Meet Rufus, estimated 10 mo. old and 50 pounds of sweet chocolate lovin’ Vizsla/Hound mix we are guessing! He loves kids but needs to work on not jumping upon them. He gets along with other dogs. He does bark at kitties but he has not been around them to know if he will do more than bark so we are saying NO kitties… He’s neutered and has had his shots. He might have a wee bit of hound in him as he does like to “talk” bay… at times and surprise you that that interesting voice came out of this boy. He gets excited when you come home but other than that is pretty laid back BUT ready to go when you are. He would love a long hike, learn how to run with you, he is an active guy now that he is settled. He does require a securely 6′ fenced yard.
Meet our incredible, amazing, beat the odds, Stella! This girl had so many issues that most rescues shelters would have given up, NOT EAPL and NOT her foster home! You ask what? She was so scared upon arrival. Then we discovered that most of her insides were in one cavity and had to be taken out and put into the correct positions, and then she had to go through heartworm treatments and this girl kept going! And now almost 8 months later, she is 100% cleared and ready for adoption. Inside this beautiful girl was the most loving gentle soul. She is a great dog, beautiful with a gentle yet playful disposition. Well behaved, good with other dogs, knows to ask to go outside, does ok with a crate, not the best car dog. Does well on a leash but may need some correction with other animals along the way. Would do best with a dog and children to play with.
While we don’t know much about his life before joining the EAPL family, his weak hips and calloused elbows tell us he had it pretty rough for a while. But in typical canine fashion, he craves human attention and affection. Building up a solid foundation of trust is key for this guy. Julius’ perfect home will be a patience and quiet one with no or one other mellow dog (proper introductions are key), no small kids, a 6ft fenced yard, and a confident and experienced owner who will continue his training and provide the consistency and structure he needs. He does show early signs of hip dysplasia, but he’s still a medium energy pup who loves walks and playing as much as hanging out on the couch watching Netflix and snoring on your lap. There’s so much more to say about this guy, so if you think your home is right for Julius fill out an application and his foster mom will tell you everything you’d need to know.
FROM THE PREVIOUS RESCUE: Bridgette, a 2 yrs old, medium haired black girl is very, very sweet. Spayed, vaccinated and tested. Came to JJ’s as owner surrender with her 3 identical kittens, looked just like her. She’s been friendly and outgoing from the start. She was skinny at first but has turned into a very good eater, not very picky. Likes to weave around your legs and really likes petting. Currently at the EAPL Cat Adoption Center hosted by Chow Down in Evergreen. Bridgette is fast becoming a volunteer favorite. Be sure to look for her when you visit.
FROM THE PREVIOUS RESCUE: 2 yr old Venus is mom to 1 yr old Daisy. Both are fully vetted. The owner gave them up after the birth of their baby who had severe lung issues. The rescuer said while they have settled in well, Venus is the curious, outgoing one, exploring everything, while Daisy is content to just watch thru the baby gate from their room. She’s very relaxed, just watching what the others are doing. She adores it when foster mom goes in to give pets and love. Both girls are okay with the foster’s 2 rather rambunctious dogs. Currently at the EAPL Cat Adoption Center at Chow Down in Evergreen. Daisy just wanders around the room seeking pets. She doesn’t love the other cats, might be best as the only cat. Be sure to stop by and meet all of our adoptable cats. They are awesome
Jackson is a gentle, quiet boy who enjoys a good nap at any time of day. His favorite activities to engage in when he is not napping include watching rabbits and squirrels in the yard, chewing on his toys, rolling in the grass, and maybe having another nap. Because of the heartworm treatment, he has had to be kept very calm for the past few months, so going for walks is something he can look forward to in the near future. He will need some gentle coaching about walking nicely on the leash and not give in to the temptation to engage with all those fascinating rabbits. He has expressed interest in doing some solo exploring, so to discourage that he will need a fenced yard and supervised outside time until he feels safe in his new home. He can be very skittish in new spaces and will shy away from quick movements. He has been great with the dog that was already in our home, but due to being a homebody during his heartworm treatment, we haven’t seen how he might interact with other dogs out in the world. His previous foster family had 5 dogs and he was very comfortable in that pack and didn’t have any issues. He is very friendly with new people and great with little kids.
Hi! My name is Bailey May! I am a 3.5yo. I am an enthusiastic bundle of love and energy. I love playing fetch, tug, chewing on my treat-filled toys, going on long quiet walks where I can stop and smell the flowers, and I love riding in the car. However, there is nothing in this world I enjoy more than snuggles, hugs, and kisses. I’m not sure how I feel about other dogs (I have in the past gotten along with other dogs with proper intros and I love to play with a dog my age and size), but definitely am not a fan of cats or other small critters. I like children but I do get really excited and jump up. While I’m still working on my manners, I don’t use the restroom in the house. What I am hoping for is a home where I can have a safe place to run and play (a nice safe secure yard), preferably with other no pets, that can also provide plenty of stimulation, entertainment, and endless love.. A forever home.
Meet Nola! Nola is a sweet girl who came up from Texas pregnant and heartworm-positive. She gave birth to 5 of the cutest little puppies, who have found their furever homes, so now it’s Nola’s turn to find her family. She does have minor issues with her knees but the vet says she does not require surgery. Nola is a very sweet and affectionate little girl, but very shy. She takes a good while to warm up, but when she does, she gives the best hugs and snuggles you could ask for. Men scare her, it takes a very long time for her to warm up to men. She will bark and run away. She has been doing well with socializing and will calm down when corrected, but will keep her distance until she is comfortable. Nola would do best with another small or medium dog in the house and a calm household. Fast-moving and noisy kids frighten her so no young kids please. Nola needs a patient understanding family that will give her the chance she deserves.
FROM THE PREVIOUS RESCUE: Mimi appeared at a home where we were doing TNR. She wasn’t part of a colony, just looking to be fed. At first, due to her extreme fear, it was thought she might be feral. But she was pregnant, very close to term so she went into foster and delivered 4 beautiful babies. She has now been fully vetted and is about 2 1/2. Mimi is shy, like so many who have been dumped are; she just needs encouragement, then she is so sweet. I think she’ll make a wonderful companion in a quiet home. Currently at the EAPL Cat Adoption Center at Chow Down in Evergreen. Be sure to stop by and meet all of our adoptable cats. She is beautiful!!
