Bella is an incredibly old Dachshund Mix who was found abandoned in a shopping center parking lot, turning round and round, lost and confused. She is believed to be at least 16 years old. She is about 20lbs, but very underweight. Bella is a true hospice case - the list of issues she has goes on and on. She is heartworm positive. She has a 6/6 heart murmur. She was full of intestinal parasites. She’s dehydrated. Her spine is fusing with arthritis. Her rib cartilage is mineralizing, and she has odd nodules on her ribs. Her ear flaps are destroyed from fly bites. She’s suffered some sort of head injury, and her pupils are messed up. She wobbles when she walks. She’s either got early stage dementia, or the aftermath of the head injury. She is a HOT MESS. But she eats her food and drinks her water happily every day. She wanders all around the big yard and goes on adventures to follow the barn cats. She sees some, and she hears some. When I walk up to her, she wags and wags and wags her tail. She rests her head on my hand, her bat ears fly back, and she just lays there with me. She is a good girl, and we’re committed to keeping her as comfortable as we can for whatever time she has left. Bella is available for a hospice foster. She would prefer to be an only dog, but she will tolerate other dogs around as long as they leave her alone and stay out of her face. We are committed to paying for her medical needs for the rest of her life. We are not going to treat her heartworm, as she’s too old and sick at this point to survive the treatment. Pain relief and good food and lots of love are the treatment plan for our special girl.

Luke is an 8 y/o Dachshund / Jack Russell Terrier Mix who came to us as an owner surrender. He is a little shy / skittish with people he doesn't know well, but once he gets used to you, he is a major snuggly snuggle buddy who wants to be held and loved on ALL THE TIME. If you want a velcro lap dog, this is your boy!! Luke is also a fantastic alarm dog, as he'll let you know right away if someone has shown up at your door. No one will ever sneak up on you! Luke generally gets along well with other dogs of all sizes and ages, although he can be a little snippy with dogs that insist on invading his personal space. He's had a full senior blood panel done, and he is completely healthy apart from needing a teeth cleaning. We'll get his dental work handled before he goes to his new home. Luke is not on any special medications, and he is still active and ready to go! He is (mostly) house trained, (mostly) crate trained, and (fully) nondestructive.
