If you love hiking, cuddling, and tennis balls then Ozzy is your guy! This handsome boy is a 6 year old black lab mix and is 65 lbs. of pure love! He is such a wonderful dog and very energetic! He loves to play fetch with his ball, loves hiking, is great with other dogs, is good with kids and likes to go in the car. We are not sure how he is with cats.
Ozzy’s ideal home would be with an active person who will take him on walks/hikes for exercise and someone who works from home or is not gone a lot as he is happiest when around his people! Ozzy would also love to have a dog sibling around to play with and keep him company. He would not do well as an apartment dog and needs a house with a secure fenced in yard. He loves to cuddle and be by his people, so you must be okay with doggy snuggles!
Ozzy has some separation anxiety but has been crate trained and has been doing much better. He will run if given the chance so extra precautions should be taken. He will need to adjust to a new home but he is very smart!
If you are interested in adopting Ozzy please fill out our MHS K9 Adoption Application.
Charlie + Gidget
Charlie and Gidget are looking for their forever home together! Sadly their owner passed away and there is no family that can care for them.
Charlie is 12 years old, neutered and weighs 11 lbs. He is believed to be a Pembroke/Chihuahua mix. He is the sweetest little cuddle bug. He is a happy, sensitive, lap loving boy. All he wants is your love, affection, to hang out with Gidget and eat doggie treats. He enjoys playing with his soft toys and keeping them gathered in a tidy pile.
Gidget is a 9 ½ year old terrier mix, spayed and weighs in at a tiny 7.5 lbs. Gidget is missing her right front leg due to an accident when she was only a few weeks old. She gets around very well and can climb stairs and slopes just fine, but needs assistance going down some staircases and on steep downhill slopes as it is hard on her back. She will also need assistance to climb up into your lap or sit beside you, which are her happiest spots. She is curious, peppy, lovable and charming. One more thing, when Gidget looks in the mirror she sees a Great Dane!
Charlie and Gidget are cuddle buddies and are inseparable. They are both lap dogs and don’t mind sharing a single lap. They eat together, play together, sleep together and they must stay together as a bonded pair. They are both house trained and will let you know when they need to go out. They are also trained to go on pee pads. They get along well with other small gentle dogs but neither of them has ever met a cat. They both enjoy short walks. Charlie keeps a watchful eye on Gidget and will not go back inside the house without her. They love their doggie beds and fuzzy blankets and lie in them wherever you place them as long as they are together. They will alert you of potential danger with a couple barks but will quiet instantly with a gentle hush. These pups merrily greet you when you come home and will be the perfect companions to someone who needs them as much as they need you.
Just look at this scrumptious face!!
Crunch is looking for a new home. Due to life changes, sadly the owner cannot give Crunch the attention he needs and deserves and has asked us to bring him into our rescue to find him a wonderful home!
Crunch is a 60 lb. 5 year old Bulldog, is vaccinated, neutered, crate trained and house trained. Although he is good with other dogs, he needs a home without other animals because of some anxiety he has. He scares easily and gets nervous of loud noises including other dogs barking. When he gets nervous he will start to bark, he also has been known to attack the vacuum, broom and even trash cans while on a walk. Absolutely no cats.
Not only is he cute, he is also funny when he’s not being lazy! One of Crunch’s favorite things to do is suck on his stuffed animals. He loves to play fetch and also chew on kongs.
Crunch is very strong on a leash and needs an experienced Bulldog owner who understands the breed. He would also do best in a home without young kids. There are some minor medical issues that will be explained upon your approved application. But bottom line, he will melt your heart!!
Look at this beauty! Athena is a 53 lb. Akita mix and is around 1 year old. She has the sweetest personality and is probably the biggest snuggle bug ever! She loves being inside but enjoys being outdoors and would love an active family to take her on walks/hikes as she has a lot of energy!
She is good with other dogs and cats. She does react some to small yappy dogs, but nothing bad. She does have a little separation anxiety, but seems to be able to self soothe herself. She needs a home with a very secure yard and taller fence as she is a little Houdini and will escape.
She is a little hesitant of new people, especially men, but warms up quickly and then loves all of the attention and pets. She seems to love kids too!
She needs an experienced owner who knows the Akita breed.
Athena is very playful and her breed has some traits that could be mistaken as rough. She loves putting her foster parents wrist in her mouth when she is walking. This is very common with her breed and should not be taken as aggressive. Because of this, we feel she needs a home without young children.
Athena will keep you smiling and laughing with her funny personality. If you are interested in adopting her, please fill out our MHS K9 Adoption Application.
We are now accepting applications for Arrow from experienced Border Collie owners only.
Arrow was abandoned along with his brother and parents, when his family moved. One by one people were able to catch and rehome all but Arrow, leaving him on his own which resulted in feral behavior in order for him to survive. MHS Rescue Team trapped him and immediately made sure he received medical care. With the communities help in donations we were able to get him in board & train and thanks to Rosie, the trainer, it has been a success and has brought out Arrows very loving and kind personality!
Arrow is almost 1 year old and fully vetted. He is a sweet and silly guy! He needs an owner who is experienced with Border Collies. Arrow is very playful and loves balls! He is an active dog but also cuddly and will relax with you on the couch. He is great with other dogs and pretty much ignores cats. He would love a home with another dog who shares his happy hyper energy.
Since Arrow was left outside, he is still learning about potty training, but is a very smart boy and will learn with patience and consistency. He needs a very secure yard. He is still young so does have some puppy behaviors like chewing on stuff.
He does bond strong with one person in the home, but loves everyone equally. He has some separation anxiety, but with continued work, it shouldn’t be an issue. He’s still learning on walks that the outside world isn’t big and scary.
His new family will need to be patient and motivated to help guide him. His trainer will also be available to help with transitioning him into his new home.
If you are experienced with his breed, are active and ready for an exercise buddy, please fill out our adoption application.
Everest was saved from a coyote attack by some good samaritans. He suffered a punctured windpipe and a hairline fracture in his clavicle. He came to us emaciated and extremely fearful but has since developed into a loving dog.
We believe that he is a chihuahua/Italian Greyhound mix, as he has long legs and loves to run. He is around 3 years old and weighs 12 lbs. He is also fully vetted.
Everest would do best as an only dog or in a family with other small calm dogs who can help him with his confidence and anxiety; he is understandably fearful of big dogs. He loves running so would like a secure fenced in yard.
He also loves playing with toys, and cuddling with his humans. He has recently learned to walk on a leash, although he can be a little skittish when a vehicle goes by. He is also a little nervous still to go outside after being attacked. He is working on potty training and doing well, but when in a new environment, he needs time to adjust and will have accidents. His new home will need to be patient and work with him. He wants to please.
We do not know how he is with children or cats. Due to his past traumas, he would do best in a home with older kids or no kids at all. He gets anxious when left home alone but isn’t destructive, he mostly whines. Car rides are still scary for him, and he finds crates very stressful.
Everest absolutely loves attention and will follow his favorite person all around the house. He can be a little shy at first when meeting new people but is overall very trusting of humans.
Kacie is a shepherd/cattle dog/husky mix, weighs about 60 lbs. and just turned 1 year old and is fully vetted. She is a good, sweet girl and just loves being around her people but needs to be an ONLY animal.
She loves to play with toys and rip them up, but what puppy doesn’t! She likes going on walks and to hang out with humans. She is also crate trained.
Kacie needs an experienced active owner and someone who can physically handle her breed. She also needs a secure fenced in yard. She is still a puppy so does have puppy chewing behavior. With continued training she will be the best dog! It would be best if Kacie could get all of the attention, so a home without kids is best.
Kacie is in board and train with our trainer Rosie. With her adoption, Rosie will continue to help the new family in training and making sure Kacie continues to grow.
Meet Donkey! This beauty was found running the streets on our mountain. Can you believe that no one claimed her!!
Donkey is a Great Dane/mix approximately 5 years old. She is 95lbs. of pure love!
She is very sweet and has a lot of energy when playing. She is housetrained and great on a leash. She has been doing well with cats and dogs according to her foster and savior.
Lenny was found several times within a week running in the street. We were able to communicate with the owner who wanted to relinquish him to us right away. We found out that Lenny was just recently adopted from the shelter.
He went to the vet for an exam as he has a cough that we were concerned could be kennel cough since he came from the shelter. We did X-rays which showed that Lenny has an enlarged heart. He has been put on medication for a month because the vet wants to see if that will help him. Then he will need more X-rays to compare to.
We won’t know until then what the future holds for this sweet little guy. He may need to be on medication the rest of his life. He also has Giardia which is being treated.
We believe that Lenny is a chihuahua/dachshund/pomeranian mix, we estimate that Lenny is around 6 years old. He weighs 14 lbs. He is very sweet, good with dogs and cute as can be! He was groomed and had to be shaved because of matting and feels so much better to be clean! He looks like a puppy!
He is not able to get neutered until we know more about his heart issue. If you are interested in adopting him, he would be a foster to adopt until he can be neutered. You will also need to be financially able to care for him and his future medical needs.
Little miss Ginger was found as a stray and no owner came forward. She is an absolute doll!
Ginger is a terrier mix, we estimate her to be around 1 ½ years old and she weighs just under 12 lbs. You can tell she wasn’t given a lot of attention, but she has come a long way in a short amount of time. Her foster mom says she is very sweet, has learned to use the doggy door and is almost fully house trained and will use pee pads in the house. She has adjusted well with the other little dogs in the house and has turned into a playful dog. She likes toys and chasing her own tail and has the energy of a puppy.
Ginger at first didn’t feel comfortable with being held or cuddled by a human, but after a couple weeks she jumped in her foster moms lap for cuddles. It will take time for Ginger to adjust to a new home, but once she is comfortable she won’t disappoint. She would do best in a home without children as she could get scared, she is also a runner so needs to be held when the front door is open.
