Evie was very shy when she came to our rescue. Fearful, especially of men, but we could tell there was a wonderful pup waiting to come out. Her adopter trusted us when we said she would warm up to him, and it looks like it is working out great for everyone. Way to go Evie!

This beautiful girl is Hope, now Freya. When she first arrived, she was so fearful she could not be leashed to go for a walk. We had to move her outside in a crate. But with patience and work she began to trust us, and this wonderful family with their Husky came to visit. It was a perfect match, and now Hope has her forever home.
Finley was a last minute arrival to our rescue. She had run out of time at the shelter and had no place to go, so we agreed to take her. She turned out to be very sweet, smart and eager to please. No surprise, she quickly found her forever home.
Chuck's story is pretty amazing. He came to us from a shelter in Bakersfield with severe eye issues. He had an enucleation and entropion correction performed at a specialist here in town. After he was healed we decided it would be best for him to go to a shar-pei specific rescue so he could find a fitting forever home. He made the long journey to North Carolina only to find his forever home with a previous adopter of that rescue in Pennsylvania. His story is a true success story and a tale of cooperation between rescues who provided the best outcome for our sweet Chuck. Happy life sweet boy!
Katie was rescued from the euthanasia list at a SoCal shelter. She was terrified and we were only able to rescue her because we had a kind woman offer to foster her. It took a lot of patience and trust building for Katie to come out of her shell. She still cannot be walked on leash but has made best friends with all the dogs in her foster's home. Katie adores the other dogs and gets along well with the kitties in the home, too. Her foster Alex wasn't able to give her up, especially since she was worried that Katie would have a hard time adjusting to a new home, so she has found the most wonderful forever home we could ever wish for. She has plenty of canine friends that comfort her and will never be abandoned again.
Lilly was rescued from the euthanasia list on her last day. She took some time to trust us but turned into the most loving, goofy, and very special girl we had the pleasure of rescuing. Sky had recently lost her beloved pittie and they fell immediately in love with her. Lilly's best friends is a big ol' lab, Riggin, who looks like the comfiest snuggle bud. We're so, so happy that this once terrified girl has found a forever home any dog deserves. Woohoo!
Mochi. What a journey! Rescued from the shelter with a meat hook lodged in her jaw; fostered for a month only to find out upon arrival she was pregnant! This girl went through it all and did incredible all along. She raised 7 beautiful and healthy puppies who all found wonderful homes, and now she has the most loving family. We loved this girl and her silly antics and are beyond thrilled she gets to enjoy herself and be a puppy once and for all.
Mochi's litter of 7 have found their forever homes. Our first litter born at the rescue was super special. We bottle fed them after 3 weeks as Mochi got mastitis and was no longer able to. These pups were awesome. Super, super smart, sweet, calm but spunky; the perfect mix. All of their families are madly in love with them and we know why. Thank you for choosing adoption; we and the puppies couldn't be happier!
Sterling was rescued from a high kill shelter where he was beyond terrified. Leisha and her husband offered to foster this scared boy and worked hard to gain his trust. Sterling loved their other 2 dogs and slowly came out of his shell. When it came time to find him a forever home they just couldn't give him up and we're happy to report that they foster failed and adopted him. He completes their wonderful pack.
Jet, Stewie, and Arlo came to us as 4-month old puppies. These boys were some of the most beautiful pups we've ever seen. They were truly unique looking with a very sweet and calm temperament.
All of them found wonderful forever homes and we couldn't be happier for them and their families.

Ryder was another incredibly sweet pup that was euthanasia listed due to space. We had a wonderful foster step up until Ryder found his forever home. He enjoys life with his new family and a kitty friend.
Todd arrived together with Ryder and these two boys were absolutely wonderful. Ryder loved other dogs and did well with cats so he found a home quickly. We're happy that this boy is staying local with a wonderful family.
Butters arrived with Toto. He was the most wonderful little pup and super adorable. Not surprisingly he had many willing adopters but found the most perfect family with 2 best friends. Happy life, Butters!
Toto arrived with Butters. Toto was the shy one but she was oh so loving. Her favorite place was in your lap and we found an adopter that wanted just that - a lap dog!
Yay for Toto, what a great match.
Sweet and super obedient Blossom was adopted a second time after her first home didn't work out. She found a more pit bull experienced home with the skills and desire to continue her training. We couldn't be happier for this deserving girl.
When sweet Lilly, now Kirbie, arrived at our rescue, she had one of the saddest faces we had ever seen. One of the best-behaved and sweetest girls ever, she quickly stole our hearts. She soon found a forever home, where she is soaking up the attention and loving being back in a home. To the best life sweet Kirbie!

When Ruger came to Oregon, he went to stay with our trainer. Being a typical shepherd, he needed that structure and consistency to help him be his best. After a few months of working with him and finding his affectionate side, he had become such a part of her pack that she decided to keep him. Way to go Ruger!
When Cleo left the shelter, she went to stay with a wonderful foster for a few weeks before making the trip to Oregon. She hadn't been with us long when the foster asked if we could send sweet Cleo back. She had become part of their family, and her four-legged bestie really missed her too.
To the best life sweet Cleo!

We will end the year with one of our all-time favorite holiday adoption photos! This adorable girl is Tootsie. We never got to meet Tootsie in person. She went from the shelter to a temporary foster, before making the trip to Oregon. While at the foster home she met her future adopters, who quickly fell in love with her. They adopted her, and she became part of the family in time for the holidays. To a wonderful life sweet Tootsie!
