Poppy, Female

Let me reintroduce myself, my name is Poppy! Poppy is amost 1 years old and spayed. Poppy is up to date on all of her vaccinations and preventitives. Poppy and her sister Bonnie came to the foundation when they were little pups and both got adopted. Poppy has since returned to us as her little human developed allergies. Poppy is crate trained and potty trained. She loves children, the water, hiking, the beach and her humans! Having a playmate is an absolute must for Poppy, however, she does not like cats. Foster mom reports that Poppy has medium energy but can get overstimulated when she plays. Poppy is food motivated and doing really well with learning new commands. When we think of Poppy's future home we feel it looks like an adventurious individual and/or family. She does have some separation anxiety (foster mom is working on it) so being alone for 8+ hours a day is not ideal for her. If Poppy seems like the missing puzzle piece to your life/family, please complete an adoption application here and ask for her by name!

Buster, male  

MEET BUSTER! Buster is approximately 7 months old and he is neutered. Currently, Buster is 35lbs and still has some growing to do! Since we don't know his exact breed, we're just calling him da kine ? Buster was found fending for himself on the west side of the island on the beach. We suspect that Buster has never lived in a home with a family, let alone any hoomans.
Foster dad reports that Buster is a pretty cool guy! He recently met the dog that lives next door and already has a play date set up. Needless to say, Buster would thrive in a home with another dog! We're still unsure of how he would do with cats or tiny hoomans but have high hopes!
We picture Buster's future home that likes to cruise around and like to be active as Buster is an adventurous guy! If you're interested in meeting Buster, please complete an adoption application here and ask for him by name! We don’t think it will take long for this cool dude to find his forever human(s).


Meet Molly, a 3-4 year old spayed, female, Yorkie/schnauzer mix. Molly was saved from a horrendous breeding ring. Foster mom describes her as sweet, happy, and LOVES to snuggle! Molly is a bit nervous but aims to please. Molly's future home looks a lot like a human companion that has the time to spend with her. She also loves car rides and walks. Molly girl doesn't have a mean bone in her body, she's just a little timid.
We recommend no children in the home. We're unsure of how Molly would be with cats but we have faith that she would do okay. Molly likes other dogs. Some things that Molly needs to work on is potty training. Molly will need regular grooming as she can be prone to ear infections so needless to say, grooming is an imporant key for her future home! Although she might have hair vs. fur, we wouldn't call her hypoallergenic. If you're interested in meeting Molly, please complete an adoption application here and ask for her by name!

Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you? Male IS PENDING ADOPTION!

Meet Scooby or "the Scoobster"! Scooby is about 1 year old and came to us from the Humane Society. Scooby is fully vaccinated and neutered. Scooby can be a little timid so we don't recommend children in the home that don't quite understand boundaries. When Scooby finds himself in stressfull situations, he tends to shut down and nip but does not mean any harm! 
Scooby currently lives in a foster home with HDF Almuni, Ellie. Foster mom reports that he does prettty well! Routine is key for Scoob, as well as regular grooming. Although the Scoobster might have fur, we cannot guaruntee he is a hypoallergenic dog. We're unsure of cats at this time. We picture Scooby's future home as hoomans that have the time to dedicate, maybe retired and looking for a pal to hand out with. If you're interested in meeting Scooby, please complete an adoption application here and ask for him by name!


Lucy Grace is about 1-2 years old. She is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations/preventatives! Lucy currently weighs about 40lbs. Foster mom has nothing but amazing things to report about this sweet girl. Lucy is crate trained, gets along with other dogs and children, and enjoys planing ball. Lucy Grace does well walking on a leash and foster mom reports that she hardly barks! 
So far, we think her perfct home looks like another dog with hoomans that have a more relaxed schedule so Lucy Grace can play ball, enjoy frequent belly rubs, and explore with a pal. If you're interested in meeting Lucy Grace, please complete an adoption application here and ask for her by name!

Junior, male  

Junior is a 2 1/2 year old male and looking for his furever home! If Junior could talk to us and tell us what kind of home he'd like, it'd look a lot like having paw-rents who have time to play with me every day. Junior also would be a perfect running buddy if that's your thing! Juniors goals look a lot like hiking, snuggles, more snuggles. Junior has lived with other dogs previously but at this time we recommend he be the only dog in the home. We know that Junior is not fond of cats or smaller dogs. We don't recommend a home with small children. Foster mom reports that Junior knows basic commands like sit and stay. He's a pretty fast learner. Junior is potty trained, neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations. Foster mom is working on some basic leash and crate training skills before he heads off to his new home, where ever that may be! Junior does suffer from some separation anxiety but with the right training, he'll be golden! It's recommended that there be an ALPHA in the home as Junior can be a little bit of a pushy guy. PSA: Junior comes with a ginormous bean bag (it's pretty cool) but it is something he really loves and feels comfortable on. If you're interested in meeting Junior, please complete an adoption application here and ask for him by name!
