Yoda - Boise, ID (2/2/20 still avail)
Meet Yoda! He is a 12 yr old, 65 lb, neutered male.
Sweet Yoda is a 65 lb super senior at 12 years old, so he comes with the typical lumps and bumps and a little arthritis. The vet indicated that he is deaf and bloodwork showed signs of Cushing’s disease. He has a funny looking ear but we think it just adds to his charm!
Yoda is a gentle and affectionate boy! He gives kisses and vigorous tail wags to show his appreciation of the care and attention that volunteers provide. Yoda has been known to enjoy burrowing into blankets & making cute sounds. He also likes to roll on his back in the grass.
He rides well in the car, and sometimes stands at the windows to take in all the good smells. He walks well on leash and prefers ‘going’ instead of ‘resting’. To pass the time by himself, he likes stuffed kongs. We’ve learned that there isn’t a treat that he doesn’t like and takes treats with a gentle mouth...adorable!
Yoda has been tested with another large dog…We believe that he could live with other dogs with the proper introduction. At his age, he deserves the comfort of a loving home. Yoda would do best in a home without cats or young children. Older, respectful kids or teenagers would be best for Yoda.
To receive an adoption application for Yoda, please email us at or visit : Greenheartrescue.org. We require a home check for potential adopters.
Background: Yoda was pulled from an overcrowded California shelter on May 4th, 2019 along with Phasma, Jedi, & Chewy. This is how he got his Star Wars themed name. May the 4th be with you!
Sissy and Buddy - Boise, ID (2/2/20 Buddy still available)
Meet Sissy and Buddy! They are 16 yr old Chihuahuas. Sissy is 5 lbs and spayed and Buddy is 10 lbs and neutered.
***Update, Sadly, Sissy has crossed the Rainbow Bridge, but Buddy is still looking for his forever home.
Buddy & Sissy are a bonded pair, which means they must be adopted together. Sissy and Buddy need a nice quiet home – probably with no small children. They do just fine with the other dogs and cats in their foster home!
They are both 16 years old – good teeth, altered and UTD on all shots. Overall health is pretty good – but they need a warm couch and love. They are scared and would love someplace quiet and filled with love. Missy weighs 5 pounds and Buddy weighs about 10. If you have room in your heart and couch please let us know ASAP!
Sissy loves the sunshine! She’s not crazy about being held, but she now has a 30 second window that allows me to hold her like a baby before she starts squirming and acting like, well, a chihuahua.?That’s longer than it was a couple of weeks ago. I would never force her to be held since she’s not fond of it, but I do have to pick her up to bring her in and out of the house.
Due to their age & health they are considered “Adoptable Hospice dogs” and ARE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. They are maintaining their current health status and we are looking for a special someone to become their forever family for the remainder of their golden years. If you’re interested in adopting this adorable pair please email us for an adoption application. Email: email@example.com. We require a home check for potential adopters.
Kiki - Boise, ID (2/2/20 still available)
Meet Kiki! She is a 10 yr old, 14 lb, female spayed Shiba Inu mix.
We pulled Kiki from an overcrowded Utah shelter in February 2019. We think she’s at least 10 years old. She is a feisty, playful little lady, full of personality. She is a sweet lap dog that appreciates the comfort of a safe and loving home.
As with all of our dogs, Kiki was taken to the vet shortly after we rescued her. Sadly, her bloodwork showed that she is in kidney failure. Fortunately, at this time, Kiki has a strong appetite, which makes it easier for us to give her supplements for her kidneys. In addition to cooking for her, we give Kiki Azodyl & Epakitin, two supplements that benefit dogs in kidney failure.
She’s also a big fan of raw goat’s milk. Kiki is happy and maintaining without any signs of illness at this time and for that, we are grateful because she is a well-loved member of the Green Heart Family. Kiki is considered an “Adoptable Hospice dog” and IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION.
She is maintaining her current health status and we are looking for a special someone to become her forever family for the remainder of her golden years. Kiki will need follow up vet visits every 6 months to monitor her bloodwork and will need to remain on the kidney supplements combined with a balanced cooked diet. Kiki is also currently on kidney supplements: Azodyl & Epakitin, as seen on our Amazon wishlist . If you’re interested in adopting Kiki please email us at for an adoption application or visit Greenheartrescue.org. A home visit will be required to adopt Kiki.
