Hello everyone,
My name is Phoebe and I am fabulous. I am a lover with a heart of gold. I love being with my people and curling up with them either in bed or on their laps. After all, I am a lap dog. I LOVE going for walks and car rides so if you plan to open a door watch out because I am always ready to go. My foster dad takes me out whenever he goes anywhere, except when he’s on that 2 wheeled thing. When he takes that thing I go into my kennel without too much fuss but I make sure to whimper so he knows how sad I am. I like to hang out with the other pups here. They have 2 little ones and a medium sized one. Two of them even kind of look like me. There are also some miniature people here, one of which is rather loud and annoying, with whom I sometimes hang out. 

Like I said before there are other dogs here and I get along with them pretty well. There is a little white one who yells at me from time to time but I’m ok with it. She’s just cranky and I try to get along with everybody. My foster parents have a dog door for their dogs and it’s a little small for me but I figured out that I can sort of crawl through it if I want to but it’s much easier to let someone let me out by opening the door. 

I love going outside for walks with my foster dad. We go outside with their Springer and she gets to just run around (she just runs around in circles) and I am attached to a leash that my foster dad clips to his fancy belt. He says it is because I hurt his arm a little by pulling when I get excited or onto a scent that is awesome. After all I am a pointer and my nose is always going strong. When I start to pull he just stops until I call down, which doesn’t take long, and we continue our journey.

My foster dad keeps my kennel open and I go in and out as I please. I even think about napping in it but I prefer this giant dog bed, dad says that it is a bean bag, it is awesome. I really like curling up on the couch and sleeping. My foster mom sends me downstairs though because she says I snore too loud. I think she has super powered hearing though. It’s ok though because I can just go hop on the big guy’s lap with the other dogs.

I’m even good about food. My foster brother and sisters have a communal dish that they share from and I have my very own bowl. They gave me this fancy food for a while but I am preferring the stuff they give the other dogs. I don’t growl or anything when they sniff my bowl. They are nice though and don’t try to eat from my bowl and I leave theirs alone. I do like my treats too so if you open some chips or crackers or anything that makes noise expect me to come over and stare at you in expectation. I just stare until someone tells me to go lay down. 

There are 4 kids here who I like to play with. They sit with me and snuggle me on the couch and the bean bag bed. I like to read stories with them before they go to school in the mornings. They might be annoying at times but I don’t let it bother me. If they get to be too much I just get up and go somewhere else, usually to one of the grown ups for cuddles.

Foster dad here: Phoebe is amazing and has been since I first picked her up. She rides wonderfully and is really calm. She does get excited about going out for walks or rides. She might be a bit large for most to consider a lap dog but that doesn’t stop her from thinking she is one. We haven’t had any issues with her getting into things she isn’t supposed to such as things on the counter or the trash. Her nose will find things that you have forgotten. She loves being with her humans and will whimper when anyone leaves the house without her. We have 4 kids who she adores. We also have 3 other dogs in the house and they all get along quite well. She can be a bit stubborn but so long as you remain firm she will obey her commands. She would be fine in any type of home but best in one that is active outdoors with people around for her to love and play with.

ADOPTION FEE: $200 includes spay, DAPP, Rabies, Bordetella, Microchip, Deworm and Vet check!

We now have fosters, volunteers, and supporters that have grown the rescue into something we never imagined. We are volunteer run, and we are not government funded. We run off community donations.
