Posted Breed: Feist / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Rosalee is a beautiful buff colored girl with a medium coat. She’s a quiet girl who is looking for a quiet home with adults who enjoy daily walks and a warm lap to call her own. Rosalee is well mannered, crate and leash trained, and gets along well with other dogs and cats. Because Rosalee is so quiet, she prefers a home without small kids but anyone over the age of 12 is fine. Rosalee walks well on a leash, loves car rides, and prefers to sleep with her mother and person but will go anywhere you ask her. Rosalee will take some time to warm up to her new family, but if you give her time and lots of treats she will become your very best friend. She is looking for a home with her mother Chrissy. Rosalee is looking for a new home due to no fault of her own. Her family is not home enough to give her the time she needs. She is 2 years old and weighs 25#. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Battle Ground, WA
      Posted Breed: Schnauzer / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (medium coat). Friday is a handsome guy with a beautiful ruff around his neck. He’s very loyal and loves being with his people. Friday is house trained but will sometimes do some tinkling when excited to see his owners return. He does have a doggie door and goes out to use it when needed. Owner says he is currently in need of a teeth cleaning but other than that he is in excellent health. Owner says that they just don’t have time for him as their children grow up so they want to find him a home where someone pays attention to him as that’s what he craves, but feel he’d probably do best in a household of adults because little kids increase his anxiety level. If you are interested in meeting him, please complete an adoption application on our website and we’ll connect you to the owner for a meet and greet. He is 7 1/2 years old and weighs 15#. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application.

      Breed: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Battle Ground, WA
      Posted Breed: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (medium coat). Cassie is a beautiful, well cared for senior. She’s up to date on her shots, her dental has recently been done (she has lost a few teeth over the years), she’s house trained and crate trained. You are probably wondering why an owner would even consider giving up this dog, but the truth is, her owner is taking care of an ill family member, works full time, has children and just doesn’t have time to give Cassie the time she needs. She gets along with cats and is okay with other dogs but can be a bit timid with big rowdy dogs. A fenced yard is required because, despite her age, she can get out and run if she wants to. If you would consider giving this girl a place to live out her golden years she will give you lots of love in return. She is 12 years old and weighs 22#. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application.

      Posted Breed: West Highland White Terrier Westie / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (medium coat). Known as a Woodle, this little sweetheart will make you melt when she stares at you with those sad looking eyes but it's all a ploy to get her own way. She loves to play and run, a fenced yard is a must but she does come when called and enjoys the off leash dog park. She doesn't do well with children under 10 as she gets excited by their play and doesn't understand why they won't let her play whatever they are doing. House and crate trained, the owner would like to see her in a home where someone is home more than she is able to be at this point. Lillee is not fond of sharing her food, her toys, or her human, so a confident new owner would be needed unless she is to be an only dog. Both breeds, West Highland Terrier and Poodle lifespan averages are between 15 and 16 years so LILLEE should still have more good years left and she's very healthy. If you are interested in meeting this little cutie please complete an adoption application on our website. Since she is a Senior dog her adoption donation is only $60.00. She is 10 years old and weighs 20#. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application.

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Battle Ground, WA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Toto is looking for a nice quiet home with a warm lap, lots of attention and not a lot of excitement.. Toto was rescued from an elderly woman’s home who was placed in the hospital, then hospice and then passed away. Toto is a wonderfully outgoing, loyal, loving little man. When he is happy he jumps straight up on the air. Always a wagging tail and ready kisses. His nickname is Toto tootsie roll as he readily rolls over for tummy rubs. But he seems to be a one person dog. He has bonded with me but still after 11 months in my home he will not allow my daughter to touch him. So I am thinking that it will take a bit of adjustment time. He is house trained and is good for 4-6 hours at a time if necessary. He was abused by a man and doesn’t do well with men. He had a full dental in November 2015. He has no bad habits and currently lives with 2 older small dogs. He has lived with larger dogs in the past without any problems. But it has been my experience that he really doesn’t like larger dogs than him. What makes him special needs is that both of his knees go in and out and he has a heart murmur which is not uncommon in small dogs. He is 6-8 years old and weighs 6-8 pounds. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application.

      Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Battle Ground, WA
      Posted Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback (short coat). Lulu is a sweet girl who likes to go for walks and to hang with her people. She’s good with kids, cats and most other dogs. She can tend to be bossy with other female dogs but fine with males. Lulu is house and crate trained but her owner hates having to leave her home in her crate for an excess of 10 hours per day and feels he is ready to choose a new home for her where she can enjoy some freedom. Average life-span for this breed is more than 10 years so she’s got some good years left in her. She would even make a good apartment dog if you take the time to exercise her every day. If you are interested in meeting Lulu please fill out an adoption application on our website. She is 6 years old and weighs 90#. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Battle Ground, WA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Jake, a yellow Labrador mix, needs a home with a person that has time to give him love and attention. He was rescued off Craigslist by someone who couldn’t stand the thought of him being taken to a shelter, but he’s not been a good fit because he’s a one-person dog and there is more than one person in the household. Jake likes to lay on the floor next to you or even sit on the couch with you but is not a huggy sort of guy. He is not very tolerant with children and should not be placed in a home with small children or with cats that run from him. He’s okay with cats that are calm and that will stand their ground. His owner said he does have a funny habit of chasing his own tail. He has not had his shots but owner will be getting them for him before he goes to a new home. He is 5 years old and weighs 60#. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application.

      Breed: Chiranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Battle Ground, WA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Meet Chachi, this little guy is sweet and loves to cuddle. Don't let him fool you he LOVES to play! Although chachi is 7 he thinks he's a puppy and loves to go to the dog park. Chachi loves meeting other dogs but will be shy at first and then they are his best friend. He walks well on a leash and is currently living in an apartment. Chachi is house trained and crate trained. He loves to sleep with his boy. He does have some knee issues. Apparently, it's very common in little dogs for this type of knee ligament situation. Glucosamine chews are given daily. Every once in a while he may tuck it up but that's only when he's overdone it physically. By that, I mean like going to the dog park and running around like a maniac for a good solid 30-45 mins. He can handle being walked a few times a day for 20-30+ mins each time and still have energy to play and his knee won't bother him. If you are looking for 13 pounds of cute companionship, of a playful cuddle bug you won't be you will not be disappointed. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Battle Ground, WA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Opal is a very sweet, very timid girl. She was found as a stray so all we know for certain is that she’s had at least one litter of puppies. Opal has been in foster care for a while and is doing well. She likes going to the dog park and playing chase so another active dog in the home would be ideal. She’s very affectionate and takes treats like she can’t believe her good fortune. She does have some allergies we are still trying to identify and will need a good quality food. She is frightened by sudden movements and loud noises so she wouldn’t do well with children, although her reaction is simply to run and hide. She is also afraid of men but may warm up in time. She will bark at cats but has never tried to harm one and she is housebroken. We’ve been working on socialization and new experiences but Opal may never be a confident, outgoing dog. However, she will reward her new protector with love, kisses, and a snuggle buddy at bedtime. We think she is about 4-5 years old and she weighs 55#. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application.
