If you are interested in adopting one of our special dogs, please send us an email or give us a call, we welcome the opportunity to talk about our dogs! Download our adoption application and complete the form. Please note that we require a fenced yard and you must be at least 25 years of age to adopt a dog from DJDR. Upon approval of your application, we will contact you to set up a meet and greet. The next step is a sleep over and if all goes well, we will complete the adoption process with our adoption agreement. Please keep in mind that we do not do same day adoptions and that we may receive several applications for one dog. In that case, our adoptions board will pick the best match for the dog. We do allow out of state adoptions.

Our adoption donation is $200.00 for a fully vetted dog. This will help the sanctuary cover costs of caring for the dogs. Vetting, feeding, special therapies are just some of the expenses that your donation goes towards. We feel this is a very reasonable fee and of course we are happy to except a larger donation if you so choose. 


Scarlet - Luxating Patellas

We call this spitfire Miss Scarlet.  She is a 2 year old, 100% Border Collie and would love to prove it to you BC fans!  Scarlet was born with luxating patellas that cannot be surgically corrected.  Look at that face, can you tell that this condition does not slow her down one bit?  She may experience early onset arthritis but in the meantime she wants to be a high energy BC and has a very high drive to work.  Scarlet would thrive in a home that understands this drive and would perhaps give her the opportunity to herd or do agility.  Smart as a whip this one...

Clancy - Deaf


This boy!  Clancy is a 1.5 year old Catahoula pup that is not only beautiful but very smart.  He is med-high energy and loves to play with the pack!  Clancy is deaf, outgoing and learning hand signals.  He is going to be med/large in size and would love to find a family to call his own.  Such a sweetheart... 

Gentry - Deaf

 Take a look at this beauty!  Gentry is a 1.5 year old Catahoula, sibling to Clancy.  He is super smart, high energy and always ready to play.  And does this boy have a great smile!    Gets along well with others and is looking for a job.  Gentry is also learning basic hand signals and is catching on quickly!  

Jupiter - Deaf


Take a look at this handsome boy!  Jupiter is a 1 year old, deaf, standard Aussie.  He recently came into our program unvetted and knowing nothing.  He is so smart and quickly learning how to walk nicely on a leash and a few hand signals.  Jupiter is full of energy and gets along very well with other dogs.  This fabulous boy would make a great family member, running partner, agility pro, you name it.

Abner - Deaf & Sight Impaired


If you are looking for the greatest companion dog ever, meet Lil' Abner!  He is a mixed breed dog, 3 years old, and loves to be with his person!  He also gets along well with others, is house trained and has good manners.   

Maybelle & Josephine - Blind

These girls have captured our hearts at DJDR.  Meet the blind sisters from Montana!  Maybelle and Josephine are BONDED, 4 year old, Great Pyrenees that lived the last year of their lives in an enclosed trailer.  I will spare you the details of the condition they arrived in, and instead focus on the progress they are making.  They have now been spay, had dentals, and have had their terribly infected ears cleaned and treated.  Next on the list are their first baths and appointments at the animal eye clinic as well as at the WSU neurology dept.  After their vetting is complete the girls will be available for adoption, but only together! 

Frannie - Deaf


Just look at those freckles!  Frannie is a deaf, 5 month old, Red Heeler/Aussie mix.  She is a tiny girl and will only weigh about 20lbs.  So stinking' cute and gets along well with all of the dogs at the ranch.  She does like to chase kitties, so keep that in mind.   Lovable girl that loves to sit in your lap!

Ollie - Deaf


That face!  Meet Ollie, a 1.5 year old, deaf, Aussie Doodle.  This fabulous boy is very well trained, full of joy and loves to play!!  You can't go wrong with this special boy!
