Flipper - Adoption Pending
Meet Flipper (he came with that name if you are wondering LOL).
Flipper is a 10 month old mixed breed fella who weighs around 35lbs, he won't get much bigger. He's an athletic fellow who was bred for hunting but apparently failed and was surrendered to the shelter. You would be surprised at how many unscrupulous breeders take the best of the litter and dump the remainder. Anyway, Flipper, like his brother Scuba is a lover not a hunter and he would love a family to call his own.
He's a shy fellow and would likely be suited for an adult home where he can gain some confidence. I think another dog would really help him come out of his shell. He adores his foster mom and loves nothing more than to lie next to her or have cuddles. He's doing well with house training and thinks Thetis lake is "the bomb". He will likely do well in a home where someone is able to do training etc. with him and give him lots of exercise.
Ivan - Adoption Pending
Ivan is a 15lb terrier mix who is 4 years old. He is super sweet and fully vetted. He needs a special home with someone who is home much of the day. An active retiree would be fabulous.
Ivan comes from a hoarding situation and, as such he has few manners. he's insanely curious so if you open the cupboard he will be the first to check out the contents. He needs some boundaries and certainly some training would be hugely helpful. Ivan adores his people, perhaps a bit too much. He can be excitable and as such a family with young children is likely not in his future (he likes to jump up). He would do well in a quieter home with someone who is keen to take him walking and hiking!
Ivan is working on crate training and doing awesome... he sleeps in a crate at night. He is house trained with vigilance - you will need to ensure that you reinforce the good habits with regular outings, again he's doing fantastic but he will not "ask" to go outside. He would benefit from having a fenced yard as he has no reliable recall at this time, although that will come with training.
Lastly he wants to be an only dog. He loves others but just not in his space. Currently he lives with 3 other dogs but he is possessive of his bed, food and his favourite people. I think after having to share with 74 other dogs that he deserves not to have to share. He enjoys meeting dogs on walks but, again, can become over excited as is typical of terriers.
This guy is a wonderful dog and would be a great companion for someone who is willing to spend the time and do some training with him. he's a loving and affectionate dog who just needs the right fit to blossom.

Scuba - Adoption Pending
Meet Suba or as his foster parents call him Charlie. Charlie is a 10 month old mixed breed fella who weighs around 35lbs, he won't get much bigger. He's an athletic fellow who was bred for hunting but apparently failed and was surrendered to the shelter. You would be surprised at how many unscrupulous breeders take the best of the litter and dump the remainder. Anyway, Charlie is a lover not a hunter and he would love a family to call his own. he's a beautiful dog, loving and sweet, and a wee bit shy. As you can see his foster family have had him out at the lake and he's loving the hikes. Charlie would do well with a family and he's great with other dogs and cats. Charlie is fully vetted and ready for his forever family.. please fill out an application. Here's what his foster family says about him:
"It's been really nice having the foster in our home. We named him Charlie; it seemed to suit him. :) He's very sweet, curious, and will make a great adventure buddy from what we can tell. He'll be a good hiking companion with his long legs. He's picking up basic house training fairly quickly, only a couple small pees in the house and we are working on teaching him to keep his paws off the kitchen counters and basic household manners. He is sleeping really well in his crate at night and doesn't mind going in the crate with a little encouragement. His confidence on walks is increasing everyday and he loves to say hi and greet all dogs he meets along the way. He is shy of people at first and takes a little bit too warm up to them. Loud noises and cars spook him but he settles down quickly once he knows everything is ok. On the trail he gets lots of positive attention and complements. People think he is adorable. He does great with our dog and we feel gives him some added confidence. He would probably be great in a home with another dog. We haven't had him around any children or cats, so we can't comment on that. He's quite cuddly and affectionate, and enjoys a nice snuggle on the couch at the end of the day. We think he would be perfect for an active household and a family that is ready to put in the time and energy to help build his confidence"
Tikka - Available for Adoption
Meet Tikka. This is the sweetest dog who is looking for a very special home. She’s a year old and is a cattle dog mix weighing in around 40lbs. Tikka is exceedingly shy with new people and really will need patience to help her overcome her fears with things like traffic and other objects that are new to her. She is a wonderful and affectionate dog and loves nothing more than to sit in your lap. She bonds quickly with women and takes a little longer to get used to men. Tikka would benefit from a rural home with other dogs. She is super playful and loves to run. She’s housetrained and walks well on leash. She also sleeps in a crate.
Tikka would probably be best in a quieter adult home. She currently lives in a home with teenagers who she likes but finds them a bit noisy lol. This girl also loves to chase things like birds and squirrels. She has a good prey drive. She would definitely keep the pests at bay on a farm or vineyard!
We do adopt to the gulf islands so maybe that might be a possibility for her. She’s the sweetest and most wonderful dog and we are willing to wait for the perfect home for her!
