WCFA’S featured pet is BJ.  BJ is an active six-year old 16 lbs Lhasa Apso mix who is looking for his forever home. BJ enjoys belly rubs and will roll on his side for those rubs. He also enjoys back scratches. BJ has been to doggy day care and he does very well playing with dogs that he likes. At doggy day care, BJ has played with both male and female dogs. In his foster home, BJ enjoys playing with the larger female dog, is fine with one of the small male dogs, but is not keen on the other small male dog. We feel BJ would benefit having a playful larger female dog companion.  BJ benefits from a long walk each day. While BJ can be dog reactive on leash, he and his foster person have many pleasant walks together in the neighborhood. It would be helpful that any prospective adopter understands dog behavior, is patient and is an in-charge person.  BJ is house trained with a dog door and sleeps through the night in a dog bed. He loves squeaky toys and occasionally will play fetch.  BJ requires regular professional grooming. BJ is neutered, up to date on vaccines and is micro chipped.

Other Available Pets:


 Cal is a quiet, mild mannered 4 year old tabby cat.  He lived with an elderly woman so would do best in a quieter home.  Cal enjoys sitting on the cat tree and watching the world go by.   He is a sweet boy and does not bother anyone.  He just wants a space to sit back and enjoy the scenery.  Once he becomes comfortable in a household he will want to hang around with you for a nice brushing or petting.

Bonnie is a beautiful 10 year young Siamese.  She is very loving and easy going.  Bonnie and Samantha lived together until their mom went to hospice care.  Bonnie is current on vaccines, spayed and micro chipped.  It would be nice if Bonnie and Samantha could go together but we will place them separately.

Samantha is a 10 year young Maine Coon.  She is very sweet and gentle.  Her mom is in hospice so Samantha is looking for a new loving home.  Samantha is current on vaccines, spayed and micro chipped.  She lived with another cat, Bonnie, who is also up for adoption to new loving home.


 Theodore (Theo) is a 3 year old Chihuahua mix, a shy little guy initially, but once he warms up to new people and surroundings, he is a happy camper. Theodore came to us when one of his owners passed and the other person could no longer care for him.  Theodore loves to be a cuddle buddy, is house trained, does not mark indoors, enjoys walks and rides well in a vehicle. Theodore came to us at just under 18 lbs and with daily walks and a diet, he is now down to 14.5 lbs.  He appreciates a quiet home environment and is fine with other compatible dogs and does well with cats. He is an easy going little dog. Theodore is neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and has received a dental.

Buddy is about 3 1/2 to 4 years old and weighs 47 lbs. He is an Australian Cattle Dog/Heeler mix.   He was found as a stray but has been someone’s pet as he is neutered.  Buddy gets along fine with other dogs, is house trained and really would like an active family and one with a fenced yard.  Buddy is a well behaved young man.  He has been brought current on vaccines and is micro chipped.  Buddy would make an excellent hiking companion.

Jessie is a senior black lab (12 yrs. old).  He is a very mellow, gentle guy.  His mom passed several months ago and his dad is going into a care facility.  Jessie would love a home where he can enjoy a forever family.  Jessie is house trained to a dog door and gets along well with other dogs.  He is neutered and current on vaccines.  Jessie has one foot that has been damaged from an old injury, however, he gets along just fine.  If you would consider giving Jessie a loving home, please contact us to meet this wonderful senior.

Pepper is a Border Collie-Pom mix weighing in at 30 lbs, a nice medium size.  Pepper walks well on leash, has a good recall, knows leave it, sit, wait and down. Pepper has a sweet demeanor, likes people and takes direction well from a confident leader. She is crate trained. Pepper loves and needs her daily walks. Once she bonds with you, she will worship you. She is calm in a calm environment. She will react to others dogs unless told to “leave it.” Pepper will not react if she knows you are in charge.  Although Pepper currently lives with two other senior dogs, she would do best as the only dog in a home as she likes to have all of the attention and bonds to a leader.
Pepper is 7.5 years, spayed, current on her vaccines and will be micro chipped upon adoption. Some pre-paid training by a certified dog trainer who has been working with Pepper will be available for Pepper’s new owner to understand what her needs are.

Birdie is a 9 month old Chihuahua blend.  She is house trained, fully vaccinated, spayed (on Mar 6) & micro chipped.  She weighs 5.3 lbs.  She has loved all of the dogs, big and small, in her foster home!  Birdie loves to chew on Nylabones and play with toys. She seems to like all people. She does have that wild puppy energy, so she needs someone willing to provide her with exercise and help her learn the basic commands and manners.  She is not a quiet lap dog. She would do fine with well mannered children.
