Max is a sweet boy of 7 years.  He is a shihtzu, weighing in at 15lbs. It is sad when a family decides to give up a family member after so many years.  Max is a little confused, as he ended up in a local shelter before coming into our rescue.


He is very quiet so far, and very well behaved.  All he wants is to be coddled, however we have decided to teach him how to be independent. He is fine when left alone during the day, and is getting used to sleeping in a crate, even though he doesn’t need to be, as he is fully housebroken.

He is very mellow, and laid back.  He would probably really enjoy a quiet home where he can relax and lounge around, or he would be fine with another doggie companion too.  He gets along great with other dogs, and with cats.  We are still needing to test him with children though.  So for now, we can’t say if he is OK with them or not.

Max is not impressed

Max is neutered and tattooed.  He is up to date with his vaccines and he has been dewormed and flea treated.
Max’s adoption fee is $195.  An adoption application and home visit is required.  Please email for an adoption application at


Marshall – Adoption Pending

Update on Marshall – July 23, 2009

Marshall has found a foster home and has been doing extremely well there.  He is as soft as I thought he was, cuddly, and affectionate.  Still a little nervous of strangers, but adapting very well to a home with way less dogs than here at the rescue.

He is still however, waiting for his forever human.  One that can be patient, understanding, and experienced with rescue chihuahuas.  He should not be in a home with children, but loves other dogs.


He was picked up on the streets of California as a stray.  Nobody ever came to claim him.  He was put on the red list – and given 3 days to be adopted.  His time was almost up, and was pulled by another rescue just in the nick of time.


He was sent to our rescue here in Vancouver, and is ready for his forever home.  He is very skinny, and sure could stand to gain a few pounds.  He is tiny, about 4lbs right now.  He has been a perfect gentleman with all the other dogs here, and ignores Bob the cat.  However, when someone new comes over, it takes him some time to assess this new person before he decides to accept them.  NO CHILDREN.

He sure is a real sweetie, and he gives me those I love you eyes, like most chihuahuas do.  He really does like to cuddle (once he deems you suitable for him).  He is crate trained, and likes to go there to sleep.  He doesn’t cry or scream once in his crate, but feels very comfortable.  If you are that forever human that Sidekick has been waiting for, please email us at for an adoption application.  Home visits are required.

Fidel aka MarshallMarshall’s  adoption fee is $295, he has been neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and flea treated.

Montgomery (formerly known as T-Bone) – ADOPTED

Yes we know, we keep changing his name, but really T-Bone was an AWFUL name, and then we tried out Jar Jar, still not what we were looking for, but Gail mentioned Montgomery, Monty for short, and you know what…that is the best so far!!  Let’s keep it!

Monty is a beautiful 2 year old purebred dapple Doxie.  He is neutered, vaccinated and has gone through extensive training with The Fox and Her Hounds.


Monty  would make a wonderful companion.  He knows his commands.  He is also completely house broken. He doesn’t like cats, and he can be a dominant weenie with other dogs.  He needs a family that will take leadership and guide Monty with discipline and love.


Monty would prefer a home without small children.  We would like to find a family that will continue to be consistent with his training, but one who also has a ton of love to give him.  His adoption fee $295.  An adoption application and home visit is required.

Angie (Angelina) R.I.P.


Angie went back into surgery today after a very rough last few days.  Canada West did an exploratory to discover that after her original shunt had been closed off, the portal vein was not large enough to sustain normal blood flow.  This caused multiple new shunts to develop, one that was almost as large as the original shunt.  Unfortunately in this situation, there is nothing we could have done to save Angie.

Today we say goodbye to our little trooper, we were glad to have had her in our lives for as little time as we did.   We enjoyed her strength and her cute little quirks.  Rest in Peace Sweet Angie.

We would like to thank all of those generous pet loving people who donated to try to give this little girl a chance to live out her life.  We would like to thank Jocelyn and Olivia for being the best foster parents Angie could have ever had.  I am sending you both lots of love right now.

We want to thank all the folks that were interested in adopting Angie.  We understand that you were all so desperate to adopt her, however we know that many unforseen circumstances can arise, which is why we waited patiently to see what the future would hold before making any promises.
