. When Pippa came to us Bella came back to life and it was my birthday so I decided it was meant to be even though I never thought I would have a terrier. Pippa is not very girly, she's all terrier. She loves to chase rabbits, squirrels and any other small moving thing. She likes to chase balls and will just lay down in the water when she's tired. She is a very sweet girl and prefers to be on my lap or touching me when I am sleeping. When I give her a bone she will often "hide" it between the chair cushions or in the closet as if I can't see it. She brings us lots of smiles and laughs and we love her very much.View Profile
Bear was brought home in June of 2014 as my foster dog and yep she stayed. She had lived the first 3 years of her life chained up in the backyard and didn't know how to live in a house. She has the 1 inch scar around her neck to prove it. Those days are gone. She lives with 3 other dogs and loves to play ball and with her siblings. She has learned how great it is to sleep on the bed and often won't get off without being drug! We are very happy to have her in our lives. She is our Whisker Face!View Profile
