Harley webpage
Pet of the Month
Harley was born approx 2011.  He is a Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix.  He can be friendly and very loving but he has displayed overly protective tendencies to the one he has chosen as his....even if that 'one' has a two legged significant other.  We are looking for a single woman for this little guy, someone who is looking for a pint size shadow, a lap warmer and protector.  He is happy go lucky at adoptions and will hop from one lap to another lap to another lap through out the day.  But once in a home, he doesn't want to share his person with another.  He loves to sit in laps and gives little kisses and jumps to be picked up.

 Marley Huxley newsletter 

Success Story
Marley and Huxley
Marley and Huxley have been together all their life.  Marley was found deserted in a box on the freeway.  A good Samaritan noticed a head popping out of the box. She looped around and picked him up and welcomed him into her home.
Huxley was being watched while his owner was away.  However, his owner never returned to pick him up. The person watching him was never able to make contact with his owner either. She welcomed him into her home too.  
Sadly, her infant child's allergies worsened so much so that she was unable to breath with Marley and Huxley nearby. Their owner was greatly saddened to give them up but the health and safety of her child was at risk.
She asked for our help so surrendered them to us, hoping we find them a home together.  We hoped to fulfill her wishes as well.  Happily, we did!  We are very pleased as Marley and Huxley have a wonderful home together.  Thank you for adopting these sweet boys!

Wag 'n Walk Mascot Announced!

rosebud newsleeter

Rosebud, a beagle/basset mix, and her 4 siblings were born on Thanksgiving day 2017.  Her mom and dad were rescued from the shelter and her momma was pregnant.  She is very small compared to her siblings at 11 lbs vs. 25-40 lbs.  We immediately knew something was wrong when she came out with difficulty breathing.  It was touch and go with her survival as she gasped for air. 

We soon learned that she has neurological issues especially in her head area.  Hence the reason she was having difficulty breathing and nursing.  She was unable to nurse without our assistance which required us to hold her head on the nipple. Otherwise she would bounce off.  To further complicate matters, she is deaf, has
hydrocephalus, and both of her hips are completely out of their sockets.

However, she has the best spirit given her shortcomings.  She is always happy to see you and other dogs.
