Boston is a 1-2 year old Boxer who was found limping on the streets after his owner moved away and left him. A brave and kind soul took him to the vet, where he was found to have a badly broken leg that had healed poorly.
So far, sufficient funds have been raised for his vetting, medications, neutering, and amputation, but he needs a forever home and a foster home for the holidays.
So far, more than $4300 has been donated to Boston’s care. His foster mom has gone above and beyond, often shouldering the cost of his medical care until more folks chip in.
Boston suffers from some separation anxiety when he’s alone and had an incident with another dog, but his foster mom says he’s affectionate and has a lap dog personality. He appears to do well in a crate.
Boston has been going through obedience school, and is healing well, but his foster mom needs a place for him to stay for at least the holidays, preferably until he finds a permanent home.
If you think your home might be the right place for Boston to hang out for the holidays, or if you’d like to donate to his care, click here for his GoFundMe page.
Joshua D – German Shepherd/Great Dane
Joshua D is a real gentleman, able to charm any human into falling in love with him! He is smart and easy to train, we think he may be a mix of German Shepherd and Great Dane. He would do best in a home where he is the only dog. He is tall and lanky about 95 pounds, and about 3 1/2 years old. Although he follows basic commands, he is still a bit of puppy and needs more training. Because of size he needs a fence of at least six feet and a home with kids over age 10 or so. Although he follows basic commands, he is still a bit of puppy and needs more training. He barks occasionally . He is potty trained (phew!). He needs a home where he can get the attention he deserves! Come meet Joshua D and fall in love!
Shadi – Chihuahua/Dachshund mix
Shadi is an approximately 4 year old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix. This little momma is the perfect size at around 10 pounds, and she’s got all the great qualities from both breeds!
Shadi was found with her son, Magena, having been dumped at a business park at the side of the incredibly busy 316 Highway. She was understandably very shaken by her experience. To make matters worse, she was malnourished. But, after a long road to recovery, this little girl is ready to find a forever home and boy does she deserve it!
Shadi’s foster mom reports that she is the sweetest little dog EVER! She loves to snuggle up to her human and sleep knowing she is safe and loved. She enjoys playing with other dogs, but would need to be in a home where there are no cats or very young children. She is alert when visitors arrive, but will settles down quickly.
The perfect home for Shadi would be one where she had an understanding, patient owner, with a fellow dog to play with, and a fenced-in backyard where she could run freely. Shadi, true to her Chihuahua DNA, is extremely loyal – but it will take a dedicated person to show her much TLC. Could that be you?
Carmel – Golden Retriever mix
I am only a year and a half old so my story is pretty short so far: somehow as a baby I wound up in a kill shelter…I know it’s hard to hear it but something had happened to me: my jaw was dislocated, I had scratches and stuff too, and I was afraid.
Can you blame me? I didn’t know what to expect when the Angels came and saved me, didn’t yet know I would never have to be afraid again, that stories sometimes have happy endings.
I am a golden retriever mix. I LOVE to play outside so my dream home would have a fenced in yard and maybe even a really sweet dog to play with. I love kids! If I see a child I always want to go say hello. I like playing fetch with the little guy in my foster home, he is just a toddler and we have so much fun together! Sometimes I may get a little nervous around new people or bossy dogs. Hey, not everybody is a Prince Charming! My foster mom says I am a great running partner and I would love to go running every day. After all of that fun I love to cuddle with my family at night.
Since I am already spayed and up to date on all my shots I am ready to be adopted right now. You can adopt me for only $25 this month!
