Update: all dogs have a foster!

Fostered stamp 2

sir luke
Name: Sir Luke
Age: 8 years
Breed: Shih Tzu
Foster Period: 4+ weeks

Just a reminder that our amazing Sir Luke is still looking for a foster that will be able to take over his care starting in December! Sir Luke has done so much by doing so little and is one of the few dogs in this world given the privilege of having been knighted. While doing more good deeds in this world Sir Luke’s mission was abruptly halted when he was hit by a car. Sir Luke was brought to our care and received the medical treatment he needed. Luckily, this dashing dog came out relatively unscathed and was able to walk away with a slight fracture on his front leg. Sir Luke has a cast on and will need to come to the shelter once a week to have it changed. He is currently on pain killers for any discomfort and will not be allowed to run freely, jump on or off objects or furniture, or have free range of the home. Sir Luke should ideally go to a home without young children and will need to remain in a small area of the home or a large crate that can be provided along with any other supplies you feel that you need to help this noble dog. If you are interested in fostering Sir Luke through the holidays or have any additional questions regarding his care and needs please let us know and we would be happy to assist.

Madonna 2 Madonna 1

Name: Madonna
Age: 4 years
Breed: Chihuahua
Foster Period: 1+ week

Madonna is a friendly chihuahua and although she doesn’t show it she is actually being treated for pneumonia. Madonna should go to a home with no other dogs and although she can go outside for short 5-10 minute walks they should be slow and relaxed to not exacerbate her cough. Madonna will be leaving with antibiotics as well as a nebulizer that she will need to use twice a day for her treatment. Everything that Madonna needs will be ready to send home with you and we will gladly demonstrate how to use the nebulizer. Madonna is scheduled for X-rays on Tuesday the 25th and will need to return the day before her appointment. After this appointment we will know Madonna’s future foster care needs if any. If you are available to take home a dog in need please let us know and we would love for you to meet Madonna!


Name: Apricot
Age:4 years
Breed:Yorkshire Terrier
Foster Period: 1-2+ weeks

Apricot is a dashing terrier with Bronchitis. I just met her today and although shy at first it didn’t take long for Apricot to eagerly greet me and attempt to climb in my lap. Apricot’s condition might be contagious and she will need to be the only dog in the home and should not interact with other dogs when outside. Apricot will need to be rechecked by our vets on Wednesday 11/26 to check her progress. If you would like to foster this affectionate canine or have further questions about her care please let us know!

Name: Tibi
Age: 10 months
Breed: Maltese
Foster Period: 3+ weeks

I think that some of you might remember Tibi from a previous post. Tibi is the sweetest, most social dog with a broken leg that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Tibi was a stray dog that was hit by a car and brought in to our care by a good Samaritan. Tibi has made a very bold fashion statement with her stylish cast and short hair cut but she has never looked better. Tibi will need to be on restricted activities for the time being so that she can focus on healing. Please don’t think that she won’t be a fantastic house guest though! Tibi is very quiet, polite, and when you are visiting with her all she wants to do is sit close to you. If you are willing to open your home to this lovely dog she will return the favor two fold by adding a little extra love to your life. If you are interested in Tibi or would like to know more about her medical needs please let myself and Joseph know and we would love to assist.
