One of our sweet mutts

Nessa 4341

Papillon | Female | Size: small (6-20 lbs)

Nessa 4341

Nessa is an adorable Papillon whose owner passed away. Now, this adorable girl is looking for a new best friend. Could it be you? Nessa is very social and sweet. She does great with other dogs, rarely barks, is house-trained, and loves meeting new people. Like most Papillons she is very loyal and would love a companion to spend her golden years with. Come meet this sweet girl!

Nessa is about 11 years young and weighs 16 pounds.

Meet Nessa, hopefully, she will start to smile soon, in the meantime, she is cared for at Muttville

Nessa’s foster home writes, “Nessa may be a senior, but she is a CUTE as any puppy! It’s all in the eyes, her small and stout body and her gorgeous hair! Nessa is super laid back. She has no problem with other people, dogs and a baby in the house. She loves to lay on the floor wherever people are and she likes walking around to check out what her people are doing. She enjoys the fresh air, smelling plants and watching my dogs running around. She walks somewhat slowly because of some stiffness, but I’ve seen her run to the water bowl or try to catch up with everyone else! She enjoys the dog park and car rides and my family loves having her around. Attention, exercise and being in a home environment is helping Nessa transition from grieving a very hard loss, to letting herself live again. She has sooo much personality in her eyes that when I’m not around her, I find myself missing her. She’s low-key and as sweet as can be. She now wags her tail when she sees us, progress! I love having her around and I know her next family will adore her as much as her first!”

Woofs - Daily life at Muttville

Success Story "Scupper" aka Lincoln

Success Story "Scupper" aka Lincoln

Adopting a hospice dog is really about appreciating the joys of life. Fospice boy Scupper is truly living it up:

We fospiced Lincoln in August. As you can see in the photo, he is doing well. While he is blind, it does seem that a bit of hearing has come back to him. Not much hearing but some high pitch sounds. His fur has grown in and he quickly learned how to use the doggie door to go outside. He is house trained. He enjoys exploring the yard and car rides. In fact he drove with us thrown Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Ohio, And Colorado this winter where he enjoyed playing in the snow. He is back home safe and sound where he is going in and out of the dog door all day even with his hip arthritis and blindness. He is a brave little guy.

Lincoln is super sweet too! His personality is really blooming. He likes to play and gets very animated. He also really enjoys being held and actually jumps into our arms in the morning when we wake him up. He hugs us when we hold him. So sweet. He loves walks but he is slow so we call his walks “sniffs” instead.

Lincoln eats well (most of the time!) He loves the kibble brand which Sherri fed him so we have continued to feed him the same brand. And we discovered he loves milk, although we have to give him lactose free b/c he appears to be lactose intolerant. Funniest part of his eating desires is his absolute crazy love for apples. We are cautious to ensure he doesn’t have the core or the seeds and we only feed him a little bit every few days. We’ve never had a dog love apples so much. Very funny.

We changed his name to “Scupper" because he seems to be able to hear the strong consonants and syllables better than “Lincoln” In fact his ears really perk up any time we call out “Scupper!!" which never seemed to happen with the name Lincoln.

We are very happy with the little guy and he seems to be happy with us too.

Dan and Kim
