Please take the time to read the entire profile. We spend alot of time putting as much info in them as possible. Thank you in advance.

Zina is a stunning young Belgian Malinios girl. She is a sweet girl who needs a family that understands the breed. She is a great girl and would love to have a job. She is a stunning fawn color with natural ears and tail. She is a medium sized girl who has a lot of personality for a dog her size. She is a great girl who has had such a rough start in life and we want to make sure that the home she goes to is her forever home. She is an amazing girl.
Zena came to us from her past owner. They had adopted her from a shelter when she was younger and tried to work with her and give her the best home that they could. She was a shell of a dog and so thin she could barely stand. They worked to get her back to health, However they were not ready for a breed of this type and their lifestyle was just not a good fit. They were college students with a lot of people in and out as well as a lot of things going on in their lives. They did everything they could for her but it was not a good fit. They tried to work with “trainer” but she had no actual training or certifications, and only made the situation worse. The trainer didn’t understand the breed, and had no idea what she was doing. This poor girl deserves a home who understands what she is.
Zena is a great girl she loves attention and adores her family. She is amazing with the people she knows and loves to play. She does best in a home with out a lot of foot traffic. She is a Malinois and acts like it in every way. She is high prey drive, loves to play fetch and learn new things. She loves her family, and will protect them with her whole being. She loves to have a good time and wants to be someones best friend. She does ok with other dogs as long as she is properly introduced. She is fearful of new dogs at first and can be reactive at first. But once she knows they mean her no harm she LOVES to play. She is an amazing girl for anyone who knows the breed!
Zena is up to date, dewormed, flea treated, spayed, and microchipped. She is house broken, crate trained, and does well on leash. She loves to go for walks, loves to ride in the car, and just wants to have a good time. She is great with people after she has been introduced. She just needs a slow introduction, and then she loves to play. She doesn’t like to be mounted, but no one does. She is good with people but needs a home with no small kids. She loves to do things and would do ok in a home with out a yard if she gets enough exercise. She is not a dog park type dog but loves to go for walks and hikes. She is a happy healthy girl with a heart of gold.

We spend a lot of time trying to get to know the dogs in our program as best as we can. This means that we have spent time introducing them to dogs, cats, kids, animals, people and as many things as we can. We try to do as much as we can to evaluate them, both with in our group and if the dogs come from other rescues or shelters their evaluations as well. However dogs are individuals and will react to different situations differently. This means that we do not know how a dog will react in every situation. We give out our best guess based off information provided but the handler of a dog and the way they are introduced to a situation makes a huge impact. So if you have any questions of how to introduce a dog to your home, please let us know and we will provide as much info as we can from pamphlets to helping find a trainer in your area.
Our rescue aims to help dogs who are passed by and over looked by most rescues and people. We help the dogs who are in need of medical care, vetting, training and breeds that most will not help with. In most shelters if you are large dog, a big dog, or a male dog; from the moment you walk in you are on barrowed time. If you have docked ears or are a guardian breed your time was over before you walked in the doors. We aim to save these dogs and give them a second chance. Please help us save more lives by helping with our medical bills as they grow. This year has already been hard and we have many medical dogs in need.

If you would like to adopt this pet please send us an email. Applications will be sent to you via email. We do our best to get back to emails in 24 hrs. If it has been longer then that please resend another email. We would love to hear from you. We welcome any questions that you may have. Our goal is to find the right fit for every home, not just any home!
We have been informed that some of the links to email us regarding our adoptable dogs are not working. This has been on going for a few weeks with petfinder and a few other links. If you find this to be an issue that you are having please send an email directly to us at:
If you are inquiring on a specific pet we do ask that you put the name of the pet in the subject line. So we know who it is that you are inquiring regarding. Thank you in advance for understanding as we work through this.
As with any rescue we are always in need of donations. MANY of our dogs come in with special needs or medical issues. These need to be resolved before going home. If you would like to make a donation toward a dogs medical care you can use our paypal address you can also email us for a physical address. We are always in need of dog food, soft food for some of our special needs dogs, collars, leashes, crates, and toys!

Listed puppies as Mastiff-Doberman mix. Told the whole store of the parents, what they looked like, how the doberman accidently got pregnant with the mastiff.... 6 months ish later, we dna test the dog (due to doubting the breeds), to find it is 50/50 staffordshire terrier with doberman. Pit Bull is a harder sell. When confronted with this information, Trisha threatened to come take the dog back, and to put a restraining order on me. She didn't like that I told her she was still under investigation with the Sherriff of Yakima Valley's Plice Dept. The Sherriff told me they receive a LOT of complaints about this lady.
