Amelia is a beautiful approximately 5 year old, 42 lb Staffordshire terrier mix. She was abandoned by her family in Texas. When they moved out of their apartment they left her outside their building. She sat there for weeks on end awaiting their return. A kind local good Samaritan helped her find her way to Wagging Tails. Amelia's foster family gives her a 5 star rating as she is the perfect houseguest. She is completely housebroken when kept on a schedule, is very obedient and knows her basic commands. She sits patiently and waits for her treats, taking them very gently from your hand. She loves to carry her toys around in her mouth or play ball but she is also very content to be cuddling on the couch with you. Amelia loves children and being with her people. Amelia is working on her leash manners along with her manners with other dogs. It is obvious that Amelia is so grateful for being saved. Click here for Application


Wendy aka Luna is the cutest little Maltese you will ever meet! She is about 6 years young and weighs in at 11lbs. She can be a bit shy at first and will need to go to a quiet all adult home with someone who is patient and will go slow with her. Wendy likes to go on her leash walks and since she is a smart little girl she has become really good at walking on the leash. Wendy definitely needs to go to a home with another small dog to show her the way. She is wee wee pad trained but will also go to the bathroom outside. Wendy sleeps through the night in the foster mom's bed and can hold it until morning. Wendy has a slight eye twitch and a front leg twitch that the vets have determined most likely are the residual effects of having distemper as a puppy. That said the twitches are barley noticeable and do not seem to affect her one bit. She will bark when left alone and likes to be with her "people" so she would probably do better with someone that is around during the day. No apartments for this beautiful girl. Wendy is currently on a special diet for urinary tract health. Click here for Application

Meet Ollieā€¦ Ollie is about 3 years old and 13lbs. This boy came all the way from South Korea where he was surrendered to our partner rescue. Ollie would do best in an adult only home or a home with kids over 15 years of age. He can be skiddish at first but warms up nicely. He loves to cuddle with that special person. He enjoys outside time and he loves to lay on his foster moms deck. A fenced in backyard would be a great added bonus. No apartments for this boy as he tends to bark at unfamiliar noises. Ollie is doing great with his housebreaking and gets along well with all his friends in his foster home. Ollie is looking for a home with another dog or with someone with dog experience. We would not suggest Ollie go to a home with a first time dog owner. Click here for Application
