Matchmaking anyone?

One of the things that is nice about a foster home based group is that we can help you find a dog, or cat, that will fit into your life with known needs, quirks and expectations. You'll get a personality with few surprises and behaviors that you will know how to deal with. We can tell you about favorite spots to be patted and itched, favorite toys, signals to go outside and many more details.

Russ is one of those guys - he's been in one foster home for awhile and has moved to another one to broaden his experiences with other dogs, people and a cat!


Russ has been seen sleeping in a dog bed with that cat! No pictures of this, unfortunately!

Russ also has new doggie 'foster brothers' and both of them are larger than Russ. He thought they might hurt him at first but has now decided they are good buds to have around.

Russ is an expert at keeping himself amused - he loves his toys. He'll find one or more and spend lots of time chewing one, tossing it in the air only to run after it and catch it again to play this game over and over. It's quite an amusing game to watch and one you'll enjoy.

By far Russ' favorite occupation (other than naps) is to be outside in the fenced yard. He doesn't seem to mind if it is cold or warm. He happily scampers around, checking out the smells, discovers what squirrels might have visited, lies in the grass and stretches out or runs around to get some exercise.

Life is good -

a foster family to love you

a dog or cat buddy who will sleep with you

toys - toys to snuggle up with but most often to play with

a cat! Who would have thought a cat could be so nice?

Now, Russ just hopes we can find the right forever home for him. One with a person or family to love him. A fenced yard to he can go out and explore. Toys. Perhaps a canine or feline friend.

Russ says he'll even let you give him a bath - if you insist - if he comes in a little grubby from playing in the yard! He hopes he'll get a treat or two after the process - for being such a trooper.
