GIVE A GUY HIS GOLDEN YEARS WHILE HE STILL HAS SOME! Bibi, aka Habib, Sweet, mild-mannered, purebred feathered Saluki was surrendered by his owner and since he is a senior, he needs a new home asap so that he can enjoy the rest of his golden years in the arms of his Rest-of-His-Life person. He passed our indoor cat test just fine but we do not make any guarantees since conditions can change outcomes. He also has been fine with our dogs, but again, no guarantees across the board. To ensure compatibility, all others in the new home will need meet to assess compatibility before a placement is finalized. Although Habib’s previous owner says he had recently developed a food bowl reactivity with some of the other dogs in the house, clarifying that this reactivity is only regarding his food bowl at meals, NOT a problem with treats etc nor with toys, and that it was soft mouth only–he had not caused any skin breaks, nor had he shown any aggression to humans–we have not seen any food reactivity here; in fact the other dog we treat him together with in the yard tends to get a bit more in Habib’s space for treats and Habib has not reacted. (Nevertheless, always feed separately.) The surrendering owner felt that the activity level of her multi special needs dog household may have had something to do with this new behavior. Habib is used to having a dog door and insists on having in and out privileges. We do not normally condone dog doors but will make an exception in his case so long as there is direct supervision when in use. Habib can be placed between Northern California and Washington state. If you are interested in Habib, please visit www.houndsanctuary.org/bibi for more photos, and read www.houndsanctuary.org/about-adoption before applying for him. You can also visit our Instagram feed to view more videos of him with another of our rescue dogs, and our Facebook page for more photos and updates. www.instagram.com/HoundSanctuary and www.facebook.com/HoundSanctuary. BiBi’s fee is currently $200.

Aria is a stunning, wire-haired Galga Espanol, with an estimated birthdate of August 2013. She bonds closely with her trusted human(s) and becomes rather affectionate and velcroish, though does not exhibit signs of SA. She is hesitant with people she does not know, and will wait until they have proven themselves before trusting. Aria is smart and generally calm, though tender/sensitive, so our training program with her is at her own pace. Once she got settled, she learned “sit” and “foot please” (right, left–in preparation for nail trims), and it seemed she was excited when she accomplished those, as she would pop up for a big hug after finishing her sessions successfully. Aria is housetrained and is not a chewer, not destructive. She is good on leash generally but is a bit nervous about cars. She knows “come” but as with most sighthounds, that is not reliable enough for off leash when there is prey in sight. She can jump quite high and she is very fast. A minimum six foot high fence with no climbable parts or items nearby is crucial for her. Aria may be placed within 4 to 6 hours driving distance, maximum, of Gearhart, Oregon, for the right home.

Solace is a Galgo Espanol, playful and bouncy outside in the yard and generally relaxed indoors; he loves to be petted and talked to though and sometimes gets excited when his humans enter. He was very friendly and social with us immediately upon arrival, and likes to try to get all the attention he can. Solace has an estimated birth year of 2012, and one of the longest tails we have ever seen! He was cat tested in Spain and tested fine but we have not tested him here yet. He was also tested fine with male and female dogs in Spain; here he has only been tested with Aria; his female roomie. Solace is super cute and very smart. He learns quickly and is eager to trigger positive reinforcement in the form of treats. 🙂 If you want a happy, bouncy hound who is full of joy and love, this may be your hound.
Cues: Solace has learned UP (as in on the couch/in the van etc); DOWN (as in lie down); SH/QUIET; SIT; COME; STOP; GO PEE. (Solace is, of course, house-trained.) We are working on WAIT and STAY. Solace will need a non climbable, dig-proof, minimum 6 foot high fence.

Ripple is a Podenco Canario with an estimated DoB of February 2015. He is super sweet and friendly with people he with whom he is comfortable, a really great guy. He loves cuddles and affection more than anything–except food. At the Oregon sanctuary he has been fine with both indoor cats. He is a very nice, loving, cuddly, funny, goofy dog that seeks the right adopter and home. He’s had many applicants but no one quite right for him yet; when that right one does come along, there WILL be happiness all around because Ripple is quite a catch. He is a very special boy.
Ripple is housetrained, and he knows SIT, COME, and GO PEE. He also knows leave it/drop it but better in Spanish than in English.
Update(s). With work on Ripple’s initial noise startle/fears, he has made huge progress and now barely reacts at all to noises; when he does, he recovers quickly and easily to most every noise. He also is doing much better on walks. Still some nervousness with cars on the road but again much improved. He also has more confidence when another person and dog join us on walks. Basically he seems to be a boy that needs a little time to adjust to new things, especially new BIG things, but he does adjust well when handled properly. Placement will be within 6 hours drive to Gearhart, Oregon or less. Ripple requires secure minimum 6 foot tall, no climb privacy fencing attached to his home.

Wire-haired podenca, 3 years old apx. Housetrained, calm inside, playful outside, good with other dogs. Fine with our indoor cats when she has shared space with them. Is extremely fearful of strangers, but very sweet once she knows/trusts you, asking for attention by pawing for cuddles and eventually climbing up in-lap. 🙂 Outdoors she is boisterous, enjoying a good run around the yard, sometimes followed by a little grass, sand, or sun bath. A smaller podenca, Zinnia is about 30-35 pounds and very beautiful. She is treat motivated when not nervous, knows “sit” quite well, and “come” fairly well. She also is pretty good with “down” (lie down) and “sh”/”quiet,” and so-so with “wait.” We think that Zinnia would be a real gift for someone seeking a cuddle buddy indoors/play buddy outdoors and who is patient and truly respects LIMA. This little girl is worth it, and the person willing to make the needed efforts will be the one that deserves her. Adoption must be within 4 to 6 hours drive from Gearhart, Oregon or less.
