Fence needed? No - these two are used to leash walking.  their idea of outside time is potty outside and come back in

What kind of home would be best for me?   Samantha and Sweet Tea are looking for a laid back home, no kids, and lots of loving time.  They are retired - they don't want long walks, they want long cuddles.  They won't expect you to take them for agility, they are long past that.  They want to be your best friends.  We were told the girls are the same age but Tea is more mobile than Samantha.  

Tea and Samantha don't like to be confined - they want the run of the house.  Tea likes to explore her surroundings and see what is going on in her world.  

What is my personality like?    Sweet and loving and affectionate and caring.  

Update 12 Dogs Of Christmas:

Tea is the vibrant one aside from her sister. She has a little more energy to keep up with you than her sister does. Tea is a "in your face" type of dog.. More so than Samantha. she wants to know what you're doing and why! She adores to be shown affection and will sit completely still and content while doing so. She loves treats and knows how to sit.. she is also eager to give you a handshake. Sweet Tea is a free spirit kind of girl and does not care about other dogs being around.. she is not hard to please. Both of the girls are very sweet and calm natured and would make a great addition to the right family. They just want to love and be loved!

How I act when I first meet new people:   The girls love people.  They will greet you, love you and treat you like your their best friend. They love affection and will give it right back.

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: 12 years old - reportedly a birthdate of 1/27/2004

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.
