Story
Friendly and loving Bentley is ready to jump in the car and go on adventures with you. Though he is a tad shy at first, he is quick to warm up and is enjoying getting more walk time. He loves to sniff around, hunt.... and he LOVES to play an easy game of Fetch! This handsome little fellow will make for a loving and engaged companion. He is dog friendly out in the world, but is a better candidate as a solo dog in the home. He prefers center of the universe status, though with some parameters - he can't feel he is in charge, or owns the couch. Because he was not doing well in a kennel environment, he came up to our Sanctuary where he is having a blast! He needs a more predictable environment. He is possessive of couches and likely the bed, so he needs to have strict guidelines, strong leadership and controls in the home environment. Best to sleep in a crate, or his own private spot. But he really can be a most charming little man!

Story
 Hello, my name is Kobe.  I'm a 2-year-old Chihuahua/Dachshund/Hound mix boy that would love a forever home with you.  My current weight is 26 pounds and I should fully grown.  I am good with children and other dogs. I enjoy playing with my siblings and romping around in the yard with my toys. I  am hoping to get a home soon because I am still a young dog and I have been waiting for my family to find me.  I was rescued off the street with my brother, and have been living with my foster who has other dogs for me to play with, so if you have dogs I will be happy to have new siblings. I am sweet and playful, and you won't regret bringing this face into your life.  You should know that just because I share a name with a famous basketball player, full disclosure - I cannot play basketball.  I mean, I like playing with balls but they are too big to fit in my little mouth.  The video is of me when I was just a baby and a new one of me grown up.If you rent a house you must provide proof with application that you are able to have a dog almost 30 lbs.Applications are available here on the website under ADOPTION.I will come to you neutered and fully vetted. Adoption fee: $475.00  ##1503700##

Story
Fatboy must be named after the ice cream because he’s such a sweet treat! Fatboy can be a little reserved when he first meets you, but once he’s comfortable, he’ll give you some happy tail wags and will want to be your best friend. Fatboy spent some time in a foster home, and his foster mom reported that he was very affectionate and attentive. He loves to cuddle on the couch and get belly rubs, and he is perfectly happy to nap on the couch while you work or follow you around the house to see what you’re up to. He is very mellow, but he also has a fun, playful side and will run around to chase after toys or play tug with you. Fatboy is great on leash, and he loves to meet fellow canine friends and lived with another mellow dog in his foster home. He is housetrained and would make a wonderful addition to any home.

Story
Tonks is a sweet and silly 8.5 year old mutt that would love nothing more than to curl up on the couch or bed in a blanket sandwich (a la Princess and the Pea) next to her favorite people. While is not a dog that needs to be entertained, she would never say no to a walk, is a great on-leash hiking companion, and will play fetch in a pool. While she looks big in photos, she is just under 30 pounds and is easy to scoop up into your arms. She loves to greet her people at the front door with a toy in her mouth and tap-dance over to the couch for pets. While she was raised around cats and other dogs, her resource guarding tendencies towards animals have increased in recent years. This means that she will do things like growl and protect items that she thinks are hers, including like the couch, sticks, and her people. This has created an unpredictable inter-pet dynamic that has led us to keeping her separated and in need of a new guardian.

Story
Meet Al Dente and Casserole, a delicious dish just waiting to be eaten right up (figuratively, please) by you. Al Dente is an introvert who needs time to settle in and prefers to live with older children/adults. His eyebrows come with its own zip code and his Yorkshire scruff has the perfect amount of texture. Casserole is an extroverted lovebug who loves to spend quality time with her humans, taking short walks or just relaxing in a nice quiet spot. They are both such rock stars! If you find paparazzi lurking in your bushes waiting to catch a glimpse of them, just give them the shot they want; you don't want to make enemies with those guys. Here's some notes from their foster: 21 June 2024: Observations at 10 days in foster home: Casserole and Al Dente are just the silliest pair of dogs I have ever fostered! Both have revealed happy, well-behaved dogs with just enough foolishness to induce hours of laughter. They will thrive in a home where big personalities are appreciated, and love and attention are aplenty. They are a fan favorite of everyone at Muttvillle and who comes across their path! Over the past 10 days, they have settled into my home routine quite well. Al Dente appears reserved at first, but quickly, his facade is exposed-he is so loving and silly himself! FYI. I am calling them by their former names Buddy (Al Dente) and Twiggy (Casserole) as they seemed to find peace in the familiar. (I have never done this with a foster, but I tried it and noticed a big change in their listening and comfort.) Both are great eaters. Meal times are monitored as Casserole finishes hers and goes to Al Dente's bowl, and Al Dente just steps aside. This might be why Miss Casserole is on a weight loss journey. She's doing great; her weight loss has been slow and steady, just how we want it! These two are the best of friends. Al Dente is actually the one who induces play time, throwing his cute little body into Casserole, who usually rubs her body, belly up, on a rug, bed, or blanket! He tends to mimic her. They love their "walkies"! When I reach for their walking gear, they lose their minds! Excitement ensues. We don't go super far (about 2 city blocks, maybe 1/2 mile for now) but they truly enjoy trotting the streets. So what's the deal? These two are PERFECT and nothing they do is a bother. However, I've observed one opportunity for training. Casserole is the leader of the mild separation anxiety train. She wants to go! My guess is their former guardian never left the two alone so they are still getting used to the idea. After some howls and barks, both dogs settle. I believe they will get the hang of it as the duration of barks gets shorter each time I leave, and they are low enough that my neighbors note they have never heard them. Casserole Mrs. Personality. She wants your attention! She wants to be adored! But she'll settle when you say no and take her nonsense elsewhere. She's fearless and curious, and did I mention silly? She is a friend to all. To give you an idea, I finally let the pair on the bed for some snuggles in the morning. When it was time to get up, I placed Al Dente on the floor and reached for Casserole, who, without any hesitation, leaped straight into the air, Wylie Coyote style. No thought. No fear! I grabbed her before she got too far. She's up for any and every adventure. You would think her shortie legs and robust waistline would slow her down, but she's trying her hardest with trots around the block. Casserole has nothing but joy in her body! Al Dente You would think Mr. Al Dente would be pale compared to Casserole, but nope, he brings the ying to her yang. He's quiet and joyful, sharp and sweet. He is also a friend to everyone but sometimes greets other dogs with a few barks and jumps of excitement. He often uses low-rider Casserole as a podium - standing on her back when he is excited. He likes to snuggle or sit nearby and is never demanding of anything. His unique looks (yes, this fella has a lion's mane) are an instant hit. Out of 50+ foster dogs, he has been, by far, the easiest dog I have ever bathed. Just laid in the sink and patiently waited. 13 June 2024: Observations at 24 hours in foster home: The best way to describe this duo: Casserole is the extravagant, "you only live once," wealthy woman living life by the seat of her pants, while Al Dente is the shy, practical accountant in oversized glasses carefully following the whirlwind - "We need to curb your spending ma'am." The three adjectives I'd use to describe Casserole are spunky, on-the-go, and "Pet me! Love me! Choose me!". For Al Dente, I'd say calm, quiet, and observant. They balance each other out perfectly. Both appear to be potty trained. Both are great eaters with no guarding behaviors. Both walk on a leash fairly well. They are friends to everyone, humans and dogs alike, while Casserole is in your face, and Al Dente is her shy backup. They do great in the car. Both haven't barked at the door or anything yet. Despite Casserole's robust back end and short legs, she gets around really well. I think this will improve as she loses those extra ounces. She can get up and down stairs (and don't try to help her; she's got this.) Al Dente is a little stiff after waking up but generally fairly agile. They both can do a slow, around-the-block walk. Despite needing to be together, they will sleep in different beds next to each other. Casserole doesn't like it when Al Dente isn't in the room with her, but Al Dente doesn't mind a break from Mrs. Personality. Overall, I think this pair's ideal environment consists of any person, couple, or family who would love to have a pair of senior mutts that will make them laugh daily. They don't seem bothered by city life but wouldn't mind in a quiet place to call home. Whoever takes this couple home has found the perfect pair of sweet and sassy, chill and chaos (Casserole isn't chaos but makes for a nice play on words).

Story
The color violet is often associated with energy and mindfulness. Violet also represents the future, imagination, and dreams. This little Violet only has good energy. She is a social butterfly with heart filled eyes that look at you like you are the only soul in the world. She is an extrovert; she says hello to everyone in the room taking her time as she waddles around with a smile on her face! It almost feels to her like it's her responsibility to greet everyone. For 9 years she has been making people smile while wagging her voluptuous bod and tail. She would love to find a home where she could give her love to one person, a couple, or even a family. If you are looking for a mutt with a warm personality and a sweet disposition, Violet is the one for you! Here's some notes from her foster: Violet is becoming more like herself. She has a great walking pace and stamina. She is potty trained. Her energy level matches the room. She gets very interested in household activities, but she easily finds her way back to bed while we're working from home. She is comfortable sleeping in a dog bed on the floor next to our bed. She does not beg to get onto our bed, but simply falls right asleep in hers. She sleeps so soundly that we often have to wake her up in the morning or wake her from naps when it's time for walks. - Taking medication was never a problem, as she gobbles up her food, and pills are easily hidden in soft food. Which is what she eats, soft foods, and soft treats! She does just fine when left alone. No crying, no whining or barking, and within 5-10 minutes she goes to sleep until we get home. She behaves well on the leash. She is friendly toward other dogs and humans and gentle with small children. Does not seem affected by loud noises. She is calm during car rides. She can easily manage to go up and down a couple of shallow stairs or a curb, but she needs some support going up a full flight. She is hesitant to go down so we've been carrying her. She continues to be a dream! She is gentle and affectionate, and she is becoming more confident and independent in our home life and routine every day.
