ADOPT A SENIOR - Odie

ADOPT A SENIOR - Odie
Odie is just the coolest boy -- mellow and affectionate. He is another one of our dogs who has been here far too long! In his young, rebellious years, he "ran with the gang," but that was then, this is now. He is an older guy -- 12 years old -- and weighs about 55 lbs. He must have a fenced yard and has to be kept on a leash when walked outside of his yard. As an older fellow, he now has arthritis (and is on Rimadyl), but it doesn't affect his sunny outlook. The only thing that ruffles Odie's feathers is the sound of thunder, although he is also not good with cats. He enjoys people and would love a permanent placement for the remainder of his days.

Adopt a senior - Swayze

Adopt a senior - Swayze
Swayze has a "complex personality" -- He gets very attached to "his" people, LOVES playing with kids and is fun to watch as he entertains himself with his jolly ball and tries to get the attention of visitors with his squeaky toys. He's also good with other dogs. Meanwhile, when bonded with core people, he can become protective of his family and their space and can act suspicious and guarded where strangers are concerned. He would only be a candidate for adoption to the right person: someone who is very dog-savvy and would offer consistent and appropriate training and guidance around Swayze's guarding behaviors.  The ideal setting would be a low-bustle, predictable living situation, with few comings and goings of non-core people.  Swayze is around 9 years old. UPDATE: Swayze was recently diagnosed with Pemphigus Erythematosus.

Wolfie

Wolfie
Wolfie was born at Annie's Orphans, to a pregnant mother who was accepted from an out-of-state shelter prior to being euthanized. He was adopted out as a baby along with his sister Bailey. He is 6 years old and was returned within the first year of his life for pack aggression toward another household pet. Additionally, Wolfie develops a strong bond with a person and has shown protective/guarding behaviors when other people approach the primary individual. Adoption is a possibility to only the right individual who has knowledge of the breed and of handling challenging behaviors in dogs.  The necessary living arrangement would include a quiet setting with a solo person.

Zoe

Zoe
Zoe is around 6 years old. When she arrived here, she was in her final days of pregnancy and had been traveling, as a stray, on a busy Utah highway. She loves people (sometimes, with a bit more enthusiasm than is necessary, but she does settle down with appropriate direction). Zoe will need a home with a secure yard, and an active lifestyle would be good for her. She would like a companion who can be with her a lot --someone who works from home or is retired. Another doggy companion would also be ideal.

Luke

Luke
Luke is a 2 year old BC mix. He is dog-friendly, and applied behavioral training and gentle handling have helped him diminish his wariness of men. While a bit on the submissive side, this, too, is responding well to training. Luke has a hip-socket issue, and assessment of his x-rays concluded, per his vet, that surgery is not necessary right now and likely will not be for years, but as he advances in age, intervention may be necessary. Interested parties should know that Luke is not the choice for a running partner or super-athlete.

Toto

Toto
This senior Chiweenie will need a special home. He is overweight and needs gentle exercise on a regular basis. Toto is good with other dogs and loves lap-time. He would like a female caregiver, as he is not very good with men. A home without small children is also needed. He is between 11 and 12 years old.

Courtesy Posting - Penny

Courtesy Posting - Penny
As a courtesy posting, Penny is not on-site at Annie's Orphans. She is described per information provided to us by the owner: Penny is a spayed, female Great Pyrenees/ Anatolian Shepherd. Her birthdate is 11/2/2006; so she is a senior, but in very healthy condition -- especially for a large breed dog. She has lived with a herd of alpacas and kept the area clear of predators. When I adopted another Anatolian mix to help Penny, everything went well until that new female began to be aggressive toward Penny. Apparently she was becoming the alpha and would no longer put up with Penny as her teacher. Now, Penny is in danger. She has been attacked twice by the new female and treated at the vet's office for bite wounds. She has recovered and is in good condition. Everyone who has ever been in contact with Penny remarks on her sweet disposition. She is kind as well as beautiful. She will go beyond my property boundaries to avoid the new dog, so I have to keep her confined to protect her. Unfortunately my property is enclosed with field fence which does not keep dogs inside. Penny needs a loving home where she has fenced perimeters. She can be indoors without any accidents. She is most comfortable outdoors, but her hair is just growing back from the shave to treat wounds. Penny takes thyroid medication twice a day in a tiny pill that goes into a bit of wet food on top of Victor dry food. Contact: JoAnn at 970-563-0231.

Pounder

Pounder
This little man will need a special home, with someone who understands and has the patience for old dogs. He is a 15 year old schnoodle, with a very sweet disposition, but some mental weaknesses due to old age. His vision and hearing are also failing at this point. He was originally brought in to Annie's Orphans after his owner was stricken with Alzheimer's.

Seager

Seager
Seager came to us as a stray from Towaoc. He has been a part of our sanctuary and is, now, considered adoptable. He is, however, a shy guy and panics easily, leading him to be a flight-risk in certain circumstances; therefore, he will need handling in keeping with that -- meaning, a secure yard and excursions only on harness/leash. Seager is around 7 years old.

Murdock

Murdock
Murdock is such a happy boy -- which says much about him, for his life has not been an easy one. He and his brother were picked up as stray puppies, both having experienced physical trauma, deduced to have come from abuse. The outcome of that, for Murdock, is what appears to be trauma-related brain-damage, with resulting developmental delays and visual "miswiring." Murdock is now one year old and, as the months pass, he is showing clear signs of improvement; but he has special needs and will require a home that can both accommodate his differences and support his potential. In return, this fellow will delight you daily with his unwavering optimism, innocence and absolute lovability. (See more about Murdock on Annie's Orphans home-page.)
