    Coco

    Sweet Coco is a Border Collie/Labrador mix that will be 6 years old on July 1st. She is my wife and I's first dog. We adopted Coco in Arkansas. I never really had a dog and she truly got our hearts. From as long as I can remember, she loves to give kisses to everyone (she is very affectionate) and also loves to play fetch. Her favorite toy is a mini soccer ball I gave her. She also gets really excited when someone comes to the house and wants to make friends immediately. She loves to go to Camp and play with her friends (she usually is exhausted after Camp). She is really intelligent and sometimes we think she understands more than we think.

    Ossie

    Ossie is a 2.5-year-old Cavalabradoodle (mom is King Charles Cavalier and dad is Mini Labradoodle). He is our family's first pet. We really got him for our 10-year-old daughter, but he definitely won our whole family's hearts. It's a good thing he's cute because he is definitely mischievous sometimes. He loves stealing clean laundry and shoes! Ossie loves running around with his buddies at Camp! When he's not at Camp, he loves barking at birds from the safety of our sliding door and chasing tennis balls around with his human siblings. He gives the best hugs and loves taking naps on the couch.

    Blu

    "We rescued Blue on October 8th of last year. He came all the way from Texas. Blue has settled nicely and provides endless entertainment. He loves his furry brother 'Lil Tucker and whenever he gets excited whether it's about receiving a treat or going for a walk, he jumps on his brother's back. It's sort of his think. Blu enjoys cozy mornings curling up in his bed while Mom works and then chatting endlessly throughout the day with Dad, making sure Dad is aware of his presence. His favorite thing to do is go on a walk and he follows behind his big brother the whole way. He loves visiting Camp Bow Wow and races to the door to play! We are fortunate to be part of the Camp Bow Wow family!"

While at Camp, you can often find him either playing with his friends, napping in the corner/on the bridge because he is pooped from all of the playing, following a Camp Counselor around to get pets, and/ or playing in the pools/running to eat the water coming out of the Camp Counselor's hose. Roy loves belly rubs, pup cups, playing fetch, and trying to get his 2 cat brothers at home to play with him.

He's a lover, a ham for attention, and he'll happily test the bacon first to make sure it's cooked properly.

    Luka

    From Luka's Mom: "He may look like a wolf but he's also as lazy as a house cat. Luka loves going on car rides, going to the dog park and his daily naps. Luka is very shy with other dogs but once he's comfortable he likes to run around with others. If you look into his multi colored eyes you'll see a soft hearted good boy who loves his blankie." 

    Luka is a sweetheart and we love having him at Camp!

    Cedar

    Cedar came to my life as a healing pup - after losing three of my elderly dogs within six months, it was time to mend the space in my heart with a new friend. Cedar trees are a medicinal and spiritual healing tree, honored by my native heritage, and so Cedar's name fit his life role perfectly. He was rescued out of a feral situation involving 200 dogs a little over 4 years ago, and I am honored to be chosen to be his person, and to still be connected with the rescuers and over 150 of the adopters still today. Cedar and I have been through a lot of life and adventures in our four years together, but I bet he'd tell you his favorite pastime is how much he loves his pack of rescue friends. He loves his feral barn kitty playmates, as well as his once feral mustang friend Sweetpea. But the pal he spends most of his time with with his macaw buddy Keoke, who is the "official manager" of my art studio! These two are a hoot together! Cedar is the best friend a girl could ask for, probably the closest friend I've ever had.

  • February 2023 Camper of the Month

    Lil' Tucker

    We adopted Lil' Tucker from an adoption event when he was 4 months old. He traveled to Oregon from Texas and won our hearts immediately. He was 18 lbs at four months and we were told he wouldn't get to more than 45 lbs. Now, a year and a half later at 80 lbs, he's a big fur ball of love. He has a favorite blankie that he likes to cover him at night and loves when he's getting hugs. When we mention 'do you want to go to Camp Bow Wow?' he starts wagging his tail with excitement and looking for his leash. When we told Tucker that he was Camper of the Month, he was so excited, we celebrated with a puppaccino! Thank you, Camp Bow Wow!!

  • October 2022 Camper of the Month

    Porter

    Porter came into our family via Oregon Dog Rescue when he was just a puppy old enough to adopt out. Originally from Porterville, California! He loves balls & water, but not balls in the water! Porter can be very shy and it takes him quite some time to warm up to new people. Porter serves as neighborhood watch for all emergency vehicles and sounds his own howling alarm every time he hears a siren. (Just in case you aren't paying attention.) Porter is such a happy guy; especially when he gets to go see all his friends at Camp Bow Wow. He is particularly fond of all the individual attention he receives from his many girlfriends. Porter is so lucky to have such a safe, clean and caring place to just be the best dog he can be!
