Chewie and Mommas are Besties!

 

CM1.jpg

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!

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.

DailyECPR : Iggie is ig-tastic!

Iggie.jpg

Meet Mr. Iggie, the ig-tastic chi-pom!!!

This 11-year-old Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix has made the trek from California in search for his forever digs in the Seattle area. Iggie weighs about 4 pounds; yes, 4 pounds! He is an adorable little man with an easy-going demeanor and a sweet personality. He adores people and enjoys happily trotting around for his afternoon walk. When he’s not sleeping (which is most of the time), this cuddle bug is happily lazing on the lap of anyone who wants some Iggie love! Due to his tiny size and medical considerations (including cataracts), Iggie would do best in a home with no boisterous young children or energetic dogs who may not respect his space.

Iggie is currently in a foster home being a lap-tastic little mini. He is fully vetted, neutered and microchipped.

If you live in the Seattle area and would like to meet this cutie-pie, please give us a call at 206 557 4661

A Visit From Meridian School

 

image1 Here at Emerald City Pet Rescue, we love it when children reach out to us and want to help and/or learn all about animal rescue! We firmly believe that having compassion for animals at a young age and learning about the responsibilities involved with caring for them gives them helps them grow into wonderful pet owners.

Today we had a visit from some students at the Meridian School in Wallingford. These wonderful kids got to learn about what we do as a rescue; save animals, help them medically, socialize and train them with positive reinforcement, and help them find loving, forever homes. They also had the opportunity to demonstrate their awesome animal-handling skills with Lily, Scout, and Athena. We love that Meridian is compassionate to animals and that they gave their students the opportunity to interact and learn about them and what it takes to care properly for a pet as part of their curriculum. We always welcome opportunities to educate, as we firmly believe that the best way to save an animal from losing a home is to make sure that pet parents have the knowledge and resources they need to cope with any challenges having a pet can bring.

Captain Has Sailed Away!

Captian Captain was just a puppy, but already he was larger than most of the dogs here in our ECPR playroom! The staff and volunteers quickly fell in love with his flopsy way of running around, not quite clear on the fact that his body was as big as it was and not quite skilled at balance yet. He was a lover though, and the moment you gave him an ounce of attention he demanded a pound! He would bounce around with endless exuberance and soak your face in kisses.

No wonder Captain wasn’t here for very long, but he was definitely here long enough to charm our hearts as well as the hearts of his new forever family! Captain sailed into his new home with ease and posed expertly for his photos as if to say, “Obviously I found a fantastic forever home, I’m SO handsome!” Well, he’s not wrong!

We tip our hats to you, Captain, and we wish you nothing but the best as you venture into the open sea of your brand new forever-loved life! Bon voyage!

Blade The Doxie Wants To Be Loved!

Blade sml_3Meet the droopy-sweet face of Blade! This guy is a 6-year-old dachshund looking for just the right home. He is fond of hanging out with his human, providing that human is female and an adult. (Blade is not a fan of children or cats, and is fearful of men.) Dachshunds can be pretty vocal and Blade is no exception. Because of his big doxie personality and voice, he will not be a good candidate for apartment or condo living.

BladeHOMEKIT photoBlade is a HUGE fan of ball time though, and he thoroughly enjoys fetch! He is filled with loyalty and protectiveness over his loved one and he wants you to know how much he wants to be loved in return! Are you the right person for this adorable dapple?

Blade is fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped. Give us a call here at Emerald City Pet Rescue at 206-557-4661 to meet him and see if you might be his perfect match!
