Pet of the Month

 

 

The Nobel Kiva

Matthew Ruona

Kiva's best skill is that she makes friends everywhere we go! She loves everyone and with such a sweet temperament in a giant body she draws everyone in.

Kiva's favorite places are the coast and anywhere with snow. She can run for hours through the shallow surf at the coast and never wants to leave. She's equally at home in mountains and lets loose and instantly turning into a puppy again!

Kiva loves her stuffed hedgehog. Every pet store she have ever been in she finds one and picks it out. She has gotten one every year for her birthday since we have figured out how much she loves them.

Unfortunately, Kiva is on her last days. This old girl has been on many adventures and brought so many people joy. She will be missed by many when she is gone.

Who doesn't love a little Sugar?

Matthew Ruona

Sugar spent several years as a therapy pet visiting hospitals, nursing homes and hospice facilities, bringing joy and comfort to all around her. 

Last year she came down with degenerative disc disease and is now partially paralized. She has a wheel chair and still loves to travel, especially to the Oregon coast where she hopes to move wih her family his year. 

She still excels at bringing a smile to everyone's face, proving that you don't have to be perfect to show how much you care about others. 

Sugar loves to play at the beach chasing small squeaky balls and is always ready for a good meal of Nurti Source bison and chicken.

Ain't she sweet?

Ivory - What a Sweet Pup

Matthew Ruona

Ivory is a vibrant, strong, loving 14.5yr old Stafford Pitty. She loves people and attention (which she gets a lot of) She has called Oregon her home since 2005 when she moved with her family from Colorado.  Along with meeting new people and getting them to love on her, licking/kissing any and everything, she also enjoys having intense stare contests with her uncle or stealing a kiss during her walk by. Her favorite foods are bananas, carrots and now the cheese hearts from Four Paws on the Beach. 

Ivory is her own pup. She is strong willed and sneaky yet loving and smart. She is a blessing to her family and all she meets. She has touched the hearts of so many and will continue to do so as long as she is able.  

"Smile" Claudette!

Matthew Ruona

In addition to being an expert snuggler, Claudette is a nature in front of the camera. In fact, she has even learned to "look" at the camera when asked. 

Claudette came into her family when she was just a day old. Her pug mama had 8 puppies for her first litter and rejected all of them after a 16hr labour. Claudette and 3 of her siblings were surrendered to Pacific Pug Rescue where her adoptive mama hand raised them until they could be adopted out. But early on, Claudette's foster family knew that she was destine to stay. Being the runt and hand raised she's had lots of special health problems, but she's a happy and healthy pug who loves everyone. She's even perfected playing the touch game.

Her favorite place to walk is at the beach north of the Seaside Promenade and she loves playing with her Puppy Kong toys. 

Her extra special diet is Royal Canine Urinary + Hydrolyzed Protein kibble, but for special treats she gets Northwest Naturals Freeze Dried Chicken and Salmon.

Hugo. I only have eyes for you.

Matthew Ruona

Meet Hugo

Hugo is a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog learning to do some of the things Swissies were bred for: at two years old he's started packing and next year (when his bones have stopped growing) he'll learn how to pull a cart. This year he's also been learning obedience and some tricks including "shake" (which really resembles a high-five), a truly deafening "speak", and and adorable "whisper". He's keen to learn roll over but requires a big room in the house— he's longer than his owner's couch when he sprawls out, and coordination isn't one of his strong suits.

Hugo has only been to the beach twice, but Manzanita is his go-to spot and he loves to run and play in the sand. Typically he plays at east Multnomah County dog parks and walks the Tilikum Crossing Bridge in Portland.

His favorite toy is his big red jolly-ball on a rope: he grabs it by the knot and gallops around the yard, clocking himself in the head with it as he goes.

His favorite food is PetSmart's Simply Nourish Large Breed, but he also gets a little cooked beef liver or chicken gizzards on top. He also loves watermelon and frozen strawberries, and would probably sell his own soul for chunky peanut butter.

Blue eyes are an occasional trait with Swissies and his owners fell in love with his adorable derpy face as soon as they saw him.

Good to Meet You Sheba

Matthew Ruona

Meet a dog with a firm grip

Sheba is the most friendly 5-year old you will ever meet. She likes to shake hands as much as a politician. A native Oregonian, Sheba enjoys long walks on the beach — and she's not picky —any beach will do and she enjoys stopping by Four Paws on the Beach for a quick treat and ear scratch. Offer her one of her favorite treats (Lotus Small Bites, chicken flavored) and you'll get both a shake and a wag.

Meet Rosie

Matthew Ruona

Wagging Is Her Specialty

Born in December, 2015, Rosie is as adorable as her picture. She's a resident of Nehalem, OR and absolutely loves everyone she meets. She and her owner, Bruce, are frequent visitors of Four Paws On The Beach and Nehalem Point.

Rosie can walks on her hind legs—especially when she's properly motivated with liver treats.

Rosie's favorite food is Call of the Wild Puppy Bison and she is happy playing with her chicken toy that holds 3 chicks. 

Mabel, A Life Well Lived

Matthew Ruona

Meet Mabel 

{2013 – 2016}

Mabel was a dog that brought sunshine and happiness to everyone around her. She was the beloved companion of Aimee and Heln and lost her battle with Chondroblastic Osteosarcoma on July 2nd but she lived life the right way up until the very end.

Mabel love everyone. And we do mean everyone. She never missed a chance to show her skills, mastered her commands at an early age, and had her special Lambie toy. She loved to play at Magnuson Park, The Arboretum, Marymoor Dog Park, and of course, Manzanita Beach

Mabel brightened everyone's day with her presence, and she will be missed. 

Meet Meadow!

Matthew Ruona

Meadow is a California dog that loves Oregon!
 

Meadow stopped by Four Paws on the Beach during her recent trip to Oregon (but is not moiving here). Meadow is a English Creme Retriever and along with her owner, Connie, loves to paddle board and swim.

She's almost 2 two years old and is a trained therapy pet and volunteers at schools to work with kids and other events. Her early puppy training has come in handy as she loves to interact with kids and doesn't mind being handled.

While at Four Paws On The Beach, meadow picked up a sporty sweater to go along with her fur coat. 

Cooper is in The House

Matthew Ruona

Hi Cooper!

Born in July, 2013, Cooper is a master of: "sit", "stay", and "leave it". He loves to play in the park and never missed a chance to socialize with his buddies. In fact, he loves everyone. 

Cooper's favorite toy was his very first, a little bear. Despite the variety of toys at his disposal, he always comes back to his tried and true bear. 

At mealtime, it's nothing for the best for Cooper. He loves his Evangers Chicken.

When Cooper is not playing in the park or chowing down he loves to spend time cuddling with his owners who rescued him when he was 8 months old. 

Meet Frankie

Matthew Ruona

Meet Frankie Kilby

Frankie excels at a number of tricks: sit, lay down, shake, roll over (almost), standing on back legs for about 30 seconds. He pushes his owner with his paw when she's napping on the couch & it's time for his dinner, finds treats hidden under towel, really good at treat toys, winks back at his owner and can carry pillows/cushions much heavier than himself (he's 12 pounds).

Favorite Place to Walk, Hike, and Play: The beach! Also some nice dog parks near us; walking around our neighborhood; running around the public fenced tennis court nearby when no one's using it; and racing around the house

Favorite Toy: His Duck. And Bully Stick.

Favorite Food (Brand & Flavor): NOW (grain free) Turkey

Frankie can jump straight up in the air about 3 feet when he see's someone approaching on the sidewalk. He gets very excited when he encounters other dogs or people. Frankie has very long back legs : )

Meet Ali

Matthew Ruona

Meet a fast dog with a gentle heart. 

{ 1998 – 2012 }

We thought it was fitting to have our first pet of the month be a dog that was close to our hearts. Ali (short for Aluminum) was our rescue greyhound that joined our family in 1998. Before we adopted her, she tore up the tracks in Florida and had to endure a life of utilitarian treatment by her handlers. By the time she reached us she needed love above all else. Ali was as tender and gentle as she was fast, but ultimately she preferred taking it slow in warm bed with a good chew toy.

Ironically, she was wasn't keen on going for a run with Matt. As a natural born sprinter, she could only endure 10 minutes of a walk before it became like trying to convince a tired toddler to go to the dentist. Most of all she loved affection and we were honored to have her part of our family for the time shared.

In the end it was clear that she rescued us as much as we did her.
