Winnie, Alameda

WinnieNameWinnie2NameWinnie is a delightful 2-3 year old girl who is very affectionate and loves to snuggle.  She seems to be housebroken, is crate-trained and will need a refresher on leash training.  She will have accidents in her crate but only if there is a blanket in it.  Winnie loves playing with water and has been fine with the standard poodles in her foster home.  She has also played wonderfully with a 10-month Bull Terrier male.  Winnie is currently in the Sacramento area.  Winnie is about 35 pounds.  Please enjoy this video of the little dumpling.


Chai – Turlock


8/27 Update:  Chai has fully recovered from her mange and skin infections; and she has been spayed.  This incredibly sweet little 36lb girl is now ready for an adventure in a new home.  Many thanks to Robert Waugh for fostering this little pumpkin, nursing her back to health and giving her some structure and boundaries.  She is great with the male pit bull in her foster home but can be dominant with the female pit bull there.

Meet Chai (rhymes with Hi), an incredibly sweet and cuddly girl that we pulled from the Modesto shelter this week. She’s being treated for a blood infection from a severe skin infection and a likely weakened immune system. Her interim foster mom reports that she is getting perkier with each day and is a super 31lb snuggle bug. Chai will need to gain a few pounds and recover from her infections before she can be spayed so she won’t be available for several weeks. She’s about 1.5 to 2 years old; so far, she seems interested in other dogs and not in a bad way. I just want her to recover and decompress before we attempt any dog:dog introductions. Thank you, Kari Young Paradiso, for pulling her, giving up your day to spend it at the vet with her and for the interim housing. Please stay tuned for more information on this little pumpkin!

Miko – San Francisco

MikoName4yo Miko is a delightful tank girl! Her owner was seriously disabled in an auto accident a few years ago and had to move back in with his mother. Sadly, she passed away earlier this year and the house has been sold. Miko’s owner is now living with a friend in no-pets housing. Miko LOVES other dogs, even the ones that snarf at her. She lived with (and was bossed around by) a 10lb female chihuahua. She ignores cats as long as they don’t move; she’ll chase dashing cats but has not caught up to any of them yet. Miko is 42 pounds but can benefit from a slight Weight Watchers program. This chunky busybody is crate, leash and house trained. She’s also a trancer! Check out this goofy girl:

Stoli – Porterville

Stoli is a sweet little girl whose family had to move where pets weren’t allowed. Stoli is a little over a year old (born 10/14/12); and she weighs all of 38lbs. Stoli has been wonderful with her family’s 1.5yo little girl that she grew up with. This little pumpkin is leash, obedience, house and crate trained. Her foster parents say she is a total love bug with all people but is food and toy aggressive with other dogs. She has too much interest in the kitties to be trusted. She’s very good with other dogs when on leash but can get bossy when playing loose. Does anyone have room for this energetic little girl? She promises to be a good girl once you wear her out.P.S. You can follow her on Roland BT’s FB page:
Here’s a cute little Flipagram of her:


RoxieRoxie was involved in an incident where she grabbed a tiny Shih Tzu and shook it.  The Shih Tzu did not die from the injuries but they were severe and the chances of her surviving surgery were not good so she had to be euthanized. Due to this incident, sweet Roxie has been designated a “Vicious” dog in the county of San Mateo.  She is a very loving and affectionate girl with people and can be good with medium/large dogs on a short-term basis as long as there is a slow and careful introduction.  We are looking for a special home for Roxie – a bull breed savvy home located in a jurisdiction outside of San Mateo without restrictive requirements for dogs carrying her label.  This little lovebug is 4 years old (born April 2010); and she weighs about 45lbs.   She can be sound sensitive and will alarm bark at noises that she perceives as irregular or are threats/intrusions (she has re-directed at other dogs by growling at them). For this reason, Roxie’s ideal home is one where she’s the only pet. She has been great with the 11yo boy who was her best friend in her former home. Roxie is crate, leash and house trained. She is fostered in San Francisco.
