My story

Salis was dumped and left to fight an uphill battle against a laundry list of health problems six whole months ago. Faced with diagnoses of heart worm positive, erlichia positive, yeast and general skin infections, ear infections, and worms, this old man never let it keep him down.

Now he's forced to face yet another battle...standing out among a sea of eager puppies. You see, Salis likes the quiet life. He doesn't have the puppy energy that people are so drawn to. He doesn't come running to meet every new person that walks in and he certainly doesn't go out of his way to fight for attention.

Being a senior dog, some might see Salis as a tough sell, but we certainly don't think so. He's bright and loving and just wants some good scratches and a comfy bed to sleep on. It hardly seems fair that the odds have been stacked against him.

Can you help us get this handsome fella's face out there by sharing this post? We just know there's a kind-hearted human that can give Salis all the love he deserves...they just have to connect first.

Salis is a big boy, but he's low energy so outside of lease weight limits, he'd be a breeze in any sized home! He would do perfectly in a household with or without other dogs, though we don't know how he feels about our feline friends just yet.

Now that he's doing so much better, it's time for him to get spoiled away from all these noisy pups around him. If you think you can provide that cozy environment through fostering or adopting, please fill out our application here:

And please feel free to contact us directly in our inbox if you have any questions! ❤

Salis is on Simparca monthly for flea and tick prevention and on Ivermectin monthly for heartworm treatment/prevention. He is microchipped, neutered, and up to date on his vaccines.

Paw Paws will continue to treat Salis's heartworms until he is heartworm negative.

Additional adoption info

All adoptions require an application process that includes but not limited to a home check and background references that will be verified. We also provide a foster to adopt program that allows both the dog and family to adapt and know one another before finalizing the adoption.

Go meet their pets

We do not participate in adoption fares or pet store locations. Our rescue can be found at select charity events. Dates and locations along with rescue updates are posted to our website each Wednesday and Sunday. All dogs that become available for adoption receive an adoption clearance from our veterinarian.

Our rescue enables opportunity. We rescue those that need our assistance at a second chance in life and place them in loving and nurturing homes so that they understand what unconditional love truly is. Our rescue is transparent and all vetting records are available upon request for each animal you are interested in adopting.
