Male Long Haired Dachshund Available Soon - Apollo Puppy

Friday, August 12, 2022

Hello. I'm Apollo. I'm a handsome medium to long haired Dachshund mix. My fosters say my best feature is my shiny black fur. I'm shy but slowly gaining confidence . I live with other furry kids ranging in size from 13 pounds to 80 pounds. I also share my space with a horse. I am not too sure what to think of him, so I give him a couple of barks when I see him. I love doing zoomies, chew on my toys, and love treats.




I am playful, and learning to walk on a leash. I'm a bit shy of humans but my foster dad and mom are giving me plenty of hugs, kisses and cuddles to prepare me on the next phase of my journey to finding my own family. My fosters are willing to travel a reasonable distance to find my forever family.

Male Chihuahua Looking For New Home

Sunday, July 24, 2022

UPDATE: Zeus was adopted. He now lives with wonderful pawrents in Canada. His daily walks include beach time!


Meet Zeus. He is sweet and playful. It is hard to believe that he was found as a stray fending for himself in the streets of Yakima. He had wounds on his inner thigh and neck. Zeus was very thin when the shelter took him in. 




Our organization rescued him from the shelter, nursed him back to health and under our vet's guidance, Zeus has now gained weight. His wounds were treated and sutures are going to be removed Monday, August 1st.. Our vet has cleared this little guy for adoption.




Zeus is a smart, active, and playful boy. The shelter we rescued him from estimated his age to be about 4 years however, our vet thinks he is closer to 2 years old. His "before" and "after" pictures are quite revealing of the transformation Zeus has gone through. He certainly acts like a puppy with his curiosity, playfulness, and athleticism. With all the trauma Zeus has gone through, he never lost faith in humanity. He remains a happy young dog.

Zeus' coat is nice and sleek and is mostly black. His feet are white like little booties. His face has white fur and so does his neck. 




This little fella barks at potential friends until sniffing is all done with. He is quick to make new dog friends. He is untested with cats and children.

Zeus is great on a leash, loves toys, treats, and is very food motivated. His adoption fee includes microchip, bed, leash, harness and toys. He currently is wearing an extra small harness which still a bit loose on his chest area. Little Zeus is paper trained and house-trained. 

Meet Zeus and fall in love. He will travel a reasonable distance to meet his new forever family.


Zeus' Bio: 

Application fee: $350

9 lbs

Altered male

2 to 4 years old

Great on a leash 

Working on basic commands

Okay with other dogs

House trained and paper trained

Female German Shepherds Looking For New Homes

Thursday, April 28, 2022

Once upon a time, 4 German Shepherds lived on a farm in Okanogan Highlands. Their human dad showered them with love. Unfortunately, dad lost the lease on his property. He is having a challenging time finding new home for himself and his beloved dogs. Dad found one of our flyers. So here we are, 2 weeks before dad has to move. We called volunteers, other dog rescues, and contacts to find homes for these wonderful soon to be homeless dogs.

Nala is a 6-year old pure bred German Shepherd. She is 110 lbs.

Update: Nala was adopted by a local couple
(Yippee! We can visit her)

Homeless Dog Wants To Be Center of Your World

Wednesday, April 6, 2022

This tan and white Chihuahua/Dachshund mix wants to be the center of your world! She is agile and quick on her feet. Aggie is sweet and longs for her forever home. 

Aggie was rescued from a SE Washington shelter where she stayed for most of 2021. She would do well in a one person household and prefers females. However, she does get along with our male volunteers, her male foster, and older kids.  She likes walks and trots. Aggie gets spooked easy so she would do best in a home with a fenced yard or with an experienced and responsible dog owner. A structured lifestyle would also help Aggie to be her best. 

Aggie's colors are more like a Chihuahua's. However, her body type suggests more of Dachshund look. Aggie loves cuddles and belly rubs. She is house-trained and knows basic commands. Aggie is wonderful on a leash.





Agg's Bio:

Breed - Chihuahua and Dachsund Mix

Age - 12 years old

Gender - Female

Size - 15 lbs

Spayed/Neutered - yes

Housetrained - yes

Commands: Come, walk (she gets ready when you grab her leash and harness), responds to her name, (stop or wait hand command), no, and bed.

Up to date on vaccines (rabies, distemper parvo, dewormed)

Would do best in a one-person household with no other animals

Behavior and attitude - Loves cuddles and belly rubs. Wants to be the center of your world

Last vet health check: 14/22 (not on medication, ready for adoption)

Adoption fee: $150 (Seniors for Seniors Program)

Combat Cognitive Decline In Dogs: Use Food Puzzles, Snuffle Mats

Cognitive decline is a reality in dogs. Having 4 senior dogs myself (lost my 5th one 1 day before he turned 17), I try to find ways to encourage mental stimulation daily. Because a dog's life is so short, symptoms can feel overwhelming and with a rapid onset of symptoms. Yes, dogs can develop dementia or canine cognitive dysfunction syndrome (CCDS).


George
Dachshund 12 years old


Using the acronym DISHAL can help us identify symptoms:

Disorientation: Staring at walls, getting trapped behind furniture or corners. My Willy was getting trapped behind my toilet and tables. This was very hard for me to witness.

Interactions: Changes in interactions with pets or people. These changes include aggression, changes in frequency of interaction or irritability. Willy became socially withdrawn during the last couple years of his life.

Sleep-wake cycle changes: Increased sleep during the day and less sleep during the night. This was especially challenging for me. Willy would pace at night.

House soiling: Increased accidents inside the house. 

Activity changes: Pacing, anxiety, wandering, walking in circles.

Learning difficulties/memory loss: Inability to learn new tasks or forgetting previously learned skills.

Dog experts advice the use of food puzzles, snuffle mats, making a scent trail (drag something smelly on the floor with a nice treat at the end), train and re-train (sit, leave it, place, tug, fetch), chew toys, massage and acupuncture.

I would love to hear your experiences with your senior dog!


Willy at 16 years old

Even with advancing age, I try to take my pack on our daily hikes. I bring a baby sling just in case one of the little ones tire out. Here's a picture of my 11 year old girl after a hike up steep terrain. She naps for a while after such hikes:

Here at Fur Ever Yours Dog Rescue, we are trying to focus on rescuing senior dogs. Sadly, they are often overlooked in shelters. Senior dogs may withdraw or show signs of aggression in a shelter environment. Help us rescue senior dogs by donating to our Seniors for Seniors Program. Donate link available here.
