I like training. it's fun to learn new things and use my brain and whatnot. but i also like lazy sundays with friends.
maria and i spent some time hanging out in the yard this morning. there were all kinds of activities in the park, and it was fun to just people watch for a bit. we played with toys and cuddled, too. what a perfect morning. -kip
It’s been a rough few days for our ruby.
she was taken into @westvet_idaho for an emergency appointment sunday night. during the walking shift that evening, one of our volunteers noted that ruby started to have (what we now know are) "fly biting seizures." these are a type of localized, partial seizure, and we don't know what's causing them.
this video was taken late sunday night at westvet before ruby was seen by their incredible staff. she had intermittent seizures while we were there, but they happened frequently after we left.
the seizures lasted throughout the night (she was closely monitored the entire time), so ruby was examined again and started on anticonvulsant meds monday morning. most of her blood work came back normal, and the rest of her neurological exam was unremarkable. however, we are going to follow up with more testing because she had some abnormal thyroid levels.
Update: sasha has been returned to mcr. we’ve learned that she needs a home without cats (and probably without any small animals) and that she can be reactive to other animals in general. we’ve also learned that sasha is good with kids, house-trained, and crate-trained. sasha is staying in a foster home now, so call us at 208-794-0944 if you’d like to meet her.
hello idaho! nice to be here. i packed my bags and moved from california here (i heard it was the thing to do) and am excited about what the future holds for me. i’m a sweet, sweet girl who didn’t have the best past.
i was used as a breeder mom, so have had a few puppies in my day. i’m all ‘fixed’ now, so no more puppies for me. it’s my turn to find a family! because of my past, i’m kinda nervous around new people. i find them a bit scary. the nice folks here are helping me to feel more comfortable, but sudden movements and loud noises scare me. i’m very good at ‘checking in’ on my walks, am curious and well mannered. i just know that the right family that knows to move slowly, be gentle and show me all the good the world has to offer will bring out my inner love muffin.
i think i would be okay with older, dog savvy kids. i just really really want to make you happy. it will just take me a little time to know that you’ll be good to me.
Blake is 2 1/2 months old and a very small dog who dreams of a warm lap, food three times a day plus bedtime snack, loving atmosphere and toys. in return, blake will provide lots of entertainment and tickle kisses and will be willing to learn your rules (she is very astute and smart). plus she’s very cute.
blake is staying in a foster home with barbara, who sent the following info: “this little one is very affectionate and has lots of energy. she alternates from almost frantic energy to sleeping on your lap. she is getting new teeth so needs lots of chew toys. she minds well and wants to please. sleeps through the night in her crate after a snack. if she does have to urinate she will let you know by whinning. she wants to be in sight of her person all the time. will cry if left alone so does require some gentle additional training. treats seem to be a good resource for additional leash training and teaching. she is fully vetted, spayed, has microchip and has her puppy shots up to date. wants to play with my 16 yr old cat but minds when i tell her no. respectful of other dogs in the home. a very loving smart puppy who will be a constant source of loving company for some lucky owner.” call us at 208-794-0944 if you’d like to set up a time to meet blake.

words that come to mind when thinking about jolie: shy, sweet, affectionate, energetic, nervous, playful, puppyish, charming.❤ we don’t know much about this 1 year old girl’s history. apparently, she was dumped by her owners and then picked up as a stray in california. one of our rescue partners transferred her to us recently, and we’re still building our friendship here. jolie gets a little nervous about walking across slippery floors (who doesn’t!) and meeting new people. but she’s getting more and more comfortable here each day.
this gal is a total charmer once you earn her trust. get her to play, and she transforms into a joyous puppy. she’s bouncy and energetic (plus a little mouthy and jumpy, if we’re honest), and she wants you to join in the fun.
when jolie sees other dogs, she lights up. animated and curious, we think this girl would like to make a best dog friend soon. she played with a male dog about her size in california, and from the video we saw, she had good manners around him. she met duke, a small dog, here and was curious and polite. and then…
