Pepper, Australian terrier mix

Pepper is a lovable female Australian terrier mix being cared for at Wagging Tails Rescue.

Pepper loves other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Pepper will do best in a home without small children. She's already been spayed.

From Pepper's current caretaker:

Pepper is a 3-4 year old adorable scruffy terrier who is quiet and mild mannered. This shy girl needs time to get to know you before happily cuddling into your lap and feeling safe. She does well with other dogs and at only 10 pounds she doesn't take up too much room on the couch.

James, chihuahua

James is a sweet male chihuahua currently residing at Wagging Tails Rescue.

No other pets, please: James is looking for a forever home without other dogs or cats. Wagging Tails Rescue recommends James be placed in a home without small children. He's already been neutered.

From James's current caretaker:

James is the ultimate cuddle bug once he has a chance to get to know you and feel safe. This cute little man was terrified in the shelter, but after a couple of hours in his foster home, he was attached to his foster mom like he'd known her forever. James does fine with most other dogs but would also be perfectly content as your one and only. He is approximately 2 years old and 11 pounds.

Mabel, standard poodle mix

Mabel is a female standard poodle mix in the care of Wagging Tails Rescue.

Mabel will get along great with your other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. She's already been spayed.

Here's what Mabel's friends at Wagging Tails Rescue think of her:

Mabel is the complete package! She is about 3-4 years old, around 35 pounds and is doing really well with house-training. Mabel is a cuddle bug who loves attention, playing with other dogs and getting her head scratched. She will listen to you talk all day and does an adorable head tilt to show she is listening. Her favorite thing in the world is to be able to curl up on your couch and take a nap.

Vic, dachshund and chihuahua mix

Vic is a lovable male dachshund and chihuahua mix in the care of Wagging Tails Rescue.

Vic is friendly as can be, and he's happy to keep company with children, cats or dogs. He's neutered.

Here's what Vic's friends at Wagging Tails Rescue think of him:

Vic is a long-legged handsome boy who is learning how great life is in a loving foster home — he can't wait to find his forever home! He is a shy boy likely due to being an outdoor dog who received little attention prior to coming into rescue. He gets along well with other dogs and can live with cats too. He is learning the doggy door quickly. Vic is the perfect size for someone who wants a dog to go on walks with but who won't take up too much room on the couch! He will be best suited for a quiet home with someone who has the patience to help his confidence grow.
