Thank you for your interest in a rescued dog.  Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today.  We'll update as more information is known. 

We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture.  While we like to know what you like in looks, a dog is more than a pretty face.  Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home.  We want to create furever families. 

Are you looking to adopt within the next 30 days?  If so please visit our webpage at and complete the application.  You'll find it in the menu on the left hand side.  You'll also find a total listing of all our dogs available.

What kind of home would be best for me?  One with out stairs.  Cathy has trouble going down steps. She has no trouble going up steps.  One that is quiet and routine oriented.

What is my personality like?   She is a funny little old lady, always tottering about and wanting to be part of the action.  

Note that Cathy has either a very deep inner ear infection that we can't see, some vertigo orr depth perception problems or vestibular disease. Short of an MRI we can't really tell there is not much except keeping her off stairs that can be done.  She's sweet just the way she is.  

Update for 12 Dogs Of Christmas:

You will normally see Cathy Rose bumping into something, or tripping trying to go down stairs. She is a silly girl but definetly has a mind of her own. She has a neurological condition that causes her to be clumsy, she also doesn't have a "off" switch for food. She does not need approval from anyone and lives in her own little world! She is fine with other dogs but she will not allow anyone to run her over. Cathy Rose does not know how to do any basic commands but she loves treats. She does not walk on a leash well at all.. and will sit in the dirt demanding to me carried to where you're taking her. Her favorite things to do is sleeping and of course eating. She would be a great dog for someone that cannot be home all of the time, She does not care for much attention but also doesn't mind having her back scratched either.

How I act when I first meet new people:  Cathy will probably be busy exploring the yard or the chairs or whatever strikes her fancy.  She is sweet once she focuses on you.  

House trained?  Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours.  We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

My age:  Records indicate about 7 but she looks more like she is 10

Please note - we do not ship dogs.  If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip.

To apply, please visit our webpage at and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application.

Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home.   You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc.  Others here may be a better fit for you.  It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description.  Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a  dog not in our listings yet.  We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.
