Hi! My name is Jasmine.  I am a beautiful 11 yr old yellow lab mix.  I am a full figured girl with a happy, sweet disposition.  I love my foster fur brothers and sisters.  Foster mom says I have fur like silk.  I have some arthritis that makes me limp a little but I take a pill twice a day so I feel better.  It doesn’t cost much- about $30 a month. I have never had an accident in the house.  I love to be with people and I will take all of the loving I can get.  I just want to be your companion and hang out all day.  If you are looking for a sweet senior then I am your girl.  If interested please call my foster.



Hi Everyone!  I’m Willow.  I am a beautiful black girl-lab who has spent too much time fending for myself on the streets, and I’m craving a new, permanent fur-ever home.  I came to my foster with my ribs and backbone showing from my time as a stray.  Needless to say, I value feeding time and love my treats.  I have packed on 5ish pounds and now my ribs are hard to find.  I’m a very happy, loving and smart 6 year-old who is excited to be alive with no known health issues.  My foster parents love the balance between my youthful exuberance for life, which is demonstrated through bouncing, and my ability to sleep in until they wake up on weekends.  I’m housebroken, obey simple commands, wait patiently for my food (while drooling) and walk well on a leash.  I will require ongoing training, but I learn very quickly.  My fosters let me roam in the house when they are gone, but they put tempting things away, since I’ve been known to counter cruise and dumpster dive (into unsecured trash containers).  I will spend time in my crate, but I can think of lots of better places to be.  I do well as an only dog.  If you want a devoted, gorgeous dog who wants to please and be with family all the time, I’m your gal.  PS - I just had a bath (and I co-operated), and I’m feeling spunky.  I’m tossing my toys in the air and bouncing around the house… give my foster a call and come meet me!



Hi there! My name is Leyla which means dark beauty and that is just what I am! I'm a 10-year-old, 88 lb beautiful black female. Ok, so maybe I'm a senior black beauty with a few white hairs, but I have all the wisdom and elegance of a mature gal with a little spunk. I love to go for strolls in the neighborhood. I don't pay any attention to people or dogs out and about. I just love getting outside in the beautiful Arizona weather and stretching my legs. I've got to admit, I've got a pretty good pep in my step! I enjoy playing with my soft toys and carrying them around, especially my football. Yeah, I'm a football kid! With my great life of wisdom and elegance, I have developed diabetes, so I have a regular routine of insulin shots twice a day after my meals, along with my treats of Proin to help my little bit of incontinence. I promise I'm housebroken but I do need to go out 3-4 times during the day so having a family member home a lot is best for me. I go right to the door at my foster parent's home and they let me out when I need to go. I don't have any experience with that doggie door thing I've heard about. My shots are no big deal. I take them like a pro and will show you how to do it. I love my wicker crate! It's my sanctuary and I sleep in there at night with the door open, all night without having to outside. I like going in there during the day too just to chill out. I have cataracts which makes seeing a bit of a challenge sometimes, but frankly I do well! I fell in my foster parent's unfenced pool the first day as I was sniffing around checking out the property! Wow, that water was cold! I swam right to some steps and got out. My foster mom was right there coaxing me in. I knew she would have jumped in to save me but I'm a swimmer, so I was fine. Anyway, I could tell she was a wimp and didn't want to get in the cold water! I've not been in again since then, thank you very much, I'll wait until it's warmer. I've been known to freak out a little with lightening, thunder and firecrackers, so please help me avoid or ignore those things. I have a good relationship with dogs of all sizes and I ignore those cats. Kids are ok too. I've got some good life left, so if you are looking for an amazing senior girl to hang out with and take strolls around the neighborhood, you've met your match. Call my foster mom, ask for Leyla and we'll set up a time to meet up and sniff each other out.
