When Louie was first discovered by one of our shelter partners, he was in horrendous condition...emaciated, heartworm positive, and nearly hairless.
We were eager to welcome him and help continue on his path to health! He is now thriving in his foster home and though he's an older guy who is still being treated for heartworm, he has come leaps and bounds with his health and quality of life.
Per his foster mom, Louie is a sweet and loving pup! He is a pretty big fan of relaxing and chewing bones. He loves his people and is so grateful to be in a foster home. He is definitely an old soul and all around great dog.
Louie gets along really well with all dogs! He currently lives with two female dogs and has even won the heart of his often crabby foster sister. He loves to go on walks and is a good walker, but does like to stop and smell the roses.
Louie is housebroken, but may mark initially. He does great in a crate but may bark for a few minutes at first. He has no destructive tendencies and mostly loves to lay around.
This handsome gent is around 6-9 years old and is now neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He can be adopted at any time and the rescue will continue to cover the cost of his heartworm treatment at our vet's office for the duration of treatment. Louie's adoption fee is $150 and our application can be accessed here: Apply Now
This wonderful guy is about 5 years old and just under 30 lbs. He has lots of charming qualities but we'll let his foster dad tell you more about him:
- Very sweet and friendly
- Good with other people, kids & dogs
- likes to be near me and will follow me around everywhere
- not food aggressive or aggressive in any nature
- does not bark (the most he'll do is a slight whimper)
- knows his name, but could use some obedience training for basic commands
- okay on a leash
- does great in his crate
- house trained as long as he's on a strict schedule (he likes to go out every couple hours during the day)
He's also now neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $300 and you can access our application here: Apply Now
This little creature is even more adorable in person...I mean that neck scruff! We'll be sure to add more photos to her profile soon but for now just trust us. Though her breed mix is a total guess, she's a small breed and at about 7 months old will remain a petite gal.
Per her foster dad, she has been the best puppy and most well-trained foster dog one could ever ask for. I'm really happy she was my first experience fostering and I can't wait to hear when she finds a family that will love her and take care of her like I did! Though she's still perfecting her housebreaking, she sits when you tell her to sit and she loves to get a good treat or some praise.
Though Polly was the only dog in her foster home, she has done great with greeting other dogs so we certainly anticipate that she'd do well in a forever home with other social pets. She is now vaccinated, and heartworm tested and will be spayed and microchipped prior to joining us at the Adoption Center. Her adoption fee is $300 and if interested you can access our application here: Apply Now
This easy-going, fun-loving guy is nothing short of a ball of love. Super affectionate, Fred enjoys eskimo kisses, snuggling, long walks and interactive play--throw him a ball and watch him go! In addition to being crate and potty trained, this little guy is also good at being on walked on the leash. Outside of the occasional tendency to follow his nose and greet new people or other fellow canines in his view during his walk, Fred is a confident walker who loves to take the lead. He does have an affinity for jumping on anyone he meets, so his excitement for contact may also be interpreted as forceful to those who do not immediately recognize his lovable nature. He is also well on his way to learning his name and understands simple commands like, "come here!" and "no!" If the letter b in beagle stood for "bestie" then it doesn't get any better than this companion pup! #teamFred
Fred is about 2 years old and around 30 lbs. He's vaccinated and heartworm tested and will be neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. His adoption fee is $300 and if interested you can access our application here: Apply Now
This beautiful gal is a total gem. In her foster home, Giulia is already housebroken and crate trained although she is good to be left out overnight on her own too. She would prefer to sleep with you as she wants to be by your side and on your lap at all times, even if to lay at your feet while getting ready in the AM! Giulia loves to go outside and play fetch (sticks are her fave!) Indoors she's a quiet gal who rarely, if ever, barks. While on walks she can be leash reactive towards other dogs and is sometimes vocal about it.
We aren't entirely sure of Giulia's breed (Rottie? Dobie? Terrier?) but we anticipate she'll be a medium to large adult as she's currently about 10 months old and around 45 lbs. She's now spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $300 and if interested you can access our application here: Apply Now
Prior to joining us, Cheyanne was shot in the leg which shattered and ultimately had to be removed. Though she did suffer this fate, Cheyenne has a heart of gold. She's a little slow to trust, but once she gets familiar and comfortable all she wants to do is cuddle with you and follow you around the house. She's completely house trained, and loves going on walks and sniffing around.
Cheyanne shares her foster home with other dog and can certainly be a great addition to a permanent home that already has other social animals. At about 2-3 years old, she still has a nice long life ahead of her but is past puppyhood (and has actually been a momma herself) and a mellow sweet adult.
Chey is now spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $300 and if interested you can access our application here: Apply Now
If you're looking for a fun, energetic, goofy companion, Roscoe is your guy. He loves to go on walks, play with other pups, have tug-of-war battles, and cuddle on the couch. He's about a year old, so still needs a bit of training around jumping and walking manners, but he's super smart, and has already started picking up these rules. We haven't had a chance to see how he handles kids, but he's friendly and excited toward every adult he's met so far and we anticipate he'd do well with younger companions too.
He does well in his crate during the day, but he'd much rather be out and about with his people. He'd excel with a quiet space to run and play, like an enclosed yard. With a little time and training, Roscoe can be the perfect dog for your home and family as he is a happy go lucky and universally social guy.
Roscoe is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $300 and you can access our application here: Apply Now
At about four years of age, Major is just about as great as a dog can be. Don't let those big soulful sad eyes fool you, Major is a happy dude who is loving life in his foster home. Major is a world class walking buddy and couch snuggler. Plus he has the cutest spotted ears ever. He already knows sit, stay, and come--such a smartie! Major goes right in his crate with a treat and stays there without any
issues. He's completely housetrained and loves a good car ride. Other
than playing with a couple food related toys he really just walks, eats, sleeps, and cuddles; he's a mellow guy.
He's very calm around people and though he's the only dog in his foster home, he's done great greeting other dogs on walks and also generally just ignores dogs that are rude towards him with barking. He is the scourge of the neighborhood cats though, so a home without feline friends would be best.

This strikingly handsome 2-year old guy has the BIGGEST heart. He wants to please his humans and thrives on routine. He had a couple potty accidents his first couple days, but once he knew his schedule and routine he has been accident free! He has little interest in soft or squeaky toys, but give him a peanut butter/treat filled kong and he will be entertained until every crumb of food is licked up. He also loves chomping down on bones. He is very treat motivated and will sit like a statue once he sees a treat. He takes treats VERY gently. He also knows Paw, Lie Down, No, Come, Off, and Wait, (he's very good at waiting for you to say OK once you drop his food.
At about 70 lbs, Capi is underweight and we are working at getting some meat on his bones. He came from a hoarding situation so consistent meals and attention are all new to him! He LOVES to eat, so I would recommend a slow feeder for him. That way he doesn't eat too quickly and gets indigestion; though he loves mealtime, he doesn't beg or have any bad habits in regards to food.
As if his inside manners weren't good enough he also has perfect manners outside. He walks wonderfully, but I do recommend a harness as he is strong. The only time he pulls is when he wants to reach a smelly patch. He greets dogs very politely on and off his leash. He doesn't have a super playful manner and will usually just watch other dogs play but will try to get into the mix (I think he just needs more time and confidence to figure out how to play). He is also cat friendly.
When Capi first joined us he had major separation anxiety, but that has greatly diminished in his foster home. To err on the side of caution, we're still looking for an adopter that isn't gone traditional work hours and can spend lots of time with Capi, but we are hoping his progress with his anxiety is here to stay.
When you're home, Capi couldn't be more perfect; he would spend all day sleeping on the couch next to you if he could. He is a fast learner in correcting any behavior you find unfit, though that might be difficult! He will pancake himself on the ground when he's in trouble and give you his eyes, but won't stop loving you!

This adorable guy is about 7 years old and loves to be near his humans! He seems just fine with other dogs too (though some large/exuberant dogs may be too much for him) but people are really what he's into. Mister is a really engaging guy who enjoys getting head scratches, sitting pretty for a treat, and then laying by your feet for some down time. He still has a playful streak but is a mostly chill dude so he'd do just fine even if you have a more laid back lifestyle.
Mister isn't great at being left alone and does tend to bark when flying solo so would do best either in a single family home or with a family that is home a fair amount. He doesn't see to have any destructive tendencies, but simply may annoy neighbors with his barking if he were to be left alone in an apartment setting for a traditional work day.

If this girl's gorgeous face alone doesn't sell you, her personality will. The words to describe this 8 month old border collie/pointer mix(?) Playful, loving, gentle, goofy curious and active. Gigi is the best of both worlds, able to play and keep up with those holding a more energetic lifestyle but when home will give endless kisses and sleepy snuggles all hours of the day and night. Her tail never stops wagging -- she's a consistently happy and silly girl who is bound to make an exceptional addition for any household.
Gigi gets incredibly delightful and giddy with every adult, child and animal she meets so much so her entire body wiggles in happiness. She's a total sweetheart but is still a puppy and does often rear up on her hind legs to get closer to your face for lots of kisses (LOVES to lick ears). On walks, Gigi is quick to listen but does occasionally show her more stubborn side with animals and certain scents discovered along the way (but these moments are sporadic and inconsistent). Verbal commands, treats, and praise work best to motivate and teach this pup. When kept on a schedule, she is already house trained and can hold her bladder through the night.
This gal has had several doggie dates with a range of sizes and breeds (both from a toy poodle all the way to a standard great dane) and is equally sweet, submissive and polite in play with all. She is not aggressive, territorial or hostile in nature with food, toys or people. Often she reverts to laying on her back when other animals approach her in play and does more licking, pouncing and following behind than biting or jumping). Because of her age, Gigi tends to become restless and bored more easily and will need a home that can provide constant mental and physical stimulation to keep her working. She would make an excellent companion for a light runner (someone that runs an average 1-3 miles a day) or an even better younger sister to an adult pup that could show her the ropes on how to behave when left alone.
Gigi incredibly sharp, smart (knows and responds to her name very well) and above all food motivated -- we haven't found a treat or toy she doesn't like, which makes teaching her tricks easy and fun. "Sit" and "drop" are already mastered and we're almost there with "down". This dog would excel with basic obedience training and we feel she'd equally enjoy working her brain too! Gigi is a very shy girl at times and still acclimating to the sights and sounds of the big city.
The one thing we're not sure of is her ability to be left alone. Though we've made progress introducing the crate to her and packing it with tons of toys, treats and padding, Gigi becomes extremely anxious when crated and tends to work diligently until she's found a way muscle out at any cost. If it were up to her, she'd never leave your side or room you're in (even if you leave while she's playing with a toy, she'll bring that toy with her and follow you). Gigi attaches/bonds very quickly and because of this, does show separation anxiety and when left alone. Therefore, we are looking for a home for Gigi where someone is often home and/or a single family situation versus an apartment.
Though this 8 month old pup will require a some work and patience, her loyalty to you and her sunggly, affectionate, derpy smiley ways will absolutely make every minute you spend with her worth it. Pack a tennis ball and come on over to the One Tail at a Time house to meet this cutie today!
Gigi is now spayed, vaccianted, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $300 and if interested our application can be accessed here: Apply Now
This beauty is right around a year old and definitely has some fun loving energy but is also a fan of snuggling and curling up for a cuddle session. Per her foster family, she's not a big fan of her crate and is currently working on getting more comfortable with it by being fed and receiving treats/Kongs while in it. She's starting to learn some commands. She's gotten pretty good at 'sit' and is getting better at 'down.' She's also learning to go find a toy when getting too mouthy, and she really likes the squeaky rabbit.
Brooklyn is very good on walks and in the park, and likes being on a long rope and playing fetch. Maybe the harness that clips in the front helps, but she hardly pulls at all, even when passing people and dogs. The times she's played with other dogs with some freedom she's been rough and tumble but not aggressive. Though she had a couple accidents while settling into foster, on a schedule Brooklyn seems to be housebroken and is good at going while out on her walks.
The most fun thing about her is how people-oriented she is. She follows her foster parents around watching what they do intently, and when I pet her she wags her tail so enthusiastically it is grin inducing! She seems to like everyone she meets without a second thought and she'd be very happy in any home that gives her plenty of love and attention.

At just under a year old and around 40 lbs, Dexter is a shy guy who missed out on socialization in puppyhood. He currently shares his foster home with another dog and really seems to thrive with the company of another canine companion.
Dexter has zero fear aggression issues, but due to his timid nature will need a patient adopter who gives he plenty of time to bond and adjust to his new home and family. We think he'd really thrive in a single family home in the suburbs where he can have his own space and not be overwhelmed by the big city noises.
This sweetheart will be worth the effort has he is a sweet guy who deserves a loving forever family. Dexter is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $300 and if interested you can access our application here: Apply Now
Kane is a great old boy! He loves to snuggle and be near his people and is happiest when he's getting some love 🙂 He's housebroken and great with other dogs and cats and would fit in well to most any home. He seemed to have had a flea reaction in his past life but is slowly but surely growing back all of his hair. Kane doesn't hear too well (or at all) but he "listens" well if he can see you and it doesn't seem to bother him one bit!
This handsome sweetheart is about 10-years-old and is eager to spend his golden years in a loving home. Kane is now neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $150 and you can access our application here: Apply Now
Amanda Hugginkiss is one squishy, lovable, playful, sweet gal! Her foster family reports she is super duper sweet, quiet and mellow in the house, and seems to do well in her crate. She also is friendly with people of all ages and loves snuggling with kiddos was well as adults.
This chunky monkey (who could stand to loose a few pounds, but hey join the club) is about 56years old and around 50-55 lbs. Her favorite activities are cuddling, watching movies, and lounging on the couch. She also enjoys taking in the sights and smells while on her strolls. Amanda is such a total gem, but her one hang up is that she is leash reactive towards other dogs. Her foster family has learned to manage this behavior, but it is something any adopter needs to be prepared for and she does need to be the only pooch in her new home.
This doll is vaccinated, heartworm tested, spayed, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $300 and if you'd like to be preapproved for adoption, you can access our survey here: Apply Now
When Butch first came to us, he had not one but two broken legs! Thankfully, they have now healed and though there's a chance he may be more prone to arthritis down the road, he doesn't need surgery and when you meet him cast-free, you'd never even know he was injured!
Butch is about a year old and around 40 lbs. He's a great medium size and his super soft tiger fur is what dreams are made of! Butch is super treat motivated and smart, he's already mastered housebreaking, sit, stay, paw and he's even working on roll over! He's great on leash and loves every single person he meets.
Butch is fantastic, but he will need some help with separation anxiety (he barks when left alone) and mouthiness. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body, but he needs a home where he can get all his energy out and get some training. With that structure this guy is going to be *amazing*!
