BONGO – adopted

Bongo is a 2 1/2 year old Bichon Shihtzu, weighing in at about 25lbs.  He is solid, and a bit on the heavy side.  He is a great dog!!  Very easy.  Listens exceptionally well, walks great on a leash, and likes to just lounge around.  He is crate trained and house broken.  He is fine with cats and other dogs too.


Bongo would like to live the rest of his life without children.  We have tested Bongo with kids, and even though he is very tolerant of them, he really would prefer a home without.  His previous family had children that were absolutely cruel to Bongo, no dog should have to endure what they did to him.  Bongo is also a little leary of some men.  He has never bitten or attempted to bite children or men, he simply just walks away.

We think that Bongo would like another doggie friend to hang out with during the day while his humans are out, but this is not mandatory.  Bongo’s adoption fee is $395, he is neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and flea treated.  $100 of his adoption fee will go to support Ella’s surgery (see previous posts).

If you are interested in giving Bongo a forever home, please email us at for an application.  HOME VISITS ARE REQUIRED.

Stewart – Adopted

Stewart is a 2 year old Shihtzu Bichon Cross.  He is a little higher energy and smaller than Bongo, and more light hearted in his play. When he gets overly excited he nips your hands, but that is all a matter of explaining to him what is OK and what is not.  He walks great on leash, is confident in himself, house broken, crate trained, and has just a tiny bit of separation anxiety.


We were told that Stewart was not good with kids, however we have not had the chance to test him with any.  Because of this, we hope to find a home with older children only.  Stewart is currently in a foster home and his foster dad thinks he’s sweet!  If you are interested in adopting Stewart, please email us for an application at dhanametta@yahoo.caHOME VISITS ARE REQUIRED.

Stewarts adoption fee is $395, he has been neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated.  ($100 of Stewart’s adoption fee will go towards Ella’s surgery fund – see older posts for more info on Ella)

BAT has found his forever home!

UPDATE ON BAT!!!  MAY 18, 2009

It took 3/4 of a year, and Bat has finally found his true love!!  She didn’t even know he existed, she didn’t know about our rescue, they just happened to meet one day and it was instant love for one another.  Ah, love at first sight….how many of us experience that? Bat gets to spend his time with his new mom, who spends most of her time out in her beautiful peaceful garden, with Bat by her side the whole time.

It took a few tries, and a very understanding, wonderful foster mom who cared for him this entire time of waiting…Thank You Gail Fox!!!  I wish I had more foster homes like you!  There were lots of tears when saying goodbye to Bat – I am sure of that!

Minnie Driver – ADOPTED

Minnie is a 3 year old Shihtzu that was surrendered to a shelter in Northern BC.  She was not enjoying shelter life and came here to our rescue.  She is a quiet little girl, shy but warms up quickly.  She would like to sit in your lap all day, but is OK with being left alone in the house.


She is a wonderful little dog, likes to cuddle, a little on the thin side.  She is spayed, vaccinated, dewormed and flea treated.  She needs to go to a home where there is a safe fenced yard, with no small children.  Older children are just fine we think, but to be totally honest we have not tested her with kids yet.

Minnie’s adoption fee is $295.  If you are interested in giving her a forever home, please contact us at for an adoption application.  Home visits are required.

Jolene, Jolene Jolene JOLEENENEEE!! – ADOPTED

Jolene is a sweet, timid little Chihuahua x Schipperke.  She is about 7 months old, and weighs in at 8 lbs.  She takes some time to warm up to people as she seems to have been badly abused in her short lifetime.  But once she does, she will stick right by your side and give you unconditional love and cuddles.


Jolene would like to be in a home without young children, given her past. She needs gentle training and correction. Her foster mom is still working on her housebreaking. She learns fast and loves to run fast in the yard! She wants to own many many chew toys, and have a fancy bed.  Jolene is a BC dog!


Jolene’s adoption fee is $395, spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated and tattooed. Please email us for an adoption application if you are interested in giving her a forever loving home. Home visits are required.

Meg and her Babies -Meg and Babies all ADOPTED

Meg is a Louisiana puppymill rescue.  She was left behind with a few other chihuahuas and such when the owners pulled a midnight moveout.  She was pregnant when she arrived here in Vancouver.  Meg is a Miniature Pinscher and she had 4 beautiful little puppies.  We believe they are MinPin x Chihuahuas.


We are looking for homes for Meg and her puppies.  Not all together of course…LOL.  Meg is around 3 years old, after she finishes lactating and her poor sore breasts get smaller from no longer having to nurse, she will be spayed and tattooed.  There are 3 female puppies and one male.


This puppy has been adopted

Mudd – funny but cute!! – ADOPTED


Mudd is too funny!!  I can’t believe that someone would produce this breed, but it’s kinda cute!  He is a Shiba Inu Boston Terrier Cross.  He is 7 months old weighing in at 13lbs.  He is a high energy puppy who has not had much in the way of manner management until he arrived here.  He needs a family who will be responsible and motivated enough to train him and be consistent throughout his life (as with all dogs).


He is already learning to sit instantly on command,  is a very smart little dude and will learn quickly.  He would prefer to be in a home with older children as he gets way too excited around the little ones.  He needs lots of exercise like all Bostons do, and the discipline that Shibas do.  But he also loves to be hugged and praised….well you know we all need affection in our lives.

Mudd’s adoption fee is $395, he has been neutered, vaccinated, tattooed, dewormed, and flea treated. Please email us for an adoption application at Home visits are required.

And MUDD is also a B.C. DOG!!!!!
