Scout - The Philosopher

January 16, 2015
Scout, or Scoutie as I like to call him is so darn cute!  

This dog does not realize that he is a dog, he will sit and look at you when talking to him like he really is soaking up all your wisdom.   Most times I catch Scout looking at the horizon thinking about stuff.   Obviously not dog stuff!  LOL   Probably wondering why he has to hang around all the dogs so much.

His fur is so soft, very silky like!!!  Some dogs hair is rough, but not Scout, soft like a Maltese!  Maybe he has some Maltese in him,  

I have to admit, I love little Scout back end and tail.   He has a little nub of a tail and those cute little terrier legs just make me smile.

Now that is a cute doggie Butt!!!!

Scout is not your average dog, like I said, he thinks he is human.  So he needs a special wonderful adopter.

Scout would be perfect in a one dog home, with a human that wants to make him their buddy!  Scout will hang out with you and sit next to you and let you tell him all your secrets and ambitions.   He thinks it would be cool to go on a vacation or small trip together.   BUT don't go anywhere with some Bananas!  Scout is CRAZY about bananas!!!!  Just try to eat one without sharing!     He also loves apples and carrots!

Check out this video of him begging for bananas!!!!  

If you want to meet Scout, please fill out an application at our website


Diana - 7 Pounds of Sweetness

November 17, 2014
Today's Dog is the sweet adorable Diana!!!   

Diana was a rescue from a hoarding situation.  When we got her, she was matted, thin and very timid.  As her health grew so did her sweetness.  Oh so sweet!!!!   

A little mix of Maltese and Shih Tzu, she encompasses those qualities beautifully.  She would be happy to sit in your lap all day and be your gal!!!!  

Here she is kicking back on a volunteers lap!!!

Here she is being kissed by a nice potential adopter!  She loves to be kissed and held.  Do you blame her???

Diana is waiting for you to fill out an application and come see her!!!!  Click on the tab at the top of this site where it say adoption application and fill out the form.   You won't be sorry!!!!!

Dorothy, a fabulous Cairn Terrier

November 11, 2014
When you think of a cairn terrier, most people think of Toto from Wizard of Oz.  Smart, loyal, and affectionate are words that are used to describe Dorothy!!!   

I had the advantage of spending the day with Dorothy while showing another dog to a potential adopter.  The potential adopter knew immediately that she was Dorothy!!!  (Guess you have a fan base Dorothy)  As we waited for the potential adopter to show up I got to see how Dorothy interacted with the other dogs.  

Dorothy started out the meet and greet with a good sniff of the potential adopters dog.  Smells like a Good Dog!!!!!

Just a little tummy rub and a kiss to another dog!!!!

Dorothy was soooo patient.  She waited for over an hour and was not fussy at all.  She sat by us, watched us with alertness but was very calm!!!

She has such dreamy eyes!!!  What a sweetie!!!!  She is day dreaming about a new life with her own home which includes a bed and bowl!!!

Dorothy has the most shiny hair.   You can see the shiny strands of red, brown and silver!!!  Such a beautiful dog!!!

Dorothy has such a cute tail!!!  I just had to add it to the pictures here!!!!!

She is such a happy dog!!!  Look at that face!!!!!

No dog shot is complete without a tongue action picture!!!   LOL!!!   

Think about adopting Dorothy!  She would be a great addition to the family!!!

Introducing Wendy!!!!

November 1, 2014
We have rescued a new dog which we have named Wendy!!!  Wendy is a Schnauzer / Shih Tzu mix.  Oh so cute!!!!  She is a sweet little dog with a cute little attitude.   She is looking for her forever home!!!

This is such an interesting combination of traits

Lively and active, the Miniature Schnauzer (a terrier breed) has a larger than life personality and loves to participate in everything you do. He’ll follow you around the house, alert you to someone at the door – possibly more heartily than you might desire.


The compact Shih Tzu is the ideal canine companion. Originally bred for royalty in China, this little guy still considers himself a prince among dogs. A true sweetheart, his purpose in life is to love and be loved. Playful and mischievous, he will steal your shoes.

Based on this combination of breeds, you got a cute family member, who is involved in everything you do and is loving and playful.  Who could ask for anything more!!!!!

To adopt Wendy, please complete an application on our website!!!!

Lancaster Hoarder Rescue Update: 15 large breed dogs left!

November 24, 2010
All these dogs came from the Lancaster hoarder that had over 100 free-roaming UNALTERED dogs on their property surviving only on bread donations from a local bakery. They were living in squalor and without shelter. We've been able to get nearly 70 dogs off the property and 15 cats/kittens. Here are a few big dogs in boarding that we need to get out ASAP so we can go get the rest of the 7 dogs in Lancaster.
All dogs are:
1-2 years old
Great with dogs

Temps are FREEZING at night in Lancaster. We NEED to get the rest of the dogs out of there but we can only do so if we can get these dogs out of boarding. Our group took over 20 dogs so we are so full!!

MOOSE VIDEO (Sweet gentle giant Chow):

RAVEN VIDEO (Submissive, belly-up black retriever-shepherd mix ):

BODHI VIDEO (Golden lab mix):

ONYX (Black/white Lab retriever mix)

SKIPPY (Skinny black shepherd) can get along fine but his back legs are wonky. We are taking him to a vet to see if its hereditary/inbreeding or injury. He doesn't seem to be in pain.

If you are a rescue that can help take on one of these babies please contact me at

*We are good on food donations thanks to Jane and blankets thanks to Operation Blankets of Love.
