OUR DOGS

 

We believe that all dogs are a lifetime commitment and members of the family and strive to find homes that share this same core belief. Every dog is unique in its physical needs and personality. Our goal is to match families with dogs that best suit each other’s needs.

To better convey the needs of our doggos to potential furever homes, we've decided to divide them up based on temperament. Please make certain to thoroughly review bios before submitting an application for a certain dog. 

**Please note that the QBSDR Ranch is not open to the public. All meet n' greets are scheduled by appointment after an application has been approved.**

 
 

BEGINNER

Based solely on temperament, these dogs would be appropriate for a first-time dog owner that has little or no previous dog training experience.

  ZOLTAN  Male, 12 years old  Came to QBSDR after both parents passed away. Is one of those guys that steals hearts, spreads smiles, and always finds things to be grateful for, even if it’s just chillin in someone’s lap.  He is a hefty boy that has some additional weight to lose to ease the arthritis in his left knee and hip dysplasia. Recently had a large lipoma on his right abdomen removed which unfortunately tested positive for Soft Cell Sarcoma.

INTERMEDIATE

These dogs require an experienced dog owner as many may have behavioral issues such as reactivity, resource guarding, or separation anxiety. Please read bios thoroughly.

 
  DOOGIE  Male, ~6 years old  Surrendered to rescue when he was 2yrs old due to food aggression and lack of socialization to his environments. Over the years, he's made vast improvements with his foster.  Has a tendency to get overly excited, which can quickly escalate. He's improved on his manners and leash behaviors while out, but will need a leader to help him continue being a well behaved dog. When he reacts, he will bark, lunge, and spin, but settles quickly with redirection. His food aggression has improved and will step away when asked to leave it.  He needs a leader who will continue to teach him impulse control and to wait for his release command. Doogie knows his basic obedience commands, is crate trained, and walks well on leash. He's make a great companion as an only dog or with a mellow male or female. He's a good candidate for a first time corgi owner with dog experience. We do not recommend Doogie in a home with young children.

  GEORGE  Male, 11.5 years old  Came to QBSDR as an extremely obese owner surrender. We’ve been working on his fitness and are happy to announce that   homie has a waistline!  Has quite a few issues: arthritis in back, narrowed disc space, bone spurs, and hips that are in poor condition — most of which can be attributed to his weight. In addition, a very large (benign) mass was removed from his booty area when he first came to us. An additional mass removed from behind his ear came back as Grade 2 mast cell tumor.  Working on crate training, waiting for food, and being desensitized to physical handling, brushings, and the feeling of a leash around his neck. Good with other dogs, unknown with cats, and would be best with older, respectful kids that will respect the aches and pains of his body.  Georgie needs a super committed and dedicated family to help him reach his fullest potential! George has more weight to lose and will be looking for someone to help him get to his goal weight of 30-32lbs. This potential home should also know that he will potentially have more mast cell tumors develop in the future that will need to be removed.

SANCTUARY DOGS

We are so thankful to be able to give them a loving home and grateful for their enduring spirits.

  COMET  Male, 5 years old.  Comet is a black and white Merle Pembroke which a clear indicator that Comet was a very irresponsibly bred corgi.  Has seborrheic dermatitis, hip dysplasia, spondylosis of the spine, and severe allergies. Attrition of the teeth, which have worn the enamel down to the gums. Upon intake at 3.5yrs, Comet already had hip dysplasia and spondylosis of the spine, a degenerative condition that will continue to worsen as he ages. He has bone spurs growing from multiple vertebrae that have begun fusing together.  Comet didn't ask for any of these things to happen to him, he didn't breed himself - he's just accepted, dealt, and continued on, aware of his limitations, and showing his gratitude and appreciation through his soulful eyes and gentle kisses.  Comet loves a comfy bed, enjoys squeaky toys and a warm snuggle. His favorite past time is tracking and herding flies, taking leisurely strolls, and lounging around with his senior brofurs. Comet is good with dogs, good with respectful children, and unknown with cats.

  FOXXY LADY  Female, senior  Miss FoxxyLady was recently re-surrendered to us and will be working to regain her confidence. She became extremely reactive to dogs and people, which was not creating a safe space for her or the humans in her life. Foxxy was very loved and well cared for but things just didn’t work out. What’s viewed as completely normal interaction for most dog owners ended up communicating all the wrong things to this gorgeous girl.    She’s wary of people, higher energy dogs, and will snap if anyone goes to touch her. On the plus side, her trust is building. Early on after being returned, she wouldn’t even follow. That’s not the case anymore - Susan frequently finds her in follower mode. She’s getting as much time and patience as she needs to come out of her shell. When it comes to fearful and reactive dogs, you can’t rush them - trust and respect take time and it’s all on their terms. She’s okay without pets and actually prefers a simple head nod of acknowledgement. The more space you give, the more she’ll follow you, knowing she can trust you to respect her boundaries.
