Adopting a dog is a serious decision. If you’re interested in any of our available dogs, please email us for an adoption application. All of our dogs receive medical care prior to adoption, including a senior wellness exam, blood work, vaccinations, microchip and any other necessary procedures needed to improve their quality of life. We also encourage our adopters to take a proactive approach with their new senior dog’s diet and health. Our adoption process includes the following once an application is APPROVED (if your application is not approved, you will not hear from us):
- Meet & Greet (with family and all pets)
- Home Check (includes all areas accessible to dogs)
- Sign an Adoption Contract
- Pay Adoption Fee of $75.00/dog
LADY BUG & BOO BOO are mother & son. They are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. Both are very sweet lap dogs and both love to eat. Lady Bug is overweight and is still working on losing weight. She has a fatty growth on her belly that may need to be removed in the future if it gets bigger, but it is harmless. Boo Boo greatly depends on Lady Bug for security and is also her partner in crime when it comes to stealing food. Their adopter will need to be as crafty as they are when it comes time to feeding time, making sure they are fed separately and making sure human food isn’t accessible to them. Green Heart Rescue was able to get dentals done for both Lady Bug and Boo Boo in October 2018. Lady Bug is 10 years old and Boo Boo is 7 years old. Lady Bug does have early signs of arthritis. While they do well in a home with other dogs, we prefer that they are adopted in a home without other dogs so that they get plenty of one-on-one attention. We also prefer they be adopted in a home without young children. We may consider children 13 years or older. Although they are super sweet and have not shown any sign of being nippers, they do tend to be on the nervous side. They need a lot of reassurance to be sure they are safe and sound. They are cat friendly, but would need to live in a home with a dog friendly cat. If you’re interested in adopting Boo Boo & Lady Bug, please email us for an adoption application. Their adoption fee is $150.00.
Background: Lady Bug and Boo Boo are from Barstow, California. They were surrendered by their owner, reason unknown. Green Heart Rescue pulled them from an overcrowded shelter in August 2018.
WRINKLES is approximately 8 years old and is a Shar Pei mix. Wrinkles is a loving girl that loves to cuddle with people. Wrinkles recently completed 6 weeks of training with Alliance Dog Training to help with basic commands as well as help with her reactive behavior towards other dogs. She did amazingly well and didn’t show any sign of reactivity during her final session. Both Green Heart Rescue and Alliance Dog Training will help integrate Wrinkles into her new home if there are other dogs in the home. If you’re interested in adopting Wrinkles, please email us for an adoption application. Many thanks to Boise Pet Photography for the photo session with Wrinkles. You can find more photos of Wrinkles on our FB page.
Background: We pulled Wrinkles from an overcrowded shelter in Tulare, California in October 2018. When Wrinkles joined our rescue, she was emaciated. It was obvious she had been neglected for most of her life, if not all of her life. She wasn’t fixed, most likely bred many times. (Thanks to Stella’s Shelter Fund, we were able to get Wrinkles fixed.)
Toby is an 11 year old Jack Russell Terrier/Beagle mix. He’s around 30 lbs. Don’t let his age fool you! He’s still got a lot of bounce in him and is a really fun boy! This polite boy does well on car rides and does well with basic commands. He gets along great with dogs of all sizes and hasn’t shown any interest in cats. His previous owner said that Toby lived with small animals without any conflict. He also used to live with kids and was a loving companion to them. Toby is food motivated and will go out of his way to find food, including counter surfing. Toby has had a dental and had several lipomas removed in February 2019. He does have some arthritis in his back legs, but it can be managed with the right supplements and a high quality diet. If you’re looking for an energetic and loyal friend, Toby may be your boy! To receive an adoption application, please email us.
Background: Toby was surrendered to our rescue in December 2018.
Charlie is most likely a chihuahua/pug mix and is around 14 years old. He’s a super sweet boy, easy going and loves to be around people. If you’re looking for a lap dog, Charlie is your boy! Another plus…he loves kids and does well with cats. Overall, Charlie is in decent health. He had blood work done shortly after he joined our rescue, which was in February 2019. Blood work showed that his liver enzyme levels were a bit too high, so we are currently giving him milk thistle to lower his liver enzyme levels. He is in need of a dental but won’t be able to get one until we can lower his enzyme levels. We are currently accepting applications for Charlie, but he won’t be available for adoption until after we have taken care of all of his current medical medical needs (dental and lower liver enzymes). To receive an adoption application for Charlie, please email us.
Background: We pulled Charlie from West Valley Humane Society in February 2019.
Lola is Queensland Heeler mix and is between 8-10 years old. She is a gentle girl with a very calm and angelic demeanor. Her ideal day includes spending time with her people and being fed delicious meals. Lola is on the heavy side, which is causing some issues with her hips and leg joints. We are working on helping her lose weight. When Lola joined our rescue, she was filthy, obviously neglected health wise with awful teeth and an oozing growth called a hemangioma (benign). Lola had a dental in April 2019 and had the hemangioma removed as well. Surgery went well and once her stitches are out, she will be ready for her new home. If you’re looking for a quiet girl to keep you company, Lola is your girl. She just wants to be loved and will return it to you without hesistation. To receive an adoption application for Lola, please email us.
Background: We pulled Lola from an overcrowded shelter in Utah in March 2019. She was found as a stray without any identification. She was never claimed, so we pulled her when we learned that she was close to being euthanized due to lack of space.
Pucca is a 10 year old female boxer. She is around 60 lbs, but is on the thin side (working on helping her gain some weight). She is a shy and timid girl that takes time to warm up to new people. Once she knows you, however, she will love you forever. Pucca lives in a foster home with another dog her size and two other small dogs. We aren’t sure how she would do in a home with cats. She lived with kids in her previous home, but we would prefer to see her find a home without kids, preferably with people that either work from home or are retired. If you’re looking to add a sweetheart into your family, you might want to consider meeting Pucca. She will melt your heart! To receive an adoption application for Pucca, please email us
Background: Pucca was surrendered to our rescue in April 2019. She has had skin cancer in the past with her previous owner. As of now, there is no sign of it returning, but we are proactive with her diet. She does have skin allergies that have been a work in progress since she joined our rescue.
