Age: 2 year
Breed: Boxer mix
Adoption fee: $500

  • Spayed
  • 4DX tested negative
  • Microchipped

Meet Shortcake (Sadie)!

Shortcake has gone by the name Sadie since being in her foster home and she’s caught on right away to it. She is a very sweet and happy girl, she will wiggle her whole body every time you get home because she’s so excited! She is crate trained, and house trained. She can be dog reactive on leash, and a dedicated owner will need to work on this in her forever home. She is not good with other dogs and cats (high prey drive). For this reason she will need a home with no other animals.

Sadie is very intelligent and eager to please. She gets along well with children (10+ preferably due to her size and energy), although she is on the smaller side for a boxer (roughly 35 lbs). She loves going on walks and playing with her toys, but she also loves sleeping with her people all day. She rarely barks and would be fine being in an apartment as long as her owners take her on walks. She is overall a very sweet girl and would make any family happy. She has a limp, and has been seen by a specialist for it. They’ve determined she will eventually develop arthritis due to her underdevelopment in the elbow and may require medication at some point but for now is content on fish oil and glucosamine.

Rye – Available!

Breed: Chihuahua
Adoption fee: $500

  • UTD on vaccinations

Meet Rye!

Rye is looking for a patient owner that is willing to continue his training at his own pace. He is currently being fostered by our trainer, Amanda. Here is what she has to say: “Rye started out being very fearful, and was not used to being heard at a low level of stress, so would start out with big displays to keep people away, and to express himself. We have worked together to gain trust between each other, and I've spent lots of time showing him that he can express himself with polite behavior, and be heard, rather than jumping to a big display right away. He wanted people, or any threat to stay far away, so they would not hurt him or scare him. "Look how big and scary I am, stay away!" Was his approach. I had patience to leave him be, and to allow him to come to me, and to do things at his pace, rather than rush anything and go above his comfort level, thus causing him to need to ask me to back off. Using many, many consent tests gave him the trust and courage to know that I will always listen if he doesn't like something. I also got to learn what he likes and doesn't like this way, remembering the things he didn't like and doing my best to avoid them or adjust the environment so the things he doesn't like, or is fearful of, are minimized. The right adopter is going to need to have a patient mindset, that is able to see Rye as a sensitive little guy who needs respect and cooperative care, and is willing to work within his skillset and comfort. In exchange, he will cuddle you silly once he trusts you. He likes nothing more than to climb up on a lap for a good snuggle :)”

Rye is currently on anti-anxiety medication that costs approximately 50$ a month. We will require his adopter to take 2 mandatory training sessions with our trainer Amanda from The Canine Clubhouse to make sure he is set up for success. He will need a quiet home with no children, or other dogs and cats. He would also do well in an apartment (he is 4 pounds) but loves his walks !
