Story
All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated, and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fees vary. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $750 Wendy Darling is a 4 year old Maltipoo (Maltese x Poodle) who is looking for her Peter Pan to take her on a magical flight to her forever home! Wendy was rescued from the shelter with her Lost Boy siblings and we promised her that her wish upon a star had come true. One flight (car ride) later, and she was safely in the arms of her new foster who promised to give her endless love until she found her new people. We had to give Miss Darling a haircut due to extreme matting, but she took it like a champ and feels much better now that her old coat and life have been released from her shoulders. Wendy is a petite gal who promises to bring so much laughter and light to her lucky forever family.    Darling is a cuddly and happy girl who has a fabulous personality and a pouch of pixie dust she spreads wherever she goes! She trotted right into her foster home and made herself at home, giving kisses and cuddles to anyone near her. She loves to be near her people but is also happy to keep herself busy when she needs to. Darling would be an amazing WFH buddy, as she is content to hang out near you as you handle your daily Zoom calls. She loves snuggles and is always happy to curl up on any open lap for some well-deserved rubs and scratches. Her hair may be short right now, but once her coat grows back in she will be the envy of the neighborhood! Darling hasn’t met a stranger and wins even the most dog-wary people over. She takes love from anyone willing to give it to her. She is smart and food motivated and loves learning new things, picking up sit in under a day! Darling has a fabulous temperament and is the ideal blend of energy. She is happy to go on walks and adventures but is also content to hang out on the couch and catch up on her shows! If you are looking for a magical companion, you won’t find a cuter or more loving dog than our Wendy Darling!  Wendy starts her morning at 7 AM with some couch time and cuddles before she heads outside for a potty break. Once she comes back inside, she gets her breakfast followed by some more cuddles before her foster family gets ready for the day. Throughout the morning, Darling spends time outside lounging in the sun, occasionally getting up to get her zoomies on. In the afternoon, Darling gets a walk around the neighborhood before she comes back home for some more playtime and cuddles. She gets dinner at 5 PM and then finds the nearest lap to spend some time snuggling into. At night, Darling hangs out on the couch and watches some Netflix (or a classic Disney movie) while her foster family unwinds from the day. She plays with some toys and gets herself ready for bed. After one last potty break at 9 PM, Wendy snuggles into the closest bed and drifts off to sleep.  Darling is living with two canine foster siblings and gets along well with them. She does have some resource guarding issues but takes correction quickly. She would ideally like to be the one and only object of her forever family’s affection. She gets along with the cat in the house and adores all the humans she has met. She walks amazingly on the leash and loves her daily romps. Wendy Darling is excited to find her new people ready to give her a lifetime of love and affection. She deserves to be adored and doted on, as she is just too adorable. Wendy promises that once you find the second star to the right, she will be waiting for you as you head straight on till morning!    Wendy Darling is an option for those with previous dog-owning experience, even if that experience is less recent. Kids in the home should be over the age of 10. June 17, 2024, 1:26 pm

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated, and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fees vary. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $600 Remy is a 5 year old Maltese x Yorkie mix who can’t wait to try the flavors of the world with his forever family! This handsome dude was rescued from the shelter after his former home was moving and decided not to take him along for the journey. Well, we picked him up and away we went. Remy weighs 15 pounds and has so much personality contained in such a tiny little body! He has a lower shedding coat that will potentially require grooming or a dedicated family brusher.     Remy is a happy and handsome gentleman who is a world-class cuddler. He loves being with his people and finds his throne in your lap. He loves to hang out on the couch as you get your work done, but is always eager for his walks or playtime with his toys. Remy has never met a stranger he didn’t quickly befriend. He loves attention and will blink his big, precious eyes at you when he wants more pets. He loves to give kisses and will shower you in love from the minute you meet him! This dog is young at heart and loves his toys. However, he is great at matching the energy of any situation, so if you’d rather have a day on the couch, he’s ready for that too! We can tell that Remy bonds quickly and will faithfully adore you for the long run. As long as you’re next to Remy, he’s interested in any adventure.  Remy wakes up at 7 AM and lounges in his bed as his foster family gets their days started. He gets breakfast at 8 AM and then heads out on a short potty walk. During the morning, Remy snoozes and suns himself on the deck. He gets a few short potty breaks during the day in between Zoom calls, which he loves to participate in. In the afternoon, he gets some playtime before he heads out on a longer walk as the weather cools off. After everyone finishes their days, Remy gets his dinner at 7 PM before he spends an hour or so zooming around with his toys. After a last potty break, he curls up on the couch for TV time before heading to his crate for the night to sleep.  Remy lives with a canine foster sibling currently and gets along well with him. He would love a playmate in his new home but would also be just fine as a solo dog. Remy walks very well on the leash and greets his doggy neighbors politely. Remy will thrive in just about any kind of home as he is super adaptable. He would love to be your dream WFH buddy. Remy is ready for his forever people and hopes it will be you!    Remy is an option for any home, regardless of prior dog owning experience. He would be an incredible option for homes without prior dog-owning experience. Kids in the home should be over the age of 6.June 17, 2024, 1:26 pm

Grover was surrendered to our rescue when his former home was no longer able to care for him.

Grover is an adorable and loving gentleman who can’t wait to find his picture perfect new family. Grover weighs 15 pounds. He is a lighter shedding dog but won’t be an option for those with true allergies.    Grover is a fabulous gentleman who wants to love you and have you love him. He is a very calm and reserved dude who loves a chill cuddle marathon on the couch. He makes himself part of the household instantly and will make you believe he has always been there. Grover is happy to go on walks and join you on errands when you’re up for it, but he’s also thrilled to spend a day curled up on the couch for a movie marathon. He’s easy like that! We know that Grover will make his lucky new home so happy, as he has so much love to share with the world. While he hasn’t quite figured out the whole toy thing yet, he’s very curious and smart. He’s always aware of what’s happening in the house, even if he can’t be bothered to get up and investigate. Same dude. Same. Grover promises that a life with him in it will be one of endless cuddles and snoozes.  Grover starts his morning between 7 and 9 AM with a trip outside for potty. He is happy to sleep in for as long as you want! After he comes back inside, he eats his breakfast and then spreads out on his bed for a long nap. He spends his days lounging happily with trips outside for potty breaks and romps as needed. In the evening, Grover gets a long walk around the neighborhood where he greets all his doggie friends. He has dinner at 6 PM and then spends some time lounging on the couch with his foster family as they unwind from the workday. After one last potty trip at 10 PM, Grover goes into his crate for dreams of cookies and cuddles to come!  Grover lives with two canine foster siblings and they get along well. They spend their days laying on the couch and hanging out. Grover does well on a leash and enjoys his walks. He adores his people and would love a home where he can receive all the love and affection he deserves. He is such a special and amazing guy. What are you waiting for!!   Grover is an option for just about any home, regardless of prior dog owning experience. Kids in the home should be over the age of 8.June 17, 2024, 1:26 pm

Story
Kristmas was fearful and very nervous at the shelter when we rescued her. She is a special behavior needy dog. Kristmas needs time to warm up and feel safe. She can be handled and picked up. She was neglected with matts and had very long toe nails. She was probably too isolated prior and then left in the streets. Kristmas was fine meeting another dog on leash. She was nervous at our vet but they were able to care for her and clip her long nails. She is now in a quiet foster home and relaxing. At first she stayed in her crate inside dog pen and just watched. The next day she felt safer and ate a little. Finally came out and walked out to yard for potty biz. Sniffing and hanging out with the foster home's gentle friendly small dog. Kristmas needs time to decompress and feel safe. Will need an experienced guardian and quiet home situation with attached back yard. More info. to come. She will only eat home made cooked food. Foster home makes chicken or turkey with rice and veggies. She won't eat store bought kibble nor can. Update on day 2: At foster home she is very slowly warming up. She follows their 2 dogs around and out to yard. She needs a very experienced home with another dog to feel safe. Best no kids or older kids 10 yrs and up. She will flinch at fast movement and is head shy. She needs more time in her foster home to learn and be less fearful. She slowly will jump on the sofa and go to foster mom to sniff hands. Kristmas is eating very little now and likes Weruva canned food. She is still too nervous to eat a full meal. So maybe in another 2 weeks she will be normal but shy behavior. She was probably too isolated since a puppy so new people and places make her very nervous. Need to move slow and let her set her pace to trust and feel safe. She will not walk on leash but can be guided on leash at home with another dog around. Will take time for her adjust. She is not a dog for social outings or parks. March 2024: She is now walking on leash with a harness. Follows people and foster home's dog on walks. She was a very picky eater but foster home makes home-made meals of meat/veggies/rice for her and their dog. She now loves her food! June 2024: She's continued to improve. She is very loving dog now. Loves to go for walks and loves to run in the park. She gets along with her older brother Tony (terrier mix). Krissy is very gentle easy going loves dogs at the park. She is still a little shy with humans but allows strangers to pet her now. She needs a gentle loving family. She is still young so she loves to run in nature. Overall very loving and easy going dog. Doesn’t like fast movements or loud voices or shouting. She was good at groomer too.June 17, 2024, 12:55 am
