Sammy is a sweet little wiggly puppy. She loves to be near you and give you kisses (hands, feet, nose - if you aren't careful). After she gets to know you she will lay on her back looking adorable until you rub her tummy.

Sammy rides well in the car and loves squeaky toys. She also enjoys her daily walk (she does wander a bit on leash but does not pull). The cats trust her and she completely ignores them. Sammy is definitely people-oriented but will run around the back yard with my greyhound.

She does not like to be confined – she chewed on the baby gate and moved chairs out of the way to get to "off-limits" rooms. Once the obstacles were removed she was quite content. Sammy is very well behaved in the house otherwise. I did catch her sneaking my shoe off to her bed for a little chew time – hopefully she will outgrow that.

Sammy is a funny little dog with a huge heart. Check out Sammy and her "Curly Sue" tail today!

Raffie is kind of considered "special needs" because of his broken tail. Raffie has very limited mobility in his tail (wagging or lifting). The impact of that is:

1. He cannot express himself fully when he is happy. So if you like a big tail wagger he is not for you.
2. He cannot lift it out of the way when he eliminates. Waste does get caught under his tail so he needs wiped after he eliminates.

Raffie was very insistent on marking in the house the first few days he was here. A bad boy band and scolding made little impact on him. He was doing it to feel safe and confident. Over 3 days I'd say he marked in 8 different places. After that he got it out of his system and quit.

The exception to that is when I brought another "marking" male home for the day. Over the course of 8 hours they (both of them) marked probably 10 different places. I guess they both got it out of their system because there was no more marking the rest of that evening (probably another 8 hours or so). There have been no marking issues since then (I have not brought anyone new into the house either).

Raffie continues to ignore the 4 cats in his foster home. They trust him completely. He loves his daily walks, squeaky toys, and soft cushy beds. Raffie does seem to need canine companionship. He really likes being around my older female greyhound.

He is still a puppy. While he is laid back most of the time, occasionally he gets rowdy in the yard. He will jack rabbit around and try to pounce. It is very adorable!

His current foster home is quiet and follows a fairly consistent routine. Raffie is doing quite well here. He is a very special dog and will make the right person the perfect companion.

Soft & furry. Whoever adopts her gets naming rights to her last three pups! (This is quite an honor). She has a mild salivary cyst, not a threat, just looks odd. We haven't decided whether to have it removed. Lovely lady.

If you are looking for a laid back, easy-going girl, look no further! Ellie might just be the one for you! She is sweet and charming. She loves to relax and likes being with her people. She will seek your attention whenever given the chance by laying her head on your lap!
She is doing very well at letting us know when she needs to go outside, and has only had a couple of accidents. She is not destructive when left alone, just relaxes. She enjoys her regular walks around our neighborhood and easily makes friends with other pets in the area.

Her new forever home could easily include another medium or small dog; she is very comfortable with other dogs, even our neighbor's four month old terrier, as well as our own senior dog. She is not safe with cats.
She would also do equally well as an only dog in a low to moderately active home with older children.

This beautiful little lady is full of love and deserves a life of leisure. Could you be the answer to her prayers for a forever home?
