Below are some of the furkids who have gone to wonderful forever home. You will see that their original information is still listed with them. The reason we don't give follow up information is to protect the identities of the adoptive homes. But we did want you to know that these pups have actually been adopted.
Winnie came in to a new shelter to us around 6/10/2019 as a stray. As soon as we heard about her (June 21st). we contacted the shelter immediately. They were in an overcrowding situation and were grateful that we did so and requested that we take her quickly. She moved into foster care the following day and scheduled for her first vet appointment. More later ...
UPDATE (6/22/2019) We have learned a lot about Winnie in the past 24 hours. She is smart, with a dominant NON-aggressive personality. She loves to grab your forearm with the strength of a gorilla and hump your elbow (that can be worked with!). She is NOT potty trained, and, while she learned how to use a doggy door quickly, the concept of what it is for (other than running through for play) escapes her. She loves playing with her senior foster brother and toys, but she rattles the nerves of her senior foster sisters who prefer a more sedate lifestyle. She is extremely energetic. Winnie has a true "all puppy" personality!
UPDATE (6/26/2019) Winnie has now been fully vetted and appears to be extremely healthy. She is UTD on vaccinations, on heart-worm prevention and spayed. Best guess, Winnie is maybe 1-1/2 years old, so still very much a puppy (Schips tend to start mellowing out about age 5 but are all puppy until that point!). She has a lot to learn but is very smart. She is highly social with other dogs and people. Winnie is wide open and needs a LOT of run time due to her exuberant energy. Winnie is not fully potty trained but is starting to learn that outside is the place to go. She does have a little bit of a chewing problem, so watch your shoes!
Winnie would love a home with a playful, social playmate and a fenced yard to run and play in. She is a major risk at this time for darting out of an open or non-secured door or gate and is far faster than you can imagine.
We are taking applications for this fun and loving little girl.

This little (13 pounds) girl is about to turn 8 yrs old.
She loves people. She does not do well with other pets and will bite them. She is marking in her current situation. She is trained at level 2 agility.
"Kayten" needs to find a home, preferably without other pets (she will charge a cat) that can help her feel secure and not feel the need to mark.
Missy is a 13 yr old female who lost her family due to owner age/illness.
Her world was turned upside down at age 13, but she is settling in nicely, with her foster home that includes 2 schipperke's & Pom x. She is quite active & for her age, she spends most of the day up, walking around the house & outside exploring the fenced yard. After supper she is done for the day, and will find ALL her comfy fleece blankets on the couch and calls it a night. She is potty trained, and will go to the door to let you know.
She came in with some flea allergies, and was chewing on her paws and has a few small patches of hair loss. Her foster mom is addressing this issue to clear her up. She did go in for a medical work up and we are waiting on test results. We will post a new update once we have those results.
A note from TJ's foster mom.
TJ is a very funny boy. He likes to hang out with me when I am working from home. I always have to start conference calls with “ I have dogs and it’s inevitable that they will bark at the most inappropriate time during the meeting” usually TJ starts it off just to get my attention. He really is a good boy. But one of my foster failures is just crazy and he sets her off. He would just do better in a home he can be loved and not have to compete. Give him a chance! He has so many years of love left.
TJ is a sweet older gentleman just looking for a family of his own. He is quite active for his age and loves to play in the yard & bark at the neighbors. He learned the dog door very easily, knows to sit for treats & meals, and knows where his dog beds & safe spaces are. If I can’t find him, he is usually in the “cage” or hanging on the deck. He has no issues with storms, rain or snow. When he gets bored, he can look for things to get into, so keep your trash cans covered! He enjoys belly rubs & getting buried in blankets. He can be quite silly at times. Walks fine on a leash & no problem in the car.
He does like people but favors women, and he loves little girls. (A discovery we made when I hired a dog sitter while I was away on business & she brought her daughter over. He is so good with her!) He can be a couch potato and likes to sit at my feet while watching TV.
TJ does have his quirks. He is competitive with my other 2 younger girl dogs. But I think it is because he wants to be the boss and they won’t let him. So sometimes, there is a little growling conversation but nothing more. He really doesn’t “play” with the girls, but he watches when they do. He does interact with them when there is something fun to bark at. I have no real information how he will do with cats, but I would caution against. TJ is also on a maintenance drug for anxiety. He gets 1 small pill every day & easily ingests it with his wet food.
The best home would be one that he can be the “boss”. He would be fine with a submissive or older dog. I work from home, so he is used to my being around. But, he does fine when I travel and is always happy to see his sitters. As far as dogs go, he is actually pretty easy to handle.

Did you know that Spunky means courageous and determined?
Well, that's me! I'm Spunky. I am courageous, but, most importantly, I am determined to find my new home.
There are several important things you should know about me. I am only 12-1/2 years young and have been fully vetted and spay. I walk on a leash and get along with other dogs. Being the sweet, Spunky girl I am, I don't bark much. Not only am I housebroken, but I will scratch at the door when I want to go out. And, of course, I love to be brushed and have your full attention.
And stupid Squirrels don't scare me. I keep my figure trim by chasing them, so you don't have to worry about them bothering your bird feeder.
But one thing does scare me, and that is stairs. I'm afraid of going up and down them.
