Story
Handsome 10-year-old Jax will make an excellent companion to the person or persons who can help him feel safe. A purebred rat terrier weighing 25 lbs., Jax has been working on reducing his anxiety, which was likely caused by the discomfort of skin allergies, a manifestation of a cancerous mast cell tumor. With the tumor removed and Jax cancer free for over one year, his skin issues are now under control (although he must still avoid food containing chicken). Today Jax is a much happier dog, who likes sunning himself and also walking, jogging, and playing ball; physical activity, in turn, helps further reduce any residual anxiety. With proper introduction, Jax will even play nicely with new dogs, more quickly enjoying the company of smaller dogs, especially females. However, he can scuffle with any dog who ignores his body language or doesn't respect his space. He could easily be a single dog or live with one other dog who is independent or who at least honors boundaries. Due to his moderate prey drive, Jax shouldn't live with cats or other small pets.   Jax adjusts to new routines well and sticks close to his humans. He loves to cuddle but isn't really a lapdog. He's polite around new people if they're introduced in a positive way. However, he hates being picked up, and he'll defend that sentiment with his teeth and wouldn't enjoy being around children. Although he's no fan of crates, it's not really an issue, as he has impeccable house manners. He has never had an indoor potty accident, 'emptied' the trash, or counter surfed. Life has given this good boy a sensitive soul. If you nurture it, Jax will give you his heart.

Story
Found as a stray with her sister and her presumed mom, 6-lb. Cherish may look like a puppy, but her adult teeth suggest that she's likely to be 1-2 years old. She'll also remind you of a puppy in other ways. For example, she's dependent on being near humans or other dogs. In her foster home, if she's not trailing her foster mom, she's probably with her sister, Charmy. Like a baby duckling, Cherish will clamor to catch up if she loses sight of you, and she may not be happy if you have to leave, but she'll eventually calm down. A pretty sound sleeper, Cherish loves sleeping under the covers with her person, but be careful not to roll on her! (Needless to say, her size precludes her living with small children or anyone who can't handle her gently.) Her favorite activities? Cuddling in a lap and eating! In fact, she 'cherishes' both to the point of growling and snapping at any dog who comes too close when she's enjoying either one.   Cherish is also like a puppy when she's walking on leash. She loves her walks, but the leash tries to entangle her legs, forcing her to give a pitiful look that means, 'Pick me up please!' Nevertheless, she's friendly towards new people and dogs she meets, and like Spider-Man she can climb human bodies vertically to reach their kissing zone, i.e. their face. (She also uses those Spidey skills to climb any mesh or perforated gates you might use to contain her.) Her friendliness doesn't extend to the cats and other small creatures she may encounter, however, so she would probably do best in a home without cats.    Cherish is doing well with her house-training, but she'll sometimes have accidents if she can't get outdoors in time. Her other house manners are good; she doesn't chew on furniture or dig holes into the couch. However, when driving, if you don't have Cherish crated or securely tethered, the little scamp will end up in your lap! Sure, it may take a little work to turn this puppy wannabe into a princess, but you'll cherish the result.Our adoption fee is $200 for adult dogs or $250 for puppies under 6 months old.

Story
Agent Mulder has escaped Roswell with Agent Scully and he knows the truth is out there...the truth that his forever home awaits! Mulder and Scully were found as strays, rescued from a Roswell, New Mexico shelter, and transported to the State of Washington. Now they are ready for alien abduction adoption.    Estimated to be 1 year old and weighing a solid 20 lbs., Mulder has a long body, short legs, and one spunky, happy attitude! He may be a mix of rat terrier with other adorable breeds all blessed with healthy prey drives. If it's little and moves quickly, Mulder's on it, so he shouldn't be with cats or other small pets. However, he gets along with every large and small dog he has met, with the possible exception of the one who is probably his littermate, Scully. The two have a turbulent relationship with frequent scuffles, so they will both do much better once they're separated. Mulder has been friendly with every person he has met and would probably do well with older, responsible children, who know how to interact gently with dogs. He would love to be part of a family that's active and that includes him in their activities. He would also be very happy having another dog to play with.    Mulder is doing well with his house-training. He wants to go potty outdoors but can have accidents if he doesn't have quick access to the outside. Mulder is clever, sweet, and eager to please his humans. He'll make an excellent companion, one who is eager to explore the great unknown, i.e. a home where he'll be loved forever.

Scully and Mulder were found as strays, rescued from a Roswell, New Mexico shelter, and transported to the State of Washington. Now they are ready for alien abduction adoption.   Estimated to be at least 1 year old and weighing 17 lbs., Scully has a long body, short legs, large head, and a slightly shy personality. However, when he warms up, he is very happy and affectionate and loves to cuddle! He may be a mix of rat terrier with other adorable breeds all blessed with healthy prey drives. Little fast-moving pets, as well as cats, had best beware! He's very friendly towards other dogs, large and small, (after he gets to know them) with the possible exception of the one who is probably his littermate, Mulder. The two have a turbulent relationship and frequent scuffles, so they will both do much better once they're separated. Scully has been friendly with all people he has met and would probably do well with older, responsible children, as long as they are gentle when interacting with him. He will be happy with an active, understanding, and attentive family and would love another canine friend to help him with his confidence.   Scully has been doing well with house-training. He prefers to go potty outdoors but can have accidents if he doesn't have access to outside. This clever, sweet boy will make an excellent companion to those who have earned his trust. He'll be eager to make you happy and to join you on an exciting adventure into the unknown, i.e. a home where he'll be loved forever.

Story
Hi, I am Shadow,They say that black dogs have a harder time getting adopted. I am not sure why because I think black is beautiful. I am an adult around 4 years old. I have lost all that puppy naughtiness, but I still love to play and cuddle and generally be a good girl. I will need some patience because I have a lot to learn when it comes to even the basics, but I am a quick study. Oh, and treats usually help with the learning. I am an active dog who would love to go for a good run every day. If you are a hiker, I think I would love that too. I am good with leash walking; I try not to pull and stay close to you. I like to play with other dogs once I am properly introduced. I haven’t been around children much and cats are made to be chased. Only my opinion! Right now, I spend most of my time outside because my foster mom works, but when I am inside, I know not to do any business in the house that is only for outside.I haven’t had many toys, I am content with a stick or a plastic bottle. Maybe you could teach me to chase a ball and bring it back to you. That would be fun!If it sounds like we could be a family together then just fill out the application and we can meet on a Zoom call.Could I be your little,Shadow To get more information go to https://hope4lapawz.org/adopt and click on the dog's photo. There you will see any videos, more photos and details.
