Gronk in Santa Clara, CA – Adopted!


UPDATE: Gronk is recovering from demodectic manage and is on his final treatment.  He is actually not as high energy as originally thought – he’s a typical Bull Terrier who is pretty chill after a couple of two daily long walks.  As a shelter favorite, he is spending time at a staff member’s office where he likes to hang out under a bed with blankets after his walks. The shelter will start crate training him this week in preparation of us taking him into our adoption program. He seems to be house trained as he will wait for his walks to do his business; and he hasn’t had any accidents in the office. He did well with a couple of intact male Pit Bulls when he was still intact, a couple of female Pit Bulls when he was neutered and he completely ignores the small dogs that snark at him when he walks by their kennels. He’ll be walked by some kenneled kitties this week.  Gronk is truly a diamond in the rough.   More about mange can be found here:
Gronk Fun Fact:  After his afternoon walk, Gronk likes to go underneath his Kuranda bed, pull in his blanket and toys and look at you until he falls asleep.
He is spazzy, he is a force to be reckoned with and he is ridiculously sweet. He is Gronk! This busybody is about 3-4 years old; and he is ready to leave the shelter life way behind him! He can get overstimulated easily and will redirect with love nips so he’ll need to learn some boundaries and manners. He is wonderful with people and tested nicely with other dogs. We do not know how he is the kitties and kiddies. C’mon – you need some Gronk in your life! He’s looking for a foster spot so that he can enter our adoption program…won’t you make that wish come true for him?

Zeus in Sebastopol, CA – Adopted!

ZeusBundocksNameHello! My name is Zeus. Everyone here is trying to figure me out. I can tell you this, I LOVE female humans but there is something about the men I do not like. They make me nervous. I am not a fan of kitties or other dogs. I would prefer to have you all to myself. When all of these things are not in my environment, I will be the most loving dog you have ever met. I will sit in your lap and snuggle with you. When I am with you, my tail says everything I am thinking. I really want you to stay with me all day because if you do, be ready for some sweet kisses and lots of tail wagging. I am 2 years old and I weigh in at about 50lbs.

PriscillaNameHello everybody! My name is Priscilla and I want you to know I really like to be petted. I haven’t met a dog I didn’t like. Okay, I will admit I can be a little “Diva” by barking until you give me a treat. Did I mention I like to be petted? I love, love, love laps! If you have one, I am in it. I am the same with couches. If you have one, I am on it.  Oh, and the petting…LOVE IT. My favorite guy here is Patch. Some say we even look alike. I am really into opening heavy doors.

Brownie in Sebastopol, CA

BrownieNameMy name is Brownie because I am sweet like the treat! I am 2-3yo spayed female and I weigh about 40lbs. My favorite male BT just went to his new home and I miss him because we hung out in the same kennel. At least I have another guy here I like, but I can be picky about who I hang out with. I don’t mind listening to your corrections because I’m eager to learn. My tail goes non-stop! They call me a “Wiggle Butt”. When given treats, which I LOVE, I will always take them gently. I get excited when I first see people but I relax after a couple of minutes. I just can’t help myself from being so happy!
