Sumaya – Watsonville, CA – Adopted!

SumayaXmasThis 7mo muffin was surrendered to the shelter when her owner became homeless. She did wonderfully with the dogs at the shelter as well as the Bull Terriers in her foster home. She loves people and is still all about play, although very rough, and mouthy with lots of jumping and play bows. Sumaya will like be fine with another dog as long as it’s one who’ll be tolerant of her rough play style. She is learning about crates and house training.

Sam Sam – Lynnwood, WA – Placed by Owner


Who would like to foster/foster-to-adopt this older little girl? Sam Sam will be 8 years old in January but she can still be an active girl who enjoys her walks. She’s a compact little 40lb muffin who hasn’t been socialized with other dogs so she can be too forward in meeting them. She might be OK living with a laidback male but may be too mouthy with the kitties. Sam Sam is not a fan of the small dogs. Most of all, Sam Sam LOVES people; and she is one of the biggest cuddle monsters we’ve ever known. She’s ready to leave for the San Francisco area on 11/20 (Sunday) but I thought I’d check in to see if anyone might be local interest in this little gem.

Snoopy in Stanton, CA – Adopted!

SnoopyTableNameSnoopy is a sweet 10mo guy who was surrendered to the shelter due to landlord issues.  He is wonderful with other dogs and has wanted to play with a kitty that he met on a walk.  He’s an active little guy and with his longer legs, would be an excellent candidate for agility work. Snoopy is leash, crate and house trained.

Cash in Concord, CA – Adopted!

CashShelterNameCashShelter2NameCash is a delightful 9mo guy who was surrendered to the shelter when his owner could not afford the surgery to treat the fractured femur bone in his right hind leg.  He has been seen by a GP and an ortho surgeon – as the bones are fusing quite nicely, both vets have opined that the best thing to do is let it heal on its own.  Cash is a very energetic guy who is good with other dogs (we’re not sure how he is with the kitties).  He’s super sweet and very affectionate; this 45lb guy is house and crate trained but will need a bit more work on a leash.  Does anyone have room for this sweet bouncy guy?

Camilla in San Francisco, CA

CamillaSPCANameA Good Samaritan found Camilla, an older lab and 10 mixed puppies in an abandoned, dilapidated trailer in the country. They were all very emaciated and had multiple puncture wounds and lacerations. All but Camilla have been adopted. She is recovering nicely but still has a bit of skin infections to be resolved (she is negative for mange). Camilla is very people and dog friendly but she is not a friend of the kitties. Update: This little dumpling walks perfectly on a leash, loves car rides and is comfortable spending time in a kennel or crate. Camilla is about 4-5 years old; and she weighs around 50lbs.  She is very sweet and gentle; and she is still very confused.  I think that she is afraid to love again for fear of being abandoned yet another time.

Trace in Porterville, CA – Adoption Pending

TraceSmileName TraceDrainsNameOur heartstrings were pulled in a major way when the shelter called us about Trace who is about 7-8 years old – he was not walking and was so depressed. We rescued this sweet guy and after vetting, antibiotics, surgery to remove abscesses on one of his front legs, and a wonderful diet from his foster mom, he is good as new!  He is great with other dogs and finds horses interesting in a good way.  His energy level is pretty low and he is one of most affectionate guys you’ll ever meet. Do you have a spot for this wonderful 45lb guy to hang his hat?

Bentley in San Francisco, CA

BentleyCuteNameBentley is a 2yo guy who wandered into a ranch in Prunedale, CA and made friends with the resident cattle.  We rescued Bentley from the shelter after he recovered from pneumonia. This 50lb guy is good with dogs but unknown with the kitties.  Bentley is crate and leash trained; he keeps his crate clean so we believe that he is house trained.  Does anyone have room in their hearts and home for this sweet and affectionate guy?

Rocky in Sebastopol, CA – Adoption Pending

RockySmileNameRocky became homeless when the mobile home park his family was living on closed. This 15mo guy is super sweet and so people-focused.  He hasn’t been taught any manners but he should learn them quickly as he is so eager to please. Rocky is being crate trained at our interim boarding kennel and he’ll some house training as he lived outside or in the garage in his former home.  He was wonderful with the three toddlers in his former family but his energetic antics might accidentally knock down the little ones.  Although he did not live with other dogs, he was good with the ones in the mobile home park.  We do not know how this 45lb guy is with the kitties.

Oscar in San Francisco, CA

OscarSitMedNameMeet Oscar, a delightful almost 4.5yo (born 4/26/12) guy who is extremely affectionate and people focused.  His energy level is about moderate although you need stand back when he does his daily zoomies around the house.  Oscar is dog-selective…he has met two of my neutered male Bull Terriers without any issues, however he has bitten two Bulldogs in his prior home.  The injuries were not serious (and there’s a chance that he was being territorial).  Taking this into account, we are looking for a home that is experienced with dogs that do not play well with others.  He’s one of the happiest dogs that you’ll ever meet and as much as he loves going on walks, he loves going back home even more and will occasionally bark with joy when he’s approaching the house. Oscar is about 65lbs; and he is house, crate and leash trained.

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!
