Summer Starbucks Pet Fairs Begin!

Wahoo, today we kicked off the first of a group of summer events, the Starbucks Pet Fair! Emerald City Pet Rescue will be at Starbucks Plaza in Sodo (1st and Lander) twice per month throughout the summer on alternating Thursdays and Fridays. Joining us each time are a different assortment of awesome affiliates, and as long as the weather is good (today’s was beautiful!) there is nothing better than stopping by with your pet, grabbing them a treat, learning about animal rescues in the area, and more!

Today, we brought adoptable dog Merry Frost with us. She got to meet a lot of new people, she enjoyed a puppuchino, and more!

This 10 year old Chihuahua mix girl is looking forward to starting the search for her forever home in the Seattle area. Merry Frost is incredibly soft and gentle, with a graceful, delicate way about her that helps to show off her impeccable manners. She is also a fan of the mellow life, preferring cuddles and quiet time to a lot of unnecessary ruckus and adventure. When she isn’t enjoying a welcome round of butt scratches (one of her favorites) or some delicious treats, Miss Merry is busy charming the vet staff with her lovely personality and sweet, soulful eyes.
Merry can be vocal and should go to a house rather than an apartment or condo, and she would prefer a home with respectful children ages 12 years old and older. Because of this sweet girl’s low energy and mellow disposition, Merry would make a wonderful companion for a first time dog owner, or anyone seeking a snuggly lap dog to call their own! This little lady may be a bit gray in the face but don’t let Miss Merry’s age fool you – on the contrary, she is in great health and has many years ahead to share with a very lucky person (or two, or three)!
Interested in giving Merry a forever home? Give us a call at 206 557 4661!

Bulldogs are Beautiful Day!

Hello everyone – Happy Bulldogs are Beautiful Day!
We LOVE our bullies here at Emerald City Pet Rescue, and we have some amazing bulldogs and bulldog mixes available for adoption right here in Seattle!

Adopt Marco Have you met Marco yet? This 2 year-old Pit Bull mix boy is sweet, cuddly, and “Terrier brained” (i.e. short attention span).

A great walker, this adorable little guy is very protective of his food and treats, so don’t plan on sharing with him until you’ve helped him refine his manners through training which would be a great benefit to him.

Marco would love a home with an adopter who is experienced with his breed, and needs to be the only animal in the home. However, we are sure Marco has more than enough companionship, affection, and love to fill any home to capacity! What a great guy!!

Adopt Lois SUPERHERO and SUPERCUTE, have you met Lois Lane? She is a 3 year old American Bulldog looking for a very special forever home.

This very sweet, smiley, boisterous gal loves to play and throw her weight around, so must go to a household with no small children (as she may knock them right on over in a fit of joy!) or dogs smaller than ~40 lbs. She is a LOVER though, and she gets so excited to see you that her entire body wiggles like crazy!

Lois is looking for an adopter who is willing to continue her manners training and to work on her leash walking skills. Her dream home would be fairly active and up for fun and games (though Lois also loves to cuddle and lounge around!) with experienced adopters of larger breed dogs. Lois wouldn’t mind another well-behaved, large canine sibling to hang out with either. Lois would like a home with no cats, critters or small dogs. Lois is a staff favorite and deserves the best home…is it yours?

BULLDOGS ARE BEAUTIFUL Meet Rennie! This handsome 6 year old Terrier mix came to us with a heartbreaking story, having been dumped in a California shelter where he was so scared that he rapidly lost weight due to stress and fear. Since then, Rennie has come such a long way, in part due to the help from various rescue groups and fosters who would not give up on him! However, Rennie does seem a bit stressed in the rescue environment and he could REALLY use a foster home or a forever family to help him rebuild his confidence and remember how wonderful it is to be loved by humans again – and he will love you tenfold in return!

Agile, playful and affectionate, Rennie is a big fan of walks and edible chew toys. He would make a great companion for someone with an active lifestyle. Though Rennie is not fond of crating or kenneling, he is great with other large dogs his size that can give him clear social cues, as he is still learning the ropes. Because Rennie is extremely curious and active, a fully fenced and completely secure yard is required for his safety.

Are any of these WONDERFUL bulldogs pulling on your heartstrings? Give us a call at 206 557 4661 to find out more about adoption!

DailyECPR : Gidget Still Awaits Her Happily Ever After

Adopt Me1.jpg Little Gidget is becoming a veteran here at ECPR, she has been with us a while! Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE having her around but it does pain us a little bit because although she has so many fans in our staff, we know that what she deserves most is a forever home and a mommy all her own.

Gidget is a bit shy when you first meet her, but that just makes earning her trust all the sweeter because once you have it little Gidget’s unique and boisterous personality comes out to play! She is a skilled acrobat, dancing in circles for a treat and tapping your leg with her paw when she wants “up” into your arms!

adopt-meGidget would do best with children sixteen and up only,  as she is not a huge fan of sudden movements all around her. She does wonderfully with cats, though, and other dogs as well. Gidget is fearful of men so she would truly love to be the apple of her new mama’s eye. With her adorable underbite, often sticking-out tongue and big expressive eyes, who can resist this little pumpkin? As much as we adore her here, we would most love to see how excited she will get when she realizes it’s finally her turn to get a forever home! If you think Gidget might the perfect little Princess for you, give us a call at 206 557 4661 to set up a time to come and meet this little darling.

DailyECPR : Beautiful Bettina

Adopt Me1.jpg Do you love huskies? Do you love boxers? You can have the best of both worlds – a husky / boxer mix! Beautiful Bettina has amazing eyes, a licky tongue, and a very exciting personality! Like a lot of huskies, Bettina is highly intelligent so she is hoping to find an adopter who can really work to keep her stimulated both physically and intellectually. One of our employees loves to call her “smart but naughty!” Bettina is currently being boarded in a wonderful place where she has lots of room to run around – but she does like to rile up the other dogs! (Naughty, naughty!)

adopt-meOnce this gorgeous gal gets a chance to run around and exhaust some of that high energy, Bettina is all about getting loved on! She loves being pet, and a nice brushing is always greeted with a wagging tail as well because she definitely has that husky coat!

Bettina’s main challenge is that she’s not too fond of other dogs but proper and consistent training will go a long way in helping her with her reactivity. Her ideal family would consider her their one and only (she wants to be spoiled!), have a very secure yard, older children only, and the willingness to further her training and help her be the best possible dog she can be! We may be a little bit bias, but we are convinced that her potential is infinite!

If you think your home might be the perfect match for Beautiful Bettina, give us a call at 206 557 4661!



Chewie and Mommas are Besties!



The “Cutest BFFs in the Playroom” award goes to….

ECPR’s Chewey and Mommas! They love to hang out with each other, they think all of these other dogs with their four working legs and lack of wheels are just plain odd. They are in their own little wheelie club together where they joyfully roll around, or, more often, joyfully relax together while they wait to find their forever homes!

cm2Chewey is a handsome 4-year old Chihuahua mix. After receiving surgery for a ruptured disc, Chewey has been using a wheelchair, but he doesn’t let that slow him down for a second as he makes the rounds visiting his favorite people! And c’mon, who doesn’t love a guy with his own set of wheels? He is charismatic, friendly, and very sweet but he does not get along so well with cats.

Meet Mommas! 4-year old Mommas is a fantastic dog that loves people and other dogs. Mommas has lived with children – and loved them, too! Mommas is looking for a loving home that can offer her stability and support as she adjusts to her new life on wheels. As with most dogs that lose their ability to use their back end, this is not slowing her down! Mommas still has a happy-go-lucky attitude and she is always eager for new adventures. Mommas will need an adopter who is willing and able to work with her special needs. Mommas likes cats too!

If you might have the perfect home for one of these two special babies, give us a call at 206 557 4661!

Mischevious Thelma Wants a Home!

thelma1Meet Thelma, a VERY SPECIAL dog who came to us from SOI dogs all the way from Thailand!

Thelma is a ridiculous, goofy, ball of sillyness. She is an explorer and loves to sniff around in the woods. She has a fair amount of energy and she is always smiling. She is an accomplished climber and she is smart enough to open doors of varying styles. She has prey drive towards cats, but also does well with small dogs. She is incredibly playful with other dogs, but sometimes her excitement gets the best of her- she comes on very strong. She has alright leash walking skills and she is a fast learner. The leadership program is really starting to show results with her, she is learning to sit for pets instead of head butting you. She would be a good dog for kids with her happy, playful attitude.

thelma2Thelma is truly wonderful she but does require a very experienced new family due to her high intelligence and her past as a savvy street dog.

If you are in the Seattle area and you think you may have the confidence and willingness to make this wonderful girl a part of your family, give us a call at 206 557 4661

DailyECPR : We Love Lincoln!

Lincoln2.jpgWe are pleased to introduce you to….. Lincoln!

Five-Year-Old Lincoln came all the way from Soi Dogs in Thailand to join the ECPR Family! Cuddly, friendly Lincoln has quickly become a staff favorite. Lincoln is a sweet, well-socialized fella, who makes the funniest noises when he’s trying to communicate with you.

Lincoln is very treat-motivated and learns quickly. He is very good at communicating with other dogs, though he can be impatient with them from time to time so Lincoln would prefer a home with either senior or mellow dogs (or, ideally, the only dog in the home so as to have the spotlight all to himself!) Lincoln is looking for an active family that will take him on daily hikes and adventures where he can show off his amazing walking skills! Lincoln needs a cat-free home, and because he can be vocal, apartments and condos are not for him, either. Because of his past, Lincoln would do best in a home with a fenced yard to prevent him from escaping, he needs to be 100% leashed.

LincolnLincoln would prefer a home with people 12 years old and older. A lot of training will be required for Lincoln, so experienced adopters who can provide him with these opportunities are ideal for him. Are you the right match for this international super-dog? Give us a call at 206 557 4661

Lincoln is fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped.
