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.

Special Needs? yes, Peaches is heartworm positive.  She will be sent home with a one year supply of heartworm preventative as part of her slow kill heartworm treatment.

Peaches has heart worms, a parasite that lives in the heart and if left untreated, will kill   . We are currently treating Peaches with what is called the “slow kill” heartworm treatment.  
In slow kill, the dog is given 30 days of an antiobiotic called doxycycline.  After the 30 days, the dog is given a monthly dose of an ivermectin based heartworm preventative.  .We use Triheart.    
CPR provides adopters of heartworm positive dogs 12 months of Triheart, an ivermectin based heartworm preventative that is crucial to the success of heartworm treatment.
Heartworm positive dogs are available for adoption at ½ the normal rate listed for each dog.

What kind of home would be best for me?  Peaches is a shy little wallflower that would fit best in a home with a kind patient adopter that will give her time to blossom into a confident self assured dog.  She is great with other dogs and would do well with another dog to help build her confidence. Preferrably no small children.

What is my personality like?   Peaches is shy and reserved.  She came from a very sheltered life where she basically lived on the back porch with a couple other Chihuahuas, was never allowed in the house, and she never got a lot of attention or affection.  She is under socialized with people, but given enough time with the right person, we feel Peaches will become a loyal loving companion.  She just needs time and space to get comfortable with new people and new places.  She is a sweetheart and would be a great lapdog.  Peaches gives the sweetest, most gentle kisses. Once Peaches opens up you will quickly see her sassy side! She gets along fine with other dogs, but she is not one to bully or take advantage of. She is head strong and will let any dog know she can't be pushed around. 

How I act when I first meet new people:  Peaches is very shy and nervous around new people.

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.

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.
