My name: Tulip (female) My age: 1.5 years

Adopt me at: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue

About me: Motley Zoo Animal Rescue was asked to take in Tulip and her brothers when they had been surrendered to the shelter after their mother was hit by a car. Sadly, the puppies were found to have parvo, but thankfully, today Tulip is parvo free!

Tulip is very puppy-like and playful, with a ton of energy! Because of this she would benefit from an active household, where she can go for walks, jogs or hikes with you.

Tulip is crate trained! She sleeps in the crate and eats in her crate. She will run to her crate and sit and wait for her meals. She is fostered with many dogs and enjoys their company. Due to her quarantine as a puppy, she is still learning her social skills around others and relies on and takes cues from her “big” brothers and sisters in her foster family, so she would do well in a home with other dogs. She knows sit and wait and can heel, but her new family will need to continue this education and structure for her, ensuring she will continue to grow into a model citizen!

My name: Max (male boxer mix) My age: 5 years

Adopt me at: KARE (Kitsap Animal Rescue & Education)

About me: I haven’t had the easiest go of it — my mama abandoned me and before foster care, I was living in a crate inside a trailer. Now that I’m in a foster home, my people have uncovered that I need to go to a home without other dogs because I am so selective about my dog friends. I would also really love a fenced yard to zoom around in…I have SO much energy!

However, I am also a sweet and sensitive soul — and while I can be quite goofy at times (I am part boxer after all), I am very in tune to people.

Be sure to check out my profile on Petfinder.com. Woof!

My name: Bunny (female) My age: 2 1/2 years

Adopt me at: Seattle Area Feline Rescue

About Bunny: Aspiring Food Network star, Bunny, is here to steal not only your freshly baked bread (her favorite food), but also your heart! Her foster family reports that Bunny’s favorite activities are sitting at the kitchen table to give helpful feedback on their cooking, and shoving books out of their laps when she wants to snuggle.

She also loves to play tag and fetch, and follow her people around the house.

My name: Hoobert (male) My age: 2 1/2 years

Adopt me at: Benton Franklin Humane (Kennewick, Wash.)

About Hoobert: Hoobert is a dapper gentlepup with long legs and big bunny ears. He is looking for an active family who will play his favorite games with him. Hoobert thinks the ball is life — the only thing he wants more than to play ball all day is to find a family to show him all about being someone’s pet!

Hoobert was found as a stray, and seems to be selective about his doggie friends. As for people, he’s realizing they can be pretty great. He is only 2.5 years old so he’s got lots of energy to keep you entertained and active, but he’s also a big fan of just hanging out and napping in warm spots.

Hoobert is having a really tough time with shelter life so he doesn’t show well in the shelter, but don’t let that stop you from adopting him — he just needs time to settle down and when he does you’ll see how  attentive and smart he is (you can see his wheels turning when solving  problems). Hoobert would love a home that is active and interested in teaching him new tricks, while reinforcing the tricks he already knows. If you’re looking to show a former stray pup the good life #WhynotHoobert?

My name: Kenzie (female) My age: 6 1/2 to 7 years

Adopt me at: Forgotten Dogs Rescue.

About Kenzie: After four years with Forgotten Dogs Rescue (FDR), it is Kenzie’s turn to find her forever home. She is the definition of a “pocket pit bull” weighing in at a little under 40 pounds and from her description on her profile on the FDR Petfinder.com page, she is a favorite of the rescue organization.

Kenzie just loves her people and if she had her way, would cuddle all day long. She gets along very well with the other dogs in her foster home, but has developed some reactivity to other dogs on walks and in public (her foster mom is working with her on this and the work will need to be continued).

Kenzie is a low to medium energy pooch due to her back leg and spine issues (more on that in her profile). She’s not a dog who can go on long walks or hikes, but enjoys short strolls around the neighborhood or running around in the backyard like a goofball for a few minutes, then coming back inside to curl up under her blanket and cuddle with you. She has a particular fondness for garden hoses, and watching her go nuts over the spray is hilarious!

My name: Nana (female) My age: Three years

Adopt me at: Auburn Valley Humane Society

About Nana: Nana is a playful young girl looking for a dog savvy home. She can be shy around new people, so no young children who don’t know how to resist her cuteness quite yet. Nana gets along with some dogs, and would love to meet any potential canine siblings before going home with an adopter. Nana is food motivated, so getting over her shyness is much easier. Just give her some pieces of hot dogs and you will be best buds!

Nana will bring toys to you so you can play tug of war, and when you’re all tired out she might crawl in your lap for a nap! Nana is goofy, playful, and cuddly, she will make an awesome dog for the right people who will be patient with her as she adjusts. She is still young so a consistent and accommodating home will help her thrive into a less anxious pup. Even though she is nervous, she is such a happy dog and her big smile is totally contagious!

My name: Louie (male) My age: three years

Adopt me at: Kitsap Humane Society

About Louie: Louie is an adorable three year old Catahoula mix with a playful and spunky personality. Can’t decide if you prefer blue eyes or brown eyes? Well, with Louie you get both! This cutie is an active dog that would love to romp around in the yard with you or accompany you on runs. Louie loves to play fetch and chase after tennis balls. This goofy boy is also such a smarty pants and already knows some basic commands such as “sit” and “shake.” Louie would love to bond with his adopters over positive reinforcement training and have access to things like food puzzles to stimulate his mind.

While Louie is a sweet and fun boy, he is looking for a pretty specific home. Louie will need a fully enclosed and securely-fenced yard and would do best in a more low traffic neighborhood, as he can get stressed seeing other pets and people while on walks. Louie is looking for an adult only home as he can be wary of strangers at times. He would much prefer to be your only pet since he just wants your attention all to himself.

This adorable boy is a sweetheart and is waiting to find the perfect home and family that will set him up for success. Could that be you? Louie’s meet and greets will be set by appointment only since he has some specific needs in the home.

My name: Troy (male) My age: three years

Adopt me at: Greyhound Pets, Inc.

About Troy: Troy is a delight. He is a happy, playful boy once comfortable, and has come a long way during his time with Greyhound Pets, Inc. (one year to be exact). Troy will need an experienced home; someone who is dog savvy, patient, willing to go at his pace and will continue Troy’s training using positive training methods. He will need a quiet home with a fenced yard and no children and no cats — but he would love a canine companion, preferably a female. Troy is affectionate and a big time leaner, but doesn’t like to be overwhelmed or over handled. As an ex racer, he has some pain in his back legs and spine, and is currently on Gabapentin for pain and Fluoxetine for anxiety.

Greyhound Pets, Inc. has worked with Troy to desensitize him from having his legs and back touched, and will give a free training session along with a special Martingale collar and car ramp to the people who adopt him, so he can continue making more progress with his sensitivities. Troy can run and play like a normal dog, but he should use his ramp to get in and out of the car so he doesn’t re-injure himself.

Basically, Troy is looking for a home that is as gentle and sweet as he is, and people who are patient and knowledgeable as he continues to learn how to be a pet rather than a racer.

My name: Your Highness Gracie (female) My age: nine years

Adopt me at: Seattle Humane Society

About me: Your Highness Gracie, aka the “purr-fect bed cat,” is a nine-year-old torbie who wants nothing more than to cuddle with you through her golden years. She talks with the sweetest purring, chirping voice, mainly to ask for company if separated from her people for too long. Your Highness Gracie is an A+ cuddler – she’s known to flop down in her human’s arms with her head on the pillow. But, she won’t disturb you while you’re sleeping — she’ll just snuggle up next to you. She does prefer flannel sheets though, if you have them, and will sometimes burrow under the covers to “help make the bed.”

Even though Your Highness Gracie is a senior kitty, she makes time to play and have fun. For her, there’s nothing better than a nice, small stuffy toy and a good chase. Sometimes though, she likes to drop her toys in her water bowl. But who doesn’t? She has a few other cute quirks. Your Highness Gracie enjoys drinking running water from a faucet and doesn’t mind hopping up obstacles to reach it. And when she’s eating, she really likes flavoring her water with pieces of food. She’ll scoop some kibble up and toss it in her water. She might take a bit longer to warm up to you, but just like with some people, she’s takes a little longer to gain their trust. But once she does, she’ll give you all the love she can.

Gracie has kidney disease and chronic lymphoma. Kidney disease is fairly common, and many cats develop it into their golden years. There is no way to reverse it, but it can often be slowed with diet or medication. As of right now, Your Highness Gracie is not receiving any treatment for this. She also has Chronic Lymphoma, which is one of the most common cancers in cats. It is fairly responsive to medication and prolonged remissions are common. She is currently taking a very small amount of chemotherapy medication for this every three days and is responding well to it.

Your Highness Gracie would do best in a cat-free home. She could do well with a resident dog who’s cat-savvy and won’t chase her around. Since she’s a senior lady, she would do best in a quiet home with teenagers or older.

Lala

My name: Lala (female) My age: two years

Adopt me at: Seattle Humane Society

About Lala: Lala has been through so much, adopted out three different times with nobody willing to work with her as she tries to overcome her anxiety.

An ideal home for her would be in a quiet neighborhood or with her own yard as she isn’t comfy seeing other dogs yet, and patient/dog savvy parents who will help her as she works through her separation anxiety, and be home with her as much as possible while she is still learning how to be alone.

Lala

Lala is still very young, but she is SO smart and VERY food motivated. She has started her training and is on her way to learning how to be independent, and how to ignore other dogs on walks. In foster care, she is making big progress. She lets her people put her coat on, and won’t guard her toys, treats or food. She is VERY social with her people, and has excellent cuddle skills and playful zoomies. She is sweet and goofy, a perfect balance of snuggly and playful. Lala will even tuck herself in bed if you lift up the covers for her! She is not an early morning girl, and will adjust to your schedule really well. Sometimes she can be weird with big men before she gets to know them, but it’s only happened a couple of times. Her best bud in her foster home is a tall man! She just isn’t sure who to trust sometimes, but with stability and love and patience she will blossom into a perfect pittie!
