Special Needs Dogs Are Where It's At!


This is Zack and Bentley. They are brothers who are looking for a new forever home. They can be adopted together or separately, but I'm hoping someone will take them together. I confirmed today that they are still in need of a home and was informed that their foster mom LOVES them. They are senior dogs, which means they're harder to place. They are available through a Pug Rescue group called Pug Pros in Sacramento. Here's their story...

Zack is a 9 1/2 yr old neutered male fawn pug. He was surrendered because his owner could no longer care for he and his brother Bentley. He is house broken, well-behaved, mellow, laid back and just a real dignified gentleman. He is a big handsome boy and likes to be touching you all the time. He loves his treats and is good with other dogs, cats, and children. He really doesn't care much for toys. He doesn't mind his bath as long as it is given to me in the shower with warm water. He doesn't like being wet with the hose. If he sees you turn it on, he will turn tail and head the other way. He likes to ride in the car and go for walks. He love to eat apples! He's a bit of a baby when he has to get shots, but if he's distracted, he does just fine. His health is good, and he is current on his vaccinations. He was raised with his brother, Bentley, but will do fine being adopted out separately. He is anxious to go to his new forever home. Please consider him if you want a wonderful, loving, and committed companion.

Bentley is a 9 1/2 yr. old neutered male fawn pug who was surrendered because his owner could no longer take care of he and his brother Zack. He is micro-chipped, updated on shots, and in very good health. He is house trained. He really likes other dogs, cats and children. He is active and happy all the time. He is called a party boy. When you talk to him, he gets so excited and just wags that curly Q tail with a silly little grin on his face. He likes to play with stuffed toys. He likes treats and meal time . He rides good in the car, but doesn't care much for walking. He will walk, but goes slow and then it's not long before he's ready to head back home. He will sit next to you if you want, but he really loves sleeping in his cuddle bed with his big pillow.

Deaf Puppies

"These are three foster pups (Louisiana Catahoula) of 10 weeks young, who need a home. I had nine of them of which six have found a home thanks to Pound Puppy Rescue. The three that are left still fall under the responsibility of Pound Puppy Rescue. I just take care of them. The problem is that we recently concluded that two of the pups are deaf, and that they will be harder to place.

It's tough raising a healthy pup, a deaf one is a bit more challenging. Though all dogs read sign language better then verbal commands. I really would like the deaf pups to go to a experienced dog handler, or better one that has experience with deaf dogs.

They are most likely purebred Louisiana Catahoula pups and will be about 40 to 50 pounds. I also have the mum of which we think came from a back yard breeder. She is super sweet, but still uncomfortable around other dogs.

They are no problem at my house, it is vital though they get proper one on one training and more so socialization.

Thanks again for taking the time to see what you can do!"

Beautiful, healthy puppies are amazing and wonderful and a lot of fun, but there are so many other special dogs who need a home. Some special needs dogs need a special person to fill the need of "forever home" and I'm just trying to do my best to get the word out in hopes that said special person sees these doggies here and reaches out to fill the void in these beautiful dogs' lives.

Much Love ~KS
