Blanca – Oakland, CA

BlancaMartinezNameBlanca is a charming 6-8 year old muffin who was found stray and brought to the shelter where she was terrified and shut down.  She’s only about 31lbs but she has a huge (and healthy) heart and an even bigger personality!  She is an active girl who loves her walks and play sessions with the resident wirehaired pointing griffon male as well as snuggle time in her crate.  Blanca is crate, house, leash and sofa trained.  She is good with dogs with careful introductions and would do wonderfully with a submissive male.  Would you have have a place for Blanca to hang her little coat? If your information is not on file, our application can be found here:

Fergus – Van Nuys, CA

9yo Fergus was surrendered to the East Valley shelter in Los Angeles due to a divorce. He has perked up in his foster home and is quite a character.  He is very people focused and affectionate with people but he’s not a fan of other dogs. Fergie loves to nap on sofas but would also be up a couple of nice walks daily.  A former outdoor dog, Fergus has adapted to and is embracing an indoor life.  He is crate and house trained (knows how to use a doggy door) but will need a little refresher on leash matters.  This endearing senior is quite healthy.  His eyes are fine; his teeth have some tartar but some raw meaty bones could help clean his choppers and stimulate his gums.  Fergus is about 50lbs.
