Creamer

Creamer
Creamer came to Annie's Orphans along with 4 other poodle mixes who had been raised in and rescued from a hoarding environment. She is one cute girl, full of life and eager to play with any mix of adults, kids and dogs. She is around 7 or 8 pounds, solid white and has a sturdy, doxie build. Creamer is 3 years old.

Georgi

Georgi
Georgi is certainly a cutey! He is petite (5 lbs or under), probably around 2 years old and walks well on a leash. He likes a one-on-one relationship with an individual and gets very bonded to "his" person. He is crate-trained and is coming along quite nicely with his house-training, but will require supervision and a regular schedule.

Bliss

Bliss
Bliss is a darling, knowing exactly how to find a way into your heart! She literally smiles and wags her ears in happy greeting to see you, and she blinks coquettishly when she wants something from you. She is so full of joy, despite a difficult life up to now. She came from a hoarding environment, where it is believed she was caged with other dogs the majority of the time. When she arrived, she had callouses on her feet, was malnourished and was clipped down because of her matted condition. She is currently being fostered and is experiencing all the things of life that she was earlier deprived of...a soft place to sleep, good food, toys and lots of affection. She has absolutely blossomed, with playful energy exuding from her! Bliss likes everyone -- including kids and all sizes of dogs -- and is willing to experiment. She now LOVES many things that frightened her before -- baths, stairs, car-rides, having her face touched -- and has learned to do things that were before foreign, such as walking on a leash, fetching and playing with toys. She is reliably crate-trained and has responded extremely well to house-training, with a strictly enforced schedule of being taken out (instead of a doggie-door). She doesn't yet know how to tell you she needs to go out; so her person has to determine the timing, but she is prompt on voice-command to do her business. She has also mastered "sit" and is getting better and better with "place, down, stay, come." Bliss has mixed energy, engaging full-on in play, but loving long periods of time "bliss"fully lying in a lap watching old "DogTown" episodes! This girl is small, at just over 6 lbs. She will be happiest in a home with at least one other dog, preferably her size. We would also like to see her in a home without small children, since her build is quite delicate.

Eragon

Eragon
This boy is gorgeous, but has had a tough life. He is a little shy and pretty good with other dogs. Needs socializing with people, kids and dogs in order to progress. Interested persons will need to have dog experience to help this boy get over his abusive previous life. Now that he knows and trusts us, he is the most loving guy. And he gives the biggest smile when we baby talk to him.

Nico

Nico
Nico is especially loving. No background information came with him, but he is probably 4 or 5 years old. Little Nico has a heart-condition, for which medication is necessary. He would be a great companion for an older person.

Abigail/Abby

Abigail/Abby
Once she gets to know you, Abigail is a very friendly, 3 year old Doxie. She is good with cats and fine with dogs, although she is more dominant in approach to the latter. She enjoys car-rides and is crate trained/house-trained, as well. She has no known health issues, other than carrying a bit too much weight. She is a food-monger and will "climb" in order to get out-of-reach food, so she will do best with someone whose work/life is centered from home.

Sam

Sam
Sam is a large, ginger-colored, 9 year old, full-bred Chihuahua boy. He and his doggy friend needed placement when their aging companions moved into assisted living, and Annie's was called, since the family hoped to avoid any risk that the beloved pets might be euthanized. While a tad stand-offish initially with strangers, Sam gets very attached to "his person," is quite friendly/sweet and listens well. Since his arrival here, he has slimmed down and his coat has taken on a healthy sheen. While he has lived for years as a housetrained pet, Sam may need a "refresher course" on the subject following adoption. He will be happiest placed in a home with a gentle, small, female dog, since he loves playing the role of "big brother." Sam is microchipped.

Blacky

Blacky
Blacky is a recent arrival who came to us from an out-of-town shelter after his owner had to go into a nursing home. He is a 12 year old, mini-dachshund, weighing in at about 10 lbs. Of course, with the loss of his companion, Blacky's life took a sudden turn; then, more difficulties followed: Blacky was over-anesthetized while being neutered, and his little life was a bit iffy for a while. After stabilizing, an oral infection required attention, and he received much needed dentistry (thanks to the Eagle Animal Protection League!). But, Blacky has come through all of this like the trooper that he is!! He does not seem to experience any ongoing physical complications from these difficulties, other than the fact that he has few remaining teeth and requires a soft or soaked diet. Blacky is good with other dogs and appears to be okay with cats, although he enjoys barking at them. He would be a very good match for a less active individual or a channel-surfer who enjoys good company.

Polly

Polly
This girl is SOOO cute! Polly was found as a stray, living with her sister and another small dog under a dumpster and managing to subsist on scraps from a nearby restaurant. She is crate-trained, and her sister proved to be house-trained upon placement, so there's that possibility for Polly as well; however, since we've never put that to the test, it is not a certainty. She is 2 years old or under and weighs 10 lbs. Because of her life experiences, she came to us very shy, but is getting more comfortable daily. While she warms up sweetly in someone's arms, she is still difficult to catch and is not yet at ease on leash. She is a healthy-looking weight, fully vaccinated and spayed and is patiently waiting for her new life-companion to visit!

Monty

Monty
Monty is one of the most loving little guys I've ever been around. great with other dogs and kids. Actually he thinks everyone is his best friend. He is active and playful and loves to go for walks. He is four years old and needs a loving home so bad. He needs to be watched in the house at first and needs a little more house training.
