Princess Sheba Princess Sheba is now on medical hold due to her age and medical issues including her arthritis , which we have shortened her walks from 3 to 2 and go with how she is feeling that day. She still enjoys meeting people , but loves her beauty sleep and quiet time to recharge . She does still enjoy being loved on. She also isn't enjoying her grooming as much and resists. She recently went off her food and I readjusted what she eats and how it is prepared and sometimes hand feed her . She used to eat with no problem. We want to insure she doesn't have to make any other adjustments and ensure she gets the care that she needs as a senior dog. Princess Sheba is being fostered in

Bailey Blue is a work in progress, learning to trust people. She may have been abused or had some head injury or is just naturally extremely shy of people, but she is great with other dogs. This girl is a flower waiting to bloom and it will take some time to see how much more progress she can make. She may never be a very social dog with people she doesn't know but it's clear she will learn to love and trust at least one or two people. Bailey Blue is fostered in Collegeville PA. NS3780
Mangus - ADOPTION PENDING - is in the 30 pound range and presently on medical hold due to recuperation from an accident. He is approximately 8 years old and semi-velcro. He always wants to know where you are and can hear you move from two rooms away. He is totally trust worthy without a crate, but will slip into his crate periodically for a nap. He experienced some time on his own before being rescued so asks that we keep all garbage can lids closed. He does not play with toys but enjoys belly rubs while in your lap and loves hanging on the deck watching the deer and new fawns on the outside of the fencing. Fostered in Stroudsburg, PA NS3884
Zinnia is a super outgoing, confident blue merle with a distinctive, black mask, almost like a raccoon. She plays well with other pups and loves humans. She is a bit taller than most minis, weighing 28 lbs. Veterinarians estimate her age at 2 years. This pup likes to cuddle once she is in your lap and and is getting more comfortable being picked up. She is medium energy and hardly barks at all. She is crate trained and her house training proceeding quickly. She has terrific prey drive and will tug nicely. Rides well in a car. Her leash manners are a work in progress, and she is a social climber, always looking to get closer to her human. Zinnia is going to be a terrific training partner. She is treat and toy motivated and remains focused on tasks when other dogs might be sidetracked by environmental distractions. We expect she will master most basics quickly. Zinnia is a placeholder name. She is not answering to it. Zinnia is currently in heat and will need to be spayed. She is on "hold" and not taking applications until November. Fostered in Washington, DC NS3910
Rain is a male red merle with striking blue eyes. He is 1 year old, and extremely thin at 37 pounds. He just oozes sweetness and seems to love everyone he meets. He is very submissive and definitely takes a backseat to the bossy resident Aussie.
He loves other dogs and plays wonderfully with every dog he has met. Cats are an unknown but I suspect a cat who stands their ground would do just fine. He would most likely chase a cat that runs in an attempt to play. He is medium energy (I suspect that will increase when he feels better) and high velcro.
He is all paws and very clumsy, yet he bounds like a deer when he runs. He still has many puppy mannerisms that are simply adorable. He is gentle when he plays and he corrects so easily. A raised voice just isn't necessary.
He is learning heal at the moment and still pulls on walks. He does jump up when excited and we are working with that. He is incredibly smart and learned sit and come in a matter of minutes. He is crate trained, and so far zero accidents in the house.
Rain is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his shots. He is an incredibly gentle sweet soul with a heart to please and has huge potential for any dog sport.
This lovely boy is fostered in Phoenixville. Please submit an application if interested.
