Tux

Tux just wandered down our driveway a few weeks ago. We looked for his parents but couldn’t find them. He was well groomed and appeared well taken care of but he was lost. He has been neutered and up to date on all his vaccines. He has not been introduced to others dogs yet.

Tuffy is an older guy looking for the perfect lap!

Tuffy is a 10 year old Lhasa Apso. Until a couple months ago he thought he had his forever home. Then he lost his eyesight and his family decided it was time to find him a new home. Wags Inn Canine Charities took him in and learned that he is a very good dog that doesn’t realize he is blind. He has adapted well to his new surroundings here.

He would prefer a 1 story home so he doesn’t have to worry about falling down steps. He loves to explore the yard, he would prefer a fenced in yard. He does very well on a leash. He will lay in bed and chew on nylabones, or loves sitting on the couch with you getting snuggles and love. He does very well in his crate. He loves all dogs and people and children. He has so much love to give someone. Please come meet with this sweet boy.

He has had a donor pay for his adoption fee!

Zed and Hugo are looking for a home

Zed is a Miniature Pinscher (black and tan) and is approximately 6 months old. He is a great fetcher and is trying to be potty trained. He is very outgoing.

Hugo, is a Min Pin mix. He’s gray in color with tan markings. He is a loving lapdog (a little shy). He loves taking baths and showers. Hugo is approximately 10 months old. He’s a little better in the potty training department.re

These two are from the same mother (separate litters). They love to play with one another and have improved with other pets. They seem to keep one another company.

Dog Flu

What are the symptoms dog flu?

Kennel Cough (also known as Bordetella) is like the common cold in adults. It is contagious, but rarely fatal and runs its course in a few days. Symptoms include a dry, hacking cough, as if something is stuck in the dog’s throat.

Canine Influenza is highly contagious.  The symptoms are similar, but the cough produced by the canine flu virus is often soft and moist.  The flu cough is usually accompanied by a high fever, lack of appetite, lack of energy and a runny nose.  Pneumonia can develop in dogs with severe Canine Influenza.

Who is most at risk?

All dog breeds are equally prone to the Canine Influenza Virus.   Most at risk are those dogs who are active and social, simply because they are out and exposed more.   Dogs with pushed-in faces (like Pekingeses, Pugs, Bulldogs or French Bulldogs) may have a harder time bouncing back from any respiratory problem.  People and cats cannot contract CIV.

What do I do if I think my dog is sick or has been exposed to the virus?

If your dog is at risk or is experiencing symptoms, get the dog to a vet as soon as possible.  Dog owners whose dogs are coughing or showing other signs of respiratory disease should not expose other dogs to the virus.  If your dog is coughing, as a precaution and a courtesy to others, your dog should be isolated from other dogs–including those dogs in vet waiting rooms.  Clothing, equipment, surfaces, and hands should be cleaned and disinfected after exposure to dogs showing any signs of respiratory disease.

Fern is looking for her home!

Fern is a hound mix that are approx 9 months old. She was found hiding in the woods in the same spot as Josephine was found. She is spayed and up to date on vaccines.  She loves playing with other dogs. It takes her a little bit to warm up to new people but once she has warmed up she is your best friend. She does get along with children and is crate trained. We have been working on riding in the car sometimes she gets sick and going to new places so she can meet with new people and experience new things.
